Piloto #38 4.27.17: In Which Yolanda Sets a Plan in Motion...

• Santamaria is pissed that he has a mole in his battalion and orders Caicedo to watch him closely but don’t reveal that they know about the grenades. Caicedo agrees and asks if he needs anything else. Santamaria sends him away but Yolanda reminds Santamaria that they still need supplies to treat his wound. Caicedo offers to go into town and Santamaria agrees but asks that he keep things quiet because no one in town needs to know about the attack or the intoxication. Caicedo nods and Santamaria then asks him to send over all the squad leaders. Caicedo nods again and leaves. Once alone, Yolanda attends to Santamaria’s wounds with alcohol while they wait.
• The Lucio man in Altamirano call Oscar to let him know the job was a success but Rosalba won’t shut up and keeps insisting that she’s Estela. Oscar asks the man to describe the woman and Oscar realizes the woman they have is Estela. He orders the man to lock Estela up good and watch her until he receives further instructions. The man agrees and Oscar hangs up. Zulima chides he for kidnapping the wrong woman, especially because Yolanda hates Estela, but Oscar reminds her that it’s the only leverage they have at the moment. Zulima then asks if Salvador called to inform them of the Yolanda situation but Oscar tells her they haven’t heard anything yet.

La Piloto #37 4.26.17: In Which Yolanda Confirms (Again) that Men Are Despicable...

• In Choco, Yolanda and Santamaria walk around the tents where the intoxicated are being nursed. Rubio thinks it was the fish they had at lunch but Yolanda thinks it was all the alcohol they drank yesterday. Either way, she’s not a nurse so she doesn’t know what else to give them, not that they have any medicine at the base even if she did. Santamaria insists they do something, anything, to not lose soldiers, so Yolanda suggests they bring IV bags. Rubio reveals that they ran out of IV bags and the medicine arrives tomorrow so Yolanda tells him to fill some bags up with water and salt and make makeshift IV bags. Rubio obliges.
• Lizbeth is pissed that she is being held in the Villa Antigua police station despite the fact that she collaborated with the police. Raul assumes it’s the protocol until a judge orders her release. Garrido comes and tells them that the judge ordered Lizbeth be sent to a prison in Mexico City. Raul and Lizbeth remind him that they had a verbal deal with Dave and Monica but Garrido explains that Monica has disappeared and Dave has no jurisdiction in Villa Antigua. Garrido laments her situation but there is nothing he can do so they open prison door and take her away.

Cindy will see them when she gets out of work but they shouldn’t go out or open the door.

• Lizbeth walks around the town and asks a man on the street where the police station is. He tells her that it’s a little far but, if she takes the bus, she will arrive in no time.

Santamaria orders his men to surround the property lest there be some surprises waiting for them and to let him know when they can proceed. The men oblige and Santamaria tells Caicedo, quietly, that if he sees any “snitches” (sapos) around to kill them. Caicedo nods and tells Vasquez to get a move on.

Just then, John comes with Oscar and tells the men that they will have a grand party tonight so they can capture El Bochas. Oscar wants him alive so they can take his money and supplies but if El Bochas insists on being difficult then they can get rid of him. Arley agrees and John gives him a phone to communicate directly with Capitan Arguelles, who will let them know when everything’s ready.

La Piloto #30, 4-17-2017: Slip-Ups And Loose Ends Hurt Your Friends

Vasquez enters Yolanda’s cell and wakes her up just as Sargent Recaldo (?) abusively reminds him that Yolanda is Colonel Santa Marina’s personal property.  He’s called away and El Galeno finds his cellphone on the floor under the bed for her and says make that call now before somebody else comes along and they make din-din out of the both of us!  She does but there’s no signal.

In Villa Antigua, John and Oscar are still offering Pops Arguelles, the Rent-a-Cop, an offer he cannot refuse.  Oscar tells him that they have a friend in common that they’re looking for and want to get in touch with, El Bolches, aka Eladio the Bald Bullyboy.  Pops takes the cash and says he’ll let them know.  “—Better be today.  And BTW, smile for the camera—just in case you’re thinking of opening you’re big trap…DON’T.”  Pops exits stage left as Arley enters.  Arley tells him the stewardess, aka the Gone Gals, have been permanently exiled to the depths of “el más allá [the great beyond/afterlife]” otherwise known as that great airline in the sky.

La Piloto #29, 4-14-2017: Death Defiant Damsels And Much Distress

Santa Marina gets a call from the higher-ups asking if he’s found the body of the pilot for the plane that crashed.  He lies and says no body was found.  In fact with a fall from the sky like that probably nobody could have survived.    Also, the general tells him of a narco production mill at a hacienda around 10 km from there.  Santa Marina’s got a plan and asks for the coordinates.

It is pretty grim pickin's this time.....

On her walk back to her cell, Yolanda starts to ask a favor of her young guard-escort (El Rubio) but is quickly interrupted by the medic, Vasquez (El Galeno) with a bottle of pills for her that she has to fake remembering she forgot (or something like that….)  Rubio warns Galeno that Col. S&M has claimed her as his hembra [hot chick/sexy female].   The medic, Vasquez, says to cool his jets and instructs him to walk her back; he’ll examine her later on.   When the dude leaves, Galeno warns Yoli to watch out who she talks to and asks favors of.  Rubio and Old Dude Sargent are the colonel’s toadies and run to him with all the news.  He’ll get her his cell to use for that call but keep mum.  (Oh, we get to hear Colombiano’s  slurred accents.  Charming but even worse than P.R. and Cubano to try to understand!)

La Piloto #20, 4-3-17: Zuli's Black Magic Backfires; Amanda Has A Crash-landing


**[Also, just a reminder that HULU+ no longer is carrying LP.  If your cable/satellite service doesn't carry Univision or On Demand with it added then if you are signed up with Univision/UniMas you can stream (for a charge) and you will be able to watch it there.**  --ed.]

The gone gals cannot stomach the rowdies at Olivia’s table.  Yolanda tells them to suck it up. Life could be worse and to ignore it. (I believe—no CC’s and crap audio.)

John calls and asks Yoli what was up with her madre.  She doesn’t know the location of the hideout or anything right? She won’t be talking? Right….. She’d better hope not.  One of the guerreros saw DEA Dave pay a visit.   Yoli goes to the office/back hallway?  and calls to get the 411 on Dave’s visit and to double-check that Mum kept mum.  She warns her that John has threatened they’ll beat her to a pulp [hacer picadillo=make mincemeatof her]  if she does open her trap.  When Yoli walks back into the bar there’s a skirmish with one of the drunk rowdies who’s trying to force Amanda out back.  Yoli has him thrown out but the leader of the pack calls YO! on it and she pulls a gun and aims it as his lower vitals….then at his head.  Try her!  Just try her!  “—We’ll meet again!”  “—Yeah?  You know where I am!”  The gals later gripe at Zulima for not standing up for them as head waitress/bartender.

Zulima suggests a bit later that Yoli try some alternative medicine, aka curandera, witchdoctor stuff to try to heal Rosalba, like they used to do in Zuli’s neighborhood when she was growing up.  Zuli plies her “magic” then turns it into black magic hoping to kill her through her black arts.
