The opening

Elodie is making her way home on the coach, reluctantly allowing another passenger to sit next to her as she consumes her music. Moe wakes up on the couch and her mother Vicky lectures her about solving her problems and not being consumed about being suspended from school for a few days. Episode 2, “Last Night of Freedom” is wildly different from the opening of Chapter 1 — there’s a dose of reality hitting our characters.

I sank my car

Tabitha bumps into Brady at school. He talks to her about sinking his car and that he wasn’t in his right mind. There’s an edge to him as he speaks about it. It’s almost as if he knows the truth. Tabitha looks spooked and she’s not coping well with it, even dismissing her best friend Kayla.

Maybe let’s not see the family just yet

Elodie returns home and sees her family through the window and is not ready to return. She decides to see Moe and Tabitha instead to hold off the family reunion. The three women are excited to be finally back together again. Elodie tells her friends that Sabine wanted her to be someone she’s not. She tells them she wants to give her family one more night without her. The three women agree that on Elodie’s last night of freedom they should go out and steal. Moe steals some vodka and the other two friends are surprised. This scene brought back the memories of Season 1, except it’s Moe who is wild, not the other two.

Nearly caught

To get her thrill, Elodie wants to steal some perfume; she takes her time to look at a range of different bottles and then steals one of them. On the way out, an alarm goes off because Moe and Tabitha have stolen a dress; Tabitha blags it and pays for the dress. Elodie is annoyed because they almost got caught but Moe is buzzing. Elodie thinks this is all happening because of their friendship. Moe promises she will never steal again to reassure Elodie. It seems Elodie fears trouble now and wants to make a turnaround for the usual antics.

Ben returns

The trio head to a bar. Luca is worried that Tabitha is going to get him fired as he works there and they are underage. As they return to Moe’s house she notices all the lights are on. The trio enters the house slowly. They find Moe’s brother Ben inside; he wanted to surprise Moe. Ben has made them all good food. Later in the night, all three women sleep in the living room. Elodie asks Tabitha if she thinks Moe is okay. Tabitha is not sure and Elodie believes she is a bad influence and needs to stop stealing.

The ending

In the middle of the night, Moe wakes up and joins Ben at the table. Ben feels better now he’s home and he opens a letter for Moe. Ben makes a joke and says that their father had a brain tumor and had to go into emergency surgery — he does a U-turn and says the letter is the same stupid sh*t. He asks Moe to burn the letter. The next morning, Elodie returns home with her two friends by her side for support. Trinkets season 2, episode 2, “Last Night of Freedom” brings an air of free will before Elodie undoubtedly embarks stricter rules. It reminds audiences why these characters are loved in the first place.
