Billy (Liza Soberano)’s decision to set Gabo (Enrique Gil) up on a date in exchange of money almost ruins their blossoming relationship. The good thing is they both let empathy and understanding heal their hearts from disappointment, guilt and betrayal.
Sharing a conversation by the beach under the night skies, Billy says sorry to Gabo and explains that she was supposed to back out from the deal but Antonia suddenly arrived without a warning. She was already decided to stop using Gabo in her schemes because he doesn’t deserve it.
When asked why she disguises when going on dates, Billy says the real her wouldn’t trick other people, so she hides behind different personas to somehow ease the guilt. Now that she is admittedly in dire need of finances to support her family and friends, Billy seems left without a choice but to continue going on dates for money. She expresses frustration and wishes that she was born rich and with a lot of options.
Gabo remains silent while listening to Billy’s sentiments and then volunteers to continue the date with Antonia. It is his own decision, according to him. And besides, he thinks going out with Antonia wouldn’t do any harm.
The date finally happens. Gabo plays it cool. He jokingly asks Billy if she feels threatened and scared that he might fall for Antonia. Billy smirks and accompanies a dashing Gabo to the venue – a romantic set-up on Antonia’s family home. Before parting ways, Billy tells Gabo that she would wait for him. In return, he promises that he’ll be back.
Antonia signals the singers to stop serenading them for a while and then introduces Gabo to her father. The date smells trouble as soon as Gabo and the rich family man face each other.
Antonia’s Dad, an ambassador, seems to know something about Gabo’s true background. And he hints at knowing Gabo’s father as well. Gabo tries to escape from the tricky situation and says the man might have just mistaken him for someone else. But Antonia’s dad insists on his claims. Gabo contacts his father, Ted (Ian Veneracion), who demands him to come home to the Philippines.
