La Candidata, 8/2/2017 Chapter 37: Teresa is pregnant! (Or one death, two bombs and a baby)
Teresa being pregnant is an absolute disaster and not just for Gerardo. This woman shouldn't be trusted to take care of a goldfish let alone a defenseless baby. Gerardo should demand a DNA test at the earliest possible date (If Law & Order told it correctly they can do a blood test on her at three or four months) because Ignacio had more shots at the target. Who else thinks that she will turn to the bottle if Gerardo is the sperm donor in order to blackmail him into taking her back?
Whomever is the unfortunate man should demand custody.
As soon as I saw the nosy neighbor I knew Natalia's rendezvous with Jose was going to blow up. I'm sure his mother is going to be a casualty before he is.
Do now there is a dead prostitute to deal with as well. Alonso is going to love this... NOT.
The biggie is Noemi being told that Cecelia is Mario's daughter. Let's see how long it takes before Regina knows.
"I am protecting him from his family" Can't Cecelia come up with a better excuse for sleeping with Emiliano?
Why does Hector still have a job? No, why is Hector still alive? He has the sense to rat on Emiliano about Hernan but runs to the party store for a few whores to entertain teenage boys with copious amounts of drugs and chips. What could go wrong?
How is it that everybody knows Mario is a thug except Regina? I know she suspects but my father this and my father that, please.
Tofie, ITA about Cecilia and her stupid excuse for having sex with Emiliano.
I was happy to see that the Uni censors did not cut the Alonso/Cecilia sex scene but they did shorten it so it seemed less brutal than what it was.
Don't people knock on the door? That was weird when the country neighbor just waltzed in with Omar's favorite cake.
I felt sorry for José's mother having to deal with Omar.
At least Noemí is learning what she always wanted to know: the truth.
What will they do with poor Alma?
Probably not. He probably would think it's time Emiliano learned to be a thug like his grandfathers. That would not end well.
The news that Cecelia is Mario's daughter is not likely to be a big surprise to Noemi. However, the incest is a killer of a shock and she should demand a DNA test about this. Alonso's reaction will be interesting.
Might as well start getting those burial plots for Natalia & Jose right now!
SpanProf: The Prostitute got whacked ? Oh well.
Jarifa: What happened to Alma ? What's the number of the Body Count now ?
Well those were two surprises: 1) Mario admitting to Noemi that Cecelia is his daughter. I think he finds it incredulous that Cecelia could be sleeping with Emiliano when she already KNOWS that Emiliano is really her nephew. I don’t think that he thinks she would ever in a million years do that. How wrong he is….
Then there is 2) Teresa getting preggers. Oh that poor conceived baby gestating inside a toxic mother. I would almost say that a miscarriage would be in the works. I could see that happening and then Teresa PRETENDING later to be pregnant the rest of the way through trying to trap Gerardo. And then she would have to steal a baby. But I’m getting carried away here in my vivid imagination. If the pregnancy continues, I’ll bet this baby is Ignacio’s baby, not Gerardo’s.
As for Alma’s accident, Isela is going to be so angry!
Will Hernán report this to the news agencies and will this would be the final thing that puts Alonso’s bid for the presidency in the coffin? I don’t see this going anywhere but bad for Alonso. I guess Hector will now get his pink slip.
So Alonso thinks it’s ok to rape his female employees? I am glad I didn’t see the whole account of that on Unimás. But I got the idea.
Looks like Omar hired the neighbors by the cabin to spy on Natalia. But she needs to be a lot more careful! I hope José is carrying a gun with him at all times.
The prostitute death was not surprising. Another death to add to the already long list but this may lead to bigger revelations at least.
Ximena needs to wake up. Emiliano is bad for her, as messed up emotionally as her, and now things have become even more complicated. Living with Teresa is not the answer either or Gerardo for that matter. She needs to go on a long trip and fix herself before she tries to help anyone.
Regina and Gerardo's back and forth is getting tiresome. Regina doens't seem to be as into it as he does and I would also like to see Regina go off on her own and become President, if it came to that.
As for Mario, I think he's tired of living with secrets and Noemi is the perfect confessor. She's like a priest without a rope...she knows all his secrets but won't reveal them because of his threats. She knows the consequences and would need become really brave in order to say anything.
Alonso is a pig. Of course he would think rape is okay. Cecelia is his...he can do as he pleases.
Teresa, just go away and jump in a hole. Poor baby that has to have her as a mother because Ximena has already suffered enough for all of them.
Isela is still the worst. She will cheer and dance on anyone's grave.
Natalia kissing Jose in front of the curtain-less picture window right after Nosy Neighbor just walks into her house and then stepping out on the porch and doing it again ...
Omar bringing "his miner" to his home and messing around on the couch where anyone (wife, son, bodyguards) can walk in ('cause nobody knocks in this TN) ...
Regina and Gerardo (two obviously high-profile politicians, one of whom is married) walking around town holding hands and stepping onto an open-air gazebo and making out (a few episodes back) ...
Regina setting up a lovers' rendezvous at a five-star hotel and registering UNDER HER OWN NAME ...
Regina and Gerardo passionately kissing like overheated teenagers in his window-walled office with OPEN blinds where his crazy ex and pouty kid keep popping in ...
They all deserve to get caught in the act and suffer the consequences ... common sense, people, use common sense!
Anon 5:42 completely agree with your comments, I have thought about that before, everyone is so careless and asking to get caught. Especially dirty old man, but I think he wants to get caught because his ego gets bigger as his balls get smaller.
Alfredo: I agree about Regina having to concentrate on winning the presidency and leaving everything else for later. If Gerardo is still there good, if not also good.
I am so tired of saying it but Emi is the biggest loser!!!! I can't defend him using the bad parents excuse anymore. He is an adult, and his mother has tried to show him right from wrong. He has chosen to follow in his father's footsteps. I sure hope he gets some jail time for causing Alma's death.
My favorite scene this episode was when Rita comes to tell Mario that Cecilia came by, and he says, why didn't you tell me and she replies "I did not know I was supposed to tell you" I chuckled. For a dark TN that is as light as it gets.
My least favorite...well let's not get into that there were so many bad things happening. Bad in a good way I guess, because I am ready for more.
