The first season of Critical Role and Amazon Prime Video’s The Legend of Vox Machina has officially come to a close. And while we watched the Briarwoods (Matthew Mercer and Grey Griffin) meet their inevitable end, we were left with a lot of questions. Thankfully, we have known from the beginning that we would be getting two seasons of the animated series. But that doesn’t make the major cliffhanger at the end of season one any easier to deal with. And because I can’t stop obsessing over the show, I have compiled a list of questions I need to be answered when it rolls back around.

Now, I know that you can just watch the live show and get the answers (been there, done that), but it’s safe to say that the crew isn’t afraid to flip the script for this series. So let’s keep an open mind and spoilers for the live show to a minimum. If you haven’t gotten the chance to watch season one of The Legend of Vox Machina, be warned, you are walking into spoiler territory for that. So head over to Amazon Prime Video, binge the show and then come back!

Vax (Liam O'Brien), Scanlan (Sam Riegel), Keyleth (Marisha Ray), Pike (Ashley Johnson), Grog (Travis Willingham), Percy (Taliesin Jaffe) and Vex (Laura Bailey) in The Legend of Vox Machina.

We watch as four dragons descend on Emon and our heroes in the final moments of season one. They managed to face off against Brimscythe (David Tennant), but that took quite a bit of non-planning and luck. Before the fight begins, however, he does mention how he is working alongside a bunch of other ones. Did we really expect them to just walk away after his death? Are they showing up to avenge him, or has this been their plan all along? And how will our heroes beat four dragons? What about the council and all the people just hanging about in town? I may be as good as Grog (Travis Willingham) in the math department, but I know four dragons is four too many.

Is the smoke demon really gone?

While season one of The Legend of Vox Machina dealt heavily with saving Whitestone from the horrors of Lord and Lady Briarwood, we also got Percy’s (Taliesin Jaffe) depressing backstory. And all that vengeance brought with it a pact with a smoke demon who gave him the means to fight all in return for lunch. By the end of the season, Percy has managed to free himself of the demon and Scanlan (Sam Riegel) yeets the pepperbox he is attached to into acid. But we know that demons are a lot harder to kill (thanks, Supernatural) and I have a terrible feeling we are going to be seeing him again.

Will Cassandra be okay?

The Legend of Vox Machina season one ended with Percy leaving Cassandra (Esmé Miles-Creed) to run Whitestone. She is pretty apprehensive; you know, since she worked for the Briarwoods all these years even though it was against her will. And we don’t get the chance to see if the people of Whitestone accept her or if she is even good at the job. While I know season two won’t heavily feature Whitestone, Cassandra or the people, I hope we get the chance to see how they are faring now and if they are back on the right track.

Is Grog safe with Sylas’ sword?

There is a quick “blink and you might miss it” moment in the season finale of The Legend of Vox Machina. And that moment is when Grog picks up Sylas’ sword. It’s brief and ominous and I have all the worries for my spirit animal. During both encounters with Sylas, we could tell that this isn’t a normal sword. It almost sucked up the blood that ended up on its blade. But what magic is this? Is the sword enchanted? Or is it possessed like Percy’s gun was? We saw how easy it was for Percy to become corrupted and he has a bit more wisdom than Grog. We will have to keep a close eye on him next season.

How will Keyleth deal with her near-death experience?

Almost dying sucks for everyone. Been there, done that and I know that walking away from that experience isn’t easy. And Keyleth (Marisha Ray) nearly bought the farm in the end there. She is already an awkward little duck and even turns Vax (Liam O’Brien) away because she needs to focus on her journey. But is this healthy? Is she shutting him out because she is afraid to love someone and lose them? Or is her near-death experience driving her in the direction of work, work, work and no play? One of the things I can’t wait for in season two is watching how Keyleth grows after this.

Is Pike all good?

One of the side stories in season one was Pike’s (Ashley Johnson) spiritual journey. And she managed to find it in herself to accept that she can lead both a life of fun with Vox Machina and also be faithful to the Everlight. But will she find herself questioning her choices again? Will the Everlight allow her to continue down this path? Also, in more important news, “my gnome.” We have all been swooning over Vax and Keyleth, but this little moment between her and Scanlan made my heart pitter-patter. Will we see more gnome love brewing in season two? Or are they destined to be friends forever?

Speaking of Lovers

Season one of The Legend of Vox Machina set up a few budding relationships like Keyleth and Vax, Scanlan and Pike, Grog and sandwiches. But one that was a little less subtle was between Percy and Vex (Laura Bailey). I can’t think about the two of them without thinking about the small moments throughout the entire season and the finale, “darling, take off the mask” moment from the finale. Now that Percy has his horrifying past well behind him (for now), will he be open to forming new relationships going forward? And will Vex be willing to let someone other than her brother behind all of her walls?


Our final question, which really isn’t a question about the series, is on everyone’s mind. When will season two be here?! While we wait patiently (because we are patient people here at GGA) we will be rewatching season one and falling more in love with Grog. We won’t be taking any questions about that at this time. Thanks.
