Emily In Paris Season 2 Review

The title character, played by Lily Collins, goes through a period of personal development in the City of Light during the meatier second season of the hit comedy series.

Story

The creation of Emily in Paris is like a delicately choreographed feast; the writers are tasked with simultaneously endearing her to the unironic enthusiasts and serving her on a silver platter to the hungry haters.

Emily had a one-night stand with Gabriel at the end of the previous season under the impression that he had ended things with Camille and was leaving Paris to start his own restaurant in Normandy.

The action finally picks up in the fourth episode of Season 2, when Emily is forced to face the consequences of her actions.

This season, her exasperated supervisor Sylvie (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu) finally becomes our hero’s Miranda Priestly, ascending into the spiky mentor role we were all patiently waiting for.

The alluring and steely Leroy-Beaulieu is reminiscent of Isabelle Huppert in her most smirky moments.
