El Talisman #58: 4/19/12- The Best Laid Plans....
There were no refritos from yesterday. So let's delve into this really heavy episode today. So much revealed.
Fabi and Army are talking still and waiting for Flor to make an appearance, when Flor comes around the corner and bumps into Angel. Flor is worried when she sees a car come up the drive. Angel introduces himself to her and tells her he is Armando's cousin and Flor tells him to tell Army to hurry up cause they will get in all kinds of trouble. Angel hurries over to Army and tells them they have to go, Fabi agrees and they leave El Alcatrash.
Tia Patty tells Pedro that Lucrazy left. He is concerned because she never got the money from him for an apartment and he is worried she will be on the street. Tia Patty says that is Lucrazy's concern. Pedro is happy Lucrazy is gone cause now he will be very happy with Cameela.
Tonio and Lucrazy talk and he tells Lucrazy not to worry. They will fix this.
Pigorio has summoned Lucas to El Alcatrash because Valentin doesn't want to kill Mariana so Lucas is given the job. He balks a little but takes the job. Pigorio tells Lucas that he wants both Mariana and Pedro dead.
Cameela is sleeping and dreaming of Pedro and the hot night they spent together and about her in a wedding dress and dancing with Pedro.
El Viral and Maria talk and El Viral tells Maria she is going to consult an attorney to see about getting that apartment from Rennie and spousal support. Tia Maria says she is going to work.
Rita and Rennie are talking about the money from Tonio again. Rennie tells her it will be 1 million he is seeking from Tonio. Rita wants to collect the money and leave. Rennie says something about El Viral I didn't catch.
Doris and Pigorio are in the Pig's bedroom. Doris asks about Tonio getting anything from El Alcatrash and Pigorio says his favorite line es Mio bawwww.
Tonio goes to see Yenny and tells her they will activate that plan and Lucrazy comes too, and she warns Yenny she better stick with the plan of telling Pedro what they want her to. She is scared.
Valentin and Lucas are spying on El Tal and looking at the cars.
Claudio is about the leave when Margarito comes in. Margarito wants 5 minutes of Claudio's time. He wants another chance to prove he is a good Papa,and he asks Claudio to forgive him. I think Claudio forgives him and walks out.
Cameela and Pedro are having breakfast and are happy to be together. Tia Patty comes and tells Pedro she is going to pick up his papers at the airport.
Flor and Claudio meet. She asks about his Papa again and Claudio tells her he forgave him. He smooches her and tells her he loves her. She is into the kiss, but isn't sure she loves him. She thought bubbles this to herself.
Claudio and Tia Patty leave for the airport in Gabe's new car, and Valentin and Lucas are following.
Lucrazy marches into El Tal with Yenny in tow. Lucrazy introduces Yenny to Pedro and Cameela recognizes Yenny and asks what she is doing there? Well Lucrazy goes into her spiel about Cameela hiring Yenny to make those phone calls, Yenny told Lucrazy herself, isn't that right? Pedro tells Lucrazy she is lying and Cameela would never do that. Lucrazy tells Pedro to look in Cameela's phone for proof. He says no way. He asks Yenny is this true, did you use Cameela's phone to call and pretend you were Mariana? Yenny says yes, and Cameela is all kinds of mad. Lucrazy keeps on in this vein and Pedro asks Yenny again did Cameela hire you? Yenny runs over to Cameela's side and spills the beans about how Lucrazy and Tonio put her up to this and that Tonio swore he would kill her if she told. Pedro tells Cameela and Yenny to leave him alone with Lucrazy. They go and Pedro finally lights into Lucrazy. He tells her she is crazy and nothing and noone is breaking him and Cameela up. He tells her to largate and never to darken the door of El Tal again. She tries the crying game, but Pedro yells at her to shut up and to Largate!!! She finally leaves. Pedro convinces Yenny to go to the police so she can tell them about this plan.
Tonio and Doris are out in the trees and Tonio tells Doris he is so happy they are divorced and now he can marry Cameela. Doris asks him what are you smoking (ed just kidding) and tells Tonio, Cameela will never marry him she is marrying Pedro. Tonio tells her too bad so sad but Pedro is still married to Mariana and she is alive. Doris isn't buying that Mariana is still alive. She smooches Tonio . Tonio pushes her away and here comes Pigorio. He yells at Tonio to stay away from Doris. Tonio asks him if he likes Doris, Pigorio tells him he is responsible for Doris. Tonio leaves and Doris thanks Pigorio. Pigorio grabs her hair and starts yanking on her head. He tells her he told her to say away from Tonio. He tells her he is throwing her out of El Alcatrash.
Manuel and Mariana are talking and Manuel tells her they are going to look into her past and see what is what.
Cameela talks to Yenny and asks her about why she told her there was a job in LA. Yenny tells her it was a plot by Lucrazy because she is crazy in love with Pedro and wanted Cameela out of the way. Not only that but Tonio is obessed with Cameela.
Tia Patty and Claudio finally get to the airport. Tia Patty told Claudio that his Papa is a good guy and he should give him a chance. Tia Patty says let's get a coffe while we wait, and Claudio tells her sure as long as we don't talk about Margo. Valentin and Lucas are watching the car.
Lucrazy catches up with Tonio and tells him everything that happened with Pedro. They are both stark raving mad, (literally).
Pigorio is back at El Alcatrash and is throwing Doris' clothes all over the room and telling her she got to go. She is begging and pleading with him, but he tells her to Largate. She is very pithed.
Mariana and Manuel are at the Fresno airport and they see Tia Patty and Claudio with Beatriz. Mariana looks at Tia Patty but doesn't recognize her. Tia Patty and Claudio don't see Mariana. Manuel and Mariana leave.
Tia Patty and Claudio meet up with Beatriz who is an old friend of Tia Patty's. Beatriz gives the papers to Tia Patty and says she wants to know when the wedding is cause she wants to come. Tia Patty tells her she will let her know. While Tia Patty and Claudio are inside the airport, Lucas puts a device on the car and then they wait for Tia Patty, Claudio and Mariana to come out.
Pigorio goes into his office with Panchito trailing him. Panchito keeps asking what is wrong and gets Pigorio a drink. Pigorio tells Panchito he threw Doris out. Panchito wants to know where she will go, Pigorio says to Madame Brigette's of course. Panchito can't beleive she will live in the house of ill repute.
Doris is talking to Fabi and Flor and they ask her what is going on? She tells them she is leaving. They don't want her to go, but she says she has her reasons and will not be in the street, but staying with a friend of hers. The girls help her pack.
Tia Patty and Claudio come out of the airport and get in the car. Valentin and Lucas are still watching and Valentin is perturbed that Mariana isn't with them. He tells Lucas we can't just kill them, Mariana should have been there too. Lucas tries to stop the device from going off, but he can't it isn't working. Claudio starts the car, and nothing happens so Valentin thinks the device may have been a dud.
Yenny talks to El Capitan and tells him the whole plan of Lucrazy and Tonio. Cameela tells El Capitan that Yenny really is a victim of Lucrazy and Tonio. Pedro tells El Capitan details of what they tried to do and that Pedro really beleives Mariana is dead.
Pedro and Cameela go back to El Tal and talk about their upcoming wedding and that Cameela would like to have Tracy prepare the food. They talk about Tia Patty and Pedro says she has been like a Mother to him.
Tia Patty and Claudio have stopped somewhere, maybe to get that coffee. Valentin and Lucas are still behind them watching them. Claudio starts the car, starts to drive off and it explodes.
Valentin and Lucas are there when the police come and the rescue squad. Valentin doesn't want to be there because he is nervous of the police and all the questions they will ask, but Lucas says theyhave to stay and answer any question they have. If they don't and try to leave the police will be suspicious.
Back at El Tal Cameela and Pedro continue to talk about their upcoming wedding. Cameela say she wants lots of flowers. Margarito comes in and Pedro asks how it went with Claudio. Margo tells him and Pedro tells him Claudio is a good boy and will come around.
Tonio and Lucrazy are still talking about Pedro and Cameela and what are they going to do now. Doris comes out and tells Tonio he'll never marry Cameela and Tonio swears Mariana is alive and Pedro can't marry her. Doris is trying to goad him, but she tells him she is leaving.
Finally in the comedy of the afternoon, El Viral has called a lawyer to handle her divorce from Rennie. I think the lawyer's name is Lic Menendez. He asks how he can be of service. She tells him she wants half of Rennie's assets and the apartment. The lawyer asks her how many children do they have together? She says none. He asks how long she has been married? She says one day. The lawyer looks at her and says, Guess what you don't get anything. El Viral's shocked face is as priceless as her headband. There we end today.
Someone is led off on a stretcher.
Finally Pedro has stood up to Lucrazy and kicked her to the curb. I am really happy about that.
Thanks for the recap. What a busy episode. I will hate it if something happens to Aunt Patty. She is my favorite.
Evile-ra is so, uh, VILE. That's it.
But the joy is ruined by blowing up Tia Patty right before she finds out her niece is alive and Claudio just before he reconciles with his dad. I just don't see how they could survive this, and certainly not both. If one makes it, it'll probably be Claudio, leaving no one to tell Mariana that Pedro is a nice guy, even if they do have Yenny to tell everyone what a complete jerk Antonio is.
For this I want Lucas and Gregorio to suffer mightily. Even Valantin no longer gets a pass. He should go down too.
Except for the explosion this episode had a lot of good stuff. I was shocked that Yenny confessed. Finally! I'm surprised she has any hair left the way LooKrazy and Tony kept yanking on it. I hope they don't do anything bad to Yenny and that the police protect her.
I loved Elvira's face when the Licenciado told her she gets nada. I'm kind of sorry, though, that she couldn't stick it to Renato. Why didn't she press charges against him?
And yowza, El Pig kicked Doris out but he was bummed out and warning Panchito to never fall in love. I guess Pigorio's got it bad for Doris after all.
Madelaine, thank you for the great recap of a very good episode. I think you got all the important details. Nice job!
Like others, my joy over Pedro kicking Lucrazy to the curb and the Yenny nightmare being over is tempered by the possible deaths of Tia Patty and Claudio. ITA Kelly that Piggy AND both henchmen must suffer!
I loved Pedro evicting Lulu. She was breathing fire and I think I saw smoke coming out of her nose and ears. Just wait until the police come to pay her a visit again.
Pobre Doris, she also gets evicted. Maybe she and Lulu can set up their own house of ill repute.
¡BOOM! Who saw that coming?
And just like that... Yenny sinks Lucrazy and Tony... I sure wasn't expecting that either.
So, I guess now we know that Cheez Whiz will be served at the wedding reception.
Looks like the same Mariachis show up for both Camila's and Pedro's dreams.
We should have suspected foul play ahead when Gabriel bought a brand new Ford instead of a Chevy. I wonder if he and Sarita got to test drive it before... ¡BOOM!?
Carlos, you don't miss a single detail - LOL
Carlos loved your comment. You had me laughing.
About El Viral and the Lic. She may have told him she was only married for a week, instead of a day. I was so shocked by what happened before that scene I may have missed what she said. A week makes more sense to me. El Viral only lived with him as a wife maybe a day though, I think.
Volt- you live
I surmised yesterday that something was going to happen to the documents Beatrice brought. They probably got exploded along with the occupants of Gabriel's brand new car. (HaHa, Kelly, Chevy ordering the hit....but Gregorio is not innocent of this one--he's an accessory after the fact and just as guilty of the deed as Lucas and Valentin.)
Claudio did not forgive his father. Margarito said perdoname, siempre te queri, while Claudio shook his head. As Claudio walked out he said I always loved you to his dad, but couldn't forgive him. I think Claudio was Margarito's only child, so it will be especially tragic for him if he doesn't make it. Flo may cry for a little while, but she just met a cute substitute in Angel.
Pedro said about Aunt Pat, when he and Camila were discussing the wedding plans, that she showed up when he most needed comfort after Mariana's disappearance and yes, she thought of him as a son. It will be a tragedy for him, too, to lose her, and as others said, just before finding out Mariana is alive.
I don't understand how Lucas is going to exact payment when they didn't get Mariana and they know it. Are they going to pretend she was exploded, too? Hmmm.
So, Little Lulu and Trashy Toni's little games got exploded. Thank goodness and thank you, new writers. Under the old team, these little juegitos might have gone on until ultimas semanas.
I felt for poor little Yenny. It wasn't enough for Tonio to tell her that he would matar her, he told her that if she didn't follow instructions, he would kill her, but not just that, he was going to torture her until she begged to be killed. He deserves no clemency for thinking that way. In addition, remember he beat Mariana, beat his sister, is trying to poison his father and apparently used to beat Doris. He needs to be put over someone's knees and whipped with his own belt buckle.
I got a big laugh out of Tia Maria saying she had to go to work and she was wearing something more akin to a bowling team uniform. She didn't waste any time getting a job in Fresno, though. Maybe she's working in the Only Yoghurt Shoppe in Fresno, or at Tal*Mart.
I kinda chuckled at Elvira saying she'd only been married for a day. Of course she is still married until she actually gets divorced. She was probably interpreting that as how long had they co-habited before she separated.
And Pedro is being unrealistic, delusional or just plain blindly in love if he thinks they can go find a judge to marry them as soon as they get the papers. Doesn't it take some official process to declare someone dead...and has it been seven years? Or has California (aka Florida) changed that law, too.
Oh, that is sad about Claudio not forgiving Margarito. If Claudio doesn't make it, that makes it twice as bad for Margarito. Also poor Tia Patty,she never even saw her neice there at the airport. Mariana looked directly at her but didn't recognize her. That was really sad. That would be sad if she doesn't make it, cause her neice was right there almost in front of her.
Anita it is seven years to be declared dead no matter what state. It is rare on certain occasions to do it sooner. Have seven years passed here? I thought it was more like five maybe? I think Pedro is in such a hurry because so much has happened to keep him and Cameela apart. Wait until he finds out Mariana is alive.
If someone said 10, then the script people or continuity didn't catch it.
That still leaves several years they would have to wait to have Mariana declared dead. So we're kinda back to square one.
Guess I'll go watch Friday's episode and see if that gets clarified.
See you all soon. Anita
