We have any blog / google experts here? A new problem has arisen with the site

Perhaps one of our bloggers did something odd a couple weeks ago that broke the blog - I just got a notification from google that we have a skyrocketing number of broken links. In the old days I would have asked Kat but I hope we have somebody else who understands this and what to do about it! Contact me at caray@mappamundi.com if you can help. Thanks!

A Que No Me Dejas #135 3.22.17: The Calm After the Pukestorm

Gonzalo reminds Juan, the husband of Celeste who is in critical condition because of the ammonia poisoning, that Alan is also grave danger but Juan doesn’t care; he will demand the hotel for damages. Juan then asks the doctor to take him to his wife but the doctor explains that his wife will be out for the next few hours. Juan reiterates that he will destroy Gonzalo and leaves. Leonel takes the opportunity to pour salt in the wound by reminding them that they will lose everything with Juan’s lawsuit. Valentina tells him that it isn’t the best time to talk about this and Mauricio declares that what Juan does is their problem, not his. Ileana hadn’t thought of the consequences but Leonel is right. Gonzalo doesn’t want to talk about that now and Monica agrees. Leonel is not giving up though: he explains that everything will go to crap but Valentina proposes that they talk to Juan when he’s calmer and offer to pay everything. Leonel reminds her that they are not in LA and their decision will affect everyone involved. Gaston thinks Juan spoke out of anger but Leonel doesn’t think so. He declares that he has the best solution for the Murats.

In the pier, Rene contemplates his life decisions and how they have led him to where he is now. He declares that he doesn’t want Alan to die even though their lives have taken different turns. He cries and thinks about when he and Alan were younger and the best of friends. Rene knows Alan was always a better and more noble person than he was and is sad that this is the price he may have to pay.

Leonel explains that he can prevent Alan going to jail and the Mauva Hotel going to bankruptcy but the price will be all the shares of the hotel. Monica doesn’t think Alan will go to jail but Leonel reminds them that Almudena and Alan were responsible for the food that was contaminated; the first ones that will be demanded will be them. He then tells Gonzalo that he has the power and money to fix things but Gonzalo grabs him by the suit and Gaston and Mauricio try to separate them. Leonel tells them that he can fix everything but if they don’t want his help, oh well! He leaves and Gonzalo begs Mauricio and Gaston to let them punch Leonel, just once. All the women shake their heads at this obvious show of machismo.

A Que No Me Dejas (AQNMD) #133. Monday March 20, 2017. The Calm Before The Pukestorm


The human popsicle stashed in Julieta's freezer has begun to thaw, unbeknownst to our obsessive loon who was too consumed by debilitating angst over the prospect of losing her Corazón 2.0. Here's a preemptive toast to the "unintentional" bullet that will get that skanky brat right between her lying horse teeth! ¡Salud!

Carolina puts her foot down as regards her accidental pregnancy: She will raise her baby as a single mother with dignity. As much as she loves René, she refuses to use her child as a bargaining chip to force a romantic commitment. She also threatens her mother that she would cut all ties with her if any blabbing about the baby to Gonzalo takes place. Carolina doesn't consider her baby a meal ticket to live off the Murats' wealth.

René loses a fortune (un dineral) at the illegal poker table. He retires to the bar to lick his wounds and freak out over his unwanted paternity.

A que no me dejas Episode 132 (3.17.17) Angelique et Monique went to see Débora at the clinique

Didn't see that coming!
We start this episode with Leonel showing surprise before Gonzalo's fair way to see things. Leonel adds that it will be a pleasure not to see anybody from the Murat family again and Gonzalo says that he is actually happier because now that the 100% of the shares are his, with just a signature he can withdraw all charges against Osvaldo and get him off jail.

"But why, why would you do such a thing" asks Leonel "We are ending on a high note here (cerrar con broche de oro), why spoil it?"
-I will because you're the one who should be behind bars, not him".

Empacho con patas
"René", says Carolina "we have a bun in the oven".
"I think you're mistaking me for my brother Alan", replies René, "who is the cook and baker. Maybe you have indigestion?"
"Maybe, the kind that will use a diaper..."
"Well, if that happen to be true, I am sure is not mine"
"Yes it is, I haven't been with anybody else"
"I wouldn't be too sure (No me consta), but anyway, that is your problem not mine"
"I am not carrying this alone, mister!" 
"You don't have to, its easy, abort it" René keeps saying "now go tell the real dad about it"
"I will have a DNA test to prove it! At least your mother didn't aborted you when your father decided he was not marrying her"
"Don't talk about my mother like this"

And things were escalating but thanks to Mauricio and Alexis, who intervene, they didn't get physical.

"Why are you crying?" asks Alexis
"What's going on here" asks Mauricio
"This is a private conversation" yells René, "Leave us alone, damn mute!"

A Que No Me Dejas #130: Don't Forget I Love(d) You...

Leonel meets Mirna, Almudena’s assistant, in the parking garage and offers her a deal: pour a bottle of ammonia into the food that will be served in Mauricio’s presentation and he gives her the money she needs for her mother’s bone marrow transplant. She’s hesitant but he tells her that with the money he will give her she can relocate to the US permanently. It’s up to her but he answers an answer now.

Angelica calls Gisela and tells her that Deborah refused to exonerate Osvaldo. She apologizes but she must stay a couple of more days to try again. Gisela tells her not to worry, she understands, but asks her to do her best to save Osvaldo. When she comes back, they will get everything up to speed. Angelica then asks her about Jaime and Gisela reveals that she asked him for a divorce because she caught Jaime making plans to go away with Almudena. She told Jaime she didn’t love him anymore and doesn’t care about their marriage but she would rather he believe that. Either way, she has her dignity and she’d rather be divorced than stay in a loveless marriage.

At the hotel, Almudena suggests that Gisela wants a divorce because she thinks there’s something between them but Jaime knows her, she would’ve told him if she thought that. Almudena thinks it’s strangely that she would suddenly ask for a divorce though but Jaime thinks it’s logical because of all the times he acted strange. He asked for some time though and he will use that time to see if his new treatment works. If it doesn’t, he’d rather let her go and leave things as they are. Almudena hugs him and Alan sees them.

A Que No Me Dejas (AQNMD) #128. Monday March 13, 2017. The Devil Wears Tacky Animal Print And Cheap Extensions

It’s hay-hitting time at Casa Córdova and the growing unease between Gisela and Jaime is palpable. After he heads to the bathroom, a text message pings on his cellphone and Gisela takes a peek. It’s Almudena confirming their breakfast plans for tomorrow morning. Jaime had told his wife he was going to meet up with Mauricio. Gisela's eyes start shooting sparks of fury. On a brighter note, strangulation by an irate wife is a quicker death than a long painful agony brought on by brain cancer.

At the hospital, the guy who played the doctor in the last four novelas I watched gives the Murats et al. the prognosis we all knew. Tobías is missing a kidney (riñón) and two dozen brain cells. If he doesn’t quit drinking, his next night on the town will be his last.

Almudena and Alexis discuss their respective silent loves and ways to avoid them until the gran final.

A que no me dejas Episode 127 (3.10.17) Ok, ok. I am a schizophrenic, a killer, an ex convict, jealous, possesive, a revengeful torturer and I also lie. Happy? -Julieta

Observing International woman's day, Nuria took the day off. 

We start this episode with Osvaldo in jail asking himself why is all this happening to him.

Then we reprise Alexis and Leonel talk about the mute's sunday event and the tickets that Leonel need. 

"I don't know if it's possible" said Alexis "such a short notice"
"Impossible is not in my vocabulary" replied Leonel, "Now go get them and don't come back without them!!"

Once alone, his thoughts define evil as his first instinct. "Finally my master plan will start. I will destroy you Gonzalo, you and your whole family. I will humiliate you as you did to me in the past, only this time I will prove I am better"

After that, somewhere else, Valentina hugs Gastón happy to see him after about 20 years. Mauricio says he has been looking for her but she was not there in her office.
Valentina is amazed how good Gastón looks despite his age.

"You look exactly the same, with a little gray, of course, but still very handsome" she says.
"I wanted to come early so we could talk" replies the handsome doctor.
"How about the three of us dining together?" asks Mauricio. 
"Perfect, what time?" adds Valentina.
"Is 9 o'clock good?" asks Gastón.
"Perfect!" Valentina and Mauricio say showing synchronicity.
"Thanks! very much for being here" 
"Nothing to thank here!"
"See you tonight"

A Que No Me Dejas: Karmageddon Comes to Cancún 3/10/17

This is by far the longest list of people who deserve comeuppance and therefore the longest article so far on this subject. Due to time constraints at the time I did not post at the halfway mark to list those who had already met their ends, but they are here so we can remember them and ponder their fates. For the rest the standard questions apply:
  1. What do you think the writers did to these characters?
  2. If different from the above, what would you have done instead?
Fire away, amigos. This should be fun.

A Que No Me Dejas #125: The Sea Was Made for You and Me

Almudena chases Alan around the kitchen, offering coffee or trying to make small talk but he’s being distant. She asks him what is wrong since he was fine a few hours ago, and he confesses that he saw her and Jaime hugging in a cafeteria. He thought she was a different type of girl, honest and ethical, but he’s extremely disappointed to know he was wrong and wants nothing to do with her. He leaves and she chases him down the hallway. She screams that he’s wrong and her and Jaime are just friends but Alan reminds her that she goes running every time he calls. He also knows he shouldn’t tell her what to do but his mother did the same thing and it marked him and Rene as well as the Murat family. Almudena swears that she’s telling the truth but he doesn’t want to hear it. He suggests Jaime get divorced so they could be together the right way, not like his mother, who hid in the shadows. He leaves Almudena crying.

The commander announces to Gonzalo, Valentina, Mauricio, Tobias, and Leonel that Nuria will be transferred to the hospital wing of the prison as she awaits her trial. Mauricio wants to know how many years she can possibly receive and the commander confirms that it could be a lot as she has homicide, kidnapping and potential homicide charges against her. Leonel suggests a life sentence and the commander bids them goodbye. Leonel then reminds Tobias of their dinner later that night and Gonzalo asks that he not bring him back too late.

A Que No Me Dejas (AQNMD) #123. Monday March 6, 2017. Julieta Justiciera, A Principled Psycho

Here is a quick review of the main headlines that gripped Dejaslandia yesterday:

• Maimed Murderess Found Near Park Dumpster. Or as our patio regular Lila aptly named this gruesome news item: Payback's a vitch, VIAAATCH! Julieta fed Nuria a soup laced with sulfuric acid AND made her unsuspecting captive thank her for the toxic meal, before burning her hands with a highly corrosive substance and tossing her on a heap of garbage near a public park. Julieta then called the police from a nearby pay phone to anonymously tip them to the whereabouts of famous fugitive Nuria Murat. As she stood over the horrendously deformed body of an unconscious Nuria, Julieta declares with a triumphant smirk that she kept her end of the bargain as promised: "I fulfilled your wish. You are now a free woman, Nuria." When Adriana later calls her aunt to let her know that the Murats appointed a bodyguard to protect her from Nuria, Julieta assures her that Nuria is no longer a threat. I out-villana'd the villana, corazón!

A que no me dejas Episode 122 (3.03.17) I might be a schizophrenic, a killer and an ex convict, but I don't lie! -Julieta

Yummy!
We start this episode with Nuria completely in the hands of Julieta, who not happy with just kidnapping her, she plans on starving her to death so she ends up as Silvia's roommate, just another woman in the freezer. Seeing that Nuria is hungry and thirsty, Julieta starts her punishment teasing her noisily slurping a delicious ice pop tamarindo flavor. 

Meanwhile in the Murat residence, Gonzalo asks Alan where would he and his mother live
once they settled down. 

-I dunno-Alan replies-, maybe by the lagoon or by the beach...
-I want to give you a house.
-No... I don't think I want that and neither my mother...
-Well, this could be our little secret, she doesn't have to know everything. 
-Thanks, but I don't need to hide and/or lie to my mother a house from you, all I want is support, tenderness, love, company, not money...
-Don't misunderstood me-Gonzalo insists-, I need to. I love you too and I would like to repay you for everything I owe you. Besides, you are in my will. What best that inherit you in life? Think. If you don't want it for yourself, you can always regift it, giving it to your mom... Reuse, recycle, repair..
-OK dad, I will take it, not for me, but for my mother.
-I love you and I love your mom, thanks son. Now that you accepted the house, let me tell you that I am opening a new restaurant and I want you to run it. I always wanted you and your brother to help me here in the hotel, and your own restaurant in my hotel could be the best way to accomplish both. I am seeing the architect so everything is like you want it, the kitchen, the napkins, the marble floors, etc. But please, don't burn it down, ok?
-Thanks dad, you don't know how happy I am right now.
-No more than me, son. In the meantime, you can work in the main restaurant as a guest chef, with Almudena, you do like new concepts, don't you?
-Maybe she had other plans, but I will talk to her.
-Alan, I have been wanting to ask you something that could sound weird but, could you sit on my lap?. I love you and I want to hug you and give you a kiss. Muá!
Eww!

A Que No Me Dejas #121 Thursday 3/2/17- Fab boils, Nuria spoils and Tobias gets spoiled!

Fer is saved from Clemente's abduction
Felix tells the cops he's got no info for them
Julieta tells Nuria congrats, you're a mom!

Nuria tells Julieta it's not possible that Tobias is her son, because she gave her son away but not to the servants.   Oh yeah? Well my niece said you were duped because it wasn't your baby that died, it was the servant  named Chelo, but the truth is out now and everyone at your house knows he's your son.  Nuria remembers the story that Mica told her,  she had taken her baby to the orphanage and saw another baby there by the door that had died due to the cold.  Mica brought that baby home and buried it in the garden.  Julieta says she could care less whether Tobias is Nuria's son or not, but Nuria is concerned that if it's true, Tobias will hate her for using him.    Oh puh-leeze, now you're concerned with whether he hates you?  If you could give him away then him hating you is the least he'll do.   Nuria insists that if Tobias really is her son she would have known it.   Or how about this?  It's just the best kept secret that happened right under your nose!

Univision will replace El Color de la Pasión with La Piloto in the 10pm slot, starting Tuesday, March 7th. Jardinera has said she might be interested in recapping this new series, and so I figured it would be worth reposting this synopsis to see if anyone else is interested in joining her. Please let Jane or Anita know if you’re interested in recapping this series, or drop a note in the comments.

Plot Summary:
Yolanda Cadena (Livia Brito, Triunfo de Amor, Abismo de Pasión, De Que Te Quiero, Muchacha Italiana…) is a flight attendant, who has always dreamed of being a pilot.

A Que No Me Dejas #120 3.1.17: A Room with a Freezer

Dec. Guerrero asks Gonzalo to keep Nuria on the phone a lot longer to trace her location but that won’t be necessary because Tobias and Adrian come in and reveal that Valentina may be held in Felix’s shop since he’s Nuria’s new boyfriend and he also happens to have an attack dog. Dec. Guerrero informs his units immediately.

In the living room, Micaela prays that everything will work out okay and Ileana reiterates her own faith in the same. Gonzalo comes in and informs them that they may know where Valentina is and have already informed the police. He also asks that no one answers the house phone since it’s been rerouted to his cell phone should Nuria call. They leave and everyone ask Tobias about Valentina’s current location.

In the agency, Jaime explains to Gisela that Mauricio’s campaign launch is scheduled to happen in the next few days but he didn’t want to say anything because of what has been happening with Valentina. Gisela agrees and suggests he call him tomorrow so they can ask him personally. They agree to put everything on hold until they confirm with Mauricio. There is a knock on the door and it’s the mailman who announces that a letter arrived from Fernanda for Angelica and since she isn’t in, he preferred to give it to them. They wonder if anyone has heard of Fernanda in the past few hours.

How to scam your parents into thinking you're a good person A Que no Me dejas #119

Bullets:


  • Rene begs for forgiveness and pretends to be a good boy, he makes both Gonzalo and Monica believe that he has changed his ways, and that although he hurt Valentina it was only to get back at his dad, but he has nothing against Valentina, that's why he is helping pay her ransom.
  • But we all know Rene is a rat bastard and the only reason he is helping is to get back into Gonzalo's good graces. He is looking at the two million as an investment, he figures spending that money will get his name back on the will so he has nothing to lose, he also calls one of his buddies and places a bet for $300,000.
  • Chelo tells Beto that she found Tobias and Adriana in bed together.

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

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


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