Old foes return! Did you think, like I did, that said foe was going to be Lola? Then, you are as mistaken as I am (for now at least), because the villain comes from the past. The paaaaaast. Continue reading

For those of you who expected to find out last week more about Eulogio’s dream and whether or not that had made his memories return… Sorry! But there is way too much going on to spend time on a sedated man who still has dreams about Lorca and a girl running. Continue reading
