Hoping For One More Chance – Moe, Noah, Tabitha, Brady, Elodie, Jillian, Kayla
Who will end up with a happy ending? Will Moah be end game, despite all that has happened? What about Elodie and Jillian, despite Elodie owing karma a balance for stealing? Well, all that we know for sure is Brady wasn’t getting Tabitha back. Yes, he went to therapy, got into Stanford, after blackmailing Moe, but Brady is still Brady as shown by the bruise on Kayla’s arm. So all Tabitha has for him is a “F*** You.”
Working The Steps – Elodie, Doug, Jillian
One of the things Elodie hasn’t done is work the steps. She did stop stealing for a month, but then Moe needed her, and she had to start over. However, as for atoning and things of that nature? She never really pursued that. However, with what happened to Chase and trying to get her karma right, Elodie, with Doug’s help, returns all the stuff she stole from the mall and local places. A task which takes a while, but Doug is supportive, and after buying a button and giving it to Jillian, the gesture is taken note of and probably a factor in why they get back together. Well, that and Jillian coming out.
Time To Pay The Pauper – Brady, Elodie, Tabitha, Moe, Chase
Leaving the question: What to do about Chase? In the last episode, he took the fall, and he is relatively innocent in all this. Heck, the only thing he did wrong was falling for Moe. So, with that in mind, the girls decide to reveal they stole the test and, to tell the whole story as to why, and share the blame, Tabitha exposes what Brady did to her.
Thus he becomes a social pariah, and as everyone makes this discovery, Elodie, Tabitha, and Moe take a beach day. One in which, alongside celebrating their freedom, they also scatter the ashes of Elodie’s mother.
Which leaves us with a montage showing Elodie and Jillian together, Moe single, but hitting the books as she has done before, and Tabitha really embracing her photography. We even see one of her pieces, the triangle tattoos, in a gallery.
As for the rest? Well, Chase and Rachelle are dating, and it isn’t clear if the deserved worse happened to Brady or what. Heck, we don’t even know if the girls still got into any kind of trouble. We’re just given a happy ending for those we loved and are left to assume the worst when it comes to Brady.

- So, did Luca ever get the retribution he deserved?
Collected Quote(s) & .Gifs
The Possible Future We Saw
While, clearly, we won’t get a season 3, and a movie seems unlikely, at least we got some glimpse of everyone’s future. Granted, Elodie’s was maybe days or weeks ahead with her dating Jillian while Moe had an MIT shirt and Tabitha a piece in an art gallery. However, considering Elodie didn’t seem to want to be in music like Sabine, it wasn’t really clear what she wanted to do. So, her having friends and a girlfriend, technically, that was what she has been working for all this time. Just as Moe was trying to be top of her class and Tabitha really get into photography.
This pushes you to realize, Elodie isn’t so much an underdeveloped or straightforward character, as much as her mother’s death really stunted her development as a person. So her next chapter may not seem as grand, but it does show progress.
On The Fence
Brady Got A Comeuppance
Despite Luca getting away with over $10,000 in purchases, at the very least Brady got his. Mind you, like with the girls, we’re left to assume a lot, but considering how he wasn’t really all that liked before and now he was caught abusing a girl, he’s a social pariah. It’s just a shame we won’t get to see if Stanford pulled their acceptance letter or not. Never mind the possibility of Kayla or Tabitha’s parents pressing charges.

While a bittersweet end, Trinkets does give you just enough to be satisfied and glad it doesn't end on a cliffhanger.
