Shall we begin?
Ale and German go to the restaurant where his paintings are displayed. Acacia and Ulises join them. Acacia says when they go back for Ale to talk to her Mom Cris, she promises Cris will help her. Ale isn't so sure.
Ale, Cris and Acacia are back at the hacienda. Ale says German is such a great guy. Now Cris wants to know about Ale's life. At first Ale is very hesitant, but Cris is quick and smart and says this guy raped you didn't he? Cris wants her to go the police and report him, but Ale is too afraid still. Cris also suggests that Ale go into therapy, but Ale says the only therapy she needs is German, poor girl!
Cris and Esteban kiss and Acacia has to look away.
Luisa is doing better at school and seems she's made some friends.

La Gata # 12 – Tue. 9-16-14 – Augie and Rita: a Partnership Specializing in Making Bad Situations Worse
Next Time, Try Hiring Professionals
The paid thugs break into Rita’s shack and wrestle La Gata, bragging “We’re getting paid a lot!” She begs to know who sent them and continues fighting. A quick flash of Augustin shows him smugly claiming no sacrifice is too great for your child. The kidnappers push the Gata blanket-burrito into their car, but find Damian standing in their way.
As the getaway cars weaves through the dump, Damian whistles for his buddies. They jump into the cart and cut the car off at the pass. The camera cuts away again, this time picturing our pure Pablo strolling the campus, talking to buddy Henry and two attractive co-eds. They think it’s time for a little fun. Back at the dump, the trash warriors take a stand in front of the car. They open the trunk, lifting out Esme, removing her gag, and telling her to calm down while the thugs escape.
Augustin reams out his hirelings for their failure. Lorenza overhears and asks Augustin what he ordered? Better for it to stay unknown, he replies. Damian, Carlos, and the gang share their pride in being a family and protecting one another.

Mi Corazon es Tuyo #42 16 Sep 2014... Fernando finds his parent cap but is still missing his spine and 'co$)#*$&es'
Jenn and Johnny, she suggests he finally get over Ana (she is now seized by Don Fernando’s brother, and he is good eye candy, besides very nice and polite to her) and find a gal who will make him happy.
Diego goes to the Chicago and asks Ino-Doro how much Ana owes him. Ino-Doro learns Diego is Fernando’s brother. Ino-Doro says Ana is my golden egg hen, when she dances the Chicago gets packed full, and I ain’t letting her go. Diego realizes and tells Ino-Doro in his face that he is exploiting Ana. Ino-Doro just calls on his guys to get a bit closer into Diego’s space. Diego says better call them off me… Ino-Doro warns Diego to behave … for Ana’s sake. (ouch!)
Jenn tells Johnny he is not ugly (Feo)… he is just … different. Jenny jokes to Johnny about seemingly having issues with Ana having told him he can stay there. Jen says she will interview for a job at a car shop later, a guy friend of Nico’s. Johnny says no way. Jen says thanks to all you taught me. Maybe he can hire you too. Jen would convince Nico to put in a good word for him…. Paid with kisses, of course.
And we finally get Enrique Basurto on screen. He calls Fanny ‘little girl’. She is a bit abnoxious to him, to tell you the truth. Turns out Enrique and Betty know each other and she seems to have a crush on him. He is also glad to see her again. Fanny tells Fernando on phone that EB is there, she tells EB Fer is ready for him. EB walks in. Fanny tells Betty EB is ‘super –what comes after W… meaning X’.
At the mansion, Ana receives a very nice arrangement of roses (orange, fuscia and pink, with small lilies). Of course they are from Diego. The delivery guy tries to make a pass at Ana and she basically shuts the door on his rear end.
‘I could say you are the most beautiful woman… but I would have to skip over all the rest of your qualities… great personality, generosity, patience and smarts… so many virtues would not fit in this card. All my love, Diego.’
She smiles staring at them once she puts them on top of the piano.
At Costena offices, Fernando (btw, he is the President) is yelling at someone doing a report for him. He has to apologize to EB as EB walked in. Fer says Isa was working at the VP role and she recommended him. His resume is excellent and fits the needs of this business. Fer says he demands commitment to the job. EB makes the mistake to say the receptionist, Fanny, is not really efficient. EB says the girl is also a bit inexperienced and insolent/petulant. Fer laughs it off and then says ‘she is my daughter!’ we hear EB grumble to himself ‘swallow me, ground’ (tragame tierra is a very common phrase in Spanish to mean they would like to be transported anywhere BUT there… sort of the ‘wanna get away?’ slang). Betty tells Fanny she does not want Fernando to know she knows EB, so she sends Fanny with the coffees.
At Leon’s apt, Tamara finds a copy of their marriage certificate. She asks herself ‘what face will Fanny put when she sees our marriage certificate?’

La Gata #11 - Mon 9/15 - La Correspondencia
Carrrrlos comes looking for Virginia and thankfully, when she pulls up in front of the house, she's alone!
Gata cries in Fela's lap about Pablo leaving. Fela is sure he's never coming back, 'cause that's what dudes do. They say they'll come back, but they just leave you lonely and it drives you crazy. She flashes back to sitting with Silencioso, sans beard, in the living room of Casa Negrete, which was far less decorated than it is now, with the baby, and having Silencioso dragged out. Fela thinks it's better to be crazy and take her baby doll out for a walk. Well, sure, when reality sucks this bad…screw it!
The chauffeur is a little worried about leaving Virginia alone with Carrrrrlos, but he has more loyalty to her and Pablo than he does to Lorenza, so he has no problem leaving her for five minutes while he drives the car around the block. Carrrrrrrlos couldn't wait to see her again--harpy of a mother be damned! Virginia just beams.

The She-dog Shows Her Fangs
After overhearing Ana’s admission to Fanny that she is attracted to him, Diego sneaks off all smiles, giving himself a mental(?) high-five. Ana senses that somebody’s overheard her and Fanny’s girly chatter but is too late to catch the culprit. More slumber party activity ensues.
The next morning at breakfast, Jennifer tells Dana she’s got to get another job to help pay back the money Ana borrowed from Don Doroteo to pay for her cancer operation and therapy. She refuses to ask Don Nicolas for the cash, but accepts Dana’s suggestion to at least ask him to help her find a job. And, of course, Don Nico comes through for her. He’s got a buddy/client? that’s got a shop fixing luxury cars. He’ll get the guy to give her a job—as a mechanic???? (More likely as a receptionist, but either way, unless it’s high class hooking, dealing drugs or winning the Irish Sweepstakes, there’s no way in Hell Jens is ever gonna to pay off that kind of loan in this life or the next!)

Hasta El Fin Del Mundo #20: 9/12/14: Dinners At the Ripoll House Never Go Well. Greta Tells Sofia What To Do, Or Else, Missy
Hola Amiguis! My computer has a virus, so I had to get a loaner from a friend. Here is an earworm. The Worst That Can Happen Shall we begin?
Our very wonderful Matthias is making the chocolates. He is mixing and stirring and working his tail off and the end relsult? Perfection! The poor guy is so tired he takes a seat and goes to sleep. He has a dream about winning Maestro for best chocoltier in the world. The guard comes and wakes him up and accuses him of being drunk. Matthias says shut your mouth, well, not that, but the alcohol he smells went into that wonderful chocolate bon bons he just made. He goes.
Isn't he just too lovable?
Sofia and Pato are together and she smoochies him. They are looking at those pics of Alexa. She ends up liking them and now it's on to dinner. Sofia does bring up the fact it's time to find a new Maestro. She hits on the idea that Matthias would be perfect because after all he was the Maestro's disciple. Pato isnt' so sure, and we know why dont' we? No Maestro and Ripoll goes down the tubes. He doesn't want to think about all this right now.

La Gata #10 9/12/14 La Separación
- Not-so-Ernesto (thanks, Susanlynn!) threatens Albecinia (or whatever her name is.) If she keeps advising Esme on how to avoid his pervy attentions, he's going to send her to the archives. He thinks she's jealous of the young hotties.
- Pablo is cute, but dumb. He actually has the nerve to ask Monica to help him convince his parents to let him be with Emse. Bless his heart. Monica refuses.
- Lorenza continues to try to impose her will on Pablo and calls him a mal hijo. She tells him again it's family or Esme.
- Esme does indeed get fired after the jealous wife catches not-so-Ernesto making the moves on our feline heroine. Poor thing! She was completely innocent!
- Pablo and Virginia talk about Esme and Carlos. How did these two end up so nice???
- Emeralda wants Damian's help in registering for school.
Hasta El Fin del Mundo #19: 9/11/14: Pato's Mis Planes Continue and Lucas is One Lucky Boy!
Shall we begin?
The producer of that Chica Ripoll campaign likes Armie. She wants to know if he has ever modeled, would he like to model, he is flattered but won't. He's married.
The school principal calls the Ripoll House and the maid gives the phone to Greta, who promptly blows a gasket. Dani is not in school, skipped school. Greta yells for Fausto. Seems Chava dropped Dani off, watched her go into the school and then left. So now this is Fausto's fault. He and his freewheeling method of dealing with the girls, but especially Dani. Poor Fausto looks so bereft. Greta calls Dani's cell phone and leaves a voice mail that says come home now or else. Poor Dani is outside the police station crying. When Dani gets home, Greta chews her out and she's grounded and no cell phone or computer. She is confined to her room to study. Dani has just lost all her teen lifelines.
Chava goes to the police station and pays Lucas a visit. Chava pulls out the medallion. Lucas tells him it's his. Seems that his Papa won this medal for boxing. Lucas never knew his Papa, and this is all he has. Chava says how alike they are in many ways. Chava goes to visit the Commandante and finds out that all Lucas needs to be released from the hoosegow is for Sofia to drop the charges. Chava will pass it on to Sofia.
Sofia is going over the Ripoll campaign pictures with Alexa, Pato, and Silvana. Everyone likes them but Sofia, she feels they are a bit riskee so to speak. Now on to Thursday:
Sofia isn't liking these pics.

La Malquerida #14: 9/11/14: Intrigue and Machinations, Oh, My!
Shall we begin:
Jules is still questioning Norbie from yesterday about what happened the day that Alonzo had his accident at the Devil's Pass? Jules wants the truth, and it better be good, well not that, but she wants the truth. It's about all his hankering after that Hacienda Benavente and those lands, "that should have been his" in his own words, years ago. Of course he dodges and doesnt' answer.

La Gata #9 - Thu 9/11 - La Despedida
Pablo interrupts his father at work to tell him that…kids grow up and form their own ideas…and he's in love with Esmeralda…and it doesn't matter what her current last name is, because Pablo's going to make her a Martinez Negrete. He wants to marry her ASAP since she won't take any money from him without being married to him.
Virginia, once again, overhears a nasty argument from her room upstairs and heads out to see what's going on. Even Lorenza can hear him screaming at Pablo that he chose the "right" woman… one with money…and no, he wasn't "lucky" to fall in love with her, he just chose a woman who was at his level. In the foyer, Lorenza waves the cook back to the kitchen and stands by Virginia. Mr. Lorenza refuses to help Pablo find a job and doesn't want to hear another word out of him unless it's to tell him that he's getting married to Monica or some other twit who comes from money.

Mi Corazon es Tuyo #38, 10 Sep 2014... Witch Mother moves in the house and acts all entitled... Bruno and Manuela start suffering... Fer and IsaBruja are enjoying their honey-gloom...
Diego trying to convince Ana that Nico will understand her situation and won’t cause trouble with Fer. Ana not so sure. Diego even offers to carry her and take her in his bike… she passes on the first, takes his offer on the latter. She does not want to be too late so Ino-Doro won’t cause her more trouble.
Nico arrives, Dana (Jen’s friend) greets him. Diego joins them… tells Nico ‘wait till you see THE show’. At dressing room, Ana checks on Jen and her treatments. Ana is doing ok… Jen is getting some skin discoloration. Still bringing up the subject of ‘that which has no remedy’ (her not being able to have kids)
At Cozumel (I will be there in Nov as a stop in a cruise trip) Isa is doing her best to seduce Fer… he seems to be willing and follows along, even though the one doing all the ‘love you’ talking is IsaBruja.
(CUT!!! Fer sees an image of Ana very nicely dressed, questioning his having told her 'I love you’ vs what he is doing now)
Isa tries to get him to come back to earth… he asks her for a moment… he is a bit ‘out of it’. And spits his favorite word of late… ‘perdoname’. (sorry). Then he walks away… Isa is a bit confused, a bit miffed.
Ana talks on microphone… says her true name, instantly calling Nico’s attention. Nico is in disbelief. Diego tells Jen ‘no worries, I talked to Ana ‘bout this’. Ana confirms to Nico it is the one and only… She tells the crowd that here is a person she admires and respects… and even asks for an applause for Nico. Then she mentions that Jennis just came out of a serious illness ‘I love you sis!’ and then she tells the crowd that she twisted her ankle… but she will give the audience her best effort… welcome to Chicago!
Jen explains to Nico that she could not tell him that she and Ana have known each other a long time… Jen asks Nico for forgiveness for the little lie…’I will think about it’ (but with a wide smile on his face).
Ana does her show, this time it is Diego who does not miss a beat of it (Fer did it a while back) and she is better than ever… very high on the pole, upside down and spinning around on her legs… Even Ino-Doro is very pleased with her performance tonight.

La Gata #8 9/10/14- La Propuesta
- The Meatball (El Italiano) is wrestled to the ground by Esme and Pablo. Luckily no one is shot. El Italiano leaves in a huff. He yells at Rita because he still can't have his Gata (my mind is in the gutter right now.)
- Pablo goes off somewhere and Mariano takes the opportunity to tell Esme that Pablo actually has a girlfriend already and it's Monica. Of course this upsets me..er..Esme terribly and she begins to cry (while I curse the TV.) Mariano then decides to tell her he was just kidding. He needed to see how much she really cared about his bro. So not cool.
- Later Mariano tells Lorenza that Pablo and Esme are the real deal. Lorenza confronts Pablo. It's either La Gata or his family. Pablo will choose Esme of course. That evening, Lorenza monologues. If that girl wants war, war she'll get! We'll see who wins!
- Lorenza gives Monica tips on how to win Pablo.
- Pablo misses a play date with Esmeralda. Esme is filled with doubt.
Mi Corazón Cap #37 Highlights
Fernando with a "deer in the headlights" look and after being brought back to reality by Isabela finally says "I do". It is very surreal for him.
At that point, Ana cannot take any more and trips on her way out of the church and interrupts the ceremony. Diego follows her. She goes to the emergency room and has a sprain. They leave and go to have some street food. He tells her of his international adventures.
Fernando and Isabela leave in the limo and are smooching in the back.
Fanny explains "honeymoon" to younger kids.
Yolanda shows up demanding to know where her room will be. Bruno shows her a vacant room and she is not impressed and goes back to her house to say goodbye to Isabela before she goes on her honeymoon.
Leon's wife calls him and he has to leave Fanny to go and see to his son who is ill. He lies to Fanny and says he has to go take car of a buddy who was in an accident. Fanny knows something is off.
Fernando has talk with dad. Tells dad that Isabela is not to blame for the situation as it is. Nico reminds him it does take two to get pregnant. Fer only wants Isabela to be happy. Then Fer sees Diego carrying Ana in and it is clear he is not happy.
Fernando says goodbye to the kids and staff. He apologizes to Ana on the way out to leave for his honeymoon. Ana is upset again.
Ana is back crying on her bed when her "fairy" tells her to be happy with the full life she has and just to deal with it.
Fernando is back in the limo thinking about the past and all the great experiences with Ana but telling himself he just has to forget Ana.
Yolanda tells Isabela that the wedding bed is a fundamental to a good marriage so she needs to be like a geisha.
Fernando and Isabela are off on their honeymoon.
León explains to Tamara his wife that he has a girlfriend. She is surprised. León gives Mao his son the medicine his mother got from the doctor for him.
Isabela calls Alicia as she and Fernando are checking into the honeymoon hotel. Alicia asks Isabela to help her plan her quinceañera. Isabela will be more than happy to.
Fanny calls León to touch base and he says it was all a misunderstanding and that his friend wasn't in an accident after all. Fanny is not happy and talks to Ana about her suspicions that León is lying to her about something. Ana will help her get to the truth.
Even with her sprained ankle, Ana is on her way to work. Diego gives her a heads up because his dad Nico is going to the Chicago club to see Jennifer.
As his honeymoon night is about to begin, Fernando is still thinking of Ana and the kids. Isabela comes out in a black negligee. She asks if he likes it. He says she is beautiful. She says she is going to make his wedding night unforgettable.
They leave and go to have some street food. He tells her of his international adventures. (yes, she tells him he is probably not used to street food, and he tells her she doesn't know him yet, that he has eaten even live porcupines and rats... in different countries he has been at)
Fernando and Isabela leave in the limo and are smooching in the back. (more like he was pulled into smooching, but not really into it, as hard as he tried to)
Fanny explains "honeymoon" to younger kids. (when it was mentioned that her dad was in his honeymoon Luz argued that the moon was made of chees and not honey, thus the explanation required)
I also remember toward the end Fanny confronted Leon and told him she knew he was lying to her or at least holding something from her. He was at the virge of crying trying to find a response to that (they were on phone) but you could tell he was conflicted.
When Ana went up to her room after Fernando said 'sorry' to her a few more times on his way out, Bruno was there to console her, kissing her hand. Diego seems to be practicing a lot of restraint, he could tell how Ana still feels for Fernando by her reactions and her crying when he left.
Even Ana's fairy told her to go after Diego, at least it will stay 'in the family'.
