Una familia con suerte 2-29; in which Berto gives advice everybody should take (breath deeply and get over yourself)
Vince tells Enzo that Pancho is Fer's son. And that he falsified the DNA results. "Actually I didn't do it, I paid a tech to do it. Now you see why I need your - discretion." If Pancho is Fer's son, he will inherit her Avon holdings.
Enzo's stunned by Vince's bold skulduggery. "What if your aunt finds out?" "How can she? The tech is now living happily in Australia with koalas and kangaroos. But the worst of it is, Pancho and I are cousins!" Enzo laughs. Luckily Candy is not really Pancho's brother or Vince would be in love with his first cousin. But Ana and Freddie -- are they cousins for real?
Speaking of the King of Rome, Freddy is beaming at Ana at the Lopez dinner table. A big pink box is carried in; Ana lifts the box and there's a cake under it, and on the cake is her new cd called "Una Familia Con Suerte," with pictures of: Laura, Pancho, I dunno who, Rebe, Chela, Pepe and Moni, Sandrucha, Candy with somebody behind her I can't recognize, and Ana. I would have thought her BAND members would get on the cover not her random family members. But I don't make the news, I just report it. Freddy is proud of Ana, she is looking forward to touring and press coverage etc. Candy decides to help out and appoints herself manager and representative of Ana Lopez.
Tomas is in jail thinking his sister killed Dud. Elena has - wait for it - AMNESIA! She is calling Tomas but he can't answer - because he's in jail, duh.
Chela admits to Pancho she liked kissing him.
Fer's doctor must have proposed to her and she must not have said yes (yet). Lupe tells the doc there seems to be a cloud of love around them. "I adore Fer, I've loved her for years," he says - and for once somebody overhears something to their advantage! Fer creeps in and tells the doc she loves him too.
Rebe is not enjoying dinner with Mike and is drinking a lot of Tequila. She's pissed thinking Pancho is lovin' Chela (must have seen them kissing). Rebe drinks more tequila. "Remember our first kiss, at the beach," Mike mutters revoltingly. He makes Rebe close her eyes. "Remember the sun, the ocean, our love..."
He closes in with his pink lipstick and she doesn't pull away, but she doesn't reciprocate with enthusiasm. Yuk, he's a terrible kisser! Somebody hiding behind a handy column is taking pictures.
Finally Rebe recoils and says, "Wouldn't you have preferred kissing a corpse? With this, you've killed the memory of our first kiss. I'm angry and confused and I don't want to be here." She stalks out. Mike calls his assistant Lidia Hot Pants and she joins him at the restaurant. When he tells her he kissed Rebe, she gets mad, says she's jealous, and leaves.
Pancho is staggering around disturbed by Chela's love.
Vince asks Enzo to put the love-nest apartment in Candy's name, because she wants it that way. Enzo gives him 'egg eyes.'
Arnold can't get in touch with Pina in Brussels, he's worried about her. He notices Rebeca is in the dumps. "A few days ago I was excited about marrying Pancho, now I want to forget him."
In the meeting, Enzo tells Pancho he broke up with Chela. They're very chummy now that they got blotto together. Rebe comes in and won't look up.
Tomas is let out of his cell and taken to a guy in charge who points out Tomas was caught with a bloody towel, cleaning some murder weapon (boy, this is all new to me, I haven't watched since last Wednesday). I guess Tomas thinks his sister (an amnesiac, remember...) killed the Dud: Tomas therefore "admits" he killed the guy (to save his sister from hanging for it).
The Avon and Belle Face meeting is no laugh riot. Everybody is formal and nobody looks up. The real value of Belle Face has been established. Vince says Pina can't be at the meeting. Mike admits (I'm not sure why) that he committed fraud in the past and let Rebe take the blame; he praises her and says she is honest etc. Vince complains it isn't relevant.
Vince and Pancho shout childishly at each other in the meeting. Arnold tells everybody to breathe deeply and relax.
Elsewhere, Lupita has evil foreboding while, in prison, Tomas signs his confession and cries.
Rebe coldly informs Chela: "Now you have a clear field to get what you've always wanted." But on her way in to see Pancho, Chela runs into Enzo; he drops his papers, their hands touch, they have a long moment nose to nose. And, I am thrilled to see, the episode ends, it's just one hour tonight! Hurrah!
I loved Dona Fer and Dr. Octavio, they are very cute together.
So now Enzzo knows what Vince has done. I am glad Enzzo knows. Maybe he will rat him out to Pancho and Dona Fer.
Loved the Chela Enzzo moment. They still look very much in love. I hope Chela wakes up and goes with Enzzo.
What is up with Pancho and that nervous tic of his shoulder and eyes? It is too funny when he does it.
I think the album cover probably is of the family because the songs are about her family. When she wrote one of the songs they performed earlier, it was about what was going on with the family.
Melinama, thanks for the recap. I have the same question are Ojos and Pollis for real cousins?! Surely not. They did sleep together, right?
I liked how you described the column as "handy". Nice of that restaurant to put it there.
According to my DVR the schedule looks the same next week, but then the DVR didn't show LQNPA following soccer until Tuesday.
The other members of Sin Ton Ni Son must be THRILLED with their new album. Sheesh. I know the Lopez clan is an uber special snowflake family but they aren't the ones slaving away in the studio.
Great ending with Chela and Enzo shooting sparks. I hope I don't have to recap them screwing it up. They have so much chemistry and potential, whereas Chela with Pancho has all the romance of a mutt chasing and slobbering on the mailman, hoping to finally get a pat on the head and a dog biscuit.
Once again, great police work. Aren't they going to check the security camera footage and interview the staff and maybe figure out that Tomas didn't arrive at the hotel until hours after Cris died? I hope he gets a decent lawyer.
Blech, I totally agree that Mike is a terrible kisser. He doesn't even try. He's a lazy kisser (and probably lover) and a cheat. Run Rebe, run!
Do we have two mysterious watchers? Someone was watching Christian and Elena and likely drugged them. Tonight someone was watching Mike and Rebe.
What a boring album cover.
Julie, "Chela with Pancho has all the romance of a mutt chasing and slobbering on the mailman, hoping to finally get a pat on the head and a dog biscuit." Well you certainly summed up their relationship nicely, hee!
Ana & Freddy? Second cousins is not as bad as first cousins -- but still. Someone on this site once speculated about Freddy's parentage -- but after that sweet farewell between Pina & Vince when they signed the divorce papers and they both told each other that they had chosen the right partner to produce Freddy. Well that seems clear. On the other hand what if Vince isn't who HE thinks he is?
So it looked as if the kiss with Mike settled things for Rebe. If I got it right she didn't feel anything from that kiss. Too bad Pancho & Chela aren't quite there.
I am with y'all about Mike and Rebe and the kiss. It was very yukky. There was no chemistry at all. There wasn't with Pancho and Chela either.
I like how Arnold told everyone to take a deep breath in and out. lol
I do hope Enzzo turns Vince in and tells Chela the truth.
Arath always seems to do that eye rolling thing in his novelas. He did in constantly in Zacatillo when he played 2 characters.
Pepe - I am wondering did he really suffer a hand injury and they wrote that in? Usually with these type of injuries the person is cured the next day.
Even though I fastforward with Elena, I can't imagine who would want to kill Christian and how that snuck up on this TN.
Another question during the japanese scenes was that Arath's wife?
It never occurred to me that all the watchers were the same. I assumed that the one who drugged Cristian & Elena was the wife or someone getting revenge for her -- or an old lover. Anyway I though that one was a love triangle thing. But..... if all the watchers are the same could it be that Napoleon guy getting back at Candy??
-- or Ines trying to destroy everyone around Fernanda? -- or Violetta just being crazy & trying to destroy Pepe? -- or all of the above?
They sure have served up a bunch of
Nellie, I think you are referring to the Japanese scenes where Pancho is learning to use chopsticks - that is Rebe dressed as a geisha, face paint and all. They were preparing for meeting with some people from Japan.
no hay pex - no problem. "Pex" seems to mean "fart" so this is not a phrase for polite company
occiso - murder victim
Does anyone know what "dejar de seis" or "dejar de a seis" means? I heard that last night but can't find a meaning for it. It didn't seem to be meant literally.
Missed this and after hearing about the Mike/Rebe kiss, quite glad that I did.
Julia, your vocab question is a puzzler. Maybe our guy recapper, J.R.? who understands Mexican slang can help us.
Guera, I don't think Vince and Pina said they chose the right person to PRODUCE Freddy. They each said they chose the right partner to be his parent. This nitpick may or may not be significant - I've wondered if he might be adopted himself.
Julia - Chela-mutt chasing Pancho-mailman - LOL! All too sadly accurate. Might there be a flip-flop on the horizon - with Pancho pining for Chela, and Chela otherwise occupied?
"dejar de seis" - maybe it's something like deep-sixing something, i.e., burying it? (I don't remember the context).
I'm still ticked at the Pancho and Chela kissing, and now Rebe and Mike. Ick, enough!
I sure hope Tomas' prison scenes start getting funny. How ironic that just when he finally has his makeover, he winds up in prison duds.
