Poor John B (Chase Stokes) and Sarah Cameron (Madelyn Cline), the lovebirds on Outer Banks, just can't catch a break. 

As seen below in E! News' exclusive preview clip from the first episode of the hit Netflix series' second season, debuting Friday, July 30, even their attempt to enjoy a romantic slow dance along the beach leads to trouble. 

The scene begins with the pair reviving their "Val" and "Vlad" nicknames from the first season. "Hey, Val," John B says, to which Sarah naturally replies, "Hey, Vlad." He then asks, "Wanna dance?" She brings back her Russian accent to respond with a flirty, "Yes." 

They start dancing right in public, first with some playful moves and then by throwing their arms around each other and nestling their heads together. 

Of course, the mood suddenly shifts mid-dance, and we watch both of them as they quickly grow quite somber. John B even has tears in his eyes, still without either saying a word.

Finally, the nearby hotel staff applauds, and so John B and Sarah awkwardly cut their two-step short. It's unclear what made the two so melancholy, but it's safe to assume it has something to do with John B still finding himself on the run from the authorities in season two, even though the action moves to the Bahamas.

Fans of the treasure-hungry Pogues can get even more of their Outer Banks fix by joining the cast—including Chase, Madelyn, Madison Bailey, Jonathan Daviss and Rudy Pankow—for the official livestream premiere event from Netflix's YouTube page on Thursday, July 29 at 7 p.m. ET and 4 p.m. PT. The event includes games, trivia, fan moments and one very big surprise. 


Outer Banks' second season launches Friday, July 30 on Netflix.
