'Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist' Season 2 Episode 2: Will Max and Zoey ever have sex? Forces keep them apart
Zoey handled the situation well and assured him that all new managers go through a tough time, he should just be sure not to repeat his mistake again
The first episode of 'Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist' ended with big revelations as Zoey kissed Max and declared her love once and for all. Episode 2 began with the duo making out, which would have led to something more, had Zoey’s mom Maggie not have barged in with two massive bowls of popcorn for movie night.
Soon realizing her bad timing, she excused herself and handed Max one of the bowls of popcorn saying, “have some popcorn in case you work up an appetite,” making things very awkward for Zoey and her new beau. Zoey is still living at her mother's place along with David and Emily and their baby Milo. Emily’s sister Jenna was supposed to come over to help the new parents with their baby. Instead of feeling happy about it, Emily was very stressed about her erratic sister. When she finally came over, Zoey heard Emily singing ‘That girl is poison’ and she immediately warned Maggie to keep an eye on them.
Meanwhile, Max and Mo started planning about their business launch at full throttle until Max asked her to sign a contract with him which gave them fifty-fifty partnership. It seemed as if Mo somehow wanted to avoid the situation and fled. Zoey is welcomed by a floor full of unruly colleagues at work who were playing games and being loud. Leif told her it was good for them to blow off some steam. Something was not right about the situation and trouble was just around the corner when they faced some backlash regarding a ‘smart watch’ malfunction. Later she had a vision of her colleagues singing, “We did a bad bad thing.” When she enquired Leif about it, who was initially hesitant to reveal anything to Zoey at first, admitted that he overstepped his own limits and tried to do all the work by himself which led to data error.
Zoey handled the situation well and assured him that all new managers go through a tough time, he should just be sure not to repeat his mistake again. To bring more diversity at work, Zoey decided it would be a good idea to bring some female coders from the fifth floor and send some of the male coders on their floor to the fifth floor. This would ensure the highschool games and pranks that her male colleagues got so comfortable with would stop immediately.
Back home, Zoey and Max’s second attempt at spending romantic time together which would lead to them having sex was hindered again (this time at Zoey’s place) when Mo started playing loud Opera music. Zoey was well aware that Mo listened to Opera when she was sad. When she asked him Mo said he was totally fine, but just as she was leaving she heard him singing, 'Too Good at Goodbyes’. Zoey informed Max, him asking Mo to sign a contract must have brought back some sad memories that made Mo sad.
After repeated attempts, Mo finally agreed to talk to Max and revealed she once launched a Jeans business with a friend but right before the launch she ditched his friend, changed all the designs of the denim and got him out of the contract. Eventually, the business didn’t go anywhere and Mo was left not being able to trust herself again with situations like that. After doing some ‘bonding exercises’ as suggested by Zoey, Mo and Max connected emotionally and Mo decided to help him out when he said he wanted his father to be proud of him.
Max and Zoey made a third attempt to consummate their relationship and they were back at Maggie’s place since Maggie and family made plans to be elsewhere. However, just when Zoey thought all her problems were over, she saw Max was acting funny. After some consoling and talking, the couple could finally have an emotional connection and for the first time we see Zoey singing back to Max.
