La candidata Friday 7/21/17 Capítulo 29: Natalia Tries to Escape/Regina: A Woman on a Mission
OR: Omar Goes Around the Bend OR: Too Much Coke and Insomnia Do Not a Pretty Cecilia Make
Cecilia's apartment--Hernán arrives at Cecilia's and in her drugged state she answers the door. He is not happy with her less than enthusiastic greeting and wants to know if this is how she treats her friends. Lifeless Cecilia has no time to fight with him and closes the door. Suddenly, she comes to life when she hears him shouting through the door that he has info on Lorena Sánchez. This time when she opens the door she is all perky. Hernán knows where Lorena lives and also that Larreta is not the only guy she is seeing. As a matter of fact, right now she is with somebody very special: the Gov. Voilà! He has a video on his phone of Alonso and Lorena having sex. Cecilia can barely look.
The hospital--It is morning and Regina and Gerardo have fallen asleep on a couch in the waiting area next to each other. They wake up and the doctor informs them that Noemí made it through the night but now she has an infection so they are running tests to see which antibiotic will work the best for her. Gerardo tells Regina that they need to be positive. Regina is worn out but does show a sign of life with a smile when she realizes that he spent the whole night with her. Gerardo wants to always be there in her arms but it is 6:00 a.m. and Regina tells him the time has come for him to get going because she needs him fighting in the senate. She cannot count on her fellow senators because they will do whatever Larreta or Alonso tells them. He will call her later. They have a quick kiss and he is gone but not soon enough. It just so happens that Mario has arrived and his first question to Regina is what was that guy Gerardo doing there. Barely hiding her annoyance. Regina pretends he asked about her mother and tells him that she made it through the night. Mario catches on and asks how his wife is. Regina adds that she now has an infection and is in isolation. Mario returns to his original question about Gerardo. Regina stands up and tells him that Gerardo came to open her eyes to what kind of a man her father is.

La Candidata 7.17.17 Chapter 26: Cecelia Reveals That She…(Recap Below)
Natalia thinks she arrived at the worst time but Omar chides her for showing up unexpectedly, especially because it’s his house. Natalia reminds him that it’s their house but Omar reminds her that she gave up all her rights when she left. Natalia demands Marcia leave but Omar grabs Natalia and tries to throw her out though Jose immediately stops him. Marcia opts to leave but Omar asks her to stay because Natalia disrespected their house first so she has no right to demand anything of him. Jose leads Natalia up to her room as Omar orders them to get everything of hers out of the house and never come back. Marcia tries to leave again but Omar apologizes for what happened and explains that he has nothing to do with Natalia anymore. Omar hugs and kisses Marcia as Natalia shakes her head from atop the staircase. Marcia, though Omar doesn’t notice, seems to be throwing up in her mouth.

Mario warns Isela to be quiet and patient as he takes care of the problem. He hangs up on her and goes into the living room to call Almiron. He looks around to make sure no one is listening and then tells Almiron that he needs his help ASAP to rescue his daughter. Noemi walks in and listens to the tail end of the conversation before asking Mario which daughter he is referring to and who he was speaking with. Mario closes his eyes and sighs.
Ignacio explains to Gerardo that he was able to spare Nayeli jail time in exchange for him burying the story about Cecelia’s connection to prostitution and the cabaret. Gerardo reiterates that he did kill the story but Ignacio shows him the news report from the morning paper. Gerardo assumes it was Rodrigo’s friend, the reporter, who did so without his knowledge but he wants to know what this has to do with Nayeli. Ignacio reminds him that favors need to be paid but Gerardo thinks this is just blackmail, pure and simple, and they should go to the police. Ignacio tells him that Nayeli will end of in prison if they do before going back inside his house.

Ignacio and his daughter Nayeli come out of the police
station and she’s in tears trying to explain herself and apologize. She says
that the drugs were just for fun and entertainment, she really isn’t a drug
addict. “I just don’t know who you are anymore”, says Ignacio. How long have
you been into this? What kind of entertainment is this anyway?” “Oh Daddy, I’m
so scared!” Iggy says, “Help me out here because I no longer know what to do
with you.” He hugs her.

but Regina isn’t there yet. She is on her way, but is keeping everyone in
suspense. Obviously, she doesn’t really want to be there. Shortly after Alonso
takes the podium, Emiliano motions to his father that his mother is there. He escorts
her in as Alonso announces her to the audience and she presents herself as the
first lady to be. Gerardo is watching on TV and is very upset and throws down
his remote. His secretary leaves the room after offering to do something to
help. He storms out as well. Alonso goes on at the event thanking his family
and talking about how he plans to fight corruption and violence in Mexico. (Yeah buddy, you are
part of the problem!
) The audience applauds…

OR: Alonso Suddenly Becomes Befuddled When Trying to Define "wife beater" OR: Magda--the Monkey in the Middle-- Reveals Herself to Be the Snake in the Grass She Is
Action at the Government offices--
Cecilia questions Lorena her about her politics, studies and preparation so she can use the info to start introducing her to the public via the press. Lorena throws a wrench in the works: she is not sure she will be accepting the position. Lorena is surprised to find out that Cecilia knew that Larreta was not in favor of her taking the position and that the info had come via the Gov. Cecilia knows that Lorena and Larreta are lovers. Lorena rightly concludes that the reason for her being offered the position was just a ploy from the Gov to get to Larreta. Cecilia then launches into a pep talk telling Lorena it does not matter why she was offered the position but that she should take it for herself; consider it a reward because she has earned it. Who knows about Larreta? He could trade her in for a newer model any day. She should not turn the position down and then later be sorry for her decision. Later, Lorena gives Larreta the bad news that she is going to do something for herself. She will be accepting the Gov's offer. She does not care how this affects him. By the way, she would do anything to get that job.

La candidata Friday 6/16/17 Capítulo 12: Omar Threatens Natalia
OR: "Mujer honrada, la pierna quebrada y en casa" (An honorable woman is at home with a broken leg.) This classic Spanish proverb is alive and well in the misogynist world of "La candidata".
Alonso accuses Cecilia of lying to him. He never told her to do that. Cecilia thinks back on it all. Mauro told her and she thought they were Alonso's orders. That is why she got close to Hernán; to control him. She asked him to withdraw the information he was going to publish. Alonso wants to know if Mauro also asked her to sleep with Hernán. Cecilia just looks at the floor.
A very upset Emiliano, in the middle of Hugo's medical emergency, calls Regina. He says he is at Hugo's house and Hugo is dead from pills he took. Hugo's mother is blaming him for it all. Regina calls an ambulance. Emiliano needs to stay put, Regina is on her way.
Gerardo gets home and Ximena is there in tears. She comes clean about lying to him the night before. Her mother was not home when he called and she ended up going out herself. She informs Gerardo that Teresa is up to her old tricks: she is asking her for money again. Furthermore, she said that Teresa wanted to make a pact not to tell him about it. Teresa also hit her. Then she started taking everything out of the house saying she was going to sell it all. She cannot/does not want to live with her. Gerardo discovers that Teresa followed Ximena back to his place and that Teresa stole his father's watch. He shakes his head in exasperation.
Natalia informs Omar that she does not want to/cannot get back together with him. Omar says it is her choice. If she chooses to leave him, he will kill her. He will not allow her to expose him in front of everybody. It is bad enough that she came to stay at their son's house. How much more is she planning on humiliating him? Natalia thinks he should be in prison for killing Javier. No, he will be in prison for killing her, the damned ingrate she is. Natalia threatens to scream. Omar doesn't care because nobody will come to her aid. The time has come for her to end her tantrum. Come home with him or he will kill her on the spot. He proves his point when he takes out a gun.
