WHERE WE LEFT OFF: Do you need a refresher on how Season 2 ended? We have the details for you right here.

In the Season 2 finale called “Freefall” (Trace’s song that relaunched his career), Trace and Abby worry about how their future together will work out if Trace leaves for a worldwide tour. Trace and his band members call their old label head, Mark Hall, to talk about working out a new deal. He offers a six-month arena tour. Trace tries to convince Leigh that they’re not ready, but she’s not buying it. Mark later confronts Trace and tells him that he can’t have everything, and success comes with a price.

Abby talked to Douglas, a father of a student at her kids’ school, about his becoming a partner with Mick on the O’Brien Trust Project. There are sparks between the two, but it’s mostly on Mick’s side because Abby is really focused on Trace.

Trace ultimately decides not to go on tour. He doesn’t want to leave Abby. But Abby’s family tells her this is a bad idea, because he would be giving up everything. Abby wants to give Trace a chance at his dreams, just like she took when she went to New York. Trace doesn’t understand this and says he wants to spend his life with her. Abby tells him that if they’re meant to be, their relationship won’t be over.

Meanwhile, David told Jess that he has to leave the inn because his family needs him, but he doesn’t want to break up. David later reveals that his dad is Dennis Lyle Peck, who is now sick and needs help running a huge family business. He leaves at the end of the episode while Trace is performing.

During the episode, Bree learns that she can’t keep up with the publisher’s demands, and she’s mad at Simon for submitting her manuscript without her permission. She tells him to go back to England, so he leaves.

Things are going better for Kevin and Sarah, meanwhile. He realizes he can’t just be friends with her, and they kiss. Then he learns that he’s accepted into medical school at Stanford, but instead he’s about to start paramedic training.

Nell ponders a lost love from her past, the mysterious Dylan O’Malley. She said her biggest regret is never telling him how she felt.

So the season ended with the three O’Brien sisters about to be without the important men in their lives, and uncertainty about what will happen next.
