New Telenovela: El Color de la Pasion, September 6th Debut


Marcelo y Lucia, our pretty protagonists
(not to be confused with SantMarc y Ana Lucia from 3xAna)

Next Tuesday, September 6th, is the 2-hour debut of El Color de la Pasión (The Color of Passion) at 7:55pm EST. After sitting for two years on Univision’s shelf, it replaces Narcos, which has been recapped by Countx during its 2-week run, in the 10pm EST slot.  

So far, there seems to be lots of interest in watching this popular telenovela, and also some interest in recapping it from: Delilah, dy77, Anna Nabil, Anita, Jardinera, and Cathyx. I would also be interested in sharing a night with someone. If those listed are still interested, please email me and we can decide on a recapping schedule. If others are interested, please also email me. Gracias, amigas y amigos!

Sueño de Amor (SdA) US #116 (MEX #120, #121). Friday August 26, 2016. Señorito Confundido

Sorry, lady, but I'm too handsome to have to worry about making decisions!

At a glance

-- Ricardolt is very confundido (confused) and can’t decide between the two idiotic women that are debasing themselves to win him over. Poor perplexed little prince! How will he ever manage this stressful situation with only two neurons to rub together? 
-- The preparations for the rushed wedding of stepsiblings Pato and Luca are well underway. 
-- Ernesto preemptively ends his “relationship” with Esperanza.

A closer look 

Esperanza is visiting gravely-ill Ernesto and fawning over that drooling fool she says she is madly in love with. “A few days ago, Ricardolt hated me and now he loves me again! Well, with half his heart at least!” “That’s a big advance!, exclaims Ernesto sarcastically. He curtly tells her that he is tired and wishes to be alone, thank you very much.

Narcos Capitulo #4 August 24 2016 "Flame on"

[Some scenes were merged for easier reading]

NOTE: The next episodes will be mere discussion pages as I am worn out due to the new semester starting soon. I will recap the final episode though.

 The death of Rodrigo Lara gave Colombia a new edge of extradition support as one of the assailants confessed that Pablo put out the hit. Steve still blames himself for the death but Javier assures him that it was for the best as now they can go after these rat bastards. Pablo got indicted for Lara's death and got placed on the bounty list. Extradition could possibly make Pablo's life a living hell as U.S max prison doesn't have any privileges. Now Pablo had something to fear. Or does he? After a small fight between the Narcos Pablo proposes a new organization"The extraditables". But this time it wasn't a team effort but a man for himself. Gacha thought that he could stop the extradition by simply killing anyone who tried to stop him. The Ochoas build themselves quite a crafty logo("Better a grave in Colombia than a cell in the United States"). Carlos Lehder took it to the airwaves blaming the imperialistic America for everything. It was also the very first time judges had to wear masks during court. But not even that stopped Pablo from blowing up their cars.

Tres Veces Ana #84: An Inconvenient Truth--Or Why Would I Lie?


Viewerville is digesting the latest luscious tidbit to have dropped from Ana Leticia's lips.  News at 10....

  • Marcelo and Ramiro are at odds because Marc played him for a fool and betrayed his promise to let Ana Laura know first that her sister, Ana Lucia, is still alive.  He's upset thinking the Ana MiMi will end up telling the family and he thinks it's best they tell the family together before A MiMi opens her maw.  Marco knows better and says the truth is too inconvenient yet for her to tell anyone.

  • Ana Lucia is still acting cold to Soledad and wants the truth if she and Mama Sole are ever to speak to one another again.  "--What's in that jewelry box of yours, Mama?  What secrets are you hiding from me?"

Yago #60. Thursday August 25, 2016. Like A Wheel Within A Wheel

We need a fourth for the Mahjong tournament. You in?

At a glance 

-- Lucio frames Hernán for Selma’s murder but Katia whacks the toupeed Red Converse Killer before Camilo could get to him. It was death by fire extinguisher. 
-- Julia wants Abel to kill Camilo. 
-- The Three Compañeres (Yago, Abel and Sara) ask the fourth compañere (Lucio) to team up with them to destroy Camilo. Lucio is about to learn that Omar is still alive. 

A closer look 

Lucio is on the prowl, gun in hand. Selma is his unsuspecting prey. He ponders on the potential of love as a powerful but at times destructive weapon that can convert one into the worst version of oneself.

Tres Veces Ana - # 83

Sneaky's recap coming up later in the day. Until then, let's discuss - what an episode!

Sneaky's recap:

Diving straight in
Badd Ana looks like she wants to stamp and scream as Marcelo tricks Analu into kissing him again w/the promise that it will bring Santi back, but after the kiss he gloats that Santi is dead and will never come back, she helped him kill him. (yeah I know weird sentence, weird logic, weird everything) Analu sobs that she will never give up but is eventually convinced by cold as ice Marcelo that Santi is gone and he, Marcelo doesn’t want to see her ever again, as BadAna cries and screams into a towel in the bathroom and then frantically fixes her faces b/c  ‘ he can’t see her this way’

Narcos Capitulo #3 August 24 2016: Dreams come to an end

"This ain't gonna hurt a bit!"

[Some scenes were merged for easier reading]
In the last episode we have witnessed some cruel and unkind deaths. One of them was Connie's adored cat. Javier starts drilling Steve with questions. Did you have any contact outside of DEA? Do you have any affairs? After a short thought Steve remembers his sticky situation at the local airport. He had his passport scanned and sent directly to the bandits. Javier also points out that the cat is D.E.A property so there will be justice for the cat. (This is due to Kiki Cartagena, a D.E.A agent that was brutally tortured during his mission in Mexico]. Javier&Steve also meet Suarez. He is a local cop that plays both sides that only works for money so he get's bribed. The DEA later catches up to the two airport bandits. Royal karma ensues. Killing a D.E.A cat is a federal crime. One of the bandits spills up the identity of the cat killer: Poison.

Yago #59, Wednesday August 24, 2016: Party-Poopers

I hope you enjoyed the title, because that's where the fun ends.
(Official episode title: "Deadly Attack." That's not fun at all!)

- Fidel and Selma prepare to say goodbye to their home and friends by planning a going-away party.

- Lucio and Camilo set Sara up with a wedding planner to keep her distracted while they plan their totally nonviolent, lightning-fast, surgical strike on Fidel's place to get Julia.

- Julia tries to get Ximena to attend Fidel's going-away party. She is unsuccessful, but a follow-up visit from Yago changes Ximena's mind.

- Katia is allowed to make a supervised phone call to warn about an attack, but no one picks up the phone.

- At the party, Abel asks Julia to marry him, and she accepts.

- The nonviolent, lightning-fast, surgical strike on Fidel's place is a totally sloppy bloodbath from the get-go. It takes forever, and Selma is killed.

- Fidel finds Camilo crying over Selma's body. They struggle, and Camilo shoots Fidel. Julia sees her dead parents and is grabbed by Hernan.

Tres Veces Ana # 82 - Finally face-to-face with the three faced woman and a man with no face

Our ever scheming Ana Le figures it’s not very convenient for Santicelo in either of his incarnations to meet with Ev, especially in light of all this info she recently received on Ev’ involvement in all of her beeswax, so she asks Abue to exclude her marido from this conversation. Abue could go either way, as she reasons perhaps it could jolt Marcelo’s memory and suddenly Santicelo appears from behind in his Marcelo updo. He heard Ev’s name being mentioned and Erni is pleasantly surprised he remembers Ev. Marcelo says it’s a great idea to invite Ev and incidentally he is remembering a lot of things, like the fact that he found out Ana Lu was alive and to stop him from delivering that news, someone orchestrated this accident. When he finds out the culprit, he will have no mercy on them. (Incidentally, he is speaking to Erni with a familiar ‘tu’). Ana Le looks like she wishes she had a strong drink nearby or someone to push off the building to calm her nerves.

Sueño de amor #114 Wed. 8/24/16 "Ricardo Shows He is Just a Schmuck in More Ways Than One"

So, we will start with where we ended: Esperanza finally being forgiven by Ricardo the schmuck. He finally asks how her health is. She is in remission but not "free" yet: she still has some chemotherapy and viral therapy to complete. Ernesto and Pedro were the ones who researched the viral therapy. The doctors have no idea how she is in remission. Eventhough Ricardo the schmuck knows he has no right to ask, he does anyway: is she still planning on marrying Ernesto?

At the hospital, Cristina is still crying and talking with Margarita in the cafeteria. The upsetting topic is what Esperanza did to protect Ricardo and now he protected her from the bullet. The meaning from that is that either one was willing to sacrifice their life for the other. Margarita admits that is a huge kind of love to have. Cristina wonders how she can compete with that.

Esperanza fills in Ricardo about Ernesto's 20% operational kidney and how they have not talked about getting married since they called the priest to her death bed. He needs a transplant soon or he might die. Ricardo the schmuck asks her if she loves Ernesto. That does not sit well with Esperanza. If Ricardo is so sure about his marrying Cristina, why is he asking another woman about her marriage plans? Ricardo the schmuck apologizes saying he should not have gone there; it is just that he never understood the whole Ernesto thing. How she could kick him out of her life but forgive a man she hated? Ricardo the schmuck only had her come to tell her he owes his life to her and he thanks her. Esperanza tells him he owes her nothing and thanks him again for forgiving her but adds that she should not be there. Cristina his future wife should be there and she leaves.

Narcos Capitulo #2, August 23, 2016 : Violence galore

[Some scenes may get merged]

Steve&Connie have just got on a flight for Columbia. On their way there they notice the Bahamas. It's quite an adoring window site (I especially like the filming and locations in this show. They feel very fresh.) . When the couple arrived to Columbia they ran into a lot of issues as they lacked the papers for a cat. The flight assistant was obviously bought. He called in for his boss and the scheme was on. They waited hours and hours until the boss let them through but that didn't come without a price. He scanned Steve's documents and sent them to Poison.

Yago #58: White Lies and Truth Serum

As she’s being kidnapped by Hernan, bound and gagged and stuffed in the trunk of his car, Selma recalls how her relationship with Fidel began. She was Camilo’s girlfriend, but she was in love with his married BFF Fidel and was fighting the mutual attraction. She tells us that she knew choosing Fidel over Camilo would have consequences, but she preferred to die at Fidel’s side than to live at Camilo’s.

At Casa Guerrero, Yomar and the family fret about why Camilo is targeting them (taking away Jonas’ recent furniture contract) and if he knows Yago is Omar. Yomar thinks this could be the case, and everyone panics. He then admits to them that Sara knows his real identity, which sends them into a tizzy, as they are sure she betrayed him and told Camilo. Yomar doesn’t think so, and Sara comes over and pleads her case. She swears she will never betray Yomar again like she did in the past. She doesn’t think that Camilo knows Yomar’s real identity, because surely he would have already done something more serious to them...

Sueño de Amor (SdA) US #113 (MEX #114, #115). Tuesday August 23, 2016. Darn You, Kracy, You Had One Job!

I'm a rational being, get me out of here!
At a glance

-- He lives! That rascal!
-- It appears that the geniuses at Looneyvision got scissor-happy again and are doing some creative editing to this creative show. They smushed two episodes together, #114 and #115 as per the Mexican broadcast. Recapper Jarifa has kindly contributed a summary for Episode #115, added at the end.

A closer look

In our wearisome and most loathed Sueñolandia, a severe case of nuptialsus interruptus is underway. We now know why Cristina Vélez Valderrama (CVV) chose an all-white color palette for her wedding: Camouflage. This is the only way we can explain why trigger-happy Kracy missed her shot at such a short distance and ended up getting Ricardolt in the shoulder instead of right between the eyes. Esperanza using her one-true-love as a human shield didn’t help either. It also seemed as if Tricky Ricky deliberately chose to shield Esperanza with his body instead of protecting his stunning bride; partly out of love and partly because he needed more cushion for the fall.

Narcos Capitulo #1, August 22,2016:The harsh beginnings




We are shown a glimpse of Colombia in the past and it's magical realism.The narrator begins: "Nowadays the U.S government can spy on everyone they want. You come near a computer or a a cellphone, you're doomed. But back in Colombia 1989 there was no Internet , no GPS. Only the rich could afford the seemingly untraceable satellites phones like landowners, politicians but especially the Narcos."

Yago Capitulo 57 August 22 2016: The return of Sauron



We begin our intense episode with a flashback. Sara, just about standing before the court entrance  finally admits that she is not a victim at all but no one can choose their destiny. It's difficult to pick between your future spouse or your sickly sister. She should have picked both! Right when Sara wanted to exit Damian grabbed her, forbidding her to leave. The snake eyed Damian reminds her that all fingers point at her. The court needs a guilty person and that can't be Sara right? The whole charade is later revealed to be Camilo's plan to marry Sara. He gives Sara some cursed wedding ring. He will marry her even if Sara said that she'll drag Camilo into the abyss, it's a risk worth taking. Sara pretends to accept it. Camilo also ordered someone to take pictures of Sara&Camilo

Tres Veces Ana - #80 - Next time please serve Valium at your party!



We start this perfect length episode (with an added bonus of no repeat scenes!) with Ana Le rudely inquiring if stunned Sole is mute or deaf, or neither, in which case would she please answer her question on Viridiana’s whereabouts. Sole manages to mumble something on Viri being right back. Ana Le wants to know Sole’s position here – it is seamstress. Yes, that is obvious, contemptuously spits out Ana Le. Sole is offered sweet relief from this most unexpected company when Viri comes out, and Ana Le runs out to congratulate her. Sole scurries away to worry in the backroom in front of Ceci. She is trembling and in a whiny voice proclaims that she has a bad feeling, and wants to go home to her daughter.


With Sole out of their earshot, Ana Le wants to know if this seamstress is any good, and if she is, Viri must send her along with the dress to make it fit just right, since all that money was paid by Tio to make Ana Le happy. (I would probably not be remiss in my estimation that the entire viewership of this TN would like to offer a suggestion to take a pair of scissors to this dress to make it really stand out…or stand down.) Viridiana calls Ana Le out on making TioM spend so much money on this dress. Ana Le uses this opportunity to bring up Claudia, who was bidding against them, and since TioM had a past with her, he was trying to outbid. Viri somehow looks like she has Ana Le’s number.

Sueño de amor, Ep. 112 (8.22.16) Esperanza suffers Aquimichú syndrome: One step forward, two steps back

We start this episode with Ricardo telling Cristina Vélez Valderrama, the firewoman of the education, the reasons why he left Esperanza 21 years ago. We will never have the whole story, because he partially reveals that he did it because of his father, who died anyway, so his effort was in vain. Poor Ricardo.

Then, like in the truth or dare game, CVV reveals that her mother is alive and kicking in USA. We all know her father died of lung cancer. Why is her mother not coming to the wedding, is she illegal also and can not leave the county? Poor Cristinita.

In the Guerrero's household, Esperanza and her daughter discuss Ernesto's kidney's problems. Since he is reluctant to accept the girl's organ, Patricia has an idea to make him take it. Looks like these women like to decide what is best for everybody else except themselves.
Your father is a saint, says Espy, he prefers to die before taking your kidney.
He is so noble, right?
-But mapa, I am ready to donate my kidney for love. Love is everything!
-Well, and if you're right and love is everything, why is he rejecting me? You know that I can not leave him, after all he did for me. 
-This is the same you did to Ricardo, remember? It's called karma, viatch!
-And I can not keep insisting with Ricardo either. I need to get away from them.
