Sueño de amor, Ep. 17 (3.31.2016) The theme for today: Disappointment

México, D.F. (Not to be confused with Los Angeles, California, EEUU)

Complete idiot's guide to elusive thief catching FOR DUMMIES!
Dark is the night and visibility is low in this kind of costumes, so The Shady shadow knocks Ricardo down like a piñata. Before he runs away, he says something like, ''Sorry Ricardo, me duele la panza'' (it's hard to understand with that mask on). Of course the first thought that comes to Ricardo's mind is his ''beloved'' Esperanza, and the chase is on. People running in a black costume out of halloween season is probably something you see every day in Mexico, since nobody seems to pay attention.
  
Nearby, muy oronda, unbeknown to her of the danger she is in, Esperanza nibbles on a croissant before getting home. The day was long and she is hungry, so why wait? The smell of freshly baked bread takes her to the streets of Paris and suddenly Ricky Le mime shows up right in front of her yielding a gun. He almost runs her over and both face what he thinks is his nemesis, but turns out is only a dummy. They fell in the trap, because in one of the apartments on the second floor, The shady villain have all the time in the world to take the perfect picture with his gigantic zoom lens. Where does he keep it? Is he renting that place? Isn't easier to carry the Samsung Galaxy S6 and get the same high quality in low light and even moving pics?? He is so bad I am sure part of his vendetta against Ricardo is to post them on Kracy's Facelook wall, just to see the sucking lemon face she does.

After this incident with the mannequin and the gun, Esperanza is perplex and Ricardo is forced to confess part of his secret a cuentagotas (in dribs and drabs). Even when she has been begging since the beginning that she need explanations, she doesn't get the whole enchilada. Ricardo only does what he does best, promises, promises...

Pasión y poder, Episode 115, Thursday, March 31: Of cakes and fakes and folks on the take


Nina lashes out at Consuelo

The sight of Consuelo leaning on Arturo for comfort is more than Nina can bear.  [Maybe Nina remembers when she was the one taking tearful refuge in Arturo's arms the last time Chimp Boy was in the hospital.]  If the younger woman wants to see her son, Nina tells her bitterly, let her visit him at the mansion – especially if she continues to hang out with that dangerous chimp-beater, Miguel.  

Consuelo protests that Miguel would never hurt a child, especially her son.  Nina isn't so sure:  Behind his gloomy, hypocritical face (cara de mustio) lurks a psychopath!  [But I think she's only saying that because she's a narcissist.]

¡Ya basta, Nina! says Arturo.  Miguel was only defending Consuelo.

"Whose side are you on?" Nina wants to know.

"I'm on the side of both of my sons because I love them both."

Nina doesn't buy it.  It's Miguel's fault that Chimp Boy is languishing in the hospital.  [And it's Arturo's fault that he isn't languishing in the reclusorio, but Agustín isn't around to remind them of that.]

A closer look



Darkness has befallen the mean streets of San Cristóbal. A weary traveller coughs up tiny chunks of lung as he asks a passerby about a certain Rufino Barragán. However, it appears that Rufino went to a better place or, to be more accurate, he was sent there (lo pasaron a mejor vida). The stranger explains to the passerby that, before getting dispatched to the Big San Cristóbal in the sky, Rufino Barragán used to deliver some letters on his behalf to the head housekeeper of the Gran Hotel, Doña Ángela Gómez. Rufino was paid handsomely for his services but now that he is, ahem, unavailable, coughing stranger will have to find himself a new courier. *Hint hint*

Sueño de amor #16 3/30/16

Here we go!!!! I started this late and will deal with typos later today.

I have to admit I would have loved to have been one of the kids in the "ataque" scene. Anyway, tonight we have the appearance of Carmen Salinas as Margarita Manzanares the principal of Instituto Vasconcelos. She is a hoot with her famous "Oooooh" which always reminds me of George Takei of Star Trek fame and his famous "Oooooh". Anyway, . . .

We see Esperanza scoop up Selena as Selena presses the fire alarm button. The school is evacuated and Ricardo is saved from his embarrassing fate eventhough as luck would have it he has to rescue and carry Pámela out who is having a panic attack. As the teachers and students congregate outside of the school, Tracy plants a big kiss on Ricardo to mark her territory just so Esperanza can see and she does.

In the meantime at Ernesto's house, Ernesto is warning his lackey Murillo that he better contact Tracy and make an appointment with her for him or he will lose his job and by the way (since Murillo is in the middle of a coughing jag) he should stop smoking those damn cigarettes.

Hotel de los Secretos #44: Hidden Charms


·        Belen bumps into Diego on the way to the police station and gets waylaid.  He forces her to watch the Double’s informal burial on the side of the road.  Belen blubbers as Garrido digs.  Diego shoots Garrido dead and blames Belen as the devil what made him do it.  He then tells her to start running and essentially not to stop till she’s far, far away.

·        Andres, pigheadedly insists Belen will magically appear again.  He persuades Natalia to fetch the town padre.  He has the priest, Mama Angela, Julio and Natalia there for the supposed wedding.  Our stubborn stand-up guy gets stood up.  Belen doesn’t return and nobody knows where she’s gone, tho’ Angie does suspect at least one reason why she split.  (Good riddance to ungrateful, money-grubbing garbage!  Viewerville has the feeling, though, that like flies to feces, she won't be able to resist the temptation to return for Andres and to get hitched and thus lay claim to his inheritance once again.)

Chapter 113: Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth

Errant children can be a great equalizer even after they are legally adults. They bring out both the best and the worst in their parents. It has been said that the rich and the poor are very alike when such things happen. And there are certainly things that money of whatever age cannot fix. – D.D.

Arturo had seen Daniela's test results: positive for cocaine. She was her usual petulant self, telling him to leave her alone and trying to leave. He didn't allow her to do this. In her usual bid for attention she tried to claim he didn't care about her. For all that she was actually twenty-one years old she had the attitude of one half that age. When he told her she was not alone and that he would take her to the rehab center she looked as though she were facing her execution.
Daddy, daddy, you can't do this to me. Let me do another test. I'm sure it was wrong.”
But Arturo was having none of this. He told her he was taking her to rehab and that was that. He did not allow her to leave with her friend. He insisted that he was taking her home to her mother then to the rehab center.

Sueño de Amor (SdA) #15. Tuesday March 29, 2016. Yes You Caught My Ex With Her Tongue Down My Throat But She Doesn't Mean A Thing To Me! I Luuurve You!

At a glance

-- Luca's ex is back in town. She puts the kibosh on the PatoLuca pairing on the day of her arrival. Now, this is what I call a self-respecting villana.
-- Erasmo is fired then rehired by Mario. 
-- Kracy and Principal Crazy-Eyes form the League of Extraordinary Crazies.
-- Kracy warns Esperanza to stay away from her Reecherd. Ernesto tries to pump Pato for info about Esperanza and Ricardo. Ernesto wants to ally with Kracy in order to keep the star-crossed lovers apart.
-- Still no valid explanation for Ricardo's 20-year-long disappearing act. Just something about a passer named El Coyote and six people lost in the desert.

A closer look

We begin tonight’s foray into Sueñolandia with Ricardo’s appointment as the new PE teacher of the Musturd School for The Emotionally Stunted, or Colegio Vasconcelos as Osorio prefers to call it.

Mario Kuri, the mascot for kitty-whipped husbands everywhere, fires recently-promoted Erasmo.


The Three Stooges inaugurate their sandwich stand for tortas de chilaquiles or chilortas outside the two schools. Childhood obesity isn’t gonna foster itself. They give away the first chilortas for free, then sell the others at half price. They incur a significant loss and fear that the grand opening will soon be followed by a grand closing.

Pasion y Poder #112 20160328 Your Honor, I Was Raped Last Night, I Might Be Pregnant, and It's Making Me Very Horney

*In front of the judge, Connie accuses Erick of rape.  The judge says no police report plus no rape kit equals no rape.  He can't consider her accusation without proof. 

*Gina asks Miguel how the custody case is going.  Miguel doesn't know because Auggie suggested that he to stay away from Connie.  Neither the judge nor Erick appreciate him coveting his brother's wife.  Since, he's socially awkward he didn't get the memo about this being generally frowned upon by most of the world, so he'll have to take Augustin's word for it.

*Dave and Dani are still in bed together.  Dave tells Dani that she can be herself around him.  Don't change for me, he says.  Translation: in manspeak he's saying that he's attracted to Angelina Jolie, not Jennifer Aniston. He likes him a a little dirty girl.  Dani assures him that deep inside, she has always been the "Disney years Miley Cyrus" and not the "the Wrecking Ball and twerkin' Miley Cyrus".  Matter of fact, she's a virgin too.  Dave buys this because he's stupid.  Dani tells him that she loves him and wants him to like her "different" than her sister.  He assures her that he will.

Sueno de amor, #14 - 03/28/16 P.E. Teacher needed - Requirements: good looking guy, with great body, killer smile and very complicated family life

Happy belated Easter to those who celebrated this weekend. I hope you all rested, filled your tummies and got ready for a new week of Sueno de amor (and other regular activities, you know).


This felt like a filler episode, so I kind of rambled a lot. Looking forward to your ramblings in the comment section.
We pick up right from where we left off, with Ernesto and Ricardo’s piss contest fight about who is the better man.
Ernie pretends that he has no clue about the guy who was following Ric ; so what if he was his employee, he doesn’t care what his personnel does outside of office hours. And he won’t take this interrogatory anymore. What is Ric, a cop? No, he’s just a mere teacher, Ernie adds with contempt.
Well, Esperanza is just a teacher, too, and you still fell in love with her, Ric counter-attacks. Ernie proudly agrees and not only that, but he and Espe also share a child. Yeah, one that he abandoned, Ric points out. Things degenerate and a fight is about to erupt, but Super Spy is definitely the better fighter, managing to twist Ernie’s hand and kneel him at the same time. As he walks out, Ric adds that he won’t leave Esperanza’s side anymore and he’s definitely not afraid of Ernie (who's screaming for security at the point).

Patoluca are still post bliss (not that kind of bliss, thankfully). She’s in awe over his amazing-ness (what else is new?). He always finds ways to scare her to death provoke her, she didn’t even have the time to prepare (did she by any chance wet her pants during the jump? I know I would have). Luca assures her that they were safe the whole time and, besides, he would never hurt her.
This last statement gives Pato the sads: yeah, maybe he would never hurt her intentionally, but she can’t forget the fact that he’s about to go away for a long time (if only he could go faster). He reassures her that they will be OK – he loves her and yada yada yada ... smooches smooches smooches….

El Hotel de los Secretos, #43, Monday 3/28/16: The key. Remember the key?

Felipe asks Garrido where he can get a lot of wine for cheap. Garrido recommends a guy named Jorge Arenas. Felipe needs an introduction. He swears it will be worth Garrido's trouble. They take off to meet with Arenas.

Teresa asks Diego to prepare a discreet burial for Baby #1. He picks up the phone, then pauses. We don't need a funeral.

Isabel stands in the hallway in yet another white dress. She sees wet Julio hustling out of Cecilia's room as Cecelia's voice calls from the other side of the door, "don't be a coward." Isabel makes as if to knock, but Mateo materializes behind her to say that Mrs. Limantur is waiting in the garden to meet her for breakfast. Also, a maid named Emelia needs help reading a letter. Isabel agrees to read them the letter on the way to the garden. (Standard letter-from-Mom stuff. Mom can write, but she doesn't know that Emelia can't read?)

Sofia looks bad. She knows what she did. She can't even look at the dead baby on the bed and she slides the bedroom door shut behind her without turning around. She leans (actually, sort of rubs up in a creepy way) against the door to the hallway and pleads, "come back, come back." Wow, that'll be a fine sight for Alfredo to come home to.

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 6 (March 28, 2016)

---And Baby Makes Four, or Three, or Two, But Not One

Our ethical, dedicated, handsome and hopelessly in love Dr. Carlos, is on the horns of a well-calculated, well-timed dilemma, not of his own making. With the announcement of the (fake) pregnancy of his very recently ex-girlfriend, he has various outcomes staring at him.

1) There is a baby. He doesn't want to give up Fernanda, but his mother and Isabela are ready to take over the management of his relationships. Fernanda breaks up with him because she believes he must "do the right thing" by the baby. There will be wedding bells in his not too distant future.

2) There is a baby. He just can't give up Fernanda. He defies his mother. He begs Fernanda not to break up with him. They love each other madly, deeply. He is certain they can work this out and still be together. She agrees to stand by him.

3) There is no baby. He will try desperately to prove its non-existence. He begs Fernanda not to break up with him until there is solid proof, one way or another. If there is no baby, he won't have to give up Fernanda and his mother, Marissa, will finally be convinced Isabela wasn't right for him, or for her.

With time, 1 & 2 will be eliminated, but this week, he doesn't know that. Isabela says she doesn't expect anything of him (and that is as fake as the pregnancy). Marissa wants a wedding as soon as possible--with Isabela, of course, and to end his relationship with Fernanda, of course.

What will he do? How does he tell Fernanda? What does he tell Fernanda? What is the right thing to do?

This is not the CAMINO we wanted to take, but we will have to follow along and see where it goes. Tune in and see (7 pm).

Weekend Discussion: Crimes of Fashion, 4th Edition 3/25/16


There is so much Stürm und Drang among the denizens of the DF upper crust that it seemed appropriate to understand why these emotional conflicts exist. A few of the women in the midst of this conflict might have made their lives better – in their own minds – with better fashion choices. It was only the sudden death of Monserrat Moret that made Nina Perez de Montenegro the main focus of this latest edition. She is no Ann Grenville in money matters and even now still has much to learn of fashion in the world she hopes to stay in.

Thanks to Soledad Romero-Vargas, our fashion critic here at Vanidades, we bring you these fashion felonies. Enjoy.

Pasión y poder, Episode 111, Thursday, March 24, 2016: Okay, maybe I AM jealous!


It's been a while, hasn't it?  I've just come home from an extended and rather bittersweet visit with family.  We decided to drive this time, and as we made our way towards Boston, I imagined rolling down the window and shouting out to my CarayCaray friends somewhere south of our path – JudyB and Susanlynn and Diana, just to name a few.  (Of course I kept my thoughts to myself.  I'm not sure Mr. Maven would get it, or not entirely.)

I've now caught up with our imaginary PyP crowd I think,  thanks in no small part to the fabulous recaps here (and no thanks at all to the brain trust at Univisión, which is still playing chicken with my television provider, ATT U-Verse*).  I'm especially grateful to Urban Anthropologist for taking on last Thursday and doing her usual impeccable job.

I think this is tonight's episode.  Fingers and toes duly crossed.

*Update – Yay! Univisión and ATT have kissed and made up!  Will any of the fools on the screen do the same?

Arturo is where we left him last night, still fulminating.

Sueño de amor, Ep #13 (3.24.2016) Surprises and secrets and plans, oh my!

I want to make this worthy of your time, so I will be brief.

♪ ♫ Virgen de la paz, te amo, ven a mí, junto a mí
Virgen de la paz te quiero, siempre escuchas tú mi ruego ♪ ♫

Sweet mother of Jesus,
Give us the wisdom of the Holy Spirit so we can own and administer your gifts and know how to multiply them and share them will all the people you put in our paths. Amen  

Se consigue más con miel que con hiel
Ricardo has a plan and Pato is the perfect ally. Of course we never get to know anything they tell each other. You can get more with honey than with gall sounds true when you see Pato getting closer to Ricardo than to her biological father, Ernesto de la Colina. Now, regarding the love advice, that's another story, like asking Oprah for a diet that works but who am I to judge? I wouldn't trust Ricardo with a plastic butter knife, but anyway, now that Luca is going away to Járvar, she doesn't want to wait 20 years for him to come back (cough) she will miss him. The distance shouldn't kill the love dream they have. It worked for him. Pato will always have skype (please sponsor us-wink). 

After knowing that Neto had something to do with Pato's scholarship, Pera gets very upset, because she doesn't want to owe favors to anybody. Even if that ''anybody'' owes her 17 years of child support. He insists saying that no matter what, they will be together one day as a family.

In the meantime, in the middle of some street in CDMX, a skipping Erasmo hugs Kristela, sealing their relationship. 

After Esperanza did the recording gig on Silvana and she almost lost her job, now she sleeps with her one good eye open and has started to play Big Sister checking the closed circuit videos so she can reverse Esperanza's trick with evidence to fire her, assuming that the romance between our protagonists is true, and believe me, it is. Maybe Ricardo can hack this system and watch Pamela closely to know La Sombra's whereabouts.

Another of your blog mom's projects: tshirts of a little guy in a stovepipe hat

I don't, as you know, make any money off this blog, but that doesn't mean I don't try to make money elsewhere! I'm interested in your opinions: could a character this obscure be popular today? Let me know what you think in the comments! Thanks!

I love old pop culture. I've been bringing back to life Samuel Zagat's early 20th century comic strip called "Gimpel Beynish the Matchmaker." Gimpel was wildly beloved by the people of New York City's Lower East Side. Gimpel, that shlemiel, seldom succeeded in anything he did, yet he never got discouraged and his self-esteem was unimpaired. That must have been very heartening for folks struggling to make a buck.

You can see the comics as I clean them up and translate them, here: GimpelBeynish.com and also see two books of his comics which I've published.

Wondering if Gimpel could be loved by the modern world too, I just make a couple Gimpel tshirts. They are only $14.99. Click on either picture to see more colors and styles...

1. An impoverished millionaire turns his pockets inside out



2. Gimpel visits the high seas during World War I, falls in the ocean and is rescued by a submarine. Here is is looking through the periscope!


Thanks!

El Hotel de los Secretos #41, 3/23/16: Detective Dagoberto Suarez, At Your Service!

Isabel is arguing with Jacinto about how upset Diego is going to be with him for letting her enter through the servants’ entrance, when they run into Angela, who’s trying to see where the assailant who attacked her and Andres went. She tells Isabel and Jacinto that someone just tried to kill Andres! She rushes back to Andres with Isa and Jacinto following. They see the blood on the back of Angela’s head where she was bonked, and then they find the filled syringe and the jug used to hit Angela. Isa makes sure no one touches either item, and wraps them up to preserve fingerprints. Andres wakes up and is utterly perplexed to hear that someone tried to kill him.

Isabel goes to Diego’s dark office to call Ayala to tell him about the murder attempt. She’s unpleasantly surprised when the light goes on, and she sees her husband rising like a vampire from the couch. She continues with her call, and takes about five beats too long to remember to mention her married name to Detective Ayala. Diego notices. Ayala, whose hands are tied by Teresa’s judge friend, has to tell Isa that he can’t go out to the hotel, despite the gravity of the situation. He promises to be there first thing in the morning, and asks her to make sure the evidence is kept safe, and Andres not be left alone. He’s sure the attacker won’t try again tonight. But lock the door! Diego scoffs, and wonders who would want to kill a mere waiter. Isa ignores him.

Sueño de amor #12 3/23/16

Well, away we go!

In Ricardo's classroom, he is telling Pámela that after class they will be going to the principal's office to talk about her gluing him to the chair.

Félix makes a point of stopping by Esperanza's room to talk to her. He recognizes her as the one who made the recording of Silvana. He lets her know he is there to supervise Silvana but also tells her he is all about following the rules. Nobody is above the rules. Salma records it all. Silvana spies from the back of the room.

At Ernesto's office he is telling his investigator that he needs him to find out exactly who this Ricardo is; to use all of his contacts. Ricardo knows all about self defense. There has to be more. Viviana comes in wanting to talk about their son Adrián. She cannot get him to come home because he is afraid of Ernesto. They end up arguing as usual. She blames him. He blames her for babying him. For Viviana, the worst part is that her son is with her "rival". Hearing "rival" just makes Ernesto snicker and smirk.

Julio races to town to tell Det. Ayala that Andres is awake and has told him –along with Angela and Dr. Vicario—that it wasn’t an accident; he was attacked by the Gold Knife Killer and the horse got frightened and the rest is history.  Anyway, Ayala returns to the hotel to question Andres.

Diego has his goon and Jacinto spying on Isabel’s every move.

Dr. Vicario visits Teresa to give her the news that Andres has regained consciousness.  She head downstairs to ahem…“pay her respects”.

Hello Patio Pals! We’ll have to make do with a discussion page until a valiant volunteer takes over this recapping spot.

The mime bit took me by surprise and, I won’t lie to you, I did yell out an involuntary "What in the...?". However, after the initial shock, I was really charmed, not just by Ricardo’s performance but also by Esperanza’s reaction to it. This actress has won me over and, as much as I love
Cristián de la Fuente, I must admit that his co-protagonist is now the main reason I tune in.

Viviana confesses to Luca that she is still in love with Ernesto despite their long-term estrangement.

This recap has not been edited.  I'm way too tired.  The last ten minutes of this recap is sketchy.  My signal kept going in an out.  I missed a lot of what was going on. 

Julia's still pissed because Nina called her a homewrecker.  She recounts the sordid scene with Humberto.  Humberto tells Julia that Nina has no class.  The hand that "rocked her cradle wasn't wearing a diamond". 

Dani wants to cook Dave a romantic dinner.  As soon as Dave leaves the room, Dani calls Petra-Samantha, who walks her through the preparation. 

Lucita WTF asks Caridad to be her grandmother.  Caridad agrees. 

Julia visits Dave and they argue over the divorce.  Both Dave and Julia are stupid.  Really stupid.  Instead of rejoicing that she is free from her abuser, Julia is obsessing over why Eladio divorced her first.  Who cares?  One less beating to endure, one less egg to fry!  Duh!  Dave who has forgotten that Eladio sired Franco and boinked the Ratt reminds Julia that men don't like to be cheated on.  Julia's all like...if Eladio loved me, he wouldn't have divorced me!  Anyways, Julia finds the keys that Dani conveniently left on his counter.  Dave tells Julia that he doesn't owe her an explanation.  Julia is shocked that Dave didn't realize that Dani just pulled an alternative version of the old marking your territory by "leaving your underwear at his house trick".  Or is it the old leave an item at his house trick so that he will have to contact you again.

Sueño de Amor (SdA) #10. Monday March 21, 2016. Secrets To Be Unveiled And Pairings To Be Unpaired.

At a glance


-- Luca and Pato are separating. Thank you, Jesus!
-- Pedro learns the reason for Ricardo’s long absence, but we viewers don’t.
-- Tracy agrees to sign the divorce papers in exchange for custody of the kids.
-- Ernesto gives Pato back her scholarship and hires thugs to assault Ricardo.
-- Kristel gets a job at the only antro in Mexico City.
 

A closer look

We get a repeat of the restaurant scene where Pedro asks Ricardo for the reason of his two-decade-long disappearing act. Before he can answer, we’re teleported to the constructora. Outside, the Three Stooges attempt to dodge security to help Nacho talk to his wife, Begoña; and inside, Ernesto instructs Arleth to find out who the owner of Instituto Palacios is. He also asks her to contact Murillo from business intelligence for more in-depth information on Ricardo.

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 5 (Mar 21, 2016)

The Three Hombres and The Women Who Love Them

Luis Montero--The man with a plan
  • Amelia Altamirano del Alamo de Perez, younger daughter of rich rancher, Fernando Altamirano. She fell in love with Luis (older, but contemporary in age), sometime after finishing her prepa 19 years ago. They had at least one encounter al aire fresco and she ended up pregnant. He left her in the lurch, saying neither she nor the bebe were in his plans for the future. She pined for him for the next 19 years while married to Pedro, the Altamirano estate gardener (whom she had treated as an older brother to have fun with), who saved her from the disgrace of having a bastard child. Although always his favorite, her father kicked them out of the house anyway.
  • Mariana Altamirano del Alamo de Sotomayor, older daughter of Fernando. She's Amelia's envious sister, primarily because she was not the favored child. She fell in love with Luis, probably from seeing him with Amelia. He never showed any interest in her. Her father later forced her into a convenient, but loveless marriage to a rich (but ambitious) widower, Hernan. He has a daughter, Camila, from his first marriage. Mariana doesn't like her around. The couple is childless. Her interest in and immediate obsession with Luis is rekindled by a visit to his law offices with her father. She claims she's been in love with him for over 19 years. He is not interested in her amorous advances, but makes nice because she has information on Amelia he wants.
  • Marissa Gomez Ruiz de Montero, widowed rich bank president, considerably older than Luis. She seduced him into marriage 19 years ago by offering him a trip to Europe with her and her then 10-year old son, Carlos, to live and study to become a lawyer. He accepts without hesitation--it was his plan. She is now cognizant of her age and is afraid to lose him to a younger woman. She's still in love with this jerk. He has cooled to Marissa's bedroom advances. (P.S. Her son, Carlos, hates him.)
  • Andrea, leggy, young, blonde assistant to Isabela, the owner of a beauty/spa academy. Where she met Luis is not clear, but she fell in love with him and is blind as to what he is really like. He, on the other hand, knowing where his pocket change comes from, uses her for some afternoon delight and either thanks her or argues with her on the way out of the bedroom. She has decided that getting pregnant would be the ideal way to get him to leave his wife. So far, we've only been privy to one jealous temper tantrum from her when she caught him in his office with Mariana hanging all over him and looking like a kiss was happening.

El Hotel de los Secretos #38 One bad night and one good night coming up

Sorry for the length, I just couldn't shorten it and not take anything out that wasn't pertinent to the story.

We open with the boys from the hotel who helped with the mining explosion returning home, all dirty and tired. They are met by Benjamin who informs them that they have to make up their time absent from their jobs. What as ass.

Diego awakes to the cold reality of his new marriage, alone in the marital bed, while Isabel is checking on the baby and Sofia.  Sofia just wants to be left alone, Isabel just wants to help her. Perhaps her milk ducts are clogged, she gives her advice for that. Teresa comes in and sees the fussing baby, she said she’s going for Belen, the nodriza, wet nurse, which is a surprise to Isabel.

Julio is bringing coffee to the newest guest sitting in the lawn. Cecilia turns to see him and Julio has the shock of his life.

Pasión y Poder Capitulo #107 Friday, March 18th 2016 Hmm.. last weeks, you say, then why are the bad guys still winning and scheming??

At GLA, Eladio and Julia are about to sign the divorce papers that will bring an end to their marriage. They both struggle to get their signature on the papers, but end up dong so. In fact, Eladio does this funny thing where he takes out his pen to sign the papers, but then decides to use the pen that Julia used instead, and really struggles internally to bring himself to sign the papers. Julia is taken aback when Rueda explains that she and Eladio will be divorced in TWO DAYS. "So soon?!", she says in a disappointed tone. (Well, that's why it's called an "express divorce", my dear!) 

At Casa Montenegro, the Montenegro kids prove that they are still five years old. Daniela joins Regina, Erick, and Nina in the garden, and asks that Regina not set foot inside the living room, because David is there, and Daniela wouldn't want for poor little David to have a bad time at Casa Montenegro. Nina and Erick get upset when they find out that Regina and Jorge have been doubling dating with Miguel and Consuelo. That's when things get really heated between the three Montenegro children and they all start yelling and screeching at each other like five year olds who are fighting over who gets the last chocolate chip cookie. Nina finally shuts them up and puts them on time out and calls Regina and Daniela out on what they are doing wrong, but she fails to call out Erick on what he is doing wrong, because for Nina, her Chimp, can do NO WRONG. #NotCool #BadMother #MamasBoy 

Rueda says that the divorce can come out sooner since he's both Julia and Eladio's lawyer. He tells them that he'll keep them informed and leaves. Now alone, the two talk about their love, and Eladio says that "circumstances" separated them (Uh, no, it was the fact that you bedded another woman, knocked her up with your spawn, made her raise that spawn, lied about it, etc). When Julia tells Eladio how bad she feels about all this, he tells her "not as much as I do". Eladio then starts going on and on about his love for her. It's real and eternal and he laments that they couldn't find a solution to this "marriage crisis". He has realized that they won't be together in this life, but his tattoo says that they'll be together in another life. *rolls eyes* Julia has tears in her eyes and is so touched with his words that she embraces him.

Matilde is a "G" El Hotel De los Secretos #37 03/17/2016

Sorry for the late and short recap, I spent all morning trying to score Radiohead tickets!

Here is your recap:


  • Diego is not happy that his wife is spending so much time at the hospital, Isabel reminds him that the work she is doing is not a hobby or something that was meant to keep her entertained while she waited for them to get married, Ayala over hears the conversation and is told by Diego that he simply wants his wife to go home and rest.
  • The good doctor lays into Isa as well and tells her to go home and assume her responsibilities as an adult- for every hour she spends at her her husband will allow her to spend 3 in the hospital- Isa objects and tells him he is asking her to sell herself, the doctor disagrees and tells her that she can't act like a child, always demanding more, more and more but never giving anything up.

Sueño de amor episode #8 March, Thursday 17, 2016- Joy never leaves the Alegría family

I'm posting this for Pablo, everybody welcome and thank him for joining the team!

Everybody loves Richard
While Esperanza and Ricardo argue over the unbelievable coincidence that is having him as a neighbor, and he saying that he did it on purpose, after the bitter incident of the bumper collision, we see a sinister walking figure with a lion like mane and tigress eyes, springing out of the mover's truck, and overhearing his love promises approaches them. It's Kracy!
-Hi, I am Kracy, am his wife (squeezing his arm) and we love each other! Right Richerd? You must be Esperanza, right? MY HUSBAND has told me soooo little about you!

Chapter 106: Fallen Angels

So many people trust the wrong people in their lives. Betrayal is no respector of gender, relationship status, education, looks, or any other human quality. It can happen to the rich or the poor. It's not always about money, but when it is it's bigger than the owners of the money because it often has its roots in things beyond greed. It also has lingering effects into other areas of life. The next stop for some of these people will not be the Twilight Zone that Rod Serling wrote about, but it will be something equally unknown to them.  I won't feel any pity when that happens.  – D.D.

El Hotel De Los Secretos #36, 3/16/16: Life Lessons

Diego has a serious case of wedding night sexual frustration, but holds it together long enough to approve Isabel heading off with Doc Vic and Matilde to attend to the wounded men in the exploded mine. As soon as he’s back in the honeymoon suite, however, he starts swigging wine straight from the bottle, and tosses flower-filled vases across the room. He cuts himself on a vase shard, and goes looking for first aid in the bathroom medicine cabinet. Instead, he finds Isabel’s bottle of fake virgin’s blood, and seems to know exactly what it’s for. Uh oh!

In another wing, another baby is having a fit, but this one’s actually a real baby. Belen’s Baby #1, or Alfredo Jr., is crying inconsolably, and Elisa’s nerves are frayed listening to him. She complains to Victoria. “It’s not normal for a baby to cry with that kind of desperation. When have you ever seen a woman take a siesta right after giving birth? What mother prefers to rest instead of taking their child in their arms… That baby is trying to tell us something. We just need to listen… I may lack many things, but I’m overflowing with maternal instinct.” She vows to find out what’s really going on, so she sends Victoria to Sofia’s room to snoop. Teresa catches her listening outside Sofia’s door and sends a message back to Elisa that one grandmother is more than enough, and they don’t need her to turn Jr. into another weak, mama’s boy Fredito. She goes inside, and yells at drugged and unconscious Sofia to wake up and attend to her son!

Sueño de amor #7 3/16/16

Esperanza does her best to make Pedro comfy on the floor since he seems to be passing out and cannot see. She calls for help on her cell.

At Ricardo's house in L.A. the news is that wifey Tracy is not going to let the kids go to Mexico unless it is done her way since they are all in danger because of Ricardo's job and "that maniac" that is stalking them. She brings up Rodrigo's nightmares. Turns out Rodrigo has been having nightmares and Tracy has never ever really given them much importance until now. Ricardo thinks she is bringing up the nightmares now just to blackmail him. We get to see Rodrigo's nightmare where the La Sombra comes into his room through an open window, grabs Rodrigo, covers his mouth and threatens revenge. Finally, Rodrigo gets his mouth free and yells for his dad and mom. Ricardo And Tracy rush in to comfort Rodrigo who has awakened. All Rodrigo can do is mutter "La Sombra" and cry as Ricardo calms him down and Tracy looks like she has had it. Ricardo promises that they will be catching La Sombra real soon. (Makes me wonder what the backstory is on this plot line.)

At the De la Colina house, since Viviana got the news about Pato and Luca being novios, Viviana just sort of wheezes and cannot talk to say what she wants. She finally can write on a tablet that she disagrees with it and it will be over her dead body. Ernesto is more than happy to talk up the novio relationship and rub it in Viviana's face. He tells her "over her dead body" would be perfect and a big favor to everybody.

El Hotel De Los Secretos #35: A Night For Fireworks Yes, But For Diego, No

In The Works- I'll get what I can in 2 hrs put up. --ed.

First part of who knows how many.....


As we JIP this episodio:

·        Trouble has joined his big bro’, Double, and Julio does the unexpected honors.  Julio has heeded Belen’s warning that Dona Teresa already tried killing her once tonight by locking her in to have her bleed to death; thus, he moved her into his and Andres’s room for safekeeping.  Belen has told mini-T that Andres is really the son of old, dead Romulo Alarcon and therefore they’ll be protected from harm.  No one will touch them once he’s awake and they’re married……(Well, as Viewerville knows, it won’t be for lack of somebody’s constantly tryin’!)  That’s assuming Andres does marry her in the end, ¡por supuesto!

·        The local boys who work the mines head down to do another day’s work for another day’s pay--unos cuentos centavos-- as Los Ricos enjoy Isabel Alarcon’s wedding reception and one of the major events of the year.

·        Julio is forced to endure Isa’s pointed snubs and that degenerate dog, Diego’s, slobbering over her during the reception.  (After his cruel torturing of the beleaguered, birthing Belen, I am certain he fathered not a few bastard Natzi SS officers somewhere along the line.)  Don Benjamin sees to it that Julio ministers to the recién casados whatever their need. Right now, it is serving Isabel and Diego the cake cutter.  (OMG!!!) 

·        Mr. Silver-tongued Snake implores his new bride to let them/him begin from scratch with their new lives.  They’ll forget the past mistakes.  All before this has been a rehearsal, alright?  She smiles innocently back at him.  And Julio observes as the band plays on….. Isa glances up towards the balcony and notices Julio fighting back his tears.

Sueño de Amor (SdA) #6. Tuesday March 15, 2016. Esperanza Rejects Ricardo Again, PatoLuca Are Officially Novios And Pedro Goes Blind!

Hello Patio Pals! We’ll have to make do with a discussion page until a valiant volunteer takes over this recapping spot.
 
The scene of Pato and Luca dining on the roof of a building in construction... Qué the hell was that? I watched it again tonight and I am rendered speechless. The only words going through my head in a maddening loop are: "What the fudge did I just watch?" And what does that SK plastered on Luca's Halloween costume stand for? Stupid Klutz? With the exception of this unfortunate-in-every-imaginable-sense scene, I found that this episode was pretty enjoyable. Esperanza and Ricardo have great chemistry. Kristel and Erasmo are lovely, in spite of the annoying banda song that starts blaring everytime they are together. Kristel and Pedro hanging out and talking made me hope we can see a real friendship blossom between them (telenovelas could use more platonic relationships).

Hotel de los Secretos, #34, Monday 3/14/16: Two mothers, two babies, no waiting!

Rerun: The ribbon-cutting ceremony at the hospital. Diego gives a speech: blah blah blah, reinvesting in the community that does so much for the Alarcons and the hotel, yadda yadda, he cuts the ribbon, and there's an engagement ring on the ribbon. Isabel, will you marry me?

There's a long pause as Isabel's gaze meets Julio's. For the record, I never hear her say yes, but apparently she says it. Julio finishes his letter to his mother: "I'm happy, Mom."

AUTUMN 1908

It's the night before the wedding. Mati is trying to get Isabel to cancel. (Mati, do you call this a bachelorette party?) Isabel says she'd rather work in the hospital than continue chasing a lofty dream. And having Diego as a companion is better than nothing.

And now we're at the wedding. Dr. Vicario walks Isabel up the aisle. (The church looks to be half-empty. Where is everyone?) We're spared the long ceremony; people are already throwing rice. Elisa is there. Felipe is there in his robes, making me wonder how much Teresa has been paying to keep him at the monastery.

At the reception, Teresa is beaming, wearing an amazing silver gown. Sofia frets: she's afraid people are looking at her, and will know her secret. And Alfredo's coming home soon, she says. The doctor tells her to act happy. She'll be a mother soon. Teresa offers her some soothing wine with the doctor's blessing.

Elisa is still planning to take Alfredo home when he gets out of jail. (She notices that Victoria is wearing red lipstick.)

Felipe tells Mrs. Limantur he's trying to be like St. Augustine. He's not sure if he's ready to come back to the "world" yet. She teases him, saying he should test himself with a little temptation: drink, dancing... Felipe hopefully asks one of the brothers his opinion. The brother says NO.

It's time for the champagne toast. Benjamin tells Julio that he should act in Andres' place to serve the champagne to the novios. Julio complies with great reluctance.

Pasion y Poder #104 20160314 Seriously! Everyone in the TN is Stupid!

We return to the nursery where Gina is shooting daggers at Dani.  Gina doesn't approve of how Erick gained custody of the EJ (Erick Jr.).  Erick assures his sister that Connie is fine with him ripping her heart out of her a$$ by taking her baby.  He's given Connie permission to enjoy her daily supervised visits with his mother. 

Gaby comes out of the bathroom.  No baby again.  Franco tells her that he is not in a hurry to knock her up until Eladio gives him the Gomez-Luna name.  Gaby wants to go to the gyno (geez, I got the willies just thinking about that!  I hate the gynecologist because it's just like going to the gynecologist!)  Franco says that Eladio won't give him the surname until he divorces Julia.  The thought of the divorce makes Franco frisky.  He pushes Gaby back down on the bed.

Sueño de Amor (SdA) #5. Monday March 14, 2016. Ricardo Is Moving to Mexico And The Guerreros Have New Battles to Wage.

At a glance

-- Esperanza tells Ricardo she no longer loves him.
-- Pato and Luca are so sickly sweet, my tummy hurts.
-- Ernesto can't find any information on Ricardo. 
-- Tracy offers to stay with the kids while Ricardo travels to Mexico for work. She refuses to grant Ricardo a divorce.
-- Silvana succeeds in getting Pato's scholarship revoked.
-- Ricardo applies for a job at Instituto Palacios. He needs to infiltrate the school to find La Sombra's kid.

A closer look



Ricardo is on the phone to Esperanza, talking about how much he loves her and how seeing her revived his old feelings, yada yada yada. He hopes they can pick up right where they left off. He is certain that Esperanza feels the same about him; he can’t be imagining things. Esperanza can’t contain her tears but she stays firm: She tells Ricardo that she is no longer in love with him and asks him to stop contacting her. She hangs up without raising the question that puzzled viewers for days: "Where in poo-perfect hell were you for the last 20 years?". For two decades, Ricardo didn’t use any of the means of communications known to Man to contact Esperanza. What’s up with that? Not a single letter, phone call, telegram, carrier pigeon, smoke signal or three-eyed raven! Nada! Then Mr. Hot Stuff shows up at Esperanza’s door, tells her he’s married, drops the “I love you” bomb and expects her to fall into his arms. Sorry, Ric, but “Operation Get A Load Of Me” is a resounding failure. Oh, and you’re a creep!
