Ratched Plot and Cast
The first season of Ratched ended differently than what Ryan Murphy and the writers planned, where Nurse Ratched and Briggs started a new life together in Mexico and Nurse Bucket took over Lucia State. Briggs was diagnosed with cancer and found that she was in remission because of a revolutionary medicine connected to mistletoe.
Ratched’s brother Edmund is out and on the run alongside Charlotte, who has multiple personalities, and his girlfriend Louise. After realizing his sister planned to kill him, he is not going to let that die and might now be out for vengeance. There is a possibility that the pair might meet again.
Coming to the cast, we should get to see Sarah Paulson, Finn Wittrock, Cynthia Nixon and Judy Davis in the lead roles. Since it is a new season, we might get to see some new faces.
