What is the plot of Sweet Magnolias Season 1?
The first season deals with three best friends, namely Maddie, Helen, and Dana Sue, who struggle to balance their lives. They get together and form a group called Sweet Magnolias. The show opens with Maddie going through a divorce as her husband Bill falls in love with another woman, Noreen Fitzgibbons. Her best friends Helen and Dana Sue, help her deal with the shock of the divorce.
They suggest opening up a spa, and Maddie reluctantly agrees to the new business idea. While setting out on this new adventure, Maddie must also take care of her three kids; Katie, Tyler, and Kyle. Not only this, but her life is further complicated as she begins to date Tyler’s baseball coach, Cal Maddox. As the weights of a new business venture, a new dating life, and the added new responsibility of being a single mom weigh down on Maddie, she struggles to keep up.
On the other hand, Dana Sue tries to keep up with her work while struggling with high blood sugar and connecting with Annie, her daughter. She may also have an estranged son named Isaac, who works as a kitchen staff member in her restaurant named Sullivan. Meanwhile, Helen, who has focused her entire life on having a successful career, realizes that she is ready to have kids. She discusses this with her partner Ryan who refuses because he is still traumatized by the dead newborn he saw in the past.
This results in the relationship ending and Helen moving on to find someone on the same page. The story also features Bill and Noreen, who end up getting pregnant. Bill must also fix his relationships with the people he has hurt, namely Tyler. To do this, he even buys Tyler his own personal car!
However, this action makes Noreen realize that Bill is quite egotistical and self-centered. Thus, she, too, leaves him. Bill then goes back to Maddie and asks her for another chance, but the season ends before giving him a definite answer. The season’s finale features Maddie’s son Kyle getting in a severe car crash. An unknown character is also present in the passenger seat, but producers will only reveal the details of him/her in the second season.
