[MENACING MUSIC PLAYING]

Thanks.

By the way, thanks for
taking care of Cherry.

Don't mention it.

None of us want Cherry
to get hurt.

[BREATHES HEAVILY]

How did you escape, anyway?

Someone helped us,

but we don't know
who that person was.

Well, if that's the case,

then we should thank
whoever that is.



[SIGHS DEEPLY]

So…

It was Drew?

[INHALES] It's true.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

It was him who killed
Mister Panyong.

And our father killed
Cherry's mother.

We're a family of murderers,
Paco.

[INHALES DEEPLY]

Why… [EXHALES DEEPLY]

Why didn't you tell us?

Why did you keep it a secret?

What for, huh? Tell me.

So you'd also carry this burden?



That's not a valid reason.

We're Cherry's family, Paco.

We're the only ones
she has left.

And I wasn't going to let her…
[INHALES SHARPLY]

…lose us, too.

- Look, if you were in my place,
- [SNIFFLES]

you would've done that, too.

No, no.

I would've fought for Cherry.

I would've chosen her
and protected her.

You're right.

You should protect her
from people like us.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Paco, we don't deserve her.

She doesn't deserve everything
we're putting her through.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

She doesn't deserve this, Paco.

[DAVE SCOFFS]

[VOICE BREAKING]
I… I fought for her.

I did everything I could.

I really did.

Paco, I know you don't
want to hear this.

[DAVE INHALES DEEPLY]

But I love Cherry.

[SIGHS HEAVILY]

I love your wife so much.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

The day after Drew
killed Mister Panyong…

Papa forced me
to go with Drew to America.

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

He told me to forget everything,

help Drew, and move on
with our lives.

But the truth was…

[PACO SNIFFLES]

I-I didn't want to leave Cherry.

[BREATH QUIVERING]

[SIGHS] I really didn't want to.

But I had no choice.

Drew needed me
at that time. [SOBS]

Our family needed me.

We will do anything
for our family, right?

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

[INHALES DEEPLY]
Those days I was in America…

were the saddest days
of my life.

Papa told me…

[SNIFFLES] …he would
send Cherry away.

He would give her a better life.

- [PACO SNIFFLES]
- [BREATHES HEAVILY]

I didn't expect
that what he meant was…

he would allow you
to marry Cherry.

We love each other.

I know, Paco.

And…

she deserves someone like you.

Because you love her so much.

But us…

Us, Paco…

We deserve this.

[SNIFFLES, SIGHS]

We deserve this.

[DAVE SIGHS]

And that is my life's
biggest regret.

I shouldn't have left Cherry.

[SNIFFLES]

I should've just
told her the truth.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

It's kind of funny, isn't it?

I mean, I accepted it.

It's so hard. [SNIFFLES]

It's so unfair.

That you can be happy
while I'm suffering.

I'm by her side.

I'm by her side when she
was hurt because of you.

Paco…

believe me…

I really want to be by her side.

I want it so bad.

[PACO SNIFFLES]

I don't want to be selfish
anymore.

[DAVE SNIFFLES]

[PACO SNIFFLES]

Now… [SNIFFLES] Tell me, Paco.

Had I told you this sooner…
[SNIFFLES]

…would it have
changed anything?

I still would've fought for her.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

I still would've fought for her
no matter what.

I would've done
everything I could

so Cherry wouldn't have
to go through all that.

I would do everything.

I saw how she fell.

I also saw how
she stood back up.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

All I want
is for her to be happy.

That's how much I love her.

Well…

[SNIFFLES] That's why
you deserve her.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

You deserve her, Paco.

[SNIFFLES]

Cherry and I are happy together.

I know.

I'm about to become a father.

[SNIFFLES]

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

Wow. Congratulations.

- Thank you.
- Congratulations.

Uh, you too.

[SNIFFLES]

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

But we still have work to do.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Sir, Paco Estrella for Mayor.

Paco Estrella for Mayor.
Thank you.

Mr. Seb Estrella, can we
ask you a few questions?

Uh…

Sure.

Is it true that some of your
family members were kidnapped?

It's true.

This just proves that our family
is in danger right now.

But we'll do our best
to protect each other.

We'll also make sure
to bring to justice

whoever was behind it.

How are Miss Cherry
and Dave Estrella?

They're safe now.

Cherry's still recovering
in the hospital.

That's why Paco's
not here right now.

He's taking care of his wife.

You see, my brother believes
that family is everything.

And I also believe that family
should always come first.

So, in the same way,

the people of General Luna
are also like family to us.

So I can assure you that
if Paco becomes the mayor,

we'll prioritize the well-being
and safety of everyone.

Thank you.

[CLAPPING]

You!

- [TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]
- I know it was you, Victoria!

How dare you do this
to your family!

You have no remorse!

Don't even try to deny it.

How could you do that
to your father?

Huh?

There is nothing for me to deny!

It was me.

I helped Cherry and Dave escape.

- Aah!
- [GROANS]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

I only did that
because I love you!

[SOBS] We're not like them.

- [SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]
- [BREATHING HEAVILY]

We're not bad people.

We know how to forgive.

[CHUCKLES SARCASTICALLY]

Let's see where
that forgiveness takes you!

[SOBS]

I spent my entire life
resenting the Estrellas.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SNIFFLES]

I can't take this anymore,
Mama Erl.

It's just too much.

I'm done.

I hate the person I've become
because of my anger.

[SOBS] We're not like this.

Let's just live like
ordinary people, Mama Erl.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOBBING, SNIFFLING]

- [SIGHS HEAVILY]
- [SOBBING, SNIFFLING]

I no longer want…

to live in anger.

[SOBS]

I no longer want
to seek revenge.

[SNIFFLES]

I just want a peaceful life.

[SOBBING]

Let's free ourselves from anger.

[SNIFFLES]

[PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING]

[MUSIC FADES]

Oh, good. You're finally home.

I thought you'd never
leave Cherry's side.

Becca, my family's going
through a crisis right now.

A crisis?

What about us, huh?

[BECCA SCOFFS]

Even when you got kidnapped,
you were still with her!

That's exactly my point.

I was kidnapped!

But being jealous of Cherry Red
is all you care about?

[SCOFFS] How about you?

What do you care about?

Why don't you care
about me and your child?

We were left here
worrying about you,

while you chose to monitor
Cherry Red's condition

in the hospital.

Why, Dave?
Are you even a doctor?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[SCOFFS]

You're so selfish.

[SOBS] You're so selfish.
It's too much.

Didn't it cross your mind to ask

if I was eating
or sleeping well?

We were so worried about you!

Becca…

It's so hard to love you, Dave.

You only need me and your child
when it's convenient for you.

[SOBS]

You're so mean, Dave.

You're horrible.

Becca.

[BREATHING DEEPLY]

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

I'm done.

I give up, Dave.

I can't do this anymore.

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

Becca.

[SIGHS SHARPLY]

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SIGHS SHARPLY]

[PACO] Watch your step
when we go inside.

[CHUCKLES]

I must say,
you were great earlier.

Hmm… [CHUCKLES]

Thank you.

You were great, too.

[CHUCKLES]

You naughty guy.

I was referring to the speech
you gave the reporters earlier.

What about it?

You know, you're a
natural politician.

The way you answered
the questions

and endorsed your brother…

You could be a politician
if you wanted to.

Maybe next elections?

[SCOFFS] Never.

- I'll never do that.
- Never say never.

Look at us.

Look where we are now.

The world of politics is messy,

and so is the rest of the world.

But you know what, Seb?

With you, I feel at peace.

I feel like an ordinary person

living a normal life
when I'm with you.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

But, Belle, this isn't normal.

What part of this is normal?

Us.

Our world is different
from everyone else's.

It's normal.

Seb, I will leave
everything for you.

Why don't you leave
your boring wife?

Let's just create more
adventures together

in our own little world.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

Pa…

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

What is he doing here?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Get out.

Out!

Pa, he's…

The Estrellas are not
welcome here.

Pa, please…

You're all Satan's minions!

[TORI] Pa…

Tori. [BREATHES DEEPLY]

Mister Ramon…

I'm so sorry.

I'm sorry.

[INHALES DEEPLY] I'm so sorry.

[INAUDIBLE]

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

I'm sorry.

Sorry.

[SOBS]

[INHALES SHARPLY] I'm so sorry.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry…

Sorry.

[SNIFFLES, SOBS]

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
I'm sorry…

Sorry.

[SNIFFLES, SOBS]

I'm so sorry.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.

[SOBS, SNIFFLES]

I'm so sorry.

I'm sorry. Sorry.

Sorry.

[PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING]

Paco.

What happened?

Who did that to you?

[SNIFFLES, EXHALES SHARPLY]

[SNIFFLES]

It was Papa.

- [SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]
- [PACO SOBS, SNIFFLES]

He did this to teach me
a lesson.

Maybe I deserve this.

Come over here and sit down.

No, no. I'm fine.

Your arm's starting to swell,

so just sit down, all right?

[WATER TRICKLING]

[CHERRY SIGHS SHARPLY]

Give me your arm.

Be gentle.

[PACO SNIFFLING]

- Ow!
- Sorry.

Why did your dad
get mad at you, anyway?

I don't want to talk about it.

Just tell me.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SNIFFLES]

Papa got mad because…

I gave Mister Gustin
some of his money.

He thought I stole
the money for myself.

[SIGHS]

Maybe you should've
asked properly.

I'm sure your dad
would've understood.

You just wanted to help
Mister Gustin.

Are you still upset
with Don Freddie?

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Don't worry, Paco.

You know, your dad
loves you so much.

He was probably just surprised

that's why he punished you
like this.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Maybe.

- Do it gently.
- Mm.

Sorry.

Ow… [SUCKS TEETH]

- [UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]
- [DAVE CLICKING TONGUE]

What did you do?

Actually, I didn't do
anything wrong, Dave.

So, why did you get
a beating from Papa?

I saw him beating up
one of the farm's employees.

What? But why?

Because he couldn't
pay his debt on time.

[SIGHS SHARPLY] S-So…

Is that employee planning
to press charges?

I don't think so.

Papa threatened to kill him.

Did anybody see them?

Just me.

That's why he was furious
when he saw me.

[SIGHS] We can't tell Seb
and Drew about this.

But Cherry Red already
saw me like this.

Maybe it's best if she
doesn't know the truth.

She looks up to Papa
and our family.

She might become afraid of him
if she finds out

that he's capable
of such horrible things.

Shouldn't we warn her, at least?

What if Papa hurts her, too?

Do you want to drive her away?

Of course not.

[EXHALES DEEPLY] Okay.

Let's keep this
from Cherry for now.

But if she does
find out… [SIGHS]

Let's just protect her
from Papa's wrath.

We're her family.

We need to keep her safe.

Okay?

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING]

"Panyong, what happened
to Heidi wasn't an accident."

[PACO]
I will have to keep fighting

to save our family.

I can't lose all of this.

[PENSIVE MUSIC CONTINUES]

What kind of family is this?

I'm your mother.

Not even one of the Estrellas
told me that you were kidnapped.

I heard it from our neighbors.

[SOBS] You were even shot.

[BREATHES HEAVILY]

Aunt, stop crying.

- [SNIFFLES]
- I'm okay.

What if you're not?

What if you died?

What are they going to do?

Keep your corpse?

Without me knowing
what happened to you?

Aunt, they just don't want you
to worry.

- [SOBS]
- You know Paco.

He was just thinking of you.

Your blood pressure
might go up again.

Now you're defending them

[SNIFFLES]

They are my family.

And so are you.

I don't want you to hate them.

And…

[SIGHS] I'm fine.

[VOICE BREAKING]
Do you need some blood?

[SOBS] I can donate some.

Aunt…

I don't need blood.

I'm okay.

Oh, Cherry Red.

If something happens to you,
your dad will haunt me.

[SNIFFLES, SOBS]

I'm okay, Aunt.

[SOBS]

Oh!

[CLICKS TONGUE]
All right. [SNIFFLES]

I'll get the tamarind stew
I made for you.

I know it's your favorite.

To make you feel better.

- Aunt.
- Mm?

You know that chicken stew
is my favorite, right?

I know.

But I have a lot of tamarind
at home

that's why I made tamarind stew.

- [SOFT CHUCKLES]
- Oh, you.

All right, Aunt.

Oh. Seb's back.

The stew's not done yet.

[SEB SIGHS DEEPLY]

[CAR DOOR OPENS]

Thank you.

[FLORABELLE] Seb.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[SOBS]

[SOBBING]

[SOBBING]

[POUNDING]

- [SOBBING]
- [POUNDING CONTINUES]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

[SEB] Do I make you
feel giddy, Colleen?

[COLLEEN]
If you weren't handsome,

I'd probably like you.

So you're into ugly guys,
is that it?

Let's just say
I'm a realistic person.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

You're my lucky charm.

- Love you.
- Love you.

[SEB] I make a lot of mistakes.

But I just want you to know

that no matter how chaotic
the world gets,

we'll always stay
together, Colleen.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SEB] Of course not!
I'm not cheating on you!

This is Florabelle Ramirez.

She's the Governor's publicist.

Nice to finally meet
the Estrellas.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOBS]

[SOBS]

[SOBBING]

I'm such an idiot!

It was happening
right in front of me,

yet I didn't even
notice a thing!

It's not your fault.

[SOBBING CONTINUES]

I told him that he should
have a dream in life.

But it turns out,

what that bastard wanted
was someone prettier,

sexier, and smarter than me.

Colleen,

you're pretty, you're sexy,
and you're smart.

You have it all.

[SNIFFLES]

Then why did Seb do that?

[SOBS]

How could he do that?

I always knew he was a playboy,

but we made a vow to each other.

"For better or worse."

Do promises mean nothing now?

Tell me, Cherry!

Were those words meaningless?

- [SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]
- [SOBBING CONTINUES]

Go ahead.

Let it all out.

[CRYING]

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Paco.

You wanted to see us?
What's this all about?

[INHALES DEEPLY]

I've made my decision.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

We have to keep the truth
from Cherry.

Are you sure?

I don't want her to get hurt.

We're happy.

She was happy
with the life we had

before all of this happened.

And I can't make her
go through so much pain

because of what happened
in the past.

We mustn't let Cherry know.

I agree.

- Thank you.
- No!

No!

Don't thank me.

I'm only doing this for Cherry.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

And for our family.

Right?

Besides, the elections
are coming up.

And I need to win.

Then, how about Seb?

Let's not drag Seb into this.

It's better if he doesn't know.

For his own sake.

We just have one problem
right now.

We need to find out
who else knows about this.

Have you gotten any information
on the kidnappers, Paco?

[PACO] The police are
still investigating.

The Governor's helping, too.

I will make them pay

for all the trauma
they caused my wife.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Paco…

You need to know something.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

What are you doing, Tori?

Come on, Mama Erl!
We don't have to leave!

Nobody will touch us.

You'd seriously believe
the youngest Estrella brother,

when he's the murderer?

You know, you're a smart girl.

You're not like me.
That's why I love you.

You let your head decide,
not your damn heart.

They won't have us arrested.
I trust Drew.

Men never tell the truth.

They're all liars to the core!

Will you please wake up, Tori?

Otherwise, we'll all
end up in jail!

But, Ma--

No buts!

Think about your father!

We have two options:

go to the police and
tell them everything we know,

or pack our things and leave.

You know how powerful
that family is.

And whoever has power
and influence

controls the police.

So start packing!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Why are you still
standing there? Move!

Mama Erl, I think the van
you rented is here.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

What are you doing here?

Those who become fools for love
only end up in jail.

I told you, they're all liars!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

We're sorry for
coming unannounced,

but I'm sure you know
why we're here.

You'll have us thrown in jail?

Then do it!

You really are shameless!

Go ahead, but we'll make sure

that we will expose
the Estrellas' dirty secrets!

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

That's not why we're here.

Mister Ramon…

I want to apologize

for what my family did to you.

[RAMON]
I'm permanently disabled!

You ruined my life!

Your apology's useless!

We also want to
make it up to you.

So, here.

Five million.

In exchange for your silence.

[ERLINDA] Five million?

After what you did
to my brother!

That's not nearly enough!

He was a victim of your crime,
yet you're ripping him off?

Then I'll double it.

Ten million.

Aside from that,
I won't send you to jail

for what you did to my wife.

Why should we trust you,
when there are cops outside?

They're just here
for our security.

Ten million.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[RAMON] Fine. 10 million.

We'll keep our mouths shut,
and you won't have us arrested.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[CHERRY]
I'm still confused, Dave.

About what?

My feelings.

[REPORTER] We hereby proclaim
Mr. Paco Estrella

as the new mayor
of General Luna.

[CLAPPING]

[CHEERING]

Madam, are you ready?

[CHUCKLES]

Hold on,
I'll just get something.

Love?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[CHERRY] What have you done?

[CRIES, GRUNTS]

[SCREAMS]

- Love?
- [CRIES]

[CRIES]

Love.

Love!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SUPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]
