What's up, guys?
Let's get to it.
Aparicio Central. Day.
The playdate at the Aparicio house continues.
The girls feign being hurt when Betito wants Armando's autograph, but not theirs. Armando tries to cheer them up, but Rafela comes and calls him away. I honestly don't know what excuse she used, but I'm guessing she wants to see him as far away from Julia as possible.
Sometimes I wish he would go away and take Julia with him. I might like him better than Julia, but I like Mariana better than all of them. She should be far away from their craziness.
When he's gone, Mariana starts itching for no reason.
She says it was the grass, but I kinda wish that she's become allergic to Julia.
The conversation turns to children again. Julia wants to know if Mariana wants to have a child for real. She does. Julia then wants to know more about it: when did she decide it, how did she decide it, when she wants the children...
Mariana: Right now, right now in this moment. Take me on the grass, impregnate me!
Orale. Well, that would be something to behold. Is Julia gonna grow a temporary penis to get you pregnant? I ask because it wouldn't surprise me, there's probably something like that in her black magic books.
Hey, after that V thing, everything is possible in this show.
Julia shushes her, the children might hear! Then Mariana gets serious. When she was growing up, the getting-married-to-a-man-and-having-his children thing didn't really sit well with her. Then, when grew up and realized that she was gay, having that didn't seem like a possibility, so it was like the decision was made for her. But Miguel's situation has made her realize that things have changed and she can have that. After all she has a vagina and uterus and all the equipment necessary.
Cool, but, with Julia? Seriously? Do you really want your children to be THAT messed up?
The girls continue to look cute together.
I want to like them together, I do. But Julia still scares me.
Armando's Cave. Night.
Darmando update: Armando is still in love with Julia, Dani is his rebound girl.
Oy. It will never end, will it?
Mariana's Loft. Night.
Miguel is freaking out after his meeting with his mother in law, who came with an order from a judge giving her temporary custody of the kid. He doesn't know if he should stay and go through the nasty fight and possibly lose anyway, or if he should just take the kid and disappear.
Su caudal de penas no tiene fin.
je, je. I like that line.
The girls try to reassure him that Meche is really good at what she does and has fought, and won, against people more powerful than his mother in law.
Are these two married already? That looks really domestic.
Then the conversation turns to the fucking homophobia again.
Miguel is really hurt that anyone could think that he would hurt his son just because he's gay. Thankfully, the kid walks in complaining that he can't sleep and spares me from more preaching.
The next morning, the girls continue stretching their mommy muscles by asking Beto what he wants for breakfast.
..in fake french, might I add. No, in a french accent. Eren is really good at accents, by the way.
The kid wants hotcakes and eggs and the entire refrigerator, plus chocolate ice cream.
Since they don't have half of what the kid wants, including the chocolate ice cream (you're going to get it for him? for breakfast? Your future kids will be diabetic if you think that this is okay, gueys), Mariana and Julia leave for the store. When they come back, Miguel and Beto are gone.
Tonight I leave you with...
....the curly hairdo! Because they all go to the same beauty salon!
Meche's Office. Day.
Everyone is freaking out because Miguel is gone.
Mariana is very concerned because she's afraid that he's done something stupid (like leaving Mexico). She wants to shake the hell out of him to make him be reasonable.
I can relate to that, Mariana. I've felt that way about you many, many, many times.
Julia tries to reassure her that he's going to be fine, and at that moment Miguel walks in, sans Beto.
After much thought, Miguel decided that it was best for Beto to be with his grandmother since it was unrealistic to think that he could take care of him by himself in some foreign country. He also wants to spare the kid a nasty trial. When Claudio and Meche keep trying to convince him to keep fighting, he says that he doesn't know if they're crazy or naive if they think they can win against his mother in law.
Julia: No, they're crazy. I know.
Listen to her, Miguel. If anyone knows crazy, it's Julia.
Miguel decides to fight.
Mariana's loft. Night.
Miguel's moping around hoping that Beto isn't missing him and feeling as miserable as he does.
I hope that Beto's not as miserable as I am recapping this endless storyline. Does anyone doubt for a second that the kid will stay with Miguel? Why drag it out so much? ZZzzzz
They offer him some tea to help him sleep, but his mother in law calls him away: Beto won't sleep if Miguel doesn't tell him the magic words.
Later that night, Julia and Mariana are by themselves, talking.
Mariana is wearing the weirdest, goldenest thing EVER over her breasts, I'm even not sure if it can be called a bra.
What the hell is that, woman?
Mariana's worried about Miguel. I can't wait for him to go away already so that the girls can talk about something other than him.
Julia reassures her that he's fine and changes the topic to the other one that has taken over their mouths: children.
Julia: You know what I think? That when you're a mom, you're going to be an incredible mom.
I agree, Jules. But if you're the kid's other mom, well, you're going to cancel out all of Mariana's awesomeness and the kid will be insane like you. I at least hope that Mariana's the birth mom, because if the kid has your genes too....poor kid.
I'm so uninspired, gueys, even ripping on Julia doesn't feel as good as it used to. I'm glad there are only 10 eps left, I'm really burned out on the recapping.
Julia: And ever since we first talked out it, that you wanted to be a mom and all, I haven't been able to stop thinking about some things. Mariana: Don't tell me you're already picking out names, because then, I'm scared.
But, that's not it. Julia's just a little sad that, regardless of how much they love each other, they will never be able to create life together.
Mariana admits that the thought makes her sad too, and they proceed to have sad sex.
Aww. Hugs. Well, you never know. I still think that Julia's black magic is very powerful, look at all it has accomplished. Maybe the sad sex will get you pregnant, Emo.
Kudos to the Aparicio team for giving us so much Juliana sex, others would've shied away from it. I may have many criticisms about the show, but I've always admired their bravery.
Tonight I leave you with.....
....super Meche! Because she believes in JUSTICE!
I'm really sorry if these last recaps have been unfunny, but these last few episodes have just been uninspiring to me. At least you can stay updated.
