The tasks that people have completed come to fruition in surprising ways and The Man's business with Doris is not yet finished.
As the end of the tasks approaches, the customers find more resistance between them and their tasks than they were expecting.
Some of The Man's patrons encounter complications with their tasks while others begin to see evidence that their wishes are being fulfilled.
As The Man's customers report on progress with their tasks, he begins to show signs of change when Doris, the inquisitive waitress from the first diner, pays a visit to his new booth.
In the season 2 premiere, the Man sets up shop in another diner. Clients, new and some familiar ones, make deals with him. They choose to complete one task and report to The Man about their progress in exchange for one desire being fulfilled.
