The kissing booth was premiered in 2018 staring Joel Courtney, Jacob Elordi and king. The second installment was released over weekend and is a huge hit but left everyone with load of questions.
For those who haven’t seen the film yet, The original film centered on Elle, a high school student who, along with her best friend Lee, creates a kissing booth for the school, where she ends up kissing Noah, her secret crush. Following their kiss, they begin a secret romance that breaks one of her friendship rules with Lee, putting their relationship in jeopardy. The Kissing Booth ended with Noah heading off to college in Boston as Elle was about to begin her senior year of high school, thus beginning their long-distance relationship that is explored in the sequel. The Kissing Booth 2 also ends with a potential problem for Elle, where she has to decide whether she’s going to Harvard in Boston to be with Noah or going to Berkeley to be with Lee.
In an interview with ET, The Kissing Booth 2 stars weighed in on the ending, specifically why Elle lied about getting waitlisted at both schools. Elordi explains that he thinks that Elle is under a lot of pressure from both men, which makes her scared to make a decision. King also explained her character’s decisions stating:
“She’s really good at getting herself into a pickle, that’s for sure. Elle Evans is notorious for trying to make everybody happy, which in turn, the way she goes about it, makes everybody mad in the long run, including herself. Elle has a lot of figuring out to do, and she figures out a lot during this movie. And then, in the end, she gives herself even more figuring out to do, which is crazy. We don’t know what’s going to happen… I don’t know why she does that.
