José Alfredo (Alexandre Nero) will discover the hairy secret of Maria Marta’s (Lilia Cabral) past in Império. The commander will demand explanations about the marriage of madame to Silviano (Othon Bastos) in Globo’s nine o’clock soap opera. When pressed, she will open the game to the “man in black”, who will not forgive.
It will all start when Cora (Marjorie Estiano) alerts the almighty that the “Empress” is deceiving him. The “snake” will reveal who her first husband was, but first, Cristina’s father (Leandra Leal) will make fun of the gossip. However, he will tell the story to Maria Isis (Marina Ruy Barbosa), who will confirm having heard the same version.
Angry, José Alfredo will surprise his wife: “Why didn’t you ever tell me that you were married to Silviano?” She will talk about the scenes planned to air from next Friday’s chapter (8).
The manager will not give up and will pressure her once more: “When did you have the brilliant idea of putting your ex-husband here in the house?” Some time later, the madame will confess:
He was in misery and sought me out. And you, each year richer, he asked me for help. And I, perhaps because I wanted to get revenge for the humiliations he put me through one day, I had the idea and proposed to him that he become my employee.
“This is already starting to make more sense, because you’re just the kind of woman who would make a proposal like that to a needy ex-husband,” the rich man will snipe, who will still call Silviano a fake. Martha, however, will intercede.
“I didn’t expect so much from him, because he was the best of all our servants, that you can’t deny. The most competent, the dearest,” the lady will say. The Commander will rebut: “The most liar?”.
