Firefly Lane’s season one finale saw the lead characters, Tully and Kate, not being on speaking terms, leaving audience members to question what happened between them.
Firefly Lane premiered worldwide on Netflix on Thursday, 3 February 2021, and stars Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke as Tully and Kate, respectively. The story centres around the two women, who meet as young girls on Firefly Lane and become inseparable throughout 30 years of ups and downs.
Season one delves into the background of each character and the moments that led to them becoming best friends. Despite overcoming many challenges, such as Kate’s ex-husband sleeping with Tully before they were married and Tully’s interference in Kate’s parenting, they manage to remain close friends and often refer to one another as sisters.
In the season finale, Firefly Lane skips to the year 2005, where the friends attend Kate’s father’s funeral. At this point, audience members learn that Kate and Tully stopped talking at some point between 2003 and 2005, resulting in Kate asking Tully to leave and claiming that she never wants to see her again. This moment leaves viewers guessing and speculating about what will happen in season two. Kristin Hannah’s novel also does not reveal much about what happened between the two, allowing series creator, Maggie Friedman, to have creative freedom with the upcoming storyline.
