That evening, Julia is looking at a magazine on Mariana’s bed, while Mariana paces around her room. Julia tells her to please come to bed because she’s making her dizzy.
Mariana: I can’t stop thinking that Armando is right.
Julia: Right about what?
Mariana: Do you think I’m acting like a territorial male?
Julia has no idea what Mariana is talking about, but Mariana is concerned that she’s acting like a dog that’s peeing around her territory. Julia reminds her that she’s not Mariana’s territory.
Mariana: I know I’m acting like an idiot. I get that perfectly. But … and I know we’ve already talked about this, and that you’re not my territory and that I’m not yours … but, metaphorically speaking, Julia, I need to have some type of … certainty.
Julia: I thought you and I thought the same way. That our philosophy was that no one belonged to anyone in the world … but, well … if you need me to tell you, I will tell you. I am yours and no one else’s.
And cue some kissing…
Onwards, to episode 54. We find Julia in Mariana’s kitchen. I guess she kind of liked Armando’s pie because she reaches in the fridge for another slice. This triggers Thoughts of the Bad Kind.
She decides to toss the Pie of Evil away, but that doesn’t help. She’s still fantasizing about sex with Armando. Ew. Bad knowledge.
Mariana wanders into the kitchen and whines about being hungry. Hungry enough to eat the Pie of Evil, but Julia tells her that she tossed it. But since her girl is hungry, Julia tells her she’ll make her something to eat. Something healthy.
Alma is discussing the issue of jealousy with her class, something that seems to be giving Armando some big ideas. He keeps glancing at the girl in his class, and you can see the wheels turning in his head. Not good.
After class, he talks to Ileana about how he’s going to get Julia back. Ileana is happy to hear him talking like that because he needs to “get her away from those lesbian friendships.” He then spots Valeria, the girl from class, and tells her that he’s got a proposal for her.
Over at Mariana’s, Julia and Mariana are rehearsing some scenes. The phone rings and Julia stops Mariana from answering. On the machine, Armando leaves a message inviting them both on a double dinner date with a girl he just met.
Julia doesn’t sound happy about this double date idea, but Mariana is all for it, since they all agreed to be friends.
Mariana: Unless that makes you jealous?
Julia: I am not jealous! Who told you I was jealous? I just think it’s inappropriate and … stupid.
Later on, they’re at Armando’s, helping him prepare dinner. Or rather, preparing the dinner for him. Julia asks questions, like “So how did you meet her?” in a tone that makes her sound like a jealous ex-girlfriend.
Armando: I met her at the Atalier.
Julia: Alma’s Atalier? What were you doing there?
Armando: Nothing. Taking classes. They’re very interesting, by the way. I’m determined to be a new, refined sort of man. Kind of like a lesbian … but more cultured.
He leaves the kitchen and Mariana walks up to Julia and the two start to bicker until Valeria shows up. Julia turns up the Jealous Ex-Girlfriend knob to maximum, something that doesn’t escape Mariana’s attention.
The cozier Armando and Valeria get, the more annoyed Julia looks. She tries to funnel that jealousy by kissing Mariana in front of Armando, but Mariana isn’t stupid and can see right through that, which means the rest of the evening is not going to go very smoothly.
Armando, meanwhile, is cackling madly inside his head and rubbing his hands together, thinking, “I’ve got you now, Julia Aparicio. MUAHAHAHAHA.”
