PEAM #122- 8/28/13: A Lot Happens at Avon, and Nothing To Do With Work! WooHoo!
Recap by Pablo
Thanks so very much for this most marvelous recap! So witty, lol.
Panfilo the traitor! Poor Chatita. No wonder she had her chamber pot out when Maricela told her about Panfilo and Susanna. I can't see it lasting though, Susanna is so not for Paniflo. I had to laugh at Mari's comments.
Patymelt is gonna get in trouble if she keeps up the stealing. She needs to find something she really loves to do, besides the stealing and get busy so she stops. That kiss was something else with Elias and Patymelt.
Best part of the epi was Jessie and Cardy's reconciliation and another marriage proprosal. But I noticed after they kissed his lip wasn't swollen anymore. Hmmmm......
Glad that Valentina disrupted Moronica and Royer, but I didn't like the sleeping arrangements either. Didn't like Royer's nightmare this time either, with a poor roasted Sanson. I think Royer's subconscience is trying to tell him something, like dump the b*tch already!
Moronica is getting worse and worse. I couldn't stand what she said to Elias about him not being able to have children. I can't wait for that DNA test to take place and both Papa's to sue her for custody. I hope she loses!
So Chucho is going to help Marta. I'd have been leery to help her, especially after all she has already done. I hope it doesn't come back to bite him in the butt.
I am sure Marta can get the same attention being in jail. There's nothing wrong with jail, specially after doing what she has done. We all need a 2nd chance, but not necessarily at our own risk.
There's 60 more episodes to fill and this is a great stuffer, because I am sure this was a BAD, VERY BAD IDEA-- LOL!
Best part for me last night was Paty working as the coat check girl. What a perfect job for her! She managed to acquire a few new things for her klepto stash.
Worst part was Jesus feeling dizzy. I bet we'll have a couple of hospital episodes coming soon. I HATE hospital episodes. I don't even watch Marta in the hospital. To tell the truth this whole thing has become so grotesque lately I have been just listening more than watching.
On we go!
I had a problem with Val sleeping next to Rogue, que the heck!
Moronica really doesn't think.
Your comments about Marta, yellowing so true.
60 more episodes, ahhhh!!! What else can happen? Hmmmm!
I continue to be entertained by Val's little war with Rogue. In the real world, those sleeping arrangements would have been a major red flag, but in the PEAM universe it was funny seeing Rogue being annoyed by these little kiddies hands slapping him in the face as he tried to sleep. And the nightmare was hilarious. No sleep and no nookie for Rogue these days. He's miserable, and that's great. Now, let's see what Val comes up with for the super glue.
I'm very worried about the DNA test. Moronica's lawyer told her some epis ago that they could really put it to Jesús but that it was dangerous. I expect a switch which will prove that Vale is NOT Jesús' daughter. I t will be untrue, of course, but it will throw a BIG monkey wench into everything. And it will really send Jesús over the edge -- which he is so-o-o close to right now.
That was some dream that Rogue had. Yikes! His subconscious is really trying to tell him something.
Did Patymelt just walk off the job? Won't they be suspicious when the employee is missing along with so many personal items?
I think we got a short preview of what Val did with the superglue. Rogue's going to have a very bad morning after his sleepless night.
"Penguin with hemorrhoids" is a perfectly fair nickname for Chatita because she really has no aptitude for affectionate nicknames. If she doesn't like you, she has no problem coming up with something; but if she likes you, you're just Chato. Lame! (I notice that she called herself "Luisa" last night, though, so she must have been very frustrated with herself.)
I finally got a good look at Alma's dress last night. It's fine until you get to the bizarre hem. That was just... I don't get it.
I guess we got our follow-up on Paty's kleptomania. Will she feel badly afterwards? I think there is a good chance she could get caught this time, unless this restaurant is a very bizarre employer who doesn't ask new employees to provide identification that shows name, address, etc. And Monterrey being such a "small" town with only one of everything, there's also a good chance that one of the restaurant patrons will see her someplace and recognize her.
I too was quite horrified when Valentina climbed into bed with Rogue, but hey, it absolutely ruined their night and wasn't technically a prank and she didn't even have to break out the Krazy Glue yet, so bonus points to her for that. But Rogue's dream about roasted Sanson was very upsetting. I still have nightmares from a similar scene in a Vincent Price movie when I was a kid.
Sylvia, did you see something about the glue? I missed it. I hope she put it in Rogue's toothpaste or his Brylcream.
"Maybe one day she'll come back to kill us..." LOL!! I'm not loving or wrapping me head around why we have to have this character back into the mish-mash. I'm sure she will serve some purpose, and I'm sure it will have something to do with Vero finding out Superman is helping the woman who tried to kidnap and kill their daughter. Dare I say, the nutjob might actually have a point about the other nutjob?
Thank goodness for Paticakes...the one character we can count on to actually remind us this is supposed to be a comedy.
Now, I will say that I love the interaction between Rog and Val on most scenes. Those two play off each other very well ( the guys in this TN are so good acting with the kids!!) but I was screaming at my TV when Vero was perfectly fine with having the little one jump in bed, in the MIDDLE of the bed, with them. I half expected the writers to show Rog and Val all cuddly in the middle of the night for the creepiness of that whole scenario. Is this supposed to show us how clueless Vero really is on how to raise her daughter? There's Eli and Chucho's cause for taking the girl back right there!! Ok, rant over on that point.
Rog seems to be one step away from kicking Vero to the curb anyway. His subconscious is working over time trying to him.
So any bets when Chucho fully collapses? What chaos will ensue since no one can seem to function without him?
This TN needs a good(operative good) wedding--let's get Jess and Cardy down the aisle for some fun.
It looked like Rogue was stuck to his toothbrush or something. It was a pretty quick flash but I'm sure we'll find out the details tonight.
Alma's "dress" looked like it was missing a nice, slim pair of slacks to go with.
I think you're right about the dress. It looked more like a tunic that was meant to be worn with some type of legwear!
Julie: superb recap. It was a slow ep, but I’m enjoying this TN, even when it slows down.
My first thought when Jesus walked into Chatita’s place and everyone came out to greet him, was that he had a nice little family there (Vivi, we think alike): Vale (hija), Alma (novia), Chatita (mama), Elias (hermano), even little Rai (“adopted” hija). By-the-way, loved how Jesus called Chatita “mama” on the phone when she was telling him she was being evicted a few eps back. He automatically segued into calling her that when she called him “hijo” and was clearly in distress.
I loved the scenes in the laundry room/pantry(?) with Pato/Elias and then Chatita. Loved how P can laugh at herself. Loved that she egged Chatita on to hit Elias with the chamber pot and then showed her the pic. She really is a likeable character (even those times when she does/did unlikeable things.
Like how Jesus had to turn his face away to laugh when hearing about the frog adventure.
Judyb: You are so right re: Elias laughing a lot when he’s with Pato. I’m hoping Pato can overcome her issues, because I’m really liking this pairing (uh! oh!--last night's ep showed she has a long way to go).
Julia: Care Bear Stare?! Classic ☺
Snaps to Jessica, even if she was a little premature, for giving up Cardenas. That was quite unselfish of her and showed she truly loves him (but also glad she got together with him last night).
So glad Cynthia told Vero that she would go to jail if she didn’t let Elias see Vale. Hopefully, this will be the beginning of her not getting her way all the time.
Now onto last night’s ep:
Thanks Pablo for the recap.
Jesus is not going to be happy with Julio.
Loved the scene with Vale getting into bed with Vero and Rog (though agree she should not have been put in the middle). I agree that Val’s being put in bed between Rog and Vero was so they could play up the comedy of Vale hitting Rog with her arms while she slept. Also love the way she had Rog’s number. That little actor is amazing. Also, Rog thinking of Pato is not a good sign for Vero.
Poor Pato!! She really needs psych help. And speaking of psych help. Is Marta sincere or is she playing Jesus?
So Panfilo picked Sue. I think he kind of got blind-sided on that one. However, he does like both women and Chatita did “give him away”. It’s time for Seb to come back.
Guera: let’s hope they don’t go there re: the DNA results switch. Such an American soap thing to do--which they do to death.
I really like Alma’s dress. Inappropriate for work, but very pretty and looks good on her. Sylvia: Now that you mention it, I agree. It would look better with a pair of tight fitting pants and flats. Then it would be appropriate for the office. Take the pants off, throw on some stilettos and she’s ready for happy hour.
Wonder how Elias will react when he finds out Pato is a klepto--and I'm sure he will.
Panfilo was definitely blindsided by Susana, which got me wondering is he her rebound novio? They just don't click for me. I know Susana was friendly to Panfilo when Seb was still around, but...
For me, Pánfilo is not worth his weight. It could mean more trouble than Susana already has. I sincerely don't believe that either Susana, Luisa or Pánfilo are truly in love.
The only ''love'' I see is the one between Jesús and Alma. The rest are just bumping around like chickens withour a head. All crazy!
I liked Chatita with Saturn the bank guy (though I'm not sure he'd survive the ordeal). She is too sassy for Panfilo.
I don't know who I would fix up with Panfilo. I don't think he's worthless, but he needs a more calm and serene type of woman. Maybe Cardenas's mom?
So disappointed in Pato. She has to know how stupid that was...surely the restaurant got her information when they hired her, and even in a telenovela they should be able to connect the dots between all the missing stuff and the new coatcheck lady who walked off the job midshift. And why would she want anyone's makeup anyway? Gross! But also, what kind of idiot leaves valuables in the pockets at the coat check?
If Paticakes wants to earn some quick cash, she can sell me her silver coat. I want it.
I love all Val's smug smirking and taunting around Rogue. I also liked when she asked him what "whatever" means (she pronounced it better than he does).
Jesus is an idiot not to have Marta in some guarded secure place. She could snap at any moment and just walk out of that hospital and wreak more havoc.
I hope we get a wedding with a lot of great music and dancing to liven things up.
Julie - I thought that Susan WAS finally over her hangups about her and Seb's socioeconomic status. I seem to remember that what made her dump him was his knowing and lying about Rogelio's affair with Pati and still making Alma marry Rog for his (Sebastian's) own selfish reasons. I may be wrong.
I thought Sebastian's defense (for lying) was that he didn't want Alma to end up with "that secretario" and made some other disparaging remarks about common employees, at which point Susana jumped all over him for being a snob because she's a common employee too.
Now, I don't completely disagree with her, but I also felt that she had just been waiting for him to make a comment like that so that she could accuse HIM of being the classist - even though he had never made such a remark before, and she was always the one to be so concerned about mixing with someone of a different class and even seemed to prefer Panfilo because of it.
But, maybe you're right and I have the timing out of order. Maybe they patched things up after that fight, just before they broke up for real. Their "relationship" went by so fast, I hardly even felt a breeze!
Chose to miss most of this but did see the inappropriate,but funny, scene of Valentina sandwiched between Rogelio and Veronica. And also her scene with him in the Dysfunctional Family Room. I agree with the other commenters in that she handles her scenes extremely well.
And absolute HATE that somehow Melquiades is going to screw up that DNA test. I truly loathe that scenario and I've seen it too many times (perhaps I should be studying my Teach Yourself Spanish books instead of watching all these telenovelas!)
Hey, first college football team tonight. Don't really care about S.C. and N.C. but am I ready for Fall Football...........yesssssss.
OT: When is QBA ending and what TN is replacing it?
But a double-switcheroo... that would be PRICELESS.
However, it would also be priceless to see the look on Virus's face if the test says Chucho is NOT the dad. She's never denied it before, so people would want explanations...
