Telenovela Alborada, #35
If you are new, please visit the recaps in ORDER - they are listed to the right under a picture of Doña Juana and Modesta. See the bottom of this post for more information.
FRIENDS: the current plan is to migrate the telenovela adventure to http://caraycaray.blogspot.com starting with Jean's recap of the Cristina show appearances of the Alborada cast. We are going to pick up with Barrera de Amor, the new 9:00 novela, midstream. I have already posted the synopsis and the cast of characters, with commentary and pictures. There will be one more recap here, of the Friday finale, and then - we're off! But please come back here to Pratie Place to visit, anyway, OK?
Wednesday: To judge by the comments, an awful lot of you are obsessed with the possibility of seeing Luis without his shirt on again. I have to say, I think the chances are slight, so don't erase those old beefcake episodes from your Tivos...
Speaking of beefcake, the Wednesday episode opens with a splendid procession of lots of good-looking guys on horses galloping through the dust. It is Team Luis, back from witness-gathering operations in Valverde (where Old Dude Epifanio was picked up) and Monforte (where they collected Sara, aka La Poderosa).
There is a large tree, just the one, by the side of the road, and it has ten bandits craftily concealed in it. They are like my squirrels, who feel similarly well hidden when they are on a tree-trunk.
