La Gata #14- Thu 9/18 - La Mentira
Jarocha finds Gata on a hill of trash. Gata tells her it's over, but at least she has her baby. Fela joins them as Gata's saying she won't leave her baby with someone like Rita. Gata tells Fela she'll probably go crazy like her soon. Won't that be fun. Fela thinks their two babies will be like siblings. Jarocha drags Gata off, telling her to chill.
Gata cries in Jarocha's shack about how badly they treated her and how she'll never forgive them. She says the baby is her only joy, a baby that's entirely hers, and someone who will call her "mom" and always be with her. It's all she'll ever had in her life and no one will be able to take this baby away from her. Um…talk to Fela about that sometime.

La Malquerida #18: 9/17/14: The Vows Were Paused, Were They Restarted? Enquiring Minds Want to Know!
Shall we begin?
Everyone is gathered at the Church. Cris arrives on the arm of Juan Carlos. Este isn't there yet.
German and Ale arrive and German introduces her to the priest, as his novia, and oh, noes, this is the same priest she asked for Santuary, and both are quite surprised. He won't say anything.
Perls and Swine, and unfortunately Swine is now awake. Perls tells him to close his eyes and when he looks he has a cow. Perls is in a red dress with fake Perls and she looks way tacky. Oh, the horror. Perls thought she looked fab and now she is a bit peeved. Swine makes her look in the mirror to get a look at herself and she cries and goes.
Cris is very worried about Este not being there, because he could have had an accident on the way to the wedding. Este finally comes and they smile at each other.
Juan Carlos walks Cris up the aisle. Carmen and Andres have also arrived and gone into the Church. The ceremony begins , the priest starts the vows and Este is staring at Acacia. When the priest asks Este does he take this woman to be his wife, not. a. word! The priest has to repeat himself and Cris tries to get his attention. Everyone just stares at him and he finally comes to himself and he acceptos! Wew, for a moment there it was getting mighty tense. They are pronounced man and wife, besos and go out of the Church. They are gentley pelted with flower petals and everyone calls for besos. Acacia has one strange look on her face.
Now it's time for photos and that's all I saw.
Here is the rest of the recap, provided by our Vivi:

Lorenza is sending Virginia to Italy with "Tia" Eugenia (Monica's mom).
Centavito tells Esme (who's holding Principe! Drink!) that he heard from Virginia that Pablo's missing her something awful. Centavito says Pablo's parents have been trying to keep them apart. As he asks about her illness, Mariano arrives.
Suddenly, Augie has guards…and they come in and hold Damian while Augie punches him and then points a gun at him. Damian calls his bluff and tells him to go ahead, call the cops, 'cause he's got plenty to say. Augie threatens to have him thrown in prison and calls the cops to tell them to send someone over. Damnit. There goes his law degree.

Wednesday, September 17, 2014
Mi corazon es tuyo #43... the slap heard 'round the world... and Leon finally 'suelta la sopa' to Fanny... and we get the typical reaction from Fanny and her rigid dad... (act before thinking)
Fernando with the 5 younger kids… group hug…
Lo Nuevo: Ana apologizing to Diego, with excuse she is a ‘poquis’ (tiny bit) stressed with the debt… he admits there are things he should not intervene on… will do (not). Diego takes a bit payback in the end of the scene by hugging her … HARD.
At mechanic shop, Johnny and Jenn are in a car, he gets a bit eye-googly at her, even calls her a ‘taco’. He tells her it was not until now he sees her as a woman. She is like ‘my space… your space’. He claims she was the one that told him to look at other women. She says ‘but I did not mean ME!!’
At mansion, Ana and Luz choose a picture (can Ana make a dress by just looking at a picture? That is usually a skill only expert seamstresses can have) and begin working on the dress for Alicia.
Leon calls Fanny, she hesitates a lot but in the end agrees to see him somewhere not at his house. It is really important. He is really pensive, probably anticipating the break-up.
At club, Johnny again leans on Jen, she repeats she did not mean herself when she asked him to look at others… then Dana comes by and Jenn says ‘just look around you’. He turns around and Dana is right beside him.
Manuela confesses to Bruno that she followed him, he is very entertained by her saying the guy he was with looked like a thug. She admits she worries about him… again he is very happy/entertained by all of it. Manuela says Ana told her that Bruno might have to pay someone… Bruno says ‘curiosity killed the cat. Would you believe that I, Bruno, would do something fishy? Don’t you trust me?’
At her bedroom, Isa is running out of patience. YoMama, the voice of her reason this time, says you better get a fuse longer than 3 days…
Fernando still helping Sebas and talks to him about Pi being a decimal that never ends… as infinite as the love I feel for you. (Ana has heard this and is very happy to see them so good together). Fernando goes on to explain decimals to Sebas. Sebas seems to be very grateful and loving as well.
Isa runs into Ana in hallway and provokes her saying she is an incompetent ‘na-ka’… don’t understand why he keeps you … ‘I wonder why’ replies Ana… Isa insists demanding Ana to look up to her. When Ana tries to walk away Isa grabs her arm hard and keeps on provoking Ana until Ana swings a ‘tronada’ slap on Isa’s cheek. Isa freezes, so does Ana.
Ana tries to apologize, isa just tells her ‘you just committed the worst mistake of your life’. After Isa leaves, Fanny comes over to a very anxious Ana who thinks now she will be fired for sure. Fanny agrees with her that slapping Isa went over the line. Ana gets Fanny to swing her arms with ‘cancel! Cancel! Cancel!’ and praying for her sake. Ana tells Fanny Fernando is helping Sebas with homework. Fanny happy her dad is fulfilling his promises he made to her. Fanny wants to talk to her dad about Leon. Ana wants to know what Fanny knows. Fanny is afraid what Leon has to tell her is really bad. Otherwise, why the secrecy?

Hasta el Fin del Mundo Recap #23
Sofia asks why Chava hasn't gotten married and he says something but is interrupted by Pato who is now on the phone with Sofia and he appears to be genuinely considerate until Sofia mentions Chava is with her and the harp that was his heart is ripped at the strings. (It's funny that Chava is in the background cleaning while she is talking.)
Pato is being an ass and Silvie tells him to cool his jets; she thought was better than this.
Chava has set up the fireplace and he says he thinks it's weird seeing Sofia in the kitchen cleaning and not in the Ripollery giving orders. Sofia says she knows more than giving orders they bond some more. He thinks he is distracting her but he isn't; she sits him down and they drink a te de francia.
Silvie notes Greta is a woman who knows what she's doing; Paot better watch out. He admits Silvie is right and he must be pro-active. Silvie says it's good he hasn't lost Sofia. Pato and her plot some more when he says he is ready to fake it up and win Greta the bad ol' way.
Chava says Sofia would be a good racecar driver and some talk leads to Chava suggesting that she learns to drive. She doesn't see it but he says life is like driving a car and if she learns to do so, she will have a better hold on her life. She agrees and they bond over driving real soon; she is nervous about being in the driver's seat but Chava reassures her she will be fine and instructs her hands-on how to move the stick. They're driving!
Paco gets off the bus and starts bitches about Irma having left the shoppe closedand here comes Lupe in an interesting printed dress to talk to Paco; she has come for cookies that Marisol loves but Irma put the locks on wrong! They work together and open the store. Lupe is about to leave but Paco opens his heart, closes the shoppe again and invites her to his house to chat over coffee.
Sofia is having a blast driving!
Irma and Alexa haunt and roam along the TV screen and Armie's mind while Alexa (clad in Alfred Htichcock-esque Birds ensemble) herself is lamenting to Fausto about Arm. He as usual is the voice of reason and says Armie is just doing his job. Fausto hears a ringing of the doorbell and it's none other than the one and only Alan Duncan! He is very hasty in speech and Fausto side-comments about him (I don't blame him.)
Armie is doing a silly dance which reminds me of a chicken when Fausto comes in and asks him what he is doing; Armie says his situation is Alexa because she will ask for something and he will respond to her. but it will never be the right way. Armie is about to quit when Fausto tells him not to since he is needed there.
Paco and Lupe talk at home as do Fausto and Greta (he interrupts her art'n'music'n'scrapbook time but has hesitations at first) in similar formats. (There is mentioning of Paco's daughter who is a lawyer BTW and we see Paco getting passionate about who deserves Lupe and who doesn't. Also Greta has a flashback about having a sad.)
Alan wastes no time in giving ViewerVille a reason to hate him as he flamboyantly yanks and screeches in and on Alexa's hair/ear due to financial BS when Armie comes in and gives him a good punching. Alexa spits out that Alan is her BF and Armie looks devastated.
Paot has a bad-ass moment with shades like Magnum PI and logically-present background music while Chava and Sofia bond automovilistically. She loves driving now! Pato sees Sofi's car and cusses out Chava. Sweet Chofia Jubilee when Pato's car thrusts almost into their car and he comes out to scold the Chofia we know and love. Just pure confrontation. BTW the car is stuck in the mud.
More Lupe/Paco sweetening which I have come to love (he actually says good things about her unlike nasty things he says in general :) Just as she is leaving he suggests for her to try and talk with Marisol since he knows what it's like to lose something precious.
Fausto lets Greta know about Alan being over.
Lupe is going know and the 2 thank each other but Paco remains crying.
Alexa asks what gives Armie the right to punch guests of the house? (Well he was hurting you Lexi.) Armie and Alan fend off their insults.
Chava and Pato (well just Pato) humorously attempt to get the car out of the mud and it results in Pato covered in well you know.
La Malquerida #17: 9/16/14: Going To The Chapel, and They're Gonna Get Married
Shall we begin?
Ale and German go to the restaurant where his paintings are displayed. Acacia and Ulises join them. Acacia says when they go back for Ale to talk to her Mom Cris, she promises Cris will help her. Ale isn't so sure.
Ale, Cris and Acacia are back at the hacienda. Ale says German is such a great guy. Now Cris wants to know about Ale's life. At first Ale is very hesitant, but Cris is quick and smart and says this guy raped you didn't he? Cris wants her to go the police and report him, but Ale is too afraid still. Cris also suggests that Ale go into therapy, but Ale says the only therapy she needs is German, poor girl!
Cris and Esteban kiss and Acacia has to look away.
Luisa is doing better at school and seems she's made some friends.

Tuesday, September 16, 2014
La Gata # 12 – Tue. 9-16-14 – Augie and Rita: a Partnership Specializing in Making Bad Situations Worse
Next Time, Try Hiring Professionals
The paid thugs break into Rita’s shack and wrestle La Gata, bragging “We’re getting paid a lot!” She begs to know who sent them and continues fighting. A quick flash of Augustin shows him smugly claiming no sacrifice is too great for your child. The kidnappers push the Gata blanket-burrito into their car, but find Damian standing in their way.
As the getaway cars weaves through the dump, Damian whistles for his buddies. They jump into the cart and cut the car off at the pass. The camera cuts away again, this time picturing our pure Pablo strolling the campus, talking to buddy Henry and two attractive co-eds. They think it’s time for a little fun. Back at the dump, the trash warriors take a stand in front of the car. They open the trunk, lifting out Esme, removing her gag, and telling her to calm down while the thugs escape.
Augustin reams out his hirelings for their failure. Lorenza overhears and asks Augustin what he ordered? Better for it to stay unknown, he replies. Damian, Carlos, and the gang share their pride in being a family and protecting one another.

Mi Corazon es Tuyo #42 16 Sep 2014... Fernando finds his parent cap but is still missing his spine and 'co$)#*$&es'
Jenn and Johnny, she suggests he finally get over Ana (she is now seized by Don Fernando’s brother, and he is good eye candy, besides very nice and polite to her) and find a gal who will make him happy.
Diego goes to the Chicago and asks Ino-Doro how much Ana owes him. Ino-Doro learns Diego is Fernando’s brother. Ino-Doro says Ana is my golden egg hen, when she dances the Chicago gets packed full, and I ain’t letting her go. Diego realizes and tells Ino-Doro in his face that he is exploiting Ana. Ino-Doro just calls on his guys to get a bit closer into Diego’s space. Diego says better call them off me… Ino-Doro warns Diego to behave … for Ana’s sake. (ouch!)
Jenn tells Johnny he is not ugly (Feo)… he is just … different. Jenny jokes to Johnny about seemingly having issues with Ana having told him he can stay there. Jen says she will interview for a job at a car shop later, a guy friend of Nico’s. Johnny says no way. Jen says thanks to all you taught me. Maybe he can hire you too. Jen would convince Nico to put in a good word for him…. Paid with kisses, of course.
And we finally get Enrique Basurto on screen. He calls Fanny ‘little girl’. She is a bit abnoxious to him, to tell you the truth. Turns out Enrique and Betty know each other and she seems to have a crush on him. He is also glad to see her again. Fanny tells Fernando on phone that EB is there, she tells EB Fer is ready for him. EB walks in. Fanny tells Betty EB is ‘super –what comes after W… meaning X’.
At the mansion, Ana receives a very nice arrangement of roses (orange, fuscia and pink, with small lilies). Of course they are from Diego. The delivery guy tries to make a pass at Ana and she basically shuts the door on his rear end.
‘I could say you are the most beautiful woman… but I would have to skip over all the rest of your qualities… great personality, generosity, patience and smarts… so many virtues would not fit in this card. All my love, Diego.’
She smiles staring at them once she puts them on top of the piano.
At Costena offices, Fernando (btw, he is the President) is yelling at someone doing a report for him. He has to apologize to EB as EB walked in. Fer says Isa was working at the VP role and she recommended him. His resume is excellent and fits the needs of this business. Fer says he demands commitment to the job. EB makes the mistake to say the receptionist, Fanny, is not really efficient. EB says the girl is also a bit inexperienced and insolent/petulant. Fer laughs it off and then says ‘she is my daughter!’ we hear EB grumble to himself ‘swallow me, ground’ (tragame tierra is a very common phrase in Spanish to mean they would like to be transported anywhere BUT there… sort of the ‘wanna get away?’ slang). Betty tells Fanny she does not want Fernando to know she knows EB, so she sends Fanny with the coffees.
At Leon’s apt, Tamara finds a copy of their marriage certificate. She asks herself ‘what face will Fanny put when she sees our marriage certificate?’

Hasta El Fin Del Mundo #21 9/16/14 Pre-Nup? We Don't Need No Stinkin' Pre-Nup!
God Bless America!
La Gata #11 - Mon 9/15 - La Correspondencia
Carrrrlos comes looking for Virginia and thankfully, when she pulls up in front of the house, she's alone!
Gata cries in Fela's lap about Pablo leaving. Fela is sure he's never coming back, 'cause that's what dudes do. They say they'll come back, but they just leave you lonely and it drives you crazy. She flashes back to sitting with Silencioso, sans beard, in the living room of Casa Negrete, which was far less decorated than it is now, with the baby, and having Silencioso dragged out. Fela thinks it's better to be crazy and take her baby doll out for a walk. Well, sure, when reality sucks this bad…screw it!
The chauffeur is a little worried about leaving Virginia alone with Carrrrrlos, but he has more loyalty to her and Pablo than he does to Lorenza, so he has no problem leaving her for five minutes while he drives the car around the block. Carrrrrrrlos couldn't wait to see her again--harpy of a mother be damned! Virginia just beams.

The She-dog Shows Her Fangs
After overhearing Ana’s admission to Fanny that she is attracted to him, Diego sneaks off all smiles, giving himself a mental(?) high-five. Ana senses that somebody’s overheard her and Fanny’s girly chatter but is too late to catch the culprit. More slumber party activity ensues.
The next morning at breakfast, Jennifer tells Dana she’s got to get another job to help pay back the money Ana borrowed from Don Doroteo to pay for her cancer operation and therapy. She refuses to ask Don Nicolas for the cash, but accepts Dana’s suggestion to at least ask him to help her find a job. And, of course, Don Nico comes through for her. He’s got a buddy/client? that’s got a shop fixing luxury cars. He’ll get the guy to give her a job—as a mechanic???? (More likely as a receptionist, but either way, unless it’s high class hooking, dealing drugs or winning the Irish Sweepstakes, there’s no way in Hell Jens is ever gonna to pay off that kind of loan in this life or the next!)

Hasta El Fin Del Mundo #20: 9/12/14: Dinners At the Ripoll House Never Go Well. Greta Tells Sofia What To Do, Or Else, Missy
Hola Amiguis! My computer has a virus, so I had to get a loaner from a friend. Here is an earworm. The Worst That Can Happen Shall we begin?
Our very wonderful Matthias is making the chocolates. He is mixing and stirring and working his tail off and the end relsult? Perfection! The poor guy is so tired he takes a seat and goes to sleep. He has a dream about winning Maestro for best chocoltier in the world. The guard comes and wakes him up and accuses him of being drunk. Matthias says shut your mouth, well, not that, but the alcohol he smells went into that wonderful chocolate bon bons he just made. He goes.
Isn't he just too lovable?
Sofia and Pato are together and she smoochies him. They are looking at those pics of Alexa. She ends up liking them and now it's on to dinner. Sofia does bring up the fact it's time to find a new Maestro. She hits on the idea that Matthias would be perfect because after all he was the Maestro's disciple. Pato isnt' so sure, and we know why dont' we? No Maestro and Ripoll goes down the tubes. He doesn't want to think about all this right now.

La Gata #10 9/12/14 La Separación
- Not-so-Ernesto (thanks, Susanlynn!) threatens Albecinia (or whatever her name is.) If she keeps advising Esme on how to avoid his pervy attentions, he's going to send her to the archives. He thinks she's jealous of the young hotties.
- Pablo is cute, but dumb. He actually has the nerve to ask Monica to help him convince his parents to let him be with Emse. Bless his heart. Monica refuses.
- Lorenza continues to try to impose her will on Pablo and calls him a mal hijo. She tells him again it's family or Esme.
- Esme does indeed get fired after the jealous wife catches not-so-Ernesto making the moves on our feline heroine. Poor thing! She was completely innocent!
- Pablo and Virginia talk about Esme and Carlos. How did these two end up so nice???
- Emeralda wants Damian's help in registering for school.
Hasta El Fin del Mundo #19: 9/11/14: Pato's Mis Planes Continue and Lucas is One Lucky Boy!
Shall we begin?
The producer of that Chica Ripoll campaign likes Armie. She wants to know if he has ever modeled, would he like to model, he is flattered but won't. He's married.
The school principal calls the Ripoll House and the maid gives the phone to Greta, who promptly blows a gasket. Dani is not in school, skipped school. Greta yells for Fausto. Seems Chava dropped Dani off, watched her go into the school and then left. So now this is Fausto's fault. He and his freewheeling method of dealing with the girls, but especially Dani. Poor Fausto looks so bereft. Greta calls Dani's cell phone and leaves a voice mail that says come home now or else. Poor Dani is outside the police station crying. When Dani gets home, Greta chews her out and she's grounded and no cell phone or computer. She is confined to her room to study. Dani has just lost all her teen lifelines.
Chava goes to the police station and pays Lucas a visit. Chava pulls out the medallion. Lucas tells him it's his. Seems that his Papa won this medal for boxing. Lucas never knew his Papa, and this is all he has. Chava says how alike they are in many ways. Chava goes to visit the Commandante and finds out that all Lucas needs to be released from the hoosegow is for Sofia to drop the charges. Chava will pass it on to Sofia.
Sofia is going over the Ripoll campaign pictures with Alexa, Pato, and Silvana. Everyone likes them but Sofia, she feels they are a bit riskee so to speak. Now on to Thursday:
Sofia isn't liking these pics.

Shall we begin:
Jules is still questioning Norbie from yesterday about what happened the day that Alonzo had his accident at the Devil's Pass? Jules wants the truth, and it better be good, well not that, but she wants the truth. It's about all his hankering after that Hacienda Benavente and those lands, "that should have been his" in his own words, years ago. Of course he dodges and doesnt' answer.
