Outer Banks: A Refresher on Where the Pogues and Kooks End Up in Season 1
Outer Banks season two premieres on July 30, and it has us thinking back on the first season that made us fall in love with the show. After getting acquainted with the Pogues — John B, Kiara, Pope, and JJ — in the first episode, the group eventually go on a fun and somewhat dramatic adventure to find a mysterious treasure. While they do eventually find the hidden gold, it ends up slipping right through their fingers when Sarah Cameron's father, Ward Cameron, who has been hunting for the treasure for years, steals it for himself and ships it off to the Bahamas on a private plane.
In a heated confrontation between John B, Sarah Cameron, Ward, and Sheriff Peterkin at the tarmac, the latter ends up getting fatally shot by Ward's son Rafe. In an effort to cover up his own crimes and protect his son, Ward frames John B for the sheriff's murder, leading to a wild season one finale. As the Pogues try to get John B and Sarah Cameron out of town, they are faced with a number of setbacks, including a huge storm. Ahead of the season two premiere, here's a quick recap of what all goes down.

As John B and Sarah Cameron try to outrun the cops in the water, they decide the best way is to go right through the storm.

The Pogues learn the news from the police and mourn the loss of both John B and Sarah Cameron.
What Happens to John B and Sarah Cameron in the Outer Banks Season 1 Finale?
In the final scene of the finale, we learn that John B and Sarah Cameron are actually alive and well. They are spotted in the middle of the ocean before getting miraculously saved by a nearby boat. As they make their way on board, they learn that the boat is actually heading to Nassau in the Bahamas, aka the exact place where Ward shipped the gold. Clearly, the hunt for treasure isn't over yet!
What Happens to Rafe in the Outer Banks Season 1 Finale?
Though Rafe never gets arrested for murdering Sheriff Peterkin, he doesn't exactly get away with it, either. During a heated conversation with the Pogues, Rafe's drug dealer Barry overhears the truth. When they part ways, Barry lets Rafe know he "owns" him now, hinting that Rafe will get in even deeper with Barry's drug dealing in season two.
