The Problem and Solution to Writing Book 2 of a Trilogy

I’ve been completely focused on the new characters in my book 2 that i’ve ignored the plot of 2 and the end to my book 1. Upside: interesting characters Downfall: non existent plot.
I’ve found it useful to deepen the characters histories and have something from their past come back at them while they’re trying to move forward. It increases everyone’s knowledge of them while they grow past their past. Pointer#5?
