Episode 5 – The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 (2008)

Bridget, an up and coming college futbol player, returns home for the summer after her first year at Brown. She reunites with her high school best friends for their annual sacred pants blessing.
While cleaning out the basement at her dad’s house, she finds a secrect box of letters from her grandmother that he’d kept hidden from her.
Before she can reconcile what this all means, she’s off to Turkey for an archaeology internship trip.
Soon, her crew has made several notable fossil finds and they celebrate with a night of dancing, aided by the magical pants.
Later, while captaining a match of futbol, she makes a groundbreaking discovery into ancient Greek culture. However, Bridget’s past proves to be difficult as dealing with ancient mummy’s brings back feelings about death and the suicide of her mother. Fueled by sadness, she reads the letters from her grandmother and discovers their shared feelings of grief over her mom.
She returns to the states to visit her grandmother. They catchup on the years they missed and share stories about Bridget’s mother – good and bad.
Bridget meets again with her father, with whom she’d been distant from for years. They talk about the mental health struggles her mother had and grow closer over the realization that they both loved her mother in very different ways.
Disaster strikes when Bridget’s friend group finds that their magical pants have been stolen and gone missing in Greece.
Bridget’s girl gang heads to Greece to track down the unaccounted for magic pants. While they never find the pants, they do rediscover one thing – the value of strong female friendship.
