Whose Wedding is it at the End of Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 2? We discuss one of the central mysteries in the popular Netflix series.

Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 2 conjured a lot of mysteries, despite the inevitable tragedies occurring. One mystery is a wedding taking place in 2016. One of the future scenes shows Johnny waiting nervously for the bride.

The series then implies that Tully is the bride because everyone is waiting for her, but this turns out to be a misdirect. Tully and Johnny did not end up together and are not getting married in 2016. 

The purpose of this Wedding in 2016 is to understand where the characters are and to confirm a tragic event that happened in 2006. 

So what was the purpose of the mysterious Wedding in Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 2?

Whose Wedding is it at the End of Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 2?

It is confirmed later in Part 2 that it was Marah’s Wedding in 2016. Kate and Johnny’s daughter is getting married. 

The reason why Tully is important is because she is the Godmother, and she’s had a particular influence on Marah’s life. She plays an important role in Marah’s Wedding, so that’s why they need to wait on her. 

The reason why Johnny looks so nervous at this Wedding is because his daughter is about to get married. 

Why is Kate not at the Wedding at the end of Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 2?

As confirmed at the end of Season 2, Kate died in 2006 after cancer had spread to the brain. Sadly, Kate never got to see her daughter get married. 

And this provides further context as to why Tully is a pivotal character at Marah’s Wedding. As Godmother, she likely took more responsibility for Marah’s life alongside her father, Johnny.

In a heart-wrenching scene, Tully talks to an imaginary Kate right before Marah is about to get married. They praise each other for raising Marah and for being brilliant mothers. Tully tells Kate that Marah has the best parts of her. This is the moment when it is confirmed that Kate is dead.

Who is Marah marrying in Firefly Lane?

It’s not exactly confirmed. However, before her mother dies, Marah did tell her about a date she went on and how this woman made her feel on the date. Kate is pleased to see her daughter so happy and explains she’s felt the same feelings before. 

We can only assume that Marah married the same woman in 2016 if we are to make that logical narrative leap.
