The devious Ted (Ian Veneracion) makes a surprise visit at the Tinapay Corner office after knowing the root of Gabo (Enrique Gil) and Billy (Liza Soberano)’s friendship. He is still determined to wreak havoc on Gabo’s plans for the company, not wanting his son to acquire independence from the Villarica Corporation. He faces Gabo and kicks off the act by displaying fake remorse for his harsh treatment towards Gabo amid the accreditation process. Then, he offers Gabo a tempting offer, asking the young man to pay for all the loans in the Villarica Corporation in exchange of solo ownership of the Tinapay Corner and his complete independence. Billy, who is listening to the conversation, smiles at Gabo. The latter shakes hands with his father to seal the deal.
But the succeeding scene would reveal that Gabo is suspicious of Ted’s motive. At a restaurant, Gabo calls his staff to investigate on the background of two possible investors to ensure that they are not just Ted’s secret accomplices. As Gabo drops the call, Billy enters the scene. The latter says that Ted seems giving them a lovely option yet Gabo couldn’t help but act skeptical. Helen (Katya Santos) and Yuta (Fumiya Sankai) join the meal after a quick visit to the clinic due to a wrong assessment on Yuta’s body temperature. Teases fly around the place, with Yuta calling Gabo and Billy his foster parents. Billy and Gabo invite the other two to join in their company outing. The scene turns a bit sentimental as Gabo foresees the sadness he might feel when his friends leave again.
It turns out that there’s so much truth to Gabo’s gut feel. Ted meets with one of his executives and orders him to re-structure the Tinapay Corner’s loans. The plan is to receive Gabo’s payment and then orchestrate a separate company that would act as bait, so Gabo’s Tinapay Corner would be trapped under Ted’s manipulative hands.
Meanwhile, the Tinapay Corner employees enjoy the scenic view at the hiking venue. Anna (Shaira Opsimar) relays that she saw Gabo and Billy sharing a sweet time in a restaurant, unaware that it wasn’t a couple date but rather a group gathering of Team Croatia. The staff members shriek and assume that their two bosses are in a romantic relationship. They try to hold their smiles as Gabo and Billy, who they now call as a love team, arrive together.
