IT'S RAINING TELENOVELAS: LA USURPADORA


Good news for the viewers of
LA USURPDORA....

Long before I created this blog, I managed to dig up Episodes 72 to 102(the finale) of this telenovela. I thought at first to bid my time but I figured, ‘why hold everyone in suspense?’ It is also my way of thanking everyone (especially Mrs. Philomena) for the warm welcome and comments posted, I really appreciate it. I’ll also be posting episodes of CATALINA Y SEBASTIAN but it will be 5 episodes at a time, like LA MUJER DE LORENZO, to make it easier, I sincerely hope you’ll all bear with me.

Now viewers of LA USURPADORA (CLICK ON THE LINK FOR SUMMARY) will recall that Paola blackmailed Paulina (both played incredibly by Gabriela Spanic) to take her place for a year and now Paulina is suffering for crimes she didn’t even commit but at the same time insists she’s guilty to cover her sister’s adultery. In yesterday’s episode, Paola (there’s nothing wrong with the stupid woman) teams up with her nurse, Elvira, offering her money for her silence. The workers at the factory are worried about Paulina and discuss contributing money to get her the best lawyer to help her out. Meanwhile, Carlitos (who tripped down the stairs and knocked himself out) regained consciousness (& his memory) because the first person he asked for was his Mummy and pulled his hand away from his "Abuela Chabela". I think this week; Carlos Daniel(FERNANDO COLUNGA) will definitely know the boy was never kidnapped and apologize to Paulina. Now, here’s Episodes 72 TO THE FINALE. Enjoy!



THE TRIAL
 Paulina was  called first and she gave her testimony; she  met Paola in the ladies' room at the hotel in Cancun where she worked as an attendant and was immediately shocked to see a woman identical to her  and Paulina had forced her to switch places with her for a year; after framing her for the theft of her bracelet.  While telling the story, Paola pretended to feel faint and starts crying and the judge asked  if she can continue the trial or not. She is given a glass of water to calm her down. (Nonsense!)  Paola was next to testify; asked to tell the court who she was with during the car accident in Monaco. Paola pretends to be feel faint  and the judge ordered Paola to be taken away for medical attention. Paulina foolishly  pleaded guilty of everything but her lawyer objects, saying  he had witness to prove Paulina's claim of guilt was false. Outside,  Paola is gloating to  Elvira how she made people believe she's fragile in order not to be exposed.

Willie demands for a lot of money from  Estefania  but she refused, there was their son to take care of. Outside the courtroom, Carlos Daniel told  Rodrigo and Patricia what went on inside. Rodrigo bluntly said  Paulina was stupid to have done such a thing; pleading guilty to protect Paola. Luciano, Paola's other lover, was also  summoned as a witness. He told the whole story to the court about how Paulina was coerced and framed  but the prosecutor needed proof that he was really there at the time and the trial was adjourned for 2 days. Lolita searches for the diary that would exonerate Paulina  and still cannot find it; it was in the toilet's water tank- Paulina had hidden it there.  (Paola decided to give Luciano  money to silence him. 


Edmundo and Luciano go to Cancun in search for witnesses and Celia and Philomena go to Mexico to attend Paulina's trial. Paola calls Carlos Daniel and request they have a talk.













THE VERDICT… Carlos Daniel met with  Paola at the hospital and they have a fight. Paola threatened  to send a letter to the children telling them the ursurper  they love so much was not their stepmother. C.D left the room angrily. Paola offered Luciano  money for his silence but he refused to accept it, explaining he was now a changed man. 

Paola make a call to Paulina, pretending to be full of remorse. Paulina, always softhearted, falls for the trick  and decides to visit Paola. Celia and Philomena give their testimony. The trial continues with several witnesses; including  Philomena, Celia, Zenobia,  and Carlos Daniel. Abuela Piedad told the court how Paulina had made positive changes in the family and got her to stop drinking. 

 Paulina met Paola at the hosptial. Paola called Piedad, warning her that she will be coming home soon  whether she liked it or not. Carlos Daniel found about Paola’s long time infidelity including her affair with Willy. Paulina was found NOT GUILTY. However, she refused to go back to the Bracho mansion, as it was no longer her home. Paola was very angry to hear  Paulina was set free.


While having lunch with Paulina, Carlos Daniel and Lissette , Carlitos asks Paulina why  she kept referring to herself in the third person. Paulina explained  she has a twin  who had the same name as hers. But Carlitos remembered that  Piedad had told him that Paola’s twin's  name was Paulina. Paulina quickly explained that their parents gave them the same name;  Paola Paulina and Paulina Paola. Meanwhile, Paola is ready to return to  Bracho mansion and sends Elvira to bring her clothes.   Rodrigo calls their lawyer and he is told that Paola has the right to come home because she and Carlos Daniel were still legally married.
 Meanwhile, Paulina goes out to buy the "wonder woman" costume  she promised Lisette  before she was arrested. Carlos Daniel is very angry about Paola coming back   but Rodrigo calmed him down. Paulina visits Paola at the hospital and tried to convince her not to return to the Brachos since they all hate her.Paulina is willing to give her money  to Paola in return. Paola laughs and reminds Paulina that she and Carlos Daniel will be together again. Rodrigo warned  his brother not to do anything that might  cause him serious trouble.
Carlitos was made to stay with Aunt  Patricia and Uncle Rodrigo to prevent him from seeing Paola. At first he refused but when he was told he will meet Aunt Paulina soon, he agreed. Elvira is very arrogant and disrespectful towards  Abula Piedad and informs her that  Paola will be coming home any time soon.


THE RETURN

Paola returned  and find out that no one was present to welcome her home and attend to her, to her fury. Paola ordered Lolita to wait on her as before  but  Lolita was following Mrs. Piedad's orders now. Paola angrily attempted to assert her position as the mistress of the house by  ordering 

 Cachita to set the table  in the dining room for her and Elvira . Cachita refused also, she only obeyed Mrs. Piedad. 

Abuela Piedad and Fidelina meet Paola in her room and have a loud  argument. In the middle of it, Lisette in and runs to her 'mummy' who  pretended  to treat her lovingly, to  the older women's anger.



Carlitos went to Paulina’s hotel with Carlos Daniel where he will be staying temporarily. Carlos Daniel passionately kissed Paulina when Carlitos asked him to do so. Pauly clung to him; telling him she loved him very much. Carlos Daniel smiled and held her in his arms, telling her to take care of their “their son”. Carlitos was pleased to see his ‘Mummy’ and Daddy love each other very much. Meanwhile, Estefania asked for her money from Rod afraid she might lose her inheritance now that Paola was back. Estefania gave Willy the right to act as her representative and claim her money from her brothers.Fidelina told Estefania that Carlos Daniel now knew about Paola’s relationship with Willy.
Estefania is worried Carlos Daniel would harm Willy.Willy goes to the factory and has an argument with Rodrigo; demanding his own office and a large salary. Rodrigo is very angry but there was nothing to do except comply since Willy is protected by law.

Leandro promised Abigail that he will take good care of Viviana. Veronica told Rodrigo and Carlos Daniel about the wedding and said it was just as well because if she had continued their relationship, she would have regretted it because Leandro will always belong to Viviana.
Paola received a call from Gemma and asked her to come to the house. Paola asked Gemma to take her to the factory. Piedad calls Rodrigo to stop Carlos Daniel from seeing Paola. Rodrigo calls Paulina into his office and informs her Paola was on her way. Paola arrived but Carlos Daniel cannot stand the sight of her and angrily left. Paulina still tries to make Paola see reason when she insisted on working at the factory and demanded a new car. Paola meets Willy in his office. Paola asked Elvira to find Gemma but Elvira said she saw Gemma with Carlos Daniel leaving together. In Paulina's office (actually Rodrigo and Carlos Daniel’s office), Paulina was told that Gemma was having lunch with Carlos Daniel and her face falls a bit.  
Rodrigo warned Paulina that Paola will never change but Paulina still defended her sister, telling Rodrigo that the reason why Paola acted like that because she was still  unstable and needed medical attention. Meanwhile Gemma convinced Carlos Daniel to send Carlitos to boarding school so he can forget about Paulina.


Elvira and Paola watch Carlos Daniel and Gemma talking.  Elvira asked Paola if she wasn’t afraid of losing her husband. Paola said that she rather lose him to Gemma than to the saintly Paulina.



A NEW LIFE FOR BOTH OF THEM





Edmundo asked Paulina out, she agreed but said she would bring Carlitos and Edmundo must call her Paola in the boy’s presence.

 Carlos Daniel decided to take more control of his life instead of always listening to advice.  Gemma entered Paola’s room to tell her that she had advised him not to depend too much on Paulina. She had also advised Carlos Daniel to divorce Paola. Paola angrily called Gemma a traitor.
Carlos Daniel tells Paulina that it's time for him to move on and start a new life. He said he going to send Carlitos to boarding school. Paulina agrees with him but is upset. Carlos Daniel advises Paulina to leave Mexico and start a new life; they both should choose their own path. They have tears in their eyes; for all the brave talk they were deeply in love.
 Carlos Daniel asked Paulina if she knew how much he loves her. Paulina say yes and she also asks Carlos Daniel whether he also knew that she loved him too, which he admits. Paulina sadly said that their love was forbidden, and then left the room. The door closes and Carlos Daniel bursts into tears. Paulina leaned against the door, telling herself that it was for the best; her own tears falling.

Willy come home and heard the conversation between Fidelina and Piedad, that Fidelina is Estefania’s real mother!

Piedad advised Estefania not to trust Willy. While having dinner, Carlos Daniel tells Piedad that he has made a decision to start a new life and he is going to send Carlitos to boarding school.

Meanwhile, Edmundo asks Paulina to marry him. Paulina wasn’t in love with him and says so but he asked her to think about over it. Paulina tells Carlos Daniel that she has persuaded Carlitos to go to boarding school. Carlos Daniel instructs Paulina not to use her money to buy Carlitos’ school things; she must send him the bills. Paulina informs Carlos Daniel that she was getting married.
C.D jealousy asked who the man was but Paulina doesn’t say. Piedad is angry about Carlos Daniel’s decision to distance himself from Pauly; Carlos Daniel told her Pauly had a new man, probably her lawyer, Edmundo Serrano but Piedad thought he  might be  the young man Paulina met in the court, Oswaldo.
Gemma asked Paola to join her and Carlos Daniel for dinner, Paola agreed and Carlos Daniel was furious.


 Edmundo has dinner with Paulina and Carlitos; to celebrate Carlitos’ admission to his new school. Then Paola, Carlos Daniel and Gemma also arrive and Paola notices Paulina having dinner with Edmundo and Carlitos, maliciously remarked how the usurper already had a boyfriend. Swallowing his jealousy, he replied there was nothing unusual about that, since Edmundo was Paulina's lawyer. Carlos Daniel went to Paulina’s table; she’s surprised to see him.


Edmundo politely asked Carlos Daniel to join them but Carlos Daniel coldly declined. Carlitos notices Paola Carlos Daniel and asked ‘Mummy’ who was the woman with Daddy. Gemma almost reveals the whole thing but Paulina silenced her and asked her to go.

 At the Bracho mansion, Paola mocks Carlos Daniel about Paulina's new man but he ignored them and went upstairs. Carlos Daniel told his grandmother about Paulina and Edmundo. Piedad tries to assure him otherwise but Carlos Daniel is now convinced Edmundo was the man Paulina was going to marry. He was upset and angry Paulina had kept their relationship a secret from him. The next morning, Paola informs Piedad about Paulina’s new man but Abuela remained loyal to Paulina; trusting her still.  Meanwhile Willy warned Estefania that her brothers will regret it if they try to cheat him. Paulina meets with Patricia, telling her she had a very bad feeling...


 Carlos is surprised by Willy... who brought out a gun and shot him! 




EMERGENCY!



Willy ran away amidst the panic.  Veronica ran to inform Rodrigo. Rod orders Veronica to call Paulina. Rod found   his brother lying down unconscious and bleeding and orders some to call an ambulance. Veronica informs Paulina, who instructed her to tell Rod to take Carlos Daniel to the hospital and to call the house to let the family know. Fidelina answered the phone and told Piedad about it.  Gemma informs her about her husband but Paola laughed, which puzzled Gemma. Paola explained that if Carlos Daniel died, she will be heir to the Bracho estate. Elvira admonishes Paola who demands to know whose side Elvira was on. Elvira- rather reluctantly said she was on Paola’s side.


At the hospital, Paulina tries to calm down a distraught and very angry Rod, begging him not to do anything stupid when he vows to kill Willy if he ever found him.  The nurses try to prevent Abuela Piedad from seeing Carlos Daniel but she insists on seeing her grandson, that she will take full responsibility. Carlos Daniel, in bed, holds Piedad’s hands, glad she was with him. She reminded him that every man needs a woman beside him; grandmother, mother, wife or lover. Carlos Daniel told Piedad not to have Willy arrested, for Estefania’s sake. Meanwhile, Willy takes all of Estefania’s jewellery and money; ready to flee.  She tries to stop him with Patricia’s help but Willy slapped her and leaves. Cachita asks Lolita to take the tea up to Paola who reluctantly obeys. Meanwhile, Paola is sitting on her wheelchair reading a magazine. The magazine dropped so she stood up to retrieve it just as Lolita walks in. The maid is shocked to see Paola on her feet at last! 


NABBED!

Paola, immediately covered up by pretending to stumble and fell down. Lolita helps her back into the chair but warned her not to try such a thing again as she might seriously hurt herself. Paola said she was just trying to walk to surprise the family later but warned her not to tell anyone about it and Lolita agreed. Elvira comes in and Paola scolds her for not locking the door.
At the hospital, Carlos Daniel recovers slowly. Piedad advises him to take a vacation outside Mexico to get his strength back.
Rod informs his brother that Willy had escaped. Carlos Daniel said it was just as well since he didn’t want Willy’s arrest to cause another scandal. Rod is furious by his brother’s decision but reluctantly agrees.
 Fidelina lost her temper and called Paola a bitch when Paola mockingly remarked that Carlos Daniel was probably dying.  Incensed with anger, Paola almost gets up from the chair but Elvira come to the rescue while Fidelina walked out the room in disgust. Paola maliciously decided to pay Carlos Daniel a visit. Elvira tried to talk her out of it but Paola insisted. Elvira goes to the kitchen to inform Fidelina about Paola’s intention. Fidelina called the hospital to warn Piedad and Carlos Daniel. Piedad instructed a nurse not to let Paola in. Paola arrived but the nurse, obeying Piedad’s instructions, refused to let her in.


Paulina explained Carlos Daniel’s condition to Carlitos before bringing over to see his Daddy. Carlos Daniel talks with Paulina about his proposed vacation outside Mexico, if she thought it was a good idea. Paulina reluctantly agreed that it might do him some good. Gemma also paid Carlos Daniel a visit, informing him she too might take a vacation. Gemma gave the news to Paola about Carlos Daniel’s recovery and upcoming vacation outside Mexico. Paola is very shocked. 



SETTLEMENT OR NO DIVORCE!

Piedad and little Lisette go to the airport with Carlos Daniel to see him off. Piedad consoles the child when she remarks how lonely she’s been with her brother off at school and ‘Mummy’ acting strange lately; now Daddy was leaving.
Paola, who already heard about Carlos Daniel’s vacation from Gemma, decides to proceed with the divorce. Meanwhile the new car is delivered and Paola drives it to the factory; honking repeatedly until she sees Rod glaring at her from the window. Rod thinks that Paulina is out of her mind for buying Paola the car. Estefania receives a letter from Willy; he’s very ill and begs her to send him money because he’s broke.  Willy is actually enjoying himself with another woman.  Paola bribes Lolita with 1000 pesos in exchange for Carlos Daniel’s address and phone number. She writes a letter to Carlos Daniel, asking for 1 million dollar alimony. Paola met with her lawyer and requested he halted the divorce proceedings until Carlos Daniel give her what she wanted, promising she would only sign the divorce papers if he paid up.


 The lawyer meets with Rod who refuses to accept what Paola asked for. The lawyer points out that since Carlos Daniel could afford a new a car for Paola; he must have a lot of money to give her. Rod however told the lawyer that Paulina, Paola’s sister, was the one who paid for the car, not Carlos Daniel. Paulina comes in and said she would offer her own money to Paola but Rod does not agree with that. Paulina tries her best to reason with Paola, telling her the Brachos did not have enough money to pay her. Paulina offers Paola 500 thousand dollars in return to leave the Brachos. Paola is angry and said that they both have nothing to talk about and hangs up the phone. Elvira walks in. Paola stands up but when she try to walk, she gets cramp. Elvira asks whether she just pretending but Paola said that it’s real and Elvira leads her back to bed. Paola noticed that Elvira had changed and warned Elvira not to betray her by telling everyone she could actually walk; threatening to take her eyes out if she ever tried it. Lolita comes in to inform Paola that Piedad found out about the letter but Paola assures her she had nothing to worry about. Meanwhile, Patricia advised Estefania about Willy’s request, with a warning that she’ll regret it later. Willy called Estefania, asking for the money. Estefania called Paulina, telling her she needed access to her 200 million pesos. Paulina is worried but promised to ask Rod about it. Meanwhile, Willy is abandoned by his new girlfriend. Oswaldo stops by at the factory, looking for a job as he wants to change his life instead of depending on a rich woman to support him like before. Paulina gives him the position of sales manager and asked for Rodrigo’s approval. Rod trusts Paulina’s judgment and Oswaldo was asked to report to work the following day.



PAULINA’S SHADOW

Meanwhile, Gemma prepared for her vacation and heard Carlos Daniel was in Monterrey.
 In Monterrey, Carlos Daniel and his new girlfriend, Isabel kiss but he saw Paulina’s face instead. Carlos Daniel called Paulina, telling her how much he missed her. Paulina tearfully but calmly advised Carlos Daniel to start a new life. He promised to follow her advice, if that was what she really wanted and they both hang up. Paulina burst into tears.... of course it wasn’t what she wanted!
 Carlos Daniel proposed to Isabel but she turned him down, stating it was too soon as she wanted them to be friends first then fall in love. Gemma stop by at the same restaurant, she smiled when she saw Carlos Daniel with Isabel and went to their table.
Gemma and Isabel verbally spar with each other, with Carlos Daniel caught in the middle. Carlos Daniel asked Gemma not to tell anyone about him and Isabel. Gemma dropped a heavy hint about telling Paulina, much to Carlos Daniel’s discomfort.  Rod asked Paulina about Oswaldo and she admits to him that Oswaldo is her ex boyfriend but wanted to help him.
 Rod and Pat pay a visit to Piedad and she’s told about Paulina wanting to give her money to Paola. Piedad pointed out there is nothing they could do about it since it’s Paulina's money. Pat also tells her that Edmundo had proposed to Paulina and Abuela is not pleased.


 Rod is worried that Paulina might give away all her money to Paola if she wasn’t careful, she was being naive. 


WHAT’S WRONG WITH ESTEFANIA???

.Patricia expresses her fears to Rod about the possibility of Estefania not being right in the head; she’d been acting weird lately. Estefania matched into Rod’s office and informed him that she wants to have a meeting and fire all the auditors. Rod suspects that his sister was not well, like Pat said.
Estefania claimed she doesn’t trust the auditors, acting more erratically. Rod said he wouldn't agree with her but will not stop her from having the meeting and firing the auditors but she would have to pay them out her own pocket. Estefania said she doesn't care about it; she still wants to fire them. Paulina comes in to intervene.

  

Estefania walked into the room where all the auditors are working and said they were all fired. Paulina walks in, surprised to see Estefania behaving in that manner and tells Rod about it. Before that, Paola had asked Lolita to find Estefania and Willy's address, giving her money for the information. Paola asked Elvira to go with her to the house and they both wait outside Willy and Estefania’s house. Elvira notices a car parked in front of the house... it was Willy.Willy is very surprised to see her and Paola asks Elvira to get out from the car so that Willy and her can talk in private. They agree destroy the Brachos together. Pat paid a visit to Piedad to discuss Estefania’s weird behaviour. Piedad is troubled but asked her not to say so to Fidelina. She loved Estefania and it would really upset her. Pat stops talking as Fidelina comes in with the coffee. Paola stands at the doorway; Lisette calling out that Mummy was walking again. Piedad, Fidelina and Patricia stare at Paola, amazed.

IT IS A MIRACLE!

Pat regarded it as a miracle but Piedad was sure   Paola had been pretending the whole and fooled everyone, including Pauly. She calls Rod and tells him about Paola. Rod in turn told Paulina who also regarded it as a miracle and Rod is exasperated by her naivety. Carlos Daniel makes a new friend during his vacation, a woman called Isabel.
 Gemma called Paola and informs her about C.D and Isabel. Paola happy to hear about it and went to meet Piedad in her room and told her but Piedad scoffs, refusing to believe her. They have an argument and Piedad orders Paola to get out from her room. Meanwhile, Isabel suggests to Carlos Daniel they end their friendship to avoid disappointment and regrets since he was obviously so much in love with Paulina Martinez and Carlos Daniel agreed. Paola went to the factory and Blanca surprised to see Paola walking. Then she walks into the office and finds Paulina and Rod having a confab. Paulina tries to calm down a furious Rod and Paola tells her about C.D and his new girlfriend. Paulina’s face falls but says that she happy to hear he’s moving on. Paola still insists about the 1 million, refusing to accept Paulina's offer of 500 thousand. Paola met Willy at the coffee house; he is surprised to see Paola walking. Paola confessed she’d been pretending the whole time in order to be able to stay at the house. They both agree to burn down the factory.


  Willy is to find someone that would do it for them.




ELVIRA FINALLY OPENS HER MOUTH!

Nurse  Elvira-  more or less a silent observer in the whole drama- decided  to confess and expose Paola; whom she thought was the real victim in the whole affair. 

She told Mrs. Piedad everything and Abuela was furious!
Unfortunately, Paola was eavesdropping 
  and heard everything, vowing to make Elvira pay for her betrayal.  Elvira informed Paola she wanted to get paid for her services and that she was returning back to her job at the hosptial. Paola sweetly said how sorry she was to hear she was leaving and suggested they both go to the bank to withdraw the money to pay her.  Paola called Willy to ask whether he’s gotten what she asked him for.  Elvira comes back with her bag and they set off. Paola drives the car very recklessly, much to Elvira's alarm-  persuading Paola to slow down. Paola refused and increased  speed instead.
 She turned to Elvira, shouting  that she should thank her for telling on her- she'd heard everything.  Elvira is filled with terror and tries to grab the steering wheel but  Paola pushed her  side and both women struggle over the wheel. Paola lost  control of the car and the car went  down a steep hill. Elvira is thrown out of the car and when witnesses arrived at the to help,  she was already dead!
