Spoiler: Season 2 Of ‘On My Block’ Has Fans Screaming With Joy And Fear

Netflix

Our collective consciousness is firmly placed in the second stage of grief at Netflix for canceling One Day at a Time. One of the shows we have left from Netflix for YA Latino representation is On My Block.

To recap Season 1: Jamal found the Roller World money. Monse found her birth mother and doesn’t know it yet. Diego didn’t kill Tyrell as ordered by his older brother/ gang leader Spooky. Tyrell showed up at Olivia’s quince and shot Ruby and Olivia. ☹️

SPOILER: We have all the spoilers. ⬇️

You may be able to reduce your therapy costs by 70 percent by just skimming through these spoilers. That’s because fans have all the funniest memes to cope.

The fans have spoken: nobody is missing Olivia this season.

Sure, some people are mourning the death of Olivia but so many On My Block Fans are not. Twitter has not a tear to shed over the death of the character.

Even Kehlani, Goddess Herself, came out as a major fan of On My Block.

As tragic as episode one of Season Two was, the comic relief was geared toward Latinos and minorities. When it was revealed Ruby was planning to give Olivia a Spanish-English dictionary for her birthday? 😂

We’re here to see masculinity presented as a strong display of feelings.

Caption: “i’m ngl, seeing both ruby and cesar express their pain with tears is so beautiful to me. it’s nice to see a change in masculinity in shows/movies. it’s ok for boys to show emotion. it only shows that they’re human. i love you #onmyblock!”

When we first read this, our hearts dropped, too.

These On My Block fans have no chill when it comes to showing their love for their favorites. However, is there even a lie in this tweet? Honestly, we ask you to let us know.

Even Jason Genao came out on Twitter to thank the fandom.

His Twitter words exactly: “I want to say thank you for those who are showing support. This version of Ruby is for those who are told emotions are for the weak and more so those struggling with mental health. Your platform is now too big for them to ignore. We see you (we see you jasmine voice)”

Plus, we get to see how Ruby and Jasmine’s friendship evolves without Julia (forgive me, ghost).

The two have been longtime neighbors and Jasmine makes extra effort to comfort Ruby during his grieving process. Then she puts on a Bachelor’s-esque show for Ruby to get a date to the dance. Don’t worry–Monse threw feminist shade all over it.

The fandom elevates Jasmine to A-list performance and full level obsession this season.

@PricklyPundit was 100 percent here for Jasmine: “She was excellent as the comic relief in S1, but only 3 episodes in to S2 and my love for Jasmine is officially solidified. The glimpse into her home life and overall outlook on life was done really well and added such nuance to an already amazing character. #OnMyBlock

Turns out, Jasmine is living in Enlightenment.

This season, we learn about her family life and how she has the strength to be fearlessly herself. She lives for herself–nobody else.

Jamal had a total and complete meltdown over having that much cash.

He didn’t tell his friends about the Roller World money because he felt it was too insensitive. We know he felt this way because he talked about it extensively with the gnomes from Julio.

He set up cameras in his room and watched himself roll around in the piles of cash.

Boy was having legitimate paranoia about being rolled up on if anyone found out he had $200k in a duffel in his laundry bin.

THEN, THERE WAS THIS REVELATION:

Cardi B’s got at least another 20 years before she becomes an abuelita but we have a glimpse into the future now. 😂

Let’s talk about when Monse discovered Julia was actually her mother, Selena.

CREDIT: @girlthatszayy / Twitter

No, this is not a telenovela, but it might as well be. Monse was telling Julia about how her name is a mashup of her parents’ name and Julia comes out with this. 🤭

We’re all pissed off at how that relationship ended…

CREDIT: @elisionbtw / Twitter

How could Selena just start crying in response to her daughter asking if she could have left her if she looked more like her (read: white).

Selena told her friends that Monse’s dad was abusive.

CREDIT: @whykyy / Twitter

Bye, Becky. Monse could never live with her mom when her new friends are all afraid of her dad.

The gang seems to be unafraid of Spooky this season.

Jamal tried to buy Diego’s protection and Spooky just swiped the money.

Spooky: “We’re not going to forget you helped us.”

Jamal: “I don’t care about your good will. I want my money!”

Jamal and Abuelita continue to be the most important friendship on television.

CREDIT: @yagurlabii / Twitter

The two found $200,000 together in Season 1 and launder it in Season 2. Iconic.

Oh, and we’re all scarred by the finale.

🚨 SPOILER ALERT 🚨

All four of the kids get kidnapped! We’re all Santos’ to you, Netflix.

Netflix, we’re already gearing up to fight for Season 3.

Now we know to watch and rewatch that over and over, get on social media, and get our brown voices heard. We need this content and we deserve it.

20 Of The Most Uncomfortably Awkward Photos Of Trump Before He Was President

No matter how you feel about the current president, you’ve got to admit that Donald Trump is a bizarre guy. Between late night tweet storms and his obsession with fast food, he’s got some usual habits. Not to mention all the strangeness that has arisen from his time as a reality star and cameos on TV and in movies. Overall, it’s a lot of weirdness associated with Trump.

Even before he became president, Trump was one of the most widely photographed people in the world. For better or for worse, all his past weirdness has resulted in some truly bizarre photos. Thanks to the internet, these pictures have been immortalized forever for future generations to look at and ask, “WTF?”

Here are some of the most baffling pre-president pictures of Trump that the internet has to offer.

1. This pic is more than a little ironic.

Imgur.com

Doves have long been a symbol of hope and peace. Considering Trump has picked fights with world leaders, celebrities, politicians, journalists and random citizens, it’s pretty ironic. This picture was taken for the cover of a 1985 issue of “Manhattan, inc.” Still, there’s no real explanation as to why they felt he needed to be holding a bird.

2. Just plain creepy.

TheHollywoodGossip.com

Even before he became president, people have expressed concern over Trump’s relationship with daughter, Ivanka. He has made several comments saying he would be dating her if he wasn’t her father. The most creepy, though, are the pics of the two together when she was young. Here she is sitting on his lap, gazing at him while caressing his face. Not the father-daughter picture you’ll usually see.

3. A really unlikely pair.

ABC News

His long history as a public figure has resulted in Trump making friends with many random celebrities. One such friend was the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. They met in 1988 before Jackson performed a benefit concert at Madison Square Garden. Trump has been a staunch defender of Jackson during his most controversial years, which makes sense when you compare Trump’s own problematic past.

4. This photo oozes bad vibes.

Hollywoodlife.com

Trump’s time as the host of “Apprentice” and “Celebrity Apprentice” also made for strange bedfellows. Gene Simmons, Dennis Rodman and Snooki are just a few candidates the show saw. Former Sandra Bullock spouse, Jesse James also appeared on the show, which led to this cursed image. It should be mentioned that James was exposed for dressing as Adolf Hitler and collecting Nazi paraphernalia while Trump has been extraordinarly sympathetic towards Neo-Nazis and White Nationalists.

5. A photo almost as chaotic as the Trump White House.

TheWrap.com

Speaking of “Celebrity Apprentice,” the show was a straight up circus. Considering who the ringleader was, it’s not at all surprising. This promotional picture from 2014’s 14th season of the reality show paints a chaotic scene with Trump un-photogeniclly shouting his catchphrase in the center.

6. Just hanging out with a giant T; nothing weird to see here.

Cheatsheet.com

To put it lightly, Trump is obviously vain. He puts his name on everything he can and erroneously claims that it’s the best, most luxurious and most elite in the world. This 1996 photo of Trump leaning against a giant T might be the most normal picture on this list.

7. This picture gave us nightmares.

Twitter / @e_monkman

Trump has been quoted as saying that his love of fast food comes from the clean conditions the franchises must maintain. Obviously he’s never worked for a fast food chain but he has starred in a few of their commercials. Which is where this extremely haunted picture of him and Grimace from Mickey D’s. We’ll never look at this friendly purple guy the same way again.

8. Get a load of the ego on this guy.

TVSeriesFinale.com

Season 14 of “Celebrity Apprentice” seems to have been a banner year for the reality TV show. In another promo pic for the show, Trump plays a conductor of the Apprentice candidates choir. We know how much he likes to be in charge but he’s no better at being a maestro than he is a president.

9. Just a casual photo courtesy of The New Yorker.

The New Yorker

Since he started his campaign for president, Trump has become increasingly anti-media. However, this is very different than his previous relationship with news publications. Before his presidential run, he never turned down the opportunity to be featured on TV or in print. In 1997, a feature in “The New Yorker” of the future president came with this photograph. In it, Trump — dressed in a suit and with hands in pockets — causally hops on a golf course. Totally normal stuff.

10. The man sure does love a cameo.

The New York Times

You might not know this, but there’s a reason Trump was in do many movies and TV shows during the 90s. It’s not because he’s a good actor but because he negotiated cameos in any piece of media that filmed in one of his properties. This is how we get this bizarre picture of Trump and the flashy girl from Flushing.

11. Greetings from Scotland.

The Atlantic

Golf is one of those sports that is associated with wealth and Trump likes to think of himself as a great golfer. There’s no proof behind his belief but he has played on many around the world. Which brings us to this strange photo of him flanked by two bagpipers in the Scottish countryside. There’s no telling what’s so interesting on the ground, though.

12. Not sure what’s going on here but yikes.

TIME

One victim of Trump’s famous Twitter temper tantrums is the television comedy show “Saturday Night Live.” It’s pretty ironic when you remember that Trump hosted the series twice. During his 2015 hosting gig, he played himself in a sketch about the fictional restuarant Donald Trump’s House of Wings. This is a fictional commercial but could easily be real given all his failed business ventures.

13. An improvement on his usual look.

ScreenRant.com

His stint hosting “SNL” in 2015 was a ploy to make him seem relatable and good natured. This included a promo commercial with that week’s musical guest, Sia. In the promo, Trump sports a Sia-like two-toned wig and is joined by Kate McKinnon. Despite this promo, we are now very aware that Trump is definitely not relatable or friendly in the least.

14. Trump family photo.

IMBd

Trump loves a photo-op, no matter how weird or irrelevant it is. This photo is def both weird and irrelevant. During a 2006 recruiting search for “The Apprentice,” Trump stopped by Universal Studios Hollywood for some strange reason. That appearance led to a picture of him with Eric and Don, Jr. — we mean, Frankenstein’s Monster and a zombie.

15. Don’t show up with these at the next asado.

Mother Jones

As we mentioned before, Trump has had several failed business attempts; which is weird for someone regarded as a business mogul. One such failure was his Trump Steaks. Though promoted as “the world’s greatest steaks,” reviews for the cuts of meat were extremely bad. Jerry Levin, the CEO of Sharper Image where the products were first carried said they “literally sold almost no steaks.” Color us not surprised.

16. Not a good look.

ABC News

Rudy Giuliani and Trump have been friends for a long time. Years before Giuliani became his lawyer, he made New York accessible to future president’s construction needs. That’s how this picture was made possible but it doesn’t explain why we’ve been forced to see it.

17. Disturbing on so many levels.

Twitter / @missannabiller

As we said, the relationship between Trump and his daughter, Ivanka, is pretty… different. We easily could have loaded this list with pictures of them but we could only stomach two. We don’t know if it’s his possessive arm around her, the weird look he’s giving the camera or because she’s practically in his lap while they sit on the bed, but this picture bothers us in a very real way.

18. We’re still waiting on those tax returns.

Twitter / @timepictures

Since he claims to be so rich, a picture of Trump with armfuls of cash shouldn’t be very weird. Actually, it is pretty weird when you take into account that it’s not his money. You know the old Trump motto: why use your own cash when you can play with someone else’s.

19. There’s something eerie about this photo.

VICE

Not sure if it’s the focal length of this photo, the weird backlighting or the dead eyes, but this picture is haunting. Taken for the opening of his Taj Mahal Casino, maybe this picture was an omen. After all, the casino closed in 2016 and only sold for 4 cents on the dollar that Trump spent on it.

20. Finally, this work of…uh…art?

Twitter / @Politics1com

Remember what we said about Trump being vain and egotistical? Yeah, here’s a portrait that proves the point for us. Painted by Ralph Wolfe Cowan, this portrait is titled “The Visionary” and is almost as complimentary of Trump as he is himself. It currently resides in Trump’s residence of Mar-a-Lago because of course, it does.
