Barrera May 12 Part One
Apparently they have "aged" the first generation of Barrera by prescribing glasses for nearly all of them. Victor has a grey beard.
Maite and Elvira (looking much better as an EX-whore) are holding Veronica's dolls and missing her. Maite finds Magdalena's letter to Adolfo in the doll Vera's head and realizes Veronica and Valeria are half-sisters. She tells Victor. They wonder why Magda never revealed Veronica's true identity but then realize it was probably out of fear for Jacinta. They are glad she is far from Jacinta's influence.
Unibrow and Andres have a conversation about him missing an appointment somewhere. Andres lets his dad think it is because of a woman. In reality Andres was out playing toreador.
Manola and Federico are still doing the horizontal bop after all these years. They are in bed and for the first time she's not wearing her white cap! Federico's hair is greying; this look becomes him I think, he looks better than ever. He talks about how alike he and Rodrigo are in character.
Later, he and Jacinta are outside talking about buying horses. This reminds her of Pedro and what a great horseman he was. Federico wishes he could have known him. Jacinta says she will never forget the night he died and has a flashback. Jacinta reminisces about her favorite horse, "Shake." Federico squirms. Remember, this is the horse he poisoned way back when to make Adolfo look bad. (I can't remember if the horse died from this stunt.)
Valeria and Juanita are walking to class. One of them mentions how odd it is that Veronica talks to herself all the time. The other thought it was from the next dorm room. "No, the voices come from our room." "Maybe she has multiple personalities," they joke.
Veronica, as Vera, is in a store trying on a slutty dress. It looks great on her.
At Gustavo's huge, modern dairy Rodrigo is in the office. He should be working but is surfing the net for a ticket to Aspen. His hair is slicked back and he slouches so we know he is a slacker and a playboy. The good worker Omar comes in and scolds him for surfing the net instead of working. Gustavo enters and Rodrigo pretends to be a good employee.
In Canada there is a nun who looks and acts a lot like Veronica's "Violetta" personality. This must confuse the hell out of Veronica. (Now that I think of it, maybe the nun IS Violetta and is only in Veronica's head. I'm confused.) Anyway, Sister Violetta tells Veronica she shouldn't lie. Veronica switches personalities from Vera to Veronica and can't remember saying goodbye to Valeria and Juanita who have left for Aguascalientes. She sees "Vera's" suitcase on the bed with "Vera's" clothes and wonders to whom they belong.
Daniel finds Andres's toreador sword in the closet and scolds him for not giving up the habit. Andres says bullfighting is his passion. They argue about keeping this info from Unibrow. Daniel suggests that at the very least Andres do a better job of hiding his stuff.
Update: Apparently the nun I referred to as Sister Violetta really exists because she is the nun who speaks to the other girls about Veronica's lies. Sorry about the confusion. Carry on Jean...
I too noticed the eyeglass thing, something in the water must make their eyes go bad! :)
It's weird, this novela has raced through the plot lines so far. We'll have to see if it is going to slow down now. I hope they resolve Veronica's multiple personalities soon. It's going to get old real soon.
I have been wanting to ask this question a long time, in general- is there a length of hair requirement in these shows?
3 feet or more of hair = good woman
1 foot or less hair = bad woman
In period shows I understand, they all had long hair-Is there a hair fetish I am not aware of?
It's funny, I've heard that saying all my life, "A woman's hair is her crowning glory". :) The reason why this question always burned in my mind is even the older women have majorly long hair. On the novela Contra & Viento (Or something like that title-I only watched once)a woman maybe in her 70's had hair down to the middle of her back-it was her's too, not a wig from what I could tell. Here in the U.S., after a certain age the shorter the hair gets. Even though this guideline seems to be changing.
Big boobs,little waist and long hair seem to be the prize in almost every society. >sigh<
Then Fredrico visited me in my dream last night. He was still bad, but... he was good.
Marie, my name gets misspelled all the time. No big deal, the only variation I don't really care for is Syliva. Say it out loud.
