-The next morning, while breakfasting on coffee, fruit andbitterness, the Zúñiga family is interrupted by the cops, who’ve come to arrestone of the male members of the household for the murder of (their shared lover)Ligia Cervantes. Rod, not the deserving Amador, is cuffed and dragged away.Just another morning in Casa Zúñiga.
Brigida orders Amador to do something, but all he does ispromise his scared son that he’ll get the best lawyer and get him out. He urgesRod not to say ANYTHING, then gets into a screaming and shoving match with thedetectives. Brigida demands to know what’s going on and why they’ve accusedRod. Amador swears he knows nothing. “Listen to me, Amador. If I find out that youcould have done something to prevent them from taking my son away, I’ll KILLyou!” Amador tries to calm her down with promises of getting the BESTlawyer, before running out the door to his car, at the same time trying tofigure out just who he can call. He passes on calling Ricardo, saying tohimself that he can’t (call the guy who will surely realize Amador is thekiller and use it against him).
Over in Casa Gaxiola, Lucia hands Tere the letter from Lalo.She’s super confused about who Lalo is, and why he’d write to her. She readsthe letter—“Teresita, ever since I metyou, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you. Will you accept going on adate with me this Sunday?”
Lucia finds a very pensive Alonso having coffee in thegarden. He didn’t sleep well, and was never able to find out what caused Nora’sfreakout from Rebeca. He doesn’t think the therapy is working for Nora. Luciareveals to him that the therapy isn’t working because Nora’s stopped going. Alwants to know why Lucia didn’t inform him, but she points out that if Noradoesn’t want to go, then no one can force her or help her. “But we have to do something!” Lucia knows, but is at a loss for ideas.She heads off to the fabrica to pick up info she needs to work on the marketing,and to get more blood donors signed up. She warns Al that now would not be thebest time for Nora to find out about her and Marcelo getting hitched. Alagrees.
At the hospital, Marcelo’s surgeon comes in to tout thewonders of youth and good health. Marcelo can go home right now. He just needsto make sure he takes it easy at home for at least 5 days, and come back in 8days to get his stitches (puntadas) removed. While Mili goes to pay, Marceloand Rafaela confab. Rafa will get word to Lucia to go straight to Marcelo’sapartment. She warns him that he can’t keep the engagement a secret from Miliforever. He gives her the bad news that Mili’s coming to stay with them a fewdays. Her being his mother and all, he couldn’t refuse.
Amador desperately rattles the locked doors of Mario’s lawfirm, in search of a lawyer. The street cleaner tells him they’ve all gone toLigia’s funeral in the Civil Cemetery.
Al gets the keys from Tere and goes into Nora’s room. Hefinds her sleeping peacefully, and breathes a sigh of relief as he strokes herarm. When he leaves the room, we see that she’s wide awake. Al next stops isRebeca’s bedroom to try once again to find out what set Nora off. Rebeca claimsit was a silly little argument—nothing really. She’s feeling sorry for herselfand whining about how she’s “lost” Nora, the most important person in her life.Al says they’ll figure it out together, no matter whether or not their marriagehas gone down the crapper. He suggests that Rebeca get her cut checked out by adoctor, since it looks inflamed. She snippily says she’ll drive herself to thehospital, and it won’t be Sara she sees.
At the cemetery, Padre Samuel wraps up the funeral service.Mario introduces himself to Daniela and gives her his condolences and his card,in case she needs anything. She thanks him graciously and leaves. Magda wondersto Mario why Daniela’s name sounds so familiar…Leti’s also curious about Ligia’scousin, who seems so different from Ligia. Sergio explains the police found Dani’scontact info in a note she left for Ligia. Just then, they spot Amador runningup to Mario. They listen in as Amador begs Mario to represent Rod. Mario turnshim down, because it would be a conflict of interest with their Zúñiga vsGaxiola case. He wonders why he doesn’t ask Ricardo for help. Mario and Magdaleave, and Sergio offers his lawyer services to help his friend. He runs offwith Amador, and leaves his car with an open-mouthed Leti.
Lucia consults with Nazario on the list of workers who’veagreed to donate blood, and is about to run off to the hospital when Normitastops her with the good news of Marcelo’s return home. Normita, hussy that sheis, shamelessly flirts with Naz. He runs away quickly. Lucia runs into Lalo onthe way out, and tells him the letter was delivered, but his fair lady gave herno message in return. Said fair lady, brings Nora breakfast and leaves beforeshe is subjected to one of Nora’s tantrums. Nora’s clearly upset to hear thather mother is not home and left a while ago (without saying goodbye to her).
Rebeca is busy at the hospital, getting her hand treated,and running into Marcelo as he’s wheeled out by Rafa. At first, she makes ahalf-hearted attempt at fake politeness. Then, when Marcelo tells her Rafaknows all, she lets her true face show. “It’sa shame you didn’t die!” She once again tells him to leave Puebla andLucia, for good. Marcelo’s heard it all before and is bored. When she threatensto tell Al all, he tells her that nothing would make him happier. This littlesnipe-fest comes to an end when Mili comes down the hallway. Mili and Rebecacompete to see who has the best resting bitch face. Mili wins and Rebeca slinksaway. Mili’s headed home to rest and get some clothes—then she’ll meet up withthem at Marcelo’s.
Magda and Mario stroll towards his office, wondering if Rodcould have really killed Ligia. Magda decides to wait for him in the squarewhile he runs into his office to get some documents. That’s where Ric finds heron his way to see Mario about Zúñiga vs Gaxiola. She tells him to go on hisway, because Mario hasn’t had any time to even look at the offer yet. She knowshe’s just looking for an excuse to see Leti. Ric tries to defend himself. Henever even knew Sara was pregnant. Well, the fact that he was two-timing Sarawith her, and then dumped her on their wedding day for god knows what reason,is plenty of reason for him to be persona non grata around these parts! Ric istired of being the only bad guy in this story. “I’m not the monster that you think!” Ric thinks it’s time for herto know the truth about what happened, even if she doesn’t want to. “It’s time you knew, that the only one atfault is your sister. For Rebeca…for her, I dumped you.” Magda’s listeningnow. Ric spills the whole sordid truth about how Rebeca seduced him, andpromised to run off with him, and he fell into her trap because he always had athing for her and he was stupid. By the time he realized that the only thingshe cared about was preventing him from marrying Madga, it was too late. Magdaweakly says she doesn’t believe him, as a tear rolls down her cheek, but sheclearly does believe that her sister betrayed her in the worst way.
Said sister is in the midst of destroying her daughter’slife, as she tries to make Nora feel guilty about the freakout Rebeca provoked.She tries to manipulate Nora by saying that it’s clear to her that Nora hatesher and she won’t forgive Nora this time. “I’vereached my limit with you.” Nora looks like a wounded little 5-year-old,and with tears in her eyes she tells her mother that she doesn’t need her forgivenessand regrets nothing! But clearly, she does.
Mario comes back to the square and finds Ric instead ofMagda. Ric smugly tells Mario that Magda left on a personal family matter, andrubs it in that he and Magda share a history, where Mario doesn’t even exist. Mario’s ready to break his face if he doesn’tget the hell out of here. Ric points out that they have business to take careof, but Mario inform him he’s been too busy dealing with his secretary’smurder. And oh, by the way, the son of your buddy, Amador was arrested for thecrime and probably needs you!
Both Amador and Sergio try to pretend that they have faithin Sergio’s lawyering skills, as they question the detectives about why Rod wasarrested. They learn Daniela’s testimony about seeing Rod with Ligia that nightis what got him thrown in the pokey. Amador gets to go in to see Rod for 10minutes. Through the bars, he tries to calm his son down, but also fishes forinfo on how Rod started up his fling with Ligia. Rod explains that it was arebound after the Lucia/botched wedding debacle. Amador informs Rod that it wasDani’s testimony that put him there, then he helps Rod craft an alibi. When hetalks to the cops, Rod must tell the cops that he left right after Dani left,around 8:30 pm, and went straight home. Amador will make sure that Brigidabacks up his story.
Mili finds depressed Dani back in their apartment. Shebarely bats an eye when she hears Dani’s cousin was murdered and Lucia’s ex isthe primary suspect. She couldn’t care less. (Me va y me viene.) She shares herbit of gossip about Marcelo getting stabbed and he and Lucia getting backtogether. Is Dani going to run away again, or is she going to stay and fight?
Marcelo and Rafa return to his place, and Lucia’s alreadythere with a dozen red roses for her man. He says a kiss would have beenenough, then tries to get a makeout session started. Lucia puts a stop to that,since he’s not well enough, but Marcelo wants to get as many kisses as possiblein, before his mother shows up. Lucia points out the obvious, that Mili can’tstand her. Marcelo says she can’t stand him either, and he’s her son! Speakingof his mother…she told him that she saw Lucia speaking to a man in the hospital(the hussy!). And it’s not that he’s a possessive jealous jerk, but he justdoesn’t want to get the wrong idea…Lucia tells him about Dr. Andrade, Nora’s psychiatrist,then tells him about Nora’s major freakout the night before.
Hottie Dr. Andrade is meeting with Alonso to discuss thatfreakout. He’s glad Al called him. Al is desperate. Sometimes it seems thatNora is losing her mind, and he doesn’t know how to help her. Roman reminds Althat if Nora doesn’t want help, no one can help her. Al asks Roman to make ahouse call, and perhaps that would help convince her. Al points out that Noradoesn’t trust him or Lucia, and lately has even stopped trusting her mother. “Can I be frank? In the short time that I’vebeen treating Nora, I’ve been able to perceive that her problems are not justher jealousy of her sister, but part of her instability comes from therelationship she has with her mother. In order to help Nora, we also have totreat her mother.” Al is sure Rebeca would agree to it, since Nora is themost important person to her.
Magda enters her sister’s room, and without a word, deliversa LONG overdue slapdown. WOP! Magda’s right had becomes acquainted with Rebeca’sleft cheek. WOP! Left hand, meet right cheek! Right hand and left cheek are aboutto renew their acquaintance, when Rebeca manages to deflect Magda’s palms offury. Magda reveals that Ric spilled the beans. Rebeca claims it"s all LIES. “What would I gain by doing that?!”Magda knows that her sister did it for the simple pleasure of destroying herlife and seeing her unhappy. She doesn’t even let the beyotch touch her. “We are NOTHING to each other! YOU arenothing! You are a piece of crap! The devil herself! And I swear, Rebeca, oneday you will pay dearly for all you’ve done!” Magda marches out, with Rebeca screamingafter her that it’s all lies, and she best not spread it to Al. Nora comes outwondering what all the yelling is about.

Lucia makes Marcelo the Gaxiola recovery meal—a sandwich. Hersammy-making skills look on point—Nora should take lessons…On second thought,we don’t want to give her yet another reason to hate Lucia. Anyway, Luciashares her fears with Marcelo. She thinks that someone targeted him and it wasn’tjust a robbery. Marcelo is a bit too cavalier about the whole thing, and thinksthat Rebeca is the only one who would want to see him out of the way. Luciapoints out that he’s also been a thorn in the side of Amador, who also hasplenty of motive to hurt him. She’s worried that someone will come after himagain. “What, do you think they’ll try tofinish me off (rematarme)?” Lucia doesn’t even want to hear him say it outloud. Marcelo baits an anvil and assures her he won’t let anyone get in the wayof their happiness.
Ric has gone to Casa Zúñiga and gets more details on themurder case from a hysterical and confused Brigida. She usefully supplies Ricwith enough info for him to realize that Amador asked him to provide an alibifor the same night and time as the murder of Mario’s secretary. He assures her he’llhelp get Rod out, but neither of them know where Amador is and why he’s notanswering their calls. Ric starts to leave for the police station, but Brigida wantsto know something first. Was Amador really with him last Wednesday night(murder night)? Ric remembers Amador asking him to lie for him, then he tellsBrigida that she has no reason to doubt her husband’s word.
At the police station, Sergio explains that Rod will be heldin the local jail for 72 hours, while the police gather more evidence and tryto make the case against him. If they gather enough evidence, then Rod will becharged and transferred to prison. If they don’t, then they’ll have to set himfree. This isn’t good enough for Amador. Just because he was in the apartmentthat night, shouldn’t be enough to jail him. Sergio points out that he was thelast to see her alive. All of a sudden, Amador has new info. Rod left rightafter the cousin and went right home. Sergio isn’t quite buying this,especially because Rod lied to him that the last time he saw Ligia was weeksago. He’s not accusing Rod—he’s his friend, and he wants to help and will fight forRod. And if charges are brought against him, Sergio will personally find thebest defense lawyer in the state to represent Rod. Amador can’t even thinkabout that. “That’s not going to happen.We’re going to do everything we can to get him out of here before the 72 hoursis up.”
Leti is blowing up the Casa Gaxiola phone trying to locateLucia to pass on the hot gossip. She leaves a message with Tere. Luckily, Saragets home and she gets to share all the lurid details about Rod getting thrownin the pokey for murdering Mario’s secretary. Sara doesn’t really think it willaffect Lucia too much, since she’s so gaga for Marcelo, who was released fromthe hospital. Leti now has a good idea about where Lucia is.
Lucia is trying to force Marcelo to go take a nap in hisbedroom, but it seems like he’d be more interested in doing other things, as heflirts with Lucia. Is she sure she still wants to marry him? She says she does,but she has a series of conditions. 1- Their wedding has to be very simple.Agreed. 2- They have to wait until after her Tia Magdalena gets married.Marcelo agrees, with some protest. 3- Lucia wants their first daughter to benamed, Adriana, like her mother. Agreed. 4- The most important—Lucia wants themto get the hell out of Puebla right after they get married, and put as muchdistance between them and her Tia Rebeca and her sister as possible.
Marcelo pushes back. He’s made a commitment to her father(to work at the fabrica). Lucia is sure Al will understand. Neither Marcelo norLucia notice that Mili and Dani have entered the apartment, as Marcelo insiststhat he HAS to speak to Al and tell him everything—the reason why he came toPuebla, to search for the woman responsible for his brother committing suicide,and that he committed many mistakes in doing so. Mili marches right into thebedroom and interrupts. Now she knows the reason why he came to this backwardshellhole. She demands to know the woman’s name! She has a right to know!Marcelo and Lucia stare at her in shocked silence. Mili turns her bitch rays towardsLucia, and grabs her shoulder in a death grip. “It’s obvious that you also know who killed my son. Tell me, who killedmy son! TELL ME!”
