Yes you can let the table flow over to the second page with the different

Yes it would.

The reason it works is because the formatter chooses "the next page 
geometry" from the set of page geometries independent of the constructs 
found in the flow.  So, even if the table begins using one simple page 
master, when it overflows to a new page (the second page) the formatter 
simply looks inside the page sequence for the page geometry that is "next 
in the sequence" and can, indeed, be simple page master 2.
