The beauty of this show is that they show different stories that will grab and reach different viewers in different ways. Doesn't hurt that that as superviewers, we tend to go back and re-play (courtesy of DVR) over and over again each segment with our own favorite guy!! (Guilty!!) This only helps us to reinforce what we believe we are seeing!
However, well sleuthed spoilers are yet another story! I "believe" I saw a ridiculously beautiful story with Roberto and Ali, but the faith I have that she chooses him comes more from the true spoilers this board has uncovered. To me, the only true untouched spoilers have been:
1. the twitter pic of Roberto - yes, curiously handed to us by someone from ABC, but the picture is what it is
2. the fact that Roberto is moving to CA - sure , you can make-up a hundred different excuses about why this career-driven, hard-working man has picked up and moved his career to CA unrelated to Ali, but the truth is, it is what it is! We were NOT meant to have this info!
3. don't even need to get started on the dog tags, safe house, no sign of Roberto, etc... - these are secondary and more subject to interpretation, I get it! I believe we will all be reminiscing next season about how we had true spoilers, but didn't listen to them! (ala Ed and his green mankini!!)
ITA, with your entire post. I saw a beautiful love story between Ali and Roberto
The Twitter pic and CA move convince me
