Gran Estreno de Amores con trampa- lunes el 30 de marzo 8/7C


Disclaimer: In all likelihood there will be no recaps for this TN, but I really hated the thought of Caray not doing anything for the first week of a prime-time novela. Below is the sinopsis and a few character descriptions. If you would like to have at least a discussion post for the first week, please leave a comment. If the response is underwhelming, then we can forgo even a discussion.

Personal note: Ernesto Laguardia has stated in an interview that he is happy to be a part of a production that carries a message of family unity and responsible pet adoption/ownership. On the ACT site of Televisa viewers are encouraged to share pictures of their pets. I just think this is cool.


Producer: Emilio Larrosa (I admit I no nothing about him except that he produced Hasta que el dinero nos separe.)

Source material: Somos los carmona (Produced by Televisión Nacional de Chile)

Sinopsis
Translated (sometimes loosely) from the Televisa website.
The Carmona family lives a peaceful and simple life in the country in a small pueblo located in the interior of the Mexican Republic. The family owns important mineral mines in the region. They are forced to move to the city after the government buys their extensive property for a huge sum.

La Sombra del Pasado #29 3-27-15 Three Caballeros and a Padre


Let’s get right to it!  Adelina is at Humberto’s office to complete the paperwork and get the keys for the Alcocer house.  Adelina has asked Humberto a direct question:  “Was that baby (girl) born dead?  Yes or no?”  Humberto answers with a question, “Why are you asking?  You were there.”  Adelina gets tough for a minute, refreshing his memory that he and Sev took the baby from the room, and then she pleads.  Humberto looks at her evenly and swears by his daughter that “. . . this baby (girl) does not exist.”  Adelina leaves, defeated and a lie lives all over Humberto’s face.

Operation happy family begins at the Mendoza breakfast table.  Sev and Cande are able to fit in a mini inquisition re Cris's whereabouts the preceding night (when he was playing a moonlight Romeo outside of Aldonza’s window); a vote of support for his version of the Lardo beat down story and an assurance that he is free to leave Las Animas as soon as he weds, all before the cornflakes lose their crunch.  Cris wonders why the sudden change of heart but he appreciates it and reassures Sev he will continue to work in the hacienda until he marries.  Cris should’ve hung around one more minute and heard the ominous music and Sev’s vow to make sure he stays.

Adelina gives Aldonza the lease and keys and quick as a flash she’s off to find someone to help her get the house in order, waving aside Adelina and Padre J’s attempts to find out where she’s going.  Padre is very interested in the question Adelina put to Humberto.  She tells him that he “swore by his daughter that the baby (girl) was born dead.”  Padre doesn’t believe that for a minute:  It doesn’t make sense to him that Sev would be intent on carrying away a dead baby and he certainly doesn’t believe it was because he wanted to give it a proper Christian burial.  Padre wants to look more into the background of this whole event and to do that he says he needs Adelina’s authorization.  Ah, Padre J. sure knows how to keep Adelina in the game, doesn’t he?

Mi Corazon es tuyo, #176, Thursday GRAN FINAL – Part 1: Par de clonas



Hello, everybody! This is my last recap for Mi Corazon es tuyo and it so happens to be the second to last episode, so I hope I do it justice.
Since I watched on line like I usually do, I’m not entirely sure where the episode ended on your TV’s since mine had about 130 minutes. I checked on Univision and the original Mexican recap and I tried to stop my writing accordingly, but I’m not sure if I succeeded. So, if you read about something that you haven’t seen, yet, or I missed part of the episode’s ending, I’m sorry.

Recapping this show has been fun, especially at first when the stories where fresh and more exciting. Of course we had to go through the same extensions that Televisa usually employs to prolong the successful shows, but all in all, I think this was a good story, with some decent acting and a few genuinely funny moments.
Thank you all for your appreciation and praise of my recaps. Especially since I haven't been my best self lately, because, SPOILET ALERT, Ana and Silvia Navarro are not the only ones who got pregnant during the shooting of this show – I did, too. So I might take a break from watching silly dramas for a while…
Yeah, right! Who am I kidding? When is the Ivan Sanchez one starting?

Without further ado ….

Ana and Fernando are kissing in their bedroom, when the kids show up, screaming and jumping on the bed. Apparently they still don’t know if they are having a brother or a sister, Ana and Fer are keeping it a secret. They are almost careful not to suffocate Ana, but they do start to draw on her huge belly, with Fernando looking on, lovingly.
At night Fernando is woken up by Ana’s scream. He thinks that she’s going into labor, but what she's having are cravings: for lemons, lemonade, strawberries or chocolate. She’s not very sure, but Fer is trying to be patient (it’s obvious she’s been doing this all through the pregnancy – poor guy). Then Ana decides that she doesn’t want to eat, after all, she just wants him to stand by her side. She gets nervous, afraid that he won’t be with her when she has to give birth. He promises that he will never leave her side, which automatically means that he will most definitely have to.

La Sombra del Pasado #28 3/26/15

Be prepared for questionable quality and possible absence of details. I'm basically fast forwarding and writing down what I remember them saying...which might not be a lot. Oh, and I combined a lot of scenes. Always feel free to fill in.

Right to the new
Severiano(Sev) does an admirable job not letting on that he knows Simoneta Saavedra. According to her, she's here for business. Sev invites her to his study. When there, she tells him that she missed him soooo much! She swears she didn't let Candela(Cande) know anything! She's staying at a local hotel. She'll go back there and wait for him. (Seriously, what is it about Sev that has women clinging to him and going crazy?) As Simoneta leaves, Dominga sees her and you can tell there is recognition.

Pru and Humberto(Hum) argue about Aldonza. He's flattered that she would think a girl like Aldonza would go for him. Pru informs him that she put Aldonza in her place anyway and the news about The Stoning comes out. Pru also accuses him of keeping El Satunario at Aldonza's request and says that also explains why he was so willing to get a divorce. Hum gets angry and decides he's not going to share his bedroom with Pru anymore. He goes to stay with Emmanuel.

Que te Perdone Dios Capitulo 47 -Nobody can handle the truth! -Full Recap

 Here is the recap on the courtesy of TN4Ever:



 Refrito: Mac is spying on Renata and Comandante Barragan’s conversation in the parlor. When he mentions Pablo, she’s like, “I thought I told you to leave that alone?” He wants to know if she’s Abi’s mom. At the hospital, we re-learn that Diana is pregnant.

New: Dr. Pat tells Di that he has advised Mat to wait to get divorced, but Diana says no, bring it on. His punishment for divorcing me will be to lose his child. Dr. Pat has to swear not to say anything. If there are Mexican HIPAA laws, then it’d be illegal to. But neither priests nor police officers are very discreet, so we’ll see about the good doctor. After he leaves, Diana stops crying and gets her game face back on.

Abi is loitering outside the Hacienda and Diego shows up. There’s a creepy scene of uncle telling niece how much he loves her, to give him a chance, he loves enough for both of them. In other words Diego’s usual spiel.

Que Te Perdone Dios #46: Di's Elastic Tie That Binds



  • Fausto's got more lives than Morris the Cat!  He survived practiccally without a scratch,  Com. Barragan smells something rotten.  He does some checking with Meliton who refuses to tell him anything useful.  He tries questioning Feisty, but meets another brick wall.

  • Mateo tells Diana she's ready to go home--alone.   (Hey, Mia's house is empty I hear.)  No way he's letting her guilt him over the D.I.V.O.R.C.E. (Too bad about the scars those scissors made.  Get a shrink.)  He's off to see his lawyer ASAP.
  • Macaria visits her later in the day and offers to become her ally in hanging onto Mat cuz Fausto's HER man.
  • Padre T tries convincing Renata that Fausto is a changed man.  Why, he swore before Christ's image on the altar!!  Ren says she's the one who's lived with the guy for 30 years, with all due respect, Padre.  He was blowing smoke.  They agree to disagree and she'll due some penance in the meantime for disagreeing with Dios's faithful messenger.
  • Max learns why Toni told such a tall tale about him and Motor being each other's love toy and tells him to clear things up with his mom cuz he doesn't want that garbage being spread about him, especially in front of Dr. Mat and double especially with Abigail!  He's got a thing for her!

Mi corazon es tuyo #175 25 Mar 2015... The church wedding! with more guests than expected... and several amusing extras

Refritos: Ana and Soledad get in the limo… Ana whispers to Sole ‘don’t you notice something wrong with the driver?’ Next we see the driver communicate with Arquimides ‘its all ready here. Ana is inside.’ The limo leaves the house.


Jennifer rants at Johnny for borrowing money from some questionable guy to offer it to David for Aura. Johnny says don’t worry about that, only think you will have Aura in your arms today. ‘you haven’t learned anything’.

Diego, Nico and Fernando start to worry about Ana’s tardiness.

Hissa meets up with Arq and the limo at the top of a hillside. Hissa is celebrating/laughing ‘I want Ana to realize I AM the one that won in the end!’

Lo Nuevo:

Suddenly some heavy woman comes out of the limo. Hissa’s face is priceless… (wrong bride!!!)

Meanwhile at church Ana gets out of the limo. Fernando gets excited at seeing her from far away. He turns around and says ‘I can’t see her!’ and asks Nico how she looks. Bellisima!!

Hissa rants at Arq and Jairo (the driver) that they brought a different Ana to them. The wrong Ana asks them to bring her to the church, her bf is waiting for her. Hissa starts arguing with her. Ana 2 says ‘I prefer to be fat than to be crazy like you!!’

Hissa, Jairo and Arq get in the limo and leave the Ana 2 bride alone in the hillside!

At the church, Luz and Mau are carrying the train… Nico comments to Ana ‘you don’t know how long I have been waiting for this moment. ‘ ‘no more than I!’ is her answer.

A good opera singer is singing Ave Maria while Fernando is sighing as Ana and Nico approach. Ana blows kisses to the kids, the girlfriends, etc everyone she knows…

As Ana and Nico arrive to the altar, Ana makes a pose for Fernando with her hand on her hip. Fernando continues swooning at her. Nico hands Ana over to Fernando ‘Fernando, I give you Ana, whom I love as a daughter.’ Ana and Soledad have their moment too and Soledad gives her her blessing… Fernando watches very happily.

As Ana approaches Fernando, she whispers that he is ‘guapo’. He is speechless.

As the priest starts with the signal of the cross… Hissa is ready outside with a bazooka on her shoulder, talks to camera.

Fernando and Ana say their vows ‘… I, XXX, promise to love you, YYY, and be faithful to you until death do us part’.

Fernando and Ana exchange rings… Hissa is ready to shoot…

Time for the arras (symbolic coins).

Hissa shoots the bazooka but it malfunctions. She then starts ranting insults for Arq and points the bazooka up.

Hissa tries the trigger again and this time the bazooka shoots straight up. The explosion sound makes Johnny and Diego run out to the door as Arq is dragging Hissa away. Johnny asks Diego if he knows what that was. Diego says he has been in war zone… he knows that was the sound of a bazooka shooting. They even smell powder.

As the priest continues asking Ana and Fernando if they came willingly, etc… we see a barefoot woman in aura approaching them from behind. Both Ana and Fernando sense a presence so they turn around. It is Fanny Sr. she nods ‘yes’ to both Fernando and Ana… Fernando and Ana then ask each other if they felt/saw what they did. They agree that it felt like Fanny Sr came to give them her approval/blessing, it did not feel threatening at all. Fernando agrees and caresses her face.

La Sombra del Pasado #27 3/25/15 Things Get a Little Rocky

Kat asked me to fill in for her tonight so she could catch her breath.

I will jump right in at the new stuff.

Cristobal (Cris) isn't convinced that Aldonza is the home-wrecker Valeria (Val) is making her out to be. And Val is going to have to forgive him, but he didn't come to fight about Aldonza and her questionable morals. He excuses himself and leaves.

Humberto (Hum) makes the rounds at local banks. At Banco de Progreso he is informed that his loan application was turned down because of his credit history. Humberto is confused. He doesn't owe anything that he isn't paying in due time and proper form (en tiempo y forma. With mad props to Wordreference forums.) He asks if Severiano (Sev) had anything to do with the rejection and the banker looks like he just pooped his pants a little. Poopy Banker doesn't know what Hum is talking about.

3/24 Tuesday Hasta el Fin del Mundo #153 There is a disturbance in the Force; Dr. Phil makes a guest appearance.

3/24 Tuesday Hasta el Fin del Mundo #153  There is a disturbance in the Force; Dr. Phil makes a guest appearance. 

Depa de Armando
Papito is mucho depressed after seeing the news article about Alexa and Paolo.  Nandito very astutely guesses Paolo may be to blame for the breakup between Armie and Alexa.  Armie admits they've decided to take a break from the relationship.  Dr. Phil, in the role of Nandito, asks why.  Armie explains Alexa will be very busy with her movie and he's got a lot of work at the fabrica.  He admits he misses her, a little. 

Casa de Ripoll
Dr. Phil, now playing the roll of Dani, attempts to get at the root of Lucas' anger with his mother.  He doesn't understand why Rosa would have the nerve to go to his home to announce she's leaving when he had made it very clear he never wanted to see her again.  Dr. Dani asks some probing questions, “Is that what you really want – for her to leave again?  Have you considered your mother may have returned for a reason?  If she were as bad as you say she is, why would she have bothered to come back at all?”  She then points out Rosa's positive actions.  For example, she was very supportive of WBB and making all those posters.  Lucas agrees that was nice and also remembers the cover charge was Rosa's bright idea.  But are these small gestures supposed to make up for all the pain she caused him?  Dr. Dani continues to dispense her good counsel and tells him Rosa's return proves she's sorry and that she loves him.  Lucas shouldn't pass up the opportunity to get to know Rosa.  He should keep his heart open, or in Dr. Dani's words, his antenna, or he could end up regretting it the rest of his life.

Mi corazon es tuyo #174 a lot of silly filler stuff... with a few cute moments... Hissabella is desperate, playing all her cards at once, and it seems she has 'the force' working AGAINST her

Refritos: among tears, Jennifer has to hand over Aura to David. She begs him to take care of her. He says will do. Ana and Johnny hug Jennifer for support.


Lo Nuevo:

At office, Fernando is with Torres. He gets a phone call and can’t hide his excitement. He has a date for the church wedding. 28 Feb. (boy! They are rushing in MCET time!! I recall they reconciled Feb 11th!!)

Jennifer tells Ana she will try to focus on work to not think too much about what is happening with Aura.

At David’s place, Mónica, David’s wife, asks him why he brought her. He wants Jennifer and Johnny to suffer a while. He says the more they suffer the more they will pay to get Aura back.

Isabela drives to the location of ‘Las Merceditas’ and intends to run Ana over with a car to make her loose her baby. But the car starts to malfunction as Isabela tries to slam on the gas to run Ana over.

Fernando calls Ana on the cell phone to tell her they have a date for the church wedding AND he has the priest too (Padre Samuel). He even gets excited and talks like Ana ‘Si! Si! Si!’ Ana is excited.

Jumping beside the disabled car, Isa is having a tantrum because this attempt to hurt Ana ALSO failed. Some guy comes by and tells her she didn’t have antifreeze so the car motor stalled. Isa continues her tantrum swearing she hates the Lascurains and las nacas.

Back at the Manse, Fernando and Ana announce to the family, staff, Siete and dates of the older kids that there will be a church wedding soon. Fernando is using a bit strange language so it gets a bit silly. The kids get confused and suggest the new wedding is for Soledad and Nico. Soledad says ‘that doesn’t sound too bad’ (which gets a ‘say what?’ look and then a giggle from Fernando and Ana).(hey, with all the weird stuff we've seen in this novela, that is actually not THAT out of the blue... at least Nico won't have to worry about her surviving him by THAT much or wanting him to get BUSY with her )  Fernando clears up ‘no, its OUR church wedding’.

TELEMUNDO Y MÁS: TIERRA DE REYES, DUEÑOS DEL PARAÍSO, etc. week of March 23, 2015

This page is for all things Telemundo except for comments on Los Miserables, which can be directed here.  As you may know, Los Mis ends Tuesday, March 24.

Dueños del Paraíso is in its final weeks.  Given the time the writers have devoted to developing several characters, each with a sustantial plot line unlikely to be resolved in a few weeks, it seems likely that we are seeing the first of two or more seasons of this Super Series.  I wonder what kind of a role Kate will have in future stories.  Not a central one, I bet.  There’s got to be a reason they named it Dueños and not La Reina, La Dueña or La Señora del Paraíso.


On Wednesday, March 25, La Biblia will be shown in the 8pm/7C slot.  Then Avenida Brasil will get that timeslot, beginning Monday, April 6.

Enjoy your week!

Quiero Amarte (Week 27-Mar 23) They Shouldn't Have Said "IT" Out Loud

Ay, Mauro, you shouldn't have said "IT" out loud. Not that Lucrecia hasn't thought of it before, but honey-bear, you just gave her a free pass when you told her she'd have to kill you first, before you would let Lucio stay in the house alone with her (watch out for those slippery stairs).

Ay, Amaya, you shouldn't have said "IT" out loud. Not that you didn't feel it and Max didn't suspect it anyway, but the hospital hallway just wasn't the right place to tell him you still loved him (can't get him alone?--try the garden again).

Ay, Lucrecia, you shouldn't have said "IT" out loud. Not that it will stop Mauro or Eloisa from acting on their feelings, but telling Eloisa Mauro will never be hers since he belongs to you, divorce or not, will only embolden Eloisa (go girl).

Ay, Ivan, you shouldn't have said "IT" out loud. Not that Cecy doesn't know you have a beautiful, dark-haired wife you are crazy in love with, but asking her (well, ok, in all innocence), if Cecy knows a dark-haired beauty that is occupying your dreams was not a savvy thing to do (nor safe).

Ay, Doctor Guapo, you shouldn't have said "IT" out loud. Not that the Patio Peeps didn't see the resemblance immediately, but when you said you were from Guatemala, but born right in Chiapas, Mauro, Amaya and Lucrecia are in for a big surprise (we hope).

Ay, Cesar, you shouldn't have said "IT" out loud. Not that you aren't a prick, but do you really think your secretary is going to believe you can't stand having trash in your office is the reason she is to dispose of the bag, toute de suite. (she smells a dead rat).

Jarifa's Better Version of Events/Thank you so much for stepping up again!


Chava looks aggravated.

Irma tells bored channel surfing pissy faced Aracely that she just needs nine or ten cats to live with to make her an official old maid. Aracely tells Irma that Irma is just like her but Irma says not for long since she is well on her way getting her "loves" ( Armando and Nandito back". She tells Araceli that Armando received her well and even invited her for breakfast. Aracely does not believe they will get back as a family but Irma says they will be because she is being so understanding and good (even offering to make them more comfy) that Armando will fall for her. Aracely cannot believe Irma has lost her love for "material" things. Of course she hasn't it is just part of her "game". When she gets Armando back, Aracely will see that she was right. Aracely reminds her of her legal situation and Armando's request for custody. Irma just calls her bitter and says she at least she is doing something to get her man back while Aracely is just bawling in the corners while Chava is having a good old time at the beach with that Ripoll blondie.Read more »

 

Mi Corazon Es Tuyo, #172 Fernando is THE MAN!!!!

Wow, this show felt like it was about 3 hours long, there was a lot of detail to put in since it was such an action packed episode. I think this is my last recap for this TN, I can't say it's been my favorite show, but not my worst either.

We start with Jen and Jonny talking to a woman at the orphanage, or wherever Aura is, and she tells them that the biological father of Aura is claiming his daughter. Then he comes into the room and Jen gives him the stink eye.

León is preparing the dinner table for his night with Fanny. The doorbell rings and he’s expecting it to be Fanny, except we are gifted with the unfortunate return of Laura. She starts stripping her clothes off.

Ana and Alicia come home and Ana confronts Alicia about what she did. Ana is not happy about what she did, but we all know from past experience that all Alicia has to do is whine and all will be forgiven. She storms up to her room.

At the hospital, Diego sits Fernando down in the waiting room. He has something he needs to tell Fer. Diego tells him that Diego Nicolas is not his son. He saw the paternity test that Isabela had done. Enrique Basurto is the baby daddy.  And then Yomama confirmed it, Enrique and Isa were lovers before Fernando came into the picture. He shows him the analysis. Needless to say, Fer is in shock. He tells Diego to stay at the hospital, he’s got to talk with Isabela. Diego calls Ana to come to the hospital, he needs to go after Fernando. He won’t tell her why.

La Sombra del Pasado #24 3-20-15 A Sanctuary without Peace



Rewind
Humberto says nobody in the house values what he does!  Val says her father is trying to swindle the father of the man she’s going to marry!  She thinks this can affect her marriage to Cristobal!

In a tearful embrace, Adelina asks Aldonza to pardon her if she ever in the future fails her or is not forthright with her.

Moving Forward
Padre Jeronimo and Lulu are in the Church office looking for  baptismal records of children born the year his brother died, 1988.  He pours through the first of three large 3 ring binders she locates.

Lola seeks advice from  Doña Irma on how to snag that special man.  Irma shares how she took the initiative, set the bait and reeled in Uriel.  Lola is surprised that Irma is so liberal in her thinking.  Well, appearances can be deceiving or, as the saying goes:  caras vemos, corazones no sabemos;   we see faces, but we don’t know the hearts.

Ay, pobrecito de Cris, he can’t have one private moment or thought.  Cande has invaded his room to ask him if he still feels anything for Aldonza and he blows a gasket!  He’s tired of everybody asking him the same thing over and over!  She asks if he’s not interested in her, why is he so pissed?  Candela should go back and read the first sentence in this paragraph!  Cande advises that his reaction is abnormal, as is his doubt in his Father’s Word, which Cris denies.  Cande looks down her nose and asks him to think about what he’s saying and he’ll realize SHE is right.  Cris seems to subtly gasp for the air Candela has sucked out of the room.  She leaves and he takes the escapulario from his neck, looks at it and then flings it on the floor.  He gets up, throws his hands in the air and wonders aloud what the heck is happening to him now.
