Mi Corazon Es Tuyo #52, Tues 09/30/2014 Finally Bruno and Manuela hook up, Jen leaves Nico breathless... Isa wins one battle, or does she?...


Johny hugs the bald guy

Leon meets Reeky… Reeky notices that Leon is not quite just history for Fanny.

Nando and Ximena, his blindly kissing her nose… she keeps on smiling…

Jenn and Nico… Ay my Sciatica!!! / no worries, I will go make you a home remedy in a jiffy!

Isa spills the coffee on Ana intentionally…

I: sorry, I am so clumsy… (Ana growls) … you owed me. Know? It was an accident, I am so distracted…

A: You think you ruined my night?... I can change clothes in 2 minutes, but you can’t change your bitterness…

Lo Nuevo:

Jen is delighted with how ‘lively’ (vivaz) Nico turned out to be…

Ximena and Nando… he makes some comment of going 300K km per second… she says ‘don’t feel bad… these things happen. … it was great.’ ‘you are such a bad liar… but I love you so much…’ ‘ Nando, you are my love… my love.’

Nico throws the towel on Jenn (he has her lip kiss prints all over his face’… she will bring him some cake she has around. (he comments ‘this woman is a beast’ and she replies she heard him LOL!)

Isa goes to fetch Fernando at library… She reminds Fernando Ana must be having a great time with his brother… they make a great couple, don’t you think? They are both liberal, extroverted… i can imagine them backpacking semi-nude in the middle of the jungle… ‘ She suggests they go to bedroom… sorry Isa, even if you try to massage and give him a preview, he is just not that into you… he comes up with the excuse that his son Sebas is out on the street. Isa asks Fer if it is time to take the painting of him and Fanny off the wall. He just replies ‘No.’ (take that, bruja!!)

The guy who Leon got off Fanny when they met is the DJ at some club. There is Sebas in the middle of teenage girls who are clearly older than him. Poor guy is about to be stepped on… but he is real happy to be there.

Erasmo the driver calls Fernando’s cell. Fernando is very impactado to hear his son escaped.

At scalpore, Bruno keeps admiring Manuela’s cleavage. She pulls his chin up so his eyes look at her face… LOL! He mentions the devil arriving and then blows on her chest… she asks him how long has she been running after his jacket tails… he doesn’t know. She says she is tired. He begs her not to go. ‘Today you will understand one of my mysteries’.

Hasta El Fin Del Mundo #31 9/29/14 Go to Jail. Go Directly to Jail. Do Not Pass Go or Collect $200.

Hola, Everyone! There was great discussion over the weekend about why Sofia (Beautiful) would be attracted to Chava (Beast). So I did a little digging and I found this article that gives several reasons why Visually Opposites attract:
Whatever the reasons, Uggo and Hottie couplings like Chava and Sofia happen all the time in real life. Cases in point:
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony
Pauline Porizkova and Rick Ocasek
Rod Stewart and Rachel Hunter

On to the recap!
In her hotel room in Brasil, Sofia considers calling Chava but decides against it.
Dani calls to talk to Sofia.
Pato and Silvana get busy in bed.
Chava and Sofia think about each other through the magical windows of their minds.

La Gata #21- Mon 9/29 - La Hija

Before Fernando can launch into his sales pitch, Jarocha tells him Gata's in desperate need of his help.  Gata apologizes for having caused a scene, but Fernando thinks she needs understanding and affection.  Jarocha decides to leave them alone.

Garabato hits on some other girl and gets caught by Ines.  She, of course, takes it out on the other girl.

Fernando sees Gata's inner light…she gives his life meaning.  He tells her about the pain in his life since he lost his wife and daughter.  He figures guys are always into her for sexual reasons (he doesn't say it like that, though) but he's interested in being her daddy, minus the sugar.  He wants to give her and the kids everything they need, so she can show Pablo that she doesn't need him.  He wants to humiliate the Negretes and raise Esme up like a queen.  She keeps resisting.  Fernando tells her that Agustin took everything from him and his revenge will be her revenge.

Mi Corazón es Tuyo Lunes 9/29/14 #51

Capitulo 51: Three Coins In the Fountain

Lascuráin Mansion: Isabitch went on the offensive by being offensive to Ana, demanding that she stay away from Fernando.
Ana took it quite calmly, telling her – with something of a smirk – that the kiss in the hall was an accident. Isabitch ordered her to shut up and said she would like to arrange an accident that would get her out of the way. She ordered her out of her room and growled in the wake of Ana's departure.

Bela Gets The Blues (As Her Due)

Let us JIP (J=join in progress) as Don Nicolas’s bride to be, La Jennifer, makes a “naughty night” date with Nic.  (E.D. PSA alert!)  Nerdando  comes downstairs with a smile the size of the DF anticipating his own naughty night date with Ximena.  The two end up comparing their respective upcoming night of nookie and Nerdando admits he’s still a virgin.  Don Nico says that at his age with a woman like Jennifer he might as well still be a virgin himself.  (Sorry, but  a  serious young man discussing losing his virginity with his parental units or even his grand parental units is more than I can stomach.  –N-n-nb-b-t-t-t-t!!!  Oh well, the whole storyline here is more than I can stomach.  And my beanie is out for repairs.  Let’s continue…..) 

Even weirder discussion ensues as Nico tells his 17 year old grandson that he’s got an appointment that morning to see about adopting a baby for Jens.  (Guess the old guy’s so rich he figures he can buy his way through anything.  Anyway, what is some 70- something old fart doing bringing a baby home like a kitten or puppy from the county pound??  He’d probably be pushing up daisies and Mexican heather long before the kid gets out of junior high, even.  Why does he think that should be fair for a child??  Crap!  Why doesn’t the old toe-sucker get his rocks off once in a while with his trophy wife, courtesy of the little blue pill, and count his blessings such as they are?)

Weekend Discussion: The Galans of Opera

I'm always comparing telenovelas and opera and they have more in common every day.  And there are tons of great videos online to prove it.

It is no longer necessary just to be able to sing well; opera stars are now expected to be good actors and also to be hot.   Today I will present a line-up of tenors.  If there is adequate response, I'll do a sequel featuring baritones and basses.

Hasta El Fin Del Mundo #29: 9/25/14: He's Nakkid and Sofie Sees!

Hola Amiguis. This recap is entirely from memory. Here is the earworm.The Streak

Shall we begin.

Sofia tells Chava he can take a shower to clean off. So he goes to do that. Sofia is leaving for Brasil shortly, I wonder if Pato is going with her. Crap! Sofia goes down to check on Chava, he is buck nakkid and covers his head with the towel, too funny. Sofia is embarrased and he finally realizes she can see everything. He covers himself but drops the towel. She squees and he apologizes to her. The only women folk that have seen him nakkid is his Mama and Marisol when he was younger that is. Sofia goes and runs to the study and tells Fausto what she has seen. He laughs and also says oh the gods on Mt Olympus. Too funny. I guess she has never seen a nakkid guy before. Hmmmm......

Marisol and Lupe are making amends over a cup of delecious hot chocolate. How sweet. Lupe assures Marisol she is not reuniting with the infeliz, Marisol is juat happy that her Mom forgave her for all the bad things she said to her.

Greta and Dani are also making amends. Dani apologizes to Greta and Greta also apoligizes th Dani. They love each other muchly. Greta finally allows Dani to have her computer and cell phone back. I think Dani will now toe the line.

Armie and Alexa and Little Lord Fauntleroy are about to leave, when Armie gets a phone call from Nando's school. He's sick and needs to be picked up.

Renzi and Irma are talking, although he is flirting with her. Renzi is checking out her boobage and she remind him she is a mother and she has a guy. Her phone goes off snd she doesn't answer. That call is

La Malquerida #24: What is Lost Becomes Found And The Accidental Kiss

Hola Amiguis! This recap is mainly from memory, I didn't take any notes, so if I miss anything let me know. Here's the earworm.Bury My Lovely

Shall we begin.

Este and Acacia are off to Cuidad Real to take care of bidnez with that Pieralta guy. When they meet with him he immediately goes off on Acacia, what a jerk, calling her inexperienced and how could Este leave this child in charge of so important a bidnez deal. Este has gives it back to this guy , he tells this Peirata guy that he is talking to the daughter of the duena of the Hacienda and not just a nobody. Acacia wants to go, but Este has her stay. This Peiralta guy is a true putz. His cell phone keeps going off, and he is constantly walking out of this meeting to take the calls. We just know who keeps burning up his phone, it's Norbie of course. Well, Norbie too is unable to fulfill this order, cause he doesn't have that amount of cotton, nor is he able to get it yet. Peiralta is giving Este grief that this cotton is destined for The United States and they are holding his feet to the fire, and he'll have to pay a huge fine. Which will get passed on to Este of course. Este will do what he can.

                                          Stop the hugging of Este, you are driving him mad!

Mi corazon es tuyo, #49 - Thursday, 09/25/2014 Never let a fool kiss you, or a kiss fool you

(Joey Adams, American comedian)

I’m back home this week for my brother’s wedding, so this recap has been written in bits and pieces whenever I had the chance to run away from my noisy (although lovable) family. I hope I didn’t forget any important details. If I have, please add whatever you think is significant in the comments.

Off we go...

Do you still have to write thank you cards for the wedding presents if you get a divorce three days after the wedding? Do you even have the time to do that?
Fernando is telling Bruno that he is still in love with Ana, but it’s not like he’s harboring any type of hope of a future reunion. He is married and she is involved with Diego, who is his brother AND is truly in love with her. She is unlike any other women that Diego has ever been with, so Fer truly believes that this time his feelings are for real - so he can’t get in the middle of that and hurt his brother. Besides, Diego is handsome and a good guy, he is the best candidate to win Ana’s heart.
Bruno doesn’t believe that all hope is lost. With all due respect, he doesn’t understand why Fer had to marry Isabella; he could have taken care of the child without making her his wife. (Viewerville is applauding Bruno for calling it as it is, even if he is trying to be very tactful about it).
Yes, but Fer wants his new baby to feel like it’s part of a real family.
OK, then, Bruno insists, but there is always divorce… There are plenty of kids out there with divorced parents that are OK. Because as far as he’s concerned, this marriage was un grave error. (Viewerville cheers, Bruno might be getting a honorary member card). Fernando goes hmmm… Could he have a light bulb moment?
After they finish their chat about Ana, Fer invites his only friend, el majordomo, to join him to watch Johnny's stand-up. Isa is not home yet, so... boys night out?
But Isabella IS at home and she hears the first part of their conversation and runs to her mother’s bedroom, kicking and screaming after. She knocks on the door and is very loud, Diego sees her but doesn’t stick around to figure out what happened. He goes downstairs where Ana is waiting for him so they can go to the bar to watch Johnny's show. Their banter downstairs about taking the moto is really cute, Ana is at least warming up to him.
Upstairs Isabella is still crying like a little child over the fact that Fernando doesn’t love her because he still loves Ana. Yola doesn’t want to comfort her daughter, she just points out the fact that having all these loving, human feelings are only getting in the way. Their purpose was the Lascurain fortune, which they now have, so Isa needs to stop crying, because that won’t solve anything.

La Gata #19- Thu 9/25 - La Llegada

Gata gets right to the point--she needs money for the kids.  Don Italiano was hoping they could take things slow.  That's ok, though, he can live without romance as long as she agrees to be a decent wife to him…and maybe give him a little love.  They're not off to a good start when Gata turns her face instead of kissing him.  Damian shows up before Meatball gets too violent…but it looks like Damian might be bringing the violence.

Rita and Jarocha argue because Rita's an evil old hag.  A selfish, evil old hag.  A selfish, evil old hag who uses people.

Gata gets yelled at by both guys.  Both guys yell at each other.  Damian headbutts Meatball.  I guess he's a meat patty now.  Damnit, Damian, you've already got a record for assault!  Gata keeps pleading with Damian that she needs the money for the kids, but instead of just telling her that he's going to give her money, he keeps telling her not to make a deal with Meatball.  Meatball says this is a "now or never" offer.  This is a lot of arguing back and forth that's going nowhere.  Damian finally hauls Gata out of the pizzeria while Meatball yells at her that she's stupid.

Hasta El Fin Del Mundo #28: 9/24/14: Everyone is Slumming

Hola Amiguis: I don't know if Corazon is putting up a  recap today so I will put up some bullet points and if he posts one, I will remove mine. 

Shall we begin?

Chava is on the hunt for Lucas. He goes to his house and asks him why he didn't go to work? Well his girlfriend is having some family problems and would Chava want to meet her? Dani hides out and Chava says no. You need to get back to work, after what Ms Sofie did for you! So Lucas goes. As soon as both Chava and Lucas goes, Dani hi tails it home.

La Malquerida #23: 9/24/14: Who is Chantajeing Who?

Hola Amiguis! This is another short and sweet recap. I think I got everything. Here is the earworm. Dirty Laundry

Shall we begin?

Este is being pissy and wants to leave. Cris convinces him to stay, it's the last day of their honeymoon. Este was thinking of taking a private plane. So the upshot is that Este is staying, there's a good boy, and they kiss.

Oh, look Norbie is hitting the bottle, I wonder why. A little riddled with guilt are we? German comes in, wondering where he's been. Norbie tries to say that Manuel's injuries are due to Uli. Yeah, blame the other guy! Now Norbie is thinking this will work to Manuel's advantage. I love German, Mr. Big Sexy! He tells his deluded Papa never happen.

                                                                                      Such a small man. I can't wait till they catch your butt.

Mi corazon es tuyo #48... FINALLY Nico and Jen get engaged!!... and some more 'near miss' scenes of Ana and Fer... Fernando as the tooth fairy... and Diego moves into Reeky's building


Isa arrives home, tells YoMama went to OBGYN alone. There is something you don’t know. / what did you do?

Reeky and Fanny at lunch… he digs into her phone calls and what happened with Leon and Fernando, never seen my dad that angry.

Isa tells YoMama the worst news she could hear… ‘I don’t know who’s my baby daddy’ / ‘NO!! … NO!!’

Lo Nuevo:

Reeky surprised Leon was just a messenger… no wonder your dad was angry… / it was not about that. It turned out Leon was married and has a child…

Said Leon is getting the ashes of his ex… he is still upset… he is signing up for a payment plan to pay for her cremation… (the loan term is for six months, a very short time for someone currently unemployed)

Fanny says really what makes me upset is to think of Mau, Leon’s son. I know what it feels like to lose your mother. Saw the painting at my house? My mom was a beautiful person inside and out. Reeky (I am sure it is a lie) says his mom died too, and his dad is ill, had an embolism (embolia). He was my partner, my friend, my hero… and now he can’t even talk… (wow, good acting from this jerk)

Yomama calls Isa a cynic… Isa brushes it off to YoMama as ‘'asi es la vida' (that's life). YoMama asks ‘then why did you split your legs (aflojaste) for him??' Isa replies it was a few days before and a few days after the weekend at Malinalco with Fernando. YoMama is more and more upset the more she hears. ‘I feel like a piano just fell over me.. No! .. No!’ She wants a triple Margarita from the waiter. YoMama gets even more scared when she learns Reeky knows about Isa's pregnancy. 'Then why did you recommend him to Fernando as your replacement'  'What do you mean why?? Because Reeky knows about our plan!!' … 'No, no.. no manches (don’t tell me).'  'What plan?? (as in DUH!) The plan to strip Fernando dry of his money! (to sum the rest up, YoMama ends up pulling on Isa’s ear… 'Reeky could be our demise… if Fer finds out, we won’t end on the street, we will end up… and I will lose this great(tan rica) bed!.. Waiter!!'.

The twins and Luz are helping Ana finish the dress… the twins say it still does not look like a princess. Ana asks then what do we do? Luz suggests a crown/tiara… they all jump for joy at the idea.

Ana goes to talk to Fanny… how is your heart? Fanny says she feels she will never be able to put the pieces back together. Ana gives her some encouragement… she has a very good glue (gives her a big hug)… pega cachitos del Corazon (a glue specifically to put a heart back together)… muy apachurrante (very squeezy) (Ana gives Fanny a very nice strong hug of support and then whispers in her ear… ' Time always heals… when you feel sad and sensible, you have your BFF-Nana… or the Nana-BFF… a confident who will be with you always.. love ya'   (AWWWWW... she has nothing to envy of any real mom there... Ana, don't change anything when you become her real 'new mom' as Luz said)

Quiero Amarte Week 1 Discussion Space Sept. 22-26, 2014

For those who catch this show and would like to discuss amongst Caray, Caray,  here you go!


Mi Corazon es Tuyo #47 Tues 23 Sep 2014... Ana and Fer in another 'almost kiss' scene, this time with a witness... Betty gets a big letdown courtesy of Ricky... Isa gotta know who is her baby daddy, Isa and Fer play truth or dare

sorry this is late, was sick all day yesterday...


YoMama and Fer make amends

Diego, Ana, Nando and Ximena at club and out on the sidewalk… ‘tacos de lengua’ with Xime very excited that Nando defended her…

Nico, Jen… I love you… I know.

Lo Nuevo:

Bruno flattered that Manuela was mad at YoMama for what she made him do and Manuela ready to beat up YoMama… YoMama caught the last of this and threatens Manuela ‘you don’t know who you are messing with’… Manuela answers in kind.

Ximena invites herself for sleepover in Fanny’s room, Fanny tells her she can forgive Leon but can’t go back with him. Fer comes in to check on Fanny and repeats to her that he loves her.

Betty visits Ricky, they get into chaka chaka… FF>>

Fer knocks on Ana’s room but she does not answer the door in time.

Isa finds the twins in her bed… runs to get Fernando and fakes being delighted about it …

Ana goes to kitchen for a tea. Fernando finds her there, he is in his pj’s. She ALMOST tells him the details about the bad guys at the club, but stops herself. Then she tells him about Tamara’s accident with the kid and that Fanny was there to support Leon. Fernando is sad to hear what happened.

Isa in bed mistakes one of the twins with Fer. She gets sick about it and gets up to go find Fernando. She peeks through some square hole from hallway to kitchen… watches as Fer and Ana have the same conversation of usual ‘you do so much for the kids… you love them… don’t know what we would do without you’. / ‘don’t know what I would do without you all’. He holds her hand and they are AGAIN about to kiss…. Isa has witnessed all this through the square window… Ana notices there is ‘someone in the window’. Fer goes out to look, Isa runs and hides… He doesn’t find anyone… Ana cuts their midnite meeting short… when she walks out, she can smell Isa’s perfume. (que asco! … yuck!)

Isa watches Fer still in kitchen deep in thought… she probably wishes he could think those thoughts about her.

Hasta el Fin Del Mundo #27 20140923 Lucas Bueller's* Day Off

Ripoll: Chava runs around the car, but Sophia has already opened the passenger door.  As she steps out, she drops her brief case and some papers on the cobblestone.  Their eyes meet as both bend down to retrieve them.  While they struggle to resist feasting upon the lips of the other, I struggle to find somethinganything…attractive about Chava.  Maybe squinting and ingesting several shots of tequila will work.  Naw!

In the conference room, later on that morning, Chava and Sophia get an unexpected visit from the fuzz.  The commander has come to freak Sophia out by telling her that they have identified two of the kidnappers.  The master mind is still at large and they believe that he or she remains in town.  The vehicles were stolen by the perps the night before; however, they abandoned the vehicles and left no prints.  He wants Chava to view some security footage about the men who may have jacked up his race car.  Chava reviews the videos with the fuzz, but the perps don’t show their faces.  Something about one of them looks familiar to Chava, but he can’t put his finger on it.  Chava is surprised that the men are wearing uniforms and were able to easily enter the garage.  The fuzz says they are pros.

La Gata #17 Tuesday 9/23/14 La Lentitud

Watching this episode felt like a ride with a teenager who hasn't mastered the use of the accelerator: inconsistent pacing. Hubs is chomping at the bits to watch some TV, so this is going to be short, maybe not so sweet and scattered. Please fill in as needed.

La Pulmonía
After Pablo's day out without his coat, he's contracted pneumonia. He's put in the hospital. Lorenza is called. She rushes to his side. He mumbles incoherently about Esmeralda. Lorenza gnashes her teeth.

La Revelación
Rita tells La Gata about her mom and gives her the letters her father wrote. In them he professes his love and begs Blanca (was that her name?) not to visit him. Although knowing that his wife and child are alive gives him hope, he doesn't want his child to know where he is. When Gata asks Rita about this, Rita tells her that her mom made her swear on her deathbed to never tell her. (Yikes, what an awkward bit of writing on my part.)

La Malquerida, capitulo 21. 09/22/14.

I apologize for not having done a recap last night.  I had a bad migraine .  If anyone wants to summarize I can post it.  Otherwise, please discuss.  Thanks.


Hasta El Fin Del Mundo #26 9/22/14 There's Something about Chava...

Yikes! It's officially Autumn! The captions on this episode were lagging behind so I'm not sure of some of the dialogue, especially the dinner scene. If I made any mistakes please feel free to fill in or correct in the comments. On to the recap!
From Friday:
Marisol and Lucas meet in the break room.
Chava and Sofia arrive at the racetrack.
Chava tells Sofia how much he loves the passion, speed, and adrenaline rush of the racetrack. She loves it too! He introduces her to his friend Tato. Tato jokes that he thought Chava forgot about his racing buddies at the track and, looking at Sofia, he can see why. Chava corrects him, Sofia is his boss.

La Gata #16- Mon 9/22 - La Generosidad

Today's episode starts with a flustered Lorenza remembering the smack heard 'round Viewerville.  I ignore her ranting while I smile at how satisfying that was.

Mercedes chews out Jarocha for following Damian's violent example and says they're only hurting Esmeralda.  Mercedes is worried about what's going to happen to Esme now and Jarocha says she'll have to go back to begging so she can feed the kids.

Right now, though, she's still in the hospital, hanging out with her chamacos (kids) and the only two galanes on this show--Damian and Carlos.  Carlos and Esme are both similarly reluctant to ever love again.  Carlos is nervous about carrying the babies, but he, like Damian is determined to help her with the kids.

TELEMUNDO Y MÁS: Reina de Corazones -- PAGE ONE week of September 22, 2014

Reinamaniacs are still in shock.  No one was expecting The Rocky Horror Suture Show.  The Dragon lost his good friend and mentor; and we, the Crockpot Theorists™ were sent back to the kitchen, desolate, never to know what was behind that poker face.  Danger is everywhere.  No one is to be trusted.

Victor de Rosas has told us many times: La traición se paga con sangre.

Javier de Rosas has told us:  La traición se paga con lágrimas.

What will happen tonight?

Mi Corazon Es Tuyo # 45, Luz to the Rescue

We start where we left off, Tamara slaps Fanny for having a relationship with Leon. Who slaps a person like that? Does she think she’s on Jerry Springer? But out of no where Ximena comes to the rescue and pulls her off. Why is Ximena at the corporate campus?

Luz shows Ana a loose tooth and Lichis is thinking about her guateque (new word for me; party). Ana says that she needs to dance a vals (waltz) with her father and then Ana remembers her dance with him and gets all emotional.

Fanny is in a meeting with Fer, Isa and Enrique to discuss being his assistant.  She’s not keen on the idea and acts like a spoiled daughter of the president. She left the university because she didn’t want to go into business administration. Then explain to us why you took a job working in business administration? Enrique suggests meeting in his office to figure out what she would like to do.

Skipping the old.....

Acacia is telling the grandparents about managing the hacienda while Cris and Esteban are on their honeymoon. Norberto eavesdrops on the conversation. He finally walks in looking for a watch he left at the wedding. Acacia leaves to ask Rosa about it and Norberto takes the opportunity to tell the grandparents that if Acacia needs any help managing the hacienda, to contact him. Luisa comes in with the watch and Norberto leaves.

Norberto is eavesdropping on the conversation that Acacia is having with the grandparents when Ale strolls on up. Norberto explains he came looking for his watch that he left at the wedding. They talk about someone needing to make blankets or whatever. Anyway, Norberto reiterates that if Acacia needs any help managing the hacienda to contact him.

Juan Carlos advises Acacia to keep quiet about the going on's at the hacienda. He doesn't want anyone all up in their business. Acacia leaves to get lunch and Elena asks Juan Carlos why he said that. He knows Norberto is trying to take advantage since he tried before with Cris when Alonso died.

Juliana visits an exclusive hair salon. She wants a new look now that her life will be changing forever. I wonder if they can remove the permanent pissy face that she always wears.

La Gata #15- Fri 9/19 - La Liberación

Here it is folks! Recap is below the page break. I had trouble deciding on a title (La Caída? La Operación? La Pelea?) I even thought about using the title La Frustración to reflect my feelings tonight. I like those crazy kids Pablo Pan and Esmeralda so much and dagnabit they can't seem to get it together! Why is Pablo talking to Monica like he's in a position to start another relationship? You're married!!! Why are the writers forgetting that it's 2014? Surely there are ELECTRONIC copies of marriage certificates? Who cares if Mariano has a paper copy?

Ultimately, I decided on the event that made me really happy. El Silencioso is free and ready to exact some revenge. Hurry up, Fernando "El Silencioso" de la Cruz. Your family needs you! Gringo, David and I are smelting ores and making anvils. We will give them to you for FREE. Just drop them on Rita, Ugh-ie (can't remember who started this one, but kudos) and Lorenza.

TELEMUNDO Y MÁS — Reina de Corazones: week of September 15, 2014 PAGE TWO

With all that has been going on in Reinaland, I think we are going to need it.
I am going to post Mauricio's terrific recap here (with the break) so we don't lose track of it. 

Jueves Part 1

Party Crashers

Navier crashes what was already a doomed to be miserable birthday bash. He has brought Reina a gift - not sure what it was exactly but looked to me like it was an expensive bracelet. Reina thanks him for the gift and puts it down.

"Darling look who it is" she tells Victor. She refers to Navier as cuñado [brother in law] and sarcastically thanks him for coming. "You'll have to tell me all about your European vacation" she tells him sarcastically. Sure thing! Why the three of them [Reina, Victor, & Navier] can have dinner together and he can tell them all about his vacation. Reina sarcastically says "that would be wonderful" and she excuses herself to go and greet the other guests. Victor sarcastically welcomes back his little bro.

JJ has crashed the birthday bash as well. JJ and Susana spot each other.

Mi Corazón Es Tuyo #44/45???

Thanks to Julia for taking over alternate Wednesdays!

My apologies, gang, but night before last the hubster went into emergency surgery. So I'm still playing catch up after being awake a full 24 hrs and having to racing off to work despite the family situation--and yes, some employers these days are mass-governed by computerized machinery programs that don't account for the human element At. All!!  So, in order to keep one's employment you show up or you are shown the door.....  Thus, a bullet pointer of the show will be posted, but later than any of us would have liked.  --ed.

La Gata #14- Thu 9/18 - La Mentira

Lorenza doesn't believe that Gata and Pablo got married.  She tears up the marriage certificate and says she doesn't believe a word.  Her precious son would never stoop so low, and no way is she having his baby.  She tells Gata to forget about Pablo, because he's going to marry Monica.  After more griping she dismisses Gata and storms back inside to scream at the nosy maid to never open the door to Gata ever again.  She wants her out of their lives…"Fueraaaaaaaaaa!" (out!).

Jarocha finds Gata on a hill of trash.  Gata tells her it's over, but at least she has her baby.  Fela joins them as Gata's saying she won't leave her baby with someone like Rita.  Gata tells Fela she'll probably go crazy like her soon.  Won't that be fun.  Fela thinks their two babies will be like siblings.  Jarocha drags Gata off, telling her to chill.

Gata cries in Jarocha's shack about how badly they treated her and how she'll never forgive them.  She says the baby is her only joy, a baby that's entirely hers, and someone who will call her "mom" and always be with her.  It's all she'll ever had in her life and no one will be able to take this baby away from her.  Um…talk to Fela about that sometime.

La Malquerida #18: 9/17/14: The Vows Were Paused, Were They Restarted? Enquiring Minds Want to Know!

Hola Amiguis! I was laying on my chaise, taking notes and got to the part where the wedding photos are being taken, and the shame of it is I fell asleep. I am so sorry amiguis! If one of Y'all would fill in what I missed I will add it to the recap. Lo siento, and I will make sure to stay awake for tonight's episode. Here is an earworm.I've Got My Mind Set On You

Shall we begin?

Everyone is gathered at the Church. Cris arrives on the arm of Juan Carlos. Este isn't there yet.

German and Ale arrive and German introduces her to the priest, as his novia, and oh, noes, this is the same priest she asked for Santuary, and both are quite surprised. He won't say anything.

Perls and Swine, and unfortunately Swine is now awake. Perls tells him to close his eyes and when he looks he has a cow. Perls is in a red dress with fake Perls and she looks way tacky. Oh, the horror. Perls thought she looked fab and now she is a bit peeved. Swine makes her look in the mirror to get a look at herself and she cries and goes.

Cris is very worried about Este not being there, because he could have had an accident on the way to the wedding. Este finally comes and they smile at each other.

Juan Carlos walks Cris up the aisle. Carmen and Andres have also arrived and gone into the Church. The ceremony begins , the priest starts the vows and Este is staring at Acacia. When the priest asks Este does he take this woman to be his wife, not. a. word! The priest has to repeat himself and Cris tries to get his attention. Everyone just stares at him and he finally comes to himself and he acceptos! Wew, for a moment there it was getting mighty tense. They are pronounced man and wife, besos and go out of the Church. They are gentley pelted with flower petals and everyone calls for besos. Acacia has one strange look on her face.

Now it's time for photos and that's all I saw. 

Here is the rest of the recap, provided by our Vivi:

La Gata #13 - Wed 9/17 - La Novia

Of course, Augie doesn't believe for a second that his fine, upstanding son knocked up that piece of gutter trash.  Clearly, all the riff-raff have conspired against him!  Damian beats the snot out of Augie for daring to suggest that Esmeralda has been anything but a victim in this.  No, seriously, Damian's fists made violent contact with Augie's face and other parts.  Repeatedly.  I feel conflicted, 'cause Augie is evil, but he's still an older dude.  And also, Damian was going for a law degree, so he can probably kiss that goodbye.

Lorenza is sending Virginia to Italy with "Tia" Eugenia (Monica's mom).

Centavito tells Esme (who's holding Principe!  Drink!) that he heard from Virginia that Pablo's missing her something awful.  Centavito says Pablo's parents have been trying to keep them apart.  As he asks about her illness, Mariano arrives.

Suddenly, Augie has guards…and they come in and hold Damian while Augie punches him and then points a gun at him.  Damian calls his bluff and tells him to go ahead, call the cops, 'cause he's got plenty to say.  Augie threatens to have him thrown in prison and calls the cops to tell them to send someone over.  Damnit.  There goes his law degree.

Mi Corazón es Tuyo #43, Wednesday September 17, The Hit Parade.

I guess there are two helpings of recap tonight...and you didn't even have to bellow for the mesero to bring them!

Picking up where we left off ish, Diego of course forgives Ana for yelling at him. He understands why she doesn’t want him meddling. Huggy hugs. Strangly hugs.

Meanwhile, over at the garage, Jennys is familiarizing herself with the workings of a car whilst Johnny is familiarizing his hormones with Jen’s face. She cottons just in time to spare herself any familiarity with his saliva. QTH?! They are just friends! But she said he should find another chava, he says. She meant someone ELSE!

Mi corazon es tuyo #43... the slap heard 'round the world... and Leon finally 'suelta la sopa' to Fanny... and we get the typical reaction from Fanny and her rigid dad... (act before thinking)

I am not sure if Julia will do a recap. if she does i can erase this one...

Fernando with the 5 younger kids… group hug…

Lo Nuevo: Ana apologizing to Diego, with excuse she is a ‘poquis’ (tiny bit) stressed with the debt… he admits there are things he should not intervene on… will do (not). Diego takes a bit payback in the end of the scene by hugging her … HARD.

At mechanic shop, Johnny and Jenn are in a car, he gets a bit eye-googly at her, even calls her a ‘taco’. He tells her it was not until now he sees her as a woman. She is like ‘my space… your space’. He claims she was the one that told him to look at other women. She says ‘but I did not mean ME!!’

At mansion, Ana and Luz choose a picture (can Ana make a dress by just looking at a picture? That is usually a skill only expert seamstresses can have) and begin working on the dress for Alicia.

Leon calls Fanny, she hesitates a lot but in the end agrees to see him somewhere not at his house. It is really important. He is really pensive, probably anticipating the break-up.

At club, Johnny again leans on Jen, she repeats she did not mean herself when she asked him to look at others… then Dana comes by and Jenn says ‘just look around you’. He turns around and Dana is right beside him.

Manuela confesses to Bruno that she followed him, he is very entertained by her saying the guy he was with looked like a thug. She admits she worries about him… again he is very happy/entertained by all of it. Manuela says Ana told her that Bruno might have to pay someone… Bruno says ‘curiosity killed the cat. Would you believe that I, Bruno, would do something fishy? Don’t you trust me?’

At her bedroom, Isa is running out of patience. YoMama, the voice of her reason this time, says you better get a fuse longer than 3 days…

Fernando still helping Sebas and talks to him about Pi being a decimal that never ends… as infinite as the love I feel for you. (Ana has heard this and is very happy to see them so good together). Fernando goes on to explain decimals to Sebas. Sebas seems to be very grateful and loving as well.

Isa runs into Ana in hallway and provokes her saying she is an incompetent ‘na-ka’… don’t understand why he keeps you … ‘I wonder why’ replies Ana… Isa insists demanding Ana to look up to her. When Ana tries to walk away Isa grabs her arm hard and keeps on provoking Ana until Ana swings a ‘tronada’ slap on Isa’s cheek. Isa freezes, so does Ana.

Ana tries to apologize, isa just tells her ‘you just committed the worst mistake of your life’. After Isa leaves, Fanny comes over to a very anxious Ana who thinks now she will be fired for sure. Fanny agrees with her that slapping Isa went over the line. Ana gets Fanny to swing her arms with ‘cancel! Cancel! Cancel!’ and praying for her sake. Ana tells Fanny Fernando is helping Sebas with homework. Fanny happy her dad is fulfilling his promises he made to her. Fanny wants to talk to her dad about Leon. Ana wants to know what Fanny knows. Fanny is afraid what Leon has to tell her is really bad. Otherwise, why the secrecy?

Hasta el Fin del Mundo Recap #23

Greta is on the phone with Dani's principal and is wigging out as usual. Fausto comes in and consoles her as she laments about Patricio and her current woes.

Sofia asks why Chava hasn't gotten married and he says something but is interrupted by Pato who is now on the phone with Sofia and he appears to be genuinely considerate until Sofia mentions Chava is with her and the harp that was his heart is ripped at the strings. (It's funny that Chava is in the background cleaning while she is talking.)

Pato is being an ass and Silvie tells him to cool his jets; she thought was better than this.

Chava has set up the fireplace and he says he thinks it's weird seeing Sofia in the kitchen cleaning and not in the Ripollery giving orders. Sofia says she knows more than giving orders they bond some more. He thinks he is distracting her but he isn't; she sits him down and they drink a te de francia.

Silvie notes Greta is a woman who knows what she's doing; Paot better watch out. He admits Silvie is right and he must be pro-active. Silvie says it's good he hasn't lost Sofia. Pato and her plot some more when he says he is ready to fake it up and win Greta the bad ol' way.

Chava says Sofia would be a good racecar driver and some talk leads to Chava suggesting that she learns to drive. She doesn't see it but he says life is like driving a car and if she learns to do so, she will have a better hold on her life. She agrees and they bond over driving real soon; she is nervous about being in the driver's seat but Chava reassures her she will be fine and instructs her hands-on how to move the stick. They're driving!

Paco gets off the bus and starts bitches about Irma having left the shoppe closedand here comes Lupe in an interesting printed dress to talk to Paco; she has come for cookies that Marisol loves but Irma put the locks on wrong! They work together and open the store. Lupe is about to leave but Paco opens his heart, closes the shoppe again and invites her to his house to chat over coffee.

Sofia is having a blast driving!

Irma and Alexa haunt and roam along the TV screen and Armie's mind while Alexa (clad in Alfred Htichcock-esque Birds ensemble) herself is lamenting to Fausto about Arm. He as usual is the voice of reason and says Armie is just doing his job. Fausto hears a ringing of the doorbell and it's none other than the one and only Alan Duncan! He is very hasty in speech and Fausto side-comments about him (I don't blame him.)

Armie is doing a silly dance which reminds me of a chicken when Fausto comes in and asks him what he is doing; Armie says his situation is Alexa because she will ask for something and he will respond to her. but it will never be the right way. Armie is about to quit when Fausto tells him not to since he is needed there.

Paco and Lupe talk at home as do Fausto and Greta (he interrupts her art'n'music'n'scrapbook time but has hesitations at first) in similar formats. (There is mentioning of Paco's daughter who is a lawyer BTW and we see Paco getting passionate about who deserves Lupe and who doesn't. Also Greta has a flashback about having a sad.)

Alan wastes no time in giving ViewerVille a reason to hate him as he flamboyantly yanks and screeches in and on Alexa's hair/ear due to financial BS when Armie comes in and gives him a good punching. Alexa spits out that Alan is her BF and Armie looks devastated.

Paot has a bad-ass moment with shades like Magnum PI and logically-present background music while Chava and Sofia bond automovilistically. She loves driving now! Pato sees Sofi's car and cusses out Chava. Sweet Chofia Jubilee when Pato's car thrusts almost into their car and he comes out to scold the Chofia we know and love. Just pure confrontation. BTW the car is stuck in the mud.

More Lupe/Paco sweetening which I have come to love (he actually says good things about her unlike nasty things he says in general :)  Just as she is leaving he suggests for her to try and talk with Marisol since he knows what it's like to lose something precious.

Fausto lets Greta know about Alan being over.

Lupe is going know and the 2 thank each other but Paco remains crying.

Alexa asks what gives Armie the right to punch guests of the house? (Well he was hurting you Lexi.) Armie and Alan fend off their insults.

Chava and Pato (well just Pato) humorously attempt to get the car out of the mud and it results in Pato covered in well you know.

Avances from Mexico- Armie is about to call it quits when Alexa tells him to stay.
Cuco and Chava talk about him returning to racing and Sofia.
SHIRTLESS PATO makes out with Sofia (Squeals)


La Malquerida #17: 9/16/14: Going To The Chapel, and They're Gonna Get Married

Hola Amiguis. This recap will be short and sweet. Not a lot of convos but lots of getting ready for the wedding and lots of staring, by you know who! Here is an earworm.Going To The Chapel Of Love

Shall we begin?

Ale and German go to the restaurant where his paintings are displayed. Acacia and Ulises join them. Acacia says when they go back for Ale to talk to her Mom Cris, she promises Cris will help her. Ale isn't so sure.

Ale, Cris and Acacia are back at the hacienda. Ale says German is such a great guy. Now Cris wants to know about Ale's life. At first Ale is very hesitant, but Cris is quick and smart and says this guy raped you didn't he? Cris wants her to go the police and report him, but Ale is too afraid still. Cris also suggests that Ale go into therapy, but Ale says the only therapy she needs is German, poor girl!

                                           Ale just go for the Therapy, You really need it to stop being afraid.

Cris and Esteban kiss and Acacia has to look away.

Luisa is doing better at school and seems she's made some friends.

Hasta el Fin del Mundo #22 20140916 The Pretty People Plot and The Dumb People Take a Vacation


Alexa helps to defile the impeccable reputation her family by striking suggestive poses on every surface of the chocolate factory. 

Sophia is sobbing in her office and asks Chava to take her far away from there.  He offers to take her to the end of the world.  Well, she doesn’t want to go that far away.  She simply wants to go to her family’s country house on the outskirts of town.    Sophia sends Chava for the car and his apron.  He stops at the door to watch her cry.  Her engagement ring sparkles in the office lights.  I hate her

In another part of the building, the soft-porn duo (Patrick and Silvanna) are busy plotting the demise of the chocolate empire.  Silvanna pops a tudie and leaves because Patrick won’t share his evil plans with her.  Once he’s alone, Patrick reads the results of the DNA test.  Coria was not related to Sofia.

La Gata # 12 – Tue. 9-16-14 – Augie and Rita: a Partnership Specializing in Making Bad Situations Worse

[ed note: tonight's recap comes to us courtesy of La Paloma!]

Next Time, Try Hiring Professionals

The paid thugs break into Rita’s shack and wrestle La Gata, bragging “We’re getting paid a lot!” She begs to know who sent them and continues fighting.  A quick flash of Augustin shows him smugly claiming no sacrifice is too great for your child.  The kidnappers push the Gata blanket-burrito into their car, but find Damian standing in their way.

As the getaway cars weaves through the dump, Damian whistles for his buddies. They jump into the cart and cut the car off at the pass.  The camera cuts away again, this time picturing our pure Pablo strolling the campus, talking to buddy Henry and two attractive co-eds.  They think it’s time for a little fun.  Back at the dump, the trash warriors take a stand in front of the car. They open the trunk, lifting out Esme, removing her gag, and telling her to calm down while the thugs escape.

Augustin reams out his hirelings for their failure.  Lorenza overhears and asks Augustin what he ordered? Better for it to stay unknown, he replies.  Damian, Carlos, and the gang share their pride in being a family and protecting one another.

Jenn and Johnny, she suggests he finally get over Ana (she is now seized by Don Fernando’s brother, and he is good eye candy, besides very nice and polite to her) and find a gal who will make him happy.

At club:

Diego goes to the Chicago and asks Ino-Doro how much Ana owes him. Ino-Doro learns Diego is Fernando’s brother. Ino-Doro says Ana is my golden egg hen, when she dances the Chicago gets packed full, and I ain’t letting her go. Diego realizes and tells Ino-Doro in his face that he is exploiting Ana. Ino-Doro just calls on his guys to get a bit closer into Diego’s space. Diego says better call them off me… Ino-Doro warns Diego to behave … for Ana’s sake. (ouch!)

Jenn tells Johnny he is not ugly (Feo)… he is just … different. Jenny jokes to Johnny about seemingly having issues with Ana having told him he can stay there. Jen says she will interview for a job at a car shop later, a guy friend of Nico’s. Johnny says no way. Jen says thanks to all you taught me. Maybe he can hire you too. Jen would convince Nico to put in a good word for him…. Paid with kisses, of course.

And we finally get Enrique Basurto on screen. He calls Fanny ‘little girl’. She is a bit abnoxious to him, to tell you the truth. Turns out Enrique and Betty know each other and she seems to have a crush on him. He is also glad to see her again. Fanny tells Fernando on phone that EB is there, she tells EB Fer is ready for him. EB walks in. Fanny tells Betty EB is ‘super –what comes after W… meaning X’.

At the mansion, Ana receives a very nice arrangement of roses (orange, fuscia and pink, with small lilies). Of course they are from Diego. The delivery guy tries to make a pass at Ana and she basically shuts the door on his rear end.

‘I could say you are the most beautiful woman… but I would have to skip over all the rest of your qualities… great personality, generosity, patience and smarts… so many virtues would not fit in this card. All my love, Diego.’

She smiles staring at them once she puts them on top of the piano.

At Costena offices, Fernando (btw, he is the President) is yelling at someone doing a report for him. He has to apologize to EB as EB walked in. Fer says Isa was working at the VP role and she recommended him. His resume is excellent and fits the needs of this business. Fer says he demands commitment to the job. EB makes the mistake to say the receptionist, Fanny, is not really efficient. EB says the girl is also a bit inexperienced and insolent/petulant. Fer laughs it off and then says ‘she is my daughter!’ we hear EB grumble to himself ‘swallow me, ground’ (tragame tierra is a very common phrase in Spanish to mean they would like to be transported anywhere BUT there… sort of the ‘wanna get away?’ slang). Betty tells Fanny she does not want Fernando to know she knows EB, so she sends Fanny with the coffees.

At Leon’s apt, Tamara finds a copy of their marriage certificate. She asks herself ‘what face will Fanny put when she sees our marriage certificate?’

La Gata #11 - Mon 9/15 - La Correspondencia

Please don't go, Pablo!  Well, he's going, and he intends to send Gata money and have her join him in New York.  No worries--his dad will help.  Gata suggests, since there are so many more jobs there, she can just go with him now and start working.  But nooooooo, Pablo and his misguided pride need to do it on his own.  What about staying and letting Gata provide for him?  Pablo and his misguided pride need to do it on his own.

Carrrrlos comes looking for Virginia and thankfully, when she pulls up in front of the house, she's alone!

Gata cries in Fela's lap about Pablo leaving.  Fela is sure he's never coming back, 'cause that's what dudes do.  They say they'll come back, but they just leave you lonely and it drives you crazy.  She flashes back to sitting with Silencioso, sans beard, in the living room of Casa Negrete, which was far less decorated than it is now, with the baby, and having Silencioso dragged out.  Fela thinks it's better to be crazy and take her baby doll out for a walk.  Well, sure, when reality sucks this bad…screw it!

The chauffeur is a little worried about leaving Virginia alone with Carrrrrlos, but he has more loyalty to her and Pablo than he does to Lorenza, so he has no problem leaving her for five minutes while he drives the car around the block.  Carrrrrrrlos couldn't wait to see her again--harpy of a mother be damned!  Virginia just beams.

Capitulo 41: Who Let the Dogs In?

Lascuráin Mansion: Fernando decided to lay down the law to Sebastián, grabbing his arm as he told him they were going to talk in the library. Neither he nor Sebastián nor Alicia noticed this, but Hissabela was gloating the whole time when Fernando played through the second act of “Wait 'till Your Father Gets Home.” The boy was clearly intimidated and Alicia watched in near disbelief. Hissabela finally distracted the girl by suggesting they go upstairs to try on the dress for her quinceñera.

The She-dog Shows Her Fangs

Cap 40

After overhearing Ana’s admission to Fanny that she is attracted to him, Diego sneaks off all smiles, giving himself a mental(?) high-five.  Ana senses that somebody’s overheard her and Fanny’s girly chatter but is too late to catch the culprit.  More slumber party activity ensues.  

The next morning at breakfast, Jennifer tells Dana she’s got to get another job to help pay back the money Ana borrowed from Don Doroteo to pay for her cancer operation and therapy.  She refuses to ask Don Nicolas for the cash, but accepts Dana’s suggestion to at least ask him to help her find a job.  And, of course, Don Nico comes through for her.  He’s got a buddy/client? that’s got a shop fixing luxury cars.  He’ll get the guy to give her a job—as a mechanic????  (More likely as a receptionist, but either way, unless it’s high class hooking, dealing drugs or winning the Irish Sweepstakes, there’s no way in Hell Jens is ever gonna to pay off that kind of loan in this life or the next!)

Hasta El Fin Del Mundo #20: 9/12/14: Dinners At the Ripoll House Never Go Well. Greta Tells Sofia What To Do, Or Else, Missy

Hola Amiguis! My computer has a virus, so I had to get a loaner from a friend. Here is an earworm. The Worst That Can Happen Shall we begin?

Our very wonderful Matthias is making the chocolates. He is mixing and stirring and working his tail off and the end relsult? Perfection! The poor guy is so tired he takes a seat and goes to sleep. He has a dream about winning Maestro for best chocoltier in the world. The guard comes and wakes him up and accuses him of being drunk. Matthias says shut your mouth, well, not that, but the alcohol he smells went into that wonderful chocolate bon bons he just made. He goes.

                                                        Isn't he just too lovable?

Sofia and Pato are together and she smoochies him. They are looking at those pics of Alexa. She ends up liking them and now it's on to dinner. Sofia does bring up the fact it's time to find a new Maestro. She hits on the idea that Matthias would be perfect because after all he was the Maestro's disciple. Pato isnt' so sure, and we know why dont' we? No Maestro and Ripoll goes down the tubes. He doesn't want to think about all this right now.

Weekend Discussion: Taboos

Telenovelas have been breaking a few taboos in recent times and the comments in this blog indicate that people's buttons are being pushed by some of these.  What does it for you?  What would you rather see?

Labels: ,

La Malquerida, capitulo 15. 09/12/14. Love and sexy time are in the air.

We start off with Cris and Esteban declaring their love for each other as they start the dance of love.

German gets onto Manuel for pushing Alejandra into the pond and to leave. German and Ulises go off for towels. Acacia understands that Ale doesn't want to show her scar but she is among friends.

Cris walks out of the bathroom happy as can be. Esteban follows. Cris is happy that their passion for each other is the same as the very first day. He tells her how much he loves to touch her and smell her perfume. He says he loves her more everyday and they start round two.

German and Ale talk about the incident. He calls his brother and idiot again. She doesn't want him to fight with Manuel over what happened. He leans in for a kiss but doesn't get to far as she pulls away. He knows she just wants to be friends but he fell in love with her.

Acacia and Ulises are cuddling in the pond. She tells him that Ale is very private and doesn't like to talk about herself. He says she's not only the best girl but also a good friend. They start smooching. She pulls away and he admits he wants to make love to her.

La Gata #10 9/12/14 La Separación

I'm going to have to make this short and sweet. My laptop was acting up earlier this week, so I pulled out my old one and now that one is acting up. I just want to get this up and hope the laptop doesn't explode while I'm at it.  I'm really sorry about all the issues I seem to have.
  • Not-so-Ernesto (thanks, Susanlynn!) threatens Albecinia (or whatever her name is.) If she keeps advising Esme on how to avoid his pervy attentions, he's going to send her to the archives. He thinks she's jealous of the young hotties.  
  • Pablo is cute, but dumb. He actually has the nerve to ask Monica to help him convince his parents to let him be with Emse. Bless his heart. Monica refuses.
  • Lorenza continues to try to impose her will on Pablo and calls him a mal hijo. She tells him again it's family or Esme.
  • Esme does indeed get fired after the jealous wife catches not-so-Ernesto making the moves on our feline heroine. Poor thing! She was completely innocent!
  • Pablo and Virginia talk about Esme and Carlos. How did these two end up so nice???
  • Emeralda wants Damian's help in registering for school.

Hasta El Fin del Mundo #19: 9/11/14: Pato's Mis Planes Continue and Lucas is One Lucky Boy!

Hola Amiguis. Due to a snafu, there was no recap for Wednesday, so I am going to briefly go over important points from that capitulo and then continue on with Thursday's recap. Here's the earworm.Aint No Sunshine.

Shall we begin?


The producer of that Chica Ripoll campaign likes Armie. She wants to know if he has ever modeled, would he like to model, he is flattered but won't. He's married.

The school principal calls the Ripoll House and the maid gives the phone to Greta, who promptly blows a gasket. Dani is not in school, skipped school. Greta yells for Fausto. Seems Chava dropped Dani off, watched her go into the school and then left. So now this is Fausto's fault. He and his freewheeling method of dealing with the girls, but especially Dani. Poor Fausto looks so bereft. Greta calls Dani's cell phone and leaves a voice mail that says come home now or else. Poor Dani is outside the police station crying. When Dani gets home, Greta chews her out and she's grounded and no cell phone or computer. She is confined to her room to study. Dani has just lost all her teen lifelines.

Chava goes to the police station and pays Lucas a visit. Chava pulls out the medallion. Lucas tells him it's his. Seems that his Papa won this medal for boxing. Lucas never knew his Papa, and this is all he has. Chava says how alike they are in many ways. Chava goes to visit the Commandante and finds out that all Lucas needs to be released from the hoosegow is for Sofia to drop the charges. Chava will pass it on to Sofia.

Sofia is going over the Ripoll campaign pictures with Alexa, Pato, and Silvana. Everyone likes them but Sofia, she feels they are a bit riskee so to speak. Now on to Thursday:

                                           Sofia isn't liking these pics.
