Depart a Remark
Warning! Main spoilers forward for Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Season 1 finale, known as “Zoey’s Extraordinary Dad.”
Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Season 1 ended on a somber word. Zoey spent loads of time contending with the truth that she may lose her dad Mitch — who was recognized with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) — and the season finale discovered her and her household lastly having to say goodbye for good. Nonetheless, there have been some vibrant spots within the episode. Zoey, who’s been caught in the course of a love triangle between finest pal Max and colleague Simon, lastly kissed Max, altering their relationship for good. However, Simon was nonetheless very a lot within the image, too and showrunner Austin Winsberg revealed precisely why Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist left the love triangle open-ended.
The basis for the love triangle on Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist was laid out somewhat nicely over Season 1. Zoey clearly had emotions for Simon, however they determined afterward that neither of them had been in an excellent emotional place to pursue a relationship. Then there was Max, who beloved Zoey, however wasn’t so clear on her emotions for him. Zoey made a somewhat direct choice when she lastly kissed him within the Season 1 finale. The difficult half was that the kiss didn’t resolve the love triangle a lot because it difficult issues even additional for Zoey, who nonetheless favored Simon as nicely.
Austin Winsberg not too long ago defined why the love triangle plot was left unresolved and the way it will issue into a possible Season 2. Right here’s what he advised TVLine:
I undoubtedly needed to maintain it open-ended going into Season 2, and I didn’t need it to be definitive that she had made a selection for one or the opposite. I nonetheless needed to placed on the desk that these are each good guys, who’re each viable in their very own manner. The proven fact that she’s seeing Max in a extra romantic gentle, but in addition with Simon coming again in Episode 12 and he’s truly beginning his personal private progress and dealing on himself, it’s going to proceed to create completely different choices and challenges for Season 2. I didn’t wish to go utterly Crew Max or Crew Simon by the tip. However there’s nonetheless, hopefully, some questions on what’s going to occur, and definitely with the loss of life of her father, that’s additionally going to impression the place she is at, emotionally, and what she’s going to be prepared for main as much as Season 2.
Personally, it’s a bit traumatic to know that the love triangle may nonetheless go both manner, since Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist hasn’t but been renewed for Season 2. That stated, the Season 1 finale was so nicely performed that, if there’s an opportunity the musical sequence gained’t return, it will have led to a satisfying manner. Nonetheless, Zoey’s nonetheless bought a protracted technique to go and loads of feelings to type by about Max, Simon, and grieving her father’s loss of life. I hope the present scores a Season 2 so viewers can get the satisfaction of seeing whom Zoey finally chooses and the place Austin Winsberg and his writing crew proceed with the story.
