When Beyond Season 1 wrapped up, Holden (Burkely Duffield) and Willa (Dilan Gwyn) seemed to have defeated Frost (Martin Donovan) and Hollow Sky in the process. That should mean we're all in the clear, right? Wrong.
Things in The Realm are never that simple, and Holden's not done with the fallout from Frost's death yet.
"In Season 2, you sort of see them come out and they believe after a little time lapse of a couple months or so that they're finally safe," Duffield told TV Guide. "Maybe they're out of the woods? But very quickly you start to see that Holden is not safe. His family, himself, and his friends are in danger again very soon, and whether it's Hollow Sky or not, he's going to have to figure out a solution or else something bad is definitely going to happen."
On top of stressing about evil organizations out to kill him and everyone he loves, Holden's also got to deal with having powers and resisting the urge to use them. An urge that will undoubtedly grow stronger given he's been sleepwalking at all hours of the night; plus, those nightly excursions come with some pretty terrifying visions.
"You see Holden start to take more and more precautions to try to ensure that he... sleeps through the night, stays in bed, but also not sleepwalk and alert any people that may be looking for him or his family that anything strange is happening," Duffield says. "You see him start to take precautions like tying himself to his headboard every night. Though that seems like a very good idea, it unravels. The consequences of The Realm aren't so easily tied down."
That's a bit of an understatement, and unfortunately Holden's bed is the first to bear the brunt of those consequences.
Holden's dreams won't be the only place touched by The Realm this year. Those monsters we saw trying to cross the bridge in the finale aren't so easily foiled, and something wicked is definitely coming Holden's way when Season 2 returns.
"Holden was the one seeking out The Realm last year, but you definitely see The Realm bleeding into the real world and coming to get Holden this year," Duffield teases. "You will definitely learn a lot more about how powerful and how evil The Realm can be."
