when the verb before que expresses a WISH
or HOPE for someone or something else.

If one of those verbs is used before QUE, the
subjunctive must be used after que because it
expresses wish.
Usually, there are 2 DIFFERENT subjects in the
sentence: 1 before que and a different subject
after que.
If there is no que, there can’t be a subject
change and the infinitive is used.
