Vino el Amor: Somehow David and Luciana found love

The finale of Vino el Amor was meant to be two hours, but Univision, once again, decided to show the first hour on Friday, making Monday’s episode dull.

I’ll start with the exciting stuff first. Juan confronted Graciela on the day of the wedding about Perla’s death. Lilian found Juan in Graciela’s room and wanted to know what was going on. Juan told Lilian that Graciela killed Lisa and Perla. Lilian finally realized that she raised a monster after Graciela admitted to killing Lisa because she hated Lilian for always favoring Lisa and, of course, David should have been hers.

Fernanda heard the confession and didn’t take it well. She couldn’t believe what a fool she’d been. Well, neither could the rest of us. Fernanda took off to tell Bobby, and Graciela and Lilian continued to argue. They ended up on the stairs and Lilian pushed Graciela down the stairs and killed her. Graciela was such an awful human being that Lilian could have lied and said Graciela tripped over the dress and fell. No one probably would have questioned it. But Lilian decided to tell the truth. She told David that she couldn’t allow Graciela to marry him so she killed her. David is visibly disgusted by Lilian and Graciela.

While Graciela and Lilian were fighting, David and Juan were fighting and Juan told David everything. He also shot David in the arm before he was arrested.

In hour two, everyone was crying. David was on the floor holding a picture of Lisa and crying about how he blew it with Luciana. He noticed the door knob moving and Luciana walked in. After everything that had happened, David had the nerve to make his plea right then. He told Luciana that he never stopped loving her. Thankfully, Luciana didn’t jump into his arms. She told him everyone needed time to recover from what they had gone through.

Juan and Lilian ended up in prison. Juan was charged with Gutiérrez’s murder and the other inmates made sure he paid for what he did to the immigrants. Lilian had no defense because she admitted to killing Graciela.

There was a montage that showed everyone moving on with their lives, which included Fernanda going to college, Sonia’s book signing, and the opening of a new restaurant. Then, Sonia and León got married. While at the wedding, David made his move again. Luciana didn’t act on it. However, I felt like I was watching an episode of The Bachelorette when she sat on the porch later and reminisced about Miguel and David.

Later, David and Luciana were inexplicably together. They ate breakfast with his children and Marta sat where Lilian used to. They then walked the vineyard and drank their new wine.

I’m glad Luciana and David finally got together because that’s what I was expecting. I wish, however, that the writers didn’t go as far as having David decide to marry Graciela for the sake of his children. They also didn’t do a good job of redeeming him after committing to that storyline. If Juan hadn’t shown up on the wedding day, David would have gone through with the wedding, even though he didn’t love Graciela. I don’t understand how Luciana forgave him and never stopped loving him. Only in a novela, I guess.

I’m also upset that Miguel didn’t end up with anyone. Maybe eventually he’ll fall for Carito. It would have been nice to see some sort of happy ending for Miguel.

What did you think of the finale?

Vino el Amor: David falls for a monster

grapes-1611089_640I’ve been watching Vino el Amor for months and never thought I’d see the day that David would choose to be with a monster like Graciela. With only about three weeks to go, I’m baffled by what the writers could be thinking. How are David and Luciana going to end up together? We haven’t seen much of David and Luciana together as it is. Are we going to be left with them inexplicably together in the last episode?

I wish David had listened to Juan. He tried to warn David about Graciela and I thought Juan’s warning would be enough to break them up. Unfortunately, David isn’t bright and, even though Graciela squirmed after the confrontation with Juan, David decided to believe Graciela’s story that she had no idea what Juan was talking about. Yes, Juan is evil and I realize he was only trying to crush David by ruining David’s relationship with Graciela, but Juan actually was doing David a favor.

I’m also still disgusted by Fernanda. She’s so easily manipulated. Now, she’s going to ask David if he’s thought about marrying Graciela after Lilian put it in Fernanda’s head. If that’s not bad enough, the previews made me vomit in my mouth as David admitted that he had thought about marrying the witch. I don’t know how David can be redeemed and I’ve already lost all respect for him. It didn’t take long for Graciela to turn his head once he broke up with Luciana for the sake of his children. If he marries Graciela, I don’t see how he and Luciana can realistically end up together with the time left.

The alternative ending, which I’ve been trying not to give too much thought to, is David ends up with no one once he finds out that Graciela killed Lisa and Luciana falls for Miguel. He’s newly single now that Erika died as a result of the chemicals used to kill the plague started by the contaminated roses Juan planted close to the vineyard. It’s possible that Luciana and Miguel could find love, but that would make me completely unhappy after being sold on a David and Luciana love story.

How do you think Vino el Amor will end?
