On My Block season 2, episode 5 recap: Chapter Fifteen


On My Block has put Ruby through the wringer, and it’s finally catching up to him.

On My Block is showing Ruby’s gradual mental downfall, and it’s a shame that it’s never quite addressed in the manner it should be. There are many obstacles that could get in the way of seeking help, but it doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t have been mentioned. It would have been a great opportunity to address it, but alas, it never happens.

Jamal learns that Abuelita is not doing so great, and her arthritis is really starting to act up. Considering he’s the only one who knows about it, he’s eager to help her get the help she needs. The rest of her family is preoccupied with their own lives, and ever since Jamal has been working closely with Abuelita, he’s formed a sincere bond with her.

But she refuses to go to the doctor, so he takes her to a healer named Rosario instead. Abuelita and Rosario have some interesting history due to the fact that Rosario gave her a bad batch of marijuana back in the day. Nonetheless, Abuelita believes in Rosario’s power and soon learns that the bad luck is because something new has entered her life–aka Jamal’s money. You can imagine how Jamal is feeling at that moment.
