Regina and Gerardo go on with their conversation on
whether or not they want to be together. Regina thinks they have everything
against them. He moves in for the kiss, but she pulls back…
At the San Roman-Barcenas house, Cecelia debriefs the
remaining two “girls” telling them that none of that has happened and sends
them off. Emiliano is crying like a baby in the corner. Cecelia tells him, “Do
you know what you did? Do you know what happened?” Emiliano says, “Another girl
has died because of me.” Cecelia tells him that this is not like what happened
with Florencia. Emi says, “But I was really just trying to be cool. I never
thought anything like this would happen,” Emi cries. “Well it did happen”, says
Cecelia. “And now we have Alma who is dead now. But now, what we have to do is
get rid of her body.” Emi looks up at her in disbelief. Cecelia says she is
going to call his father and pulls out her phone. “No!” says Emi. “You can’t do
Cecelia says, “I don’t think you understand! This
horrific thing has just happened in the Governor’s home…no…the home of the next
President of Mexico!” She slaps him and calls Alonso. Alonso says to her, “So
did you finally get rid of the prostitutes?” Then Cecelia tells him that there
was an “accident” and one of them died at his house.
Alonso is angry and tells her that he sent her there to
fix things up. Cecelia says that they were all taking drugs and this girl died
from a drug overdose. Alonso puts down the phone, looking shocked.
Teresa tells the doctor not possible and absurd she is
pregnant, but the doctor says that it’s always good news when you find out you
are having a child. She says she doesn’t want to be a boring cow.
At the Barcenas home, the conversation continues: “So you have another family?” says Noemi. “I had one, but
not anymore.” says Mario. “But Cecelia is almost Regina’s age,” says Noemi. Mario
then says, “Oh please, don’t tell me you didn’t know or were suspicious, as
paranoid as you are. But you chose to live with your eyes closed. You know that
if you opened your eyes to all this that you would lose the good life you have
had. I am tired of your suspicions and now that you know the truth, you’ll have
to keep your mouth shut. Remember, nothing has happened.” Noemi cries.
Noemi says, “I don’t know who you are anymore.” “Oh stop
with that, it’s now all in the past.” says Mario. “We have bigger problems on
our hands like that imbecilic Martinez guy with our daughter Regina. I don’t
know how Alonso keeps it all together.” Noemi then says, “I want nothing to do
with your business or your prostitutes!” But Mario reminds her that her good
life was a part of all that “business” and she enjoyed spending the money he
made from it. He goes on to tell her, “If you report any of this to anyone, we
will BOTH be going to prison.” He violently grabs her face and kisses her
forcefully, telling her they are partners in all this. Noemi cries some more.
At Regina’s office, Teresa walks in without knocking. “Hello
love!” she says. Regina asks what she is doing there. Teresa says, “I’m looking
for my husband. I thought I could find him here.” Daniela tells her, “Look you
can see he is not here, so why don’t you just leave.” But Teresa says to
Regina, “Hey, I would just LOVE to talk to you.” Regina and Daniela just look
at each other knowingly and Daniela leaves the office in search of Gerardo.
Teresa smiles at Regina and says, “It’s very important and you are just going
to LOVE it.” Daniela finds Gerardo to give him the heads up. “Your mujer is
over in Regina’s office. Go do something.”
Regina looks at Teresa and tells her she has nothing to
discuss with her. But a smiling Teresa tells her, “Oh we have a lot in common,
kind of like business partners. We are involved with the same man.” Regina asks
her to leave. Then Gerardo comes in and asks what she is doing there. Teresa
says, “It’s because I want to discuss with your lover my great news.” Gerardo
pulls her out of the office. “Enough Teresa! Let’s go!”
At Natalia’s cabin, José brings in some groceries. Then
suddenly, José’s phone rings and it’s his mother. She sounds worried and tells
him to come over right away. Natalia tells him to go take care of his mother.
When José gets to his mother’s place, Omar is there
waiting for him. His mother was nice enough to fix Omar a cup of coffee. She
wants to know what is going on. José tells her to wait in the bedroom he will
explain soon. Omar motions for him to come sit down. “And what are you doing
with my wife?” says Omar.
“Loving her, like you asked me to.” says José
“And why haven’t you told me anything? You work for me
you know and you have to tell me everything. But let’s get to part two of my
plan. I want you to tell Natalia that you are only with her for her money.”
“Sure I’ll tell her that, sir.”
“Tell your mother thank you for the coffee.”
In Alonso’s office, he and Mauro talk about what
happened. Mauro announces he sent the HazMat team to clean up the evidence. He
tells Mauro he doesn’t want any loose ends in this situation. Meanwhile we see
men in hazmat suits cleaning up everything and zipping up the body bag with
Alma in it.
Emi is doing the “boo-hoo, I don’t know what to do now.”
But Cecelia is firm with him, telling him that this is the result of all his
game playing. He says, “Please Cecelia, don’t leave!” But she responds, “Look I
don’t have time for this. I can’t stay around to babysit you and change your
Hector tells Emiliano to get some rest, handing him a
plastic bag full of something illegal looking. (This did not look like your run of the mill OTC help you fall asleep
At the elder San Roman home, Marcia comes in and offers
Omar’s lawyers something. Omar comes in and Marcia goes around the corner
listening to all they are talking about. They inform Omar that Natalia’s legal
team is having him investigated and have found out about his financial
activities in other places. But Omar is not worried, he is not going to give
Natalia one red cent! He is going to see to it that she comes back crawling on
her knees, begging to come back to this house. Marcia looks somewhat disconcerted
at all this. She must know she is being used and is not going to get Omar to
Mario goes to see Lorena Sanchez and tells her that
Larreta is going to cooperate with him and she should be very grateful. Mario’s
phone rings and it’s Larreta. He tells Larreta that he’s with Lorena and she is
very interested in his answer.
Alonso leaves his office while Mauro is telling him that
there is going to be an interview for Regina in the morning. But Alonso tells
Mauro to have Cecelia handle it. He’s going home to his son. A character whose
name I forgot comes over to tell Mauro that it isn’t over yet. They have to
deal with Emiliano’s friends who were there.
Cecelia is at the Caberet having a double whiskey when
Isela comes over. As I said earlier,
Isela is very angry and tells Cecelia to talk to her “governor” because he is
going to have pay dearly for this.
Gerardo has Teresa in the car as he has driven her home,
but she is acting like a giddy girl at first. “What is it Teresa?” “Oh I just
want your attention” says Teresa. She puts her hands on him and literally grabs
him by the balls, hurting him. “These are mine, and no one else’s!” Finally
Gerardo orders her out of the car. “Good night, get out and I’m not playing
Andrés drops by (not knocking of course!) to see Daniela.
“Am I not welcome?” “I’m sorry, I just wasn’t expecting you, and it just wasn’t
a very good day.” says Daniela. “I don’t know what is worse, working here, or working
with my corrupt co-workers” says Andrés. He goes on, “I don’t know what I’m
going to do if you reject me.” He puts his arms around her starts kissing her
and she says she can leave the work for another day. While embraced, he reaches
into his pocket and sticks some sort of device (I assume for recording)
underneath the table. They look really into making out, but Hernán barges in.
He is coming to discuss the interview with Regina. But he says he will be back
in 10 minutes.
Larreta arrives over with where Mario is and Mario asks
if he has done his part. Larreta says it wasn’t easy because Omar is well
connected politically. He wants to know how Lorena is. Mario says she is fine,
but cannot convince her to go back to him.
Iggy and his ex are waiting out to find out where Nayeli
is. Iggy is drunk and they are blaming each other. She says she is going to
bring charges against him for negligence.
Regina arrives home and finds out Emi is in bed early.
She is suspicious and wants to know if everything is alright. She finds Emi in
bed fast asleep, and tenderly lies down next to him. Alonso arrives too after a
few minutes as Regina is lying there. At first he is nice and says he wants to
make amends to save their marriage. She tells him she wants nothing to do with
him because he is the kind of man who sleeps around with every woman he wants
to. And with Cecelia, his actions with her make Regina want to puke. Alonso is
angry, leaves the room and Regina follows him. He goes into some tirade about
her and then tells her she’s spending time with a clown. He violently grabs her
and kisses Regina. But she pulls away and angrily tells him, “Don’t touch me!”
and walks off.
Gerardo keeps calling Ximena but she doesn’t answer. Nayeli
arrives where Ximena is at and Ximena tells Nayeli that everyone is looking for
her and wants to know what happened. She says she is staying with a friend, no
not someone from school. She offers to take Ximena over there. At first Ximena
declines but changes her mind. They arrive at El Chivo’s place and Nayeli
introduces her to him. “Oh I didn’t know you had such beautiful friends,” says El
Chivo. Nayeli tells him to put a sock in it and gets down to business. She says
she wants to move to Barcelona so she can go stay with her aunt. But getting
the papers is very expensive and she needs Ximena to get the money for her. (Don’t fall for it Ximena!
) Ximena says
she will try but she will need time.
José arrives back at the cabin with Natalia. She has a
gift for him but he tells her that he’s there for her, not for her money.
(Exactly the opposite of what Omar told him to say.) Jose says, “I’m going to
stay her for you and take care of you always.” He takes her hand.
Noemi pour herself a glass of whiskey. (Nice mix with the painkillers!
walks in and asks her why she is drinking. Noemi says it’s because she can’t
handle all this truth. “How was it that I was so blind until now that I find
out you have another daughter?” Mario says, “Why is it that you have to make
everything into a melodrama?” Noemi then tells him, “That woman is sleeping
with her own nephew!” Mario just sighs while Noemi says, “I hate you.” But
Mario tells her that he does love her. (This
is what kind of love?
) “I don’t think you know how to love anyone”, says
Noemi. Mario says he made his choice. “Yes, I made a mistake with that woman,
but I can’t say that about my daughter Cecelia because I do love her. I already
know that I hurt you, but if you could only understand and forgive me, not just
for me, but for yourself too. If you continue to harbor this grudge, you are only
going to destroy yourself.” (So what, is Mario playing the good and wise
“I’m already destroyed, Mario.” She puts her glass down.
Mario comes over and tells her that he loves her, but she spits in his face.
Ximena gets home and Gerardo wants to know where she was
at. He tells her he was worried and doesn’t want anything like what has
happened with Nayeli to happen to her. “By the way, have you heard from her?”
Next morning Hernán encounters Carlos, the man who is
about to interview Regina. Then Cecelia shows up with a file to give to him and
Mario and Almirón talk about Nayeli’s and Ximena’s
activities and how they went to El Chivo’s place. Mario says that this is not
going to end well for these girls, but it will work to their advantage.
Carlos starts the video interview with Regina and asks if
she and the governor are getting a divorce. Regina says she does not discuss
her personal life. Carlos the interviewer presses on by saying, “But you are
running for President, your life is no longer private.” Regina says that her
marriage is like many others with problems, but they are trying to decide what
to do. Then he says that the ex-wife of Senator Martinez says that Gerardo and
Regina are having an affair and were recently in a hotel together. Regina
responds by saying, “A lot of people say things without any evidence. Then he presents her with photos of herself
with Gerardo in the restaurant kissing. “So aren’t these photographs sufficient
