Fine To Leave: Jesse Swanson
I really like Jesse. His unrepentant optimism and endless array of goofy jokes are the perfect counterpoint to Beca’s mopey nonsense, but it’s really hard for a girl in her late teens/ early twenties to grow as a movie character with a stable, long-term boyfriend. There has to be some kind of conflict, and considering much of the first movie was spent with him trying to win her over, I highly doubt Banks and company are going to want to travel along that same route again.

So, as much as it pains me to say it, Jesse may have to get kicked to the curb in the interest of the larger film. Or he may have to be comfortable accepting a far smaller role, one in which he isn’t the single biggest influence on Beca’s personality. In a perfect world, there would be enough time to follow a boy’s and a girl’s a capella group, but this franchise has always been and will always be primarily focused on the ladies.
