Anna and Maya’s worlds widen in season two, both predictably and heartbreakingly; any tween friendship as close as theirs must eventually be rounded out by other friends, extracurriculars, and crushes, but as I watched the Covid-Halloween Mask Costume Scary Pumpkin T-Shirt in other words I will buy this season’s events unfold, I longed for the two girls to stay in their safe little chrysalis of inside jokes, Jim Carrey impressions, Sylvanian Families games, and—this season—dabbling in witchcraft.
