Amor de Barrio Discussion Page: The Past Clashes With the Present

Amor de Barrio keeps chugging along at at nice pace. Some plots could do with a little more speed but others show no signs of slowing down. Let's get into it:

Laura is saved from confessing what she tol Ariel by Rosa who got drunk off the flask Monalisa left at the house. (She already has liver problems so I wonder if a transplant is in the near future). Raul offers to put her in a rehab center.

Blanca Estela is having trouble adjusting to life on the outside. A lot of people scare but she's trying to make the best of it.

Delfina confirms with Ariel that Laura caused the stroke and tells Tamara (I don't mind this plan of attack so much because it is actually 100% true).

Laura tells Paloma that Raul is seeing the social differences between them and they might not work out regardless of the sibling thing. (I don't know where Laura gets this from since that has never mattered to Raul. He only didn't want Laura close to Edmundo because has a history of violence). Paloma suggests a blood test which Laura will do once her mom tells her the truth.

- Abel bonds with the witness he's supposed to intimidate, and the kid takes off. (With a gun?)

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 15 (May 30, 2016)

EPISODE #68 (Mon May 30)
Blanca asks Fer if she’s ever been curious of who her real father might be? Fer answers no, never. Pedro is her only father. She doesn’t know what happened in the past. The important thing in her life is the present. That’s enough for her. They talk about Don Fer and how he was then and now. Fer thinks it’s funny he thinks he can convince Pedro to forgive Carlos, when he can’t forgive Pedro for what he supposedly did to her mother. Blanca says Pedro is a saint, everyone knows it, including Amelia. Fer says if only Amelia had told her father how things really happened back then, their lives would be very different. Don Fer would have Pedro on a pedestal.
 
Carlos arrives and greets the two of them. Blanca leaves them. Carlos said he talked to Jay and he told him about Pedro getting upset because he and Fer had reconciled. Fer doesn’t know what to do. Pedro just doesn’t want them to be together. He hugs her and kisses her.  He can see it’s causing her some distress and he’s sure that if he could talk to Pedro, they could clear it all up. Fer doesn’t think it’s a good idea. He was just released that morning.

As Santiago and Ana Lucia, aka Ana Lucky, express their shared relief in finding each other again, Soledad enters the hallway. She is stir-fried-fit-to-be-tied impactada, seeing THE MAN hugging and kissing on HER DAUGHTER.  (What a waste of a good high-tail it outta town plan, eh, Sole?)

Amor De Barrio Discussion Page: Paloma & Daniel Get Together As Laura & Raul Drift Further Apart

Hello Everyone!

Here are the barrio happenings and goings of the last two days:

Monalisa brings a flask of alcohol to Rosa's house but she doesn't drink it. (It seems that losing her memory has been the best thing to ever happen to Rosa since she now sees people for what they truly are). She hides the flask in her trinket box though so she's not out of the woods yet.

The cop in charge of Rosa's case goes to the La Luciernaga in order to tell Edmundo that, while Dr. Serapio is dead, he was a patron at the club and maintained an affair with one of his workers and he intends to find out who it was. Edmundo tells the cop he doesn't know anything. When the cop leaves though, Edmundo tells Monalisa that he knows she was his lover and to be careful with what she does.

Rodrigo tries another strategy with Paloma: friendship and she agrees. He then tells Tico that he'd rather be in the friend zone for now than be out of her life completely if he pushes too hard romantically.

Sueño de amor, Ep. 57 (5.26.16) There are lies in your lips, in your hips, in your eyes, in your thighs, so much pain, you're so vain...

My big fat greek cancelled wedding tragedy
Pato ''se anduvo haciendo pato'' (was fooling around) so she could hear the conversation between Mapa and Ernesto. Esperanza said that in her house nobody lies, but is not true, because she is hurting Ricardo more hiding the truth from him than if she told him she has cancer. One day she was ready to be with him on sickness and health and suddenly she is stealing that from him
Ernesto's idea of rekindling their dream of love (only for show) so Ricardo can convince himself he is no longer wanted in her life (or what's left of it), doesn't fit Esperanza's plans. One moment looks like she takes a side with Ernesto to make Ricardo go away but then she changes back. Pato supports that idea because she thinks her father is a hero.
Choose wisely: Ernesto means more days in your life but Ricardo means more life in your days. What will it be? Die happy or die sad?

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 14 (May 23, 2016) Second Half

EPISODE #66 (Thu May 26)
A representative of Child Welfare Services, a uniformed officer and a notebook lady have shown up in the middle of Clarita and Cesar’s reception. The rep addresses Marissa and wants to speak to Carlos. She says he’s not at home, but she can speak for him. She leads them in the house. The rep states Carlos has been keeping an unaccompanied minor in the home. Marissa is cooperative. Yes, Carlos brought home a homeless youngster, but is planning to adopt him.

The rep says that is the problem. There are no papers on file so they have to take the boy to a childrens shelter. Marissa doesn’t think that should be necessary. He’s well taken care of in their home, but they will have the family lawyer file the right papers in the morning. Rep lady says that doesn’t conform to the law. They have to take him now.
 
Carlos and Fer are still standing together away from the crowd at the reception. He tells her she hasn’t said whether they are novios again or not. She laughs and tells him for good or bad, yes. Carlos questions the “bad” part. Fer says it’s just a saying, like for good or bad, she loves him, for good or bad she can’t be without him, for good or bad she accepts being his novia again. They are both glowing, radiant in the heat of love. Carlos leans over for a kiss. [Ahem—I thought I saw a little tongue action there!] He’s the happiest man in the world.

Amor De Barrio Discussion: "Golpes Que Da La Vida"

Hello Everyone!

I recently started watching Amor de Barrio and spent all this past week catching up on past episodes to be able to watch it live, hopefully with all of you.

I was pleasantly surprised by what I saw because, while this is a "traditional" novela rosa (with plenty of cliches) they are either handled in a fresh way or are revealed so quickly it never weighs down the story. I also love that both female protagonists, Paloma and Laura, are career women who go out into the world and the galanes are to brain dead insecure men who believe hearsay.

It is also the first novela in 9 years for Roberto Hernandez Vazquez, who last produced Heridas de Amor.

This is my first summary/blog so bear with me, please. This is a summary of the first 35 episodes so here goes nothing!
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Paloma Madrigal is a muchacha de barrio that recently finished her specialty in criminal law and needs to win her first case in order to get a job at a respectable law office. The case she chooses is that of Blanca Estela Bernal whom was unjustly imprisoned by Catalina Lopezreina for killing Catalina’s husband, Saul.

Catalina blamed Blanca Estela for Saul’s murder because Blanca Estela refused to tell Catalina where Saul’s lover, Dalia and her son, Rodrigo, were hiding. Blanca Estela, pregnant with Paloma, told her husband, Gustavo, everything was true when she was condemned to life in prison. She gave Paloma to Gustavo as soon as she was born WITHOUT knowing her if she gave birth to a boy or girl. Gustavo then told their children that their mom died during Paloma’s birth.

Sueño de Amor (SdA) #55. Tuesday May 24, 2016. Esperanza Makes Lying a Family Affair, Erasmo Tells the Truth

This recap was brought to you by our recapper and Patio regular, Kinomathematika! Enjoy!

Ricardo is still trying to reach Esperanza. Pedro doesn’t answer him, either. He doesn’t know what to tell the priest. Margarita goes to him asking if the bride had second thoughts. 

Esperanza is at home and says that she loves Ricardo too much to obligate him to marry someone who will die in months. She’s going to wither and wear away. I don’t want the love of my life to be witness to my deterioration. She asked Pato and Pedro forgiveness. They told her she had nothing to ask forgiveness for. She thinks she has to sacrifice herself for Ricardo. Pato tells her that Ricardo needs her, but Esperanza says that Ricardo doesn’t need someone who’s dying (moribunda). She says she’s doing it for him to be with his children and for him to be happy. Destiny wants them to be apart. She asks them to help her hide the truth. 

Pedro tells her that even though they aren’t in agreement with her plan, they will help if it calms her. She tells him to call Ricardo to tell him to come over, that she needs to talk to him alone.

Tres Veces Ana - Episodes 3 & 4

Hello everyone! While Sneaky two shoes gets a recap ready for us, here is a discussion page on episodes 3 and 4, in which we get a first kiss (!!) and find out that Soledad is darker than we thought and is somehow involved with the whole Santiago/Marcelo story line.

We also find out that Ana Lucia is not your typical TN protagonist and will not be confused by random blabbering. When Soledad spins a made up sad story of a neighbor named Sofia, after calling Ana Lucia the name of her dead daughter, Ana Lucia says it's sad, but she doesn't know how this is related to anything!
