Cynthia's second wedding ceremony with Gustavo is ruined by unsettling news in "La Que No Podía Amar." She discovers the true identity of her mother and has it confirmed with a former member of the Montero household. Now, Rosaura is aware of her secret.
"La Que No Podía Amar" has provided limited details on the parents of Rogelio and Cynthia. They left the siblings a large estate, a complicated inheritance, and have been deceased for many years. Cynthia has never questioned the true identity of her mother, but her second wedding ceremony with Gustavo reveals uncomfortable secrets about her past. Cynthia learns that she is actually the daughter of Maria, the nanny and devoted servant, who helped raise the Montero children.
Who is Maria?
Maria helped raise Cynthia and Rogelio. "La Que No Podía Amar" has shown brief moments that describe her background. She is a dedicated nanny who gave up her own life to take care of the Montero family. She helps raise the orphaned Margarito and spends hours providing advice to the entire family. She is the true matriarch in the household, but is still considered a servant.
Cynthia's reaction is not surprising to viewers who are used to her selfish and pompous attitude. Her shock is mixed with disgust as she learns that Maria is her real mother. Maria has never given any indication that Cynthia is her daughter, but she immediately confesses the truth once she is confronted. Cynthia refuses to accept Maria or even acknowledge that she could be her mother. Unfortunately, she cannot debate facts.
Rosaura, Ana Paula's aunt, overhears the conversation between Cynthia and Maria. However, instead of keeping her knowledge a secret, she bursts into the room to gloat. Rosaura brings up an important plot detail in her speech. Cynthia has often mocked Ana Paula for being an illegitimate daughter of Federico. Now, Rosaura finds immense pleasure in learning that Cynthia is also illegitimate.
Will Rosaura turn to blackmail to keep Cynthia's secret? Maria has warned her not to discuss the conversation she overheard, but Ana Paula's greedy aunt has never cared about others before. Despite Maria's wonderful qualities and years of care, Cynthia may not want the rest of the world to know the truth. If Rosaura decides to blackmail her in the future, she may be willing to pay a high price to keep her quiet.
