So first off, I can’t believe they really killed off Alejandro! I was so hoping that he would have been able to survive the gunshot, but then things would have been too easy for Carmen. I’m hoping thought that he’s left her something in his will, but if so it seems she will have to fight his family for anything. I’m guessing a little blackmail about Alejandro’s sexuality will be used here . . .
The Ethan, Remi and Valentina storyline is boring me. I’ve never really been that fond of Valentina, and I can’t stand the way she treats her mother. We the viewers have learned that Remi is very sick down in South America, and because some other girl answered his skype, Valentina jumped to the wrong conclusion. Meanwhile Ethan is, it seems, involved with the gang of thieves. We still don’t know what they are up to. I’m wondering if they are all the kids of maids, and this is how they know who to target? Is this some kind of Robin Hood story gone wrong?
The Opal storyline so far is the best part of the new season. As a friend pointed out, it seems to be inspired by the book/movie “Rebecca.” If you don’t know the story, it’s about a young girl who is involved with an older man who seems to be haunted by the specter of his dead wife. The wife died mysteriously, and he has a housekeeper who is obsessed with the dead wife. Yeah, it really is similar! We the viewers learned that someone warned Nick’s dead wife Dahlia about Opal and to get her out of the house. It seems Opal is the real evil here, not the wife. Well there is also the fact that it appears Nick killed his wife too . . . We still don’t really know what happened there.
The storyline with Spence and Peri is really on getting on my nerves too. Peri is so evil and never seems to get her comeuppance. She’s leaked to the tabloids that she and Spence are having problems, and that Spence may have cheated on “America’s Sweetheart.” Frankly I hope some tabloid exposes what a witch she is and soon. To be honest though, Spence has been such a wuss and caved into her so much that I don’t know if I want to see him with Rosie!
I love the storyline with Rosie’s new family and how she is helping Kenneth, the man of the house paralyzed with a stroke, to get better. Either his stripper wife or spinster daughter had to have caused his stroke somehow . . . should be interesting!
Evelyn’s infatuation with their security guard is amusing. I hope she doesn’t cross the line as I love her and Adrian! Sure their relationship is sick and twisted, but they bring the over-the-top camp to the show that it needs.
I’m actually not that sad over Zoila’s husband taking off. Honestly given last season, it seems she always settled for him because Genevieve’s brother was off limits. She needs to find someone who will make her happy. I loved the scenes between her and Genevieve this week after her marriage fell apart and Genevieve took on the strong supportive role for once.
So that’s my thoughts so far. Leave yours, and check out some spoilers for the next several shows below!
