Sueño de amor #118 8/31/16 " The Fight is On"

We start with more of the same old same old: Paulo is bullying Kiko in the classroom with Salma right there to add her two cents just to make it worse. (uh, where is the teacher supervision?) After one too many insults and having his cane tossed in the trash by Paulo, Kiko punches Paulo twice in the face as a friend keeps him standing. Paulo is enraged that he has been shown up by Kiko and now has a bloodied nose and mouth. Esperanza finally comes in to break it up when it looks like Paulo is going to get to punch back. She also makes the big mistake of getting in between Kiko and Paulo. (Has nobody ever taught her how to break up a fight???) Instead of stopping, Paulo yells at Esperanza not to interfere and pushes her back so hard she lands on her derrière on the floor. Some of the kids are horrified that he would touch her. She tells him he made a very serious error and that things are going to change.

Ricardo the schmuck is still at it explaining to Cristina in his unemotional, robotic, measured, without any affect kind of way that he has not chosen Esperanza. Cristina lets Ricardo have it. She completely understands his indecision and that is why she is ending it between them right now. He can stay with Esperanza. She wants him out of her life. If he is in love with two women, that means his love is divided. She wants all of it not just a part of it.

Yago #62: Trojan Trunk

Flashback: Proud papa Camilo watches a puppet show being put on by pre-teen Julia. He tells her that she is the best thing that ever happened to him. Julia thought that honor belonged to her mother. Camilo concedes that Julia is the best thing that her mother left him. Julia wonders if he doesn’t consider getting married again. Camilo remembers being jilted at the altar and the deadly consequences. He tells Julia that he doesn’t believe he’ll ever find someone else as special, lovely, and talented as her mother. Julia wants first dibs at holding his bride’s train and throwing the rice. Camilo hugs his (stolen) baby-girl.

In the present, Camilo gets himself looking spiffy for his wedding. He looks at a picture of himself and Julia and tells her that he has finally found someone he wants to marry. He’s interrupted by one of his security guys, who tells him Sara wants to see him urgently.

She wears crocodile on her feet and in her eyes

We return back to the scene when AnaLet confesses being with child during the burial of what she thought were Marcelo's remains. Marcelo calls her a liar. (Viewerville nods in agreement, either that or she’s got a case of Rosemary’s Baby). She starts whimpering on about how she was devastated and couldn’t sleep, eat, or breathe (Damn, and she still survived). He’s hesitant, but inquires if she lost it. She nods, she did everything she could to save what she had left of him, a baby born out of love (or infidelity, Viewerville yells!). He’s not sure if he believes her but she doesn’t care, she doesn’t want him to touch her or try to console her. He’s the first one to know because she never spoke of it to anyone. But since he doubts her so much, he can talk to her gyno since he should still have it on record. At this he has a flashback: 

He’s driving with Alfredo to San Nicholas to confront Soledad. They hope Ev doesn’t find out or he’d interfere with their investigation. To change the subject, Alfie asks how things are going in Marc’s matrimonio. She’s still distant and upset. Alfie remarks about a pharmacy package that Martinez intercepted of hers, it was a pregnancy test.

Sueño de amor, Ep. 117 usa/122 mex (8.30.16) -Ernesto, seguro que no quieres nada, nada, nada, nada, nada, nada? -Que no, que no Esperanza, así que déjame y vete ya!

Cristina Vélez Valderrama, the firewoman of the education and runner up in the race to wins Ricardo's heart (and rest of his body), tells her only best friend Margarita la alcahueta that the only thing she bargained for was a family and not all this tests. 

Esperanza and Ernesto are still pushing and pulling (en el estira y afloja) because he sees both his hope and Esperanza lost. Now that she is miraculously cured, Ricardo is also miraculously single and now he blames him for not having Esperanza's love all for him.
He, as mighty as he has always been, doesn't want crumbs, he wants the whole cake!!
Since reality is not what he likes, he prefers to keep Esperanza away from him. Go away, he said!
-But, but, I want to take care of you, give you everything you need except my love...
-I don't want it. Thanks.

In another part of the city, Napoleón is desperate because he doesn't want to give the money back and he doesn't have the baby either. Silvana, making fun of his fear, reassures him that she is working on it and that soon they will have the baby they so much need. 
They should talk to the guy who wants the baby and ask him if he can wait 9 more months, because in that case, Napo could make his own "sacrifice" and putting a paper bag over Silvana's head, impregnate her. Really! This is easy money, not as easy as selling sperm, but hey, they could even have a million pesos every nine months! Think about it!!

Yago Capitulo 61 August 29,2016: Unfinished sympathy

NOTE: This episode was for strange reasons only 41 minutes long. It ended with Yago&Ximena smooching. No ending soundtrack, no nada. If there were any clips missing please say so in the comments.



You're a little 60 episodes late Loony-vision!

Flashback: Omar, Lucio and Abel were having drinks in a bar. Omar is anxious that he is going to leave Sara like that but Lucio&Abel promise to watch over the little serpent. In cue Yago starts narrating that the past never really vanishes but it instead watches us over and often same people are involved.

In the present Yago accompanied by Sara&Abel reveals his true identity to Lucio. He also reminds Lucio of the fateful night in which Lucio planted Omar's fingerprints on the gun. Yago will remember that night forever and ever. Lucio is incredulous to all this doubting everything that Yago is talking about.

New Telenovela: El Color de la Pasion, September 6th Debut


Marcelo y Lucia, our pretty protagonists
(not to be confused with SantMarc y Ana Lucia from 3xAna)

Next Tuesday, September 6th, is the 2-hour debut of El Color de la Pasión (The Color of Passion) at 7:55pm EST. After sitting for two years on Univision’s shelf, it replaces Narcos, which has been recapped by Countx during its 2-week run, in the 10pm EST slot.  

So far, there seems to be lots of interest in watching this popular telenovela, and also some interest in recapping it from: Delilah, dy77, Anna Nabil, Anita, Jardinera, and Cathyx. I would also be interested in sharing a night with someone. If those listed are still interested, please email me and we can decide on a recapping schedule.

Sueño de Amor (SdA) US #116 (MEX #120, #121). Friday August 26, 2016. Señorito Confundido

Sorry, lady, but I'm too handsome to have to worry about making decisions!

At a glance

-- Ricardolt is very confundido (confused) and can’t decide between the two idiotic women that are debasing themselves to win him over. Poor perplexed little prince! How will he ever manage this stressful situation with only two neurons to rub together? 
-- The preparations for the rushed wedding of stepsiblings Pato and Luca are well underway. 
-- Ernesto preemptively ends his “relationship” with Esperanza.

A closer look 

Esperanza is visiting gravely-ill Ernesto and fawning over that drooling fool she says she is madly in love with. “A few days ago, Ricardolt hated me and now he loves me again! Well, with half his heart at least!” “That’s a big advance!, exclaims Ernesto sarcastically. He curtly tells her that he is tired and wishes to be alone, thank you very much.

Narcos Capitulo #4 August 24 2016 "Flame on"

[Some scenes were merged for easier reading]

NOTE: The next episodes will be mere discussion pages as I am worn out due to the new semester starting soon. I will recap the final episode though.

 The death of Rodrigo Lara gave Colombia a new edge of extradition support as one of the assailants confessed that Pablo put out the hit. Steve still blames himself for the death but Javier assures him that it was for the best as now they can go after these rat bastards. Pablo got indicted for Lara's death and got placed on the bounty list. Extradition could possibly make Pablo's life a living hell as U.S max prison doesn't have any privileges. Now Pablo had something to fear. Or does he? After a small fight between the Narcos Pablo proposes a new organization"The extraditables". But this time it wasn't a team effort but a man for himself. Gacha thought that he could stop the extradition by simply killing anyone who tried to stop him. The Ochoas build themselves quite a crafty logo("Better a grave in Colombia than a cell in the United States"). Carlos Lehder took it to the airwaves blaming the imperialistic America for everything. It was also the very first time judges had to wear masks during court. But not even that stopped Pablo from blowing up their cars.

Viewerville is digesting the latest luscious tidbit to have dropped from Ana Leticia's lips.  News at 10....

  • Marcelo and Ramiro are at odds because Marc played him for a fool and betrayed his promise to let Ana Laura know first that her sister, Ana Lucia, is still alive.  He's upset thinking the Ana MiMi will end up telling the family and he thinks it's best they tell the family together before A MiMi opens her maw.  Marco knows better and says the truth is too inconvenient yet for her to tell anyone.

  • Ana Lucia is still acting cold to Soledad and wants the truth if she and Mama Sole are ever to speak to one another again.  "--What's in that jewelry box of yours, Mama?  What secrets are you hiding from me?"

We need a fourth for the Mahjong tournament. You in?

At a glance 

-- Lucio frames Hernán for Selma’s murder but Katia whacks the toupeed Red Converse Killer before Camilo could get to him. It was death by fire extinguisher. 
-- Julia wants Abel to kill Camilo. 
-- The Three Compañeres (Yago, Abel and Sara) ask the fourth compañere (Lucio) to team up with them to destroy Camilo. Lucio is about to learn that Omar is still alive. 

A closer look 

Lucio is on the prowl, gun in hand. Selma is his unsuspecting prey. He ponders on the potential of love as a powerful but at times destructive weapon that can convert one into the worst version of oneself.

Sneaky's recap coming up later in the day. Until then, let's discuss - what an episode!

Sneaky's recap:

Diving straight in
Badd Ana looks like she wants to stamp and scream as Marcelo tricks Analu into kissing him again w/the promise that it will bring Santi back, but after the kiss he gloats that Santi is dead and will never come back, she helped him kill him. (yeah I know weird sentence, weird logic, weird everything) Analu sobs that she will never give up but is eventually convinced by cold as ice Marcelo that Santi is gone and he, Marcelo doesn’t want to see her ever again, as BadAna cries and screams into a towel in the bathroom and then frantically fixes her faces b/c  ‘ he can’t see her this way’

Narcos Capitulo #3 August 24 2016: Dreams come to an end

"This ain't gonna hurt a bit!"

[Some scenes were merged for easier reading]
In the last episode we have witnessed some cruel and unkind deaths. One of them was Connie's adored cat. Javier starts drilling Steve with questions. Did you have any contact outside of DEA? Do you have any affairs? After a short thought Steve remembers his sticky situation at the local airport. He had his passport scanned and sent directly to the bandits. Javier also points out that the cat is D.E.A property so there will be justice for the cat. (This is due to Kiki Cartagena, a D.E.A agent that was brutally tortured during his mission in Mexico]. Javier&Steve also meet Suarez. He is a local cop that plays both sides that only works for money so he get's bribed. The DEA later catches up to the two airport bandits. Royal karma ensues. Killing a D.E.A cat is a federal crime. One of the bandits spills up the identity of the cat killer: Poison.

Yago #59, Wednesday August 24, 2016: Party-Poopers

I hope you enjoyed the title, because that's where the fun ends.
(Official episode title: "Deadly Attack." That's not fun at all!)

- Fidel and Selma prepare to say goodbye to their home and friends by planning a going-away party.

- Lucio and Camilo set Sara up with a wedding planner to keep her distracted while they plan their totally nonviolent, lightning-fast, surgical strike on Fidel's place to get Julia.

- Julia tries to get Ximena to attend Fidel's going-away party. She is unsuccessful, but a follow-up visit from Yago changes Ximena's mind.

- Katia is allowed to make a supervised phone call to warn about an attack, but no one picks up the phone.

- At the party, Abel asks Julia to marry him, and she accepts.

- The nonviolent, lightning-fast, surgical strike on Fidel's place is a totally sloppy bloodbath from the get-go. It takes forever, and Selma is killed.

- Fidel finds Camilo crying over Selma's body. They struggle, and Camilo shoots Fidel. Julia sees her dead parents and is grabbed by Hernan.

Tres Veces Ana # 82 - Finally face-to-face with the three faced woman and a man with no face

Our ever scheming Ana Le figures it’s not very convenient for Santicelo in either of his incarnations to meet with Ev, especially in light of all this info she recently received on Ev’ involvement in all of her beeswax, so she asks Abue to exclude her marido from this conversation. Abue could go either way, as she reasons perhaps it could jolt Marcelo’s memory and suddenly Santicelo appears from behind in his Marcelo updo. He heard Ev’s name being mentioned and Erni is pleasantly surprised he remembers Ev. Marcelo says it’s a great idea to invite Ev and incidentally he is remembering a lot of things, like the fact that he found out Ana Lu was alive and to stop him from delivering that news, someone orchestrated this accident. When he finds out the culprit, he will have no mercy on them. (Incidentally, he is speaking to Erni with a familiar ‘tu’). Ana Le looks like she wishes she had a strong drink nearby or someone to push off the building to calm her nerves.

Sueño de amor #114 Wed. 8/24/16 "Ricardo Shows He is Just a Schmuck in More Ways Than One"

So, we will start with where we ended: Esperanza finally being forgiven by Ricardo the schmuck. He finally asks how her health is. She is in remission but not "free" yet: she still has some chemotherapy and viral therapy to complete. Ernesto and Pedro were the ones who researched the viral therapy. The doctors have no idea how she is in remission. Eventhough Ricardo the schmuck knows he has no right to ask, he does anyway: is she still planning on marrying Ernesto?

At the hospital, Cristina is still crying and talking with Margarita in the cafeteria. The upsetting topic is what Esperanza did to protect Ricardo and now he protected her from the bullet. The meaning from that is that either one was willing to sacrifice their life for the other. Margarita admits that is a huge kind of love to have. Cristina wonders how she can compete with that.

Esperanza fills in Ricardo about Ernesto's 20% operational kidney and how they have not talked about getting married since they called the priest to her death bed. He needs a transplant soon or he might die. Ricardo the schmuck asks her if she loves Ernesto. That does not sit well with Esperanza. If Ricardo is so sure about his marrying Cristina, why is he asking another woman about her marriage plans? Ricardo the schmuck apologizes saying he should not have gone there; it is just that he never understood the whole Ernesto thing. How she could kick him out of her life but forgive a man she hated? Ricardo the schmuck only had her come to tell her he owes his life to her and he thanks her. Esperanza tells him he owes her nothing and thanks him again for forgiving her but adds that she should not be there. Cristina his future wife should be there and she leaves.

Narcos Capitulo #2, August 23, 2016 : Violence galore

[Some scenes may get merged]

Steve&Connie have just got on a flight for Columbia. On their way there they notice the Bahamas. It's quite an adoring window site (I especially like the filming and locations in this show. They feel very fresh.) . When the couple arrived to Columbia they ran into a lot of issues as they lacked the papers for a cat. The flight assistant was obviously bought. He called in for his boss and the scheme was on. They waited hours and hours until the boss let them through but that didn't come without a price. He scanned Steve's documents and sent them to Poison.

Yago #58: White Lies and Truth Serum

As she’s being kidnapped by Hernan, bound and gagged and stuffed in the trunk of his car, Selma recalls how her relationship with Fidel began. She was Camilo’s girlfriend, but she was in love with his married BFF Fidel and was fighting the mutual attraction. She tells us that she knew choosing Fidel over Camilo would have consequences, but she preferred to die at Fidel’s side than to live at Camilo’s.

At Casa Guerrero, Yomar and the family fret about why Camilo is targeting them (taking away Jonas’ recent furniture contract) and if he knows Yago is Omar. Yomar thinks this could be the case, and everyone panics. He then admits to them that Sara knows his real identity, which sends them into a tizzy, as they are sure she betrayed him and told Camilo. Yomar doesn’t think so, and Sara comes over and pleads her case. She swears she will never betray Yomar again like she did in the past. She doesn’t think that Camilo knows Yomar’s real identity, because surely he would have already done something more serious to them...

Sueño de Amor (SdA) US #113 (MEX #114, #115). Tuesday August 23, 2016. Darn You, Kracy, You Had One Job!

I'm a rational being, get me out of here!
At a glance

-- He lives! That rascal!
-- It appears that the geniuses at Looneyvision got scissor-happy again and are doing some creative editing to this creative show. They smushed two episodes together, #114 and #115 as per the Mexican broadcast. Recapper Jarifa has kindly contributed a summary for Episode #115, added at the end.

A closer look

In our wearisome and most loathed Sueñolandia, a severe case of nuptialsus interruptus is underway. We now know why Cristina Vélez Valderrama (CVV) chose an all-white color palette for her wedding: Camouflage. This is the only way we can explain why trigger-happy Kracy missed her shot at such a short distance and ended up getting Ricardolt in the shoulder instead of right between the eyes. Esperanza using her one-true-love as a human shield didn’t help either. It also seemed as if Tricky Ricky deliberately chose to shield Esperanza with his body instead of protecting his stunning bride; partly out of love and partly because he needed more cushion for the fall.

We are shown a glimpse of Colombia in the past and it's magical realism.The narrator begins: "Nowadays the U.S government can spy on everyone they want. You come near a computer or a a cellphone, you're doomed. But back in Colombia 1989 there was no Internet , no GPS. Only the rich could afford the seemingly untraceable satellites phones like landowners, politicians but especially the Narcos."

It's difficult to pick between your future spouse or your sickly sister. She should have picked both! Right when Sara wanted to exit Damian grabbed her, forbidding her to leave. The snake eyed Damian reminds her that all fingers point at her. The court needs a guilty person and that can't be Sara right? The whole charade is later revealed to be Camilo's plan to marry Sara.

Tres Veces Ana - #80 - Next time please serve Valium at your party!



We start this perfect length episode (with an added bonus of no repeat scenes!) with Ana Le rudely inquiring if stunned Sole is mute or deaf, or neither, in which case would she please answer her question on Viridiana’s whereabouts. Sole manages to mumble something on Viri being right back. Ana Le wants to know Sole’s position here – it is seamstress. Yes, that is obvious, contemptuously spits out Ana Le. Sole is offered sweet relief from this most unexpected company when Viri comes out, and Ana Le runs out to congratulate her. Sole scurries away to worry in the backroom in front of Ceci. She is trembling and in a whiny voice proclaims that she has a bad feeling, and wants to go home to her daughter.


With Sole out of their earshot, Ana Le wants to know if this seamstress is any good, and if she is, Viri must send her along with the dress to make it fit just right, since all that money was paid by Tio to make Ana Le happy. (I would probably not be remiss in my estimation that the entire viewership of this TN would like to offer a suggestion to take a pair of scissors to this dress to make it really stand out…or stand down.) Viridiana calls Ana Le out on making TioM spend so much money on this dress. Ana Le uses this opportunity to bring up Claudia, who was bidding against them, and since TioM had a past with her, he was trying to outbid. Viri somehow looks like she has Ana Le’s number.

Sueño de amor, Ep. 112 (8.22.16) Esperanza suffers Aquimichú syndrome: One step forward, two steps back

We start this episode with Ricardo telling Cristina Vélez Valderrama, the firewoman of the education, the reasons why he left Esperanza 21 years ago. We will never have the whole story, because he partially reveals that he did it because of his father, who died anyway, so his effort was in vain. Poor Ricardo.

Then, like in the truth or dare game, CVV reveals that her mother is alive and kicking in USA. We all know her father died of lung cancer. Why is her mother not coming to the wedding, is she illegal also and can not leave the county? Poor Cristinita.

In the Guerrero's household, Esperanza and her daughter discuss Ernesto's kidney's problems. Since he is reluctant to accept the girl's organ, Patricia has an idea to make him take it. Looks like these women like to decide what is best for everybody else except themselves.
Your father is a saint, says Espy, he prefers to die before taking your kidney.
He is so noble, right?
-But mapa, I am ready to donate my kidney for love. Love is everything!
-Well, and if you're right and love is everything, why is he rejecting me? You know that I can not leave him, after all he did for me. 
-This is the same you did to Ricardo, remember? It's called karma, viatch!
-And I can not keep insisting with Ricardo either. I need to get away from them.

Tres Veces Ana #78/79: Altered Egos OR Facing The Hiss Pitting Image




  While Iñaki and Santiago get good and snakkered (I love this Norwegian-based term, snakker=talking/speaking) on two bottles of a most expensive brand of tequila, discussing the vices and virtues of Ana Leticia versus Ana Lucia, Ana MiMi has a major meltdown over her missing Marcelo whom she believes must be in his mistress’s arms.  Ana Not-So-Lucky, meanwhile, is examining SanMarco’s wedding ring and musing the meaning of the inscription: Ana Leticia.  “--Must be his wife’s name.”  (Ding-ding-ding!!!) And, Orlando, as usual, is sticking his obnoxious and greasy oar in where it is not wanted.
 
  Orly begins bugging NSLucky about the wife and unskillfully points out how perfect people at Danzaire think they are as a couple.  That’s only for the particular performance.  He doesn’t get it.  “—Not all taxis that pass by are free.  His has a passenger in it already.”  (Apt yeah but he doesn’t stop there.)  He inserts himself as the best alternative to Mr. Alter-Ego.  (As Hubby always tells me, even the ugliest man thinks himself an alpha-male, totally irresistible if only the woman involved would remove her blinders.  –In his case, I’d rather keep them on.) The only thing of interest for Ana NSL is that he mentions he knows who Ana Leticia is-and Orly plays his hand pitifully, if not pitiably.
 
  Yaki and SanMarco discuss Ana NSL taking his ring from him and putting him in Dutch with her sister for “losing” it.  He cannot go home now.  Listen to me, says Yaki, I don’t sermonize like Ramiro, but I give you decent advice.  SanMarco wants to follow it and grab Ana Lucia and just go to places unknown for the rest of their lives, he says, but he’s got nothing to offer her.  Besides, they’d be fugitives for life, especially as there’s still somebody out there looking for him.  Not a life she deserves, ya know?  Marcelo needs his revenge, though, and is who shows up when he's in need of an answer.  Darn it all.....

Sueno de amor, #101, Friday All talk and no play

For those of you who thought that this was going to be an action packed episode, there is nothing for you to see here. But for those who hoped they would be subjected to another never ending episode with people having the same conversations over and over again, then you are in the right spot.
Get a chair, make yourself comfortable and let the talking begin.
(scene have been combined, for better flow)

The hors d'oeuvre are so tasty, but who cares about them?

We open the episode on Cristina and Ricardo fighting over the other woman the walking dead the wedding menu. She can see that he's showing to much "hate" for it not to be hiding some leftover feelings of love. So, are they going to get married or not? Ricardo denies everything, he's even upset that she would doubt him after all that he has done to show him his love for her.
The wedding planner drops by in between their fighting, and even whispers at one moment that there might not be a wedding because of all this mess. Cristina doesn't appreciate the interruption, but her mind is set on figuring out what's going on in Ricardo's head. She finds it hard to believe that he would remain indifferent to Esperanza's love. She asks him to look her straight in the eye and promise that he wants to marry her because of love, and not because he committed to it and he promised to the kids.
He swears he loves her and only her. She cries from relief and they kiss, but I'm still having a bad feeling about this. He's very believable and I'm sure that he truly believes what he's saying, but the Patio knows better.

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 26 (Aug 15, 2016) 2d Half

Luis has Pedrito in his clutches and is now going after Fernanda. He’s planning to travel under false passports with the baby’s name changed to Luis and his daughter as Luisa.  (Is there an egotist in the house?) Fernanda is not going to go willingly, just because he’s her bio-dad.

The only way she'd ever go with him will be for Luis to threaten her with never seeing her son again. (It’s not speculation, it’s a Sherlockian deduction—thanks, David.) What an agonizing decision for a young mother to make—leave the whole family she’s grown so close to and supports her, the love of her life, a bright future (in charitable works, not artistic excellence) in order to be reunited with her son and have to live with someone she's hated (although she was making inroads in her own mind to forgive him—but not necessarily love him) in a country and culture far away from where she belongs. Ay de mi. What a dilemma for us to have to watch in the last week of our travels on the Camino as it brings us nearer the Boda at the End of the Road.

New Telenovelas/Series Coming to Univision- Aug/Sept 2016

Hola Amigos!

Here’s an update on some changes coming in the next few weeks to Univision’s lineup, if you haven’t already seen the ads. Three new shows are coming our way. Two of them are not so new, as one is a popular telenovela that aired in Mexico in 2014, and the other already aired as a Netflix series last year. Keep in mind that Univision has been known to change its mind often, and last minute. No word yet on if Uni still plans to split Tres Veces Ana into 2 seasons (temporadas), but it seems they don't. If you would like to recap any of these new shows, please let Blog Mom/Jane/Melinama know.  Let’s go in order of Univision start dates…

Sueño de amor, Ep. 110 (8.18.16) If you love him set him free, if he doesn't come back, GO GET HIM!!

A quien le dan pan que llore!
We start this episode with Cristina Vélez Valderrama and Espy talking about Ricardo. What else?
Since CVV thinks she still loves him, she needs to know the ground she is on. 
Esperanza, a known flipflopper, replies this time that despite still loving him too, she is no longer interested in him. My word is my bond and I am now with Erny.
She should put that in writing, sign it, and seal it with a Notary Public, because we know how often she makes bad decisions and then she reverses everything always for her convenience.
The card on Espy's sleeve is that argument that even when she no longer wants Ricardo, "she is not responsible of what he feels" meaning, I don't want it, but if he comes to me I will take it! After all, 20 years are 20 years!
Let's synchronize our feelings, I love him and you don't, ok?
OK, you are sure. Yes.
Is that your final answer? Yes.
You will not think you are dying again and change your mind AGAIN. Yes, I mean no.

Yago #55, Wednesday August 17, 2016: All You Need Is Love

Flashback: Sara remembers going to dinner at the Guerrero home to meet Omar's parents. She is nervous. So is he - she's the first girlfriend he's ever brought home to his parents. Sara tells us to treasure the good times.

Sara's nostalgic reverie ends when she sees Ximena sitting in her old spot at Yomar's side. She coolly announces that she's just here to drop Mati off, and then she leaves. No one attempts to introduce the two women to one another.

Sara thinks back to all the times she's had sex with Yago - on the sofa, on the table, in the car... she woefully tells us that at one time she thought she had found love and a true family. But everything can change in an instant. Boo hoo.

At dinner, Mati says he and his mother visited Ambar's grave. He apologizes for yelling at Yago for killing Mati's aunt; Mati knows now that that wasn't true. Yago asks if they can be friends, but Mati says that his parents are divorced because of Yago. Poor Ximena tries to steer the conversation back to dinner-related stuff.

Tres Veces Ana - #74 and 75 - Cheaters, zombies and murderers - Tarantino has nothing on Televisa!


Skipping over the substantial repeat we had from yesterday (Facundo planning to get his paws into Ernestina inheritance via Leonor, the confirmation of the latter’s relationship to Ernie, and Facundo’s performance at the hostel informing everyone his dear sonny will not be gracing them with his presence ever again!)

Part I 

Ana Lu, who ran away in tears from this spectacle, is in her room demanding Soledad gives her an answer on why Facundo was singling her out as the one who knew all along this will end in tears for Ana Lu. Soledad doesn’t have a good answer. She responds with pointing out that Facundo is an arrogant person, who looks down on everybody and will say what he needs to. He is capable of anything to keep his son away from them. Who knows if Ana Lu is satisfied with this flimsy explanation, but she is fed a sleeping pill to help her rest and told by Sole that all things happen for a reason and all will work out fine.

Sueño de amor #109 Wed. 8/17/16 Cristina of the X-Ray Vision or a Liar by Any Other Name: Esperanza? Ricardo?

Still outside of the church, Esperanza becomes aware of Ernesto's kidney problem and confronts him about it. He says it does not matter; because her well being is all that matters to him. She is worried that he put himself out too much for her day and night. She insists it is her turn to support him. She will be with him and do whatever is necessary. He did not do all that he did so that she would do something for him. He did it for love and totally selfish reasons: he wants to be with her. No discussion for her: she will be with him and as they overcame the cancer they will overcome his illnes. Ernesto, who has not stopped smiling throughout this whole exchange, thanks her and asks if he can give her a kiss. They kiss right on the lips. (The scene would have been much better if Pato, Pedro and Luca were not like a Greek chorus of grinning goons in the background.)

Anastasia is at the Gallo house talking to Erasmo who is holding Luquita. She is all excited about the prospects of working at the Instituto Palacios even though she will have to leave Luquita in a nursery for half the day. Erasmo is happy because it would free up their afternoons to see each other. She should go to the interview and see if the job is something she would like. Anastasia thinks about how she was so hard on Luca's secretaries and now how she might be a secretary just like them.

Yago #54: Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

Hola Yago Patio! This episode made me burn with rage at Lucio. I didn’t know I could hate him more than I did after he aided Ambar’s murder, but that was just a preview to the hate I feel for him now. -Vivi  

Flashback: Katia flashes back to a time many years ago when she was in search of a new, intense high. She had been sent by her usual dealer to a flop house, where dozens of addled-brained drug addicts roamed the halls and filthy rooms. The proprietress of this fine establishment is happy to get a new victim, and instead of giving Katia the cocaine she requests and pays for, she injects a very nervous Katia with her first ever hit of heroine. A new addiction is born. Katia’s voiceover tells us that what drove her to addiction was her compelling need to turn over the reins of her life to someone or something else. “The most dangerous thing about Hell, is that it’s a thousand times more tempting than Heaven.”

Color Guide:
*Rehash in Red
*Recall in Blue
*Reader Reactions in Green

RehashMarcelo is arguing with Evaristo about the contents of the security box. Marc wants to thank the secret squirrel that helped Alfredo. Santiago will just be a memory, and he'll go after everyone including Solebad. Ev threatens him if he does, but Marc is over this convo and boops Ev on the head, who is strategically placed in front of the bed so he can ballerina twirl before knocking out. Marc searches for the key, but an Ev seedling comes in. Marc ambushes him with orders to take him to his bromantic friend, Ramiro. Ramiro is tied up and gagged, just the way we like him. The grandthugs (gracias Ria!) are taunting him with a gun and waiting for Ev's orders. Llora sobs in her room.


Sleeping Beauty awaits Prince Charming

Recap: AnaLu sits with Nerina to apologize for getting them both in trouble. Nerina tells a despondent AnaLu not to worry, she can come to her for any help anytime. She went to the hospital that morning but didn't get a chance to see Santi. She asked her if she thinks they'll have a party ready by tomorrow. Our Ana Luchador is thrilled hearing this, this means he's gotten better and she'll see him soon!

Sueño de Amor (SdA) #108. Tuesday August 16, 2016. Loves That Heal And Loves That Sicken

Esperanza is stuck on Ricardolt and Ernesto is stuck with a defective Lukidney! Los shippeo y los shippeo, I ship them and I ship them, but their love story will never blossom because Osorio is determined to kill one of them and make the other terminally stoopid!

Hello Patio Pals! I’m away on holiday until August 22. Mini-recaps for Monday and Tuesday are scheduled to post the next day at 6 am EDT. Be well and see you next week, Sueñolandia dwellers! 

Yay! Dr. Cutie Pie is back! In all his years of practicing medicine, Dr. Medrano says he has never seen a case like Esperanza's (because they don’t exist) and he can only classify it as a “miracle” (the correct scientific term being “writer’s whim”).

Yago #53 Is it a True Truce?

Flashback: Camilo hears a gunshot, runs upstairs and there is Julia, age 3 or so, standing next to a gun she fired on the floor. A worried Camilo hugs her and tells her that he’s going to be more vigilant and watch her more closely.  Julia’s voiceover says that unconditional love makes one feel secure and protected. She never thought that that promise of keeping a loved one safe would be so difficult to fulfill. That one day she would have to defend that love from true bullets.

Present day: Julia arrives to save her kidnapper.( I think it odd that they would plot to just kill Camilo outright like this, they’ve had plenty of opportunity in the past to kill him)
Teo grabs her then lets her go, then Yago grabs her, but Teo announces that she’s pregnant, and to be easy with her. Teo won’t be happy until he tells everyone about the pregnancy. I’m trying to keep this recap short. So, needless to say, she foils the plot to kill Camilo. And in the process, Katia tells the entire group that Julia is pregnant.

Sueño de Amor (SdA) #107. Monday August 15, 2016. Now That Esperanza Has Miraculously Returned From The Dead, Let’s Kill Off Ernesto!

Aren't you glad you picked this light fun comedy to follow?

Hello Patio Pals! I’m away on holiday until August 22. Mini-recaps for Monday and Tuesday are scheduled to post the next day at 6 am EDT. Be well and see you next week, Sueñolandia dwellers! 

Pedro, Pato and Ernesto are wailing next to Esperanza’s frail and, by the looks of it, lifeless body. Luca is tearing up nearby. Anya is standing awkwardly in the middle of the brouhaha, no doubt feeling like she is intruding on a private moment and, quite probably, beating herself up for not leaving Casa Guerrero earlier. The efficient priest just goes about his business as if nothing and gives Esperanza the last rites. Maybe he needs to be somewhere in a hurry.

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 26 (Aug 15, 2016) 1st Half

In a short refrito, the unfried Luis Montero is seen escaping up the stairs of the prison so he can be with his daughter and grandson. [Lots of luck, Luis—I hope you trip and fall and no one can put you back together again.]

Carlos is fixing a meal in the cabaña for his little family. Marissa and Iggy interrupt and Mar asks Paco to take Pedrito out to play. Then she tells Fer about the fire at the prison and that Luis was roasted to death in the kitchen. Fernanda has a look of disbelief on her face.

Fer calls Amelia to tell her Luis is dead. It’s hard for her to believe, but it’s true. While she’s on the phone, Carlos, Marissa and Ignacio talk about Luis. Carlos loathed him, but wouldn’t wish such a horrible death on anyone. Fer finishes her conversation and tells the group Amelia isn’t going to cut short her honeymoon.

Iggy wants to ask Fer if she knows of any relatives Luis might gave. The three of them knew him best, but they are also the ones Luis hurt the most. He’s asking because if no relation claims the body, he’ll be buried in a common grave without a marker. Fer says, then, they need to do that. Marissa gently tells her if that’s what she wants, Fer will have to acknowledge she’s Luis’ daughter.

Fer goes outside to clear her head. All the awful confrontations she had with Luis get rewound and reviewed. Carlos comes out to comfort her. She tells him about all the times Luis asked for her forgiveness and a little affection and now it’s too late. Carlos reminds her Luis only caused them all harm and she shouldn’t feel guilty about not responding to his petitions for forgiveness.

Fer and her big heart realize he was a human capable of remorse and changing, but she wasn’t ready to forgive him and now he’ll never know. She feels terrible. Carlos holds her tightly.

Tres Veces Ana - #70 and 71 - All roads lead to Evaristo!



Happy Monday and happy last week of two hour episodes (…we think anyway)!! This was a very action-packed episode, so get ready!

We return to Santi’s hospital room, where he and Facundo are arguing over what sort of terrible people Santi has made acquaintance with in those dark,, dark days when Facundo didn’t know Santi was alive (you know, when Santi was allowed to grow an unkempt beard and live like a hermit in a cave that didn’t even look like it had running water. Oh wait, that was Facundo, not Santi! But anyway, we are sure those places Facundo is referring to are much, much worse and have roaches to boot.) Santi wouldn’t hear any of it. And by the by, while they are on the topic, he needs to warn Facundo to leave his madrina alone – he knows that he treated Rem very badly. The whole scene from Friday is repeated, as is the one with Rem and Sole with their musings on life and the mysterious and powerful force of protection love has.
