Vino el Amor: David and Luciana sacrifice for a whiny 18-year old

grapes-1611089_640I’m back. I haven’t been posting as much as usual because I decided to take some time to get started on a new Lincoln Falls novel and the first story in a brand new series, which I hope to release this year. During my break, I’ve kept up with Vino el Amor and I’m disgusted.

I know the Vino el Amor writers had to separate David and Luciana to keep the storyline going, but to separate them because of Fernanda is ridiculous. Fernanda is an 18-year old, but she acts more like a two-year old.

After Fernanda found out about David and Luciana, she threw a fit and turned to her friends who got her drunk and then gave her pills that were supposed to not make her feel sad. Apparently, none of them have heard that you shouldn’t mix pills and alcohol.

Fernanda took the pills and passed out. David found her and she was rushed to the hospital. She recovered after a stay in a hospital that was far longer than any realistic stay in a hospital. In reality, she would have been discharged the following day. Maybe she got a longer stay because David is friends with César.

Since being home, she’s been seeing Dr. Anderson who has convinced her that she really wanted to commit suicide, not that the overdose was accidental. Of course, Dr. Anderson is being paid by Graciela and is manipulating Fernanda.

Fernanda who is completely self-centered keeps telling David that she can’t be happy if David is with Luciana. I have no idea why because she and Luciana were once friends and you would think she’d care somewhat about her father’s feelings, but Fernanda only cares how she feels.

David thought maybe Fernanda was changing because she didn’t freak out when she caught Luciana and David tasting wine together. He was wrong. Her latest bombshell is that she wants David to find love with Graciela. Yes, the kind aunt who has manipulated her and, by the way, killed her mother. I wonder if Fernanda will love her dear aunt when she finds out that her mother is no longer with them because, in a fit of jealousy, Graciela hit Lisa in the head with a rock and then watched her drown in the river.

David’s mouth fell to the floor after Fernanda’s latest request. I can’t wait to find out what his response is. Even though he and Luciana have been on a break, there’s been lots of smooching. I can’t imagine he’s going to drop Luciana to pursue Graciela because that’s what Fernanda wants. Seriously, Fernanda needs to grow up.

What do you think of the latest on Vino el Amor?

Un Camino Hacia el Destino comes to an end

path-1421693_640Un Camino Hacia el Destino has come to an end and what an ending it was. There was a lot of editing I didn’t care for, but overall I enjoyed the finale.

Let’s start with Luis and Pedro. Luis somehow discovered where Pedro was hiding Pedrito. There was some editing because it wasn’t quite clear how Luis found out.

He took off with Pedrito and Pedro followed. Luis went to some building where a helicopter was supposed to meet him. Pedro chased Luis up the stairs and Luis shot Pedro in the stomach. Pedro miraculously survived, but I’m not sure how because we never saw that.

Luis thought he got away, but the police got a tip and flew the helicopter in to pick up Luis. They dropped him off at the prison and his face was priceless. Fernanda visited Luis in prison and told him that she loved him. She also referred to him as her father. I think, in his own strange way, he truly loved Fernanda and Pedrito.

Later, Diego was arrested at another school where he was already making the moves on another student. We didn’t see what happened to Diego after that, but I assume he went to prison for a very long time.

Much to my dismay, Marissa died. I was hoping Ignacio would marry her before she died, but poor Ignacio was left without a happy ending. I think there was some creative editing involved here as well because we didn’t even get to see Marissa’s funeral. The finale jumped from her death to Fernanda leaving to study violin in Europe.

I also wasn’t happy with Mariana’s end. She was alone in the house, wearing torn pantyhose and drinking wine. She and Hernán never got back together. I’m not sure why the writers chose to keep her rotten to the end. Luis had some sort of redemption so I don’t know why Mariana couldn’t have had the same.

Now, it’s time for the happy endings. This won’t take long. Amelia and Pedro stayed together. Camila ended up with Felipe, which I saw coming since Un Camino started. Fernanda and Carlos finally got married. Fernanda also became the successful violinist she always dreamed of being.

While it was nice to see Carlos and Fernanda get their happy ending, Luis’s redemption was a nice change of pace for a novela finale. At the end of most novelas, the antagonist dies or goes to prison without feeling any remorse. Watching Luis as he cried with pride over Fernanda’s performance was touching. He was paying for his mistakes, but he finally realized how lucky he was to have Fernanda.

What did you think of the finale?

Un Camino Hacia el Destino: Things heat up!

Un Camino Hacia el Destino is now in its final episodes and things are heating up. Someone shot Luis and, while he was in the hospital, he finally figured out that Fer is his daughter and that her son is his grandson. Surprise, surprise, Fer wanted nothing to do with him.

Carlos was accused of trying to kill Luis and was on trial when Leo came forward and admitted he tried to kill Luis. Leo made a bunch of accusations, including that Luis tried to kill Marissa and that he committed bank fraud, which resulted in an investigation. The bank records were found and Luis went to prison for fraud.

Obsessed with Fer, Luis schemed to escape from prison. He set fire to the kitchen and escaped over the wall amid the chaos.

What was Luis’s grand plan for getting Fer to accept him as her father? He kidnapped her son and then told Fer that if she didn’t go with him, she’d never see her son again. Sadly, Fer, who is falling into the too stupid to live category, agrees to go with Luis. She could have set up a plan to deceive Luis and save her son. But that’s not what she did.

Instead, after meeting with Luis, she went home and told her parents how awful they were and told Carlos that she didn’t want anything to do with him because of what happened with Isabela. She then grabbed her meager belongings and met Luis on the road.

I guess now they are going to be a family on the run. I’m wondering how long it will take for Carlos and her family to figure out what happened. How much crying will I be subjected to before Fer and Pedrito are saved?

Do you think Fer did the right thing?

Un Camino Hacia el Destino: Luis gets off again, Diego is a psycho, and Amelia and Pedro are in love

I really can’t wait for Luis to get it on Un Camino. I’m sick and tired of watching him get away with everything.

He hit Fernanda with his car and managed to turn it around and bring criminal charges against her. He tried to kill Carlos and was let go on his own recognizance. No further charges were brought against him.

Now, I had to watch a judge declare Luis innocent of attempting to murder Marissa. Nothing sticks to the man. Of course, in this case, he had help from Isabela, who claims to love Carlos but does everything she can to hurt him.

Isabela lied on the stand. She knew Luis took Marissa to the spa hoping to rush the muscular dystrophy along so Marissa would die and he’d get all of Marissa’s money.

For the judge, Isabela’s lies were more believable than Leo’s truthful testimony. He testified to Luis’s true intentions that he planned to kill Marissa and take over the bank.

When the judge announced his ruling, I wanted to wipe that smug expression off of his face. He’s the bad guy, which means he’s going to either die or end up in prison. I’m just wondering which one it will be and what will finally take him down.

Speaking of being taken down, when will the police find Diego? I have to say this is one storyline I didn’t see coming. Diego is a psycho.

Apparently, he stalks young girls, makes them fall in love with him, marries them, and then locks them up so they can’t leave him. The writers showed no indication of this when Diego was introduced. He didn’t seem sinister at all. Now that we are in the final weeks, Diego’s psychotic behavior has come out.

I hope they find Lucero before she either starves to death or Diego finds another way to kill her.

In happier news, not only have Fernanda and Carlos reconciled, but Amelia and Pedro are together. It took 20 years of hate on Amelia’s part and divorce, but somehow Amelia fell in love with Pedro and he was able to forgive Amelia for all of the years of misery she caused.

Did you see the Diego storyline coming? What do you think of Pedro and Amelia’s reunion?

Un Camino Hacia el Destino: Mariana is a witch

Last week, I discussed Amelia so it’s only fitting that this week I would discuss her sister, Mariana.

Mariana is a miserable human being. She was much happier before Amelia returned. She was waiting for Don Fernando to die so she could inherit everything.

Amelia’s return changed that. Not only does Mariana have to share the inheritance with Amelia, but she has to share it with Fer too because she is Don Fernando’s granddaughter.

Mariana tried to kill Amelia and Fer in a car accident, but that didn’t work. She then tried to kill Fer and Pedro by burning down their house. Again, she was unsuccessful.

But Mariana remains undeterred. To make sure she gets everything, Mariana had Louis the scumbag write a new will in which Amelia and Fer get nothing and tricked Don Fernando into signing it. Mariana also tried to rush Don Fernando’s death by switching his pills and giving him too many. Luckily for Don Fernando, he only got sick and didn’t die.

Now, Mariana has convinced Camila to lie and say Fer committed fraud and switched Don Fernando’s medication. Poor Fer is now on trial for fraud and neglect thanks to Louis the scumbag and Mariana.

While I don’t know what will happen to Fer, I know Mariana is doomed. Bad guys in novelas always end up dead or in prison by the end. With it being mid-June, Mariana’s fall should be coming soon and I’m going to enjoy every minute of it.

What do you think of Mariana’s latest scheme?

Un Camino Hacia el Destino: Amelia is repentant

On Un Camino Hacia el Destino, I’ve watched Amelia treat Pedro and Fernanda awful. She missed Fer’s graduation because she said she had too much work to do. When she was in the car accident and couldn’t walk, she told Pedro and Fer that they were dead to her.

She left both of them and moved back into her childhood home without telling Fer or Pedro where she was going. Fer discovered where Amelia was only because she started working for Don Fernando and ran into Amelia at the house.

Now, Amelia is sorry for everything she’s ever said and done. When did Amelia change? When she thought Pedro and Fernanda died in the fire that destroyed their house. After that, she suddenly was sorry for how she had treated Pedro and Fer.

When she discovered Fer was alive, Amelia tried talking to Fer. She apologized and asked Fer to forgive her. Not surprisingly, Fer has told Amelia on more than one occasion that she wants nothing to do with Amelia or her family.

Amelia then went to visit Pedro at the clinic and was upset when Pedro wouldn’t see her. Apparently, after pining away for Louis, she’s figured out that he’s a scumbag and Pedro is the best man she’s ever known.

On just about every episode, she cries over losing Pedro and Fer. Too bad she didn’t realize what she had for all those years. She’s going to need a miracle for Pedro and Fer to forgive her. Frankly, Amelia deserves everything she’s getting. I know the writers are trying to redeem her, which means at some point she will be forgiven, but I’m enjoying watching her be tortured for now.

When Pedro forgives Amelia, I hope he doesn’t take her back. I’d much rather see Pedro end up with Marissa if she ever gets away from Louis the scumbag.

What do you think of Amelia’s redemption?

Un Camino Hacia El Destino: Love is in the air, not

scribble-heartOh, if only love really was in the air on Un Camino Hacia El Destino, but it’s not. No one is happy, not even the hero and heroine – Carlos and Fernanda – and that’s a good thing. They declared their love for each other far too early. I’m glad the writers had Fernanda call it quits. With all of the other absurd moments on Un Camino, Fernanda telling Carlos that she was done with all of his explanations was realistic.

Since she started dating Carlos, Fernanda has had to deal with crazy Isabela and Camila. Both want Carlos, even though he doesn’t want them and because he’s a bit wimpy, he’s had to explain himself out of more situations than I can count, including Isabela’s fake pregnancy.Why didn’t he tell Fernanda what Isabela was up to? Instead, Isabela told Fernanda that she was pregnant, even though it wasn’t true. Had Carlos told Fernanda what was going on, Fernanda would have been prepared and would have known it was a lie. Instead, she was stuck listening to one of Carlos’s many explanations again, which she didn’t want to hear.

While Carlos has told Camila to lay off, he hasn’t been forceful enough. Even when he went to Cabo San Lucas to surprise Fernanda, Camila managed to be all over him and that was in front of Fernanda. Why he allowed that to happen is beyond me? Until he stops being a wimp, Fernanda needs to stand her ground and tell Carlos to leave her alone.

At this point, I’d even welcome another love interest for Fernanda to make Carlos jealous and I don’t mean Felipe. He’s awful and belongs with Camila so they can be awful together.

Should the writers introduce another love interest? What do you think of Carlos?
