La Sombra del Pasado #70 The Puppetmistress Strikes Again!

Greetings, Sombra Peeps!  First of all, a big Thank You to Eli for swapping days with me and giving us the exciting details of Friday’s exciting episode!  

Next, a lame, but true, disclaimer:  My DVR farted out on me and there were several scenes I was going to clarify.  So, here's what I remember and put together from my notes.  Feel free to correct and expand in comments!

 Let’s jump right in where we left off with Cande deploying her latest separate Cris and Aldonza weapon:  the sibling bomb!  Cris thinks it’s the most absurd thing he ever heard and doesn’t believe a word of it.  Cande tells of Roberta’s affair with Severiano who recovers enough from his initial shock to reluctantly agree.  Aldonza looks as if she is going to hurl and tearfully protests Cande’s “revelation.”  Aldonza says she doesn’t believe it but she leaves in disgust and hurt, Cris runs after her.  He begs her not to believe this idiocy!  The seeds of doubt have been planted and Aldonza cries that Cande could be right and if she is, what do they do?  Aldonza says her mother is the only one who knew for sure and they can’t ask her!  Cris says a DNA test will settle the issue immediately!  Not one to be bothered with thinking things through when a dramatic display of emotion and fleeing are an option, Aldonza chooses the latter:  she wants to be alone! 

Once home she talks to Adelina and tells her of the latest salvo from Cande.  Adelina tries to tell her it’s absolutely not true; her father is Raimundo!  Aldonza wants to know if she can prove Raimundo is her father;  Adelina says there’s nothing to prove!  Aldonza asks if it’s true that Roberta and Sev had an affair.  Adelina answers sadly, yes.  Aldonza wants to know when it started.  Adelina is not sure but she IS sure that Aldonza and Cris are NOT siblings!  Aldonza’s mind has already gone to the horrible thought that Sev could be her father and that her own father raped her!  Adelina tries to calm Aldonza and also suggests the DNA test but Aldonza laments that she knows he will never take it.

Amores con trampa #41 and #42 5/25/15 and 5/26/15


I didn't think this show could make me happier, but tonight it did!!! There's a talking donkey.

You heard me. A talking donkey.

I think my life is complete.

I will be combining and possibly condensing scenes tonight. I'm doing 4 recaps this week. Gotta pace myself ;-)

And ¡Ay ay ay! Facundo was talking a mile minute tonight!

Perpetua catches Maria talking to Santiago and demands to know what she's doing with this caballero (which would mean gentleman….is it wasn't dripping with sarcasm). She calls her daughter "María de mis pecados" which cracks me up for some reason. Perpetua tries to drag Maria out, telling her daughter that she shouldn't have anything to do with Santi (ese gavilán...hawk.) Santi tries to explain that he and Maria are just trying to fix things. Perpetua doesn't have a thing to say to him. She dumps a flower vase on him. Santi's all wet.

Felipe is an even bigger nitwit in this episode. He's annoyingly attentive to Francis. It annoys me, no her. Francis is loving every minute of it. She's finally happy. She's got Feli and that rancherita can to hang out in her mud-puddle or whatever. Her two idiot minions with no self respect notice that Carmen just came into the cafe. Carmen has a surprise for Panchota….excuse me….Francisca. It's the surveillance tape from the parking lot. It proves that Francis threw herself in front of Carmen's car. Francis thinks Carmen is just trying to steal Feli again. Carmen tells her she's happy with Diego now, besides...Feli is whipped (mandilón.) She also tells Francis she didn't have to fake a pregnancy to keep her man. Carmen leaves the CD with Francis. When Carmen leaves Feli asks about the CD. Francis claims it's a video of when she had dark hair.

Freedom, and lies! La Sombra Del Pasado #69 05/22/15

It's a long weekend, let's all get some drinks and chill! (Some scenes have been combined, or moved out of order so I can get this recap up faster)

We start off the action where we left off last night, Satan has pulled a gun on my favorite boy in all of Sanata Lucia, Renato keeps his wits about him and tells Sev that he {Sev} will make a mistake and when he does Renato will pounce. Renato leaves and Sev is left only in the company of his lawyer (Nava?) who has a look on his face that says "they don't pay me enough for this crap"-seriously, go watch the actors facial expressions, you won't regret it!

Lo Imperdonable Episode #5, Friday May 22nd 2015; We All Love Our Freedom; We All Choose Our Destiny; And We Need To Watch Out For Strangers

Let’s skip the scenes from yesterday and get right to the new stuff….

Jardin De Prado Castelo
Virginia tells Emi that Vero has done “terrible things” and Emi wants to know what the heck she’s talking about and he wants to know NOW.

Pueblo Nuevo
Pierre walks around town and looks back every once in a while to make sure he won’t be seen by anyone. He stops in front of a window.

Jardin De Cresencio
Ana Perla sits on her bed in her room and is reading a book which she quickly hides when Abuelo Cresencio comes into her room and gets on her case for being lazy and not doing anything productive. Ana Perla explains that she can’t do much being locked her room. Abuelo hands Ana Perla her embroidery and suggests she embroider. Ana Perla will do as Abuelo says.

Jardin De Prado Castelo
Emi has Virignia by the arm and Virginia in tears [crocodile tears, perhaps?] tells him to let her go. She tells him there’s no point in talking about Veronica if he’s going to act like such a nutcase [oh you haven’t seen anything yet, Virginia. Viewerville know just how crazy Sergio Sendel can be]. Emi knows that what Virginia has to say is to make Vero look bad in his eyes. He tells her that if she has something serious to say then to tell him NOW. Virginia cries and asks him how he could treat her this way during a party. He apologizes and tells her that he makes her mad when she acts this way. Virginia tells him that she doesn’t understand why she tells him things about Veronica if when she does they end up arguing. Emi wants her to promise him that she’ll try to get along with Veronica. Virginia reluctantly promises that she will. She tells him that what she wants the least is to argue with him. She tells him that they’ll enjoy the party and be okay. She goes off to greet Mariana who has arrived.

Mariana and Pablo have arrived to the party holding hands and Virginia greets them. Meanwhile, Martin stares and looks attentively at Virginia. Jorge shows up and tells Martin that he can see that Martin is impressed with his niece Virginia. Martin tells Jorge that he has two beautiful nieces. Jorge tells Martin that he loves his nieces and takes care of them. He’s like a father to them and he keeps an eye on who they mingle with. Martin understands and tells Jorge that he’ll get to know him. Jorge is glad Martin says that because he doesn’t usually let people he doesn’t know well into his home. Martin tells Jorge he’s like him and also likes to know who comes into his home and his construction company. Martin tells Jorge that his construction company isn’t a big one but it’s been successful because they offer ecological solutions now that they are needed more. Jorge is left interested and wants to know more about Martin’s construction company.

Que Te Perdone Dios #88: Dedications and Resuscitations

Constanza is thanking her lucky stars—well, actually her defunct hubby for his having had that little affair with Diego’s mama way back when cuz now she and the rest of the gals in the family are no longer alone when Diego knocks on her door.  Diego is now there as a male voice to protect them from that vicious wolf in sheep’s clothing that finagled his way in twenty some odd years ago: namely, Fausto.    He has a quick chat with her and tells Crazy Connie that altho’ he’s guilty of a mortal sin in loving Abi, he’ll take the hit in Heaven and keep his mouth shut about it here on earth  now that he’s living at the hacienda.

On the other hand, Mateo is admitting to Padre Tomas that he’s literally losing it because he senses now that his uncle is lusting after innocent and unsuspecting Abigail whose life is in danger.  Unfortunately, Padre Tom having been badly hoodwinked by the fiendish Fausto lo these many years believes that it’s Mat who’s totally obsessing over Abi and letting it cloud his judgment regarding the man Mat used to revere as his substitute pappy.  Padre Tom psshaws and prattles on that he’s smarter than all that (apparently not by much)!  But Mat, still hopeful, asks the padre to have a bit of faith in him, and not to forsake him and Abi in their time of need.  (Good luck with that.)

Back at the hacienda a bit later, Diego walks outside to the garden to find Abi sitting near the fountain.  He hopes she isn’t bitter about what happened at the church.  Naw, she can understand learning what he did had to scotch the marriage thing.    Too bad for her that he was supposed to be the guy who could make her forget about Mateo.  It’s just life crapping on her again is all.  Yup, he says.  They hug--sibling style--as Feisty surreptitiously glares down at them.

The next morning Renata stops in to see Tomas and takes the opportunity to discuss Mat’s suspicions regarding Fausto and Abi.  They agree that Mat’s probably so jealous that he’s misinterpreting things.  He suggests the best thing to allay his suspicions is to tell Mat the truth about Abi being her daughter.  Ren refuses.  Mat loves Abi so much that he wouldn’t be able to keep the truth from her.   Tomas thinks she’s got to try to make Mat understand somehow and stop thinking crazy things about the man who raised him.  Ren seems to think that now that Abi’s no longer opposed to their adopting her,  Mat will eventually realize once that’s been done that Fausto was only trying to help Ren smooth the way for Abi to get comfortable with the idea.

As for Fausto, he’s spending his morning warning Abi away from Diego, trying again to convince her that Diego simply has designs on her and Ren’s money and lands.  Abi disagrees and says she’s known him for forever and that he’s too decent to ever do anything like that.

Upstairs, Diana is having a bad day and is staying in bed.  The others head into town for the inauguration of the new Braille foundation Ren and Ximena have funded.  The ceremony takes place and Ximena is bummed to finally find out then that Tomas is actually the town’s priest.   Viewerville snoozes through this crappy sleep-fest until FINALLY Comandante Barragan ends the show when he reads the honorary plaque which dedicates the place after “Abigail’s father” –none other than Pablo Ramos.  Abi’s glance in Fausto’s direction during this announcement of Pablo Ramos as her papi seems like she thinks of it as just another one of the many lies she knows she’s been told.  (OMG, does she still think Feisty’s her papi?)

In the D.F., meanwhile, Daniela and Porfirio are enjoying each other’s company.  He decides to give Ximela all of the jewelry that used to belong to Max’s mother.  Porfi says Max lost any claim to them when he abandoned the Zarazua’s.  Ximela accepts but mum’s the word after today.

During the ceremony, Teodora and Max spend time at the lake.  He’s wasted so much of life and his has changed from one day to the next without warning.  No, he’s no longer interested in Abi.  She was a challenge he’d imposed on himself, he admits to Teo, when he still thought he owned the world and was king of the cock walk.  He declares his interest in her and she tells him that she was raped.  He guesses it was his daddy what done the deed.  She doesn’t disabuse him of the idea, but she doesn’t confirm his suspicion either.  No matter.  He knows it was even if she doesn’t want to say.  They hug.

At the hacienda, Macaria puts the anonymous note declaring Dee Dee’s twins as really Fausto’s into an envelope and places it in Mat’s (?) bedroom on the night table.

At the reception, Ren makes the announcement that Diego is actually her brother and is now being brought into the fold formally.  Feisty has no choice in saving face but to formally hug Diego as his new BIL.  They embrace and Fausto threatens to get rid of him first chance he has; Diego says not if he gets rid of Fausto first!  The Cougar Sisters chuckle at the news.  Simona and Helena discuss their admiration for Ren.  Marcelino’s wife, Veioleta, gives him grief for being an unsupportive husband.  Fausto rubs Patricio’s nose in it over Ren still staying married to him.

Back at the rancho, Mac notes that Dee Dee is feverish and cannot be woken for her daily meds.  So, she decides to get Princess Di even sicker by turning a fan on her for hours on end.  (Ya got to love it when one catty bitch turns the tables on another catty bitch!  Meeeowwww!!)

Fausto isn’t happy at all with the humiliation of the Pablo Ramos dedication trick Renata pulled on him, let alone telling the whole town about Diego’s being her illegitimate half-brother that she’s decided to bring into the fold.  He gives Ren grief over that.  He’s kept his part of the bargain in trying to preserve their marriage, he gripes to her, but after what she pulled today and the fact that they’re still not essentially “together” she’s “not doing her part.”  “Everything has its limits.”  Ren agrees (whatever that means).  He asks if Abi’s ready to be adopted yet.  Nope, but hopefully soon, Ren believes.  By the way, Ren says, have you seen the deed to La Enramada?  No.  Didn’t Ren have those in her room?  (How come not in a frikkin’ safe or something????)  Abi had asked her specifically to keep them for her, didn’t she?  Yep.

At the same time, in town, we learn that Vee is weakening.  She misses her brute of a hubby.  Simona tells her she’d better get hold of herself.  A moment later, Julianlio knocks on the door and wants to give Sim back her bratty son.  He’s tired of playing papa.

Dee Dee is up and interrupts Mat just before he has a chance to open the envelope with the anonymous note in it.  She begins chatting and then faints dead away.  Mat goes berserk and he and Feisty lay her onto his bed.  While Mat is gone getting his medical bag, Dee Dee murmurs she doesn’t want to lose Feisty’s twins and passes out.   He mumbles something to her like, “—You owe me a favor.”  Feisty notices the envelope, quickly reads and pockets it.  Mat fumbles with his stethoscope and anxiously awaits the ambulance.

Back in town, Simona gives Juli grief for coming to her after destroying her and her son’s lives the way he did.   Well, the kid’s a pain in the ass for him too so if she doesn’t want him, then he’ll send the kid away and she’ll never have to see him around there again.  She doesn’t think he’d ever come back to her.  He hates her now.  Well, replies Juli, willingly or not, the kid’s coming back to you.  That’s that and he leaves.

Across town at the hospital, Dr. Pats takes over Dee Dee’s case and refuses to let Mat assist in taking care of her.  “Save my children!!  Save them!!”  Don’t forget what happened to me, Mat!  You’re in no condition to assist!  Mat agrees to wait and begins pacing.

Thanks and have a happy holiday weekend! --ed.

Amores con Trampa #40 ... Facundo has taken over the company, even the company name and cut Santees salary to less than half... Also seems the homes Santee was trying to sell would not stand to the set of a town hall theater play, Facundo and Beto not happy about that...

Maria calls Santee and lets him know Facundo is planning some event/party at the company this afternoon. Santee thanks Maria for the heads up and says to himself 'you will see the party i will put out for you...'
Facundo meets with some of the construction workers and mentions 'that thing which i told you for this afternoon'. Esteban comes in and assures Facundo he has not spilled the beans about the afternoon party with Santee.  Facundo reminds Esteban that now HE is the biggest voice/vote in the company since Facundo called it 'MY company'. Esteban thinks to himself that Facundo is not as dumb as he thought, that it will be more complicated to get his plan executed. Esteban leaves. Facundo sends the other men away.
Beto tells Facundo that whatever food (garnachas?) he wanted is ready for the afternoon. Facundo starts practicing his 'talk' as an enterpeneur-OTE! LOL!
Isa talks with Alejandra, Felipe and Santee... Isa says you have to be 'ready' for love, and in her opinion Felipe is not ready for marriage.  Then since noone likes her opinion, she plays the target, the 'villain of the movie' in their eyes.  Isa tells Felipe that when he is ready and he plans the rest of his life with a woman, the children will come later.  Isabel says at least you did not choose the farmer.  Felipe reacts quickly saying he does not want to hear anymore about Carmen Yoya. Rocio asks why, he won't tell. Later Felipe tells Santee he will go to the company since Santee is not in the mood. Santee proud that Felipe is volunteering for this and 'is a grown man'. Hugs him.
Party is in full speed... Porfirio is there flirting with the girls who work at the company, even tries to dance with one of the girls. He uses the card that he is 'the father of the new chief of the changarro'. 
Some guy comes by and wants to yell a toast for the best boss in the world!  Facundo takes over and asks the men to loosen their ties... and that he will raise everyone's salary.  Maria comes over and Facundo dances with her.  Esteban, Yoya, Gusana and even Margarito are in attendance.  
Felipe comes in and wants to know what is going on, he is irritated. Esteban tells him.  Elevator opens again and yells asking what is going on, he did not know that there was a party of farmer town with smell of garnacha, fat and chorizo(sausage).  Facundo asks what he is doing there. Felipe says his uncle is the founder and owner of a part of this company, and does not need an invitation.  Maria is scared about Santee's reaction and claim that noone invited him.  Facundo confirms noone invited him. Porfirio wants to take over the argument with the 'bravucon y pesao' guy.  He takes his hat off and is ready to have a round of punches with Santee.  Facundo steps in the way and stops Porfirio, asks Beto to take him outside. But Porfirio stops at the girl he was dancing with ready to take it where he left it off... but Perpetua is there to stop him and save the poor girl. 
Now Santee insults Facundo about offering him tequila, saying he does not drink tequila, pulque or mezcal... he only takes whiskey, but can't consume alcohol now because he is taking anti-depressant and tranquilizer meds now because of what Facundo took him through.
Facundo announces he is the new owner of the company, and while he is on that high, he shows everyone the new name of the company ‘Grupo Carmona’. Santee has what looks like a heart attack reaction. Felipe grabs him worried. Even Facundo and Maria get worried since Santee can't breathe well.

Lo Imperdonable, #4 , Thursday Love at first sight and other thundering feelings

Refrito: Martin and Alfredo talk about Martin’s need to seek out justice and avenge Demetrio.
Every time I hear Martin compare his younger brother to a son, I get a creepy vibe. The guy was 8 years younger, it’s not like you changed his diapers, dude!

The new stuff: The Prado Castello’s talk about the indigenous jewelry line. Virginia thinks it’s a bad idea, no fancy buyer would ever want to wear something as old-fashioned and tacky. Before giving an opinion, Salma wants to know if this was her son’s idea, or Veronica’s. Jorge thinks it’s a great suggestion, the perfect way for them to honor their ancestry. Emiliniño is happy that dad likes the idea. They start discussing the designs, they want to use Maya civilization as inspiration first. Salma says that she and Virginia should leave now, since business talk doesn’t concern them.
Virginia is not happy with the outcome of the discussion and when she and her tia are alone, she starts complaining about once again Veronica getting her way. Salma is happy that Emiliniño is interested in business, but Virginia “makes her see” that this is not a good thing, since it will only mean that Veronica gets to spend more time with him, while pretending to be interested in working together. He will turn to what interests him the most – his Hispanic art, and Veronica will be left in charge of the business. Salma sees the point (of course she does) and when Virginia turns to tears, she starts consoling the poor baby. Boohoo, Emiliniño will have no time to spend with me; boohoo, whenever Veronica sees that I like something, she gets in the way.

Que Te Perdone Dios #87 – Diego Moves On Up, Everybody is Capable of Killing, and Tuteando With Abandon

What I believe is the refrito, as I could not watch the previous episode: Mateo is demanding explanations from Fausto about why he is coming out of Abi’s bedroom, and this isn’t even the first time Mat’s seen it happen. Fausto brushes him off like an annoying insect, plays the wife card to Mat and then goes to his room and shuts the door. “¡Idiota!” he exclaims. We know.

New?: Renata is going to cenar at the Enramada, having been invited by Helena. Enter Fausto, saying what a good time Abi had with him. Ren is so happy that Abi is happy. Fausto is definitely a changed man. Yep, no doubt about it. He tells Ren, “I love you so much, and I’ve waited my whole life to have you love me that way.” This is the side of Fausto that I like, when he gets his scam on and is willing to say or do whatever in his own interest (don’t worry, not a quality I would admire in real life), not the desperate old man trying to seduce a child. Another aside: It seems Fausto had successfully kept Helena and Renata separated for about 25 years. Does he know that now that they’re friends, they talk about him? I’m sure that’s exactly why he didn’t want them getting together.

If you're in Mexico City June 14 you can hear your BLOG MOM sing in the Yiddish version of "American Idol" !!! Also - recommendations?

I am a finalist in the Yiddish songwriting contest called Der Yidisher Idol (or, in Spanish, Der Idisher Idol). They are flying me down to Mexico City to sing in the finals, a concert on June 14 at 6 pm! If you're around you can come! It's at Comunidad Bet-El (click for the map, you must search the location as "Bet Hajaim Comunidad Bet-El"). Click the poster to see a larger version.

I will be arriving in town a couple days earlier. I have never been in Mexico before. Any suggestions in Mexico City - attractions, restaurants?

If you want to preview the song I'm singing, here I am with a couple of the members of my band Mappamundi, singing it the day I finished writing it! There are subtitles and the song expresses my world view completely.

It would be fun to meet somebody while I'm there...

La Sombra del Pasado #68 5/21/15

As I usually do , I'm skipping right to the new. And I might make heavy use of the RPC (Recapper's Privilege Card) tonight along with some scene combining.

Severiano(Sev) grabs Sim/Viv by the hair and drags her out to the street. He throws her out of the house and tells her never to come back. He tells her to go back to San Miguel or wherever the hell she wants to go. When she begs to at least be allowed to get her things. Sev reminds her that he paid for all her things. He throws money at her and tells her that all he pay for is her bus fare. (Now, I'm thinking this a pretty public scene. Are people in SL just so afraid of him that they wouldn't dare comment on it? This is perfect material for the gossip capital of the word, don't you think?) Sev gets in his truck and drives away, leaving Sim to snivel on the sidewalk.

Lola is surprised to see Irma at the shop. Irma felt she needed to keep busy so she wouldn't think about Abelardo. Irma knows that time will cure her pain...or she'll at least get accustomed to it. Lola tells her that her abuela always says: "Al borrego trasquilado, Diosito le mide el frío." (I can't easily find a quick translation, but basically God won't give you more than you can take. Literally to the sheared sheep, God takes considers the cold for him….He won't make it too cold for the sheared sheep. I'm sure there's some fascinating agricultural history behind it.) Irma asks about why Lola is there and when Lola explains about having to see someone, Irma convinces her to spill the beans. Irma seems shocked by the news Sim was actually Lola's mom.

La Sombra del Pasado #67 - Wed 5/20 - More cryin' and lyin'

Aldonza finally gets escorted out of Cris' cell.

Per Mel: since Sev is out of town, Soletario hasn't been sold yet.  Emmanuel is prepared to go to Severiano as soon as he's back in town to make him an offer he can't refuse.  Melesio advises him not to do it RIGHT when Sev gets back into town or it might end up backfiring.  Yeah, what with all the other stuff he'll have to deal with.

Lo Imperdonable #3 – Wednesday, May 20, 2015 – “Chance Encounters and Fast Friendships Set the Wheels in Motion For the Start of Our Love/Hate Saga”

Once he gets Sanson to calm down, Martin turns and asks Veronica if she is ok.  Their eyes lock and she smiles softly, barely giving him a glimpse of her dimples.  After the requisite several seconds of staring at each other, he takes Veronica’s hand and asks if it hurts.  She says except for the rope burn on her hand, she is fine.  She smiles again, thanks him and says he is “her hero”.  He continues staring at her.  They talk briefly about her over-confidence in handling Sanson.  Vero’s friend Mariana runs up to ask if she is ok.  Martin turns and introduces himself to her, but just as Mariana is about to tell him Vero’s name, the tour guide rudely interrupts and asks if they can continue their tour, thus depriving Martin of his first chance to find out Vero’s name.

Alfredo meets Martin at the club so he can sign some important papers.  He is glad to hear that Martin wants to join the club and notes that going there and meeting new people, like the girl with the dark hair he just saw him with, will help distract him and raise his spirits.  Martin smiles and turns, wistfully glancing in the direction where Vero headed off with Mariana, then saying to his friend:  “Yes, she is very beautiful.  She made a big impression on me…..But now I can only think about one woman, the one responsible for my brother’s death.  That’s why I came to this club, to get close to the Prado Castelos….To avenge my brother’s death.”  (Despite a lack of storm clouds, we hear another lightning strike.  “El cirquero” Mejia strikes again!!!!)

Amores con trampa #38 and #39 5/20/15 and 5/21/15

Have we had a slow episode yet?? Every night seems action-packed! Jarifa will keep us up to date with all the details. Look for her recap in the comments.



Que Te Perdone Dios Capitulo 85- The Life-counseling Club opens its door's - Highlights

Schoolwork has been a dime and it's getting late around here so i will put up the highlights :

  • Diego has been injured badly as his  wounds mark the name "Satan" all over the place ( I mean seriously the slash and brash scene was extremely violent,  Faust just can't get the Karma of Dios any sooner). Fortunately the fast & furious Max & Abi arrive at the scene. Abi would like to report to the only god-forsaken authority available in town , Barragan but Diego refused.  Max brought the soon - to- be -  retired Mel  ( But not before Mel thought Max came to him  for Lucio's salvation) for help & Diego slips to Mel that the one who made holy turkeys out of him was none other than  Faust. Diego promises that he shall become the jury- judge- executioner  against the Feisty Reptile!

  • Renata has just shared her life haunting experience with Helena& Simona shocked to all ears as Ren mutters at last " Abi's NOT my goddaughter, she's my daughter for Christ's sake! "  Of course our two lovely women just about experienced the same things in their lives so they decide to focus on consoling Ren instead of raising barrels & flags, good friends i must say . Ren informs Ele & Sim that her dad was nothing but short of an ogre who has caused her daunting pain  cause she profoundly loved a peon but the peon is now dead as bonkers  ( I don't know why Ele & Sim are complaining , least they don't  have to pay child support to anyone well atleast not yet. They are not in the same lucky category as Malaria who only lives to extort )  We also don't have shortage of mother of the year speeches in this episode in order to make Ren feel better ( I admit some speeches almost moved me to tears but no action is getting old fast and i truly hate the fact that  Ren's still blind .)  Also later on a bench  in a church  Ren counsels Ele to meet some love too ,  Barragan is the perfect candidate  but Ele refuses because  the calamity of their pasts would only serve to doom them.  She also learns that Pab was Bar's son, responding with pity

  • Pat went to look for Ren at the hacienda but Faust invited him to take a drink instead to have a little conversation. I don't remember correctly but i think Faust was quite gleeful at the thought of Pat boinking his wife ( This romance is tearing my mind , just give us a real love story already. It's like we have close to no happy couples in this novela cause endless depression , unrequited love  , money- hoeing,  lying  & pretending must be  the motto of life in this mugroso town seriously the most happy person in this novela is Meliton who is Pro Herbalife  yet doesn't smoke weed)  . FACT : This town lacks Jesus!

La Sombra del Pasado, Capitulo 66, 05-20-2015.

Recap courtesy of HellaShelle

Here’s a quick and dirty recap, so ppl can talk. I’ll try to submit a clean, more detailed one later.

A furious Candela tells Simoneta to have Sev call her when he gets back. Sim has the nerve to look confused when Cande hangs up on her, even though she pretty much just told the woman that she’s her husband’s mistress.

Renato wants Silvia to know that he wants her to be a partner in the business, not just an employee, but if their past will be a problem, she should say so now. She’s kind of doubtful about the whole plan. It sounds good, but unnecessarily complicated what with basing themselves in SL rather than DF just Because of Aldonza! She tells Renato he’s not in love, he’s obsessed. Renato says he’s holding on to his slim hope regardless and he doesn’t want to change.

Lo Imperdonable #2 – Tuesday, May 19, 2015 - “From Oaths of Vengeance to Love at First Sight: Martin’s Heart Prepares to Run the Gamut of Emotions”

We start where we left off – with Martin at his brother’s graveside, in the pouring rain, his raw emotions a mix of profound grief and even deeper rage, screaming, asking his brother to give him the name of the woman who took his life, then swearing to him that he will discover the name of that woman, that he will follow the trail of the Prado Castelos, and that once he finds her….that woman will SUFFER.  (Cue another lightning strike and more ominous choir music.)  Martin slumps onto his brother’s grave and cries uncontrollably, while we see flashbacks of him proudly watching his younger brother (the only family he had) graduating from college with honors.

At the Prado Castelo’s sprawling finca on the outskirts of Mexico City, his nana is happy “el niño” Emiliano is back and remarks that the family is once again complete. They all decide it’s time to break out the champagne and celebrate his return.  Virginia wastes no time invading Emi’s personal space and telling him they’ll have to go party at a few new clubs.  He gently moves Virginia’s wandering hands aside and tells her there will be plenty of time for that, though he is clearly not interested.  Then he turns to Veronica and says what he really wants to do is go horseback riding the next morning.  His mom (who looks WAY YOUNGER than him) suggests they ride in a car instead, because poor sickly Virginia can’t ride horses much.  Emiliano quickly nixes the idea, and Virginia reassures him she will be fine riding a horse.

Lo Imperdonable, Monday, 5/18/15, Ep. 1: The Heart of Darkness

The men steer the flat, open boat down the calm river flanked by amazing cascades and lush green expanses.  The slender man, the only one not rowing, spots a gorgeous snake coiled around a tree on the shore.  He takes a handwritten letter from his pocket and glances at it.

A lovely, smiling girl – Verónica – rides an equally lovely (and probably smiling) white horse.  

Make Whoopee!
Jorge and Salma snuggle in bed.  If this were the sixties, they would be lighting cigarettes right now.

But on the River...
The sky turns gray and menacing, the water turbulent.  Lightning flashes in the sky.

If you can't have them, frame them for murder! La Sombra Del Pasado #65 05/18/2015

This was a hard episode for me to sit through, I have a hard time watching tv/movies where someone dies and last night's episode just about did me in, below you'll find the recap but with less of the usual snark.

Aldonza gives Renato instructions to stop the investigation into who burned down her apartment, she does not want to cause more pain to the Lagos family. Renato agrees and later calls the detective working the case to tell him that they want the matter dropped. Renato will also be going back to umm is the town Santa Lucia? Gah, it's only Tuesday and my brain is fried!

Later in the episode the dream team (that's what I'm calling Pato, Silvia and Renato) lease the house where they will open up their office, they will also be living there, which is pretty cool because that house looks awesome.

Amores con trampa #36 and #37 5/18/15 and 5/19/15

It's another week with the Carmonas...and it's also finals week for me. I still have some exams to grade, so the recap will be short and sweet. I hope you all don't mind (and don't mind filling in where needed.)

I'm doing lots of scene combining tonight!

Isa threatens to turn Beto in for kidnapping. Facundo grabs her phone and tells Beto to scram! Facundo assures Isa that if Rocio is with Beto, she is well taken care of. Isa takes the opportunity to tell Fac that she loves him. She asks if he didn't feel anything when they kissed each other? He reminds her that SHE kissed HIM and no, he didn't feel anything. When he looks at her, he is afraid. She's a bruja(witch) and evil. She's worse than carne de puerco(pig meat)...and he apologizes to the animals for comparing her to them. After he leaves Isa snivels that she wants to change her cold and calculating heart and that Facundo is the only person that can help her do that.
