With SYFY set to wrap up the second season of Christopher Meloni–Patton Oswalt-starrer Happy! on Wednesday, all roads lead to Sonny Shine’s (Christopher Fitzgerald)… thing… that he has planned to “Make Easter Great Again.” As you will be able to see from our season-ending list of questions we need answered (below), that “road” is lined with a pretty high body count… and not every one of those bodies is human.
So with some serious high expectations set for “Resurrection,” series writer/director/executive producer Brian Taylor wants fans to know that the Happy! went “huge” for Wednesday night’s season-ender – showing love to the cast and crew. Patrick Fischler (Smoothie) returned the favor with a shout-out to Taylor as well as urding fans to watch the episode live:
even by @HappySYFY standards we went HUGE for tonight's season finale. so proud of this cast and the entire production team. #resurrection @Chris_Meloni @pattonoswalt @PFischler @kifferfitz @medinasenghore @lilimirojnick @RyanDenmarkTS

Now here’s hoping Happy! “Resurrection” answers at least half of the questions we have going in, including:
● Can Sonny Shine “Make Easter Great Again” – or will he literally die trying?
● Is Orcus (Ritchie Coster) really, fully in charge – or is Blue still in there somewhere?
● Is Smoothie looking to take down Sax (Meloni) and Amanda – or does his “bigger picture” Hailey (Bryce Lorenzo) plan have another agenda?
● So what’s the deal with the changes Happy’s (Oswalt) been going through?
● Is there any chance that Jeff Goldblum will be playing Jesus Christ, God, or the Easter Bunny?
● Will anyone pause for a moment and appreciate the fact that Sax at least tried to be a better person this season?
Before the season wraps, here’s a look at two previews for the season finale. In the first, Amanda and Happy find themselves trapped and taking a trip down memory lane – until a final scene that throws into question what we though we knew about Smoothie’s plans. In the second, Smoothie gives Sax a bit of an “orientation” before the “festivities” begin…
Happy! season 2, episode 1o Season Finale. Sonny’s Eggtacular = lit. Sax, Amanda, Happy save Hailey from a fate worse than death.
Season 2 begins with Easter on the horizon –a season of hideous pastels, dye-stained fingertips and a general “who really gives a f***” attitude. A newly sober-ish Sax finds himself struggling with the demands of family and fatherhood. He has sworn to do right by his ex-wife, Amanda, and his daughter, Hailey, which means no booze, sex, drugs or killing.
Happy, meanwhile, is resigned to keeping his partner on the straight and narrow while coping with the fact that a maturing Hailey can no longer see him. Sax’s fresh start will be tested by a familiar enemy: Sonny Shine, who is on a mission to Make Easter Great Again (MEGA) with the help of his demented Easter Bunny henchman.
Written and executive produced by Brian Taylor and comic book writer Grant Morrison, the SYFY series is based on Morrison and Darick Robertson‘s comic book series, starring Christopher Meloni, Patton Oswalt, Christopher Fitzgerald, Patrick Fischler, Lili Mirojnick, Bryce Lorenzo, Medina Senghore, and Ritchie Coster – with Curtis Armstrong, Paul “The Big Show” Wight, and Ann-Margret joining the cast this season. Both Lorenzo and Fitzgerald were promoted to series regulars with the second season.
