'Who killed Luke Chambers?' still remains a mystery in season 2 of Cruel Summer because the true cause has yet to be revealed. However, there's a high chance he died by accidental drowning. Guess, we have to wait for the show's few more episodes to find it out.
The Cruel Summer season 2 premiere on Prime Video revealed that Luke Chambers, not Isabella LaRue, was the missing (and dead) person and that five persons may have committed the crime based on the previous two episodes. The second season of the Freeform anthology series Chatham exposed viewers to a fresh cast of characters that live in the small Pacific Northwest town. It takes place during three time periods: summer 1999, winter 1999, and summer 2000.
On July 16, 1999, Megan Landry was initially introduced to the public. Megan was disappointed when her mother, Debbie, agreed to host an exchange student called Isabella for a year. As a result, Megan and Isabella didn't get off to a good start, but by December 1999, the two were as close as thieves. As the episode progressed, viewers found that someone had gone missing in December, and while the show initially led everyone to believe it was Isabella, it was actually Megan's boyfriend, Luke Chambers, who had gone missing. After Cruel Summer season 2, episodes 1 and 2, the police discovered his dead body in July 2000. So, who killed Luke? Let's find it out together.
Previously, we touched on Paul Adelstein.

There is a lot to think about as we get ready for Cruel Summer season 2 episode 3, to say nothing of the remaining episodes of the season. That includes the current fundamental mystery at the heart of this story: Who was responsible for Luke Chambers's death? What the hell happened here?

Since there has already been a noticeable difference between what occurred in 1999 and what transpired in 2000, it appears that Megan and Isabella will make an effort to clarify their accounts. We know that a certain recording getting out upset both of their lives, but does that have any bearing on what happened to the guy? This is one of many mysteries that will be played out here throughout time.
While there are still many unanswered questions in this narrative, we're glad to have a few additional details to share here and there. With that, here's what executive producer Jessica Biel (@jessicabiel) had to say about accomplishing this curveball in the first place, according to TVLine:
It’s important with an anthology to keep some things that keep it feeling connected to Season 1, but we really wanted to try something different with Season 2. And that is a big deal, killing off one of our main characters in one of the timelines … We thought it would keep the audience on their toes. They’re not showing up and going to see the same thing, just with two different characters… There’s more mystery to it.
Of course, we believe that more clues will be introduced during the show's new season, and we also believe that one of the purposes here is to avoid making anything too obvious. Instead, you can weave so much mystery into what we're witnessing here and observe how things progress or degrade with some of the individuals surrounding Luke— all leading up to his terrible death, of course.

Aside from Luke Chambers's death, the Cruel Summer Season 2 debut episode teases a love triangle involving Luke, Megan, and Isabella. Later, Griffin Gluck (@griffingluck), who played the role of Luke, stated, "I think the love triangle itself starts off pretty innocently in my opinion. Luke and Megan have been best friends since birth. " He continued,
Luke takes an interest in this new girl in town [which] has a lot of really dire consequences, you know, like, in terms of their friendship, and in terms of Luke and Megan's relationship. There's, you know ... it's always two against one in any scenario, and secrets are kept from each other, loyalties are questioned.
Cruel Summer cast then added,
It's a lot of, I don't want to just use the word drama because it's too broad, but there's just a lot of drama in that very innocent starting love triangle. I would say it's a love triangle, kind of, but it's, it's more like Luke and Megan's relationship and how Isabella affects it in my mind.
