Sorry this is a little late, but it takes me about two hours to type this after having to take handwritten notes due to playback issues. However, there's nothing like some Handel to help that process! Enjoy this exciting episode.

investigated it from a different precinct. He kissed her, saying “Te

texted Irene It's urgent that we talk. The Victor situation has
gone badly. Irene looked at her cell while the inspectors talked
to Miriam. She was shocked. She looked over her shoulder and texted

agents at Farmateca. I'll call you when I can.

Ramirez cuffed Victor and held him back with a hand on one shoulder
so Rico could finish reading him his rights.
FDA agents were favorably impressed, praising what they saw in the
laboratories. Both Irene and Miriam were pleased. Miriam talked
about clearance for international markets and one of the agents
commented that Dietrix would be a big success. Irene said they
should open a bottle of champagne. She kept smiling as she texted
Borgetti. Bruno, tell me what happened.
texted Vanessa, who had not come for their date. She went to
Jackie's house, upset at how things had gone with Julio. Katia was
at the beach house, helping her with the sale. Vanessa couldn't
leave until everything was ready and the papers signed. She asked
whether Bernal could help them and Jackie said no; this was too
dangerous. At least Diego was safe. However, now the police knew
they had planted the bomb, but how did they know? If Julio had told
Borgetti, did he believe him? In all this Vanessa had forgotten
about Arturo and the job she was prepared to abandon.

explained to Julio that she had suffered a heart attack. She was to

tried convincing the doctor he would take good care of his mother but
the doctor told him he would be assuming this responsibility at his
own risk. Isabella tried to convince Julio to go on ahead. She
wanted to go home rather than stay in the hospital. She apologized
for holding him back.

tone “Why did you try to kill Jacqueline Acosta?”

texted her husband to be home soon for dinner. They were going to
celebrate the Dietrix coup and she would have his favorite steak and
red wine. He read the message and replied that he had a bad day the
day before and a lot of work at the station. You don't know how
much I want to be with you and how you can make me forget everything.
Finally he said he would see her that night.

bothered him the day before: “If you don't want to be denounced I
demand that you leave me and my family alone. Both of us have a lot

spoke with the computer expert who showed her a new video camera with
greater capacity. She handed him the laptop and said she needed all
the files copied. Everything that was on it. He said this would
take a maximum of two hours and got started on it.
and Katia were having a picnic in the park. She described the yacht
explosion. He found the case curious, saying he had seen Julio on
television. Katia said that Julio was quite fortunate.
Ramirez, and Kuri were at the station. The case of the murdered
prostitute was not solved and there were no easy clues. Rico said
that Bernal looked like the prime suspect but Kuri said that Bernal
was a cop and uncorruptable. However, his relationship with Jackie
Acosta was curious. She asked about the alleged illegal lab in the
abandoned house but that was a false alarm. There was an interesting
coincidence regarding the yacht explosion and the murder. She got up
and saw Borgetti arriving. She told him about the call from the
governor and his request for a new investigation. He said he would
expedite sending the reports. He sensed she was onto him.
they picnicked on the grass Katia told Sandro that her mother died
when she was born and her father sent her to a boarding school as
soon as he could. He had paid for her education but that was also to
keep her outside his life. He died when she was eighteen and she had
mostly felt alone, also thanks to Nicolás' depression. Sandro
started telling her a similar story. He went to live with another
family after his parents died. There was a son who was like a
brother to him but he died in an accident. They got up and he handed
the picnic things to their driver. They were on their way.
told Eddy that her phone had not been charged. Arturo came over
saying he was worried because she had not come that day. She had him
sit down before telling him that Julio had taken Diego. He asked
whether this was against her will because then Julio would have
broken the law. She told him no; she had allowed it for Diego's
good. She also thought about going away to rid herself of memories.
wanted to help her, but she told him that her son was better off as
far as possible from Encino Blanco.
Diego, and Isabella were at her house. She took to her bed while
Julio talked to the EMTs. After they left and Julio put Diego to bed
Isabella told him she felt better. However, she was worried about
their safety. He was hoping she could get better enough to travel
was in the commissioner's office where the man told him he was
recommending that he not be rehired in the force. This was about his
problems with authority. Bernal admitted to having unorthodox
methods but that had nothing to do with his investigative skills.
The commissioner recommended that he become a private investigator as
his decision was irrevocable.
called him as soon as he arrived home. When he told her what
happened she realized his ego had taken a major blow. She told him
she loved him.
heard her side of this and was shocked. Jackie said she'd prefer he
not return to the force. His hours there were difficult, among other
things. Also, it could present a problem if they wanted to leave the
country. That surprised José who wondered what that would do to
their business plans. She told him not to worry about it for now.
and Natalia were in the bar looking at the plans for the restaurant
and Jimena was surprised that Natalia had already been to José's
place. Natalia sensed that Jimena also had eyes on José but Jimena
denied it. He was cute but that's all. All she cared about was him
doing his job. Natalia told Jimena that it was time she had a man
because she was too wrapped up in getting revenge on Katia over
Nicolás. Jimena got bitchy about that. Natalia told her “Okay, I
won't give you any more advice. But I did it because I care about
you and want you to be happy.” She walked out and left Jimena to
stew in that.
and Sandro went to her new place, which was decked out in candles,
wine, and fruit. That led exactly to what it was set up for.
spoke to Tomas, who was at his computer. He refused to make delivery
on her demand, insisting she meet him on his turf or there would be
no deal. She said, “Very well” and asked where he was. He told
her. She then called Borgetti's precinct from a pay phone and
disguised her voice to make an anonymous accusation. She accused him
of being responsible for the dead bodies that had recently turned up.
was on the other end of the line. She motioned for Rico and Ramirez
to come to her desk. She asked questions and Irene pretended to be
Tomas' girlfriend. He had wanted her to leave the country with him
but her conscience wouldn't allow her to in view of the things he had
done. She told Kuri where he was before she hung up. Kuri looked at
Rico who shook his head, indicating that he hadn't had adequate time
to trace the call.
tore down the photos on his wall and downed several shots of tequila.
told Rico and Ramirez that this would require precision. Kuri called
him to the phone for Commandante Ogarte, who told him that they had
information on Tomas' comings and goings and his involvement in human
trafficking. Borgetti thanked him, saying he would keep him
informed. He hung up and told his men he wanted this man taken
alive. Kuri asked to accompany them but he refused.
soon as they left the precinct Kuri called Bernal. He did not
did answer the door and let Jackie in. He was not in the mood to see
anyone, even her. She realized he had been drinking. He wanted to
be alone and said so so angrily that she left, saying he could call
her when he was ready. He was upset with himself at this.
drove the police van with Rico riding shotgun at the head of the SWAT
team convoy. Tomas had just purchased a plane ticket online. He got
up to leave when Borgetti pounded on the door. He escaped out the
window just before the door was forced open by Borgetti and Rico.
Borgetti fired once out the window, which caught the attention of the
rest of the team. Rico went out the window in pursuit. Borgetti
found Tomas' cell phone on the desk and pocketed it. Tomas climbed
into another window of the hotel and ran out through the door to the
room, past a young couple looking to do what comes naturally. Rico
flashed his badge at the couple as he followed. Tomas went up the
stairs toward the roof and locked the door behind him with a deadbolt
that was at foot level. Rico shot out the deadbolt and followed.
The others followed per Borgetti's orders. Tomas climbed to the neon
sign's level, went down two levels on the other side of the building
with Rico following him.
grabbed some rope or cable and lowered himself down the side of the
building. The others began shooting but Rico ordered them to stop.
Borgetti was shooting out of a lower window, winging him as he made
it inside through an open window. He reloaded his pistol and waited
as Tomas stumbled toward the room he was in. He spotted Borgetti but
could not get away. Borgetti shot him dead. Rico arrived just in
time to see this.
