Tres Veces Ana, Monday Sept 26, 2016: Bonus - Advice from the Patio

Howdy! We have no episode tonight, so in lieu of a recap I offer this silly advice column for the Anas and their friends.

Dear Patio: I have my boyfriend's wedding ring. I've been planning to give it to his wife when I meet her, but I just found out she's my long-lost sister, so now giving her the ring just seems awkward and a little mean. Should I do it anyway?

Also, I'd like to bring gifts when I meet her and my other sister. What do you suggest?

Sincerely, Ana the Acrobat

El Color de la Pasión, #14 Everyone wants to know who this handsome stranger is

This is episode #15 on hulu.

Lucia wants to prove to Rodrigo that she’s over and done with him, so she faces Marcelo and puts her lips on his for a quick but sensual kiss. This shocked Marcelo, but the most shocking part wasn’t that she turned and kiss him out of the blue, but that he felt something stir deeply, and he wanted to explore that feeling some more. So he grabs her arm, turns her toward him, and kisses her again, this time much longer and deeper, and she responds to him in kind. They finally break apart and look at each other, both surprised at what they felt. Rodrigo is waiting patiently for the kiss to end and says he doesn’t believe their fake intimacy, there’s no way she could have gotten over him that quickly. But by the looks of that kiss with Marcelo and their reactions afterwards, we can see that yes, she did in fact get over him that quickly.

Tres Veces Ana #102: And The Truth Shall Set Who Free? I Think I'd Rather Be Chained

Ramiro and Ana Laura have had another lover’s spat.  They make up, vowing NEVEREVER to have another.  Just then Ernestina, La Gran Abuela, makes a grand gesture of sanctioning premarital passion by presenting the two an all-expenses paid 3 day getaway holiday.  (Dunno, but having Granny pay for my first out-of-wedlock, secret fantasy roll in the hay just seems sooooo wrong.)

Samuel and Mariano discuss the fine and finer points of Mo’s first and second encounters with Soledad and Ana Lucia.  “—Instead of contacting us she kept the girl!  She kidnapped my niece.”  So, first off, Mo wants Sam to change his will.  He’s now giving 50% to Ana Lucha and 25% each to the other triplets.  This will even the score for 20 years of financial deprivation she suffered.  Sam says that’s all well and good, Bro, but stop and think how Ana Leticia will react to this. (Good catch, Sammy Boy.  It ain’t gonna be pretty.)

A que no me dejas Episode 10 (9.23.16) Lies have expiration dates. Check them before you lie.

Paulina and Adrián's relationship has become a web of lies and everybody and everything is getting trapped in it. Yes! Like a black hole of lies!

Nuria lied.
She said she had an exam and that she was going to a party and she went to Beach Pretty to offer herself to Adrián and tell him that Paulina had replaced him with Camilo. Adrián can be ugly but is not stupid, so he didn't believe her and threw her out of the room. In any case, she planted the seed of doubt in his mind and he went to Port Hope to verify if in reality Paulina was with Camilo. AND SHE WAS! Of course Adrián got to the hospital in the precise moment when the doctor told them that little Mau was out of the coma and Paulina was hugging Camilo so after Adrián saw that, Camilo got a knuckle sandwich and Adrián left without listening to anything Paulina had to say. 

Life is fair (when you lie)
When Nuria was arriving to Port Hope after the delay caused by sleeping with Napoleón aka Luis, a random guy she picked up at the bar who then robbed her, and after asking Leonel for a favor so she could return home, Adrián was leaving, so they are both witnesses to Paulina's effort to talk to him and explain what really happened. Adrian refuses to listen.
When Nuria sees Adrián go to the boarding area ignoring Paulina, while Paulina is crying like a Magdalena, she thinks life is fair. That's how messed up her mind is.

Tres Veces Ana #101

Sneaky will have a recap for us tomorrow, until then a place to discuss

Sneaky's recap below!

(Today on apologies w/sneaky two shoes (which seems to be a weekly show)  - I missed the first, almost to the first commercial break. I have no excuse, nor any good reason. I was just daydreaming and forgot to set my recorder and by the time I realized I was missing it it was 12-13 min past the hour. Sorry:(  What I did see though was chock full of irritating tropes )

Ram & Llora sweet talk/convo Abue has a surprise for them, Ram looks concerned over what it could be- Analu eavesdrops and learns afterward that not only does he have a novia they're getting married and Analu is invited to the wedding as "the guest of honor" (which she should find weird but doesn't say anything about)

Chana takes the opportunity to 'I told you so' to Ramiro about accepting that gun. He acknowledges she was right and will never doubt her again. She also reminds him he's the only one who can save the girl.

Tres Veces Ana # 100 - To tell or not to tell – that is the question…

Recent episodes featuring this tio-niece bond and dramatic interludes of doubting your identity have been putting me in the Shakespearean mood (not that our blue-eyed Tio could resemble anything close to a hunchback), so here we go….but not before this little plug for you, Patio friends: I will be out of town next week on a business trip and unlikely to have the opportunity to either watch the show or keep up with the patio comments. Would anyone (my fellow brilliant recappers, or someone new even perhaps wanting to give it a try?) be willing to volunteer to be a guest recapper for next Wednesday’s (9/28) episode? I would really appreciate it, so please let me know in the comments below and if need be, I can get a page up for that episode, where someone could post their notes/recap.

With that, here we go! Beware, my dears – some consolidation ahead. Brevity is the soul of wit, I have heard, though writers of some of the scenes below have not.

A Que No Me Dejas #8 - Place your bets now as the race for "Who Discovers Gonzalo's Affair First" Begins!

Hello Everyone! The chess pieces keep dancing around the board so let's get started….

Adrian is appalled that Paulina would even suggest breaking up. He says he understands Mauricio is a priority but he doesn’t want to break up. At that moment, Gonzalo arrives and Paulina cuts the call short.

Gonzalo gives money roses and a pearl necklace and a note that says he doesn’t like when they are mad at each other. Monica rejects the gives and Elisa is happy that she has taken a stance against the fact that Gonzalo doesn’t seem to care that much about his other children. She hopes Monica keeps at it.

Karen thinks Paulina jumped the gun at suggesting her and Adrian break up. Mauricio might be in a coma for a while but Karen doesn’t think it’s fair for anyone involved. (I suggest they just go get married in a day then Paulina come back and be with Mauricio but married).

Ines talks to Mauricio about what his life will be once he’s better. (This poor kid has been through the wringer. I hope his life does get better).

Adrian presents the project for the clients to Odette and she’s impressed. He tells her that their relationship is on stand still because of Mauricio and Odette already smells blood in the water. (My god, I can’t imagine people in real life plotting to ruin other people’s relationships but I’m sure it also happens.)

  • Julieta trashes Adrian's office, she does not believe that he is really gone because all his stuff is still there.
  • Jaime finds out that Julieta did not go to therapy, he threatens her and says he will move out if she does not get help. Ugh, just leave Jaime, just leave.

El Color de la Pasión (ECDLP) #12. Tuesday September 20, 2016. A Fiery Encounter! Ssss!

Hello Patio Pals! This is not a detailed scene-by-scene recap because I woke up this morning feeling unwell. It is either a stomach bug or too much TN cruelty. The first paragraphs are more thorough because I wrote them yesterday. Enjoy!

To make up for the lateness and the missing details.

Lucía’s heartbreak is revealing pyromaniacal tendencies. However, her choice of target is misguided. Instead of starting a controlled ex-fiancé bonfire then moving to a ranch and hooking up with Fernando Colunga, she sets her marital bed and honeymoon suitcase on fire. No smoke alarm or extinguisher anywhere and you call this a new build? Thankfully, the hottest and bravest curls in Puebla, heck, in all of Mexico and the Western Hemisphere, fly in to Lucía’s rescue. He exclaims: “Lucía! What are you doing?” and makes the flames melt away from sheer swooning at his hawtness. Lucía is surprised: Who is this man? How does he know her name? He introduces himself: Marcelo Escalante, Fetching Papasito by day, Unwavering Avenger by night, Amateur Fireman in my spare time. Mucho gusto. He says he’ll tell her the whole story outside and offers to take her home because she is in no condition to drive. She refuses and storms out. He chases after her: “Wait! You can’t leave like this! Look at you! You’re trembling!” “That’s MY problem! Not yours!” “You left your fugly car open. It’s gonna get stolen!” “¡Ojalá! I hope so!” “Careful!” A car zooms right past Lucía, horns blazing. She was about to get run over and all for the sake of a no-good mophead mofo who isn’t worth the time of day. This stops her in her tracks for a moment. Marcelo puts a comforting hand on her shoulder: “Don’t you think you’ve done enough foolish things (for today)?” “Don’t touch me!” “Don’t tell me you’re afraid of men!” “I’m not afraid of any man!” “Then let me take you home.” “(I’ll do it) Just to show you that you’re very wrong. Where’s your car?”

Tres Veces Ana #99 - Split Just Got Real!

Color Guide:
Reader Reaction in Blue
Rhethoric (en espanol) in Green
Avances in Red
Name Key in Purple

Finally, the appropriate hug he's been waiting for

Tio is filled with emotion at finding his niece. Soulless is also filled with emotion, albeit on the opposite spectrum. She wants to talk to AnaLu before she speaks to him, but AnaLu’s had enough of her. They go elsewhere, and he offers to talk over dinner. She’d rather not leave her mom alone just yet, so they decide to address things tomorrow. AnaLu admires her Tio's eyes (yea, we're with you on that honey). They both have light eyes (ojos claros), she now understands why she looks so different from her “mother”. He tells her that the last time he saw her she was about 4, and that her father passed away a long time ago. She wants to know why he abandoned her, did he think of her and love her? (¿por qué me dejó? ¿El pensaba en mí y me quería?), but TioM assures that her papa adored her. Maribel interrupts looking like she walked out of a Jane Fonda workout video, and says they need to talk. AnaLu can't be bothered with Bloody Mari, but TioM's gotta jet & will come back for her the following day. Mariblood waits for her in her room. TioM needs a hug & kiss but AnaLu is boundary-conscious (unlike a certain sobrina), and gives him a friendly embrace. Teardrops, yada yada. TioM turns to see Rem, tells her (voy a arreglar cuentas con su hijado) he's going to sort her godson out. (Viewerville gets tingly all over).

A Que No Me Dejas (AQNMD) #6. Monday September 19, 2016. This Episode Was Brought To You By Straitjackets R Us And Waiter-Outers Anonymous

Aggravated assault and attempted suicide did not get me locked up, so I am trying my luck again!

At a glance

-- Operation Silent Love is still underway, with two orbiters circuling around our Silent Lovers, waiting for the opportunity to swoop in once the relationship crashes and burns.
-- Julieta is still running amok... And not in a padded cell.

A closer look

Camilo jumps in to save Paulina from her family’s relentless interrogation. He pretends he was the biker who picked her up, as witnessed by runteldat Nuria. Paulina and Camilo announce that they are not rekindling their romance as of yet, but they are giving themselves the opportunity to get close to one another and see if they can revive the love that once united them. Camilo says he is sure of his feelings towards Paulina but he understands that she still loves Adrián and needs time to define her own feelings. Nuria says she doesn’t believe the pair. They are lying liars who lie and she will demonstrate it! Vitch, get a job!

El Color de la Pasion #11 (Uni/Hulu #10): I Just Wanted to Publicly Humiliate Her—I Didn’t Want Her to Die!

The bride beams, after she says her “I dos.” The sister of the bride schemes, and slyly threatens the groom. The groom, head full of Brylcreem, balks and says adieu. Shocked faces of the guests, as out the door he flew!

Before he runs out of the church, Rodrigo manages to lamely apologize to Lucia. “Forgive me.” It’s not enough to quell her sobs and stop her heart from breaking. Alonso’s first instinct is to run after the bastard who broke his daughter’s heart, but he quickly realizes that his daughter needs him and his hugs more. Rebeca tells the dumbstruck guests to please excuse them—they could have never expected something like this. As they can all imagine, there will be no party. Lucia disentangles herself from her father’s embrace and corrects Rebeca. “Yes, there WILL be a party. I’m inviting you all to celebrate with me that I DIDN’T marry that a**hole. (poco hombre) You know where. Be there!”
