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. Read More

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.

The guests applaud for the bride and Pedro still doesn’t realize what’s going on. He thinks Ignacio’s the one getting married. So…he must be this “Leonardo” the judge mentions, right? He tries to push Ignacio into place in front of Fernanda, but Ignacio pushes right back. Everyone starts asking him what’s wrong, but when the judge asks, Ignacio tells him to please continue, and then leaves Pedro standing there. With Fernanda. In front of the judge. I’d love to hear his internal monologue. Read More
