All Rise Season 2 delivers a major shocking revelation
The episode kicked off with a flashback, where Lola was suffering emotionally, and she went to her husband to share her pain. However, surprisingly, she revealed to Robin that she is soon going to be a ‘mother.’
Apart from this, Lola’s friendship with Mark also received a severe blow. The latter didn’t react positively to Lola’s scuffle with the police, and Lola didn’t take it lightly.
In a recent interview with TV Line, the showrunner, Harris-Lawrence revealed how season 2 is different than the first instalment.
