[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

[BOTH GRUNTING]

You're bad! Don't touch me!

- You're a bad man!
- Aah!

Don't touch me!

Get out, you bastard!

- [GRUNTS]
- Get out!

I'll kill you
if you don't get out!

Leave!

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[CHERRY] Seb! Get in!



[EXHALES SHARPLY]

[ENGINE RUMBLING,
HANDBRAKE CLICKS]

How could you do this, Seb?

What the hell
were you thinking?!

[SIGHS] I'm not doing
anything wrong.

Really, now?

I'm not stupid!

You can't fool me.

I'm not fooling anyone!

You're such a liar.

How could you lie to my face
when I caught you in the act?

You said I can confront you
once I find evidence.

[SIGHS]

And now,
you're still denying it?



What's happening to you, Seb?

[GLOOMY MUSIC PLAYING]

Answer me!

I want to understand
why you're doing this.

- [SIGHS]
- Colleen's the perfect girl.

So please, don't tell her
about this.

Then why did you cheat on her?

What's happening to you?

[GLOOMY MUSIC CONTINUES]

You know me.

Colleen's the only woman
I've loved so much.

But nowadays, all she talks
about is my inheritance.

It's getting annoying.

[SIGHS]

Maybe I'm just missing
how we used to be.

I just want to feel that
kind of happiness again.

Back when our lives
were simple but happy.

No complications.

I guess that's what
pushed me to cheat.

[GLOOMY MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SIGHS]

But Cherry, I have
no plans of giving up

on my relationship
with Colleen.

I'll save our marriage.

You'd better, Seb.

This is a mistake
you simply can't undo.

A lot will change,

and some things won't
be the same again.

But what matters most is
you don't give up on each other.

[GLOOMY MUSIC CONTINUES]

So, the lady of
the house is back.

What brings the two
of you here?

We want to talk
to you and Paco.

Nanny, where's Paco?

He hasn't come home,
Miss Cherry.

Here's your coffee, sir.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

Are you okay?

Where is Paco anyway?

Wait here.
I'll talk to Cherry.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SCOFFS]

[GROANS IN PAIN]

[GROANS IN PAIN]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[INHALES SHARPLY]

[HUFFS]

[LINE RINGING]

Love?

Dave and Becca are here.

They said they have
something to tell us.

Where are you now, love?

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

Um… okay.
I'm on my way home.

I'm on my way home.
[CHUCKLES]

Alright. Be careful.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

Cherry?

Is something wrong?

You don't look okay.

I'm fine. I'm just tired.

Cherry,

are you avoiding me?

No.

Did you tell Paco
about my confession?

Why would I tell him about it?

Do you want the two of you
to fight again?

[SIGHS LOUDLY]

Fine. I'll admit
I'm avoiding you.

Because that's
the right thing to do.

We should bury the past,

lock it in a safe,
and throw away the key.

It's time we forget
about the past, Dave.

I-I know. I know.

Cherry, it's not my intention
to make you feel uncomfortable.

I'm sorry.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

- Hello?
- [WOMAN] Hello?

Is this
Mr. Paco Estrella's wife?

He's in the
hospital right now.

The hospital?

What?

What happened?!

[GROANS]

[CHERRY] They said he's okay.

Love, don't move too much.

Your wound might open up.

[BREATHES HEAVILY]

I'm sorry I made you worry.

[SIGHS]

What happened to you, anyway?

Uh, earlier…

W-While I was horse riding,

I didn't notice that
there was a protruding nail…

- [SIGHS]
- …on the gate of the farm.

So, I accidentally cut myself.

I'll have it fixed first thing
tomorrow, okay?

You're too careless.

I'm sorry.

Becca.

- Hey.
- Dave.

What brings you here?

Well, we wanted to invite you
to our resort's opening.

Oh, alright. We'll be there.

Love, we can't go.
Look how serious your wound is.

This is nothing, love.
It's just a little scratch.

It'll get better soon, okay?

- [EXHALES DEEPLY]
- [PACO] I'll be fine.

You know what, Paco?
I think Cherry's right.

No, Dave.

We'll be there.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Dave, it's getting dark.

We might have a hard time
going back to Barlig.

Alright.

Hey, we'll see you
at the opening, okay?

- [PACO] Mm-hmm.
- Get well soon.

We'll see you there.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

- Love.
- Yes, love?

Let's skip the event.

[SIGHS] Love, isn't this
what you've always wanted?

For me and my brothers
to spend time together?

Well, this is our chance.

So, why stop me from going?

Come on, love.
Let's attend the event.

Fine.

- Get some rest.
- Yes, ma'am.

- Careful.
- [CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

The last time,
you came home dirty.

And now,
you got a stab wound.

I told you,
I wasn't stabbed, love.

Love, tell me
what really happened.

Dave said you suddenly
left the office.

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

Nothing important, love.
I just had something to do.

[PACO] How do I ask her
about her mother?

[SIGHS]

Uh, love?

Love, all your worrying
reminds me of…

[INHALES DEEPLY]
…my mom.

I'm just wondering, love.

What do you remember
about your mom?

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

Don't change the topic.

No, love. [CHUCKLES]
I wasn't trying to change it.

I'm just really curious.

For someone who lost her
mother at an early age,

you're unbelievably motherly.

I doubt you get that
from Auntie Ebs.

- [CHUCKLES]
- Right?

[BOTH LAUGH]

Hmm?

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Love, I really can't remember
anything about my mom.

I was still young
when she passed away.

I was two years old then.

All I know is
our house burned down.

That fire took my mom's life.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Paco? [INHALES DEEPLY]

Can I go back to school?

I promise I won't neglect

my responsibilities
at the ranch.

I just want to feel complete…
[INHALES DEEPLY]

…once I get my diploma.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

What started the fire?

Papa said it was an accident.

- The fire wasn't an accident.
- "One dead in house fire"

- Freddie was behind it.
- "A woman died…"

[CAROL] He set the farmhouse
on fire to make you leave.

[CHERRY] We couldn't have it
investigated because…

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

He was busy raising me.

Then, he went abroad.

And when he came back…

He was killed.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Love, let's…

…have your father's case
reinvestigated, okay?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Let's follow up on the case.

Okay?

[PACO GROANS]

[GRUNTS]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DREW] You shut up!

[THUDS]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

- You!
- [THUDS]

[THUDS]

- You! You!
- [THUDS]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PACO] Where did you find
this letter?

Cliff, corpse…

A man.

A dead man.

"A woman is dead
from a house fire…"

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Hey, Paco.

Drew! Good morning.

- Good morning.
- [INHALES SHARPLY]

How's your wound?

It's fine.
Nothing to worry about.

But, I was told to refrain

from engaging
in strenuous activities.

So…

No sex?

[CHUCKLES]

You're so silly.

- Here, sit down.
- [INHALES DEEPLY]

Join me for breakfast.

Isabel?

Sir?

- Drew's eating.
- Okay, sir.

[INHALES, EXHALES DEEPLY]

Are you having Mister Panyong's
case re-investigated?

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

Drew,

were you listening to
my conversation with Cherry?

I just happened
to pass by your room.

Well…

There's no more development
in Mister Panyong's case.

Eat up.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

"Fire, One Died"

"General Luna - a woman died
when a farm burned down."

Heidi Magwayen?

She's Cherry's mom!

What is Paco up to?

Did he discover something?

I think he knows something,
but he's not telling us.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[GASPS]

[PANYONG] No secret remains
hidden forever.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Thank you.

It'll be available
in 20 minutes.

Hey.

What are you doing here?

You haven't been
answering my calls.

Don't do this here.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Are you avoiding me?

I thought it was just a fling?

It didn't mean anything.

Seb, I want more.

Please.

Let's not do this here.

If you won't show up later,
I'll cause a scene.

Stop it, Florabelle.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Hi!

Uh, hi!

This bar of yours is so nice

even if it's just
for poor people.

I like it here.

[COLLEEN CHUCKLES]

- Oh, thank you.
- [CHUCKLES]

Uh…Also, if you don't mind,
the adobo was a bit bland.

- Who's the chef?
- Uh… [CHUCKLES AWKWARDLY]

Me.

Oh, no. I-I'm sorry.

- I didn't mean to--
- It's fine. No worries.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Oh no!

Oh no.

[PANTING]

My letter!

[WHIMPERS]

Where is my letter?

Where is it?

[PANTING CONTINUES]

Where is my letter?

My letter!

W-Where is it?!

Where is it?

The letter!

Where is it?

Where?!

T-The letter.

[PANTING CONTINUES]

My letter!

Where? Where?!

Oh no! Oh, no, no, no!

Where is… my letter?

Where is it?!

It is not here! No! No!

[SOBBING]

Where is it? No!

Wh-- Oh, no!

My letter!

My letter is gone!

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

"Panyong, I know what I'm
about to say is unforgivable.

What happened to Heidi
wasn't a mere accident.

Freddie ordered someone
to do it."

- [CHERRY] Love, what happened?
- [TIRES SCREECH]

[CHERRY PANTING] Are you okay?

Yes, I'm fine. Don't worry.

I'm not the one
that got hit by a car.

His name is Lando.

How is he?

Well, it's a good thing
his injuries aren't severe.

But, he has no place to go.

Is it okay if I take him
to the center?

Of course.

But I can't accompany
him just yet.

I have to go somewhere.

I'll meet Mister Lando
tomorrow.

Lando.

Love?

I see you've met him.

Mister Lando,

how have you been?

[PACO] It's a good thing this
didn't land in Cherry's hands.

Mister Lando is so persistent!

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

What do you know
about this, Dave?

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[TORI] Sir Drew!

Sir, please!

Please pull over to the side!

Please, please, please!
Please pull over!

- [EXHALES LOUDLY, PANTING]
- [ENGINE RUMBLING]

Do you have a death wish?!

- [EXHALES DEEPLY]
- Uh, sorry. Are you okay?

[SIGHS HEAVILY]

Do you want to die, Sir Drew?

- [BREATHING HEAVILY]
- I'm sorry.

Did you get hurt?

Sir, I'm your employee.
We can't go on like this.

You have to tell me
if there's a problem.

I'm sorry.

There's just a lot
on my mind right now.

Like what?

My family.

There you go.

Just let me know
if you need company,

and I'll come with you.

You want to get away?

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]
I'll take you home.

Are you sure?

Wait, where do you live?

I'm renting an apartment.

Hop on!

Okay. [CHUCKLES]

[TORI GRUNTS]

- All good?
- [SQUEALS, GIGGLES]

Drive carefully, okay?

Okay.

[ENGINE STARTS]

- Ready?
- Yeah.

[ENGINE REVS]

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Come in.

Do you want some water?

- Sure. Thank you.
- Okay.

I didn't know you liked
joining beauty contests.

[CHUCKLES]
Can't you tell by my looks?

I don't think you mentioned
taking up nursing.

It's in my resume.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

I got you a glass of juice.

Thank you.

Um, who's this guy?

Uh, that's my dad.

And this kid is you?

Yeah.

Cute.

Who? My dad?

[SCOFFS]

You.

[CHUCKLES AWKWARDLY]

But you know, your dad…

He looks familiar.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Or maybe I'm just mistaken.

- I'm not sure.
- [CHUCKLES] Maybe.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

What's wrong?

Let's stop this.

I love my wife.

You love her?

Yet you gave in
with just one touch.

Colleen and I were just
having a problem that night.

Okay?

I was just lonely.

That's what you all say.

[SCOFFS]

Please.

Don't you have a partner, too?

Yeah.

But I'm happier with you, Seb.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

You should be happy with him.

Because I'm choosing
to be happy with Colleen.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DOOR OPENS]

[DOOR CLOSES]

Nimfa, have you seen
Mister Lando around?

No, I haven't.

Cherry?

You say you're
looking for Lando?

Yes, Miss Belen.
Have you seen him?

I saw him crying earlier
at the center.

What happened?

He said he got robbed.

What was stolen?

Was the thief caught?

Where's Mister Lando now?

I asked Allan to accompany him.

He was so furious.
He wanted to fight Sir Paco.

What?!

Why are you always
so grumpy?

It's like you resent
the world or something.

[CHUCKLES DRYLY, SIGHS]

See? You're frowning again.

It's probably just because
I'm frustrated.

You? Frustrated?

Yes.

Do you know that feeling

when you want to fix your life
and make it better,

but every time
you try to do that,

something gets
in your way, and…

it just brings you back
to your past?

It's like your past is
constantly holding you back.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

You know,
Chuck Palahniuk once said,

"Your past is just a story.

And once you realize this,
it has no power over you."

So…

Just think of it as a story.

At least you learned
something from it.

Don't let it control you

because you're stronger
than your past.

That's more like it!

You know, when you smile,

you look more handsome
because your dimples show.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

Do you like me?

What?

Yes or no?

If I say yes,
will you kiss me?

Yes.

Yes.

[THRILLING MUSIC PLAYING]

- [PHONE RINGING]
- [MOANS]

- "Papa"
- [TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Hold on. [GROANS]

- [RINGING CONTINUES]
- Oh no.

- Go hide! Quick!
- Why? What's wrong?

My father's video-calling me.

And?

He'll get angry if he sees you.
He'll be surprised.

- But why?
- Just come here!

Alright, help me hold this.

- [CLEARS THROAT]
- [RINGING CONTINUES]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Pa.

Are… Are you with someone?

Huh?

No way. Here, I'll show you.

See? I'm the only one here.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

- Mister Lando--
- I saw him here.

Sir Paco's not here.

- Let's just go home.
- No, he's here.

- You won't find him here.
- I'm sure he's here.

- There he is! You're bad!
- Hey!

- Mister Lando, wait--
- You bad man! You thief!

- It's okay.
- You thief!

- Mister Lando, calm down.
- No! You're a thief!

- Calm down!
- [HUFFING]

You stole it, you evil man!

- You're bad! [BREATHES HEAVILY]
- Wait. Please calm down.

It's okay.
I'll take it from here.

Mister Lando, you love food,
right? You love food.

There's a lot of food inside.
Do you want some?

Don't worry,
I'll give you lots of food.

But you have to calm down
first, okay?

- There you go. Okay.
- [BREATHES DEEPLY]

Very good, Mister Lando.

Trust me, there's
lots of food inside.

Let's go. Come--

- Bad man! You thief!
- Mister Lando! Ouch!

- Wait!
- You thief!

- Mister Lando, that's enough!
- [MEN GRUNTING]

- Mister Lando! Mister Lando!
- Love, wait.

Ma'am Cherry, he's a thief!

- He's a thief! He's a thief!
- What are you--

- Love, stay away from him.
- [LANDO] You're evil!

I'll stab you again!

[PACO] You're spouting nonsense.

Hey, calm down. Stop this.

Mister Lando, why are you
hurting Paco?

He took my letter!

He went to my house!
I saw him!

He stole my letter!

Give it back!

Is that true?

Love, I don't know what
he's talking about, okay?

Get away from him.

- Don't come closer.
- Bad man!

Mister Lando, enough!

- You're evil!
- Enough!

- You stole it. You thief.
- Mister Lando, stop it.

Please take Mister Lando home.

Tomorrow, we'll take him
to a mental hospital

before he hurts anyone else.
Go on, take him home.

- [GRUNTS]
- Mister Lando.

- Please hurry, Mister Allan.
- Let's go home.

[ALLAN] Don't worry
about your letter.

We'll find it at
your house, okay?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[GROANS] Thanks, love.

Take care of that wound.

Oh, this is nothing.

It reopened during that scuffle,

but it doesn't hurt, love.

Be honest with me, Paco.

Is it true?

I told you, no.

No?

Mister Lando didn't stab you?

No.

And don't ever go near
that Mister Lando, okay?

We don't know
what he might do.

Just stay away from him.

I know you, Paco.

You're lying.

- Love--
- You're hiding something.

Okay, fine.

I'll tell you the truth.

I didn't get into an accident.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

It's true.
Mister Lando stabbed me.

Why didn't you report him?

What for? I didn't want him
to suffer any further,

so I let it go.

Why did he stab you?

And where did it happen?

At the community center.

- And nobody saw you?
- That's right.

Nobody.

It wasn't at his house?

Love…

Mister Lando is
a crazy person, remember?

He says and sees
all kinds of nonsense.

He's insane.

The letter.

He said you stole
a letter from him.

What letter?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Love, I didn't steal a letter.

And besides,

why would I care
about his letter?

There's no letter, love.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Ma'am! Ma'am Cherry!

- Ma'am Cherry.
- Mister Lando.

So, do you want me to
teach you how to read now?

The letter's gone.

What was in that letter?

Come. Quick. Come with me.

- What?
- Come with me.

Where are we going?

- Come! Hurry! Come!
- Huh?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Here.

Dead.

There was a body?

The letter came
from the body.

Then, I saw it.

The body, they dumped it.

Did you recognize the body?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Mister Lando, the corpse.

Did you recognize it?

Corpse.

Dead. Not alive.

Mister Lando, do you remember
what the corpse looked like?

Yes. Yes, ma'am. Of course.

[VOICE BREAKING]
Did the corpse look like him?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

- Mister Lando. Look closely.
- That…

- That's…
- Was it him?

That's Brod Pete.
I saw Aga Muhlach!

I saw him! Aga!

- Mister Lando, look closely!
- [CHUCKLES]

That's Brod Pete!

- I saw Aga!
- I'm not playing games!

- Was it him?!
- I told you, I saw Aga!

- It was Aga!
- Mister Lando!

Aga. [CHUCKLES]

- That's Brod Pete.
- [SOBS]

I saw Aga--

[CRYING]

Papa…

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[CRYING]

I know the Estrellas
are known for

being kind, generous,

the perfect family.

You have a mistress!

- Seb?
- I don't have a mistress!

This is Florabelle Ramirez,
Governor's EA.

Chill! Relax!

I don't bite.

I wish pimples were all
we had to worry about.

Well, life is not meant
to be simple nor easy.

That's what family is for.

To help lighten your burdens.

Mister Lando got it from
the body near the cliff.

Cherry can't know about this.

She's my wife.
She deserves to know the truth.

It's the only thing we can do.
That's it.

I can't stop thinking
about Mister Lando.

I have so many questions
running through my head.

Love, let's not talk to anyone
about Mister Lando.

- They might think…
- What?

That you're losing your mind.
