Amoreira leads Francisco to the cell where Shirley was awaiting trial. She is disheveled, her blouse torn, and the policemen's fingerprints are still visible on her arms.“SHIRLEY!” Francisco is horrified, “What have they done to you? Did the guards rape you?”“No.” Shirley responds in a voice that sounds like a whisper, “I made a big fuss out of the lobby and the guards dragged me away by force.”Amoreira communicates to her boyfriend, “According to the sheriff who registered the arrest, Mrs. Mountain had the aggravating factor of resisting arrest. For that alone, she could face two months to two years in prison, depending on the severity and the judge's good mood.”The 'judge's good mood' part was added in slapstick by the fun detective.But Francisco gets more desperate, “Shirley, did you resist arrest? As far as I know, the mere nervousness of being arrested does not constitute a crime, unless the detainee resorts to violence. You...”Shirley turns her face to the left and refuses
Francisco and Shirley are now alone. Passing jailers found romantic the sight of Francisco holding his beloved's hands through the bars.But Shirley didn't feel any romantic emotion, just hate and rancor, “I'm going to kill her, Frank. I swear to God that one day I’ll kill her!”“How can you speak God in a promise of murder?” Francisco admonishes her, “Shirley, you need to calm down.”“Calm me down?” Shirley laughs like a witch, “Okay, I'll calm down while I wait to be tried and sentenced to two years in jail!”“You shouldn't have threatened to assault a cop.” Francisco reminds her of this.“I was desperate! Frank, Mr. Bento told me to make it up to Maggie and she didn't even let me in, she told the building's concierge to call the police like I was an intruder! How do you want me to be calm?”Francisco tries to be controlled and rational. He takes a deep breath, “Shirley, this all started when you told the truth. We had sworn we would never tell Bernardo. My brother passed away not k
At Crystal Blue, Daryl was in his office listening to Kelvin's account of his mother.Daryl narrow-eyed opines, “I thought our mom was already spending romantic nights with Uncle Francisco.”Kelvin gets goosebumps in disgust, “Rodrigo and Veronica didn't say any of that. I passed by the coffee shop and found that Veronica reacted negatively, but Jack Motta calmed her down.”Daryl raises an eyebrow, “Did the two of them see each other again?”“Rodrigo said this time it’s for real,” Kelvin adds a smile.Daryl stands up, “Anyway, we need to see our mother. Despite Maggie suggesting I move, what she did was pretty extreme.”Diane enters the office just now, “Good morning, honey! Hello, Kelvin.”“Good morning, Diane.” Kelvin greets her, “You seem to have come in a hurry.”“I came by taxi.” Diane hugs her boyfriend, “Dear, it's confirmed: Roberto Reis will take over his father's building.”“Good for him,” Daryl responds neutrally.“And from what I've seen, he's going to have the help of his
Days later, Josias is informed at the mansion that Moacyr and Cristina intend to move to Victoria. The Barbosa couple visited him.“Guys...” Josias is surprised, “Why do you wanna go so far?”“So far?” Moacyr chuckles, “The capital is not a three-hour drive.”“Even so, I will miss you so much.” Josias hugs Moacyr, crouching down to him, “For what reason are you going?”Katherine and J.J are with them in the foyer.Cristina replies, “We want to be close to Pam to prevent her from returning here to annoy the Freire family. And we have found one medical clinic that can help Moacyr’s recovery.”Josias stands up straight again, “Well, to me, the second reason is the most plausible. Pamela can pack her bags and escape at dawn without anyone seeing her.”“It won't be that easy.” Cristina replies, “Raymond said she's living with him and Junior.”“So her father must be instilling common sense in that hollow head,” Josias comments jokingly, making everyone laugh.“Since I haven't met your daugh
Amoreira is eagerly reading the new issue of Maggiezine. Celebrity gossip and schemes always fascinate him. With a smirk, he turns the page after reading a column.“So that bastard actor was supporting two families at the same time? Who would say...”His office door opens and Bernardo enters.“Good morning, detective. I hope I can count on your help.”“Sit down, my lord. How can I help you...?”“Bernardo Marçal.”“Oh God, you own my favorite publication!” Amoreira shakes the magazine, “Can you give me an autograph?”Bernardo is not one to autograph, but he smiles and gives an impromptu autograph on the cover of the magazine, “Satisfied?”“And a lot, this magazine will be worth thousands of reais. Twenty years later, I will put it up for auction.”Bernardo has even forgotten that he was looking to divorce Maggie.“And then, Mr. Marçal?”“I want you to do a secret investigation.” Bernardo leans forward.“Mr. Marçal, if the matter is urgent, I suggest you look for a private investigator.
Bernardo returns to his office at Marçal Publishing. When he opens the door and enters, he got shocked.Maggie is sitting in the presidential chair, smiling and serene.“But what do you think you're doing here?” Bernardo thunders, “Do you want to die, or do you want a divorce?”“Neither this nor that.” Maggie gets up.“I'm going to ask the lady cleaner to disinfect this chair.” Bernardo scoffs at her, “I don't know how many bacteria you got on the upholstery.”“Bernie, you know very well that in all these years of marriage I have never given you any illness.” Maggie starts to reason with her husband.“That was because you were so careful and lucky,” Bernie replies bitterly, unwilling to open his mind.Maggie doesn't take long to show what she came for, “OK, I have two things to tell you. First, I still want my job as editor-in-chief of the magazine. I can already see that it has not stopped being published.”“I'm thinking about changing the name,” Bernardo responds menacingly.Maggie
Josias appears at Teodoro's building, looking around and feeling nostalgic just like Beto. Now the radio is playing “You Learn” by Alanis Morissette.“So, how are the preparations for the replacement going?” He claps his hands, “Oh, no need to worry. Katherine got five houses and two apartments for you to choose from with Gomes Real Estate Agency.”Cristina and Moacyr burst out laughing while Carmen is startled.“Son, you didn't need so much exaggeration.” Moacyr thanks him.“I just want to help.” Josias apologizes as a child caught in mischief.“That's why Tiago is your fan,” Carmen comments with a smile.Cristina takes Carmen's notebook, “We're thinking about appointments to replace us. Beto assured us that Teresa is willing to manage the place. And they are moving into our apartment.”“It was his father's apartment.” Josias comments.“Anyway, it's good that things are falling into place.” Moacyr sighs looking around, “I'm going to miss it here.”“I hope that at my wedding you are o
Uélton searches until he finds Wallace depositing bricks in a corner of the construction site.“Wallace, we need to talk urgently,” Uélton speaks sharply.Wallace straightens up and is alert, “Uélton, if we're going to fight, we'd better wait for the time to finish our work time.”“I hope you were satisfied.” Uélton continues, “My son saw the barrel of a revolver because of you.”Wallace narrows his eyes, “What did you say?”“Our father showed up at my house because you gossiped about me.” Uélton feels entitled to play the victim, “He showed up with the revolver he bought and pointed it at my forehead. If it weren't for Reuben begging his grandfather, I'd be dead right now.”Wallace is unfazed, “As I know your tongue, I know it wasn't exactly like that. I know that Dad leaves the house with the gun in his pocket.”“So there, I'm not lying!” Uélton yells.“You lie when you say it's not your fault.” Wallace smiles slightly, “Did I gossip? Did you have the nerve to tell our father that y
