Amores con trampa 4/20-4/21 La Fiesta and its aftermath

It was a full episode tonight with a decidedly dramatic turn toward the end, but Margarito!

Right to the new
Santiago(Santi) goes to Estefany's house. At least he thinks it's her house. That's where he dropped her off last time. The voice at the other end of the speaker box informs him that there is no Estefany there. Try the house next door. Santi is confused.

In the office, Santi whines to Esteban. He went to Estefany's "house"...or at least he thought it was her house-that's where he dropped her off last time. Esteban tries to tell him "I told you so." Not only did they tell Santi that Estefany didn't live there, they ran him off. HIM! Santi wonders why Estefany should do such a thing. He thought they had a good relationship. Esteban questions "relationship" so Santi concedes that "connection" might be the better word. Esteban tells him to talk to Estefany, but Santi tells him she won't answer her cell (the cell SANTI pays for.) Santi panics. What if she went to Africa? Esteban is sure Santi will find out and come running to tell him. Santi starts to complain that all women are the same-dishonest liars. Luckily, his Puchis is different! Esteban looks at him funny and Santi backtracks and explains that if he's playing this game with Estefany it's because Puchis practically pushed him to to it.

Quiero Amarte (Week 31-Apr 20) Highlights & Discussion

THE CHIAPAS WEEKLY NEWS - Online Edition for Select Subscribers
BREAKING NEWS
Don Mauro Montesinos, head of the Montesinos family, chairman and majority shareholder of the Nescafé-Mexico empire and owner of vast coffee lands in Chiapas, has been missing and presumed dead for many weeks. Most of his family members cannot believe he is dead. In breaking news it seems a Dr. Marco Antonio Linares, newly arrived head of the Chiapas medical clinic, has been instrumental in identifying him as being alive (and to his own surprise, identifying him also as his father). Don Mauro is in serious but not critical condition upon being rescued. He is alive thanks to two individuals who prefer to remain anonymous. Family members had gathered in the Montesinos Mansion in Mexico City, expecting a family reunion that never took place. They have yet to be informed of Mauro’s recovery and status. This story has not been officially confirmed, but sources close to the scene have indicated it is credible. More news on the family’s reaction as it comes in to News Central.

OTHER NEWS OF INTEREST
Iván Fonseca, recently married to the lovely Mariana Valdez and having of late recovered his lost memory, has volunteered to be a super hero and single-handedly deal fatal blows (figuratively speaking, of course) to the evil, scheming Ulises Arteaga and the dangerously obsessed and mentally unbalanced Cecilia Cortez (aka Cecy), owner of the WUN finca, La Tormenta. Ulises, recent heir to the finca El Deseo has been identified as engaging in some dirty coffee business dealings. He has now abandoned the property to evade capture after kidnapping and sequestering Mariana twice, nearly whisking her out of the country using fake passports (which he had to have replaced). He is on the run, thought to be heading for Cecy’s finca. Cecy was given parole for her participation in deceiving Iván into believing he had no wife, no family and preventing him from being reunited with his loved ones. She pretended to be crazy (which of course she really is) to “pass” her psychiatric exam and is now back home at her finca, plotting new ways to separate Mariana from Iván, the object of her obsession. More news on Iván’s heroics as it comes in to News Central.

La Sombra del Pasado #44, 4-17-15 True Confessions of Boinkers, Lovers and Other Strangers



Overlap:   Lola with Dominga and Mel in the kitchen declaring her new attitude toward E-man while admitting she can't help being attracted to the handsome devil!

We return to the morning after and the afterglow is long gone for the Mendozas.  Among other things Cande screeches to Severiano is that nothing happened last night!  Sev begs, even falls to his knees claiming he loves her but Cande is seized by pain and humiliation.  She wails that Sev should get out, slams and locks her bedroom door, then slumps to her chair and weeps.

Dominga enters Cande’s room to bring tea and hastens to leave.  Cande asks her not to stay, she needs to talk.  I get the feeling that Cande as a wounded little girl and Dominga as the comforter is a role that has played out throughout their lives.  Cande cries that Sev has a lover and of her pain after having surrendered to him last night.  Doming gently checks her reality:  it’s logical and Cande knows this woman isn’t his first.   Dominga wants to know what is really hurting Cande:  she’s maintained for years that Sev didn’t matter to her.  Cande looks within to a private screening of her past.  She thought she would be happy when first married him but she was wrong.  The bastard never valued her as she deserved and she will never forgive him for that!  Dominga asks her if she valued Sev as a man:  They both married knowing she was in love with another man.   Cande cries that THAT man didn’t value her either!  Dominga entreats Cande not to torture herself with thoughts of a past that cannot be changed.  Dominga walks Cande over to her sitting area and brings her tea.  Cande thanks her weakly and sips.  Take a good look.  I’ve got a feeling we won’t be seeing a lot of this helpless, vulnerable, loose-haired Cande.

they have a bit of a pillowfight. Santi yells at the rooster to keep singing (cocoodling).

Francis runs to latch to Felipe but he did not miss the fact that the video was uploaded by some 'Frank Lop'.  She steals a kiss from him and Carmen sees it.

Back at the house... Diego came to see Rocio...  ISa warns them she does not want 'naco'-related scandals.  Diego is angry at Rocio, she says we were splitting up already.  He rants at her and realizes she is wearing a chain/pendant that Beto gave her. He rips it right off her neck.
Rocio rants that Diego was never charming or delicate with her.  Diego warns her that once the 'farmer' learns about her 'not so normal' features he will get away from her.  Rocio says i was looking for a reason to split with you but this is more than enough. Diego warns her she will come back to him begging.

Que Te Perdone Dios #63 – Benito’s Horrible, Terrible, Very Bad Day, and Mac and Diana Always Get Their Man



Right to new business: After Mateo came home late, without lovin’ on his mind, Diana brings him some breakfast in bed in the morning. But he pushes it aside and wants to take a shower – with no funny business. Since he’s in a novela, he doesn’t know that he can just lock the door to keep stray people out. Diana hurls the tray.

In his own room, Fausto is having an intimate moment with his hat of the day, when Diana rushes in and wants some 20 minute lovin’ while Mat’s in the shower. Fausto gives her the bum’s rush. He’s mad about what Mac said re Diana having a lover, and plus I don’t think him getting caught with Diana could possibly help his “Look at me, I’m making changes” campaign. Diana says if he can’t give her what she needs, she’ll just have to go elsewhere. Fausto assures her, “Te mato” if she does.

La sombra del pasado #43 4/16/15 There are dirty words. Read with caution.

I think I got a set up episode. I felt like it was all over the place, but not in a wasting time kind of way. There are things afoot in Santa Lucia!

El Refrito
Severiano(Sev) convinces Candela(Cande to let down her hair.

Lo Nuevo
It's late and Slivia is surprised Renato is still in his office and notes how tense he is. It's understandable. He's dealing with the death of his mother and his unrequited love for Aldonza. Sylvia gets mighty handsy and asks about how things are going with Aldonza. Renato confesses that things are not going well. He fears it's a lost battle. Sylvia takes this to mean "please kiss me" and she obliges. Renato responds, but soon gets himself under control and tells he tells Sylvia that what they are doing is not a good idea. Sylvia disagrees and continues applying her stress relieving techniques. Little Renato takes over...if you know what I mean.

Que Te Perdone Dios#62: More Snitfits From The Misfits

Parte Uno:
We learn that Diego is the bastard son Constanza could never give Bruno and he was kept close to the house with his abuela after his mother left for parts unknown.  (Bruno kicked the bucket before ever squaring things with Diego—that is, if he ever meant to.  Personally, I don’t think he would’ve liked eating that much crow.)
Renata is gasp-gasp-impactada to hear that Fausto is Mateo’s baby daddy, knows it and that Mat is ignorant of the fact.  Helena imparts her em-bare-assing story to Renata.  Considering the truth ain't out for real yet, the two broads cluck to each other and assume that Feisty, being in the room when his brother “took his own life” probably was affected horribly which accounts for his nasty, anti-social behavior?  Pobre de Fausto!  (Yeah, my heart bleeds.  Another victim of supposed circumstance.)  And pobre de Hellie who says she didn’t stop to think what the consequences would be (in blurting the truth out on your wedding day to your intended you mean???) so badly was she needing to clear her conscience about her affair.  She blames herself for that tragedy.  (Well at least you have figured that much out over that past 30 years.)
Simona is thrilled to speak to her lawyer and tells Father Tomas as much. When she tells Tom that Max’s aunt Ximena sent him from Mexico City to help her pro bono, they both mistakenly assume that it was Max’s idea.

La Sombra del Pasado #42 - Wed 4/15 - Warnings all around

Sev continues his intimidation of Adelina, adding that when he goes down, there are a lot of people going down with him.  Like her.  She was Roberta's "accomplice" in some of what happened--like the murder of Raymundo.  Uh, legally?  No.  Though in the court of public opinion…hell, she's already been tried, convicted, and sentenced, so the only threat there is Aldonza finding out she hid the truth.  Anyway, Adelina finally picks up the groceries and leaves, with smarmy Sev watching her walk away and looking like he's enjoying the view.  Sicko!

Tomas and Abelardo discuss Pru.  Tomas does think Pru is a hottie (well, at least he has good taste), but he's also building up his gigolo clientele.  He counsels Lardo that providing *ahem* mechanical services to women with money is always going to be more profitable than working.

4/15 #169 Hasta el Fin del Mundo – Rata de Dos Patas!!! is all I can say……..

Iker has Daniiiiiiii tied up at Silvana’s depa.  Yikes!  She’s trying desperately to get away from him and tells him she loves Lucas.  She tells him one time too many and he breaks.  He turns from psycho amorous to psycho angry in one second flat!  “Don’t say that!  Don’t ever say that!  I love you Daniela!”  She repeats that she loves Lucas and could never love Iker.  This isn’t what Iker wants to hear and he puts the gag over her mouth again.  I have to say the actress playing Daniela, Jade Fraser, is doing a fantastic job here.  She looks terrified.

Casa de Chava/Casa Ripoll
Armando calls Chava with the news that Dani is missing, wondering if he might know where she is.  Meanwhile, the Ripolls and Fausto are grilling Aurora the maid about what happened the last time she saw Dani.  She tells how Dani asked Iker for juice and he mixed it up for her.  She doesn’t know anything else because she locked herself up in her room.  The Ripoll family & Fausto call around looking for Dani.  ¡Que angustia!  Fausto even leaves a voicemail for Iker!  It appears she hasn’t been in an accident and the cops say they can’t do anything for 72 hours.  Greta only hopes Lucas hasn’t got her mixed up in something stupid.  Doorbell rings and the cavalry has arrived!  Chava has come to offer his help.  Greta declines his help, saying there’s nothing he can do but Fausto interrupts her, saying any help is welcome.  Greta returns to her room to keep making calls.  Sofia updates Chava on who they’ve called but there are still some hospitals and police precincts they haven’t checked.

Que Te Perdone Dios Capitulo 61 -Discussion(Recap) Full Recap

Refrito's : There aren't much of refrito scenes , most of them included  Pat' decision to call Xi & Efrain calling Ren for Judgment Day !

Present: ( Some scenes were merged) 
 ( I must say  the Bar-Ren scenes were quite hard  scenes to recap  , they would have took me ages to recap  in perfection and  i am not in the mood to drag this for too long since by the time I finish them Fausto would have already  became Dictator ! )  To sum the scenes  all up ,  Bar was basically shredding Ren to bits for her supposed secretive and manipulative ways that dragged Pab to the Pits just so that she could marry Fausto in clean white  glory .  Bar also accuses of now playing with Pat's emotions like Pab's  ,   playing a mask of innocence and for forcing Abi to live with Mac to hide her embarrassing  secrets but he"s not surprised at all since that's what rich people are known for right? . Ren keeps claiming that she"s innocent  , constantly defending her guts from the ranting Bar who shares  a face of Terminator and informs him that he should know that she was a victim too but Bar won't listen to her but promises that Abi will be told nothing cause it would utterly destroy her cause her very mother decided to raise her not & has ashamed of her . Ren exclaims that she has always protected and watched over her but Bar is not satisfied much, after Brutus croaked nothing could hold Ren hostage ( Except the Ogre who must not be named nor has a name nor soul neither emotion less for his Hat  still remains ) He himself will not forgive her abandonment , may God do it Yo No!

4/14 Tue #168 Hasta el Fin Del Mundo – Fifty Shades of Iker

Episode really jumped around tonight so I liberally moved things around.  

Slimy Geronimo insists Sofia share what’s bugging her.  She stupidly tells him her relationship with Chava is over and rushes off.  This is music to his ears.

Back at Empresa Ripoll
The chisme is all over the secretarial pool.  They’re discussing how Chava left in tears.  When Patricio walks by,  they act like nothing’s going on but Noemi tells him the chisme.  She’s sure Chava and Sofia are over.

Depa de Irais
Matias comes looking for Jobeth.  Irais tells him she has no idea where she is.  He spies Jobeth snogging with that guy in the snazzy car.  Matias yanks her out of the car and the guy splits.  He and Jobeth argue.  She tells him she was only saying goodnight to the guy and she doesn’t like jealous scenes.  She tells him like it is, cheap ring, cheap cars.  She expects only the best from someone she’s dating.  Maybe, just maybe, the truth is getting through to our Jughead Matias.

She ends up giving him back the ring.  Jughead still doesn’t get it.  He calls after her, saying he can get a bigger ring and even a better car.  I don’t like this character, but I can’t help feeling sorry for the guy.

La sombra del pasado #40 4/13/15

Please join me in thanking hellashelle for her recap!! THANK YOU HELLASHELLE!

Rewind: Severiano (Sev) reams Abelardo (Lardo) out. (Renato) Ren’s shirtless post-shower phone convo. (Candela) Cande suspects Sev of cheating. (Cristobal) Cris suspects both of his parents of attempted murder.

Play: Cande goes apoplectic. How dare Cris accuse them of something so low?! How humiliating! Unlike Cande, Cris doesn’t have apparent short term memory loss, so he reminds his mom that she interrupted a funeral mass and slapped the bereaved. That was completely different! Cande insists. (Yes, villains never think the rules apply to them.) Sev steps in to say that what hurts the most is that Cris believes the priest (here he gives Cande a hard look), who’s had Sev entre ceja y ceja (=between eyebrows; had his eyes on him) more than his own parents. This means nothing to Cris, who simply asks again if it was them. Sev screams back that he doesn’t have to take this disrespect. Cande cuts him off and says that it’s one thing for them to hate Aldonza, for obvious reasons, but quite another for them to be criminals. Sev orders Cris to get out of his sight and for a second Cris looks like he thinks he really f*d up with his folks, but then he warns them that if he finds out they’re behind this mess, he himself will denounce them to the police.
