Corazon Indomable # 96, 09/24/13, The curse of love...
I was the one to recap Tav's first wedding, too, some 90 episodes ago. What an honor, really, may this new marriage be as happy as his last one. If he gets a number three, could I have that one, too? I'm getting good at this.
I was surprised that Simona politely introduced Mari around to the guests. Good for her. It made Mari look even more like a crazy beyotch dressed in white (even casino ladies know that's a no-no at a wedding) when she made a scene. Wish Simona had kept it together enough to brush the whole thing off and have a hot wedding night with Tav. But I guess they get busy eventually, since she'll be pregnant by tomorrow's episode! Mari won't like that at all.
JA's attitude and jealousy this episode proved Ester right. This is not a healthy "sibling" relationship that he has with Mari.
Gringo- I left a link for you in late comments on the last recap.
1. Felt sorry for Simona. How humiliating and sad.
2. JA taking out his bad mood on Esther was sickening and I so wish she would leave him.
3. Juanita should save herself and leave MA.
4. Cant believe Simon's is pregnant?! Probably bec I cant imagine how awkward the sex must have been...but is the show jumping like a month ahead already?
MC was just, sorry, a bitch. Shoot your husband in the leg and destroy some lives, fine. But wear white to a wedding? Unacceptable. Even if it was a pretty dress. I thought Simona was very gracious to her given the circumstances.
I really don't see how they could get married when there should be a funeral for Lucia. I was cara impactada when they just went ahead with it, I fully expected a convenient excuse to delay the boda.
Here is a chaste love scene resulting in pregnancy that I have always loved
This was my very first viewing of this show. You write a GREAT recap.
I love AnaBrenda, and she wss just beastly in today's show. I felt terribly sorry for the bride.
Thanks for doing such a great job for this show.
Wow, Ana Brenda, MC so consumed with her hatred and vengeance. She did it so well.
Guys, it did not happen the first night(wedding night) but the next night. And so a couple of months went by without the usual notation on the screen(maybe) need to watch tv tomorrow.
OOh, I can't stand that awwfelia. Here she is creating a new intrigue. Why is she so angry with MC. If I were MC, I would focus all my energy to Zap her out of this TN. Lowlife indeed!!! MC is a daughter of a rich person(Don Ale) and not like her, a lowlife. Didn't anybody inform her of MC's origin? That she is really above her social class?
Thanks so much for the recaps, everyone. It's been a real pleasure to follow the show while traveling. Plus all the great comments.
"If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love [charity], I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal...
Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things."
Obviously Mari-crazy is in no mood to hear such words. In fact, she throws back the padre's reference to God: "yes, where was God when all those horrible things that were done to me?" Channeling the Book of Job, clearly our heroine likes the Old Testament over the New: an eye for an eye kind of gal.
I really liked Maricruz's white dress and the fact that it matched Octavio's suit perfectly. It added a certain something to the wedding.
So interesting that Octavio and Simona are still calling Maricruz a "savage" and she is happily and consciously fulfilling their expectations of her.
Poor Octavio better watch out because Simona's eyesight is very good and no lipstick/makeup stain will pass unnoticed.
All in all a great episode as Maricruz goes hurtling out of control. Maybe there is "something" on that Narvaez Ranch that drives all the women who live there crazy.
1. Simona should stop the wedding. She knew that MC told the truth and she was with the Tav. Simona has no self-respect or what?
2. Padre should stop the wedding, because this marriage obviously is not about love and respect.
3. Padre shouldn't talk to her with that tone. MC is right, that no one was by her side, when that people ruined her life. And the main point of the padre was that she ruined the ceremony. Really? The ceremony of the marriage without love, respect and bla-bla-bla. He must talk to her as a padre, but he talk to her as a real Simona's father. Every one is now blaming MC for everything, but no one wants to support her. No matter good she or bad, she need that support. Even in Narvaez family everyone support each other no matter how evil they are. But no on now support poor MC. Even padre. It's sad/
4. thanks God, they didn't show, how S got pregnant.
Yikes..the ex attends the wedding in white.!!!!!... something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. hmm..let's see..Simona would be the old, nothing's new..just the same old , same old, I guess Oblivio is the borrowed because he is probably going to eventually be returned to Mari (I hope Simona kept the receipt), and everyone is blue..including the viewers..well, .most of the viewers.
Later, Gators...off to work.
....is only worse than the curse of watching this."
Ah Adriana, you're a good scout nevertheless and wrote another sparkling humorous recap.
I loved your aside concerning Octavio's fib about "working with the peones". "Yes, the type of peones that favor burgundy red on their lips."
Last night's episode was very painful. Although Maricruz is my heroine, I felt very sorry for Simona last night. Yes, she's rich and privileged, but she too has been scorned all her life, for being "fea". And her self-esteem is so low, she's willing to settle for a groom who was canoodling with another woman on the eve of their wedding. No wonder she spent the wedding night in tears.
So many ugly actions last night. Jose Antonio seemed to have a brief few days of treating Ester nicely and now he's an abusive husband again. Miguel is at his lowest, most self-centered, blame-shifting level. Hatred, contempt,narcissism and ugly behavior has a way of catching. This show is definitely continuing in a negative spiral. Hope the winds of change arrive soon!
You did an excellent job on a very disturbing episode, Adriana. Thanks.
Ester couldn't go to the wedding because she had nothing to wear? What happened to all of her clothes that she had at the ranch?
I doubt if Maricruz has ever read either the Old or New Testament. But she has a copy of Ayn Rand's ATLAS SHRUGGED by her bedside.
@Anonymous at 10:09 am - re: your comment "But she has a copy of Ayn Rand's ATLAS SHRUGGED by her bedside." How so? She's been spending boatloads of her money on charitable works since she returned to the ranch. Hardly sounds like an Ayn Rand devotee to me.
---Thanks for the link Vivi...case
closed. It made me crazy. No, the case isn't closed. When someone hurts you, your wife, a relative or a friend, that doesn't give you
the right to be judge, jury and excutioner. Civilized countries/societies have laws, judges and juries. It's called "The
Rule Of Law." If everyone took the law into their own hands [Miguel] you wouldn't have a civilized country/society for very long. Soon
there would be chaos and anarchy. What are they teaching in the schools down there in Texas? I am not soft on crime. If a survey were
taken, I have no doubt that I would score in the top 10% for tough on crime, laws and penalties.
I don't believe in---oh he's young,
or---He didn't mean it, or---give him a second chance. Yes, give him/her a second chance after they have paid for the crime. The bottom
line is Ewwsebio commited a/the crime and Miguel murdered him for it. That's why Miguel is a wanted man, that's why he is on the run.
Miguel took the law into his own hands and became a murderer in the process. He needs to stand trial for his actions and be judged by a jury. Although I admit, with no witnesses, he would probably get off. I add, A man with wealth and means would probably get off---a poor man, probably not. The system isn't perfect but it is what we have and it is what Mexico has. The law needs to be followed.
Rant is over, now on to the recap.
It is tiresome listening to the same wretched people call MC savage. However,I am more concerned about MC's well being. I understand her desire for revenge but its taking such a huge toll on her life.
JA continues to be the worst character in the TN for me. Why does anyone, especially the women put up with him?
or at least humor, snark all the way thru.
RIP---Rest In Purgetory
What, Tav explosive?
Back at $imona's ranch...ah, I mean the wedding chapel.
The death stare. Just to name a few
I was so disappointed. I thought that the priest pulled out of the wedding after Mari left and didn't marry them.
I say SHAME on the priest for conducting that marriage.
Critcism for Mari wearing a white dress---I LOVED IT. Good for Mari.
Rub their faces in the dirt, they
ALEGRIA 4:37---I agree with you 100
no, 1,000% No one wants to support
Mari. WELL I DO, with capital letters. Mari is not crazy just hurt and angry.
Vida2---Good post from yesterday.
LatinaMD---Thanks for the marriage
info from yesterday. It's confusing
Church and State, what a mess. One is official but not recognized and one is permitted but has no legal value. Oh my gosh!
Kelly---You wanted venganza and now you don't. What do you think venganza is?
Susanlynn---Tav will be returned. I
hope $imona kept the receipt. LOL
Octavio doesn't know how to think very well but he sure knows how to make babies.
Some have asked, how can $imona be pregnant already? It was said yesterday that they were already married [civil ceremony] and has been living with her for a while.
Alegria---One last thing. Yes, I am behind Mari. For all of the hurt the Narvaez have caused her, I hope that she stickes it to them
BIG TIME. legally of course. and Awful-felia too.
I know MC is all Vengeance is Mine...but dang, don't use your daughter!! Nothing I hate more than the use of a child as a pawn or to prove a point. Just wrong wrong wrong.
I see the writer from last week must have gone on vacation since we are back to the jerkwad JA. Is this guy bipolar?
So I'm getting the "let's set up Miguel" vibe. First off, non too bright to have come back in the first place. But looks like he's getting the bullseye painted on his back now. Poor little Miguel-lite. If only to save that poor thing losing both parents, hope Miguel survives and gets his act together to boot.
I saw on IMBD there are some new characters noted. No spoilery info here...no clue who they are and what they are showing up for. With so many episodes to go, I guess we were bound to get a few new folks. I saw Sergio Goyri and I remembered someone mentioned he would show up at some point-- I don't care if it's one episode, love how this man just chews up the scenery. But I do worry what the writers will give him to work with knowing their track record.
I really hope Mari and O make up, but I know from experience this does not happen in real life. One or the other will constantly bring up the past and they will be on-off, love-hate forever. I've been there, done that, and I didn't even have anything half as bad as the in-laws murdering my abuelo!
Also I hate Mari's rancho clothes! And hair! What happened to her great stylist on Isla Dorada? Even her makeup is getting too dark and thick. Agreed, nice jeans, boots, embroidered blouses, please!
The Narvaes have NEVER EVER been sorry for any of their actions. Not even Tav. Was there something in the water at the Narvaez rancho?
Their haughty attitude is amazing.
Mari and Karma will knock them down before this is over---It's already over for Lucifer.
And yet she continues on a quest against "the Narvaez"?
She is the evil one now. Her continued quest for vengance is unjustified, excessive, and no better than anyone other than the already dead and beyond the reach of vengance L and E.
It's time for her to call it good, get some therapy and start behaving like a grown up. The love-hate thing with Octavio made sense (sort of) given her immaturity and lack of life experience, but she's had time to mature. No more of this "I hate you and you can never see your daughter but she must come to your wedding because you're her daddy" stuff. Time to treat Lupita as a child rather than a pawn.
Besides, if she really wants to make them feel like crap, she'll build her village, win some urban planning awards, create a world-class ranch to go with all her casinos, and keep strutting around in her sexy ranchwear. And find herself a super sexy boyfriend who isn't already married. I have someone in mind but might be a spoiler to say.
Not that I don't appreciate your take on things. You're the devil's advocate (in a good way) to all the criticism and make the comments section more interesting! Ana Brenda looks a little teenager-ish when MC pouts and probably could have done have done a good job showing her inner conflict. I'm liking her acting better here than in LQNPA. Dang monkey writers.
I hope in all this offscreen time, Solita has enrolled in a school for the deaf and made some nice friends in the city, and she will refuse to be hauled back to the ranch.
Why do Octavio and the priest worry that Maricruz will run out of money? Do they not know that she owns many casinos, plus the ranch should start generating income now that they are picking the oranges? I don't think a little school and a church will bankrupt her. I just hope she has qualified builders in charge of the construction. None of JackAss's crappy firewood-tied-with-twigs attempts at vernacular architecture, please.
And I swear that her eyeliner gets thicker every time I see her. Is there a quota of eyeliner that has to be used up each week in this show? Is Simone now having to make up for all the eyeliner that Ester is not using? (Ester looks her best with that clean, fresh face, by the way.)
So I think now MC is a person who decide to do something good. And she is doing. For what are you blaming her now?
Don't like Mari either, though. Don't like anyone except, as someone else said, Solita and Tobias. Well, I also liked Teo when he wasn't being too creepy with Araceli.
Octavio is the most unromantic galan I have ever seen in any tn. He hasn't been shown being romantic with ANYBODY throughout the whole novela. There hasn't been a single candle or rose petal in this whole thing - for anybody!
Solita (rarely seen for months)
Tobias (rarely seen for months)
Don Ale (dead)--oh my god did Cesar Evora really play one of the most decent people on this show?
Araceli (may not appear again)--I don't think she was ever worse than annoying, was she?
India Maria (probably will not appear again)--see my comment on Araceli.
And I would put Teo on that list too, although he was a bit controlling with Araceli.
But they are all minor characters.
I'm not looking forward to doing tomorrow's recap.
I guess you're right about Eduardo, though. But wasn't he at some point encouraging Tav to forget about the fact that he had a daughter out there somewhere, probably being raised in poverty? (It's hard to remember because that was on even-numbered days, and on odd-numbered days he was probably urging Tav to go look for her.)
I thought about Teo, although I wasn't crazy about him getting Araceli fired from the casino. That was outright manipulation, going to the unacceptable extreme of controlling in my book.
The truth is MC is losing her mind; everybody called her loca one way or the other, even good characters like Juanita or the padre.
She's acting like an irational lunatic, if she weren't the protagonista I could totally see her going pshyco crazy on Simona and Tav, maybe even trying to kill them (it's not like the thought didn't cross her mind).
And what she's doing with Lupita is worse. We never see her actually take care of the baby, Juanita is the one changing the diapers, doing the feeding - MC only needs Lupita for one of her rants or when she needs to use her as a reminder that she and Tav slept together a couple of times once upon a time.
This is what turns me off the most about this "protagonista" - no matter the hurt and the pain, all vengeful heroines show unconditional love for their children, but I don't think this is the case with MC - after all Lupita, too, is a Narvaez.
