Enriqueta is the hair salon owner who secretly practiced illegal plastic surgery in the back of the salon where many of the protagonists worked, including Sara and Aracely. Whenever she is up to no good, or simply planning or doing something malicious, there is specific music that plays. It's a dark, violin-filled tune that was almost comical to me at first, but now I can recognize that it is definitely essential to the telenovela in terms of building suspense. I have provided a link to a clip below. In the clip, Enriqueta is threatening an old enemy. I think it's interesting because afterward, the scene immediately cuts to Sara, who is literally holding a gun to her sister and her brother-in-law–yet the "suspenseful" tune isn't playing. That is when I knew to recognize it as Enriqueta's "evil theme."
Compared to some of the American television shows I have watched, the incidental music used for suspense is definitely more prevalent in my telenovela. However, I think it speaks to the detail that the production team puts into each episode, because they incorporate a variety of different themes for many characters. As we mentioned in class, some shows like Scandal use a specific theme for a couple throughout, but usually it's just that–for one couple, or one type of moment. In my telenovela, there are a variety of themes used for a greatly larger number of situations, which enhances the drama as it unfolds and also adds another dimension to the characters.
