Armando is explaining what occurred and he has reached the point where he turned the company over to Betty. His father states that it is a paper company. Armando says that it is legal. Armando tells them that Terra Moda was setup to defend Eco Moda in case their financial plans failed. (Marcela is shaking her head no.) He goes on to tell them that when it failed he asked Betty to take over Eco Moda. He goes on to explain the remainder. His father tells him that this is the worst hit that he could have given them. They no longer have a company. Betty tries to speak up but Don Roberto stops her and says that they will talk to her later. Don Roberto asks Armando how he could use illegal means to deceive the banks. Armando says that they are not illegal. Don Roberto says that they are dirty ways. Dona Margarita steps him and says that it has to do with the bet. Hugo is trying to understand everything and that know the company belongs to Betty. Hugo says that he will leave.
Marcela wants to know why he turned over the company to Betty. Armando says that he turned it over to her because she knew how their company worked. She had the relationships with the banks and suppliers. He thought that she could be the one to get them out of that mess. That answer does not satisfy Marcela. She wants to know why he trusted her so much. Why did he turn over their family business to her. "Because I trusted her," he answers. Marcela wants to know why he didn't trust her, she is his girlfriend and his associate. Isn't he the one that said that he was going to share his life with her? (Don Roberto is listening intently and looks at Armando. Betty is looking straight ahead.) Armando asks if she would have done what she asked. She answers no, that she would not let him make that filth.
Hugo says that he is curious about something else. He asks if the guy in the Mercedes who she is calling her boyfriend is the owner of Terra Moda. (Betty continues not to make eye contact).
Basically what Betty is telling the members (as she stood up to address them) is that her only aspiration is to leave them every thing! details of which they can find inside their folders. She leaves them all of the belongings of Terramoda, including the Mercedes, along with the title so that they can do with it as they please. She also gives them fully detailed reports of Terramoda's acquisitions and purchases, handing them over along with all of its capital, as she is going to dissolve the company. Lastly she tells them that they will also find her letter of resignation as Assistant to the President of Ecomoda, signed by her.
As this took place everyone basically followed what she described by shuffling the papers. Daniel is seen letting out a big sigh when she said she was giving them everything. Armando was just looking at her with a grave expression of defeat on his face. When Betty finished speaking she sat down and everyone just stared at each other in silence. Margarita broke the silence by saying. "a mi me parece muy bien" I find this very well.
In this section of the meeting Daniel told Betty not to think she can just wash her hands by renouncing her position, after all her involvement in the fraudulent movements. Betty replies that she is not washing her hands at all. That she obviously has to leave the company, that she doesn't want to remain there either, but that she is submitting everything in a clean and clear manner. That she has not stolen nor misused any of the money of either company. She then adds that she will also give up the money that is due to her. She apologizes to Don Roberto and Dona Margarita, and the reply she gets is from Don Roberto who tells her that he does accept her resignation and to sit down because the meeting is not over. She apologizes and sits down again. Don Roberto then states, that what can he say following all the horror he has heard. He addresses Armando and says that what can he say to you Armando to whom I handed a company that had zero debt and now not only is it filled with debts, you have also lost total control of it. Daniel then sarcastically says that Armando should be thankful for having had the luxury of burying a company of over thirty years, and that they should just contact the outside attorneys so that liquidation of Ecomoda can begin. Armando says he does not want liquidation. Don Roberto then says that there won't be liquidation. Armando says perfect lets look at Betty's projections, Daniel gets sarcastic again and says, So now he speaks of the recommendations of his beautiful genius. Armando looses his temper and says he does not feel there should be liquidation. Daniel tells him that he (Armando) no longer has a say so in the meeting. Don Roberto then says that although there are a lot of debts, the worth of Ecomoda is still greater, and that they can come out of the problem. Daniel tells him that he wants out. That he wants to sell his part. Don Roberto asks every other member if anyone would like to buy Daniel's part, with no one willing, Don Roberto tells Daniel to find an outside purchaser, but in the meantime they need to discuss who the new president of Ecomoda will be.
The rest of the meeting procedes by Don Roberto asking Armando to resign. That he should resign right now, on his own, not to force the other members to have to take a vote.
Here Armando has resigned and apologized to everyone for all he has done and kept from them. For all the debts that he has caused and he tells them that they shall have his written resignation soon. Daniel makes another sarcastic remark about Armando crying crocodile tears. Betty at this point can't take it anymore and she asks to be excused. Marcela stops her and tells her that she hopes that she never sets foot in the company ever again. Betty assures her that she will keep her promise. Daniel tells Betty not to even put Ecomoda's name on her resume because if someone calls for references, they will be told about the kind of woman she is without scruples. Daniel then says, Doctora Beatriz, you have truly been a calamity to this company. Armando shouts Shut up!, Shut up Daniel Valencia. She was merely following my orders. Daniel says that this is not a military camp, and that the employees are not subordinates who have to follow orders no matter what. He then asks Betty whether she was forced to do what she did. Whether a gun was put to her brain so that she would do what she did. Betty replies, No, I did it out of my own free will. Daniel says, fine, everything is clear now. Then he tells Armando, and don't think that because she is your confidant, she is freed from her responsibilities, merely because you gave her an order. Marcela says, And not such a confidant, for after all the woman on whom Armando believed blindly, the woman to whom he gave almost his whole life has just turned him in at this meeting. To which Betty adds, Dr. Armando can explain why I did this. And she leaves quickly.
Betty comes out crying and El Cuartel wants answers. Betty crying tells them to excuse her that she doesn't feel well. That she has just resigned. The cuartel is shocked! Betty goes in her office.
Armando meantimes says he will be right back and takes his folder along with Mario's. He walks out of the meeting.

Oh wow! That really sounds like an exciting episode, I can't wait to see it all in our version. But I'm gonna feel so sorry for Armaan, he was expecting this to be a fantastic day, but the opposite will happen...
I also can't wait to see how he reacts to the news of Jassi's resignation from GM, that is a must see!
But anyway, thank you very much for sharing this with us.
