RAQUEL'S EMBARASSMENT
















N.B: Click on link for the final episode of LA REVANCHA.

Vicky is instantly worried about the scandal this mishap would cause. She could'nt imagine what Daniel was doing at such a place in the first place & they would have to make such the matter is'nt circulated all over Acapulco. Max is given the responsibility of bailing Daniel out and put off any journalists sniffing around. After he left, Vicky went upstairs and gently gave Raquel the bad news. Distressed, Raquel wanted to go to the station to see if her father was alright but Vicky immediately objected, they had to avoid scandal. Raquel snappishly said Daniel was her father after all. Vicky agreed but reminded the young woman she was a Lombardo and as Tonio's wife, she owed her husband the courtesy of not drawing negative attention to herself, which she would do if she went to the police station. Any journalists around would recognise her and hound the whole matter out of her before she knew it. She mus'nt worry; Max had already gone to the station to bail him out.

Daniel & Chucho are of course very upset at being locked up; Chucho especially. Max gives his name at the front desk and told the officer he wished to set bail. While he was waiting, a journalist approached him and asked some questions & the son-of -a-bitch answered them TRUTHFULLY! The officer came back and directed him to where the bail was to be paid.

Mercedes too was locked up and tried to persuade one of the guards she had'nt meant to disturb the peace.

At the office, Tonio's trusted personal assistant, Pablo(fans would recognise him as Alberto's chauffeur in THE RICH ALSO CRY) reported the results of his investigations; they still needed the judge who had conducted the civil wedding as a valuable witness against Max. Raquel called the office to speak with her husband but Tonio had already stepped out of the office.

The officers release Daniel to Max and Daniel begged Max to bail out Chucho and Mercedes but Max coldly told him they were'nt his business and they left the station, Daniel still begging him.

At the mansion, Raquel anxiously waited for her father & asked Ramon where her sister was. Ramon told her Martha had gone out for a drive with Luis. During the drive, Luis suggested Martha take a hand at the wheel - as her first lesson, which she does.

Back at the mansion ,Maura paid Raquel an unwelcome visit. As usual, she says a lot of things to make Raquel's hackles rise, including remarking that Tonio did'nt like women who smoked after Raquel lit a cigarette. Raquel sarcastically pointed out she was not an expert in what her husband liked or disliked and began smoking, handling Maura as best as she could when her rival continued with her veiled taunts. Tonio walked in and greeted Maura before moving to kiss Raquel. Maura got up boldly kissed him on the mouth, much to Raquel's fury- who did'nt seem to notice that Tonio subtly wiped his mouth. As Maura rose to go, she kissed him again and said goodbye to Raquel. After the door closed, Raquel angrily asked her husband whether it was necessary for Maura to kiss him on the lips all the time. Tonio teased her over her jealousy, assuring her Maura was just a family friend now and grinned when Raquel gave an angry snort.
Max returned with Daniel(who was looking very sorry for himself). Raquel immediately got up to embrace her father, asking if he was alright and bade him to go and shower & rest. Max gave a snide remark about the favor he'd done. Raquel glared at him, guessing correctly that he was enjoying her embarassment. Tonio of course, was baffled at the whole thing, no one had said anything to him after all! After Daniel went back to the guest bungalow, Tonio asked Raquel what happened. Thoroughly ashamed and embarassed, Raquel replied she did'nt exactly know what had happened, it seemed her father went out to gamble or something...
Vicky came in and greeted Tonio before soberly turning to Raquel; she had seen Daniel outside and asked if Max had succeded in avoiding the journalists. As Raquel stammeringly tried to reply, Tonio snappishly asked, what on earth was going on!
