La Candidata, Chapter 42: Alonso Uses Emiliano Again!
THe best for me was Mario and Alonso going toe-to-toe, no masks or pretenses. Mario has helped Alonso more than he knew and it's time to pay the piper. Little does Alonso know that Mario, who has been content in the shadows, can do more damage than Omar or him. Mario is right about Omar, he needs to be controlled.
Urban asked a question about time passing and, since Noemi is still wincing in pain, I say this novela does an episode a day, give or take, or it's probably been two or three months since Florencia's death. Man, how quickly things fall apart.
Emiliano is spiraling but at least Regina realizes that they need outside help since Emiliano won't listen to either of them. I had hoped Alonso's talk with Regina was honest but then I remembered it's Alonso and he is only willing to help so that another scandal doesn't hurt his campaign.
So glad that Regina found the cocaine. Alonso was his usual hypocritical self asking Regina if she could not sacrifice anything for her son. Yes, Emiliano does need professional help. It sure took them a long time to get to that decision. While talking about professional help, when is Gerardo going to get some for Ximena?
Great to see Hernán give Cecilia the brush off.
So Teresa's little announcement to Ignacio about the baby being his was to make him feel better some how?
Alonso is clearly on to there being more between Mario and Isela/ CeciliaI cannot wait until he finds out the truth.
Just like it is always about Alonso, it is always about Cecilia.
Ignacio seeing Nayeli's body and screaming was heart wrenching. I wish Teresa would've made the announcement loud enough for Gerardo to hear but alas.
Alsonso thinks it'a all about business, little does he know…I do worry about Emiliano finding out the truth or would they decide it's better to hide it from him?
I don't think Emiliano is ready for the truth. He needs a shrink toute suite. He is desperate for his father's approval in ways he doesn't understand and he needs to know that in the long term he doesn't need it because he needs to be his own person. He needs to become a person who can stand on his own. Regina can help him with that but she can't -- and shouldn't -- baby him.
Just as Gerardo should not do that with Ximena. He does, however, need to keep Teresa away from her.
Ignacio should tell Gerardo about his involvement with Teresa. We're close enough to the end of this that he needs to find out ASAP.
Urban: I do agree Gerardo needs to find out about that baby ASAP, I think a way for this to happen will be thru Andres. If Andres gets his hands on Nayeli's phone. I don't see Ignacio confessing to Gerardo.
And agreed the Hernan/Cecilia seen was funny. I enjoy Hernan being part of the good guys, and telling Cecilia he is not his little toy anymore.
I am curious about Andres, is he a good guy? why did he plant that bug in Regina's office a few episodes back.
And lastly yes, the heart wrenching scene with Ignacio was great, he did a good job portraying the heartbreak a parent must go thru.
I was really shocked by Nayeli's death at the hands of the creep. I was so sure she left that message to Ignacio, hinting she might take her own life. Then as she was skipping down the sidewalk, I realized it was all an act. Still, I wish she hadn't died. Yes, indeedee, someone needs to see the picture on her phone. What if it's Ignacio that gets it back with her personal effects? He certainly wouldn't want it publicized. OTOH, it might prompt HIM to demand a DNA test on the baby. I'm wondering if we are going to have to wait 7 or 8 months of their lives to find out.
I'm being drawn in more and more to Jose and Natalia's relationship. Could they possibly be the only two who end up happy? We know her track record, but this seems different. I don't think they can run away together with Jose's mother. They would have nothing to live on and I don't think Natalia is ready to give up the house and all its contents.
Somehow, I don't feel sorry for Marcia. She let herself be used by Mario for money. She pretended to be in love with Omar for goods and luxury. She woke up to his true nature too late. OTOH, I don't want to see any woman mistreated and we certainly have had mistreatment touch EVERY single woman in this story so far. I guess that is GG's signature touch. How each responds is at the crux of the story.
Anita: Marcia brought this on herself! It's only a matter of time before she joins the growing Body Count.
We're likely to find out 7 to possibly 8 more months before the truth is revealed.
Sandie: I do NOT trust Andres at all!
Teresa just makes me angry! I cannot believe how she waltzes into Ignacio's and tells him not to worry, she has one cooking in the over to replace his dead daughter. Can anyone be more nasty?
So is Omar holding Marcia hostage? I guess he is not going to allow her to leave. She's his prisoner now. She thought she was in for a good time, but it sure didn't turn out that way.
