Pasión y Poder Jueves 4/28/16 Gran Final, Part 3. #137 When All Is Said and Dunne...


Too often in life the lust for power and the love of family or objects of passion are in conflict with each other. Is it better to desire one and not the other? It's been said that he who would rule the world must forswear love forever. That does not only apply to emperors and dictators or even to mythical pagan gods. It is also about mortals and sometimes with more dire consequences.

My colleagues and I sometimes run into human stories about the inhuman and the inhumane that defy understanding. This has been one of them. – D.D.

Pasión y Poder, Gran Final, Part 2: Ep. 136, Thursday, April 28, 2016 Lies, Betrayal, Anvils Fall, & A Reconciliation (Finally!)

Well, this is it. My last PyP recap. It has been fun recapping this show and discussing it with all of you. Thank you so much for everyone who stopped by and jointed us on the PyP Patio. A special thanks to my teammates: Urban, NovelaMaven, AuntyAnn, and Cynderella for all their wonderful recaps. Also, many thanks Nandicta for the wonderful recaps that you wrote for us. 

Here we go... 

At GLA, Regina visits David in his office. Regina tells him that she found out that he is going to Australia. He confirms that he is, but didn’t think she cared. She has something that she wants to tell him, but he tells her that now is not a good time. They are having problems at the office. She understands that he doesn’t want to speak with her, it’s just that, well, umm… (but she doesn’t tell him what she came to tell him, instead she turns around and rushes out of the office, as if she’s got the runs). David starts to chase after her, but the doofus heads back into his office when his cell phone rings, instead of chasing after the woman he supposedly loves, because really, it was obvious what she came to tell him, and yet he let her get away. [Whatever] 

Anyway, David doesn’t get a chance to even speak to whoever called him, because at that moment, security enters and lets him know that per Franco’s orders, he’ll have to hand over his name tag and abandon the premises. David refuses and tells the security guys that they can’t kick him out. Oh, but they can, at least that’s what Franco thinks. David tells Franco that the board meeting isn’t until the afternoon, so until then, they have no idea what will happen. But Franco is confident that the board members will back him up, after all he is the major shareholder of GLA now. David points out that they’ll have to see just how much longer Franco will be the major shareholder. Franco has heard enough and he orders security to get that imbecile out of there. Security obeys and they begin to approach David. But David asks them not to touch him (“no me toquen”) and lets them know that he knows the way out. He takes off his name tag, throws it on the desk, and leaves the office with his head held high. Franco smirks.

Part 1 of this Jumbo Gran Final is brought to you by NovelaMaven, by the letter "A" and by Argentina.

Eladio isn't even tempted

Erick, still smarting from his parents' fury upon their discovery that he was behind the baby's kidnapping, has shown up at GLA with a proposal to sell out Arturo.  Eladio sends him packing: 

No trato con asesinos, con secuestradores, ni con cobardes.
(I don't deal with killers or kidnappers – nor with cowards.)

And Erick fits the profile.  Let him to go back to his father, ask his forgiveness and beg him to take him back because Erick is one chimp who can't survive on his own.

¡Estoy harta! (Imagine how WE feel, toots!)

Marintia screams at Franco that she is sick and tired of being his Back Street Girl.  He needs to take care of the Gabriela problem now.

They cooked the books, Dad!

Luca arrives with rose bouquet #1 and while their music plays only for them and stops when they are off screen, Patricia tells Luca something she has never told him before: He is the perfect man. He is a hero for being so understanding, he is more good than the bread (as long as it is gluten free), and even when he confesses he is selfish, is only for love, because he wants her only for himself, so that's fine.

Suddenly, while they start animorphing into ducks, Luca shows his Kinky side and unveils that he likes handcuffs, BDSM and even Gorilla glue.

Pasion y Poder #134 The Cat's Out of the Bag! Finally! Wednesday 4-27-2016

Lo Nuevo

Art wants to get back together with Julia but Julia is not sure. I guess she's confused again. She says she's scared of their love.

David is back from working on the Rivera Maya project and visiting Eladio at the GL mansion. David says that the people from the Rivera Maya are going to be giving them a public recognition for their work. Eladio doesn't want to be included because it was all of David's work. He also thinks that Julia will be very proud of him. David asks his father if he's seen Julia. Eladio says he has not seen her because he is keeping his promise to not look for her (unlike some people) even though he is dying because he misses Julia like nothing else in the world.

Sueño de amor #36 Wednesday 4/27/16

So, here we are just waiting to see what happens after Tracy has told Ernesto his kids need to see him as a hero to gain their affection.

Pato talks to Kristel at the school cafeteria. Kristel tells her about what is happening at home and that her mother is being thrown out of the house. She looks upset even if she knows her mother deserves it. They get up to get some coffee and suddenly Pedro is there. Before anyone can say anything much, Ara steps up to protect her interest in Pedro in a a new "punk" costume mouthing off to Kristel about how Pedro is HER boyfriend. Kristel gets the message loud and clear and starts to laugh which just incenses Ara more. Félix comes by (announced by his whistle) and is not impressed by Ara's new look. He tells her he is writing her up and she is to report straight away to detention. Pato turns a second to check a text on her phone and someone covers her eyes. It turns out to be jerky Vicente from her weekend at Harvard. He has missed her and so just appeared in the hallway of her school. His life has no meaning without her. He has brought her a lollipop shaped like a heart. He grabs her by her arm when she tells him to get lost. He will never let her go. She warns him not to touch her again. (She should have hauled off and hit him up side the head the first time,) Creepy. He is very much a stalker.

El Hotel de los Secretos #65, 4/27/16: The GKK Revealed, But Many Mysteries Still Remain

Part 1: 

I’m starting to think the Gran Hotel guests have started coming to the hotel in hopes of witnessing scandal, and this morning they are not disappointed. The lifeless body of a guest has been found on the lawn, a maid has just freshly been murdered upstairs, and the proprietress’ daughter looks to be the culprit. As they mull this over tea and scones in the dining room, in runs the culprit herself—hands bound, and frenzied as she tries to escape the grasp of Detective Ayala. Well, breakfast just got WAY more exciting! They turn to watch the drama, absently sipping their tea and munching on their scones…

El Hotel De Los Seretos #64 -- Stop Dreamin' Y'All!

Ø  Sleeping Beauty de Sofia awakens from her nightmare to find it’s been all too real.  Beatriz’s dried blood is all over her hands.  Out, out, damned spot[s]!

Ø  Down the hall, La Inocente de Isabela awakens from her dreamless sleep to find Diego up on his feet and smiling.  He’s turned romantic and tells her it’s all because she’s come back to him.  He asks her never to leave his side –all this from a knife wound, a stab in the back.  She allows him his romantic way with her.  (Damn, is she easy!  If Julio only knew what a pillow-pushover she is for sweet words and small talk, his sex life could take a real turn.)


Ø  Speaking of Julio, he’s in Cecille’s room ready to romance la ramera ésa with her favorite morning after sweet –ahem, sweets for the tart…..  He is offering himself once again to her in hopes of forgetting Isabela. Take him home?  He’s strayed and he’s tired of following a path with no future. (Hey, aren’t we all, slugger?) They are once again in each other’s presence.  It must be for a reason! They loved each other once -- and probably still do?  (Well, it wadn’t fate, Big Boy!  She made her fate and went lookin’ for you!) She is not that easily swayed, except for the fact that she admits she’s no spring chicken and the bloom is almost off her roses at this point in life.  She is angry that he’s still stuck on some rich bitch “…who married THE OTHER GUY, FOOL!”  Well, she can’t afford to be picky at this age……

Pasión y Poder Martes 4/26/16 #133


Chapter 133: Shattered

Tragedy happens to us all. Money, beauty, power, and position may think they are immune, but they are not. They will suffer just as much and will do their best to hide it in the process. Women will usually suffer behind closed doors while men maintain as stiff an upper lip as they can, at least in public. Healing takes its own time for everyone willing to learn a valuable human lesson. – D.D.

With tears in his eyes, Arturo told Julia he could not continue their relationship.
I have to put some order into my life. I don't know where to begin,” he said.
The only thing I want to tell you is that I don't want to leave you alone,” she answered. “I want to be with you while you're going through these difficult times.”
He turned away from her as though he didn't want her to see his tears get worse. “Julia, this would just make things more complicated than they are. I don't know what to do.”
I will be at your side. I'll be there as a friend to help you, to do whatever it takes.”
What I need now is recover my relationship with my children. That is what I have to do.” He turned around to face her again. “But that does not mean that I have stopped loving you. My children need me. My love for you has to wait.”
I know,” Julia said as she nodded in agreement. She held his hand and cried.
Thank you.”

Pasion y Poder #132 20160425 Mufasa Would Never Act Like This!

I rely on CCs to recap.  They were horrible last night.  Please fill in anything that I have missed.  Thanks. 

So we're back at the casket, where observes Nina grieving for her daughter.  In Art's brain, they are sharing a moment, so he reaches out to caress her hand.  Nina let's him touch her for a few seconds, but then withdraws her hand.  She looks at him like he's got the cooties or something as she clutches a flower that she pulled from the casket. 

Anyway, Julia, the shameless hussy, walks right in (followed by her cuckhold, Eladio) and walks up to Art.  She hugs him and he thanks her for coming. Anyways, Julia the shameless, hussy turns to offer her condolences to Nina.  Instead of smackin' Julia, Nina tells Julia to hit the bricks and to take Art with her.  She blames Julia and Art for Dani's unhappiness and overdose.  Art reminds Nina that he has the right to stay because he sired Dani.  Eladio pulls Nina away.

El Hotel de los Secretos, #63, Monday 4/25/16: Opposites

Kitchen, night. Andres calls for Natalia, drunk. She answers him, but she's pissed. As Angela and the rest of the staff peep through the windows, she asks, why are you bothering me? We're just the maids and waiters down here. Go back to your fancy suite with your fancy wife. Andres falls to his knees and begs her forgiveness. She says no, forgive me for thinking a swell guy like you would be interested in a maid who only wanted to give you her love and care, sorry but you rejected me so now you can stay with her.

Angela has seen all of this and tries to comfort Andres, but he rejects her.

Felipe is scowling outside the comisario when Ayala returns from the hotel. Felipe asks to be arrested. It's where he belongs. He can't stand another minute here on the outside.

Andres has made his way to the cantina. Violeta goes to him, asks him to find Gabriel. Cecelia says this isn't a good time to bother DON Andres. Cece tells him he's brave to come here in his condition, and she likes brave men. He says he's a coward. She tells him not to be so hard on himself. He's a good man, not like his jerk friend Julio. Andres says Julio's not a coward, he's deeply in love. He fights for his great love Isabel Alarcon. Cece gets mad and flounces off to sit with her nieces and Melibea.

At the comisario, Ayala wakes Dagoberto to tell him that Felipe escaped while he was asleep. Felipe has to promise not to escape again. Ayala wants to know who helped him escape. Felipe is afraid he'll do something stupid if he's allowed to roam free. But Ayala wants Felipe's help to find Garrido. He can lead them to the real killer of Felipe's father.

Belen finds Andres nearly passed out drunk on the floor in their suite.

Sueño de Amor (SdA) #34. Monday April 25, 2016. Some Characters Need To Get Whacked And Cristián Needs to Take Off His Shirt! ¡Pero Ya!

At a glance

-- Rodrigo is preparing a sleepover with his best friend, Homero, who turned out to be La Sombra's son! Doh!
-- They haven't even kissed como Dios manda, yet Tricky Ricky is practically living at Peppy Espy's house.
-- Viviana nearly gets thrown off the balcony for suggesting to give her shares to Luca instead of selling them to Ernesto.
-- Kracy tries to mow Esperanza down with her car.
-- Iker's sister is the new nanny of Ricardo's kids.
-- Ricardo encounters a suspect who can lead him to La Sombra.

A closer look

Ernesto explains to Luca a little toxic parenting 101: “I treat your brother like crap this because I love him and I want to help him become a good man just like you”. Yeah, whatever you say, bub. If I cared, and I really don’t, I would suggest to Ernesto to dial down the tough, dial up the love and seek urgent professional help. But then again, meh! Me vale gorro. I’m only here to mock and ogle.

Pasión y Poder Capitulo #131 Friday, April 22nd 2016 While the rich folks grieve, the poor folks ride horses and play tennis.

Assmore ambushes Daniela in the bathroom and puts his cocaine infested hand over her mouth. "Surprise, surprise" he utters [and in English, so we are reminded that he's a gringo]. Daniela struggles to free herself from the slimy Assmore's grasp, but it's no use, he has the upper hand here. Assmore utters some more English words- a "relax" and a "good girl" - and he also tells her to "breath". He eventually whips out two baggies- one full of cocaine (a white powder) and the other full of pills. He tries to force the pills down her throat, but since she's able to fight him off, he instead decides that he'll put both baggies inside her purse, and it's clear that Assmore wants her mix the pills with the cocaine. He tells her to "fly", then tells her that he wanted to say his goodbyes, and promises that he won't bug her anymore. He eventually leaves the bathroom, but not before he blows a stomach turning kiss her way. Now alone, Daniela (still startled and recovering from the attack) approaches the sink and washes the cocaine (white powder- that was left on her mouth by Assmore) from her mouth. Then she takes out her cellphone, and still startled, calls David and asks her to come and get him.

Meanwhile, Erick teaches Luly about the American Manifesto ("In Good We Trust") using a dollar bill as a prop. Luly spots Assmore as he exits the bar, and she questions Erick about what Assmore is doing there. Erick pretends he doesn't have a clue. Luly gets up from her chair and wants to go and check up on Daniela. But Erick convinces her to sit back down. Erick spots Daniela as she comes from the bathroom and lets Luly know that Daniela is coming over to them.

El Hotel De Los Secretos (EHDLS) #62. Friday April 22, 2016. "It Is Not In The Stars To Hold Our Destiny But In Ourselves." Try Telling That To The Alarcóns, Shakesy!

At a glance


-- Dr. Vicario is still keeping an eye on injured Diego.
-- Andrés may have discovered that Belén is nothing but a gold-digging ho who has been using him all this time.
-- Alfredo breaks up with Sofía and starts making plans with Beatriz.
-- Jorge frees Felipe from jail. The two kiss.   
-- Ayala and Matilde discover a brand new clue.

A closer look

Teresa asks Isabel to stand by her and start acting like an Alarcón. She wants her daughter to do her part for her family: Grow up, assume her responsibilities, take care of her marriage, have kids, look out for her loved ones. These things are more important than playing detective and rummaging (hurgar) through old secrets, trying to discover Lord knows what. Teresa doesn’t like the fact that Isabel treats her like an enemy. They lock horns over Teresa’s prior knowledge of the truth about Andrés and for her attempts to impede the investigation into Rómulo’s death. In the end, Teresa tells Isabel to go ahead and look for “the truth” she is so eager to discover, but if that truth breaks her heart, she’d better not come crying to Mommy because Mommy will have no consolation for her.

Sueno de Amor, #33 Friday, 04/ 22/ 16 Questionable fathers and their offsprings: will Ernie be a better grandpa than he is a father? Will La Sombra get a Dragon gift for Father's Day?

We begin with a rehash of Ernesto and Viviana's  ugly fight - Viviana wants the divorce and half of everything, including half of the company that Ernie built with her father's money. This whole mess happens in front of their children - classic La Colina family moment!

Felix asks Margarita to meet up at night and at first she thinks it's a romantic rendez-vous, but he only wants to go ghost hunting (hey, if a girl has to settle...). Later on, they meet the certified ghost hunter (if such a thing even exists) and start roaming the school at night.

Aranza arrives for her "job" and is greeted by a lecherous looking overweight man, who looks at her with nauseating lust, approving of her big cleavage. She looks disgusted, but we don't actually find out what she's up to.

Esperanza of the Tell No Lies Family and Ric of the Incompetence in Every Job Order want to talk with PatoPedro about something very important. The teens think that since Ric's divorce is almost final, things around the house are about to change: Pato will get another new daddy and Pedro another chef to cook his vegetables (does he know that Ric only prepares pancakes?). But no, the  talk is about a big secret. He's a super secret agent, who came to Mexico to track down his arch enemy and put everyone's life in danger. Pato seems to believe this is all a joke (who can blame her?), but then they are informed about La Sombra and his activity, the way the bastard killed Ric's partner and only friend and how he has a kid in their school.
