Vino el Amor, #136, Friday Apr 28, 2017: Cell Phone of Doom II

Sorry, Lisa's phone. We liked you. But we like Perla's phone better. Because sometimes the sequel is better than the original.

Grace's phone says "UNKNOWN," and she doesn't take the call. She says it's probably a vendor for the wedding and she can't deal with any more of those calls today. (Do a lot of reputable businesses like to show up as "UNKNOWN" on caller ID? I doubt it. UNKNOWN means Rachel from Card Services, or one of her friends. If it's important, they leave a message!)

David takes the liberty of picking up and is surprised to hear Juan. "Why the hell are you calling Graciela?" David asks. "Why don't you ask her?" replies Juan. But clever, vestless David says he won't take that bait a second time! Juan says he has something to work out with Grace. David tells Juan to leave her alone. "You don't know what you're doing," Juan says. David warns Juan that the police are closing in. Juan says he'll resurface when David least expects it.

Grace is grateful to David and "admits" that Juan has called her multiple times, always from a different number (how can she tell, if it's unknown... never mind...) and that's why she didn't want to pick up. He tells her that Juan's a coward and won't come here. With dewy eyes, Grace says, "for the first time in my life, I feel protected." (Maybe she should try a different deodorant.) "I will always protect you and my whole family," he promises. Grace is afraid Juan will do something to David. David says no he won't, and if he calls again, tell me. She SWEARS that she will.

Piloto #38 4.27.17: In Which Yolanda Sets a Plan in Motion...

• Santamaria is pissed that he has a mole in his battalion and orders Caicedo to watch him closely but don’t reveal that they know about the grenades. Caicedo agrees and asks if he needs anything else. Santamaria sends him away but Yolanda reminds Santamaria that they still need supplies to treat his wound. Caicedo offers to go into town and Santamaria agrees but asks that he keep things quiet because no one in town needs to know about the attack or the intoxication. Caicedo nods and Santamaria then asks him to send over all the squad leaders. Caicedo nods again and leaves. Once alone, Yolanda attends to Santamaria’s wounds with alcohol while they wait.
• The Lucio man in Altamirano call Oscar to let him know the job was a success but Rosalba won’t shut up and keeps insisting that she’s Estela. Oscar asks the man to describe the woman and Oscar realizes the woman they have is Estela. He orders the man to lock Estela up good and watch her until he receives further instructions. The man agrees and Oscar hangs up. Zulima chides he for kidnapping the wrong woman, especially because Yolanda hates Estela, but Oscar reminds her that it’s the only leverage they have at the moment. Zulima then asks if Salvador called to inform them of the Yolanda situation but Oscar tells her they haven’t heard anything yet.

Vino el Amor #135 (Univision 124); Thursday April 27, 2017: Vino el Chantaje (Blackmail)


Repeated scene: The Bodega’s reorganization and new assignments.

There was a musical montage of what appears to be time passing. People are working, Carito taking care of Bobby, Tano receiving texts from Fernanda, Susan and Ramón meeting with David, successes at the SB Vineyard, David disinterested in the wedding, León making plans, Lil staring at a photo of Gutierrez, Ramon and Marta walking hand in hand, Susan and Cesar, and Juan with Perla looking very unhappy.

After the montage is over, the heading is “Months later.” So we have a time jump here.

La Piloto #37 4.26.17: In Which Yolanda Confirms (Again) that Men Are Despicable...

• In Choco, Yolanda and Santamaria walk around the tents where the intoxicated are being nursed. Rubio thinks it was the fish they had at lunch but Yolanda thinks it was all the alcohol they drank yesterday. Either way, she’s not a nurse so she doesn’t know what else to give them, not that they have any medicine at the base even if she did. Santamaria insists they do something, anything, to not lose soldiers, so Yolanda suggests they bring IV bags. Rubio reveals that they ran out of IV bags and the medicine arrives tomorrow so Yolanda tells him to fill some bags up with water and salt and make makeshift IV bags. Rubio obliges.
• Lizbeth is pissed that she is being held in the Villa Antigua police station despite the fact that she collaborated with the police. Raul assumes it’s the protocol until a judge orders her release. Garrido comes and tells them that the judge ordered Lizbeth be sent to a prison in Mexico City. Raul and Lizbeth remind him that they had a verbal deal with Dave and Monica but Garrido explains that Monica has disappeared and Dave has no jurisdiction in Villa Antigua. Garrido laments her situation but there is nothing he can do so they open prison door and take her away.

Vino el Amor #134 (Univision 123); Wednesday, April 26, 2017: Cooperating Together


We begin where we left off yesterday with Juan’s phone call to Lilian and Lilian telling Juan that she will do everything in her power to destroy him. He warns her by reminding her that she was once in cahoots with him embezzling from David. She says, “Oh well that was a long time ago.” Juan says it still matters because he kept records of all the transactions they did together. He says something like, “Why, did you think I was some idiot?” Before he hangs up he tells Lilian that she had better stay quiet if she does not want to ruin herself and her daughter, she’d better not mess with him!

La Piloto #34, 4-21-2017: Escape Is Not An Option--Until It Is

Parte 1~~

Monica informs DEA Dave that the hidden police/DEA agent saw activity at Aero Tours.  He says somebody came across a big bag in the woods but couldn’t identify whoever was in it.

Narcocienda Big Shot calls Oscar and informs him that Col. SantaMarina still has Yolanda jailed at the military base out in the jungle and yeah, she’s well-guarded.  He won’t stop until he’s gotten to her and killed her himself.   Yoli’s remembering Col. S&M’s goading her about why John, who she’d even give her life for, has left her on her own and not bothered to rescue her up to now.  She figures it’s now time for plan B, C, and or D.

Vino el Amor, #131, Friday Apr 21, 2017: Between a Rock and Another Rock

Lilian tells Marta, "you're a hussy just like your damned daughter!" This brings out Marta's little fists of fury. Bobby walks in and asks what's happening. Marta tells him everything's fine! David comes in and wants to know what's going on. Lil pulls herself up and says that Marta attacked her, she doesn't know why. David wants an explanation.

Bobby is very upset about what he just witnessed. Lilian says that Marta is a savage and was screaming at her like a crazy person. Marta yells at her not to lie. She demands that Lil tell the truth. (Marta, if YOU would tell the truth once in a while, it would be better for everyone. Like that time she overheard Lilian in the coffee shop.) David sends Marta to the employee house.

Alone with David (and Bobby), a trembling Lilian repeats that Marta came in angry and crazy. Then she announces that the sheriff was killed, and starts to cry. Although her grief is real, it also appears as though she is putting on a little show for David and Bobby as she mentions again that Marta came in and attacked her. Bobby tries to comfort her. David pulls Bobby away and tells him to watch TV (which is probably being pre-empted with coverage of the sheriff's murder). David says to Lil in English, "I'll be right back."
