Papá a toda madre Wednesday January 31, 2018 Capítulo 12: Kidnapping, Conspiracy, and Blackmail: Oh, My!

At Jorge’s house, he is asking his daughter Valentina why she has not been going to her religious studies class. Father Cutberto told him that she has not been attending. What has she been up to? She says maybe Father Cutberto doesn’t see very well . . . Jorge wants her to look him in the eye and tell him the truth. She insists she has been going. If he doesn’t believe her he should go talk to her teacher. She cannot believe he has such little trust in her. He ends up apologizing. She is talking about getting ready for the concert and the fact that Toño and Samuel are going to Jorge’s godparent’s 50th anniversary party.

At Mauricio's house, Mauricio has taken on a much more conciliatory tone and is trying to convince a reluctant Anifer that living with her great aunt the nun will be a thousand times better for her. He follows her into their house. Mauricio explains that he is simply not ready to be a father. She insists that she has to live with him because he is her father. She likes him. He wants to know where it says that. He is too young to be a father. She doesn’t think he is so young. Well, he says he is more like an old kid. Maybe some time he will be ready to be a father. Anifer wants to know if she goes with the nun, will he ever come and see her. Of course he will . . . when he can. . . maybe not everyday but he will come to see her. Her next concern is if her mother comes looking for her, will he tell her where she is. Mauricio says of course he will. He asks nicely if she will go with her great aunt.

Caer en Tentación #72, 1/29/18, Lunes: Catch and Release


Chapter 72: Catch and Release

Carolina's cell rang. She shut if off, telling Raquel she was doing so so they could talk.
I am turning off the phone so we can talk.”
We can talk. I like clarity. I understand your reaction to what happened with Benjamín because I'm a mother. I don't accept your reaction but I understand it.” She paused a moment. “Why did you hurt me? Why did you hurt me so much?” She started to cry. “You accused me in front of my husband of being unbalanced and unable to take care of a baby. You know full well or suspected that this would prevent Santiago and my husband from allowing me to take care of a baby.” Carolina looked as though she was going to answer this but not in a positive way. “I only want you to know that I am not sick.” Carolina started, but Raquel interrupted. “No, no, no, I'm sorry but I'm not out of my mind or unable to care for a baby. It was an accident. You exposed me in front of my husband and hurt me. You are not my friend.”

At Renées home, Renée chides Mau for leaving Anifer alone. Mau wants her to stop scolding him since it was an emergencya social emergency. When Mau goes to check on Anifer who is asleep on the couch, he touches her forehead and feels that she is quite warm. When Renée checks Anifer, she gasps and tells Mau that Anifer is very hot and has a fever. Mau immediately brushes off the blame from himself and asks Renée what she gave Anifer for dinner. Renée can’t believe Mau could be serious since Anifer came knocking at her door in the middle of the night because he left her alone. Mau takes his big foot out of his mouth and apologizes to Renée…he doesn’t know what he is saying (uh-huh! You just had an epiphany?).
When he stutters as he asks what they should do, Renée tells him to use his common sense (did she see pigs flying?)

Caer en Tentacion #70, 1/25/18: The Investigation Heats Up (Really?) Yes, a Stolen Credit Card

Or, Dam(n) I'm Breaking Up With You Because All You Want From Me is Sex.

Folks, what luck. A CSI episode that goes nowhere fast just dropped in my lap. The recap, however, will go somewhere. Some scenes are combined.

After Antonio tells Santi about the one stolen credit card from Dam's billfold getting used (see prior episode) he quickly goes over the facts they have:
1. A rock hit the windshield. It could have been an accident, but it could also have been deliberate, to make them stop.
2. After the wreck, Dam was hit on the head with a shovel and Caro's body appears elsewhere.
3. They believe Caro was likely shot once at the scene of the accident with Santi's father's gun.
4. One credit card was stolen, although now they aren't sure if anything else was taken.

He promises they are going to follow up. Santi swears he didn't do it. Tonio says the judge will have to let him go--as long as he doesn't do anything else stupid.

Papa a Toda Madre #9 1.25.18: Slashed Tires & Black Scorpions Do Not Make You a Better Person

Neron warns Mauricio that he will make it his personal mission to make sure his time at the cul-de-sac is miserable indeed. Neron then goes outside and looks at Mauricio’s car with malicious intent.

That night, Mauricio and Anifer have a dinner of apples and she suggests that they keep looking around the house to find furniture or buy them. Mauricio doesn’t want to, as he needs to save money to move soon, but Anifer argues that she won’t live with him for long as her mother will come back for her. Mauricio tries to tell her the truth but there is a knock on the door and Mauricio asks Anifer to be careful if it’s Neron. It’s Renee, who gives Mauricio back his microwave, which she fixed, though Mauricio is unsure.

Recap time!


  • At the jail Santiago sees a woman who is wearing a bracelet that is identical to one that he had gifted to Carolina, he accuses the woman and her husband of having stolen it from his dead wife.

  • Alina gets a phone call about Santiago's melt down and runs off to see him- oh this is right after she finishes having sex with Nicolas, who is hiding out at her house because she has led him to believe that there's an active warrant out for him because he punched Andres (more on that later)
  • How did Alina get Nico to sleep with her? By telling him that he owed her for representing her father, she won't take cash, checks or credit cards, just penis. Then she tells him she loves him (lies!)

She sends her regards. Samuel wants to know why she didn’t send him some hugs. She doesn’t love him anymore. Jorge tells him it is not like that. She still loves him. He asks for his tablet so he can send her a message. That is not happening but Jorge says it was a good try. He is being punished unless he puts things right or tells him who put the pornography on the tablet. Samuel is left to stew on his bed.

Renée is having dinner with Dr. Lupe at her place discussing her graduate school problem. He offers to help her with whatever he can with but he thinks that the only way for her to not to worry about her visa, her admission, or anything else is to apply for American citizenship.

She asks her mom to give her a hand with the mess she is in. She promises to clean up her room and put everything she loved in order.

Caer En Tentacion #68, 1/23/18: Time To Play Hard Ball


  • There's a crisis of faith at the jail between Alina and Santiago who is asking her for cash from the kids to plan who knows what through his jail-mate's connections.  Alina refuses, guessing something's up.  "--Get another lawyer if you really don't think I'm acting in your best interest.  Things take time!  It won't be long now.  It's your right to be let loose without convincing proof of the crime.  This judge knows that.  Trust me!  I will get you out of here."  Santi holds off.

  • At the same time, Raquel squares off with Miriam in the doorway of Mimi's manse de expanse. "--I'm here for Benji.  I am not going to let what you did to Damian happen to Benjamin!"  She accuses Mimi of competing with Dam for his love--and not just motherly love.   "--If I've kept quiet all this time it was for your son!  If you continue with this you'll force me to come out with it." This threat really gets Mimi screamin'.  (Mimi has an Achilles heel, after all. Skeletons apparently are just waiting to tumble out of her walk-in.)  "--Years of terror!  Years of therapy, of not being able to speak about it.  You abused him, Miriam!  Give Benji back or I will not stop till everyone knows, including your grand kids!"

Papa a Toda Madre #7 1.23.18: Guess Who's Moving Next Door?

Mauricio receives a mysterious phone call and is floored by the news he receives.

Wilma calls Renee to the university to inform her that they are reducing the amount of students that are accepted in a US university in her field. Renee asks if she’s safe, as she was already accepted, but Wilma explains that she needs to complete the required forms in time or they may give her spot to a waitlist student. Renee can’t believe the dilemma she’s in: she can’t apply for a student visa without being formally accepted into the university, which she can’t do if she has no money to pay for it. Wilma hopes they find a solution soon but Renee sighs heavily.

Caer en Tentación #66/67, 1/22/18 Lunes: Predators and Prey

Chapter 66: Predators and Prey

Carolina asked Florencia whether she had disposed of the garbage and she said she had; Santiago was taking the bins out. Carolina appeared testy. This was possibly due to Damián's presence but also to Florencia herself. She may have sensed that the girl found Santiago attractive. She was about to have another disagreement with Damián when Raquel had entered. Santiago returned and Carolina pretended that all was well. Florencia knew that something wasn't right in this house when the two women talked about the next day. Raquel volunteered to look after Benjamín again, then left with Damián. Santiago and Carolina disagreed about Florencia's duties. Although she didn't say so Carolina felt like Florencia was encroaching on her territory by cooking for Santiago, who asked her whether she was jealous. She didn't admit to it, but he didn't really give her an opportunity. He persuaded her to finally break her post-partum celibacy.

Papá a Toda Madre, Episode 6, 1/22/2018: Blithering, Blundering Buffoons Just Can’t Find the Words!


Thoughts and memories in italics
[Previously: At Logatoys, Mauricio sees a message from Juan Perez, a man who claims to know María. Fabian reads that Perez is asking to meet in a town close to where Anifer lives and claims to know where María is.] Mauricio wants Fabian to go with him because this thing about “blind dates” has always given him the heebie-jeebies. Fabian doesn’t think they should trust the man because he could be dangerous, but Mauricio thinks he has no choice…sometimes one has to trust a stranger’s generous offer; or do whatever it takes to return a child to its mother. When Mauricio asks if they still have the helicopter, Fabian confirms that they do; then sighs deeply in frustration as Mauricio walks away.

Caer en Tentacion #65, 1/19/2018; Florencia is the 5th wheel and will make sand castles fall (or that Plot Gun is driving me crazy)


Present time:
Antonio tells Alina that if there is no physical evidence tying Santi to the crime, he still is a suspect for being the master mind. Alina asks “what makes you say that?” Antonio replies “the fact that the gun is his and the Beckers have evidence that he owed a significant amount of money to Damian.” Alina looks taken aback.
Raquel goes to see Santi. She looks weak, exhausted and tells him to resist because she needs him with her. She says she knows he did not do it. “Do you know who killed Carolina?” says Santi. She replies “I don’t know who killed her, but I do know how much you loved her, so you would not kill her.” “I thought you knew” Raquel says “no I have some ideas maybe, Miriam, Andres and possibly Vicente he is so unstable, but on the other hand Damian’s family always thought you guys were with us because you were interested in our money.” She then says “if I knew something I would tell you” Raquel continues and says “it’s important to know who took out the gun from the drawer” she speculates that maybe Carol, Santi says “what you think she took the gun out to commit suicide or to kill Damian?” {Ok patio, I need to stop here a minute…now when Raquel found the gun in the drawer she actually handled the gun right? So what is this supposition that Carol took the gun…My head is spinning…someone please tell me that Raquel did see the gun after Carol was already dead!!}

Papa a Toda Madre #5 1.19.17: Being a Father is Hard and Some Are Terrible At It

Anifer hears all the hurtful things Mauricio is saying about her and her mother and runs off, with tears in her eyes.

In Orlando, Veronica announces that she would like lobster and all the kids agree. They run off in search of the lobster stand as Veronica holds Tono back and asks him why he has such a long face. Tono asks her not to worry too much but there is the possibility that they will both be out of a job. He then runs off to control the kids as Veronica demands an explanation.

Neron arrives home and begins to pick up all of Milady’s toys as his kids knock on the door outside. They wonder what the probably is and Neron demands they are calm. After a few minutes, he lets them inside and they wonder why he’s being so weird. Ciceron notes that it doesn’t smell too bad, as fumigations usually do, and Socretes thinks the house is surprisingly tidy. Neron tells him not too think too much about it but Socretes wants to go to his room. Neron stops him and sits him down as Flor calls him and he runs to the kitchen. He doesn’t notice Ciceron pick up a pacifier nearby and show it to Socretes.

Caer en Tentacion #64, 1/18/18: Treachery is Afoot Everywhere

Part 1 of 2
En el presente
Godoy and Antonio discuss the current state of the case against Santiago. They're working on comparing the fingerprints. Godoy tells Tonio that actually, there is something more important to add to the case. The Becker's lawyer says he has evidence to use against Santiago. Tonio says that until they get fingerprint results, they have nothing. They should have the results later that afternoon. Godoy is convinced this was not merely a crime of passion. Much more is in play. Godoy is going to go back and interview Vicente. Oh, and by the way, says Tonio, Laura was here asking about him. Be careful, he warns, a woman hurt is dangerous.

Miriam apparently saw Alina there at the police station and asks Rueda why she's there. He tells her she has information for him on Santi's case and will be presenting it to the judge. He does warn her that the fingerprints might not match, but not to worry, he has another card to play. It seems Santi borrowed a lot of money from Damian but never paid it back. Dam wrote him a very large check. Miriam is pissed that Dam never mentioned it. They agree that this is enough to put Santi behind bars until he rots away. Rueda says they can't use it right now, but later it could be used as a motive for the attempt on Damian. [ed. note: If this were the case, wouldn't Santi have made sure Dam was dead and not just knocked out?] Rueda proudly puts forth his theory--eliminate Damian; eliminate the debt.

Papa a Toda Madre #4 1.18.18: Business Lessons from a Professional Playboy

The funeral director tells Renee that Lupe paid all the outstanding bills. Renee is shocked.

Outside Logatoys, Neron and Renee discuss what Lupe did. Neron doesn’t know what she should do but Renee is going to pay Lupe back because he shouldn’t be doing those things for her anyway. Neron wishes he could give her some money, but he’s barely getting severance pay, though Renee has an idea on where to get the money to pay Lupe and pay for her Masters.

Jorge informs Mauricio and Fabian that, without Mr. Fairbanks as an investor, they will need layoff half the staff to take care of the most pressing debts. Mauricio is against it, as they barely get paid minimum wage, but barely knows if his employees are salaried or hourly, let alone Jorge’s actual name. Fabian asks Jorge to leave them alone and reveals that he has found a last minute investor as there is a knock on the door. Fabian goes to answer and it’s Renee, who comes asking for a loan from Logatoys, much to their chagrin.

Sorry for the late post, yesterday was crazy. I had a pet emergency, my kitten has a UTI (and a heart murmur!) and we had to rush him to the vet, in addition to that it was my step dads 72nd birthday and by the time the day was over I was DEAD. Below is your recap!

  • Andres takes Raquel home, Cinthia says she will take care of her sister and make sure she gets better. Raquel's doctor thinks it would be a good idea for her to be in a hospital where she can rest and where they can control the environment and make sure nothing upsets her.
  • Raquel is put to sleep and later Mia visits with her, Raquel keeps calling for Santiago who she says only wants to take care of her.
  • Cinthia tells Fede that they need to stick together in order to help Raquel, Mia, again makes everything about herself and accuses them of excluding her and not thinking about her and her feelings.

Papá a toda madre Wednesday 1/17/18 Capítulo 3: Hip! Hip! Dubai!--OR--When the Nice Guy is the Wrong Guy

We start this episode in the funeral parlor where Renée is accepting condolences. There is Nerón her godfather and Flor, Jorge, (whose wife Dulce has not accompanied him), Verónica and Toño. Finally, there is Dr. Lupe who appears with coffee for Renée and tells her (for the first of many times) that he is there for whatever she needs. She is at the casket when the funeral director needs her to sign a few documents for the funeral home. The bill is 50,000 pesos (about $2,663). Renée is surprised by the cost. She talks to Verónica and Nerón about feeling so alone even though she is surrounded by so many people. Verónica reminds her that her mother just passed away today. Renée remarks that this has been the most intense day of her life: a wedding and a death and all that they need is a birth. Flor completes that trifecta by announcing that she feels like she is going into labor. Dr. Lupe takes control of the situation.

Caer en Tentacion #62, 1/16/18: Trapped--Everybody is Trapped

(Scenes not necessarily in order)
Epoca Actual
Raquel tries to get away from the couple that is preventing her from leaving. She is now fully cognizant of who she was with, but not exactly where she is. The "hostage takers" tell her she cannot leave, that her family has been notified and Andres Becker is coming to pick her up. The man persuades her to take her medicine and lie down.

Meanwhile, Santiago has been at the house and after being told the woman he's looking for was there but left, has been sent on a wild goose chase to the local Greyhound station and maybe they can help him. Santi talks to a police or security officer at the bus station.

Rueda reports to Andres that apparently the gun that was used to kill Carolina belonged to Santiago. If it turns out to be true, a judge can put in an order to have him arrested. They think things will work in their favor and against Santi, especially with him alone with Raquel and outside the city. He can be charged with flight.

Papa a Toda Madre #2 1.16.18: One Little Girl to Win the Hearts of Many

Renee smiles at Alejandro and waves goodbye before turning around and high tailing it out of there. Catalina and Alejandro run after her.

The little girl waves at Mauricio and runs to him as Mr. Fairbanks and Miranda wonder what is happening. The little girl hugs him tight, but Mauricio demands security take her away as he doesn’t know her. The girl claims that she doesn’t know him either but he’s her father. Miranda can’t believe Mauricio has a daughter, but Mauricio declares he does not and asks Fabian if it’s a joke. Fabian shakes his head and Miranda demands a clear answer. Mauricio tells her it’s all a misunderstanding and asks the priest to continue with the wedding. Miranda, however, reminds him that the little girl is still clutching his leg. The girl tells Mauricio that her mother wrote a letter with his name, Mauricio Lopez-Garza. Mauricio is shocked to hear he knows his name as is Miranda.

Alejandro runs after Renee and demands she go back in the church and marry him. Renee won’t though because her priority is her career and she doesn’t need a man’s permission to follow her dreams. She runs off as Catalina, and everyone, watches.

Caer En Tentacion #61, 1/15/18: Raquel On The Loose





Jardinera apologizes for the mix-up. She's fallen ill to the current scourge sweeping the nation. Rather that delete her always well crafted recap, we'll just have double the pleasure.
  • Cinthia explains to Santiago that Mia's having a fit that her mama's not there; Raquel needs to come home and quick.  They may want to escape reality for a while but if Raq finds out that Mia's been sick and upset that she's not there with her there'll be Hell to pay.  Santi starts furiously looking for Raquel.

  • At the strangers' house in the town, the couple scheme to keep Raq there while the husband calls her rich family members off the phone list of names.  Raq remembers she left without word and got lost. Santi will be worried.  She looks for her phone and it's gone!  No way to contact him now.  She struggles to think straight; between her mental problems and the meds she's on it's hard to get two meaningful thoughts strung together.  The wife promises her that her hubby is out looking for him and will contact somebody for her.

  • Bebo agrees to accompany Lola to her abortion doctor's appointment.  He tries first to talk her out of this but she's stubbornly sticking to her guns.  No way she wants this pregnancy (let alone Juan's demon seed and a reason for Perv Profession pursuing her the rest of her life).  They head off once the babysitter arrives, and Stalker Man is there in his car spying on the two of them going off arm in arm.

Cinthia called Santiago about Mia while he looked for Raquel. He did not tell her that Raquel was missing while she told him little about Mia, only that she was worried about her and that Mia needed Raquel.

Raquel's female captor gave her tea and offered her something to eat while Raquel frantically looked for her cell phone so she could call Santiago. The phone was not in her purse and was most likely in the hands of her captors. Raquel wanted to get outside to get some fresh air but the woman stopped her, telling her it was too dangerous for her to go out. She tried to tell her that she would take care of her while her husband was trying to contact her friends.

Papa a Toda Madre #1 1.15.18: Be Careful Who You Marry

Memories are in italics...

On a yacht in the middle of the ocean, playboy and professional party animal, Mauricio Lopez-Garza (Sebastian Rulli), pops open a bottle of champagne with a sword and romances women by giving them a gold necklace with an “M” on it (not for marriage, oh no, he doesn’t do that) but so his conquests always remember his name. This is only his weekends though…

During the weekdays, he holds board meetings at Logatoys to propose new toys. His latest proposal is a replica of the very same yacht he was partying on all weekend. However, Fabian Carvajal (Mark Tacher), the general manager of Logatoys and Mauricio’s best friend, notes the obvious problem (that Mauricio can’t seem to comprehend): the model for said toy would cost the company a lot of money and, therefore, it would cost a lot to mass produce said toy. If this is the case, Logatoys would have to charge consumers a lot of money for it but most of their consumers don’t have said amount of money or a pool to play with the yacht. Mauricio, however, thinks the children could play with the giant yacht in the bathtub and be done with it. He asks the Logatoys lawyer, Jorge Turrubiates (Sergio Mur), to gather all the permits so they can reconvene in a couple of weeks. Jorge asks for a more concrete date, but Mauricio directs any further questions to Fabian. Once alone, Fabian tries to tell Mauricio that things at Logatoys aren’t on the up and up, but Mauricio is sure the upcoming “Child Day” will boast sales and they have nothing to worry about.

Enamorándome de Ramón, 1/15/2018: Gran Fin…Por Fin!

Skipped Scenes in Blue
Previously: Fabi keeps asking Francystco where her daughter is, but as he is about to tell her where Ana is, Francystco passes out. While Ramón tries to hold Fabi back, Fabi curses and yells, “Damn you! You can’t die! Tell me where my daughter is! Tell me! Francystco! Francystco! Where is she?” As Ramón manages to pull Fabi away from Francystco, Francystco coughs and passes out.

Outside, Juana worries that they are taking too long and wants to go inside, but Antonio tells her the cops are doing their job. As Juana insists that they may need her help (yeah, right! if they really do, send in the parrot!), she sees Fabi and Ramón walk out and asks them for the baby. After Ramón tells them that Francystco was not able to tell them anything and that he is dying, Sofía yells from the patrol car, “Don’t even look for her! By this time, that child should be dead!” Fabi tries to dart toward Sofía, so Ramón holds her back, but Juana turns into Calamity Jane as her pigtails twirl furiously and she grabs a pistol from a cop. After she pulls Sofía out of the patrol car, Calamity Jane yells, “Get out! Get out! You tell me right now where my granddaughter is, or you die right here!” Ramón tries to tell Calamity Jane to let Sofía go, but Calamity Jane won’t be stopped.

Mi marido tiene familia Friday 1/12/18 Gran Final #2 Capitulo 102: Not Quite Happily Ever After . . . To Be Continued

Well, this is my last recap for MMTF and I am going to thank someone I have not ever thanked before: I want to thank Juan Osorio for bringing us such a heartwarming story in such an excellent production. It quickly has become one of my all time favorites. I cannot wait until the next season.

Next, I want to thank you, RgvChick, for joining me in recapping this story along with your EdR recapping. It was a pleasure working with you. We made a good team. I hope to work with you again in the future. :)

I cannot forget to thank Alfredo who got us started by posting discussion pages. His initiative made all the difference.

Finally, I want to thank you, the patio, for giving me a reason to write these recaps at all. Whether you simply read or commented once and a while or were a “regular,” your presence was noticed and valued. I always looked forward to reading the comments, opinions and interpretations expressed at our little oasis. I hope to see you on another patio very soon.

Now, back to the very last chapter in the story . . . I cannot wait to read your comments on this one . . .

After hearing the oompah-pah of the tuba one last time . . .

Julieta shows Luz a page of real estate listings. It is time to move. She feels that she and Robert need to make a life of their own. She would never do anything to stop the kids from seeing their family. Luz agrees that it is healthy to maintain a certain distance from the family. Julieta wants to be able to raise her own children without having the family giving their opinion about everything. Julieta is going to continue seeing properties. If Robert does not want to look for a house, Julieta will give him his part of the money and she will use her part of the money as a down payment. Julieta’s phone rings and it is Catalina. Catalina is upset because ungrateful Hugo and Diana are moving out and abandoning her. Julieta tells her that they have the right to have their own home. Catalina is worried about having no company. She feels worse than when Julieta’s father walked out on her. Julieta tells her she will overcome this and that she is going to grow a lot from this experience. Catalina moans that nobody understands her and hangs up.

Enamorándome de Ramon, Friday January 12, 2018; Grand Final, part 1; Taken: The Search for Ana


We begin where we left off last night: “Fabiola keeps playing with her baby as Francisco looks on but doesn’t move. Just then, a woman arrives and asks Fabiola is she knows where a church is. Fabiola walks away for a moment to show the women where it is and then bids her a good day. When she turns back around, she finds that Ana is gone and begins to scream for help…  “

The lady asking for directions just walks off [I am wondering why Fabi didn’t go running after her to find out something and gotten her description to give to police.] Juana comes back and says she couldn’t have been gone for more than five minutes. A few helpful bystanders say they are calling the police.

Caer en Tentacion #59, 1/11/18: Who is the Sicker One?

Some scenes have been combined to provide continuity.

Nacho thinks he knows who the ideal murder suspect is. Santi tells him to spill it, now. Ok, it's Miriam. Think about it. She's someone who knows every move they make, someone who is a master manipulator, who despises everyone around her, so why not Miriam. She could have planned it, she could have been responsible.

Santi can't believe she would ever want to harm her own son. He begins to recall how Dam gave them everything they asked for (and more). He concludes Dam did it just to distract him from figuring out what he and Caro were doing. Nacho still recommends taking their new suspicion to Antonio. After all, they put him in jail with no verifiable evidence, only circumstantial. Now Tonio should be willing to investigate Miriam.

Mi Marido Tiene Familia #101, 1/11/2018: Grand Finale-Part 1 Bloodlines and Family Ties.

This is my final recap for this superb telenovela that I almost didn’t watch. I’m so glad I watched the first episode to give it a try…and every episode thereafter was a joy to view. Every aspect of this TN was exquisitely written and portrayed by actors who were outstanding in bringing it to life.
I want to thank Alfredo for starting us up with the discussion pages which eventually turned into full recaps…started by Jarifa, my masterful co-recapper. Thank you Jarifa for paving the way to the recaps!
Last, but definitely not least, I want to thank all the loyal commentators and followers/lurkers in this patio who made this so much more enjoyable and rewarding with your kind words, insightful comments and creative perspectives. It was an amazing experience; and I especially loved how great the story and patio turned out to be. Hope to see you all in the next patio!


Julieta is in her bedroom when she gets a severe cramp and her water breaks. She slowly walks toward the phone but the cramps get more severe. She slips down to the floor and looks at the phone which is a few feet away but can’t reach it. As she calls out Robert’s name and yells out in pain, Dave comes rushing in wondering what is happening to her, so she tells him to go get his Grandma Blanca. He rushes off as Julieta clamors in pain and breathes deeply. Robert arrives and hears Julieta so he rushes to her. When she tells him her water broke, Robert slowly lifts her to the bed as she screams in pain and tells Dave who is watching to go let his grandparents know and to stay at his grandparent’s home. Dave leaves as Robert tries to calm Julieta and tells her everything will be fine. Robert starts panicking so he asks Julieta what he should do. As Julieta yells, she manages to tell Robert to get her clothes which he quickly does. They continue to tell each other to calm down.

Enamorandome de Ramon #115 1.11.18: Two Big Coincidences & One Evil Plan

Hello all! Well, here we are, the end of another story. Not the best story but one of the best patios I've had the pleasure of being a part of. It's true what they say, "the worse the novela, the funner the patio," and this has never been more evident than during this subpar story. 

Regardless of it's shortcomings, it was fun to recap and discuss the actions (we thought about them more than the writers did) with all of you. 

To the recap team of RGVChick, Sandie and Cynthia: thank you for taking this journey with me. I know there were some slow and hard times but we powered through it. I couldn't have asked for a funnier or more dependable group to share recapping duties with. Thank you!

As for our loyal commentors: Kirby, Diana, Susanlynn, JudyB, Lucio, Nina, Carvivlie, Steve, and many others. I thank you for sticking with us through the hard and fun times. It's been a pleasure. 

See you at the next one! :)

Patio if all goes as planned, this is my last Recap for this TN. I want to thank all that took the time to read and comment on all of our recaps, it is a labor of love. I did enjoy it as much as it was possible to enjoy, there were some pretty dumb episodes, but then there were some very heartwarming ones and overall it did what it set out to do which was to keep us entertained. I for one can say I've had a blast recapping and commenting on this TN and will miss this group of followers. On to the next one I say, although I don't know which one it will be for me. In the meantime you can find me on the CAER patio.

[Previously: As Tulio kneels in front of Imelda, she tells him that she forced her ideas on them without realizing the harm she was doing. In a way, Tulio was right when he said the family would have been better off without her. Imelda is very proud of all of her children for forging on ahead in spite of her. Tulio will always be her son until the day she dies. After Imelda tells Tulio that he needs her forgiveness and she needs his forgiveness, she tells him that the only one who is really going to forgive them both is God.]

In the carpentry shop, Gabriel shows Dave the long-legged spider, one of the first of Dani’s toy collection. When Dave just looks at it, Dani comes over and asks if he doesn’t like it. Gabriel comments that of course he likes it since it was made by experts, but Dani knows something is wrong and assumes that Dave is worried about Julieta…which he confirms. When Dani assures him that he and his little sibling will be fine, Dave agrees though everyone else says it won’t be fine…and because when the baby arrives everyone will forget about him. After Gabriel asks why he thinks that, Dave explains that the baby will be born from Julieta and he wasn’t…and the baby won’t have my scars. Dani sits Dave on her lap and tells him that the baby was not chosen because he was special; the baby was the one that came like in a raffle. She then tells Dave that  he was chosen from among all the children...Robert and Julieta met him and knew he was the best. Dani then shares that she always felt different from the rest; and Gabriel agrees that is true and yet he chose her among all the women…because she is the best, even with her crewcut/hair. Gabriel adds that the only thing Dave has to do is allow himself to be loved. Dani interjects that he also needs to consider that Robert and Julieta love him; and they will love him for the rest of their lives.

The doctor continues with instructions on how Julieta can carry the baby to term. She is going to need constant medical checkups and absolute rest: so she will not be working. She will also need a cervical cerclage to strengthen the cervix. As they leave the doctor’s office Robert and Julieta are ecstatic realizing what a miracle they have been given.

Caer en Tentación #56, 1/08/18, Lunes: Threats

Chapter 56: Threats

Just the facts tonight due to minor computer issues

Santiago was served with a summons to family court for a petition for custody of Benjamín. He closed the door on the bailiff.

At the same moment Miriam sneered at Raquel that she was the stupidest woman to think that Miriam would make this deal with her. She told her that Santiago was being served with the document at that very moment. Further that it was a situation of today the baby, tomorrow the business. After she swept out of the room Raquel looked Rueda in the eye, accusing him of planning this all along. His response?
I do what my client asks me to do.”
Raquel, having already told him that this was a very low thing to do, left the room. Andres followed her, saying that he didn't expect this to turn out this way. Raquel didn't accept this, saying that he is playing her and Miriam against each other for his own advantage. She refused to speak to him any further on this and left the office.

Julio is at the casino and has just won so he takes a swig. Meanwhile, Juana prays to St. Jude (Dr. Parrot must be on the farm spreading his wings…or has been sent out to look for Julio, we can't trust Juana with a drone, can we?) asking that nothing bad happened to Don Julio. She thinks it’ll be enough when he finds out his son was near death and they had to amputate his leg. Juana asks that St. Jude protect Julio where ever he is…and whatever the motive was for him to disappear, that he be forgiven. Juana you may want to reconsider that forgiven part.
Luisa and Finito arrive at their home as Finito comments that he thinks Benito made up the story about going to see Nabor. Luisa wonders why he thinks that since Benito and Nabor have been friends for a long time. Finito questions the comments Benito made, but Luisa thinks he shouldn’t make a big deal of it; he should consider the source. Finito insists that Benito was insinuating something…and Benito couldn’t stop looking at Luisa. When Luisa thinks Benito was just trying to rile up Finito and suggests Finito ignore it, Finito smiles and agrees…it’s not worth getting upset with each other. After Finito decides to go rest and tells Luisa he will wait for her, Luisa thinks he may want some action and wonders what she should do.

NOTE: Today's episode was all in the present time
Andres tries to convince Raquel to go home to rest. Raquel does not want to because she wants to stay with Mia. She asks Andres if Miriam is going to fight for custody of Benjamin. He confirms that she is, but tells Raquel that there may be something that can keep her from proceeding.

Bebo goes looking for Jose Fumeneces. He finds him and asks him to help him to prove that Nacho was at home the night Carolina was murdered. Jose tells him that he made many pizza deliveries and it would be hard to remember but Bebo reminds him that the night in question he delivered a pizza and he was jumped and Nacho helped to scare the robbers away. Jose does remember that night and will go with Bebo to see if he remembers Nacho.

Raquel goes to Santi where he tells her that they found the gun that killed Carolina and it has a fingerprint that they are analyzing. He also informs her that Nacho found the possible alibi in the pizza delivery man. Raquel then tells Santi that Miriam is already starting to fight for custody. Santi goes insane and says that he will not allow anyone to take Benji away from him.

We begin where we left off yesterday as Os is bitten by the viper, Rulo not knowing what to do, who finally leaves Os who is in a great deal of pain, in the stream to fend for himself.

Andrea arrives at Antonio’s just as he is arriving home. She explains that Julio is in charge of the money that her parents left for her, but the truth is because of his behavior of late, she doesn’t trust him. So she asks Antonio to go through the expenses with her because she just doesn’t like Julio’s attitude after dealing with trying to help out Medfer’s expenses when they were shut down. Then she mentions that she remembered that Julio also sold Os’ car and lied about it, saying that it was stolen instead. Antonio nods and agrees to help, but also lets her know that he has never gotten along with Julio and did not like the idea of having to confront him like this. She asks if he wants to think about it and he says, “There is nothing to think about. You can count on me.”

Caer en Tentacion #54, 1/4/18: The Secret Not Even Santiago Knew

En el Pasado
A tearful Carolina confesses to Damian that it was her father who attempted the violation. He used to fondle her inappropriately when he got drunk. At the same time he would beat Vicente unmercifully. He never beat her. In fact, when he wasn't drunk, he was nice to her. He treated her like a princess. One night he showed up drunker than usual and it was obvious to both young siblings that he intended to attack Caro sexually. Vic intervened. He knocked out the dad and later dragged him away. His body was found in the river the next day. Everyone assumed he fell in because he was drunk. He did it to save her.

At Raquel's house, meanwhile, she and Santi continue their heart-to-heart talk about--who else, Caro. Santi feels Caro deserves someone better than he--he's just a simple man with an ordinary life and an ordinary household. Raq tries to dispel his impression by using the same words on him that three years later he would use with her, "If you could see yourself the way I do, from my perspective, you would see yourself differently. You are a man of great accomplishment."

Julieta and Robert are alone on the beach while Dave is happily playing soccer with the other kids. Julieta is so happy having a family. Robert is happy that finally they are fulfilling one of their dreams. Julieta says that she never thought that all of this would have happened just by moving into that apartment. Robert adds ‘and that he would find his family.’ Julieta adds a great family it is. She admits she is just kidding. He asks if she is sorry about him having found his family. No, because if he had not found them, they probably would not be where they are today. She asks if he is sorry for having married her. How could he be sorry if he is more in love than ever?
