Heridas de Amor, Tuesday Sept. 26
Meanwhile Alejandro and Miranda are discussing their wedding. He asks her doesn't she want the wedding of her dreams? She says that now is not the best time for her nor her father, it's better to have a simple wedding. "But I want to put the world at your feet," he says, kissy kissy, "let me?" More kissing.
Sanson has broken into somebody's house. He's multi-tasking because he's also on his cell phone telling somebody not to be such a "guey", a jerk. He's next to where that stupid Raul lives, the guy who exposed them so now he's going to get rid of him. He says he's at the Doctora's apartment. I didn't get all that he was saying. Something about him not being recognized, only the others, Rafia, Romero and Chaquiras. But don't worry because they're not going to crack. Suddenly he has to hide because somebody is trying to unlock the door.
Juan tells Squeaky that all he can afford after the wedding is a small luncheon. She says it's not important. Of course she'd LOVE the wedding of the year but the important thing is they are together. Juan says Dr. Cohen gave him a raise but he still can't afford a honeymoon. Squeaky tells him not to worry. Kiss Kiss and shared "Te amos."
Sanson is still hiding in the Doctora's apartment while Amparo asks how Fernanda feels about Squeaky marrying Juan. Fern is glad that somebody as wonderful and with such a good future as Juan is interested in Her Daughter Renata. But Her Daughter Renata is so petulant and impulsive she's afraid Juan will be hurt. He can't afford to give her the life she's used to. Sanson listens as Amparo reassures Fern about her daughters. Fern agrees, this may be her opportunity to win back Her Daughter Renata. Sanson smirks as he realizes that Squeaky is Fern's daughter.
Berta has recovered from being stunned and agitated. She's talking to herself because Lucas the dog isn't around. She says Miranda and Gonzalo are going to pay big time. Not only is she nobody's employee but Miranda isn't going to marry Alejandro. Over her cadaver!! Luis Alberto enters and Berta informs him that she wants to buy some company shares.
Leonardo has brought Andrea to a well-lit mausoleum. Nevertheless, even under the harsh lights she is spooked and asks to leave but faux Leo wants to show her something. She's frightened, probably of the bright lights and clean, white marble, and begs to leave. They leave before Leo can show her what he wanted to even though it's only about five feet away. After they leave the camera pans to a tombstone reading "Leonardo Altamirano." Cymbals crash.
Fern says her biggest worry is that Miranda will find out that Alejandro came to seek revenge on Gonzo. She hopes that Alejandro has forgotten his vendetta but she's not sure. Both Alejandro and Gonzo are temperamental and neither wants to lose. She and Amparo leave so Sanson can talk to himself...He congratulates himself on finding out the important information that Alejandro came to town to seek revenge on Gonzalo. This will cost them money and a lot of it. All of a sudden his cell phone rings. The lucky dumbass forgot to turn it off. He's glad to hear that "they" were taken to the police, probably the guys who stole Al's car. He's going to lie low in Morelia for a couple of days. Sanson thinks he's hit the jackpot with all his new information.
Miranda tells Pamela that she's going to sell her jewels because she needs to replace some expensive tools that were stolen, probably during the lethargic uprising of recent history. Al arrives with a pizza and receives a call that his car was found intact. He takes off and Cesar the slimeball slithers in, ostensibly to offer condolences about Tomasa. Pamela gets a call from Luciano. "Who the hell is Luciano?" asks Cesar. "Pam's new boyfriend, Luciano Sartori, owner of the reserved stocks of SLI," she answers. Cesar scowls.
Berta gets a mysterious call from Fermin Padilla. She doesn't remember him but he refreshes her memory. Some years ago she opened an account with him, a lot of money, under the name of Santiago Buenaventura. Recently two men have been investigating that account. One is named Alejandro Luque Buenaventura. Berta says they need to meet (Why? So they can be seen together???) and he agrees.
Luis Alberto enters and tells her he found some company stock that she can buy. She calls him cariño. After she leaves Luis rifles through the papers on her desk.
Miranda wants to know why Cesar is surprised to hear about Luciano. He says it's too coincidental that her friend is the new novia of Luciano, they should be careful of "his type." Pamela enters the room on cloud 9, Luciano is sweet, he wants to accompany her family to Tabasco. Cesar wants to know why. Pamela says he just purchased some property in Comalco. Huh?!?!? Miranda says that's where their hacienda and Cesar's quinta are! She can't believe that the Arriagos or the Duartes would sell their land, hmmm... Cesar says she can put the matter into his hands and he will investigate.
Gonzo's smoking in a restaurant. He wonders what happened to him, he can't manage his affairs like he used to. Alejandro's hiding something and he's going to find out what. He has a green flashback where he's telling Al his business isn't destroyed, one call to any bank and he can open an unlimited line of credit. Back to reality and Vicente joins him. He tells Gonzo that some of his contacts informed him that the smear campaign against him began some days ago in the banker's club. Gonzo recalls a conversation he had with Al and says that only two people would do this to him, Alejandro or Cesar. Julio arrives to sign the documents for the dissolution of their partnership.
Pamela doesn't see why Cesar and Miranda are persecuting Luciano just because he owns those SLI stocks. Cesar says he's concerned for their security. Miranda agrees and says they should investigate him a little more. Pamela says she'll agree to it but she doesn't like it. Cesar tells her to be careful because he's heard some things from a girl who actually went out with him (Yeah, at your house!). Ask him about Malenia or Gisel (Who were at your house!). After Pamela leaves Cesar wheedles to Miranda that he was bothered to see Alejandro in her room being such an opportunist. She says she really wants him to get along with Alejandro because they're both special to her. Also, by his actions Cesar has shown her that she was terribly wrong about him (Cesar) before. He says "Seriously? You're not going to reject me like always?"
At the restaurant Julio signs the documents. Gonzo says even though he's been waiting for this for a while it doesn't make him happy. He asks Julio if it's true he's going into business with Cesar. Julia says yes. Gonzo sincerely wishes him luck, adding he's going to need it with Cesar next to him. Julio says Gonzo is a harsh man, a tyrant, but he knows that all he's done in life has been to protect his daughters. When he (Julio) sold the reserved shares he was only thinking of his sons. Julio apologized for selling the reserved shares.
Cesar lies, promising to get along with Alejandro as Miranda requests. He lies some more, telling her that the pregnant Nuria has been abandoned by the father but he, Cesar, has volunteered to help her out by giving her money to buy all the little baby things that women love. Miranda the sap says "Verdaaaaad???" She tells him how noble he is. He smiles and shrugs. She falls for it, estupida!! He leaves the house with a spring in his step and plans to attack Alejandro's weak points via Miranda, Lasagna, and Luciano.
Back at the hacienda Pamela is trying to get Charo to tell her more about the night Tomasa died. Charo said Tomasa knew she was going to die. Ever since she returned from the property she felt doubts in her chest, said she should go before something happened. Also, mean old Sra. Berta told her to throw Tomasa's things in the trash. Pamela told Charo to give Tomasa's things to her and she'll give them to those who need them. Miranda arrives singing Cesar's praises and it's sickening so let's move on.
Nuria is packing up her desk telling Luis Alberto she doesn't want to go but it's best for the baby. He's very sympathetic and she tells him how nice he is. He hems and haws, doesn't know how to say it but...he loves her. "But you are a friend of Cesar," she says," and I...I..." "Cesar doesn't have friends, he has interests," answers Luis, "that's why I'll always be there for you." She cries, just then Cesar walks in and spoils everything. He feigns compassion then grabs her head, gives her an oddly robotic kiss and kicks Luis Alberto out of the room.
Juan is with Francisco, Raul and Carola. He's got Alejandro on the phone and says he needs to talk to him, but Al just wants to say his car was found intact. He was able to identify only Chaquiras, Romeo and Rafias. Carola is bummed that Sanson wasn't identified. Juan says he'll get caught one of these days. Juan adds that for his crimes Raul will get off with a fine and community service. Carola tells Juan she's given up the whoring biz. He hugs her.
Daira is at Miranda's when Al returns and tells them his car was found before the thieves could damage it. Daira observes that Al and Miranda look happy together, like they are illuminated by a great light. Pamela hopes that she and Luciano can look like that; they are going to Tabasco together. Al doesn't look pleased about this news. Daira whips out her tarot cards and is going to read everybody's fortunes.
Huh? I thought Cesar was comforting Nuria and now all of a sudden she's mad. Must have been that crappy kiss. She's jealous of the time Cesar spends with Miranda, he has no intention of marrying her (Nuria) and she knows he won't recognize his child. She says "You always convince me to your way but not this time!" Quoth the doormat. Cesar sweet talks her, says he told Miranda of her pregnancy and that he was helping her. One second she believes him, the second she pushes him. This editing sucks. As Luis eavesdrops Cesar gets angry and starts yelling, telling Nuria she'd better not reveal the baby is his. Now Nuria is apologizing, saying she'll do anything he wants. Behind the door Luis loosens his tie as if preparing for a fight, but he's a doormat too and does nothing. Cesar threatens to leave her and she shamelessly begs him to stay. He tells her to convince him and taps his lips. She kisses him. I gag. Luis Alberto rolls his eyes.
Berta meets Fermin in a public bar. She wants to know what HE'S going to do about what's happened. He wants to know what THEY are going to do about the two guys. She'll deny everything, no proof she was involved. He says some of the records are in her handwriting. "Oh, so it's money you want," she says. No no no no, he doesn't want money. He has a good job, a wife, children and he doesn't want to lose it all. "Where do you think this nephew got my
data?" he asks. Berta shrugs.
Faux Leonardo has taken Andrea to dinner. He keeps calling her "amor" so he must want something. He asks how she knew he wasn't the real Leo. She says the real Leo only smiled when he was about to hit her. Faux Leo tells her no more hits, only love and protection. Three guys with violins have arrived and are leaning over them trying to get their camera time so we can't hear the dialogue very well. After buttering her up faux Leo whips out the booklet he lifted from her box of memories, opens it and asks her if she can decipher the code. She mumbles that to translate it one needs the keys. Because of that notebook they had to run away. She tells him to get rid of it, he shouldn't have it near him, it's very dangerous.
Juan tells his dad, Raul and Carola that he wants to invite them to a little "do" tomorrow because, (long pause), because he's getting married! Carola is impactada as the cruel word "MARRIED...MARRIED...MARRIED" ricochets throughout her head.
