While the car accident at the end of the Sweet Magnolias season 1 finale might have sparked the biggest mystery of the offseason with fans attempting to identify who was in the car with Kyle, it wasn’t the only thing that has kept fans talking all off-season.

Throughout the first season, fans watched as Isaac attempted to gather intel on who his birth parents might be. After poking around throughout the season in hopes of gathering information, Isaac finally gathered the courage to have an emotional heart-to-heart with Dana Sue in the final moments of the season.

In a tearful exchange, Isaac reflected on his time in Serenity and how special being a part of the Sullivan’s community has been before asking Dana Sue the question that had been weighing on his mind: was she his mother?

Before Dana Sue could answer Isaac, her phone rang with news of the car accident bringing the conversation to an abrupt end before Dana Sue could answer.

Warning: The following post contains Sweet Magnolias season 2 spoilers. 

Is Dana Sue Isaac’s mom?

Although it was looking like Dana Sue could have been Isaac’s mother, Sweet Magnolias season 2 confirmed she is, in fact, not Isaac’s mother. As Dana Sue reveals to Isaac, she never gave a baby up for adoption and therefore could not be his mother; however, she does offer to help Isaac find his mother and father.

Who is Isaac’s mom in Sweet Magnolias?

After letting Isaac down softly in disproving his theory about her being his mother, Dana Sue — with Isaac’s permission — enlists help from Helen, who is able to investigate the identity of Isaac’s parents using her legal resources.

While her initial search for information doesn’t yield too much information from a legal standpoint, she’s determined to help Isaac find answers which leads them to follow breadcrumbs.

One of the few items Isaac’s birth mother left him was a Bible with highlighted passages, which leads them to Pastor June for guidance. When reading through the passages, Helen recognizes one of the passages highlighted in the Bible as one that is connected to The Serenity Sentinel.

Hoping something in The Sentinel archives might lead them to their next clue, Helen and Isaac head to the paper where they meet with Peggy Martin. As Isaac pulls out his Bible and begins explaining their hope that she might be able to see if they relate to a person or event The Sentinel covered.

What they never expected was for Peggy to recognize the quotes or reveal that the Bible happened to belong to her! The shocking revelation revealed that Peggy was Isaac’s birth mother, which allowed the two to begin forming a relationship across the season — one which we hope to see further explored in future seasons!
