Los Ricos no piden permiso is a 2016 Argentine telenovela. It is set in a rach near the small town of La Cruz.


  • Adam Westing: Juana Viale joined the cast for a pair of weeks. And, like a good Malparida, she killed all the people she could in the time she got.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Both Josefina and Marcial fell into this, when they were about to kill Elena and Agustín. Marcial was even cornered by Pedro, Antonio and the police, each one pointing their own guns to him, and he still gave speeches instead of finally killing Agustín.
  • Break the Haughty: Initialy, Marisol (a fellow maid) was a complete jerk, openly insulting Helena and joining the rich bitch Josefina against her. But then, Lisandro took her as his sex toy, left her pregnant and refuses to take care of the kid. You can't but feel sorry for her.
  • Bus Crash: Subverted. Some time after the "Negro"'s departure, Jackie is reading the newspaper, and suddenly finds an obituary for Hugo Funes (his actual name), who was shot down by the police. Even Marisol dropped her emnity with her, and they shared a hug. But they later discovered that it was simply another unrelated thief with the same name.
  • Came Back Wrong: Agustín thinks this of himself, as he was resurrected but got the power to see uncomfortable visions of the future as a side effect. He says that he should have stayed dead.
  • Death by Origin Story: Norma died in the first episode, in unclear circumstances.
  • Derailing Love Interests: In his last times, Pedro is The Chessmaster with violent outbursts and an obsession with Elena. Of course, we are supposed to want Elena to leave him and go with Agustín. He is so unlike the Pedro that first came to the mansion to spy the bad guys on Antonio's behalf...
  • For Science!: Victoria's main motivation in the first episodes.
  • Humble Goal: The "Negro"'s goal in life is to see the sea someday.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Rafa noticed that Julia is way more happy with Antonio than she ever was with him, so he stepped aside.
  • Kissing Cousins: Negro and Marisol are cousins. He likes her and wants to hook up with her, who cares if they are related? For starters, she cares, and rejects him and every moment because of that.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After so many months claiming to have been the victim of kidnapping, rape and torture for years (when she was actually having a great vacation in Colombia), Laura was kidnapped, raped and tortured for real in the end, and it seems that she'll be with him for a long, long time.
  • No Party Given: Marcial is the evil mayor, and Antonio is the honest guy running for mayor against him. They discuss politics for some weeks, but none of them point their actual party, or mention actual politicians.
  • Precrime Arrest: Agustín had a vision where Pedro kills Elena. He interrupts an otherwise calm breakfast to try to kill him, before he can do that. Pedro says that he's just crazy.
  • Promotion to Parent: Lisandro had sex with Marisol and left her pregnant. Of course, he will not care about the child. Negro stepped in and proposed to be the adoptive parent.
  • Runaway Bride: Both Emilia and Ana ran away from their respective grooms.
  • Seers: The water of the lake had a weird side effect on Agustín: now he can see the future.
  • The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: Victoria and Teresa. But this "war" has gone a little too far: Victoria had Marcial jail her sister in a mental institution and keep her stoned (she's not crazy), and when it failed, induce a coma.
  • Ultimate Authority Mayor: Marcial has the whole town under his iron fist.
  • Worst News Judgment Ever: March 1. President Mauricio Macri made a state of union adress, with a harsh speech against the former president Cristina Kirchner. Stiusso returns to the country and links Kirchner with the murder of the prosecutor Alberto Nisman. But, for the newspaper of La Cruz, the main page news of the day is... an interview with a 10-years old girl?
  • You Can't Fight Fate: Agustín's visions always come to pass, exactly as he sees them.
