Meanwhile, Ricardo decides to salvage what benefits he canfrom his brief relationship with Daniela, before she spills the beans to all.He calls up Alfredo and tells him he now believes Dani deserves a younger (andbetter) man than himself. He agrees to dump Dani if Al pays up as promised. He’lltext Al the amount he wants and his bank account number to transfer the money,ASAP. Ric next calls up someone whom he needs to see right away.
Milagros makes a call to Alfredo to confirm that she nowknows that Lucia’s mother’s name was indeed Adriana. She quickly hangs up whenMarcelo arrives home. They discuss his unsuccessful chat with Dani—she’s stilldetermined to stick with that lout (patán) Ric. Mili tries to convince Marcelothat the best way to get over Lucia is to get a leg over Daniela (un clavo sacaotro clavo/one nail drives out another). Marcelo’s been there, done her, andhas no desire to repeat it—he’s in love with Lucia, NOT Dani.
Teresa brings a tray of dinner to a sad, pensive Lucia inher room, determined to make her eat. Lucia swears that she ate already at TiaMagdalena’s house. Tere knows that Lucia is so down because she fought withMarcelo—Lalo told her. She lists all of Marcelo’s great qualities. Lucia knows.She’s the one who can’t give him what he needs. Well, Lucia better get her assin gear (poner las pilas), because there are all kinds of hos (lagartonas) outthere, ready to snap a good man up! (Lucia’s face at this colorful commentaryis hilarious.)
Lucia changes the subject and asks Tere about Lalo. Terehappily tells her that they are now officially novios. Lucia gives her a bighug and tells Tere that Lalo is a great man. Tere agrees that he’s a reallygood person.
Lalo’s evening meal of Lala Milk and pastries is interruptedby a knock at the door. It’s his new neighbor, Clara. She’s come to ask him ifhe knows of any available cleaning jobs. Lalo would love to help, but thefactory where he works is currently topsy turvy (patas para arriba). Seeing howdisappointed she is, Lalo offers Clara a job cleaning/washing/shopping for himtwice a week. He apologizes for not being able to pay her much. Clara’s justgrateful and thanks him profusely. He gets his spare key from its hiding placein the bird cage, and tells her he trusts her and has a good feeling about her.She’ll start tomorrow.
Alfredo calls his investigator to tell him that, of thethree women he asked him to investigate, he should pay special attention toRebeca Murillo. It’s likely that she’s used the name Adriana Murillo. Al thengets a call no parent wants to get. Something’s happened to Dani.
Turns out Ric called Amador, who’s annoyed to have beensummoned so late to Ric’s place. Ric shoves the fraud charge document at Amadorand demands to know just who is Marcelo Escalante. Why does he know DanielaSuarez—you know, the girl whose testimony put your son in jail? Amador revealsthat Dani is/was Marcelo’s fiancé or girlfriend or something. Why? Amador is shockedto learn that Dani was Ric’s recent target…er, girlfriend. “What are you doing with such a sophisticated kid/brat (escuincla)?”Ric points out that the real issue here is that Dani just saw all the fraudcharge documents. “How could you be suchan idiot?! Why did you show her the papers?!” Ric tells him it was anaccident, and she likely didn’t understand much, but she’s probably going towarn Marcelo (poner sobre aviso). However, he doesn’t think that it’ll helpMarcelo much, since he won’t have time to mount a defense (un amparo) before he’sarrested. He just thought he should inform Amador, just like Amador should haveinformed HIM! Amador throws the blame back on Ric for his unprofessionalism andirresponsibility (is there such a thing among criminals?). “I don’t understand how you could havegotten involved with a girl who’s half your age, who could practically be yourdaughter?!” Pot meet kettle, responds Ric. He reminds Amador that he wasrecently involved with a girl just a little older than Dani, who’s also nowDEAD, under strange circumstance. Amador backs down and leaves without a word. “That’s what I thought. Bye.”
Rebeca wakes Nora up from deep sleep in the middle of thenight, to grill her about Daniela and if her last name is Suarez. Does Noraknow her father’s name or if she has siblings? Nora is half asleep and totallyconfused, but confirms that Suarez is her last name and she was the one whosetestimony put Rodrigo in jail for her cousin’s murder. Why? Rebeca makes up anunconvincing excuse about it being convenient if Dani knows about the Lucia-Marcelobreakup and tries to get him back. Once out in the hallway, Rebeca has a minifreakout. “Oh my God! He’s her father!”
Alfredo, meanwhile, is in the hospital panicking and tryingto locate Dani. He’s sent to urgent care.
Brigida is waiting up for Amador, having a coffee, when hegets back. He’s vague about why Ric wanted to see him, but confides that hedoesn’t trust Ric’s skills. Brigida doesn’t understand why Amador hired him.She then turns the talk to gossip, and asks if Ric ever confided why he dumpedMagda at the altar. Amador gives Brigida some juicy gossip by telling her thatRic said he did it for another woman– Amador doesn’t know who. And on top ofthat, Ric claims to have a daughter– Amador doesn’t know with whom. ThenAmador gives Brigida the juiciest piece of gossip of all—Ric’s been dating thatstupid girl, Daniela Suarez! That tidbit gets Brigida hot. That girl accusedRod of killing Amador’s lover! She can’t even hear that girl’s name, and shehopes she and Marcelo go to hell! They dated, right? “Yep. Marcelo Escalante Fuentes. We’ll have to pray that that sillygirl (babosa) doesn’t ruin our plans.” Brigida is left utterly confused bywhat Amador means by this. What plans?
The next morning, Mili pounds on Marcelo’s door. He was inthe shower and didn’t hear his cell phone. Mili shares the alarming news thatDani was in an accident last night, and Alfredo is a wreck since he doesn’tknow anyone here or anyone who can help get him info in the hospital. Marcelowill get dressed right away.
Rebeca doesn’t give Lucia, who’s also fresh from the shower,the courtesy of waiting before barging in. She tells Lucia that the willreading is happening that morning, like now. Lucia will be ready in 10 minutes!Downstairs, Magda has just arrived to check on Lucia. Rebeca comes down thestairs, looking very pleased with herself. She barely manages to look sincereas she thanks Magda for taking such good care of Lucia when she was sick. Itwas her friend Sara, who attended her, right? “Not just her, but another doctor who reviewed the medical analysisLucia had done. He mentioned something that I thought was very strange…ApparentlyLucia ingested something that provoked a series of ailments (malestares). Butyou know what’s odd? She doesn’t remember taking anything. Do you know what itcould have been?” Rebeca tries to come up with her best cluelessly innocentface, then claims she has NO IDEA what it could have been. Magda puts her cardson the table and tells Rebeca that she knows she did it, because she detestsLucia! Rebeca calls her crazy. Magda’s not having it. “Watch your back, Rebeca! Because, as I’ve told you many times, Luciais NOT alone!” Rebeca seems more than ready for that fight.
Lucia’s arrival ends the verbal duel, and Rebeca makes apoint to stop Lucia on the stairs, smile at her and touch her, and ask how she’sfeeling, while Magda stares daggers at her. Lucia hugs and kisses Magda, andconfides in her that she’s going to seek Marcelo out to talk to him. Shedoesn’t know if she’s ready to get back together with him, but she wants to apologizefor being so rude (grosera), and wants him to know that she loves him. Magdaapproves.
Marcelo and Mili are rushing out of his building to go tothe hospital, when detectives and officers arrive to tell him he’s under arrestfor fraud. Mili starts arguing with the cops, defending her son as being honestand honorable. They are not moved. Marcelo doesn’t waste time. He gives Milihis cell phone, with instructions to call Mario Hernandez for his legal representation,and call Sara Ezquerra for her help at the hospital. The cops cuff him and takehim away.
Clara is trying to convince Benito to come with her over toLalo’s, since his Madrina can’t come sit with him today. He insists he can beleft alone. He’s mad at her for not calling the detective, so that she can clearup the situation and they can leave her in peace. Clara refuses. After sheleaves, Benito searches for and finds Detective Ramos’ card.
I’m not even going to laugh, because my 78 year-old daddoesn’t know how to use a smart phone, and doesn’t want to know. It’s takingMili and Rafaela working together to figure out how to get to Marcelo’s contacts to find and call Mario and Sara. They eventually get it done.
The Gaxiola women are SLAYING their matching navy blue andblack ensembles, as they sashay into the judge’s chambers for the will reading.
Mario greets them at the door of the conference room, butonly Lucia has the courtesy of returning his greetings and kissing him hello.He steps out when he gets the desperate call from Milagros. He assures her he’lltake care of it, then calls Sergio to ask him to head down to the policestation to deal with the Marcelo problem, until he can finish up with the willreading. He tells Sergio to be discreet, and especially not mention the case toLeticia.
Rebeca picks up on Mario’s worry, but he claims it’s just awork issue he has to take care of later. Nazario walks in, which makes Luciahappy, but not Rebeca. Mario explains that Alonso made Naz the executor(albacea) of his will. Rebeca is really not pleased now. The judge arrives andbegins to read the last will and testament of Alonso Gaxiola Beltrán.
The detective at the station explains the charges to Marceloand the process. He’ll be held there until his bail hearing. As Marcelo isbeing taken away to the cells, Detective Ramos recognizes him and stops in histracks wondering what is going on.
Back to the will reading… The main gist of it is thatLucia and Nora get all of the money and properties (that includes the house),50/50. Rebeca is about to have a fit! “There’snothing for me, his wife?!” But we’renot done. Now we get to Al’s shares (acciones) in Talavera Gaxiola…40% forLucia; 40% for Nora; and 20% for Rebeca. But wait, turns out Al made a finalmodification, and the judge is going to honor it. Al’s last instructions werethat Lucia and Nora still get 40% each, but Rebeca only gets 10%. Rebeca jumpsout of her seat to protest. Who is getting HER other 10%?! Nazario calmly says,“Me.” And he’s got the documents thatshow the legal transfer of the shares to his name. Oh, snap! Mario takes thedocuments from Naz and gives them to the judge. Everyone’s facial reactions aregreat, but Rebeca’s are just epic. LOL!
Lucia is happy to rub this fantastic new development inRebeca’s face. “As you see, my godfatheris also now an owner of the factory. And now not you, nor anyone, can fire him.”They all sign the legal documents, and Rebeca storms out angrily. Noraseems pleased that she got exactly what Lucia got, and more than her mother got.Lucia excitedly walks out hand-in-hand with her padrino. She wants to go to thefábrica right now and throw this in Amador’s face. Naz first wants to knowabout the maybe-baby. Lucia gives him the update that it was just a falsealarm.
At the hospital, Sara approaches Alfredo and introduces herself,explaining that she’s Marcelo’s friend and here to help. She spoke with Dani’sdoctor, and she’s in good hands. She explains that they are still waiting ontest results to make a diagnosis of Dani’s condition. Sara does him the favorof taking him to see Dani through the intensive care window. She is unconsciousand on a ventilator. Al worries and cries at seeing his daughter in this state.
The cops let Sergio into the cell to see his client Marcelo.The two know of each other, but this is the first time they’re really meeting.Sergio explains that Mario will arrive once he’s done with another client.Marcelo swears he’s not guilty, and he knows who’s behind framing him—Rebeca Murilloand her accomplice, Amador Zúñiga! Sergio tries to keep his poker face upon hearing his BFF’s dad being accused of framing someone for fraud. Heassures Marcelo he has nothing to worry about, if that’s true. The judge willdetermine if he can come out on bail (salir bajo fianza), but Mario and Sergioare on it.
Rebeca and Nora arrive home. Nora’s still on a high, whileRebeca is about to explode. She can’t believe that Al only left her crumbs(migajas)! Nora points out that Al likely took into consideration that Rebecahas her own fortune that she inherited from her parents, that she hasn’t eventouched. Rebeca says it’s not the same, and she’s really pissed that he tookthe shares that were supposed to be hers and gave them to that old man! And she’soffended that he didn’t leave her any part of the house. “Don’t worry. I’m half owner, and I won’t leave you in the street”, saysan oh so generous Nora. But, Lucia might not feel the same, so maybe theyshould offer to buy her half.
Rebeca doesn’t think that’s a bad idea, but right now hermain concern is the fábrica, because that’s what really has value. “You and I have to be more united than everto make decisions. Because surely your sister will ally with her padrino. Andwe can’t allow them to take what’s OURS!” Nora wants to know what they’regoing to do about Amador, since he’s still a partner (socio). Rebeca says sheknows how to handle him.
Ric calls Amador and informs him that Marcelo is in thepokey. Amador wants to go out for a celebratory drink, but Ric has to go to thebank. Amador yells for Normita. Since he doesn’t get a response, he goes out tothe empty reception area, and keeps walking towards the courtyard, where allthe employees are gathered, surrounding Naz and Lucia. Lalo congratulates Nazon his return and gives him a big hug. All the other employees clap. Luciaannounces that Naz is back to stay! While looking over at Amador, she pointedlysays, “No one, ever again, can push himout of here! Through the wishes/orders (disposición) of my father, he is nowalso an owner.” Happy applause and cheers from the employees. Amador is notso happy. Ha!
Lucia asks Normita where Marcelo is. No clue. Lucia decidesto wait for him in his office. At the hospital, Alfredo thanks Sara for herhelp, then Mili approaches him. He tells her how nice Marcelo’s friend Sara hasbeen to him, but it’s obvious Marcelo doesn’t care about Dani, otherwise he’dbe here. Mili breaks the news to him of Marcelo’s arrest for fraud. Marcelo’sphone rings, and when Mili sees it’s Lucia calling, she ignores it, mumblingthat Lucia is responsible for all their misfortunes. Meanwhile, Lucia’s worried that Marcelo didn’tanswer, but she doesn’t want to deal with his momster by calling his housephone. Dani’s attending doctor arrives and tells Al and Mili that Dani has an intracranialhematoma, and they’ve induced a coma to prevent additional damage. Now theyjust have to wait to see if the hematoma grows or disappears. “Does this mean my daughter could die?” “Yes.If the hematoma doesn’t disappear, and we have to operate, the chances of thathappening are high.” Alfredo is impactado and heartbroken.
