It's been almost a year since we left Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) in the controversial newsroom where he lost his temper, bashed America and argued tirelessly with Mackenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer) ... all while fighting his romantic feelings for her.
If you haven't had time to rewatch Season 1 of "The Newsroom" before Sunday night's Season 2 premiere -- what ended up happening with Maggie (Allison Pill) and Jim (John Gallagher Jr.) again? -- click through the slideshow to refresh your memory on the events and love triangles of Season 1.
Poor, Poor Will
He may be on the grumpier side, but Will's really a great guy who tries to do his job as best he can. He's still in love with his ex-girlfriend MacKenzie, which is actually a recipe for success because she's obviously in love with him too, but neither of them will do anything about it. Having a history with prescription drug (and sometimes pot cookie) abuse, it's not exactly mind-blowing when Will ODs in the season finale, or that he ends up in a screaming match with MacKenzie. It seems that everyone's still trying to destroy his reputation, including ACN head Reese (Chris Messina) and evil TMI reporter Nina (Hope Davis). Can't this guy catch a break?
Jim Has A Complicated Roommate Situation On His Hands
When you're a shy, socially awkward guy, it must be flattering to have two cute roommates after you. The problem is, the one Jim's dating isn't the one he actually wants. He claims to have feelings for Lisa (Kelen Coleman), but it's obvious he and Maggie have "soulmate" potential. This is what we call a recipe for disaster, Jim.
Maggie Has No Idea What She Wants
Even though she swears she's in love with Don and agrees to move in with him, it's obvious Maggie's heart lies with Jim. When Jim caught her sobbing in front of a "Sex And The City" tour bus, it seemed like it was finally their moment ... but alas, it wasn't, and both characters decided to resume their miserable relationships with people they don't love.
Is Don Really In Love With Sloan?!
Although they've had their fair share of ups and downs and possible feelings for other coworkers, Don (Thomas Sadoski) asks Maggie to move in with him in the season finale. She says yes, even though she's clearly in love with Jim, and the fabulously brainy Sloan Sabbith (Olivia Munn) is clearly in love with Don and <em>confesses</em> it. What a tangled web these guys weave.
Charlie's Up To No Good
Arguably one of the best parts of "The Newsroom," Charlie (Sam Waterston) remains a man of mystery. He spends a bunch of time sneaking around, but he earned a few brownie points (no pun intended) in the finale for getting mad at Reese and Leona (Jane Fonda) for hacking into Will's phone and revealing that he was high on the night the U.S. Navy SEALs killed Bin Laden.
Season 2 of "The Newsroom" premieres on Sun., July 13 at 10 p.m. ET on HBO.
