12 'Fifty Shades Darker' Scenes We Can't Wait to See On-Screen

Fifty Shades Darker is promising to be more intense than the first installment, and with an incredible cast being added to star alongside Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, the anticipation is really building.

Our Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey develop a deeper relationship in Darker -- and with that comes the baggage that we all often carry. Christian has a lot of it in the forms of ex-submissives and his first dom. But even beyond the new characters, there are new situations that these two lovers find themselves in -- some are emotionally challenging and other are really kinky.

Here are some of the most anticipated moments from Fifty Shades Darker that we cannot wait to see on-screen.

1Returning to the red room of pain.

Let's be honest -- we miss the spankings. We can read about them in the books, but seeing them on film is just captivating -- it's the release, the climax, the pleasure from the pain.

2Ana's first day on the job.

Ana's first day on the job at SIP is going to be full of excitement and nerves, but we can't help but wonder if she will be biting pencils, too. Sure hope not.

3Ana's conflict with Jack Hyde.

Things seem sort of okay when Ana starts working for Jack, but then things get awful. Jack's unwanted advances and actions toward Ana will no doubt be a cringeworthy scene.

5Enter Leila Williams.

No, this is not a scene from The Walking Dead -- it's Bella Heathcote as Christian's ex-submissive Leila Williams. And she's getting ready to attempt to drain the life out of Ana.

6Seeing Christian and Ana all in love.

In Fifty Shades Darker, Ana becomes Christian's girlfriend, not just his submissive, so the L-O-V-E factor really heats up. Seeing these two kiss will always be a vision.

7The introduction of new ... supplies.

We know that Christian likes to shop at the hardware store for some of his sexual playthings, and in Darker, he takes things to a whole other level of pain/pleasure. Nipple clamps. Oh yes. Ana learns all about them in the book, so we are eager to see if they will grip us in the sequel.

9The new "Laters, baby."

"Laters, baby" proved to be the phrase that inspired memes along with chuckles after Fifty Shades of Grey came out. The verdict was mixed. The new phrase may very well be "kinky f-ckery" and we are really hoping these words come out of Ana's mouth on-screen.

10Christian letting Ana into his "forbidden zone."

There are a lot of firsts for Ana in Fifty Shades of Grey, but Darker gives us a first for Christian as well. The tables get turned a bit (just a little) and Ana takes on the role as dominant (in the most submissive sense). We will have to wait to see if Darker depicts Ana entering Christian's "forbidden zone" but we are hopeful this is all part of the kinky f-ckery.

11The fate of Kate and Elliot.

Ana's best friend Kate (played by Eloise Mumford) will be back, and this time perhaps more in love with Christian's brother Elliot (played by Luke Grimes) than ever. While Ana and Christian come first, it will be fun to see this secondary love story develop.

12Meeting Elena Lincoln.

The moment Kim Basinger as Elena Lincoln appears on-screen will be one of the film's highlights. There is so much anticipation surrounding Mrs. Robinson, and we cannot wait to see how things go down between her and Christian -- as well as with Ana.
