During the final episode of Marvel’s ‘Runaways,’ the children of the PRIDE finally get their chance to…run away!
This exciting plot climax has been building throughout the entire first season, while the kids attempted to secure evidence that would send their well-connected parents to jail for their crimes. Unfortunately, and probably not surprisingly, things do not go as planned and the ‘Runaways’ are forced to live up to their name.
While the kids were hiding out in the woods on Mount Hollywood, they are forced to hit the road when they learn that an Amber Alert has been issued for the youngest in their group, the girl with the super strength, Molly Hernandez. On top of that, the group was falsely accused of the murder of Destiny Gonzalez, the teen who was murdered during the PRIDE’s sacrifice at the very beginning of the series.
The ending was very fitting, finally coming full circle with the events that kicked off their crusade against their parents and their actions. Of course, it’s a bitter moment when they end up being accused of killing Destiny, given that they’ve spent the entire series attempting to get enough evidence that proves their parents were behind the murder.
‘Runaways’ was just renewed for a second season at Hulu, and will expand the number of episodes from 10 to 13 for its continuation. Fans can expect to get more info on Jonah’s plan to dig up the living creature buried under Los Angeles, and the PRIDE’s new efforts to undermine and kill him. In addition, now that Karolina knows that Jonah is her biological father, she’ll likely try to learn more about her light-based abilities. Of course, all of that will be more complicated now that teens are actually on the run with the police chasing them!
All ten episodes of ‘Runaways’ Season 1 are now available to stream on Hulu. Check out the clip from the final episode below!
