Show: Los Hombres de Paco (Paco’s Men) — Spain, drama
What happened: After having a talk with Sara, Pepa and Silvia decide it’s a good idea to go shopping for beds. While having lunch, Silvia suggests that they each make a list of their top fantasy objects on a napkin. Silvia just lists men, and Pepa gets upset and lets Silvia know that if those are her fantasies then she will never be able to fulfill them. Before she can go any further, Silvia takes the napkin back and writes down a woman’s name (the waitress/owner of the place they go to all the time). Pepa gets jealous and leaves the table. Later Pepa decides to put an unloaded gun to the woman’s head, take her to the kitchen and ask where she’s hiding the drugs. Silvia sees and runs behind her, Pepa removes the gun and lets Silvia know that she’s done with fantasies because now she’s getting married and the only fantasy she has is with Silvia in it. They hug and kiss while the woman yells at them for scaring her.

Show: Infidels — Spain, drama
What happened: Arlet calls the school to tell them she’s sick and she can’t go to work. When she hangs up, Dani asks why she lied to the school, and she answers that she wants to spend more time with her, and asks Dani to do the same thing but Dani refuses. Arlet decides to assist in Dani’s aquagym classes, so Arlet is really tired when they wake up the next day. Late that day, Dani tells Arlet that she’s going to spend the night at her own house, and Arlet gets angry because she already made plans for them that evening. Dani says that she needs a little spac, because if they’re always together they’re never going to miss each other. Arlet understands and says OK, but Dani re-thinks her decision later and appears at Arlet’s house saying she misses her too much to stay away.

Show: Verbotene Liebe (Forbidden Love) — Germany, drama
What happened: With the unexpected help of Adrian, an old and not-so-friendly acquaintance, Sebastian and Elisabeth manage to get Carla released from prison. Carla’s first order of business when she gets home is to offer to spend Stella’s birthday with her since it appears that Charlie forgot. When the two get back from their shopping spree, all of Stella’s friends and family have gathered for a surprise party. Charlie kisses Stella full on the mouth for everyone to see, making this their first official appearance as a couple. Stella fakes a stomach ache to secure some alone time with her new love. Charlie agrees with Stella that she’s happy their paths have crossed, but she flees when Stella wants more than kissing. Leonard tells Carla and Ansgar that he suspects that Maria Galdi, their cousin’s private secretary, is their mother, who supposedly died in a car crash many years ago.

Then they have a trampoline photoshoot for the Three Muskateers candy bar, and Sandy laments having to be so girly (she’s bouncing in a flowly blue dress), but her team wins the challenge and impresses the candy company enough that they decide to use the photo for an ad. Sandy easily makes it to another round.
