At the office; David tries to make Marcelo confess his crime. Cinthia and Aide bully Lorena; Aide slaps Lorena, causing her to fall into the swimming pool. Oscar points out that David acted hastily, he doesn't have evidence yet. David said he'll talk to Elena about it but after he's able to clear Lorena. He admits he's now in love with her and if she's innocent as he believed; he didn't want to lose her.
Back home; Lorena, Aurelio and Julia tell him what Cinthia and Aide did. David tells the two women to treat his wife with respect from now on, or else. They storm out in anger.
In her room, Lorena and David confess their love for each other; exchanging kisses. David told Lorena to think about nothing but them from now on. Lorena is very happy that David loves her. Later that night, David an Lorena go on another date; this time dinner at the yacht to celebrate the new phase of their relationship.
Elena asked Marcelo why he's been so weird around Lorena and …

Enrique and Cinthia fight over their marriage. Marcelo is furious with Lorena for kissing David. Lorena protested she had to; but Marcelo disagreed- she'd kissed David because she wanted to; he didn't force her at all. He warned her not to betray him as she still belonged to him. But Lorena proudly stood her ground; she belonged to NO ONE! Marcelo demanded that she asked David for a divorce; that she should tell him she hated him. (Like that will be easy; it's obvious Lorena is already attracted to David and vice versa). Enrique sees them arguing and tells David.
Cinthia and David argue over money she's been spending a lot lately. Cinthia callously remarked that maybe things would have been better if he HAD died. She takes out her anger on Lorena, sarcastically pointing out Lorena's simple dress- 'still dressed like a beggar.' Didn't David buy her new clothes?
Lorena calmly told her to mind her own business. Cinthia warned her she'll have a very di…

David is rushed to the hospital and he doesn't remember the events before the crash. Oscar said that his wife has gotten over the shock and wants to see him.
'Who?' asked David.
'Lorena, of course.'
David, naturally, is VERY confused.
Lorena and Julia don't know what to do; Marcelo might carry out his threat of murdering them if they told David or Elena what happened. Lorena wondered how on earth could she have fallen for a man like Marcelo.
Marcelo on the other hand wondered why David hasn't denied Lorena as his wife but planned to frame Lorena if David does make an accusation. Lorena goes to see David and the conversation is awkward. Marcelo barges in and tries to get Lorena out of the room but David insisted she stay.
David is more baffled at the photo of him and Lorena (doctored); even if he couldn't remember their wedding at least he would remember a beautiful lady like her being in his life. German and Marcelo talk; Marcelo is very uneasy at the w…

Business finally done, David phones German, asking where Marcelo was and is exasperated when informed Marcelo was no where to be found. He tells German he was heading back to Acapulco with his secretary; Marcelo will have to go home himself. David, his secretary and pilot go into the helicopter and it takes off.
As Marcelo and Lorena celebrate; something comes loose and the helicopter flies strangely. David is flung out and falls several feet; the helicopter crash lands; killing the pilot and David's secretary.
Lorena gently reminds Marcelo they'd agreed not to have sex until after the church wedding when he tries to get amorous. He receives a call from German confirming 'everything went according to plan'.Hanging up, he tells Lorena that he was being summoned back to the office in Acapulco.
At the Montalvo mansion, David's younger sister Cinthia complains to Elena that David was too much of a workaholic. Marcelo comes back alone, telling the 2 women that he and D…

Long before I created this blog; I found out my favourite telenovela , TU O NADIE was remade twice in 1995; ACAPULCO BAY & ACAPULCO CUERPO y ALMA (Acapulco with Body and Soul). At first I thought Acapulco Cuerpo y Alma  was the 2nd version of TU O NADIE but according to one of the actors of ACAPULCO BAY after I commented on FACEBOOK that both remakes were shot in the same house; it was released after ACAPULCO BAY (the only remake true to the original). So now... I'm sharing the episodes of this version of Tu O Nadie in this blog. 


Zithuatanejo. A beautiful young woman runs across the street laughing gaily and  holding a package; her shiny black hair flying in the breeze. This is the heroine- Lorena Garcia and she's on her way back from the tailor's with her wedding dress. Waiting for her at their father's beach restaurant & bar is her younger sister,Julia who isn't pleased Lorena is late but Lorena is too happy to care; she holds up her pink flowery dress fo…

Crystal Chappell asked to return to DAYS???

Well, well, well... how the tables have turned!  Carbo fans smarted over what was regarded as a huge insult and unfairness some time last year; when Crystal Chappell was bounced out of DAYS OF OUR LIVES and a wonderful love story- Bo & Carly- ended on a very sad note. But since that time CC has only waxed stronger as she threw all her acting talents and energy on her hit web series; VENICE (which even earned her an Emmy so sucks to NBC) and two more for her fans to look forward to... THE GROOVE and THE TEAM. Since her firing, she's gotten even more love and support and I for one admire her greatly at the way she simply accepted what happened and  went onwards. And since she left; DAYS went from bad to worse; no thanks to a very silly man.
Now what did we Carbos hear recently via Twitter? The embattled DAYS executive producer Ken Corday has fired the head writers and rehired the ones he fired after CC's departure and more so... CC has been asked to return to DAYS! HA... lik…
