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
At the construction site, Simeon finds Uélton outside, frowning, constantly blowing a cup of coffee, and leaning against the wall, looking at the horizon.He decides to get closer to find out what's going on, “Do you intend to drink this coffee one day?”Uélton seems to have woken up from a daydream and drinks his coffee in one gulp, “Excuse me, Simeon. I’ll go back to work. I just needed a little break.”“Hey, I'm not scolding you at all.” Simeon smiles kindly, “I hope I can be of some help.”“Are you aware that my father held a gun to my forehead with my family witnessing it all?” Uélton informs him dramatically.Simeon is startled, “What? Why did Harold do this?”“He wants me to love and forgive Wally.” The nickname came out of Uélton's mouth with contempt.“And don't you love and forgive Wallace?” Simeon crosses his arms.“Simeon, I thought you were going to take my side.” Uélton whimpers, “I better get back to work.”Uélton moves away from Simeon who had to stop the words on his
After learning that Francisco also confirms Maggie's prostitution, Bernardo despairs and decides to go to Crystal Blue for help.Upon being greeted by Frederick, he asks eagerly, “Fred, are your bosses in?”“Kelvin is over at the bar checking drinks and Daryl is summing up his noon service receipts with the help of his girlfriend.”“Thank you very much.” Bernardo pats the waiter on his shoulder and goes to the bar.Kelvin notices his brother-in-law's presence, “Bernie! Did you come to tell us that you forgave Maggie?”“How is it possible, when it seems I'm the only man in the world who doesn't know she was a harlot?” Bernardo asks in a shaky voice.Kelvin closes the liquor cabinet with a wrinkled nose and turns to Bernardo, “Don't fall for these slanders. Daryl and I are her older brothers and we can confirm that this never happened.”“Then why did your uncle just confirm?” Bernardo asks with anguish.Kelvin is equally shocked, “Uncle Francisco? Well, he did it just to please my mothe
Josias is having dinner with his family at the moment: David, J.J and Katherine.“Dad, can we go to the beach this weekend?” David suggests.“Absolutely, son. Do you want us to call your mother?”David fills his face with shadows, “No, she's gonna want to bring that friend.”Katherine chokes on her red wine in a vain attempt to suppress a laugh.Josias looks seriously at his son, “David, I don't want you to hate your mother for this.”“I don't hate my mother, I hate her friend.” David plays with his food, stirring it with his fork, “He doesn't help her get a job. Dad, do you help Mom work as a maid here?”Katherine can't hold back any longer and laughs out loud.“See? Aunt Kate agrees.” David exclaims.Katherine takes the floor, “David, your mother won't want to work as a maid. And your father has no way of getting her into Rocha Constructions.”Josias is embarrassed by the conversation, “Let's talk about this more calmly. Now eat the mashed potatoes.”Ernesto respectfully approaches,
On Tuesday, Gustavo finds Angela fiercely arguing with another secretary from another company where she had left her résumé.“Did you trouble yourself by calling just to say I WASN'T approved in the job interview? And may I know why?”On the other side, the secretary replies with annoyance, “We got bad references from Rocha Constructions and my boss recognized you as the ex-fiancée of Mr. Josias Rocha. We can't hire you and so put ourselves in the crosshairs of his wrath. I'm sorry.”“Listen here, you sl—” The secretary hung up on the other end, “Hello? HELLO?” Angela slams the mouthpiece on the device, “Damn!”Gustavo does ‘tsk, tsk’ and sits down to put on his boots, “I told you so, Angela. You won't get a job in this town. The only chance you'll ever get rich is by marrying an idiot millionaire who doesn't read Maggiezine.”Angela snorts, “That's impossible. Even though my future husband is an idiot, every capixaba reads Maggiezine. No, Gus, I'm going to have to outdo myself by sta
