Throughout the history of television, most teen programs have focused on the drama that comes from being a white, suburban, middle-class teenager. While these teens are by no means devoid of emotional stress and trauma, these shows fail to address other issues of race and class that affect so many other teens. For comparison, Reservation Dogs has been a relief.
Stories previously left out of teen shows and television in general have taken the spotlight with this show. The series follows a group of indigenous teenagers who grow up on a reservation and come to terms with their past, their future and their own identities. Since Season 1 has gained a devoted fan base and become a critical darling, the anticipation for Season 2 has only grown. For anyone still wondering when, how and where to watch the show, you’ve come to the right place.

What happened to reservation dogs last season?
Reservation Dogs Season 1 introduced us to the Rez Dogs, Elora Danan, Bear, Willie Jack, and Cheese as they dealt with loss and the trials and tribulations of growing up. When we first meet them, they try to raise money to leave their small reservation community and escape to California, while also mourning the death of their friend Daniel, who died the year before. When their rival gang, the NDN Mafia, drives by and paintballs them, Bear faints and hallucinates a native ghost who gives him life advice, leaving him doubting his place in the community. Throughout the series, the group tries to get in touch with their roots by talking to older members of the community and even learning native-style fighting from Elora’s uncle, Brownie.
In the penultimate episode of the series, we finally realize how Daniel died. In a series of flashbacks of Elora, we realize that after showing signs of misfortune for a long time, Daniel committed suicide, leading many in the group not only to feel grief, but also to feel guilt for his death. Towards the end, the Rez Dogs seem all set to head to California when a tornado forces them to take shelter in the church’s basement with the NDN mafia. There, Bear has another vision and realizes that his fight with the NDN mafia is not over, and he can’t leave. This creates a rift between Bear and Elora as she feels he is immature. The series ends with Elora leaving for California, presumably on the run from her own problems.
