[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

Mister Lando is dehydrated.

And it seems he hasn't eaten
in the past few days.

Doc, what about his wounds?

They seem to be scratches
from thorns and barbed wires.

We also gave him

an anti-tetanus shot
just to be safe.

[SIGHS]

Poor Mister Lando.

What could've happened to him?

I'll be honest
with you, Cherry.



It's going to be hard
taking care of Mister Lando.

He needs psychiatric help.

I'm quite knowledgeable
about psychiatry,

but it's not my specialization.

So, you're saying that
we have to take him

to a psychiatric hospital?

Sadly, we don't have
any facilities

here in General Luna.

You can take him to
the Capitol or in Manila.

I can refer you to someone.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Okay, doctor.

As long as Mister Lando
gets better.

Mm-hmm.



[BREATHES DEEPLY]

[SIGHS]

Vote Paco Estrella
for mayor.

Vote for Paco Estrella.
Thank you.

Good day, sir.
Vote Paco Estrella for mayor.

He's running for mayor.

Hi, ma'am!
Good day, ma'am.

- Vote Paco Estrella for mayor.
- Yes, sir. Good day.

Where's Ma'am Cherry?

- Love.
- Love.

What happened?
Where were you?

Our supporters were
looking for you.

Sorry. My phone
ran out of battery.

I came from the hospital.

The hospital?

Why? What happened?
Are you okay?

I went there because
of Mister Lando.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Mister Lando again?

I saw him passed out
on the beach.

What did the doctor say?

His condition is terrible.
All his trauma piled up.

He needs to be taken

to a psychiatric hospital
in the Capitol.

Love…

I'll have him transferred
to a better hospital

where he can receive
proper care.

Okay?

Thank you.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SMOOCHES]

I'll take a shower.

[GRUNTS]

[EXHALES SOFTLY]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

Mister Lando.

Eat this so you can
regain your strength.

That way,

when you get transferred
to another hospital…

Huh?

I-I'm leaving this place?

Mister Lando, you have to.
You need better health care.

I don't want to.
I don't want to leave.

[VOICE BREAKING]
I'll stay here.

- Mister La--
- No.

Mister Lando.

[SOBBING] I'll stay here.

I don't want to go!

- Mister Lando.
- [SOBBING] I don't want to go!

[SOBBING]

I'll stay here.

I don't want to go. [SOBS]

I don't want to!
I'll stay here!

- Okay.
- [SOBBING] I'll stay here.

Doctor, I hope…

you can get
the best doctors

to attend to Mister Lando.

I feel sorry for him.

I hope you don't mind, but…

You aren't related to
Mister Lando.

Why are you so obsessed
with his case?

[CHUCKLES]

Honestly, I don't know.

I don't get it either.

Maybe I really am obsessed.

I have so much going on
in my head…

…and in my heart right now.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

Sometimes,

I just feel like…

…I couldn't have
peace of mind.

My thoughts just keep running.

[SNIFFLES]

And it's exhausting.

What is it that
you always think about?

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

Just listen to them, okay?

Just do as they say

so you can recover faster.

[SNIFFS]

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[LANDO SNIFFS]

[SOBBING]

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

Don't worry, Mister Lando.

I know you'll be back someday.

- [LANDO SNIFFS]
- [CHERRY SNIFFLES]

You'll get better.

C-Cherry?

[SOBS] And we'll see
each other again.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

C-Che…

[SNIFFLING]

Cherry? Cherry?

C-Che…

Che…

- [SNIFFLES]
- Miss Che.

- [CHUCKLES SOFTLY]
- Miss Che.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

Miss Cherry.

[SNIFFLING]

[SOBBING]

Goodbye.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOBBING]

[MURMURING] Miss Cherry…

Miss… Miss Cherry?

The letter…

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING]

[PENSIVE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Sorry for coming home
late, love.

[SMOOCHES]

Where were you?

Uh… I visited Auntie Ebs…

…and then checked up
on Mister Lando.

Mister Lando again?

I wanted to see him before
they transferred him.

- Is that so wrong?
- No.

But didn't we have
an agreement?

Weren't you supposed
to support me?

I am supporting you!

But you weren't there.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Shouldn't you be with me
during my campaign?

You know, love,

lately, you've been distracted.

You're worrying about
a lot of things

instead of thinking about
the ranch's needs or mine.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I get it. I'm sorry.

You're right.

I have a lot on
my mind right now.

But, love, could you please…

…not do this right now?

Please don't argue
with me right now.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I'm sorry.

I don't know what's
happening to me.

Love…

[GLASS BREAKS]

- What's that?
- Love?

Becca…

You're pregnant?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

- What happened?
- Somebody broke into…

…your father's office, sir.
He was fuming.

What's going on, Paco?

Love, I'll handle it.
Just stay here.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Ma'am, don't go there.
It's dangerous.

Who broke in?

- Where? Where is it?!
- [DRAWER CLATTERING]

Where's my letter?!

Give me back my letter!
[HUFFS]

[LANDO]
Give me back my letter!

Mister Lando!

- Give it back!
- Mister Lando!

Give me back my letter!

- I said give it back!
- [DRAWER CLATTERING]

- Love, stay back.
- [LANDO] Give it back!

- Mister Lando, get out!
- My letter!

- Give me back my letter!
- [TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SLAMMING]
Where's my letter?!

- [GRUNTING] Give it back!
- Call the cops.

- Hurry!
- Mister Lando!

- Mister Lando!
- Love, no!

- Mister Lando!
- Go away!

Mind your own business!
Just give me back my letter!

I don't have it!

- Get out of here!
- [SOBBING] My letter!

- [PACO] Get out!
- My letter!

- I don't have your letter!
- Paco, what's happening?

[TENSE MUSIC BUILDS UP]

- [ENGINE REVVING]
- Hey!

Where are you going? Hey!

Hey!

[DREW]
I love you so much, Lando.

Forever, Cherry.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

You.

- You're evil!
- [CHERRY] Mister Lando!

You're evil! I will kill you!

I'll kill you!

[GRUNTS]

I'll kill you!

[GRUNTS]

[GROANS]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Love.
Love, are you okay?

[INHALES DEEPLY]

[DREW COUGHING]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DAVE EXHALES SHARPLY]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Uh, are you sure?

Maybe we should take
another test.

I already did two.

[SIGHS SHARPLY]

Becca, I'm sorry. I--

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

I'm not sure how to react
to this news.

Maybe you can start
by asking questions.

How did this happen only now

when we've been
having sex every night?

[PACO] Love…

Everything's settled.

Mister Lando will be taken
to the hospital to get treated.

It's all taken care of.

Sir Paco, can we have
a word with you?

- What is it about?
- Uh, sir…

Maybe you should consider
hiring security.

You need it, especially now
that you're running for office.

You and your wife
could use the extra protection.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[FIRE CRACKLING]

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

Look, Becca.
We'll take care of our baby.

Of course,
I'll take care of my child.

This is my baby.

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

- [MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]
- [SIGHS SHARPLY]

I just didn't expect
you'd react that way.

I thought you'd be happy.

Becca…

- Look, I am happy.
- [SCOFFS]

I thought you'd be excited

about becoming a dad.

But it was naive of me
to expect that from you.

Right?

[SCOFFS]

Becca, look…

I am happy.

Really?

You're happy?

Then, why don't you
look like it?

[SIGHS]

You're too nice
for your own good, Cherry.

He even found out
where we live.

I never thought
he'd do something like that.

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

I've grown too fond
of Mister Lando.

Maybe because
he reminds me of Papa…

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

…and what happened to him.

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

This is all my fault.

No.

This is not your fault.

You should rest now.

Don't stress yourself
over these things anymore.

Whatever it is that
Mister Lando told you…

It probably meant nothing.

Maybe you're right.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Becca, I'm sorry.

Look, I just
didn't expect this.

This is all new to me.

- [SNIFFLES]
- To us.

Look, I will stay with you…

…and with our baby.

[SNIFFLES]

I'll stay beside you
throughout this journey.

[SNIFFLES]

What do you want?

- [SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]
- [SNIFFLES]

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

I haven't thought about it.

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

[PHONE BUZZING]

Drew, what's up?

What?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[SIGHS]

Alright. I'll be there.

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

Becca, I'm sorry.
I need to go.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

All men are the same!
They just keep your hopes up!

I gave him everything,
and this is how he repays me?

You didn't make dinner?

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

We had this for lunch.

[WOMAN ON TV]
I'm not Chip's mistress!

No.

[WOMAN ON TV]
You're unbelievable!

What did you do all day, then?

Watch TV?

I didn't feel like
doing anything.

Seriously?

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

Or maybe I'm just tired.

I haven't felt this tired
in so long.

You're tired?

From what?

[VOICE BREAKING] I don't know.

I don't know.

[SNIFFLES]

I'm just tired. [SNIFFLES]

What's the matter with you?

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOBBING]

[RATTLING]

[LANDO] Where is it?

Where is my letter?!

Give me back my letter!

[PACO] Mister Lando!

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[GLASS SHARDS CLATTERING]

Love?

Just leave it there.

I'll have Nanny Dagay
clean it up.

You might hurt yourself.
Just leave it there.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I think he was trying to get
something from Papa's drawer.

What could it be?

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

I don't know.

But he was saying something
about a letter.

Drew, Mister Lando
is a lunatic.

He stabbed Paco, remember?

Paco said Mister Lando
failed to get the letter back.

But even so, Dave,

Mister Lando knows what happened
to Cherry's father.

He saw Mister Panyong's body
being dumped off a cliff.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

So what?

Like I said, he's a lunatic.
No one would believe him.

I know Cherry would.

She thinks Mister Lando
knows something

about her father's death.

Also, I heard her
and Paco talking.

[BREATHING ANXIOUSLY]

They're planning

to reinvestigate
Mister Panyong's case.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Paco won't do that.

- How do you know?
- I'm sure of it.

What does he know
aside from the fact

that the letter was
retrieved from a corpse?

Nothing!

I don't know, Dave…

I'm scared.

Relax, okay?

There will be no investigation.

You need to rest.

You're too uneasy.

For now, our secret's
still safe.

I don't know, Dave.

I really don't know.
[INHALES DEEPLY]

Drew.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[LINE RINGS]

Hello?

Where are you?

Paco.

Is everything okay?

Was anyone hurt?

Where's Cherry?

We need to talk.
Let's go to my office.

[PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING]

[LANDO GRUNTS]

I'll kill you!

[GRUNTS]

- [THUD]
- [GROANS]

[PENSIVE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Where have you been?

I went out for a walk.

Let's go to bed?

Okay.

I can't believe that aside
from being irresponsible,

you're also a cheater.

If I catch you red-handed
and confirm my suspicions,

I swear I'll kill your mistress!

What are you talking about?!

[SCOFFS]

I'm just reminding you,

in case you forgot.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Paco, this letter has to go.

- You should burn it!
- No.

Why not?

This will only bring us trouble.

If you can't burn it,
then I will.

I was the one who found this,

so it's my call.

What if Mister Lando
comes back?

I'll make sure he'll never

step foot in this house again.

What about Cherry?

She believes that
Mister Lando knows something.

He won't get anywhere
near Cherry.

- And the letter?
- I'll keep it…

so Cherry won't find it.

Just dispose of it!

Dave, this letter
concerns my wife!

Leave it to me.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

You know what, fine.
Suit yourself.

That letter is
your responsibility.

But I'm telling you,

if that letter gets out,

it's going to be the end
of our family.

I know.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DAVE SIGHS SHARPLY]

Where's Cherry?

How is she?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Sir Drew!

I was surprised
when I got your call.

Why do you want to see me
this late?

And yet you're here.

Well, how could I resist you?

I couldn't say no
to those dimples.

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

Come on. Smile, will you?
I want to see those dimples.

Please? Show me those dimples.

Come on. Smile.
There they are! Oh my!

Thank you, Lord!
I so wanted to see them.

My day is finally complete.
I mean, my night.

[LAUGHS]

I know you're not only after
my dimples.

Hey, I'm not that kind of girl!
You're such a perv.

What's perverted
about what I said?

What I mean is…

you want to see me because
you have a crush on me.

Silly! You're not my crush.

You're my boss.

Oh, really?

That didn't seem to be the case

when we were
at the apartment.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

If you don't like me,
then why are you here?

Well, why did you call me?

I need you.

I need someone.

Whatever it is,
I'm here to listen.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

Cherry.

Hey.

Oh.

What brings you here?

I heard about what happened.

[SIGHS]

Were you hurt in any way?

I'm okay, Dave.

I wasn't hurt.

[SIGHS]

[GLOOMY MUSIC PLAYING]

I was so worried about you.

What if something
happened to you?

Dave.

I said I'm fine.

Don't worry.

Cherry.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

I care about you.

Thank you.

[GLOOMY MUSIC PLAYING]

I've made so many
mistakes in life.

Some of them…
[INHALES DEEPLY]

I don't know how
to fix anymore.

It's so hard to
get back up again.

Know what I mean?

Is that what's been
bothering you?

Yes.

Among other things.

In your opinion, Tori,
do you think…

people who made mistakes…

…deserve a second chance?

I guess so.

Maybe.

You don't sound so sure.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

I'm sure of it.

Take the sun, for example.

It may set for now,

but with every sunrise
comes second chances.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

I like that.

"Second chances."

Actually, that's not why
I asked you to come.

Really?

T-Then, what?

I have a crush on you.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

[TORI CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

Good morning, ma'am.

- Love.
- Yes?

Don't you think we have
too many bodyguards?

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

It's alright.

It's safer this way.

But no one has ever
broken into our house,

except for Mister Lando
who is now at the hospital.

Love, we can't be too sure.
This election could get messy.

It's better to be prepared.

You mean our lives are at risk
because of your candidacy?

Love, if that's the case,
then you should back out.

Seriously, love?
You want me to back out?

If this'll put your life
at risk, then--

Love, nothing bad
will happen to me.

Okay?

Wait, where are you going?

I'll go campaigning.

I'll get going, okay?

Good morning, sir.

Look after her, okay?

Copy, sir.

[AMANDA] What did he say?

He said we'll raise
the baby together.

That's good, then.

You have him wrapped
around your finger now.

Are you serious?
That's not what I want, Ma.

[SCOFFS] Are you crazy?

What is it
that you really want?

You know what?
I'm hanging up!

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[BECCA] Dave.

Hey.

How are things there?

They're all fine.
No one got hurt.

Okay. That's good to hear.

Uh… Dave?

I've been thinking…

Since we're going to be
a family soon,

why don't we get married?

What?!

Let's get married.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

You've been carrying that
the whole time.

Where'd you come from anyway?

Uh, I was on a catwalk.

There was a pageant, and I was
eyeing the cash prize.

No wonder you have a crown.
I thought you just bought it.

Hey! Excuse me.

You don't buy a crown,
you win one.

I won first princess, you know.

I see.

Seems like you dazzled
somebody today.

- Didn't I dazzle you?
- [ROMANTIC MUSIC PLAYING]

- [CHUCKLES]
- [GIGGLES]

It's just a crush.
I wasn't dazzled.

Tsk. [HISSES]

Geez, Tori.

Your expectations are too high.
It's just a crush.

It's not like he'll marry you.

[CHUCKLES] You're so weird.

The same goes for you.

You're weird. I'm weird.

We're like two broken,
shiny, beautiful things.

Okay. [CHUCKLES]

[TORI LAUGHS]

Uh, can I sleep over?

What? You're overreacting.

Please? I don't want
to go home yet.

[ROMANTIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

You're just going
to sleep, okay?

Becca, where is this
coming from?

I know we've agreed
in the past

that we're not
the marrying type,

unlike any other normal couple.

But, everything's different

now that a child
is in the picture.

All of a sudden,

I want a normal,
complete, happy family,

a house, and a dog.

Don't you also want that
for our kid?

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Becca, I understand that
what you want has changed.

I also want what's best

- for our child.
- Yeah.

- I know you want that, too.
- But, Becca…

I can't get married yet.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

I have to say no.

Ma'am, where are you going?

I'm heading off
to the ranch to work.

Wait, ma'am, Sir Paco asked us
to watch over you.

Oh. You must have
gotten it wrong.

You're supposed to
be watching this house

and making sure that
nobody comes in.

No, ma'am.

Sir Paco asked us
to keep an eye on you.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

I'm Paco's wife, Cherry Red.

And I have work to do.

We know, ma'am,
but he gave us his orders.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

What? Does this mean
I'm not allowed to go outside?

How can I work?

You should ask
Sir Paco, ma'am.

[LINE BEEPS]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Tell those guards to leave
or I'll make a scene.

Love, they're here
to protect you.

They're not protecting me.
They're keeping me locked up.

Am I cow at the ranch?!

I just want to make sure
that you're safe.

Who would hurt you or me?

I can't sneak past
my bodyguards.

Can you help me?

Okay.

I'll deal with them.

Do what you need to do.

You weren't born rich.
You have no other choice.

We're okay like this, right?

We're okay with
not being a couple

or not being together.

Vote Paco Estrella for mayor
in the upcoming election.

Why would we vote for you?

You're a family of criminals.

"I know your family's secret!

I know what you did
to Panyong

and the crime
you've been hiding."
