La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo: The first season ends

The first season of La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo has come to an end and it was pretty awesome.

The real Estela Carrillo returned after supposedly escaping from El Dorado. Everyone believed her story, except for Milton who found out the truth. Poor Milton didn’t get to tell anyone because Estela took him out. What did Milton know? Estela is El Dorado.

Asdrubal was her right-hand man and lover. He was jealous of Ryan and wanted Estela for himself. Estela though was obsessed with Ryan and double-crossed Asdrubal by sending him to meet Danilo with an unloaded gun. Asdrubal fired his gun at Danilo and, when Danilo saw the gun was empty, he didn’t hesitate to fire and kill Asdrubal.

Laura goes to see Estela and all of the secrets come out. Estela killed her father, Pedro, after he told her the truth about her parents. Estela is Mercy’s missing daughter, which means that Ryan is her brother. I’m sick to my stomach at this moment. Estela is in love with her brother. After Estela goes into hiding, Laura confronts Mercy and Mercy makes Laura promise that she won’t tell Ryan the truth.

Meanwhile, Danilo sold Morgana to El Sagrado. She’s disgusted and upset with Danilo because he keeps lying to her. Morgana asks El Sagrado if she can go see her sister. She goes to a car dealership and asks her sister to keep her guard busy so she can take a car for a test drive and meet Danilo. Her sister agrees and Morgana confronts Danilo who spews more lies. She’s had enough and shoots him.

He looked a bit bulky to me. I thought he had on a bulletproof vest and I was right. After calling Laura and telling her that he’s dying, Laura and Ryan go out to the scene and Danilo’s not there and a bulletproof vest is found. I was thrilled.

We fast forward a year and Laura has had her baby. Furia Productions is now Regia Productions. Leticia is a successful tailor and Chavalin reopened his bakery. Morgana is marrying El Sagrado.

Estela is in an airport, waiting for someone. That someone turns out to be Joe. Mercy thought the jerk had gone back to his wife and family. He didn’t. For some reason, he decided to be with a criminal.

As they get up to board the plane, Danilo appears. Estela feels something is wrong, but she doesn’t see Danilo.

Laura wins the award for Best Album of the year. She gives a great speech and at the end spots someone or something in the crowd. Ryan turns and spots the same thing and it ends. We have to wait until the second season to find out what they saw.

La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo: Laura/Estela is free

After so many episodes of La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo in which Mr. Blake held Laura/Estela and Paloma captive, they are finally free. Asdrúbal went to see Blake and told him that he needed Laura/Estela released. He only agreed to go to Blake after Ryan found the money that Danilo had been laundering and lost. Blake reluctantly let Laura/Estela and Paloma go after a heated conversation with Senator Logan. Basically, Logan reminded Blake that El Dorado knows a lot about Blake and could end his bid for mayor.

Meanwhile, Leticia finally left Tom after talking to his ex-wife, Felicia. She went to the police station and reported Tom. She then went back to the hotel and packed her stuff up. Unfortunately, she wasn’t fast enough because Tom arrived before she could leave and started his usual begging routine. For once, Leticia didn’t listen to him. She walked out the door, leaving him behind. The police showed up and Tom decided to escape out the window. He thought he was home free, but he ran into Danilo who choked him to death for stealing the money. Yes, Tom finally got what he deserved.

In other news, Blake let La Toña go and Morgana helped Tadeo with his music career.

La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo: Ryan knows about Laura’s past

La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo has been full of action. Usually, Danilo is on the bad end of that action. I don’t think I’ve seen an actor take so many beatings in a novela. Danilo constantly has bruises and cuts.

Thankfully, for Danilo’s sake, the writers decided to give Danilo a break and put Ryan in the hospital this time. Ryan was shot in an assassination attempt on Laura/Estela. La Toña tried to have Estela killed and Ryan was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Laura/Estela explained her past to Ryan. She was a prostitute for La Toña and was beaten many times.

She’s afraid Ryan will look at her differently now that he knows the truth. Instead, Ryan only feels anger and wants to get vengeance for both of them.

El Dorado sent a basket to Ryan’s hospital room with a note. He wants Ryan’s shares in Furia and he wants Ryan to break up with Laura/Estela. Laura/Estela finds out later that El Dorado wants her to be with Asdrúbal.

Meanwhile, Danila found Calao hanging from a tree. He paid a visit to El Dorado’s house only to be stopped by Asdrúbal who told Danilo to focus on the money laundering. Danilo is such scum. The only good thing he’s done in recent weeks is rescue Paloma after she was kidnapped. Of course, if it hadn’t been for Danilo’s business dealings, Paloma never would have been kidnapped.

Mr. Blake is still around and he’s trying to find Laura/Estela. He kidnapped La Toña, thinking she would have information about Laura/Estela. He finds out Laura, Estela and Regia are all the same person.

Now for the most aggravating person on the show — Leticia. She is still with Tom, even though he beat up her son, pushed her daughter around, and beat her. Tom only stopped hitting Leticia because she announced that she was pregnant. He was filled with apologies for hitting her. How long do you think he’ll be sorry? My bet is not long.

The police showed up at their house, but Leticia didn’t press charges. Her kids wisely left and moved in with their father. I’m wondering what is planned for Leticia because Tom is so violent that he could kill her.
