What to expect in Squid Game Season 2?

There are lots of unanswered questions. Biggest one is, how Gi-Hon will stop the games. After winning the game, Gi-Hon was on the road to recovery to forget all the horror he faced. On his way to the station, he witnessed the same games salesman who had recruited him, attempt to recruit a new potential games candidate.

He couldn’t confront the game recruiter, but he was able to take the card away from the new candidate. Frontman warns Gi-Hon and threatened him to board the plane quietly. Refusing to board his plane that would take him to see his daughter, Gi-Hon instead leaves, heavily insinuating that he is out for revenge against those responsible.

Gi-Hon has the money, and the motivation of revenge to get back at those responsible for the games. Technically, Gi-Hon is not the only survivor, as there have been previous winners of the games going back a few decades. If he can find any like-minded victims, together they may be able to pool their money and find a way to infiltrate where the games take place.
