Episode 8 brings us to the season finale for Part 2 of The OA and finally brings much of the cast to the same place, at the same time, albeit in two different dimensions. Karim makes it all the way through the puzzle house and finds Michelle’s soul in the process. As Nina, OA convinces Hap to show her what’s inside the super secret lab.
The missing are found, but they are transformed, and it’s not clear whether they can be brought back. Steve rejoins the Crestwood gang at D1 Treasure Island and Betty acts as an oracle. The gang follows OA through the clinic in D2, with Betty using her new ability to pinpoint OA’s movements. Buck helps Betty translate her experiences to the others, proving again that he’s also a psychic medium.
The episode opens with the wind blowing through the palm trees on Treasure Island and lightning flashing in the sky. The spirits are restless tonight.
Through the surveillances cameras, Hap sits in his office and watches Nina smoking in the front lobby while she waits to be sent up to his office. Hap and Roberts try to decide what to do about her. They’re confused that she broke out as OA but has returned as Nina. Hap is a little scared of Nina.
