El Cuerpo del Deseo: Final Episode

The 'Second Chance' telenovela (El Cuerpo del Deseo) ends in this chapter. Yes, this is the end of the great story. If you have been following from my telenovela stories sitemap, then, you can 'flow' into this grand finale now.

Philippe was loading his paintings in the car, and Valeria, Antonio, Simon and Angela pleaded with him to help them to take Salvador home. Philippe said that he never again wanted to hear about Salvador. Antonio, Simon, Angela and Valeria continued pleading with Philippe.

Philippe gave up and told them that he could tell them where his nephew Father Giacomo lived as Salvador lived in a remote place but they would have to take Salvador themselves. Valeria agreed and Philippe gave them Father Giacomo's address.

Back in the Donoso house, Vicky informed Abigail and the maids of the newspaper headline, where Rebeca had been found in a hotel room having committed suicide by hanging herself with a rope. They decided not to tell anybody as the news was just too horrible.

Angela, Antonio, Simon and Valeria arrived at the Donoso house and called out to Salvador. Salvador warily came out. Antonio and Angela asked Salvador if he wanted to go back home to Las Crustas. Salvador happily said yes!! Antonio told Salvador to get ready and for his belongings to be packed as he was going that very evening. Salvador was ecstatic.

Later, Salvador's belongings were put in the car. Outside the house, Salvador apologized to Abigail and Vicky for the chaos he had caused. Vicky and Abigail told him that they had not minded at all and told him how much they would miss him, even if he did not know them well. The two maids asked Salvador if they could hug him as even if he did not remember or know them, to them he was the most important person to them.

Salvador happily agreed and the two maids hugged him. Angela told the maids to look after her baby son as he was the most precious thing/person she had. Salvador asked her for the name of the baby and she told him the baby's name was Pedro Antonio Dominguez. Salvador finally entered the car with Simon, Angela and Antonio drove them away; for the last time we say goodbye to the Donoso house and Abigail, Vicky, the maids and baby Pedro. ('Babatunde' as the Yorubas of Nigeria would call him 'father-has-returned').

Antonio drove all night and the very next day, they had reached Las Crustas. Antonio asked Salvador to guide him as from where they were he did not know the road or way to follow. Salvador told Antonio to follow the road where the priest with the bicycle was on (The priest was Father Giacomo).

Antonio drove past Father Giacomo. Father Giacomo saw Salvador in the car and made the sign of the cross as he could not believe that Salvador had come back to town! He called out to Salvador and cycled faster than ever before trying to reach Salvador (It looked funny as Father Giacomo was much lager than the small bicycle he was ridding).

Antonio reached a rough road. Salvador asked Antonio to pull-up the car as the car could not move further on the rough road. Simon wondered if they had to remove Salvador's belongings but Antonio told Simon that they first had to gauge where Salvador was going so that they did not take him to a bad place. Salvador, Antonio, Simon, and Angela walked the rest of the way.

In a short while, Salvador saw his wife and son working on the farm. He called out to them and ran to greet them. Cantalicia was so shocked and happy to see her Salvador and she ran to meet him. The two met in a hug. Salvador then hugged his son Mancho.

He told Cantalica that she had no idea of what he had been through or the things he had done. He said he could not even tell her some of the things he had done as she might not accept him and would be annoyed at him. Cantalicia gave him a look that clearly said that (she knew and) she had forgiven him.

Salvador showed Cantalicia the shoes he had been given. Removing the shoes off his feet and showing it to Cantalicia on her face.. He said that he had been with the very nice people that included Mrs. Angela who had given him the shoes and other nice things (some or most were Salvador/Pedro's belongings).

Antonio told Simon that they had to leave Salvador in Las Crustas as obviously he was happy there and later they would take his belongings from the car and give it to him.

Salvador looked back while hugging his wife Cantalicia and his son Muncho. He then waved to Angela, Antonio, and Simon and told them, especially Angela to look after themselves and especially the little baby, and he would look after his wife Cantalicia and son Mancho.

Angela, Simon and Antonio waved back. The scene ended with a bird's eye view of Salvador, Cantalicia and Mancho, walking away from the camera on their farm.



The end.
