After thorough consideration, Billy (Liza Soberano) finally accepts Ted (Ian Veneracion)’s offer to head the Product Development of Tinapay Corner. Her presence at the office, after having been officially introduced by Ted as part of the team, brings surprise and worry to Gabo (Enrique Gil). In an attempt to save Billy from the devious corporate world of the Villarica Corporation, Gabo tries his best to change Billy’s mind by almost mocking her abilities. He says he has other applicants shortlisted for the position and he wants someone with managerial skills. With a wounded ego, Billy faces Gabo and asserts that she could handle the post.
Later, Gabo tells Billy that she is clueless of what lies ahead in a world different from hers. He urges her to pursue her scholarship in Paris instead. But caught up by the situation, Billy has decided to build a career somewhere near her family. Lolo Aga (Eddie Gutierrez)’s recent hospitalization prompted her to realize that she needs and wants to be by her family’s side. Billy quotes a line from Gabo’s diary and insists that she is determined to stand by the path she chooses.
Billy goes through a panel interview with the Villarica Corporation Board of Directors, a set-up that Gabo orchestrated with the intent of pushing Billy to failure. Gabo’s staff worries for Billy, knowing how intimidating the Board Members are. Even Ted admits that the test would be difficult to surpass and the Board is almost impossible to impress. With these remarks, Gabo is certain that Billy would be pushed to back out.
