[AREVALO] Florabelle sure
is the best strategist.

Imagine, she turned a tragedy
into a shining PR moment.

You've won over the
people's sympathy, Paco.

[LAUGHING]

They think you're the
new hero of General Luna.

Your victory is secured.

Or should I say,

…Mayor Paco Estrella.

[CACKLES]

And it doesn't hurt
that the Estrella brothers

are so easy on the eyes.



It's not hard for the public
to like them.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

I want to thank you
for all your help.

You guys kept the ball rolling

while we were busy
trying to save my wife.

So I just want to say thank you.

Of course, Paco! Anytime!

[FLORABELLE] Our standing in
the local surveys is improving.

Excuse me.

Love? Where are you going?

I'm just tired.

I'll go take a nap.

[INDISTINCT CHATTER]

[SIGHS DEEPLY]



[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

Want some beer?

[SIGHS] Things have been
stressful lately.

Women like us also need
to unwind sometimes.

[EXHALES]

You like it?
Should I get you more beer?

I'm not sure if I want more.

What do you mean?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Your beer tastes weird.

It tastes like my husband.

Excuse me?

I thought you were
only busy doing PR,

but you were also busy
doing my husband!

[CHUCKLES]

Look, um… I don't know
what you're talking about.

I know everything, Florabelle.

Sure, I wasn't raised
in the city,

but I'm not that stupid.

Don't worry.

Between you and my husband,
I hate him more.

I want to drag him to hell.

As for you…

I just want to flush your
face in the toilet.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SNIFFLES]

It's post-traumatic
stress disorder,

or PTSD.

People develop this condition

after going through
a traumatic event,

like what happened to you.

Is this really normal, Doc?

Sometimes, I don't want
my husband near me,

but I can't explain why.

Sometimes, I don't even
want to leave the house.

I get overwhelmed whenever
I see other people.

Cherry…

What you experienced
was highly traumatic.

Your life was in danger.

Can I still overcome this, Doc?

Yes.

But we can't tell for sure
how long it will take.

Doc…

I can't let this drag on.

I hate feeling like this.

We need to monitor you.

For now, it's good enough

that you're aware of
what you're feeling.

[EBS] Here you go.

A hot bowl of tinola
with moringa!

Your favorite comfort food
whenever you're sick.

I finally made you some.

- [CHUCKLING]
- [SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

Try it.

[CHUCKLES] Thank you, Auntie.

Go on, try it.

By the way, Dave,

thank you for accompanying her.

I feel uneasy
at the thought of her

coming here by herself.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

Actually, Paco and I
made an agreement…

Mm?

…that I will accompany
Cherry for him

whenever he can't.

We both want to look out for her

even if she already
has bodyguards.

If it's alright,
maybe she can stay here.

My little house is always
open for you, dear.

I don't know, Auntie.

I can't just leave Paco.

But you're sick!

That mansion is giving you PTSD.

If you stay here,

at least I can make all
your favorite comfort food.

Actually, Cherry,

- you should consider it.
- See?

I don't know.
I can't think properly.

[SIGHS] My head's all over
the place right now.

Well…

It's okay.
Don't stress about it, dear.

Just remember that even though
I'm not your real mom,

I love you like my own.

And if you need
a place to call home,

I'll be there for you.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

I know that, Auntie.

Thank you.

Anyway, dig in before
the food gets cold.

You too, Dave.

- You haven't eaten yet.
- Thank you.

I'm still confused, Dave.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

About what?

My feelings.

It's like…

…everything frustrates me.

I want to burst out crying.

Or maybe I'm just
really mad at Paco.

Why do you feel that way
towards him?

I don't know.

Maybe I do blame him.

Ever since he started
running for mayor,

we've been growing apart.

And I started feeling angry
and confused all the time.

[SIGHS]

I can't even help him.

I mean, I don't even know
how I can help myself.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[INHALES DEEPLY]
What about you, Dave?

I was also scared.

Well, you should be.

You're going to be
a father soon.

What would happen to your child

if something bad
happened to you?

- What would happen to Becca?
- Becca and I are over.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Wha--

What happened?

I guess she just…

She finally gave up on me.

Dave, are you just
going to let her go?

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

I don't know.

I feel like…

it's unfair to
chase after her…

knowing that I can't give her

even just a fraction…

…of what I can give you.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SIGHS]

She deserves to be loved…

…the same way
I've always loved you.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

Vote Mayor Paco Estrella

for the development of
General Luna!

- [APPLAUSE]
- [CHANTING] Paco! Paco!

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

[CAR DOOR SLAMS]

[DAVE BREATHING HEAVILY]

Sorry.

Cherry, you don't have
to apologize.

I still want to say sorry.

[SIGHS LOUDLY]

When you left,

Paco was there to
grieve with me.

I grieved not just for Papa,

but also for the love
that you abandoned.

That's why I had no qualms
about marrying him.

[SIGHS]

Even when you came back,

I told myself that everything
will probably be okay

because Paco and I were strong.

[SIGHS]

But to tell you the truth,

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

when you drowned back then,

I got confused.

- Dave!
- THUNDER CRASHES]

[CHERRY SOBBING]

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

I got scared, Dave.

I got scared at
the thought of you

suddenly disappearing
from this world.

At one point,
I even asked myself…

…if I only loved Paco
because I was on rebound.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

But little by little,
I learned to accept that…

[BREATHES DEEPLY]

…my love for you
will never disappear.

And yet you chose someone else.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

I love you, Dave,

as part of my family
and my past.

Yes, I got tired of you.

But Paco?

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
BY GIGI DE LANA PLAYING]

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

My love for Paco is the kind
that I can never let go of…

…even though our relationship
is complicated sometimes.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

I understand.

Dave…

[BREATHES DEEPLY]

I already gave myself
the chance to move on.

So, I hope…

…you'll also give yourself
the chance to move on.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

Love Becca with all your heart

because that's
what she deserves.

That's what your
future child deserves.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
BY GIGI DE LANA PLAYING]

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

Becca?

Becca?

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[BECCA] Dave, I already left.

I'll just have my lawyer
sort out

my investment in the resort.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Ma'am, the boat's
waiting for you.

Aren't you leaving yet?

Just give me five more minutes.

Okay, ma'am.

Becca!

- Becca!
- Dave?

Becca!

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

Marry me.

What?

Let's get married.

That's what you want, right?

Let's give our child
a normal life.

Dave…

Are you terminally ill
or something?

What?

N-No, Becca.

[SCOFFS]
Then what changed your mind?

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

I don't know.

Maybe I want a normal house…

…with a dog.

Just like what you want.

Really?

I want that, too.

- Yes.
- [CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

[BECCA CHUCKLES]

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SIGHS]

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
PLAYING ON VINYL]

I love you.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
CONTINUES PLAYING]

I love you more.

[CHERRY] Forever…

Let's stay together
forever, love.

- I love you so much.
- I love you, too.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
CONTINUES PLAYING]

I'm sorry if I haven't been

the perfect husband.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

You don't have to be perfect.

I'm not perfect either.

I've also made
a lot of mistakes.

But…

[SNIFFLES]

…we'll never give up
on each other, right?

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
BY GIGI DE LANA PLAYING]

- Good morning, Paco.
- Governor.

I hope you're preparing
your speech

because I'm sure you're
going to be our next mayor.

It's guaranteed.

- [PACO] I hope so.
- [CHUCKLES] I'm sure of it!

- Thank you for everything.
- Anytime.

- Thank you.
- Anytime. Alright.

[REPORTER ON TV] We hereby
proclaim Mr. Paco Estrella

as the new mayor
of General Luna.

[CHEERING, APPLAUSE]

Congratulations!

Whoo!

Congratulations, Mayor…

Love.

You are my lucky charm.

- Whoo!
- Woo-hoo!

- [CHEERING, APPLAUSE]
- ["AKIN KA NA LANG" CONTINUES]

- [CHANTING] Mayor Paco!
- Whoo!

[CHEERING, APPLAUSE]

[CHANTING] Paco! Paco!

[CHERRY] We're going
to become stronger, love.

We'll be together through
all the ups and downs.

["AKIN KA NA LANG" CONTINUES]

Yes, love.

Nothing will break us
apart, okay?

[EXHALES LOUDLY]

Forever. [SNIFFLES]

Let's stay together
forever, love.

[SIGHS SOFTLY]

["AKIN KA NA LANG" CONTINUES]

[DAGAY] Goodness!
Our guests are almost here!

Arrange all the chairs!

Don't forget to place
those over there, okay?

Good afternoon.
This way, please.

Just straight ahead.

Please go inside.

Put another one there.

Hurry up! Goodness.

Our guests are arriving!

Excuse me, Dave, Becca.

Nanny, where's Drew?

Oh, Sir Drew left
early this morning.

What?

Tsk. He's unbelievable.

Okay, Nanny. Thank you.

Tsk. Colleen, let's get going.

Colleen.

Colleen, I said let's go!

Wait.

[HUFFS]

Hurry up!

Tori?

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

What are you doing here?

[INHALES DEEPLY]

I went to your house,
but you weren't there.

W-What about you?
What are you doing here?

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

I was planning to work

by handing these out
around the plaza

for the inauguration.

But it's kind of embarrassing.

I don't deserve to do it.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

Well, we don't deserve
the inauguration either.

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

Drew…

Do we still have a chance?

What was it that you said
the last time?

After every sunset…

comes a sunrise.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

I'm just hoping…

you'll give me a second chance.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

You're asking
for a second chance

from someone who's broken
beyond repair?

I'm just as broken as you are.

My life's in pieces.

It's a mess.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

But, Tori…

You are my sunrise.

You made me believe

that there's still hope
for someone like me.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

Love, are you sure
it looks okay?

Isn't it too loose?

I don't want to look sloppy.

You look good, love.
It's not that loose.

You just probably lost weight
from all that campaigning.

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

My husband's so handsome.

- [CHUCKLES]
- Wow.

And my wife looks so lovely.

I mean it.

Your dress suits you.

- You look like a First Lady.
- [CHUCKLES]

Don't tell me you're aiming
for the presidency.

I'm already happy here
in General Luna.

I haven't considered that, love.

It's only my inauguration
as mayor, hmm?

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

The Governor's here.

- [AREVALO] Paco.
- Governor.

How are you? Are you ready
for the inauguration?

Yes. I'm ready.

How about you? Are you ready?

This isn't my
first inauguration.

I'm used to events like this.

Anyway, we dropped by

because I wanted to make sure
that everything is A-okay.

Everything is A-okay, right?

Yes, sir. Everything is A-okay.

Good. Very good.

Anyway, we'll get going.
I'll see you there.

- Okay. We'll follow shortly.
- Alright. See you.

Let's go.

Madam, are you ready?

[CHUCKLING]

Hold on.
I'll just get something.

Love?

Mayor, can you
please check this?

Here you go.

Okay.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

Where does he keep
that watch again?

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

Papa…

You must be smiling down
from heaven right now.

The dreams you had
for your sons are coming true.

[SNIFFLES]

[FREDDIE] I always think…

Cherry, promise me.

When I'm gone…

Don't talk like that.

When I'm gone…

you will take care of my sons.

I want them to love each other.

And that they will not abandon
each other.

Sure, Papa.

I promise.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[CAROL] Panyong,

I know what I am about to
tell you is unforgivable.

What happened to Heidi
wasn't an accident.

Freddie was behind it.

He had the farmhouse burned
down to force you to leave.

He did it so he could take
your share of the business.

That's why I'm asking
for forgiveness, Panyong.

From you and your daughter,
Cherry Red.

Even if I know
you will never forgive me.

Carol.

[CRYING]

[WAILS]

- [CRYING CONTINUES]
- [SORROWFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

Okay, perfect. Thanks.

- Thank you, sir.
- Thank you.

Paco.

You look every bit
a politician now.

Thank you. Thanks.

But I want the people to
see me as a public servant.

Well, that's fine, too.

The people also want to see
someone fabulous,

someone to look up to.

Fabulous, huh?

[BECCA AND DAVE CHUCKLE]

Hey, what time is it?
We might be late.

Well, well.

Why aren't you wearing
Papa's legendary watch?

[BECCA CHUCKLES] "Legendary."

You're right.
I'll be right back.

- [CRYING]
- [MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

How could you do that?

How could you?

- [SCREAMS]
- [FRAME SHATTERS]

[WAILS]

Love?

- [CRYING]
- [MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Love--

Don't touch me!

[SOBS] So…

That's what the letter says.

What?

This is Mister Lando's letter.

Your mother was telling
my father…

…that Don Freddie was behind
my mother's death.

[BREATH QUIVERING]

Did you know?

[SOBS]

Love…

Get away from me!

Answer the question.

No.

I…

I had no idea, love.

- Liar!
- Love, calm down.

There are people downstairs.
Please--

I don't care, Paco!

Love, calm down.

Calm down, okay?

How can I calm down,

when my own husband has been
keeping secrets from me?

[SOBBING]

Is that why you killed
my father?

Because he held evidence
of your father's crime?

[SOBBING CONTINUES]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Who was it?

- Who killed my father?
- Love…

- I don't know.
- Was it Don Freddie?

Or was it you?

No, love. It wasn't me.

- Then who?
- I don't know, love!

I don't know.

- [CRYING]
- That's enough, please--

- Stay away from me!
- Love.

Love, please.

- [CRYING CONTINUES]
- I'm so sorry, okay?

I said, stay away!

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Love…

Love, please.

Love.

- [CRYING CONTINUES]
- Love. Love!

[OBJECTS CLATTER]

- [LOUD THUD]
- [GLASS SHATTERS]

What was that?

It sounded like glass breaking.

I think someone's fighting.

[CRYING, WHEEZING]

Love.

Love-- Love, please.

Please.

Cherry. Cherry.

Don't come near me!

- Don't you dare!
- Cherry--

Um, guys.

You go ahead to city hall.
Just wait for Paco there.

But what about
Sir Paco's speech?

We'll just finalize it there.

- Okay, sir.
- Alright.

Let's go.

[EXHALES SHARPLY] Um, Becca.

- Go with them.
- What? No.

I'll wait for you.
I'll go with you.

[GLASS SHATTERS]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

You stay away from me!
I said, stay away!

Love, please.
Let's talk about this.

Talk about what?

How you kept your father's
crime a secret?

Love, let me explain. Please.

[CHERRY] How could you
do this to me?

How could your family
lie to me?

[BOTH BREATHING HEAVILY]

I don't…

[CRYING]

I don't know what
you're talking about.

Love…

[WHEEZING]

Love, please.

Please, love.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Love!

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

Love!

[DAVE] Cherry!

Love?

Cherry…

Oh my god!

Love…

Paco, what happened?

Start the car! Now!

Love?

Love?

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

What's taking them so long?

[FLORABELLE] I'll try
to call him again.

The guests are
getting bored waiting.

Tsk!

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

[SIGHS] I can't reach
Mayor Paco.

They were about to leave
when we left their house.

They should be on their way.

Um, okay. I'll call
one of his staff.

[SIGHS LOUDLY]

[LINE RINGS]

Hey.

Do you feel sick?

Hold on.

[FLORABELLE] Yes, hello?

My apologies, Governor.
My brothers are running late.

[FLORABELLE] Thank you. Bye.

There was an accident
at Mayor Paco's house.

Cherry fell down the stairs.

- What?
- Huh?

Oh my goodness!

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Love, please wake up.

What happened, Paco?

Let's talk after we make sure
my wife is safe.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

- What did Drew do?
- He…

…was the one who
killed Mister Panyong.

You monster!

Seb! Seb! Seb!

[BECCA] Is there a problem?

There's no heartbeat.

What?

[DREW] What are we going to do?

[PACO] We will make her believe

that what she saw wasn't real.

There's no letter.

I won't stop until
I find out the truth!

There's no letter.

Love.

- Cherry.
- Cherry.

Are you ganging up on me?

Brother.

Don't you dare call me brother.

Because a murderer
will never be my brother.

Love, the doctor said…

you're experiencing
mental distress.

I know what I read.

What did you read?

Your father
had my parents killed.
