As Friday is the finale, this is my last recap for this series. This is now complete. This has been a top-notch story and I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have.
was not happy at losing the competition to Eddy, who was apparently
new to it. She was less than pleased when Arturo told her he wanted
a divorce. At her question he admitted that Vanessa was the reason.
went to see Katia at her job to tell her she was worried about
Jackie. She had insisted on going to the hospital once she knew
about Bernal's accident despite knowing that Borgetti would be there.
The test results were very strange. Katia understood the concern,
especially because of how Julio had died in a hospital. Vanessa
herself was wanting to see her son but Isabella was making her very
nervous. Katia said she would take care of a couple of things and
leave with her.
told Giovanna that their lifestyle wasn't working for him anymore.
Vanessa was not into the concept of open marriage and he was falling
in love with her. Giovanna paused long enough to pour herself some
wine and sit down on the couch. She told him she did not want a
divorce but part of their arrangement was to respect each other's
activities. They were to live apart and if Arturo's pursuit of
Vanessa were successful, she would give him his divorce. He nodded
was on the phone with Alberto when Katia entered his office
requesting permission to leave early. She explained that she and
Vanessa were going to meet Jackie and Sandro said it was alright as
there was a business issue he needed to address. Nothing serious.
He told her he would call her later and she left. He went back to
that business issue was, it was brought up by a lawyer with Catalina.
He reviewed that she was no longer investigating the possibility
that Katia had killed Nicolas. Catalina, however, held her
responsible for Nicolas' depression. What she was looking for
instead was revenge against Sandro, whom she now regarded as a
traitor. She said that he and his associates at the gym were doing
dirty business and would pay dearly.
entered Bernal's hospital room. He was awake and she ran to the bed
to embrace him. He stopped her from doing so, which she assumed was
due to pain. He said that after such a nightmare it was good to wake
up to the concern of a woman who was so “honest, good” and yet
more. She told him she loved him excessively. They kissed and he
said “Me, too.” He did not take his eyes off her. She asked
whether he thought it was an accident or something else and he said
he did not know. To her next question he said he was investigating
most important thing is that you're here, you're alright, and we're
agreed and held her hand. Again, not letting her out of his sight.
and Lascurain were outside in the waiting room having coffee. She
said Erick would be inviting him to dinner soon. Erick had beaten
him at the latest game “but only because it's the new version,”
he said. Kuri was pleased that he got on so well with her often
then changed the subject, telling her that he got a new clue in the
case of the yacht explosion.
sat in her orange uniform in her motorized chair accompanied by
Benjamin and the lawyer he engaged. She told the lawyer that she
needed to get her medications so that she can benefit from her recent
treatments. The lawyer warned her that the discovery that she was
not fully non-ambulatory would have serious consequences in that her
motorized chair could be taken away. Benjamin told her that she
would have to suspend taking the medications until they could get her
out of the prison. She agreed, but reluctantly. She was afraid that
this would provoke a regression. The lawyer asked why she was
keeping her recovery away from others. Benjamin got up and moved
closer to her so he could speak sufficiently sotto voce for
the guards not to hear. He told her to tell the lawyer everything.
She told him he could not tell anyone including the judge and he
chewed out Cortes, his departmental hit man because Bernal was alive
and recovering. The man reiterated his order not to use firearms and
said he did the best he could. It was more dangerous for him now
than for Borgetti. However, he said he wouldn't fail a second time.
“You better not,” was the reaction.
child welfare worker tried to get Diego to talk, but he wouldn't. He
nodded when he was casked whether he could. She then took out a
tambourine and slapped it near his head and he cried out and got up.
He ran to Isabella. They got him to talk.
and Katia arrived and Jackie told them that Bernal had been in an
accident. She further told them that he had gone to see Isabella
about something that didn't concern them. She was sure that he would
never learn their secret.
hugged Diego and told him they would celebrate by making a cake. He
immediately requested chocolate. She agreed and the doorbell rang.
She sent Diego into the kitchen and answered. Vanessa and Katia
entered. Diego came back into the living room and would not talk to
his mother or his “tia.” Isabella sent him to the kitchen and
told the ladies that yes, he can talk but that now he did not want to
talk to them. “He's angry with you and therefore will not speak to
I will bring him home and eventually this will be over.”
way. He will stay here. The danger is still there. The bad image
his father had, he could still be hurt. Now go. Leave your
selfishness behind and let the child live where he knows some peace.”
maybe it's selfishness but for me it's very hard to be far from my
son and more so because of your attitude toward me.”
therapist said that Diego didn't talk – couldn't – because he was
very angry with you. And his refusal to talk was his way of getting
back at you. Is that clear?”
auto body worker called the police station and asked for Lino Cortes.
Serna had answered and she told him Cortes was out and she didn't
know where. The repairman told her that he had been trying to reach
him regarding his car. He explained that he needed to fix the lights but couldn't find the originals. He needed authorization to put in the new ones he found and asked that he call him before coming over. Serna hung up the
phone not sure what this meant. Cortes came in a second later. She
told him his mechanic had called and wanted him to call back, but
gave him no details. He did not appear suspicious.
tried feeding Bernal from the hospital tray but he turned it down.
She offered to get him something from the hospital cafeteria but he
said he wasn't hungry. He would be alright; there were nurses there.
She told him nobody would care for him with the same love as she
did. He told her he was just tired. She told him to get some rest
and she would stay with him all night. He told her it was not
necessary but she insisted.
later he was still awake. She was curled up at the edge of the left
side of the bed and he punched the mattress on the right side with
his good arm, frustrated at not being able to get up.
was home and she and Katia talked about Diego. Vanessa was certain
that he didn't love er and Katia told her that Diego couldn't stay
angry with her forever. Eventually they would go to therapy together
and he would get over it.
next morning Bernal was out of the hospital and back at the police
station, his left arm still in a sling. Everyone looked happy to see
him. The man who had attacked him gave him the high sign before
picking up the phone. Rico looked over his shoulder as he spoke on
his phone and Cortes continued to stare around the room.
entered the office he shared with Kuri and Lascurain who asked him
what he was doing. He said he was investigating a case as he sat
down. Lascurain handed him two shirtless photos of Borgetti that
Serna had found. “They look to be about twenty years old,” he
Rita said nothing in order to protect her son,” Bernal said.
but before we talk to Rita I have information about who could have
dumped you in the river.”
was visiting Miriam in the prison. She had agreed to get the
computer disk from the safe deposit box. She then showed Miriam a
photo of Marcial Mendoza and asked whether she recognized him.
Miriam remembered seeing him in the house and he had told her he
worked with her husband. She couldn't remember the exact date but
that it was probably about three weeks previously. Kuri told her
that they had found his body shortly after the death of Julio Zamora.
She further explained that because of this she believed that
Borgetti may have killed Mendoza.
was telling Lascurain that they needed any pretext they could get to
search Borgetti's house. They needed to know whether he was the one
who planted the bomb on Julio Zamora's yacht. Or whether it was the
three widows. Lascurain raised the issue of whether there had been
two bombs. He then asked about Jackie. Bernal told him he was very
angry with himself. He had initially suspected the widows, then
changed his mind. Lascurain didn't see an issue, considering that
there was evidence pointing to Palazuelos and now to Borgetti, who
was certainly implicated. Bernal then asked whether he had acquired
a wristwatch with a microphone in it. He handed him a red jeweler's
presentation box containing a women's watch.
asked Miriam about a Tuesday evening. Was there anything unusual?
Miriam thought about it and realized that her husband's wedding ring
was missing. She had asked him about it and he said he wasn't sure
where he had put it that morning.
went out to where Mendoza's corpse was found. After a little while
and a minor injury to her right hand she found the ring where it had
fallen in the reeds. She put on a latex glove as far as she could
and placed the ring in an evidence bag, grinning in satisfaction.
visited Miriam at the prison. He tried to play the solicitous
husband but she wasn't having it. She told him that Irene had
gloated at her that she (meaning herself) would be the one he would
get released. She asked him what his game was. He said nothing.
She called for the guard and asked to be taken out of the visiting
room. The visit was over. He walked up to the gate, calling her “mi
amor” but she did not even look back.
went to the office and was in a good mood until Sandro took a call
from Alberto. Their business – the entire chain of gymnasiums –
was being shut down.
was in her robe when the doorbell rang. She opened the door to
Bernal who entered with a kiss and a gift. He asked her to help him
get it out of his pocket and she was surprised when she opened the
box. He asked if she liked it and she said yes. She almost never
wore a watch. He told her that his brush with death made him see the
value of time so he was giving it to her as a symbol of their
a ring?” she asked, smiling.
are crazy!” she said, embracing and kissing him. He kissed her
back. He looked at her for a moment with a pained expression. She
might have interpreted that as him being in physical rather than
psychological pain and kept on kissing.
went to Vanessa's house to tell her he was getting a divorce so that
they could be together. She told him to forget it. He didn't want
excuses but she said there were none. He talked about their
attraction becoming love eventually. She was not interested but
didn't say so.
sat down on the couch and Jackie started talking about how she never
thought she would find love after Lorenzo. Nor did her friends. She
told Bernal that he was her true love. His expression reflected his
conflicting emotions but she did not notice this. He told her he had
to leave and she told him she would never take off the watch, even to
sleep. She escorted him to the door, they kissed goodbye, and after
closing the door behind him she smiled and kissed the watch.
entered what looked like a brand-new van where the tech expert
waited. He listened to Jackie's half of a phone conversation. He
passed the headphones to Bernal who listened in time to hear her say
she loved him. He told the techie to record everything.
served Arturo some coffee and told him to get the divorce if that was
what he wanted but that her only concern now was her son. This meant
that she could not be in a relationship with anyone including him.
He knew about Eddy and said he was more patient than he was. Vanessa
tried to get him to leave. Finally he did and she thought about
went to the station and talked with Lascurain about the yacht case.
The accusations were made but he needed evidence. Lascurain changed
the subject and had him look at the photos of his car. The dents
corresponded to damage to Cortes' car. Despite that this didn't
prove that he acted for Borgetti. Lascurain said that they were
watching him to make the connexion. He handed a file to Bernal, as
he was leaving for Panama. He told Bernal to rest and be careful.
was in a restaurant with Rebeca and Gustavo. She complained of being
bored because she wasn't in school. Rebeca said they would take her
to school early the next day, but “That's what you said yesterday.”
Rebeca promised her all new clothes and a doll. Danna then said she
didn't like playing by herself and why don't you play with me like my
Daddy does? She also said that her father let her crawl into his
bed when she was scared but she can't do that because Gustavo didn't
like it. Rebeca and Gustavo both looked annoyed. She tried to tell
Danna that she had to learn to sleep by herself and the new house
will have a very big room for her.
want to see my Papa. You said I could call him whenever I wanted.
Can I, please?”
Lascurain was about to open the office door Kuri arrived and told him
he had to hear this. She showed the evidence bag with the wedding
ring and explained where she found it and about her conversation with
Miriam. There was nothing engraved in the ring, though. The
governor had given him an address for delivery of the evidence so it
would have to be taken there. He handed the evidence bag back to
Kuri. She told them that Mendoza was at Borgetti's house the night
before Diego Zamora went missing. The dots were beginning to be
lawyer and a detective met with him and handed him a file. They gave
him evidence that another woman's medical information had been used
by his ex. Her name was Veronica Fuentes. They had been told she
had left on vacation a few days before. Eddy's cell rang. He
checked it and excused himself. Danna called asking him to come and
get her. She had not been at school and she wanted to be with him.
He told her that he was in Encino Blanco and could not just yet. She
said she wanted to live with him again. Rebeca heard this and chided
her for it. The call ended shortly after that and Eddy must have had
a very bad vibe.
finished a call on his cell, talking about lawyers. Bernal came in
and handed him a file. It was the search warrant for his house.
Borgetti did not react, merely telling Bernal that Ramirez would
accompany him there. He then handed Bernal a file with an order to
extradite Irene Palazuelos to Cuidad Real that afternoon. Bernal did
not agree with this. He said he would get a police car to accompany

and another associate entered Sandro's office to tell him that they
were being shut down. There were accusations of trafficking of
anabolic steroids in the gyms. They handed him some documents.
Katia looked either scared or guilty.
talked on his cell with someone about insuring that a police car
escorted the vehicle that was taking Irene Palazuelos to Ciudad Real.
He couldn't prevent the extradition. Kuri said that as long as
Palazuelos was behind bars it didn't matter where. She was arranging
to take the wedding ring to be processed but told Bernal that first
they needed to talk with Miriam's ex, Benjamin Ieastra. She sensed
something in him and told him he could trust her. He showed her the
photos that Serna had brought. She admitted to recognizing them but
hoped he understood. He said he would see about that.
and Natalia were in a restaurant listening to a pop band singing.
Neither looked very happy, nor did anyone else in the establishment.
The rest of the place applauded. Jose finally told Natalia that
while he loved her it wasn't enough to go through with having a
child. He apologized for possibly giving her false hopes. She
concluded that their romance was over. He didn't agree, but didn't
disagree. He apologized. She cried and left him alone at the table.
was upset that her wedding would be a casualty to what was going on
with Sandro's business. Vanessa knew she had to make changes for
herself, as now she was not going to Argentina. She decided that
moving would help erase the bad memories. Katia thought that was a
good idea. She promised to help her find an apartment.
talked to Irene's mother about their plan. She didn't care that she
would be risking her life so that Irene could escape. “Irene has
many things to do in life,” she said, possibly in the ignorance of
the things her daughter had already done. She talked about her
grandson dying in prison and Borgetii said he didn't know about this.
“You mean you don't know what happened to Victor?” the old woman
he asked. “Are you referring to Victor Martinez?”
then realized what he had never known about Irene... and what he had
and her son were the only ones I had in this life. I'll risk my life
for her freedom so she can get out of this accursed place.”
stepped outside with the others and looked at the documents. He
asked whether they called a lawyer and wondered who could have
brought the charges against them. Three clients approached wanting
to know what was happening. A female client said that if he didn't
know when it would be resolved she insisted on the return of her
payments. He agreed.
was let out of her cell to visit with her mother. She was not
thrilled at the prospect. Aurora made a sarcastic comment about how
most prisoners are happy to have visitors, which she knew her
daughter wouldn't like. She then told her she was smart to sell her
shares because now all Farmateca shares are being confiscated. She
told her she had enough money for the two of them to leave the
country together, which did not thrill Irene. She told Irene that
she had met with Borgetti who would help them. Irene wasn't ready to
believe that. She trusted no one. She asked a guard for pen and
paper so she could write a letter for her mother to take with her.
When the guard left she told her mother that if anything were to
happen to her that letter was to go to Bernal.
her mother left Irene found Miriam and taunted her about Borgetti
helping her to get out. She would be out in a few hours. Miriam
didn't believe that; only that Irene would end up in another prison.
Irene wasn't bothered about any of this, continuing to taunt Miriam
until someone called her over the loudspeaker to have her come to the

given a black jacket to wear over her orange uniform.
and Ramirez were searching Borgetti's home. They found nothing in
the house. Kuri began searching his car. She found nothing in the
car. She noticed a pair of black boots with some mud caked on them.
The maid – who had been watching her all along – told her that
the boots belonged to the gardener. Kuri wasn't too sure about that.
She used a Q-Tip to take samples of a reddish substance on the vamp
of the left boot.
two guards who were escorting Irene drove along the road, followed by
the other police car. They were stopped by what looked like a border
guard or state policeman. A man was lying in the road behind another
car, apparently unconscious. Someone reported this. The driver
stopped and got out of the car. He was shot by the man who stopped
the car and the one posing as the hit-and-run victim. Others came
out of the woodwork and the stopped car, all masked and all with
ducked down on the back seat until the shooting stopped. The
denim-clad man got her out and unlocked her cuffs as another man in
uniform with a helmet arrived on a motorcycle. He had Irene climb on
the cycle behind its driver and they were off.
of the shooting victims was still alive and strong enough to call the
Encino Blanco station to report the attack and the escape. Serna
answered the phone.
motorcycle – which was a police vehicle – stopped at the
appointed place where a car was waiting. Irene ran to the car and got
in. Her mother was sitting on the passenger side. Irene saw no keys
in the ignition and none on the seat. “The keys, the keys!” she
said, almost in panic. She nudged her mother who not only did not
respond, she fell toward the passenger side door. Irene realized
that she was dead. She leaped out of the car, not knowing what to
do. She started walking and then spotted Borgetti watching her from
behind a tree.
at the Encino Blanco precinct Bernal was furious. Serna told him
that she thought that this had been planned. There had been a
shootout and two policemen were dead. There was an ambulance on the
way to get the wounded one. Borgetti hadn't been seen for several
hours. Bernal picked up his cell and left the office.

cared about her. You just used her, just like Victor Martinez.”
He came out from behind the tree. “Your son! Now I understand why
you tolerated that idiot. He was useless.”

no, no. Don't play the victim because it doesn't suit you. Did you
believe I wouldn't discover it was you who revealed the truth about
the affair with Rita and the son we had? You think I wouldn't figure
that out? Don't try to deny it. I suspected it before but now I
know. It was also you who leaked the information to that journalist

you, my dear Irene.” He took out his pistol and prepped it. “As
I've said before whoever betrays me doesn't live to talk about it.”
no. Don't kill me. Let me go. I swear I will never see you again!
Please, please, Bruno, listen to me. If you kill me there is a
letter that will reveal all your crimes.”

of the ones at the prison and now your mother. You have nobody! You

Irene. Run. Run.”

wait!” She started running and he continued counting.
his countdown he thought about the murder of the prostitute. When he
hit five he began to follow her. He fired the pistol in the air and
away from her on the counts of five and four and hit her high on the
left shoulder on the count of three. He closed in behind her, close
enough for a kiss, then backed off and shot her in the back. She
fell face down in the grass and the weeds. He tried to fire again,
then somehow couldn't, and backed off in frustration.
and Ramirez were outside the Borgetti house, having found nothing
incriminating. Her cell rang and she found out about the escape.
They headed for the cars.
fight broke out in the exercise room of the women's prison. Miriam
punched the controls on her chair but it did not move. She stood up
with great effort and collapsed on the floor as the fight migrated to
another part of the room. A guard watched as she struggled to her
feet and made it back to the chair.

guard began pulling Miriam out of the chair. Miriam tried to fight
back. A second guard came to aid the first one.
fight seemed to have stopped and the other inmates sat on the benches
to watch as the two guards pulled Miriam out of the chair and she
collapsed to her knees. The guards began dragging her away from the
arrived at the commissioner's office. They shook hands and sat at
the commissioner's desk where Borgetti started talking about Miriam
being in prison. The commissioner said he would be unable to help
him get her out. He advised him to divorce her to save his public
image. Borgetti asked “What if she presents me as cruel and
controlling and the world's worst husband?”

Bernal. There were two bodybags. Bernal said they needed to find
Palazuelos and he began giving orders to the others. The cop who
called the precinct was still alive and placed in the ambulance.

commissioner. “One more and that's final unless you can manage

gave it to Borgetti. “You'll have to say that your wife deceived
you as she was looking to enjoy the privilege of being married to a
chief of police.”

phone rang on the desk of Antonio Benítez, the Federal Police Chief.
His agent, Barrientos, was calling on his cell to report that
Borgetti was in the commissioner's office. Benitez told him to find
out everything that happened. He agreed and ended the call just as
Borgetti walked out toward the elevator.
then call Benjamín on another line to update him. He was going to
see Lizárraga personally to find out what was going on. Benjamín
advised him to talk first to Bernal or Kuri who were close enough to
Borgetti. Benitez said he'd do this and make a decision. He ended
kept up his false front by calling Rico and asking how Irene
Palazuelos could have escaped. Rico said that Bernal and Kuri were
out looking for her and Borgetti said he wanted to be notified when
she was found, dead or alive. Rico said he would. Serna was
standing over the desk listening to Rico's half of the exchange.
and Kuri found the car with Irene's mother inside. Irene was found
nearby in the grass.
prison doctor confirmed Guillain-Barré Syndrome. However, he said
that the condition of her legs indicated that she had been getting
rehabilitative therapy so this was not the first time she had gotten
up on her feet. That was his final word. Miriam tried to deny this.
The doctor left the office and the warden asked Miriam why she
didn't tell them any of this. She didn't know she had to. The
warden concluded that Miriam had done this for the convenience that
being handicapped would provide her and said she was going to call
Borgetti. Miriam tried to stop her by telling her that he didn't
know about this. She was threatened with the punishment cell. Then
another guard entered to tell the warden that Irene Palazuelos had
escaped. Miriam looked scared.
warden called Borgetti and the first thing they talked about was the
escape. He claimed to have just been informed and was beginning the
investigation. She wanted to be informed if anyone from the prison
was involved. It was obvious she had accomplices. She made him
promise to update her. She then told him that they had discovered
that his wife could walk. Which caused him to stop walking.
was locked in the punishment cell. She was left standing against a
wall. As a guard watched through the wired window she made her way
to the corner before collapsing onto the floor.
you have to be mistaken,” Borgetti said to the warden. “I'm not
aware of any special treatments given to my wife. I will talk to her
doctor this morning and ask if you can let her out of her cell to
talk to him.” The warden must have agreed because he thanked her
before ending the call. He then wondered who his wife really was.
that evening he was in his office at the precinct where hetalked with
the Cuidad Real police chief to tell him that Irene died on Mexican
turf so they would take care of the investigation. The issue of
accomplices came up and Borgetti was a cold as ice, as though he
himself had not been involved. He did not admit to ordering the
extradition. Ciudad Real had evidence of the clandestine
laboratories and wanted to finish the case. Borgetti told them he
would keep his word and find the accomplices.
and Kuri returned to the precinct followed by the press asking about
the death of Irene Palazuelos. Bernal carefully told them that there
were no details yet and no suspects. When he saw Borgetti leave his
office he suggested they talk to him. All of the reporters swarmed
Borgetti who waived them off with standard lines everyone is used to
saying. He did not anticipate questions about Miriam. He made the
speech about his job being to seek justice and Miriam would not
benefit from his position. He would seek justice in that case no
matter what it was. Bernal and Kuri watched in satisfaction.
was at the gym where the self-defense classes were held. Bernal
arrived to tell her about Irene. When he told her that Irene was
dead she asked whether it was Borgetti who killed her. Bernal said
he thought so, or it was someone he hired. Jackie looked a little
she told the other widows. They talked about this, realizing that
they were probably no better off. The truth could still come out if
Borgetti was alive. They had no way of knowing that their
conversation was being recorded in a van parked in the neighborhood
and that Bernal was also listening.
following morning the guard with the bangs entered the punishment
cell to tell Miriam to get up. She was unable to. The guard taunted
her by holding out her nightstick for Miriam to grab. She still
could not get up.
the visiting lounge Benjamín and Kuri waited. They talked about the
escape. He was certain tha Borgetti was the accomplice, but there
was no proof. One of the guards came out to tell them that the
prisoner could not have visitors because she was in the punishment
cell for having lied about being disabled. When she went back to
work Kuri wondered how they found this out.
was watching his business fall apart around him. He had talked to
Arturo but there was nothing to do for this right now. Katia was
still willing to marry him. She asked if there was any chance that
Catalina was behind this. She had hated her for so long. Sandro
looked like he was looking for the light switch.
was in a café having some blood-red wine with Jimena. It was clear
from their conversation that they had colluded in the charges against
Sandro's business. Catalina was certain that Sandro would not
suspect her because she had always helped him in the past.
guard forced Miriam to walk to the warden's office where she dropped
her in a chair in front of Borgetti and the doctor who had treated
her previously. Both demanded to know why she had lied. She refused
to talk without her lawyer being present. The doctor excused himself
and left. Borgetti sat down, grabbed Miriam, and shook her. He was
furious at what he said made him feel stupid. He was hurting her
until she almost cried. The warden only watched.
and Benjamín sat in the visiting area, clearly having discussed the
situation. Kuri mentioned that faking paralysis was going to hurt
Miriam's credibility, as nobody was likely to believe anything she
said after that. Or before. He asked how they could help her. This
led to him revealing Miriam's motive for marrying Borgetti. It was
revenge for the death of her niece.
verbal abuse of Miriam continued, followed by his telling her he will
divorce her. She told him she didn't care as she no longer wanted to
be his wife. The warden stopped that line of conversation saying it
was personal matters having nothing to do with the reason for him
being there. His presence was only to uncover the truth about her
