Vino el Amor y Se Fué, Postmortem, 5-11-2017
- Women are hopelessly fickle.
- Men are hopelessly fickle.
- True love is a fantasy.
- People really can change...they can get meaner and dumber.
Susanlynn: So many lessons learned via this show....all of them depressing . In most telenovelas in the past, women viewers want to be with the galan and male viewers want to be him. In this show…not so much.
Now, presenting a DisGraced Graciela with a few Dudveeds thrown in for variety. This round-up is not comprehensive or complete. Many of the contributions come from 4 of our wordsmiths, Kirby, Susanlynn, Lila and Julie. The Patio thanks them for the diversion and helping us through this show.
Urban: on Graciela: “She is a legend in her own mind. She thinks she is All That and a Bag of Chips.

Premios TVyNovelas 2017: Stevey's Follow-up on the Winners and Losers
I’m sorry that my follow-up for the big TVyNovelas awards show is so late (better late than never!, I hope!), but I did want to do a follow-up for anybody States-side who might be interested as to who was lauded as the best of their bunch this past year. Without any further ado (and recognizing my own penchant for… uh, ‘loquaciousness’ (to put it kindly, it sounds nicer than ‘eye-strain and migraine inducing…), here we go!!
We’ll start with the biggie…

Vino el Amor, #141a, Friday May 5, 2017: Sideways
A Fall from Grace
Grace Under Pressure
Lil and Grace
The Many Faces of Grace (thanks RC)
Juan says to Lilian, "your daughter Lisa didn't die in an accident like everyone thinks. Graciela killed her!" Graciela slowly turns to face her mother.
Lil asks Juan to clarify. Juan explains that he saw Grace coming back from the river after killing Lisa. Grace lamely tries to deny it, but by now she's so nervous she sounds like a chipmunk and has no credibility at all.
Juan reminds Lil of the time Grace abruptly went back to Spain, and the time she agreed to a pact for the three of them, and has always done whatever Juan told her to do, including defending Juan when David was going to fire him, and getting out of the way when Juan wanted to buy Los Olivos. She always helped Juan in exchange for his silence. Grace calls Juan a liar, but Juan continues calmly, "you never let me down until now!"

Vino el Amor #138 (Univision #127), May 2, 2017: Vino el Killa Bridezilla
In this episode, we've got blackmail, regrets, worries, dumb moves, and a whole bunch of killa bridezilla faces!
This is my last recap. I had high hopes for this show, but ultimately the writing just was not good and the main promoted couple was probably the worst couple I've ever seen on a telenovela. So it's definitely not going down for me as a favorite. On the plus side, the villains were fun and the supporting characters were fairly fleshed out. There were some good performances in the cast. I really thought Kimberly Dos Ramos stood out as Gracie - one of the more intriguing and crazy villains I've seen in one of these. She gave great screencap face, so for my last recap, I am going to salute those crazy faces one last time.
In the end, I had a good time laughing at the whole thing and I guess in that sense, I was entertained! Which is all I ask of the telenovelas I watch. Thank you to all of the fellow recappers and to all of you who posted nice words for my recaps and had a good time commenting on the show.

Vino el Amor, #136, Friday Apr 28, 2017: Cell Phone of Doom II
Grace's phone says "UNKNOWN," and she doesn't take the call. She says it's probably a vendor for the wedding and she can't deal with any more of those calls today. (Do a lot of reputable businesses like to show up as "UNKNOWN" on caller ID? I doubt it. UNKNOWN means Rachel from Card Services, or one of her friends. If it's important, they leave a message!)
David takes the liberty of picking up and is surprised to hear Juan. "Why the hell are you calling Graciela?" David asks. "Why don't you ask her?" replies Juan. But clever, vestless David says he won't take that bait a second time! Juan says he has something to work out with Grace. David tells Juan to leave her alone. "You don't know what you're doing," Juan says. David warns Juan that the police are closing in. Juan says he'll resurface when David least expects it.
Grace is grateful to David and "admits" that Juan has called her multiple times, always from a different number (how can she tell, if it's unknown... never mind...) and that's why she didn't want to pick up. He tells her that Juan's a coward and won't come here. With dewy eyes, Grace says, "for the first time in my life, I feel protected." (Maybe she should try a different deodorant.) "I will always protect you and my whole family," he promises. Grace is afraid Juan will do something to David. David says no he won't, and if he calls again, tell me. She SWEARS that she will.

Vino el Amor #133 (Univision #122), April 25, 2017: Vino el Escape but Not Yet for Viewers
In this episode, Juan is on the lam with Perla, but there's no escaping:
- David's stupidity
- Juan's stupidity
- Gracie's manipulations
- I still have one more recap to go and we've got 8 more episodes.

Vino el Amor, #131, Friday Apr 21, 2017: Between a Rock and Another Rock
Bobby is very upset about what he just witnessed. Lilian says that Marta is a savage and was screaming at her like a crazy person. Marta yells at her not to lie. She demands that Lil tell the truth. (Marta, if YOU would tell the truth once in a while, it would be better for everyone. Like that time she overheard Lilian in the coffee shop.) David sends Marta to the employee house.
Alone with David (and Bobby), a trembling Lilian repeats that Marta came in angry and crazy. Then she announces that the sheriff was killed, and starts to cry. Although her grief is real, it also appears as though she is putting on a little show for David and Bobby as she mentions again that Marta came in and attacked her. Bobby tries to comfort her. David pulls Bobby away and tells him to watch TV (which is probably being pre-empted with coverage of the sheriff's murder). David says to Lil in English, "I'll be right back."

Vino el Amor #128 (Uni # 117) - Tuesday April 18, 2017 - Vino el Plans for the Future
Miguel has got big plans for vinedo del competency. Vinedo del incompetency is falling apart and we're supposed to think that's because Luciana quit. Sure...
The real reason for vinedo del incompetency's incompetency, Duh-vid, is making another incompetent decision by planning a surprise proposal for everyone's favorite aunt Succubus.
As for the rest of the villains, Lilian is planning to destroy Gut, Gut is planning to destroy the illegal traffickers, and Perla is stewing about Juan and plans to get Carito to stew with her. Only Carito has other plans... to help Gut catch Juan and Perla.
Hang in there, we're almost at the finish line (which is episode #141/142 in Mexico and who knows with Uni since they are stretching this out to May 5). Looks like I should plan to have one more recap next week...I think we only got episode #128 in this one, based on the summary at Canal de las Estrellas. If it turns out I'm wrong, I'll edit accordingly.
