La Candidata Capitulo 24; Thursday, July 6, 2017: Regina Confronts Cecelia
Well this is sure picking up the pace!
"Alonso goes on at the event thanking his family and talking about how he plans to fight corruption and violence in Mexico. (Yeah buddy, you are part of the problem!)" Alonso sure spews that BS, huh? I am always amazed how good people can act, despite their true feelings, but we'll see how his candidate run goes when other drama bombs go off. It’s funny how he knew Regina was awake but still reprimanded her like a parent to a child regarding how “little she cares.”
Cecelia keeps breaking her own rules for escorts…if Alonso catches her…though that may be the least of their worries right now after that article.
Helena Rojo keeps knocking it out of the park. Favorite scene was definitely Natalia and Magda. It's sad to see how much these women gave up for the man they loved and how little it was all worth. In some ways though, Natalia and Regina are at the same crucial point but one can do a lot more with her life right now than the other. I'm glad Regina lives in a time where she can divorce her husband and probably still be successful in her career. Magda, Natalia and Noemi didn't have that chance, sadly.
Speaking of Noemi, her conversation with Regina was horrible last episode but I think drunk Noemi is the real one. The one who doesn't care about decorum or "doing what a good wife needs to do" but the one who knows all the dirty secrets and won't hide them.
I can Ignacio sh** bricks when he saw Teresa…she shown up like Michael Myers on Halloween like a dog with a bone. She's so desperate for anyone to touch her it's pathetic but Gerardo fell for it, hook, line and sinker. How soon the delusion starts after an hour of sex….
Andres and Daniela are sweet. I also hope we have him around for a while.
Alfredo: Regina still in the Mexican Federal Senate.
The hints have begun and the revelation about Cecelia's parentage should happen soon. Noemi should demand a divorce over it.
I don't like that Emiliano seems to be attracted to Cecelia. Can there be any sicker thing to happen with this boy?
I also don't like what just happened with Gerardo and Teresa. I realize that he may have mostly closed his eyes and thought of Regina and he's likely been celibate for some time. However, if Teresa can still get pregnant this would be an even bigger disaster than it looked. Not to mention that this is now on video, which is really going to come back and bite him on the tush.
BTW, he has a gorgeous chest. I hope that scene wasn't censored.
Besides Andrés, I am really concerned about Sra. Galindo and her son. . Yeah, Susana left the country. I hope the Galindo's don't take the same trip.
Gerardo has proved just how stupid he is having sex with Teresa. I lauged at the surveillance guys watching a "porn movie". That was some good comic relief. Any body think about birth control??? Just saying. . . .
I cannot wait to hear Cecilia's explanation. .
Now I could go for some chilaquiles and huevos but am too lazy!
I also found it rather sickening that Alonso pays attention to his son when he needs him to portray the happy family. I think he even offered him a car. When Emiliano really needed him, Regina had to sort out the mess while Alsonso has a rendevous with Cecilia. Gerardo is just plain stupid in getting involved with Theresa again. Did Mario arrange for the surveillance cameras to be set up? Is Gerardo supposedly the rival candidate for the other party?
The one good thing about those cameras is that Ignacio doesn't know about them. Once he's caught on them that will put him in boiling water with Gerardo for his hypocrisy about reconciliation.
The way Alonso treats people is sickening. His family are merely props for his career. I don't see any genuine feeling there. The best communication he ever had with Regina would have been intellectual, but that is also over. Now that Natalia and Magda have talked about Omar I'm sure the writers will come up with him suffering from dementia and blaming his violence on that.
There could be a reveal later on that Natalia and Magda were pregnant at the same time, delivered within 24 hours of each other, and Natalia's baby was either deformed or dead so Omar paid off a doctor to switch them. That would not surprise me at all.
At best, Magda probably yearns for what could've been.
Cynthia, you heard correctly.
Another great tidbit is the fact that Regina never took Alonso's name...she's been fighting the establishment for a long time.
It felt really weird that Emiliano looked at Cecelia that way and she's really supposed to be his aunt if Regina is his birth mother for real. But if Regina is not his birth mother, then I guess it would be more acceptable. But still bleh! This could all get very incestuous very quickly. Gross!
Or...could it be a character we know but is not directly related to the San Romans?
Emiliano is 17.
Regina was Alonso's star student at university. He has to have a doctorate to teach at that level so he has to be at least 15 years older than Regina and he could be more (He is made up to look older than he really is). If they married after she got her degree that would mean that she is at least 40 now, which would make Natalia at least 75.
Magda might still be on the other side of 60, but Omar looks about 80. Neither of these actors' real ages are on IMDB.
No, I don't think Regina had a conception problem. Alonso has a problem in humanity in that he doesn't treat his family like people.
Urban: I am totally with you, the whole Emi attracted to Ceci is disgusting. She knows that he is her nephew, so she would put a stop to it. And as far as Tere and Gerardo getting together, I was repulsed by her, she is so needy, and he is so stupid!!
Alfredo: I agree about Noemi, the drunk one is the real one, however when she told Regina that it was her duty as the Governor's wife to go to that event she disappointed me. If the real Noemi doesn't care about norms and expectations why does the sober one force her daughter to be a conformist, dutiful wife? In my book she is as bad as Isela letting Cecilia do Mario's dirty deeds. There it is another one of the parallels I was talking about last time. The two mothers who don't look out for their daughters. You can add Mario, Ignacio, Tere, Alonso,and even Regina to this list of unfit parents.
Yes, you are right Sandie, that most of these parents are unfit for the job.
It is easy to assume that Alonso is oblivious to his parents' relationship, but was he always? Was it any different when he was Emiliano's age or younger? That would be difficult to conceal from a child. He appeared shocked when Omar first abused Natalia before our eyes and he is determined to protect Natalia from him now (although we can certainly question his motives for this).
I will buy into the idea that Omar has never been faithful to Natalia. He also behaves like old-school Mafia in never letting her know anything about his business. I'm not sure that he always physically abused her, though.
BTW, Luz Maria Jerez is 59 and her birthday was on Wednesday.
There's no way Regina would go along with this scenario in regards to Emiliano. She would never agree to perpetuate a lie as big as raising another's child as her own. She is smarter, stronger, and has a mind of her own, as her son, husband, father and father-in-law are finding out.
I also think that Regina has decided to pick her fights with her husband. She was bombarded from all sides with the "stand by your man" routine and now that she knows where everyone in her family stands, she's decided to follow the old adage, "Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer!" By not totally alienating those in the "inner circle," she may become privy to some information she would not otherwise have, which may help her with her own agenda in the long run.
Did this telenovela already run in Mexico?
I mean, we've seen Omar viciously beat Natalia & I'm afraid the beatings aren't going to stop.
