Arcane is full of Easter Eggs and references to other Riot's stories, besides many clues of what we are yet to see. In this article you'll be able to spot some of the details from the third act.Edit Article
CONTAINS ARCANE SPOILERS.
7th Episode - The Boy Savior
8th Episode - Oil and Water
9th Episode - The Monster You Created
The CouncilWith the launching of the Super Mega Death Rocket, we can imagine we will have a few dead on the Council. We know that Viktor and Jayce are safe, but it is quite likely that we will see other members die. This will probably propel the characters left standing. Jayce will want revenge from this Zaun Attack and because Mel might die or be severely injured, Viktor will probably be injured and will need many augmentations and Caitlyn will probably work even harder to prevent a war between the cities because of what happens to her mother, since she knows more about the attack.
Civil WarThe next season will probably be centered around the conflict between the cities, with characters taking sides. We had plenty of hints to a big conflict between Zaunites and Pilties, and we haven't yet seen this in this season, since Jayce was going to make a peace treaty, but with the Council's explosion this won't be possible anymore.
AmbessaThough she is not named in the series, Mel's mother is called Ambessa, as per the credits. With the war going on in the city, she will probably be around more in the second season, since she was there for that. We can't know how Mel will be, but she showed herself to be very willing to protect her daughter from anything, so she will probably be furious. Another important thing is the man she mentioned that is going after her family. We don't have any confirmation about who he is, but among a few possibilities we have General Du Couteau, Katarina's father who is a powerful Noxus man, Darius, which is a great military leader, or Swain who at this time is probably a renowned strategist, but not a general. It might also be a new, unknown character.
SingedFrom all the characters, Singed was the one who had the most peaceful ending, remembering his daughter. Another possibility that is being brought upon us is that his daughter might be Orianna, the Lady of Clockwork. I don't think this is the case since he is a chemist who knows a lot about biology and botany, and hasn't shown any robotic knowledge in the series. But anyhow we will probably get to know his story in the next season.
WarwickWarwick showed up at the end, tied up in the ceiling of Singed's laboratory, as it was when he had his rework announced for the first time. We don't have any confirmation if we will see truly if he is Vander, since we could only see his profile partially. But we could see that he has a beard. And even though it's more rough than Vander's beard, it might be a result of his fusion with the wolf, since his hand is fuzzy and has claws. Another possibility is that maybe Warwick is the man that killed Singed's daughter and that is a form of revenge, since he himself mentioned that "death can be merciful" and is actually punishing him worse than just killing him.
Ekko and HeimerdingerThis is a new alliance that the series propositioned us. But with Heimerdinger's development, we can see that he will become a more humane scientist, thinking of his inventions as ways to help those who need: the zaunites. It is quite likely that we will see him taking the Zaun side in the war. And we should see both of them working together on Ekko's Z-Drive.
ViktorWe couldn't see the Glorious Evolution happening fully, but we can be sure that he will have a very complicated second season. He still hasn't been able to destroy the Hexcore and was now hit by the rocket. In the second season he will probably have more time in the episodes to develop his robotic skills and start helping the zaunites, probably becoming a pariah by being a zaunite in Piltover.
CaitlynCaitlyn will probably become a key piece in the war, acting in a neutral way to avoid conflicts alongside Vi. Her actions in this period must result in her post as a Sheriff, probably at the end of the second season.
