To put her family’s struggles to an end, Billy (Liza Soberano) swallows her pride and accepts Gabo (Enrique Gil)’s offer to become Tinapay Corner’s mango jam supplier. And as though hitting two birds with one stone, Billy’s decision is also a promising way to revive the entire Nueva Valencia’s livelihood.
On the day of the ‘Pusong Dimagiba’s official launch in Nueva Valencia, Billy wears a casual white dress and stuns everyone with her ethereal look. She gets her own surprise as well when Gabo arrives with his corporate team.
For marketing purposes, Gabo mingles with the Dimagibas and the mango farm workers amid flashing cameras. Billy and Gabo shake hands for a photo opportunity while the rest of the villagers are seen smiling behind them.
The celebration continues. A marching band ups the event’s festive ambience. Billy and Gabo’s fingers accidentally brush during the boodle fight, as though reminding them both of the subtle romantic moment they shared while baking their first bread pudding in Croatia. But this time, they opt not to let the touch linger.
Later that night, a dance party starts. Gabo’s secretary, Anna (Shaira Opsimar) finds it as a good way to build his image. Gabriel Villarica blending with the villagers in their humble tradition sounds like a perfect press release. But the fun music suddenly cuts to a romantic song. Billy and Gabo stand in the middle of the crowd, both hesitant and clueless of how to react. Anna comes to the rescue and, without malice, leads Gabo and Billy closer to each other and asks them to pair up. Gabo and Billy swallow their reluctance and do as told, slow dancing under the night skies.
