After knowing about the truth of his brother and mother’s deaths, Moisés decides to kill Romeo. He joins hands with Coral and Wendy to put an end to the brother owner’s life. Even when Romeo realizes that Moisés has turned against him, he hopes that his men will protect him. However, Romeo has never cared for his men for them to stand beside him in the face of an immense threat. Moisés and Coral make it clear that the men have nothing to gain by protecting the brothel owner, which leads them to escape from Las Novias. Since there isn’t anyone else at the establishment to save him, Moisés, Coral, and Wendy trap Romeo inside a boiler and sets fire. Romeo, along with his brothel, gets burnt down

Although Gina, Coral, and Wendy have nearly killed him several times, Romeo escapes from every attempt, making him seem immortal in the eyes of the trio. Ironically, he gets killed by a group led by Moisés for committing deeds he could have avoided committing from. There wasn’t any reason for him to kill Moisés’ brother Christian or their mother, which ultimately infuriate Moisés to lead Coral and Wendy to kill the brothel owner. If Moisés hasn’t turned sides, Romeo may have succeeded in killing Coral and Wendy and even possibly Moisés to avoid any threats. His decision to let Christian bleeds to death eventually pave the way for his death.

Moisés and Coral always have an intricate relationship. Even while trying to kill each other, they never shy away from acknowledging the fact that they have feelings for one another. When Moisés tries to kill himself, it is Coral who saves him. When Coral destroys her life with her drug addiction, Moisés tries his best to protect her. After killing Romeo, the two of them even acknowledge that they have a future together. As two individuals who suffered immensely, they succeed in understanding each other enormously as well. However, their capability to feel for each other isn’t enough for Coral to accept him as her partner.

Although Moisés loves her, he has also tortured her considerably as one of Romeo’s two henchmen. Coral cannot forgive him for the actions he committed when she was just a prostitute. When he asks for forgiveness, Coral makes it clear that she cannot forgive him since he has scarred her unignorably. After killing Romeo, Coral must want a new life without the painful reminders of the past, which includes her time with Moisés as well. She doesn’t want to compromise again by inviting him into her life when there is he can continue hurting her.

Although Coral and Moisés do not end up together, they part ways upon displaying their affection for one another. They both acknowledge how only they can understand the nuances of the struggles of the other. Moisés even lets Coral know that he will change for her to accept him but what stops Coral from committing to him in a relationship is not the future but the past. Moisés realizes that pushing Coral is not going to change her mind. He eventually walks away from her so that they can lead satisfied lives elsewhere, without being together.

Do Coral and Wendy Reconnect?

After settling in Almería, Coral lies to Wendy and Gina about her drug consumption. She lets them know that she has stopped consuming drugs, only for the two of them to celebrate Coral’s efforts to stay away from the same. But Coral has been consuming drugs without a stop. When Wendy comes to know about the same, she parts ways with Coral since she doesn’t tolerate that her best friend and “sister” has been telling her a lie. She also takes Gina’s baby away from Coral since she doesn’t trust a drug addict to take care of the baby. However, their separation doesn’t last long.

Wendy and Coral eventually reconnect as they team up to kill Romeo. After killing him, the two of them share an intimate and emotional moment, through which Wendy assures Coral that she will always remain her “sister.” Although Wendy reacts badly to Coral’s addiction, the former is not someone who cannot understand the gravity of the latter’s vulnerability. As they both remove Romeo from their life, Wendy must be hopeful that Coral will not be needing drugs anymore to peacefully sleep, which may have played a part in her decision to reconnect with Coral.
