After leaving us on a big cliffhanger at the end of season two, Netflix & # 39; s On my pad has a lot to explain. Even with the latest trailer for Chapter 3, we are desperate for answers. In the clip we see the Core Four – Monse Finnie (Sierra Capri), Cesar Diaz (Diego Tinoco), Ruby Martinez (Jason Genao) and Jamal Turner (Brett Gray) – and the honorary member Jasmine Flores (Jessica Marie Garcia) on a new one Mission after being kidnapped by Cuchillos, the leader of the Santos gang.
Apparently Lil & # 39; Ricky and Cuchillos asked the group to track him down – or else. Of course things don't go as planned and our favorite investigators are taken on a wild ride. Will you find Lil & # 39; Ricky? Will they maintain their close friendship? Will the third season be as emotional as the second? Will they ever do homework regularly ?! We have so many questions before the show goes live on March 11th. Fortunately, the team of five spoke to POPSUGAR about what to expect in the upcoming episodes.
POPSUGAR: First of all, congratulations on season three! What was it like for you to come back for more adventures?
Genao: I was excited after reading the script and knew I would have more fun than in season two because this season was so dramatic for me. So I was more excited to know that it would be like season one again in terms of the fun times.
Gray: I was also very excited. So much happens to him for my character that it's something of his own story. This time I was excited to have more scenes with Ruby. We can do things by the pool, and we return to our antics from season one and what those relationships were like before they went under.
Tinoco: For me, I was happy to see that Cesar is all about positivity and exploring his relationship with Monse and other people in his life.
Capri: Yes, I like relationships between characters to develop as they try to find out more about Lil & Ricky. It still happens every season, but I think this season is more than ever.
"Whatever people think will not happen." – Brett Gray
Garcia: I'm just very excited that our fans see that Jasmine is a little more part of the group. We have great fans who are out to be friends and that means everything to me.
PS: Jessica, we've really seen Jasmine grow and develop as a person over the past couple of seasons. She is actually one of my favorite characters. What was the most exciting part of portraying their development?
Garcia: First of all, your taste is impeccable. I really appreciate that. I am always grateful because (the authors) have not decided that she will only be a minor character. They let me show her these different layers. If you don't know jasmine, you are most likely the jasmine of your group of friends and you have dealt with situations that can harden you. You built a wall and use comedy, self-irony, or your sexuality to stop someone from seeing your real self. For my character, this comes from a life in which I didn't feel good enough or need to be her father's caregiver. It is actually very deep and takes you to a vulnerable place. I am happy to show the audience this development. Jasmine has a lot of wisdom and we'll see more of it in season three.
PS: For you, Sierra, which aspects of Monse & # 39; s life were the most interesting for you in season three?
Capri: She rides an emotional roller coaster every season, but this one is special because she has a friend to lean on, and that's Jasmine. The loss of her former friend affected her relationship with the other men and the way she identified with them. But fans will be really happy to see a lot more of Monse and Jasmine this season. I'm most looking forward to that.
PS: What do Jasmine and Monse bring apart, what makes their bond so special?
Capri: Monse tends to rethink and Jasmine allows her to walk the river, let go, drop her hair and live in the moment. Monse is always so concerned about what's going to happen next or what's going on around her, and she doesn't really enjoy being a child.
"Nothing is forbidden. Everything you thought about our show can change immediately." – Jessica Marie Garcia
Garcia: In a way, for Jasmine, Monse gives her a home – a friend. I don't think Jasmine has ever had a girlfriend before, but now she has someone she has a sisterly relationship with. Sierra and I have been fighting for this since day one. We wanted there to be more female power. Their relationship is very special and I think a lot of girls will see how their friendships are reflected in ours.
PS: I love that you worked for it. Well, Brett, we all know that Jamal loves adventure and a good secret. The wheels are always turning. What is his trip to season three like?
Gray: Well, Jamal is actually finding love this season. He has a love interest and I think that's the only limit he hasn't really explored yet. He gets his money's worth and recognizes its value, not only in terms of friendship and what he does, but also in terms of who he is as a young man and where he wants to go in his love life. Also, people will see that he wants to take responsibility for how the group deals with situations because they always overlook him. He will learn a lot about trust.
PS: What about Cesar? What can he expect, Diego?
Tinoco: He's pretty optimistic this season. He is still the same hopeful child with a good heart who just wants a better life, wants to be with Monse, hang out with his friends and go to school. But he definitely has a lot more on his plate than in seasons one and two, and he tackles some pretty deep obstacles while figuring out his life. I was shocked by the end of season three. I never saw it coming – not a bit. I was surprised and frankly I didn't want to film it because it was so heartbreaking. But I trust the writers.
PS: You always leave us on a crazy cliffhanger at the end of a season. People's feelings will be everywhere. Jason, please tell me Ruby will be fine, at least. He really went through it in season two.
"The set is so energetic and fun … We are like a family." – Jason Genao
Genao: Season three is not as emotional for him as season two. Ruby returns to this Ruby-like topic: "I have to take care of everything and make sure that everything is done by me, because that's the only way to get it right." He also likes the girls again. In season two, he gave it all up because he had lost the love of his life. But of course there are still these emotional scenes that I have to open up. Fortunately, the set is so energetic and fun that I can make these scenes and then quickly get into a headspace where I can be in a funny scene with Jasmine. We are like family.
PS: Why should fans be particularly excited to click the "Play" button when season three hits Netflix?
Gray: Whatever people think it will happen is not the way it happens. Fans will love it because what happens makes so much sense, even though it's not what you expect.
Garcia: Nothing is forbidden. Everything you thought about our show can change immediately. Our writers were really great at keeping you busy and not taking any relationship, situation or figure for granted.
Genao: I would say it's the joy of season one combined with the heartache and drama of season two.
Tinoco: This is the best season so far. There are explosions, there are sex, kisses, people who are on fire. The stakes have never been higher. So much is at stake, including our lives.
