I just finished watching it and I have to say, this ranks 3rd on my most confusing endings list. To give some perspective, the first two in order are Lost and Mass Effect 3 (before extended cut band-aid). Prepare yourselves for this, I have trouble with names (especially Japanese names!) so I won't be using any.

What in the world happened? All I saw was Mr. eye patch carrying his buddy out of a burning building through an army of "doves" and then the purple haired lady opening up a coffee shop. It also seemed like his hair was going back and forth between white and black. What's going on there? And then the owl guy was carried away by his daughter after she directed an army of ghoul hunters to his coffee shop. And what happened to the dumbass who had his sword rearranged into a club? This ending was so full of obscurity I just... The hell with this, I'm done ranting. If somebody could explain what exactly happened, that'd be great.

I stopped watching around the time Kaneki was in a prison for "Reasons" fighting some random guy for "Reasons" and got a power up for "Reasons". Too much unexplained bullshit for me to handle.

They explained two of those things in the episodes that followed. He was in a prison because he joined those tree people in order to get stronger. It's probably safe to assume he was following orders then. He powered up because he had been eating other ghouls and that made him grow more tentacles and drove him kinda crazy. As to why he was fighting that guy he tried to break out of the prison, I guess it was self defence. The guy smelled Riza (I think that was her name), got super mad and attacked him.

I assume if they make a third season they'll explain what happened at the end of the second, but the way they ended it was just too confusing.
