El Color Dela Pasion #110 Wednesday 2/15/17 - DNA aka in Puebla as Do Not Admit anything test!
“Suddenly a thunderstorm begins to drench Marcelo who remains rooted at the grave as the storm washes over his grief” was beautifully expressive.
"Rosaura still not content with how much tea has been spilled decides to pour a bit more" and "whiney hiney" were among many favorites.
"Rest in peace Ricardo, I will miss you too". Yes. Strangely, I will too.
The walls are closing in on Rebecca. Yet, as she has eluded the fallout from her nefarious deeds and lies lo these many years, I certainly do not see her as down for the count. Her imperious countenance and ability to instantly analyze and retort and react to any situation shows no signs of abating.
I am gravely concerned for Nora. After she heard about the wedding, I thought she looked stricken and resigned. I am fearful she will try and follow through on her threat.
A bit surprised Sara confronted Alfredo. Another adroit, adept liar. Perhaps he and Rebecca do belong together.
So many revelations. Ric's being murdered to Lety, Clara and Rebecca's covert meeting to Lucia, Lucia and Marcelo's marriage to Nora. The list is endless.
Alfredo should drop everything and go to the daughter who needs him. Dani. Not that Nora doesn't but Rebecca will prop her up and keep her moving until Ric's murder blows over. If it does.
I wish I cared about Marcelo's father, but I do not. Nor do I care about Mili.
The intent detectives seem competent, now let's see if they are able to put the puzzle pieces together.
Delilah, this was an extraordinary summary. Thank you.
Speaking of God helping us, will he help remove Whinenelia from my screen?
Amen! God Daniela and plot gun had me rolling my eyes. I can't take her seriously; she's not damaged like Nora and has given no indication of being suicidal, she's just being a whiny brat. Ugh!
I'm glad Tere went to the police to report Vinicio. I hope they catch him soon and he spills the beans about everything. Ditto on Lucia catching Clara and Rebeca. Oh, it's about to go down!
Diana, I'm so bored with Marcelo's dad's mystery. It doesn't add up to anything in the mean plot and the clues have been subtle at best but I think they waited too long to reveal anything substantial so this late in the game it just seems extraneous.
Since she had no trouble giving him the hair she yanked out of Nora's poor head, I think we can be certain that Nora is indeed his kid. But he doesn't seem to want to just walk away after it's confirmed, and Rebeca is not going to accept that. Alfie better watch his back.
This gun ploy was what Mili planned with Dani. The fact that Mili would put Marcelo back into the horrible situation he faced with his brother, shows how little regard she has for him. That whole drama was not about Dani, but about Mili sinking to a new low to emotionally blackmail Marcelo.
I'm so glad Tere reported the rape to the police. I hope they also gave her info on a support group. Lucia can't be everywhere, comforting everyone. She could barely split herself between Tere and Leti, who both really needed support at the same time. Very glad that Tere also told Lucia what Rebeca said about Clara. Keep digging, Lucia.
I had forgotten about Daniela's and Milagro's "plan." Now it just makes it even more cruel. She knews he found Federico's body and still did this. Dark af.
I would be super offended if Sara confronted me & insinuated I killed Ricardo. What motive would Alfredo have to kill Ricardo? Daniela & Ricardo had already broken up and Daniela was in Mexico City. And why would Alfredo kill Ricardo over Rebeca? Does Sara know Alfie & Becs are FWB? I suspect Sara will run her mouth to the police, who will pick Alfredo up, who will tell the truth about Nora.
Brigida still doesn't comprehend how dangerous Amador is. She knows he killed Ligia but it's still not connecting that she's in danger. Amador doesn't care if she tells the police but he very much cares if she tells Rodrigo. Brigida needs to get out of the house ASAP and tell somebody about Amador.
Daniela needs to be given a read. She doesn't love Marcelo, because she never would've done what she did to Marcelo if she did love him. Marcelo is just a shiny toy she thinks she should have, that she doesn't even want, but just doesn't want Lucia to have. Daniela is still in the story because she knows the truth about Ricardo & Amador & Rebeca framing Marcelo.
I also liked your Sara Lansbury reference. I didn’t get it at first – Sara Lansbury?? -- but by the end of the paragraph, that little town in Maine came back to me. Funny!
And finally, “What I'm wondering is if she (Daniela) faked it, or is it that she's just got nothing but air between her skull and it passed right through?” Excellent, ! But tell me again – what winning traits has Milagros seen in Daniela for all this time?
And on I go.
What type of person keeps a loaded gun that has been used as a suicide weapon by his brother, that has been used to almost kill his finance and that has now been used as an almost-suicide (he believes) weapon by his ex-novia in his “nightstand” as a fond remembrance of his dad? There’s still some potential for that gun. Maybe it was used in his father’s death. Yes, I know that’s impossible but the irony would be too rich.
And no, Daniela was not in Marcelo’s nightstand, but I couldn’t figure out how to punctuate that sentence?
I’m intrigued that the twin tontos (aka Juarez and Ramos) are now pursuing a homicide investigation involving Rebeca and Amador. Actually the money transfers do look suspicious. But I’m amazed that the words la asesinaron and homicidio, are being thrown about so readily. I assume those words do not include accidental death or self-defense. The autopsy concluded that Ricardo was murdered? Based on what? He was found in a pool of blood with a shattered wine glass under and around him, some pieces of which were also covered with blood. We saw in real time Ricardo pull out the mortal sliver from his neck and the slash couldn’t have been more than a few inches wide, if that. If he was murdered in the first degree, that killer had NO PLAN with which to off the guy. There’s no huge knife slash across the front of the throat a la The Godfather, no bullet wounds, etc. What kind of killer would come in and know exactly where to precisely target Ric’s jugular vein or carotid artery? (They’re very close to each other. I looked it up.) I tell you who. A doctor. Dr. Sara should be a prime suspect in such a scenario. And she does have cause.
Despite my complaints/rants, I’m enjoying the show. It’s sailing along at a nice clip and there are some nice intersections of plots.
Finally, I admire the way you present your Milagros/Daniela theory, Vivi. Very clever. I was trying to figure out why the director gave the actress who plays Daniela the rest of the day off since the audience obviously wants to know what happened in that room.
Thanks again, Delilah. And sorry for being so long-winded.
Daniel pulled out the two parts that were my favorite of your entire recap. I read Sara Lansbury and had to read it again and said...OMG! You are right! Her accusation was way off! Call the man and then basically accuse him of murdering someone he doesn't even know? Where do they do that at?
I can't have any sympathy for Clara at all. You let your boyfriend rob the people who were good to you. Then you lie to Mag, (well she hasn't to Lucia who helped her first) who I believe was nice to you when she lived in the home, for this heffa who was never nice to you at no time at all - I understand why she is accepting the money and staying quiet, but if another tragedy falls down on you (besides having a son who needs medical help and the toll that life has taken on your youth) then I will not be sad.
Milli/Dani - Absolutely unapologetically pathetic b*tches! That birther (she doesn't deserve the title of mother) is the worst! I don't want to repeat what I already said yesterday, but DAMN! Of all the things you could come up with, you do this to your child?
Brigida - you waited too long, so you pretty much get what you asked for.
I will miss Ric causing trouble too!
Although we probably won't find out, Marcelo's comment about Federico's father got me wondering if maybe Milagros has not one but two deaths on her conscience. That one seems like a stretch though but who knows. My guess is that even though Milagros now has possession of plot gun it's likely that we will see plot gun again soon.
I was actually disappointed that the writers gave Ric such a quick send off. Although I think stripping the audio from the burial scene was poignant. It's true that not very many people knew Ric in Puebla.
I wonder if Lucia will try to talk to Clara again. She obviously wouldn't give away that she knows about Clara's meeting with Rebeca but maybe she will try and get some information out of her.
At first I was confused about the hair brushing thing but then I realized what Rebeca was doing. Smart plan. And I'm actually surprised she took care of the "issue" so quickly. Alfredo will hopefully be satisfied.
Delilah: You did a heckuva job!
Kendra: Too bad Ricardo is not around to sit back & watch the Becista's downfall, but he all but kick-started it since he KNEW all of her secrets, etc.,
Daniel: APB Alerts still on Vinicio. The bastard needs to pay for Trini's death & his violent rape of Tere.
Anon207: Did Milagros kill Cristobal ?
This darn cold I've been fighting had me down for the count after a long day in the office and never got to see this episode. Your wonderful detail though made it all so vivid I literally could see it play out in my head.
I sort of chuckled that Becs felt like she needed to yank a gob of Nora's hair out of her head for a DNA test. Doesn't take much for those nowadays. I had a feeling that Alfredo was not going to go quietly, and it is rather silly of Becs to think after laying the news on him he would take the test, get confirmation, shrug and go away quietly just because she said so. I see a revelation coming to Nora who is NOT going to be pleased she has a new daddy figure.
OMG- just make Whiney go away. She takes up space in this story we could use to focus on someone we care about...like Tere and Lalo. Right now, those two have the sweetest and most interesting love story going. heck with the rest.
Reading that paragraph on what Amador did to Brigida...honestly if that woman doesn't go get her son and then head straight to the police she is a damned fool. Her son needs to know what his father did to her. He's smart enough to start putting details together too.
At this stage, is what happened to Marcelo's father really relevant? It seems like this random sub-plot that keeps cropping up that has nothing to do with the rest of the story flow. Maybe it will connect somehow, but I agree with others I don't care otherwise.
Loved the reference to Sara "Landsbury".
Of great significance in this episode is the further evidence that Mili is not worthy of a son like Marc, or any child for that matter. To plot with Dani to use the gun that her own son used to commit suicide is abominable, unforgivable. She absolutely detests Marc that is the only explanation for her actions
Nora bad mouthing people for doing stupid things, like "killing yourself over a woman" excuse you Nora you are the queen of doing stupid things. I know most everyone feels sorry for her because Becs is the reason she is the way she is, but at one point or another she needs to realize evil is as evil does, and she is evil. Becs is evil, so they deserve each other.
As far as Whiney, I doubt she tried to kill herself she just wants people to feel sorry for her especially Marc.
Now Brigiduh, I think she will be Amador's downfall, at least I hope. It will redeem her for being complicit. Yes I agree that she kept quiet for Rod's sake, but that's no excuse...send the murderer to jail regardless. You don't keep quiet about a crime and expect things to go well. Karma will get you.
Things are absolutely looking bleek for Becs, Nora, Amador, Whinella, Mili, and I would lump swag daddy there for being complicit. Even if Nora is his daughter..you don't keep quiet about a murder, be it accidental or not. Nora did not intend to kill Ric so she may have been able to explain what happened and get less time or get off scot free because it was an accident...that train has passed however.
Again thank you Delilah
Sandie: Karma will likely get lazy Brigida sooner or later.
TF, I've had two theories about Mili and her husbands. It could be that Cristobal was going to leave her penniless and she had Ramiro come over and drug him to make it look like a heart attack, so then she was blackmailed into marrying Ramiro to keep the secret. The other is that Mili didn't really kill him, it was Ramiro who did it because he had been in love with Mili and getting Cristobal out of the way left it open for Ramiro to get Mili and all the wealth. Mili was aware of it, but Ramiro threatened to pin it all on her if she went to the police. Either way, like other's I don't really care about this story, it's gone past its shelf life as has Mili and Whinenelia.
Daniel and Anon207, I'm gad I wasn't the only one who found Sara Lansbury very impertinent in her accusation. Alfredo may know what happened and is guilty in keeping quiet, but her going after him like that was so wrong and is one of the reason why Sara has always rubbed me wrong. The woman just doesn't think before she leaps. Daniel, you are so right she has more reason to want Ricardo dead, so why isn't anyone questioning her nosy behind. Didn't he ditch her and then come back to steal her daughter's attention? Sara seems to fly under the radar for a lot of things, but she's as tied to some of these people as anyone else. The police should have questioned her regarding Alonso and now Ricardo.
Stupid women run rampant on this show because then there's Rafi who has poked at Mili about what she knows but now that it's all coming down, Rafi is suddenly clamming up. Didn't she want Marcelo to know? I can't figure Rafi out and I wish she would have just stayed out of it all from the beginning.
Then there's Brigi who keeps threatening..but you don't simply threaten a person who actually DOES! I don't think Amador particularly loves her, but I do think in his own twisted way he loves Rod. He probably would prefer to just have her shut up and let their current arrangement stand.
Kendra, I don't have sympathy for Clara either. She is as guilty as the driver of the armed robbery. She let the man in and let him rob that family and on the most tragic day. She is no better than him and all her boo hoo hoo-ing doesn't wash with me. She had plenty of time to come forward and turn him in and to tell what happened the day Adriana died. If she had, perhaps so many things that have transpired since would not have happened. Her speaking up could have changed the course of many things in my opinion.
Sandie, indeed it's all tumbling down for many of these characters. You have to give props to Rebecca though, she's quick on her feet and stays swinging with every step of karma chasing her. I have really enjoyed CM's portrayal as Rebecca Murillo.
1.) Adriana Murillo de Gaxiola
2.) Federico Fuentes
3.) Trinidad de Trevino
4.) Daddy Fuentes
5.) Daddy Escalante
6.) Daddy & Mama Murillo
7.) Ligia Cerbantes
8.) Alonso Gaxiola: Look at it this way, at least Alonso & Adriana are reunited in Heaven.
9.) Lucia's unborn baby
10.) Ricardo Marquez
Much is being made of the fact Marcelo looks just like Cristobal so I am guessing young Aida looked just like Lucia.
Speculation but I think Plot Gun will be Milagros' third and final husband.
At any rate, this Cristobal plot is going to be used to explain why Marcelo will not have any dealings with Milagros after he marries Lucia.
That was some foreshadowing last night when they lingered on the picture of Nora and Alonso. I don't think Nora is evil; Rebeca is the one who is evil. Nora does these things because that's the way she was raised to be and she doesn't know any other way to be. Unfortunately, she's also very mentally ill and that illness is being spurred on and left unchecked by her mother. I think Nora & Lucia could get along, if not be sisters/cousins pleasant with each other, if Rebeca weren't egging Nora on.
Nora is a bad person but I don't think she is evil.
Nora has the same wavy black hair Alfredo does.
If Rebeca truly cared about Nora and not herself, this murder would be a good time to check Nora into a mental hospital in an undisclosed location for an indefinite amount of time. With Nora out of the way, Rebeca could do clean up duty and make sure neither she nor Nora go to jail. And everyone knows Nora is a nut job so it wouldn't be suspicious for Nora to make a sudden exit from the scene. Check Nora in under her grandmother's name (Lucia ________) for anonymity.
But Rebeca is all about Rebeca and bad things will happen.
2) Federico's last name is Valdivia.
4) Federico's dad/Milagros' 2nd husband was named Dr. Ramiro Valdivia.
5) Cristobal Escalante
6) Daddy Murillo & Lucia __________ de Murillo (remember, Lucia was named after her grandmother)
9) Lucia was never pregnant; the doctor wanted to know why there were high levels of Abortion Juice in Lucia's bloodstream when she was never pregnant to begin with.
10) Add Mama de Suarez to the list; Daniela's mother is dead.
Can a person be arrested for a fake suicide attempt? Suicide is technically illegal in the US although it usually carries its own final penalty. However, since both Nora and now Daniela have dome it there needs to be a law...
As soon as The Whiny One called Marcelo I realized what she was up to. This was Milagros' plan.
As to why anything about Cristobal's death matters, it's all about how vile Milagros is. May she rot alone in a manicomio.
Finally, with Amador's hands squeezing her neck, it dawns on Brigida that she could be in danger. Before, I think she still felt like an insider with her husband, that they would weather the storms (murder, fraud, extortion) together. Now who will she run to for help? Her good friend Rebeca?
Glad Tere went to the police, but sadly its only her word against his. No physical evidence now. But maybe she saved the clothes she was wearing and there's something there.
Rafa is getting on my nerves. For pete sake's, tell Marcelo the truth so we can get back to the main story.
