Lo Imperdonable, #9, Thursday Crazy kids, already talking about marriage and they didn't even have "breakfast" together, yet

Filling in for Gloria today, I hope the recap makes sense, I did it on the run.

In Mina Escondida
Mariana and Pablo arrive in the village on a boat. They didn’t top by the hotel, because Pablo wanted to know the surroundings as soon as possible. Mariana thought that it would be a good idea, but now she hates the mosquitoes and the unsteady boat. She wants to get back to the fancy French hotel ASAP – Pablo can explore on his own.
He asks her to stay with him, but she won’t hear of it.

This is Mariana’s first mistake, because who does Pablo run into in the village? Ana Perla, of course! She’s with some kids in front of the church, after Sunday School (or something). The Abuelo didn’t even want to allow her to do that, worried that some of the boys in the class would be old enough to seduce her.(Oh please!)

Anyway, Pablo sees Ana Perla, Ana Perla sees Pablo and it’s love at first sight, slow motion breezy atmosphere included. She covers her head with her shawl, looking like a Virgin Mary, I presume, all innocence and candor. He’s so taken, he wants to go talk to her, but Abuelo and Manuel show up, see what is going on and interfere. Abuelo drags Ana Perla home and Manuel goes after the stranger, to warn him that he needs to leave the village immediately, because he’s not welcomed.
He’s clearly looking for a fight, but Pablo is not impressed. He explains that he is a painter, who only came to find inspiration for his work and Manuel’s threats don’t scare him one bit. Manuel loses this round, but this is only the beginning for these two.
Later, while drawing, Pablo remembers Ana Perla and her perfect name (that he overheard). In the meantime Abuelo warns Ana Perla to stay away from the new guy, because he can only mean trouble. She already looks half in love, so let’s see how that works out.

Manuel ambushes Magdalena on the street to let her know that, while drunk, Botel told him that she’s married and she abandoned her daughter and husband to be with him. So if she ever gets herself involved in his affairs again, he will tell the whole village the type of bad seed that she is.

In Mexico
First comes love, then comes instant marriage?
Veronica and Martin are at the restaurant, kissing for the first time. He asks her if she’s capable of love, because many women just pretend. Well, Vero would never do that, and he shouldn’t suppose that ALL women are the same, just because he met some bad ones. After all, some men are shameless, too, that doesn’t mean that she won’t trust him. So, how about they carry on with what they’re doing and let time decide for them?

Que Te Perdone Dios #92 – The Postman Always Sends “Anónimos” Twice, That Is, If Macaria Had to Eat the First One

Refry: Diana can breathe again, after Fausto’s attempt on her life in the hospital room. Fausto is all smiles at the foot of her bed.
Dr. Pat is sporting a nice shiner, and doesn’t want to talk to Fausto, who wants to proclaim his innocence. It doesn’t matter anyway, because no amount of beatings will keep Pat and Ren apart, they love each other.

New: Barragan is questioning Lucio in his office, making very, very sure about the date of Pablo’s death, without telling Lucio that therefore the killer could not possibly be Don Bruno. Lucio insists, even invokes his scar, and signs his declaration. Just when he thinks the coast is clear, Barragan produces one of the ubiquitous “anónimos,” the anonymous, hand-crafted letter by painstaking letter, documents that Mac has been making. This is the one about Padre Francisco, and Barragan points out that Lucio was the last one to see him alive. Lucio begins to squirm, and has the gall to ask, “Who would want to hurt him?” Barragan gets all Perry Mason, strolling away and then whirling around with ANOTHER anónimo, about Freddy! Lucio does not burst into flames as he denies any and all knowledge or involvement in any of the crimes.

Simona is visiting Ela, of Xi-ela, suffering about the Freddy letter. Ela comforts her, saying it most likely is a lie. But if it is true, says, Simona, she just wants that desgraciado in front of her to let him know how much pain he caused. Just as I’m thinking “cue Lucio,” there’s a knock at the door. But it’s Don Fausto! He is the intellectual author, after all, so I stand corrected. He walks in to the sound of panting sheep dog background music.

La Sombra del Pasado #73 5/28/15 I am weary. Let me rest.

I'm out of recapper juice, this show is killing me and I'm ready to cross that river. Hence the title...inspired by this bluegrass tune.

It's gonna be crap y'all. All over the place, condensed all to hell and missing large chunks of action and the drama. I didn't take notes and I only half watched it again for recapping purposes. It really wasn't that bad. Maybe it was just me. Just seemed dull.

I've arranged it by plot thread. Sort of.

The DNA plot Thread
Padre J demands that Sev submit to DNA testing against Cris, Aldonza AND Emanuel. Padre explains to Cande that he has a suspicion that Emanuel is the child of Roberta and Sev. Sev absolutely refuses to submit a sample. Padre is surprised. He would think Sev would want to clear things up. Sev continues his protest. Emanuel is not his son. He told Padre that that child was a still born girl. The two get into one holy (or unholy) shouting match, which brings Cris down the stairs to investigate. He's all for a test. Sev finally succeeds in getting the Padre to leave. More and more Cris is convinced his parents made up the whole sibling thing. Sev tells him to go ahead and marry Aldonza then. Cris realizes his mother never intended to help him. Cris asks Hum about how to do a DNA test. Hum takes offense. He's not going to help Cris with this. Val's happiness is at stake. (Hey, Hum...happiness is a choice.)

Que Te Perdone Dios (Wed. 5/27/15 Discussion Page

Somebody with bullet points?  Will try to put those up in this space late this evening.



Lo Imperdonable #8 – Wednesday, May 27, 2015 – “Hearts Run the Gamut Once Again – from Aggressive Dueling to First Tender Kiss”

(Some scenes are combined)

Back to Martin and Vero engaged in a fencing duel with real swords and no faceguards.  He promptly overpowers her, knocks the sword out of her hand, and holds the tip of his own sword to her neck, thinking to himself he could just end her life right there and then.  As Vero stumbles and falls, he moves closer, with the tip of his sword still hovering over her neck.  Any normal person would see the insane look in his eyes and get the hell away from him…forever.  But not Vero, that’s not her style.  If anything, her love for him just grew ten-fold, because he didn’t pull any punches and “opened her eyes” about the limits of her strength, unlike the rest of her male fencing opponents.

Magdalena, alone with her memories, mumbles to her lost daughter that she will never forgive herself for abandoning her.  NanC arrives to deliver some fruits.  Magdalena wishes she could cure her aching soul with NanC’s herbs, but knows they only cure physical maladies and that her pain will only be cured when she finds her daughter.  She wishes NanC could foresee her future, but all NanC can see is more tears in her life.

As an apology for his crazy behavior, Martin invites all the gang out for drinks that evening.  Vero readily accepts, but only if it’s to toast his victory.  Cunning Virginia plays matchmaker and tells Martin he only has to apologize to Vero, so he should just take Vero out.  Meanwhile, Emi is still fuming about Martin’s ungentlemanly behavior, so Vero tells him to just calm down and get over it.  (Translation - she is a grown woman and doesn’t need Emi-niño watching her back.)….Later, Emi gets a chance to confront Martin and warns Martin he will have to answer to him if he ever dares to hurt Vero….Martin thinks some women pretend to be weaker than they really are.  Emi has no doubt that Vero is strong, and with a firm character, but a woman nonetheless.  Martin acknowledges he got carried away but does not want to ruin his friendship with Emi.  Emi makes it clear that Martin ruined it when he came between him and Vero, the woman he loves.  Now Emi doubts they can ever be friends again, but Martin convinces him they should just follow the rules, like in fencing, and may the best man win with Vero.  (Emi, dude, don’t even waste your time.  You already lost the battle and the war.)

La Sombra del Pasado #72 Oh Sweet Baby Chihuahuas The Dumbassery Just Keeps Coming!

As always, I start with the new and do some combining and condensing.

Lo Nuevo
Emanuel goes to El Santuario to see Aldonza. Lola is there. Cue the theme music. You can tell the spark is still there even if the two of them have their heads too far up their ass to see it and quit playing mind games (thanks for the new toy, hellashelle!) Eman explains that he found out about the break up from Cris. Cris is not doing well. He went and got drunk. Lola tells Eman that Aldonza is asleep and it's probably not a good idea for Eman to see her right now. Adelina comes in with Joaquin as Eman gets ready to leave. Eman and Joaquin decide to ride home together. Joaquin and Adelina say goodbye. Sparks fly between Adelina and Joaquin as well. After Lola explains Eman was there to see Aldonza, Adelina remarks that she's sure that half the town knows the news by now. Lola is worried that Valeria is GOING to take advantage. Little does she know that the advantage has already been took.

Amores con trampa #43 and #44 5/27/15 and 5/28/15

It's time for another evening with the Carmonas. There's been trouble in paradise lately and most of us on the patio are more than a little peeved with Facundo. Jarifa will fill us in on tonight's tomfoolery. Look for her recap in the comments.



She should of let him go off the cliff Lo Imperdonable #7 05/26/15

Hello my patio peeps! This is my first recap for this show, it will be quick and dirty but I think I will be able to cover the most important parts, my DVR was a little bit wonky last night so I know I lost maybe 5-10 minutes of action, feel free to add to my recap in the comments section.

Also, before I continue, I am going to ask people to remember that this is a spoiler free zone. I saw the version of this with Kate Del Castillo, if this sticks closely to that version I know how things will turn out, if I saw LA Mentira, I'm sure others have as well, please do not ruin it for others by posting spoilers and do not discuss the previous version as it could give away key plot points, if anyone does and I see it I will delete the comment(s), please don't put any recapper in that position. And now your recap:

If she does not dig me she must be a ho:

At least Emiliano seems to think this is the case with Veronica. She is very clear with him, she has no romantic feelings towards him and she has started to feel something for Martin (who she just met! Seriously!), Emiliano makes the mistake of saying that it's true, she does go from man to man, and that earns him a slap, a wimpy slap by novela standards but still. Veronica is angry and wants to know why he would say such a thing to her.

Oh if only she knew that Virginia has been working over time to throw dirt all over her good name.

Que Te Perdone Dios Capitulo 90- Charlie Charlie Who's the Fox?

  • Fausto & Elena attack eachother with threats but don't realize that the truth about Mat reached Di's ears. Later  Faust warns Ele that if the truth came out, Mat would hate her too but Ele would gladly tell it cause he would be aware of the scum that is his "Uncle" MaD Hatter  cause Ele knows that Ger bit  the dust from his own brother . Faust cynically lies  that this is not the truth so her threats don't mean nothing to him . If she does, Mat will suffer the consequences! 

  • Max & Teodora went to buy stuff for their fancy picnic. While Max is out, Luc comes to bugger poor Teo  but to our luck Max's had the punch repellent ready while threatening Luc to never bugger our beloved ever again. Luc's fornicated mouth responds with nothing but a spit on the floor and everyone seems to be  watching, +10 for Public Manners! ( This reminds me of my high school classmates sometimes, least the cleaner's got something exciting to do with his life)

La Sombra del Pasado, Capítulo 71, Almost Everyone’s Got Their Head Up Their Ass

This recap courtesy of HellaShelle

The short summary is under the long one this time. No snark; too much ass-hattery for snark.

The Long of It: Cristobal keeps breaking our collective hearts with his tears. How is he supposed to just stop feeling what he feels for Aldonza? How’s he going to get past this? Emmanuel doesn’t know what to tell him, but he’ll stay with him while he gets drunk off his ass (supposedly so he can fit his head inside it tomorrow…)

Mari, dressed and ready for dinner, paces in the square before finally calling Eman. He tries to explain that Cris is in BAD shape and really can’t be alone, but Mari’s couldn’t give a flying fig; he’s always throwing her over for his friends! She hangs up. Because the TN gods want me to suffer, Pato just happens to be strolling by and sees Mari in tears. He stops to comfort her.

Que Te Perdone Dios #89

First, I realize I've been MIA lately. It's been due to school,  familial affairs and allergies. I apologize.

Second,  let's cut to the chase; Diana woke up and is apparently going to hold a certain thing she heard at the right moment over Fausto's head. That's quite the plot device and way to get the ball rolling faster.

Third, there's a nueva etapa. I wonder what's in store for us.

Lastly, this is for fun but is anyone going to watch La Vecina online?


Lo Imperdonable, ep. 6, Monday, 5/25/15: I'd like to buy a vowel – Is there an e? Okay, I'd like solve the puzzle...

The Party Continues

What we saw on Friday

Pablo takes his foot out of his mouth and he and Emiliano bond over their multicultural worldview. 

Virginia smirks to Mariana that she would toy with Martín only to make Emiliano jealous and to thumb her nose at Verónica.

Martín and Verónica discover another thing in common: wounded palms.  Martín thinks it is destiny that has brought them together.

And tonight, under a full Televisa moon

In the Night Kitchen

Salma is cross at finding Matilde, rather than Verónica, in the kitchen seeing after dinner.  But when Virginia joins her, she turns on the smiles. Two men, Emiliano and Martín, have shown an interest in Virginia!  Virginia, of course, only has eyes for Emiliano.  Even so, Vero, Jezebel that she is, swooped down on Martín as soon as she saw he was interested in Virginia.

La Sombra del Pasado #70 The Puppetmistress Strikes Again!

Greetings, Sombra Peeps!  First of all, a big Thank You to Eli for swapping days with me and giving us the exciting details of Friday’s exciting episode!  

Next, a lame, but true, disclaimer:  My DVR farted out on me and there were several scenes I was going to clarify.  So, here's what I remember and put together from my notes.  Feel free to correct and expand in comments!

 Let’s jump right in where we left off with Cande deploying her latest separate Cris and Aldonza weapon:  the sibling bomb!  Cris thinks it’s the most absurd thing he ever heard and doesn’t believe a word of it.  Cande tells of Roberta’s affair with Severiano who recovers enough from his initial shock to reluctantly agree.  Aldonza looks as if she is going to hurl and tearfully protests Cande’s “revelation.”  Aldonza says she doesn’t believe it but she leaves in disgust and hurt, Cris runs after her.  He begs her not to believe this idiocy!  The seeds of doubt have been planted and Aldonza cries that Cande could be right and if she is, what do they do?  Aldonza says her mother is the only one who knew for sure and they can’t ask her!  Cris says a DNA test will settle the issue immediately!  Not one to be bothered with thinking things through when a dramatic display of emotion and fleeing are an option, Aldonza chooses the latter:  she wants to be alone! 

Once home she talks to Adelina and tells her of the latest salvo from Cande.  Adelina tries to tell her it’s absolutely not true; her father is Raimundo!  Aldonza wants to know if she can prove Raimundo is her father;  Adelina says there’s nothing to prove!  Aldonza asks if it’s true that Roberta and Sev had an affair.  Adelina answers sadly, yes.  Aldonza wants to know when it started.  Adelina is not sure but she IS sure that Aldonza and Cris are NOT siblings!  Aldonza’s mind has already gone to the horrible thought that Sev could be her father and that her own father raped her!  Adelina tries to calm Aldonza and also suggests the DNA test but Aldonza laments that she knows he will never take it.

Amores con trampa #41 and #42 5/25/15 and 5/26/15


I didn't think this show could make me happier, but tonight it did!!! There's a talking donkey.

You heard me. A talking donkey.

I think my life is complete.

I will be combining and possibly condensing scenes tonight. I'm doing 4 recaps this week. Gotta pace myself ;-)

And ¡Ay ay ay! Facundo was talking a mile minute tonight!

Perpetua catches Maria talking to Santiago and demands to know what she's doing with this caballero (which would mean gentleman….is it wasn't dripping with sarcasm). She calls her daughter "María de mis pecados" which cracks me up for some reason. Perpetua tries to drag Maria out, telling her daughter that she shouldn't have anything to do with Santi (ese gavilán...hawk.) Santi tries to explain that he and Maria are just trying to fix things. Perpetua doesn't have a thing to say to him. She dumps a flower vase on him. Santi's all wet.

Felipe is an even bigger nitwit in this episode. He's annoyingly attentive to Francis. It annoys me, no her. Francis is loving every minute of it. She's finally happy. She's got Feli and that rancherita can to hang out in her mud-puddle or whatever. Her two idiot minions with no self respect notice that Carmen just came into the cafe. Carmen has a surprise for Panchota….excuse me….Francisca. It's the surveillance tape from the parking lot. It proves that Francis threw herself in front of Carmen's car. Francis thinks Carmen is just trying to steal Feli again. Carmen tells her she's happy with Diego now, besides...Feli is whipped (mandilón.) She also tells Francis she didn't have to fake a pregnancy to keep her man. Carmen leaves the CD with Francis. When Carmen leaves Feli asks about the CD. Francis claims it's a video of when she had dark hair.

Freedom, and lies! La Sombra Del Pasado #69 05/22/15

It's a long weekend, let's all get some drinks and chill! (Some scenes have been combined, or moved out of order so I can get this recap up faster)

We start off the action where we left off last night, Satan has pulled a gun on my favorite boy in all of Sanata Lucia, Renato keeps his wits about him and tells Sev that he {Sev} will make a mistake and when he does Renato will pounce. Renato leaves and Sev is left only in the company of his lawyer (Nava?) who has a look on his face that says "they don't pay me enough for this crap"-seriously, go watch the actors facial expressions, you won't regret it!

Lo Imperdonable Episode #5, Friday May 22nd 2015; We All Love Our Freedom; We All Choose Our Destiny; And We Need To Watch Out For Strangers

Let’s skip the scenes from yesterday and get right to the new stuff….

Jardin De Prado Castelo
Virginia tells Emi that Vero has done “terrible things” and Emi wants to know what the heck she’s talking about and he wants to know NOW.

Pueblo Nuevo
Pierre walks around town and looks back every once in a while to make sure he won’t be seen by anyone. He stops in front of a window.

Jardin De Cresencio
Ana Perla sits on her bed in her room and is reading a book which she quickly hides when Abuelo Cresencio comes into her room and gets on her case for being lazy and not doing anything productive. Ana Perla explains that she can’t do much being locked her room. Abuelo hands Ana Perla her embroidery and suggests she embroider. Ana Perla will do as Abuelo says.

Jardin De Prado Castelo
Emi has Virignia by the arm and Virginia in tears [crocodile tears, perhaps?] tells him to let her go. She tells him there’s no point in talking about Veronica if he’s going to act like such a nutcase [oh you haven’t seen anything yet, Virginia. Viewerville know just how crazy Sergio Sendel can be]. Emi knows that what Virginia has to say is to make Vero look bad in his eyes. He tells her that if she has something serious to say then to tell him NOW. Virginia cries and asks him how he could treat her this way during a party. He apologizes and tells her that he makes her mad when she acts this way. Virginia tells him that she doesn’t understand why she tells him things about Veronica if when she does they end up arguing. Emi wants her to promise him that she’ll try to get along with Veronica. Virginia reluctantly promises that she will. She tells him that what she wants the least is to argue with him. She tells him that they’ll enjoy the party and be okay. She goes off to greet Mariana who has arrived.

Mariana and Pablo have arrived to the party holding hands and Virginia greets them. Meanwhile, Martin stares and looks attentively at Virginia. Jorge shows up and tells Martin that he can see that Martin is impressed with his niece Virginia. Martin tells Jorge that he has two beautiful nieces. Jorge tells Martin that he loves his nieces and takes care of them. He’s like a father to them and he keeps an eye on who they mingle with. Martin understands and tells Jorge that he’ll get to know him. Jorge is glad Martin says that because he doesn’t usually let people he doesn’t know well into his home. Martin tells Jorge he’s like him and also likes to know who comes into his home and his construction company. Martin tells Jorge that his construction company isn’t a big one but it’s been successful because they offer ecological solutions now that they are needed more. Jorge is left interested and wants to know more about Martin’s construction company.

Que Te Perdone Dios #88: Dedications and Resuscitations

Constanza is thanking her lucky stars—well, actually her defunct hubby for his having had that little affair with Diego’s mama way back when cuz now she and the rest of the gals in the family are no longer alone when Diego knocks on her door.  Diego is now there as a male voice to protect them from that vicious wolf in sheep’s clothing that finagled his way in twenty some odd years ago: namely, Fausto.    He has a quick chat with her and tells Crazy Connie that altho’ he’s guilty of a mortal sin in loving Abi, he’ll take the hit in Heaven and keep his mouth shut about it here on earth  now that he’s living at the hacienda.

On the other hand, Mateo is admitting to Padre Tomas that he’s literally losing it because he senses now that his uncle is lusting after innocent and unsuspecting Abigail whose life is in danger.  Unfortunately, Padre Tom having been badly hoodwinked by the fiendish Fausto lo these many years believes that it’s Mat who’s totally obsessing over Abi and letting it cloud his judgment regarding the man Mat used to revere as his substitute pappy.  Padre Tom psshaws and prattles on that he’s smarter than all that (apparently not by much)!  But Mat, still hopeful, asks the padre to have a bit of faith in him, and not to forsake him and Abi in their time of need.  (Good luck with that.)

Back at the hacienda a bit later, Diego walks outside to the garden to find Abi sitting near the fountain.  He hopes she isn’t bitter about what happened at the church.  Naw, she can understand learning what he did had to scotch the marriage thing.    Too bad for her that he was supposed to be the guy who could make her forget about Mateo.  It’s just life crapping on her again is all.  Yup, he says.  They hug--sibling style--as Feisty surreptitiously glares down at them.

The next morning Renata stops in to see Tomas and takes the opportunity to discuss Mat’s suspicions regarding Fausto and Abi.  They agree that Mat’s probably so jealous that he’s misinterpreting things.  He suggests the best thing to allay his suspicions is to tell Mat the truth about Abi being her daughter.  Ren refuses.  Mat loves Abi so much that he wouldn’t be able to keep the truth from her.   Tomas thinks she’s got to try to make Mat understand somehow and stop thinking crazy things about the man who raised him.  Ren seems to think that now that Abi’s no longer opposed to their adopting her,  Mat will eventually realize once that’s been done that Fausto was only trying to help Ren smooth the way for Abi to get comfortable with the idea.

As for Fausto, he’s spending his morning warning Abi away from Diego, trying again to convince her that Diego simply has designs on her and Ren’s money and lands.  Abi disagrees and says she’s known him for forever and that he’s too decent to ever do anything like that.

Upstairs, Diana is having a bad day and is staying in bed.  The others head into town for the inauguration of the new Braille foundation Ren and Ximena have funded.  The ceremony takes place and Ximena is bummed to finally find out then that Tomas is actually the town’s priest.   Viewerville snoozes through this crappy sleep-fest until FINALLY Comandante Barragan ends the show when he reads the honorary plaque which dedicates the place after “Abigail’s father” –none other than Pablo Ramos.  Abi’s glance in Fausto’s direction during this announcement of Pablo Ramos as her papi seems like she thinks of it as just another one of the many lies she knows she’s been told.  (OMG, does she still think Feisty’s her papi?)

In the D.F., meanwhile, Daniela and Porfirio are enjoying each other’s company.  He decides to give Ximela all of the jewelry that used to belong to Max’s mother.  Porfi says Max lost any claim to them when he abandoned the Zarazua’s.  Ximela accepts but mum’s the word after today.

During the ceremony, Teodora and Max spend time at the lake.  He’s wasted so much of life and his has changed from one day to the next without warning.  No, he’s no longer interested in Abi.  She was a challenge he’d imposed on himself, he admits to Teo, when he still thought he owned the world and was king of the cock walk.  He declares his interest in her and she tells him that she was raped.  He guesses it was his daddy what done the deed.  She doesn’t disabuse him of the idea, but she doesn’t confirm his suspicion either.  No matter.  He knows it was even if she doesn’t want to say.  They hug.

At the hacienda, Macaria puts the anonymous note declaring Dee Dee’s twins as really Fausto’s into an envelope and places it in Mat’s (?) bedroom on the night table.

At the reception, Ren makes the announcement that Diego is actually her brother and is now being brought into the fold formally.  Feisty has no choice in saving face but to formally hug Diego as his new BIL.  They embrace and Fausto threatens to get rid of him first chance he has; Diego says not if he gets rid of Fausto first!  The Cougar Sisters chuckle at the news.  Simona and Helena discuss their admiration for Ren.  Marcelino’s wife, Veioleta, gives him grief for being an unsupportive husband.  Fausto rubs Patricio’s nose in it over Ren still staying married to him.

Back at the rancho, Mac notes that Dee Dee is feverish and cannot be woken for her daily meds.  So, she decides to get Princess Di even sicker by turning a fan on her for hours on end.  (Ya got to love it when one catty bitch turns the tables on another catty bitch!  Meeeowwww!!)

Fausto isn’t happy at all with the humiliation of the Pablo Ramos dedication trick Renata pulled on him, let alone telling the whole town about Diego’s being her illegitimate half-brother that she’s decided to bring into the fold.  He gives Ren grief over that.  He’s kept his part of the bargain in trying to preserve their marriage, he gripes to her, but after what she pulled today and the fact that they’re still not essentially “together” she’s “not doing her part.”  “Everything has its limits.”  Ren agrees (whatever that means).  He asks if Abi’s ready to be adopted yet.  Nope, but hopefully soon, Ren believes.  By the way, Ren says, have you seen the deed to La Enramada?  No.  Didn’t Ren have those in her room?  (How come not in a frikkin’ safe or something????)  Abi had asked her specifically to keep them for her, didn’t she?  Yep.

At the same time, in town, we learn that Vee is weakening.  She misses her brute of a hubby.  Simona tells her she’d better get hold of herself.  A moment later, Julianlio knocks on the door and wants to give Sim back her bratty son.  He’s tired of playing papa.

Dee Dee is up and interrupts Mat just before he has a chance to open the envelope with the anonymous note in it.  She begins chatting and then faints dead away.  Mat goes berserk and he and Feisty lay her onto his bed.  While Mat is gone getting his medical bag, Dee Dee murmurs she doesn’t want to lose Feisty’s twins and passes out.   He mumbles something to her like, “—You owe me a favor.”  Feisty notices the envelope, quickly reads and pockets it.  Mat fumbles with his stethoscope and anxiously awaits the ambulance.

Back in town, Simona gives Juli grief for coming to her after destroying her and her son’s lives the way he did.   Well, the kid’s a pain in the ass for him too so if she doesn’t want him, then he’ll send the kid away and she’ll never have to see him around there again.  She doesn’t think he’d ever come back to her.  He hates her now.  Well, replies Juli, willingly or not, the kid’s coming back to you.  That’s that and he leaves.

Across town at the hospital, Dr. Pats takes over Dee Dee’s case and refuses to let Mat assist in taking care of her.  “Save my children!!  Save them!!”  Don’t forget what happened to me, Mat!  You’re in no condition to assist!  Mat agrees to wait and begins pacing.

Thanks and have a happy holiday weekend! --ed.

Amores con Trampa #40 ... Facundo has taken over the company, even the company name and cut Santees salary to less than half... Also seems the homes Santee was trying to sell would not stand to the set of a town hall theater play, Facundo and Beto not happy about that...

Maria calls Santee and lets him know Facundo is planning some event/party at the company this afternoon. Santee thanks Maria for the heads up and says to himself 'you will see the party i will put out for you...'
Facundo meets with some of the construction workers and mentions 'that thing which i told you for this afternoon'. Esteban comes in and assures Facundo he has not spilled the beans about the afternoon party with Santee.  Facundo reminds Esteban that now HE is the biggest voice/vote in the company since Facundo called it 'MY company'. Esteban thinks to himself that Facundo is not as dumb as he thought, that it will be more complicated to get his plan executed. Esteban leaves. Facundo sends the other men away.
Beto tells Facundo that whatever food (garnachas?) he wanted is ready for the afternoon. Facundo starts practicing his 'talk' as an enterpeneur-OTE! LOL!
Isa talks with Alejandra, Felipe and Santee... Isa says you have to be 'ready' for love, and in her opinion Felipe is not ready for marriage.  Then since noone likes her opinion, she plays the target, the 'villain of the movie' in their eyes.  Isa tells Felipe that when he is ready and he plans the rest of his life with a woman, the children will come later.  Isabel says at least you did not choose the farmer.  Felipe reacts quickly saying he does not want to hear anymore about Carmen Yoya. Rocio asks why, he won't tell. Later Felipe tells Santee he will go to the company since Santee is not in the mood. Santee proud that Felipe is volunteering for this and 'is a grown man'. Hugs him.
Party is in full speed... Porfirio is there flirting with the girls who work at the company, even tries to dance with one of the girls. He uses the card that he is 'the father of the new chief of the changarro'. 
Some guy comes by and wants to yell a toast for the best boss in the world!  Facundo takes over and asks the men to loosen their ties... and that he will raise everyone's salary.  Maria comes over and Facundo dances with her.  Esteban, Yoya, Gusana and even Margarito are in attendance.  
Felipe comes in and wants to know what is going on, he is irritated. Esteban tells him.  Elevator opens again and yells asking what is going on, he did not know that there was a party of farmer town with smell of garnacha, fat and chorizo(sausage).  Facundo asks what he is doing there. Felipe says his uncle is the founder and owner of a part of this company, and does not need an invitation.  Maria is scared about Santee's reaction and claim that noone invited him.  Facundo confirms noone invited him. Porfirio wants to take over the argument with the 'bravucon y pesao' guy.  He takes his hat off and is ready to have a round of punches with Santee.  Facundo steps in the way and stops Porfirio, asks Beto to take him outside. But Porfirio stops at the girl he was dancing with ready to take it where he left it off... but Perpetua is there to stop him and save the poor girl. 
Now Santee insults Facundo about offering him tequila, saying he does not drink tequila, pulque or mezcal... he only takes whiskey, but can't consume alcohol now because he is taking anti-depressant and tranquilizer meds now because of what Facundo took him through.
Facundo announces he is the new owner of the company, and while he is on that high, he shows everyone the new name of the company ‘Grupo Carmona’. Santee has what looks like a heart attack reaction. Felipe grabs him worried. Even Facundo and Maria get worried since Santee can't breathe well.

Lo Imperdonable, #4 , Thursday Love at first sight and other thundering feelings

Refrito: Martin and Alfredo talk about Martin’s need to seek out justice and avenge Demetrio.
Every time I hear Martin compare his younger brother to a son, I get a creepy vibe. The guy was 8 years younger, it’s not like you changed his diapers, dude!

The new stuff: The Prado Castello’s talk about the indigenous jewelry line. Virginia thinks it’s a bad idea, no fancy buyer would ever want to wear something as old-fashioned and tacky. Before giving an opinion, Salma wants to know if this was her son’s idea, or Veronica’s. Jorge thinks it’s a great suggestion, the perfect way for them to honor their ancestry. Emiliniño is happy that dad likes the idea. They start discussing the designs, they want to use Maya civilization as inspiration first. Salma says that she and Virginia should leave now, since business talk doesn’t concern them.
Virginia is not happy with the outcome of the discussion and when she and her tia are alone, she starts complaining about once again Veronica getting her way. Salma is happy that Emiliniño is interested in business, but Virginia “makes her see” that this is not a good thing, since it will only mean that Veronica gets to spend more time with him, while pretending to be interested in working together. He will turn to what interests him the most – his Hispanic art, and Veronica will be left in charge of the business. Salma sees the point (of course she does) and when Virginia turns to tears, she starts consoling the poor baby. Boohoo, Emiliniño will have no time to spend with me; boohoo, whenever Veronica sees that I like something, she gets in the way.

Que Te Perdone Dios #87 – Diego Moves On Up, Everybody is Capable of Killing, and Tuteando With Abandon

What I believe is the refrito, as I could not watch the previous episode: Mateo is demanding explanations from Fausto about why he is coming out of Abi’s bedroom, and this isn’t even the first time Mat’s seen it happen. Fausto brushes him off like an annoying insect, plays the wife card to Mat and then goes to his room and shuts the door. “¡Idiota!” he exclaims. We know.

New?: Renata is going to cenar at the Enramada, having been invited by Helena. Enter Fausto, saying what a good time Abi had with him. Ren is so happy that Abi is happy. Fausto is definitely a changed man. Yep, no doubt about it. He tells Ren, “I love you so much, and I’ve waited my whole life to have you love me that way.” This is the side of Fausto that I like, when he gets his scam on and is willing to say or do whatever in his own interest (don’t worry, not a quality I would admire in real life), not the desperate old man trying to seduce a child. Another aside: It seems Fausto had successfully kept Helena and Renata separated for about 25 years. Does he know that now that they’re friends, they talk about him? I’m sure that’s exactly why he didn’t want them getting together.
