El Final del Paraíso, Season 4/Episode 34: La súplica (The plea)
The Friday, September 27th El Final del Paraíso recap finds Lizeth Muriel (Margarita Torres) dropping a bomb that can shake the entire country, the cartels deal with the “death” of Aurelio “El Titi” Jaramillo (Gregorio Pernía), and Doña Hilda Santana (Catherine Siachoque) gets help in the search for Catalina Marín Santana (Carolina Gaitán) and Hernán Darío Bayona (Juan Pablo Urrego). We also find that Alfonso Berrio (Leonardo Acosta) is ready to get back to work, while Mano Negra (Juan Pablo Gamboa) gets a plea. If you missed it, let’s get to the El Final del Paraíso spoilers.
El Final del Paraíso spoilers: Bomb dropped
Cata Grande is home watching a news report about the phone failures last episode that’s being attributed to a potential cyber attack when she gets a call from the office. Lizeth is there and wants to see her. Now. She’s apparently been waiting outside all night, and promises game-changing info.
When Cata Grande arrives, Lizeth presents the videos she stole from the house. They show big time players in the country indulging in Dayana “La Demonia” Muriel’s (Elianis Garrido) clients. One of them is Roberto Conde (Alejandro Martínez). Cata Grande is disgusted by what she sees and damns Demonia and all the other pimps. Lizeth is just as upset. She claims to have hours more of footage showing other big-wigs doing the same. She thinks this has earned her a chance with the DEA. Cata Grande appreciates the info, and agrees it’s damning for all shown, but she has to think about this. Lizeth is clearly full of rage, and this worries Cata Grande. They’re not vigilantes.
El Final del Paraíso spoilers: The team’s back together
Later, Vanessa Salazar (Estefanía Gómez) shows up at the office with a recovered Natalia Bérmudez (Linda Baldrich). Cata Grande is overjoyed to have the team back together again. After they greet each other, Cata Grande wants to introduce them to Lizeth. She says that Lizeth is an “aspiring agent.” Lizeth is practically jumping for joy, but Cata Grande advises her not to get too excited. She’s getting a chance, but she still has to pass the training. Cata Grande asks Vanessa and Natalia to help her with this.
El Final del Paraíso spoilers: Not ready to go
Albeiro Marin (Fabián Ríos) is training today for his next task: underground fighting. If he succeeds, Yésica “La Diabla” Beltrán (Kimberly Reyes) will give him his next dose of the HIV cure. About that. He might need to start listening to everyone and get that second opinion, because he sure doesn’t look like he’s going to do the job. He’s doing okay enough as he’s put through some strength exercises, but when it’s time to actually fight, he’s a mess. It’s hilarious after the bravado he was showing. He continues to show himself as the weak and useless fool we’ve thought he is since No Hay.
El Final del Paraíso spoilers: Search is on
Salvatore Miranda (Martín Karpan) and Doña Hilda are talking about why she loves fashion design when a guest arrives. Their talk of helping woman escape and feel pretty with a design is replaced with a discussion on the disappearances. Private Investigator Joaquin Quintero (Jaime Serrano) is handed pictures of both the missing, then asks about potential enemies. We crack up at Doña Hilda’s assertion that they have nothing but enemies for a long time now. She says they could fill one of his notebooks with all of them, but she has a name to focus on—Yésica. No mention of the girl who raped Nachi and tried to have them both killed. The one who is now a cartel member and tried to kill Cata Grande. Wow.
On a related not, Joana (Bárbara Najas) happens across Mateo Matiz (Steven Salcedo) in the gym, where she’d been playing the ever-loyal assistant by filling Salvatore in on all the orders for Doña Hilda’s collection, as well as the request for sizes. She greets Mateo by asking if he’s hear to lift his butt, and he counters that she’s probably here for their program that helps one’s conscience. Meow. We love these two going at it.
She tells Mateo she has some pictures that could make an adult flick she’s ready to give him. Mateo is not interested, and tells Joana to leave Doña Hilda alone (again). He is over this, and reminds her they are two single people who are doing nothing wrong.
El Final del Paraíso spoilers: Downward spiral continues
Her talk with Salvatore before the investigator arrived had also been focused on Mariana Sanín Santana (Stephania Duque), who we were referring to above) and how sweet she was to Doña Hilda. Mariana had promised once to dote all over her, but those days appear long gone, despite Mariana demanding not a hair on abuela’s head be touched. She’s too out of it now. Her mind is not only warped by whatever she’s sucking down in that always-present cup, but by nightmares of Titi’s murder. She’s completely losing it. Ramón “Moncho” Montecarlo (Mauro Mauad) thinks that she should be happy. He’s gone, and has no chance of taking the kid. He laughs off her pain, claiming she never loved him anyway. She counters that she loved him in her own way. She just hated him throwing her mother and other women in her face.
Later on, he goes through a similar talk with Demonia. She apparently isn’t exactly thrilled about Titi’s death, either. He and Yésica are both amused/annoyed by this tonight. Moncho has another concern here, which is Catalina Jaramillo Santana, and Demonia wonders why. It’s not like she’s his, nor is Mariana. He doesn’t exactly agree on that last one. When he tries to get more out of her about her thing with Titi, she refuses to talk.
El Final del Paraíso spoilers: Funeral planning
Speaking of Titi, he’s back with Armdano “Cardonita” Cardona (Julián Trujillo) and Pablo Móron (Alí Humar) discussing his own funeral. There’s flowers and stuff everywhere, but there’s one detail left: a body. Pilar (Margarita Reyes) has that covered. She’s planning to use her chemist genius to make a perfect mask that will be put on some poor, unfortunate soul.
Móron amuses by telling Cardonita to stop drooling over Pilar, then scolding Titi for kissing her in front of them. It’s rude. Duh, Titi. Anyway, now that this is all getting settled, they have one more problem. They need a new place to stay to make sure that their enemies can’t find them. Cardonita has a place his father used to use they can take shelter in.
El Final del Paraíso spoilers: Facing the past
Edmundo “Sombra” Dorantes Borrero (Mauricio Cujar) is losing patience with Zoraya Fuentes (Eileen Roca). This concerns Santiago Sanin (Roberto Manrique), who hates Zoraya for what she did to him, but he doesn’t want Sombra doing things his way. Lucky for her, she had decided that she was ready to face her past mistake and speak to Berrio.
They want to know how they’re going to get to him, to which Zoraya replies, “You’re the criminals, figure it out.” Wow. That might have been the one time she was actually amusing and not painful to watch. The character, that is. The actress is doing her best with a totally hateful character.
El Final del Paraíso spoilers: Back to work
Berrio gets the news from “Agent Valeria” (Reyes) that he is getting sprung from the hospital. His duo of doubters arrive and are dismayed to see the source of their distrust there. But they continue to support him in his return to work. That includes a big dinner filled with Party members and other supporters.
Diabla is planning an assignment of her own. She’s going to go to Cata Grande as “Valeria” and rat out their rival’s location.
El Final del Paraíso spoilers: Hail Mary plea
Mano Negra (Juan Pablo Gamboa) is watching the TV report about this and not exactly thrilled with this news. He calls Conde and tells him to meet with him about the campaign. He still keeps assuring that Conde has this in the bag, and Conde continues to doubt it.
The call is cut short by another pressing issue: their chemist, Santos Castellanos (Luis Carlos Fuquen). Mano Negra is about to pump him full of drugs to make him overdose when Santos makes a desperate move to save himself. He pleads for a chance to show he’s not useless by creating a drug that will be better that XY4. Obviously thinking he’s not nothing to lose, Mano Negra agrees.
