Good Trouble Season 5, Part 1 Ending Explained:

When Mariana returns to her room in the final moments of Good Trouble Season 5 part 1, she finds Silas waiting for her, completely taken by surprise. The scenario creates a gloomy tone for the upcoming portion of the season and makes Mariana fear for her safety due to Silas’s disturbing past and menacing presence.

At the beginning of the season, the shocking incident occurred when Evan was shot while attempting to protect Mariana at the Farm. Even though he pulled through, Evan stayed in a coma and would wake up forgetting Mariana. Evan shows no indications of remembering his history with Mariana as he goes back to work at Speckulate in the season finale. Mariana, played by Cierra Ramirez, seems to have been trying to escape the fact that Evan might never regain his memories.

Feeling guilty for Evan’s predicament, Mariana clings to optimism and is resolute in her mission to assist him at Speckulate. Mariana hopes that Evan will recall their shared past in the future, but Cierra Ramirez suggests that Mariana is afraid to face the reality that Evan may never remember anything. The mental and emotional toll on Mariana grows as the season goes on, and we see her struggle to accept the possibility that Evan’s memory may never come back.

Mariana and Joaquin almost kiss in a pivotal scene, but they don’t actually do it. After this, Mariana bolts and returns to the Coterie in a flash. The unanticipated turns in Mariana’s life have left her in a condition of disarray, as Cierra Ramirez elucidates. For Mariana, the kiss’s rejection or avoidance is the final straw, compounding her feelings of rejection and helplessness.

The revelation of Silas in Mariana’s room and the unresolved dynamics in her personal life set the stage for the upcoming episodes, promising more challenges and emotional turmoil for Mariana in the continuation of Good Trouble Season 5.

Will Good Trouble return for Season 6?

Good Trouble will not return for season 6. Freeform executives, spearheaded by Simran Sethi, the Executive VP of Programming and Content Strategy, expressed interest in reviving both Good Trouble and Cruel Summer. However, the decision to proceed was hindered by the shows’ ratings, which failed to substantiate the associated expenses. This became particularly pertinent as Disney aimed to trim costs by an additional $2 billion. Additionally, given that a significant portion of the audience consumes the network’s content on Hulu, the financial feasibility of the revival was further called into question.

Where to watch Good Trouble?

You can watch Good Trouble on Freeform, Hulu, or on Fubo TV.
