Monday: We start with that touching scene of Catalina and Cristóbal touching fingers. Are they ever going to have sex? Is she ever going to call him "tu" ?? Lots of good words tonight...
The sound effects guy was having an off day. Even though we had many moments one would think of as dramatic, there were far fewer cymbal crashes than usual. This caused me almost not to notice the plot was progressing. Or maybe the cymbal guys were striking for higher pay this week?
Juana was napping with Rafael when Hipólita comes to talk. Juana tells the maid to keep the boy quiet. No problem, quiet is all he ever is. We had two previous theories - that he was drugged and that he was actually a stuffed boy. My new theory is: he has been debarked (we have dogs like that in our neighborhood). When Juana tells Hipólita she looks "pallid" I grow 100% certain that she's pregnant. How come she hasn't figured it out? When she lost her memory did she also forget where babies come from?
