Papa a Toda madre #95/96 5.31.18: Bite You Once, Shame On The Snake, Bite You Twice, It's a Novela

Capitulo #95: A Time Jump and a Smoke Signal

Mauricio urges Anifer to tell him what Fabian told her, because she won’t get in trouble, and Anifer confesses everything and worries that he won’t love her in the future, because they aren’t blood related. Mauricio tells her not worry, because she is his daughter, no matter how old he gets. Anifer makes him promise, and he does, and also promises not to lie to her again, especially after lying about his relationship with Maria. Maria assures her that her relationship with Mauricio won’t affect her relationship with her, they are both adults, and came deal with their issues without involving her. Anifer nods and Maria also tells her that they won’t take her to see Fabian as often. Anifer worries that he won’t get better unless they visit him, but Maria tells her that his well-being doesn’t depend on them.

The next morning, Jorge gets dressed as Dulce smiles from bed and asks if he wants to go for Round 2. Jorge tells her that he is in a hurry now, so she proposes that they do it that night though Jorge promises to let her know when it’s time. She smiles and announces that she’s going to show then but asks for a kiss. Jorge obliges and scurries out, afraid she will get grabby again, and Dulce screams that she loves him.

Por Amar Sin Ley, 5/30/18 Chapter 61 Miercoles: Consequences



Chapter 61: Consequences
I'm Christopher Mason. We were always told in our childhood science class that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. When we are adults these are often the result either of mistakes or acts of malice. Tonight we will see a variety of people who have to face The Consequences.
  • Elena told Alejandra in no uncertain terms that she did not want Ricardo near her children.
    “I don't want any father near my children who doesn't worry about them when it's so easy for him to abandon them for just any woman.”
    “Don't be such a manipulator,” was Alejandra's reply.
    “Does it look alright that they saw him [???] with another woman?”
    “I'd like to talk to them.”

Papá a toda madre Wednesday 5/30/18 Capítulo #94: "You Knew I Was a Snake When You Picked Me Up"--OR--"No Matter How Much a Snake Sheds Its Skin, It is Still a Snake"

Dear Patio Members, This most excellent recap is courtesy of Alfredo. The commentary in parentheses is all my own. Jarifa

Anifer's teacher calls Maria to let her know that Fabian wants to see Anifer. Maria is shocked. (Did she expect him to play by the rules????)

As Flor and Socorro get dinner ready, Socorro apologizes for ruining her peace and quiet and her beautiful house. Flor agrees and begins to call them all pigs as Ciceron arrives and asks Socorro for a coffee. She goes to make it but Flor wonders if he doesn't have hands to do it himself. Ciceron smiles and reminds her that he has someone to do it for himself, so he doesn't. Ciceron then notices that Carmelita's picture is missing and demands to know where it is. Flor tells him that she put it away and put a family picture (Neron, Milady and Flor) instead because it is now her house and not Ciceron's or Carmelita's. They begin to argue again about who own the house when Ciceron reminds Flor that Neron and her aren't married so, therefore, she has no rights to the house. He storms off as Socorro comes back with the coffee and wonders where he went or if he's mad. Flor is fuming. (Flor is into her perpetual grammar corrections: preterite tense second person singular does not have an "s" on the end which is something that Nerón, Socorro and Cicerón always want to add).

Por Amar Sin Ley, 5/29/18 Chapter 60: A Very Vega Version

                                                 The Vega Family on the march.

“Elena is a woman off her rocker!” Ricardo has reached his limit with her.  She’s unmasked herself in front of Ric The Brick's entire legal family.  Of course, Benjamin gets off a cheap shot about couldn't you've guessed and gotten out ahead of this?  It's your specialty, after all. He smiles knowingly at Leticia who’s also put in her three and a half cents’ worth of finger pointing and claiming her BFF, Vexlena's “got a possible good reason for this, HUH?” before Gustavo shuts her down and puts her in her place.   Still, Elexlena and Company have done just enough to drag Ric over the coals a bit more serving him so publicly in front of the entire law firm.

However, the Vega Family closes ranks and it becomes A Very Vega Vision vitiating Vexlena's new found legal strategy.  Alonso says they’re in the tank with Ric and will help him overcome this injusticia.  Viewerville has flashbacks of the Brady Bunch ala Mexico, now all grown up and legal beagles for Firm Vega, El Justiciero.  Visions of viewing the Brady Bunch's Mexican cousins: The Vega Family on the legal march for one of its own.  “--One for all and all for one!!”—Oooops.  Sorry, that’s a different vision and the next country over, and a few centuries in the past.

Papa a Toda Madre #93: Trust Is the Name of the Game and No One Is Playing...

Or Kiss Like No One (Except Your Daughter) Is Watching

Ariel shows Renee and Mauricio the documents the private investigator gave him confirming that Noel was never in the rehabilitation clinic. Mauricio thinks Ariel’s story doesn’t make any sense, but Ariel explains that Noel could’ve been hiding out. Mauricio nods but Renee reminds them about the woman who called and told her Noel was at the bus station and left. Ariel doesn’t think so and promises to find Noel; Renee gives him a big hug as Mauricio watches.

Dulce can’t believe Jorge doesn’t believe her when she said her savings come from years of hard work. She tells him that she could’ve left with all her money elsewhere, but she chose them over everything. Jorge nods but asks that she left the twins to him and she can take care of everything else while they get on their feet. Dulce smiles and caresses his hand, reminding him that the best part of a fight is the reconciliation, but Jorge rejects her advances.

Por Amar Sin Ley, 5/28/18 Chapter 59 Lunes: Children's War



Chapter 59: Children's War
I'm Christopher Mason. Normal peace between parents and children is valued often because it is scarce. Often when parents are trying to protect their children from deserved punishment or imagined wrongs there is what is called Collateral Damage. When children become adults there is often different conflict. When either side is in the wrong it is usually difficult to put it right. We therefore will now see examples of Children's War.
  • Ricardo and Alejandra talked briefly about the latest Elena crisis before taking leave of each other until the next day. They kissed, she left his office, and he looked at the photo of his children with great concern.

As soon as they walk into the room, Manolita, a five-year-old, runs to them and introduces herself. When she tells them that though she is very big, she would like to have a family, R&R are quite touched.

Curly-top Vicente has got himself a Curly-Top Lawyer who squares off with Carlos muy bien. No one seems to have much evidence, but then it's not that kind of show. 

Carlos: Your client killed the minor character!

CTL: My client says YOUR client killed the minor character!

Carlos: My client says otherwise!

CTL: Well, DUH.

Vicente: I don't wanna go to jail!

CTL: It will only be for a short time.

Carlos: It will be for a wicked LONG time.

CTL: Let's go outside and hold an impromptu press conference where we say the same things, but with more head-tossing and nostril-flaring.

Papa a Toda Madre Capítulo 90, Friday May 25, 2018; Fabian may never walk again, or will he?



(I’ve named this episode, “Fabian may never walk again” but since this is a TN, I’m banking that he will in a few more episodes have a “miraculous recovery.”)

We begin with Lili and Pablo going apartment hunting. They eye one that is several stories high and looks like a decent place. So they go up to see it. Lili thinks it might be a penthouse, but it turns out to be a single, plain room, like an attic room. Lili is not pleased and you can tell that she does not want to live there. But Pablo has grand ideas about how he can paint the place, put in curtains and plants and make it a lovely place to live for them. Soon Lili is smiling and they kiss.

At Jorge’s Dulce sets the table as Jorge is working on the household budget. It doesn’t look good and he doesn’t look happy. Dulce has a few ideas that don’t sit well with Jorge regarding Lili and Pablo. Jorge walks away saying, “My grandchild will be living here.”

    • Ricardo and Alejandra finally spend the night together and in the same bed. (Viewerville was taking bets on whether he’d catch Ale’s zipper in that beautiful lace dress, but something tells me high maintenance Elena had trained him well!)

    • On the other side of town, Fer stayed asleep on the couch and Juan beside her.  She wakes up probably close to midnight and he wakes then also and walks her home.  Not to worry, his mama called hers and explained already.
 
    • At the scene of Imelda’s attempted murder, Alan and Carlos piece together the probable facts to the pictures.  Alan discovers some pomade that’s used for new tattoos in her room along with a diary/journal of sorts.  Carlos looks around and determines that Vicente’s DNA should be found on the drapery cord then it’s a slam dunk about the boy’s murder.  However, why would he attempt to kill them; there has to be some reason.

Papa a Toda Madre #89 5.24.18: I Don't Want Her BUT You Can't Have Her Either

Or When A (Man) Child Can't Share

Noel tries to escape by holding the door open with his cane, but he is caught immediately, subdued, and dragged back to his room while the nurse injects him with his “medicine.”

Tono and Veronica bring Fidel back home and let everyone know that he had nothing more than a stuffy nose. Tono then asks Esperanza to take the kids for a bath and she obliges, slightly annoyed. Once alone with Tono, Veronica asks him to lay off his mother, because everyone makes mistakes, but he thinks she’s too old to care for the kids and, therefore, doesn’t trust her. Either way, Veronica thinks they should care for the kids, if they are going to be home, but Tono is adamant that she’s too old (but still leaves them with Esperanza so he and Veronica can go to the cooperative company meeting).

I'm Christopher Mason. Rats come in all sizes, shapes, and colors. They are both scavengers and predators and they respect neither age nor assets. In our story tonight we will see several get very close to or fall into the traps set for them.
  • Alonso told off Marrufo, telling him that as soon as the rapists are sent to prison so will he. Marrufo – arrogant as usual – denied this, in the full belief that he was bullet-proof. Jaime told him that when he acquitted the rapists he abused their victim. He insisted that Alexa's accusations were false, which Alonso reminded him was not proven in his courtroom. Marrufo took out his cell, saying he was calling his lawyer. He thoroughly believed that he would get out of this cesspool of corruption.

(See, Johnny. Sometimes Mama does know best!)  Happy, happy! Joy, joy!!  Juanito attaches a “my love” to his excited comments.  Fer smiles that it’s the first time he’s done that.  They celebrate with a loving lip-lock as, we assume, Mama approves in the background.

Or "Fired?! Again?!" God Bless Esperanza And Her Patience

Hey All! Slicing and Dicing Has Begun! :( Please find the recap for 86 below and Jarifa's summary for 87 in the comments. Thank you! :)

Dulce asks Jorge for some help because he’s making a lot of money at his new job, without doing much, but Jorge is sick of her and storms out of the house. He doesn’t realize, however, that he left one of the documents on the dining room table and Dulce gets her hands on it before inspecting the logo, looking for more information.

Renee goes to her house and tells Rafael and Rodrigo that her house is almost hers again but she’s now unsure of what to do: stay and rent it out to them or finally sell it. She has to also consider how expensive Maryland is going to be before making a final decision. They nod and then Rafael goes to answer the door for Ariel before they both leave as they have to go to do a seminar at the police station for parents who are adopting. Once alone with Renee, Ariel invites her out for the night because he’s going back to the US tomorrow. She wonders why he didn’t tell her before, but Ariel is silent.

  • Leonardo and Roberto succeeded in getting injunctions pending appeal on the three rapists who escaped justice. They thanked Sonia who told them that this was exactly what happened when they appealed Carlos Ibarra's case. She considered him guilty; Leonardo reminded her that he was released due to lack of hard evidence. They told her that they are coming up with a new suspect list, which includes Tatiana. She was a bit incredulous at this as Tatiana had been a prosecution witness, but they met her halfway by suggesting that they get Carlos to surrender his passport until the case is concluded. She was satisfied with this and said she would issue the appropriate orders.

When he asks her what time she will be returning, Dulce tells him she won’t be returning at all; he will never see her again in his life (one good thing going for Isaurotten). Isauro accuses her of having looked for someone else already since he can’t give her the life of luxury she likes. (He just finished that book, 'If they will do for you, they will do it to you'?) She then tells him that she looked into his phone and saw everything he was doing with Valentina. She also saw the messages to his associates and saw that, fortunately, none of his plans panned out. As he starts to tell her that she knows nothing, the cops bang on the door and call out his name. Isauro curses Dulce; and Dulce tells him that this time his influential contacts won’t be able to help him; she hopes he rots in jail. The cops kick open the door and arrest Isauro (Bye, Bye!

Por Amar Sin Ley, 5/11/18 Chapter 49: Loose Lips

IT'S BUFETE VEGA NIGHT AT THE CLUB MIX'N'MATCH...

...and the gang's all there (except Alonso, who has never once had fun in his entire life.) They spend the whole evening talking to each other, so it would have been way cheaper to buy a bottle and go to someone's house, but there probably wouldn't have been enough rooms for all the breakout sessions.

Conversations have been paraphrased for underlying intent.

***
Vic: I hate to butt in, DIMWIT, but Ale broke up with Carlos like ages ago. What are you waiting for?

Ric: QUE QUE QUE? But Carlos told me everything was hunky-dory!

Vic: And you believed him? What kind of a lawyer are you? (Not paraphrased; she actually said that. Gotta love Victoria.)

***
Oli: It's so nice to be out! I've had an irrational fear of nightclubs since The Thing.

Leo: I won't let anything bad happen to you! I can promise that because I have taken off my glasses and am now Superman!

Oli: Ooo let me hug you with inappropriate clinginess.

Flor is performing her “psychic” act and gleefully tells everyone that the Cooperative will be a grand success! And even Jorge starts to dance. Mau just looks over at Jorge as though to say, “Hey dude, I didn’t know you could let loose like that!” [Hey, this alone was the most entertaining part of the night, getting to find out that Jorge has some moves]

Valentina is on her phone texting with “Dani” AKA Isauro, AKA Dulce’s skuzzy gangster boyfriend. “Dani” tells her that it’s too bad he can’t go and meet her tomorrow because early in the morning his family is taking a trip and so he will be unavailable for a while. “I am dying to meet you. But how about now?” Dani says. “Now?” says Valentina. “I just don’t know how I can get out without anyone noticing.  I’ll let you know if I can go.” “Dani” says he will stand by and wait for her message. Meanwhile, Dulce comes in and Isauro tells her that it will be soon that they will have the money to get out of the country. Dulce says she is so tired of living in this situation, AKA this dump.

Por Amar Sin Ley, 5/10/18 Chapter 48: Make Me An Offer I Cannot Refuse

    • Ricardo “threatens” sex offender suspect #uno with the full weight of the law to put him behind bars , lock him up and throw away the key.  SoS1, aka,Tavio has a mouthpiece who shows the magistrate at the police station a writ of protection against  atrocities by the legal authorities.  Essentially he doesn’t have to give his statement yet and cannot be thrown in jail, either. (I believe.)

    • El Ciego has a few little things in mind for all the pesos he’s been piling up lately which he brings up to Carlos.  What’s the possibility Carlos can do a little cleaning up for him?  “--Oh, you mean money-laundering?”  El Ciego sniggers over to his guerrero, “--He said it, not me!! Well, you might say that, yeah.”  He notes Alejandra’s picture on the credenza behind Carlos.  Carlos, unshaken, says yeah, they can handle a few soapsuds here and there.

Papá a toda madre Wednesday 5/9/18 Capítulo 79: Renée Hits a Wall--OR-- Rodrigo Chooses Love

It is time for the children's performance at school and everyone is in the audience including Renée and Ariel. The principal informs the audience that after the show, there will be a presentation of educational toys from two toy companies in the gymnasium. The participation of the students will be needed to evaluate their new products. In the wings, Mauricio and Toño wonder what toy Fabián could have brought. They also wonder if he came. Nobody has seen him. Mauricio is then introduced to the audience as the person responsible for the production of the performance and as its director. Mauricio is all smiles as he tells the audience that this production was supposed to be an intensive course on how they do things on Broadway for the children but in the end the one who ended up almost failing the course was him. He learned just as much from their children as from his own daughter. He learned that each of these little monsters is somebody's child, incredible, a natural teacher, valuable, and an advisor. Also, one must remember to treat each and every one as if they were all of our children. Mauricio announces the production which the children named themselves: "Princesses Without Toads and Soccer Players Without Penalties".

Or How To Lie, Lie, Lie like the Rest of Them

At Logatoys, Fabian has another meeting with his cohorts but finds that the second round of focus groups were as terrible as the first. Fabian demands Falcon bring a new batch of kids to Logatoys, so they can try out his “near perfect” robot and he’d better hope the tests come out positive this time.

Rafael is starting to doubt Rodrigo was the ideal man if that’s the case and Renee assumes they are fighting because Rodrigo slept on the couch. Renee tells them that not everything is the end of the world and they should work out it. Rafael agrees and Renee smiles before leaving to figure out what she can do to save Noel.

Alt. Title: Mission Implausible for the Odd Squad

Mau is at the gazebo telling the Coop members that Fabián is not going to give up; he will keep badgering them. He tells them that they can’t be waiting around and that they need to find out what Fabián and Falcón are up to. They need to follow Falcón because Falcón would not be expecting them to follow him; Fabián, on the other hand, is taking precautions for himself….he even electrified his fence. (Mau, are you sure you are not making that up about the fence?) When Toño asks when they should start, Mau responds, “Right here! Right now!” (in English). After they all get up, Nerón asks when they will be doing that, so Toño explains that they will be doing it now…that is what Mau meant when he spoke in English.

Papa a toda Madre, Capítulo 76, Friday May 4, 2018; “I’m Not in Love!”



Mau comes back from his “meeting” that he told Maria he was going to and told her it went well. [Guess he didn’t want her to know he was playing “stand in” with Vero] So she thinks he had a meeting with the cooperative. Then she mentions Fabian and Mau wants to know if he came over. Maria says, “No, not that. It’s just that Anifer is asking about her biological father.” So Mau goes to her bedroom to find out if she is awake and she is. He tells her, “A little bird told me that you were interesting in knowing something about your biological father. I want you to know that if you want to talk to me about it, I’m here for you.” But Ani says, “I just wanted to know if my mother was in love with my father and why he didn’t want to know me. Was he angry with me or my mother?” Mau answers, “I don’t think he was angry. But the most important thing in the world is that you don’t hold that against him.” Mau used the word “rancor” and Ani wants to know what it means. He explains that it means that something turns ugly and stays in the heart, then it’s very difficult to get rid of. “Well I’m not angry with anyone” says Ani. Mau then explains that no matter what happens, it is always important to forgive.  Ani then talks about how he changed girlfriends and went from Renée to Maria.

Chapter 42: Dens of Iniquity

I'm Christopher Mason. The truth can be found in the strangest places. While this is usually thought of as helpful often it is quite distasteful. This is the unpleasant discovery that is made when good people need to enter Dens of Iniquity.

  • Alejandra accused Ricardo of being selfish and thinking only of himself. She was determined to deal with him only as a colleague and nothing else. She felt as though she had never been special to him. Paula tried to convince her to take time to think about this, but she would not be persuaded.

Mr. Bustamante, Veronica’s and Tono’s boss, takes them to her office and announces that the meeting was a complete success and their clients were very impressed.

Por Amar Sin Ley, 4/30/18 Chapter 40: Gustavo--Front and Center--Again

Herewith are your court reporter's hastily jotted shorthand notes. (She pulled double duty today dealing with some pesky, nasty weeds and generally getting her hands dirty.) Tomorrow, she will transcribe, amplify and/or correct, if needed.

* Gus is confronting Ale repeating his pushy (selfish) attempts to leave Isy in ruin--it will serve her right for filing for divorce. She should of thought about that beforehand. Almost nose to nose, he tells Ale HE DOES NOT WISH TO BE DIVORCED. Y punto.

* Carlos is explaining to Alan why he didn't confront and accuse Ale about her behavior. He sure she's got a thing for Bust-a-man-te and he can't risk alienating her. Alan thinks it's mostly in his head.

* Ale tells Gus what he is proposing is not fair to Isy, nor to his son and she's willing to stand up against him for what is right. Gus is yelling that she doesn't have as much experience as he does and she doesn't know who she's up against.
