- Seriously booming.
I love this look.
Very impressive, Gloria.

- What's going on? - We need to talk.
- What's up? Diego, I told you not to visit the cabaret until I say otherwise.
The impersonators want to lynch you.
I want to check the finances.
They're better than ever.
And it's only been two weeks, so if we settle my mom's will, the flower shop will be ours.
[phone ringing.]
[Diego.]
I'm glad.
- To be honest, I want to turn the page.
- Diego, I'll check how much money we have in the safe so far.
Mind turning around? I still haven't forgotten about that little stunt you pulled.
Let's not be too trusting, okay? Too much trust can stink.
You know the saying: Good fences make good neighbors.
A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES [moans.]
[grunts.]
[gasps.]
- Oh, you scared me! - Oh, no.
I didn't know you were here.
- Oh, no Delia - Are you feeling okay? I dreamt I was swimming in this huge wave pool, but the waves kept getting bigger and I was losing my strength.
And then, the waves overpowered me as I sank deeper and deeper.
It was horrible.
I think you're carrying around too much guilt, my child.
Getting a priest to quit the church is a serious matter.
Wait, speaking of Simón.
What the hell? He's been ignoring my texts since the last time I saw him.
Do you know what's going on? No.
But if he doesn't want to talk, you can tell me.
And in exchange I can tell you about some very recent relapses.
Recent relapses? - Yes.
- You? - Yes.
- What happened? It was one of the smurfs from the flock.
But I didn't even enjoy it.
- What? - It doesn't matter, never mind.
Are you serious, Delia? - [Delia.]
Mm-hm.
- [snickers.]
Please [grunting.]
That was great.
I loved it! I could feel everything, every breath, every scent.
Like sex in the dark, but better, because I did it with you.
I want to feel everything like you do, I loved this experience.
I love you.
I love you.
You don't have to say it back if you don't feel the same.
No, I do feel the same way, it's just that I can't say it back yet because I haven't been honest with you.
What what do you mean? My beautiful Chiquis.
I got carried away the other day and I kissed Elena.
But I swear I didn't feel anything.
Still, I had to tell you.
It was only a peck, but it helped me realize that I love you.
I can't believe it.
[laughing.]
It feels so good to say out loud.
I know you're angry right now, and you won't say it back, but I love you.
[phone ringing.]
Paulina, we have to talk.
[Paulina.]
What's going on? I don't feel good.
I don't feel good at all.
What's the matter? None of the impersonators know where we're standing.
What's all this cabaret slash whorehouse business? No, no, Paulina.
Calm down.
I mean we're biting our nails here.
It's not up to me.
That's all Diego, those decisions are all his.
I'm powerless, working here like a mere accountant.
No, sweetie.
[phone ringing.]
Sorry, but I have to make a call.
Would you mind? Don't be offended! You know my door is always open.
Don't act like Paulina's ex, you're too sensitive.
But Paulina! Don't flip out, Paulina.
[Alejo.]
Paulina, sorry to insist.
I'm sure you're busy.
I've been calling to say goodbye.
I'm going back to Spain.
There's so much I wanted to say to you, but maybe it's not the right time, or you have better things to do.
Anyway, it's been amazing knowing you.
I hope we see each other again.
No, wait! I'm on my way! Can I come in? Sure, you're all wet.
You wouldn't pick up, so I thought [Paulina.]
I don't know why I do that.
[Alejo.]
It doesn't matter now.
All right, come here.
[both chuckling.]
I'm sorry, I shouldn't have.
It's all right.
It's all right.
Why are you going back to Spain? I'm falling for you.
- Oh, please.
- Listen to me, I'm serious.
From that first day in the cemetery.
I was very nervous.
And not much makes you nervous after beating cancer.
That's why I'm leaving.
I can't be near you and not kiss you.
Then, don't leave.
You'll miss your flight.
I hadn't booked it yet.
Everything else I said is true, I just had to force you to make a decision.
- Hey! - I don't regret anything.
I'm trying to make Julián happy.
And Paulina.
But Julián is depressed, and Paulina resents me, even if she says she forgave me.
I'm not sure what I'm doing.
Diego, what would make you happy? Hm? Have you realized you enjoy having this family treat you poorly? Sorry, but the sock puppet is freaking me out.
Why? I'm trying to help.
I don't know why.
I'm sorry.
Maybe, since your family is trash and they kicked you out for coming out as gay, now you're trying to belong to the De la Mora family.
No, all I want is for Julián to be happy.
I want us to start a family.
Adoption? Yeah, I know the process sounds impossible.
[yawning.]
I so sleepy! Sorry, but I couldn't help overhearing.
If you're interested, I can tell you all about other procedures.
What do you say? Goddamn it.
[applause.]
I'm not sure about this, I feel like something's missing.
No, Mica, don't worry.
They love your cuteness.
And they bloody love you being an orphan.
But it's not enough to win.
I'm not the only orphan.
Look, I have a plan, but not if you're squeamish.
It's a plan to get rid of one of the contestants.
So, what's your plan? Spit it out.
Break someone's knees.
- There's no other choice.
- That's too much.
I'm not cheating my way to the top.
I was joking.
Rosita, the dress looks great.
Thanks.
What's wrong with you? Why did you give her my dress? You're supposed to look out for me.
But I am, you look great.
Sorry I can't offer you much.
How about some water? No, don't worry.
Thanks for seeing me.
No, thank you for coming.
I needed someone to talk to.
I got fired, and since I'm broke, I can't afford this place.
Simón is ignoring my texts and I don't know why.
I really miss my mom.
I bet my mom would be so disappointed with me.
I could've sworn Simón and I were doing great.
I even thought him being a priest was a good thing, because it meant he was ready to settle down.
I don't understand anything anymore.
Nothing in my life makes sense right now.
I used to feel like I was great at everything, but now I feel useless.
- I'm useless.
- You're not useless.
I I was even considering starting a family.
Hey Now that you mention it, there's something I want to tell you.
That's right, sorry! You wanted to talk to me, and here I am going on about my problems.
Don't worry about it.
[Alejo.]
What are you thinking about? About how I'm going to tell my siblings about this.
You see, I told them to leave you alone.
So, they still think you were my mom's lover.
I don't get it.
Virginia never told you about me? We didn't talk to her at all during that whole time.
Did she tell you about us? Her? She loved telling stories from when you were little.
- Really? - Yeah.
Like what? She told me about how you made your siblings practice Timbirache's choreography.
- Was it - Timbiriche.
Right.
That's why my family is messed up, I did irreparable damage.
She told me she always clapped as if it were the first time.
- That's true, she did.
- Mm-hm.
I don't think I should tell them about us just yet, right? It's up to you.
There's no easy way to say this, so I'm just going to say it.
Mm.
I want Julián and I to start a family.
And I want you to be our surrogate.
Artificial insemination.
The baby would be yours and mine, but for Julián and Diego.
That way, it would have both our blood.
[chuckles.]
I don't know, Diego.
What you're asking is too liberal.
And I'm pretty open-minded.
Trust me, I get it.
But, all prejudice aside, I see this as a chance to make sense of everything.
Everything.
Maybe this was meant to be.
Please think about it, because if it's not with you, I don't want to do this.
I now give you, Rosita's angelic voice! [Bruno.]
Bravo! [singing in Italian.]
[applause.]
Bravo, bravo! As the saying goes: "It's Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.
" One father, one mother, and children.
That's a family.
Anything other than that is simply not a family.
[knocking.]
- Have you sinned, my child? - I'm not your child, prick.
Have a little respect, please.
We're in the Lord's house.
How dare you disappear on me like that, Simón.
Men of God can't ghost people.
What's wrong with you? You're right, of course.
I apologize, Elena.
The thing is, I want you I see you in my darkest, filthiest moments.
I see you here and I'm like: "Do it now.
Our souls be damned.
" But no, no.
I love God more than anything.
And yes, I sinned.
I sinned with you, but God's mercy is boundless.
- Fuck off.
- Elena! I hate how childish you are.
You're like a teenager in a cassock.
You have no idea who you are or what you want, so you hide yourself behind God.
But not even Luis Miguel's mom is as lost as you are.
I'm actually curious about that.
All right, be honest.
Do you think that acting repentant means there's no consequences? Wake the fuck up.
Take some responsibility, Simón.
I'm ready to take the next step, but if you refuse to commit, I'll do it on my own.
So think carefully because I'm about to make a big decision, and there's no going back.
You coward.
Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with thee.
Are you all right, Pau? All this has to stop, Paulina.
That's precisely what I wanted to talk to you about.
What is it, Pau? It's Diego He just did the most terrible thing in his long list of atrocities.
Did he fire you? No, but he hired new talent.
Why? What the hell? I know.
It pains me to tell you this, but I care deeply for you.
And He hired a new Paulina Rubio.
No, Paulina.
You know that no one, no one portrays that character better than I do.
The Golden Girl said so herself! I know, but what can I do? Diego is really pressuring me.
With the success we're having, he's getting more ambitious, more creative even.
But I stood up for you.
Yes, I did.
Did he reconsider? He said you can stay, but you have to find another character.
And he says your character can't be Juliet Venegas.
Oh, no, Paulina! This is fucked up.
You know I admire Julieta, she's everything to me.
Especially her first two albums.
Yes.
I know.
I know, this is terrible.
It's terrible, sister.
But there's nothing I can do.
Who knows what Diego's thinking? You know, with all this happening, I'm scared the police will raid us.
Sometimes I think I should report this myself, because if the cops come first, my reputation should be trashed.
No way, Jose.
This is making me so anxious.
Don't worry, Pau.
I didn't know you were under so much pressure.
You have no idea.
Come here, Paulina.
I appreciate you so much.
So do I.
Welcome back! This is the most anticipated night on Mexico's Most Talented! And the most feared.
We're going to learn our judges' verdict.
Are you nervous? Let's ask our jury to name the two finalists for Mexico's Most Talented.
Let's start with Moëbius.
This was a difficult decision.
We had to go back and forth.
But our first finalist is: Rosita! Rosita, the first finalist on Mexico's Most Talented.
Show her some love! But we're not done yet.
We have a second finalist.
Go ahead, Gloria.
You startled me just now.
Do I have to name the finalist? Look at their little faces, so endearing.
Don't look at me.
- No, no - Come on, Gloria.
All right, the last finalist in this competition is Sorry, I can't.
I'm passing the ball to my colleague here.
No problem.
Judge Elpidio Vazquez will now reveal the second finalist.
Elpidio.
[Elpidio.]
This wasn't easy at all, but based on their talents, we think the second finalist should be: Rommel the Magician.
We have our second finalist! Rommel the Magician! This concludes our show, tune in next week! We could've just shattered Rosita's kneecaps.
This is all your fault.
He gave my dress to that skank and I had to wear this shit.
She's winning because of you.
- Mica, but - She has a point.
What point? Hang on, Mica.
Bloody hell.
[doctor.]
Artificial insemination used to be something straight out of science fiction.
But many people do it today, many couples like yourselves.
Yeah So what's the timeframe we're working with? This is a price chart.
It ranges from the lowest, a single attempt, to several attempts.
[Diego.]
What in the? It's so expensive.
There's always plan B: just keep trying.
- What do you mean? - Yeah, keep trying what? Through intercourse.
Ah! - Oh, right.
- Vaginal penetration.
- Of course.
- Sure.
It's what you've been doing, right? - No.
- Yeah.
- Yeah? Yes.
- Yes, yes.
Ah.
Ah-ha.
Yes.
Good morning.
Good morning, sir miss.
How can I help you? I want to file a criminal complaint against Diego Olvera.
[Elena.]
I'll just put the keycard here to get some light.
At least we won't have to try too much, since I'm ovulating.
Plus I'm pretty sure I'm very fertile.
I haven't been to a motel in years.
Yeah, me neither.
Ooh.
It's been quite a while.
Yeah Hey are you sure about this? Well, anything for family, right? Of course.
Do you need to get comfortable? What? Should I get changed? Do you want something different? I don't really No, I mean, maybe you need No, I mean.
It's just sex, right? A quickie, mechanical, in-and-out, right? Nothing more.
Yeah, yeah, you're right, let's keep it simple.
- Yeah.
- Exactly.
I'll go to the bathroom, okay? All right.
Okay.
[beep.]
BEST SEXUAL POSITIONS FOR CONCEPTION - Diego! - Yeah? Did you undress yet? - Just a second.
- Okay.
I'm ready.
Okay.
We should kiss, right? It would be weird if we didn't.
Yes.
Let's see.
Maybe we don't have to.
I kind of need to.
Okay, fine.
All right, let's try this.
Sit down.
Okay.
Just tell me honestly how you like to be touched.
It's just that I don't know how men touch each other.
I mean, like you normally would.
Or maybe you like it rough.
You know, like this like No, no.
Wait.
Wait, no, no.
Sorry.
- No hitting.
I mean, not right now.
- Oh, okay.
Yeah, got it.
I don't know, could you be a little more gentle? - Okay.
Gently? Okay.
- Let's take it slow.
Yes.
You can even tickle me.
- That's crazy! - What? I love being tickled.
- Really? Wow! - Yeah, I love it.
Like, it gives me the chills, you know? When I get tickled down there, I come so fast.
[chuckles.]
So But I'm the one who should come, right? Yeah, of course.
I don't want you to do it to me, I was just sharing.
Well, good to know.
[both laugh.]
Yeah.
Yeah.
So - I'll tickle you, okay? - All right.
I'll tickle you too.
Okay.
Hey, your skin is so smooth, do you use lotion? Coconut oil.
- No way! - Yeah.
They say coconut oil is good for the skin.
The best.
Just like an actor Who never veers off script It's no one's business but ours If you never give, how can you take? Love is no one's business but ours She looks just like the real deal.
Even the hair is dry like hers.
I'm impressed.
I don't know.
What's wrong, Julián? Are you okay? I'm not.
What is it? Diego has been acting strange, he's hiding something from me.
That's no one's business but yours, I can't butt in.
Well, I haven't been honest with him either.
I mean Oh, Juli.
Praise, praise, praise the Lord.
Diego! We have to talk.
I've been a prostitute all these months, but I'm stopping now.
What? - No more lies, all right? - Everybody freeze! [all screaming.]
Silence! Silence! Where is the owner? Diego! What did you do? - I'm the owner.

You're charged with pimping.
Take him away.

[Roberta.]
This is the result of all your efforts.
