Despite his efforts, Gabo (Enrique Gil) still fails to gain the trust and support of his own father (Ian Veneracion) and the rest of the company’s Board Members. The sales of Tinapay Corner continues to decline and a controversy involving ‘pudding girl’ aggravates his business’ poor performance. So, to handle the dilemma, Gabo goes to Nueva Valencia to check on Tinapay Corner’s competitor.
Gabo smears his handsome face with dirt, wears rugged clothes, and puts on a wig to disguise as a beggar. He then purchases two bags of Panaderia de Tony’s bestselling pan de tsalap. Gabo lets the taste of the bread pudding linger in his mouth. And as he savours the piece of bread, Gabo confirms the hearsays – Panaderia de Tony’s pan de tsalap and Tinapay Corner’s breadnassaince are made of the same ingredients.
Gabo looks for his driver and picks up pieces of plastic bottles scattered around. He has grown accustomed to the habit that gave him a living in Croatia.
Billy (Liza Soberano), riding on a bus going home, catches a glimpse of Gabo. Even with the dirt coating his face, Billy instantly knew that it was him. She panics and demands the bus to make a stop pronto. But Gabo is no longer in the area where she spotted him.
Just as when she’s already lost all hope, Billy catches Gabo at a corner. They meet each other’s eyes. Billy’s face hardens in anger. She looks at him with questioning stares. Without saying a word, Gabo turns his back at Billy. Fate gives Billy the chance to clear up her mind but all she manages to say is “Why?” while tears roll down her eyes.
Gabo’s response is simple, saying he is no longer the guy who Billy met in Croatia. But the straightforward one-liner explanation only stirs Billy’s confusion even more.
