    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 instead of that final shot of 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?

    Just finished S2 yesterday. I was rooting for Dev and Francesca and was bummed when she didn't break off her engagement. But I also thought Dev didn't handle it well and potentially made her decision easier by acting like a jerk when she was clearly in emotional turmoil over what to do.

    I have no idea what the final shot of them in bed was supposed to be. And it's unclear whether Aziz plans to do another season, so we may never find out.

    Man I musta been tired. This totally zoomed by me. I didn't even recognize that it was Francesca. I assumed it was the chick he had met(re-met) a couple eps earlier on the street and interpreted it as him moving on.

    Now I've gotta re-watch it.

    But I like my ending better(hah). Because I don't know where the show goes if he has a full time love interest.

    To me it seemed like they were showing that she had picked Dev but she was miserable and regretted the decision.

    Wow, I really don't see where you got that from. There was just nothing to base that (or pretty much any opinion) on and it very much would not be the tone of the show. Maybe you are revealing your deepest fears :)

    The looks on their faces was not happy, like a new couple in love would be.

    Just rewatched the scene. Youre right it was just her, but she didn't look happy to me.

    I read the scene as "hoo boy I hope I made the right decision."

    It's funny, I wonder if how you read that scene reflects something about yourself :) I read it as contentment. I just went to watch it again and still see that.
