DISCLAIMER - CONTAINS SPOILERS
As we know, Season 1 of 'Emily in Paris' ended on probably the most bizarre cliffhanger of all time; what with Gabriel deciding not to leave Paris and staying there for Emily, who in turn feels guilty for hooking up with him. That being said, Gabriel's current girlfriend, Camille, is also a good friend of Emily's.
Season 2 brings about fresh starts and perspectives to Savoir, the luxury marketing firm Emily works with. In 10 episodes, she has made herself comfortable enough to call Sylvie (her boss), Luc, and Julien some of her closest friends at work.
Although they might not admit it, what with being French and the lot, all three commend Emily for the brilliant brand marketing strategies she comes up with, but with complete subtlety.
When it comes to her personal life, Emily has made up her mind to move on from Gabriel, after Camille found out, interacting with him only to talk shop. Emily gets to know her classmate from French class, Alfie, a lot more than she'd like, and for someone who seemed pretty cocky at first, Alfie soon ends up being Emily's person!
Emily's best friend and roommate, Mindy, performs at a drag show, only to get the opportunity of a lifetime to join a band. In between singing and creating music, she finds love in Benoit, the lead guitarist.
All in all, we learn to love the work ethic, the fashion, the friendships, and the beautiful streets of Paris in just 10 episodes. C'est la vie!
Season 2 of 'Emily in Paris' is available to stream on Netflix.
