Yeah. Ekko is def one of my favs in League, and here he's just kinda a plot device.
DESU, I really hope Vi, Cait, and Ekko get far more focus in S2 now that Jinx's arc is essentially done.
Vi has to deal with the fact that Powder is gone and Jinx is what remains.
Cait has to come to terms that there are fundamental differences between P and Z and that peace isn't going to come easily nor be easily solvable.
Ekko will hopefully develop the Z Drive by the point and potentially have an arc like Nox from Wakfu.
We also have to deal with the fallout between Jayce and Viktor and the start of Viktor's Glorious Evolution.
