[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

The wind's quite strong!

Whoo!

[SIGHS]

That's such a creepy story.

When the lawyer read Miss Carol's
Last Will and Testament,

did the Estrellas tell you
what caused her death?

Didn't Sir Freddie say
she died in an accident?

I remember him saying that, too.

That's also what the boys know.

She died in a car crash.



That's what they were told.

Dear, the fisherman
must be mistaken.

He was probably talking
about a different Carol.

I'll try to talk to him tomorrow
when he delivers fish.

Dear.

You're making things up again.

I'm not, Auntie.

You should also
talk to him tomorrow

so you'd know
I'm not making this up.

Okay.

[CHERRY SIGHS]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Drew.

What are you doing here?



[GRUNTS]

You're high again.

[BREATHES HEAVILY]

What do you care if I'm high?

Will you tell Paco again?

[SIGHS SHARPLY]

It's pointless arguing with you.

So, you're leaving?

You're really leaving me?

We're just moving.

We bought a better house
to live in.

[DREW SCOFFS]

Oh. [CHUCKLES DRYLY]

You're doing this to avoid me,
aren't you?

You're so eager to leave
and cut ties with me, huh?

I'm done here, Drew.

I hate you!

I hate you with all my guts!

And I regret ever meeting you!

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Okay, fine.

You're angry because
I told your brother?

Be angry all you want.

I only did that to save you.

For you to have a decent life.

[SCOFFS]

What do you know
about being decent, huh?!

Your family basically lives on
blackmailing others!

That's how you bought
a new house, right?

You're so cruel, Drew.

Maybe I am!

But you're no different!

My life was getting better.

Everything was going well.

It was almost perfect.

It was all because of you!

I was hoping you'd help me
fix my life.

But look what you've done.

I wish I never met you.

You're ruining me.

This is all your fault.

What else are you going
to blame on me?

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

You're responsible
for your life, Drew,

just like how I'm
responsible for mine.

[SNIFFLES]

Don't come looking for me again.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOBS, SNIFFLES]

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CRIES]

[ERLINDA] Tori.

We spent quite a lot on moving.

This house already cost us
two million pesos.

Mama Erl, I told you
we didn't have to move.

And let your father struggle
in that shabby house

for the rest of his life?

He's already crippled.

Letting him stay in that shack

would be too cruel
for my brother.

We just have to be practical.

Oh, yes. We do need
to be practical

and wring more money from Paco.

Or else, we won't have enough

for your father's
maintenance medicine.

Hey, Paco's the mayor now.

It's easier for him
to get more money.

[CHUCKLES]

No, Mama Erl.

We should stop blackmailing
the Estrellas.

What?

Paco has easy access
to public funds now.

Since they're all
awfully corrupt,

why not benefit from them?

Besides, what we're getting
is nothing compared

to how much those other
officials are pocketing.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

No, Mama Erl. We will no longer
blackmail the Estrellas.

What are you going to do
with your father?

Will you just leave him
in that state?

Mama Erl, please!

Sir Paco already gave us
10 million pesos!

We have a house
and some money saved up.

Plus, I have a job!

Isn't that enough for us
to start over?

Stop taking advantage
of Papa's condition

for your greed!

Are you calling me greedy?!
How dare you!

I could've left you and
your father years ago.

But I didn't because
he's my brother

and you're my niece!

- [SCOFFS]
- I endured and stayed with you!

Because you're using Papa
for money!

- Tori.
- Look at this girl.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SIGHS]

[HUFFING]

[BREATHES HEAVILY]

[THUNDER RUMBLING]

[SIGHS]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[THUNDER RUMBLING]

[CLICKS, ELECTRICITY CRACKLING]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[FISHERMAN] Has it been long
since you moved in here?

[CHERRY] No. We just moved
from General Luna.

The previous owner of that house
was also from General Luna.

My father and I used to deliver
fish for her too.

- Previous owner?
- Yes.

Do you know her?

Her name was Carol Estrella.

You knew Ma'am Carol?

You're familiar with her?

I don't know much
about her, though.

Oh, right.

She died early.

She actually died in that house.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

- She died in this house?
- Yes. That's right.

I was still young then,
but I can clearly remember.

They found
Ma'am Carol's body inside.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BREATHES SHAKILY]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

I brought supplies
for you and Cherry.

- [EBS GASPS]
- I brought toiletries and food.

Alright, I'll bring these
to the kitchen.

Okay.

Why did you come here?

It's pouring outside.

Well, the weather's bad,
and I don't feel at peace

without you by my side.

Auntie and I are fine.

Even so.

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

You're soaking wet.

Get changed.

[THUNDER RUMBLING]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Dear?

What are you doing?

W-What are you looking for?

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

A phone charger.

A phone charger? For what model?
I can lend you mine.

Is it for that phone?

[LAUGHS]

That's an old model, dear.

I doubt you can
find one for that.

[LAUGHS]

Oh, alright.
I'll check my stuff.

I might have a charger
for that phone.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CAROL] It's your fault
Heidi's dead.

Panyong deserves justice
for his wife's death.

You can't stop me
from telling him the truth.

You can't keep me locked up
in here forever.

- If I can't come home,
- [SOBS]

I might as well die.

It's true!

[SOBBING]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

No…

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[SOBS, GRUNTS]

Come on, come on.

Please work.

[SOBS]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

Why not leave this place
and go to Manila, bro?

You don't need your brothers.

[INHALES DEEPLY]

I don't have money, man.

[CHUCKLES]

You're an Estrella,
but you don't have any money?

My brothers have money.

- I don't.
- [SCOFFS]

Your problem's simple, bro.
We can easily solve that.

How?

How do you think I'm getting by?
Where do I get money

for these night outs?

Your parents?

[SCOFFS] They've given up
on me, bro.

You and my clients
are the ones keeping me alive.

That said, would you
like to join our business?

[DARK MUSIC PLAYING]

You mean, sell drugs?

[PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING]

[KNOCKS ON DOOR]

Cherry.

I just wanted to check
if you were asleep.

I don't want to stay here.

I want to go home.

Cherry…

Isn't it better here?

You're far from
all the chaos and stress.

You're far from all of that.

I don't want to stay here.

I don't want to end up
like your mom.

What?

End up like my mom?

What do you know
about your mom's death?

Cherry.

Well?

She died in a car crash.

Your father lied to you.

- Cherry…
- She died in here.

She killed herself
in this house.

That's nonsense.

Nonsense?

Wasn't that
what your father did?

He covered up his sins.

Your father locked up
your mother in here

because he didn't want
my dad to know the truth.

Just like what you're doing
to me now.

Of course not.

Cherry, of course not.

I just want you to be okay.
That's all I want.

Your mother could no longer take
what was happening to her

so she killed herself.

Is that what you
want me to do, Paco?

Cherry, I won't let that
happen to you.

Because I love you.

I love you.
That will never happen to you.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Go ahead…

You should rest.

Go get some rest, please.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Hey! What are you doing there?

- We'll join you.
- That's right.

- Hey!
- We couldn't sleep

so we're looking
at Venus and Jupiter.

Don't be silly, Seb.

You know,
my dad used to tell me,

if you miss someone,
you should talk to the sky.

If they're alive,

it means you're both looking
at the same sky.

If they're dead,
maybe they're in heaven.

I miss you, Mama.

Don't laugh at me.

We're not laughing at you.

[INHALES DEEPLY, SIGHS]

You know, Ma…

I wish you were here.

It was better when you were.

We felt that someone
cared for us.

[YOUNG DAVE] You know, Drew…

He's been different
since we lost you.

I miss your cooking, Ma,
specially ginataang bilo-bilo.

We also miss the sweet way
you disciplined us.

You see, Papa
always gets mad at us.

Unlike you.

We lost a sense of security
when we lost you.

[YOUNG CHERRY] Your kids
miss you so much, Ma'am Carol.

Don't worry,
I will always read to Drew.

As for your big boys,

I'll make sure
they eat properly.

[MELLOW MUSIC PLAYING]

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

I could never fill
your absence, ma'am.

But, as a way of showing
my gratitude to you,

I will look after your kids,

and I will love them
like family.

[MELLOW MUSIC CONTINUES]

- [YOUNG PACO] Ma!
- [CAROL] Hm?

You know,
Seb already has a girlfriend.

Seb?

We just text.
She's not my girlfriend.

Isn't that how
it usually starts?

You're just jealous
because you're a wuss.

Hey, cut it out.

Paco, give your brother back
his cell phone.

You boys always argue.

As for you, Seb,
have you done your homework?

You're always on your phone.

[YOUNG PACO]
He hasn't done his homework.

- You're in trouble.
- Hmm…

Go on, or else…

I'm sorry, Ma.

[CAROL] Tsk.

Psst! Cut it out, Paco.

Go back to your room.
Stop bothering your brothers.

Come on.

Go to sleep already.

- Good night, Ma.
- Good night.

- Be a good boy, okay?
- Yes, Ma.

- Good night, darling.
- Good night, Ma.

[MELLOW MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CAROL] You naughty boy.

Here. Keep your brother's phone.

[YOUNG PACO] Okay.
Good night, Ma. I love you.

- [SMOOCHES]
- I love you.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

[BREATHES HEAVILY]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[CAROL]
Heidi's death was no accident.

Freddie was behind it.

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.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

So it's true.

[GASPS]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[CHERRY] Where's the letter?

[PACO] Love, the doctor said

you're experiencing
mental distress.

If Papa had something to do
with your parents' deaths,

he wouldn't have taken you in.

He wouldn't have agreed
to our marriage.

Where is the letter?!

There is no letter.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

It's all true.

[BREATHES HEAVILY]

- Bro.
- [QUINTIN MUNCHING]

John told me about you.
He says you're okay.

I heard your brother
is the mayor of General Luna.

[QUINTIN GRUNTS]

It's normal to feel nervous.

Just don't forget…

You won't make a mistake
if you keep quiet.

Stay discreet.

[QUINTIN GULPS, EXHALES SLOWLY]

And if you ever
make a mistake…

Well, I hope you don't.

…your brother's there
to clean up your mess, right?

[QUINTIN CHUCKLES]

Where's the…

Relax. [CHUCKLES]

There's no rush. [SNIFFS]

[SIGHS]

Well, fine.

Uh… This is worth, uh…

500,000.

You can sell it for 750,000
or one million.

Be smart. I'll leave it to you.
Alright? It's up to you.

[EXHALES SLOWLY]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

I take my business
seriously, Drew.

You have
a family business, right?

So you should know.

Here's the deal.
If you don't pay me…

[SMACKS LIPS, EXHALES SHARPLY]

…you'll be sorry.

I will do everything it takes
to collect a debt.

I don't care
if you're an Estrella.

You get that?

[QUINTIN] Mm?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Go.

[SNIFFS]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Paco!

[BREATHES HEAVILY] Paco!

[SOBS] Paco!

[SOBBING]

[PACO]
Love, let's talk properly.

[CHERRY]
What should we discuss?!

How you covered up
the crime your dad committed?!

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

You didn't read anything.
The letter does not exist.

There's no letter, Cherry.

Open this!

- Cherry, there's no--
- Open this!

See?

There is no letter!

We're not ganging up
on you, Cherry.

Cherry, please calm down.

I saw that letter. I read it.

Cherry, what you saw
wasn't real.

The letter you're
talking about isn't here.

- [SOBBING]
- [EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

[SOBBING]

[WAILING]

Aah!

Aah!

- [WAILING]
- [EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

Aah!

[WAILING]

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CRYING]

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

[PACO] I am ready to accept
your revenge, Cherry.

I will pay for everything
I did to you.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

[WAILING]

Pa…

[SOBBING]

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CRIES]

[SOBS]

Aah!

[CRIES]

Aah!

Cherry!

Cherry?

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Cherry?

Cherry!

Cherry! [PANTS]

Cherry Red!

[CRIES]

The letter is real, Aunt.

The one that I've read.

Why Mom died.

It's real.

Paco left it.

[SNIFFLES]

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

It's true, Cherry.

Everything you've said is true.

Now I believe in you.

They made me look stupid.

They made me look crazy.

[CHERRY] Was that it?

There's no letter?

There's no letter.

[CHERRY] Show me the letter.
Give it to me.

[DAVE] Cherry! Cherry.

- Calm down.
- [CHERRY] Get off of me!

There you go again!

[DREW] We're just concerned.

[SEB] Cherry, calm down, please.

They ganged up on me.

I loved them.

[CHERRY] He sent
a lot of angels on Earth.

Like Ma'am Carol…

The whole Estrella family.

Dave's brothers.

Paco, Seb and Drew.

How about Freddie?

Don Freddie is really nice.

He accepted me in the mansion.

Then sometimes they let me
manage the ranch.

I know Freddie.

I know the Estrellas.

I didn't know that.

[SOFT CHUCKLES]

Well, I haven't talked
to Sir Freddie.

But, you know what, Dad?

The whole family…

the Estrellas…

became my family as well.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

I treated them like family.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

How did they do this to me?

Paco…

he's my husband.

He should've stood by me
through everything.

I loved him so much.

I fought for my love to him.

But he's the biggest liar
of them all.

Dear…

forgive me.

I didn't believe you at first.

I didn't expect
they can do this to you.

[SOBS] What I know is
they love you.

[SNIFFLES]

But I can't get this
out of my mind…

maybe they didn't knew.

Dave and his brothers.

What if it's only Paco…

who lied to you?

I don't know, Aunt.

What I know is…

I can't trust any of them.

[SOBS]

You know what?

Let's go to the U.S.

Let's have our honeymoon there
as soon as possible.

Huh?

I just thought of
having a vacation.

While your bump is still small.

It would be safer for our baby
to travel.

Okay. Let's plan for it.

Look, Becca, I know that…
[SIGHS]

…this pregnancy

is supposed to be
our journey together.

And I'm… I'm sorry that
I haven't been more active,

I haven't been participating
as much with your pregnancy.

But I promise,

I will make it up to you, okay?

I will be more active.

Tomorrow,
let's go to your doctor.

I want to hear
our baby's heartbeat.

I want the baby to know me.

Oh, no need, Dave.

We're both fine.

Don't bother.

Becca, I insist.

I want this.

I'm excited for this.

[SOFT CHUCKLES]

- What will be…
- [NERVOUS CHUCKLES]

…the baby's name?

Oh, come on, you're too excited.

We don't even know
the gender yet.

- You're right.
- [CHUCKLES]

Let me see. I want to hear
the heartbeat.

- Ah… Ah, Dave…
- Oh.

- Wait, sorry.
- Why?

- What's wrong?
- Feels like…

- Why?
- I think I'm hungry.

We're both hungry.

- Yeah. Let's eat first.
- Mm-mm.

- Yeah.
- Okay.

- Sorry.
- Let's eat.

- Sorry. Yeah. Yeah.
- Let's go.

[GRUNTS]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

The whole ranch
will be given to…

Cherry Red Estrella.

Dave! Dave, let's talk!

- Dave!
- What?

Dave, why did you do this?
Give me a good reason.

Because I know you'll take care
of the ranch.

- Is that good?
- No! No, Dave.

That's not a reason.

Don't oppose to it.

Just accept it.

I can't accept a thing
that is not for me.

Well, I'm telling you,

all the documents
are under your name.

Get used to it.

[BREATHES HEAVILY]

I don't want this!

It's yours, Cherry.

[SOBS]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Eat up, dear.

It's impossible
that Dave didn't know.

What made you say that?

The ranch.

That's why he gave it to me.

To pay for their debts.

Because he knows the truth.

Are you sure about that
or is it just a feeling?

I have a strong feeling.

But I will know the truth.

What will you do
if they knew everything?

I will collect debts.

And they will regret it.

All of them

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Welcome back, Ma'am Cherry.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Cherry?

How did you get here?

We talked to the fishermen,

asked them to accompany us
to town.

Then we went to the bus station.

It was far.

I don't even know where to ride.

But you know me, Paco.

When I want something,
I'll do everything.

Are you just going to
stand there?

You won't even greet me?

Don't you miss me?

[suspenseful music playing]

Where's Aunt Ebs?

I asked her to go home.

But I told her to come here.

That's why she will come over.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

Come, let's eat.
I prepared something.

Where's Drew?

He's getting high again
for sure.

[KNIFE SLASHING]

[CHERRY] You became like that

because you're raised
by a useless father.

Cherry, this is enough.

If no one will defy you, I will.

Please, that's enough.

I'll decide
when it's enough, Seb!

Me! Me! Only me!

What's happening to Cherry?

Why is she like that?

I let her read the letter.

What's wrong with you?

I can't lie to my wife anymore!

I can't!

- She knew about Drew?
- No.

Attorney, the whole ranch
is under my name, right?

Dave named it all to you.

We've talked about

transferring it
to the four of them.

But because a lot is against it,

just burn it down.

[WOMAN] Ma'am, here's the
financial statement of the ranch

and your husband's
bank transactions.

[CHERRY] Thank you.

- [ERLINDA] What do you need?
- [CHERRY] Truth.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]
