My only problem was it came across as very stereotypical. And the mom was waaaaaay over the top, IMO. Oh, I hope that Shane and Carmen stay happy forever...Carmen is muy caliente, and frankly, I don't think Shane has ever looked better. But I see too many obstacles between them and long-lasting happiness, mainly because of Shane's past, and Carmen's family. I know they love Shane now, but how will they react when they find out just how close Shane and Carmen really are? I'm probably just using incorrect analytical terms for these two headcases. Alice just never seems very sure of herself, while Dana atleast portrays an image of a confident woman. And, from what I gather, it was Alice's jealousy that caused them to break up, although I'm not sure if they've been entirely clear on that. Did Dana cheat on her, then break it off? Or was it Alice's jealousy which drove her into the chef's arms? Thats what I meant when I said that so much had changed since last season, and I'm kinda in the dark about what caused some of the changes.
