El Color de la Pasión, #108 (Uni/Hulu #107), 2/13/17: Congratulations! It’s Another (Crazy, Bratty) Girl!
-Nora remembers Ricardo’s insinuations about her mother.
-Sara tells Alfredo to speak to Ric if he wants to learn more about Rebeca.
-Marcelo and Lucia catch each other up on Vinicio’s and Daniela’s shenanigans.
-Nora goes to Ric’s place to find out more about her mama, and freaks out when Ric implies her mother is a murderer. She smashes the wine glass in his hand with her purse, and Ric gets a shard to the jugular. He pulls the shard from his neck and swiftly begins to bleed out. With his last bit of strength, he grabs on to Nora, leaving bloody streaks down the front of her grey silk dress, before he drops dead to the hardwood floor.
“I don’t know what happened here, but your daughter is in no condition to give a statement.” He tells Rebeca how he found Nora covered in blood at the door. “My daughter couldn’t have done this.” Well, she was the only one here, Alfie points out. He was waiting for Rebeca before calling the police. Rebeca begs him not to, then goes into the bedroom to see Nora. “I’m here my love. Everything’s going to be ok.” Nora is crying and shaking uncontrollably. Rebeca starts to walk her out of the apartment and Alfie wonders where she’s taking her? “Things don’t work this way!” Rebeca says she’ll take care of everything, and she’ll call him tomorrow. Alfie goes back into the apartment, sees Nora’s purse, and takes it with him before leaving.
Rebeca takes Nora to her (Rebeca’s) room, and tells her shell-shocked daughter that she needs to take a bath. Nora neither says anything, nor moves. Rebeca has to undress her and guide her to the shower. She continues to reassure Nora that everything will be ok, while clearly not believing it herself. She puts Nora under the water, and then leaves her daughter there to sob alone, while she gets rid of the bloody evidence.
A: And I told you that we shouldn’t hide what happened.
R: The police already know. I went to get Nora’s car…and I saw them bringing out the body.
A: What do you intend to do, Rebeca? Keep quiet?!
R: Yes! And I ask you to do exactly the same!
A: Of course not! We agreed to wait a day, and like an idiot, I agreed! But you know what? The deal is off!
R: Please, Alfredo. I beg you to support me in this.
A: I can’t, nor do I want to. I’m not inclined to become Nora’s accomplice. I don’t know what happened, but it’s obvious that Nora needs help.
R: That’s exactly what I’m doing! Helping her! I’m doing what any other mother or father would do for their daughter.
A: Yes, but Nora ISN’T my daughter! And right now, I’m going to the police…
R: Yes, she IS!
A: What are you saying?
R: You can’t turn Nora in. Because she is also YOUR DAUGHTER!
¡Feliz día del amor y la amistad! Have a great day, everyone! :)
Thanks Vivi. Wonderful recap. Had to giggle at " I really don’t think that’s what they mean by “organic.” [
Nora is unraveling, Becs is panicking and Amador needs a super strength deodorant from all the sweating. Guess we have officially turned the corner to the downfall of the bad guys.
That said, I still wouldn't put it past Becs or Amador to try and pin things on someone else. Of course Becs played the guilt card with Nora, but hopefully when she hears of Ric's demise, just MAYBE she will start putting two and two together.
In all this crazy, why we have to listen to Dani whining. C'mon. She better have some purporse besides that for the remaining episodes
I'm sure a blood spatter expert could tell someone that the stains on Nora's dress couldn't have come from her slashing her wrists. Not to mention the healed scars and the serious possibility that Slick Ric didn't have the same blood type.
And another lesson about Entitlement is taught to Nora.
Considering the circumstances under which Rebeca told Alfredo that Nora is his, should we suspect she did this in order to get him to help her help Nora escape psychiatric help? I don't think he's really Poviched until the DNA test comes back positive. I've long suspected that Nora wasn't Alonso's but Alfredo should insist on a DNA test before being coerced into taking on any responsibility for her.
Marcelo is absolutely right in reminding Lucia that Nora'a moods should not dictate her life. Meanwhile tonight we should be finding out whether Daniela is going to off herself in Marcelo's DF abode.
Vivi, you so perfectly capture the mood and the essence of every scene in mesmerizing, vivid detail. “With his last bit of strength, he grabs on to Nora, leaving bloody streaks down the front of her grey silk dress, before he drops dead to the hardwood floor” is but one example.
Rebeca stuffs Nora’s bloody silk dress in a trash bag meant for leaves in the outside bins. I really don’t think that’s what they mean by “organic” was also one of my many favorites.
“She continues to reassure Nora that everything will be ok, while clearly not believing it herself”. Rebecca is clearly scared to death. She actually looked (dare I say it?? Vulnerable). But that image vanished quickly when she returned home and spun another vicious lie about what happened.
UA, I'm no detective but I didn't think the slit wrists explanation fit with the blood stains on the dress.
In theory, Marcelo is right in that he and Lucia should proceed with their plans. Yet...I can't blame Lucia for hesitating. Nora is her sister (for all intent and purpose) and by telling her Nora slashed her wrists (again), Rebecca has laid yet another almost insurmountable guilt trip for Lucia to overcome.
I loved the freaked out, sweating Amador. All roads lead to him. The detectives have his number. He really should consider scurrying away like the rat that he is. His days of freedom are coming to an end.
Alfredo lost the lottery in terms of having sweet and loving daughters, didn't he? He is a very strong man though and if Nora survives, if anyone can help her, I would put my money on him. Dani is hopeless.
Vivi, thank you, thank you!
I love the imagery of Noras dress soaked in blood. Idk it was out of place in the Gaxiola house that it was mesmerizing and horrifying.
That poor apartement owner. Cant get any worse for your business than that.
Rebeca is for sure scared to death of what may come because this is stretxhing an already taut situation and there are way too many peiple involved already, starting with daddy dearest. By proxy Tere and Lucia and Gloria who got the suicide watch stsrted in the first place. Even marcelo. Oh boy...
Nora, Amador and Rebeca continue to unravel, with Nora losing it faster than anyone else. Rebeca telling Lucia that Nora slit her wrists because of her and Marcelo, is just so diabolical and typical of her. But we know that each time Nora has had a really major crisis, it was because of Rebeca and her dirt, just like this time. But Lucia always ends up getting blamed.
Marcelo is right that Lucia shouldn't feel guilty or let Nora's craziness affect her life. But this is coming from the man who has his own unresolved guilt about his brother's suicide-- which is what prompted him to start his whole stupid revenge plan in the first place. He can't really talk. Lucia needs to see a therapist about how to move on with her life, guilt-free, regardless of what Nora does-- even if that's a successful suicide attempt.
Mili helping Dani to plan some kind of emotional blackmail on Marcelo, just shows what a horrible mother she is. She doesn't give one bit about Marcelo's happiness and emotional well-being. No wonder Fede was such a wreck.
Sandydoc- "but now I'm starting to wonder if something more sinister is behind this, eg that in fact Lety is her half sister" Are you thinking that Ricardo was Nora's dad, and not Alfredo or Alonso? I think the timing is off. Ric was long out of town by the time Rebeca got pregnant with Nora. Although it would be very much like a Greek tragedy if Nora had killed her own father. Nora's braids, hair, and the drape of that dress is reminiscent of ancient Greece.
In terms of Nora's unraveling it may not matter. Just finding out that Alonso wasn't her father will set her off yet again. That outburst will be so intense I doubt Rebeca would tell her anything more. If Slick Rick was, yes that would be insane. However, since Nora is at least two years younger than Lucia (and I'm guessing it's more like 3 or 4) I'd say that Alfredo is the one who will be Povitched (love that one, Nandicta!) since Rick was out of their lives from the night he left town after jilting Magdalena.
I am left thinking that some while ago when Rebby said "it's her father", many of us thought she was talking about Nora. Now it remains to be seen but I think it's highly likely that Alfredo is Nora's dad. I feel sorry for Letty when she learns of her father's death.
I think the scene in which the realtor was showing the apartment to prospective renters was somewhat contrived as what company does not do a walk-through to be sure the unit is showable?
All in all, I am delighted to see that the events are making Rebecca and Amador sweat and panic. Bring it on!
I'm awaiting for Leticia to find out about Ricardo's death any moment now!
Detective Ramos, what a cutie, has a doppleganger here in northern california. Did I mention how cute he is? Like, really cute.... cupcake cute.
Thanks again Vivi!
You have a way of vividly describing a scene and it transports you back to it, I enjoyed it through and through.
I am always amazed at how Becky always has things work out for her, Lucia finds dress confronts her and she spins her web, and Lucia believes her and now feels guilty. Nora leaves purse, swag daddy finds and now brings to Becky. Never anything out of place. Always perfectly working out for her. Ric was right when he told her that things always worked out for her. Her luck should soon begin to run out, and I for one can't wait to see who is the one that pushes the first domino.
I can't wait for Mili's downfall as well, she is a demon of a mother just like Becs. Whatever she is planning with Danni is further proof that Marc means nothing to her.
Milli and Dani - In the words of Bill Maher - Whiney little bitches! OMG! Is she really telling this girl to manipulate her son? Really? As much as I couldn't stand her meddling and trying to get her son to accept Dani (I let it go because I really wish one of my sons wasn't with the crazy chick he is with - ugh! but I keep quiet) this is just disturbing. She is the worst!
Well...so Alfie is the pappy! Glad he didn't have to be subjected to that reality.
Poor Nora. I've always felt more sympathetic than anger towards her. I can only imagine what kind of horror that had to have been. Like everyone else, I figured Ric would die, but by Nora's hands? WOW!!! It was truly an accident, but damn!
I may have to watch tonight's episode in the morning, but this is surely shaping up to be an enlightening end to this crazy story.
We all know that Rebeca will do anything to protect Nora and obviously she had no other choice but to reveal the truth to Alfredo. In this case she can't afford to lie anymore. Looks like she was smart enough to admit that to herself. I agree with UA that when Nora finds out this truth she may not be able to handle it. She should be upset when she finds out about the Federico thing but this other secret of Rebeca's directly involves her. It means her whole life has been a lie.
Ricardo's death only makes me sad because of Leti. Just when she had gotten her father back, he dies. I'm sure had he lived he would have continued to better himself for Leti.
Alfredo didn't seem like he fully believed Rebeca so I bet he will still get a DNA test.
Also, did anyone else notice that when Rebeca got out of the cab when she was retrieving Nora's car, she pretended to put money in the driver's hand and he thanked her, but there was NOTHING in her hand?? WTH!! Is the director in such a hurry that he/she couldn't lend Claudia Ramirez (??) a couple $100 peso bills to give to the taxi driver. We went through the scene again to make sure we weren't being misled by our lying eyes. Nope, it was all pantomime. Talk about cheap! (I will be glad to get my lenses checked if I'm wrong on this.)
Thanks again, everyone.
The law enforcement authorities are incompetent!
UA, I am in agreement that if it slips to Nora ( I vote for the TN cliche of listening through a cracked open door) that Alfie is her true dad and not Alonso, the girl will lose any fragile amount of sanity she had left. Fault her what you will, but she loved her "father" and he was ALWAYS there for her, no matter how she perceived he favored Lucia. After he died, Nora hung her sanity on her mother being the only other person who cared and never lied to her. Well, that will go up in smoke.
Alfredo seems to me to be a smart cookie. I don't think he would take Bec's word for it about Nora. He may not be an Alonso, the hands on type dad with lots of hugs, but if Nora is his, he'll go to bat for her. Will he force the issue on Becs to get together and form a truly dysfunctional family? This all could be worth it to see Dani's head explode.
Nora is probably 2 years younger (MAX) than Lucia. Rebeca would've had to seal the deal fast to get Alonso to marry her. No way does she pose as the loving & caring sister in law for 3 years and then get Alonso to marry her. She slept with Alfredo, got pregnant, slept with Alonso and then told him she was pregnant and Alonso, racked with guilt over sleeping with his dead wife's baby sister married Rebeca in the throes of guilt and grief. No way is Nora 3 or 4 years younger than Lucia. Lucia is 24 and Nora is likely 22.
With Mario's little gun maybe shooting blanks, perhaps he can stop all the "if we don't have kids oh well we can just be like Trini & Naz" talk with Magdalena and really listen to her fears and truly be a source of comfort. Mario is freaking because he knows Magdalena will be deeply disappointed if she can never have children and that he would be the source of that disappointment. Well, that's how Magdalena is feeling...like a source of disappointment.
I also noticed that the police let her go ahead and go through that crime scene just to come on the other side of the tape and get in the car. She could have easily walked in the street. They didn't have the entire street blocked off - that would have made more sense if you needed to get through - but no! She had to go on the sidewalk to get to a car that was in the street that she just crossed? LOL! Oh well
A good one. I'm glAd that messy cat is out of the bloody garbage can. Now he
Has 2 bitchy daughters. Sucks to be U
Daddy. Now he is going to see all that
Was said to him about rebe is true.she
Has a way of sucking everybody into her cesspool of swill. And Now there he goes. Diving in. Poor poor schlub.
I hope Mario is ok in the sperm River.
And it's like the doc said, she so so
Determined she's getting in her own way. Calm down mags, it'll happen.
Sara," you'll see your father sooner than you think", yeah at his funeral.
I'm kinda sorry they killed him off cuz Like Sara said leti did bring out the good in Him. What little there was.
Still don't like dani. She's annoying.
I don't think her dad likes her either Not surprised.
Still don't like Mili. She evil. I don't think she likes marcelo cuz he is too much like his father, and his father couldn't stand her, that's why I hope he talks to aida lugo she's got some imfo.
Thanks Vivi This was good.
