Episode 6: The Worst Humiliation Date

The insane things a woman can do because of love! Amelia, for me, is the major subject of this episode. I was very hurt as a woman for the high-level treachery and ingratitude of Amelia to Pedro Perez. Her bitterness towards the poverty of Pedro makes her never to love him.
Amelia went to borrow a better dress from Lupe- her only friend, telling her she has a date with the only man she ever and would ever love. Lupe was surprised and asked her what of her husband Pedro. Amelia confided in Lupe that she only married him for convinience of accomodation at the church premisces after her father threw her out for being pregnant. She said that Pedro is not the father of Luisa and the real father of Luisa is the man she is now dating. She succeeded in decieving Pedro that morning of court appearance and she left home with Luisa purportedly for the 'hospital'.

Carlos overslept at Jennifer's house and had to rush out late to join Augusto and Luisa in the court. Jennifer was not happy that her man is involved in a case with Luisa. You can see uncertainty and fear of loosing Carlos to Luisa, written on her face.

On arrival at the court, Amelia told the young lawyer that she would take charge of the negotiation with L.A. (brevity for Luis Alejandro). When L.A. arrived Amelia confronted him and annouced to him that: "we need to talk in private." "Who are you?" replied L.A. Amelia was stunned...she asked him, "you mean you don't know me?" Alejandro replied "I don't know you, and I have never met you in my life." He walked past her and went to inside the court-room. Amelia almost collapsed with shame and astonishment. That Luis Alejandro could not remember or recognise her again after 18 years, was too much of a pain that she almost ran into a speeding car while floundering around in utter disbelief and shock. Luisa approached her to ask her the reason for her weeping, the burden was too much for her to explain the deep mystery to her daughter. She was too ashamed and uposet to return home, else Pedro might get suspicious, so she went to her friend's Lupe's office.

Luisa lambasted Carlos at the court premises for not telling his father to withdraw the case and called him a liar.

Don Elcantara suffered a sudden heart-attack and Carlos was called in for the emergency, he came immediately and treated Don- Amelia's enstranged father. The old man seem to have taken a liken to Dr. Carlos, he promised him that he would obey and take his medications as recommended by Carlos. As soon as Carlos left, Consuela rushed after him, wanting to explain the embarassing and amorous circumstances carlos found her with his step-father- Luis Alejandro yesterday. Carlos snubbed her by telling her: "I am not interested in your explanation, goodbye." and he walked away.

Luis Alejandro lost the first round of the case in court. The court ruled that it has the jurisdiction to hear the matter and gave a date for the next hearing. This was good news to the young shark- Augusto, this was his first case after graduating from law school, and against a wealthy popular giant attorney of L.A.'s stature and status for that matter, this, indeed is a great victory.

Alejandro came out angry and boiling out of the court-room to threaten Augusto and Luisa that he would not rest until they are destroyed. He even called Augusto a thief who wants to use legal means to take money from him.

L.A. later told Marissa his wife that he is going to investigate Luisa Fernanda's family and background in order to have evidence to destroy them in court.
