Season 2 did not end on a good note. Ola parted with Otis and moved on with Lily. Otis left a voicemail on Maeve’s phone finally confessing his feelings.
“It’s you. It’s always been you. I love you.”
But Isaac who is also attracted to Maeve finds the mail and deletes it. Ughhh!
Maeve realizes that her mother has started doing drugs again and reports her to social services. She apologizes to her for doing so but it leaves them on bad terms. Viewers understand that she did it for the sake of her sister’s welfare. Eric chooses Adam over Rahim. Jackson starts taking care of his mental health by ditching the pool and his strict routine.
