Can bienvenido ever mean goodbye?
I'm watching this show and this guy is dying. His daughter holds him in her arms with tears streaming down her face and says "Bienvenido, papa". I was wondering if it has any meanings aside from "Welcome" because that doesn't seem to work too well here.
Maybe they said something like "buen viaje" for travel well or have a good trip? That's just a guess.
It may have been in answer to something he had said. Maybe he had thanked her for something earlier or any number of things that "welcome" could be an answer to.
I asked the guys at work and they thought they maybe since her dad had been sort of evilish that "welcome" might have meant something like "welcome back to being a good person before you die" or something to that effect. Similar to what Eddy wrote.
This may well have had a symbolic meaning just before the moment of death. I obviously don't know the story, however, If the daughter had been estranged from her father for some reason, she could have now been welcoming him back into her life before he dies. Brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it?
Hi jeez, very strange use, I would not know why she is using bienvenido here.
