Muderous Monster On The Loose

I urge all of us telenovela readers, to profusely thank and pray for Tessie from Kenya, who has immensely blessed us with this powerful recaps of El Cuerpo del Deseo, (Second Chance) telenovela. My husband has also promised (as a gesture of appreciation, to send the full course brochure of the BLOGGING FOR MONEY Workshop/Seminar [worth about $100 worth] to Tessie, to prepare and launch her into a successful blogging career).

He said: "...Blogging is like Mathematics... you will never get it right unless you apply the formula. What I am giving Tessie is the formula with which she could easily apply, in diligently working to get the correct answer that shatters the blanket of web mediocrity. This is what all the so-called gurus lack, and are seeking for, and would never get because of their pride".

Back to El Cuerpo del Deseo recaps:

We are left been shown Andre, all alone again (and depending on the translated version you are watching a new background music that consists of a choir). This music continues as Andre goes back to the bedroom and picks up a mobile phone from the drawer and calls his assassination group to shoot and kill Salvador. He then rummages through the bedroom throwing things around until he finds the poison (just like the one that Isabel was using to kill Pedro).

Meanwhile, Valeria started practicing her piano without knowing that Andre was still inside the house. This made Andre to become crazier and he went to Valeria’s bedroom, and argued with Valeria and he told Valeria that she owed him. Saying this he threw her on her bed and started to force her to him, as if he wanted to rape her. Valeria called for help, to Vicky and Abigail who came and rescued her before things got worse. Andre left Valeria, and Valeria begged Vicky and Abigail not to tell Isabel (which proved later to be a costly mistake).

Meanwhile, Isabel was attending the Company meeting, where Andre was being accused of mismanagement, and Isabel (foolishly) defended her husband, trying to convince the directors (including Salvador and Angela), that Andre was not guilty of the various company problems. The directors wanted his attendance at the meeting, but Isabel told them that Andre was not able to attend the meeting because he was feeling unwell and not because he was a coward.

Later in the evening, Salvador had declined to watch a show with Antonio, Simon and Angela and decided to go home early with Lupe’s boyfriend, Camilo, who usually picked him up. Simon and Angela started discussing about Salvador and how he was a mystery to everyone and how no one knew where he lived. Antonio told them not to worry because if they ever had an emergency he knew where to get Salvador. He however declined to tell them where he lived, as he believed that was for Salvador to tell them himself.

Meanwhile, back in the house when Isabel got back to the house she met Andre in the sitting room. Andre offered her a drink, and she accepted. Andre asked her about work, and she discussed about how she tried to defend him (obviously he doubted she had defend him in the company). Meanwhile Andre slipped a large potion of the poison in the bottle; however Rebeca came and asked Andre for a drink (after she had finished complaining how bad her day was). I think Andre refused or acted strangely because the next scene showed Rebeca looking confused with no drink and Isabel going to the bedroom and finding it messed up (when Andre had thrown things around). This was when Andre asked if she was looking for the poison (he showed her the bottle) and he confessed he had taken it, and Isabel knew Andre had tried to poison her.

Meanwhile while Salvador and Lupe’s boyfriend Camilo were driving home, Salvador saw that a car had been following them since he (Salvador) had entered the car. He told Camilo to divert the car to another lane so as to loose the car following them. However the lane ended up in a dead end and soon the car trailing them reached them. Salvador saw about two or three men getting out with guns and advised Camilo to lower his head onto his knees. The three men continued shooting for several minutes until the police came, and then they hurriedly drove away leaving the car utterly destroyed.

The next scene showed an Ambulance carrying out a stretcher to carry out an injured person. Andre was shown on the next scene receiving a phone call from the leader of the assassination group to inform him that they had done the work; Andre said he would believe it once he heard that Salvador was in the hospital or that he was dead. The ring leader of the assassination group went to visit Andre on the driveway to ask for payment.

Andre told them again that he would only pay them when he heard Salvador was dead. The ring-leader told him that their jobs were always successful. Doesn’t he remember the other time, they had carried their job well (we are assuming they are obviously referring to the murder of Angela’s lawyer). Andre stuck to his opinion to pay them afterwards.

More Love, More Trouble

In another episode of the telenovela, El Cuerpo del Deseo (second chance), Andre punched Simon in the stomach while he (Simon) and Salvador were outside the house washing the car. However, Salvador defended him and thoroughly beat up Andre easily. The moves were of that of an experienced fighter and they even enhanced some of Salvador¢s moves in a bit of a slow-motion to show the effects! (This is an episode not to miss).

Harrietta pressurized Isabel to tell her who really was her lover. Didn't she (Isabel) trust her? Isabel declined (which was a wise decision), to tell Harrietta. However one day, Harrietta missed her flight and had to go back to her apartment where she saw Isabel with an unknown man (Salvador). She promised Isabel that she would not tell her husband.

Salvador told Isabel that she should be much more careful after they were caught. As he told Gaetana, he was worried about Isabel (I think he feared what Andre would do if he found out). Isabel went home early that day and as she slept, Andre went into her room and confessed to her that he loved her the same as always, as in the beginning... as he was about to leave her room he corrected himself and told her that what he said was a lie, he did not love her as in the beginning, he loved her even more and more each day.

Ambitious Harrietta invited herself to Isabel's house, to ask her (Isabel) to inform her of her lover's name. Isabel declined and told her she (Harrietta) would probably never meet him again. As soon as the words escaped her mouth, Salvador drove in the driveway. Angela saw him and greeted him and called him by his name as he guided her into the car. Harrietta looked triumphantly at Isabel. She now knew his first name. Isabel asked her not to mock her and provided her with the rest of the information. His name was Salvador Sorenza and he worked at the company.

Harrietta was exited!! As soon as she got home she called Andre and asked him to meet her. Andre made some excuse about wanting to see a lawyer. Harrietta told him he better comes to see her as she had some information about Isabel's lover. Andre came in record time and demanded for Harrietta to give him the information. Harrietta told Andre that the night she missed her flight, she found Isabel in bed with her lover. She poured a glass of Champaign for her self, but Andre took it and threw (smashed) it away. He asked her not to lie to him as he would never forgive her. She confirmed that she was not lying as the man worked very close to him in the company and his name was Salvador Sorenza...

Andre saw black due to anger... He was FURIOUS and MAD at Isabel and Salvador!! Andre started saying that it was Isabel who helped Salvador get a job in the company that was why he knew so much! He even confided in Harrietta that the reason he had shot Salvador was because he had suspected of him of wanting Isabel. He told her that he should have shot him twice the night he shot him! Harrietta was surprised! She told Andre not to behave like a looser by trying to kill him; instead he should just divorce Isabel. Andre said that it was not as simple as that, and he pushed Harrietta away from him and went back to his car.

As Andre drove, the Camera mainly only focused on his red eyes... he was out for a bloody revenge. As soon as he got home, he quietly went to Isabel¢s room he took an extra pillow from her bed and was about to smoother her to death but Rebeca came in just in time (before Andre had fully put the pillow over Isabel) to check on Isabel, and he lied to Rebeca that he was just rearranging the pillows over her head (Rebeca did not look convinced).

The following day Isabel visited Andre in his room. Andre told her that he was not feeling well. Isabel told him not to avoid the day's meeting. Andre told him that he was not going 'to be a coward' as soon as Isabel left he went under his bed and withdrew a hunting rifle (it was as long as an arm and had an eye-target magnifying piece). He went to the top floor attic and broke a bit of the window and aimed his gun at Isabel...

Promoted Above His Rival Enemy - Snippet 36

keep up the telenovela fire TESSIE!!!

Salvador continued seeing Valeria and started falling in love with her. He promised to meet with her outside the house at 10pm, but could not make it as Rebeca blackmailed him into another date, He however played for her in the study (nobody including Valeria knew that is was Salvador), everyone thought that it was the spirit of the 'late' Don Pedro. (I think this was the episode Andre went to bed and clutched his cross when he saw it was not Valeria playing).

Salvador came the following day and told Valeria that 'Pedro' had played "just for her and to celebrate Antonio's and Angela's wedding". In the same or a few episodes later, Valeria told Salvador that she could not be surprised if he had the same hands as Pedro and could even play the Piano as Pedro. Salvador told her that his hands were much larger than Pedro's and much rougher due to hard work...

Antonio, Simon, Abigail, Angela and Salvador went on a night out to celebrate the wedding. Salvador danced with Abigail and asked her if she could ever imagine dancing with Pedro. Abigail said she would never think of dancing with her boss... but Salvador reminded her... of the time she danced with Pedro, very many years ago, when her boys were still small children (he even recalls their ages), and she danced with Pedro, who promised to help her out...

Abigail became suddenly dizzy with these accurate facts being recounted with precision by a stranger (Salvador) whom they all just knew recently.... How could Salvador have known? She decided to sit down and while Salvador moves out of the table for some time, Angela told Abigail that her mother's brooch ("the little tear drop"), looks good on her and that Salvador was the one who gave her the necklace owned by her mother.

This made Abigail suspicious. Some episodes later, Abigail found Pedro's book about life after death and started reading it. Antonio found her with the book and she asked Antonio who Salvador really is (she suspected he was connected with Pedro), but Antonio declined to answer and walked away.

Isabel continued meeting and sleeping with Salvador, Andre however one day went and slept with Harrietta, his former girlfriend (and she is also Isabel's best friend and former room-mate) Harrietta told Andre that he did not deserve an unthankful woman who did not love him like Isabel, and that she loves him.

Andre was upset that she would pretend to be Isabel¢s friend and then talk about her in such a bad way. Harrietta wants Andre to leave Isabel and be with her. Andre told her that if she ever discovered who Isabel was cheating him with, then he might divorce her (He never meant this; he just wanted to know the truth about Isabel). Isabel tried poisoning him in another episode. But Andre got sick and started vomiting the poisoned drink, so he was not as affected. Walter was shocked at Isabel's in-difference on her husband¢s illness.

Later, as Angela continued trusting Salvador and Salvador proved to know so much about the company, Angela (and after a thorough interview and examination)the board of directors hired Salvador in one of the top positions. Andre saw a deep red when he heard this!! He was furious! To make matters worse, Angela rehired Simon in one of the top positions (he had been fired by Andre again previously).

Andre could not understand how the board of directors could allow a 'stupid little girl' make such outrageous decisions! The board of directors stood by their decision to keep Simon and Salvador in the company in their top positions. Soon afterwards, some episodes later, Salvador and one of the board of directors started digging out the dirt of how some of the maintenance workers bought poor quality material, how Andre had mis-managed the company, and how things were being poorly handled.

Andre was so furious that he couldn't think straight, he walked out of the directors meeting before they, as he claimed: "decided to put the cleaner and the cook in the top positions" He went and complained to Isabel. Isabel was sure the directors could not have hired Salvador or Simon if they were not highly qualified.

Through Isabel's request, the top director brought the documents Salvador had filled in. The director was quick to inform her that Salvador "even had the same handwriting as Pedro". After Isabel and later Andre examined Salvador's documents, they discovered that Salvador knew more about the company, even more than them. Isabel later took Salvador out to congratulate him in his new position. However as she went home she wondered to herself ¡who really was Salvador?
