However, Emily in Paris Season 2 ending in yet another cliffhanger has left the fans in a fix. Read on for more information on Emily in Paris Season 2 (Spoilers ahead).
The Plot of Emily in Paris Season 2
Emily in Paris Season 2 takes over right where Season 1 ended, where Emily cannot take her mind off Gabriel.
She confesses her predicament to Mindy, who is now her flatmate. Mindy advises her to carry on with her romantic weekend rendezvous, with Mathieu to St. Tropez as an alibi.
Emily gets on a train to St. Tropez with Mathieu, but he overhears the conversation over the phone between Emily and Gabriel even before the train starts.
Mathieu is shocked to learn that Emily was with Gabriel the previous night. He gets off the train and asks Emily to enjoy her weekend at St. Tropez, which she does with Camille and Mindy.
Gabriel, who was previously planning to shift to Normandy to open his restaurant, decides to stay back in Paris after Antoine offers to invest in his restaurant. At the same time, Camille is quite upset at Gabrielle, who is trying to avoid her.
At Emily’s birthday bash, Camille finds Gabriel’s omelette pan, which he never shared with anyone, in Emily’s kitchen, and discovers that the two of them are in a relationship. Furious at the two, she leaves the party in a huff, much to Emily horror, who cherishes this friendship a lot.
Desperate for Camille’s forgiveness, Emily even writes a sorry note to Camille in French, which is hilariously grammatically incorrect.
All these efforts fail to impress Camille, and she even has Emily removed from her account, the champagne brand by Pierre.
Meanwhile, Emily is desperate to improve her language skills in French as well. At her French classes, the students are encouraged to pair up and meet with their partners as much as they can, conversing in French all the time.
Emily pairs up with Alfie, played by Lucien Laviscount, a British banker who does not like being in France. He does not take learning French seriously, much to Emily’s annoyance.
However, later, Emily and Alfie enter into a serious relationship, and he also gets to meet her friends.
Elsewhere, Mindy is busy pushing her singing career. She joins a band on Beniot’s offer, and they, too, end up romantically linked.
Their struggling band performs on the streets, and when Benoit comes to know that Mindy comes from a wealthy Chinese family, he distances himself from her.
However, later in the series, they patch up and start singing together.
Sylvie starts dating a struggling young photographer, Eric, and tries to promote his work through Savoir.
Camille patches up with Emily and Gabriel on her parents’ insistence, and the trio vows to remain friends. Emily is also back in Camille’s marketing team.
