It’s been nearly two years since we’ve been able to keep up romantic activities and relationship statuses of the many handsome residents of Serenity, South Carolina, but within days Netflix’s hit drama, sweet magnoliaswill finally return for Season 2. Obviously, there are a few major questions we still have about that wild Season 1 finale, but there’s new information about teenage residents Ty and Annie that has me worried now.
What’s going on with Annie and Ty in Season 2 of Sweet Magnolias?
In case you don’t quite remember, Ty Townsend and Annie Sullivan are the son and daughter of Sweet Magnolia’s best friends, Maddie and Dana Sue, respectively. Ty and Annie spent a lot of time in Season 1 staring longingly at each other and even briefly kissing, but a new report from TV line suggests they may still not be ready for a full romance in season 2. Apparently their budding relationship will be “complicated” in future episodes, with each having “exciting journeys ahead of them” that might not be what what viewers expected. see.
Well….Dangit! The report also notes that this will be partly explained by the surprising fallout of that fucking post-prom car accident that ended season 1 causing anxiety and producing cliffhangers because it would impact the whole town (which was noted when the Season 2 premiere date and synopsis have been revealed) and does not leave any type of relationship as it was before. But what exactly could this mean for Annie and Ty? Couldn’t they actually become a couple in season 2?
What could stop Annie and Ty from getting romantic in Sweet Magnolias Season 2?
As you’ll probably remember by now (since your memory has refreshed), these two crazy teenagers grew up together and were friends their whole lives. But, Annie now has a fierce crush on Ty, who likes her… but also has feelings for another girl (hello, Cece), and (on top of that) doesn’t want to potentially ruin his friendship with Annie. Sure, Annie planted that kiss on Ty after getting drunk at a mid-season party, and he helped her get home, but it looks like the results of the accident will put another great barrier between them.
We know that Ty’s little brother, Kyle, was driving the car and was indeed injured, but we don’t know who his passenger was. Current possibilities are Ty, Annie, or Kyle’s friend Nellie (all of whom ran after him when he walked to the car), and if Kyle’s anger that led him to leave hurt Annie, this could surely put a dent in Dana Sue and Maddie’s friendship, which could in turn cause the teens to stay away from each other.
And, let’s not forget that in addition to the fact that Ty went to prom with Cece (knowing that Annie had feelings for him), young Kyle has his own serious crush on Annie, which Ty knows nothing about yet. If the accident leads to this being revealed, the older brother might just back off completely so as not to hurt his younger brother who already feels rejected.
Basically, Annie and Ty got a head start on all the romantic dramas their parents got into with a number of suitable and unsuitable love interests. This means the duo officially dating by the end of sweet magnolias Season 2 just might not be in the cards. Again… Dangit!
