Eva Luna #38 & #39, 12/29/10; A daughter is found/ Victoria goes Ballistic
Claudia is musing to herself how crazy Victoria will be when she finds out she is going to be an Aunt.
Marisol decides to surprise Fran and buys him a little gift then decides to go visit him at “his house“. He answers the door in full chauffer gear with garden hose in hand as he is about to wash the car.
He sees it is Marisol and slams the door in her face and drops the hose. He does some fast thinking and opens the door telling Marisol he was rehearsing the role of a chauffer. Marisol buys it hook line and garden hose. Jacky is not going to make things easy for him and offers Marisol a coffee.
Fran manages to whisk Marisol away to some outdoor restaurant where the two continue their charades of how to marry a millionaire. Fran opens the gift she gave him.
It is a gold chain with a star on it to signify the magical night they had together at her “penthouse”. She bought herself one as well. (I think she got them at a pawn shop on credit or something and told the owner after she marries her millionaire she will be able to pay for them.)
Fran is thrilled and more chatting takes place. He tells her the moment has finally arrived to ask her something very important. He gets up and walks over and drops to one knee and taking her hand her kisses it and tells her he wants to spend the rest of his life with her and asks her to marry him.
Our next vignettes are about Alicia, Tony and Leo. Tony is getting ready to leave and as he opens the door he finds Alicia waiting for him. She reminds him he promised to take her to see Carlos. Tony tells her he can’t do it today. Alicia tries defiance and says she will just go by herself. Tony gives her the “scared straight” talk and tells her if she goes by herself she could end up in jail as an accomplice. Alicia buys this tale hook line and lollipop.
He tells her he has to do an errand for his boss (Leo) and Alicia manages to talk him into letting her come along. They show up at the mansion with Leo poolside. He manages to send Tony off for a bit while he can make his moves on Alicia. She tells him she has a sister and she is much prettier than her. Leo tells her that is impossible. Or something like that. He even manages to give her his phone number on a napkin in case she should ever need anything. Tony returns and is quite anxious to get her out of there.
Once back at the pension, our little air for brains Alicia decides to take Leo up on his offer and calls him.
She asks him if he remembers her. He tells her how could he forget her. We see him working out at the gym.
Shameless flirting takes place and Leo tells her she can tutiar him.(Use the more familiar term of Tu instead of ustead.) He tells her if it wasn’t for the fact that Tony was her boyfriend he would like to get to know her better. Alicia now all flustered tells him Tony is more like a good friend than her boyfriend. Well if that is the case, Leo decides to ask her out. She agrees to go out with him and guess who walks up behind as she is answering yes. Old Tony.
Alicia realizes Tony is behind her and he wants to know who she was talking to. Alicia either being very honest or just not quick enough as the boys to come up with a good lie tells Tony it was Leo. Tony looks affected. Old Leo has hung up the phone all full of himself saying “Leo you are irresistible .”
All right, now with that out of the way lets get on to what matters.
Daniel is at the police station when Victoria shows up. Eva has gone to get coffee and returns just as Victoria has her arms around him. He gives Eva a dumfounded look. She instantly splits and leaves the police station.
Eva is wondering around the police grounds in front of Daniels car and realizes her purse is in Dan’s car. Who should be standing out there but Leo. He tells Eva they have to leave quickly before Victoria sees her.
Victoria is still inside chewing out Daniel for not telling her where he was. She tells him both Jacky and Fran were really rude to her and he should fire them both. Dan asks her if he looks like he has the mind set right now to think about changing chauffeurs? Victoria quickly changes her game plan and plays more sympathetic. (or not) As a matter of fact she tells him “We need to talk to that girl. What Laurita did was really serious.”
Dan looking quite disgusted tells her he has to leave. Victoria wants to know if she can come with and he tells her no. He has gone outside to look for Eva and arrives just as Leo has convinced Eva to leave with him.
Leo asks Eva how she could think about going out with Daniel. Eva crying tells him she wasn’t “Going out with him.” She was just helping him look for Laurita. He showed up at the pension looking for her. Leo tells her he understands but it could have been bad news if Victoria saw her there.
Old bad news herself has gone outside to look for Daniel and asks him what’s up. He tells her nothing. She wants to know why Leo took off. She manages to get Daniel to give her a ride home. She notices Eva’s purse in the car and goes ballistic and wants to know who it belongs too. Daniel lies and tells her it is Jacky’s. Victoria isn’t buying this. Dan gets mad and tells her he is falling to pieces because his daughter is missing “And I am sitting here discussing with you whose purse this is? And for what? You and I are over so stop with all the questions!!” Victoria meekly backs off and tells him he’s right. But in the meantime she just wants to help him at least until they find Laurita.
Eva still crying tells Leo that Daniel was desperate and all she wanted to do was help him. He tells her that it is Victoria that should be by his side and not her. He tells her it isn’t right that she should take away Victoria’s “love of her life.”
Laurita is settling in nicely in Adrian’s room. He is the perfect host. She calls him her hero and Adrian looks a bit scared but also happy. She is all set to sleep on the floor and he tells her to sleep in his bed. He will sleep in his dads bed.
Leo is telling Eva not to cry. He suggests they go for a coffee.
She tells him it is really late and she needs to get home. She looks at him with a tear stained face and thanks him telling him he has a kind heart. Leo tells her that it is a heart that belongs to her a little more each day At one point he even asks her if she could ever love him. (or something like that)
Laurita and Adrian are getting along famously when Ricardo knocks on the door and wants to know why it is locked. The two panic and Laurita ends up hiding behind the door clutching Chico as Ricardo wants to know if he was sleeping with his clothes on.
Ricardo finally leaves and the two are left to settle in.
We see a very distraught Daniel sitting in Laurita’s room holding her picture praying for her safety and saying he can’t live with out her.
In the morning Adrian gently wakens Laurita. They discover that Chico has decided to use Laurita’s clothes pile as a bathroom. Adrian gives Laurita some of his clothes to wear. He decides to leave a note for Ricardo telling him he left for school and then he and Laurita can go to the park.
Eva is getting ready for work as well and Alicia is still in bed. Eva wants to know what time she has class. Alicia lies to her and tells her not till later. She is now going to the patio and sees Adrian tip toeing behind Laurita. She stops him and asks him where he is going and who his friend is. She soon discovers that his “little friend” is none other than Laurita as she sees Chico poking his head out.
Laurita pleads with Eva not to take her back home. She tells her she doesn’t want to see him with that witch Victoria. She tells her she wants to stay and live with her. Eva tells her Daniel is worried sick about her. Laurita tells Eva that he doesn’t love her. He prefers the witch. Eva asks her if that is what she really thinks. Eva tells her Daniel loves her more than anything and makes her promise never to do anything like that again. She promises.
Daniel is on the phone (I think he is talking to the police). He is quite upset wanting to know why they don’t know anything yet. He tells them to get extra people to look for her. He will even pay. He hangs up and Victoria shows up telling him she couldn’t sleep all night because she was so worried about Laurita.
His phone rings and there is a message telling him they found Laurita. Victoria is all eager to go with him and Daniel tells her no, it is something he has to do alone. Victoria wants to know what the big deal is. He tells her it is because he knows the only thing Laurita does not want at this time is for him to show up with her (Boom!!!! Right between the eyes!!!) as Jacky and Fran look on in surprise. He tells her they will talk later and takes off.
Victoria is left behind pouting and furious as Fran and Jacky try to make their escape. Not quite quick enough as Victoria asks Jackie where her purse is. Jacky asks her “what?” as Fran tries to disappear into the woodwork.
Victoria tells her she wants to see it. Jacky thinks this over for a moment and tells her with everything that has been going on she forgot it in Daniel’s car. Victoria scowls and leaves. Fran approaches Jacky and wants to know what that was all about. She tells him the purse in the car belongs to Eva. He seems quite impressed with her and wants to know how she could think of something like that so fast. She tells him that Daniel asked her to help him out in case Victoria asks about the purse. He claps his hands to congratulate her and tells her she is the best and gives her a big hug and kiss on the cheek.
And a cute little swirl to boot. Jacky is elated.
Father and daughter are finally reunited and a large hug ensues with Eva and Adrian looking on. He starts to let her have it for running away and Laurita begs him not to chew her out. Adrian also tells him he is sorry and it won’t happen again. Daniel semi-sternly says okay and thanks him for looking after his daughter. He kisses Laurita on the top of her head and looking at Eva says “At this moment I am the happiest man in the world. Thanks to you I found my daughter..” He continues to say that Laurita didn’t believe him when he told her he was in love with her. He says “But now I will show her” and goes over to Eva and gives her a kiss. We see a very happy Laurita and Adrian looking on.
We also see our detective friend looking on as he gets a snap shot of the kiss as he tells himself this is the picture that he needs. “With this kiss the suspicions of Victoria are confirmed.”
The kiss finally ends and Eva seems pleasantly surprised and Daniel tells her he loves her and he wants the whole world to know. Laurita rushes to him hugging him and telling her she finally believes him. He hugs her back but sternly reminds her that they need to have a talk. She tells him she knows she shouldn’t have run away but she doesn’t want him to marry Victoria. He tells her that he doesn’t want that either. He wants Eva.
He goes to his car and retrieves Eva’s purse telling her it is the second time her purse stayed with him. He asks her if this doesn’t look like a good sign that she should do the same. He tells her he will drop her off at work. She declines but he talks her into it. First, Laurita and Adrian have a little chat as Laurita thanks him for all his help. They agree they will always be friends.
Once all three are in in the car Laurita makes Daniel swear he will always be at Eva’s side. He gladly swears to this. Laurita turns to Eva and says it is your turn. Eva seems uncomfortable and tells Laurita to stop playing around. Laurita seriously tells her it is not a game and holds her hand up and tells her to swear she will always be at her father’s side. Eva pulls her hand away says they should go and Laurita seems crushed. She asks if she doesn’t care for her father and doesn’t want to be at his side? Eva tells her it isn’t that, it’s she can’t promise something she can’t do. Daniel looking at her tells her “Don’t you understand that this is meant to be?” He says “I swear at this moment in front of the most sacred things in my life (looking at Laurita and then Eva) that I will love and respect the women that is front of me forever.”
Eva looking back at Daniel smiling says “I too swear. To be at your side for ever” Laurita all cheers and smiles shouts “Bravo.” as Daniel honks the horn.
After that warm and fuzzy scene we go to Victoria and Marcella. This scene is more like ice and scuz. Victoria tells her they found the brat. Victoria tells her she doesn’t know where though. Daniel left in a hurry without telling her a thing and didn’t even want her to come along. Marcella rags on her telling her she is still doing everything all wrong and tells her there are two basic things she should be doing. The first thing she should do is win over the child. Victoria tells her she has tried but the “child” is intolerable. Marcella tells her intolerable or not she should still do it.
Victoria asks her what the second thing is. Marcella tells her to find out who is her competition. She asks how the detective is doing. Victoria tells her he might have something and will bring it over in the afternoon. Marcella says good. Once they know who the other woman is they can come up with a plan of attack and eliminate her.
Back at Daniel’s house Jacky is overjoyed to see Laurita back home and tells Eva hi. She tells Jacky where she was hiding. And something about a bike. Daniel asks about Fran and Jacky tells him he had to leave. He had things to take care off.
Eva tells Daniel she has to leave. Julio is waiting for her. Daniel tells her not to worry. Julio will understand. They will want to know why Laurita was in her house. Daniel says “That’s easy to understand, my daughter adores you and I love you.” Eva thinks they should wait a couple of days. He tells her he will take care of it now to prove the oath he took. (or something like that. We have a whole ‘nother chapter to get through.) And we end with more kisses.
Our detective is all excited about the excellent pictures he took. All he has to do is print them and take them over to Victoria’s house.
He has arrived at the house and Renata has called Victoria to tell her there is a man there to see her. She tells her to tell him to wait for her and not to say a word to anyone.
Daniel shows up as well and Renata tells him Victoria isn’t there. He tells her he did not come to see Vicky He came to talk with Julio. Renata seems surprised by this.
Julio is on the phone and is asking the person (I think it is his lawyer) if he will have the documents ready that he was asking for. He tells him he will personally go and pick them up. As he hangs up Renata enters and tells him Daniel is here to see him. Julio is all excited at this news and waves him in.
Victoria gets home and asks about the detective. Renata tells her he is waiting for her in the study. She tells her Daniel is also here. Victoria looks puzzled Renata tells her he is in the study with her father. Now Victoria looks worried and asks what he wants. Renata tells her she didn’t ask him. Victoria rushes up to talk with the detective.
Julio asks Daniel if there is anything wrong at the agency. Daniel assures him everything is fine. He tells him what he needs to talk to him about has nothing to do with the agency. Julio sits forward and says “well tell me.” Daniel prefaces it with “Above all else I respect you and appreciate you very much. You were my father’s best friend and you think of me as a son.” Julio agrees with this. Daniel continues and tells him he is an honorable man. Julio tells him he didn’t come to just tell him those things. Daniel tells him what he has to tell him is much more serious.
Victoria is talking with the detective. He starts to show her the pictures when Eva suddenly walks in. He gets a bit jittery realizing that the women in the pictures is the same person in front of him. He tells Victoria he has the wrong envelope and tells her he needs to go back to his car. Victoria is livid. She threatens to call his boss so he will get fired. Our stammering frightened detective is able to convince her he will be right back and heads out the door.
Daniel finally confesses to Julio that he doesn’t love his Daughter enough to marry her. Julio is giving some great faces when he hears Daniel’s confession.
He continues to say their relationship doesn’t even exist. He tells him he is really embarrassed by all this especially with all their expectations of the engagement.
He tells him that their relationship was nothing more than what they became accustomed to. Julio says “And you are telling me all this because?” Daniel says, he “I can’t stand this any more. I don’t want to feel pressured with a commitment I don’t want.” Julio asks him if he is in love with another women. Daniel tells him whether he is in love with another women or not isn’t the issue. “I don’t love Victoria.” He tells Daniel that in that case there are two important things. Daniel continues apologizing profusely and tells him he would understand if he wants him to leave. Julio understandingly pats him on the shoulder and says “That won’t be necessary. And man to man, I congratulate you.” Daniel looks shocked and says “What?”
Julio tells him it took a lot of courage and sincerity to tell him all those things. Even if it shows he has found love some where else. He looks at Daniel and asks “Or am I wrong?” Daniel tells him he is not wrong.
It looks like one of the maids is privy to Eva’s personal goings on as she congratulates her and wishes her happiness with Daniel. Eva tells her that she will probably have to leave soon. She tells her she is terrified of what Marcella and Victoria will do when they find out. ( So what do you think? Poison or Acid in the face?)
Our poor detective is on the phone with his boss asking him what he should do, as the woman in the picture also works at the house. Boss man tells him to hand the pictures over to the client. (or something like that)
Julio has Daniel sit down and tells him he knew that the relationship he had with Victoria wasn’t working out. He has thought this for a long time. That is why he stayed in the background. He admits to Julio that it was irresponsible of him to ask Victoria to marry him knowing he didn’t love her. Julio tells him the important thing is he realized it just in time. It would have been a lot harder to break it off once he was married. He tells Daniel that he will help him out with Victoria.
He also tells Daniel he wants to give him a little advice “Don’t believe everything you see.” Daniel shaking his head tells him he doesn’t understand. Julio shaking his head, tells him it doesn’t matter. “the fact is I totally agree with you. The relationship has to end now.” Daniel thanks him for his understanding. Julio tells him that he can count on him for all his help.
The detective has returned to a pacing Victoria and she screams at him to give her the envelope. He tells her once she sees the pictures she will understand why he was hesitant to give them to her. Victoria rips the envelope open and her eyes bug out as she looks at them.
Victoria is putting all the pieces together as she flashes back on all the goings on between Daniel and Eva. She realizes it was her purse that was in Daniel’s car. The detective tries to clam her down as she becomes more infuriated. He tells her if she wants to get even she has to use surprise and not anger. Victoria calms herself a bit and says “You don’t have the slightest idea of what I am capable of.” (unfortunately w all do.)
There is a brief encounter between Daniel and Eva in the kitchen. He tells her he just talked with Julio. Eva is a little worried about this and Daniel tells her there is nothing to worry about. He didn’t tell him about them. He just told him he could not marry Victoria. We hear footsteps and it is Renata. They separate a bit and Daniel tells her he will tell her more later.
Victoria has quickly run to daddy asking if Daniel was just there. Julio wants to know how she is doing. She tells him she is fine. She is going to marry Daniel. Julio stands up and says “For God’s sake Victoria” as he walks over to her and says “How long ?” Victoria tells him she doesn’t understand and says “How long till what papa?” “How long will you try and make me believe that nothing has happened. You use to be happy.” Victoria tells him she is happy. Julio tells her he knows she is not happy. He tells her when she decides to be sincere with him he will be right there waiting for her. She tells him “I don’t know what Daniel said but I am going to marry him no matter what.” and leaves a frustrated Julio behind.
Renata tells Daniel she doesn’t mean to be disrespectful but she is really surprised to see him in the kitchen.
She tells him she thought he was here to talk to Julio. Daniel tells her he is just about ready to leave but he wanted to see Eva first. Renata wonders over towards Eva and says “Yea?” Daniel tells her she doesn’t need any more explanations. She tells Victoria to hurry up with Julio’s food and tells Daniel that Victoria has just arrived and is waiting in the den. Daniel tells her he doesn’t need to see her and starts to leave through the kitchen door. Renata isn’t pleased with this and asks him why he would leave that way. He tells her he is in a hurry and leaves. Renata tries to give Eva a hard time as she leaves with Julio’s food.
Victoria asks Renata if she has seen Daniel. She tells her that he just left through the servants exit. Victoria is not happy to hear this. She tells Vicky that he left that way because he was just in the kitchen talking to Eva. She is livid and is about to rip Eva apart when Marcella walks in and asks her who she is about to rip apart. Victoria screaming says it is a good thing you’re here. You have no idea what’s going on.
Daniel has his little talk with Laurita. He tells her everyone was worried sick about her. The police were even looking for her. She tells him she knows she did something bad and is very sorry. He tells her she isn’t a baby and she is at the age where she can tell him anything that bothers her. She doesn’t need to run away. He tells her it is better to talk things over than to run away. She apologizes and tells him she was afraid he would marry Vicky and that this would no longer be her house. He tells her that she should know by now that he is not going back to Victoria. And this house is hers for ever. Big hugs and all is forgotten.
We have a little tarot reading from Matilda and things don’t look so good for Eva. Well we all know that. FF>>
And here is the reason why. Victoria screaming and ranting shows Marcella the pictures and Marcella is jaw dropped stunned to see the pictures are of Eva.
Okay there is about 30 minutes to go and it is really getting late so I am going to quickly wrap the rest of this up from my notes. Sorry. I can’t take anymore.
Victoria is still livid and wants revenge. Marcella tells her to think this over carefully. It would not be to their advantage to turn Eva into the victim.
Even Giorgio gets in the act when he tells Marcella he is not surprised that Eva is the other woman. After all he tried to warn her. Marcella tells him she should have listened to him. He is all worried about what they are going to tell the press. She tells him not to say a word to anyone.
Victoria has a major meltdown as she destroys her bedroom and puts all the pieces together. All the times she saw Eva and Daniel together. She finally kneels down to her bed stand and takes her gun out and starts caressing it as she comes up with her own plan. She takes the bullets out and says they will talk first. Face to face. “Then I will kill you.”
Daniel and Laurita have more bonding time. He tells her that her and Eva are the two people he loves most in the world.
Can you believe that Eva is still hanging about? Well she is. She is still in the kitchen. We get more tarot card readings telling us Eva is in danger. We see Victoria calmly put the gun in her purse and heads out to find Eva.
Victoria has finally found Eva as she is cutting some celery. She is spooked by Victoria and accidentally cuts her finger. Victoria tells her to be more careful. She tells Eva she looks very nervous and asks her if she has a guilty conscience. . Eva asks her why she would ask her such a thing. Then she asks if she can do anything for her. Victoria tells her yes. She needs her to come with her for modeling job or something. Eva tells her she is really busy right now. Victoria tells her she cleared it with Julio and he is okay if she goes with her. She tells Victoria she needs to tell Renata and again Victoria tells her not to worry everything is taken care of. She won’t even let Eva get her purse and she grabs onto her and escorts her outside telling her they need to hurry.
Leo enters the house and attempts to give mother a kiss and tells her he is dying of hunger. She looks at him and asks him what kind of hunger does he have? Hunger for food or hunger for Eva? Leo wants to know why she would ask him that. She tells him to not act so stupid and to listen to her. She tells him he dragged that woman here and made her hire her for him. And it is fault now that Victoria is suffering. Leo doesn’t have a clue as to what she is talking about. She tells him that Eva and Daniel are lovers.
We now see Daniel trying to reach Eva. No luck. The nice maid is even wondering where Eva could be as she smells the supper. Renata is not impressed as she walks buy and tells her to throw it away and get some chicken. Daniel has called the house and Renata answers. He asks to talk with Eva and Renata gives him a bad time. He tells her to let him talk to Eva now.
We see a white sports car speeding down the road. Eva is asking Victoria if they are going to a photo shoot. Victoria tells her yes. Eva tells her “I don’t see any of your clothes or shoes or anything. Victoria tells her not to worry. Then she says “Eva can I ask you a question just between us women?” Eva tells her sure. “Have you ever been unfaithful to a man?” Eva tells her she doesn’t understand her question. She tells her she is talking about being faithful or not. Then she says “Have you ever been happy with someone and someone else comes along? Or better said, have you ever been the other women?” and there we end.
Laurita left her bike at the boarding house. I don't know if that will play into anything later or not, but that's what she mentioned to her father after they got home.
Now Tony has threatened Ali about getting together with his boss. Tony is such a little putz. I hope Leo finally puts him in his place. On the other hand, there's Leo asking Eva if she could ever love him and he's still hitting on women he thinks are easy. What a scumbag. One of these days Eva's going to run into Ali there at poolside and sparks will fly.
Anyway, thanks for the great recap and your dedication with a two-fer!!
I assume all I really need to know is that Daniel loves Eva; Eva loves Daniel but there will be quite a few twists and turns before they are together...and that Leo and V-icky will be the ones trying to keep them apart.
I think it's hilarious that I go from Rosendo "Snidely Whiplash" Gavilan kidnapping Val to V-icky kidnapping Eva. Guess TN writers all go to the same well.
Vicky: this little witch ranks right up there with the delusional TN nutjobs. Daniel, lord love him, gave it to her as you say "right between the eyes" and she still thinks she's going to win him back like some prize at a carnival. But you gotta love when she goes all lunatic...with those bug eyes, hysterical. Your pic was perfect!
Do we really think she would shoot Eva yet...too early, but either someone is going to be collateral damage, or she'll be dumb enough to do something to herself to make Daniel once again feel guilty. Though, have to say, he gives me hope he wouldn't fall for it. Love he told Julio he was backing off...now if we could only keep that poor man out of Marci's clutches to help...(Changing his will do we think?)
Little Adrian's smile after the kiss from Laurita - best moment of the episode!!
As for Tony and Airhead - he should talk with trying to get Jacky on the side too...Love that slimeball would get himself in with Alicia, not knowing Eva is her sis, and with Claw in the wings with baby on board. Man Leo, talk about digging yourself into a hole!
It amazes me why any woman would want to have a butt like that. It looks so declasse.
Yes, all the smiles exchanged between Adriancito and Laurita were priceless, as well as Dano's look when he realized those two like each other quite a bit.
Victoria's eyes bugging out are a bit like Ivana's...I think I am feeling better now.
Where i come from we don't have to wear fake fannies we have real ones!
my tv schedule shows something on Sunday at 2pm CST (3pm EST) for Eva, two hours long. Might be another summary or maybe some xmas special thing, not sure, did not look at the rest of info.
I think the fun thing about this show is it is a first run anywhere and there is no sneak peaking so we all discover things at the same time.
Jardinera, I always look forward to your kind words and comments. The bug eyed Vicky scene was halarious.
Marta, I saw the Sunday thing as well. My DVR downstairs will automatically rcord it so I will definately check it out.
Urban Anthropoligist, I never saw stud so don't know how evil Ivana was, but our devilish dynamic Mother/ daughter duel are quite EVIL!!! AND BOTH HAVE PROVED TO BE VERY DANGEROUS!!!
Yes, the long-suffering maid at Marcie House has befriended Eva. She has a name, but I can't remember it just now.
BTW, In the car scene, when Laurita is asking Eva to swear and she won't and Lau asks why not, Eva says she can't swear to something that "no puede ser." She's saying I can't swear to something "that cannot be." It's a small thing, except to me--because it's the same refrain about their love Eva's been using on Daniel since the beginning. Thank goodness she overcame her doubts at such a serious moment--with a kid and a dog in the back seat--cute.
All the characters were brilliant last night, even the poor detective. I have to give Victoria a BRAVA for her performance--she's way better to watch than Ivana ever was.
I forgot to note yesterday that Leo told Vick to change clothes and put on something more decente before he took her to Daniel--but that black and white tighty didn't look any more decente than the purple top--only that her mid-riff wasn't exposed.
Except that the confrontation between Jacky and V-ick over the purse was fun, it didn't make sense. If it was Jacky's purse, Dan should have brought it in the house if it was really hers.
It did allow Dan to have the nice-- twice you've left your bag with me, and isn't it a sign that maybe you should too--speech?
It did cross my mind that it was odd when the Corvette's top was down when they left for the police station, and when they arrived it was up. Why Eva would leave her purse in the car also didn't make real sense. Other than that, it certainly moved the action in the right direction.
I loved the father-daughter tussle after Dan and Lau had their little talk.
Dan and Laurita were wonderful this episode. Really great father-daughter scenes. I am glad that Dan also went straight to Julio and told him the truth (wish he had told him Eva is his secret love). Now I want him to announce to the world that he and Vicky are over so that there can be no more misunderstandings between him and Eva. Although declaring it in front of Laurita is a pretty good start.
I am really worried for Eva, and not just because Vicky has her and a gun. Even if this little plan fails, Vicky will try something else, and Marci is even more deadly than she is. Eva needs a body guard.
I really loved hating Ivana, so I don't know if V-icky can replace her...but I'm willing to give her a chance.
I'm going to check out a few recaps and try to watch again tonight. Guy Ecker had my heart pretty quickly, but I guess Blanca Soto will have to grow on me.
I'm really looking forward to Triunfo del Amor. We are a one TV/DVR family and TDA fit into the Hubadub's recording schedule better. I also heard a rumor that re-runs of Destilando Amor was going to take over when La Verdad Oculta finished it's midnight run, so I might try and record that (and read the past re-caps, of course.)
Clearly I am really suffering from the loss of STuD and I'm beginning to worry about myself. LOL
You did a FANTASTIC job on this endless episode. Thank you so much. Well, some interesting stuff definitely did happen. I can hardly wait to see tonight's episode!
Did everyone see the preview for a rerun of the two hour STuD and Algo Más episode for tonight.
Thank you, Pata, for a wonderful recap and all the commentators. And also thank you for letting us know about Sunday´s episode of EVA. Happy New Year to everyone!
What you see is what you get. I think all the major character relationships have been introduced.
The action is among the characters; although we can count on meltdowns with lots of shouting, guns, knives, gambling, automobile accidents, cute puppies, and of course tears.
All we have to worry about is:
1. Whether Vick and Marcie go through with getting rid of Eva, offing Don J, offing Laurita and offing Dan to get the inheritance (that's a lot and Marcie already has a few notches on her gloved hand)
2. Whether Vick, the perpetrator of the acid-laced face cream is revealed and punished (Claw knows this)
3. Whether DonJ's medicina is a slow-acting poison, like arsenic and the doctor who writes the prescription and Marcie will be discovered before he dies
4. Whether Carlos gets out of jail (hohum) and Tony gets his comeuppance (more interesting)
5. Whether Adrian's father come back to mess up his and Ricardo's life, and does Ricardo ever get his money back

Does that about cover it? If anyone wants to add to the list, we're up to 15.
1) finding out what the reason is for Bruno going after Marcela's money --i.e., is it a family grudge or just greed?
2) Will V-icky find a substitute obsession by bedding buff Bruno?
3) Will V-icky find repentance and disappoint us all?
4) Will Eva and Ali run into each other at the manse before or after Leo takes Ali to bed?
5) Who will end up with Giorgio?
UnaNa thanks for the clarification in the car about No puede ser. That really makes alot of sense. You always add such great insight to your comments.
Vivi, thanks for the kind words. I always look forward to your comments as well. Too funny about Eva needing a body guard. I think anyone who isn't Marcella or Vicky or even Tony in this novela needs body guards.
Karen, I am glad you are enjoying the recaps. This is a fun show but the editing really bites. I hope you stick with us. I too hope Julio makes it to the ending, but don't really see that happening.
Looks like I will have to read quite a few recaps. I am a bit confused by Anonagaininhere's list. I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but my guess is Julio is not long for this world. He will join Regina (from Al Diablo Con los Guapos) Don Federico and Benita (from STuD.) I really like him...which dooms him to death for sure.
I too like that we are all getting this first hand. Spoilers are awful. I accidentally found out about Benita's death two weeks early (thanks internet) and it just about killed me.
Can't wait for tomorrow's recaps. Tonight was a scorcher. Didn't know if Leo's rescue was going to be the one.
Sara--Add Matilde's dad in Amor Real to your list of elderly galans who went too soon for us. Also, in Sortie, MJ and Sandra's false grandfather was quite a dapper guy and expired before we'd had enough of him.
E: How did you get here?
D: Aurelia told me where you were.
D: I will tell you later. But I could barely find you! Why did you get deep in the woods? Why did you not stay close to Gunho-BimButt’s car waiting for the tow truck?
E: What tow truck? What are you talking about?
D: What do you mean what tow truck? According to Leo, Gunho-BimButt called him because her car broke. He came for her! You had stayed in the car waiting for the tow truck!
E: That is not true! Gunho-BimButt sent me to the forest to look for the production staff and she went back to her car to get some things! And then I could not find her and got lost! Then something terrible happened! (leans on his shoulder) I feel so bad… I am really scared! (Visibly worried about her, he holds her tight to make her feel safe)
D: Take it easy. My love, I can’t believe that all this was just coincidence! There is something very strange behind all this!
E: Why are you saying that?
D: I don’t know why I am saying it. But you have had enough happening for one day. Let’s go. I will take you to the car. Can you stand up?
E: No… it hurts too much… ay… I can’t.
D: Hug me. (put your arms around me)… That’s it. Come… (he carries her to the car)
At the car… Dano drops Eva right at the door.
D: Does it hurt much?
E: No, it is much better now.
D: (he is caressing her hair and back) When we get back I will take you to the doctor to look you up.
E: That won’t be necessary.
D: Shall we go? (he holds her door for her)
At the car, Dano goes to turn the car on and realizes he is out of gas. Eva is worried.
E: What are we going to do.?
D: I don’t know. Can you walk to the main road?.
E: No. Why don’t you go on your own and get someone to help us and I will wait here?
D: NO! I would be crazy to leave you here alone again! (she smiles) I think … we have no option but wait until daylight to go get some help.
E: Alone you and me all night?
D: Yes… you and me… alone… You trust me, right?
D: Good. (holds her hands) Don’t worry. Everything will be fine. I will stay here with you all night.
E: You promise?
D: I swear it to you.
At car, Dano has built a bonfire. He goes back to the car and embraces Eva and they hear some wild dogs…
E: A coyote!! IT is dangerous if it is close, no?
D: Hey, hey,… I can protect you, no?..(she smiles and he embraces her) Take it easy.
At car, Dano has turned it up a notch, this is major smooching and foreplay at its best… Eva is visibly out of breath and uncomfortable.
D: What is the matter?
E: Nothing…. Why don’t we rather rest so we will be fine tomorrow?
D: No, no,no! Forget about tomorrow… are you afraid?
E: Afraid of what?
D: OF letting yourself go with this we are feeling?
(more foreplay and necking… she stops him again..)
E: Stop it, please, Daniel.
D: Why? Eva, if you and I love each other… and we will love each other forever… for the rest of our lives… (more smooching) … Eva, my love… do you want to spend the rest of your life with me? Eh? … eh? (this opens up Eva’s eyes, she is shocked)
[after living a hell, Eva was rescued by Daniel… and this coming Monday…]
D: I want you to be mine forever…
E: Swear to me you are not playing with me.
[The declaration that will change the direction of the story]
D: I need you at my side!...
[the question everyone was waiting for]
D: Do you want to spend the rest of your life with me?
[This is the moment!]
D: Tell me yes (that you will)… (she has deer in the headlights shock stare)
Dan The Man, our hero, no? He runs out of gas (I thought that was an adolescent boy thing) AND he can build fires in the most romantic places. I didn't see any blankets in the back of the car, but I'm sure he's prepared. About the other kind of preparedness, we'll have to see in a few weeks.
Wow what a great recap 2 hours and you got all the great bits. Thanks for the snap shots pic's.
Now that we have Dano pulling off the kid gloves sorta speak with the lot of them Leo, Marcella, and Vicky. and telling Don Julio that he doesn't love Vicky,and that he has broken the engagement too her. We are going to have all Hell breaking lose on him and Eva. I Think poor Dano as had his fill with Marcella and her whacked out offspring. b/c now he's proclaiming his love for Eva out in the open. remember he's only been kissing her and hugging her in private place's where they couldn't be seen by the general public. But now with this declaration of love (kissing her in front of the kids and pension) he's saying back off this women is mine. Alicia on the the other hand is playing with FIRE where Leo is concerned and she needs to be hose off and fast. Lord knows we don't need another crazy on the scene (Claw). Really-- ??? Franc & Marisol getting married (ok writers time to bust this open) I to was having STud withdrawals and found Alborada online since I didn't have to work all week I've just finish watching that. And all I can say is WOW the acting is so much better in that then this, not to be offensive to anyone. Anyway back to this TN, So I see Crazy Vicky now has another gun, good grief I've never seen a house that had so many handguns in it, I thought they lived in a upscale neighborhood? and there not the type of family to hunt for food? oh well.Michele in PA
in answer to you ?
who's going to end up with Georgio? My husband say's Leo? LOL
