Grand Hotel finished Season 1 with a huge bang. The show garnered a dedicated following throughout the 13 episodes that aired on ABC during the summer season. While everyone waits to find out if Season 2 will be on the way, there was a cliffhanger that makes it necessary.
As Grand Hotel unfolded, assumptions were made. All of that was blown to bits when the season finale aired. Who killed Sky (Arielle Kebbel) was the biggest mystery, and while it appeared that maybe Santiago (Demian Bichir) or Mateo (Shalim Ortiz) had her killed, that is not at all what happened.
Finding out that Jason (Chris Warren) was Santiago’s son was shocking. His affair with Mrs. P (Wendy Raquel Robinson) was also something no one saw coming. Of course, it looked like she may have killed Sky because she had found the suicide note left by Beatriz (Eva Longoria Baston) in Gigi’s (Roselyn Sanchez) safe. Mr. P (John Marshall Jones) was the one who killed her and he had known all along that Jason wasn’t his biological son.
There are so many questions that still need answers and storylines to finish out. As the Grand Hotel season finale was airing, it was trending on Twitter. Viewers want to see more of the show and ABC revealed it wouldn’t announce a decision either way until the show finished airing Season 1.
Who shot Santiago would be enough to carry a new season. Felix (Adrian Pasdar) may have back in Miami and the one who took a shot at him. After all, Carolina (Feliz Ramirez) did call to tell her daddy and she and Yoli (Justina Adorno) would get an inheritance if Santiago were to die. There is also the possibility that Mateo went to shoot Santiago as well. After getting out of bed, he told Ingrid (Anne Winters) that he was leaving. Could it have been to shoot his former boss? Remember, he did shoot Teresa (Katey Sagal).
In addition to sharing their support all over social media, Grand Hotel fans have also started a petition to have the show renewed. At the time of writing this, the petition currently has 625 signatures.
Whether ABC renews Grand Hotel remains to be seen but there is a very dedicated fan base hoping that the show will continue, especially after the first season finale. With the caliber of the cast on the show, it has so much more potential that has yet to be tapped into.
