As Lou and Andre went inside, the other housemates, sans Hanie, still discussed the appalling scenes they just witnessed and shared their sentiments about what the two did. Unanimously, it was not okay with them, agreeing that even if they’re already adults, they are not officially together yet, hence their actions were wrong and they’d gone out of control.

After the party, the sober housemates tucked Lou and Andre to bed and altogether cleaned the venue. But their kissing scenes still lingered on their minds, especially Fumiya Sankai who appeared befuddled with culture shock in his conversations with eldest housemates Mary Grace Lagos and Mark Obera, since people in his native Japan don’t show such intimacy in public.

Upon waking up the next day, the housemates talked about what happened the night before, with the “Konichi-Wonder Vlogger of Japan” approaching the “Amazing Alo-Hunk of Hawaii” to propose a talk with him.
On the other hand, Lou jestingly imparted to Yamyam Gucong and Mary Grace that her father will surely reprimand her once they meet again in the outside world and uttered her apologies for how she and Andre behaved.
She also had a serious chat with Kuya, in which she related to him how her family would probably react and said sorry. Besides, she willingly recalled the past romantic affairs she had prior to joining PBB and noted what makes Andre different from the other men she dated.
