What an episode!
I kind of thought that Gabriel wouldn't be able to stay with Sophie very long. It doesn't matter who he goes to, his heart is always with Ally.
Speaking of, Ally has her hands FULL this week! She follows Tanya to the grocery where she confronts her about the money Vince left her in his will. It's for Tanya's daughter, Ophelia, who happens to be Vince's daughter. Vince and Tanya carried on an affair for two years and he was the one to break it off when Ally became pregnant with Gigi. Ally seems almost able to deal with the fact Vince had an affair with Tanya. After all, Vince having affairs isn't old news to Ally. I think it would have been easier for her had a child not been in the picture.
An upset Ally calls Christine needing to talk about everything. Gigi overhears the two women talking and leaves to see Ophelia. Not knowing where Gigi went sends Ally into a state of panic. She calls Gabriel, Christine and Nat and, like true friends and family, they come to her aid immediately.
Gigi and Romeo both know about Ophelia being their sister. Gigi remarked to Romeo that he was becoming like their father and he is. Romeo is holding a lot of anger right now. I truly hope that living around Joe, who seems to be much calmer and less prone to fits of anger than Vince, does Romeo some good.
Christine and Spiros. For a while there I didn't think anything would end up happening between them. He wasn't about to give up though, running down a flight of stairs to meet the elevator. It will be interesting to see just what comes of their new relationship in season three (if there is one). Will it be a long lasting one? Will it just be a little fling?
I loved how this series ended. The ending of series one was shocking and sad because of the death of Vince. This series ended much differently. It almost felt like an entirely new chapter was starting in Ally's life. She had her family together, she had her friends together, she kissed Gabriel! and Max and Christine have sort of made up but they still have TONS of talking to do about so many things.
I had to smile as the camera pulled back on Ally sitting at her radio in the shed Joe had built for her. It was nice to see her doing that again; nice to see her life coming back together. She always seemed so happy sitting there talking with her cosmonaut friend.
Well, this is the end of season two. It's bittersweet because, while it's great to find out what happened I'm really going to miss the show. The writers and actors on this show are brilliant. Here's hoping there will be news of a third season very soon!
