It tells you that at least a portion of all the time you've invested in this character will likely return in season 2, rather than being curled up like a used rag and tossed away in favor of new characters. Without it, it looks like nothing you've done in season 1 will matter at all for season 2. Instead of "Almost everyone dies, the end" you get a hint at what might come in the next game.
