Welcome to the Eden Season 1 Summary
Here are nine of the most important things to remember before watching Welcome to Eden Season 2.
Zoa and select others are invited to a party on a mysterious island
Zoa and four others (Africa, Charly, Ibon, and Aldo) are invited to an exclusive party on a secret island hosted by a new beverage brand. Zoa is told not to bring Plus, breaking the rules and bringing her best friend Judith to the party. Once they arrive on the island, each partygoer will be given a bracelet, but only select ones will light up. While Zoa, Africa, Charly, Ibon, and Aldo are allowed to drink the special drink (Blue Eden) at the party, Judith doesn’t because her bracelet doesn’t light up.
After a wild night of partying and Blue Eden, Zoa, Africa, Charly, Ibon and Aldo wake up on the island with no memory of what happened the night before. Zoa also notes that Judith is missing. A drone then flies past them and takes them to a settlement on the island where humans live. A group of people watch them as they approach. Then a woman named Astrid steps forward and welcomes them to the island called “Eden”.
What happens to Judith?
The next morning after the party, Judith is kidnapped by Orson, a member of the settlement on the island. Since Judith saw Ulsis drown another member of the settlement at the party, Orson and Brenda decide to kill her. They take Judith to the edge of the cliff, paint her arm blue, shoot her in the head, and then kick her off the cliff.
Who dies in Season 1 of Welcome to Eden?
Here is a list of who dies in season one:
- Judith – Brenda shoots her in the head with a nail gun and then kicks her off a cliff.
- Fran – It’s unclear how he dies, but it seems Brenda did the dirty work.
- Aldo – Brenda shoots him in the head with a nail gun.
- David – A member of the Eden Foundation shoots him in the head with a gun.
- Claudia – Brenda shoots her in the head with a nail gun.
- Ulises – Ibon drowns him.
A mysterious person attacks Erick
A masked attacker wearing clothes with the Lilith symbol breaks into Astrid and Erick’s apartment with Ulise’s key card. They fight Astrid and Erick before stabbing Erick in the stomach and running away. The attacker’s identity is not revealed in the first season, but the list of suspects includes the teacher’s pets, Saul and Brenda, or really anyone in the community who is opposed to Astrid and Erick.
A little boy named Isaac lives on Eden
The next day after the party, Zoa sees a little boy in front of her module. She tries to follow him, but he disappears. After being told there are no children on the island, Zoa believes she imagined him. However, we later find out that the boy’s name is Isaac and he is real. He also seems to have healing abilities because he somehow heals Erick with his hands after being attacked. But it’s never revealed exactly who Isaac is and why he’s on the island in the first season. All we know is that he has healing powers and wants to go to the “real” Eden. Could he be Astrid and Erick’s son? And what is the “real” Eden?
What is the Eden Foundation?
What the Eden Foundation really is we never learn in the first season, but we do know that Astrid and Erick are the founders. According to Astrid and Erick, they created the community to protect themselves and a select group of people from the outside world because they believe climate change will soon wipe out humanity. Once someone becomes a member of the Eden Foundation, they are not allowed to leave it. If anyone tries to escape, they will be executed.
There is a hierarchical system in which the members are divided into three levels. The higher the level, the more access a member has. Astrid, Erick, Mayka, Brenda, Orson, Ulises, and Saúl are all level three members.
But there seems to be a deeper and more sinister reason why Astrid and Erick decided to create the Eden Foundation. Hopefully we’ll find out the real reason in Welcome to Eden Season 2.
Will Zoa and Charly Eden escape?
It’s unknown. While Charly makes it to the boat to leave Eden, we don’t get to see the boat he’s on actually departing. So a member of the Eden Foundation could have caught him. On the other hand, Zoa is so close to catching the boat, but then she sees her younger sister Gabi arrive at the island and stops. Zoa is now torn between leaving the island or staying with her sister. We’ll find out what she decides to do in season two.
Africa sends a signal into space
While Zoa and Charly implement their escape plan, Africa sneaks into Astrid and Erick’s apartment and finds a secret room full of computers. She presses a button on one of the computers, accidentally activates a satellite on Isaac’s module, and broadcasts a signal into space. When she tries to exit the secret room using the elevator, the doors close before she can get in. Now she is trapped in space.
The private detective arrives at Eden
After gathering all the information on Ibon and the whereabouts of the other partygoers, PI Brisa finally makes it to the secret island in the season finale. However, she is nowhere near the Eden Foundation grounds yet. I wonder what’s next for Brisa Welcome to Eden Season 2. Will she find and save Zoa and the others?
There’s a lot to do in Season 2 and we can’t wait to see how it all unfolds. Be sure to stop by WWelcome to Eden Season 2, landing on Netflix on 04/21
