ENDA, December 30, 2009
Gabriel and Luz are walking in the park. Luz is telling Gabriel that she will be moving in with Rafa. They spot Paloma moping alone on a park bench and Gabriel goes to talk to her. She tells him she hopes time flies quickly so that she can leave Real del Monte. Gabriel says that what he most likes about her is her wings. No matter how much they try to make her stay she wants to fly away. Paloma mentions that is what her mother use to say to her. Emiliano comes across them talking and stares. Romina comes up and tells him that Paloma just goes from one man to another. Emiliano says that's not true. Of course it is replies Romina. Paloma told me so herself. I saw her after school and the mother superior begged me to come to the graduation so I couldn't say no. So you will be accompanying me. Paloma gets a call from Liliana to meet at the store so that she can help her pick out a dress. BLAH, BLAH. Paloma can't afford one, but Gabriel tells her to use some of the money she got from selling her paintings. You deserve it.
Dr. Bermudez and Rufi talk about Paloma and the situation involving PJC and Natalia. Rufi asks if German is the attorney who is handling Rojas things while he's away. Yes, replies Bermudez. Why? Rufi tells him that German has been going to the house to visit with Carloca. He also takes care of PJC's case. Bermudez smells something fishy.
Paloma is walking to meet with Liliana and comes across Romina and Emiliano. Of course Romina shouts out a greeting and asks Paloma to get her 4 tickets to the graduation. Paloma says fine and tries to leave. Of course Romina stops her and asks her if she will be going with her art teacher. Yes, replies Paloma and leaves. Emiliano is very jealous.
PJC is in his jail cell and ugly guy comes up behind him with rope to choke him. PJC slams ugly guy up against the wall to get away and then throws him out. Ugly guy threatens him and PJC's cellmate runs up and asks if he's okay. PJC says he's fine and doesn't want him to say anything to anyone else.
Orlando visits Natalia in jail and promises to help her.
Liliana and Paloma look at dresses for the graduation. Liliana picks out a pretty dress for Paloma, but she declines. I'm sure she'll pick something ugly. Past looks prove that. Liliana says they have to look their best because Romina will be there.
Emiliano and Romina go and look for baby furniture. Emiliano spots a happy couple and thinks to himself if only this baby was ours Paloma.
Angelica investigates and finds out that Dario registered her book the day after she gave it to him. You betrayed me you jerk.
Diana is playing poker with some other ladies in her ugly wig, extensions, whatever. HA-HA. Samuel's in the background. I think karma's going to bite Diana in the hind end.
Luz is so excited about Rafa's apartment. She brought groceries to cook for him. Smart girl. Men loved a home cooked meal.
Samuel comes up and offers to help the ladies with their game. We don't know you replies one lady. Diana remembers that he's Camila's ex and he joins the ladies. Diana and Samuel slimy smile at each other.
Angelica calls Orlando and gets voicemail. She leaves a message telling him that she will not be able to go to the office tomorrow. She still has not fixed her problem yet. She'll call back sometime tomorrow.
Paloma tells Rufi that she went dress shopping, but can't afford the dress. Rufi tells her to get it and she'll pay for it as a gift. She has no one to spend her money on. That way she can look like a young lady. Paloma decides she'll pay for it instead.
Angelica calls the editor lady that gave her Dario's manuscript to read and asks her to call Dario so that she can tell him face to face that she will be editing his book. She wants to surprise him. I hope she brings along a bat to beat him with. Anyway the lady agrees.
Carloca talks to someone on the phone and wants German to handle all her affairs now instead of Rojas.
The editor lady calls Angelica back and tells her that Dario agreed to come to the office tomorrow. Angelica thanks her and hangs up with a crazy look in her eyes.
Carloca yells for Paloma to hurry up to go to school. She starts fixing Paloma's bed and glances at her nightstand. There in an envelope is a huge amount of cash. Of course Paloma is not smart enough to hide it. Anyway Carloca wants to know in what bad things she's mixed in to have such a large amount of money.
PJC gets a visit from the archbishop and Padre Benito. The archbishop fires/suspends/terminates PJC's priestly duties.
Carloca accuses Paloma of bad behavior with her art teacher. They argue and Carloca wants her to distance herself from Gabriel and Dr. Bermudez. Paloma disagrees. I am a woman that wants to fly. Carloca belittles her. Paloma says I am not a little girl nor am I stupid. So don't treat me that way. Carloca says he wants to take you to bed. Paloma argues again and takes the money from Carloca and leaves.
Rafa is in bed sleeping when Luz comes in with breakfast. Damn she is laying in on thick. I've been married for 10 years and not once have taken breakfast to hubby in bed. He has 2 legs to carry him to the kitchen. Anyway he wants to get up from bed to go to work. They play fight and she tells him that he will not be going to the office. Breakfast is spilt all over the bed. And that is why I don't do breakfast in bed. Hubby is too accident prone and I'm too hot tempered. It'll never work. Rafa calls Joel and tells him that he will not be coming in today. Joel is shocked and guesses it's because of Luz.
Inez gets another letter under her door and opens the door quickly to find Juancho is her secret admirer.
One of the lawyers in the office informs German that he is Carloca's new lawyer. German is happy.
Carloca visits Paloma's first art teacher and wants the number to the guy who bought all the paintings from Paloma. Why asks the lady art teacher. Carloca tells her that she's concerned about all the money he gave Paloma for the paintings and doesn't want things to be misinterpreted. Lady art teacher defends Gabriel and his dad, but gives her the number anyway along with Gabriel's number and address.
Inez accepts having a relationship with Juancho.
Lady editor and Angelica are in her office waiting for Dario. Angelica asks if she can give him the news in private. Lady editor agrees. She leaves as soon as she gets word that he has arrived.
Orlando and Emiliano are talking about Angelica and wonder what's going on.
Dario walks in and sees Angelica. His smile fades and he asks her what she is doing their. Surprised to see me asks Angelica and bitch slaps him. He says he wants to explain. She grabs him by his collar and says what do you want to explain? That you took advantage of me again and stole my book? He tells her he was desperate. Angelica says I am so stupid to have trusted you. You came to Real del Monte in the pretense of helping me and you only wanted to steal it from me. Dario says yes I did, but no one has to know about it. (good time for her to bring out the bat)
PJC is sitting in his cell talking to god and begs him not to leave him.
Dario says his name may be in the book, but the money will be for her. Angelica starts yelling at him. Editor lady comes in wondering what's going on and Angelica says to her that Dario stoled her book. Dario of course denies it and editor lady begs Angelica not to cause a scene. She doesn't understand what Angelica gains from lying. Of course Dario has a smirk on his face. Angelica begs editor lady to believe her, but of course she doesn't.
German tells Emiliano that PJC has been expelled from the priesthood. Emiliano wants to help, but German says if the church doesn't back PJC up then no one will believe in their innocence. Emiliano wants to know if Paloma knows yet. German says he'll tell her , but Emiliano says he will.
German tells PJC he is sorry about his expulsion from the priesthood. PJC wants German to personally tell Paloma about what's going on.
Angelica is walking down the street crying and calling herself an idiot. I agree. If there is absolutely nothing you can do to get your book back then go all ape crazy on his ass and beat the snot out of him. No I do not condone violence, but sometimes you have to teach people a lesson and have them know not to mess with you. I'm just saying.
Emiliano tries calling Paloma and ends up leaving her a message to call him back about PJC.
Carloca yells at Gabriel to quit selling fantasies to Paloma that she will be a great painter. Also I forbid you and your father from giving Paloma excessive amounts of money. I do not like your intentions. Are you done asks Gabriel. I'm not playing replies Carloca. You do not know who you are messing with. Gabriel says a person is known for their words and it's obvious that I am in front of a woman that thinks she can control everything. And wants to cut her niece's wings. Carloca gets pissed and tells him to respect her. Gabriel says then do the same to me. Now it's time you leave. Carloca is appalled that he is throwing her out. Paloma walks in on this. Gabriel again tells Carloca to leave his house now. Carloca stares at him with her mouth opened in shock. Paloma says "Tia"? Carloca whirls around and is surprised to see Paloma.
Manana: Emiliano admits his jealousy; PJC gets stabbed and Carloca is going loca with the news.
Nice to see Inez happy and glad her secret admirer has finally been unveiled. For some reason I thought she already knew her new gentleman friend was also the secret admirer. Very cute!
Looks like Paloma is continuing to stand up for herself afterall. It was nice to see her basically tell Carloca to stay out of her beeswax and step out of her way. But I have a bad feeling that La Loca will find some way to keep Pal tied to Real del Monte. There's a lot of novela left, and the story can't go on without the protagonist in the same town as everyone else, can it?
-Vivi in DC
It appears that the huge violent thug who immediately hates our protagonist is a staple in TNs. I'm also watching Mas Sabe el Diablo on Telemundo and one of the characters in that one has the same kind of thug after him. However, ENDA's thug is about 10 times uglier than the one on Telemundo.
I was very surprised the bishop kicked Cris out of the priesthood. I was expecting the bishopric was going to be off the table, but not complete expulsion. Maybe it has to do with what has been mentioned here before - that in Mexico you're guilty until proven innocent.
Looks like Carlota met her match in Gabriel. He didn't take any of her BS for even one minute.
I know this is the plot and all. But it's starting to make me crazy that Paloma witnesses these crazy outbursts of La Loca and then on the next episode she's meekly kissing her on the cheek and calling her tía again. Obviously Carlota cannot BEAR the thought that Paloma would have money. Money can represent freedom.
Isn't Rafa's relationship with Luz progressing quickly? Didn't they just meet? Bottom line this may be a nice infatuation for Rafa but he's still in love with Camilla.
ITA Novelera regarding Pal. It does not make any sense that after living with La Loca all of her life that she trusts any La Loca says or does.
Happy New Year all!
This TN is still painful for me, I almost don't want to talk about it. The villains just keep getting what they want with almost no relief. It is my first TN and you all keep saying the villains get punished in the end, though. I watch Sortilegio, too, for something lighter.
It was great that Gabe stood up to La Loca, but we know how evil she is so I hope he isn't in danger now as well. Those on Pal's side really need to get together and figure out what to do, about PJC as well.
Let's hope Dr.B tells Orlando about it quickly and get German off of the case.
Angelica you knew how much Dario used you before so what the heck were you thinking to even let him within a foot of your book.
She should have head butted his behind when she had him against the door.
Luz is very pushy, and she was already talking about moving in with him to Gabriel.
Carloca it looks like her control of Paloma is slipping. Now she's threatening Gabriel too.
Dario had me so spitting mad that now I can see why people hire hitmen. However, hitting Dario with that bat, personally, would be much more satisfying.
Luz is so hyper, it would be hard to be around her 24/7. Rafa is pretty laid back so maybe opposites do attract. I agree, the breakfast in bed scene was not amusing to me as well since there is no maid in my house, unfortunately.
Samuel and Diana...a perfect couple, who will probably try to con each other.
