Raising Dion Season 1 Summary
The series deals with all the trials and tribulations that will come from having a son with special abilities and it has a very unique aesthetic that, although heavily explored in Brightburn, is developed far beyond its cinematic counterpart.
Nicole’s main concern is that her son has been entrusted with a huge responsibility and that as much as his actions matter, let him do as much.

She has the ability to take on the world’s greatest hero or her greatest threat and this is something she struggles with, leading her on the right path while outside forces try to corrupt her.
Raising Dion Season 1 Ending Explained: What happens with the Boy?
Suffering from the same terminal illness that ravaged Iceland’s flora and fauna after the incident, Pat uses his stormy powers to absorb other super-powered individuals into himself, thus relieving his symptoms.
It wasn’t until he learned that Dion had healing powers that he saw a way out of his plight. His new mission: Get Dion to use her healing powers, even expending so much energy could result in the death of a child.
The Season 1 finale begins in simpler times, in 2010, with Pat and Mark Warren (Michael B. Jordan) experiencing an “Iceland event”.
With the radiation levels off the chart, we see Pat colliding with strange, almost ash-like projectiles. They scorch parts of her skin and, of course, give her strange powers.

We also see Atlanta in 2014 after the event. Apparently, Pat had a relationship with Kerry Phillips (Ariana Guerra). It turns out that he has also acquired superpowers from the event.
When she broke up with Pat, he tried to persuade her not to leave, which resulted in him setting her hand on fire. Title and consent, Ritter told TV Guide.
Eight-year-old Dion has been put through the ringer in the season one finale. When Pat (Jason Ritter) physically threatens his mother and tries to trick Dion into fixing her, the poor boy learns that his godfather is actually a crooked man.
The show shows us Pat taking care of Dion, with zero whispers about any hidden motive. It seems like the show could have been better presented by first revealing Pat’s duality, dedicating more episodes to Nicole and Dion figuring out how to beat him.
Instead, it seems that Rising Dion pulls off a Mad Daenerys twist, favoring shock value over a fully developed arc that could have seen Pat as a formidable villain for the second half of the season.
