El Talisman #65: 4/30/12: The Aftermath, A Truth Revealed and El Cheque
Previously on El Talisman:
Today on El Talisman:
Tonio and Lucrazy are so very happy that the wedding was stopped. For some odd reason Lucrazy thinks that Pedro will now be Mio! Tonio tells her she should be more concerned about getting her part of Alcatrash, cause he is going to ensure they both do that, tout suite,today.
Maria and El Viral, the gasbag, are talking and Maria tries to convince El Viral to go and talk to her devasted daughter, El Viral won't go, so Tia Maria goes instead.
Pigorio is laying in the hospital bed looking remarkably healthy. Panchito is playing with one of the medical machines in the room. Pigorio says so Pedro and Cameela are getting married. Too bad for Lucrazy. Panchito says what about Tonio who is so in love with Cameela? Pigorio says that's his problem. He makes Panchito stop playing with the machine. Panchito tells him to stay calm. Pigorio tells Panchito once he is up and on his feet Al Catrash is MIO!!!
Mariana is still in the trees with Santiago. Mariana wants to know what he is doing there? He says he was just watching and Santiago tells Mariana that Pedro betrayed him. Mariana wants to get out of there, as does Santiago so they go.
Maria goes to Cameela and talks to her. Maria tells Cameela that Pedro could not have known Mariana was still alive. He is not the type of person to do this to Cameela. Maria says pack your things, you are coming with me to the apartment. Cameela doesn't want to go because the gasbag, oh excuse me, her Mama will be there and will give her all kinds of grief. Maria says not gonna happen sweetie, she will make sure and Tia Maria insists she come home with her.
Padre Sebastian tells the assembled guests that due to what just happened there will be no wedding today. He asks the guests to go on home now and please don't gossip about what happened here today. The would be bride and groom would appreciate it.
El Viral wants to leave this instant and wants a taxi, she is not riding with her heartbroken daughter and her sister Maria. Army says what evs he isn't going with her. She tells Army she wants to go to the police so they can help her recover that Cheque that is owed to her. Army can't believe her.
Pedro has gone to talk to Cameela. She says she wants to be alone, and that they have nothing to talk about. He wants her to wait cause he still wants to marry her, he just needs Mariana to recover her memory. Cameela wants to know how long will that take, months, years? Pedro keeps telling Cameela he loves her, its not an illusion and he will do whatever it takes to fix this problem. She keeps crying. He tells her he loves her and leaves.. shutting the door behind him. She tells the door she loves Pedro.
Tracy goes up and helps Cameela take off her wedding dress. She tells Cameela that Pedro truly loves her, and wouldn't do anything to hurt her. Cameela says her heart is broken. Tracy keeps telling her Pedro loves her. Cameela doesn't want to hear it, so Tracy promises she will say no more about it. She promises she won't say where Cameela went.
Geno has put Cameela's things in Tia Maria's car. She promises she won't tell Pedro where Cameela has gone.
Pedro and Margarito are talking and he tells Margarito he never knew where Mariana was, dead or alive, until she showed up today. Padre comes in and tells Pedro he needs to find Mariana and talk to her, and Pedro says he needs to find Santiago too.
Mariana and Santiago are now at Mariana's apartment. Santiago looks like he is starving. He scarfs down some food, while Mariana makes a call to Dr. Manuel. She tells Dr. Manuel she stopped Pedro and Cameela's wedding. He needs him. He says he is on is way. Mariana asks Santiago why he left Pedro's. Was it because of Cameela? Santiago tells Mariana no, Cameela is nice but Pedro betrayed him by calling the police on him. Santiago is done eating and wants to leave. Mariana tries to get him to stay, but he says he'll see her tomorrow. Dr. Manuel has come home. She tells Dr. Manuel in detail what happened and she feels sorry for Pedro. She knows he is in love with Cameela. Manuel tells her she needs to talk to Pedro. Mariana doesn't want to because Tonio keeps insisting Pedro is bad. Manuel tells Mariana that Tonio doesn't like Pedro and she should stop listening to Tonio.
Tonio is at the hospital with his lawyer, and sees the Dr. Tonio asks if Pigorio can now sign papers? The Dr. says oh yeah, and hey by the way we found some poison in your Dad's blood, know anything about that? Tonio looks shocked, I tell you shocked! He doesn't know Anything about that. Tonio goes into Pigorio's room with his lawyer. Tonio wants Panchito to Largate, but Pigorio says he stays. Tonio wants Pigorio to sign the papers. One quarter part of Alacatrash to Tonio, one quarter part to Lucrazy and if he loses his facilites (when has he ever had them?) the half goes to Tonio. Pigorio signs the papers and Pigorio tells Panchito, to guess what? Right, Largate. Pigorio tells Tonio when his is out of the bed and back home El Alcatrash is, wait for it, MIO!!!!!
Gabe, Sarita and Pedro are talking and Sarita asks if he needs some pills for his nerves? He says no, he just wants to make everything right. Pedro goes to look for Cameela, but she is gone and has left him a letter. She says she loves him, but can't wait around until Mariana gets her memory back. She says they just weren't meant to be, and it would be better if she left. Pedro runs into Tracy and asks her if she knows where Cameela went. Tracy is not a good liar and caves and tells Pedro where she went. Pedro is going to look for her.
Angel and Army have gone to El Alcatrash to find Fabi. This time it is a daytime jaunt. They run into Alberta and Lucrazy. Lucrazy has just been going on and on about Pedro's non wedding. Alberta tries to run the boys off, but Lucrazy makes her stop. She knows that Army is Fabi's boyfriend and Flor's fake boyfriend and what does he want? Army says he wants to talk to Fabi. Lucrazy says if you help me with Cameela, I'll let you talk to Fabi. Army says no way Jose, she tells him too bad, so sorry, Largate. Angel tells Lucrazy that's ok, we can talk to Fabi outside of the ranch. Army and Angel leave, but Flor has heard Army and she goes chasing after them and demands an explanation of what happened. Army tells her all about the dreaded venganza of his gasbag mother, oops did it again, and that he only loves Fabi punto. Flor is so not down with this. Army insists it is the truth and he and Angel leave. In the house Nana is telling Fabi that Army is outside and Flor is talking to him. Nana tells her she should be the one talking to Army.
As Tonio is leaving the hospital he stops by Dr. Raul's office, because Dr. Raul wanted to see him. He tells Tonio about the poison in Pigorio's blood that they found. Do you know anything about that! Oh, nos I don't, but ya know he had a lover named El Viral who is now his enemy. She probably did it. Dr. Raul ain't buying what Tonio is selling. Tonio goes on and on about Pigorio dumping El Viral and so on, but Dr. Raul says he has many enemies, you perhaps? Tonio wants to know if Dr. Raul has called the cops, but Dr. Raul hasn't. Tonio says keep the gasbag in mind, I mean El Viral, he also tells Dr. Raul that Cameela is friend of mine, and the Dr. wants to know if Cameela might know anything about this? The Doctor is not buying that Cameela is a friend of Tonio's. The Dr. says he isn't telling Pigorio, but his keeping his eye on Tonio. He tells the Dr. that it is good that Mariana is back that Tonio is also a friend to Mariana. The doctor says no Negrete is a friend of Mariana's. Tonio tells him Pigorio won't do anything to Mariana. The Dr. asks Tonio if he is the poisoner? Tonio says no but think about El Viral.
The Gasbag just happens to be at the police station spewing her gas at the police about El Cheque, if you please. The cop gets the investigator, not El Capitan, that first investigated Mariana's disapperance. The Investigator wants to know all about what she is spewing. The Gasbag tells the Investigator how Mariana just happened to show up at the wedding, and how that Cheque is Mio. The Investigator tells her, very interesting. El Viral is trying to call Army, who of course is not picking up his cell, I wonder why? Doesn't want poison gas is my opinion.
Maria has taken Cameela home with her. They have a chat and Maria tells her she will make sure her Mama will not bother her. Maria tells Cameela Pedro really loves Cameela and that she should fight for him. Maria tries to convince her that Pedro never would have married her if he knew Mariana was alive. Cameela is just not buying it, because by this point she is pithed (thank you Carlos) and is having a pity party. Maria tells her to think about it. Maria is going out and concerned about Cameela. Cameela says not to worry no one knows she is there. Maria leaves. Cameela thought bubbles about the wedding interrumptus and there is a knock on the door, it is Mariana. Mariana tells Cameela she wants to talk to her. She doesn't want to talk to her, but Mariana insists. Mariana wants to know why Cameela was marrying a married man? Cameela tells Mariana that when noone could find her, Pedro thought she was dead. Cameela thought he was single and free and that is why she married him. Cameela wants to know why Mariana stopped the wedding? Was it to hurt her? Mariana tells her no, but for legal reasons she had to stop the wedding. She says I'm alive. Cameela tells her you are the only wife of Pedro Ibarra. Mariana says she has no memory of what happened before and it is necessary for her to talk to Cameela. Cameela doesn't want to hear anymore and she tells Mariana to go.
Next time on El Talisman:
Pedro goes to see Cameela
Lucrazy has a gun at it is pointed at Pedro!
I feel bad for Cameela but I don't. She needs to stand on her own two feet and fight for the man she loves. She knows all of Pedro's past history. She should have talked to Mariana more.
I'm kind of vexed with Mariana's "I have to stop this wedding but won't stay around to talk to anyone after I've caused all this calamity." She let Tony manipulate her like a wind-up toy and didn't think about the consequences of her actions. Are we supposed to believe her amnesia has also clouded basic rational thought as well. Like Vivi said, she trusts the man who shows all signs of being an alcoholic and a woman with hair that is a crime over the nice guy in the white suit. Whatever.
Thank goodness Manuel keeps telling her to stop trusting the Negete family. And her interactions with Pedro (the little that she had) were not of a person who would harm her. Get a clue chica.
On a positive note, I was happy Army didn't try to make a deal with Lucrazy. He hasn't made the best decisions in this TN so I was pleased (but Angel was coaching him too).
I love how you always lead in with "Now wait for it...es MIO".
Karen, I was also shocked that Armando wouldn't cut a deal with LuKrazy, only because every decision he makes is utterly stupid. I think you are right about Angel coaching him, the kid is starting to wise up.
I wish Tia Maria would come home and help Cameela and Mariana have a conversation. That's too much to hope for I guess.
The Padre asking people not to gossip...bwahahaha! Obviously he does not know that gossiping is the #1 pastime at both El Tal and El Trash.
Cami was way out of line. She knew how Pedro, et al had looked for Mariana, she should have been delighted that she was still alive. The formal wedding could have been put on hold without all of the histrionics. (I really didn't like the dress she chose. I liked the first one she tried on.)
I am beginning to think that ElViral and Pigorio were twins separated at birth with all of their, ready now, MIOs.
I liked Elviral's togs too, but the hat not so much. I hate to say it, but it looked like a pimp hat, just saying.
Blue Lass I don't know how Lucrazy found out about Army but she listens at corners and the gossip is rampant there so maybe that is how she found out.
Today Camila proved to be almost as much of a nitwit as her mom. She all but asked poor Mariana why couldn't she have just stayed dead. Way to make someone feel welcome. Isn't Mariana the one with the money as well as the owner of El Talisman?
The early scene with the Pig and Pancho held out such promise. The medical machine that Pancho was diddling with was the defibrillator. Drat... a missed opportunity for some sparks. Pig said, "... and stop that, you're going to break it or electrocute yourself." I was hoping for a bit of the latter.
I was disappointed in Pedro, too. When he picked up Camila's wedding dress off the bed... he didn't sniff it. What kind of galan is that? I'll bet that Tony would have.
Blue Lass, I agree, Flo's "oh hiiiii Angel." was so cute.
I still don't see how being back at the apartment with her mother is better than the guest house of El Tal. Seems like the fertilizer shack of El Tal would be better than any space with her mother.
But it seems like Angel is back to work as a real life angel / brain for Armando. He should go for Flor. She seems like she'd be fun when not pining over some fake twin.
as far as Pigorio and Panchito went. lol. Maybe a shock would clear Panchito's brain.
Karen so agree with you about Mariana. She stops the wedding and does stay to talk. I can't beleive either that she continues to listen to Tonio. Even Manuel told her to stop.
Cap'n I'm with you too about Maria mediating a meeting between Mariana and Cameela when they are both calm and will listen to each other.
Rosemary Primera with you about Pigorio and El Viral. They should be twins with Mio Cheque and Mio Alcatrash.
And Cap'n I don't know where she is getting the refills but I have a feeling it builds up in her body and she just has to release when it is about to burst her body. lol.
Sorry. I'm a little sleep-deprived.
I wonder what happened to Pigorio's lust for El Tal. He hasn't done anything lately to try to get it. He did in the beginning all the time. Maybe he is too focused on El Alcatrash es Mio. lol
