Qué Bonito Amor #67 (Mex 100-101.1) Tuesday 7/16/13 The more things change the more they stay the same
Amalia and Ruben face-off
The mariachis then get ready to put on a show for the couple that's celebrating 50 years of marriage, the main attraction of course are Coloso, Maria and Jorge, Coloso starts off the show by dedicating a song to Maria, I'm not familiar with the song but if anyone knows what it was please let me know. After ending the song he kisses Marias hand (does he have no shame!?) with both Jorge and Ruben looking on. Maria then sings "Si nos dejan" clearly letting both Ruben and Coloso know that she belongs to Jorge and only Jorge.
At the end of the song she shares a smooch with Jorge and I might have missed something here because next thing I know a mini fight has broken out, Concho has to come on stage and apologize for the behavior of his employees.
Eventually they go back stage where we once again we have a fist fight between Coloso and you guessed it, Jorge, I've said it before and I'll say it again, the fights have gotten old, I don't know if the writers are too lazy to think of other ways to create drama or if this is something that the audience in Mexico is okay with (like all the god awful gay jokes in PEAM) but this is neither funny nor dramatic, it's just freaking tired and played out and it really does make me want to punch a head Televisa writer. Anyhoo, these two are fighting because Coloso kissed Marias hand and this is a no no, Jorge had said that if he ever touched Maria again he would kill him. Coloso informs him that he will touch Maria any time he wants, which makes Maria jump into the fight, finally they manage to control the situation and people seem to calm down.
In El Lay
Wendy finds out that her dad called Amalia and throws a fit, she wonders what her dad wants with someone of such low class, Justo explains that Amalia and Maria are going to be part of their family and that she needs to learn to cope with that, the same way he and Jorge had to accept the fact tha she wanted to marry Bruno, even though he was responsible for all their woes. That shuts her up real quick, let us all pray that poor Mike does not end up with this girl, he deserves better!
Join us tomorrow when Maria goes to confront Ruben!
It's long past time when Maria should have told both Oscar and Ruben point-blank with a witness present that she is not some blow-up doll either of them can possess.
For once Amalia called Ruben on his crap but I don't think she went quite far enough. What does he intend to do with Maria when he's tired of her? Amalia doesn't know that he owns a strip joint and we don't really know what the "merchandise" is that Fabian referred to.
Now I think he is a flesh peddler in view of how Irasema reacted to him.
I think we had another continuity screw up. I distincly remember Fernando telling Ana he loved her and now we have all this angst in the convo with JAntos. I'm pretty sure he does love her but he is God Almighty terrified hence that scene when he prayed to the poor over worked multitasking Virgin.
I don't think Fabnot who is now even less fab is Irasema pimp. I think he is the guy that betrayed her and turned her out. If he and Ruben were in the flesh peddling business Ruben would probably have known who she was. Also Fabnot mentioned he had known her a long time and he seemed to tell Irasema he had finally found her. That would imply a longer search than the few days or weeks since she left the stroll.In any event he has her downright terrified.
ENOUGH ALREADY WITH THE FIGHTS - geez are these guys 12 years old.
Laughed at Justo telling Whiney the facts that nobody like Bruno and dealt with it and she better buck up and accept the Mendozas.
What Amalia said to Ruben was very well put, I thought. Loved the zinger about abandoning his wife. However, it made him furious and determined to seek revenge. I can’t see how saying anything stronger to him would have had any better result.
Maria most definitely needs to be very clear and direct with Rub and Coloso that she is not interested in either of them and never will be, they may not touch her, she doesn’t need their protection, and they both need to take a hike. Since she should have done this before even the first episode, I am not optimistic that she’s going to do it now. However, I blame the stupid writers of this stupid TN, not her. She is their victim, just as we are.
“ENOUGH ALREADY WITH THE FIGHTS” In absolutely total agreement. This valentine, with all its soft focus, flowers and lace, is a ladies’ TN. How many of us like to watch fist fights? It is beyond ridiculous.
That song that Coloso sang is the worst ear worm in the world. If you are willing to take the risk, here’s a nice version by Javier Solis: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25ocpYbbI0w
Leti, Leti, Leti. Being an idiot. You are doing it exactly right. Does she understand that Adventuro was canned for diddling with another woman? And what kind of person who works in a bar would EVER give ANY personal information about a female coworker to a male customer? Arrgh!!! *head, wall, head, wall, head, wall*
The problem with Lourdes, Concho, and Elvirus (well, one problem at least) is that the sort of tough love they are trying to give her is about 20 years too late. If they had started this when she was a toddler, they may have had some success. Or not, given the material they are working with. Elvirus just gotta be Elvirus. But it sure as heck isn’t going to work now.
Wendy still doesn't know that OJ is a bad guy, and she now has a lot more damaging stuff to tell him. I really don't want to see OJ come to DF, find Maria and Santos, and make all sorts of trouble for them. Really. I don't.
Thank you, Eli, for a fine recap with lots of great snark!
Back when Ira told JAntos her story she said she met a guy and he offered her a job but the job truned out to be prostitution. He betrayed her trust in him 'Turned her out is a street term for sending a woman out on the street to sell herself. I think Fabnot is that guy. She also took all her savings and gave them to another streetwalker to pay the pimp. Sooner or later we'll find out if Fabnot was her last pimp or the rat bastard that turned her into a prostitute when she was in her teens.
Fabnot may have thought that Maria was too intelligent to be good "merchandise", virginity notwithstanding. Now that she is no longer a virgen (and had a man who cares about her pleasure) she is of no value to Ruben except as an outlet for his abuse.
He will really go off the edge tonight when he finds out she is pregnant.
Ruben will go over the edge, he was already pithed when he thought erroneously at the time that JAntos had spend the night with Maria. Even so he was willing to overlook it but pregnant he can't overlook at since he is obsessive to begin with obsession turns quickly to hate. Now she is in real danger from him. She is merely an annoyance to Fabnot who focuses on business and profit and pleasing the GF at all times.
Fabnot is going to be distracted by Irasema who clearly got away from him and flesh peddlers won't stand for that. Of all the evil guys, the GF, OJ, Ruben and Fabnot he is the most dangerous. The GF, OJ and especially Ruben shout, glare and threaten but Fabnot turns cold and is quietly menacing and I think more deadly then all the rest of them.
Amalia has never seen that side of him because he is cold and calculating enough to have not allowed that to happen. Maria had not previously been exposed to this kind of danger and now she needs to learn about it before it strikes.
However, it probably will. If Santos has to go to L.A. she should go with him. She is in more danger from Ruben than from the Padrino.
Agree that Maria's biggest danger is from Ruben. The problem is that none of them except perhaps JAntos realize how dangerous he is. Last night JA did try to force him to admit in front of her that Ruben had been the kidnapper. That might put her on guard but Amelia would never believe it.
The GF only wants his money and doesn't seem to be overly interested personally in Santos. Now OJ should he find out how much Maria means to Santos could try and find a way to use her to get to Santos.
If Santos goes to LA Maria should absolutely go with him.
Lots of great snarky lines!
"I guess it sucks to be you today dear Ruben."
"Someone needs to give her a copy of "he's just not that into you" and a hug." LOL! Absolutely!
"…if he does she will run away from home and never come back (dude, do not pass up this opportunity, you very rarely get this lucky in life!)"
ITA with all the side bar comments and loved the snark!
One thing I forgot to mention about last night's episode: Does anyone else think there is a secret safe or something behind that painting Elvira was moving around? I was waiting for her to find something she can blackmail her father with (to get back to her laziness) or something Mirna has hidden.
Some how I think that OJ's attraction to Maria will come into story and especially if Wendy is feeding him information about JA's fiance who is a beautiful, impoverished mariachita named Maria and he figures out she is the woman he met. He seems a really dangerous to me as well, since he just killed his cousin and friend in cold blood. Ruben is dangerous because he's obsessed, and Fabnot is dangerous because he is calculating and smart, and he's the only one of the three not attracted to poor Maria. Things don't look so good for her, either.
