Enamor谩ndome de Ram贸n, #10, Aug. 21, 2017: The Breathless and the Beaten

Here is the recap, courtesy of RGVChick :)

[Previously: After Ram贸n arrives, he listens as Fabiola tells Juana that she is going to prove to everyone how responsible she can be. Fit to be tied, Ram贸n calls her on it and asks for how long鈥ust long enough for his mother to turn over the million pesos? When Fabiola questions what鈥檚 wrong with him, Ram贸n reveals that he overheard her little plan to work just until she can convince Juana that she is worthy of handling the money.] Francisco chimes in and asks Ram贸n, 鈥淲ho do you think you are?鈥 to which Ram贸n replies, 鈥淛uana鈥檚 son! The one they want to fool so they can get the money!鈥 Juana asks Fabiola to confirm what Ram贸n stated; and when Fabiola doesn鈥檛 respond, she looks questioningly at Andrea, then Fabiola. Juana takes Fabiola into the kitchen so they can talk privately. While they鈥檙e in the kitchen, Ram贸n and Francisco get into it. Francisco doesn鈥檛 want Ram贸n to defy his girlfriend, but Ram贸n refuses to allow anyone to mess with his mother鈥r Francisco will truly know who Ram贸n is.

Enamor谩ndome de Ramon, Cap铆tulo 9; Friday, August 18, 2017: Fabiola and Ram贸n get to work together!

We left off yesterday with Fabiola announcing to Ram贸n that she is the owner and wants to know what he is doing there. Ram贸n is a bit confused and turns to Dalia and says, 鈥淲hy didn鈥檛 you tell me this?鈥 So Fabiola goes on to explain that since her father passed away, she is taking his place. As she is throwing her weight around, her uncle Antonio comes up and wants to know what is going on.
Dalia explains that she was talking to Ram贸n about the mechanic job there when Fabiola so rudely interrupted and said that she was the new boss. Antonio turns to Fabiola and Fabi tries to explain that her father left his half of the business to her and Andrea. Antonio says, 鈥淣o one is saying anything to the contrary. But first we need to discuss this.鈥 He takes her aside so they can talk elsewhere. Ram贸n then turns to Dalia and says that maybe he can find work somewhere else, but she pleads with him to wait and find out what Antonio has to say first. Obviously no one seems to like it how Fabiola just muscled her way into the situation without notice.

La candidata Friday 8/18/17 Cap铆tulo 49: An Attempt is Made on Emiliano's Life--OR--When Does a Death Threat Become Just an "Expression"?

Outside of Regina's office--Lorena is leaving. Mario happens to see Lorena and asks Daniela what that woman was doing there. Daniela tells him she wanted to see Regina and adds that Lorena has no shame. In no time flat, Mario is on the phone to one of his goon-guards and tells him that Lorena is leaving the building. He wants her followed and wants to know about all of her movements.

At Regina's/Alonso's House--Alonso has awakened a beast in Regina with his threat. She is over the top and rightfully so. She did not know that he was capable of killing her. Alonso tries to write it off in his usual arrogant casual way by saying it was just an "expression". Regina is not buying it. She invites him to kill her right then and there. She is not afraid. A completely exasperated Alonso goes on about her scaring Emiliano with jail and how he would never survive a place like that. She needs to realize that. He is begging her. She asks if he is trying to convince her. Of course he is! Is he trying to improve things between them by threatening to kill her? She doesn't know what is happening to him.

Mauro's office--Sandoval, Regina's lawyer, is visiting with Mauro. The lawyer makes it clear that he will not be treated as "second class" to anyone. A pay-off won't do it. If Alonso makes him the minister of the Supreme Court of the land the day he takes office, he can count on his assistance. Mauro tells him that will be impossible. Well, it will also be impossible for Sandoval then to stop advising Regina.

La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo (LDVDEC) #71 (Part 2) 8.18.17: All Well's That Ends Well (Barely)...

At the risk of sounding too much like our dearly beloved Regia, I want to say a few words as this tale draws to a close, for some, myself included.

I want to thank Diana, Susanlynn and Kirby for getting this patio going over at Vino as I had no plans to watch Doble Vida but ended up doing so because of you three. It has been a fun ride and I loved how great the story and patio turned out to be, despite my initial reservations.

I also to thank Vivi, who provided the first recap for us. You are solely missed and hope you come back soon 馃槉.

Julie, RGVChick, and Adriana, thank you so much for your help recapping this novela and a big thank you to Julie, for recapping three to four nights in my absence. Anita, thank you as well for your guest recaps, they were wonderful. In case, some of you didn鈥檛 know, this was RGV鈥檚 first recapping duty and she knocked it out of the park, no? 馃槈 Adriana, you have your own little Paloma but you took the time during your busy schedule to help us out any way you could. Thank you.

And finally, thank you to the loyal commentors and followers in this patio. None of this would be possible (or as enjoyable) without you. I thank you all for your kind words, insightful comments and logical deductions (which was solely lacking in DV). See you in the next one! :D

Now, without further ado, Barfest Part 2 (aka El Grand Final!)

Weekend Discussion: Karmegeddon in the Capital: La Candidata

Throughout history there have been many career politicians since Roman times. Some become such because of a need to serve their people and others only for the power it gives them. They often visit the same sick need for power over the people in their private lives.

Those who abuse the trust of the people deserve the worst punishment available. The only problem is that sometimes it is difficult to determine what that is: Should sociopaths like these be executed, locked away, or is there a worse fate in our time? 聽I ask you all:

What do you think the writers have done to them and 鈥
If you could decide their fate, what would it be?
