La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo (LDVDEC) #16 5.29.17: The Double Life of (Pretty Much Everyone but Paloma)

Memories are in italics.

• At Furia. Danilo warns Calao to be careful as his extracurricular activities almost got them in trouble with Ryan. Calao reiterates that it’s not his fault they sent him for Laustela but Danilo is happy after all because he now knows the real reason Laustela went back with Ryan: Calao’s threats. Calao smiles but shakes his head and denies having threatened Laustela. Danilo does remind him that he is his boss so if he falls, so does Calao.
• Ryan wants to know who hacked his medical file but Steve shakes his head. Ryan has no idea who would be interested, as only Mercy knew, and his lawyers went through great lengths to make sure his stint in the rehabilitation center wasn’t brought up in the trial. Ryan assumes it could be Pedro’s people, investigating his past to see how they can blackmail him, or it could have to do with Laustela’s threats. Steve is confused and frustrated as Ryan just told him he thought the threats were a lie.

La Candidata Lunes, 5/29/17 Chapter 1: Looking for Guilt



Foreword

After years of chronicling the lives of the rich and shameless I am still astonished at how similar they are no matter the country or culture. The newly rich like Eladio Gomez-Luna will buy their respectability through the silence and compliance of others. In the end he fell short of becoming another Gerald Bradley because the latter never fooled the set who regarded him as an interloper. In the end – if what I heard about his death was true – he was ultimately unable to fool himself. Since I no longer practice the faith of my upbringing I am done speculating on whether he is in Purgatory or elsewhere.

I have found new examples of the ultimate indulgences of such people. While there is no Coliseum or Circus Maximus in Mexico City the San Románs share some of the vices of certain historical personages echoed by their name. Only modern civil law and my profession have – thus far – held the line against the rise of a new Caligula or Nero. I am a latter-day Suetonius, telling tales of hypocrisy, corruption, and crimes that attempt to defy discovery and go without punishment. I present my tales to you, my elite readers, that you may judge these people for who they are.

Sit back and read at your leisure. At least our wine is better than that which was consumed by the Caesars.
  • D.D.

La Piloto 59: Bad Boys Brawl But Bad Broads Rule

All in the works now --Edit



Monica sits in her jail cell thinking back to how the state prosecutor doesn’t understand her, I.e., how she could have let herself bow to the demands of a couple of (insidious and predatory) redneck narcos anymore than she could ever understand DEADave’s’s rejecting her sexual advances.  (You mean besides Yolanda’s being a beautiful, brave and alluring bad girl?)

La doble vida de Estela Carrillo, # 15, Friday 05/26/15 Dumb and dumber make a fine couple, indeed

This is from memory (watched while cooking dinner), so sorry for any mistakes; I did a lot of editing, I combined scenes for better flow, stupid dialogues were ignored (almost everything having to do with the Threesome that nobody asked for, formed by LetMe, Eraser and Brujita).

Estela is waiting for Ryan at the restaurant, but he's a no show. She calls Furia and Genesis tells her that Ry forgot his phone at work because he left in a hurry - he needed to "save" someone. This worries Estela, she asks Genesis to search for the last call on Ryan's phone and give her the number. (Note to Ryan: password protect your phone, you silly idiot.)
She then calls said number and ends up at a rehabilitation clinic where a receptionist tells her that Mr. Cabrera has been checking in, without giving any further information.
Estela is impactada that Ryan would hide something this important from her and tells Chayo that she needs to further investigate. There is no way that she can tell him her own deep dark secrets as long as HE has deep dark secrets of his own.

So these two lovable fools already have a rocky relationship three days into their dating/ engagement (who would have guessed, with all the lying by omission, by mistake, on purpose, for the grater good etc etc..). When they meet back at the house, Ryan apologizes for standing her up at the restaurant, in the process making up a story about some business deal that he had to solve asap. Estela pretends to believe him, but decides to do some investigating into  Ryan Cabrera, Man of Many Secrets and ardent lover.

La Piloto #58 5.25.17: In Which Yolanda Realizes Her Nightmare is Far From Over...

• Dave wants to be a DEA again and accepts the offer to take over Montgomery’s position. He reiterates that they still have plenty to do including dismantling the whole Lucio operation. Fajardo admits that he was wrong because he is an excellent agent and Dave thanks him. For now, their top priority is finding Montgomery, who is probably hiding with Oscar. He shows Fajardo Montgomery’s card, which has his personal contact information and not his DEA information.
• Bautista updates on John’s situation; he thinks it would be impossible to launch an escape plan at the Mexico City police station but Oscar thinks they should still try. The Senator thanks him for the information and hangs up as the consul walks in. The Senator chides her for being so carefree but their situation but she explains them she had to go through hell and high water to be there. The Senator reminds her that they all fall should John talk but the Consul wants more details so they can take care of the problem. Vergara explains that they tried to rescue John in Villa Antigua but it failed and they are looking at other options. Oscar tells them that he will rescue his brother, no matter what, and storms out.

La Piloto #57 5.24.17: In Which Yolanda Steals a Baby...

• The Senator is pissed and with good reason: John has been officially detained and will be extradited to the US by the DEA, Oscar has done nothing thus far to rescue John from prison and he cannot locate his fellow Sombra partners with the exception of the Governor. Vergara tries to make excuses for them but the Senator is tired of excuses and will fix everything when he’s President. For now, he wants Vergara to cal Montgomery and ensure John doesn’t say anything to the DEA.
• The girls watch the press conference in the hospital as Zulima looks on. A hospital employee comes and asks for family members of Amanda. Yolanda tells her that she didn’t have any one but them and the employee asks them to come with her.
• Fajarado meets Raul and Monica. They hand over Montgomery’s cell phone and Fajarado nods as he looks over the evidence.
• Santamaria and Rubio arrive at Cielito Lindo and decide to ditch the ambulance there; they notice how close the bar is to AeroTours.

La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo (LDVDEC) #13 5.24.17: Let Your Body Do the Talking...

• In Asdrubal's office, Danilo isn’t sure if Laustela is gone for forever, because she left and came back three years ago, but if she does, he and Morgana would have had their own child by then and claimed the 20%. He does lament that Laustela left without sleeping with him but Asdrubal reminds him that Laustela needs to come back ASAP lest Ryan open up an investigation into her whereabouts. If he does, the police may investigate Furia and that would make El Dorado very unhappy. He instructs Danilo to think and make sure Laustela comes back so everything is calm.
• Laustela explains that everything is over between because she can’t continue to be Estela Carrillo, not with all the problems it has caused. Ryan proposes they find a solution but Laustela thinks the only solution is to be far away from him and start a new life. She asks Ryan to let her go, if he loves her, because she can’t be Estela but she can’t go back to Laura Oviedo, either. Ryan asks her to please tell him why not but Laustela shakes her head and asks that he not make things harder. Ryan can’t let her go, not knowing that she and her daughter are in danger, but Laustela asks him to leave her be. Ryan nods and hopes she realizes the mistake she’s making. He leaves and Laustela breaks down.

La Piloto #56 5.23.17: In Which Yolanda Gets Some Very Bad News...

• John calls Dave, Monica and Garrido idiots because he will escape either way. Monica agrees, takes out her gun, and slams John against the wall. She proposes they take care of the problem right then and there and John challenges her to do so.
• Yolanda tells Raul that Monica, Garrido and Dave are guarding John and they will do so until the DEA comes to arrest him. Raul asks how she was able to capture John and Olivia tells him that Yolanda is a fighter and they all laugh. Yolanda tells them that it was either that or the Lucios were going to kill them all. She proposes they talk about it later but Wilmer wants to hear the whole story of John’s capture.
• Garrido and Dave tell Monica to put down the gun and not ruin all they’ve accomplished till now. John reminds Monica that they killed Sofia and she goes in for the kill but Dave manages to wrestle the gun away from her and then punch John in the face. Garrido then receives a call from one of his men, who tells him that the two trucks that were seen in the vicinity, presumably to help John escape, have taken the bait and are following their squad cars. He relays the news to Dave and Monica and John laughs before telling them that Oscar will never give up on him. Dave suggests Garrido order reinforcements and not let Oscar escape. John continues to laugh, hysterically.

La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo (LDVDEC) #12 5.23.17: Love Letters & Songs Make Excellent Firewood

Memories are in italics. 

Laustela's letter is bolded.

• Ryan goes in for the kiss but Laustela tells him she is going to see Paloma and leaves.
• Calao informs Asdrubal that they rescued Laustela and dropped her off where he instructed but it was with her friend because she never let her go. Asdrubal asks if anyone saw them but Calao confirmed no one did but ICE will likely investigate, especially because they released at least a dozen illegal immigrants. Asdrubal doubts it but either way they let them escape close to the Mexican border so someone is sure to catch them. He tells Calao to turn on the radio or the TV so he can sure and leaves.
• Laustela goes to visit Paloma, who welcomes her with open arms, and hugs her tightly. Paloma wants to know where she was but Laustela tells her it doesn’t matter because she’s back and loves her very much. Paloma loves her and Rosario very much too; they hug again.

La Piloto #55, 5-22-17: The Time Bomb Explodes




  • While Yolanda and DEADave are walking back to AeroTours, John is on the cell phone telling Oscar which cell he’s in and where it’s located.  “—We’re working on it, Bro.”

  • Yolo tells Dave she’s tired of all the crap she’s been put through and it was never what she wanted (I believe.  Again I have no CC’s.)  She notes a scratch from a bullet on his arm.  They go into Auntie Rosalba’s old bedroom to fix it up.  The two fix up their relationship as well.  Love in the afternoon transpires.

  • Rubio and SantaMaria drive towards the AeroTours parking lot in the meantime and Viewerville panics.  There’s a request for the ambulance driver (now presumably dead as a doornail out in the campo somewhere) to report in by radio.
