We recapped every episode – access the archive.
Moe tells Miss Shaw that Chase didn’t do it but the teacher doesn’t want to listen. Brady tells Moe to keep her mouth shut and that it’s not his problem. The rumour about Chase has spread all around the school. Moe tells her friends that she has to come clean. In the changing rooms, Tabitha notices bruises on Kayla’s body and tries comforting her.
Jillian tells Elodie that she’s “come out” and her friends know. Elodie congratulates her and Jillian said she “kind of” did it for her, as she doesn’t want to hide anymore. Jillian says she feels free now and it’ an exciting moment in her life.
At the Anonymous Group, Elodie stands up and speaks. She’s tired of feeling ashamed and that she’s been stealing in secret — she doesn’t want to carry lies anymore. Elodie returns home and empties everything she has stolen and asks for her father’s help; she returns all the items she has stolen to the stores. The growth Elodie has shown in the second season is wonderful development for the character — “We Belong” shows she is aware of her actions more than ever before and how it impacts others.
Elodie tells her father that she’s truly grateful for him and he returns the same words. During the night, the three women agree to come clean about the test results. They don’t want Brady to get away with it either, which spurs a great second half of the ending of Season 2.
I will fix it
At school, Moe tells Noah that she doesn’t think she’s worthy of his love but that she’s going to try and fix it. She tells him that he is the best thing that has ever happened to her — she wants to go back to the moment when they met. Noah tells her that they can’t go back. Harsh words by Noah but you can tell he’s struggling with the breakup in “We Belong”.
Giving Jillian a paid for gift
Elodie gives Jillian a gift that she bought — it’s only a small gift. She asks for another chance and Jillian wonders if she can think about it. This leaves their story open for season 3 (if there is one).
I’m not scared
Brady tells Tabitha that he got into the college he wants but he didn’t get everything. Tabitha tells Brady that she isn’t scared of him anymore and she shows her grit and determination in “We Belong”.
A bigger story
The trio of friends heads out late at night. They head to the school and put their plans in place. The women feel free now they’ve come clean and then they head onto a road trip and go to a beach. At school, everyone is shocked at what they see. There are posters up of Brady but also photos of Tabitha with her bruises. The posters admit that the trio stole the test data but that it’s part of a bigger story — “We may be thieves but we are not liars”. The whole school is in shock.
Brady shows up and sees all the posters showing his texts and the abuse. Kayla tells him it is over. Noah tells Brady that he messed with the wrong girls. He’s left alone in his own deserved demise.
Elodie looks at the ocean for the first time — she was meant to go with her mother and she believes she would have liked her best friends. She throws some of her mother’s ashes with her eyes filling with tears but there’s also a hint of happiness there. The trio enjoy the beach. Trinkets season 2, episode 10 shows plenty of character growth but more importantly, it presents a core story where the female characters took the power back off their abuser. It’s a significant message and one that will resonate with many women around the world. Rather than let Brady control the narrative, they decided to write the ending.
