Spoilers ahead for The Flight Attendant season 1.

With an eerie Hitchcock ambiance, Houdini-level escapes, and cryptic flashbacks drenched in trauma and vodka, HBO Max’s mystery thriller The Flight Attendant stars Kaley Cuoco as the functioning alcoholic flight attendant, Cassie Bowden as her life falls apart after waking up next to a dead man named Alex Sokolov in a Bangkok hotel room with no memory of how it happened.

Cuoco, who also executive produces the project, took to Instagram last month to drop the season 2 teaser writing, “Cassie (and her bangs) are back baby!”

On Tuesday she stepped out with a bang (we had to), to attend the red carpet premiere in a black and navy embellished Dior gown, with help from stylist Brad Goreski. “Where do I begin?! We finally got to celebrate @flightattendantonmax last night, and to say I’m proud of everyone is an understatement,” Cuoco posted.

With the series’ sophomore season premiering on HBO Max April 21, Cassie moves from New York to Los Angeles, where she becomes an asset for the C.I.A. We don’t know about you, but we need a bit of a refresher before we dive back into the mystery show.

Ahead, we’re breaking down where the series left off. Beware of spoilers ahead.

In season 1, Cassie was considered a suspect in Alex Sokolov’s murder, which lead her to experience hallucinations as she dealt with the aftermath (and intense childhood trauma) with excessive amounts of alcohol.

While conducting her own investigation, Cassie eventually discovered that her new boyfriend Buckley Ware was really the psychotic hitman known as Feliks, responsible for the death of Sokolov in Bangkok. Cassie unexpectedly teamed up with the equally dangerous hit-woman Miranda to take him down.

Simultaneously, Annie (played by Zosia Mamet), a lawyer and Cassie’s best friend went to the F.B.I. with the information sourced by her hacker boyfriend Max to clear her Cassie’s name.

Cassie and Miranda decided to travel to Rome together and take Feliks out, but he expectedly followed them there. After Miranda was held up and shot in the leg after a confrontation with her boss (who sent Feliks on his mission), she missed the plane to Rome. While Miranda got on a later flight, Cassie was forced to protect herself, escaping Feliks’ wrath by the skin of her teeth after arriving in Italy. 

Seeking out the protection of her friend Enrico, the two acquired a gun for safety and staked out in her hotel room. After discovering Miranda’s unconscious body laying in the bathtub, Feliks attacked Cassie and stabbed Enrico. Cassie managed to stab and shoot Feliks, but he finally went down after getting hit with a shot from Cassie’s friend and fellow flight attendant Shane. Shane laters admitted to working for the C.I.A. tracking their coworker Megan (played by Rosie Perez), who has committed treason and corporate espionage, selling her husband’s privileged information to North Korea.

After police arrived on the scene, Cassie asked if Miranda is okay when Shane tells her no one else was in the room with them.

When the dust settles, Cassie and Annie sat down at a diner for a bite to eat. When Cassie reached into her pocket, she found a memento left by Miranda with a note saying, “See you soon. x, M.”

Shane and Cassie returned to work when he tells her that his boss at the C.I.A. is interested in having Cassie join a “human asset” program.

With the second season taking on big-name guest stars like Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s Cheryl Hines, comedian Margaret Cho, and Sharon Stone, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for Cassie and her crew.
