Undercover season two continues in the same vein – in the first two chapters it’s evident that they have captured the same magic; there’s an exciting feeling in the pit of your stomach that tells you to binge. Bob returns, but we have to warn you that season two opens up with a tragedy that forms the rest of the story. Kim is killed in the first chapter after she uncovers illegal arms trading. While Bob’s mission is to go undercover and unearth the illegal trading, the second installment of the Netflix series is doused in a strong taste for revenge, making the story have a different angle entirely. It’s not about justice at all – there’s no division between good and evil. Bob is not trying to separate his personal and professional life; there’s a clear wall that’s blurred, and it provides the necessary depth for an exciting, consistent continuation. We see a different Bob entirely, and it forces the audience to question his choices, and ultimately, his ethics. Newer characters are brought to the fold, but the series smartly adopts a two-pronged approach with the narrative; on one side you have the illegal arms trading plot, and on the other, we witness Ferry and Danielle’s life post their conviction. Undercover manages to interweave both stories with Bob being the center-point. It also introduces two villains to seal the series as one of the best. Running the illegal arms trades are the Bergers brothers, Jean-Pierre and Laurent.
