'Families of The Mafia' finale leaves fans craving for Season 2, here's what we can expect if show returns
MTV-backed 'Families of The Mafia' Season 1 aired its final episode on May 7, Thursday. Even though the makers tried to tie up all the loose ends and give the cast some closure, a lot of unfinished business was left over.
Billy O'Toole's sudden death left the family shaken but not stirred. However, the passing of a loved one always has its repercussions — emotional, financial and social. Billy's ex-wife, Jess Clare, has been taking care of their kids, Joe and Taylor, but with the father gone, it may have implications on their future.
We also don't know what Jess' future holds and whether or not she gets together with the man she was shown to be dating in Season 1. Life after Billy, Jess' future and how both of these aspects impact Joe and Taylor could make for a strong story arc in Season 2.
Karina Seabrook's relationship with Paulie Fusco is in deep waters and if the show was to return for another season, the focus could be on how she convinces her mother, Karen Gravano, and grandfather, Sammy Gravano, to let her live her life and that Paulie is right for her.
Because, in the finale episode, Karina defends Paulie while Karen and Sammy heap accusations on him. She was also quick to let them know that she appreciates their inputs but only she can decide what's coming next in her life.
As the curtains closed on 'Families of The Mafia,' Dennie Augustine had an unsettling experience. The girl is known for her chirpy, sunny demeanor, but all that positivity was reduced to tears when her missing-in-action father used harsh words for her, which was indicative of the fact that he doesn't want her in his life.
For Dennie, Season 2 could pick up from where it left. It's a lot to process and therefore, the spotlight could be on Dennie coping with the unnerving episode. Dennie's father had abandoned her when she was little.
Also, they could show more of Sammy, who has only made an appearance when his family was shown to be in trouble. His Arizona mansion is lavish and much-talked-about and therefore, it would make for some great set experience if the production unit were to shoot there.
In a nutshell, the stories of the mafia families aren't over yet. It's only a matter of time before they return to the TV screens. Meanwhile, fans cannot stop raving about how good the show has been and have even demanded a Season 2.
