PEAM # 168- 10/31/13- Luisita's Story
It was good that Rogelio finally came clean and confessed everything to Jesus, Alma and Paty. Looks like he is going to pay with more than his loss of freedom. I hope Paty moves in with Jesus, Alma and Sanson. All in all, not a bad episode.
Thanks so much for this truly inspired recap! Loved the bebe's point of view. Luisita is a great writer ; )
I too am very glad that Rog confessed all and asked for forgiveness. It shows he has finally grown, and it is time to pay the piper.
I really thought Killeronica would poison Suarez's coffee. That was close I must say. Now she has ruined Rog's life I wonder who is next. I have a feeling she isn't done with her "Wall of Doom" yet.
I don't like the previews of more picadillo. It was bad enough the first time.
I'm guessing Vero was too worn out from cleaning up the mess from her last murder to poison Suarez. I wonder what she did with Cynthia's car? Or did Cynthia arrive in a taxi?
Ury's picadillos are the one thing I FF. Basta!
Could have done without the detailed retelling to Alma of what she went thru, but we need some filler. It was just so aggravating having to not stare at Alma's awful hair color. That should be her first post-jail appointment.
As for Virus...skin crawls whenever she pops up. And if she pulls Val into danger again...this TN will never change will it????
This thing with the mask reminds me of the last time I saw that done. The hero was kidnapped and rendered unconscious while the mask was made and it was subsequently put on a dead man of comparable size to convince the protagonista that her prince was dead. He was kept prisoner for another two or three months during which he endured torture and humiliation at the hands of a female villain.
So now Rogelio pays the piper and Jesus gets it all... except safety from Veronica, which is still a dozen episodes away.
I don't mind Rogue going to prison (except for the sadness it causes Pati) because he deserves it. He is a criminal and he did put Jesus', Val's, and Alma's lives in danger.
Alma's house has suddenly become VERY full. And wasn't Ray supposed to go live with Chatita? Is she going to move in too?
The most touching part of this episode was Rogelio facing his past and accepting his responsibility. The tearful goodbye was well played. One of the best parts of Rogelio's showing his new self was his happiness at seeing Sanson & Jésus bonding and his willingness to give Sanson over to Jésus.
The prospect of Vero having anything to do with Val is what scares me about the previews. Rogelio being on the receiving end of Uri's ministrations is just more of him getting what he deserves before he finds a way through this mess. In fact, cooperating with the feds to get Uri & Nick for good may be his get out of jail card.
So I can start watching real time now. Alma’s out of jail. I have to say, a lot of the plot lines have finished up pretty quickly. Alma was only in jail for about a week or so of viewer time.
I really like the little Pato happy dance with Ferny when Rog told her Alma was getting out of jail ep before last. Everybody was celebrating and I was holding my breath. If I were them, I wouldn’t have celebrated until she was actually out of the building. Anything could have happened to mess it up.
Sorry about Cynthia. Also, sorry that Rog didn’t get a chance to turn himself in before Vero sent her audio to Delia. Glad he’s doing it now. Maybe, if he testifies against Uri, he’ll get reduced time.
Vale flubbed a line last night—or so it seemed to me.
Pato broke my heart.
Two more weeks.
OT: did I understand that ad for LT right? It’s already in ultimas capitulos?! I knew they were editing the crap out of it and it was going to end sooner rather than later, but ultimas capitulos?! There’s only been 68 eps or so. Will it end before PEAM? Two new ones coming about the same time. Which one to choose? The Angelique Boyer one has an interesting story, but I’d really like to see Jaime Camil in a TN since I missed PESE (though I am going to catch it when they re-air it).
They are editing the heck out of LT. Last night was a combo of 96 and 97 or 97 and 98 (going by the episode titles on Wiki). The recappers have been watching all the real episodes and giving us the scoop in the recaps. Otherwise, some of the events would make no sense. We'll have 2 more weeks of LT left at this rate, and La Que la Vida me Robo replaces it at 9pm starting the 12th, according to the ads.
What I haven't seen are ads for the replacement for PEAM yet. Anyone know what it will be?
"Robo" starts on the 18th of November not the 12th. We don't know for sure if LT ends on the 15th or the will show the finale on Sunday the 17th as they did in Mexico. We are still waiting to hear. They haven't announced what is replacing PEAM yet. We should see that soon.
Chuckled at Luisa's plans to ask Papi what a conjugal visit was...and very impressed that she used the word "nefarious". Quite a vocabulary for a bebé.
Another thing that cracked me up was all the "half-sister" and "half-brother" vocabulary. Yes, these telenovelas really stretch family relations to the breaking point, but no more than in real life these days. Can't tell who's who without a scorecard!
Thanks for keeping us up to date on PEAM, and so cleverly too. I am ready for this one to end, but evidently we'll have to go through one more Valentina In Peril before the requisite Happy Ending. Ack.
Funny, when Xochi was waiting for the delivery men, I wondered why she suddently went running to the door. They hadn't even rung the doorbell yet!
I also thought Vero would poison the detective's coffee. Did he actually drink any of it? Maybe it's a slow-acting poison!
Cynthia's car? I hadn't thought of that. Maybe Vero paid Jacinto to get rid of it. I do remember the other night when he went to Vero's house after she killed Cynthia, he said he didn't want to know what she'd been up to. So I guess he wasn't willing to dig the hole, but maybe he disposed of the car.
Nanette, I did enjoy PESE, but I'd recommend LFMB over PESE any day of the week for a Camil TN. What's more, there are TWO series of postings for LFMB on Caray: One for the original series, and another for the rerun. The one for the rerun is easier to follow because it includes links back to the original recaps, some of which were not written in order (long story).
If Robo is replacing LT, then maybe the Camil thing really is going to replace PEAM after all.
LT has a total of 121 epis. There will continue to be double epis until it ends. Last night they showed epis 96 and 97. It's a darn shame.
They do show older ones during the day on Unimas. They are only showing newer ones now in Primetime. The reason is that UNI is gaining viewers left and right, as gringos are discovering UNI and now that there are English captions they can enjoy them and understand what is going on. Also UNI is in a partnership with ABC. I have noticed the improvement in UNI since this partnership began. When they were in partnership with NBC it wasn't so great. UNI is now set up as a direct competition to the big four, CBS, NBC, ABC and FOX. If you look at ratings UNI beats NBC and FOX most nights. That's something isn't it?
Luisita got tired of just looking at everything from her pink blanket.
Julie- good point- where is Cynthia's car??
Vivi and Madelaine- I am sick over what is going on LT.
I hope the good folk all huddle together until the psychopath Vero is in a cage!
My internet reception continues to be waxing and waning here so I do appreciate the clever recaps by all and the enlightening discussions by viewerville.
I'm really not looking forward to Vale being put in danger and/or kidnapped. Hoping that doesn't happen, but not too confident.
