Mujeres de Negro, Martes 2/28/17 Chapter 11: The Naked Truth


Julio told Vanessa he loved her with his whole soul. This was why he did what he had done. He appeared to be in pain, both physical and emotional. She demanded to know why he never told her what he had done which endangered her life and Diego's.
To give you the lifestyle you deserved,” he said. “When I knew what we were really doing I tried to get out but Zacharias was obsessed with the damned money and kept looking for more.”

A Que No Me Dejas (AQNMD) #118. Monday February 27, 2017. Flashback To The Future With René To The Rescue

Just so you know, these past episodes originally aired in Mexico during the Christmas/New Year’s holidays of 2015/2016, hence the rehash hoopla. It’ll all be over in a couple of days.


Back to Dejaslandia’s frenzied efforts to gather Valentina’s ransom (rescate) money. Mauricio suggests they dip into the company’s emergency fund. Osvaldo says they can’t do that without Leonel’s prior approval. To hell with that bozo, Mau will stand up to him and assume full responsibility when the time comes. But for now, they need that money right away to save Vale’s life. The Gonz agrees. This is a pressing matter (una situación apremiante) that can’t wait any further. Once it’s resolved, they’ll discreetly put the money back (reponer el dinero) into the emergency fund and Bob’s your uncle!

El Color De La Pasion #117 (Hulu #116) 2.27.17: Rebeca Can't Catch a Break…Good.

Lucia grabs Rebeca by the back of the neck and pushes her out the fence, screaming that she’s leaving with nothing. Lucia closes it behind her as Rebeca comes back and gives her a death stare. Lucia screams that Rebeca probably thought she was going to die with Adriana but it didn’t happen and she’s going to make sure she pays for all she did. Rebeca pushes her way back inside and manages to loosen herself from Lucia’s grasp. Lucia grabs Rebeca’s car keys, which she dropped in the struggle, and announces that she’s going to wait until Nora gets home so that she can personally kick her out because she’s not going to be quiet any longer. She’s going to tell Nora everything including that she let Alonso die but she’s not waiting for Nora on her property. Lucia grabs Rebeca and pushes her outside again, screaming that she’s not going to set foot inside her mother’s house ever again. Rebeca opens the gate again but Lucia has already run inside the house with the car keys and locked the door behind her. Rebeca knocks on the door like a madwoman but Lucia doesn’t open it.

Inside the house, Lucia sits down on the steps and breaks down crying, looking at the banister her mother fell through and thinking about how her aunt killed both her mother and father…Outside, Rebeca breaks down crying as well, remembering when Alonso told her the same thing…”this house was build for Adriana and it will always be her house”. Rebeca repeats that it’s her house as well over and over. She goes down the front steps and out the gate, closing it behind her, defeated.

Mujeres De Negro 2.27.17 Chapter 10: Something Sinister This Way Comes...

Memories are in italics.

Jackie meets with Vanessa and Katia in Vanessa’s house to discuss her meeting with Irene at Farmateca. Jackie can’t understand why Irene is offering more than Transportadora ZZ is worth. Katia suggests that that’s it’s true value in the market but Jackie is sure she’s offering more than it’s worth because she checked the company’s price through various sources. She’s also sure she found their husband’s accomplice in all their shady business dealings. Vanessa is nervous about the whole thing so Katia suggests she sell immediately. Jackie isn’t too sure though.

Bernal is working at his computer when Kuri comes in and suggests they go out to get some food but Bernal is too busy. Kuri mentions that Borgetti praised his detective skills and Bernal is happy to at least receive some praise from the man. Kuri laughs and agrees and tells him that they should watch La Abuela’s lover more closely. She leaves to get food and Bernal looks over more ZZ documents and statements, not imagining that all the proof he needs is right in the box Zacaria’s mother left at the station.

El Color de la Pasión #116 (Hulu #115) The Truth Is Finally Out

I want to say adios, it's been a pleasure recapping this telenovela and with such a great team too.

Here we go.
Magdalena: Sara was right, you killed Adriana. Of course Rebeca denies it, Clara is lying and she made it all up. Madgalena asks Clara to leave, who was only too happy to oblige, and then hauls off and slaps Rebeca, backhanded at that, saying just yesterday, right here in this same spot, you were so indignant that I would accuse you of killing her. Ricardo was right, Adriana knew that you were the reason that he left me at the altar, and she told you that and in order to keep her quiet, and be able to have Alonso, so you killed her. Rebeca is still denying it, saying she never touched her, the railing did just break. Well, says Magda, if it was not your fault, why did you stay quiet all these years? Why did you pretend to know nothing about it?
Because she was afraid, she said. She didn’t want Alonso to think she was at fault. Mags tells her the cold hard truth, it didn’t serve her well anyway. Alonso died thinking very ill of her. And in pure Rebeca form, she artfully turns it around so that she’s once again the victim, asking Magda if she knows how hard this was living with the weight of this on her shoulders all these years? Mags tells her that she’s going to suffer even more now, going forward because she’s not going to care about Rebeca ever again.

Vino el Amor #82 - Friday 2/24/2017: Juan 1, David 0, DisGracie -1, the match is even

Out in the vineyard, David tells Luci his kids are backing off letting him have a relationship with any kind of evil stepmother. He doesn’t understand their change of opinion. Luci persuades him to delay saying anything right now about their relationship, rather than risk upsetting the whole grape cart they’ve filled with their juicy dreams. She’ll keep working on her relationship with Fer. They exchange “Te Amos” and a river of spit.
 
David and Luci getting more face time but, sadly, there kisses look a little painful. Anyway, I'm buyin' it because I wanted them together. (Lila)  I really have to fault Lucia, her besos seem emotionless and robotic. If they are really to be believable together, they must emanate some genuine chemistry which is sadly lacking currently. (Diana)
 
Sonia is telling Leon in the kitchen that Lil is not in a very good mood since Gut left her high and dry. Then the talk turns toward their latest romance novel.
 
Leon lets her know he better not be a substitute for anybody (like El Patrón, Sr. David), not like some character in their romance novel. She swears he's not. The Leon that takes no crap is kinda sexy. (Niece)  I'm thinking these two might have a real future with each other after all! (Diana)
 
Bobby & Charlie are in town heading for the candy store counter, discussing candy choices and evil stepmother choices when a pig-tailed beauty enters the store. Charlie pushes Bobby towards her. Bobby is delighted she speaks soccer. He finds out she also likes video games and she quickly seduces him into a date.
 
Now looks like Bobby will have a little girlfriend too. Gawd. (Tofie) Did we really need to introduce a girlfriend for Bobby? What is he..8 ? (Susanlynn)  Bobby's new girlfriend maybe will go on about how her new Mom is the coolest thing since sliced bread. (Kirby)

A que no me dejas Episode 117 (2.24.17) When truth is sad, another option is to lie... or to flashback!

With great power comes great responsability, sí me entiendes, verdad?
We start this episode with poor Valentina back in the tire shop and Nuria and Félix tying her up again. This doesn't look good.

Meanwhile in the Murat residence, Adriana, Tobillas and Mauricio see how Evaristo the detective go upstairs to see grandpa. He wants to monitor Valentina's rescue plan closely.
Tobillas is sure Nuria is the culprit, and Adriana tries to comfort him. Mauricio doesn't have anything to say, duh! and goes up to see Gonzalo too.

In grandpapá's room, Raquel tells Gonzalo, that Ileana will give him the shot the doctor prescribed. 
Mauricio "tells" him that Evaristo and his team will be working in the office organizing Valentina's rescue efforts.
When Ileana is ready to give Gonzalo a shot, he thanks her, but she humbly whispers that she is glad she can be of any help.

-Have you seen comother- says Gonzalo-, all I have generated, all this hatred and envy of my daughter Nuria for her sister Paulina.
-Don't beat yourself, comfather...

After almost 30 minutes of Flashbacks from episode 1 that we all have already seen, all including Nuria and too long to transcribe here and now, he adds:

-And to think that in some moments I was her ally, her accomplice (even more flashbacks)

A Que No Me Dejas #116 2.23.17: With Family Like This, Who Needs Enemies?

Felix and Nuria take Valentina back to the mechanic shop.

Almudena brings Jaime back to her villa at the hotel so he can get some rest before he must go home. Jaime hopes that he doesn’t get her in trouble because someone may see them and misinterpret the situation. Almudena doesn’t care, his health is the most important thing right now. Almudena goes to get him a blanket and Jaime lays down on the couch and goes to sleep.

Felix and Nuria bring Valentina back to the shop. They tie up her waist so that she can’t escape again. Valentina is still unconscious and Nuria comments on how high and mighty she behaves but how defenseless she looks now. She’s happy though because Gonzalo will take more pity on her and give them everything they ask for. She orders Felix to take the picture with the newspaper as proof of lie and then have a kid or someone drop off the photo at the Murat house. Felix doesn’t like Nuria’s attitude or the fact that she keeps ordering him around. Nuria reminds him that they she can’t do everything by herself and he is going to receive a lot of money form the kidnapping so he should stop whining. Nuria holds up the newspaper as Felix takes the picture and then walks away to print it. Nuria laughs at the fact that Felix called Valentina pretty because she finds her disgusting; she looks too much like Paulina for her tastes.

Mujeres de Negro, Jueves 2/23/17 Chapter 8: Obsessions


José drove Katia home in Lorenzo's lemon-yellow car. While they talked he put his hand on her uninjured knee, which made her sufficiently uneasy to remove it. But this was only in the name of driving safety, as she did not find this touch unwelcome. When they arrived at her home there was a flood in the kitchen. José removed his shirt and went to work on the plumbing, allowing Jackie an excellent view of his near-perfect physique which was devoid of body hair. So engrossed she was on the view that she did not hear his request to pass the pliers that she held. He was well aware of this as he took them a second later and continued his work. It was a simple repair and she thanked him. “I don't know what I would have done without you,” she said. He got up and wiped the sweat from his brow, making certain she got a perfect view. After this he put his shirt back on and got some beer out of the refrigerator for them to share a drink and chips. Katia was a little nervous about this, but was enjoying herself.

A Que No Me Dejas #115 2.22.17: If You Can't Kill Them, Kidnap Them

Mauricio and Gonzalo locate Valentina’s abandoned car and Mauricio is sure Nuria kidnapped Valentina. He suggests that they call the police but Gonzalo wants to call Dec. Guerrero because he’s sure Nuria is going to use Valentina as a bargaining chip to get out of the country. Gonzalo calls Guerrero and asks him to go to his house as they may be dealing with a possible kidnapping.

Alexis can’t locate Mauricio on his cell phone and hangs up as Leonel walks in and Alexis asks him about Tobias, who just started working at the hotel as a bellhop yesterday. Leonel is shocked to learn they have him working as a simple bellhop especially since he’s his son and Gonzalo’s grandson. Alexis is surprised to learn Tobias was telling the truth and Leonel ask that they remove him from the lowly position and let everyone at the hotel know Tobias is a Madrigal Murat. Alexis obliges.

Chelo is unpacking Tobias’ room when she sees a box of clothes on the sofa. She wonders if all his clothes are going to end up in the garbage since now he’s going to be rich. She wonders how money will change him since he was already greedy without having money and now he will have all the money and luxury he will want. She misses when Tobias was a child; how different he was from what he is now. Chelo laughs at the fact that everyone told her he didn’t look like her or anyone in her family but she didn’t pay attention the truth that was right in front of her. She hopes one day he comes back and tells her he loves her as much as she loves him.

El Color #114:Of Continuing Pursuits, Conniving Brutes and Capstone Lawsuits

 Parte 1~~

Speaking of Milagros, Doña Millie gets one-miracles, that is-- cuz Rafaela turns out to be a bit grazed and dazed, but breathing.   By the time Marcelo arrives breathless and panting, the EMT’s are there tending to her.  Mama Millie avoids the truth behind Rafi’s rather inelegant header down the stairs.

Brigida pays a late-night visit to Rodrigo.  She explains she’s finally figured out she has been living all these years with a violent man.  The parental unit is now in halves.  She refuses to let Rod speak to him or he’ll realize she’s there with him and for now she has nowhere else to go.  Why not move in with Mama someplace new?  (What and leave his new found independence as Man-maid in Puebla City?  What will poor Sergio do for decent help?)  He seems to give this idea some thought.  (Woe is we in Viewerville.)

Meanwhile, Papi Amador takes a brief trot over to the police department to ask the chief detective there what clues, if any, he’s gotten on Benny’s whereabouts.  Chief Detective asks why the great interest.  Amador comes up with some lame nothing excuse which doesn’t do much to convince Chief Detective.

This episode was kind of a mish-mash transitional episode. David is happy, not grumpy, but he makes a lot of other people grumpy with the news that he's got a new girlfriend! And her name is not Gracie, which makes Gracie quite unhappy. Fer is happy about her new boyfriend, but not so happy about Dad's new girlfriend. Miguel still seems like he's heading for a new novia himself though, even though he still keeps reaching out to the old one.

He hangs up, goes into the bullpen and calls Bernal and Kuri into his office. He tells them that he received a tip that the Zaldivia jewelry store is going to be robbed and he wants 24 hr surveillance. Bernal is confused as to why he wants them on this assignment because they’re already investigating the yacht explosion in Playa Coral but Borgetti makes it clear that he doesn’t want them wasting their time while they wait for Zacarias to make a mistake. Kuri immediately agrees and Borgetti likes her attitude a lot more than Bernal’s who also asks how long they will be on the jewelry store assignment. Borgetti tells them that it will be as long as is necessary and just like they were assigned to this surveillance detail, they will also be assigned to other cases in the mean time.

A que no me dejas Episode 112 (2.17.17) In Lie Lie Land, with truths as horrible as this one, lies are more than justified...

Losing is winning
Consuelo doesn't see the silver lining and is still crying over the fact that she could be losing Tobías to Nuria, who will be probably very happy to have him. Or at least that's what she thinks.
Dear, Tobías has been lost all this time (at least to you). Remember. If you love something set it free... and if it doesn't come back, GO GET IT!!

For the whole family Micaela's revelation has been a shock and now we only need to see what will be Nuria's reaction when she finds out Tobías is her son.

Gonzalo, keeping his hand by his stomach, probably blocking his sphincter of oddi with his fingers, instructs Valentina to fetch Tobías and take him to his office. 

Let's be a trouple

Me, you and Gonzalo. Meanwhile, Osvaldo and Angélica talk about themselves + Gonzalo, who at least listened to what he had to tell him after the "Leonel" incident.

-I am very concerned, his life is in danger- she says- I wish he gave me also the opportunity to clear things up.
-I was surprised with what Fernanda told me.
-Yes, I liked it very much, she forgave you... 
-And that's another chance for us. 
-No, no more chances for us. Please Osvaldo, understand that I need time... 
-Why, I am not with Maite anymore, there's no walls between us. 
-I feel terrible, above all, with Gonzalo, I wanna take my time, let's leave it this way, ok?

Mujeres de Negro, Jueves 2/16/17 Chapter 3: The Price of Liberty



After a search of Jackie's and Katia's homes the police found nothing in the way of technology. Jackie told Bernal that Lorenzo never brought work home with him and it appears that he had his cell phone with him on the yacht. Katia told him that Nicolás didn't like technology, so there was nothing to find, nothing missing. They may or may not have been telling the truth based on the look Vanessa gave them on the way out. A look that Kuri noticed.
As they left the station they talked about wishing it were all over. They wanted to get as far away as possible.

Gonzalo’s PI leaves but not before telling him that Osvaldo is right and someone is trying to kill him…someone close to him. Gonzalo breathes heavily.

Mauricio meets Valentina outside and tells her he agrees with the PI: Gonzalo doesn’t want the PI to continue investigating because he’s scared of what he might find. Valentina wonders whom he may be covering up for and why.

Osvaldo agrees that it may be horrible to think that Nuria is involved in all that has happened lately and possibly Alfonso’s death but they can’t ignore the truth anymore, especially after what happened today. Gonzalo doesn’t want to talk about it right now because he has a lot on his mind, namely, his relationship with Angelica. Osvaldo confesses that he came to talk to him about it because Angelica told him what happened. Gonzalo wants to know why he hid it and let him hope and Osvaldo explains that at first he didn’t know but then he didn’t say anything when he found out because Gonzalo was already interested in her and he didn’t want to ruin the relationship. Gonzalo explains that he could’ve understood because they all past. Osvaldo apologizes.

Marta says, “No, that can’t be!” Marta begins to grab Lu and shake her and tell her she doesn’t want Lu to suffer all her life. Of course Marta is projecting her own bad experience on to her daughter believing it’s the same thing. Lu explains that her love for David is very strong and she will suffer without David. She just feels very badly about hurting Miguel and having to hide this from everyone. Marta is talked out and says “Good night”. She is very angry with Lu.

El Color de la Pasión, #108 (Uni/Hulu #107), 2/13/17: Congratulations! It’s Another (Crazy, Bratty) Girl!

The Old:
-Nora remembers Ricardo’s insinuations about her mother.
-Sara tells Alfredo to speak to Ric if he wants to learn more about Rebeca.
-Marcelo and Lucia catch each other up on Vinicio’s and Daniela’s shenanigans.
-Nora goes to Ric’s place to find out more about her mama, and freaks out when Ric implies her mother is a murderer. She smashes the wine glass in his hand with her purse, and Ric gets a shard to the jugular. He pulls the shard from his neck and swiftly begins to bleed out.

Carolina and René have been dancin' the horizontal tango all through the weekend. They started on Friday and it is time that they haven't finished yet.
Anyway, as all in life, even youngsters get tired, and Carolina finally breaks the embrace saying:
-I am exhausted, René... you're terrific! 
-Do you think you would have felt the same with the little mute (sordito)? I doubt it.
- Well, I guess I will never know- sighs Carolina- But enough about him. I was sure you and me could hit it off. Since we met there was chemistry between us. I felt the sparks!
-But you went to Mauricio because his wallet was heavier, right? (Flashbacking when she openly rejected him to be with Mauricio saying: I won't risk juaréver I can have with Mauricio, not for you or anybody) Carolina, never say never!
-We are birds of a feather! I left Mauricio he rejected me so he can be with Valentina, see how generous I am? She did the same to you, because she dumped you to be with Mauricio.
-She doesn't want him neither because of his money nor as a man- adds René.

Upcoming Telenovelas: Stevey Tells Us What’s Happening in Mexico

The following post is from Commenter Stevey, who shares all he knows about the new telenovelas in the works in Mexico, that we may or may not see eventually in the U.S.

Hi everybody!!  In the past, I've tried to put together a little 'fact sheet' for you guys in regards to what's going on telenovela-wise 'South of the Border', in the land where they come from!   As I realize that whatever it is the staggeringly disgraceful boobs at Univision decide on by way of programming, will ultimately entail just what it is that YOU guys get to watch up yonder, America-way.  Some will make it, some will not... and god knows which will be which (hell, with the Univision execs being what they are, I doubt even HE knows!).  But, that being said, I wanted to come up with a post that hopefully you will find informative, enlightening, useful, entertaining, or any combination therein!  I apologize for its stupefying length, but it's a labor of love to be sure (I just hope it isn't as such reading it!)  To avoid editorializing (I unfortunately do that enough once I get going, for which I apologize... FWIW, I'm writing this paragraph last, so I know what I'm talking about here...), I'm just going to get right in on things, and on the projects that we've got on hand right now, or are already actively in preparation in some way...

Vino el Amor – Episode #73 – Friday 2/10/2017: It’s David and Luci United (Por Fin) Against the World

Some scenes have been combined and may not be in order.
 
Los Frijoles de Ayer
David and Luci stand together in the sunlight on a path in the vineyard, not very hidden from view. They declare their love, pledge their troth regardless of the obstacles ahead and kiss on it. Their first obstacle as a couple is to try to hear each other over that annoying singer who manages to drown out most of their declarations, making it hard for the Restless Patio to hear as well. They decide kissing is more productive.

El Arroz de Hoy
Still in a clinch and breathing heavily, Luci tells David they need to get back to work. He has other work on his mind, but Luci prevails. The walk arm in arm while Luci discusses how to go organic. Although Susan has already given David a lesson, he says he wants to hear it from Luci and listens attentively. He hopes the organic wine will reflect the passion and love they have for each other. (Oy vey, how maudlin.)

Speaking of Obstacles Part 1
For David, his first obstacle comes in the form of a visit from Adolfo, who has come to talk about winning the prize (Miguel, that is). Adolfo probes a bit. He wants to know why Miguel left. David explains they had some problems of late, but nothing to do with his work. Just let it be said he no longer felt comfortable working at Bodega Los Angeles (BLA). Adolfo is ok with a young man wanting to get ahead in life and choosing new opportunities. Then he challenges David to a duel of the wines in the upcoming competition. It’s his bodega with Miguel and Erica against David’s. He’s sure his wine will win handily. David is just as sure it will be his wine that wins because he has Luciana….and all the rest of the workers, of course.

Bouncing is what tiggers do best
Outside Notaría #45, Mauricio bounces on René. SuperAlan, who is on the side of justice, thinks his brother is disgusting and that he won't get anything from anybody he tried to take advantage of. To start, Mauricio broke the deal off tearing the contract and willing to take this matter to trial.
When Mauricio agree to give René 20% of his shares, he thought René was only blackmailing him, but when he found out René was also doing it with Valentina for another 20%, that was the straw that broke the camel's back and now he will litigate.
René demands his rights and will have his revenge. He didn't give his precious blood for shares in vain.

As Lucia happily agrees to marry Marcelo,  a depressed sNora sleeps.  Rebecca checks in on her daughter and then makes a tearful call to her lover, Alfedo who is drinking and obviously worrying about his own head case daughter.  He quickly answers his cell most likely hoping it's Whinenelia.  " I'm desperate" Rebecca says as soon as his "hello" is barely out.   Why?  She tells him when she arrived home her daughter was very ill.  Alfredo assumes it's physical but Rebecca tells him her daughter is a very emotionally fragile girl.  Alfredo wonders if she's sought professional help for her daughter.  Rebecca says yes but it's not helping.  She doesn't know why she called, except perhaps just to talk to someone, because she feels so alone and it's painful to see her daughter this way.  Alfredo offers to come over, but Rebecca says it would only make things worse.  He muses that it's odd that though their daughters are going through different things,  they are both having trouble with their girls  He tells Rebecca he doesn't even know where his daughter is and she won't answer her cell. 

I wish I didn't know where she was Alfredo, but I do.  She's at Rod's assaulting him with her guppy mouth.  It looks like things are going to progress further with Rod and the rod.   Man how far you have sunk Rodrigo.

A Que No Me Dejas #105: Everything's Coming Up Tobias...

Leonel calls Nuria an idiot because she could not kill her father and then she didn’t donate her blood to save Gonzalo and now Rene is the hero and him and Alan are now closer to Gonzalo than ever. Nuria wants Leonel to get out but he wants to savor her tragedy a little bit more. He berates for their sham of a marriage and thinks she should thank him because she’d be a spinster with a limp without him. Just then Felix arrives and Leonel laughs at them both. Felix wants Leonel to know that Nuria already has a new beau but Leonel could care less.

In Casa Murat, Valentina calls the family lawyer and asks that he go assist Tobias at the police station. Mauricio goes to help Tobias while Valentina offers to stay with Gonzalo. When he’s gone, Micaela confesses that Julieta is out of jail and the icing on the cake is that Adriana has been in contact with her the whole time.

Leonel continues to laugh at Nuria’s situation. She always told Leonel that she had plenty of suitors and hated nacos, ended up with a naco like Felix. Felix asks him to shut up but Leonel can’t pass up the opportunity to point out the irony of the situation: she laughed at her mother for being with Gaston but looked how she ended. He tells her that her apartment and her boyfriend remind him of his mother and reminds that if Felix is there with her it’s because she’s paying him and he’s sure one of the things she paid is for is Gonzalo’s murder. He tells her to shallow her words and walks out as Felix slams the door.

The flames of passion are burning high and hot, in Roman’s cabin in the woods with Lucia, and Marcelo’s apartment in D.F. with Daniela. Lucia gives it the old college try, and Marcelo closes his eyes and thinks of Puebla, but neither one of them can seal the deal. Lucia rolls over and starts crying, and even dense Roman realizes that’s NOT the response you should get while getting jiggy with your new lady on your first romantic weekend away. Marcelo jumps all the way out of the bed, almost as far as he can get from Dani’s octopus arms and guppy kisses. Both Lucia and Marcelo ask their respective jilted lovers for forgiveness, and begin a version of the “it’s not you, it’s me” speech.

They might have located another donor in a nearby hospital so there is that sliver of hope. Everyone is shocked, angry, surprised (except Valentina who just looks bored).

Rene is practicing his pool table skills and remembering when Grandma Elisa died and made him promise to avenge them…he then remembers when he was 16 and Gonzalo along with Paulina went to visit him and he sent them away…He smiles at himself and then calls a friend to put him in contact with a lawyer who can legalize blood/shares exchange.

Ileana goes to visit Raquel at Casa Murat since everyone is at the hospital and she must be lonely. Micaela tells her that they’ve been praying for a miracle and Ileana tells her she’s prayed too. Just then Raquel comes and Ileana tells her that she has brought cards to play games with her and Raquel proposes they go to the terrace to enjoy the day. When they’ve gone, Micaela tells Chelo that she doesn’t trust Ileana, there’s something off about her. Chelo tells her that Raquel is always happy to see her and she brings her joy but Micaela knows better: “the devil knows more because he’s old, not because he’s the devil.”

Daniela shrinks away from Milagros and asks if she’s going to say anything. Milagros tells her that she won’t but she better finds a way to end her charade before Marcelo finds out the truth. She then asks Daniela to never lie to her again, not if she wants her as an ally, and leaves.

Nazario receives a call and tells the other person on the line that he will be there immediately.

Amador walks into his bedroom and asks Brigida what her second condition is but Brigida will tell him when she gets back as she has some errands to run. Amador tells her to not play with him but Brigida has had it. She tells that the one making the rules now is her and they will talk when she gets back. Amador agrees and then Brigida explains that she told Esperanza to move his stuff to the guest room. Downstairs, Esperanza tells him that someone came to ask for him: Vinicio. He asks that she change the sheets in Rodrigo’s room and goes outside to meet Vinicio, who explains that Lucia fired him from the factory because he had a fight with Lalo. Amador tells him that he will try to fix it and Vinicio reminds him of all he’s done for him. Amador asks him to leave and repeats that he’ll take care of it.

Vino el Amor, Viernes 2/3/17 Chapter 68: 10,000 Pieces of Silver


Just the facts, peeps:

We come back to David telling Miguel he loved Luciana and will fight for her. Miguel told him he wouldn't make it easy for him, accusing him of wanting to leave. David said he wasn't going to ask him to but if he wanted to it was his decision. Miguel said he was going, then walked out the door.

Lillian walked in on Bobby playing his video game and tried to give him cookies, but he wasn't interested; Marta had already given him some. She tried a little harder but as with DisGracie the previous episode, they had no interests in common. Lillian looked frustrated.

A que no me dejas Episode 102 (2.03.17) It's easy to lie when you don't know the truth. And when you do is even easier!!

"I met Ms Silvia from prison about twenty years ago
and she told me she could help me get out early 
so we hit it off right away.
After she retired I got free and we started living together.
She'd go to the doctor, she'd come home, I'd clean the whole 
house with a toothbrush. We'd have dinner.
And then I found out,
"She had her own money" she told me?
Money, my @$$. Not only was she broke
...oh, no, she was stealing what my "corazón" left me,
falsifying my signature and lying to me.
One of those leeches, you know. So one day
when she tried to stop me from seeing my niece, 
I hugged her neck with my hands and squeezed.
You know, some people just can't hold choking".

She had it coming
Ms Silvia tried to separate Julieta from Adriana so Julieta killed her. Accidentally.
Of course she didn't mean it. She just can not control the strength of her hands! wink!

Suddenly, there's a knock at the door followed by more. Quick Julieta think! Do something! Not just bite your fingernails! Use your crazy powers! Open the door and kill whoever is disrupting your accidental murders. Where you can bury one, two fit too.

The one who's knocking is Jaime, looking for Ms Silvia. He wants to know if she has seen Adriana, who is missing since yesterday. Gisela and Fabricio, at home, look very worried.

A Que No Me Dejas #101 Thursday 2/2/2017 --Tainted Blood

Nuria doing what she always does, begins to lie to Tobias.  Why would I want to pull out a gun at a wedding and shoot Alfonso, my godfather? Tobias tells her that she was trying to kill Valentina and Mauricio.  Nuria says why that's crazy!  I may not like those two annoying brats but not enough to kill them.  They were children what could they have done to me?  Well Raquel said she saw you.  Well Raquel is also ill in the head.  She never remembers things correctly.  Tobias can't argue against that.  Nuria says yeah and she also can't stand me, so she wants to blame me, since she needs to blame someone.   What really hurts is that you'd believe her.  Don't you know me?  Tobias head is spinning from everything and what strikes him most odd is that Nuria keeps telling him that Felix and Hector just wanted to rob her father, but he saw Felix actually try to kill him.  Nuria says no he didn’t, he was just trying to defend himself and that's why Tobias needs to keep his mouth shut.  If he says what he saw they'll go to jail..that is if her father dies.  Tobias says no matter what she says, Felix is a murderer.  Nuria tells him to shut it.  Why do you believe him over me?  You just met him and you've known me forever, and I've stood by you unconditionally.  Because Felix and I love each other, he's my boyfriend!   Whaaaa?  Tobias looks repulsed.
