A few days after the release of “Ugly Betty” from Netflix, netizens come together on social networks to continue commenting on their scenes, characters and more.
Although more than 20 years have passed since its premiere, viewers continue to talk about its chapters, but also about the development of each of the cast members. Of all, Marcela Valencia (Natalia Ramírez) is one of the favorites, but also more commented.
YOU CAN SEE: “Stranger things 5″ could be like “It, chapter 2″: what did the creators say?
Throughout the plot, we see how Marcela evolved and went from being an arrogant, despotic and mocking woman, to understanding that the love she felt for Armando Mendoza was not forever.
Fernando Gaytán’s soap opera showed us Betty under the constant humiliation and ridicule of all the members of Ecomoda, but also how her relationship with Marcela changed and matured.
Marcela Valencia was a villain in “Betty, the ugly”?
With characters like Daniel Valencia, Mario Calderón, Patricia Fernández and even Armando Mendoza himself, we can say that Marcela goes beyond being so.
Scenes where she even shows her face for ‘El cuartel de la feas’ or for Aura María, the secretary of Ecomoda, make us understand that she was fair, but also cruel when she wanted to.
Marcela’s key moments in “Betty, the ugly”
- Marcela and the times she saved Aura María
A sequence, which for many could be funny, showed us part of Marcela’s personality. When Aura María and Freddy spend the night together, they arrive late at Ecomoda the next day.
Exposed by Patricia, Marcela questions the couple and asks them if their romance is serious now. After saying that she does, she not only forgives them for their mistake, but also gives them advice: “I know the peace that a stable relationship gives. All I ask is that you take care of her. Aura Maria, look no further than what you found. Do not cause pain to those who love you”.
But it was not the only time. At another time, Aura María, a victim of sexual harassment by Gutiérrez, tells Marcela what happened. “He is very heavy with me, he has tried to overdo it.” Valencia’s response was direct: “Oh, yes? Well, she does me a favor and keeps me informed. If anything happens to him, I kick that guy out of this company.”
- Marcela and her friendship with Patricia Fernández
Valencia was aware that ‘La peliteñida’ was seeking at all costs to maintain a lifestyle that she could no longer access, so she did everything possible to help her. But she also acted as the voice of conscience when she needed it. It is enough to see how she reacted when she found out that Patricia was dating Nicolás. “I don’t think what they’re doing is right. It’s your problem, but you’re getting yourself into unnecessary trouble.”
- Marcela and the end of her relationship with Armando Mendoza
The final chapters of “Betty, la fea” keep one of the key moments of the telenovela: Marcela, already tired of the situation in Ecomoda, is honest with Betty. In a monologue lasting just over 10 minutes, she not only tells Beatriz that she deeply loves her ex-boyfriend, she also confesses that that love is over and that she finally understood him.
“Until two hours ago I told him to stay with me, but he told me he was leaving Ecomoda. He leaves to forget Beatriz, he is devastated. I love him, but I also understand that love is not selfish, to love is to wish for the good”, Marcela mentioned. After this, the character leaves the soap opera.
The debate will continue around the figure of Marcela Valencia, the character that had the most evolution throughout the more than 300 episodes of “Betty, la fea”. With unique moments, the closing that Fernando Gaytán gave him was a gift for Natalia Ramírez and for the fans, who said goodbye to one of the pillars of fiction.
