Emily in Paris explores many details of Emily’s life in season two. From her friendships with Mindy and Camille to her work life alongside Emily’s boss, Sylvie, and of course, her troubled romances with Gabriel and Alfie. But, when the season 2 finale, “French Revolution,” comes to an end, Emily has some critical decisions to make.

Although it may be a stretch to say that Emily is thriving in Paris, season 2 shows her making strides and becoming more comfortable in her relationships and surroundings. So, unsurprisingly, something needs to come along to mess it up. The plot twist happens to be Emily’s American boss, Madeline Wheeler.

Emily sees a glimpse of her two worlds colliding when Madeline arrives in Paris. This gives Emily the chance to watch Madeline and Sylvie interact as Emily tries to keep things from spiraling too much out of control. However, things only become a problem for Emily when Sylvie and her other French co-workers leave their jobs.

Madeline is more than okay with the change in personnel, already looking forward to employing several younger individuals to mold into precisely what Madeline hopes for the company. But, Emily is uncertain about her place in this, as, with no one else around, Emily has practically been demoted until further notice, and she will be forced to wait to finally receive her promotion in Chicago. That is until she gets a second job offer.

Sylvie, as it turns out, is not done with Emily yet. Understanding Emily’s skills and potential, Sylvie offers Emily a job at the new marketing firm she is starting, and all of their clients plan to follow. With this position, Emily would also get to stay in Paris indefinitely, a significant change from her initial plan to go back to Chicago when the year was up.

It is not a surprise that Emily in Paris avoids revealing which direction Emily chose to go. Leaving it open-ended becomes an exciting element to question for a possible season 3. But, Emily also has romantic struggles at the end of “French Revolution.”

Season 2 continues the love triangle between Emily, Gabriel, and Camille. But, the series tries to keep it interesting with Alfie, a new addition to the series.

Emily struggles with her feelings for Gabriel throughout the second season and how they have negatively impacted Emily’s friendship with Camille. Emily in Paris tries to lift the stakes of the love triangle by having Emily admit to being in love with Gabriel while he and Camille are moving in together.

A love triangle is a trope that could either soar or fall flat, and it is uncertain how much time Emily in Paris can get out of this one. However, when adding Alfie into the mix, there may be a chance to make it a bit more interesting, if only for another season.

Between work drama and romantic struggles, Emily in Paris has a lot to answer for if it were to return for a third season.
