La Fea Mas Bella Weds 9/21 (#108): Umm... anybody see this one?
Bad news: Thanks to the Latino Grammys, they ran yesterday's episode an hour early. That would have been fine if I had known ahead of time and set the VCR. Or if I had gotten home in time to find out. I didn't find out until after 11. I suck. I'm sorry. And very very sad. :....(
They did announce the previous day that they were going to do this, but since I usually leave the room or FF during commercial breaks, I missed that. Maybe a Heridas-watcher got it? Please please please?
All I got were the last five minutes, which I'll summarize to the best of my ability. I have only the vaguest idea of what happened before that. I know Alicia "auditioned" for the underwear modeling job in Fern's office, wearing a bikini and a long coat. And a famous model, whose name might be Pilar, showed up (I'm not sure how they got her), so Alicia didn't get the job, not that she was going to anyway.
Everything else is a mystery. What did Alicia tell Ariel? Is Yazmin still locked up, perhaps suffering a disfiguring accident during an escape attempt? Has Alicia's car been repossessed? Did Fern and Ariel somehow manage to swap their identical briefcases despite the fact that Lety was clutching Fern's to her chest most of the time? (And why can't Fern carry his own damn briefcase??) Is it the next day yet? Etc.
When the recording starts (I think it's still the same day), Fern has the famous model in his office with Lety and is on the phone with someone making arrangements for crew and equipment to shoot the commercial. Lety and the model leave his office.
Omar calls from a bar in Munich. It looks just like the swanky bars he and Fern go to in Mexico City, and nothing like the creepy bars where Sidney was always doing spy stuff in Alias. Omar mentions the red bag again. The ensuing conversation is rehash-o-rama. He describes the letter and its manila envelope. He asks if Lety has been acting weird or annoyed lately, or showing any signs of having read it. Fern says no, we spent a lot of time together and everything's fine. Omar asks if he found out where she was this morning, and Fern disgustedly says she was with Tomas. Omar freaks out. Fern says he plans to take Lety to his house tonight. Omar says oh, she insisted, huh? (Omar is awfully dense.) And Fern says no, I WANT her to come over.
Omar doesn't like this either. It really bugs him that Fernando doesn't share his contempt for Lety! They end their conversation, and Fernando gets a silly grin on his face.
In the preview for tonight's episode, Lety is jealous of this new model who might be named Pilar. She advises maybe-Pilar (and some of the feas) that Fern has a problem: he is leading a double-life!
- Yazmin is locked in the bathroom by Aicia, Lola sees when this happens.
_ Lola tells the cuartel that Yazmin is trap and wants to leave her there, but Irmita says she is the only model left and they should rescue Yazmin for the grater good. While this is happening PM is all excited trying to tell el cuartel she got a supermodel for the comercial!! since Irmita still believes that the supermodel won't agree to the comercial she goes en gets Yazmin out :(
-Meanwhile el cheque is all upset because he can't communicate with Yazmin. He decides to go in person to find out what happened.
-El cheque arrives in time to see yazmin coming from the bathroom in her underclothes. She acuses Lola of locking her in the bathroom and tells everybody she is going to Fernando's office to accept the job for the comercial.
-Alicia is in Fernando's office trying to convince him that she is the one he needs. Lety and Ferando tell her that she can't do it because she is an employee and that would provoke a "conflict of interest" ??? (I'm sure they are lying) Alicia starts crying.
-Yazmin enters and makes fun of Alicia and in turn says she is the one for the Job.
-Enters the top supermodel and Yazmin and Alicia are united once more critizing the model
-The rest you already wrote about.
Sorry for the bad grammar. English is my second language.
