Previously, Ted (Ian Veneracion) feigned warmth and kindness as he visited at the Dimagiba abode. He pretended just dropping by to request for Lola Iling (Vangie Labalan)’s paksiw na bangus recipe. He then shared a serious conversation with Tony (Herbert Bautista). Ted brought up the topic about the Pusong Dimagiba’s struggling production due to the growing infestation at the mango farm. Ted volunteered to fund the Pusong Dimagiba but Tony declined the offer. Tony said that he is trying to apply for a money loan at the Banco de Valencia. Ted no longer insisted on his wish but later, while on the way out of the village, he phoned someone connected to Banco de Valencia. He also threw the ‘paksiw na bangus’ packed by Lola Iling, unmasking himself off the kindness he displayed in front of the locals.
Despite the challenges, Tony remains secretive to Billy (Liza Soberano), not wanting to pass on his obligations to her. He says everything is doing well. Tony heads to the Banco de Valencia to check the status of his loan application which, to his dismay, has been rejected. He is advised to try his luck in other bank establishments.
Running out of options, Tony meets with Ted to ask for a favor.
