Spoilers for ‘Dance of the Fireflies’ below .
The final moments of the first season of ‘Dance with the Fireflies’ are… Well, it’s a lot to process. Of all the mysteries the finale sets up, perhaps the most fundamental is: why does Kate hate Tully so much now?
“When I said I could never forgive you for what you did, what do you think I meant?” Kate says as she leads her best friend away from her own father’s funeral.
Katherine Heigl talked about this scene on Oprah Mag recently, and while she can’t reveal exactly what’s going on, she did rule out the possibility that it was Kate’s husband Johnny coming between them . “It can’t be that Tully is sleeping with Johnny. I don’t think any friendship could top that. I’ll fight to the death not to,” Ella Heigl said.
In Kristin Hannah ‘s novel , we see a breakup between the two friends after Tully invites Kate and her daughter Marah to discuss their relationship on live television. “Tully was trying to help, but in a really thoughtless way: it was all about herself,” says Katherine. “She doesn’t realize that she is publicly humiliating her friend on TV and at the same time siding with the 14-year-old. That would be enough to seriously break the friendship .”
Whether that happens in the series remains to be seen, but what about Johnny? Will he survive the explosion that devastated his group in Iraq?
The answers to this and more appear in the source material, though it’s possible Netflix deviates from this to keep fans intrigued . Let’s just hope they do, because in the second half of the book, which will likely form the basis for season two, a tragedy occurs that Kate and Tully can’t just walk away from.

Each has lost their way and they will need each other.” the other, and perhaps a miracle to transform their lives.
