La Candidata, Miercoles 7/26/2017, Chapter 32: Mauro Becomes New Governor (or About Time Man!)
“Did you not understand, or do I have to repeat myself?” of course all this was done in front of Lorena to Cecilia’s dismay. She leaves with tail between her legs. Lorena takes the opportunity to tell Alonso that Cecilia is dangerous and he should consider getting rid of her.
In Regina’s office she has asked Gerardo to explain the video of his sexual encounter with Tere. Regina is not upset, after all Tere is Gerardo’s wife; he corrects her and says ex-wife. Regina quite serenely just says that they both have cycles they need to close. As a matter of fact Gerardo should be concerned that cameras have been installed in his house and should look into it.
Mario is on phone with Almiron, confirms that he sent Regina the video, as Tere is looking on listening to Mario’s end of the conversation. When he hangs up Tere asks “what video?”, and Mario goes on to explain that his people installed cameras at her house and they have a video of her and Gerardo getting down and dirty. Tere doesn’t know how she feels about this, but I guess if it separates Regina and Gerardo it can’t be all bad. Mario warns her that she needs to stop acting crazy otherwise she will lose both Gerardo and the money he pays her for doing nothing.
On his way home Gerardo calls Ximena and tells her about the camera’s. Tells her to stay put. Nayeli is with Ximena and want’s to start looking for the cameras.
“be careful with her because she has contacts with the press, you have to think carefully what you are going to do “
“You don’t have to give me advice”
“It’s obvious she fell in love with you that can bring us problems, unless of course if you still like her and you prefer her over me”.
She also continues telling him that she needs a couple of fall guys because “I am not going to be implicated with this mess” (she is referring to the corrupt handling of the money in the health department, which she has uncovered since she is now the Health Secretary).
At his house Gerardo finds the cameras and looks straight at them and threatens the men behind the camera.
At a press conference Alonso introduces the new interim Governor “Mauro Olvera”.
Regina visits her mother and find that she is better. Noemi warns Regina to never contradict her father. Her face is fear stricken Regina suspects something but does not press her further.
In Alonso’s office he and Mauro are celebrating the new “interim governor”, however he begins to be an ass to him and tells Mauro not to forget who is really in charge here. So don’t be letting power get to your head because “I am in charge”. By the way “what the hell is wrong with Cecilia, I am getting sick of her”
Regina continues talking to her mom. She asks her “what did you find out about dad, you were going to tell me before you had your accident”. Noemi has no choice but to pretend she forgot. Can’t remember anything.
Omar is at home with his own attorney who is informing him about Natalia’ filing for divorce and that he needs to be smart because he does have the domestic violence accusation hanging over his head and if he is not smart she will take everything. At that moment Marcia walks in and dumb old man wants to introduce this great acquisition to his attorney….ridiculous.
Israel walks into Magda’s apartment with who I assume is his daughter in law and his granddaughter. The daughter in law is admiring the place, but Israel says she can’t stay long.
"why are you acting all weird, and why did you go to Lorena’s to make a scene”
“Oh that’s what she told you, I did not make a scene”
“Look Cecilia I do what I want with my life, I don’t have an owner”
He continues to talk to her in a very rude manner and says
“By the way what happened in your apartment? Is Emiliano hot for you, did you take him to your bed?”
Cecilia becomes offended and begins to say something when make-up lady walks in so she walks away.
“Why are you so tense?”
“I am not tense I am busy taking care of Lorena Sanchez”
“Oh what are you going to bed with her too?”
“You are unbearable”
“And you, what are you? you are making me distrust you”
“There are limits Alonso, you have to be careful or you will be left all alone”
“I hope you have not formed a bad opinion of me”
“My opinion of you has not changed”
“What do you mean?”
“You are an embarrassment as a representative of the government and as a woman, and if you like my husband I recommend you ask him to take you to a hotel if you have some dignity”
Regina leaves, Lorena is floored.
Andres and Gerardo at a Bar, Andres recommends that Gerardo make a public announcement about the cameras in his house, because at the police department they will be filing his complaint in the round file cabinet. (Trashing it). Gerardo will consider this advice. Gerardo asks about Almiron, and Andres says that supposedly he had been fired, but he is still working undercover. He also offers his services as a security guard since he is not welcomed at police station anymore for turning in El Cuervo.
“Thank you I accept your apology”
“I feel strange when I’m with you” Jose gets close enough and holds her hand, but she backs off and tells him until tomorrow.
“Are you going to Gerardo, tell me you love him”
“I do love him, but I have responsibilities”
“Forget about being responsible, life is now” Regina agrees and they toast to it.
Ignacio and Teresa continue to have rough sex and discuss their hatred for Gerardo. They both work for Mario because they both hate Gerardo.
Alonso is being driven around without anywhere to go (pathetic)
“More than that”
“More than that?” smiles
“Yes” smiles back
She stands up, he takes her and they begin to kiss passionately.
I liked Mauro asking Cecilia if he had to draw her a family tree in reference to Emiliano.
Alonso seems to be enjoying sticking it to Mauro whenever he can lately.
About time Regina had some time for herself. It was fun seeing her out at the bar w/Daniela.
Looks like Magda has new house guests. Why do I have a feeling they are going to stay?
I did not like Gerardo's explanation about having had sex with Teresa. It was the only time he had sex with her after the divorce? Why did he have sex with her at al? Regina was right about sending Teresa the wrong/mixed message.
We're really dancing on the edge now with a potential lesbian encounter between Nayeli and Ximena and rough sex between Teresa and Ignacio in addition to the other perversions in this tale. This producer is quite fearless!
Alonso was better off with a prostitute since now he's got two potential psycho women who can mess him up big time. If he is the one who walked into Cecelia's bedroom she will be in big trouble. If it's Mario it will be even worse.
I can't wait to find out later.
Jarifa: I am sick of the whole Magada/Israel story line, what's the point? Talking about pathetic, she is pathetic for putting up with Israel and he is pathetic period.
SpanProf: Cecilia is a damaged and unscrupulous lost soul, I can't feel sorry for her. Yes, she was dealt a bad life when she got the two parents from hell, but to turn around and provoke the deaths of Susana, and now she is asking her father to take care of Lorena? can't feel sorry for her one bit.
I have a feeling that Mauro will have a lot to do with Alonso's house of cards falling. He knows everything, and then some about everyone, all he has to do is open his mouth and Alonso will fall.
Hernan is a likeable character with one flaw, he put his eyes on Cecilia. I like that he too is opening his eyes,and what he sees may be enough to allow him to turn his back on her. We'll see.
Your instinct about Mauro might pay off. Based on observation he is probably the person who knows the most about Alonso right now with Mario running a close second. Omar may be in the early stages of dementia and if so I hope that is disclosed soon. This can deactivate him.
Lorena is playing a dangerous game, she has some power, but not as much as the people she is messing with. She better be careful.
I am all for Ximena and Nayeli, though Nayeli is quite the mess and I shudder to think what Teresa might say if Ximena would come out in any shape, way or form.
It was in Tuesday's episode but I love that Regina also renounced her party and cut all the dead weight. Does this mean that her and Gerardo will start their own party and she will run under it? I hope she moves Alonso out of the way soon too.
As for Hernan, he put his eyes on the wrong woman, but time and time again Cecelia told him to let her go but he refused to do so. He has a lot of fault in whatever he gets involved with as well.
The bar scene was a real treat and Daniela and Regina have easy chemistry, like they've always been friends. Silvia Navarro just seems like a great gal regardless :)
I continue to feel so much pity for Cecelia. She has a conscience but she has grown up around filth and it's hard to move past it. She should have told Regina the truth and then moved away to be free of all of them. As it stands, she had sex with her nephew, ewww.
Maybe Israel and magda are there to show us that everywhere you find those that will take advantage of you, whether they mean to or not, and, if you care, they will take you down with them. At some points you have to cut the toxic cord, especially Magda, who really owes nothing to Israel. If anything, he owes her.
Maybe someone can help because I completely missed it...did Cecelia tell Mauro who she was? I am trying to rack my brain but for the life of me I can't remember this important detail. Please help!
