    Starting a spoilers thread, since I want to talk about what happened.

    How are Mario and Francesca related? During episode 1, I assumed he was her son. But it became clear as the season went on that was not the case. Did I just miss it?

    I got tired of Francesca and that story about halfway through the second to last episode. Maybe that was the point, but she went from a friend to someone just unfairly leading Dev on. I think the final two episodes were the weakest of the season.

    The last shot with them in bed - was that from the night when she stayed over after the storm? I thought so, but then she didn't have her ring on, so I thought not.

    I would have liked much more Arnold, Denise, and Brian.

    Yeah, it wasn't from that snowed in night. Different clothes and bedding too, I believe.

    Actually, I was thinking that it would have been better to just end season 2 with that shot of Francesca before the cut to the bed scene. And if they wanted to insert more uncertainty, have her debate whether or not to take the engagement ring off.

    True. It might be realistic but it doesn't make Dev's behavior less jerky, IMO.

    By the way, I loved her character. And dig that kind of romantic interest personally. Smart, witty, fun, a touch of spontenaity.

    Yeah, who wouldn't fall for that character?

    Then again, that was one of the criticisms that I've read, that the character is yet another "Manic Pixie Dream Girl".

    They do exist in real life. :p

    Which others do we know of in TV? Lorelai Gilmore?
