Sweet magnolias Season 3 has finally premiered on Netflix, and all of the questions we’ve had since the Season 2 finale have been answered.
When we last left the Sweet Magnolias in Season 2, the three best friends were dealing with choices and changes in their lives. Helen was caught between two great loves, Erik and Ryan. While she seemed pleased with Erik, Ryan returned to Serenity and popped the question.
So what happens to Helen and Ryan in Season 3? Will they walk down the aisle and begin a life together in Serenity? Here’s everything you need to know about the status of their relationship after Season 3.
WARNING: Spoilers ahead Sweet magnolias Season 3!
Will Helen and Ryan get together in Sweet Magnolias season 3?
No, Helen and Ryan are not ending up together Sweet magnolias Season 3. That doesn’t mean the couple won’t get together in season three, though. Now that Ryan tells Helen he wants everything she wants — kids, a life in Serenity, the whole thirty feet — she chooses to be with him over Erik. She’s wanted this relationship to work for years.
But when Maddie expresses concerns about Helen’s relationship with Ryan during a margarita night, her honesty causes a rift between the Magnolias, resulting in them not speaking to each other for a few episodes. During this time, Helen and Ryan’s relationship seems to be on the wane as Ryan grows more restless in the South. He approaches Helen with the idea of going somewhere else.
Suddenly Helen realizes that he doesn’t want everything she wants and that she may have made the wrong decision. The illusion collapses (and Maddie was right, which isn’t important but worth mentioning…she got infected for what!) and Helen breaks up with Ryan. Though she and Ryan are no longer together, she doesn’t immediately get back together with Erik — or at all.
After her final breakup with Ryan, Helen is trying to rebuild her relationship with Erik, but it will take time. In the season finale, Helen catches the bouquet at Dana Sue and Ronnie’s vow renewal, and later at the party, she and Erik catch a glimpse of it. They obviously have a future, but there isn’t one for Helen and Ryan.
