La Gata #79 12/19/14 La Fractura
Discuss. The recap should be up tomorrow PM or Sunday AM.
- Laura Zapata has some great facial expressions. (And a great right AND left hook!)
- Looks like the great plan to transfer all the money to Damian is going to blow up in Fer's face. (And will he ever cut that rat's tail off?)
- They are teasing us with Centavito's story.
Hasta el Fin del Mundo on Thursday, December 19, 2014 #87 (Funny Love)
-Paco got drunk at Cuco's Place and screamed that Greta Ripoff es una traidora (!) Chava thinks that he has crossed his wires and confused Octi with Greta right when Paco says Correia and Octavio are too.
-Mati wasn't hastifully thrown out of Silvie's office this time; she just pulls him out in almost complete silence.
-The Ripoff girls, Fausto, Oliver and Patricio are inside then things get awkwardly quiet for a minute when the Mariachi music plays. Greta thinks it's Pato's idea when it wasn't; it's Chava's! Sofi goes outside to tell him to keep on stepping because it's not working while Fausto, Oliver, Dani and Alexa admire the mariachi affair. When they all go inside, Alexa asks Armie if he sings and he says no; PAUSE- In Amorcito Corazon, he sang the theme song acapella! Chava tells the mariachi to start again and keep on going!

In the all too painful present
La Malquerida #82, 12/18/14
Mexico Episode #88
Catch Diana's fabulous recap in the comments...
Weekend Photo Gallery: Family Album, Volume 1
Don't you just love it when casting directors get it right? I love how novela producers often match up actors who look like they could share DNA as family members. This can't pretend to be a whole archive, but merely a first installment.

Wednesday, December 17, 2014
La Gata #77 - Wed 12/17 - La Vibora
Dorila is hanging a painting on a freshly-painted wall in Augie and Lo's apartment. Gisela shows up and Lo tells her they've had nothing but bad luck since she showed up--Augie's in jail! He's accused of kidnapping, and Lo really doesn't know what to believe. But she believes the worst of Gisela, and she's sure this has something to do with plotting that Augie and Gisela did together.
Esme and Fer spy on Blanca's assessment. Doesn't anyone on this show have a sense of ethics or respect for other people's privacy? Blanca remembers Esme, but calls her Renata. She thought Fer had "Renata" locked up. Blanca continues her mixed-up babbling and Esme just hugs her and doesn't say anything. Not even "Trust me, mom, it's this guy who's your husband, not the wacko in the cell."

Irais asks Alexa about Matias; she's liked him since the first time she laid eyes on him and wants to know some more (Honey, Honey, how he thrills me.)

Cuco consoles Paco
Some more Pedro (Yay!)
Chava and Armie
Lupe has brought sleep furniture for Javier to his attic shack and he isn't there.He is off getting kicked out of a bar but doesn't leave because potatoes.
Marisol gabs to Lucas about the lovely, insignificant trash that is her father while he is replaying that kiss between Dani and Olly. She snaps him back to earth and mentions him inging with Daddy Worstest. He sees right through Javier.
Sofi, Alexa, Dani and Fausto.
Silvie and Pato talk about the game plan and he kisses her. She wipe it off and calls him an idiot.

Avance- Silvie's patience is hanging by a shoestring and Chava has brought a type casted STuD mariachi to the Ripoff mansion.
Mi corazon es tuyo #107 Fernando starts wooing Ana from long distance... Sarai keeps annoying everyone... Isa has a close call but does not get to see Ana at Chicago. However she begins to work a plan to hurt Ana hard.
Luz shows Fanny and Leon the fortune cookie message. ‘if someone leaves your life is sometimes so that their seat is free (for someone else)’.
Leon tells Luz Mau fell asleep waiting to see her.
Ana tells Fanny she has to go work at Chicago. Fanny says I will take care of Luz.
At Houston, Fernando talks to Natalia and Diego about Ana then. Fernando tells Diego have got no clue about Soledad Fuentes yet. And have not checked email since cell phone battery is dead. Fernando asks Natalia how she fell for Diego. For his values, for his gentleness.
Isa is heading to see Doroteo but sets her phone to check Fernando’s email through it.
YoMama nags about DoroTeo not contacting her recently.
Angel refers to Soledad as ‘Mama Sol’. He realizes whoever is looking for her on the web site might know where her daughter is so he responds to the request with Soledad’s location (El Oro) and her job (children’s choir director).
Isa gets the email and is jumping for joy.
Leon and Mau are leaving. Fanny has Luz in her arms so Leon comments they are already looking like a mom and dad. Love you. Fanny is heading to take Luz to bed when Sarai comes down the stairs with two house maids ordering around how to wash her clothes, sneezing and complaining about the dust. She can’t sleep in the girls room. Fanny says you have the living room, the couch or there is a foyer. Sarai keeps whining.
Edith has something to show Fanny… her brother… seems Edith has given Nando a makeover. He looks a bit more mature and less nurdy even if he still has glasses on. His hair is more natural and smiles widely.
At Chicago, they are introducing ‘Yolanda’ (wow! None other than YoMama!!!) DoroTeo is so shocked I am not sure when he will pick up his jaw from the floor… YoMama grabs the pole and starts swinging around it. Now it is DoroTeo who is having a nightmare… loL!
Isa calls Angel. She fakes being real happy that she found her. She asks Angel if Soledad had a daughter. Angel is suspicious so he asks what relationship does Fernando have with Soledad’s daughter.
Fernando is daydreaming about Ana while Ana, in the Chicago, is thinking she has to tell the truth to Fernando.
Angel is in disbelief. Isa tells him that Soledad’s daughter Blanca is looking for her. Angel is so elated, ‘you can’t imagine how long we have been waiting for this moment’.

La Gata #76 12/16/14 La Locura
I'm going to do this all out of order. There were really only two story arcs that saw any action (and believe me I am using the term "story arc" VERY loosely.)
Oh, and my notes were crap. La Gata must have sedative affects because I was drifting during the episode and as soon as the closing credits ran I hit the hay and slept hard until my alarm went off this morning.
Fela is found
But she is found more as an accident. It's not like anyone was ACTIVELY searching for her.
Augie brought Blanca pictures and news clippings of Esme and Blanca is not amused. She wants the real deal. She doesn't believe he is her husband. He says he is and can prove it. He takes her to the mansion that used to be Fer's, but was stolen by the MNs and is now back under the ownership of Fer. While she's there, Blanca has a hallucination of Fer. She freaks out and runs out the door and on to the terrace and starts screaming.

La Malquerida #80, 12/16/14: Slap Her Again, Cris!
Tuesday, December 16, 2014
Hasta el Fin del Mundo #85 Tuesday 12/16 : Boy loses girl again!
Mi Corazon es tuyo #106, Sarai gets a taste of the 'hell week', Lasc twins version. Fernando takes Diego to Houston. New kids Dr Angel happens to know Soledad so he responds to Fernie's ad, but Isa reads it first.
Fernando continues the listing of all the ‘characters’ in the Lasc household.
F: an adolescent that gets her braces stuck…
A: A cook who behaves like an alien… a butler who stutters… a multi-use boxer, a kitchen helper who…
F: Ana a nanny… a wonderful nanny. These weeks you have looked at me different (oh yeah?)… you have looked at me with less reserve, a bit kinder, more directly… with those spectacular green eyes (she blinks several times)… with your beautiful smile… (gets a bit close to her, or rather she gets closer to him with a big smile)
A: Thank you for the flattering compliments… and like I said, time helps to heal the wounds… (he gives her a bear hug) ah no, no, no! … don’t get so ahead of yourself (no se emocione tanto!) no, sir, it’s a long way still for the wounds to heal.
F: Yes. I’m sorry.
(he goes for the divorce papers to show her)… she says he has a toothpaste commercial smile on his face
F: I want you to see this.
A: this is… the… divorce sentence.
F: Yes. This document says Isa and I are officially divorced…
A: (jumps to hug him) Ah, blessed be God!! Blessed be God!! Don Fernando! How wonderful, sir!!
F: Finally a chapter in our lives is closed… (he gives her a bear hug, she complains she can’t breathe) … sorry. Don’t get away from me…
A: No, sir. This can’t be.
F: (they are leaning on his desk in the library/study) nothing’s easy. I know. But in this spot… in this spot began our love story… in this spot you hit my nose, remember?... and I saw your beautiful face for the first time… another day we dared to kiss… don’t get away from me anymore, Ana… let me show you how much I love you… (they are about a hair away lips to lips)
They are about to kiss… when suddenly a girl scream is heard… Both Ana and Fernando are willing to ignore it at first… we hear Ana say ‘it is no big deal, its no big deal’ and they both are about to kiss again but a second later Ana gives a huge sigh and pushes him away and starts shouting ‘what is the matter?? What??!!’ then they both run out.
The issue turned out to be Siete slurping the new girl (forgot her name) in front of Luz and the twins (from their face I can tell they woke up to her screams and are not happy campers for her waking them up like that). (where’s Alicia??) A minute later Ana, Fer, Fanny, Nando, Alicia are in the room as well and they all are in around her bed. Turns out the twins had put pieces of ham slice over Sarai’s face so that Siete would slurp her. The twins and Luz go fetch Sebas but as soon as he learns who is screaming he runs to her side. Nando and Fanny find it both annoying and funny that Sarai is so annoyed at Siete slurping her. Fernando eventually brings back the peace… they send Sarai to the bathroom to clean up.

Quiero Amarte Highlights & Discussion (Week 13-Dec 15)
Vivi Wraps it Up
Wedding called off. Amaya denounced as a home-wrecker/whore. Max denounced as a cheater and liar. Connie hooked up/shacked up/loved up with Sal. Manuel and Geno have a secret love child, who doesn't even know who his father is. Manuel determined to fire Amaya. Whor confronting Amaya about her "cheating" in her hotel room. Wow!
Lila Gives us Some Good Ones
Lips Not Hips
Mauro’s Ire Re-Fires
Emma Arrives and Dives
Consensus Reached on the Patio
Constanza is Insecure—She needs a man for validation of her worth.
Sal’s accusations that Max and Amaya are lovers are LAME. His proofs would not hold up in court.
Horacio’s treatment of Valeria is inexcusable in any culture north or south of the US-Mexico border.
Will Consta “Pull a Lu” if she finds out she’s pregnant?
Is César genuinely interested in Amaya?
Can Sal become more dangerous to Max where Consta is concerned?
What will Horacio do when he finds no one with Amaya in her hotel room? (Oh, Max, if you are downstairs, please be careful.)
