They bond over the deaths of their fathers and continuously outdo each other in the grand gesture department. Juliana makes Valentina clothes and Valentina is constantly trying to help Juliana pursue her dream of becoming a fashion designer all the while resisting the urge to buy an entire fashion school outright and name it after her new “friend.” It was sweet to watch how natural the progression of the story was, allowing both characters to be fully realized within the narrative before their romantic relationship really begins to be explored.
What Amar a Muerte was able to accomplish in one season of television with #Juliantina is something remarkable. It’s very rare to get a queer romantic storyline between two characters on a show that isn’t relegated to a short-term subplot and given a non-committal conclusion. Juliana and Valentina’s love story is strengthened by the fact that both characters are important to the over-arching plot of the show and arguably the reason the premise exists at all. What is Lady Death on Amar a Muerte, if she isn’t simply the biggest #Juliantina shipper of them all?
The story begins on the day of a mysterious solar eclipse when Leon Carvajal, a wealthy media mogul and father of Valentina Carvajal, is assassinated at his wedding reception. His soul is transmigrated into the body of a recently executed hitman in San Antonio, Texas named, El Chino Valdez, the father of Juliana Valdez. Leon, left to navigate the world in the body of El Chino, sets off on a journey back to Mexico City to reunite with his family and ends up having to escape the United States with Juliana and her mother Lupita. This, of course, is not an easy task since El Chino was an abusive father and husband and his estranged daughter and wife have good reason not to trust him. Eventually, Leon decides to part ways with Juliana and Lupita to make the journey alone. El Chino’s soul ends up in the body of Beltran, an anthropology professor in Mexico City and he must now deal with the fact that he is in the body of a man who has a wife, a young son, and respectable career. Inevitably, all of their paths end up crossing in Mexico City.
I saw a few people online comparing Juliana and Valentina’s storyline to that of Romeo and Juliet, but I didn’t see it that way. Although they are certainly in the eye of the storms around them, the development of their romance is anything but Shakespearean. For me, seeing Juliana and Valentina fall in love was like watching the tale of Cinderella playout from the point of view of Prince Charming. There is a point in the story where Valentina reminisces about the fact that Juliana could have been her prince in another life, but it is very much Valentina who is the prince in their current one.
There have been many stories I’ve seen in the past where one half of a queer relationship falters under scrutiny and either doesn’t speak up for how they feel or expresses shame for it. Juliana and Valentina standing up for themselves in situations where people are trying to directly diminish the love they have for each other sends an important message to the audience of the show and any young queer viewers who may be watching. No matter how bad life gets you should always stand up for yourself and the people you love.
