Recap of Mask Girl Season 1:

*Spoiler Alert*

The story follows a very radical yet contemporary approach to how beauty standards tend to put down women and set them in a cast as to how they’re supposed to be if they want to be desirable. The main character here works in a normal office, trying to make a living, and is very insecure about herself. However, she is known as the Mask Girl Online, who makes a lot of money by uploading adult content, and the hearts convert to real money. She has many fans there, but in real life, she is lonely.

She’s very happy there until another colleague of hers who is on the same platform as a user figures out that it is her who is the Mask Girl because he has a crush on her virtual persona. He is an insecure man himself, wanting to fulfill his desires, and he probes a lot into the matter to find who the Mask Girl is. The revelation makes things sinister on both ends.

The uniqueness of the show is that it is divided into three different parts, where one part is concluding enough, but it leads to another where there is another story following up. After this, there is a murder that pushes the protagonist to change her face and get the dream face she always wanted through plastic surgery. It also brings in the story of other women who are involved in such practices and how men look at virtual women involved in adult content with derogatory slurs.

It also shows how she does not get a chance to bond with her daughter due to these reasons. She’s very protective of her, but towards the end of the show, she is murdered, and the show just ends there. The Revenge is being taken by her crush and colleague, who kills her.

This is where her daughter comes into the picture: she’s an aspiring young actor, and her mother is restrictive because of the way people perceive her because the field of acting is not very fulfilling. However, the daughter is keen on getting into the field and after the mother is murdered, though she’s grieving somewhere, she’s happy that she can now pursue her dream.

From here, the second season will start.

The show is extremely bold and questions practices in society. It sees two gendered narratives and their consequences through characters who are sometimes loved and many times hated for their actions. This grey zone makes them realistic and helps us realize their true potential. Despite being a fast-paced thriller, it does not miss out on the elements of emotions, parenting, and bonding. It explores concepts around self-love, confidence, and blackmailing through an unhinged lens. While we are unsure about Mask Girl coming back for a season 2, we are sure about the impact it has left on its audiences.

Where to watch Mask Girl Season 2?

The show can be viewed on Netflix. The first season has seven episodes divided into three parts and spread across the seven episodes, showing interconnected stories with watching time of over an hour each. The second season will have a similar format and the same streaming platform.
