The day/night has gone from bad to worse, and I am absolutely thrilled to be here telling this tale. Please don’t feel sympathetic because this whole sob story revolves around a TV show. Yes, that is where my life is at right now. A little less than one week ago, I discovered the show “Velvet” on Netflix. It takes place in 1950s Spain and revolves around a fashion store and the relationship between Alberto Marquez and Ana Ribera. Netflix has 2 seasons, but the show was just renewed for season 4 in Spain. I knew about the delay beforehand, but the last episode of season 2 still brought with it disappointment. My afternoon was spoiled by the realization that I had no episodes left to watch, at least for now. I shouldn’t have done it, but I gave in to curiosity and feverishly searched the internet for clues as to what happens in season 3. WORST. IDEA. EVER. If you are currently watching “Velvet” and do not want to know what happens, please STOP reading NOW. Seriously. SPOILERS AHEAD. You’ve been warned.
Alberto dies, and Ana, amidst the devastation, gives birth to his child. I am sure this news did not really affect you emotionally. Me on the other hand, I am a mess. I have been crying non-stop, and I feel like I’m going to throw up. Why such a violent reaction? I have no job therefore I had the time to dedicate several days of my life to Alberto and Ana’s love story. We, yes we, went through a lot of ups and downs this week. Finally, after two seasons worth of drama, they were together and happy. Of course something tragic had to happen. This is television. No one can be happy!! I was so anxious to watch the new episodes, and now I don’t think I can watch the show ever again.
Wow! I need a job. Or a hobby that pays well. 😂 I desperately need to watch something funny. Perhaps my favorite show “The Office.” If that doesn’t make me feel better, I am beyond help. Hint to Antena 3: Jim and Pam get married and live happily ever after. NO ONE DIES. Oy vey! Is that so hard?! Why is television so emotionally stressful???
Update: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Alberto is alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The moral of this story is I overreacted without actually watching season 3 and seeing for myself every single scene, not just a clip on Youtube. I am so flipping happy right now but also mad. Really really mad. Unbelievably mad that I had to go through this whole ordeal within one hour. I send my sincerest of apologies to Antena 3. Lo siento! Keep up the good work!
Update #2: It is now 11am, and I am somewhat awake. I ended up watching a few episodes of “The Secret Life of an American Teenager.” After all, what I really needed was more drama. 😂
