To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You reveals that Peter Kavinsky was waiting for Gen in the hot tub instead of Lara Jean.
Ever since To All the Boys I've Loved Before came out in August 2018, fans have been obsessed with Lara Jean Song Covey (Lana Condor) and Peter Kavinsky's hot tub scene. After pretending to date to make Peter's ex, Gen, jealous, Lara Jean and Peter catch feelings for each other. They then tell each other in a hot tub on a school ski trip and make out with each other.
The entire scene is steamy, sexy and romantic but, in To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, we find out that it was all a lie.
Say what?! Yes. Shortly after the hot tub scene in the first film, someone posts a video of it on Instagram and Lara Jean gets slut-shamed at school. Lara Jean is convinced that Gen shared it but Peter convinces her that she didn't. However, in To All the Boys 2, we find out that Gen did upload the video and even worse, Peter was originally waiting in the hot tub for Gen.
Peter accidentally reveals the shocking news in a fight with Lara Jean after she confronts him about spending time with Gen behind her back. It later turns out that Peter was comforting Gen because her parents were getting divorced and Lara Jean forgives him at the end of the movie. However, fans of Lara Jean are less forgiving and are outraged by the revelation.
Here are just a few of the reactions.
Peter was waiting for Gen that day and never mentioned it, knew Gen made the video and he kept it a secret to protect her, still communicates with her & invites her after Lara Jean said don’t...all while he gets mad she asked John Ambrose to bring the pizza... #ToAlltheBoys2 pic.twitter.com/wtcYOlXdfq— hanbin-ah 💭 (@sseurekii) February 13, 2020

If i found out that my boyfriend’s ex leaked suggestive footage of me and him in a hot tub causing public humiliation and discomfort for me, and my man was still buddy buddy with her I would simply leave him for John Ambrose McClaren #PSIStillLoveYou pic.twitter.com/pTQbOcJKYR
Peter Kavinski’s dirty ass just wanted a girl to make out with in the hot tub and hang out with every now and then, it can be Gen or Lara, he doesn’t give a shit. John Ambrose wanted LARA JEAN, just her, not because he wants someone to be with but because she’s LARA. JEAN.— 🌸 Iris 🌸 (@irisvicencio) February 17, 2020
Team John Ambrose we ride at dawn!
