The Great season 2 synopsis
The synopsis of the story for the second season that we got through Entertainment Tonight says:
Catherine finally takes the Russian throne for her own — but if she thought coup-ing her husband was difficult, it’s nothing compared to the realities of liberating a country that doesn’t want to be. She’ll battle her court, her team, even her own mother (played by guest star Gillian Anderson) in a bid to bring the Enlightenment to Russia. Meanwhile, she’ll also battle her heart as Peter slowly transitions from a much-hated husband to a prisoner? Ally? Lover? Ultimately, Catherine will learn that to change a country, you must let it change you, that there is a fine line between idealism and delusion, and that becoming ‘Great’ will ask more of her than she could have imagined.
After analysing this synopsis one thing we can say is that Catherine is going to have his hands completely full running the country. And it will become quite difficult for her to manage her relationship with her husband as well. Another pinpoint factor that can come as a new obstacle would be her pregnancy that will bring closer consternation.
The series will also show the visit of Catherine mom who will have to contend with the “maestro of marriage” and her meddling. Joanna’s matchmaking skills are completely unparalleled and has served the family ver well. All of the marriages that were under her matchmaking consciousness have been resulted quite advantageous. However, Catherine’s coup has completely surprised the family and now the reputation of the family is at stake. Now let’s see what drastic measures families will take in the second season if they don’t serve the Empress of Russia.
