Dueling Scenes to Rehash Last Week’s Drama With Mari
In the first corner, weighing in at… well you get the idea. Doris and Oscar meet at a tea shop to discuss the situation with Mari at his ¡Que Madrazo! party. In her version, it was Yom Kippur and she was just trying to make a new beginning with Mari. Oscar agrees with Doris.
Mari tells Fernando that Doris said that Adan had no talent and needs to consider other career options. Well, that is not really what she said. She said Adan needs a lot of vocal instruction. Or she thinks he could be a great actor. Fernando says Adan needs to have a talk with Doris. Adan is at the house! I thought he left that night! When they tell him a negative interpretation of what Doris said, he says he wants to speak with Doris himself. That’s great. Then he says he wants both of them there. That’s a problem. Adan is suddenly speaking up for himself. And it is at this point that Fernando throws him out of the house. YAY! Fly from the nest, Adan! Fernando says he is not Adan’s personal manager anymore. Perfecto!
La Familia Bessudo
Raquel and Doris Bessudo work out together and chat about her perpetua creams. She’s going to market them herself. She is going to have a huge launch event. Doris thinks Mari and Fernando could use a strong face cream.
La Familia Allende
The runaway boy had run straight to his brother’s apartment. Elan and Jenny know something big is going on because he’s never come to their apartment. He tells them the whole story about being thrown out of the house. Jenni and Elan totally support him. They talk about how Fernando overshadows every event they have. They support him going out on his own. Then mommy calls. He was supposed to go with her to some event. She tries to guilt him into coming. When he resists, she replies, “I understand that getting laid is more important.” He hangs up on her.
Elan and Adan call Jesus to ask him to bring Elan a suit for the gala. He checks with Fernando and he tells him he cannot do that. If Elan wants something, he has to come and get it. Wow. That’s so petty. Elan tells Adan not to go over there. He can just wear the clothes he wore yesterday.
Doris Meets With Her Friend To Talk About Sam
Doris’s friend Patty has a sculpture type thing that says PUTA! That’s a bad word, right? Patty thinks that Sam is a great match for Raquel. Patty dated Sam for a few months a long time ago. She explains that her father was terminally ill for five years before he passed. So her mom has been grieving and been alone for a long time. By the time Doris comes around to Sam. Her mother let’s her know she’s not interested in being more than friends with him.
The Runaway Boy Finds A New Home
Adan has settled into his brother’s apartment quite nicely. He’s underwhelmed by the accommodations. However, he is thrilled that Maria Paz is now his roommate.
Meanwhile, Adan’s mommy has taken to the bed. She’s ever so distraught her son who is nearly thirty years old has been gone for almost 48 hours? However will she go on? She’s still crying. She says that Adan treated her with the same lack of respect that Doris treated her with at the Madrazo’s party. She’s right. They both treated her with ZERO disrespect. But Mari convinces Fernando that Doris is wicked. So they are not going to Raquel’s event. YAY! We can finally have an event that is not all about Fernando!
These two have turned their evening into a giant pity party. They are plotting revenge on Adan. Fernando wants to cancel his performance at some big concert he has. Mari agrees. He needs to learn a lesson.
Raquel’s launch event for her Perpetua anti-aging creams is held in a stunning Porfirian palace in the historic district of Mexico City. It’s very Parisian in style and has a Jewish heritage with writings in Yiddish.
Suddenly, we are in a talking head with Oscar and Paulina. Oscar shares that he thinks the secret ingredient in Raquel’s creams is donkey sperm. See, when he was young he and his friends would go see a Mexican prostitute and when they didn’t have money they would steal things from their house to give her. Anyway, it was this prostitute who told him about the anti-aging powers of donkey sperm. I imagine donkey sperm has lots of protein and would probably be a very beneficial ingredient.
Everyone who is anyone in Mexico City is at this launch event. Well, except for Mari and Fernando. Which is a great blessing. When Doris talks to Adan, he tells her that he is moving out of the house and he is not going to work with his mom anymore. This is great news. However I don’t think he will do it and neither does Doris. But he is out having the time of his life with Maria Paz without his parents there to decide when he has to go home. He and Maria share their first kiss on the balcony of the palace.
The Prodigal Son Returns
Adan met with his father to tell him that he is moving out and he is not going to do the concert with him. Then he met with Mari separately. Mari is playing the victim and Adan totally calls her out on it. It’s like he’s gone from a teenager to a grown man in four days. Mari says he is making a big mistake. She also says it is time for her to let him fall down. Normally, this happens when a child is around two. But hey, better 25 years late than never, Mari. Mari has a breakdown over how much she will miss him. Adan says it’s not easy.
Just when you think that Mari was going to put her big girl panties on and be the grown up, she freaks out when he tells her he is not doing the concert. She repeatedly calls him stupid. She laughs at him. And that is where they leave us hanging.

Next week, Oscar introduces Tarek to his kids! He’s moving very fast! Maria Paz goes back home. Did Mari cast a dark spell on Adan? Fernando does his big concert. Will his sons take the stage?
