Music & video synching is VERY important in this vid! Video quality increases after the first 3 clips, which I could not get in HD. Here's some important background re this story, why I love it, timestamps for scenes + something for you to watch for!! More...
SYNOPSIS OF THE STORY: Isabel's father discovers the relationship b/t I & C, sends Isabel off to a convent & arranges to have Cristina murdered. In the convent, Isabel endures torture from sadistic nuns in order to rid her of her "perversion". Cristina is taken to the woods at gunpoint, but the guy shoots over her head (at near point blank range) & tells her that if he ever sees her in Land of Wolves again, he won't "miss" next time. A terrified Cristina runs off, but risks her life to return to town to tell Isabel's sisters that they have to get Isabel out of the convent.
When she explains that their father forced Isabel to go to the convent, they ask why he would do such a thing. Cristina admits that she & Isabel are in love. Nieves tells her to get out & doesn't believe her, 1:22 but Almudena wonders if it's true. They visit Isabel in the convent, and she confirms what Cristina said, but under the watchful eyes of the Mother Superior, Isabel's behavior is so strange that Almudena knows something is wrong. They return to rescue Isabel, also risking their lives.
After the escape, there is a scene in the woods with the 4 of them on horseback. This is my FAVORITE SCENE of all. Whoever composes the music for this show should get an Emmy (or the Spanish equivalent). The original musical score for this scene and the acting were something you'd see near the end of a feature film!! Isabel says she can't return home b/c of her father. Cristina says they could go to the brothel. (Cristina is a prostitute.) Isabel says it's too dangerous for Cristina to stay in Land of Wolves, but Cristina says it's only until they can find another place. "Together?" asks Isabel. "Together," says Cristina. 2:06 and 4:00
Later there is a very tender scene of Cristina cleaning Isabel's wounds. 3:32 (I segue into a clip of this scene at the end of my vid, 4:17 so you can hear the dialogue & the show's original music for this beautiful scene. I would have loved to have shown you the woods scene w/ the 4 of them, but it just didn't fit here.)
THINGS TO WATCH FOR: When the 3 sisters are trapped at the convent gate, & it appears that all hope of Isabel escaping is lost & she is about to be returned to her cell, Cristina shows up w/ the gate key. Look at Nieves' eyes @1:17 & you'll see tears. I found that touching. I could just gush & gush about the superb acting in this show!!
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS STORY: Eps. 10-12 could be a self-contained feature film about this couple & these 4 women. If you watch nothing else, watch the clips from Season 2 Ep. 12 w/ subtitles. Here's a link to Part 1 (w/ English subs) & from that page you can click on the link for Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwU04ZBlPYA (Click on the CC button at the bottom to activate the subtitles; watch in full screen at 1080p (or the highest quality your connection can handle.)
I love seeing the badass Lobo sisters breaking Isabel out of the convent! I also love that, while Isabel's sisters don't understand her relationship w/ Cristina, & Nieves is clearly disgusted by it, THEY STILL LOVE THEIR SISTER!!! Also, these eps are where Cristina & Isabel transition from their previous complicated relationship (that's another story) to being a committed couple, against overwhelming odds against them. :o)
