What happened to Aimee in 'Sweet Tooth' Season 2?

Jepp, Gus, Aimee, and the hybrid kids run onto a school bus and begin to leave the zoo and the horrors that took place within the concrete walls behind them — or so they thought. As Jep begins to drive away, Aimee lifts up her hand and looks down at her shaking pinky finger.

Sadly, this means that Aimee has contracted "the sick," the virus that has already wiped out 98 percent of the population.

Unsure how she contracted the virus, Aimee informs Jepp and Becky aka Bear of the news, telling them that the two of them are in charge of looking after all of the hybrid kids and making sure they are kept safe.

Finally, Aimee breaks the news to Wendy and the rest of her kids in an emotional moment. But, there are no time for tears as Aimee and the rest of the calvary must prepare to fight off General Abbott and the Last Men.

"Aimee is you know, we spent a lot of time talking about you know, how to kind of continue somewhat of the realities of the world, it can't all be great at the end, it can't be comfortable," the EP told us. "These characters are in a world where there's real stakes and consequences and, in so many ways, Aimee's journey ... and her objective was fulfilled."

"So it was a big design of Season 2 to have this, you know, fierce warrior ultimately fulfill her objective and then, unfortunately, is going to fall victim to the, the sick that has been kind of looming in the background," she continued.

At this time, it is unknown to the audience and our characters how someone contracts the sick and why some people are seemingly immune. Amanda told us that there is some "randomness" to the sick, but there is more story to tell and questions to answer when it comes to the virus.

"There's definitely mythology that our writers have fully mapped out," she said. "So I don't want to say that we that we've fully embraced randomness, there's going to be answers."

You can now stream Season 2 of Sweet Tooth on Netflix.
