‘Wednesday’ Episode 2 Begins With A Shocking Twist
Rowan is presumed dead at the end of Wednesday Episode 1. That’s a fair assessment considering that an unknown creature ripped open his torso. Ultimately, that creature saved Wednesday’s (Jenna Ortega) life, as Rowan was going to kill her to fulfill a prophecy.

In a half-pedestrian half-canoe race where anything goes, Bianca enlists her mermaid friends to sabotage the other boats so they can gain the upper hand. But two can play this match and on Wednesday he came prepared. With the help of the Thing and some clever canoe machinery, she leads her team to victory, but not before seeing another vision.
Wednesday has more visions in episode 2
While getting her flag from the Crackstone Crypt, Wednesday sees an ethereal version of herself saying, “You are the key.” What that means isn’t clear at this point, but she probably has something to do with the prophecy Rowan is working to fulfill.

‘Wednesday’ Episode 2 Explains Rowan’s Prophecy
As Wednesday confided to the Thing, he worries that he’s going to do something terrible because of Rowan’s vision. So, she arms herself with as much information as she can about Rowan, the prophecy, and the mysterious watermark.
As Mrs. Thornhill (Christina Ricci) explains to Wednesday, that watermark is the symbol of an old student society called The Nightshades. Wednesday then notices that the statue of Edgar Allan Poe is holding a book with the same symbol. Naturally, she decodes the poem, which tells her to break twice, a clever nod to the addams family.
Behind the statue, Wednesday discovers the hidden library where Rowan found the book. Before she can find out much more, Wednesday is kidnapped and the episode ends.
