Hasta El Fin Del Mundo #50 10/24/14

Hola everyone! We had lots of wind and rain last night and my TV reception was terrible. I only got to see a few minutes of the show before we lost it completely. This will be a bare bones recap of what I was able to see. I will try to fill in later after I get a chance to go online and watch what I missed.

Manjarres offers Lucas a chance to work with him again to make lots of money. He claims it's legit, but Lucas ain't biting.

Dani cries over Lucas yet again.

Paco and Araceli fight over the lawsuit. He doesn't understand why she would sue the Ripolls without his say-so. She doesn't understand why he is defending Sofia Ripoll and attacking his own daughter. Araceli says she just talked to Sofia. No lawsuit hasn't been filed. But... he might want to give it some thought.

Mi Corazón Es Tuyo: Let The Walls Come Tumblin' Down!!


Isabela runs into Ana coming back from her chat with Johnny in el naco de “Taco Town”.   She threatens Ana that she won’t be leaving the way free with Don Fernando.  She’ll discover her weak spot and crush her.  (Warning bells.  “Danger Will Robinson!  Danger!)

On the other side of Naco de Taco Town, Reina prevents Fanny from entering Leon’s apartment complex.  She and Fanny are gonna have a little convo first.  The talk consists of complaining to Fanny she’s just slumming with Leon and then pulling a guilt trip because Daddy doesn’t pay his employees more than minimum wage, which Reina gripes, essentially gives them less than what it costs for one of her lattes—the bite …plight of the barrio.  (Take it up with your union bosses, babe.)

Bela sulks over to Enrique’s to whine about Ferd’s asking her for a divorce.  She’s soooooo filled with rage.   El Quicky de Ricky advises her to cool her jets and divorce amiably.  Bela tries getting the real reason for Reeky’s need for vengeance against Los Lascurain.  However, he manages to avoid it and changes the subject back to strategy.   Isabraya claims that before she moves out she will get Ana where it hurts her the most!

Fanny’s #2 Friend apparently is riding home via public transportation.  She talks to herself about having the hots for Nandito.  Move over Ximena.  Apparently,  she’s from a middle class barrio and tires of its poverty as well.  (Cry me a river…..)

La Gata #40- Friday 10/24 In which the Martinez Negretes crash their own “party”

(Hi, all.  Lila here subbing.  Please feel free to fill in any blanks or correct/add dialogue I missed or messed up.  My respect for all recappers goes up each time I attempt this.  What troopers you all are.  I don’t have the snark and snap of some but I hope you can figure out what happened!)

We are back at the joyless gala to announce the engagement of Pablo and Esmerlda and Pablo’s refusal to rescue Esme from the cruel barbs hurled down from the ornate wrought-iron catwalk.  The invited guests murmur in shock as Augustine addresses the press, waves in Esme’s direction and lifts his glass in a mock toast to her.   Esme stands and tells Fer it’s no use, they will never accept her.  Fer hisses to Esme that the MN’s have signed their death sentence.  Pablo finally appears with his Mom taking up the rear.

“Why?”  Pablo asks, “because my parents have shown at the last minute that they are not afraid of you?”  “No, “Fer fires back, because they’re dirty rats.”  Pablo demands that Fer respects his Parents.  Esme tries to head off an argument and in the first show of “courage” during this whole fiasco he puts his hands on his hips and challenges Esme:  “What?  You know about this humiliation he has planned for my family?”  “As aware as you were of what they did to me, kidnapping me and sending compromising photos so you would think the worst of me!”  “But I didn’t believe them.  I believe in you.”  Esme and Fer attempt to leave, Pablo asks her to stay.  The hate and rancor is stronger than the both of them she says.  Above everything else, Pablo declares, I love you.  And I love you Esme answers, but it’s clear love isn’t enough.  The reporters want to know if the engagement is still on.  Esme hesitates and Pablo asks her to answer the question before she goes.  She stares at him.  Fer throws the ball back into Pablo’s court:  do you really want to marry Esmerelda, the Mother of your children?  We await your response.  Fernando actually thanks the Lorenza for the party as he, Esme and Blanca take their leave.

Blogger/Recapper Update: A Message from Madelaine!

All, Madelaine sent this lovely message today.

Hello, Y'aLL

Yes, it is I the returning reader of Caray. Remarkably they did have UNI in the hospital so I could keep up at least.

It's funny in a way. When I first got sick they thought I had pneumonia. Then they got an x-ray at my doctor's office and sent me to the ER. That's where they found the tumor. It has not spread except for my brain, go figure, but the very front. I am not getting chemo, it is Radio Therapy. It's radiation, but chemo is a last resort. In order for me to get lung function back, they inserted a chest pipe. I called it the crack pipe, cause I swear they cracked a rib going in. But this cancer has not spread anywhere else, not my other lung, and it is shrinking from the radio therapy. No nausea, I can eat. Little unsteady on my feet of course, I've been in the hospital for almost two weeks and got out last night.  I will now be treated as an outpatient. I am just very happy to be home. They are treating the brain and lung at the same time.

As I do to you, I drove those nurses crazy with earworms and Texisms. The therapy people especially and my nurses couldn't get over the 'tude, how funny I am when I'm sick. The hostpial has a Padre, not Spanish speaking, that would come see me. We prayed together every day and he couldn't believe my faith either. Laughter is the best medicine eva! But I want to say I am remarkably blessed by Mr. Mads and my daughter Mia. And doubly blessed by this wonderful Caray Family. Thanks so very much for all the cards that were sent and the wonderful emails. Please continue to pray, as I think this was part of me getting so well so quickly. I'll be commenting again, and recapping too, I have not given up. I want to be a little steadier first. I send you very, very many wonderful hugs and thanks for all you have done.

La Gata #39- Thu 10/23 - La Farsa

Chácharas makes Rita an offer of dinner and she accepts.

Omar busts up some Virginia-Carlos smoochies so Virginia can get back to the house before she gets in trouble.  He reminds her of her mother's threat to send her to an institution.  Carlos has had enough of her mom and says if Lorenza's threatening her, then he'll have to kidnap her so Lorenza can't send her away.  You go, Carlos!

Fela seems to be doing better.  She's had a bath and is sporting identical wavy locks to Esme.  She happily announces to Esme that she's finally found her family, because not only is Fernando her husband, but…tan, tan, taaaaaaaaan…Esme is her daughter.   Esme gives her the patented "Ay, Fela!" look and says that's not possible because her mother is dead, but she's sure Fernando and Fela will find their daughter again.  Esme leaves.  Fernando comes in to wish his Blanca a good night and marvel over having found her.  His kiss wakes her up and she freaks out a little and thinks he's a dream.  She seems to recognize him this time as "her" Fernando and tells him she thought she'd never see him again and she loves him.  Blanca cries that she never wants to leave him again, but she feels like she's slowly disappearing.  Fernando tells her they need to present themselves to Esme as her parents and then they'll be able to be a family.

Hasta el Fin del Mundo #49 20141023 I was Wrong, the Galan is not Gay!

Ripoll-Patrick tells Silvana that he got in a fight because he was defending Renzi’s girlfriend from some lecherous dude.  He removes the recipe book from his safe and forwards pictures of the pages to Renzi.  Renzi will send them out to a newspaper, along with the story of chocolate espionage. 

Later during lunch, Silvana wants to toast to the destruction of Ripoll.  Patrick says that the newspaper article is just the beginning.  He still intends to marry Sophia.  He asks Silvana what Sophia sees in Chava.  Sophia tells Patrick that looks aren’t everything.  You don’t have to be built like Adonis to win a woman’s heart, but it doesn’t hurt.  She suggests that Patrick get over his jealousy start acting like Chava.  He’s smart, funny and edgy.  Opposites attract. She begs him not to tell Sophie that she told him that Sophie went to the Village Idiots dance.

Mi corazon es tuyo, #69, Thursday, 10/23/14 Love the one you’re with…

At the mansion
Fernando is telling Alicia about his impending divorce. She is furious, she thinks that everyone has turned against poor Isa because of Sebastian and Ana’s (!!!) lies. Yes, she thinks that Isa is the only one who’s telling the truth and everyone else is not; Seb is just an annoying brother and Ana is upset because Isa got to marry Fernando instead of her.
There is no reasoning with our once blushing quinceanera. She runs into Fanny while storming up the stairs and Fanny points out what a good thing the divorce is. So Alicia sends her big sister to Hell, which wins her a big reprimand from Fernando, but one that she cares very little about.

In Chicago (the real one, not the Doroteo infested one)
Jenny and Nico are still enjoying their honeymoon, but they take a break to video call Ana. The nanny is scared of this type of new technology (she does have a smartphone, though, so maybe the show should cut it out with this type of humor when there is clearly no need for it). Diego helps Ana with the video call and the two couples chats vividly. Ana reminds Nico to take all his “vitamins” (heh) and the call ends with kisses and hugs all around.  

Diego and Ana are at the photo shoot, that I think is supposed to be a surprise for her. She starts taking pictures and I have to say it: in my opinion Silvia Navarro has never looked better, even if she’s lost a lot of weight because of all the dancing.

La Malquerida #44, 10/23/14: Luisa Nearly Gets Kissed; Acacia Goes All the Way; Perla Gets Whupped

Mexico Episode #49

-Danilo says the woman who came to the wedding with him isn’t his wife, just a girlfriend. After Ale ran away and he couldn’t find her, he tried to get on with his life and started to date this woman. But she always knew he couldn’t love her like Ale. And when he found Ale again, he ended things with that woman. In any case, Este and Cris say Ale is coming home with them.
-Luisa chooses to speak with Manuel and sends Arturo to wait for her in the kitchen. She gets all flirty with Manuel, and is flattered that he seems to be jealous of Art. Her smile soon turns into a frown, when Manuel states what he wants—info on Acacia and Uli. Luisa realizes what a dope she was and tells him off. She goes to the kitchen and finds that Art has taken off. She calls and asks him to come back, but Art is no fool. He’ll see her later at their appointed time to cook for their event. He knows how not to mix business and personal life. Luisa is clearly disappointed. Rosa wonders if she got gussied up for Art. Rosa thinks he’s a nice boy, but she wants Luisa to be careful in any case. Later, at Uli’s house, Luisa arrives with a peace offering of a gelatin cake, but Art remains all business. He gives her a cool apron with their company logo, but he says it’s just their uniform. However, once they start bumping into each other as they cook in Uli’s small living/dining room, he drops the attitude and the anger, and gets back to his old self. He puts on music, takes Luisa into his arms, brushes a stray hair away, looks deep into Luisa’s eyes, and…her phone rings! It’s Rosa checking up on her. That woman has some sort of spidey sense!

Knife Fight, I'm One Sick Son of a Bitch!

Lupe is baking and Sofi is afraid. Lupe asks what is Sofi there for if Chava isn't around? She says Araceli is against her and claiming ALL the Ripoll recipes are Paco's!

Paco and Araceli are arguing about their current situation; Los Ripoll y las recetas!

Pato and Chava have at it; they pound and smack and beat and whack and much more. Pato says Sofi deserves a man, not a clown and that pushes Chava's berserk button! They tussle over Pato's phone which he is supposed to use to call Renzi but never does since it falls in a bucket of water. Meanwhile Renzi is pacing up and down wondering why Pato hasn't called him yet.

Pato's overpowered Chava and is climbing up to finish him off.

Sofi gets a feeling in her chest and Lupe notices. Sofi moves on and says Paco's a good guy; Lupe stops her right there. Sofia le cae bien pero Paco is her friend and he's a very trusted person.

Pato is about to drop the load of heavy crap on Chava BUT Chava catches his second wind and chases Pato down. Renzi is now frustrated and eventually dismissed everyone.

At some point, Pato fractures his hand and he asks Chava for help. He helps Pato and that sends them tumbling down into a pile of cardboard. That's a wrap I guess.

Sofi and Alexa have a warm sisters moment where they get along and hug and tell themselves they love each other finally!

Chava is home and he lies to Lupe that he just fell and din't get in a fight.

Another somewhat warm moment with Renzi patching up Pato while trash talking Chava (you know, it's nice that he's doing that but it sucks that they're who they are.)

IrkMe is crawling all over Armie and he denies her of SnuSnu since he has to get Alexa to the airport early in the morning.

The next day Chava apologizes to Armie about not being able to tell him who he traded punched with. He says he doesn't want anyone to know he got in a fight; in comes Sofi who I love in this scene being genuinely concerned saying she was informed he has injuries and wants to know the truth ONLY!

Alexa is primping her hair when Fausto says to her that LOVE is followed through with and she knows.

Chava pretty much lies to Sofi who asks if he needs to go to the hospital. His mom patched him up and he just has sniffles. Some gab later and Sofi says she has dreamed of Chava -cue the theme music-

Renzi is in the house and IrkMe lays it down; Armie doesn't want her working with Renzi.

Armie loads Alexa's luggage into the trunk and they thank each other; Alexa thanks him for taking care of her and Armie thanks her for letting her be around him for many hours a day. They're so warm and in love THEN COMES DooDooHead Alan to kill the moment.
Fausto is asking Sofi about Chava and she is pretty much giving us all the qualities Pato doesn't have.
More Renzi and IrkMe FF>>FF>>FF (I swear if these two end up in a love scene together-gagmewithaspoon-)
Greta asks about Daniela and she says she will miss breaking bread with Alexa. Her absence will hurt Fausto and Fausto won't miss Alan; Sofia seconds that! She claims Alan was all over her at some point LOL.
Dani futilely calls Lucas and surprise surprise he doesn't answer.
Greta and Sofi talk about Chava; Chava is having Lupe's home remedy and it is foolproof! Araceli clad in a chartreuse dress comes out and claims Paco has kicked her out of the house! I assume she is staying at Lupe/Chava/Marisol's (Sometimes I forget Matias is there. Who will bunk with the Chava Clan next?) Lupe plans on literally sweetening Paco with her cinnamon rolls.


La Gata #38- Wed 10/22 - La Reunión

Pablo's enjoying baby time and vowing to re-marry their mom ASAP so they can all be together again and Pablo can watch the babies grow up.  Cue Aerosmith's "Don't Want To Miss A Thing."

Gata, inexplicably, is hanging out with Principe at her former Pablo-rendezvous point.  Obligatory shot of the "Pablo + Gata" carving.  Principe whines.  Gata remembers some pre/teen flirting.  Gata calls this their little "loma" (hill).  Pablo shows up to join her in the tree.  Smoochies ensue.

Lorenza tells Augie they have to accept Gata.  Augie is still resistant.  And he doesn't think Fernando will drop the charges.  Um…didn't Fernando say that wasn't part of the deal?  Lorenza tells him it's this or jail, so Augie says they'll do it.  Frankly, if I were Gata, I'd be ok with the groveling, but I would NOT want to live with them.

Gata thinks this is all a dream and Pablo suggests she not wake up.  He says he'll never let anyone interfere with their lives again.  You mean like last time, when you promised you'd always love her?  Just saying. Gata feels like she's gotten the old Pablo back.

Mi corazon es tuyo #68 22 Oct 2014. Fernando does use THE D word with Isa... Isa is desperate. Diego keeps trying to conquer Ana's heart.


Diego explains to Ana about the Dragon fruit being from Laos and Vietnam. Ana thinks Diego is so knowledgeable…

Isa and Fernando arguing and Isa yells at Luz…

Diego tells Ana he loves her and tries to start a waca waca session but Ana maneuvers her way out from under him… says ‘no, Diego… I can’t… Forgive me, its just I can’t.’ She just can’t.

Lo Nuevo:

Fernando leaves the room with Luz after giving Isa several devil stares.

At the truth or dare game, Gustavo passes at ‘the worst ridicule of his life’ and he tells the story of one time he was locked out of his house with just a towel on, had to go to his dad’s office and lost the towel

Laura decides she can’t do truth so she gets a paper out of the bowl for dare… She reads (???) you have to kiss in the mouth the person to your right… (wanna bet that this was NOT what was written on the paper?) Laura kisses Nando, Ximena not happy at all and has a tantrum. Fanny has to hold her back. Ximena is certain (and I am too) that Laura was not kidding with the ‘game kiss’. How come no one thought of reading the piece of paper to see if Laura was lying? Laura mocks Ximena about not liking her boyfriend and that Ximena forgot to take her meds… Ximena warns Laura not to seize her… Laura tells them that Ximena is insecure and a bit nutty… Gustavo is so immature… he just has fun with the whole scene. Fanny asks Laura if she likes Nando.

Isa is left alone in her room yelling ‘darn inopportune escuincla!!’

Nando takes Ximena outside, she warns him that Laura is after his petacas. Ximena says I better go home. Nando will go with her.

Diego tells Ana don’t want to pressure you. When my dad got married and I asked you to marry me you had a crisis. We are grown ups… I desire you. Ana says making love is rete-important to her. He will wait for her as long as it takes.

Fernando returns to the bedroom and the argument continues, but Isa keeps playing victim.

Fernando’s arguments:

We are going from bad to worse…

How dare you yell at a little girl? Let me remind you, she didn’t even talk before. Are you crazy?

You are harming my kids too much and I won’t tolerate that!

What happened just now was the drop that overflowed the glass.

I think its best for us to divorce.

Sebastian’s incident was part of a series of events that concluded with this ‘exabrupto!’ (mocking her)

Besides Sebastian’s incident, which is unforgiveable, there are insulting a kid, the notebooks of the twins, the pearl necklace…

Beyond that, knowing it is not easy to interact with my kids, which in fact are 7, something you knew from the beginning, we are not a couple! We are not a true marriage! And no matter how much effort I put into it, I will never be able to make you happy as I promised you.

I am such an idiot i could not foresee that you are no mother material, let alone mother of 7+ material, or that my kids Ana would pay the consequences for it as well.

I did not know you were writing a book about how to be a 'B _ _ TCH to your step children' and were practicing the hints on my kids.

Noone told me that I needed to make all the wrong decisions before i chose the right one for my happiness... because... its all about ME, you know?  and I got soooooo ZONKED!!

Isa’s claims:

I got it (editor: yeah, like you just drank an instant remedy on how to be a parent and a wife). Please forgive me.

You were telling me horrible things, I was very nervous and my hormones got startled.

Anyone can have an ‘exabrupto!’ (tantrum)..

Its not easy for me to deal with ‘7 creatures’.

I already told you a thousand times that I had nothing to do with Ana’s mom’s issue!

I had nothing to do with the (pearl necklace incident). My mom saw it in a telenovela!

Amazon sent me the wrong book I ordered 'how to become a nice mother of many overnight' and i got 'how to get out of a marriage with kids in 10 days' instead!

Manuela screwed up my cake and i got sick all over the twins homework notebooks!

The car rolled over the kids laptop and the kids blamed me for it.

La Malquerida #43, 10/22/14: Dan’s Got Some ‘Splainin’ to Do

Mexico Episode #48

Danilo Vargas is messing with my sleep, people! His evil is not the best thing to watch before bed. Again, high level bullets.

-Dan throws Alejandra off him and hard to the floor, as she tries to keep him from suffocating her worthless alcoholic mom. She jumps on him again, but it looks like years of drinking didn’t leave much fight or life in her mother, and she dies quickly. Dan tries to say some b.s. about how he did this for Ale. She screams that she never would want anyone to be murdered, and then wails over her lifeless egg donor.
-German and Acacia arrive just then and Ale immediately runs into German’s arms, and then Acacia’s arms. She’s almost catatonic, so Dan spins his lies about what happened. He says that Ale found out her mom was sick and that’s why she left. She sent word to him, via some people they know in common, and he rushed there. They arrived just in time for Ale’s mom to die. Dan nervously asks how they found Ale. German responds, where there's love, there's a way.  German wonders why Ale didn’t call him—this is why he wanted her to get a cell phone. Dan puts on a teary-eyed, sad act, which is just disgusting to behold. Ale shoots daggers at Dan with her eyes. Dan shoots back threats with his eyes. German looks confused and suspicious. Acacia is just worried about Ale. Dan offers to call up a doctor buddy of his to do the death certificate and offers to take care of the funeral. Ale sarcastically asks if he’ll take care of her mom’s burial like he did her brother’s. German insists on paying for the costs and hands Ale his art work check. Ale refuses to take his hard-earned money that he needs. Dan shoves the check back at German, and pulls Ale to his side, staking his claim on his property. Acacia calms the men down before their conflict escalates, and reminds them that they are there for Ale. Dan pulls Ale outside and reminds her that after Olga, and her mom Hortensia, German is next on the hit list, so she better keep her mouth shut!

Hasta el Fin del Mundo #47 20141021 A Dog Fight, A Cat Fight, A Cock Fight and a Lover's Quarrel

Trash Can de Oscar the Grouch (aka Franciso “Paco” Fernandez) Araceli asks Paco why he never sued Octavio Ripoll and Martin Coria for stealing the recipes of his delectable delicacies.  “Why would I want to do that?” asks Paco.  Araceli tells her father that his friends’ betrayal turned him into a bitter man.  She wants to know what he was like before.  Was he always like this?  Paco orders her not to make any trouble for Ripoll.  Do not sue them.
A while later, over lunch, Lupe apologizes for getting Paco in trouble with Araceli.  Paco tells Lupe that he told Araceli the truth about the recipes.  Lupe agrees with Araceli that Paco should sue the Ripoll factory.  We You will be rich!  Paco says that the past is bitter; he doesn’t want to think about the it.  He was sad for the last 30 years and now he wants to be happy for the rest of his life.  Lupe tells him that should find a woman to be happy with.  He grabs her hand and tells her that chatting with her makes him happy. 
Later, at the store, Paco thinks about how he has wasted 30 years pining for a woman that has never thought about him.  He now wants to spend the rest of his life (in poverty, because he refuses to sue) being happy with the woman who has stuck by him.  He thinks of Lupe, who is certainly thinking of the potential bazillions he will win from the lawsuit.

La Malquerida #42, 10/21/14: Hector Sees What Viewerville Sees; Dan Continues to Top His Own Evil

Mexican Episode #47

Just high level bullet points tonight. I have an early day tomorrow.

-Esteban continues his jealousy hissy fit and runs off to the swimming hole, where he imagines that he gives into his temptation and kisses Acacia. Fantasy Acacia pulls away and says this can’t be, because he is her mother’s husband.
-Meanwhile, real Acacia calls Cris to inform her that she’s coming back to the ranch to pack and then head to Ale’s birth town with German and Ulises, by way of San Jacinto. She greets Juan Carlos when she gets back and tells him they’ll be staying with Elena in San Jacinto and that she’ll send love from him to her grandma. They miss each other.
-German is a better father figure to Manuel and is more firm with him than Norberto is. He tells his little bro to suck it up. Acacia doesn’t love him. That’s no excuse to give up on his life and his therapy. He orders Manuel to come to San Jacinto with him to begin his therapy. Manuel refuses, pouts, and shouts about how they ALL betrayed him by hiding the truth about Acacia and Uli. Norbie gloats about Manuel not wanting to see German and lets German know he’s not welcome there. Later Norbie and Julie fight about:  1) Norbie supporting Manuel in not going to his therapy; and 2) Norbie not allowing German to visit them at the ranch. Norbie just thinks she wants to get away from having to sleep with him by going to San Jacinto. Juliana taunts him with denying him sex, and asks him if he’s going to force her. He responds by slapping her hard across the face and walking off.

Mi corazon es tuyo #67 Tues 10/21 Fernando finally faces Isa with some backbone and gets to witness her effect on his kids first hand... Ana defends Fanny to Reeky and later Reeky pulls out a cannon and a 'loved ones' threat on Leon

Fernando asks Ana why she referred to Jenny as 'hermana.' Fernando asks Ana if she will tell the truth once and for all… sike!!! Just kiddin’!! advice to have a ‘sister’ so fast? Chemistry! Ana changes the subject quick and walks away.

Music continues… where did all these stranger guests come from? They were not at the wedding!

Edna looking for Johnny… he is with Dana (the other girl from the Chicago) out in another patio. Johnny kisses Dana (or rather she kisses him) and Edna is outraged…

Leon, Reina and Margarita busy keeping up with the food serving and cleanup.

Wait… Reeky dancing with Betty??

Ana and Diego to to dance. Fernando shows miffed face. Isa looks away rolling her eyes. He remembers his dancing scene with Ana in library at the house. Alicia comes to ask Isa to go to restroom with her. Luz goes to dance with Diego and Ana. YoMama comes to check how Fernando is going. He is not in the mood… she wants to know how the marriage is going… YOU ask me about my marriage? … YoMama brings up the issue about Ana’s mom. She seems to want to explain she talked to Ana… Fernando really not in the mood to talk about it. Fernando gathers as much respect as he can and says ‘but… you are no longer welcome in my house.’ (yeah, he said it flat out like that and in one breath!! And Yomama is having a hard time catching her breath.. she is totally frozen. Fernando had planned to talk to her later but… ‘I want you out of my house, Yolanda’. Yolanda is in disbelief… you can’t send me away like an old rag… Fernando reminds her he had warned her, remember when they accused Ana of the burglary?? YoMama insists 'you can't do this to me, I am your MIL!' but Fernando continues ‘if there is something that makes me sick is injustice. And watching someone abuse their ‘power’ on folks who are in weaker positions. I don’t want you in my house any longer. Enjoy the party. Excuse me.’ Fernando is done talking. Stands up and leaves. YoMama tells herself ‘ay, hijita, you and your ideas’. Fernando watches Ana and Diego interact with Luz and is a bit sad. Diego comes over and notices Fernando is a bit out of it. Are you sure? Can I do something for you? Fernando tells him he just kicked YoMama out of the house. Its just he is not (in the mood) He is ok…

Isa and Alicia in restroom. Alicia tells her Sebas made up everything so her dad would be mad at her. Isa thanks her. Ana walks in, seems not happy that Ali is talking to Isa. Isa asks Ali if she will let her alone with Ana to talk to her. Ana is not looking forward to this. Ali leaves. Isa calls Ana ‘vulgar’. Ana asks from toilet ‘now it turns out you are not, right?’

Reeky sits Betty down in the middle of a song and goes right to grab Fanny. Need to talk to you. Fanny also wants to talk to him so she goes to dance with him. Leon watches them. Reina tries to poke some jealousy in Leon. But he is not having it.

Diego has pulled Fernando outside. Fernando wants to talk to Diego about his life. Diego understands that sometimes what we say and what we feel are not the same. I know perfectly what it feels like to loose a love. (or lose in love) Don’t want to talk about Ana, or we will end up badly.

Isa grabs Ana roughly questioning if she went tattle-telling to Fernando… Ana is rough back in her tone. Isa threatens to Ana not to talk to her as ‘equals’. Ana does her arm movement ‘cancelo! Cancelo! We are CERTAINLY not equal. What you want to know is if I went to Don Fer with the gossip about the intrigue you and your mom built against me. I did not tell him! Look, I did not tell him. But he found out. And the trick backfired on you and your mother. I was not guilty of anything… just was a bit too trusting. But what happened later…(Isa gets rough with her again but Ana stops her) I have not yet told him that you left me and Jenn out in the road’ Isa rebutes by mocking Ana’s desire to find her mother and the fact of Ana looking like a clown in the road asking for a ride… Isa totally enjoys watching Ana suffer for sure. Ana is about to rip Isa’s wrist apart… Ana again says if it were not for your pregnancy… Ana warns them not to play with the most sacred one has which is your mother… Ana leaves, Isa again is left grinding through her teeth nagging that Ana broke her hand (if she had, you would be screaming in pain now, B!!)…

Fanny tells Reeky that Leon is more a man than him. Reeky says that was not a threat. Reeky claims that he told Leon what he told her, that Leon is inferior. Fanny tries to end the convo and leave, But as Reeky tries to grab her, Ana comes to the rescue. (was funny how Ana pointed her finger at him and he looked at Ana’s face and then down at the hand… like ‘who the heck are you?’) ‘I know people like you who think they are all that, but you don’t know what I am capable of if you try to harm my nina, EMBEZZLE!!!’ Ana calls Reeky a big bad wolf. Ana threatens him to tell Fernando if he tries to get close to Fanny (the little ridinghood). And he will kick him out of the corporate office. (loved that scene of Ana showing face for Fanny). (loved how Reeky stared at Ana, I just hope he won’t target Ana as his new dart board picture) Got that!... yeah, you got it. (as Ana leaves with Fanny, Reeky says ‘you don’t know who you are messing up with, Ana Leal…) (I am afraid the secret of Ana’s second job is coming up sooner rather than later).

La Gata #37 10/21/14 La Molestia

Full disclosure: I'm in one of my cranky, kvetchy moods and this episode didn't help. What's with all the talking? And where the hell is Fela? Ugh.

The least important stuff
  • Rita's suitor is still around, but Rita is getting discharged so...whatever.
  • The Meatball is still around. I think he's teaming up with Garabato, but he brought his gang to the pizzaria and took advantage of Meatball. Yelling. Threats...whatever. (Meh. This should probably be filled under "Important"...whatever)
  • Esme and Jarocha have a long conversation.
  • Esme and El Silencioso have a long conversation. The MNs should be kissing the ground you walk on. Blah blah blah.
Probably not super important, but it didn't annoy me too much
  • Augie had another attack, but he's not dead. Dorila made him chamomile tea that tasted like arsenic. This was right after he said he wanted to hire a hit man and be done with FDLSC already. Dorila has a quick line about always staying quiet. Will this turn out to be important?
  • Virginia visits Esme. She keeps calling her "cuñada." Kind of sweet.
  • A beggar woman asks Pablo for some money. He obliges. She gives him an origami flower. He invites her to lunch and tells her his troubles. The actress is really familiar to me and it's driving me crazy trying to figure out where I've seen her before.
  • Damian seems to have become El Silencio's goon/muscle. He beats that bald guy to a pulp and Pablo and Esme are there to hear the confession: Augie was the "brains" behind Operation Selfie.
Important...I guess.
  • Mariano tells Lowrenza that Pablo knows everything about Operation Selfie. Lowrenza doesn't deny it. Mariano has some lines.
  • El Silencioso and the lawyer Osorio have a long conversation. The MNs will NOT mess with his hija. Give them the offer they can't refuse-Publicly admit their guilt, accept Esme in their home and announce her engagement to Pablo. (PS: Augie can refuse it, but...Lowrenza? Maybe not)
  • The Martinez Negretes seem to have forgotten the most important plot point: The household does indeed revolve around Pablo. That's why we're all in this mess! But tonight everyone is screaming and bleating about it always being Pablo, Pablo, Pablo! Augie says he's always been a headache.
  • Pablo confronts Augie and they have lines. Lowrenza breaks up the fight and Augie leaves. Parallel scenes with Augie drinking and renouncing his son while Lowrenza asks Pablo if it will help if she and Augie accept Esme and his engagement to her. Well, of course it will help. Lowrenza says they'll do it....but asks Pablo not to say anything just yet. She asks him to wait until the day of the gathering to actually propose. I guess he agrees? Anyhoo...he heads to Esme's house and FINALLY gets to meet the babies!!
Looks like the writers will be working my nerves again tomorrow.

Stranger Danger! La Gata #36 Monday 10/20/14

Hello my patio peeps! Here goes the recap:

I'm going and you can't stop me:
 Miss Kitty and Silencioso have a show down, he forbids her to go see Pablo but she won't listen and takes off with Jarocha and the babies.
At the hospital Pablo meets with Monica, who is there because Mariano called her, why did Mariano call her? Because he hopes that Monica can work her charm on Pablo and keep him away from Esmeralda so that he (Mariano) can get a chance to woo her. Good luck with that little buddy. The long and short of their meeting comes down to this: Monica loves Pablo, but she knows he loves Kitty and what do these women see in Pablo? He's not smart, he's not charming, ok so he might be pretty but as my beloved Judge Judy would say "beauty fades, dumb is forever!."

Miss Kitty arrives at the hospital and finds Mariano there, he tells her Monica came to the hospital-spent the night there with Pablo and that the two left together, he also tells her that Pablo does not want to see the children until he is in a better financial position. Kitty is hurt and leaves with Jarocha, Mariano is left alone with his thoughts and the voices in his head tell him that he and his father are the same-his father stole 20 years of a mans life and he is trying to steal the love of a woman from his brother, hey at least he is self-aware!

Mi Corazón es Tuyo Lunes 10/20/14 #66

Capitulo 66: Who Let the Dogs Out?

Lascuráin Mansion: Fernando took Isabully aside and told her that there will be grave consequences for what she and her mother did to Ana. He didn't give her a chance to say anything in the way of denial and made it clear that he will not have his father's wedding day spoiled. He then called the chauffeur to get started. He assured his father that all was well before he went into the car. Zerobela then pretended to faint and told her mother that Fernando threatened her. Alicia was incredulous.

TELEMUNDO Y MÁS: Reina de Corazones -- week of October 20, 2014

We learned at the end of Friday's episode that Reina is in "últimas semanas." Since Telemundo has only just started filming the replacement, a remake of Pasión de Gavilanes, we all hope that they will air the full 140 capitulos (60 more) of our favorite novela.

Thanks to Mauricio for changing his day to recap and to Stevie for doing my Wednesday slot while NovelaMaven and I are unavailable this week. I am in New Orleans but without any access to TV.




TELEMUNDO Y MÁS: THE FRONT PAGE, week of October 20, 2014 -- Los Miserables, Señora Acero, etc.

Thanks to  the folks who are stepping up and recapping Los Mis and Señora Acero, NovelaMaven, deb and J desde NYC. It looks like they could use some help so if anyone is watching those novelas and wants to try recapping, here is an opportunity.




Blogger/Recapper Update: Madelaine's Health


I have been in touch with many of you over the last week as I have gotten updates from Blogger Madelaine’s family about her health. Many of you have asked if we shouldn’t share the news more widely on the blog, and so I am using this space to do so now. Most of you know Madelaine as one of our most energetic bloggers, recapping multiple telenovelas at a time, multiple times a week. He recaps and comments are folksy and warm. Her ever-ready, perfectly matched song/music selections are infectious. Over the last few weeks she has been unusually absent from the blog, battling what she thought was a tough flu bug.

Mads and her family now know that her fight is much greater than that. Sadly, she is battling stage four lung cancer. I know most have you have already been sending her prayers and well-wishes. I ask that you redouble those, as Mads goes through radiation and chemo over the next few weeks. If you would like to send her a letter/card/note directly, please e-mail me by clicking on my avatar.

I hope you are all well out there.

Hasta El Fin Del Mundo #45 10/17/14 Let's All Celebrate this (un)Happy Occasion!

Sofia descends the stairs in a dress I have no explanation for. Why is she wearing black at her own engagement party? This might be something Silvana would do out of grief over 'losing' Pato, but no, she's looking hot in bronze. Note to Sofia, if you dress in funeral colors at your own engagement party, maybe your subconscious is desperately trying to tell you something. Pato joins Sofia and everyone applauds as they come down the stairs.
Besides being ugly, half of Sofia's dress is missing.
