The very famous Netflix’s original series, Pretty Smart is all about Chelsea reconnecting with her sister, Claire and the friendships and bonds that all come from the show’s that ensemble living together. Although there are many romantic subplots in the series, one problem with this season that came was trying to create a substantial love triangle in its finale, “I Mean Just Watch:.

The series Pretty Smart prepared Chelsea and Grant to be interested in each other romantically early. Their friendship not only grows through each episode and with Grant and Chelsea that brings at home and work. It is not surprising that their feelings head in a romantic direction that brings a new angle to the story.

Yet, the problem with the cliffhanger that has very much less to do with their romance and more will come Claire’s declaration of still having many feelings for Grant. Pretty Smart’s decision to tease a love triangle for the future is a way to get viewers that are excited for what may come next. However, there is no build-up to this new plot twist.

If we see it from Grant’s perspective it could have made sense considering his feelings on Claire for plenty of the season. However, there is somewhere along the way those feelings shifted onto Chelsea. When Claire can also get back together with Grant that she turns him down and later she says she is now relieved going on a date with someone else.

It also never came across that Claire even subconsciously had feelings for Grant that she was in denial about. Instead, Claire had treated Grant no differently than any of her platonic friends. Instead of Claire’s romantic feelings for Grant seem to be based on the nostalgia for an old shirt that the due barely spends any one time together throughout their first season.

Pretty Smart also remember to include some of the significant factors about how a relationship with Grant could affect Chelsea’s growing bond with Claire. One of the main reasons Chelsea is hesitant to start a relationship with her sister’s ex-boyfriend. This very conflict haunts Chelsea in the entire season as she struggles with how to handle her and wishes to keep a good dynamic relationship with her sister.

But overall, the Pretty Smart series managed to set up a dramatic and interesting conclusion. All the events that lead up to it do not quite justify the possibility of the love triangle.
