The show is emphasizing that redemption or change is not possible for her character because she is incapable of forgiveness.

Unfortunately, she is too self-absorbed to notice anything beyond her own desires. Fernanda feels that she deserves to have Juan Marcos and must stop anyone else from finding happiness with him.
