Telenovela (NBC) Full Episode & Recap - "The Hurricane"

"The Hurricane"

After shooting a bathing suit scene, the cast is stranded and starving on set with no food and no AC. Luckily, they have each other…

When weather reports issue a hurricane warning, no one takes it seriously. Since the cast is shooting a bathing suit scene, Ana (Eva Longoria) bans food from the set for 24 hours. Then, filming runs late because Xavi (Jencarlos Canela) can't cry on cue. The action is cut short by news that the hurricane is about to make landfall and everyone needs to stay indoors. The whole cast is stranded without food or power.

Gael (Jose Moreno Brooks) is the on-set safety captain, a position he got by default and may or may not be cut out for, but it doesn't stop him from being overzealous. He struggles to follow procedure, Ana gets hungry to the point of brutal honesty, and Xavi asks Isabela (Alex Meneses) for crying lessons. Ana goes on a mission to find food, while Gael succeeds in resetting the fuse box and getting the lights back on. The cast gets fed up with Ana's crankiness and banishes her to the deserted island set. Gael discovers a candy bar and fails to share it, which results in his subsequent banishment to the same place.

To get back in the others' good graces, Ana and Gael decide to venture out into the storm, only to discover that it's over. Regardless, they drench themselves in water and bring food back to the cast, receiving a hero's welcome. Xavi's so moved by a pudding cup he finally learns the secret of crying on cue.
