Summertime Season 2 Ending Explained – Who does Summer choose?

Summertime Season 2 Plot Synopsis

The summer has arrived and our characters are back with more drama, romance and heartache just like before. This time, the story centers around Summer who has a big choice to make. At the start of the season Summer and Edo are happy together while Ale is off racing with new girlfriend Lola.

When Ale returns for the weekend, feelings between him and Summer spark again and complicate matters. This ultimately forms the crux of the drama here, with several other romances bubbling and simmering around this.

What happens to Edo?

Early on, Summer and Edo both apply to go to university together. They find out they’ve been accepted late on, following their break-up, which leads to some serious awkwardness. Eventually Summer decides against going. She breaks the news to Edo and they go their separate ways.

Edo decides there’s nothing left for him now and breaks the news to his parents that he’s going to Hamburg. There’s a lot of universities there and he feels he needs a fresh start. Just before going, he says his goodbyes to Giulia too.

Why is Sofia so annoyed with Summer?

Throughout the season, Summer and Sofia have been drifting apart. Summer has kept a lot of secrets from her best friend, including how she was sleeping with Ale early on and all the drama involving Edo.

During the finale, we finally find out why she’s so affected by this. It turns out Summer was Sofia’s first love and that’s why she’s been so hurt and hung up over her.

What happens with Dario? Does he end up with Rita in the end?

During episode 7, Rita doubted Dario’s conviction and dedication to being with her and looking after Davide. With everything looking highly unlikely, Dario packs up his things and prepares to head back to Rome with his family and friends.

Davide messages Dario though and claims it’s his birthday. It’s not, as it turns out, and it’s just an excuse to get some gifts and to see him. When Dario arrives, he speaks truthfully to Rita and tells her he loves her.

The pair decide to make a good go of it, with the final scene between them showing Dario getting stuck in to family life.

How does Summertime Season 2 end?

After her summer performance, Isabelle reveals that she’s pregnant to Anthony. When he finds out, the two sit thoughtfully on the sofa together. Will they keep the baby?

Sofia, after speaking her piece, meets back up with Irene. It’s only a flying visit but Irene encourages her to join her in Milan.

However, Ale’s final championship race is the big drama here. Everyone watches Ale racing, including Summer.

Jacobi Sandro has been a thorn in Ale’s side throughout the season and with the championship on the line, the pair race. Lola gets too close to Ale’s bike though and she crashes, collapsing on the race track.

Ale gives up his claim to fame, stopping his bike and rushing over to check on her. Sandro eventually wins the race while Lola’s life hangs in the balance. Ale is overcome with emotion and collapses, crying. As he does, Summer happens to be watching on TV and starts crying too.

Who does Summer choose in the end?

Well, it’s clear she has feelings for Ale and has done since way back in season 1. Season 2 essentially sees her flip-flop between Ale and Edo, before eventually throwing in Jonas as another curveball in this love triangle.

After sleeping with Jonas earlier on, she says her goodbyes to him at the bus-stop while Edo obviously looks set to head off to Hamburg. The final shot of her watching the race on TV indicates that she’s chosen Ale. But will his emotions be swayed by Lola’s life-threatening crash?

Is Lola dead?

Lola’s life is hanging in the balance and given the way she’s not moving, it would indicate she’s badly hurt, possibly even sporting a broken neck or spine. There’s a lot of shaky cam used around these scenes so it’s difficult to see for sure, but it would appear she’s still alive. In terms of a potential follow-up, this would definitely be the more likely scenario.

However, that is still open for interpretation. We’ll have to wait and see if Netflix green-light a third season before we get an answer.

  1. I hope Ale and summer get up together they have passion love and really true love ,this is unbreakable love ,and they deserve be together and should be thinking and move to Barcelona with Ale and move from parents ,and start new life with Ale ,Lola don’t be right girl for Ale they never have love full passion like have Ale and Summer ,so I hope that they return back together and be happy

  2. I must be among the few who think Summer should go to Paris and have her own goals and experiences. If she followed Ale to Barcelona, she would eventually tire of living his dream without a purpose of her own. She is too smart to be a groupie. Originally, I thought Ale and Summer had hot chemistry but he could not wait for her and he also rejected her after getting her hopes up. She should not drop everything for him. In some ways, Lola had a point. She had a better understanding of his life and habits. However, it would be rough to compete with your partner for many reasons – not to mention watching your partner get hurt. Ale’s anguish could provide an ambivalent ending. He could have realized that Lola was the person for him. In any event, I hope Edo and Summer reunite as good friends, and same for Summer and Sofi. Hopefully, the girls’ parents reunite. I don’t think a baby is a good plan at this life stage. The mother started her dream career and worked hard to raise two children already. It is really hard to start over again – the energy it takes to raise a child after giving your all to grown/almost grown children is daunting. True love is a good friendship – Dario and Sofi. Edo and Summer could have had that if they kept it platonic. Blue and the kid had true innocent puppy love.

  3. I love Ale and Summer together. The Love chemistry between one another that
    cannot be denied. I pray that Ale and Summer end up together against all odds!

    cannot be denied. I pray that Ale and Summer end uptogether!

  4. I have watched this movie several times this couple have a true connection their love story is so pure Lola put doubt in Summy mind she was looking fwd to joining him in Barcelona until she spoke to her I am hoping for a season 3 and Ale and Summy can get back together we need a love ending. Love can’t be bought she never told him that he called out her name in his dream then went to see her personally that was sneaky on Lola part.when two people love they should love fearlessly

  5. I love Summertime, the storyline between Summer and Ale is amazing. I do hope they do a Season 3 and Sumy and Ale are the endgame. The passion and chemistry, between Ale and Summer is so believable and beautiful.

    Lola, is high maintenance and knows Ale truly loves Summer. Let true love blossom. I hope Lola gives Ale her blessing and let him go.

    Summer and Ale, are truly happy when they are together 💞

  6. Wish Ale and Summer would have ended up together, however Summer’s hesitancy was understandable. Ale should have been willing to give her more time to think things over. He has a pattern of flip-flopping with girls. Even with Summer, he broke up with her, then said he wanted to be friends, but hit on her and had sex with her when he was with Lola. Then he felt guilty and tried and to end it, but got mad at Lola when she beat him in the race, so went back to Summer.

    He seems the type who always wants to be in a relationship, regardless of whether he’s “in love”. The both have some maturing to do. Hopefully, we’ll get a third season and see growth from both characters.

  7. I am 63 years old and I still love a good romance. Summer and Ale will always love each other. Please please give them a chance to stay together. Summer was so indecisive because she didn’t know what real love looked like. Man, if a good looking young man had worked that hard to win my love he wouldn’t have had to ask twice. Excitedly waiting for season 3 to see Summer and Ale together.

  8. There had to be some extra drama with Summer and Ale. I agree with everyone else here, Summer and Ale have a chemistry together like Jamie and Clair on Outlander. They are hot together. It almost seems real. Lola knows that Ale loves Summer, she’s heard him call out her name in his sleep. That’s why she went to Summer and asked her to give him up. Lola has come in between them, but Ale didn’t know she went to Summer putting doubt in Summer’s head about her love for Ale that really has not had a full chance. I hope Summer followers her heart and stick with Ale. However, she’ll have to deal with this trauma Lola has caused.
    Also Sofi shouldn’t make Summer feel guilty about anything. Sofi kicks it with whomever she wills. Neither should Dario make Ale feel guilty about his life. He asked Dario to come along to Barcelona with him as part of the deal, Dario made his choice. Edo, I feel will always be a friend to Summer, but she didn’t love him as her man.
    Love this series. I haven’t felt like this about a romance since Outlander. When will Season 3 come out. Can’t wait!

  9. I love Summer and Ale together, and would for one, Luke to see them have that happy ending together. We have all made mistakes, but our hearts wants what the heart wants! It was selfish of Lola to ask Sumy to give up her love for her. Who does she thinks she is to ask such a thing. Let love between Ale and Summer survive. They are the most romantic of couples, and makes me believe in true love!💘

  10. I so agree I’m upset that it didn’t have a definitive ending for summer and ale. They both deserves some happiness and even tho I’m sure he would get upset at Lola being hurt.. Lola is not the one for him. He’s never been as happy as he is with Summer and they both deserve their chance at happiness

  11. season 2 should have ended with Summer and Ale. Thad was more than fair sinds all the relationships of all the coupels had a happy ending.
    1. Dario stayed with Rita and her son Davide.
    2. Giulia went to Edo in the end. I suppose a was a hint they stayed together of went together to Hamburg.
    3, Jonas leaving was good also.
    4. Irene came for Sofia’s to go to join her in Milan.
    5. Isabelle reveals that she’s pregnant to Anthony. When he finds out, the two sit thoughtfully on the sofa together. I hope they keep the baby and stay together cause no relationship is perfect. After all Ale’s parents were back together.

    My point, the producer should have brought in a new male player in just for Lola so she could find her love because there will always be something between Ale and Summer, because Ale never had the romance and chemistry with Lola, like he had with Summer.
