*Major spoilers for season 1 of Emily in Paris below!*

Ah, merde. Just when you thought going to a foreign country, starting a new job, and having to learn a brand new language wasn't hard enough, Emily in Paris takes things even further thanks to its big love triangle. After saying goodbye to Gabriel with one last night together before he headed off to Normandy, Emily was getting ready to head off to Saint-Tropez with her new beau Mathieu to celebrate their big win. Of course, the season couldn't end that easily and Antione announced that he bought the restaurant for Gabriel, allowing him to stay in Paris.

While we're going to have to wait until season two to come out to see what happens next to Emily, we took it upon ourselves to figure out who should she end up with and all the possibilities there are.

If Emily picks Gabriel:

This seems like the most unlikely option right now. Despite everything the show tells us about French people and their sex lives (thanks for that, Sylvie), this relationship is way too complicated to continue at the moment. Emily and Gabriel only had sex because they thought it was the last time they were ever going to see each other. But now that he's staying in Paris, not only are they still going to be living in the same building, Gabriel will likely get back with Camille like nothing ever happened. Of course, we still don't know exactly what she wanted to talk to Emily about with that mysterious text in the finale, but whatever it is, it looks like Emily will have to do some major damage control with her new French BFF.

This doesn't mean that this is the end for Emily and Gabriel. For all we know, it might be 100 percent over between him and Camille, which means he would be totally single in Paris. So there's still a chance for them in season two. And with their chemistry? They might not be able to stay away from each other too long.

If Emily picks Mathieu:

Mathieu and Emily were already heading off for their trip to the French Reviera before Gabriel and Antione's bombshell. There's no doubt that she'll still be heading off on her trip, but this will definitely be a true test on their relationship. Before this, all they had between them was trying to save Pierre's collection. Now the canvas is wiped clean. Just how compatible are they and will sparks fly on their vacation? Or will he find out about her little sleep over with Gabriel and that will further complicate things?

Of course, there's also the fact that he is a client. While Emily was never one to mix work and pleasure, she's truly doing as the French do as she continues to work at Savior. But things might be as easy as they hope, especially in the world of fashion where anything can happen. Will they be able to keep things separate when they need to? Or will it all get too messy? Guess we'll have to wait and see.

If Emily doesn't pick either of them:

This can really go two different ways. The first would be that the love triangle still exists and they try to fight for Emily, which would make it sort of different than what we've seen from Emily in Paris already. However, the second route would be seeing a single Emily in Paris again, which would be the same thing that we've seen before. Either way, we will definitely keep watching to see her try to take on the city and her new job.

Final verdict:

If you're a fan of series creator Darren Starr, who also gave us Younger and Sex and the City, you know that this is just getting started. There's always a big love triangle and it's just the beginning for Emily in her new journey. For now, we're sticking with Team Mathieu. He seems pretty stable and if they can find a way to balance work and play, it seems like they could make the perfect picture couple in Paris. And who knows? Maybe some new info will come along that will change our minds. Either way, we're already counting down the days until season 2.
