On PASSIONS, Pilar didn't want to tell her sons, Miguel and Luis, the truth about why they all needed to leave Harmony: because Juanita was coming to kill them. Instead, she enlisted the help of their fiancées, Kay and Fancy. The ladies then proceeded to use sex as a weapon, threatening to withhold it unless the guys agreed to go away with them. Eventually the guys demanded to know what was really going on and they were filled in, but it's a very sad statement about these relationships that they feel sex is the only thing going for them. Meantime, what does that say about Pilar that she doesn't even feel she can trust her children? Granted, characters in Harmony tend to not use simple communication as a means of getting anything done, but this was just degrading and ridiculous.
