Arcane Plot and Cast
The second season of Arcane will see Jayce walk back on his promise to give Zaun its independence from Piltover since Jinx carried out a terrorist attack on the latter’s council. Caitlyn could be out for revenge if her mother was hurt or killed, which would put her at odds with Vi, whom Caitlyn had become close with.
Vi might be caught in a difficult situation to help Caitlyn and Jayce to bring her sister to justice, or try to save Jinx from herself, which would put her in opposition with Caitlyn and Jayce. Further details will be revealed once the second season premieres.
