Being Mary Jane has ended it’s 2nd season with an explosive two-part season finale. I chose not to blawg about the show this season because frankly, I was disappointed in the initial storyline.
Last season, our coveted Mary Jane Paul (Gabrielle Union) survived heartbreak after a lengthy affair with a married man (Andre – Omari Hardwick) who left the show to pursue a more lucrative deal in ‘Power.’ And in my opinion, writers of BMJ seemed at a loss on how to proceed without Hardwick’s presence.
While the 2nd season started off slowly, it finally picked up a bit but I still couldn’t get past the fact that Mary Jane seemed suddenly obsessed with her ex, David Paulk (Stephen Bishop) and his new relationship with his baby mama. Blah Blah Blah… enter Mary Jane playing the side-chick (again) as her ex decides he really loves her but is in a ‘situation’ where his fiancè is pregnant. *sigh* I just couldn’t.
During the 2-part season 2 finale, Mary Jane experiences a breakup (Sheldon (Gary Dourdan) didn’t quite work out), a makeup (Mary Jane and Kara (Lisa Videl) mend fences for the greater good of her career), a tempting primetime job offer and a shocking revelations (MJ discovers her BFF has been lusting after David for years), while finally ending with with a bang… literally!
