Who does Tully marry in Firefly Lane? If you've finished the second season, you're probably wondering the same as us—are congratulations in order for one-half of our favorite bestie duo?

The first half of Firefly Lane season 2 landed on Netflix in December 2022 and saw us get reacquainted with Kate and Tully, who are both reeling from a devastating friendship breakup. After all the drama of the first season, we were left asking so many questions, including "Does Johnny die in Firefly Lane?" And, as if our emotions haven't been toyed with enough, it seems that there's every chance we're destined for heartbreak in Firefly Lane season 2 part 2...and perhaps, nuptials? 

It goes without saying, but there's a lot to unpack. Who does Tully marry in Firefly Lane—or does she even get married? We dive into the goings-on in the show below...

*Warning: spoilers ahead!*

Who does Tully marry in 'Firefly Lane' season 2?

At the end of the first half of season 2, it's not entirely clear who Tully (Katherine Heigl) marries in Firefly Lane—if anyone at all. But before we (potentially) walk down the aisle, let's take a step back.

In the second season, we finally learn what Tully did to Kate (played by Sarah Chalke)—and why the lifelong friends are no longer on speaking terms.

Tully was taking care of Kate and Johnny's daughter, Marah (Yael Yurman) while she was grounded. But instead of keeping Marah home, she allowed her to go out to meet a girl she has a crush on; at least, that's what Marah tells Tully. Instead, the teen and her crush sneak off to a frat party, where Marah is assaulted by an older college guy. 

Terrified, she calls Tully who, reminded of her own traumatic experiences as a teen, immediately goes to pick Marah up, despite having had a few glasses of wine earlier in the evening with Danny. Though it wasn't her fault, Tully and Marah end up in a pretty serious car wreck after a driver runs a red light and crashes into the side of them. The event blows up the friendship between former besties Kate and Tully, with Kate furious and unable to forgive her childhood friend for putting her daughter in such danger.

So imagine our shock, then, when halfway through season 2 part 2, we flash-forward 10 years from the show's present-day to a future wedding. We see future Johnny in a tuxedo waiting nervously by the altar, wondering where the bride is. Cut to upstairs, where Tully dressed in all-white is getting ready up in the bathroom. "Hold your horses, almost ready. It's not like you can start without me anyway," she says. Has Tully's friendship estrangement from Kate gotten so bad that she's stolen her man?!

No, Tully doesn't marry Johnny. In fact, Tully doesn't marry anyone in Firefly Lane season 2, though she does officially end up with her on-again, off-again love interest Danny "Sports Man" Diaz (Ignacio Serricchio) at the end of the show. The bride in that future wedding, in fact, was Kate and Johnny's daughter Marah (Yael Yurman), with Johnny waiting for the bride and her godmother Tully to finish up getting ready upstairs to begin the ceremony.

Who does Tully marry in 'Firefly Lane' season 1?

In the first season of Firefly Lane, Tully has a one-night stand with a young guy named Max, who she meets at a bar. Things take a turn for the serious, especially when the two find out they're expecting a little one. 

Unsure about whether or not she wants to become a mother, Tully struggles with her new reality, before seeking reassurance from Max, who tells her he is thrilled with the news, and wants to settle down with her.

Excited, Tully quickly embraces her unexpected chance at a family, and the two get married in a small, quiet ceremony in a park in Seattle, with Johnny officiating, and just Kate, and Kate's brother, Sean Mularkey, there. 

Unfortunately, though, Tully ends up miscarrying their baby, and things quickly unravel from there. The TV presenter begins to push Max away—and while she soon regrets this, Max decides that he doesn't want to be treated that way, and suggests that they jumped into things too soon. The relationship ends, and the pair file for an annulment of their marriage.
