Enamor谩ndome de Ram贸n, #10, Aug. 21, 2017: The Breathless and the Beaten

Here is the recap, courtesy of RGVChick :)

[Previously: After Ram贸n arrives, he listens as Fabiola tells Juana that she is going to prove to everyone how responsible she can be. Fit to be tied, Ram贸n calls her on it and asks for how long鈥ust long enough for his mother to turn over the million pesos? When Fabiola questions what鈥檚 wrong with him, Ram贸n reveals that he overheard her little plan to work just until she can convince Juana that she is worthy of handling the money.] Francisco chimes in and asks Ram贸n, 鈥淲ho do you think you are?鈥 to which Ram贸n replies, 鈥淛uana鈥檚 son! The one they want to fool so they can get the money!鈥 Juana asks Fabiola to confirm what Ram贸n stated; and when Fabiola doesn鈥檛 respond, she looks questioningly at Andrea, then Fabiola. Juana takes Fabiola into the kitchen so they can talk privately. While they鈥檙e in the kitchen, Ram贸n and Francisco get into it. Francisco doesn鈥檛 want Ram贸n to defy his girlfriend, but Ram贸n refuses to allow anyone to mess with his mother鈥r Francisco will truly know who Ram贸n is. When Ram贸n sees Andrea hold back Francisco and motion him to stop, he backs off and apologizes to Andrea saying that he has no reason to be arguing with the Francisco in her house. Andrea nods.

Enamor谩ndome de Ramon, Cap铆tulo 9; Friday, August 18, 2017: Fabiola and Ram贸n get to work together!

We left off yesterday with Fabiola announcing to Ram贸n that she is the owner and wants to know what he is doing there. Ram贸n is a bit confused and turns to Dalia and says, 鈥淲hy didn鈥檛 you tell me this?鈥 So Fabiola goes on to explain that since her father passed away, she is taking his place. As she is throwing her weight around, her uncle Antonio comes up and wants to know what is going on.
Dalia explains that she was talking to Ram贸n about the mechanic job there when Fabiola so rudely interrupted and said that she was the new boss. Antonio turns to Fabiola and Fabi tries to explain that her father left his half of the business to her and Andrea. Antonio says, 鈥淣o one is saying anything to the contrary. But first we need to discuss this.鈥 He takes her aside so they can talk elsewhere. Ram贸n then turns to Dalia and says that maybe he can find work somewhere else, but she pleads with him to wait and find out what Antonio has to say first. Obviously no one seems to like it how Fabiola just muscled her way into the situation without notice.

La candidata Friday 8/18/17 Cap铆tulo 49: An Attempt is Made on Emiliano's Life--OR--When Does a Death Threat Become Just an "Expression"?

Outside of Regina's office--Lorena is leaving. Mario happens to see Lorena and asks Daniela what that woman was doing there. Daniela tells him she wanted to see Regina and adds that Lorena has no shame. In no time flat, Mario is on the phone to one of his goon-guards and tells him that Lorena is leaving the building. He wants her followed and wants to know about all of her movements.

At Regina's/Alonso's House--Alonso has awakened a beast in Regina with his threat. She is over the top and rightfully so. She did not know that he was capable of killing her. Alonso tries to write it off in his usual arrogant casual way by saying it was just an "expression". Regina is not buying it. She invites him to kill her right then and there. She is not afraid. A completely exasperated Alonso goes on about her scaring Emiliano with jail and how he would never survive a place like that. She needs to realize that. He is begging her. She asks if he is trying to convince her. Of course he is! Is he trying to improve things between them by threatening to kill her? She doesn't know what is happening to him.

Mauro's office--Sandoval, Regina's lawyer, is visiting with Mauro. The lawyer makes it clear that he will not be treated as "second class" to anyone. A pay-off won't do it. If Alonso makes him the minister of the Supreme Court of the land the day he takes office, he can count on his assistance. Mauro tells him that will be impossible. Well, it will also be impossible for Sandoval then to stop advising Regina.

La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo (LDVDEC) #71 (Part 2) 8.18.17: All Well's That Ends Well (Barely)...

At the risk of sounding too much like our dearly beloved Regia, I want to say a few words as this tale draws to a close, for some, myself included.

I want to thank Diana, Susanlynn and Kirby for getting this patio going over at Vino as I had no plans to watch Doble Vida but ended up doing so because of you three. It has been a fun ride and I loved how great the story and patio turned out to be, despite my initial reservations.

I also to thank Vivi, who provided the first recap for us. You are solely missed and hope you come back soon 馃槉.

Julie, RGVChick, and Adriana, thank you so much for your help recapping this novela and a big thank you to Julie, for recapping three to four nights in my absence. Anita, thank you as well for your guest recaps, they were wonderful. In case, some of you didn鈥檛 know, this was RGV鈥檚 first recapping duty and she knocked it out of the park, no? 馃槈 Adriana, you have your own little Paloma but you took the time during your busy schedule to help us out any way you could. Thank you.

And finally, thank you to the loyal commentors and followers in this patio. None of this would be possible (or as enjoyable) without you. I thank you all for your kind words, insightful comments and logical deductions (which was solely lacking in DV). See you in the next one! :D


Now, without further ado, Barfest Part 2 (aka El Grand Final!)

Weekend Discussion: Karmegeddon in the Capital: La Candidata


Throughout history there have been many career politicians since Roman times. Some become such because of a need to serve their people and others only for the power it gives them. They often visit the same sick need for power over the people in their private lives.

Those who abuse the trust of the people deserve the worst punishment available. The only problem is that sometimes it is difficult to determine what that is: Should sociopaths like these be executed, locked away, or is there a worse fate in our time? 聽I ask you all:

What do you think the writers have done to them and 鈥
If you could decide their fate, what would it be?

Here is the recap, courtesy of RGVChick:

[Repeated scene: Juana lashes at Hortensia that she has no right to run her off, but Hortensia can鈥檛 wait to tell her granddaughters what Juana is doing here. Hortensia blasts away telling Fabiola and Andrea that they need to run Juana off. Fabiola doesn鈥檛 understand why, so Hortensia explains that no one knows what schemes Juana used to bamboozle her father and now she鈥檚 setting her eyes on Julio.] Hortensia alerts them to the fact that Julio was there and they didn鈥檛 even know it. Juana tries to explain that Julio was only there to see how the girls were doing, but Fabiola questions why Juana didn鈥檛 tell them. Juana clarifies that they were still asleep and she didn鈥檛 want to wake them. She points out that she only offered Julio a cup of coffee, just as she would when her bosses were alive. After Hortensia chides Juana for running the house as if it were her own and orders her to get her things and leave, Fabiola stands up for Juana and tells Hortensia that they have their differences, but Juana need not leave just because she offered Julio breakfast. Hortensia can鈥檛 accept that Fabiola is allowing Juana to run the house as if it were her own, so Fabiola notes that it鈥檚 not the first time someone comes to the house without them knowing. Hortensia is chagrined that Juana already has fooled the girls and warns them that they have no idea what Juana is capable of doing to them.

La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo, #68, Mon Aug 14, 2017: Someday a Real Rain Will Come and Wash All This Scum off the Streets

Alt title: Pennies from Heaven

BunMan holds a gun on Estela and says he couldn't wait for her to spring him out of the pokey because someone tried to kill him. "Why aren't you glad to see me? Did you forget our promise to be together forever?" She answers that he broke that promise when he tried to kill her.

Flashback! Estela and BunMan are at the chapel, dressed for a wedding. He warns that the police are getting close to finding El Dorado. She's going to let Ryan think she escaped from El Dorado. BunMan asks what she will say when Ryan asks who El D is; Estela waves this off impatiently, but obviously doesn't have a plan. She tells BunMan to get out of there before Ryan arrives and calls the police.

But BunMan doesn't want to leave. "I might not see you again." Estela dismisses this; she'll go looking for him later. It might be a good idea to wait for a while, though. BunMan asks if she's taking that trip with Ryan after all. Exasperated, she tells BunMan to go so she can call Ryan.

She takes out her phone - whoa, does her wedding gown have pockets? - and calls Ryan. (We shouldn't be able to see Ryan and Laura with their car in Estela's flashback, but we do.) Estela whines that she's escaped from El Dorado. BunMan looks on with growing anger as she sweet-talks Ryan and asks him to pick her up so they can be together. He grabs her, and they struggle briefly before the call is cut off.

La doble vida de Estela Carillo, #67, Friday, 08/11/17 Is Ryan very smart or just a sickening kind of stupid?




Since I have no way of knowing the differences between the Uni and the Mexico version, I'll just recap everything that I saw (I think it's the original episode that aired).聽
My thoughts about Ryan are in italics.
Estela and Ryan are reminiscing about their plan to go to a Paradise Island in Brasil back in the day. She is laying it on very thick, diabetes patients be warned: nobody ever loved her like he did, nobody ever made her feel like he did etc etc...聽
Ryan flinches - did she ever fall for ED?
No, never, he held her captive, how could she when all she dreamed about was to return to him. Ryan can't help but think about it, but the accusation makes her furious, she'd like to forget all about it. Ryan doesn't understand, since just days before she was scared out of her mind. Yes, but staying scared won't help her heal, she needs to move forward.聽
Kissy faces, but Ryan rejects her eventually, saying that passion is all good and swell, but this time around he won't do the same mistake, he wants something that lasts. So off to bed he goes. No sex for Estella tonight.

Regina's house--Regina is with Gerardo and suddenly Emiliano cannot be found. Nobody saw him leave. Gerardo will help her look but where? Regina decides to go to Cecilia's.

Ceciia's apartment--Emiliano has gone indeed to Cecilia's and he walks in on Cecilia and his father having sex. (Unim谩s censors cut this scene that was pretty tame and only a few seconds long) Alonso is oblivious to Emiliano's presence but it seems that Cecilia might have caught a glimpse of him before he bolts down the stairs and out of the apartment. The slam of the door distracts Alonso and he wonders what that noise was. Cecilia asks Alonso if he left the door open. No, he doesn't think so. Cecilia quickly runs down the stairs but sees nothing.

At the hospital--Mario comments to Hern谩n that he didn't know that he had changed professions. Besides being a mediocre journalist, he is trying to be a policeman. Mario has no reason to answer Hern谩n. Hern谩n wonders if Mario will feel the same way after Almir贸n gives his statement to the police about all of the crimes he has committed. Suddenly the elevator doors open and a couple of detectives arrive with a few uniformed police officers. A couple of doctors immediately start talking to them.

Playing with the Mexican and US flags on his desk, Danilow tells Horacio that he's bummed that they're making all of this money from the private concerts, but don't get to keep any of it because they have to give it all to gangsters. He is fed up. Horacio reminds him that Asdr煤bal is keeping the money for now, and they need to pay Marcelino; eventually they'll get their money back.

Danilow has a great idea: they can get Estela to tell them who El Dorado is, and get their money back from him. Horacio warns him that he always gets into a mess because he doesn't think things through. Danilow accuses Horacio of not knowing how to "smell the business" (giggle). Horacio replies, "What I smell is that they're going to shoot us." Danilow asks Horacio to get Marcelino to give them a couple more days.

Laura calls Chava from outside Ryan's apartment. She insists that she is sure (about Estela being El Dorito). Laura has sent Chava a photo of the lock on Ryan's door and wants his advice on how to pick/bust it. Chava asks why she didn't call him to come help her, and suggests that she look for a hidden key. (You'd think she would have tried that first.) She remembers where Ryan keeps his extra key and finds it. Once she is inside, Chava urges her to get out, but she won't turn back now.

La Candidata Martes 8/8/17 Chapter 41: Mario Explodes In Front of Cecelia


Chapter 41: Mario Explodes In Front of Cecelia

The world has very little love to offer. I often think that some people actively avoid it because they see weakness in it. The weakness is in their inability to be strong in the face of real adversity, when those they love are threatened. They push them away in the name of power or social position. The smart ones who make this mistake live to regret this while the others are content with shallow satisfactions achieved through nefarious plots. The political forum is the main arena for this.
D.D.

Omar entered the bedroom suddenly, catching Marcia on her cell phone. She ended the call quickly and told him she was talking to her mother. She sarcastically asked whether that was forbidden. Strangely, he did not snatch the phone out of her hand to examine it. She left the room.

La candidata Friday 8/4/17 Chapter 39: Teresa Will Ruin Gerardo's Life--OR--Isela Fights for Her Own--OR--Ximena Confronts "No Exit"

Regina's office-- The interview from hell goes on. Regina takes and explains the photos by saying that it is common for senators to get together to discuss policy issues. Regina sees the real problem being the interviewer's intention with asking about the photos. The next thing she knows the interviewer is asking about the relationship Regina had with Gerardo way back in college. At this point, Gerardo is watching the interview in his office and Teresa is watching and even baiting Regina as she sits in her kitchen. Regina considers Gerardo a friend and a person with whom she shares the same political values. The next tactic the interviewer uses is saying that Regina had presented herself as a defender of women along with the support of her husband and son until this change. "What change?" asks Regina. She goes on about being a dedicated mother always concerned about her son. Whoopsie: She hasn't mentioned her husband. The next question is if Regina is getting a divorce. Regina tries to skirt the issue saying that that is her private life. The interviewer explains that when she is running for president that is no longer true. The people want to know. A very tired but still pleasant Regina explains that divorce is an option for couples that cannot find another way to solve their problems. Cecilia is watching, too, and smiles at that comment. Regina continues that before getting to that decision, couples must exhaust all possibilities to try to solve their problems. The final question is if she Regina is personally in favor of divorce as a last resort. Regina answers that she is. Alonso is watching in his car and tells his driver that his wife just sunk herself all on her own.

La Candidata, 8/2/2017 Chapter 37: Teresa is pregnant! (Or one death, two bombs and a baby)


At Alonso鈥檚 office he asks Omar what he has done with Lorena Sanchez, Omar explains that they just took her in order to get all the incriminating evidence she has on them. Alonso seems appalled (only because he didn鈥檛 think of it himself). Since Alonso resists the idea of doing something to Larreta, Omar says 鈥渇orget about it鈥 a la Donnie Brasco he will take care of Larreta himself.
Alonso says 鈥測ou will not do anything鈥 and Omar responds that Alonso will not tell him how to handle his business.Mauro interjects that they should find solutions instead of arguing. Alonso agrees, and surprisingly so does Omar. He says that the campaign is going to hell and it鈥檚 all because Alonso could not control Regina. Especially because she found out about the other woman (well at least about one of the women). Alonso says that 鈥渢his is precisely why they can鈥檛 make Lorena disappear, Regina would be the first to suspect鈥 Alonso then says that they think carefully what they are going to do next.
