Oh, Give Me a Break!

How many times have you used the above statement at the point of frustration? Well, better be careful next time, because it is a prophetically potent statement. When Carlos Eduardo made that statement at the height of Jennifer's nagging at the restaurant where they both went to eat, those words went like a piercing sword, and cut asunder the remnant of toleration, called 'relationship' between them. Carlos stood up and walked away, abandoning her and the food.

Jenny was shocked and sad at the same time. Luisa Fernanda has become a testy issue between them because of Jenny overreaching herself in hitting L.F with a hot jealous slap. That slap has now broken the cord of toleration of Jennifer's doubled-faced and mischievous activities. Carlos would pack out of her apartment, signifying the end of their relationship. This act would turn Jenny into emotional shipwreck and she would attempt to end her life.

I wish I could tell Marissa too, to give me a break from her folly. She testified in court that L.A truly saved her while she was drowning in the swimming pool. What she ought to have said was that she drowned and lost consciousness, and when she was revived, she saw the swimming attendant and L.A. She could not say he saved her. Her testimony weakened the charges of homicide against her and also nullified Leopoldo's testimony.

What this drama taught me was that Marissa was pathetically weak to the point of having been made to believe a lie for 20 years of marriage to L.A. When the time now arose to confront this lie, called Luis Alejandro, she was unable to purge herself from the permeating poison of 2 decades.

AIT relentlessly continued to violate and diminish our entertainment values. As it is usual with the TV station, they aborted the last epic minutes of the soap opera for the umpteenth time tonight. This acts breaks the flow of the telenovela, particularly when the next episode they transmit usually does not continue from the point of abortion. Too bad and too poor. Thumbs down for AIT.

How could Marissa have made it to the top as the President of a bank. She's so dumb! I have not seen anything to suggest the contrary. Luis Alejandro and Jennifer get kicks out of manipulating her because they know she's an easy target. Luis Alejandro knew that putting Marissa on the stand would assure him victory and true to type Marissa proved him right. How clever of him!!!
