Emily in Paris season 2, episode 10 recap – the finale and ending explained

Episode 10 opens up with Madeline speaking to Emily about the company’s accounts — she thinks the bookkeeping is a nightmare. She warns they may be changes unless there’s a tighter ship. In a marketing meeting, Madeline has her own ideas. And then Julien walks in and reveals that Dupree’s fashion show in Versaille was a disaster. Emily and her staff are happy knowing that he’s the enemy of Pierre. Madeline believes they have missed the point; a major designer needs a new marketing team. She thinks they should snap up Dupree as a client. Sylvie reminds her that signing Dupree would conflict with their best client. It gets awkward, but surprisingly, Sylvie agrees. She’s clearly up to something.

Emily heads to a nightclub to attempt to sign Gregory Dupree. After much convincing, the firm is hired. And then, Sylvie claims to Madeline that Pierre agrees to end the petty feud.

At a restaurant where Mindy will be singing for the audience with the band, Alfie brings up to Gabriel about what he heard about him and Emily. He doesn’t want to get “in the middle of anything.” Gabriel tells Alfie that Emily is amazing, but he wasn’t honest with her, and now they are friends. He states he’s glad Emily is with a good man. This is the first sign that Gabriel has given up on being with Emily.

Mindy sings, and she’s irked that no one is paying attention due to the murmurs of the restaurant. However, she overcomes the distractions and enjoys singing with her band. Eventually, the people in the restaurant start to listen, and she has the crowd hooked. Eventually, the audience claps with the melodies as Mindy nails it. Mindy ends the song by looking lovingly into Benoit’s eyes and kisses him. Meanwhile, Sylvie meets up with Laurent G, and he’s wiring her money to settle a business deal. She thanks him for coming so quickly to help her out.

And then, the fashion event organized for Gregory Dupree arrives. Dupree invites Pierre to the stage, highlighting how he’s a mentor for him. Pierre makes a grand scene on his arrival. The event is a success, but Emily notices Sylvie and other staff members walking out. After the show ends, Pierre reveals to Madeline and Emily that he is firing the marketing firm. He no longer thinks the firm connects with their needs and values. Madeline tries to save the situation by speaking French, but Pierre makes it clear that she’ll never understand him.

A furious Madeline confronts Sylvie about what happened. Sylvie tells Madeline that she can only blame herself. Madeline tells Sylvie that she is scheduling her for a review, by Sylvie lands a twist; she resigns. Madeline laughs, believing it makes her job more manageable. But then Sylvie reveals the firm is coming with her, and she shows her a portfolio. Everyone else has quit; it’s a “French Revolution.” Emily is dismayed that no one told her about these plans.

Emily confides with Alfie that she’s been abandoned. Her future is suddenly uncertain. Alfie calls it s**t-timing, and he tells her he was meant to go back to London a week ago — he stayed for her. He wants to see if they can be something. Emily meets Madeline in the office — she’s worried about the experience they have lost. Madeline asks for administrative help until they are back up and running. Sylvie then messages her asking if she’s free for lunch.

The ending

So Emily meets Sylvie, and her ex-colleagues are all there. Sylvie reveals that her husband bought her shares for the club, and they are using it to start the firm. They’ve got several clients already on board. Dupree will only be on board if Emily is part of it. Sylvie admits Emily is good at her job and that she’ll have to stay in Paris longer than she planned. Emily is delighted that Sylvie wants her on her team.

When Emily speaks to Mindy, she’s indecisive but accidentally slips that she’s in love with Gabriel. But she recognizes it’s easy with Alfie. Mindy believes Emily needs to tell Gabriel how she feels before regretting it. Paris is her life now.

So Emily heads to Gabriel’s apartment. At the door, she tells him she’s staying in Paris indefinitely. She admits her life is here, and he’s a big part of it. But that’s when she sees Camille in his apartment. Gabriel has asked Camille to move in. Camille broke the pact. Emily is heartbroken, and she walks away in shock. Will they ever be an item? Will love prevail? Well, we will not find out in season 2. All we do know is that Camille played a blinder — she broke the pact before Emily did.

As the finale ends, Emily rings Sylvie and says, “I’ve made my decision.” But what’s the decision? Argh, so many questions unanswered.

The finale of season 2 does not waste time and leaves the audience with thirsty cliffhangers.

    It’s called Emily in Paris, so she may leave but return shortly. So that’s not that big of a cliffhanger. I watch mostly for the city. I appreciate the views and the walking down streets. Yes, the clothes are fun. But! what I really like is the story of the other characters. MINDY especially. She could have her own show. She has more chemistry with her partner, and is more engaging. I like her backstory and how far it could go. Sylvie, is an enigma. Polished, yet vulnerable. I would like to see a relationship between two male characters. I see friendship, but there’s room for a romantic relationship in here.
