Dollface season 2, episode 10 recap – the ending explained
Episode 10 opens up with Jules waiting for a call from her potential new dream job and she feels “professionally ghosted.” Her cat appears and brings in the imaginary secret service to give her “emotional protection.” The cat tells Jules to take risks and “go for things.”
Ruby asks Stella where they stand, but Stella wants to focus on the bar opening first and then figure out the romantic complications between them later. But then good news arrives; firstly, Madison tells Stella that she has a reporter to cover her bar opening, and secondly, Jules reveals her new career is making moves and that her romance with Fender is evolving. But then it hits Jules that she has to tell Celeste that she’s quitting.
So Jules has a meeting with Celeste, and she’s mad nervous. Celeste is understandable and happy about Jules’s new career move, which is surprising. However, later on, she learns that her new job is no longer available. She’s in limbo once again—another dull moment for the character. Jules runs to the office to “un-quit,” but Celeste isn’t there.
She tries to find Celeste at the airport, but her subconscious comes out and tells her not to move backward and “un-quit.” The overarching message is that Jules needs to find happiness and not security.
The bar opens, and it gets busy. Jules apologizes to Madison for things not working out. Jules admits it was a good move moving on career-wise. Fender shows up at the bar and surprises Jules. He reveals his band, and Ruby is happy that they are performing. Ruby and Stella finally have that talk. Stella admits she was torn before as she didn’t want to hurt her son Bruno. She wants to push herself to commit and not go anywhere. Ruby wants to protect her son — she wants the business, but not the relationship; she doesn’t want to be “a challenge to commit.” It’s an understandable position from Ruby — she wants someone to be sure about her.
Jules sets up a birthday surprise for Madison after the bar opening. She shows her the visuals she made for Greece in her garage. The women dance it out in the garage together to end season 2.
