Carmen and Cristina are unsure whether to let Dora in. They've long thought they shouldn't fraternize with the Campos family because of William.However, Carmen nods and Cristina risks opening the door, “Hello, Dora!”Dora is ready to demolish the walls and barriers, “Good afternoon, Cristina! I came to see the new mother and the new resident of Lagoon City. Can I enter?”“Of course, come in and make yourself comfortable.” Carmen passes by.Dora addresses Carmen, “Hello, dear. Have you mastered the art of breastfeeding?”“Yes, Dora, thank you so much for coming.”Dora sits on another couch, “I think we need to talk about a topic that is making me upset.”Cristina cleverly asks, “Why are we going to talk if it upsets you?”Dora doesn't get the word out, “No jokes, Cris. Looks like you already know what it's about. When we wanted to throw a party to celebrate Melissa and Kelvin’s engagement, obviously Daryl invited Diane, who invited you guys.”It's Carmen and Cristina who get awkward.
Dora's crucial question takes Cristina and Carmen by surprise. During the silence between the two, the radio plays “Waterfalls”, by TLC.As the owner of the theory, Cristina decides to assume, “Dora, the Chaves family saw fit to get away from you after the embarrassment we went through regarding Pamela trying to have full custody of Caio.”Dora is shocked and gaping, and then voices, “What? Why did you decide to walk away? It was Pamela who came up with the whole idea!”“And William is desperately looking forward to getting back in touch with us?”“Ehr... not him, but William isn't the full Campos family. There's Simeon, Melissa, my grandchildren, and I... we miss you and we don't hold a grudge, Cristina.”Carmen is forced to admit, “Though Tiago warned you.”Dora giggles, “Oh, I imagine. Tiago is a devoted friend of Josias and, in an instance, ends up being our friend as well. Guys, let's break down these barriers and get back to what we were.”“Are you sure, Dora?” Cristina wants to
Dora crosses her arms upon learning that Pamela's evil plan came out of Cristina's pure head.“Cris, this can only be bullshit.”“I'm sorry, my friend!” Cristina comically drops to her knees for Dora, “By the time I was informed that William was causing problems with drinking and call girls, I didn't think twice.”“You know the work it took us to try to convince him to stop self-destructing...” Dora says, “We thought he was going to get this AIDS thing the TV can't stop talking about.”“Well, if William has repented and returned to being a good father to Caio, I'm satisfied. And I hope they can forgive me one day.”Dora asserts, “They'll only forgive you if they never find out that you came up with the plan!”“And then will you tell them?”Dora is suspenseful as the soap operas she watches, but then smiles, “The secret will be safe with me.”Carmen and Cristina relieve themselves.“Thank you, Dora.” Carmen thanks, “We hope in time to get back together like we used to be.”“Now I wante
The next day, Dora is mopping the living room floor while humming the song “Lifted” by Lighthouse Family. Simeon passes her and likes to see his wife calm.“How nice to see you in a good mood, my love. Did something happen? Will found another decent girl?”“I think that will take some time.” Dora giggles, “I talked to Carmen and Cristina yesterday. We were right, honey, there was no christening for James on the day of Melissa and Kelvin's engagement.”Simeon gets upset, “And what did they say in their defense?”“They were embarrassed to show up because of Pamela.”“Oh, but what happened wasn’t—”Dora stops cleaning and smiles, “Here we have to be patient, my love. The idea came out of Cristina’s mind.”Simeon is a little upset, “Now I understand their guilt.”Dora smiles again to smooth things over, “Finally, we forgave each other. Pamela is no longer with us and Cristina learned her lesson. We will be friends again and everything will be fine.”Dora opens the door for the wind to dry
Jack and Veronica were talking on the phone. She was very excited about the interview she had at LCN and is buoyant with hope.“Jack, you needed to see that dark, hot director! I think I could fall in love with him, so he would give me major roles in LCN soap operas!”Jack takes it all as a joke, “Why don't you fall in love with him sincerely?”“Well, you know the perfect marriage between famous people only works in the commercials we shot,” Veronica speaks irresponsibly.Francisco enters the room and turns on the radio. The song “Alright” by Supergrass makes their apartment even more lively.“But you can be the exception, having a perfect and lasting marriage with Mr. Oliveira." Jack hints.“No, I prefer to leave the doors open for now.” Veronica implies that she wants to marry Jack.But Jack doesn't take the hint, “Okay, mate, I'm praying for you. Now I have to go, they found a replacement for you at the agency.”“Who's the bitch—” Veronica realizes that Jack has already hung up. Sh
Melissa is talking to Flávia and Isabel about the fear she has about Angela and Uélton.“Nothing gets out of my head that that weird girl wanted something bad with my dear big-eared.”Melissa hides her laugh by covering her mouth with her hand, “Cousin, don't be paranoid. Come, let's go to the studio where my soap opera is being recorded.”The three ladies go to the protagonist's house. She is poor, but she will fall in love with the rich heartthrob.Flávia calms down when she sees the scenery, “You know I'm an unconditional fan of your show, Melissa. You look like you were born for this.”“Well, thank you very much.”Flávia quickly turns to Isabel, “Your soap opera is also good, dear mother-in-law!”Isabel laughs, “I'm not jealous.”Flávia sits on one of the sofas and the camera is right in front of her, “So this is where our heroine thrills viewers with her beautiful performance.”“Exactly.” Melissa feels that Flávia is deflecting the subject, “You know, Flávia, I think you and Uélt
At LCN studios, Melissa and Isabel are shocked when they discover that someone was recording Flávia. The lady gets up from the couch and goes over to the cameraman.“What kind of clowning is this, young man?”The cameraman is startled, “Excuse me, weren't you ladies auditioning for new characters? I thought it was part of the selection process!”Isabel calms down and laughs, “It's not that. Flavia is my daughter-in-law and she just sat on the couch. We were talking that had nothing to do with 'Love Just Happens'."“In this case, ‘Sweet Love’.” The cameraman kindly corrects her.“Diego, don't worry, Flavia won't be upset. It was a misunderstanding.” Melissa solves the problem.Flávia is annoyed, “If my husband finds out that I'm kissing soap opera heartthrobs, he'll ask for a divorce!”Diego ventures, “But you never thought of being an actress?”“Shall we talk somewhere else, Melissa?” Flavia asks angrily.Melissa looks at her watch and again remembers that it was a gift from Josias, “
Thursday. Flávia serves breakfast and finds Uélton checking Everaldo's phone in the phone book.“Looking for whose phone, my love?”“Everaldo’s number, but it looks like he hasn't been able to get this important technology yet.” Uélton bitterly closes the phone book.“I look for you, father.” Reuben offers himself.Uélton pats his son's head, “You worry about eating your cereal to go to school.”Flávia joins them and helps herself to coffee with milk.“Honey, yesterday something very funny happened. A cameraman thought I was in a selection process for characters in Melissa's soap opera and recorded me while I was talking to your mother and my cousin.”“Are you going to be an actress, Mom?” Reuben's eyes are twinkling.Uélton chuckles, “No, son, your mother will only kiss the heartthrob here.”Flavia is slightly uncomfortable to see her suspicion come to fruition, “Would it be that bad?”Uélton shrugs, “Didn't you say that Veronica Montanha was there looking for vacancies? Let them hir
