I finished Season 2--spoilers ahead:
Clara and Mateo. I loved how involved Mateo was this season, and I would watch a spinoff of him and Clara kicking ass and achieving world domination.
I liked the Pedro and Diana subplot but I think they could have done more with it. I would rather have had more of a focus on her story than to see Don Emilio pointlessly rise from the dead, which was both absurd and boring.
The actor who plays Pedro is perhaps the most convincing on-the-spot crier I have ever seen on TV. By the way, how old was he when he had Manuelito? Anyone know?
Raul was in most of the episodes. Even if he's laid up in a hospital, this is a good thing--the actor just brings so much to the show.
I didn't mind Cristina, but I wish they'd done more with her character. I wish they'd shown her daughter--maybe she could have come back for a bigger role on the show.
What a waste of Patricia! How amazing would it have been if she came back from India with a newly developed conscience, and decided she was going to assist the police in solving Valentine's (I think that was his name?) murder? I still can't watch Enrique on this show and appreciate him as a normal slimeball; he is a cold-blooded murderer and has never even thought twice about what he did. Even better: Patricia comes back and teams up with Barbara to take Enrique down. Just a missed opportunity all around.
What a waste of Patricia, part II: She comes back and doesn't even have a run-in with Jonas. I don't see him cheating, as he's matured from his lothario days, but there could have been some heat, an attaction, some sort of pull. Maybe he thinks about it. Something.
I know Manuelito is a kid, and really shouldn't be settling down at all, but we all know he's just going to dump Ines the minute Lourdes returns. I wish Ines had told him no thanks.
So we see a long, tortured scene with The Sword in Raul's hospital room and no followup? Does Raul even know he saved his life?
The absense of Max! Why can't he come back and at least have a fling with Dona Blanca? I will still never forgive the show for matching her with Don Emilio just because she was the only other character over 40.
It's really too bad they canceled season 3--I would have loved more time with these characters. Anyone hear anything about why they canceled?
