Amar A Muerte, 12/28/18, Episode 39: Emotional Torture Takes All Forms


  • Dumb as a doorknob crook #2 loses his gun in the all but emptied parking garage to the sure, swift moves of the real El Chino who is still embodied in Beltran.  Belchin' and Barbara unceremoniously dump DADC #1 out of his car and bleed tread hightailing it to Mexico by way of the highway. 
  •    
  • Lucia works her wiles on Sr. Armenta and cons him into signing a formal agreement to keep his word regarding what he and she discussed during their interview (I believe).  Knowing her true background, she explains, he, as a violent man, must also accept that it costs her a lot of effort to believe he'd keep his word.  Politicians don't keep their word, but him, yes.  (Guess he figures because he knows his salad fork from his dinner fork, his kind are set apart somehow.  Fuchi!)  He takes the pen and we assume tries impressing her by putting pen to paper.

At the office, Lucía is told that several calls have been made to LCJ but he isn’t answering; so Lucía decides to call him herself. Lucía stomps into her office and calls LCJ, but he still refuses to answer. He closes the safe and places a document into his inside pocket. Lucía leaves a message that it is urgent that she talk to him about the dinner with Servando. She has to be at the restaurant soon and she wants him to take her…she adds “please.”

Renata is leaving her desk when Guille runs up and tells her that he wants to finish their conversation. Renata turns him down citing that she has to deliver some documents; then she has to leave because she is going to the theater. Guille thinks that would be perfect; they can go see a movie and then go out for a drink and talk. Renata again refuses and tells Guille that he should be going out with his girlfriend; besides, what would the press say if they see him going out with his…secretary? Teo then approaches and asks Renata if she is ready; Renata replies that she is quite ready.   Ouch !

Amar a Muerte, 12/26/2018, Episode 37: Catch me if you can....We Did


In San Antonio, Beltino continues his Oscar-winning performance and asks Fabián who Alacrán is. Fabián replies that Alacrán is a drug trafficker and that those men are his sicarios. They are probably after the same thing he is…they want El Chino. When Barbara asks what they are going to do, Beltino suggests that they invite them in for coffee! (Haha!) …and tell them in a civilized manner that there is no “El Chino” there. Barbara goes with the flow and agrees.
At the scorpion’s nest in Mexico, Gancho urges Alacrán to eat before he hands him one of Lupita’s flyers. Alacrán shouts with glee and is glad that the good news just continue to pile up. When Gancho asks what they should do, Alacrán tells him they will go grab Lupita and have a big party with her.

Mi Marido Tiene Más Familia, Capítulo 73, Tuesday, December 25, 2018; Robert asks Julieta to Renew their Wedding Vows



[I’ve been too busy with Christmas and too tired to do much of a recap today, but here are a few highlights. Feel free to discuss away whatever I’ve missed mentioning:]

Robert continues to woo Julieta at her office. He brings her a nice slinky black dress and they both dance. He presents her with some new wedding rings and asks if she wants to renew their wedding vows. She says yes.

Dani and Gabe come over to tell Blanca that Hermoso is missing. Blanca says she can help out by putting up flyers around and at her dance class. Eugenio wheels himself in and Daniela comes to hug him. Daniela asks if he had an approximate date that Tulio would be done with his rehab. But Eugenio says he just can’t remember. Blanca seems a little concerned but says it’s normal to forget some dates after all the information he has received while gone.

Amar a Muerte, 12/25/2018, Episode 36: A Gathering of (Non)Friends...Make More Coffee, Barb!



Leon/Chino/Jacobo (LCJ) and Guille continue their talk outside on the patio. LCJ wonders why Guille didn’t call the cops. Guille questions what they were supposed to say—that they were drunk and just got the idea to do hold up a liquor store and shoot a man. LCJ starts questioning Guille about that night; so Guille tells him that it was Toño who shot the man. He thinks there were cameras, but they were wearing masks. He confesses that every time he sees one of those masks, he recalls the man lying there in his blood; it’s was horrible, but the man is doing well. When LCJ asks if he has seen the man, Guille admits that he decided to help the man in his recuperation, but he posed as a representative of a foundation. LCJ thinks Guille did the right thing and would like to accompany Guille whenever he goes to see the man. After Guille thanks LCJ, he apologizes for bringing LCJ into the situation; he just needed to let out what he was feeling. LCJ then asks Guille if he has told anyone about the incident; so Guille tells him that he confided in his secretary. He trusts her and, in a way, she is very special. Yes, like in a TN, virtually married if she knows enough to send you to prison, Mr. Sharing.

The fight continues. Robert and Pancho duck and dive like a choreographed team. Vicente's friend ends up on the floor. Pancho takes some salt /spice mix from the bar and throws a handful in Vicente's face. Vicente complains that he cannot see. Robert throws a glass of booze in Vicente's friend's face.
Vicente ends up beating up his own friend since he cannot see who he is punching.

As they embroider, Blanca tells Julieta to just take it easy since this is a delicate task and she has a needle and not a hammer.  Blanca wants to know more about Julieta's first date with Robert.  Julieta, with a smile,  talks about when Robert came to pick her up.   Hugo stood in the doorway to prevent them from leaving being very possessive as he always has been. Blanca supposes that Robert must have had a fiery response. Julieta explains that isnot Robert.  He feels bad after killing a mosquito.  Robert is the most  peaceful person  that she knows. He'd never get involved in a fight.

Excuse Me?  You were ready to fly him down here on your broomstick lady !  Beltino finally gets fed up and tells her to shut up and to look at where they are. Barb is relieved to see that she is back in civilization as Beltino tells her they have the best beer there; he’s going to buy her two so she can shut up. After they enter, the two goons follow.

Beltino is anxious for some good food since the breakfast wasn’t that great. Barb takes offense and tells him she will never cook for him again. A threat or a promise? Beltino responds that she should just accept it; she’s not good in the kitchen…nor in witchcraft or fortune telling. He wonders what she actually is good at. Barb thinks she is dumb and remarks that she doesn’t know why she came with him. When he reminds her of her slice of the money, she points out that she still hasn’t seen any of it.

Johny praises León for being a good man—a man with good values and principles, he was like a father to Johny. After León/Chino/Jacobo (LCJ) asks Johnny what exactly León was to him, Johny hightails it out of there. LCJ smirks in satisfaction for getting to Johny.
Camilo arrives at the club and tries to go in, but is stopped at the door despite telling the guard that they are waiting for him. After the guard closes the door, Cami looks around wondering how he can get in. Inside, Karla is tied up with a bloody nose (probably from that gruesome ring on El Ruso’s pinkie). She asks El Ruso what else he wants, they almost killed her father. They can’t kill her just over a card game, especially after she brought them their money. El Ruso reminds her that she is a gambler, so she should know the rules…a bet is a bet. After the goon adds that a robbery is a robbery, Karla shouts that the money was hers—she won it. As she yells, another goon points a gun at her head while EL Ruso tells her that no one makes fools of them and whoever tries will pay dearly. Karla looks at the goon holding the gun and asks him if he really thinks she is afraid of death, she has already been there. They can send her back and she will be waiting for them. She shouts at him to shoot her.

Blanca answers very much on the defensive and tells Julieta that living with her family shouldn't be felt to be something negative.  It isn't the worst thing that could happen in her life.  Julieta tries to explain that it has nothing to do with Blanca but it has to do with her own expectations for herself.

Dani informs Imelda that even though she respects Imelda she will not let her repeat that her husband is not enough of a man.  Imelda thinks that Gabriel isn't the right man for Dani if he cannot give her a child. Gabriel  does not understand how Imelda could say that when he is currently treating the health problems that he has. Dani won't take Imelda's meddling either. It is her private life and she and Gabriel will solve their own problems. Imelda will not shut up. She just wants more grand children and Dani deserves to be a mother. Gabriel asks if she doesn't think that he also wants to be a father. It is his greatest wish. He will do whatever necessary to have a child and if in the end he cannot, he will still be a good man for Dani. Imelda sighs and shakes her head.

Mi Marido Tiene Más Familia, Capítulo 69, Tuesday, December 18, 2018; Back to Square One


As Vicente comes in, he has a huge bouquet of pink roses for Susana, but she is with Pancho. She says that they are novios but please do not tell their sons because she is going to do it herself. Vicente then confronts her after Pancho leaves and tells her that Pancho is not the man for her because they are so different. Then he refers to him as a “pasajero” or passenger. I think he was referring to Pancho being the type of guy who is transient and just along for the ride and what he can get out of Susana. She tells him to stay out of her life, just concentrate on their sons, not tell her how to run her life because they are divorced. She then asks him to close the door securely on the way out!

At the Cooper home, with the two children fast asleep in their bed, Julieta and Robert discuss the future. Julieta says she doesn’t want to stand in front of his career and doesn’t want to be blamed for his not going to Africa. Robert says since everything has changed, he doesn’t want to go to Africa, since the family is back together. He also says it’s probably the best thing that they accept his mother’s offer to move in with them for a while.

Amar a Muerte, 12/18/2018, Episode 32: Something's Burning



For those who may not have visited a patio for Monday’s episode, Anita posted this comment:
OPEN LETTER TO CARAYCARAY DEVOTEES
A new CarayCaray team is now in place of our departing guru, Jane, aka Melinama. We appreciate from the bottom of our hearts the tireless stewardship of her blog since she started it with Alborada, all those years ago. We want to thank her for letting us take on the job of continuing with and nurturing this blog. We hope we can do it justice.

To note, the storylines, dialog and content of telenovelas have evolved, many in ways which we don't like or approve. The English language has also evolved and what used to be offensive is now part of social content nation-wide. That goes for standard English broadcasts that are populating the cable and the airwaves as well. We who want to, change with the times, or filter out what is objectionable.

We recap and follow telenovelas for the pleasure of being in a community interested in telenovelas, Spanish language and Central and Latin American culture. The Univision and Telemundo products offered, drive the conversations.

If you have noticed that the number of telenovelas recapped, comments and "hits" on each recap is way down from days of yore, it can be assumed it may stem from the availability of closed captions getting better. Plenty of non-Spanish speakers have drifted off. What is left is a community of like-minded spirits who enjoy the conversations after the recap is posted. We hope each one of you are and continue to be one of them.

And now for the TN--

JohnyBStalled is at the gate with Fabricio who wants to talk to him. Fabricio convinces him to wait by telling him that when he had a problem, he would talk it over with Don León, but now that he isn’t  here… Johny lifts his collar and agrees to hear out Fabricio. Meanwhile, in the study, Leon/Chino/Jacobo (LCJ) and Lucía are engrossed in studying their mouths and necks. (Oh Joco, how did you know about that little place on my neck that sends me into OR-BIT?” Um..duh..er lucky guess sweets.”) Fabricio tells Johny about his father is very ill (Johny is probably thinking, “And? Do you think I care?); and he isn’t making enough money and he doesn’t want his father to die. Johny had no idea and gladly agrees to help Fab…and Johny would be ever so grateful if Fab would keep him up-to-date about all the goings-on at the Carvajal house, especially anything having to do with LCJ—what time he leaves, arrives, what he eats (uhmm, Lucía’s tongue right now!), etc… Fabricio agrees.

Pancho runs into Robert in the hall. He notices that there is something wrong. Pancho knows that they aren't buddies or anything but they are on the same side. Maybe they could start over. Robert agrees that perhaps they just got off on the wrong foot. In spite of their quarrels, Pancho likes Robert. He'd like to have a chat with him on the stairs. By the way, Crisanta is back to snore some more in the building. That surprises Robert and he answers in his best "Pancho" imitation with "No manches!" (No way!)

Back at school, Julieta and Dave are happy to see each other.  Dave has missed them all. Susana is taking Sebas out to lunch and Axel will join them. She just wanted to spend some time with her sons. Fernando has come for Dave.  He reminds Julieta of the visitation schedule the judge set up. She tells him about how much she missed Dave and just had to see him. She didn't want to go against him or the judge. Fernando asks her to just let him be Dave's dad.  Fernando leaves with Dave.

Amar a Muerte, 12/12/2018, Episode 29: Which Ones Are the Bad Guys? Oh, They Are ALL Bad


Recap by Kirby J


The tension continues as León/Chino/Jacobo (LCJ) tells Armenta that Lucía will come through, but Armenta is getting impatient waiting while Lucia negotiates with Montilla and tells LCJ that he is fed up, Lucía is taking too long with the mayhem caused by the cops. As Armenta tells LCJ that his time is up and points Juanita (his lovely pistol) at his head, main goon leader rushes in to tell Armenta that the cops are leaving. Armenta wonders what saint LCJ prays to, but then tells him that the Saint must not have heard him.

Out in the corridor, Lucía thanks Montilla for saving her life and that of her chauffeur’s. Montilla is upset and chides Lucía for provoking such a big sting operation just because of her impertinence. Whatever happens next will be her responsibility, and she needs to respect the police. Lucía apologizes, and when they turn to go inside they hear a gunshot!
Karla arrives home and sees all the disorder. When she goes inside and sees Pedro passed out on the floor and runs to him. She tries to bring him to, but he is unconscious so she calls for an ambulance. As she talks to the operator, she sees the note from “El Ruso” (long-bearded goon) which demands that she return the money or there will be more beatings of those close to her.

Mi Marido Tiene Más Familia, Capítulo 65, Tuesday, December 11, 2018; Julieta plays the “blame game” or Susana and Pancho become Novios



We begin where we left off yesterday, with Audifáz receiving his much deserved slap in the face by Polita. [Yes he did beg for it!] She really stands up for herself this time and shuts him down. She tells him that even though they had nothing previously and were poor, at least they all had each other and they were a united family. But now, that is not the case since he has changed so much. Now, he is leading them to a ditch that they will never be able to climb out of. Audifáz  won’t back down though and says that Ari cannot return. Then he self-righteously walks away. Ari hugs his mother as she cries, apologizing and trying to comfort her.

Daniela and Gabriel settle on a cute little white dog together. They name him “Hermoso.” Then Dani makes a list of the dog chores and says that the dog cannot sleep with them. Gabe mentions having children in the future and she imagines herself holding a baby.

Amar a Muerte, 12/11/2018, Episode 28: Go Away, Little Boy! OR I am Woman, I Am Strong!



Recap by Rgv Chick



Previously: Armenta reminds Lucía that she doesn’t need a weapon to kill someone; she has the newspaper and more power than she realizes. She suggests that they use that power…together

Leon/Chino/Jacobo (LCJ) is quite impatient and stands up. As he is about to ask henchie something, another henchie comes out and tells him to follow him inside. As he walks in, Lucía motions him to stay calm. Armente mocks him for being the sought-after chauffeur and suggests he should ask for a raise after that escape. When LCJ asks Lucía if she needs something, (Yeppers Chof, trot down to 7-11 and get me a Latte and a hand grenade) Armenta quickly points out that HE sent for him. He wants LCJ to record the conversation that he and Lucía are about to have…a historic event that is about to happen.

Amar a Muerte, 12/10/18, Episode 27: Q-Where oh Where is El Chino Valdes?

A-In two places at once. (Broma)

*Johny is on his way (presumably) to the office. He always seems to wear the same suit and tieless shirt (should be quite ripe by now, after 27 episodes). His fancy red car has been defiled by a nasty yellow note which reads, “How often do you think of me?” It freaks him out. What a way to start the day. To make matters worse, he can’t reach Lucia.

*Lucia and her chofer linger over their early morning kiss. It’s a lot like coffee, though. It wakes Luci up to realize what she’s been doing and sends LCJ away. She needs to be alone. Although he doesn’t believe her, he strides out, still breathless from the passion spent, or rather, unspent.

*At their breakfast nook, Mateo and Eva are pissed by the news in or not in the papers. Mateo’s article is missing and all Eva can see are the competing headlines featuring Luci. Eva is sure Luci’s not going to get away with it as she has no idea who she’s dealing with. And Mateo thinks Eva does? It sounds like she is defending those scalawags. No—Eva is only defending her family, the family business and Mateo.

Lucia is surprised to take a late night phone call from the head of the Armente Family.  He asks if she meant what she said on tv or was just posing for the Press.  He's willing to take her at her word for a sit-down.  Yes, it will be in a public place and he'll call her back with a couple of choices.  NO cops or media present or else!  He's a man of his word and she can trust him not to pull anything on her.  "--You wanted to talk and that's what we'll do." 

Across town, Carla counts her cash.

Lupita bemoans the fact that now they need to disappear and have no money to make the move.  Julieta says it's no use because those two men will follow them to the ends of the earth; no matter where they try to escape to, they'll find them.

Amar a Muerte, 12/5/2018, Episode 25: Coming Home Is So Special

Recap by Kirby J

So we left off with Loosey and Leon/Chino/Jacobo (LCJ) arriving home after their “release” (no one can imagine what kind of “release” they really had…but didn’t happen according to Loosey). Johny is interrogating Loosey about what happened between her and LCJ; so she comes back with, “Must I remind you that I was just kidnapped…that we were trying to escape? …What is wrong with you?” As he holds her head (as if wanting to force her real thoughts out of her head), JonEvil admits that she is right and thanks her because no one understands him the way she does…and no one respects him the way she does. Menacingly, he adds that no one knows him the way she does...and if she is lying to him, he’ll kill him. (LCJ)   He forces a kiss on her and hugs her, but Loosey wants to take a bath ( as she tries to push herself away)…she needs to take a bath because she is very cold ( and smelly?). As JonEvil releases her and leaves, Loosey looks back at him in horror.

After the judge gives his judgement in Fernando’s favor, Fernando goes to him and promises that everything will be just fine. Then Julieta goes to embrace David, crying. “I don’t want you to leave.” Robert has tears in his eyes.

Susana and Pancho are having a good time at the Guelaguetza festival. Susana looks very happy and has red carnations in her hair. They dance and have fun watching the parade through town. It’s almost a Mardi Gras type of celebration with all the colors and dancing. Susana says that Pancho takes her out of her comfort zone and she enjoys herself. They enter into a gift shop to get gifts for their families. She asks Pancho how things are going with his kids, especially Temo. She relays how she thinks Axel will move out and that one day Sebas will become a teenager and never speak to her again. They decide on some gifts for the family. Pancho buys a heart shaped pendant for Susana, so she can keep him near her heart.

Amar a Muerte, 12/4/2018, Episode 24: It Never Happened, OK? Fer Sure??


Lucía and Leon/Chino/Jacobo (LCJ) are still in the water enjoying their looong kiss (while the goons are probably closing in, but they don’t seem to care). As they continue their passionate kisses, she takes off his shirt; she slips off her dress…next to come off is her bra (as the water starts to steam). They break apart briefly, looking into each other’s eyes, then continue their fierce display of desire. LCJ stops and looks up, as does Lucía, as a flock of birds flies above. (LCJ relieved that they weren’t giant moths).

Mi marido tiene más familia Monday 12/3/18 Capítulo 60 A Nightmare Becomes Reality

Linda is out with Iker at a café for what turns out to be a "book date". He explains that through books we can travel to many different places at the same time. He shows her a couple of classics like "A Thousand and One Nights" and a play by Aeschylus. She is not too excited by those but is interested in a book by Jane Austen, one of the first feminists,  that he describes as about a woman who grows up in a time when women had to follow societal norms: marry and be dependent on a man. Linda asks if the character gives up men in the end. Iker explains that she finds a man who challenges her,  but in the end excites her as much as he makes he despair.  Linda thinks about Axel. She tells Iker she will have to read that one.

Clarisa stops by to say goodbye to Axel.  She was good with him but he was just playing her. From now on she will devote herself to someone who really values her. Axel looks happy but a little  sad when she leaves.

Amar a Muerte, 11/30/18, Episode 22: Risking It All And All A Part Of The Risk


Parte 1~~
Running through the jungle.....🎸(apologies to Creedence Clearwater Revival)


Montilla has found the cell phones left as a taunt but not the kidnapped Lucia and Jacobo, aka León, aka, Leonchin, aka Jacón, aka Jake.  He screams at the underling detective to get the dogs out to track them somewhere up the mountain.  Otherwise, if they don't find them and quick their reps have been risked --and lost.  They'll be the laughing stock of the whole of Mexico.

It's a smart idea, that, since the kidnappers are running somewhere...but it's to another couple of getaway cars. These miscreant thugs have been to this kind of rodeo a time or two.
