Barrera - Thursday, June 22
A quickie recap of what happened in Barrera. It was mostly teasing almost discoveries of the many secrets.
A bitchy Nutria supervised her menfolk upacking their stuff at the new house in Santa Maria.
Then she and Unibrow went to see a doctor in Aguascalientes. This doctor thought her prognosis was good. Meanwhile, Unibrow got stuck in an elevator with Valeria and almost found out who she was. Later he thought that a woman like that would be perfect for one of his sons.
Jacinta tells Sergio that if he steals anything from her house, he is out on the street. He is offended but she recalls him as a youth practicing forging his father's signature. Sergio says that his father had all this money but wouldn't give him any and it was all the fault of a woman who took his money and dumped him. He never returned because of the shame.
At the hospital, Sergio meets Nutria in a waiting room and then leaves just before Unibrow and Valeria come in.
Jacinta steals a picture of Federico from Remedios' room.
Remedios was looking at a picture of Pedro and having a sepia recollection of their love when Federico comes in. He sees the picture, accuses her of being Pedro's mistress and then demands to know who his father was - as if it wasn't really obvious. But Remedios doesn't tell him.
Andres and Daniel discuss what might happen when Unibrow figures out that Andres' girlfriend is the daughter of his long lost love. Andres' plan is to introduce Valeria to Unibrow without disclosing her last name and then when Unibrow gets to like her, he'll tell him that she is the daughter of the woman who betrayed him.
Cayetano, Nicolas and Manola find out that Unibrow is back in town. Cayetano suggests that he can help Rodrigo with Gustavo's business. Manola goes to the house and finds out about Nutria's brain tumor since she carelessly left the reports out on the table. Manola says that she won't tell anyone. Right.
Jose discusses with his sister and brother how much he likes Maite but he doesn't like her as a pretty woman but [wait for it] like a daughter. Later Maite tells Jacaranda that she likes Jose too. Jacaranda suggests what, to her, would be the obvious feeling about a rich older man, but Maite says no, it is something else.
Jacaranda is staying with Maite and will hope to recoup her finances by selling off her designer clothing with the help of Jose's sister. Seeing a pair of strappy high heels, Veronica has a flashback to seeing the death of her mother in a similar pair of shoes.
Rodrigo tells Gustavo how much he loves him and that he will take care of his business and then kisses him! Gustavo thinks, 'you are making me so happy...' and that was where the TiVo ended.
Jean, thanks so much for recapping Thursday's episode. You're a champ. I'm glad to hear that Nutria was being bitchy...get some backbone, girl!!
