Before we start, I’d suggest getting a drink (or two). Maybe, also, do a shot. Unless you’re under age, in which case you should get something non-alcoholic. Modern Family recommends salted chocolate milk and Rizzoli & Isles recommends salted coffee. Salt is the new sugar. Write that down.
Last time on the Julia Confundicio Show … Julia cheated on Mariana with Armando because she couldn’t help herself. As a result, we will now be treated to 40 or so episodes of … wait, let me not get ahead of myself here.
Let’s begin. Episode 61 opens with foreshadowing in the form of the Mexican TV series Julia is starring in. It’s a series within a series, the plot of which mirrors the life and times of its lead actress who is actually a character within another show. Are you following? It’s deep, you guys.
I know it’s hard to grasp the subtle nuances of this series, but something tells me that we will be treated to a threesome in the near future and that it will involve a curly-haired guy and two brunettes.
Okay, panic. A little. But stay with me. And keep a towel with you at all times.
Over at casa Wilson Torres, Mariana is still excited that she and Hernan have nearly the same handwriting and she shares the revolutionary news with Julia. Julia ooohs and aaaahs at the post-it notes on the fridge and then announces that she has to go study her lines. Mariana offers to help, but Julia says that’s okay.
Mariana apologizes for acting like a child with abandonment issues and Julia says she thinks it’s good for them to do separate things once in a while. Mostly, Mariana is being her usual sweet, wonderful self and Julia is trying really hard to hide her guilt.
Suffer, Julia. SUFFERLIKEMARIANA.
Later on, Julia is having trouble with some of her lines because they are too much like her real life and her real life is confusing.
So conflicted, Julia is. I mean Natalia.
Mariana starts reading the lines in an effort to help Julia, but the lines end up confusing Julia even further and she ends up saying “Mariana” where she should’ve said “Karen” and then she spazzes out and say she can’t concentrate and that she needs to go study the lines at her mom’s.
