'Emily in Paris' Season 2 recap — will Emily leave Savoir? What to know about Emily's job.

Bringing an American perspective to the European marketing firm, Emily's coworkers are not initially thrilled with her ideas and work style in Season 1. However, Emily proves that she's a team player in Season 2 and executes high-profile PR events for Savoir's luxury clients. Everything is great in Emily's professional life, right?

Emily's boss from Chicago, Madeline (Kate Walsh), arrives in Paris and starts to oversee the Gilbert Group's Parisian firm, and begins to clash with Sylvie (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu) and the rest of the team.

Emily is torn between her two bosses, who both have very different ideals when it comes to their work. While in Paris, Madeline ruins several business relationships between Savoir's long-standing clients.

Ultimately, Sylvie along with the rest of the Savoir team quit, which Madeline is happy about. She believes that both she and Emily can rebuild the marketing firm and hire new employees that they can mold into their eyes.

Sylvie offers Emily a job to join her new firm, which means her time in Paris would no longer be brief. Does she take the job offer? In the final moments of Season 2, Emily calls Sylvie with her decision ... and the screen fades to black.

Yes, sadly fans will have to wait to find out if Emily will remain with Savoir or join Sylvie and her former colleagues at the new company.

'Emily in Paris' Season 2 recap — who will Emily choose, Alfie or Gabriel?

More complicated than Emily's professional life is her personal one. In Season 1, Emily meets and connects with her neighbor Gabriel (Lucas Bravo) who she eventually ends up falling in love with. While a romantic rendezvous in Paris is encouraged, at least, by Sylvie, Emily's beau Gabriel just also happens to be dating her newfound Paris bestie Camille (Camille Razat). Yikes!

Gabriel and Camille eventually split at the end of Season 1, and Emily, who believes Gabriel is leaving Paris, ends up sleeping with her BFF's ex.

In Season 2, Gabriel decides not to leave Paris, and Camille confides in Emily that she hopes to get back together with him. Though Emily doesn't tell Camille that she slept with Gabriel, she eventually finds out.

While Emily continues to be entangled in a love triangle, she also begins dating her French class partner, Alfie (Lucien Laviscount). As they continue to grow closer throughout the season, Emily becomes torn between her feelings for him and Gabriel.

In the Season 2 finale, Alfie tells Emily that he was supposed to return to London, but decided to stay in Paris to see if their romance would work. If so, he hits Emily with the idea of a long-distance relationship.

While dishing to Mindy (Ashley Park) about her complicated love life, Emily has a revelation that she is in love with Gabriel, and decides to go tell him. When Emily runs off to profess her love, she runs into Camille who tells her that she and Gabriel are dating and are moving in together.

Oh, Emily...

Will Emily break up with Alfie? Will Gabriel and Emily finally be together? Does Emily leave Savoir and join Sylvie? We sure hope Season 3 answers these burning questions.
