What I would like to happen between now and the ending:
Lucy and Augustus have a very brief fling, until they realize it won't work, and they'll just be friends. Sue's play ends up being a complete fiasco as Lucy and Mike have a tremendous, unscripted fight onstage, with Sandy right there in the audience. The love triangle falls apart when Sandy breaks up with him. None of them end up with each other. Jasmine breaks up with Paulo for some reason and another. Paulo ultimately ends up with Lucy, but has a one-night stand with Tess just before she leaves for college (or wherever she'll go after she graduates). Tess leaves in a heartfelt farewell, promising to come and visit every summer and/or winter holiday. Jasmine ends up with someone else from the main cast. Abbey finds his mother. He lashes out at Daisy one day, much like his father would, and they break up. Daisy either finds solace in either Mike or Augustus. Abbey, in turn, keeps going to therapy, and Daisy eventually forgives him. Abbey and Tess end up forming infrequent feelings for each other during her visits.
What a scene near the ending should be:
Augustus gives Alejandro all the info he's collected over the years. He schedules all of them to meet up in an alleyway or behind some old buildings or something somewhere, where Alejandro and his goons bumrush them, just like in Confrontation. This is more of an idea for a fanfic, though it could work as a great climax to the ending of BCB, but I'd almost like for them to beat a male character up senseless until he's nearly unconscious, then throw him into a nearby body of water, where they then release Lucy to go save that person and force her to confront her fear of water. I'd prefer that male character to be Paulo, since it would mirror the time when he saved both her and Mike from drowning in that river when they were kids. Psychological torture for Lucy and a painful memory for Paulo, Mike, Sue, and David. It also make sense for Alejandro to exploit Paulo's fear of dogs' barking while they're beating him up, just to ensure that his spirit his completely broken, thus making him simply unable to save himself from drowning and forcing Lucy to do it. Of course, Alejandro doesn't have a huge grudge on Paulo. I guess that Mike could be the one beaten senseless instead of Paulo, if Taeshi chooses to have the comic end with LucyxMike, but if Alejandro had more of a grudge on Lucy, then it'd make more sense for him to hurt the person currently closest to her (because I don't think things between Lucy and Mike would still be resolved by this point).
All of that's just speculation, but I think it'd be really interesting and intense. There needs to be at least something with Alejandro at the end. Maybe a character could even end up being killed? I don't know.
