Thanks for all the comments, everyone! It really helps with the sad feelings about the novela ending/how it ended to read everyone's thoughts.
Lorr, thank you for telling us about the novel. Very interesting indeed that Rafael was not in the book and she goes off with the Pablo character.
I started this novela very late so I was not watching while Pablo was on- I remember being very surprised that he died so early on, especially since he was third in the credits up til the end- It was kinda funny watching those credits everyday because anyone new just tuning in would think the great love story of the novela was Flor & Pablo since Pablo is all over those credits lol!
I didn't realize Pablo was so unpopular. It's interesting if they had originally planned to have Flor end up with him and due to fan opinion they decided to just ship JLR to another novela and then tried Flor with Sacramento, but obviously the amazing chemistry was with Tony/Rafa.
Maybe they did make Abel Rafa & Zahra's son to make Rafa even more redeemable, which I suppose they succeeded at. Too bad he was so awful and we had to withstand all his scenes. And that Rafa had to die :(
Tony Dalton is amazing, I agree with everyone. I started watching because I heard he had a big part in this. I'm still surprised he did a novela again, just because his last one was years ago, and don't expect him to do another one anytime soon- unless Telemundo convinces him to do another novela with Monica ;) But from what I've read he's really busy with acting/plays/writing/producing/etc.
For anyone looking for other Tony projects check out his imdb page- http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0198366/
And Newcomer- I've personally seen him in a few things and he never disappoints. The first thing I ever saw him in was "Ramona" (which is a wonderful novela btw) where he had a small part (and long blond hair!) and even back then he caught my attention.
I believe the last novela he did before this was "Rebelde" which was like 6 years ago. He had a pretty substantial villain role (though that novela is not that good lol).
I would love to see him in another novela like Flor, and Monica as well. I have a feeling we'll see her again on Telemundo, I'd be surprised if they didn't snatch her up and gave her a contract.
I haven't been able to rewatch the finale yet, I don't want to cry! The only part I brought myself to rewatch was the last scene with Flor & Rafa's vision and that alone wrecked me.
