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 at the end of 2022, and saw us get reacquainted with Kate and Tully, who are suffering from an unimaginable falling out. After all the drama of season 1, 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: Firefly Lane season 1 and 2 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 season 2, we finally learn what Tully did to Kate (Sarah Chalke)—and why the pair 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 allows her to go out to meet a girl she has a crush on; at least, that's what she 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—and Tully, reminded of her own traumatic experiences, immediately goes to pick her up, despite having had a few drinks. 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. 

And while we're all still wondering if Kate ever forgives Tully in Firefly Lane, the show just happened to thrown a future wedding into the mix at the end of the first half of the series!

A one-minute teaser at the end of season 2 part 1 has left fans totally confused. It shows Johnny dressed up for a wedding...before panning to Tully in the bathroom getting made up. While someone knocks at the door, she says, "Hold your horses, almost ready. It's not like you can start without me anyway."

WHAT?! Is Netflix trying to suggest that Tully and Johnny become an item?! The pair do have some history, but Johnny and Tully's best friend Kate have been an items for decades (despite some ups and downs).

The teaser is, of course, deliberately coy, and at the moment, we're not yet sure if Tully and Johnny get married, or if perhaps she's marrying someone else, and Johnny is her 'best man' or sorts. Perhaps Tully isn't getting married at all, and her all-white outfit in the teaser is meant to throw us off?

Many viewers have suspicions that, like the Firefly Lane books, written by Kristin Hannah, Kate dies at the end of the season from a bout with cancer. But could Tully really marry her best friend's husband?

According to Netflix Life (opens in new tab), some believe that Johnny and Tully are preparing for Marah's wedding—perhaps, sadly, without her mother there. 

None of us quite know what's happening yet, and we're going to have to wait until Firefly Lane season 2 part 2 premieres on Netflix later this year to find out. The next batch of episodes will in fact be the final outing for the show, with the streaming service revealing that sadly, there will not be a Firefly Lane season 3. Sob! 

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 to their marriage. 

Catch Firefly Lane season 1 and season 2 part 1 on Netflix now. And you can enjoy our favorite shows like Firefly Lane before the rest of season 2 premieres in 2023.
