Entertainment website The Things proposed: “Lana should not have known about John B’s compass but this theory argues that Scooter might have found Big John’s dead body and saw the compass before John B got it.
“He would then have told Lana about finding John B and the compass, explaining how she knew.”
Unfortunately, this theory still leaves viewers with a lot of dots to connect themselves, nor does it explain how Peterkin learned about the compass.
Now a second season is expected to drop at the end of 2021 or the start of 2022, it’s hoped Outer Banks will finally fill in some of the biggest gaps in Big John’s disappearance.
Outer Banks season 1 is available to stream on Netflix.
