Man, Mary Jane! What haven't we experienced with and through her?! We sure have come a long way and every bit of pain, humiliation, joy, disappointment she felt through the years, we felt with her. But I'm tired now.
It's been a long road till Season 4. Do you remember when we were Team Andre or Team David?
Before there was Ghost, there was Andre and boy was he something!!! My heart though, was with David and I SO wanted him and Mary Jane to work out. I feel like he's the one that got away.
Not the one that got hosed away hehehe like Andre.
I'm really tired just thinking of MJ's history... Do you remember Sheldon?
That damn selfish Sheldon? We all liked him at first coz he came wrapped in sheep skin but then he dropped the “Given your history with men, you know I’ll be the best offer you’ll get.” line at MJ. The cheek!
After making a fuss about her getting too comfortable in his house, asking how she got his house's security code lol (but MJ though), and then talking about how he doesn't believe in cohabiting bathong, I'm getting upset just remembering this guy.
Oh my word, and then there was Lisa and that confession to David that MJ overhead causing her to crash her car.
My word, and that lead to this - how can we forget the quickest recovery on earth! The one that was so bad it left her with zero scars on her face?? Miracles I tell you.
And Lisa committing suicide , David having a baby with someone else...
David really hurt me... Every season I waited for him to come back but clearly he moved on.
I will never forget this scene at the end of season 2, after discovering MJ had stolen his sperm coz she so desperately wanted a baby:
We also had Cutty Buddy at some point during the show, I just couldn't understand why MJ picked that GandaGanda of a guy , he scared me.
Then MJ experimented with white men and stopped at the part where she told dude she actually likes Black Men... I remember cringing at that scene. There have been many moments in the show where I felt MJ was extra and unnecessarily rude but hey, I still love her. Frustration manifests in many ways, I guess.
Season 3 was probably one of the best for those who are into shows that highlight social issues but for me it was the worst - thanks to this lady's character:
There are shows one watches for Comrade/Amandla vibes and BMJ wasn't that show for me so I really got frustrated at this lady's scenes and her woke monologues. I wanted to watch MJ and her relationship issues. At some point even her family drama was featuring more than her life, the whole season 3 felt disjointed for me.
Season 4 though, really more than made up for a lot of things! I got to see the real MJ again. We got introduced to Lee... he was so not MJ's type but he provided her the stability and attention she needed at that time. Even though I was happy with this for about two minutes, I quickly got bored with this relationship and episode after episode I kept waiting for them to break up.
I felt like MJ was settling and really disliked that. I know it's weird, that in all these seasons and episodes we wanted her to find love but when she eventually found it, I didn't want it because it wasn't packaged in the David/Andre/Sheldon type of package I thought suited her. Lee really made the show boring, let's be honest, or maybe I just wasn't ready to watch her become his wife.
And then entered King Justin in our lives! *hearts*
Yhuuu Thixo! Lawd we thank you for your creations... Amen!
Oh how we hated him when he first got on to the show. I know a lot of people still did not trust him when he started dating MJ but I remained hopeful because he simply ticked all my boxes. With all the drama and everything that happened between them, it ended here... right here with this beautiful, special moment:
Granted, it's a beautiful moment that could be ruined by the fact that MJ had just returned from the Dr where she was getting implanted with two embryos.. sigh. Meaning she could be pregnant with a sperm donor's baby, which could in turn ruin things with Justin. This is exactly why I don't want the show to continue past this point! Is anyone with me??
We have seen enough disappointments, enough suffering, enough heartbreaks, I just want MJ to be happy now. Sure life doesn't always work out that way but it's TV after all, we need a happy ending and I know for a fact there is no way a new season will give us Justin and MJ living happily ever after. Not with Justin accepting this child, (if MJ falls pregnant) there will have to be drama and I don't know about you folks but I am tired of MJ drama. More of this, it will now turn into a soapie and I'm worried about all these beautiful Season 4 moments with Justin getting ruined, wiped out or forgotten hle!
I know it's taken me a while to get to my point but I feel like this ending would be the perfect cliff hanger to end the show. We would be left wondering if MJ accepts Justin's marriage proposal, whether she falls pregnant, how he reacts to the pregnancy... and I don't think it's a bad thing to leave us hanging. What more can MJ do in Season 5,6,7,8.9 that she hasn't done already? I hope the season 4 finale is the last we've seen of Being Mary Jane.
I'd really miss Kara though. What a selfless human! She and Orlando made the cutest, sweetest couple! Let's also leave that relationship at this happy point please.
I think I've said a mouthful, though I haven't even touched on MJ's family drama. A lot has happened and I think the show's also had a good run, let's take a bow now.
Would love to hear your thoughts as well please? What are your thoughts on BMJ? You want more? Why?
