What happened in Arcane Act 1?
Spoilers for Arcane Act 1 to follow.
Act 1 of Arcane focused entirely on Vi and Jinx (then known as Powder) as children. We saw them pull off a heist with their friends Mylo and Claggor that spiraled out of control. An explosion caused the high and mighty city of Piltover to start exerting more pressure on the dark underbelly of Zaun and kickstarted Viktor and Jayce’s partnership to create HexTech that combines magic and technology.
In a heart-wrenching Episode 3, we see Vi, Mylo, and Claggor attempt to save their adoptive father Vander from Silco, an evil scientist who holds a grudge against Vander. While they all almost escape, Powder, who followed against Vi’s wishes, sets off a bomb that kills Mylo and Claggor.
After escaping, Vander dies. Vi punches and runs away from Powder. While Vi notices her mistake and attempts to go back for Powder, she’s captured by Piltover enforcer Marcus. Meanwhile, Powder is comforted by Silco and has anger in her eyes, so she’s clearly on the path to becoming Jinx.
What will happen in Arcane Act 2?
In Act 2, there appears to be a time jump that will make Vi and Jinx look more like they do in League of Legends. The trailer teases a partnership between Champions Caitlyn and Vi to find Silco and Powder, who seems to have turned into Jinx. We’ll likely also see the results of Viktor and Jayce’s invention of HexTech, which will have changed the world in the years since Act 1.
Episode 4 alone is bound to be very exciting as we see how it deals with the fallout of Episode 3. Arcane’s first act boldly surpassed expectations and was met with critical acclaim, so hopefully, the show can keep that momentum going.
Arcane Act 2 will be released on November 13, 2021.
