El Color de la Pasion #98 (#97 Hulu/Uni), January 30, 2017: Sin Wagon


To quote Rafiella, from this episode: "La vida nos cobras nuestros pecados" - "Life charges us our sins." (Thank you Daniel!) In this episode, we find that some of the characters are about to have some secrets come home to roost...

(By the way, Vivi swapped with me for last Thursday's show - Thank you Vivi!)

Vino el Amor, Lunes 1/30/17 Chapter 64: Out of the Mouths of Babes, II


Graciela came back for Bobby, whom she had spotted on the floor of the Marital Shrine when he had been hiding under the bed. She grabbed him when he tried to bolt and he told her quite vociferously he did not want to be sent to a boarding school.

Luciana wondered why Bobby ran off. David wondered whether the ceremony had been bad for him, but that didn't seem the case. They had asked workers whether they had seen the boy and David was feeling like an idiot. He thought about when he walked off with Graciela when Bobby had wanted to play and felt worse.

A que no me dejas Episode 98 (1.30.17) In Dejaland, lies are blatantly suffocating any remaining hint of a speck of precious scarce truth.

"Between yesterday and tomorrow there is more than a day,
between truth and lies, between true and false, there is also the "alternative facts" 


Deceit

Valentina has been flashbacking for the whole weekend. She thinks about serial liar René and all their memories together rush back to her head. Oh, if she could turn back time!

Meanwhile, in the Murat residence, Micaela helps Raquel getting dressed to go to the foundation and Raquel wants her gray tahitian pearls but the little red jewelry box, along with all the other jewel boxes, are completely empty. Alzheimer is probably making her forget that she has forgotten where she put them last time she used them, or maybe Mr. Gonzalo have them in the safe- Anyway. 
-Tomorrow we can ask Florencia the nurse- says Mica. 
-Yes. In this house nobody steals. 
-No, no that I know of.

By the fountain, Nuria and Chelo argue about Tobías. Nuria came to get some documents and didn't miss the chance to hurt Consuelo emotionally. Chelo only wants her to leave her boy alone. Nuria blackmails her throwing half of Schrodinger's cat out of the box.

-If you convince Micaela to tell me what I want, what a really really want, to know, I will leave your son alone!
-And what is that you want to know so badly? -asks the maid.
-Find out! Tell me and I will do as you wish. I swear!
I didn't get to see her fingers, but I am sure she had them crossed.

Upcoming Telenovelas: Jan/Feb 2017: What’s Happening Now; What’s Coming Soon?

Amigos,

There are a few changes coming to primetime telenovelas. Here’s a rundown of what’s happening now on Telemundo, Univision and Unimás, and what’s coming soon. Feel free to share any intel in the comments. 

Univision:

Despertar Contigo sprints to its finish. Its final week’s episodes will be shown in 2-hour slots, 7pm-9pm, this whole week. After that, Univision does NOT seem to be in any hurry to bring in another 8pm telenovela, and instead will run the new season of its kids’ talent show, Pequeños Gigantes (the original version of Little Bigshots shown on NBC that’s hosted by Steve Harvey).  

Vino el Amor, currently in the 9pm slot, is doing so well in Mexico, it’s been extended. Let’s hope it continues to heat up on the vineyard, and we soon learn why the Mexican audience wanted another serving of vino. So far, this wine has mainly been making us sleepy.

El Color de la Pasión is in its final weeks in the 10pm slot. After moving along at a rapid clip for 80+ episodes, it’s hit a lull before what’s sure to be an exciting final few weeks.

Telemundo:

La Fan recently started in the 8pm slot, and so far is a very enjoyable comedic telenovela, worthy of the talents of its leading lady, Angélica Vale (La Fea Mas Bella). It’s a fun look at the lives of telenovela actors and their fans, and perfect for anyone looking for a light comedy with heart. La Fan is only two weeks in, so it won’t be hard to catch up!

El Color de la Pasión #97, (96 on hulu)

Ok,  guys, they finally posted the episode, so here's the recap.

Bullet points today, sorry it’s late, but the blame is on Hulu.

*Aída Lugo makes her entrance to the story, She won’t say if she’s the woman that had affair with Marcelo’s father, I suspect that Momster hasn’t been completely honest about what his father did and didn’t do. She tells Marcelo it was a pleasure to meet him, in a meaningful way. Hmmm. 
The friend of Aída asked who that guy was, she tells him the son of Cristóbal Escalante. Apparently he looks just like his father.

Vino el Amor - Episode #63-Friday 1/27/2017: Esta Historia te Atrapa--and How

We’re as trapped as those poor undocumented border crossers Juan has. We might have more fun on a scavenger hunt game, cruising the aisles of the nearest Wall*Verdes browsing the shelves hunting for all the products they advertise on Vino.
 
[Some scenes have been combined.]
Ni modo—Here is Lo De Ayer
Graciela, in her slinky, low-cut, spaghetti-strap, black cocktail pants suit, tomato red lips and golden locks slimes her spit all over David’s 10 o’clock shadow. It looks as though he might be leaning in to kiss her, but maybe he just lost his balance. Gracie pulls away and apologizes. His clear blue eyes look after her with interest as she walks away.
 
Meanwhile Perla and Juan spit at each other over their next steps in the police-human trafficking net closing in on them. Juan has changed his mind. He’s staying. Perla says he can’t do that to her. If he turns chicken like his little friend Mark, she’s going to send him packing. Juan takes that as a threat. If she doesn’t like how things are, she can take a hike right now herself. She whirls and leaves. Juan sits down in a thinking man’s pose as his world collapses on him. He knows it, too.

A Que No Me Dejas (AQNMD) #97. Friday January 27, 2017. My Action Jackson Is Out Of Action And You Deserve A Real Man. 'K? See Ya!

At Hotel Mauva, René rages in his room about the punch Mau gave him, but he vows to pay the “maldito sordo” back by “destroying his little sister’s heart”. As if invoked by this cruel threat, Valentina sends a text inviting Eugenio to dinner tonight at Casa Murat to meet Fernanda’s boyfriend, Alan. Citing a splitting migraine, he declines Vale’s invitation but keeps blowing smoke up her proverbial: Mi amor this, Te amo that. René is incensed that his younger brother has betrayed him by siding with their father. In any event, he’s intent on hiding out in his room until he hears back from The Gonz regarding the shares. This little love game with his niece is going to prove very profitable and René relishes that thought.

Mau is back in his office with Alexis. He is so overwhelmed by fury and indignation, he can’t bring himself to stand still. Alexis tells him he must calm down if he doesn’t want Valentina to find out the awful truth about Eugenio. This remark seems to conjure up Valentina who wonders why both guys are soaking wet and what happened to Mau’s face. Mau says he slipped (resbalarse) on the boat and hit his jaw. Vale announces she has a surprise for him: It’s your childhood buddy, Alan! Mau greets him with a wide grin and a giant bearhug that lifts him off the floor. Cue the happy flashbacks of their time together as kids.

El Color de la Pasión #96 (Uni/Hulu #95), 1/26/17: The Ghost of Lovers Past

Lucia breaks off the kiss with Roman and asks him for more time. This should be yet another BIG red sign to Roman that he is nothing more than a rebound, but he soldiers on. He tells Lucia she can have as much time as she needs (as long as that time is no longer than a week, I’m sure), but he has one condition—that they spend that time TOGETHER. Lucia agrees, and they get back to drinking their pre-dinner wine.

Sara rips into Leti for sharing her personal business with Ric that she was sick. He waltzed right into her bedroom, like he owned the place! Leti thinks he was just being nice, but Sara makes it clear that she and Ric will never, ever be friends. “Well, your friend Magdalena doesn’t feel the same.” Leti spills about the tryst in the park she just spied between Ric and Magda. Sara definitely knows what that was about.

Vino el Amor, Jueves 1/26/17 Chapter 62: Tears for Fears


Just the facts:

Miguel, and Tano arrived at the Susan and Mark encounter; some threats were made and Mark tried to throw Susan under the bus for the benefit of the crowd. César arrived with the lawyer, then the police came. Mark ran. One cop told Susan she would need to go to the station to make a statement. They went to do so.

Juan panicked about the two investigations; Mark called him to tell him the police are now also after him about Susan and he needs to split the scene.

A Que No Me Dejas #96: Children Will Always Pay for the Sins of Their (Grand)Fathers

***This episode was pre-empted by the orange dream machine (-.-) for the east and central coast but not the west coast. Hulu has posted the episode so I assume that means it aired as scheduled in all time zones as scheduled afterwards. I watched this episode online though because I didn’t want to run the risk of not being able to do the recap on my usual day. Please fill in any blanks/scenes I may have missed as the video was skipping. Thanks and enjoy!***

Gonzalo tells Rene that he’s the scum of the earth and grabs his neck. He throws him against the counter and calls him Rene for the first time since he was a child. Reguenio is obviously shocked but Gonzalo is not going to stop. He asks him if he thought he wouldn’t discover his lies. He asks him how he dared to lie to him and wants him out of his life and Valentina’s and slaps him across his smug face. Reugenio calls him father and Gonzalo is taken aback. Reguenio wonders how he found out because it’s not easy pretending to be someone else and it’s very tiring but he had a good teacher in him nonetheless. He remembers when Gonzalo used to lie to them about his business trips and how he lied to him when Reguenio found out he was married, how he pretended to be divorced and then married Monica. Gonzalo pleads for him to stop but Reguenio is done pretending. He tells Gonzalo that he was able to lie because he learned it all from him and how dare he be disappointed in him when the student has clearly surpassed the master. Gonzalo sits down and begins to breathe heavily; he can’t take all this truth at once.

Tobias strolls into the kitchen and the kitchen trio rips into him as well. They want to know where h was all day and Tobias is honest for once: he was with Nuria all day. Chelo reminds him that they didn’t want him near her but Tobias tells them that he doesn’t care; he loves her and wants to spend time with her. Beto warns him to go to his room and not come out. Tobias tells him that he’s glad he’s grounded, that way he doesn’t have to go on their fishing trip but Beto will not allow him to get out of it. He’s going to that trip whether he likes it or not. Tobias storms out and Chelo wonders what Nuria tells him so he loves her so much. Just then the phone rings and Micaela answers. It’s Nuria, who warns Micaela that she will make sure Tobias doesn’t return home next time if she doesn’t tell her where she left her child. She then hangs up and Micaela tells Beto and Chelo that it was a wrong number.

Repeated scene: Gutierrez comes over to the employees house to talk to Marta, but Marta is livid and does not want anything to do with him. She says to “get the hell out of my home!” León arrives with Miguel and León is like, “let me at him!” and tries to go after Gut but Miguel holds him back. Gutierrez finally leaves and Marta, Luciana, and León huddle together trying to comfort Marta. Luciana tells Miguel she needs to go talk to David. Mig says, “Why don’t I go talk to him and you can stay here with your mom?” But Luciana explains that since this really is about her work visa, she needs to go and explain what happened, since she angrily threw the visa paperwork back over at Gutierrez when she was so angry. Luciana goes out the door and Miguel brings something to eat for Marta to try to cheer her up.

El Color de la Pasión (ECDLP) #95. Wednesday January 25, 2017. Can’t We Be Sweethearts? Why Don’t We Fake-Fall In Love?

Sara describes to Magdalena, in copious detail, how and why Alonso died believing that Rebeca had caused Adriana’s death. Tricky Ricky may be a lying conniving piece of dookie but, in this instance, his story totally checks out. Sara found a hospital log sheet that corroborates his version of events. At this stage of the game, Clara’s testimony is crucial in helping Puebla’s haphazard collection of amateur Columbos nail Rebeca. Magdalena is shocked witless and shaken to the core. She wishes Sara had never told her any of this.

Dr. Román Andrade is happy he no longer has to Bug-A-Boo Lucía or pretend to be her paño de lágrimas (shoulder to cry on) in order to get to fondle her at will. So happy, in fact, that he’s thinking about remodeling his drab office and jazzing it up with loud splashes of color. Hopefully, his dull, frumpy, uncharismatic self gets a makeover as well. He’s ready to start a new chapter in his life but Lucía doesn’t seem to be on the same wavelength just yet. Still, he will keep insisting and will not give up (no quitar el dedo del renglón). If the Lucía thing doesn’t work out, his married receptionist can be easily convinced to ditch her husband for him. All she needs is a nudge.

El Color de la Pasion #94: The Truth Is Still Not Ready For Prime Time

Ok.  We pick up where Nora has just tried to make another “statement” about unrequited love gone wrong by running in front of an unsuspecting motorist to off herself, thus laying another major guilt trip on poor Marcelo.   Viewerville, I must admit, has more sympathy for the driver than for nasty Nora.  The only up side in this is that she regains consciousness and rather than take her in an ambulance, they risk paralyzing her by putting her in Marc’s jeep and driving her to the emergency room that way.  Once there she’s got some bad scrapes and sprains, but nothing more.

At Leti and Sara’s, Dr. Sara admits she misses Alonso a bunch and claims that Rebeca Murillo is a monster and never should he have married his wife’s sister.

Our other villains provided some fears, some jeers and some sneers, when not partying or plotting! Oh and David and Cesar had one of their Girl Talk sessions and David did the mannequin challenge.

A Que No Me Dejas (AQNMD) #94. Monday January 23, 2017. No Huckle Buckle, Baby... The Little Guy Is Shy!

The Gonz refuses to accept that his daughter is a killer. He fears (temer) that reopening the investigation would make Nuria stand out (relucir) as a prime suspect. However, at the same time, he refuses to betray Alfonso, his late lamented compadre, by burying the whole thing. Osvaldo has a suggestion that could help The Gonz determine whether Nuria is the red-clad murderess without involving the police, for now. He recommends Evaristo Guerrero, an ex-policeman and current private eye, to investigate the “second shooter” lead.

Nuria enjoys some post-nookie spooning with her toyboy naco mechanic. She wants to dispel her boyfriend’s jealousy by making him meet Tobías tomorrow. Félix, who has been pretending for a while now that he doesn’t know Tobías, weasels his way out of it by invoking urgent mechanic business that requires his attention first thing in the morn. Besides, he trusts that Nuria considers him her favorite (consentido), just like she is his consentida. Nuria doesn’t want to be his favorite; she wants to be his one and only. “Because I’m the only one, right?” “¡Clarín cornetas! (A colorful way of saying “¡Claro!”, which literally translates as: “Bugle horns!”) Sure thing! There’s nobody like you!” he assures her. “Do you really find me attractive?” wonders Nuria. “¡Simón! (Nacospeak for “¡Sí!”, though it scores lower on the Nacometer than “¡Simona la mona!”, i.e. “Simona the monkey”). Yes, I do!” Félix starts a second round of rumpy pumpy just to shut Nuria up.

El Color de la Pasión #93 (Uni/Hulu #92), 1/23/17: Forgive Me Father, But I HATE That Murdering, Conniving Beyotch!

The Old:
-Mario tells Magda that he loves her and she’s all he needs—kids or no kids.
-Lucia makes Nora happy by telling her she went out to eat with Roman. Nora then shares the gossip that Alfredo is an old acquaintance of Rebeca’s.
-Rebeca admits to Alfredo her sick jealousy of her sister Adriana, and her even sicker game of abusing her name.

The New:
Rebeca tries to use her feminine wiles on Alfredo, to distract him from the fact that she just admitted to being a perverse, cheating succubus, who has used and sullied her dead sister’s name to troll for men for over two decades. She slithers up to him, and drapes herself on him. “If I had stayed with you, and not returned to Puebla, my life would have been very different. I could never forget you.”

A plea from your blog mom: support the Dream Act

Hello friends,

I am still waiting for a good comedy to come along to get back into the fray here at Caray Caray but meanwhile I have a plea...

I don't ask you for much, do I? You get this blog for free, right? So give me a hand here.

I read this article:

Whatever Trump does, Dreamers likely to be deported soon

and I wept. I am close to the Hispanic community here in Chapel Hill, NC. I have been mentoring a Dreamer since she was just a tiny, frightened undocumented child brought here by her parents when she was one year old. As a nine year old she knew she had to keep this terrible secret or her family could lose their tiny foothold in this country. I saw pictures of where she came from. It was a barren desert.

She is now just one year away from getting a good nursing degree. Does the US need kind, intelligent, bilingual nurses? You bet it does. She is a rock of a person, she'll do this world a lot of good. But if she gets deported it's all for nothing.

I hate to think that the Dreamers' registry could end up being an easy way for legislators to pick out and throw away the young people who had enough faith to apply.

PLEASE write, tweet, facebook your senators about the Dream Act. I've been told there's a huge fight brewing and we should be in it.

Click below to find your senators and their contact information. Tell your friends! Thanks.

Senators of the 115th congress

El Color De La Pasion #92 (Hulu #91): Dinner Dates & Past Affairs

Marcelo promises a comatose Daniela that he will be at her side as long as she needs her and gives her a kiss on the forehead.

Rebeca walks into her off and gets into a shouting match with Nora. She demands know why no one tells her anything, ever, including the fact that Lucia is now working at Talavera Gaxiola. Rebeca explains that she was already working there but Nora tells her it’s different. She’s now there full time, doing important things and no one ever asks her to do important things. Rebeca wants to know what she wants and Nora tells her that she needs to take care of her interests. Rebeca tells her that she can do the job as Lucia does but she needs to prepare herself and she doesn’t want her near Rodrigo. Nora tells her she’ll think about it and Rodrigo is the last person she wants in her life.

Lucia gets to her closet of an office (la pobre) and sees working clearing out the mess. Rodrigo explains that he asks several workers to help clear it out but Lucia tells them that it’s not necessary. When they’ve left, she goes off on Rodrigo but he tells her that he’s only trying to help and proposes that she occupy his office in the mean time. Lucia makes it clear that he’s only making her uncomfortable and needs to stop trying to help her. Rodrigo tells her that she doesn’t have to be so mean to him because she’s having problems with Marcelo; he’s already paid his debt for all he did to her.

Leti is having lunch with Sara. She tells her that she’s going to confess her feelings to Sergio today if he doesn’t make a move since they have an unexpected close encounter yesterday. She then inadvertently tells Sara that she had seen Ricardo yesterday as well because she wanted to inquire about Daniela. Sara is taken aback but doesn’t mind and tells Leti that Daniela is doing better. Leti tells her that Ricardo is no longer with Daniela and then explains that she asked Ricardo if he ever loved Sara. He couldn’t answer because Amador came. Leti then asks Sara if she ever loved Ricardo and Sara confesses that she did. She fell deeply in love with him after she graduated but stopped the relationship when she found out that he was engaged with Magdalena. When she found out she was pregnant, he had already left Magdalena at the altar and disappeared so she couldn’t tell him. Leti then asks what she would do if he wanted to be with her again and Sara laughs it off. She only thinks about Alonso Gaxiola, that’s why it’s her destiny to be alone.

El Color de la Pasión, #91 (Hulu/Uni #90), 1/19/17: Rod the Spy

We haven’t heard from dy77 today yet, so here’s a quick and dirty recap from me for yesterday’s episode. -Vivi

Marcelo breaks up with Lucia “for good” because he now believes he is the cause of every bad thing that has happened to Lucia, Puebla, Mexico City, and the world.

Lucia has a good weep about Marcelo and is consoled by Magdalena. Nazario also has a chat with Lucia and Marcelo about the silly reasons for their breakup. Both Magda and Naz believe they are reacting rashly, and Naz just doesn’t understand young people these days who give up so easily on love. Whatevs! Everyone has more important things to worry about (like, if Rebe killed Al), other than Lucia and Marcelo’s relationship, including Marcelo and Lucia.

Well, except for Nora, who visits/pesters both Roman and Rodrigo to try to convince them to woo Lucia and snap her up while she’s broken up with Marcelo. She even tells Rod that he has competition (Roman). She also tries to continue her “friendship” with Marcelo, but he calls her out for sending that photo to him—not cool, and not something a “friend” would do. And even though Lucia doesn’t know about the photo, she still calls Nora out for her hypocrisy in trying to play the supportive sister. She knows Nora’s happy about the breakup.

A que no me dejas Episode 93 (1.19.17) The sun will come out tomorrow!!

Hello amigowz! 
Thanks to Nandicta I am covering for Delilah, who is on special assignment.

Tomorrow will be a great day, not for us with angry orange, but in Delajand, and I just can not wait until Monday!!

Tomorrow could be Leonel who needs René's help
We start this episode with René confessing to Leonel he was only a valet parking instead of all the things his resumé said he was. Of course Leonel couldn't hold his laugh.
-Don't laugh, today I might need your help but tomorrow it could be you who needs me!
-OK, I will help you with your report but later on, you will have to make it yourself. And remember. It has to be done DAILY!

Tomorrow Alan will go to México to unmask René
This happened in Los Angeles
Alan googled Eugenio Sandoval with bad results. The only one he found was the one who used to work in Vegas. Most surely the one who René stole the resumé from. Fernanda's visit to meet Mónica turned out to be more productive than we thought. She saw a family picture and I don't know how she recognized René if as far as I remember she hasn't met him yet (officially), but the thing is that she put Alan in alert and now both want to stop him from keep eroding the Murat's membrane thin familiar stability.

They have to act quickly, so now Alan will have to go to CanCun to verify if Eugenio is actually his evil brother René. All this while keeping Mónica in the dark. His mother should not know.

Fernanda is reticent and doesn't want Valentina to suspect, so she will ask her mother to take some pictures of René without his knowledge, to see if René Murat and Eugenio Sandoval are the same and only person.

El Color de la Pasión (ECDLP) #90. Wednesday January 18, 2017. All Puebla’s Plot Earrings And All Lala Milk’s Men Couldn’t Put Guilty Numpty Together Again

After the WrestleMania taster and Plot Earring’s grand entrance, Nora tells Lucía that Tere found the earring in Rebeca’s room when she was cleaning (hacer el aseo). Nora put it in her nightstand drawer and forgot to give it back to her mother. Lucía says she’ll do it herself. Nora asks her why she’s gone berserk over this. “Don’t mind me. Lately, I get upset (alterarse) over the darndest things.”

Marcelo’s cellphone receives the MMS picture message of Lucía and Dr. Fondler locked in an amorous clinch. Naturally, Milagros checks it out and shows it to Rafaela as proof that her adored Lucía doesn’t give a toss (le importa un comino. Lit.: “She cares as much as a cumin seed”) that Marcelo is detained (preso). Rafaela thinks they shouldn’t rush to judgement. Maybe the young man in the photo is her relative (un pariente) or a family friend. “Or her grandpappy!” sneers Milagros. This isn’t the first time Mother Terror has seen this guy with that two-timing tart (mosca muerta. Lit.: “dead fly”). Rafaela maintains that there must be a plausible explanation. Sometimes, appearances can be deceiving (a veces las apariencias engañan). “Oh, shut up and stop defending the indefensible!” snaps Milagros.

A Que No Me Dejas #92: A Step and A Limp from the Truth…

Mauricio warns Reguenio to not hurt Valentina or he’ll regret it. Reugenio is shocked at Mauricio’s attitude but Mauricio makes it clear that Valentina’s well being is first is he will always protect her. Either way, he doesn’t trust Reguenio or the love he’s offering. Reguenio tells him that Valentina can take care of herself and he will take care of her when she cannot take care of herself. He then tells Mauricio to get a girlfriend of his own and leave them alone. Mauricio leaves.

Gonzalo’s secretary announces Ileana and he requests that Osvaldo be present at their meeting. While they wait for him, Osvaldo and Ileana discuss the foundation and all they do. When Osvaldo arrives, Gonzalo asks that he give the foundation a monthly pension to help them in their daily functions. Ileana tries to salvage the meeting but Gonzalo knows perfectly well what Alzheimer’s and the foundation do. He then leaves and Osvaldo asks Ileana into his office.

Valentina apologizes to Reguenio for being late but Reguenio is pissed. He explains that Mauricio was just there and threatened to hurt him if Reguenio ever hurts Valentina. She tries to go talk to him but Reguenio makes it clear that she shouldn’t confront Mauricio; he just wants her to know that not everyone is happy to see them together. Valentina reiterates her love for Reguenio and hates that there is a rivalry between him and Mauricio. Reugenio promises to prove to Mauricio and her family that they belong together.

A Que No Me Dejas #91 - The wheels, the wheels are turning, 01/17/2017

Patio Peeps, I never thought the day would come when I felt sorry for Gonzalo, but I was wrong! Bullets below!


  • Raquel's crisis gets Gonzalo thinking: the police always suspected two shooters because two different guns were used, Gonzalo realizes that Raquel saw the second shooter, her illness makes her forget things and become confused but it does not cause her to make things up.
  • Gonzalo wonders who would want to harm two innocent children, then it hits him: Nuria. A shaken Gonzalo can't bring himself to believe that Nuria would have done such a thing, but if she did that means that Alfonso gave his life for Mauricio and Valentina.
  • Valentina tells Fernanda about the ring, then she tells her that Reugenio has not tried to get into her pants, this makes Fernanda wonder if Reugenio is hiding something...Valentina starts to wonder if Reugenio is gay. Fernanda suggests the best course of action is to ask Reugenio.
Now some wise advice from Princess Juju:
Never accept a marriage proposal from someone you have known for a whole four days, especially if you suspect he/she might be gay.

El Color de la Pasión (ECDLP) #89. Tuesday January 17, 2017. 
Plot Earring Returns To Put An End To Angst-palooza

Regrettably, the Human Barnacle is still among the living but the prognosis isn’t good. If the [intracranial] hematoma doesn’t subside, Daniela would have to undergo a potentially life-threatening operation. So, we have that to look forward to. Upon hearing this, Alfredo breaks down and starts blaming himself for neglecting his brat. Milagros says this isn’t the time for self-flagellation. She suggests he go home to shower and rest before visiting hours start.

Rebeca is incensed that Alonso bequeathed 10% of the fábrica’s shares to old man Nazario. Out of her own percentage, no less! She reproaches Amador for not informing her about this, but he didn’t know either. Now she’s going to need his shares to ensure that things at the fábrica go her way. His shares? What shares is Amador talking about? Lucía and Nora got 40% each, while Rebeca and Nazario received 10% apiece. I’m no wiz at arithmetics, but even I know that 40 + 40 + 10 + 10 = 100%. Moving on. Rebeca doesn’t think she and her allies could control the fábrica as long as Marcelo is orbiting their lives. A gleeful Amador breaks down the happy news: Marcelo has been arrested this morning on fraud charges and he’ll be transferred to the county jail in 3 or 4 days, once the judge issues a formal detention order (dictar auto de formal prisión). Rebeca asks who is the legal counsel representing them. No worries, toots. It’s someone I trust entirely.

A Que No Me Dejas (AQNMD) #90. Monday January 16, 2017. Discovered, Disowned And Disinherited

Nuria is exposed and cornered in her father’s office, with nowhere to escape the epic a$$-chewing that awaits her. “I know what you did to Mau, how you weaved (tejer) [your web of lies] to banish Valentina from the house and how you tried to harm your own sister. I’m gonna give you that apartment and a monthly stipend for life, but that’s all you’ll be receiving from your father! Not one additional cent, whether I’m alive or dead!” Nuria knows she’s busted but plays dumb: “What are you trying to tell me?” Vitch, did I stutter? The Gonz looks her squarely in the eyes, trying as best as he can to contain the anger and indignation boiling within him: “I’m not trying to tell you anything. I’m laying it on the line head-on and with crystal clarity: ¡Repruebo absolutamente todo lo que has hecho! I unequivocally condemn everything you have done! I’m not going to reward (premiar) you for all the harm you have caused the people I love and...” “But, Daddy...” The Gonz is now apoplectic with rage: “Shut up! Listen to me very well: You don’t deserve anything more! And to avoid you any future surprises, I’d like you to know that you are left out of my will (fuera de mi testamento) and that you won’t be getting a single solitary cent of my inheritance (herencia). Sí me entiendes, ¿verdad, hija?” DRINK! WHOOP! DANCE! CARTWHEEL ACROSS THE LIVING ROOM! Oh, this sure is a happy day in Dejaslandia!

Juan and David disagreed about Miguel, whom Juan is trying to throw shade on just because he is acquainted with Erika. He then handed him a favorable financial report which David should probably find suspect. He's trying to get more on David's good side, where he was before.

León and Luciana were having a late night snack in Mexico City and she was worrying about Erika moving in on Miguel. León reminded her that Miguel waited all those years for her. He's not worried... and very much enjoying the semi-fast food of Mexico.

Vino el Amor – Episode #53 – Friday 1/13/2017: The Amazing Race—Televisa Style

We revisit Miguel trying to put David in his place regarding Luciana. David imposes his position of superiority telling Miguel that what happens to Luci will always matter to him—as Marta’s daughter and part of the family. He felt guilty for not staying on top of her visa paperwork. Miguel reasserts his position by noting that David’s a little late. Tano and Marta hold him back. Marta assures David they will try again to reach Luciana in the morning. David leaves and Marta gives Miguel a look that would be enough to send a small child to stand in a corner.
 
Carita and Perla are in the shelter holding all the illegals, arguing in vain with Juan about the sick workers and the need for medical care. They can’t go on dispensing aspirin. He tells them it’ll take a few days to get one here. Meanwhile, they should calm the workers down by telling them a doctor will be coming soon. The girls say it’s a lie and Juan says, yeah, but it buys them time. Carita is worried that one might die on them. Perla and Juan jump on her. Carito asks if there’s any news on the girl that got away. Juan guesses she’s already in the hands of immigration. If she is, Perla thinks it won’t be long before they are all discovered.

A que no me dejas Episode 89 (1.13.17) Truth about Tobías is so precious, it has to be guarded by an army of lies

Ay Carolina! Porqué no eres una niña normal?
Ileana wants to follow up with Leonel's plan of seducing Gonzalo by befriending Raquel working as a voluntary in the alzheimer support group. Being her friend she can accompany Raquel home one day and enter the Murat residence by the main door.
She thinks her daughter is a little slow (water doesn't go all the way up to the cistern-the hamster in her brain has stopped running the wheel)
-Conquer Mauricio, use your head, your charm, seduce him, make yourself indispensable for him... Try different things, take him to dinner, bring him over, tell him that I want to meet him to thank him for being so so good with us. Anything! Think girl think!

Meanwhile, in the opposite side of the continent, Mónica phones René from a unknown number to make sure he answers. She starts nagging but that's the only way she can talk to him.
And that's also the reason he doesn't want to answer. Because he doesn't want her to nag, so he says bye.
She is left alone thinking: "René is not a kid anymore, I can not do anything to help him but I care, and I will for the rest of my life"

Trespassing to kill
Back in the mexican island, Julieta will climb a wall or jump a high fence to make sure she kills Paulina for a second time. This time please chop her head off so she doesn't come back to haunt you!
In her room, Valentina thinks that everybody is happy with her around but she is also concerned if this is going to work. 
-I am not sure- she thinks- I have been living free as a bird and now I will be under the rules of this house. I have been alone and now there's tons of people here.
She then calls Renugenio to thank him for sharing this adventure with her... 
-I love you -said René.
-I love you more, -Vale replies-, thanks for everything.
-Now hang up...
-NO, you hang up first...
-No... you do... (juaréver)

This episode is brought to you by our Sonia; disfrutala!

The episode starts with Grace pouring her heart out to David. I gotta say I admire her for this bold move, but also it was about time and surely David isn’t completely blind. Or is he? He reassures her that his feelings have not changed. He thanks her for being honest with him. David doesn’t want to hurt her so it’s best if they just carry on. Grace wants him to admit that there is someone else in his life. David basically tells G the same thing he told Luci: his kids are his number one priority and therefore he cannot be in a relationship. G calls bull because “Fer and Bobby love her”, they wouldn’t be opposed to their union. Grace wants THEIR family to be united. D thinks that it's for the best. G says that he needs to give himself the opportunity to be happy and storms off.

Bullets! Not in order!


  • Gonzalo makes the mistake of telling Leo that he is paying Angelica's salary, Leo runs off, finds Angelica and like a 13 year old girl at a sleep over tells her all about Gonzalo and his shady past.
  • Angelica tells Fernanda that she has asked Osvaldo to keep his distance, also she plans to quit her job because she's not comfortable with Gonzalo paying her salary- what if he has other intentions?
  • Julieta has a meltdown because she is sure her brother is still alive, this leads to Silvia drugging her and then she forbids Julieta from leaving the house.
  • Tobias tries to get Felix to get an ID for Adriana.
  • Adriana wants money of her own and wants Jaime to rent her apartment in Spain and have that money transferred to an account in Mexico.
  • Nuria visits Felix who has forgotten her name...Felix finally puts the dots together and realizes that Nuria is the rich woman who has been giving Tobias money, wanna bet he remembers her name now?
  • Maite and Osvaldo argue about Angelica and Maite's treatment of her, Maite makes it clear that she does not trust Angelica, she also implies that Gonzalo has the hots for Angie.

  • Val tells Mau what Raquel said and he has to play it off and omg that was painful to watch.
  • Rene scams a friend with the promise of a job, he makes his friend send over his resume which he will then pass off as his own- how does this jerk even have friends?
  • Alexis is super friendly.

  • Fernanda meets Osvaldo.
While sitting by the pool Rene drops his wallet and it is picked up by Leonel who opens it and sees the Nevada ID that's inside- omg, how stupid can Rene be? Anyhoo, Leo tells Rene that he knows who he is and together they plot to bring down Gonzalo.

Finally, Val makes amends with Gonzalo and apologizes for treating him like poop.

Amigos- I’m guest recapping for Jardinera today. Here’s a note she put up in an earlier post:  Sorry gang.

El Color de la Pasión, #83 (Hulu/Uni #82), 1/9/17: Abortion OJ Replaces Lala Milk as Episode Sponsor

Let's get right to it...Lucia’s two dizzy spells prompt Dr. Roman “Nosey” Andrade to ask her if she could be pregnant, by Marcelo. Rebeca eagerly eavesdrops on the other side of Lucia’s bedroom door, waiting for Lucia’s answer. Lucia admits that it’s totally possible. Dr. Nosey continues to get all up in Lucia’s business and points out that regardless of why she and Marcelo broke up, a baby changes everything (including messing up his own chances of moving in on her). He urges Lucia to get a pregnancy test right away.

Rebeca decides now is the time to bust up this little gab-fest. She doesn’t even bother to knock, and feigns interest in Lucia’s health. She then politely hustles Roman out and takes the opportunity to ask why he’s so interested in Lucia. Roman expresses his concern for them all, including Rebeca. He urges her to get that therapy she agreed to. But Rebeca got Al off her back (permanently) and Nora tied to her apron strings again, so she doesn’t need to pretend anymore. She tells Roman that she doesn’t have time for therapy. Roman gives her a final warning about just how vulnerable Nora is right now, and any little thing could push her over the edge. As Viewerville knows, Rebeca only cares about Nora’s mental health when it’s convenient, or inconvenient, for Rebeca.

El Color De La Pasion #82 (Hulu #81): Possibly Preggers - The Return (Again) of Plot Earring

Sara is shocked to learn that Ricardo was telling the truth and Adriana was admitted to the hospital twice on the day she died. She asks the file clerk if she can stay with the first page of the file and he goes to make a copy.

In Casa Gaxiola, Rebeca answers a call from Normita who tells her that Amador presented himself in the factory and it looks like he has returned to work because he’s made a lot of calls. Rebeca orders her to kick him out but Normita has no one who can do it as Nazario hasn’t arrived and Marcelo was fired. She offers to kick him out herself. As she’s leaving, Tere walks in and asks Rebeca if she can clean her room. She tells her she can and leaves. Tere starts to vacuum on top and under the dresser when she sucks in the Plot Earring. The vacuum immediately stops and Tere curses the machine.

A que no me dejas Episode 84 (1.06.17) You can lie to the whole world, excepto to yourself

Happy three wise men day! (Feliz día de Reyes) who brought with them the arctic freeze!
Brrr!

Meet Juliecienta
We start this episode with Ms Silvia demanding soup with carrots. If you believe in karma, this is it. Julieta will see herselves black (se las va a ver negras) living here with Ms Disney's Stepmother. 
No can do, replies Julieta, carrots were banned in my household since my Adrián never liked them and all my recipes does not include them. 
Do you see Adrián here? -yells Ms Silvia- No? Well then, I like carrots and MY SOUP will have them! What? Are YOU sitting at MY table? No no no missy, YOU wait until I am finished and THEN you eat, IN THE KITCHEN!!

Meanwhile in the High school K'aak n'aab (Ocean in mayan)
Atriana insists in meeting Julieta and asks Fabricio for help. He, as everybody else who is in his sane mind, thinks it is a bad idea, but she is nuts, what can we do? Its in the genes!

Don't cry out loud, just keep it inside (Chelo can hear us)
Mica and Beto cry their eyes out trying to figure what to do to help little Toby. Nuria is a bad influence, one day we will have to take him out of here, before is too late.
Chelo, who conveniently didn't overhear NOTHING, wants to know why Beto has not picked little Toby up from the K'aak n'aab.
-Oh sorry -says Beto- we were so deep in the conversation that I forgot.
-What were you talking about that he forgot about HIS OWN SON? Asks Chelo
-I am sorry but I gotta go, I have a lot to iron and I left the beans on the stove- says Mica.

Félix the Mechanic and Tobías are friends. Don't ask me, but the boy wants to learn from the expert how to pick up girls. 
-I will be free in the afternoons -says Tobías- I want to ligar chavitas (pick up girls), specially one fresh outta Spain named Atriana, but she lives in Fabricio's house, so I guess he has more chances than me to get her.
Cool Félix will show Little Toby how, and tells him about the riquilla (rich woman) he met
a few days ago and who he will see later today.

-She is cute but she has a manufacturer's defect- says the man- but it's ok, we all get even in bed. Let's have some chelas.
Toby admires the mechanic and would give his soul to the devil for a kiss from Atriana.

A Que No Me Dejas #83 Thursday Jan. 5, 2017 - Beto you are NOT the father and your mother knew!

REugenio schmoozes his way through the Murat/Fonseca breakfast as Vale preens like a giving a great first impression to Gonzo and Chelo, but for Mica and Raquel, the reception is cool.  Mau is polite, but when REugenio asks how to say hello, Mau shows him "hello" but adds idiot in his mind.   I would have slipped the middle finger *Shrug*  Val is silly and ridiculous, all schmoopy with a dude who kisses her like he's still practicing on the back of his hand.    Pau and Adrian are surely turning over in their beach grave at what a flop their little mermaid has become.   Me thinks Vale, no se vale.

El Color de la Pasion #80 Wednesday January 4th 2017 - The more things change, the more they stay the same. RIP Alonso Gaxiola

Rebecca sobs over Al's most likely lifeless body,  still professing her love for him and still clutching the pills that most likely could or could have saved him.  I love you..and you never cared.  My love..my love.  She doesn't bother to check for a pulse or see if the love of her life needs medical attention.  As always, Rebecca's first thought is preserving herself and with Al's own handkerchief she wipes her prints off the pill bottle before tossing them into his hand.   She leaves him there, either barely hanging on to life… or dead.

A Que No Me Dejas #82: When Your Secret Uncle/Boyfriend Comes to Breakfast...

Angelica’s boss tells her that because of her recent mistakes with the orders and the fact that she has been absent from work for the past few days if she’s not there first thing tomorrow then she’s fired. Angelica looks at Fernanda, who asks her what’s wrong, dejected.

Valentina can’t understand why Mauricio isn’t defending her in front of Carolina and Mauricio tells her that he lost as much as she did and she needs to let go of the past or she’ll be resentful and bitter all her life. People made fun of him and Nuria treated him like dirt as well but he’s still there, living and loving people and not complaining. He also makes it clear that he won’t fire Carolina just because she said so because she’s good at her job.

In Casa Murat, Micaela wants to talk to Beto about why he’s been so distant lately. He has been aggressive and rude as of late and she wants to know what happened. Beto tells her that he will talk to her about what’s going on when he has the proof he’s looking for. He doesn’t offer her any more details and leaves.

Vino el Amor #46; Wednesday, January 4, 2017: A Moment of Weakness, Not Everyone is Happy


We get to re-watch Luciana’s half-hearted marriage proposal acceptance. She looks so thrilled, like any girl who is madly in love with her man. NOT. Miguel is thrilled and lifts Luciana in the air telling her “you couldn’t make me any happier.” Marta rushes toward them and tells them she is so very happy for them and everyone else is applauding, hugging the jubilant couple and happy for them. They call for a bottle of wine to celebrate. However, Carito looks crushed and she and Perla run upstairs since they do not want to take part in the celebration. Marta calls up to them and somewhat taunts them about her daughter is going to be so very happy.  León gracefully escorts his mother away from the stairway to stop mocking the mean girls. (Not that they don’t deserve some taunting and mocking, but two wrongs don’t make a right.) Miguel hugs Luciana looking very happy, but Luciana does look like this is not really what she wants.

El Color de la Pasión (ECDLP) #79. Tuesday January 3, 2017. Murder By Pill-Snatching

¡Feliz Año Nuevo! Happy New Year! My best wishes to you and your loved ones for 2017!

At the fábrica, the moment of truth has finally arrived. At long last! After much dilly-dallying, soul-searching and going round to Nazario’s house for Lala Milk and self-serving advice, Marcelo looks Alonso straight in the eyes and delivers his confession. The truth gushes out of him like word-vomit: Sudden, brusque, nauseating and in a copious flow. Marcelo declares that he relocated to Puebla with the sole purpose of revenge-boinking Alonso’s cheating wife because he deems her responsible of causing the suicide of her toyboy lover, his late lamented kid brother, Federico. Marcelo also admits that he took Rebeca to bed and nearly danced the mattress mambo with her, but he changed his mind at the last minute because he is in luuurve with Lucía! Oh and Lucía knows about all this and was his accomplice in concealing the truth from Alonso! So, to sum up: I infiltrated your life under false pretenses, betrayed your trust, enamored all the women in your family, turned your house into an asylum and made your darling daughter, my fiancée, cover up all my lies! You can go ahead and clutch your chest now!

A Que No Me Dejas (AQNMD) #80. Monday January 2, 2017. Discussion Page.

¡Feliz Año Nuevo! Happy New Year! My best wishes to you and your loved ones for 2017!

I'm so sorry but I have a major problem: My laptop won't start up. It was working perfectly last night but this morning, it's dead. I took it to the Apple store and they want 700 Euros to change a whatchmallit, which is more than the whole bloomin' thing is worth! I can't even put up the summary from Televisa's website because I'm attempting to post this discussion thread using my cellphone. If any of you could contribute a few episode highlights for your fellow commenters, I would be much obliged. Many thanks and apologies to all.

El Color de la Pasión #78 (Uni/Hulu #77), 1/2/17: Lies and Evasion, Truth and Consequences

The Old: Leticia and Rodrigo commiserate about being miserable over coffee, and Rod picks up on Leti’s jealousy over Sergio stepping out with Gloria. Nora greets Marcelo and Lucia at the foot of the stairs with the Plot Pistol aimed right at them. She blames Lucia for all her woes, and swears that if she can’t have Marcelo, neither can Lucia! She fires a shot that goes wild and destroys a talavera pot that was minding its own business. Marcelo rushes her and they wrestle wildly for the gun. Another shot rings out in the middle of the struggle, and Marcelo, Nora, and Lucia all seem paralyzed with shock.

The New:  Marcelo realizes that neither he nor Nora were hit by the bullet, and he snatches the gun from her hands while her guard is down. Lucia calls out his name, and when he and Nora turn to face her, they see a stream of blood running down the right leg of her green dress, from where the bullet entered her thigh. Lucia’s shock turns into intense pain, and she begins to scream and collapses to the floor. Marcelo drops the gun and quickly goes to cradle Lucia as her pain and screams intensify. Two gunshots, one shattered pot, and many screams later, Alonso and Rebeca finally emerge from their heated bedroom argument, and run down the stairs demanding to know what the hell is going on. Al is overwhelmed and totally confused by what he sees. In reply to his question about what happened, Marcelo looks from the gun to Nora, who is rooted to the foot of the stairs, wild-eyed, a silent scream stuck in her throat. There’s no time to waste arguing, and so Marcelo and Alonso take hold of Lucia and carry her away so that she can be transported to the hospital.

Vino el Amor, Lunes 01/2/17 Chapter 44: When the Cat's Away the Rats Will Play


Lillian remained determined to get rid of Luciana and Juan told her he had the solution. Since she only has a visitor's visa he can have her sent back to Mexico. Since this would get Marta involved as well, it's killing two birds with one stone. This would make Marta's life a living hell, which is what she wants and this would be easier right now with David out of the country. They toasted their villainy.
