The scene opens with Helen (Katya Santos) waiting impatiently for Yuta (Fumiya Sankai) in a hotel. She assumes that his flight got delayed. A man covered in a complete medical protective suit comes in, frightening Helen. The mystery guy takes off his face mask and reveals himself as Yuta. The two friends shriek in excitement and head to a bar. They talk about the amusing differences between the Filipino and Japanese regulations on crossing the streets, with Yuta showing off his trademark shenanigans. Helen has one important reminder for Yuta – to never bring up Gabo (Enrique Gil) and Billy (Liza Soberano)’s romantic involvement even just for fun, saying that the ex-lovers are now determined to move on from the past.
Meanwhile, the other half of Team Croatia, Billy and Gabo, are doing their individual preparations for the Tinapay Corner’s final meeting with the accreditation team. However, before the last stretch of the process begins, the head of the accreditation team get into a scuffle with Ted (Ian Veneracion). The latter is the one to initiate the heated encounter. Their frigid treatment towards each other hints at a bad past. The tension seems coming to an end until Ted brings up something that triggers his rival’s fury, igniting a brawl. Gabo receives a call from his staff updating him about the incident.
