[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

"I know about your
family's secrets!

About Mister Panyong,
the Magwayens, and the crime."

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[STAFFER]
Sir Paco, are you ready?

Um…

[STAFFER] Are you okay, sir?

Yes, yes. Uh…

You guys go ahead.
I-- I'll be right there.

- Okay, sir.
- Go on.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]



"I know about your
family's secrets!"

Mister, please put extra milk
in the ice scramble.

Thanks.

You really know my order, huh?

Of course. We used to
come here every week.

Milk with a little ice scramble
for Cherry Red.

[CHUCKLES]

There.

- Thank you.
- Here, mister.

Oh.

Thank you.

- Let's sit down.
- Mm.

Thank you.

I was able to breathe a little.



What's wrong?

Have you been suffocating?

Only because of my bodyguards.

But I'm okay.

Cherry, why…

Why did you see a doctor?

Would you feel better
if you told me?

It's nothing.

Just some random stuff.

Some thoughts that
might not even be true.

Such as?

It's a secret. [CHUCKLES]

You're not my doctor.

[LAUGHS]

Cherry.

I know you.

You're think
about other people's welfare.

Even though
it's not your problem…

you want to solve it.

You want to make sure
everything is okay.

You want to make sure…

everything is in place.

I guess I just want
our family to be okay.

But, Cherry, you should also
learn to accept…

…that our family
won't always be okay.

So it's okay to breathe
every once in a while.

You're right.

Maybe I'm just tired.

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

How about you guys?

How are you and Becca?

[EXHALES SOFTLY]

I'm going to be a father.

Becca's pregnant.

Really?

Congrats!

Thank you.

I'm happy for you.

That's good news.

You think so?

Yeah.

As long as you're both happy.

Especially you.

Are you happy?

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

Yeah.

Of course.

[VENDOR] Ma'am, sir,

would you like to buy
a balloon for your kid?

Uh… We're not together.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

[VENDOR] WOULD YOU LIKE
TO BUY A BALLOON?

Back then…

We used to always dream
of becoming good parents.

But a lot has changed.

[SNIFFLES, SIGHS]

Hey.

Cherry, hey…

Are you okay?

Hey, what's wrong?

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY] I'm okay.

- I'm fine.
- Hey…

Maybe I'm just tired.
[CHUCKLING]

[SNIFFLES, CHUCKLES]

I'm really fine.

[EXHALES LOUDLY]

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

I'm okay.

[PHONE RINGING]

Hello, love?

[PACO] Cherry, I thought
it's clear to you

why you need security.

And then, you go missing?

Where--

Cherry, where are you?

Love, we just went somewhere.

"We"?

What do you mean "we"?
You escaped from the bodyguards!

Who's "we"?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

I'm with Dave.

[MUSIC STOPS]

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

One more round?

I'm done.

You're tired already?

I saved up my energy
so we could do it all night.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PHONE BUZZING]

Hello?

[AREVALO] Where are you?

[FLORABELLE] I'm on my way home.

Hurry. I want you here now.

[EXHALES SOFTLY]

Oh, you… I was just trying
to make you miss me.

Well, it's effective.

So hurry up.

All right, Governor.
I'm on my way.

I'll see you!

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

I didn't hire those guards
for no reason.

But, love,

who would want guards following
them wherever they go?

It's suffocating!

You know full well
that's not my intention.

I do! But I hope
you understand me, too.

I've also got obligations
outside the house.

Our lives can't stop
just because of this.

So, you called Dave?

I had to get out.

I just asked for his help.

Right. And where
did you need to go?

To the doctor.

Why?

What happened? Are you okay?

I just went for a consultation.

About what?

About Mister Lando.

For crying out loud!
Mister Lando again?

Have you forgotten that
he stabbed me before?

He broke into our house
and attacked my brother!

Because he's ill!

It's not safe to be around him!

He's a dangerous person.

I thought you said
we're going to help him.

You promised!

Cherry, what do you think
I'm doing right now?

I'm getting him treated,
aren't I?

Isn't that enough?

What else do you want me to do?

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[DOOR SLAMS]

Cherry.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

Hi, love. Good morning.

Come, let's have breakfast.

Okay.

Do you want some coffee?

Yes.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

Okay.

- Let's add sugar--
- No sugar, please.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

I'm sorry I didn't know…

how you like your coffee.

But, love…

I know what you need.

I just want to protect you.

That's all.

I want you to be safe.

Because if anything bad
happens to you…

I don't know…

I don't know what I'll do.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

I'm so sorry for
raising my voice at you.

I'm sorry for
the hurtful things I said.

Paco…

Hmm?

We're still
in this together, right?

Of course, love.

We're a team.

Can you join me as I go around
for my campaign?

I want you by my side
through all of my battles.

No matter what happens…

the two of us will always
have each other.

Come on, let's eat.

Just don't drink coffee.

Let me get some rice.

Babe, have some breakfast.

I can't. I'm running late.

What?

But you didn't eat dinner
last night.

Paco's campaign ended late,
so I got home late, too.

I know. You guys have been
very busy with the campaign.

By the way, I want to join you.

Huh?

Can't I? I'm an Estrella, too.

You don't need to do that.

But I want to.

I want to help.

Suit yourself.

This coffee's too bitter.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[SIGHS]

You cooked breakfast?

I was waiting for you
all this time.

Um…

I already ate.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

So, you've had breakfast,

but you didn't even bother
telling me?

Well, I can eat again.

Becca, Stop!

You just wasted food!

Well, it was also
a waste of my effort!

Becca, I said stop!

Forget it!

Becca!

What's the matter with you?

I told you I'll eat it.
I'll join you, okay?

[SOBS]

If you keep this up,
you'll starve our baby.

You don't understand!

[SOBS] I feel so alone here!

Becca, hey…

- [SNIFFLES]
- You're not alone. Okay?

I'm here for you.

I'm here.

[DAVE SIGHS DEEPLY]

[SNIFFLING, SOBBING]

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

I'm here.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

It must be the hormones.

It's fine.

Have a seat. Let's eat.

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

Our baby must be hungry.

Here.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SNIFFLES]

- [BRIGHT MUSIC PLAYING]
- [ENGINE RUMBLING]

[TORI] It's here, right?

Yeah. We're here.

All right.

- [CHUCKLES SOFTLY] Wow!
- [CHUCKLES, GRUNTS]

[BOTH CHUCKLE]

You're getting good at this.

If you weren't my boss,
I would've never ridden this.

Will you stop complaining?

At least, you learned
something new.

Right.

Can I have some of that?

[BRIGHT MUSIC PLAYING]

- [LAUGHING]
- That was close.

Oh.

By the way,
I have some good news.

What is it? No work tomorrow?

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY] I wish.

Do you remember
the university I applied in?

I passed!

[BRIGHT MUSIC CONTINUES]

C- Congratulations, sir!

- [CHUCKLES AWKWARDLY]
- Aren't you happy for me?

Of course, I'm happy for you.

You should be.

I just really wanted
to share this with you.

You're the only one
who knows about it.

How come?

I just think it's really special
to share it with someone

I can achieve my dreams with.

Let's go somewhere. My treat.

- Okay.
- I'll drive.

No, I'll do it.

I can drive faster.
I'll do it. [CHUCKLES]

What a gentleman.
You're making me blush.

Let's go.

[ENGINE TURNS OVER]

- You ready?
- Yeah.

[TORI] Whoo!

Long day?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Is there a problem?

[SCOFFS]

When did we ever
not have a problem?

[SCOFFS]

[LIQUID POURING]

Paco, what's wrong?

[LOUD THUD]

So, uh…

It is true.

Papa had something to do
with Mister Panyong's death.

"I know your family's secret"

Hmm…

You know,

I know it's possible,

but for the longest time,
I refused to believe

that Papa was capable
of hurting others.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

But now,

I've confirmed it.

Our dad…

He is…

…a monster.

He's a monster!

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

Paco, Papa is gone now.

All we have is each other.

We need to protect our family

from whoever this person is.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC SWELLS]

Can you think of anyone
who could be behind this?

I have no idea.

But I'll have someone
look into it

and track them down.

All right. I'll do my own
investigation, too.

[DAVE SIGHS SHARPLY]

Paco…

If this gets out…

our entire family will suffer.

We'll lose the farm

and our family's reputation
will be destroyed.

It'll affect Cherry Red, too.

It'll hurt her the most.

That's why this can't get out.

What are you talking about?

It's already out.

Someone else knows about it!

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

Paco, you need to focus
on the goal.

And that is becoming mayor.

Okay? [SIGHS]

Once you're in office,

you can put a stop to this.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

How?

Tell me.

Paco, haven't you realized

why plenty of people
are interested in politics?

Sometimes, it's not enough
to have money.

You need to be in a position.

And once you become mayor,

you'll have the power
and connections

to bury this secret.

Paco…

This can save our family. Okay?

This can save your marriage
with Cherry Red.

Once you secure your victory,

you can keep this secret
hidden forever.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I only care about Cherry.

I understand.

I've been unreasonable.

I'm treating her like a prisoner
in her own home

just to stop her
from investigating further.

Because I'm afraid.

I'm afraid of what may happen
if she finds out.

What does the person
who sent this want?

They want money.
That's for sure.

What do they know?

I've no clue.

I don't know.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

What if they email Cherry next?

What if they tell her
everything we've been hiding?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I can't always
keep an eye on her.

Look, Paco…

Focus first on your goal
to win the election.

I'll deal with Cherry.
I'll keep an eye on her.

I will make sure

she doesn't find out
about our secret.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Trust me, Paco.

This concerns our family, too.

All right.

Fine.

I'll trust you on this one.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Keep an eye on my wife.

I will. You can trust me.

I don't want to lose Cherry.

And I don't want
our family to be ruined.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

Were you guys still talking
about Mister Lando?

Were you eavesdropping on us?

[SIGHS] I just overheard
your conversation.

Drew…

Paco already knows
that our family was involved

in Mister Panyong's death.

[SIGHS] How about our secret?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Drew, he doesn't know
you were the killer.

Okay? He won't tell on you.

[HEAVY BREATHING CONTINUES]

What else does he know?

Well, Paco thinks it was Papa
who killed Mister Panyong.

Huh?

W- Why would he think that?

[WHISPERS] It doesn't matter.

The problem is there might
be someone else

who knows about our secret.

What?

Somebody's blackmailing Paco.

They're using
Mister Panyong's death

to extort money from him.

Who is it?

I don't know.

[INHALES DEEPLY,
EXHALES SHAKILY]

But it was Papa who cleaned up
your mess, right?

Maybe it's someone
who worked for him.

[BREATHES DEEPLY] Dave…

If this becomes an issue,

- I'll be in deep trouble.
- I know.

That's why Cherry
can't find out the truth.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

If they used to work for Papa,

then who could it be?

- Good day, sir.
- Good day.

Paco Estrella for
mayor of General Luna.

Thank you.

- Good morning, sir.
- Belle!

Oh! Becca!

- [BECCA] Hey!
- Hi!

[BECCA] Hey!

[FLORABELLE] So, you finally
joined the campaign?

[BECCA] Of course.
I have to support Paco.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

Hi!

Hello. Are you also here
to support Paco?

I'm the governor's PR manager.

Anyone who runs with him
gets my services as a perk.

Wow. You're amazing, ma'am.

Uh, Seb?

Paco and Governor Arevalo
are on the next street.

We have to meet them.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[AREVALO] Where's Florabelle?

Isn't she supposed
to pick you up?

We haven't seen her, Governor.

Well, we need to start because
the people are gathering.

- I'll look for her, sir.
- Go!

- Mayor!
- Mayor!

- Good day!
- Mayor!

- Hey, Mayor!
- Mayor!

Mayor!

- He's here!
- Good day.

Hello, Mayor!

- Hello, sir!
- Hi, Mayor!

- Governor.
- Paco.

The next mayor of General Luna.

[CHUCKLES]

Dave, why don't you say a few
words about your brother?

Tell everybody why
they should vote for him.

Sure, Governor.

- It would be my pleasure.
- All right.

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

I thought we're meeting up
with the governor.

We are.

Get in.

- What?
- Get in!

- Where are we going?
- Hurry. Get in!

[SMOOCHES]

Belle, m- my wife is here!

The windows are heavily tinted.
No one will see us in here.

Stop! My wife is here!

My name is Dave Estrella.

I'm the older brother of
General Luna's next mayor.

When Paco and I were young,

we often competed to see
who was more handsome.

[CROWD LAUGHING]

But I'm sure you all know
who always won.

But seriously, um…

Even though Paco and I
often butt heads,

there's one thing
we never fight about.

And that's our love
for our family.

[GENTLE MUSIC PLAYING]

We're both willing to do
everything we can

to protect our family.

[DAVE] We would stand
for each other…

…and we'd never leave
each other.

[GENTLE MUSIC CONTINUES]

And knowing Paco…

He treats everyone in
General Luna

as his own family.

You are all part of
his big family.

And if he becomes
the mayor of General Luna,

I'm sure that he would
never neglect you.

- Whoo!
- Woo- hoo!

- [APPLAUSE]
- [DAVE] THANK YOU.

[GENTLE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SENSUAL MUSIC PLAYING]

That's enough.
There are people outside.

They might see us.

[INHALES DEEPLY] They won't.

Wait, where's Seb?

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[CAR DOOR OPENS]

Ah!

I'll just get some
tarpaulins, sir.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[EXHALES LOUDLY]

[CAR DOOR CLOSES]

[BREATHES DEEPLY]

I wonder who among these guys
are blackmailing Paco.

I need to find him first
before the truth comes out.

Do you need help?

Ah, no. It's okay.

- Ah--
- Oh!

Let me help you.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

"FORMER EMPLOYEES"

W- What are you doing?

Uh… It's nothing.

[DREW BREATHES HEAVILY]

Let's eat?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[INHALES DEEPLY]

My treat. Let's go.

- Okay.
- Come on.

"RAMON CORTEZ"

[FREDDIE] Here.

I don't want anyone else
to find out.

Yes, sir.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

Thank you.

Of course.

And now,

let's call Mr. Estrella's wife,
the one and only…

Mrs. Cherry Red
Magwayen- Estrella!

[CROWD CHEERING]

What am I supposed to say?

Just say what's in your heart.

[GENTLE MUSIC PLAYING]

[CROWD CHEERING]

- [WOMAN 1] Go, Miss Cherry!
- [WOMAN 2] Go, ma'am!

[WOMAN 3] Miss Cherry!

- [CROWD CHEERING]
- [WOMAN 3] Miss Cherry!

- Nice one!
- Go, ma'am!

- [MAN 1] Give us a speech!
- [MAN 2] Yeah!

- [MAN 1] Miss Cherry!
- [MAN 3] Go, Miss Cherry!

[CROWD CHEERING]

Paco and I have known each other
since we were little.

We were best friends.

[CHERRY] Although we're from
different walks of life,

he accepted me for who I am.

[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

And when I needed
someone to comfort me,

he was there by my side.

[THEME MUSIC CONTINUES PLAYING]

He never left me.

Pa!

[WAILING]

[CHERRY] Paco protected me…

from all that could hurt me.

[THEME MUSIC CONTINUES PLAYING]

That's why I love him.

That's why I married him.

[CHERRY] If there's anyone
who understands me

and would protect me,

it's Paco.

[THEME MUSIC CONTINUES PLAYING]

And I'm sure that
if he becomes our mayor,

he would do the same
for all of you.

Because you are also
family to him.

Thank you so much.

[CROWD CHEERING]

[CROWD CHEERING]

[CROWD GUSHING AND CHEERING]

[THEME MUSIC CONTINUES PLAYING]

[CROWD] Paco! Paco!

[THEME MUSIC CONTINUES PLAYING]

Ah!

[CROWD] Paco! Paco!

[THEME MUSIC CONTINUES PLAYING]

What?

You traced the email
to a computer shop?

All right. Send me the address.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

Paco.

Governor?

Is there a problem?

Someone's trying to
blackmail me.

They sent me an email.

Well, you'd better
get used to it.

I want to know
who's harassing me.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

I think I can help you
with that.

What is it?

We have search warrant for you.

For what?

Just read it, sir.

Excuse me.

We just want to look
at something.

Okay, you can go out first.

- Love?
- Love.

Is someone harassing you?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

No, love.

It's nothing. Uh…

They're just playing dirty.

Well, even if they tried,

they won't find anything
they can use against you…

…or your family.

Unless there's something
I don't know about.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

But there's none.

Love…

It's nothing.

It's nothing.

[DAVE] I talked to Paco,

and I offered to
look after you myself.

[CHERRY] There's a guy
who's furious at Paco.

He said that Paco is harassing
their computer shop.

[DAVE] Paco, you have some
explaining to do to Cherry.

She found out about
the computer shop.

What are you doing here?

I'm visiting you.

And I want to be friends
with your wife

to make things easier for you.

You're resigning?

It's wrong that I'm still here.

But you make me happy.

You make me happy also, but…

[MAN ON PHONE]
If you refuse to give us money,

something will happen to Cherry.

- Dave!
- Cherry!

Hurry.
