The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 Finale Ending Explained
At the conclusion of this season, we see how Belly ponders her feelings in that love triangle she has going on with Conrad and Jeremiah. While Conrad was the first dude she set her eyes on, as the show moves on, Belly finds out that Jeremiah has proven her genuine care, affection and shown feelings towards her.
Conrad’s feelings for Belly become challenged when she starts dating Jeremiah. Moreover, Conrad has a really hard time controlling his jealous temper, but in an impressive character story arc development he acknowledges that being jealous is bad for everyone, takes a step back, and lets Belly and Jeremiah on their own.
Conrad was always the kind of dude that felt that if he had a lot on his mind, it was an unbearable weight to bear. Jeremiah was the kind of dude that kept cool, saw an opportunity, and took it, and while Belly might’ve been the rebound girl here, that’s just the dressing on the salad of emotions, feelings, and conflicts that we see across the season.
All three of them had a romantic chance, and in the end, Belly, chose her heart and that’s the happy thing about it.
The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 Finale Review
The conclusion of season 2 of The Summer I Turned Pretty ends up with Belly and Jeremiah in a relationship. The season goes deep into feelings, how people deal with emotions, impulsiveness, and jealousy. Now, bear in mind that if you look at the series from a superficial perspective, Conrad and Jeremiah were indirectly battling over a rebound girl, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg, because deep down, it’s about finding your feelings and relating to them.
The scriptwriters and actors go deep into underscoring how each character’s complexities mold them. Teenagers, from a brain psychology development, are complex because they’re not children, but they’re not yet adults, and the experiences they have in that crucial stage of their lives will mold them forever into young adulthood.
And in the sophomore season of The Summer I Turned Pretty we see a good deal of that. With such emotional weight and strong narratives, the series is worth your time if you like to see romantic stories that end up with a positive vibe.
