[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

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--



[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

[CRYING]

Papa…

[CHERRY CONTINUES CRYING]

You! You were there!

What?

You were there!

I saw…

I saw you!

You were there!

You…

You're the killer.
You're the killer!

What?!

You were there! I saw you!



It was you! It was you!

You! You're the killer!

It was you! I saw you!

[BIRDS CHIRPING]

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

Love?

Love.

I've been looking for you.
Where were you?

I was with Mister Lando.

What?

Why?

I went to check on him.

He took me to a cliff, Paco.

A cliff?! Love!

Why did you let him
take you there?

What if he hurt you?

He said he found the letter
on that cliff.

Letter?

That letter again?

Love, what does that letter
have to do with us?

He got it from a dead body
that was on that cliff.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Paco…

My father's body
was found near that cliff.

What if he got that letter
from Papa?

What if he knows something?

What if he saw
what happened to Papa--

Love, I don't know.

I wouldn't know.

Why should we believe
Mister Lando?

He's not right in the head.

I have a hunch
he knows something!

"Hunch"?!

That won't hold up
in court, love.

- What good will that hunch do?
- I don't know!

But I'll have to hold on
to that hunch, Paco.

I'll hold on
to any glimmer of hope

that I can get justice
for Papa.

For my father.

Love…

That's why I want
to help Mister Lando.

I want to know if he has
the answers to my questions.

Love, please.

Let's help Mister Lando.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Hey, Cherry.

Why aren't you ready yet?

They're waiting for us.

[WAVES CRASHING]

[TORI] Wait. I look good here.

[TORI GIGGLES]

Be careful taking selfies.
You might trip.

Tsk! You'll save me anyway.
Right, sir?

I'll think about it.

- Oh!
- Hey!

Be careful!

- You might hurt yourself.
- [CHUCKLES]

Don't be too excited, okay?
Relax.

Well, I do want to relieve
some stress and chill.

But look over there.
Seems like they're in cold war.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Let's just go.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CHERRY]
Pa…

We'll figure out
what really happened.

It may be hard
to achieve justice,

but I promise…

we'll get it eventually.

[PACO]
Could it be true…

that Mister Lando
got the letter

from Mister Panyong?

How are you connected
with all this, Pa?

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PACO] Love?

- [FESTIVE MUSIC PLAYING]
- [CHEERING, APPLAUSE]

- Whoo!
- [APPLAUSE]

[FESTIVE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CHEERING, APPLAUSE]

- Thank you.
- Enjoy your stay.

- Hello! Welcome, everyone!
- Hey! [CHUCKLES]

- Congratulations.
- Thanks for coming.

- Drew! Hello!
- [DREW] Hey, Becca.

- Thank you.
- It's beautiful here.

I'm sure it will be a hit.

It's pretty.

Guys, thank you so much
for coming.

Well, let me make your stay
even better with…

free drinks!

- Wow! Nice!
- For everyone!

[CHUCKLES]

Dave.

Congratulations.

- Thanks.
- The place is beautiful.

You and Becca did great.

Well, I'm lucky
to have Becca here.

[PACO] What do you know
about what happened, Dave?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Yeah.

You sure are lucky.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Dave, your resort's beautiful.

Thank you.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[COLLEEN] Cherry.

Are you okay?
Still dizzy from the boat ride?

A bit.

The waves were too big.

Cherry, you can rest in one
of our rooms if you want.

Do you need rest, love?
Let's go.

I'm fine.

Looks like Cherry's fine.

We're all fine, right?

So, let's all grab
a drink and…

take a shot! [CHUCKLES]

This is a happy event!
[CHUCKLES]

[DREW] Thanks, waiter.

[BECCA] There they are.

Hey, guys!

How's everyone?

Good.

Let me get you all a drink.

Becca, it's a bit early
to have some drinks.

Oh! It's never too early
for a mojito!

Becca, can you show me
to the restroom?

[BECCA] Sure. It's this way.

Do you remember that time

when we would always race
to the beach?

- [SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]
- [CHUCKLES]

[DREW] Of course.

You would always lose.
[CHUCKLES]

Wow.
That's rich coming from you.

Well, if you didn't know,

Dave just let you win
each time.

[DREW SCOFFS]
I know. Paco told me.

He did?

Paco, why did you tell him?

Because he's a sore loser.

[CHUCKLES]

He hates losing.

No.

I just didn't want
to lie to Drew.

He needed to know the truth
so he'd get stronger.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Why do we need to get old?

Don't say that.

You're still young
compared to me.

Me, too.

Well, it's true.

You're old. I'm old.

We are all old.

[DREW] Right?

Well, you're right.

We're not kids anymore.

We no longer need protecting.

[PACO SIGHS]

I wish pimples were all we had
to worry about. [CHUCKLES]

Or getting home before curfew.

[CHUCKLES]

Well, life is not meant
to be simple…

nor easy.

But that's why
your family is there.

To help lighten your burdens.

[PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING]

[SIGHS HEAVILY]

I'm not going anywhere.

I'm staying here.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

Love?

Love.

I don't understand.

What don't you
understand, love?

This.

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

I can't stop thinking
about Mister Lando.

I'm so confused.

I have so many questions.

Sorry, love.

I'm sorry.

I know we're supposed
to be happy.

We're supposed
to be celebrating.

I'm ruining the mood.

- Love, listen--
- Love.

I miss Papa so much.

[SOBBING]

I understand, love.

I'll find a way.

We'll help Mister Lando.

We'll have Mister Panyong's case
reinvestigated.

Okay?

Stop crying.

Thank you, love.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

[MUSIC FADING]

Hey, Cherry.

Are you okay?

[GLOOMY MUSIC PLAYING]

Of course.

You've been staring at Seb.

What?

Really?

I was worried
he'd start melting.

Dave, why don't you
give Seb a job?

Let's hire him in the company
to keep him occupied.

Did he tell you something?

Are they having problems?

Ask him.

[GLOOMY MUSIC CONTINUES]

Okay.

Let's see.

Cherry.

Excuse me.

- Yes?
- Do you have a minute to talk?

Of course.
What's this about?

Let's go somewhere private.

[GLOOMY MUSIC CONTINUES]

Uh, Seb, hey.

Is something wrong?

What did Cherry say to you?

She didn't say anything.

Well then, there you go.

Seb, I'm just
checking up on you.

Are you okay?

I'm okay.

You have nothing
to worry about.

Seb, come on.

- If this is about money…
- [SCOFFS]

…or self-fulfillment,

you can join us
and work at the farm,

so I can watch over you.

I'm not a baby, okay?!

I don't need a babysitter!

Seb, tell me
what's really going on.

- You want to know?
- Yes.

Okay, here's what's going on.

You're all so nosy!

I don't know where you got
the idea that I'm not okay,

but I'm fine!

Don't project
your problems on me,

- and stay out of my business!
- Seb, Seb!

Chill, okay?

I'm just concerned
as your brother.

My brother? Really?

[SCOFFS]

As my brother,
you should've realized

that we deserve a share
in Papa's inheritance.

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

So, that's why you're upset?

I'm upset because
you gave it all to Cherry!

So, don't pretend
that you care about us.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

What's going on?

Remember when you asked me
how Seb and I were doing?

I was just checking up on you.

Cherry, do you know something?

About what?

[SIGHS]

Seb has been acting weird
these past few days.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

I can't help but wonder if…

What do you mean?

He's always on his phone.

He won't even leave it
on the table.

He brings it with him
to the bathroom.

Colleen, maybe he's just waiting
for an important call.

A call?

I'm not stupid, Cherry.

I'm a woman.

[COLLEEN SOBBING]

I can tell that
something's different.

My instincts are never wrong.

What is your gut telling you?

I think…

[INHALES SHARPLY, SIGHS]

I think he has a mistress.

- [SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]
- [SOBBING CONTINUES]

I just don't know who.

[SOBBING]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

[BECCA] Make sure to try
our scuba diving services.

This way.

Governor Arevalo.

Thank you so much for coming.

You have a gorgeous resort.

- As gorgeous as the owner.
- [LAUGHS]

I'm glad that you liked it.

And who's this beautiful lady?
Your daughter?

Oh, no.
I'm Florabelle Ramirez.

I manage Governor's image
around his constituents.

In short, I handle his PR.

- Mm, okay.
- And she's great at it.

- Becca Lazaro.
- Nice to meet you.

[DAVE] Hey, hon.

Oh, Dave.
This is my partner, Dave.

Have you met Gov. Arevalo?

Gov. Very nice to meet you.

- Welcome to our resort.
- Thank you.

And this is Florabelle.

Florabelle, this is Dave.

Of course, I know him.

General Luna wouldn't be
the same without the Estrellas.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

The vibe seemed off
when we arrived.

What?

What do you mean?

Are you and Cherry okay?

Of course.

We're okay.

But…

The people around us

are causing problems
in our relationship.

Is this about Dave again?

If you're still fighting,
then you shouldn't have come.

No, this isn't about the party.

There's this person
whom Cherry's been talking to.

About what?
Who are you referring to?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Nobody.

Someone who isn't right
in the head.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Sir Drew!

Chug! Chug! Chug!

Cheers!

- [SIGHS]
- Come on, Sir Drew.

Don't be a killjoy.

It's not every day that I get
to try alcoholic jelly.

No. Not now, Tori.

Hmm?

Don't you want to join
your family?

They seem to be having fun.

That's what you think.

You know nothing
about my family.

Don't be so sure, sir.
I know a lot of stuff.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

What are you two
talking about?

Um, nothing, Paco.
I just got dirt in my eye.

I'll go join Seb.

Okay.

Was it about Mister Lando?

No.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Love, don't tell anyone
about Mister Lando yet, okay?

Let's wait for the results
of the investigation first.

I told you, it wasn't
about Mister Lando.

Then what was it about?

[SIGHS]

It's about Colleen's
personal problem, okay?

Okay.

But, love, when it comes
to Mister Lando,

let's just keep it
to ourselves, okay?

People might say that…

Say what?

That you're not
thinking straight.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Okay?

Okay.

Let's head back.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

I feel like I'm losing
my mind here.

Why?

I'm not used to the province.
Unlike you. You can tolerate it.

Well…

I have someone
who keeps me stronger.

Someone who keeps me sane.
[CHUCKLES]

Dave.

That's nice.

What about you?

Don't you have a "love"
that keeps you sane?

Oh, no. Hardly.

Because instead of
bringing me peace of mind,

my guy just drives me
more insane.

[SIGHS]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

What did you talk about?

Nothing. That's between us.

Is it about me?

Or about what you told Dave?

You spoke with Dave?

Hey.

I heard my name.
What's going on?

I only asked Dave
if he could talk to Seb

because he might want
to join Cuatro.

[SCOFFS]

Why didn't you talk
to me, then?

- So you're mad again.
- I'm talking to my wife.

If it's alright with you,
just stay out of this, okay?

Cherry and I just thought
that Seb could join the farm

so he'd have
something else to do.

Is that all?

Are you two going
to fight again?!

When will you learn
to lower your pride?

- Me and Paco?
- Duh, who else?!

And you, Cherry!

All of you!
Mind your own business!

- You're controlling our lives!
- Seb!

What?! It's true!

I just want you two to be okay!

Keep your voices down!

The guests can hear you!

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

This is why I didn't
want to come.

All you do is fight.

If you want to know
what we talked about,

let's go talk someplace else.

- Why? Just spit it out!
- You really want to know?

- Yeah!
- Okay, fine!

I told Cherry that
I'm having doubts about you!

I think you're having an affair!

What?

Seb!

Is that true?

You're having an affair?

No. I'm not.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

You don't believe me?

Hey, guys!

Hi.

This is Florabelle Ramirez.

The governor's PR manager.

Have you all met her?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Hey, guys!

Nice to finally meet
the Estrellas!

Anyway, it's time
to make a toast.

So, we can all proceed there.
Come on, let's go.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I just really want
to thank everyone,

all of you, for coming.

And, of course, for letting us
be part of this community.

I know the Estrellas
are known for…

being kind, generous,
the perfect family.

But what I have discovered
as an outsider

is that for them,
family is not just important.

For them,

family is everything.

And to Dave, my partner…

Congratulations to us!

This is our first baby.
[CHUCKLES]

I'll definitely work hard to be
a worthy part of this family…

one day.

Someday.

Cheers!

- [WOMAN] Cheers!
- [CHUCKLES]

- Woo-hoo!
- [BECCA] Cheers!

- Thank you, thank you.
- [APPLAUSE]

[GLOOMY MUSIC PLAYING]

What are you doing here?

What? Aren't you happy
to see me?

Belle, I thought
I made it clear.

Whatever happened between us,
it meant nothing.

Why do you seem scared?

There is no "us."

It's not like I'm asking you
to marry me or leave your wife.

Shh! Belle!

Cut it out!

Okay! Chill!

Relax!

I don't bite.

[GLOOMY MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING]

[CHERRY]
Don't die on me!

Don't die on me!
[SOBS]

[PENSIVE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DAVE]
I regret letting you go…

and leaving you.

- [SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]
- [WAVES CRASHING GENTLY]

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

What's wrong?

Can't sleep either?

I guess I'm just not used
to this place.

Well, we could use
some feedback.

Is it because of…

the bed? Or the room?

Is it uncomfortable?

I just have a lot on my mind.

I can tell.

I don't think there's a bed
that can make you fall asleep.

[DAVE EXHALES LOUDLY]

Let's go. It's getting cold.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Can we talk?

- Paco…
- Paco.

We just bumped into each other
at the beach, okay?

Okay.

But we still need to talk.

It's about the business.

Love.

This isn't about you, okay?
Don't worry.

You should rest.

[SMOOCHES]
I'll join you in a while.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I know what you're thinking.

I'll put an end to it, okay?

Are you satisfied now?

But this stays between us.

For now, let's forget about
our misunderstandings.

There are some things
I need to know.

Like what?

Why did you give
all the inheritance to Cherry?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Paco, I already told you.

Seb doesn't care
about the farm,

Drew is unstable,

- and you--
- We both know…

that's not the real reason.

Is there another reason?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Isn't it because of this?

- What's this?
- What do you know about that?

"What happened to Heidi
wasn't an accident.

Freddie was behind it…"

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BREATHES DEEPLY]
Is this true?

Yes.

I also saw
the newspaper clippings about…

- Oh my god.
- …the death of Cherry's mom.

- Wait. Where'd you get this?
- From the lunatic.

What?

Mister Lando got it
from a corpse by the cliff.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Do you think that was
Mister Panyong's corpse?

Wait, wait…

What? I'm confused.

W-What does he have to do--

What do you mean
by Mister Panyong?

The corpse where this letter
was taken from!

My question is…

Do you think that was
Mister Panyong's corpse?

[WHISPERING] How did he…

Oh, shoot…

[DREW]
There's so much blood!

- Drew, what happened?
- There's so much blood!

- Drew!
- I think I killed him.

I think I killed him!

[FREDDIE]
I've taken care of it.

What did you do, Pa?

I got rid of the body.

[WHISPERS] No…

It can't be…

Do you think Papa
had something to do

with Mister Panyong's death?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Yes.

Are you sure?

Yes, Paco.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Oh my god.

That's why you gave Cherry
all the inheritance.

That's right.

That's the real reason, Paco.

She needs to know about this.

She deserves to know.

And then, what?

- What?
- She has every right to know!

Once she knows,
she'll hate you.

The same goes for me,
Drew, and Seb.

She'll despise
our entire family!

Even though he was
her second father,

she'll see Papa as a criminal!

It's my wife
we're talking about!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

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

She won't see you
the same way again, Paco.

Or any of us, for that matter.

[SOBBING]

I don't want
to ruin our marriage.

[PACO SOBBING]

I can't let that happen.

I love her so much.

I don't want to hurt her.

[SOBBING]

What should I do?

Paco…

We need to hide
the truth from her.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

It's the only thing we can do.

That's it.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

Is there anything else
we can do

aside from
laying off employees?

Look for connections

so we can influence
those in power

and have control
over the port.

But that's impossible.

Unless…
you're the governor or mayor.

He said his favorite son can
fit in the political scene.

He was referring to you.

I'm running for mayor.

What made you
suddenly want to do this?

I want to help people.

But you don't have
to be a mayor to do that.

Are we running a charity now?

He knows something
about Papa's death.

You monster!

- That's mine!
- Mister Lando!

- Leave!
- Mister Lando!

Paco!

I understand

that you have a bigger problem
than my concerns.

He's leaving right now.
End of conversation.

Mister Lando is leaving.

And so am I, for now.
