Mujeres de Negro 2.22.17 Chapter 7: Hidden Truths and Startling Revelations

Emails are in italics.
Flashbacks are in bold.

Catalina, Nicolas’ mother, comes outside of her room and hugs herself. She can feel the emptiness in her soul from her son’s untimely death. She goes into his room and looks around. There’s a photo of Nicolas propped up on a pillow on the bed. She regrets that she never came to visit Nicolas while he was married to Katia because she figured he’d come back to her someday. She begins to cry, thinking about the fact that she’ll never see him again.

Vanessa is at her PTA meeting but she can’t focus on whatever mindless task the president is babbling about. She pulls out her phone and types a message in her “Amigas” group chat. She explains that Bernal called her that morning and she needs to go to the police station after the meeting. Should she not come back, she asks that they take care of Diego and then come to her aid. She begins to type something else but stops when she hears her name being called.

Catalina is talking to her lawyer and asks that he tell her brother to visit her as soon as he gets back from his trip because she has a very delicate matter to discuss with him regarding Nicolas and his wife.

Mujeres de Negro Martes 2/21/17 Chapter 6: Outbursts

Katia put on some music and began working on her salsa moves. Little Diego asked her about this, then demonstrated his moves. He started to fall forward and she caught him. As she hugged him she thought about how she would have liked to have a child.
Where is my mama?” he asked her.
She's returning the money to the man who came looking for it.”
Oh, then the secret is over?”
Yes, the secret is over,” she said with a short laugh.
Ay, good! Because I don't like to keep secrets.”
Let's dance.”
She seemed to have no sense of foreboding.

Mujeres de Negro 2.20.17 Chapter 5: Two Deals With Two Devils

Borgetti is in his office talking on the phone. He tells the person on the other end that he knows exactly what he has to do. He hangs up, goes into the bullpen and calls Bernal and Kuri into his office. He tells them that he received a tip that the Zaldivia jewelry store is going to be robbed and he wants 24 hr surveillance. Bernal is confused as to why he wants them on this assignment because they’re already investigating the yacht explosion in Playa Coral but Borgetti makes it clear that he doesn’t want them wasting their time while they wait for Zacarias to make a mistake. Kuri immediately agrees and Borgetti likes her attitude a lot more than Bernal’s who also asks how long they will be on the jewelry store assignment. Borgetti tells them that it will be as long as is necessary and just like they were assigned to this surveillance detail, they will also be assigned to other cases in the mean time. Bernal goes to argue again but Kuri quickly thanks Borgetti and drags Bernal out of the office.

Mujeres de Negro, Jueves 2/16/17 Chapter 3: The Price of Liberty

After a search of Jackie's and Katia's homes the police found nothing in the way of technology. Jackie told Bernal that Lorenzo never brought work home with him and it appears that he had his cell phone with him on the yacht. Katia told him that Nicolás didn't like technology, so there was nothing to find, nothing missing. They may or may not have been telling the truth based on the look Vanessa gave them on the way out. A look that Kuri noticed.
As they left the station they talked about wishing it were all over. They wanted to get as far away as possible. Borgetti came out of the building, explaining to them that he had been attending to multiple cases. There was an order for seizure of the camioneta the three couples had used to go to the beach house. He wanted to make sure that the case was resolved as soon as possible. Vanessa thanked him, saying that his detectives were all respectful and amiable, perhaps her biggest lie to date.

Mujeres de Negro, Martes 2/14/17 Chapter 1: A Game of Chicken

In the hope that more of you will tune in, here is my foray into this dark world with a new voice:

Playa Coral was a beautiful, private resort for the wealthy and privileged. It had a beach of clean white sand, clear blue-green water in which to swim, boat, or fish, and apparently no undesirable human element. It also had just become a crime scene.

Telenovelas, Jan/Feb 2017: What’s Happening Now; What’s Coming Soon?


There are a few changes coming to primetime telenovelas. Here’s a rundown of what’s happening now on Telemundo, Univision and Unimás, and what’s coming soon. Feel free to share any intel in the comments. 


Despertar Contigo sprints to its finish. Its final week’s episodes will be shown in 2-hour slots, 7pm-9pm, this whole week. After that, Univision does NOT seem to be in any hurry to bring in another 8pm telenovela, and instead will run the new season of its kids’ talent show, Pequeños Gigantes (the original version of Little Bigshots shown on NBC that’s hosted by Steve Harvey).  

Vino el Amor, currently in the 9pm slot, is doing so well in Mexico, it’s been extended. Let’s hope it continues to heat up on the vineyard, and we soon learn why the Mexican audience wanted another serving of vino. So far, this wine has mainly been making us sleepy.

El Color de la Pasión is in its final weeks in the 10pm slot. After moving along at a rapid clip for 80+ episodes, it’s hit a lull before what’s sure to be an exciting final few weeks.


La Fan recently started in the 8pm slot, and so far is a very enjoyable comedic telenovela, worthy of the talents of its leading lady, Angélica Vale (La Fea Mas Bella). It’s a fun look at the lives of telenovela actors and their fans, and perfect for anyone looking for a light comedy with heart. La Fan is only two weeks in, so it won’t be hard to catch up!
