La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo, #5, Friday 5/12/17 Ryan saves Estela, Estela saves Ryan. But who will save Danilo… from his own stupidity?
Ryan takes Estella, Chayo and Palomita to his mansion. Mercy almost has a heart attack in seeing them, but Ryan says he brought his "family" home, so she better deal with it, or else...
In order to keep up the pretense of a reunion, Estella and Ryan need to share the same room, so Paloma has to sleep with Chayo in a separate part of the house.
Also, Estella just happens to get a glimpse of Ryan's "goods" - the girl likes what she sees and he doesn't mind the admiration. Dudes, I understand that you have to play pretend, do you wanna make things easier by just going for it?
Mercy goes to a bar and who is there to join her? Young, married Joe, the company lawyer and Mercy's boy toy apparently.
Danilo sees them making out in the car later in the evening - he's sure to take advantage of this bit of information later on. He also realizes that working for El Dorado comes with serious, dangerous strings attached. Will this be enough for him to say no?
On the other hand, Morgana is more than willing to accept the deal.
Mercy and Pedro Carillo apparently share a common history. She has his picture hidden in her room - wonder what this is about...
Mercy has gone to visit Don Chayo, the famous regional music singer (just an aside, but I really don’t care about this type of music). Earlier she was telling Joe that they need to get him to sign back with them, because they lost a lot of contracts since Walter died and Ryan being accused of murder didn’t really help matters.
I like your who's savin who title. I thought Don Chayo remarked to Mercy that 'if blah blah blah you would kill Pedro Carillo again.' as one of those half joking, half NOT joking things.
Morgana and Curley should have taken the keys and dropped them down the sewer grate. I will be surprised if Dani-low survives. Not to mention the hapless unlucky innocent truck driver.
Morgana is interesting. She seems to have a close (bangingly) relationship with Danilow, but no freeking respect for the arrogant little turd. With THOSE leggs, she should have flushed him a long time ago, Woof !
There are so many twists and turns here, I will need to awaken the other half of my brain which had dozed off as I watched Vino El Abortion. WTF does Eye Digger man have against Estella?
IE: a car is F A R harder to move and hide if the steering is locked and the engine will not run and the transmission is locked in park. All these things are designed to be difficult and time consuming to defeat for just that reason. ? ? ?
Idk Julie but thatd be a little too many peoplr coming back from the deadnor never really dead...too much for me. They introduced him as Mr.Blake and it seems Luisa is his unconditional so I assume they wouldnt lie to each other if he was Pedro.
The dumb part is right.
And No-Eyes is recognizing her voice, so it is the real Laurestela or whatever her name is, not the fake Estela he wants to kill. I'm having trouble keeping everyone's names straight. Add in having two names, and I'm ready to just rename them all something I can remember.
Estela sure knows her way around the armory. Hmmm. my music teacher didn't carry, I guess times have changed.
I'm beginning to think Paloma is the only one who doesn't have some skeletons floating around. And I bet she has stolen a couple Cheerios from MamaMercy by now. Little thief has made off with my heart already.
Busy day today, so I've only had time to read the comments...great as ever!
Kirby, always enjoy your comments...they always make me laugh. I think Palomita has made off with all of our hearts :-)
Be back later
Thanks for joining Alfredo. Poor guy needs a break.
"but there are big blank spaces that I cannot recal" French Vanilla with hot fudge, a cherry and some of that extra rich aerosol whipped cream.
THAT'll keep you awake.
"I think the actors are having the time of their lives playing these interactions, because they are definitely fun to watch." You are so right! Africa definitely seems to be enjoying herself. I like the way some of the scenes are much lighter and bring in humor to this otherwise intense TN.
"Estella sure proves that she can be really dumb sometimes." My thoughts exactly! It's obvious that this girl has ALOT of experience with adverse and dangerous situations, yet she makes these off-the-wall impulsive decisions that just don't match up with the character we have been shown. In addition to what Adriana mentioned--Someone commented yesterday that it was strange that Laustela allowed Paloma to sleep in another bedroom (even if it was with Chayo). In this episode, I thought it also strange that she and Chayo would leave Paloma alone with Mercy (pre-kidnapping). What is wrong with this woman...after she went through so much get away from Mr. Blake...all the way from Peru?!
In the scene at Riverdale, the owner and the other guy (who happens to be the bald, quite man at the parent meeting) were talking about how lucky they were--the attack on the school, Estela's Father being revealed, and Ryan's trial happened just at the right time. It seems that they had been planning on starting some type of illegal activity and these events were only going to give them something to blame it on. I didn't catch everything they said because they were talking so fast, but that's the jist of it.
Africa and Danilo make me believe Morgana and Danilo are a couple and know each other intimately. How refreshing.
I hope Danilo doesn't die, he's the best character so far by far.
Just how does Ryan think he can make Laura and Paloma legal? Everyone knows her as Estela and she's not. Even if he marries "Estela" it changes nothing for Laura.
Witty and wry from start to finish. "unlike all the Televisa ranches in the history of telenovela making, the one that Danilo could inherit is a real dump, most likely a money pit and a death hazard" was superb as was "if it means something more difficult than just holding a microphone and moving his hips to Morgana’s lascivious voice, he’s rather disappointed".
Is Mercy Me's house so large that Adriana either A), didn't think to search the rest of it before she flew off the handle or B) was unaware of the pool (I assume it is IN the house, correct?)
I do care about Laura and I like her with Ryan. What on earth could she possibly have done to Mr. Blake?
That said, Morgana and Danilo are stealing the show here. And you nailed it tofie. Totally believable as a real couple. I loved the scene where Danilo asked Mercy why she didn't have a picture of him. I get fonder of the actor every time I see him on screen. No wonder Africa is having so much fun. RC, it really does help the story and our caring about the characters when they seem to have an obvious on screen chemistry. Africa is one of the reasons I started watching this - Danilo is just charming. Well most of the time...
Kirby, I enjoyed your observations particularly "I will be surprised if Dani-low survives. Not to mention the hapless unlucky innocent truck driver". I had really thought third wheel was going to try and wrestle the keys away from him, but retreated with very little fight I thought. It's too early for Dani to die and it's a shame someone will likely die who doesn't deserve to.
After Vino, this is refreshing and lively. And to see the characters actually look as though they are in love, in lust or merely even interested is heartening.
This was wonderful. Thank you Adriana Noel.
A struggle ensues and the owner manages to run off with Estella’s car keys and her car (I guess this should cover rent, the tussled house and the manhandling). ha!
Seeing Danilo hear that the bum ranch was left to the owner's lazy, uneducated, good for nothing son was a hoot. Still trying to wrap my head around all these characters. The pace is too fast for me and I like it.
You may be a mother. You may not be a mother. But you are someone. Whether a daughter, sister, aunt, niece or friend, you are celebrated tomorrow.
Wishing all women happiness as we celebrate our collective strength and sisterhood.
FWIW--I rewatched Epi #4 as well as Friday's. In #4, Mr. Blake, with his eyes still bandaged curses the person who took away the only thing valuable in his life. This happened before he heard Laura Oviedo's voice in Epi #5 and said he would personally kill her. We saw in Laura's flashback that it was Mr. Blake outside Laura's door with the other guy who was banging on it and Laura was clutching the fairly recently born infant, cowering on the other side. She kept saying he wasn't going to take (her/the?) child away from her. I missed hearing her say La Nina.
At the time I assumed she was an unwed mother and they were going to take her child and sell it. I was having my own flashback to the tn Montecristo where there was an organized ring that did that. They would actually go into hospitals, with the collusion of doctors to take newborns and tell the mothers their child had died. Then they would sell the babies.
Kirny, love your nickname for Danilo, I will steal it whenever he does something stupid again (soon, I guess).
The guy can't be dead, too soon for that but if the poor truck driver diesEl Dorado might cover Dani's tracks and mess wirh him even more in the future.
Danilo and Morgana are fun to watch. They are believable as lovers who share pillow talks and a certain complicity. I do wish Morgana showed more smarts when it comes to El Dorado, she'll get herself into trouble if not.
I don't get how El Dorado pretends to hide his true identity from the band. Aren't they supposed to sign for him?
Ryan just saw the keys in the car while he was checking it. Taling rhem out was just common sense, but he did lose them soon after in the struggle outside the house.
Diana, THANK YOU! We already celebrated Mother's Day where I live, but I accept a second celebration :))
Boy, you almost have to watch a TN to see Ariande with her clothes on ! Apparently she typically only wears panties, and a bra maybe halfway on if she is dressing up to go out ! I wondered where else I had seen her, and after Googling her I was chasing my tail in circles. Woof.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL YOU BEAUTIFUL WOMEN!! ..and a belated FELIZ DIA DE LAS MADRES to those of you who celebrated last Wednesday
All this Mother stuff got me thinking, Dani-Low was Franco in P&P and was a stinker there too. As a matter of fact, he was Eladio's (hidden for a long time), illegitimate son there also.
It suits him.
Cuz he'll probably end up being an ass
Anyway the rest of this show, so it's a perfect fit for him. It could be for
Danilo to. What A jerk.
I hope estela/Laura won't be one of those heroines that's going to be doing all kinds of stupid stuff while the galan trys to save her life and almost getting himself killed in the process. When she was hiding in the closet and her phone started ringing I thought why didn't you put it on "ringer off"? but nobody ever thinks of doing that.I guess it wouldn't have
Done any good to run out the front door, so she runs out the back? She's lived in that house for how many years? did she know there wouldn't be a way out the back? She's gonna annoy me a lot this girl. But I like their
Chimistry. And she did take a peak at his business. His turn.
Danilo, I'm not really caring that much about him. If hes gonna be dumb &
Stupid all through the rest of the show, I'll just ignore him. Drunk and
Driving is not entertaining at all.
Mercy has a secret....is that guy her
Baby daddy? The baby being "Ryan"?
O Miss mercy, you Been a nooty girl.
And joe,with your happily married self
What A messy mess.
Thank You Adriana.♡HAPPY♡MOTHERS DAY
TO ALL THE MOM'S ON THE PATIO AND THE
MOM'S THAT RECAP♡♡♡. MOM'S ROCK♡♡♡
I am finally able to pop into the patio after a weekend away at a wedding .
Kirby, I am so fearful of locking my keys in the car that I check to see if they are in my purse before I shut the door. Years ago, Hubba and I went to put flowers on the cemetery at night. I purposely left the car door open because we left the car running , but the door closed and automatically locked. It was a stressful, creepy experience that left me paranoid about the car keYS.
Danilo is young, conceited, and foolish, but I hope that he does not end up being a bad guy.
Happy Mothers'Day to all the patio ladies.
The flowers are for you Moms.
I like to think of Marcos Mendez as HoneyBUN. He has a scary vibe in this show, so different than the other roles that I have seen him in.
Kirby you are a sweet guy. Does Mrs Kirby Know how blessed she is? Thank you.
I wouldn't be surprised if he is el darodo. Marcos Mendez, I remember him
From PyP.That salt-pepper hair of his
Is beautiful. I rather see him play a good Guy.Hes kinda creepy in this. But
He plays creepy well.
"Assdrubal"is what I was tryin to type
This thing has a mind of its own.
That would open up a whole new dimension, (and two hundred thousand problems I am sure) if we could embed photos in our posts. I worked WITH Google and circumvented it in a way, and I am surprised I'm not living down the hall on Doritos and water.
Many other Forums allow photo posts, but they are the forums where a picture is handy to diagnose a problem or show off a snazzy paint job.
That purple is a November Orchid. A Lady gave it to me (My neighbor) before she moved back to the UK. I do not know anything about it except it blooms right before Thanksgiving.
HoneyBun is clever, but we might change our mind after we get to know him. MoneyBun works too. Bun has a lots of possibilities, almost like Dis.
This show has more secrets than the CIA. I hope they will dribble them out to us rather than save them all for the Gran Final. I'm dying to know who Mr. Blake is. Dying to see Morgana on stage again too.
Takin care of, so I got my neighbor to
Take me to the old lady's house to get
The other car key. I paid 30.00 to her to go Out that bad weather, and wait for me To find the key then bring me back to my house where the car was. As soon as I got the chance I had another key made. And since then I have locked the Keys in the car, BUT,I do have a spare. Love my spare keys.
Kirby and Susanlynn, yes, I have locked my keys in the car more than once.
Nina, Marcos is always a mesmerizing villain - those eyes and that beautiful gray hair. The first time I saw him was as an abusive doctor in Querida Enigma. Yes, I am NOT feeling the "honey" bun. At all. Distracting. Where are my scissors??
Flowers? Beautiful Kirby. I can't wait to see what you will do next...
Hope everyone had a good day.
I am going to miss tomorrow night so will look forward to the recap.
Who was AssBun in P&P? I can't remember him.
OK I'm back, he was Augustin, wasn't that Arturo's attorney?
He does have gorgeous eyes. He was arturo's lawyer. I think they were best buds too.
I don't think Laustela (like Oriana over in MPV) thinks logically or sensibly when it comes to Paloma, especially if she thinks she's disappeared. It's like she goes into full reaction mode and thinking things through is not the first priority. Note: all she had to do was look around the house a little more and she would've found her. I like that Ryan and Laustela both mutually save each other, that is always a good thing :)
As for Danilo, I feel bad for him sometimes tbh. He's pigheaded and a drunk (thus far) but he also grew up without a father, with a mother who constantly told him his father didn't want him either, and good ol' Mercy reminding him if she ever saw him while Walter was alive. I know some people move on and become upstanding citizens after that but not everyone is strong enough. If anything, that ranch reminds him of all he expected out of Walter and how little he got in the end. That has to be rough.
MercyMe has a famous "if looks can kill" stare, huh? Even Don Chayo was moving back slowly. I wonder how Ryan is going to turn everything around at Furia since everything seems to be going downhill as far as new articles. Danilo's band may not be looking so bad (if they remember their songs! lol)
As for Mr. Blake, I guess Laustela was also a singer in Mexico? Her voice, as nice as it is, may be her undoing.
Second thoughts on the dad leaving Danilo a bum ranch. He could've left him nothing. If he's creative, he'll turn the ranch into something.
I like that Ryan and Laustela seem to be coming together gradually. Nice to see love bloom, instead of the typical first-look thunderbolt.
Binged all the episodes this weekend, I am really liking it. The chemistry between the leads is there. I think Laustela is acting irrationally because her carefully ordered world is falling apart. Things I liked, Ryan taking Paloma swimming was really cute kinda wish we saw more of that. Ryan waking Laustela up from her nightmare, has any couple talked as much these two at the beginning of a show. Them saving each other, that actually works well for the future. I'm liking Mercy, she was hurt by her husband let her have some fun. I feel sorry for Danilo, but if breaks the law to much not sure if I can get behind him. Maybe he will be the plucky comic relief.
Lurklock random unexpected failures.
Beep Beep Beep.....
Anonomizer Poole compromised and leaking........
The levee has broken and you will soon be hammering away on your keyboard to total strangers at 2:00 AM.
Sorry. You may have been assimilated.
Susanlynn--Verra OT. I just got a notice from Amazon that all "Jamie and Claire's" books, translated into Spanish are available. Somehow, I don't think it would work for me in Spanish. I need to hear that Highland accent in my head and the Velly British English on Claire's side.
