Using reflexives

Using reflexives

When using a reflexive verb, e.g., se laver, se lever, se réveiller, etc., I was under the impression that in the second person plural (vous) an "S" was added to the verb in the passé composé. Am I wrong?

Bonjour Donald,
This seems to me to be a contextual type issue. If «vous» is being used in the formal sense and speaking to one person, then no «-s» would be included; however, on the other hand if it is used in the plural sense, then yes an «-s» would be added. When looking at an example that uses the «nous» form, the «-s» was added to indicate plural.
