While Pedro stresses about the seemingly inevitable collision of Ignacio and Leonardo, Leonardo is still trying to find out what’s wrong with Paloma. He makes an incorrect assumption and it’s Cachito who tells him Paloma is his MOM not his sister. Ignacio moves to avoid someone and turns his back on Leonardo at just the right time. Pedro summons a child over and starts whispering instructions to him.
We return you to your smoochies already in progress. Pedro thinks this is way better than his dream. He could die happy right now…or kiss her for the rest of his life. When Fernanda says she loves him, he wants to clarify… “me? Or the other one?”
- I didn’t think I was going to survive this long break between episodes. Dear Telemundo, please avoid a preemption in the future.
- Wowzers it feels like a lot happened!
- No opening credits. Damn.
- They better make the song available, dammit.
Memories…like the corner of my mind…
We get to relive the kiss and all the wide-eyed gaping from the family. Pedro grumbles outside the window. Paloma breaks off the kiss. The rest of the family gets all excited. Pedro and Paloma!!! [Too bad it’s actually Leonardo!!!] Leonardo asks the others if he and Paloma can talk alone.
The Landino case
Domingo meets with the Chango the mechanic. They drink on Chango’s boat as Domingo tries to get in contact with Landino. Chango uses one of those push-to-talk phones to contact Landino, and Domingo and Landino talk about how Domingo got out. Domingo says he bribed a bunch of people, and Landino tells him good for you, then hangs up.
Marina defends her testimony on Mercurio’s behalf with “It was the truth.” Her bosses don’t care. She wasn’t authorized to take responsibility, it makes the agency look bad, the news will be all over it, blah blah blah.
Not a lot of our favorite guy this episode. Mercurio is out of jail and looking for a job. Unfortunately, political asylum doesn’t automatically come with permission to work and no one will hire him without work authorization.
The trial of Rogelio starts with Domingo Sanchez being called to the witness stand.
First, some good news
El Molcajete is on an upswing. Merce and Rosa are thrilled to be so busy and Merce hopes it will get Sara out of debt–and out of CONATROL–faster. Rosa knows what’s what, though…Sara and Antonio can’t keep away from each other. An invitation to a cheese and embutido tasting comes in and Merce wants to encourage Sara to go.
Fernanda and Ignacio frantically tuck clothes back in, and Ignacio goes to hide while Fernanda opens the door to “Leonardo.” She barely even looks upset until he shows her the flowers and chocolates. Since “he” had told her before that he thought those things were cheesy. Pedro babbles an apology until she rips them out of his hands and tells him to sit down. He sits right next to her. Personal space, Pedro.
I feel the need to warn you in advance that there was a lot of Pedro today, so you can have your antacids or your lavender essential oils or a strong cocktail at the ready.
Some people are getting warmer and some are getting ready for the fires of hell
Simon lights up the sticks, which he has used to spell “I love you, Edwina!” No, I wish. They spell out “SOS.”
