The second season is broken into three timelines: summer 1999, winter 1999, and summer 2000, much like the first season of “Cruel Summer.” Different color schemes are used to visually identify each timeline. The death of a close friend of Megan (Sadie Stanley) and Isabella (Lexi Underwood) is the subject of an investigation by the police in the summer of 2000. In the fourth episode, “Springing a Leak,” a pipe leak during the winter of 1999 compels Megan, Debbie, and Isabella to temporarily move in with the Chambers family. In the meantime, the police make a startling discovery in the summer of 2000. (you can watch the recap here)
