María Nava Urquiza, Ingobernable
María Nava Urquiza (Alicia Jaziz)
Ingobernable focuses on Emilia Urquiza (Kate del Castillo), the show’s First Lady of Mexico, who left her husband, initiated divorce procedures, and after an event in the premiere, found herself on the run.
Maria, the first daughter, was introduced in 1×01. She is 21 years old and having an affair with an older married woman, Daniela. In the premiere, they were interrupted while having sex by a frantic phone call from Emilia. Maria had very limited screen-time and only brief background appearances over the following episodes (1×02 – 1×05). She was texting Daniela a few times, with no reply, or worried about her mother. She did not have any story arcs and was not part of the plot.
In 1×06, Maria called Daniela to yell at her and hung up, in a very short scene. After the call, Maria was taking Percocet, presumably self medicating. The show immediately cut to a flashback of Maria going down on Daniela at her office. They were interrupted by Maria’s father who was having an affair with his press secretary.
Maria continued to have brief background appearances trying to find her mother, and meeting up with Daniela, mostly to argue. 1×11 opened with Maria and Daniela making out at Daniela’s office. Maria begged Daniela for help, and despite an earlier promise and Daniela responding with “I love you and I’ll do what I can to help”, she immediately betrayed her.
In 1×12 Maria was distraught, snorting drugs before heading outside the house to talk to the press. She then called Daniela, upset about the betrayal. Her grandfather walked in, told her she wasn’t allowed to leave the house unsupervised or talk to the press. Maria was tricked into going to a meeting, believing it was with her mother. Daniela drove her and both were kidnapped.
In the final 3 episodes, Maria complied with the kidnappers’ demands, when they threatened to hurt Daniela. Maria’s mother turned herself in trying to rescue her, but found Daniela instead. The season ended with Maria taken to the US by her kidnappers, and Daniela’s fate uncertain – it was unclear whether she was rescued or not.
