CC: TELEMUNDO NETWORK LADY ALTAGRACIA Has Braulio arrived yet? Yes, ma’am. I know how we’re going to get
a sample of his saliva. Make sure you keep an eye
on his glass. Pick this up and pour
some champagne for him. Altagracia, Tania said
you were here. What’s all this? Aren’t you going
to congratulate me? I just signed off on
a million-dollar contract. Did you talk to the women
from the foundation? Yes.
It’s all set. Perfect. It’s time for a toast. We have a project
that’ll close out the past and open up our future. Cheers, darling. What is it? Aren’t you going
to take a sip? I don’t know. I’m just a bit surprised
by all of this. Is it wrong to celebrate your
amazing work and dedication? Who gets you, Braulio? Alright.
Fine. A toast. Cheers. It’s delicious, isn’t it? Have some more. To be honest, I liked Saul
the moment I saw him. He wasn’t wearing a shirt.
It was really weird. That’s not the point, though. I was really shocked to find out
he had a girlfriend. Yes. All the girls in Veracruz
were crazy about him, but Ximena would
scare them all off. She sure scared me off…
and God knows who else. I respect that, though. Once I found out he had
a girlfriend, I backed off. I didn’t even get
my hopes up. You know what they say. There’s no point
in feeding a stray. Or something like that. I know, Mona. You never really got over him,
did you? No. And I mean, it’s not like
I was after him. I never threw myself on him
or begged him for affection. I never even flirted
with him. Especially not once I found out
he was seeing Lady Altagracia. I don’t know. No matter how hard I tried
to gain distance from him in order to avoid heartbreak,
I just couldn’t. I can’t seem to get him
out of my head or my heart. What are you going to do now that you know you both
have feelings for each other? Worry. I’m worried about my dad…
and getting out of here, too. We can’t do anything as long
as we’re locked up. My father comes first, though. He means the world to me. And as for Saul… I guess I’ll have to take care
of him. Of our relationship. We’ll finally get to make up
for lost time… or better yet, make some
of my dreams come true. I’ve been wanting to kiss him
for a while now. You’ll be out of here
before you know it. Yes. Matamoros, could you leave us? Clean up
this glassware first. We don’t want people thinking
we drink all day. So, tell me.
Why are you so surprised? I don’t know. You’ve been complaining about
my waning efficiency as of late. In retrospect, I was a bit
too harsh on you. I took out my anger
and frustration on you. I’m sorry. It was unfair of me to doubt
your trustworthiness. Seriously. My sincerest apologies. You mean that? Yes. So, tell me how it went with
the ladies from the foundation. Are they to be trusted? Yes, totally. They’re all just
battered women. The kind of women
that eventually return to their abusive husbands. Well done, Braulio. You hand-picked those women so I’m sure they’re
the right people to bring down the foundation… and their founding hero. Mr. Rafael? I just left the
Attorney General’s office here in Veracruz. Were you able
to find out anything? No, not at all, sir. Are you sure the incident
took place here? Yes, it happened in Veracruz. You can’t leave until you’ve
gathered some information. Look…
I spoke to some veterans and they said they didn’t
remember the case. They did give me
some contact info for some ex-police officers
that are still local. Perhaps they know something. Well, what are you waiting for?
Find them. Sorry, I just wanted
to let you know first. Call me once you have
any important information. Don’t waste my time, please. Very well. It’s time to go after
my third assailant. Daniel Llamas doesn’t know
what’s coming to him. I’m sorry for making you feel
so bad. I never should’ve
doubted you. I’ll make it up
to you somehow. You know I’m not interested
in money. Yes, I know.
You want me. Always. Not here, Braulio. How about somewhere else? Are you saying
you’ll give me a chance? What I’m saying is,
perhaps… Pardon me, ma’am. Braulio, head on down
to the PR department. We want our photographers to join us on our trip
to the foundation. Of course. Did you get it? Braulio’s champagne glass. Excellent. Have the forensic technician
compare the DNA to the hair he found
on Jaime Aguirre’s body. I need to confirm
my suspicions… that Braulio was the one
who killed him. Yes.
I’ll be waiting. Okay. How’d it go?
What’d he say? Good. He said I’m clear
of any risks. He’s going to prepare
the OR. Valeria, what procedure
are you getting, exactly? Are you sure
it isn’t dangerous? He says I’m still within
the first 12 weeks, which means I can undergo
this weird procedure. It’s called a… “manual uterine aspiration.” He said it’s 100%… safe. I’m going to be fine. So it’ll be quick. It’s not
going to hurt. I hope not! He said he was going
to give me a sedative. I won’t need to go
to the hospital. I’m going to be fine. It’s an outpatient procedure.
I’ll be just fine. Girl… I know I’ve pressured
you because of time constraints, but you don’t seem too sure
you want to do this. I have no
other choice, Leticia. I have to do this. I need to calm down
and get it over with. No. Not now. Please don’t do this to me.
No! Please start.
Please don’t do this. I’m going! The car won’t start! The engine’s dead!
I’m not doing this on purpose! Gutierrez, let’s go! Where are they
taking them? To court hearings
or disputes. They need to wait 12 hours
in between trials. What do they do
in between? They work. They work the most
degrading job there is. They prostitute themselves. What? But they’re headed
to the courthouse. How can they possibly
prostitute themselves? Look, Mona. They house the male inmates
in one room and the female inmates
in another. While they wait,
male inmates pay the guards to take them over
to the ladies’ room. Once there, they point out
the girls they want. If you agree to do it, they shove you in a bathroom
to do the deed. Once you’re finished,
you get paid. What? They do it
in the bathroom? Yes. I never agreed to do
any of that stuff, but lots of girls do it
for the money. The guards keep most
of the money anyway, though. I can’t believe this. Why should we have to sell
ourselves like this? Some of these girls
are innocent. Why should they
be put through all this? The real criminals are out
roaming the streets… without a care in the world. How are things with Isabela? Have you distanced yourself
from her like I asked you to? No, Dad. Especially not now that she
had to move out with her mom after her aunt
kicked them out. Altagracia asked Regina
to leave, not Isabela. Same thing! I would’ve done the same if Mom
had done something to you. Can you write me
the check already? I’m getting to that.
How much do you need? 300. I can give you that
in cash. 300,000.
Obviously. 300,000? Why do you want a check
for 300,000 pesos? I want to buy a motorcycle,
but it’s American. At the dealership, they told me they needed
something extra to register it. Otherwise, it’ll be illegal
to drive it here and you wouldn’t want me
getting into trouble… Yes, I know.
Understood. Now, I’m writing you a hefty
check so you can buy a bike. The least you could do in return
is dump Isabela. A motorcycle in exchange
for Isabela? Is that what
she’s worth to you? Haven’t you heard
the saying? There are plenty of fish
in the sea. Is that how you see
my mother, too? Is she replaceable
as well? No.
Don’t get it twisted. Your mother’s an honorable woman
and she deserves respect. And Isabela isn’t. Yes, but… Let’s just say she’s a lovely
and educated young woman. I’m just asking you
to do me that favor. Stay away from her. Emiliano. At least think it over. Is everything ready? She can come to the OR
with me, right? I’m sorry, but that
won’t be possible. Don’t worry, sweetie. I’ll be here for you. I’m not moving
from here. Come on. Be strong. This way, please. I can’t believe this. Why? Why me? Hey, man! I have an emergency.
Can I buy your bike? My car broke down. Please. -I can’t.
-Please? Look, man.
I’m begging you. A child’s life is at stake. Okay. Is that okay? Thank you so much.
God bless you, bro. Keep the rust bucket. Thanks! Lazaro woke up? He opened his eyes? Yes… but he’s still suffering
from extreme cranial pressure. That’s what’s causing him
temporary blindness. He can make out lights,
objects, faces, and even movements, but they’re
all going to seem blurry. It hurts to say this,
but I’m not surprised. His vision’s been failing him
as of late. He’s also been experiencing
some mild episodes of hysteria. What do you mean? Will he recognize me? Is he going crazy? No, not at all. He just has bouts
of confusion. He may be prone to fainting
or sudden forgetfulness. But he can talk and carry out
a conversation, right? Yes… but we can’t force him
to talk. He’s still intubated. I won’t force him
to do anything, Doctor. Please let me
see him again. I need to be with him. Okay.
I’ll join you. Yes, of course. This is the ceramics class. They learn how to make vases
and other traditional wares that are then sold to tourists
visiting the capital. So you don’t just offer them
shelter and protection. You’re also teaching
these women ways to sustain themselves
in the future. That’s right. These women deserve
to be independent. Many of them withstood
years of abuse all because they relied
on their partners support. Now you’re giving them a chance
to start anew. That’s right. You said Altagracia started
working at a very young age. What would she do? At first, she followed
in my father’s footsteps. My father was
a construction worker. That’s how she learned
everything she knows now. Don’t come any closer. Run! Let go of him! Why’d you do that, Paco? Your father was
a construction worker. Yup.
Hard to believe, I know. Because Altagracia’s
a millionaire, people assume we’ve
always been rich… but we come from
very humble beginnings. LADY ALTAGRACIA
