Three Faces of Ana #5 - 5/27/16 From Frying Pan To Fire: Soledad’s Small World Just Got Smaller


As Santiago and Ana Lucia, aka Ana Lucky, express their shared relief in finding each other again, Soledad enters the hallway. She is stir-fried-fit-to-be-tied impactada, seeing THE MAN hugging and kissing on HER DAUGHTER.  (What a waste of a good high-tail it outta town plan, eh, Sole?) She growls at Santi to back off Ana Lucky.  Ana Lucky heads back to the room with her towels.  Remedio’s watches a bit at the nasty interplay between Sole and San, then heads off to chat up Ana Lucky.

While Soledad and Santiago butt heads over him keeping his distance from Ana Lucia, Remedios and Ana Lucia carry on like it’s old home week in San Nicolas.  They put names to faces and talk about the feelings San and Lucky share for each other and how he’s like the son she never had.  She’ll put in a good word to Mama about him for her.

Amor De Barrio Discussion Page (Episodes 39 & 40): Paloma & Daniel Get Together As Laura & Raul Drift Further Apart

Hello Everyone!

Here are the barrio happenings and goings of the last two days:

Monalisa brings a flask of alcohol to Rosa's house but she doesn't drink it. (It seems that losing her memory has been the best thing to ever happen to Rosa since she now sees people for what they truly are). She hides the flask in her trinket box though so she's not out of the woods yet.

The cop in charge of Rosa's case goes to the La Luciernaga in order to tell Edmundo that, while Dr. Serapio is dead, he was a patron at the club and maintained an affair with one of his workers and he intends to find out who it was. Edmundo tells the cop he doesn't know anything. When the cop leaves though, Edmundo tells Monalisa that he knows she was his lover and to be careful with what she does.

Rodrigo tries another strategy with Paloma: friendship and she agrees. He then tells Tico that he'd rather be in the friend zone for now than be out of her life completely if he pushes too hard romantically.

Sueño de amor, Ep. 57 (5.26.16) There are lies in your lips, in your hips, in your eyes, in your thighs, so much pain, you're so vain...

My big fat greek cancelled wedding tragedy
Pato ''se anduvo haciendo pato'' (was fooling around) so she could hear the conversation between Mapa and Ernesto. Esperanza said that in her house nobody lies, but is not true, because she is hurting Ricardo more hiding the truth from him than if she told him she has cancer. One day she was ready to be with him on sickness and health and suddenly she is stealing that from him
Ernesto's idea of rekindling their dream of love (only for show) so Ricardo can convince himself he is no longer wanted in her life (or what's left of it), doesn't fit Esperanza's plans. One moment looks like she takes a side with Ernesto to make Ricardo go away but then she changes back. Pato supports that idea because she thinks her father is a hero.
Choose wisely: Ernesto means more days in your life but Ricardo means more life in your days. What will it be? Die happy or die sad?

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 14 (May 23, 2016) Second Half

EPISODE #66 (Thu May 26)
A representative of Child Welfare Services, a uniformed officer and a notebook lady have shown up in the middle of Clarita and Cesar’s reception. The rep addresses Marissa and wants to speak to Carlos. She says he’s not at home, but she can speak for him. She leads them in the house. The rep states Carlos has been keeping an unaccompanied minor in the home. Marissa is cooperative. Yes, Carlos brought home a homeless youngster, but is planning to adopt him.

The rep says that is the problem. There are no papers on file so they have to take the boy to a childrens shelter. Marissa doesn’t think that should be necessary. He’s well taken care of in their home, but they will have the family lawyer file the right papers in the morning. Rep lady says that doesn’t conform to the law. They have to take him now.
 
Carlos and Fer are still standing together away from the crowd at the reception. He tells her she hasn’t said whether they are novios again or not. She laughs and tells him for good or bad, yes. Carlos questions the “bad” part. Fer says it’s just a saying, like for good or bad, she loves him, for good or bad she can’t be without him, for good or bad she accepts being his novia again. They are both glowing, radiant in the heat of love. Carlos leans over for a kiss. [Ahem—I thought I saw a little tongue action there!] He’s the happiest man in the world.

Amor De Barrio Discussion (Episodes 1 - 38): "Golpes Que Da La Vida"

Hello Everyone!

I recently started watching Amor de Barrio and spent all this past week catching up on past episodes to be able to watch it live, hopefully with all of you.

I was pleasantly surprised by what I saw because, while this is a "traditional" novela rosa (with plenty of cliches) they are either handled in a fresh way or are revealed so quickly it never weighs down the story. I also love that both female protagonists, Paloma and Laura, are career women who go out into the world and the galanes are to brain dead insecure men who believe hearsay.

It is also the first novela in 9 years for Roberto Hernandez Vazquez, who last produced Heridas de Amor.

This is my first summary/blog so bear with me, please. This is a summary of the first 35 episodes so here goes nothing!
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Paloma Madrigal is a muchacha de barrio that recently finished her specialty in criminal law and needs to win her first case in order to get a job at a respectable law office. The case she chooses is that of Blanca Estela Bernal whom was unjustly imprisoned by Catalina Lopezreina for killing Catalina’s husband, Saul.

Catalina blamed Blanca Estela for Saul’s murder because Blanca Estela refused to tell Catalina where Saul’s lover, Dalia and her son, Rodrigo, were hiding. Blanca Estela, pregnant with Paloma, told her husband, Gustavo, everything was true when she was condemned to life in prison. She gave Paloma to Gustavo as soon as she was born WITHOUT knowing her if she gave birth to a boy or girl. Gustavo then told their children that their mom died during Paloma’s birth.

Sueño de Amor (SdA) #55. Tuesday May 24, 2016. Esperanza Makes Lying a Family Affair, Erasmo Tells the Truth

This recap was brought to you by our recapper and Patio regular, Kinomathematika! Enjoy!

Ricardo is still trying to reach Esperanza. Pedro doesn’t answer him, either. He doesn’t know what to tell the priest. Margarita goes to him asking if the bride had second thoughts. 

Esperanza is at home and says that she loves Ricardo too much to obligate him to marry someone who will die in months. She’s going to wither and wear away. I don’t want the love of my life to be witness to my deterioration. She asked Pato and Pedro forgiveness. They told her she had nothing to ask forgiveness for. She thinks she has to sacrifice herself for Ricardo. Pato tells her that Ricardo needs her, but Esperanza says that Ricardo doesn’t need someone who’s dying (moribunda). She says she’s doing it for him to be with his children and for him to be happy. Destiny wants them to be apart. She asks them to help her hide the truth. 

Pedro tells her that even though they aren’t in agreement with her plan, they will help if it calms her. She tells him to call Ricardo to tell him to come over, that she needs to talk to him alone.

Tres Veces Ana - Episodes 3 & 4

Hello everyone! While Sneaky two shoes gets a recap ready for us, here is a discussion page on episodes 3 and 4, in which we get a first kiss (!!) and find out that Soledad is darker than we thought and is somehow involved with the whole Santiago/Marcelo story line.

We also find out that Ana Lucia is not your typical TN protagonist and will not be confused by random blabbering. When Soledad spins a made up sad story of a neighbor named Sofia, after calling Ana Lucia the name of her dead daughter, Ana Lucia says it's sad, but she doesn't know how this is related to anything!

Tres Veces Ana, 5/23/16: Premier, Episodes 1&2

Hello Patio Peeps! While the recapping team for Tres Veces Ana (Sneaky2Shoes, Ria, and Jardinera) gets themselves together and figure out their recapping schedule (team members are still needed), I'm posting this discussion page for the first episodes. These two episodes, we pretty much got everything that was in this synopsis

The Short Version:
In addition to what's already in the synopsis, we learned that: Uncle Mariano is a womanizer; Ana Lucia is in a love triangle with her two besties and doesn't know it; Ana Lucia was taught to read palms by the local nice bruja (Chana), and she's REALLY good at it; Ana Leticia was the one who caused the accident with her parents and sisters; all three sisters suffer from nightmares; it's been three years since Marcelo "died" and was reborn Santiago; Remedios' husband was with Santiago when he had his accident and he died, but not before warning Remedios that Marcelo/Santiago is in great danger and she needed to care for him; and Ramiro almost married a con woman a few years ago, found out the truth, realized his love for Ana Laura, dumped his lying fiance at the altar, and she then committed suicide (bummer).

The Long Version (debut recap by Ria):

Still, Esperanza insists Pato’s engagement is a mistake that she is not prepared to cover up (solapar), and she is not going to change her mind just because she is worried about her biopsy results.

New Uni Telenovela: Tres Veces Ana, Starts Monday, May 23rd

Recappers are needed for this telenovela which starts Monday, May 23rd in the 9 pm time slot. A few of you have now expressed interest in recapping-- let Blog Mom Jane/Melinama know and email her ASAP: caray@mappamundi.com


**News flash: as of 5/21, Uni has once again changed its mind about the fate of Yago, and it is supposedly no longer moving to the graveyard shift on UniMas. I have no idea what will happen to A Que No Me Dejas. During its first week, Tres Veces Ana will be shown in 2 hour blocks, 9pm-11pm. After that, it will be on at 9pm and Yago on at 10pm. This schedule is changing almost daily, so stay alert.


The story of "Tres Veces Ana" starts with a family road trip—the Álvarez del Castillo Rivadeneira family. Triplets Ana Laura, Ana Leticia and Ana Lucía, along with their parents, suffer a dramatic car accident, crashing by the side of a river. The event leaves both parents dead, Ana Laura losing one leg, and Ana Lucía dragged by the river’s current. Only Ana Leticia emerges unscathed. Soledad, a woman who is mourning her own daughter’s death, finds and helps Ana Lucía. Although Soledad discovers who the girl is, she takes advantage of Ana Lucía’s memory loss about the accident and her family and decides to keep her, making her believe she is her mother.

Sueno de Amor #53 Friday Sometimes it takes a village...

.... or a great team of commenters to write a recap.

After having tried yesterday afternoon and almost all day today (it's 6 pm my time), I finally give up. I cannot find a usable link to watch the episode, so I have no clue what happened. Therefor I'm not capable of writing a worthy recap, or any recap for that matter.
I'm annoyed and very sorry to let you all down, but the one link that I could open starts buffering after 17 seconds, so...
The Univision site says that Esperanza is afraid that the cancer is going to kill her... This is all I've got!

Later edit
A big thank you to Diana, Pablo and Jarifa for stepping in and writing down what you remember from watching. I'm adding your comments to the main post, this way whoever checks this down the line will have a recap (I tried to do a little bit of editing, for continuity).

El Hotel De Los Secretos (EHDLS) #80. Friday May 20, 2016. GRAN FINAL! The Gran Manicomio Closes Its Doors!

Goodbye nuthouse! We shall miss you!
At a glance

-- It's the big finale! Don't just glance! Take one last full plunge into the exciting world of El Hotel De Los Secretos!

A closer look 

The previous episode ended with all of us screaming: What the hap is f*ckening here? Who in poo-perfect hell is this Dr. Vicario and Mr. Hyde character? Well, those of you who guessed he is Clara’s father are right! Go ahead and give yourself a pat on the back! The guy is in fact Simón Canabal, Diego/Juan Camilo’s father-in-law. He had been pursuing the mustached vulture for 6 years to make him pay for the murder of his daughter. Clara was the most sacred and cherished thing in her father’s life and, after her brutal slaughter, nothing mattered to him anymore, nothing had value, not even Isabel’s life.
