Whenever there is an extensive break between seasons, it’s easy to get confused and forget who certain characters are, especially if they only played a minor role but then return for a new storyline in a future season. Sex/Life originally premiered in 2021 and Sex/Life season 2 is finally premiering on March 2, 2023.

That’s a long time between seasons, so you’d be forgiven for forgetting who some of the minor season 1 characters like Trina, Caroline, and Emily are when they pop back up in the new episodes. For those who don’t remember Emily, she is Cooper’s ex-girlfriend.

When we first met Emily in season 1, it was during a flashback to the beginning of Cooper and Billie’s relationship. Emily and Cooper were still friendly despite being exes, Cooper was even at her wedding to her husband, Matt.

The next time we see Emily is in the present when Billie and Cooper are going through a rough patch. Devon calls Emily (because of course he does) to try and get Cooper out of his funk. This time, Emily is divorced from Matt and has been for several years.

Thanks to Devon, she’s under the impression that Cooper wants to get back together and he politely lets her down. The last time Emily appeared in Sex/Life was in season 1, episode 4.
