We’re approaching the end, ladies and gentlemen, and this penultimate episode has lots in store. There are mock trials, absurdly handsome farmers, and missing children, among other things. Let’s break it down.

Maddie

Maddie has a pretty pressing issue in Sweet Magnolias episode 9 — Kyle is missing. We know why, obviously, since his crushingly embarrassing attempt to kiss Annie, but it’s still a major deal. And since Noreen has left Bill, he’s able to help out with the search, forcing them both into a tense partnership that Cal isn’t particularly thrilled to hear about.

Kyle is sheltering with Pastor June and Jesus. When Maddie gets there, she’s heartbroken to hear how Kyle feels; his assumption that nobody would notice or care that he was gone, and the closeness he shared with Noreen. Parenting: Just when you think your child’s all grown up and self-sufficient, you realize that they’re still kids. All’s well that ends well, though, since Annie still wants to play cards with him.

Dana Sue

Dana has her eyes on someone new in “Where You Find Me” — Jeremy, an “old man” whom she has to negotiate produce prices with. Turns out, though, that the old man assumption couldn’t have been more off-base. He’s the most handsome man in the entire United States, immediately snatching the title from Cal.

These two immediately bond and go on a bit of road trip. They get on well enough for a smooch. Perhaps Dana Sue swearing off men is more temporary than she thought.

Helen

Ryan is in town — but for how long? That’s a big question for Helen in Sweet Magnolias episode 9, but in the meantime, he’s handling the farmland issue, just in case you needed some flirty banter about sustainable crops with healthy biomass. Sexy, I know.

Anyway, the mock trial is underway, finally. Annie’s having to pull double-duty in Kyle’s absence, and CeCe has undergone a power-suit glow-up — Helen even gives her some earrings. And she wins the award for best defense attorney — weirdly moving to see how happy Russ was about this — even if she’s more focused on Ty’s relationship with Annie.

Annie kind of has it out with Helen about her preferential treatment of CeCe. “Sometimes if we treat people as if they’re good, it challenges them to be good.” It’s as good a rationalization as any.
