[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

Dave.

- Thanks.
- Careful, it's hot.

[SIGHS]

Look, I only gave the ranch
to Cherry because…

I believe it's what's best
for our family.

She looks after all of you,

and we know she isn't greedy.

I know that.

It's just that…

You could've turned it over
to Paco instead.



It would've been
the same thing, right?

Since they're married,

the ranch will be
their conjugal property.

Is this about

your past conflict with Paco?

Or is this about
your argument earlier?

I have my reasons, okay?

You just need to trust me.

I don't want you guys
to think I don't love you.

After all, you are my brothers.

And I know you aren't interested
in running the ranch.

Am I right?

Well, yeah.

I'm happy with
my simple life now.



I'm happy with my wife…

The dream of having kids…

I'm also happy with bartending.

- [GENTLE MUSIC PLAYING]
- [CHUCKLES]

I know it seems shallow, but…

this is the life I want.

And that's totally fine.

What's important is
you're happy.

[GENTLE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I don't know why, but…

- I like noise.
- [DAVE CHUCKLES]

I like playing music
and entertaining people.

Just don't drink too much
of your cocktails, okay?

Okay.

But, seriously…

Thank you for understanding.

[GENTLE MUSIC CONTINUES]

So… [CHUCKLES]

you want the ranch's ownership
to be transferred again

to someone else?

Attorney,
I really can't accept it.

Attorney, what other options
do we have?

None.

You'll just have to accept it.

Do you realize how ridiculous
your request is?

Do you have any idea
how much Dave spent

for the property transfer tax
and inheritance tax?

Both amounted to millions
for that property.

And now, you want it
transferred again?

Are you willing to spend
a huge amount of money for that?

Paco, that would be impractical.

[LAWYER] Anyway, Paco,

even though Dave
transferred the property

to Cherry's name,

legally, it will also be
your property

since you are Cherry's husband.

The ranch is
your conjugal property.

So…

It remains in your family,

if that's what
you're worried about.

Love, the lawyer was right.

It would be impractical
for us to pay millions.

Dave, that jerk…

But, love,
I won't make a decision

until we all come
to an agreement.

I don't want your family
to be ruined over this.

Love, that's impossible now.

Dave already ruined us!

Love, please…

Love, if I allow this,
it will be like saying

I'm willing to let him
steal you from me!

Love, what kind
of thinking is that?!

He has a girlfriend, and
they're returning to America!

If I'm wrong,

then I will have my skin
branded like a cow's.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Come on, love…

You know what?

Do whatever you want.

You own the ranch now anyway.

Love!

Paco!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Well, that's great!

You're a millionaire now,
Cherry Red!

How much do you think
that ranch is worth?

Auntie!

I told you, dear,

those boys would
end up fighting.

Anything that involves money
can and will spark conflict!

I don't think so.

Tell me, what was
Dave's intention for doing it?

Is he trying to ruin you
and your husband?

Auntie, he's returning
to America.

Well then, good!

Those two are just having
a sibling conflict, then.

But wouldn't it be bad
if they parted ways bitterly?

Also, I promised Papa Freddie

that I will look after
the brothers.

You know, dear,

you are shouldering a burden
that isn't yours to shoulder.

Goodness!

Sit down, will you?

[OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Dave just gave everything
to Cherry…

All of it.

It will be turned over
to Cherry Red Estrella.

[BREATH QUIVERING]

What if he tells her the truth?

My conscience is killing me.

It's the right thing to do.

We have to make things right
with Cherry.

We, Estrellas,
are a family of monsters.

[BREATH QUIVERING]

[DREW] I'm here to change.

I'm trying to be
a completely different person.

[BREATH QUIVERING]

Why is he doing this to me?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

How's it going?

Can you hook me up?

Of course, dude.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SIGHS]

So, when are you leaving?

Maybe in a week.

A week?

Why can't you leave now?

What are you waiting for?

For my wife to stop you?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Or are you waiting for me
to thank you

for your grand gesture?

You know, after humiliating me
with your decision,

you just lost all my respect
for you as a brother.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING]

[LAWYER]
Are you sure about this, Dave?

Yes, I'm sure, Attorney.

But I don't understand.

Look, Seb isn't interested.

He is passionate
about something else

that doesn't involve
the ranch.

As for Drew…

It's hard to entrust him
with a huge amount of wealth.

It could destroy him.

And Paco…

What about him?

He doesn't know how
to manage investments.

He wants to spend
too much too soon

on his business projects.

And he doesn't think about
his investments carefully.

I fear he might
end up like Papa.

Well, Dave, the decision
is yours to make.

[DAVE] You don't deserve
terrible things in life.

You deserve to be happy.

You deserve to be loved
wholeheartedly

and without any complication.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

I am giving you the one thing
we inherited from Papa

because we took away from you
the one person

who mattered most
to you, Cherry.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

Love…

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

Let's sleep now.

I know we'll get through this.

We've overcome a lot
of challenges together.

Love…

Look…

I'm not upset with you, okay?

I want to make that clear.
I'm not upset with you.

And I'm so sorry
for the sarcastic things I said.

I'm so sorry, love.

I promise I'll try
to be better.

I promise.

I'm so sorry.

Thank you, love.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

[KNOCKING]
Drew? Are you okay in there?

Dude, it's locked.
Call for help!

- Hold on.
- Drew!

- [UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]
- [KNOCKING CONTINUES]

Drew!

Miss, our friend
is locked up inside.

Drew!

Drew?

Oh, sh--

- Drew.
- Drew!

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[ENGINE ROARS]

[PANTING]

Drew?

Drew! Drew!

Drew.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

Come on! Come on!

Drew. Drew! Drew!

Wake up! Come on, Drew.
Wake up!

Come on! Wake up!

Drew! Drew!

Come on! Come on!

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

[DAVE] You nearly overdosed.

Just go.

No.

I'm taking you with me
to the US.

No.

I'm not going back.

You made your decision,
I'm making mine.

Drew.

You're wasting all of
my sacrifices for you.

And you're undoing all of
my work for Cherry Red.

What are you talking about?

You gave her the ranch.

You gave her everything!

Why?

Because we're not good people?

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

What's next?

You'll tell her the truth?

- No. I won't tell her.
- You'll tell her what I did?

What assurance do I have?

Your love?

Your undying love for Cherry?

Drew,
I'm not going to tell her.

This is exhausting.

Because it feels like
you want me to fail.

Drew, I would never
do that to you.

If that's true, I would've
done it a long time ago.

Well, you're starting now.

So, go.

Leave me.

Because I'm never going back.

I will do everything

to keep the truth buried.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[SIGHS HEAVILY]

Yeah, we're just finalizing
some things here,

but we're pretty much
good to go.

By next week,
we'll be back in New York.

Yeah, I've already booked
the tickets.

I know!

I miss you guys so much, too.

I've got to go.

Bye!

I accept.

Good.

I'm glad.

But, Dave…

Please don't go.

Your father left the ranch
to you for a reason.

I've already fulfilled
that purpose.

Dave…

Do you really think
that's what your father wanted?

To cause a rift
between his sons?

Maybe.

Dave, no.

Your father wanted you
to stay in the ranch

with your brothers.

He wanted the four of you

to manage the ranch together.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Becca and I were offered
partnership in a firm.

We'll sign the contract
when we get there.

Dave, you can't leave
without fixing things with Paco.

What can I do to make you stay?

Cherry, believe me.

You can't give me what I want.

Try me.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I accepted it,

but that doesn't mean
I'll keep the ranch to myself.

Paco and I won't keep it
to ourselves.

We'll share it with you.

Really?

You'll give us a share?

Yes, something like that.

But we can't do it on paper.

You see…

It's too impractical.

We'll have to pay taxes
worth millions.

It's okay, Cherry.

We don't need a piece of paper.

I never wanted
the ranch for myself.

[STOMPS, SIGHS]

There you go again.

[SCOFFS]
I'm just telling the truth.

Uh…

Cherry, thank you
for giving us a share.

Excuse me.

- I'm sorry for--
- No.

I'm sorry. We shouldn't
be fighting in front of you.

Seb just doesn't get my point.

[INHALES DEEPLY, SIGHS]

We're not going back
to the US.

What?!

This is humiliating!

We already accepted the offer.

You can't just change
your mind on a whim.

I can't leave Drew,

not like this.

Your brothers are adults!

You're not responsible
for them anymore!

They'll never learn
if you keep coddling them,

so let's just go back
to the US.

You'll never understand, okay?

What don't I understand?

I've been nothing
but understanding.

Is this how things will be
when we get married?

Look, Becca, please…

They're my family.

Well, you got me there.

After all, who am I to you?

I'm not even your wife.

And now I don't know…

[SOBS]

…if I'm even your partner.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Becca.

Becca, please, just…

Becca, please,
we can talk about this.

[SIGHS, SNIFFLES]

Becca! Becca, please.
Stop. Please. Please…

Becca. Becca…

Love, I asked Dave

if he could help us
with the ranch.

[SIGHS]

You gave him exactly
what he wanted.

You came to him for help.
He's never going to leave.

Love, he said no.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Becca?

[DAVE] Becca.

Becca!

Where's your luggage?

- Dave?
- Don't tell me you're staying.

I'm staying.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

What did I tell you?

Nanny, where's Drew?

Uh, he told me he was leaving.

He's with his friends.

"Friends"?

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

Maybe he's just busy, love.

Where's Becca?

[PACO] She didn't come back.

Right?

Is it because you decided
to stay instead?

We just have
different plans now.

[SCOFFS]

[INHALES DEEPLY, SIGHS]

Well, uh…

Love, I need to go.
I'm running late.

Let's go, I'll drop you off.

Uh, I have so many
things to do at the center.

I need to see Miss Lila too.

That's fine.
I'll drop you off there.

No need, love.
I have so much work to do.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Okay.

Alright, then.

[INHALES SHARPLY]

I'll go now.

Take care, love.

I will. You take care too, okay?

[SIGHS SHARPLY]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PHONE RINGING]

- "Paco"
- [INHALES SHARPLY]

Drew? Where are you?

I'm with my friends.

"Friends"?

Drew, you don't
have friends here.

Well, I made new friends, okay?

Drew, don't lie to me.

Where are you?!

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

Thank you, Dave.

For what?

For staying.

And…

I'm sorry about you and Becca.

But I'm sure that
if she truly loves you,

she'll come back.

I think you may be right
about that.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]
So, what's your plan?

I guess I'm just enjoying

the first day of
being unemployed.

[CHUCKLES]
That's great, then.

We have an opening at the ranch.

And what am I supposed
to do there?

A lot, actually.

You can work there.

Nah. Paco might get mad,
and you'll end up fighting.

You know what?

Even though Paco is hot-headed

and he quickly runs out
of patience,

he thinks about all of you
all the time.

He cares about his family.

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

So, what can an engineer like me
do for the ranch?

You can be the head.

"Head"?

Of what, exactly?

Head of…
Business Development and…

And?

And Research.

Business Development
and Research?

Is that a new department?

[GIGGLES]

[BOTH LAUGH]

That role would
suit you perfectly.

You are the new engineer
of the new department.

It has a nice ring to it, right?

Okay. [CHUCKLING]

[GIGGLING]

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

[CHUCKLES]

[BREATHES DEEPLY]

If you're here to scold me,

you're only wasting your time.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

I want my brother back.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

We're going home.

I'm bringing you home.

I don't want to!

[BREATHES DEEPLY]

Drew, I know you'll fall down

and make mistakes again.

But that's why I'm here.

To help you rise up again.

Because that's what we do.

That's what Estrellas do.

We rise up no matter
how many times we fall.

You are an Estrella.

You are my brother.

So, tell me what you need.
That's what I'm here for.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

[DREW INHALES SHARPLY]

I just want to be okay.

Oh, you want to be okay?

You want to be okay?
Let's make it happen.

[SOBS]

Let's do that

because you're no longer
coming back here.

From this day on,

you will keep your eyes
on that goal.

Don't look anywhere else.

[BREATH QUIVERING]

Okay?

[BREATHES DEEPLY]

Okay.

[DREW INHALES SHARPLY]

Okay.

Okay.

[DREW INHALES DEEPLY]

[INHALES SHARPLY,
EXHALES DEEPLY]

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BELEN] Ma'am Cherry! Sir Dave!
What brings you here?

I just want to show Dave
what we do here.

- I see.
- Let's go.

Oh, Sir Dave,
do you remember Lenlen?

Miss Esther's daughter?

Oh, I remember her.

The girl whom we treated
like our daughter?

Yes, sir.

The naughty girl who used
to call you "Papa" and "Mama."

She already graduated
from college.

That was your dream
for her, right?

That's why we're
very grateful to you,

especially Esther
and her husband.

Because you never stopped
taking care of us.

Even though Paco's
canning project was shelved,

we'll still find ways for you
to have a source of income

because that's our dream.

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

[CHERRY] Yes,
that's the right amount.

Very good.

[BELEN] Sir Dave.

So much has changed, right?

Aside from
the livelihood center,

we also have
a learning center now.

But there are some things…

that stay the same.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

Drew, let's go.

Slowly.

Okay, we're going inside.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

You okay? Hmm?

Let's go.

[PACO]
Come on, let's go inside.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Come on.

Careful.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I told you Becca
would come back.

Because if you
truly love a person,

you'll come back to them.

Mm…

I guess that's why
Dave came back, huh?

He came back
because he loves you.

He loves his brothers.

[SCOFFS]

[SOBS] I just feel so stupid…

for coming back to you.

And you know what?

I could've easily left you,

but I still chose to stay.

[SOBBING]

To support you.

To take care of you.

To love you.

- [MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]
- [SOBBING CONTINUES]

So, Dave…

Please include me
in your dreams.

[CRYING]

Hey.

Look at me.

Hey.

[CRYING CONTINUES]

Becca, I'm sorry.

Thank you. Thank you.

I just want to be with you.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CRYING CONTINUES]

By the way, love, about Drew…

I was thinking of giving him
a position at Cuatro,

if that's okay with you.

Why not?

Great. He can keep himself busy
with his duties,

instead of hanging out
with bad company.

You sure it's okay?

Of course, if it'll help him.

What position are you thinking
of giving him?

I still haven't decided.

He could work
in our business development

and research department,

under Dave.

What?

Did I hear that right?

We have a new department?

And Dave's heading it?

Love.

He'll be a great asset
to Cuatro.

Him and Drew.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

[BREATHES HEAVILY]

Alright.

I, uh…

I trust your decisions, love.

I'll let you handle it.

Let's go to sleep.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

Look, Paco.

About Drew--

Yeah.

I heard.

It seems you didn't plan
on telling us, anyway.

Paco, he's the reason
why I'll be staying here.

Oh, really?

But Drew doesn't need you
to look after him.

He's not a kid anymore.

You know what? It's up to you
if you'll believe me or not.

So, how long do you plan on…

babysitting Drew here?

Or will you be staying for good
to look after him?

What's your plan?

I don't know yet.

You don't know?

Well, I heard that
you recently got hired.

[SCOFFS] What was it again?

Business development head?

- [EXHALES DEEPLY]
- Wow.

Maybe you could work on
our canning project,

if it's not too difficult.

Yeah, maybe. Let's see.

Alright. Let's see. Thanks.

One more thing.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

What about my wife?

Will you babysit her too?

She doesn't need you.

She is a strong
and independent woman.

So, please…

Stay away from her.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Paco.

Drew.

Perfect timing.
I have something to tell you.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Our newest members
of Cuatro Estrella,

Dave and Drew Estrella.

I'm sure Papa's smiling down
from heaven right now.

But are their smiles genuine?

You know the drama never ends
when it comes to your family.

Tons of meat that are meant
to be delivered to Good Foods

are being held at the port.

Congrats!
Everything's settled.

What did you do?

I saved the company
from losing a big client.

You bypassed me!

I did what I had to do
for the ranch.

The ranch you gave away.

So, toys or girls?

Oh…
So, there really is a girl!

Who is she?

Paco and I only fought
over one thing.

You.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

At least now, someone else
will try to fix this.
