Then Armando arrives to ruin the fun. He goes to greet Rafaela and it’s quite evident that she hates him almost as much as we all do. Julia looks annoyed to see him and then he announces to everyone that the two of them are officially back together and Mariana looks about as pleased as we all are with the announcement (although she hides it well beneath thinly veiled sarcasm). Julia proposes that now that she and Armando are back together and Mariana is together with Dany that the four of them go out together. Mariana looks thrilled by the prospect. Thrilled.
In fact, let me get a screencap of how thrilled Mariana and Rafaela look about this whole Armando thing.
Armando decides to hang around and be annoying so Julia drags him outside to talk. And she’s all irritated that he showed up and he’s all upset that she’s irritated. And blah blah and finally he’s like, “Is it your mom? What does she have to do with anything? Or is it someone else?” Julia looks startled by this but then, instead of answering, she says, “I’m sorry. I’m sorry, I’m sorry…” And blames it on stress from work. And they lived happily ever after until the next scene.
Next time we meet Julia and Armando, Armando tries to make advances but Julia rebuffs him on the basis that they need to talk like real people and get to know each other and do stuff besides have sex. She goes on and on about it and says, “Look, Armando, you don’t know anything about me.” And he says, “Unlike Mariana, who knows everything, right?” And she says, “Well, yes.”
He says she’s out of line. But that he knows a lot of things about her. She asks like what. He says that for some strange reason that even she doesn’t understand she cries after making love, and that she doesn’t like it too gentle and that she likes it when he bites her right earlobe more than her left one. And that as if that weren’t enough, he also knows that she wonders what it would be like to be with a woman, especially Mariana. She looks at him but doesn’t deny it. He says, “That’s a lot, no? That’s also love.”
And then later on there’s a snippet of her having sex with him and when they’re done she falls onto the bed and when she looks to the side, she sees Mariana there. And I’ll just insert pictures.
But then she realizes that oops, Mariana’s all in her head.
