First bold- I agree we don't know what would have happened if Frank had stayed. I'm sure Ali and Roberto (and their fans) would like to think that nothing would have changed but we don't really know if she would have taken that leap of faith with Roberto at the end if her safe choice, Frank, was still in the picture. It really doesn't matter now though; whatever protective force field that got her away from Jake also protected her from Frank and took her straight to the right guy.

Second bold- I think her insecurities will be kept in check by Roberto's natural desire to nurture her. It's not a burden for him when she gets needy and whiny, he WANTS to take care of her. Just look at their progression of helicopter rides this season. The first one, she's trying to throw herself out of the doors in mid-air pretty much to get his maximum attention and affection going. She's mostly fine in Tahiti and then just settles in his arms quietly with absolutely no drama when going to Catalina. She knows he's going to be affectionate with her anyway so no need to act like she's a few fries short of a happy meal.
