PEAM #138- 9/19/13- The Secret is FInally Revealed
Wonderful, marvelous recap! That proposal was awfully long, but so much fun. Everyone looked like they were having a great time. I really liked Chucho's Princely outfit, sigh!
I am glad the killing Alma part was just a thought bubble inside Moronica's head, but still! I can't stand her. And now she wants a bigger house?? Que, que What??? Rogersss house is enough to fit twenty people. She just wants something huge and ostentatious.
About Discua, she was checking her bank balance and there was way more money than should have been there, and I think she was about to contact the bank, when Delia came with the arrest warrant. I bet this is Royer and Cantu's plan to get rid of her. I hope they trace that money back to Royer, he has gotten away with way too much.
I'm curious what Augusta thinks of Chucho getting married, cause she has the hots for him. I'm surprised they didn't show her tonight.
I feel bad for Xochi, but she did give Ferny the space he needed to straighten out what he feels in his heart. I hope they resolve this situation soon.
I am liking that Alma is preggers, but I hope it doesn't turn out to be complicated and another dragging hospital plot!
Cardenas' mother is very sweet.
Augusta is going to have a hissy fit.
As everyone has noted the proposal game went on rather long but it was so much fun that I really enjoyed it. It didn't leave much room in the episode for other story lines. But as some have noted Augusta's reaction should have been included -- especially since they jumped forward three weeks.
I agree with everyone that Cardenas' mom is sweet. And I am glad that the secret turned out to be just an ugly tattoo and not what Ricardo (and some of us) had feared.
Bummed about the previews indicating a problem pregnancy. That could derail the wedding.
I'm curious about what's gone on with the Xochi/Fern situation during these supposed three weeks -- and what Fern will do now when Discua is arrested.
Chatita not knowing which Jesus she was talking to was funny.
So, it is Alma who is going to have the first unexpected pregnancy.
I agree with everyone that Cardenas's mom is sweet; Jessica will luck out in the mother in law dept.
All in all, a fun episode.
The proposal was long, but very original and fun. Much more than we had expected from Jesus. We thought it would be boring candles and roses, but he really put a lot of originality into it. Even better that he involved all the people he and Alma love.
I noticed two things: 1) How natural that crown looked on Blanca/Alma's head. It must be in her beauty queen genes; and 2) How natural FC/Jesus looked in that period costume. Very dashing, and so much better than that dorky sweater draped over his shoulders.
Loved the kisses Pati and Elias shared on the Love Course.
Did anyone see the unedited Televisa version of the episode? Did they actually show Jess's tattoo? Why did Uni edit it?
When she told Jesus that she wanted to get married ASAP, I suspected she already thought she was pregnant.
This marvelous recap is TJ's not mine : )
You are so right about Alma. Remember in the beginning of this TN, Alma and Rouge used to make "appointments" to have sex? Too funny.
I got a kick out of the reactions of Moroninca and Roggeerrr when they found out that Alma and Chucho were getting married. I'm surprised that Roggeerrr wasn't screaming, "that secretario" ! again!
Oh, and has anyone noticed that Moronica and Roggeerr like using the word naca and naco? I don't think I've heard that since UFCS. I'm staring to like Pato's "casual" it so fits her personality.
Glad so many enjoyed the proposal sequence. I wanted to go eat a cold can of spinach to cut the saccharin. Almost as if it had been scripted by three or four fifteen year old girls imagining The.Most.Romantic.Proposal.Evah.From.Mister.Right.OMG!OMG!
Gah. As bad as the episode where Alma and Jesus had close ups of each saying words like "Loyalty" and "Love." Say, maybe THAT is Steve Miller's Pompitus of Love.
Didn't Alma comment a couple of weeks ago, "I feel 'distinto'?" And I think she had a momentary faint last week, too. Hey, who needs to wee-wee on a test stick?
Add me to the "proposal went on a little too long" table at the patio. It was exactly what I expected. (The person who owns the party planner store with balloons, paper, paste and goodies must be in heaven every time these people walk in the door). All the other major events have been suited to fit with this on-going child's fairy tale level. Val was adorable and poor Pati had to work her butt off during this whole thing. Did love her and Eli's little meet and greet and Val's "cough-cough" to get their attention. Too cute.
Jess and Cardy are resolved, so dear lord, let's do the same with Xochi and Ferny. And yes, the time jumps don't answer what the heck has happened to them all this time. Stupid monkeys.
Vero is already planning vengeance, WTH when she finds out Alma is preggers. Perish the plot to follow.
And apparently Rogue wants his cake and eat it too...upset about Alma, freaked out over Pati and buying a new house with Virus. Gees!
Alma hasn't fainted (yet), but she did get weepy and emotional watching movies in bed with Jesus.
I think my favorite tn proposal is the simplest one I've seen. Amor Bravio, Dan proposing to Camila while they were in their jammies, getting ready for bed. No flowers or candles. Spur of the moment. No ring, but a special necklace. No sappy words, but lots of love, humor, and happiness. It really doesn't have to be so complicated.
But I still give Jesus (and the writers) props for originality.
Anyway, the Telenovela family way signs are all present.
I haven't been watching this TN for very long, about a 2 months I think, but I really enjoy it. Yes it is stupid and overly sentimental but it is a nice counterpoint to Corazon Indomable which has absolutely no comedic or sentimental scenes and is very repetitive.
I agree the proposal went on FOREVER. I liked how it ended. He should have just done that. However, I did like how much Alma was enjoying it all. I liked how Jesus was dressed but didn’t like that he got to be dressed to the nines while she was in “grubby” clothes. Reminded me of that Remington Steele episode that caused me to drop the show.
"Like" seems to be my word for the day.
OT: getting to start Silk from the beginning as one of my numerous PBS stations is repeating it again.
Madelaine- don't forget that naca/naco was used in PESE by dear Rebeca.
Mike and Vivi- the proposal was original, I agree but it was a little long winded.
Vivi- ITA with the Amor Bravio proposal.dev
OT (again): I'm getting a free preview of some Spanish stations and recorded a Siliva Navarro movie. I just scanned it because I don't get the English captions on my TV. Laz/Hipp (CME/AB) was in it, too. He plays a D-bag. He and SN had an interesting scene. I will never be able to look at them the same in any TN they do together.
Thanks I had forgotten about Rebe using naco/naca in PESE. I think the reason I forgot is cause she is a real bada** in La Tempestad and I'm sure she will be using it there too ; )
Mike, I think you're right; this was written by young teens. Also, is it just me, or was it a little narcissistic? I think Chucho just wanted an excuse to get a life-size cardboard cutout of himself and dress up as a fairy tale prince! And apparently we're back to a very ordinary, though dazzling, diamond ring. A turquoise heart was perfect for Alma before, but that's enough out-of-the-box thinking.
I saw that creepy gingerbread man advert, too. No idea what it was advertising!
I also saw the movie you’re speaking about with SN and LG. It’s called Contracorriente (or Mujer Alabastrina). I watched it when we were watching AB, and yeah, it was a bit hard to see them together, and remember them in CME, without thinking of that scene in the car I know you’re referencing. I gained even more respect for them as actors.
Maybe. Maybe not. I love her as a heroine.
So maybe I'll never get to see that infamous tattoo, but something tells me I'll have many more opportunities to see the gingerbread man commercial. Like I'm not already stressed out enough about the regular days, I don't even want to think about the holidays yet. Maybe I'll be ready in February.
Oh, hey, Emilia and I just went to see Eugenio Derbez's "No se Aceptan Devoluciones / Instructions Not Included" - very worthwhile, funny and sad, but a fine story.
Y, y, y, y,... There's a movie called "Pulling Strings" starring Jaime Camil that opens in a couple of weeks. We want to see that, too.
So we skipped ahead three weeks? Ah, how time does fly.
I'm floored that she is blackmailing Rogue into a "relationship" and a new mansion. Yikes. How fulfilling. Although I agree with her that Rogue's place is kind of ugly. Those colored stones are odd, and the whole place could use some redecoration. I feel like Rogue should have read some fable, or was it from the Bible, about tents and camel noses.
