Vino el Amor #77; Thursday February 16, 2017: Love Wins; sealed with a kiss
Wow..Dave finally stood up to Disgrace and told her off and defended Luci, Disgrace just will not give up . She is like a dog with a bone. Have you ever known someone who was that insistent?
The partay...I got a big kick out disgrace insisting that Luci take a photo of her happy family and then getting the tables turned on her. Ha. I loved that scene.
Does anyone know how many episodes are left.
It must be exhausting to play someone as bitter and joyless as Lilian. I wonder how hard it is for the actress to shake off that negativity and malice at the end of the workday.
How on earth did you manage to capture Lilian’s snarl (in one of many priceless screen shots)? Picture perfection. I laughed at her expression last night and did so again when I saw it just now – excellent.
I enjoyed many scenes from last night. The long last brewing of Luci and David’s romance. His sweet, tender attitude toward Luci and Luci’s glowing, growing smile.
I was delighted that our dear Bobby spoke up and insisted Marta and Luci join them for family pictures. Want to bet neither of the photos Graciela took come out??
I surprisingly enjoyed Tano and Fer’s kiss. I was expecting David to come thundering in and ruin the moment and was thankful that didn’t occur. Fernanda’s character seems so young that Tano’s character seems mature by comparison. Hmmm. That says something in and of itself doesn’t it.
My favorite line was Marta telling Brian “now you’re bitter just like her”. I have given up trying to figure out Brian’s character (and/or lack thereof). The “love triangle” appears to be a waste of time as Brian will obviously not get back with Marta (nor do we certainly want her to). Marta’s constant humiliation by Lilian continues to be difficult to watch.
“That old woman”. Loved that Susan referred to Graciela that way. Wouldn’t Graciela be horrified if she heard that. I’m smiling just thinking about it.
Sonia did look gorgeous.
What I did not enjoy was Erica’s inserting herself into what should have been a private Luci and Miguel conversation. I saw and felt clear parallels between Erica and Graciela last night. Susanlynn, I don’t think either will give up. Neither David nor Miguel (at least not yet) are in romantic relationships with them. Erica is treading on territory she does not “own”. She is a staunch ally and friend, for certain. But she is taking it too far. I would have been furious with her if I were Miguel…
I also had a chill when Perla told Juan about Mark. I was more surprised that Juan seemingly would throw everything away (including his revenge plans for David) to protect Perla.
Cynthia, this was fantastic. Thank you so much!
"And boo, hoo, hoo, she’s soooo hurt now!"
I'm mesmerized by Kimberly Dos Ramos and her depiction of Graciela.
Creepy kinda, Miguel listening in on David and Luciana and busting in to declare he'll take her back one day. To be fair she did freak out and argue with Erika, she offered no protest to Miguel's plan in front of David and she is impressed with his new confidence so I assume Miguel isn't delusional and knows Luciana better than she knows herself knowing she may drop David after a Miguel makeover. I'm impressed David kept his cool but it is he that may be delusional assuming she's really committed on the same level. David is way out on a limb here and Luciana on the ground with a chainsaw and an eye on Miguel.
Brian gotta lot of nerve showing up at David's house.
Sonia was almost unrecognizable as Sonia.
Maybe in his own weird way Juan does care for Perla? I don't think he can save her from Mark and it makes me sick what the monster will do.
When I see Susan and Cesar having an adult, friendly dinner conversation and the calming effect it has on her, I wonder why she thought it prudent to jump Tano's bones and run her life in a ditch. Any romance aside she wasted a lot of time.
Great recap, and the incidental show itself is getting better.
I was right about peaches and cream Erika, she is a little brat and seems to be working hard for another upgrade in title.
Case in point: As she was sparing with Luci, she just H A D to mention to Miggy that their tickets and their ROOM, singular were ready.
BTW with grownup makeup on Fer aged 10 years overnight. She's legal now, Tano, although still in the tenth grade,:-) go for it. !
I think Mark is so screwed up upstairs he is not even afraid of NoJuan. I mean neither on of these little boys are exactly Mike Tyson, but NoJuan is not as much a twerp as Mark and would mop the floor with him.
David is gradually putting his foot down, with DisGrace and NoJuan, but his movement is so slow, you need a calendar, not a stopwatch. Come on David, we are pulling for you.
Luci is pissing me off. If she cares about Miglet as a friend, AND if she has tried to be his girlfriend and will now pass, AND if he has caught the attention of someone else, BTW who I would not wish on a normal guy, but maybe OK for a sniveling guy like Miglet, then check in by text or phone once in a while, and stop picking the scab off. Sheezus Girl. Let it go, you can't keep him in reserve till Social Security.
I always look forward to your take on Miguel/Luci/David tofie and you never disappoint! You always give me food for thought.
I guess I'm old school. Watching these many years, I've been "trained" to think: galan, heroine, together. End of story. There have been one or two exceptions, especially Querida Enemiga. Interestingly enough, this starred Gabe Soto, who was dissed,dismissed and dropped (for good reason) for Jorge Arevena :)
I guess we need to wait and see.
TAno is young but a good kisser , so I guess his brief affair with Soosan had some advantages for him...And in turn for Fer.
I think Gracie's going to kill at least one more person before this is over. Either Lillian or Juan. She just seems to get unhinged when she's angry.
Miguel goes to David's vineyard... again. Get a life, fella! And that goes for Luci going to Adolfo's vineyard, too. Get a life!! And Erica - always wanting to stir the pot. She should get a life, too.
Funny how Gracie gave Fernanda a dress for the party that night. Wouldn't you think Fer would have already chosen a dress? Sorry, my beanie slipped...
How awesome was Bobby, demanding that his auntie take a picture of the family with Luciana? Hahahaha!!! I don't know if the first picture came out, but for the second one I thought the camera looked like it was pointed way too low. Nice job, disGracie!
In some states, parents can give alcohol to their minor children inside the home. But not to their kids' friends. Those kinds of parties end up on the news.
Tofie: "David is way out on a limb here and Luciana on the ground with a chainsaw and an eye on Miguel." Wow. Yes. Davtd seems to have her attention for the moment, but she's still keeping Mig on the hook. Just in case.
To tell the truth, I did not recognize Sonia without her funny hair-do and the glasses hanging around her neck. She put Lilian to shame in the beauty department (although I have to admit that Lilian's hair style was very becoming to a woman "of a certain age," tee hee.) They both outshined DisGracie and Luci.
Ok. Back to the recap.
Freaky, Long Legged Sonia. No Contest. Final Answer
Julie: You said, "In some states, parents can give alcohol to their minor children inside the home. But not to their kids' friends. Those kinds of parties end up on the news." How right you are! I don't know what states allow parents to serve alcohol to their minor children at home, I should look that up. When I was under 21, my parents used to make pina coladas, margaritas, etc...and allowed me to have a drink when I was over 18. They did not ruin me, but I know they would never serve any of my friends any alcohol, even if they were over 18.
I am really loving Sonia's character and her relationship with Leon. My bet is we will see their relationship flourish and maybe a wedding. Of course if that happens, it won't be till the end since it seems in all telenovelas all the weddings happen on the last couple shows. They are kind of mismatched and with Sonia's quirkiness, makes this very entertaining to watch.
I do think I see a glimmer of caring from Juan to Perla. Maybe he has even learned to love her. Only problem with that relationship is that it is doomed to failure because of Juan's deceit, greed, and pursuit of power (over David). If Juan weren't all caught up in revenge, he might be a better person, but he's so caught up in so much greed. Perla should dump him if she has any sense.
I am hoping we see Tano and Fer's relationship grow. I think they are really cute together, even though they come from different worlds. I like what I see from Fer when she is with Tano. She just seems like a much nicer person. I've always said that a relationship is good when the person you are with makes you want to become a better person.
As for DisGracie, I'm sure we are in to see more meltdowns from her.
Notice we don't see California on the list of various situations except for medical.
I'm loving the anatomically correct David. He should get all kinds of flashbacks to other conversations where DisGracie hypnotized him with lies while staring him down through those wide, gray eyes. He's heard all those lines before. I guess it's finally sinking in.
Fer and Tano were cute. Maybe after this first kis, and a real one at that, she will be ready to accept her Dad's relationship with Luciana.
I agree, the picture Disgracie took will be of their knees. Heffa.
So Miguel is stalking Luciana now. His persistence is beginning to look sick. Him and DisGracie with the same sick sense of entitlement. Also thought Luciana going to SB was a bit much. Do these vineyards butt up against each other. They go back and forth with the speed of thought! Same room, hunh? Now THAT"S unnecessary. Yah, Tijuana IS the new San Fransisco.
Finally, I think NoJuan does care for Perla. I think it's beyond a feeling of possession. He may have started out just using her for release but fooled around and fell in love. Throughout this whole thing, other than a glance at DisGrace weeks back, he's not messed around with any other woman. Which is more than I can say for Gut. What a stupid story line. The nerve to tell Martha she should be the Sheriff's wife. If Martha is so horrified by what he did to her family, why is she always hanging around him and Lil when she sees them with hound dog eyes spoiling for another round of abuse from Lil. Pahtetic.
Thank you again, Cynthia!
I want meet you for drinks. Are you old enough to drink? We'll get Luci to take our picture.
Seeing Tano kiss Fer, I thought "Boy, that's some pretty good acting right there, or Tano really does like her in her birthday outfit." :-)
And Thanks Again Cynthia. Without you talented recappers I would have already bailed on this Bunraku TN.
David better show us his wares tonight because pit bull DisGracie is NOT done yet!
How long are we to finale?
I want the rock upside Lisa's head "incident" to be revealed!! (Guess I'm spoiled by the wonderful and brilliant pacing of AQNMD).
OT..Lila...Season three of Outlander will not air until September. I have been reading some interesting analyses of each book online at The Scot and the Sassenach. How far are you in book 2 ? Fasten your seatbelt, you hear!
Other than that, Juan does not know for sure, and has no real proof, leaving an admission in a meltdown juan of the other few possibilities.
However. Lil has warned DisGracie that she thinks NoJuan is double-crossing them and NoJuan did mention said rock chucking incident in a recent conversation with DisGracie. I'm thinking that a showdown is coming with a shouting match between Dave, DisGrace, Juan and Lillian during which Juan will spill the frijoles. One can hope.
OT -- Just on page 104. Claire is in the early stages of her pregnancy. . . You got me skeered, Soosan-lyn! ;)
Dressed in their Sunday best, sorta.
Ol sour puss lili complaining about the party guests. She's the smelliest
Heffa in there. Gut must be desperate
To stick with her. He is such a wimp.
Crazy gracy, "I hope you will think about all that I've said". She means all that bs she just tried to shovel
Into his mouth. I wish his eyes will continue to open about the people in
His family & friend circle.
Fer got her wish. Now they better not
Let daddybear catch them.
Thanks everyone! I'm looking forward to tonight. WE are on #78 as of tonight and I believe there are 140 episodes. In Mexico, the grand finale is this Sunday, the 19th.
Thanks . I always told my engineers, that no matter how good an engineer you are, if you can not get your ideas across to normal humans, they are not that valuable. English is a means to an end for an engineer.
Marta needs at least one minor thing in a makeover and that's a better coiffure. A nice upsweep or French twist would give her a more dignified and authoritative look.
I keep looking for evidence that Gutierrez is closing his eyes and thinking of Acapulco when he's with Lillian, so if he's faking it he almost has me fooled. Still awaiting confirmation.
What I wish is that David would have declined to answer any of the Succubus' questions and tell her that this is none of her business.
As to Juan and Mark, every episode seems to demonstrate that they will eventually destroy each other. That will be satisfying.
Yes, I was a little miffed when David kept answering DisGrace's questions and allowed her to go on and on. He should have just taken control and put his foot down and said, "basta!"
Juan is more likable than Mark. I wish someone would just put Mark out of his misery.
