Thrilled to see her friends from Croatia, Billy (Liza Soberano) arrives at the meeting place set by Yuta (Fumiya Sankai) and Helen (Katya Santos). But to her surprise, Gabo (Enrique Gil) appears and admits that he orchestrated the supposed reunion to steal a heart-to-heart talk with her.
Gabo tries to create a casual atmosphere over a coffee date but Billy demands him to go straight to the point. To finally unleash his bottled emotions, Gabo confesses that he loved Billy all throughout their short-lived romance. But this won’t change his wish to send her out of his life. Appalled with the last statement, Billy reminds Gabo that it was him who convinced her to work for the Villarica Corporation. At this point, Gabo gets completely honest about the threats lurking around Billy and the Dimagiba family because of Ted (Ian Veneracion).
Gabo narrates that Antonia deceived them into believing that she only wanted a date with him. But the truth is Antonia and her Ambassador father sent him home in exchange of his friends’ safety. Knowing the vicious tendencies of these people and especially Ted, Gabo says he opted to just depart unannounced to protect Billy. And in order to ensure her safety, Gabo asks Billy to pursue her scholarship in Paris.
Billy insists that she would stay for her family’s welfare and that she isn’t the type who would easily give up. Besides, she thinks that Ted wouldn’t harm her as he doesn’t have another valid reason to do so. Billy’s composure and strength leave Gabo in awe.
