Pasión y Poder Episodes #76 and #77 Friday, January 29th 2016 Ah, murder, taking that final step into h e double hockey sticks.
Wow, no repeats tonight, we get right into the action!
As you may recall, Hummy had made some nasty remarks, and had really tested Eladio's patience. Well, Eladio responds by lunging at the old man with his fist in the air determined to strike him. Julia has to hold Hubs back, and assures him that she believes in his innocence. However, nearly being struck doesn't stop the old man from opening his mouth. He goes on to say: that he hopes that this accusation (about Eladio murdering his first associate, Smith) doesn't get connected with The Ratt's extermination. After all, Eladio is still a suspect. Julia has had it with her father's nasty remarks and she shouts at the old man to shut up. "Leave my husband alone, he's innocent", she shouts at her father.

Muchacha Italiana Viene a Casarse #109 1-29-16 BIANCHI, for crying out loud, BIANCHI!!!
Freddie's head didn't pop off and fly around the room (thanks for that image, Sneaky) but she did collapse and slide out of the chair onto the floor and she wails as Pilar holds her and cries that she is sorry, Federica was so young and had suffered so much. Of course these people don't know what a closed door is so Dante walks right up and asks what's going on. Now, friends, whoever said that Pilar has more on the ball than she's letting on, take a bow. Pilar and Freddie smoothly switch roles and Pilar begins to cry and wail uncontrollably as Freddie pretends to comfort her. Freddie says, "She's fine, we're getting closer and she was telling me about that evil Maximo. How could you work for somebody like him?" Dante defends Maximo, "He got me out prison, he wanted me to be a good man!" A good man? Freddie thinks Dante's face and demeanor are like that of a beast. No! They don't need help. She will get Domingo. She dismisses him.
Pedro and Fiorella walk through the living room. Fiorella frets about how sad Gianna is and decides she will flash Gianna a smile every time she looks at her. She asks how it went at ACorp. He, Eloisa and Osvaldo plan to meet, Fiorella will attend.
Domingo flirts with Simoneta as she brushes Pilar's hair and tells her how spiffy she'll look when they go on their walk around the Ranch. Pilar is silent, her brow is furrowed. Eloisa approaches and notices this and that Pilar is more quiet than usual. Domingo mentions that she was talking to Freddie a bit ago. Eloisa goes ballistic and leaves the room yelling for Freddie. There's a cute little bit where Domingo clumsily tries to tell Simoneta that he is....he is....enamorado Pilar says with a roll of her eyes!

El Hotel de los Secretos #4, 1/28/16 Thursday: This novela is going to the dogs
For all the night-owls and early birds who can't wait to discuss what just happened, here is a posting for you. Parte Uno follows with the goings on at our resplendent resort hotel, which is currently doubling as Murder Mystery Mansion. Parte Dos will come after the sun comes up on the East Coast. [Note: some scenes are combined to make them longer.]
Isabel is in Julio's room in the servants' quarters. She is offended when Julio calls her Isabel. It's Srta. Alarcon to you. He gets a slap for his insolence. She's angry that he's lied to her. Julio wonders if she's more offended that he lied or that he's a servant. He doesn't think she's been straightforward with him either, having not mentioned her upcoming nuptials. Isabel says she only found out about the arrangement a few hours before the announcement. They trade insults. He seems to have the last word as he pulls out Cristina Olmedo's bloody uniform. When Isabel says she doesn't understand what he's trying to say, he replies that no, she wouldn't understand, she's been coddled, spoiled, she's capricious. She knows nothing of the real world, his world. Why is he saying these things to her, she wants to know. He tells her the truth of who he is and why he is there, holding his sister's bloody clothing. He's there to find out who hurt her. Isabel is sure no one hurt her, she was dismissed for theft. Julio retorts she stole nothing and he is going to make sure people like her don't make payoffs so justice isn't done. They seem pretty angry with each other.

Roberto and Alicia are discussing the general director position and how he is backing Luciana for that job and working against Alicia. She needs to remember that Luciana is the daughter of the owner. Alicia says that Luciana at the helm would be the worst possible thing to happen to Icónika. Roberto adds that it would be the best for Alicia. She wants to know what he meant by that.
At Icónika, Augusto talks with Elías who tells him to not beat around the bush and just tell him what he wants. Augusto wants him to be an adviser to his wife soon to be ex-wife Beatriz. Elías looks puzzled.
In the board room Valeria continues to serve the coffee and chit chat with everyone there to their delight. Someone actually says the mother is so much nicer than the daughter.

Muchacha Italian Viene a Casarse #107 1-27-16 She's ALIVE!!! or Assvaldo becomes Osvaldo?
Of course Assvaldo didn't shoot our beloved (well, by most of us anyway) Fiorella so lets get some other bits and pieces out of the way first!
Diana is arrested for suspicion of murder. The gun she accidentally shot Vitto with was used to commit a murder. Vitto gets Adela and Rey to keep Betito while he tries to help Diana.
Gianna has a bad tachycardia attack and Roxi helps to calm her.
Apparently Katia has been sniffing around Gael and Benni. Roxi tells the skank off but she barely seems affected. Skank probably has this kind of confrontation with wives and girl friends at least twice per week. Although when Fiorella was missing Gael was all lovey-dovey huggy comfort, by the end of the episode Gianna is talking to Roxi about wanting to make up with Gael! Gael and Gianna are invited to a fancy restaurant for a dinner with Katia and Augustin. Gianna frets and suspects Katia will show up at the dinner half naked and fawning all over Gael.

El Hotel de los Secretos #2, 1/26/16 Tuesday: Out, Out, Damned Spot Or Something Smells Rotten In Hotel De Los Alarcón
[With heavenward apologies to The Bard…..]
As Diego and Sra. Teresa Alarcón smile triumphantly to themselves and the congratulatory guests at the success of their dastardly plan (as Viewerville deduces it to be) to this point, a disgusted Julio exits to the balcony outdoors to take a much needed smoke and ponder…..whatever. Suddenly a pensive Isabela comes out onto the balcony and accepts a cigarette from the mysterious man off the train. “—How come I run into you every time I’m about to take a train I don’t care to take?” He smiles suavely at her. “—Perhaps somebody needs to convince you. Sometimes it’s better to stay on the platform.” He asks if she’s alright. She says perfectly fine. He smiles charmingly and chuckles a bit. “--Should I take you away with me?” “—You’d do that for me?” He suggests if one isn’t persuaded by Fate, it’s best not to take the train ride because once you decide to get off it might be too far for you to get back again. Just then El Depraved de Diego (G-r-r-r-r) comes out and the fragile moment is broken. He walks onto the balcony looking for Isabel as Julio strides quickly into the shadows, formally wishing her congratulations on her engagement.
Diego inquires who the man is. “Dunno. Some guest of the hotel.” Diego and she go back into visit said invitees to their engagement party and to dance together. Definitely Julio has made one huge impression on her (just as he has–despite his rather non-existent visual appeal in parts of Viewerville as leading man material).

Antes muerta que Lichita #85 Friday 1/22/16
We are starting out with returning to Alicia and Santiago at their dinner date where Santiago is promising Alicia he will do all he can to help her get over Roberto. She adds that it is a lost cause already between her and Roberto because he is already married. Santiago sees the marriage as the least of the problems because not everybody marries for love: people marry for all sorts of reasons. Alicia's cell phone suddenly rings and it is a very distraught Dafne on the other end telling Alicia that she just cannot take it anymore and also asking her to come over please. Santiago keeps looking over his shoulder to see what Roberto is doing. (He better keep looking over his shoulder.
Of course, Magos' party is out of control and she has done nothing to bring it back under control being as immature and goofy as she is. It seems like the police have arrived. Her friends think that is great because they will get everyone under control. Magos has to remind them that they all could be in hot water with no licenses for parties and their "crooked" business they are running. Pau and Gerry try to make a run for it but Magos drags them back.
Back at the restaurant, Luciana wants to talk about Santiago and Alicia. Roberto tries to get her back on track to talk about themselves. Roberto wants to talk about not being able to live forever at the mansion. Luciana wants his support for her to returning to work at Icónika. Her main reason is so that he will see she is so much more talented than Alicia and she is back to talking about how much she hates Alicia.

Eloisa is unshaken in her resolve to welcome Fiorella into the Angeles family and deflects insults from Assvaldo and Federica. Pedro and Fiorella hug Eloisa, Sergio proposes a toast. Freddie's attempts to sour the mood with constant cracks about how she's going to grab the Angeles fortune go ignored. Eloisa declares that two people marrying who really love each other is worth celebrating and she doesn't care what anyone has to say about Fiorella and Pedro's marriage and everybody who lives in the Angeles house will respect them! Eloisa's expansive mood includes Roxi whom she invites to move back into the Ranch. Roxi coolly declines and Eloisa coolly accepts her refusal.
Gael goes by Papi Chulo, his dad, Augustin's apartment. It's a trick. Augustin isn't there, Katia is and before you can say Katiaisaskank, she unasses her robe and stands before him naked. She doesn't care that he has a novia, she's not jealous. Augustin arrives, Skankia darts out of the room and Gael stutters his reason for being there and gets the heck out the door. [Hmmm, I bet Skankia had something to do with the ending of Papi Chulo's marriage, chick's morals are lower than a snake's belly in a wagon rut.]

After the kiss, Alicia tells Santiago she is open to also having a personal relationship with him as long as they keep work and their personal lives separate. Santiago talks about himself wanting to get married and have children. It also turns out he is not a one trick pony. He has several businesses: Peoples' Café, a restaurant chain, a few boutique hotels and he a partner in a real estate firm.
At the park, Roberto tries to explain to Mateo how much he wants to be with him andhow much he loves him. Mateo quotes his mother: she told him that if a person REALLY wants to do something, they will find a way to do it. His mother left her "super heroine" job for him but Roberto refused to. Roberto accuses Sheila of lying to Mateo about him. She sees it all differently. He wants to know if she is hanging around with another criminal just like her. She takes exception with that. The guy she is with is not like him. Roberto says he has changed. He is a married man and successful. She has had enough of Roberto. He wants to spend some time with Mateo there at the park. Sheila decides it is time to go.
At the mansion, Gumaro and Luciana have done the deed and we see them all happy with themselves in her bed. Luciana tells him he can call her "tú" when they are not out in public. They hear Dafne in the mansion so Gumaro hides. Later outside at the bonsai station, Gumaro is feeling guilty so he tells Luciana he is quitting. She feels guilty, too, being "very" married. We hear her say not to rush; not to quit until he has another job. That is just what she told him yesterday. We have come full circle. They are kissing again.

Antes muerta que Lichita 1/19: power outage stymies recapper
our power went out today due to ?? Who knows? It was out in most of Durham NC. By the time it came back on Ezra didn't have time to do his recap before he had to go to class.
Here are some bullet points.
- Alicia tells her mom she wants to move out and live on her own.
- Gumaro and Luciana kiss a lot. Bea almost catches them in the bonsai pergola and in their hasty exit they knock over a lot of the little trees, which Luciana later blames on Dafne. She tells Bea she needs an exorcist for Dafne and Bea is seriously considering it.
Due to all the kissing Gumaro says he'll quit (because he's feeling a small amount of guilt) but Roberto says, no, stay and spy some more, so there's more kissing in the corners.
- Roberto keeps calling the number Mateo called from. Sheila has a partner in crime and they have cooked up something but we don't know what it is. She finally tells Roberto he can meet with Mateo at a playground but he better not try anything because the law is on her side. Sheila tells Mateo: "Your dad was lying when he said he loved you and had a room ready for you. He told me you're a bother and he wants to be rid of you." This was by far the low point of the episode. Roberto goes to a playground for the meet but our indoor antenna failed toward the end of the episode and I don't know if he saw Mateo yet.
- Our idiot Nacho struts around trying to figure out what to do with his insurance money windfall. He boasts he will be a famous entrepreneur.
- Santi comes to Ikonika to seal the deal, reminds all that he wants only Alicia to head his campaign. Roberto capers jealously in the hallway as Santi and Alicia have a quiet moment together after the meeting. He wants her to lighten up a little but will respect her business-only stance. Alicia can't help bringing up the photo of Santi with the hotel heiress. He says: "She's cold and boring and plays with her nose hairs. That picture is from two years ago and our romance only lasted a month." Alicia is embarrassed but Santi is pleased that she cares.
- Augusto tells Alicia: "When Robert becomes president of API you can be director General of Ikonika." She says she doesn't have enough experience, he tells her to stop being so self-effacing.
- Beto warns Gumaro: "Drako is on the way." In the TyM garage Gumaro beeps the horn at the perfect moment and Drako drops the papers. Gumaro picks them up, scans them, and pockets one, having to do with some company ... might be funny business to take to the Naugahyde policeman.
- Brisa finds Alicia's damning old "testimonial" (HOW I HATE IKONIKA) from long ago on her hard drive. Braulio says, delete it. Instead, Brisa loses it.
- At lunch Alicia and Santi tell each other their favorite desserts. When he says his Granny's rice pudding is his favorite, Alicia gives him a big long kiss.

Os wants to know if she’s going to be mad at him forever, he doesn’t want to lose her but if she doesn’t accept his apology they’re not going to be able to go on, and Sonia leaves to puke (I feel kinda pukey too – is it him?)
Everyone is yelling for the bride and groom to kiss, but Elo puts a damper on things, yelling, ‘This is a joke, right?’ Pietro says he has never been so serious about anything. Elo thinks they’ve been carrying on all along (and they have really) but Pietro and Fiorella tell her they repressed their love until the day of the unweddings when Pietro went looking for Fi and they got together and decided to get together.

"If you try to accuse us, we will release the video and your precious daughter will not be able to snag a wealthy husband! I've had you investigated and you've pulled one con job after another!"
"Why, I'm not going to let myself be blackmailed by a cabaret singer!" shouts Benigno. "Why did you do it?" screeches Celeste at Aitana!
"For entertainment! I was tired of being your puppet!" Benigno turns on Sonia again. He doesn't believe Sonia and tries to call her bluff. Sonia is ready. She has several copies of the video with different investigative agencies all of which are prepared to release it should something happen to her or Assvaldo. Grasping at straws, Aitana's parents wonder what about Assvaldo, he's in the video, too! Sonia answers with a mild sneer that Assvaldo has nothing to lose. Celeste admits that Sonia has their and Aitana's reputation in her hands. They agree to shut up. Sonia tosses her head triumphantly and commands smugly glowing Assvaldo to get her lap top and purse. He does and follows her swishing, swirling, pink hemline out of the de la Riva's house, carrying her bags.

Diana and Vitto
Diana cries to Vitto that this whole mess is her fault and she feels so guilty and she's sooo repentant! Vitto tells her not to worry, his focus is on paying the ransom and getting Betito back. They meet the next day with a hoodied and shaded Anibal who demands to be shown the money if they want to see Beto; Vitto demands to know Beto is well first. Anibal grabs the aluminum briefcase with the money after a brief struggle, flinging Vitto and Diana to the ground. Anibal growls that the money had better be right or Beto will die, and takes off!

Gael calls Augustin "Papa" (awwww) as he introduces him to Gianna, Benni and Roxi. We learn that the Chulo one is a writer. Roxi sort of apologizes for jacking him up earlier while reminding him she wouldn't have done so if he had come right out and said who he was. Augustin graciously apologizes and accepts responsibility. He invites them all to lunch but Roxi and Gigi have to go to class and off they run. Uh oh!

Looks like we ARE to understand, as I predicted, that Eloisa's misadventure in the barrio and involuntary/temporary status as a beggar would cause her to have a change of heart. Eloisa gives away a bunch of her clothes and shoes to the needy and plans to sell a lot of her jewelry and give the proceeds to charity. She also decides to accept Fiorella's suggestion that inequities don't just exist outside El Rancho Los Angeles but in it as well. Fiorella thinks the house staff should be able to dress as they please. Eloisa not only agrees but has Fiorella fitted for a pretty floral dress as per Fifi's request and allows Quina, Simoneta, Fidel and Benni to dress as they please. No more uniforms! She does advise against too loud colors. Eloisa even conducts her first table etiquette lesson with the house staff, enlisting Roxi to be her assistant. This is just the beginning of Eloisa's teaching them some bougie manners!

Luciana tells her that Augustolied saying he was going to New York and ended up in LA. Valeria tries to calm Luciana down and take her out of there. Luciana insists on staying. Alicia mentions the confidentiality expected by Augusto about the LA office. Beatriz calls her a liar and an evil woman who is out to steal her husband. Beatriz reminds Alicia that there is a God who sees all. She hopes he really punishes her. Beatriz refuses to hear any explanations. Valeria finally takes Beatriz to her room and asks Alicia to leave so Beatriz can rest. Luciana tells Alicia to leave before she throws her out in a condition worst than that of the Christ of Iztapalapa. Alicia and Luciana physically face off like two junior high girls ready to fight, huff and puff and then both back down. Alicia leaves. Luciana thinks Alicia was really scared of her.

Muchacha Italiana Viene a Casarse #97 1-13-16 HOT ZIGGETY DAWG! Some real action, Muchacha Peeps!
Right off the bat, my beloved Patio Peeps, one of you have a chance to make a contribution to tonight's summary because silly me started the recording late and I don't know what happened in the first segment! I was able to figure part of it out but I don't know how Fifi explained that yummy huggin' she was giving Pedro so feel free to fill in, Peeps!
(This is what I was able to figure out.) Freddie takes Eloisa to the bank and withdraws bribe money to pay off Vargas, ACorp accountant, who had demanded two years salary in exchange for the information about to whom monthly deposits were being made by ACorp. He takes a suitcase full of money and gives her the address, not the name, of the recipient. The address is of a mental hospital! More on that later.
Eloisa wakes up face down on the pavement in a, shall we say, humble part of town. She tries over and over without success to get people to tell her where she is. Mostly people ignore her but she manages to get enough change from a couple of passersby to call the Rancho. Pedro answers. The family marvels that Eloisa was able to call what with her dementia. Pedro confesses that Eloisa faked dementia to expose someone in the family whom she thought was trying to kill her. Sergio takes off with Fidel. Assvaldo mocks Pedro's desire to go with them.

Muchacha Italiana Viene a Casarse #96 1/12/16 Beware the Hooded Menace!!
(Lotta stuff happened so skipping the old - straight to the new.)
Gael tells Gia that Agustin wants to see him again. Gael's all up in the air about it- doesn't know if he wants to know him and confesses almost using again. Gia swears she will be with him day and night, all the time to help him through this and she reminds him how dangerous it is for him to take drugs and tries to help him see the situation calmly. Gael thinks its too late for he and Agustin to have a father/son relationship now, he's not a kid anymore. Gia tells to meet Agustin and maybe all he wants is a little love. Gael isn't sure he can give it to him. He agrees this time for Gia to go with him to the meeting tonight.
Aitana's fam plots together. Ai thinks Elo knows Fi and Pietro are together and that's why she cut Fi in to the will. Beg thinks Pietro and Fi are plotting together to take advandtage of Elo's dementia and they can tell the board about it and get Pietro out. Aitana's mom thinks the board won't care that Pietro is fooling around with the help. Beg sends Ai to RLA to snoop around and see if Pietro and Fiorella do have something going on. Ai and her mom protest Beg's using her and treating her like a soulless puppet. (apparently the family who plots together doesn't stay together.) Ai's mom warns her no nookie with Os while she's at the rancho.

They get him an icepack and start talking. She's glad she's a Mexican (no offense to her Cuban and Columbian workers) so they can understand one another and not press charges for any injury.
He hints that he sought them out (and he's not revealing how he knew that they were going to open up the U.S. subsidiary or where to find it) because he thinks they're going to be huge in L.A. and Iconika's work in Mexico had a huge impact on his brand. Alicia goes to look for her phone, and when she returns he's gone without even leaving his name.
