'Avocado Toast The Series' Ending Explained: Could Molly reconcile with The One? Who is the father of Elle's baby?
Spoilers for 'Avocado Toast The Series' season finale
Elle (Perrie Voss) and Molly's (Heidi Lynch) trip to the cottage up north doesn't go as per their expectations. While for most of their time there the two reconnected, they had underlying tensions that finally erupted after Elle's sneaky attempts at handling her mother's relationship and this perhaps brings the worst out in them.
In a fit of anger, Elle takes the car keys and leaves the cottage with Molly rushing close behind her. But as Elle rushes off, Molly is left behind locked out in the freezing cold.
She decides to walk it off and is picked up by Roger (Andrew Moodie) who had actually gone out fishing. They have a heartfelt conversation about the recent past — from Molly coming out to her parents and finding out about them being swingers to Roger's separation from his wife — all things ailing them.
Elsewhere, Elle is preparing for a meeting with Patricia (Brenda Robins), which goes down in no time after her mother reveals that she knows how Elle tried to sabotage her relationship with Hunter (Scott Cavalheiro).
At this point, exasperated by her mother, she breaks the news that she is splitting from her agency and will start her own venture. She even hires Patricia's assistant from right under her nose for double the salary and storms off the office like a boss.
Her first stop is Rosie's where she finds out that Molly is on her way to London!
Let's back up a bit. After Roger drops her back home the previous night, Molly is greeted by her mother Meredith (Mag Ruffman) and father Francis (Jefferson Mappin) dancing with Patricia and Hunter. Molly breaks into a rant about her parents' lifestyle even going to the extent of shaming them for just dancing around and having a good time.
She leaves the house in a mess with her father's phone and his car. At first, we think she is going to Elle's to reconcile with her best friend. But soon it is revealed that is she is on her way to the airport to go to England and try and seek forgiveness from "The One" (Faye Marsay), who she had suddenly broken up with.
When she gets to London, she tries to make amends in a classic British way — writing a sincere apology in a 'Love Actually' fashion. Her ex stops her, clearly caught off guard with her sudden appearance and asks for a minute to gather her thoughts as Molly continues to plead with her. That's when a man from the inside beckons her to 'come back to bed'.
When Molly hears this, she simply storms off and is later shown crying under a streetlight with her phone in her hand — contemplating who to call.
Back in the bar, Elle comments on how her breasts are feeling sore. That's when Rosie asks her if she is pregnant. Suddenly overcome with the realization — as are we because Elle has thrown up in the past — she goes to the toilet.
She had spent the previous night with Jake (Kristian Bruun), and while the makers didn't exactly show us what they did after the pizza arrived, he is shown in the background when Rosie asks her the question. Could it be him?
If not him, then it is the client she had sex with at the beginning of the season. Either way, Elle is pregnant and it is confirmed. The final scene showed her crouching over a toilet, throwing up. She then picks her phone up, but who will she call?
Will the show get a Season 2? It is highly possible. With the story hanging in the midst of so many possibilities going forward, it seems unlikely that this is the only intended season. Creators Heidi Lynch and Perrie Voss have now put on hold the friendship of the two characters they play on-screen and the future for them only seems exciting and messy, but one they cannot deal with without the other by their side.
'Avocado Toast The Series' Season 1 is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
