Nunca te dire Adios
Episode 5, Sep 21, 2007
Maki agrees to work again with Francisco on his commercial in Sauce. While he is trying to rebuild her trust, Fanny calls his cell phone, talking about wedding plans, while Maki looks on suspiciously, and Francisco makes an excuse that it is a work related call, then he kisses Maki.
At Makiâ€™s house that night, the priest counsels them â€“the padre asks when the wedding is going to be â€“Francisco says when the pelicula is done, in about 6 mos. The padre then has the two make vows of eternal love, and he conducts a â€śbenecidaâ€ť, and Francisco gives Fanny a ring. Later, Maki and Francisco passionately kiss. She is falling for him.
In Lima, Saul receives an envelope with the nude photos (from Marina in Sauce) that Francisco took of Maki. He waits in Fannyâ€™s bedroom and when she arrives she is disturbed that he is there. He gives her the envelope, she makes him leave the room, and she opens it and looks disgusted and feels her stomach as she looks anxiously at the pictures. There is also a note from Marina saying these pictures describe what Francisco has been doing in Sauce.
Fanny, drunk, with drink in hand and upset, shows the pictures to her mother, who is taken aback. Fanny tells her mother, Esther, that the reason she pushed the wedding along to be in one month is because she is pregnant, by Francisco, though he doesnâ€™t know it yet. Esther goes to Sauce where she sees for herself that it is true, that Francisco and Maki are â€śtogetherâ€ť. Esther checks herself in to los Morichales ranch in Sauce and asks around about what is going on with Francisco and Maki, and of course the whole town knows about them.
Later, working on the lancha, Maki gives Francisco a watch and pendant that was her fatherâ€™s and upon opening it, on the inside cover is a picture of Maki when she was a little girl. Francisco is hesitant to accept such an important keepsake, but Maki insists.
Esther sends for someone to bring Francisco to her at the Morichales ranch where she confronts Francisco about the photos of Maki and that the word about town is that he and Maki are amantes. She says if this continues, he will have to forget about the wedding, working for them, and about the pelicula. Francisco admits that it is true. Esther is outraged, Francisco wants to know if Fanny knows about his affair with Maki, and Ester says â€śnoâ€ť, but she has seen the photos. Francisco wants to tell Fanny the truth, then Esther tells him Fanny is pregnant. She says the truth would kill her.
In Lima, Fanny is going hysterical, and takes some pills. Saul tries to comfort her in her room, but she is going ballistic. She passes out on the bed and Saul calls Ester. He counts the pills in the jar and calculates she has only taken a few. Esther tells Francisco, taking complete control of the situation, that Fanny is her only child and means everything to her. She doesnâ€™t want Fanny to ever know about his affair with Maki, that he is to return to Lima, and that he will still do his film, but Saul will be in charge of the production, including casting decisions, and any time that he travels to do work in the future, that Fanny is to accompany him. Francisco agrees to this while he daydreams of Maki. Esther then forces Francisco to stay with her at los Morichales, keeping him from returning to see Maki, who waits in her house for Francico, but he never shows up.
Francisco returns to Lima, where he attends an important press conference concerning the upcoming film, narrated by Fanny, with Don Marcos (her father), Don Humberto, Francisco, and Saul in the limelight. Each of them signs the contract. As Francisco starts to sign, he gets a call on his cell phone. He excuses himself to everyoneâ€™s dismay, and takes the call in private, and it is Maki, who wants to know why he left without showing up last night and saying goodbye. Francisco fills her full of excuses. Maki wants to know who a woman was who confronted her and called her a prostitute and Francisco says he has no idea, that it could have been one of his business associates. Soon, Fanny finds him, taking Francisco back to the press conference, and Maki is upset, telling the padre he hung up on her. Francisco finally sings the deal, to Fannyâ€™s satisfaction.
Marina shows Maki a press release on the film announcement, showing a picture of Juan Francisco with his fiancĂ©e, Fanny, and that they will be marrying in a church in Lima within a month, to the surprise and disgust of Maki.
One month later in Lima â€“as everyone prepares for the wedding, Maki gets the padre to take her there to try and locate the wedding. She calls Franciscoâ€™s cell phone and Franciscoâ€™s sister, Angela answers and tells Maki they are about to marry. Crying, Maki insists, to the protest of the padre, to find the church. Angela told her any cab driver could take them there, as it is a well-known church, so they take a cab. On the way to the wedding, Maki passes out. The padre directs the cab driver to take them to a clinic, where the doctor examines her and says it was likely an attack of the nerves. Maki, again to the padreâ€™s protest, uses the doctorâ€™s cell phone and tries again calling Francisco. His voice mail answers, and she leaves a scathing message, saying she was stupid for believing in him, that she never wants to see him again, and she says, â€śYo si te dio adios, para siempre!â€ť
Francisco and Fanny are married, as everyone applauds and looks on with delight, with the exception of Fannyâ€™s jealous, obsessive perverse cousin, Saul.
Back at the clinic, the doctor comes back with tests results, telling Maki that she is going to be a mama.
