Cristela Season 1 Episode 14 Review: Marriage, Counselor

at .  Updated at . Comments

Looks like Cristela can add marriage counselor to her impressive resume! 

Cristela Season 1 Episode 14 found Cristela helping not one, but two married couples who'd lost their way. With Roseanne back as Trent's estranged wife, the two looked to end their marriage once and for all, but were they throwing in the towel too soon?

Cristela sure thought so! When Trent tasked her with getting Veronica to sign a pre-nup, I was just as confused as she was. Who gets someone to sign a pre-nup right before they're about to get divorced? And who would actually sign that?

Veronica is a smart lady and she caught on to Trent's plan rather quickly. But when she talked to Cristela, it was pretty clear that her feelings for Trent weren't exactly gone. 

Cristela: I am saving your marriage because I believe in til death do us part.
Veronica: Well I could kill him if that'd make it easier for you.

When Cristela has an idea, she jumps on it and that's a major part of her charm. She saw Veronica clinging on to that small chance that maybe her and Trent were meant to be and that was enough for Cristela to want to bring them back together. 

I initially thought Trent was going to be completely against it, but it turns out he holds a very special place in his heart for Veronica. Watching Cristela mediate a talk between the two of them was great and it was nice to hear them both open up a little. They're always spewing venom at one another and it reminded me of what kids used to say when I was little; the meaner he is to you, the more he likes you. 

This may not be 100% accurate in this case, but there is a lot of love between the two of them, although a traditional marriage may not be in the cards for them. Instead, they're going to continue spending their time apart and come together for the occasional booty call.

Leave it to Maddie to drop this wise piece of knowledge on Cristela.

Cristela, a good marriage is what's best for the people in it, ya know? If being together means always being apart, well then sometimes it's just nice knowing that there's someone out there that's connected to you. That you're not alone.

Well said! Maybe those two crazy kids will make it after all!

Elsewhere, Daniela found out that a very important part of her history with Felix was built on a lie. I really don't fault Felix for not divulging that he was the dumpee the night he met Daniela and not the dumper. At the end of the day, they met, fell in love and have created a really beautiful life for themselves. 

So Felix didn't exactly pick her over someone else in the way she thought. He did pick her in the way that truly does matter and I'm in agreement with Cristela...

Felix: Cristela, what are you doing?
Cristela: Nothing. You know you've ruined marriage for me, because I'm not willing to settle for anything less than what you guys have.

What did you guys think of "Marriage, Counselor"? Are you happy Trent and Veronica decided to stay married? Would you have been mad at Felix for lying? Where do you think Alberto is hiding?

Leave me a comment and remember you can watch Cristela online anytime you'd like!

NOTE: Cristela Season 1 Episode 15 titled "Gifted and Talented" will air February 25th!
