Under the cut, please find a HUGELY SPOILERY poll about John Wick: Chapter 2.
The marker that Winston gives John at the end of the movie is . . .
Gianna . . .
John's nameless dog does have a name, damn it! It's Good Dog.
Charon's prolly scary as fuck when he's not on the front desk at the Continental.
Winston is John's father.
I am someone who skips over the action scenes in books and doesn't particularly give a shit about such movies, but the Wickverse intrigues me. I find myself wanting to know about John's mother—no, there's nothing about her in this movie—was the car hers? Is Mama Wick why Winston *coughsI'mmakingthisupcoughs* won't fuck guests of the Continental anymore? And was Helen an innocent (with a bitchin' car?), or perhaps an assassin (with a bitchin' car?) who knew enough to get out?
All that said, while I did appreciate Chapter 2 (it spawned a hell of a lot more questions and headcanon than I've shared), the unrelenting violence did begin to feel, ever so briefly at points, dragging to me—but again, I usually tune out the violent bits, so the fact that I'm as intrigued as I am about the movie is a good sign that you will freakin' love it if you like action fare.
Here's something (potentially not WS for the violence) for those of you who haven't yet caught Wick 2 (spoilers for the first movie; AU):
