Over at her apartment, Mariana sits on the futon having flashbacks about Julia. Like when they made out on Julia’s bed and that one time they had sex.
The next morning, Hernan drops by and asks her how it’s going with Julia.
Mariana: Wonderful, perfect, geometricizing love.
Mariana doesn’t want to talk about it and that’s fine by Hernan cause he’s got a different topic for Mariana.
He wants to talk to her about her last name. He wants her to take his.
And then we move on to episode 66, where Aurelia’s opening monologue treats us to some more of Mariana’s Julia-related flashbacks.
When we meet up with Mariana again, she’s in the Aparicio kitchen with Aurelia and Rafaela, who are asking her why she’s not been by to see them. Mariana says she’s been busy cooking and that she’ll bring them some samples later.
She tries to leave, but Rafaela insists that she join her for a cup of coffee. Rafaela tells her that she overheard what Julia said to them the other day and that she doesn’t agree with any of it. She doesn’t like what Julia is doing to Mariana, to Armando and to herself. She doesn’t understand it and she doesn’t subscribe to it.
We all know that Rafaela is forever Team Mariana.
