After the events of season one, Vince and Ben are no longer in a relationship and only speak to each other at Ben’s request. Despite their desire to be together, Ben finds it too painful. When Jamie pays him a visit, he persuades Ben not to punish Vince Fuller by telling him he didn’t do anything wrong.

Most of these talented cast members are expected to reprise their roles when the series returns with Cruel Summer Season 2.
