Enamorandome de Ramon #8 8.17.17: Annoying Grandmothers and Overbearing Mothers...

Hortensia looks the insurance policy over with a magnifying glass and announces that Ricardo’s signature is fake and she knows because she would know her son’s signature anywhere. Porfirio argues that Pedro would’ve noticed too and told him but Hortensia is not listening. She looks through the policy and finds another signature page; she shows Porfirio that there various in the signature, even within the same document. Porfirio explains that there are always slight variations but Hortensia thinks the variation is too great to be coincidence.

Fabiola doesn’t want to hear Juana’s explanations but Juana argues that she misunderstood. Either way, she’s shocked Fabiola would even think she’d take the money. Ramon tries to defend Juana but Fabiola screams that he’s only there to see what he can get from his mother when she inherits the money. She thinks it’s strange that he suddenly appeared, after all these years, but Ramon didn’t know about the money and doesn’t need it. Fabiola explains that she trusted Juana, but Juana lied, and now their trust is broken. Ramon thinks Fabiola is saying stupidity after stupidity but Fabiola demands he keep out of their business. Juana stops them both and announces that she was only there to tell her that she is giving Hortensia the money as soon as she receives it.

Dead Men Rising

[Repeated Scene: Ryan brings good news to Laura—there is nothing left to connect her to the money laundering at Furia. Laura is relieved and gives Ryan a nice long hug. Their little celebration quickly gets stifled when the official comes in and tells them they have found five badly decomposed bodies on her property.] Rosario and Luisa, who have been standing close by are shocked and listen as Laura states that it must have happened before they moved in. The official advises them that the forensic team will need to complete their investigation. Ryan believes that Danilow must have been responsible since he lived there before and urges the investigator to go after him, but the official tells them that his division is responsible for the investigation, but they must wait for the forensic team to identify the bodies. When Luisa asks if they are safe or in danger, he tells them everything looks to be in order so they shouldn’t have to worry (with five dead spirits roaming outside the door). When the official advises Laura that she will have to make a statement, Laura agrees. Rosario is appalled that they have been living so close to dead bodies.

At Hortencia’s house she continues pressing Porfirio to fight to get money from insurance company away from “that woman”. Porfirio insists that he needs time to study different alternatives.

La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo (LDVDEC) #69 8.15.17: Couch Diving For Murder Weapons

Or Another Bun Bites the Dust

Even though Luisa is there to protect her, Asdrubal manages to get close enough to Laura to hand her a note and run away, though Luisa doesn’t even try to catch him. Instead, she tells Laura that she has someone waiting for her in the dressing room and leaves her alone (!!!). Laura opens the note and reads.

Later, Ryan welcomes Laura to her dressing room with a bouquet of roses (which are part of his long road to forgiveness) as Paloma and Rosario come in and congratulate Laura. As Ryan congratulates her too, Genesis comes and tells them that the Producer Award Show will be cancelled because they don’t have a venue. She suggests they try to host it in Los Primos and Ryan promises to make it happen (maybe he will finally uphold one of his promises).

Enamorandome de Ramón, #5, Aug. 14, 2017: Hortenacious Gets A Flicker While Hearts Afire Get Burned

Here is the recap, courtesy of RGVChick:

[Repeated scene: Juana lashes at Hortensia that she has no right to run her off, but Hortensia can’t wait to tell her granddaughters what Juana is doing here. Hortensia blasts away telling Fabiola and Andrea that they need to run Juana off. Fabiola doesn’t understand why, so Hortensia explains that no one knows what schemes Juana used to bamboozle her father and now she’s setting her eyes on Julio.] Hortensia alerts them to the fact that Julio was there and they didn’t even know it. Juana tries to explain that Julio was only there to see how the girls were doing, but Fabiola questions why Juana didn’t tell them. Juana clarifies that they were still asleep and she didn’t want to wake them. She points out that she only offered Julio a cup of coffee, just as she would when her bosses were alive. After Hortensia chides Juana for running the house as if it were her own and orders her to get her things and leave, Fabiola stands up for Juana and tells Hortensia that they have their differences, but Juana need not leave just because she offered Julio breakfast. Hortensia can’t accept that Fabiola is allowing Juana to run the house as if it were her own, so Fabiola notes that it’s not the first time someone comes to the house without them knowing. Hortensia is chagrined that Juana already has fooled the girls and warns them that they have no idea what Juana is capable of doing to them.

La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo, #68, Mon Aug 14, 2017: Someday a Real Rain Will Come and Wash All This Scum off the Streets

Alt title: Pennies from Heaven

BunMan holds a gun on Estela and says he couldn't wait for her to spring him out of the pokey because someone tried to kill him. "Why aren't you glad to see me? Did you forget our promise to be together forever?" She answers that he broke that promise when he tried to kill her.

Flashback! Estela and BunMan are at the chapel, dressed for a wedding. He warns that the police are getting close to finding El Dorado. She's going to let Ryan think she escaped from El Dorado. BunMan asks what she will say when Ryan asks who El D is; Estela waves this off impatiently, but obviously doesn't have a plan. She tells BunMan to get out of there before Ryan arrives and calls the police.

But BunMan doesn't want to leave. "I might not see you again." Estela dismisses this; she'll go looking for him later. It might be a good idea to wait for a while, though. BunMan asks if she's taking that trip with Ryan after all. Exasperated, she tells BunMan to go so she can call Ryan.

She takes out her phone - whoa, does her wedding gown have pockets? - and calls Ryan. (We shouldn't be able to see Ryan and Laura with their car in Estela's flashback, but we do.) Estela whines that she's escaped from El Dorado. BunMan looks on with growing anger as she sweet-talks Ryan and asks him to pick her up so they can be together. He grabs her, and they struggle briefly before the call is cut off.

La Candidata 8.14.17 Chapter 45: Alonso Leaves Everything for Regina

Cecelia explains to Hernan that she can’t control herself and she feels herself sinking deeper and deeper. She begs him to help her because her family won’t and he begs her to start from zero and move on. She hugs him but he pulls away after a second because he can’t fall in her trap anymore. She asks if he still loves her, and he does, so she asks him to help her. At that moment, he kisses her but they are interrupted by Mauro, who needs to speak to Cecelia. Hernan promises to call her later and walks out as Mauro closes the door. He demands to know what the plan is and Cecelia reminds him that he asked her to keep Hernan under control. Mauro wants to know if she will betray Alonso but Cecelia confesses that her plan with Hernan involves Isela and he shouldn’t tell Alonso, under any circumstances. Mauro demands she start talking or he will tell Alonso.

Regina believes Alonso is planning something because he would never give up his candidacy. Daniela reminds her that Alonso wanted to win his family back but Regina is doubtful because the presidency is his life’s work. Daniela thinks she should use his announcement to her advantage, just like he has used her, but Regina doesn’t work that way. Daniela urges her to rethink her stance because these are the rules of the game.

La doble vida de Estela Carillo, #67, Friday, 08/11/17 Is Ryan very smart or just a sickening kind of stupid?




Since I have no way of knowing the differences between the Uni and the Mexico version, I'll just recap everything that I saw (I think it's the original episode that aired). 
My thoughts about Ryan are in italics.
Estela and Ryan are reminiscing about their plan to go to a Paradise Island in Brasil back in the day. She is laying it on very thick, diabetes patients be warned: nobody ever loved her like he did, nobody ever made her feel like he did etc etc... 
Ryan flinches - did she ever fall for ED?
No, never, he held her captive, how could she when all she dreamed about was to return to him. Ryan can't help but think about it, but the accusation makes her furious, she'd like to forget all about it. Ryan doesn't understand, since just days before she was scared out of her mind. Yes, but staying scared won't help her heal, she needs to move forward. 
Kissy faces, but Ryan rejects her eventually, saying that passion is all good and swell, but this time around he won't do the same mistake, he wants something that lasts. So off to bed he goes. No sex for Estella tonight.
(Is the guy playing a long con, or is he just that gullible?)

La candidata Friday 8/11/17 Capítulo 44: Emiliano Against Alonso--OR--Regina Has A Real Bad Idea--OR--Alonso and Mario Tap Dance Well When They Have To

Regina's house--Regina is with Gerardo and suddenly Emiliano cannot be found. Nobody saw him leave. Gerardo will help her look but where? Regina decides to go to Cecilia's.

Ceciia's apartment--Emiliano has gone indeed to Cecilia's and he walks in on Cecilia and his father having sex. (Unimás censors cut this scene that was pretty tame and only a few seconds long) Alonso is oblivious to Emiliano's presence but it seems that Cecilia might have caught a glimpse of him before he bolts down the stairs and out of the apartment. The slam of the door distracts Alonso and he wonders what that noise was. Cecilia asks Alonso if he left the door open. No, he doesn't think so. Cecilia quickly runs down the stairs but sees nothing.

At the hospital--Mario comments to Hernán that he didn't know that he had changed professions. Besides being a mediocre journalist, he is trying to be a policeman. Mario has no reason to answer Hernán. Hernán wonders if Mario will feel the same way after Almirón gives his statement to the police about all of the crimes he has committed. Suddenly the elevator doors open and a couple of detectives arrive with a few uniformed police officers. A couple of doctors immediately start talking to them. Hernán walks over to join the crowd as Mario stands alone. (sort of like the cheese stands alone??)

La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo, #66, Thur Aug 10 2017: The Woman with the Golden Gun

Or is it "The Golden Woman with the Regular Gun"?

Recap by Rgv Chick and Julie!

Estela threatens Laura that if she continues with the idea that she is El Dorado and if she places that idea in Ryan's head, she'll be sorry. Estela storms out of the restroom as Genesis comes in to look for Laura. Laura breezes past Genesis, saying they'll catch up later.

Playing with the Mexican and US flags on his desk, Danilow tells Horacio that he's bummed that they're making all of this money from the private concerts, but don't get to keep any of it because they have to give it all to gangsters. He is fed up. Horacio reminds him that Asdrúbal is keeping the money for now, and they need to pay Marcelino; eventually they'll get their money back.

Danilow has a great idea: they can get Estela to tell them who El Dorado is, and get their money back from him. Horacio warns him that he always gets into a mess because he doesn't think things through. Danilow accuses Horacio of not knowing how to "smell the business" (giggle). Horacio replies, "What I smell is that they're going to shoot us." Danilow asks Horacio to get Marcelino to give them a couple more days.

Laura calls Chava from outside Ryan's apartment. She insists that she is sure (about Estela being El Dorito). Laura has sent Chava a photo of the lock on Ryan's door and wants his advice on how to pick/bust it. Chava asks why she didn't call him to come help her, and suggests that she look for a hidden key. (You'd think she would have tried that first.) She remembers where Ryan keeps his extra key and finds it. Once she is inside, Chava urges her to get out, but she won't turn back now.
