Heridas - Monday July 24
Miranda goes to chat with her father. He wants to know how Pamela is and offers to help her out without her knowing. He says she is like another daughter for him. Miranda tells him that he is the best father in the world. Gonzalo advises Miranda to be strong tonight for the engagement of Fabricio and Florencia. He says he will be at her side sharing her suffering.
Miranda tells Tomasa that when Fabricio put the engagement ring on Florencia, she Miranda, will stop being a woman and will turn into a ghost. She would like to be like her mother and take off with the man she loves and disappear. Tomasa tells her not to say that. Her mother was a victim of Bertha just like Miranda has been.
Cesar is angry that Rebeca is going to give her wedding ring to Fabricio for his engagement to Florencia. Cesar is older and thinks it's his right to have. Ma you give everything to him! Wha! Rebeca argues that she will give Cesar an equal ring for his wife but Cesar is not having any of it. Cesar blames how Gonzalo treats him and all his problems on Faby. Faby consoles his mother while Cesar gives them both the look of death.
Miranda asks Tomasa about Bertha and her mother. Tomasa says that Bertha found out that Fernanda was in love with a man long before Fernanda knew Gonzalo. Bertha told their grandfather that Fernanda was running around with an older man who had a child. Their grandfather then made Fernanda marry the older man but not the one she loved but the one Bertha said she was seeing (Gonzalo). Gonzalo always loved Fernanda and Fernanda never mentioned the other man again. Miranda upon hearning this sad story concludes that Fernanda kept loving the first man and that is why Fernanda abandoned the girls and Gonzalo. How Miranda would like to do that with Fabricio she moans.
Gonzalo calls a conference with all his daughters and Tomasa. He says gracias a Tomasa for taking care of his girls, and loving them as if they were hers. Tomasa says she will always be here as long as they need her. Gonzalo says this might be the last time they are together alone. He probably hasn't been the father they needed but he was the father that he could be. He would give his life for each of the girls. Forgive me if I haven't always given you the attention that you deserved. It happens. But I will always be with you. I only ask that we stay united and that we try to be happy. Renata asks why are you telling us this? Gonzalo answers that I need to confess that your mother didn't disappear like you think. The girls speak up saying that Bertha told us that she left us for another man. Gonzalo gets mad that Bertha told them that then says that's it if that's what she told you. Florencia says that for years they have all suffered their fathers being betrayed. Florencia then looks at Miranda weirdly realizing what she is saying sitting next to Miranda. Then she says Pardon I'm the last person who should be talking about this. Renata wants to know who the man was and what his name was plus why hasn't he remarried. Gonzalo says he doesn't know the mans name. He also admits to still being married to Fernanda and to still loving her. Ah oh!
Fernanda argues to her friend Amparo that one who loves does not cause as much damage that Gonzalo has done her. Fernanda believes it would have been better to have died in that moment than to live the agony of so many years. Her friend says think what he felt to find another man kissing you in the hacienda! He should of given me the opportunity to explain myself! Fernanda then has a flashback to "the night". Alfredo enters the house on Gonzalos birthday saying he is going to Italy with his son and he wants to take her too. Fernanada says she is Gonzalos woman and that she loves him. He tells her of a portfolio he has with him with jewelry designed just for her girls that are worth a lot of money. Alfredo argues and doesn't listen to what Fernanda is saying then grabs her and kisses her. Fernanda fights him off just as Gonzalo walks in. Back to reality and Fernanda cries how Gonzalo lost trust in her. Amparo asks how did Gonzalo get into the hacienda? Fern doesn't know. Well someone let him in, or he entered with someone of the hacienda .....
Miranda tells Gonzalo not to talk of her mother anymore. She is sure that Fernanda is paying a price for the harm she has caused them. Of that you can be sure hija Gonzalo retorts. Pamela enters the party area with Alejandro on her arm.
Rebeca is crying and Fabricio threatens Cesar to stop making his mother cry or he will break Cesars face. Cesar laughs. Faby asks his mother to live in the ranch house with him and Florencia when they return from their honeymoon. Cesar laughs again and says that he owns the quinta and the house (apartment) they are in now. Cesar tells Faby that if he puts his paws in the quinta he will throw Faby in jail. Faby promises that Cesar cant take what their father left from her. They go to the engagement party.
Miranda tells Pamela everything that her father has just told them about her mother. Miranda cant believe her father still loves her mother. Pamela points out that Miranda is doing the same thing with Faby. Pamela asks if she would ever like to know her mother. Miranda says that she doesn't want to know her mother because her mother never wanted them (the girls).
Raul, and two other brothers talk about how one of them is going to be an immigrant to the US. Cross the border. They say Amparo raised them like they are her own and that she will be upset to hear that one wants to leave. Fernanda enters the house. The all have dinner where the one boy says how he is going to go. The father is angry that he is stupid and why couldn't he have made money, then they wouldn't have to worry. Fernanda asks the boy to wait until she can figure out another way.
Fabricio looks at Miranda during the engagement party. Mariachis play "Si nos dejan", a classic, which is in my opinion an ironic choice for the party. Pretty scene. Fab and Miranda steal more glances. Finally she can take no more and runs off to cry. Alejandro follows her. She tells him the same thing she said to Tomasa earlier about being a woman no more, she is a ghost, she doesnt exist. He tells her no one in this life dies from love.
Alejandro does a good job consoling Miranda. He says that love does not kill it just leaves hurts. She answers that the wounds of love are the ones that hurt the worst and that you can only cure them with tears. Then they kiss! Not once but several times. Renata and Pamela walk up behind them with Renata probing Pamela about her feelings for Alejandro. Pamela thinks that Alejandro might be falling for her when Renata starts to laugh pointing out the snogging Miranda and Alejandro. Pamela runs off and Miranda goes after her.
The wedding will be in the hacienda Gonzalo tells the newly engaged Faby and Flor. He offers them a honeymoon trip on him.
Miranda tries to explain what she did, He kissed me! Pamela just wants Miranda to figure out what she is doing. She (Pam) doesn't want to fall for Alejandro when Miranda wants him. Flor and Faby walk up, both asking for hugs and congratulations. Miranda has to hug them both.
Amparo and her husband discuss the son who wants to cross the border and what they can do about it. (Juan is the one who wants to leave.) THe father wants to open a taco shop near the factory where he works to earn money so Juan wont have to leave. He wants to set the example that the boys fight for the well being of their family like he does for them.
Julio is upset about the stock market. Gonzalo is not. Renata walks up to have breakfast and gets some money from her father as he leaves for the office behind Julio. Renata gets a phone call from Bertha. Bertha only wants to know how Flor and Renata are. Miranda grabs the phone and apologizes to Bertha and asks to see her. Bertha says that Miranda and Gonzalo have really hurt her. Perhaps she will consider returning. When they hang up Bertha calls Miranda stupid and laughs about her plans to return.
Faby and Cesar continue their fight in Cesars office. Faby doesnt want Cesar to throw their mother out. He also wants to do his work in the quinta. Cesar tells him "too bad you aren't going to put your paws on the property.... I need the house for when I marry Miranda." Faby counters with "don't even dream it. Miranda will never be your wife. She continues to love me and if you don't take care of my mother I will give Miranda hopes about me and she will never be with you. Cesar I'm not so good nor so stupid like you have always thought!" Needless to say Cesar is pissed.
Gonzalo introduces Julio to Alejandro. Julio knew Alejandros father. Alejandro talks about his father and how he died. He states that he knows who killed his father and he wont let the person get away with it who did it. Gonzalo asks what Alejandro thinks about the investments. Julio advises that Gonzalo will put to risk all their investments if he moves them. Gonzalo says its now or never. Alejandro says nothing good will come of it. Gonzalo calls a guy and moves the investments anyway. Very risky Julio says.
Flor is happy that Bertha is coming back to the house as Renata told her. Flor is going to take Bertha to the quinta to live with them after their honeymoon. Flor whines about being nauseous and Miranda claims she has to go to a new hospital to see new doctors. They make plans to go this afternoon. Miranda works out in her head how she will stop Flor and Faby from living together at the "quinta".
Nice job recappers!
(Too bad about Nutria.)
It was interesting to see the whole scene of Gonzalo catching Fernanda kissing Alfredo. Now we know that she had rejected Alfredo.
About the incident at the hacienda, Amparo uses the expression, “te agarro con los manos en la masa,” – Fernanda was 'caught with her hands in the dough.’ We would say caught red-handed, I guess.
