The big talk
Humberto seems to chicken out of telling “Leonardo” the truth and instead tells him that he knows he’s screwed up a lot since his mom died and he’s sorry. He wants him to know he’s proud of him. More than proud, actually. He loves him. And he hopes that “Leo” won’t judge him too harshly for making mistakes and will remember that he and Sofia were/are the most important people in his life. Pedro calls Humberto back before he walks out of the office to give him a big hug.
Jaime stands inside a building with very little light coming in. He holds his phone in one hand and a gun in the other. Aldo, or someone with a similar voice-changer, asks if he can prove his love for his son by killing someone.
He comes by to “check” on Inés, but he’s barely in the door before he starts in on Jonathan. He quickly moves to painting all the things he did as his way of coping with the loss of their baby.
Elmer is sitting in his office, plugging a USB cable into his computer. He starts to watch footage of Dafne, walking down the stairs of the house where he found her body. She opens the front door and then…
Falling into place
Chamoy presses the crooked baby broker about the whereabouts of his spawn and dares him to go right ahead and call the cops. He tries to refresh his memory, mentioning a comadrona (midwife) who brought him out to where they were staying. Baby broker still denies knowing anything, but you know, if Chamoy DID give him a kid in exchange for some cash, he also would have signed a contract relinquishing his rights.
The episode begins with Elmer in the basement where (we know) Efren was being held. He’s bleeding from a wound on his neck, there’s no ladder in place, and he can’t reach the window. So the question is…how did he get here?
Secrets. Everybody’s got them. Including Telemundo, who were vague enough about what to expect today that some of us weren’t entirely certain what we’d be watching at noon/11c. I mostly kept an eye out to get a definite answer, but I got quickly sucked into this dark drama about a kidnapped child and his desperate family.
How can I possibly summarize this chapter any better than the last line–
Happy Monday! Here’s something to get you going on your Monday morning…Barbara Intriago La Trailera.
