When the first season of Trinkets came out in 2019, I watched it all the way through a few times in a row. If you’ve seen it before, you know it’s impossible not to be drawn to the nuanced delivery of a powerful friendship between three powerful girls, as well as the fresh storyline and beautifully modern way of delivering it. If at all possible, I think season 2 is even better than the first. The choices made for developing the plot and all the characters paid off immensely, leaving us with a glimpse of Elodie finally in a healthy (age-appropriate) relationship, Tabitha confronting Brady and getting to know herself, and Moe continuing to learn from her mistakes and grow from them. And what a finale.
The soundtrack, too, is impeccable. It delivers a variety of styles while staying consistent and realistic to what these teenage girls would actually be listening to in their free time. It assists in the storytelling as well, with Kat Cunning (who plays Sabine) contributing her voice to a few tracks.
Here are my favorites.
