The Relationship Dynamics Between Julia, Carlos And Yeni Becomes Complicated

Upon witnessing Carlos’ unrelenting yearning to find Yeni, Julia suspects they have had something deeper going on behind her back. And as it turns out, it is the truth. Marcella drugged Yeni on Nora’s order. The abortion pills worked and Yeni went through a miscarriage but Julia was kept out of the loop by Carlos who never told anyone what went on behind the curtains. After finding out that Julia’s last embryo couldn’t fully form into a baby, Carlos is disheartened and deeply shattered. He keeps it from everyone including Yeni as he gets closer to her and eventually falls for her.

As it turns out, the abortion pills didn’t work properly. The embryo had split into two and Yeni was carrying identical twins out of which one was aborted due to the pill. Now, she wasn’t only carrying Julia and Carlo’s child but also hers and Carlos’. The specially-abled child turns out to be Julia who was on the pills behind the deformity issue and the girl, Tessa, is of Carlos and Yeni’s. They are involved in a tangled mess and when Yeni finds solace within Francisco, she doesn’t miss a beat and grabs the opportunity to run away.

How Does Luciano Discover Carlos?

Yeni’s father was attacked by Balo who was avenging his now dead brother. Balo threw Mubul in front of a moving car, causing both the car driver and Mubul’s death. The driver turns out to be Francisco’s wife who now has a little infant, Francisca to take care of. While Julia yearns to hold her son, she cannot let go of Tessa either. So, both women decide to keep their children to themselves. However, Carlos isn’t in the loop and is under the illusion that Yena died in the explosion orchestrated by Ochoa.

Decades later, Yeni’s son, Luciano has grown up and so has Tessa and Francisca. Yeni has been hiding away from Carlos and the entire manipulative Huizar family. However, luck isn’t on her side. Francisca uploads Luciano’s video over the Internet and it goes viral forcing her to reveal the entire truth to Luciano. Meanwhile, Fernanda and her husband, Arturo are suffering through disagreement issues.
