La Piloto#55: The Time Bomb Explodes

  • While Yolanda and DEADave are walking back to AeroTours, John is on the cell phone telling Oscar which cell he’s in and where it’s located.  “—We’re working on it, Bro.”

  • Yolo tells Dave she’s tired of all the crap she’s been put through and it was never what she wanted (I believe.  Again I have no CC’s.)  She notes a scratch from a bullet on his arm.  They go into Auntie Rosalba’s old bedroom to fix it up.  The two fix up their relationship as well.  Love in the afternoon transpires.

  • Rubio and SantaMaria drive towards the AeroTours parking lot in the meantime and Viewerville panics.  There’s a request for the ambulance driver (now presumably dead as a doornail out in the campo somewhere) to report in by radio.

La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo (LDVDEC) #11 5.22.17: To ICE(y) Hell and Back...

• Mercy tells Ryan that she took 5 pills and Ryan insists on taking her to the hospital. Mercy doesn’t want to because she loves being there with her two children. Ryan thinks she’s talking nonsense and goes to make a call.
• Danilo announces to the audience that he is going to perform a new song for a friend, who he hopes knows he is always there to help her. Morgana smiles, thinking it’s her, but Laustela, walking backstage, hears him and smiles, knowing it’s really their song. Danilo begins to sing and sees Laustela at the edge of the stage. He sings to her but Morgana begins to dance seductively in front of him and takes him away. Laustela shakes her head at the whole thing and leaves as Danilo tells Morgana to put a sock in it and get off the stage.
• Later, in the dressing room, Laustela asks Morgana if she is okay but Morgana chides her for the poor condition of the dressing room because there isn’t even a sofa for her to lie down when she has a headache. Laustela explains that it is simple festival, and they don’t have fancier accommodations, but Morgana reminds her that she should, at least for the guests of honor. Laustela will be sure to tell Ryan and Tato and goes to leave but Morgana asks if she’s Ryan’s woman because she would like to give Ryan her message personally and see if she can flirt with him. Laustela smiles and reiterates that she will tell him as Genesis comes and tells Laustela that Don Chayo is ready to go on stage and need her help. Laustela leaves with her but leaves her beg behind. Morgana sees it, checks to see no one is outside, and takes it with her.

TELEMUNDO Y MÁS (#1): El Capo, La Querida del Centauro2, & más: Week of May 22, 2017

Welcome to Page #1 (Monday edition) of the Telemundo y Más page, issued twice a week: Mondays at 3:00 PM and Thursdays at 8:00 PM.

Here are the current telenovelas (all times are Eastern Daylight Time):

• 10:30AM-12PM—Corazón Valiente (except Tuesday)
• 10:30AM-12PM—Un Nuevo Dia (Tuesday only)
• 12-2PM—Gonul
• 8-9PM—El Capo
• 9-11PM—La Querida del Centauro2  (repeats at midnight, check your local listings)

Guerra de Ídolos has been relegated to Saturday nights, 9-11PM; Commenting has been understandably light since Telemundo, in their infinite wisdom, has decided to play fast & loose with the schedule. Your moderators, Juanita & LXV are as dismayed as anybody about the bad programming choices made recently by Telemundo. We want to encourage anybody watching any of the shows to post their thoughts about it--random comments, what they like, what they don't, whatever. It doesn't have to be a recap; it doesn't have to be long: your thoughts in a few sentences, just to keep the page alive during this drought. We'll even open the page up to La Fan watchers, who have indicated that part 2 is better tha part 1.

Everyone is welcome to join in the conversation.  Since discussions of all the Telemundo novelas share the same page, please remember to put the name of the telenovela you're referring to at the top of your post, so readers can easily find the conversations they're looking for.

By common agreement, this group DOES NOT discuss previews, trailers, or any other plot information not found in a current or past episode of the current production. Spoilers WILL be removed by the admin. This includes reference to earlier productions of the story, and even the original novel. Thanks for your cooperation!

La Piloto #54: Catch But No Release

Part 1~~
Zuli eavesdrops as Lisbet and Raul get whatever information they can on Amanda’s condition by Raul pulling rank with his badge.   They learn that she was hit by a car and is now being prepped for the baby’s delivery, 2 months prematurely.  Zuli decides to disguise herself as a janitor (we assume to finish the job on Mandy).  Olivia calls Bette just then and gets the word. She and Wilmer drive up to the hospital.

DEADave and Yolanda drop Moni off at the police station—where both of them are now personas non gratas—for the latest.  Dave gives Yoli more bullets and tells her naively that everything will be just fine now that John’s behind bars.  Yoli, wise to that says nope, not till he’s behind bars in the States will it be over.

La doble vida de Estela Carrillo #10 Friday, 05/19/2017 First kiss, first fight

Sorry this is late, but whenever I got into writing, my daughter needed something: to dance, to play, a snack...
Here goes, I hope I didn't forget anything.

There is a party at Furia. They are celebrating Estela's arrival , Don Chayo signing a new contract and Danilo becoming part owner of the company. Morgana wants Dani to introduce her as the girlfriend, but he barely acknowledges her presence. He is busy talking to Don Chayo's lawyer, trying to convince him to go into the money laundering business. The lawyer is appalled at first, but Dani seems to be getting to him.
Mercy and Joe leave the party early; she's had enough of her step-son for now. There is some news in the papers: the prosecutor who worked on Ryan's case and his assistant died in an "accident".

Estela asks Ryan to leave the party room, too, because she needs to make out talk things out with him. Why is he still on her case, he does know that she's leaving as soon as the Jaripeo is over, right? He takes her to somewhere more private, the stage of the big auditorium where the festival will take place. They get into a fight about his reasons for inquiring into her future. Why does he care, why can't a promise for help be just that, with no strings attached?
Ryan can't help it, he needs to discover the mystery that is Estela and all her mysterious life and mysterious past and ... he gets the  crazy eyes, if she weren't into him so much, it would look borderline obsessive. Estela says that she needs her space, but what Estela actually wants is to kiss him. And that she does, with no resistance coming from him. Bright screen behind them, it looks like the perfect first kiss...that is, until Ryan says that he never thought anyone would make him feel the same as Realstela did. Dude! Way to ruin a good thing. Good luck getting back into Fauxstela's graces now.

La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo (LDVDEC) #9 5.18.17: Two Lawsuits and a Surprise Party Later...

Hey all! Sorry it's only bullet points but here goes:
  • Danilo asks Ruben to think of a way to benefit from his shooting but poor Ruben's still trying to recover.
  • Ryan comes and reveals that he went to Michoacan to find out more information about her past and everyone told him that her and Fausto took Herminia's and left her in the lurch. Laustela explains that Fausto lied and didn't tell her the money was stolen from her aunt; she found out later that it was Herminia's. She laments the fact that her aunt died thinking she was a thief but tells Ryan that she, Paloma and Rosario are gone after they pay her the festival money. Ryan hopes she keeps her word this time. 
  • Mercy then finds Ryan and insists she register Paloma as his daughter, pronto, and he reveals that she is actually not his. Sometime later, she tells Joe the truth about Paloma, worried, as Danilo can now impregnate any old bimbo and win the 20% of them.
  • Later, Laustela finds the box Ryan brought back with her things and cries, remembering her love for aunt. 
  • Mercy and Danilo have another confrontation and Danilo shuts Mercy up by telling her that she is looking mighty good lately, much to her surprise.
  • The next day, Genesis tells Laustela about the latest media scandal: Ruben reported Don Chayo for shooting him because he was jealous that his band was going to perform at the festival. Laustela is shocked as she thought Ruben had cleared up the incident and declared it was an accident.

Arley begs her to listen and tells her that there is money hidden in Cielito Lindo and remembers when he first stashed it there, as Zulima was nosing about. He tells Amanda that he is sure the Lucios weren’t able to get it out and she should go get it and use it for their child.

La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo #7, 5-16-17, Breaking News: Dead Men DoTell Tales

Anita, here, substituting for Alfredo, so he can have the night off. I apologize for the lack of detail, but my heart is in it. Some short scenes have been combined. Ok, here  we go---

Lo de Ayer
Laustela tries to convince Mr. Everwood of the real reason for the mass shooting at the Foundation. He refuses to believe that it’s all about the gangs trying to re-establish lost territory by frightening the citizens of Riverside into looking to the gangs for protection. That and then recruiting new gang members, even from the Foundation. Estela is there to warn him. He still doesn’t believe her and points out that the home invasion at Estela’s proves the action was taken against her specifically and not by throwing blame for the danger to the neighborhood on others. She knows that El Caravelas, a gang member is involved. Everwood is still not convinced as he’s the nephew of Bettina, who is very helpful to the foundation. He thinks Estela is the one responsible and trying to blame others.

Meanwhile, at the La Furia offices, after the reading of the will, Ryan is trying to calm a very agitated Mercy saying he will never abandon her or leave her unprotected. That’s not what she’s worried about. She’s worried about Ryan and what will happen to La Furia in the hands of that buffoon—as she points to Danilo. Ryan is calm. He says what’s written is written and he plans to follow his father’s wishes.
