Keira Knightley and Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Juliet and Peter are still married, and his best friend played by Andrew Lincoln is no longer hopelessly in love with his pal’s wife. He shows up at the front door with a set of cards with a message on each, just like he did in the original when he professed his feelings for Juliet. Only this time it’s to tell her that he married a supermodel, and out comes Kate Moss in a sexy leopard print jacket to snuggle by his side. YAY! Everyone in this storyline wins.
Colin Firth‘s character Jamie proposed to his Portuguese sweetheart Aurelia (Lucia Moniz) at the end of the last film and it’s revealed that they’re happily married with three kids. In a hilarious reminder of how he’s still struggling with her native tongue, she shares that they have a fourth baby on the way! Awww, these two totally deserved such a wonderful happily ever after.
Liam Neeson‘s Daniel gets a big surprise from his step-son Sam (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) who is now living in New York. In the original, Daniel helped Sam come out of his shell to his school crush Joanna, and it turns out that the two met back up while adults living in the Big Apple. “My God you’ve grown” Liam hilariously tells his movie son who was just a young boy in the first film. Sam then surprises Daniel with a guest he brought to London with him – Johanna! The three hug it out and we’re reaching for the tissues. Everyone’s lives turned out so joyful and this is the perfect Love Actually sequel we always dreamed of!
