El Final del Paraíso, Season 4/Episode 40: Cero paciencia (Zero patience)

Monday, October 7th El Final del Paraíso spoilers indicate that Armando Cardona (Julián Trujillo) is handling business, Joana (Bárbara Najas) is talking trash on Doña Hilda Santana (Catherine Siachoque), and Doña Hilda gets a surprise when meeting with Marcela Pinzón (Giovanna Andrade) about the sex tape that leaked. We also have Yésica “La Diabla” Beltrán (Kimberly Reyes) putting more than just Alfonso Berrio’s (Leonardo Acosta) downfall in motion. If you missed it, let’s go over the highlights in today’s El Final del Paraíso recap.

El Final del Paraíso spoilers: Anti-bullying con

Cardonita visits Mano Negara’s (Juan Pablo Gamboa) lab rat as promised. He presents himself as a very proper guy with glasses and everything. He claims to be part of an anti-cyberbullying organization who wants to speak with her. Our lab rat is miserable, as no one wants anything to do with her after the video of her acting wild came out online.

Doing as he was told, he asks a bunch of questions about the situation and learns that a Mexican gave her a pill that did that to her. Aurelio “El Titi” Jaramillo (Gregorio Pernía), who is listening from a distance along with Pilar (Margarita Reyes) and Pablo Móron (Alí Humar), thinks it’s Ramón “Moncho” Montecarlo at first. When the lab rat mentions how short he was, they realize that it can’t be who they were thinking.

El Final del Paraíso spoilers: Invasion of privacy

Catalina Santana (Carmen Villalobos) rushes to Doña Hilda’s side after getting that tearful phone call last time. When Cata Grande arrives, she learns about the video. Cata Grande assures her she has nothing to be ashamed of, as she is an adult woman who can be with whoever she likes. However, she points out that Doña Hilda’s privacy was invaded and that the theft and posting of the video was a crime. She suggests they enlist Marcela’s help.

Doña Hilda is completely embarrassed, but she goes along with using Marcela for this, as she’s good at what she does. They hurry over to her place, where Marcela offers a sympathetic ear and affirms that this was a violation and it needs to be dealt with.

El Final del Paraíso spoilers: Alberio’s blunder

While they’re chatting, Albeiro Marín (Fabián Ríos) stops by to see his son. Doña Hilda is shocked by his appearance and they all jump in to help him. He’s urged to go to the hospital, but he refuses. As they talk, Albeiro begins interacting with the child and Doña Hilda suddenly realizes this is Albeiro’s son. She is angry and shocked that he would leave the child with Marcela instead of her. Albeiro tries to explain he was trying to protect her, but she isn’t hearing it. She races of with Lizeth Muriel (Margarita Torres) close behind, who is trying to explain she had no idea that this kid was Albeiro’s.

El Final del Paraíso spoilers: Que asco

Joana proves once again how disgusting she can be. First, she continues to play innocent in regards to the video leaking, and claims that Mateo Matiz (Steven Salcedo) must have done it. He does, after all, have a history of putting out embarrassing information about Doña Hilda. Salvatore Miranda (Martín Karpan) doesn’t seem as convinced. Doña Hilda had expressed her own doubts about this when discussing the video with Cata Grande and the others.

For her next trick, she then tries to pit Salvatore against his love when he is bemoaning the fact Doña Hilda doesn’t want to hear a thing from him. She claims that if Doña Hilda won’t show him a little trust, she’s not the woman he thought.

For the slimeball hat trick, she later enters Salvatore’s bedroom in a nighty and tries to kiss him while he sleeps. Wow. Seriously, this girl should have a big “danger” sign attached to her, because she’s obsessed to the extreme. She almost gets caught when his intercom goes off, but excuses herself and he’s totally none the wiser.

It turns out that Leticia (Marcela Posada) used to work for Salvatore and apparently thinks he can help her in her mission to learn what happened to her daughter. Unbeknownst to any of them, Esteban Calvo (Manuel Gómez) is watching the place and making his typical creepy threats. This show has a serious stalker problem.

El Final del Paraíso spoilers: Meeting Sombra

Cata Grande, Vanessa Salazar (Estefanía Gómez), Daniel Cerón Venegas (Juan Pablo Llano), and fellow reporter Rogelio meet with Edmundo “Sombra” Dorantes Borrero (Mauricio Cujar), Santiago Sanín (Roberto Manrique), José Luis Vargas (Francisco Bolívar), Arturo García López (Jason Lizarazo), and Zoraya Fuentes (Eileen Roca). They all have a mutual enemy. Sombra is not happy about the extra company, but Daniel insists that they’re trustworthy and can be very helpful in this situation. Rogelio, in particular, has been helping with the research into their mysterious puppet master.

El Final del Paraíso spoilers: Closer than it seems

Elsewhere, the debate prep continues as “Valera Montes” (Reyes) actually does her alleged job in securing the place alongside Natalia Bérmudez (Linda Baldrich). She and “Valeria” go back and forth a bit about evil being closer than it seems and how they finally agree on something.

Berrio is obviously dealing with serious nerves. This concerns Nelly Bayana (Lina Nieto) and Lucrecia Olivares (Eliana Diaosa), but he swears he is fine. Later on, “Valeria” and the rest all meet up in the dressing room. Berrio is still no better and “Valeria” asks Natalia to get him some water. What Natalia and the others don’t know is, “Valeria” had already dosed it with XY5. Proving our Diabla is the smartest person on this show, she hadn’t touched the bottle, instead using a napkin to open and dose it. This leaves Natalia as the only one who has touched this bottle. Nice knowing you, Natalia. At least until the truth about “Valeria” comes out.

El Final del Paraíso spoilers: Pieces in motion

Now that Berrio has taken the drug, “Valeria” stays behind while the others head to the stage. Berrio, by the way, isn’t looking any better and he’s starting to hallucinate. While “Valeria” is letting Mano Negra know via text that she’s done the deed, Lucrecia enters the room and surprises “Valeria”. Lucrecia apologizes and tells “Valeria” she can put her weapon down. It’s just her. “Valeria” warns her about sneaking up on people, while Lucrecia says that puffing on a vapor isn’t very professional. She actually believes “Valeria” is reminding her a lot of someone. “Valeria” is bored with that old song and tells her there are lots of people who look like others. They head toward the stage, where Berrio continues to hallucinate.
