At the end of the first season, Harry was suspended for the fight, and Charlie and Tao’s friendship was still broken. Charlie quits rugby and stops talking to Nick because he is sad. Tao and Nick meet because they both want Charlie to be happy. Charlie and Tao makeup and Charlie tell Ben that he was wrong to hurt Tao.
After Nick tells Charlie that he doesn’t want them to break up, they kiss. Nick tells Charlie that he wants to come out and tell their friends when they go on a date by the water. This makes Charlie happy. Later that day, he comes out to his mother, who is happy to see him. Heartstopper Season 2 will show how people at school feel about Charlie and Nick’s relationship.
