Dirk Gently Holistic Detective Agency Season 2 Recap
Tina, Farah, and Sherlock in Bergsberg ultimately kill the Mage. Dirk goes back to Blackwing with the help of Todd and Amanda to stop the Mage’s warriors from killing Moloch because they are now supporting Suzie. Before heading back to the realms of Bergsberg and Wendimoor, Todd and Amanda briefly find themselves at a location that describes Dirk’s “holistic” nature and how everything is connected.
Dirk and Mona rescue Moloch and bring him back to Wendimoor, where he changes back into a young child. Suzie loses her abilities and is put in a cell. He then starts reestablishing Wendimoor in accordance with his original designs, including reviving the dead who were wiped off by the Mage’s army. After thanking them for their assistance, the child returns Dirk, Todd, Amanda, Mona, and the Rowdy 3 to Bergsberg.
Dirk, Todd, and Farah make the decision to locate Dirk’s detective agency permanently, but they are unaware that Mona has been following them. To assist in keeping an eye out for any other Blackwing targets, Amanda decides to stick with the Rowdy 3. Bart asks to be sent to Blackwing but is horrified to discover that Ken has taken over as facility manager and plans to keep her as a prisoner to do research. Eventually, Friedkin finds himself in the space between realities and comes to an understanding.
