so disgusted by how this ended


I´m going to have to watch El privilegio de amar in order to erase this novela from my mind. I know that when a novela is a remake they try to change some things so that it isn´t exactly the same, but Victoria ending up with the doctor instead of Osvaldo was a big heap of dung. She spent most if the series saying that Osvaldo was the love of her life and at the end she chooses Dr. Cures-It-All. Also, the vecindad scenes were just terrible and unnecessary.

I agree that this was not a good thing. Come on over to Caray!Caray! to read my stuff on the finale.

I also felt cheated on the villains' fates.

Venus, who are you over at Caray! Caray! ? I find what you say very interesting and well thought out. I usually agree with what you say, too.

I am currently vacationing in Mexico and missed the very last episode. I left my DVR set up to record it, but won´t get to see it for another 2 1/2 weeks. I did cheat and came on here in order to see whom Victoria would choose, but after going to bed with the doctor it was prettey obvious. I don´t yet know what happened to the villains, but I´ll find out what happens when I get home.

It's funny cause César Évora who plays the good doctor here was Father Juan de la Cruz Velarde in El privilegio de amar, the original series (for me anyways). You know that Triunfo del amor is just a remake right?
El privilegio de amar was just soooo good. I remember watching it and kinda hating Adela. I just didn't see why ppl thought she was beautiful or great or whatever, I thought she was whiny and annoying in times. But it's just me I guess...
Anyways... maybe the makers saw it as a chance to get Victoria (Luciana in ePdA) and Father Juan their happy ending?
Strange huh?
BUT I always thought that Victoria Ruffo and César Évora look good together (Madastra for example). Even when he plays a total douche ;D

El Privilegio de Amar was a remake. There are now 5 versions of this story.

I have been wondering whether Victoria Ruffo and Cesar Evora are required to be married to each other in the same novela. I think the original intent was to cast him as her husband; don't know why that didn't happen.

I know. That's why I said/wrote ''for me anyways'' ;)
I've never seen the original-original one.

I think they just look good together :D

What ticked me off is the fact that the people who should have gotten some kind of comeuppance didn't. After viewing the video of the kidnapping that was made and seeing Bernarda standing over her while she was upset about Maria being shot or thinking that Maria had been shot, Victoria should have been saying "Oh hell no! It's on now!" and bitch-slapped Bernardo clear across Mexico. But instead, all we get is bat sh!t crazy Bernarda dying in a plane crash off in the distance. I liked the ideal of her encountering God and him sending her to hell, but none of this happened. And as far as Guillermo and Ximena go, I think they got off easy too when they committed suicide rather than being made to pay for their crimes too. Yep, I'd say the ending pretty much sucked. And one more thing. I agree with you about the vecindad scenes being terrible and unnecessary. I pretty much would fast forward through them. And I wish Naty had ended up with either Fabian or Alonso instead of Dumbho. I liked the character until she made that really stupid move. After her makeover, she could have gotten a hotter man whole wasn't as shallow as that idiot butt-stick was.

I have a lot of closing remarks on this series at Caray! Caray! so I won't repeat all of them here. What I do feel a need to comment on is that while most of us want to see the villains pay in a way that brings satisfaction to their surviving victims, it's not realistic to expect it.

Yes, I think Victoria should have had a chance to bitchslap Bernarda clear across Mexico, but look at the behavior of the police in that series: Had she done that Victoria would have been the one to pay.

Since Mexico doesn't execute criminals officially there is no earthly punishment adequate to deal with Bernarda's crimes. You'd think that we'd be able by now to see her entering hell (like Marcela in Eva Luna) but I guess Televisa needs to be nudged about this.

As for Dumbho, he is a popular athlete in Mexico, which accounts for him getting the girl in the series. I completely agree with you about this.

Could someone tell me what happened to Ximena? I saw what she did to Guillermo in the final episode but didn't catch how her character ended up. The novela was getting boring towards the last few weeks and I really didn't pay attention to it.

reply

She and Guillermo were being chased by the police until they reached the edge of a cliff. They stopped long enough to slit each other's wrists before driving the car over the cliff. When the car reached the bottom it crashed and burned.

I know. I've heard from people I've worked with who are from Mexico that the police are very corrupt there. And look what happened to Bernarda in prison. The guards went from not putting up with any of her nonsense to being her bitches and the inmates turned on the one lady who had been giving Bernarda a hard time. Sounds kind of unrealistic to me.

What bothered me the most about Bernarda's brushes with the law was the scene when her former nanny was being questioned about the kidnapping of Maria's baby right in front of Bernarda. I can't believe this is normal procedure in Mexico (or anywhere else).

It shouldn't be. You would think that he would question her in private or take her to the police station. Or question them both at the same time, which wouldn't be a good ideal.

You said it, this takes place in Mexico.

"but look at the behavior of the police in that series: Had she done that Victoria would have been the one to pay"

Real mexican cops are like that, they have this superficial "moral-quiet" look but tend to go against who need justice.

I rememeber when they tried to get the money, they sorta hinted about the violence in Mexico. Max was like like unfortunately things like this happen in Mexico and the conversation went on.
