The dela Torre clan is going through a hard time which brings Emma (Janella Salvador) in an emotional turmoil as well. The family has already found out that Tatiana (Ariella Arida) was raped by Justino at the age of seventeen but kept the incident a secret for the sake of protecting Juan Felipe (James Blanco)’s reputation. The revelation results to a fall out among the dela Torre’s.
The trail of conflict does not stop there. In the middle of a press conference, the media people and the residents of Las Espadas receive copies of a video recording bearing Juan Felipe’s darkest secret. The material shows evidence of Juan Felipe’s affair with his aide, Ivan. Juan Felipe walks out of the event to get away with the controversy.
At the dela Torre mansion, Alice (Lara Quigaman) confronts Juan Felipe. She cries out all her pain. Alice looked down on herself all through the years and willingly fell victim to Juan Felipe’s violence; assuming that she deserved the beating for being inadequate to her husband’s needs. But, now that the truth is out, Alice puts the blame on Juan Felipe.
Juan Felipe denies the scandal and insists that the video material is faked. Alice does not want to buy her husband’s alibi and turns to Tatiana instead. However, Tatiana refuses to speak up and simply walks out.
Luis enters the scene and blocks Juan Felipe’s hands just in time before it hits Alice again. Luis dauntlessly lands his fist on Juan Felipe’s face.
Juan Felipe’s anger makes him tear up as he mocks his own son. He asserts that even his soft side will never make him any less powerful. He calls Luis the weaker man instead. Juan Felipe walks out of the mansion; leaving Alice and Luis comforting one another.
Meanwhile, sympathy is seen in Emma’s face as she watches the intense confrontation at a corner.
Emma tears up as she comforts Guada (Aurora Sevilla) who blames herself for her family’s mishap. Emma’s concern grows deeper when Guada almost fainted. Ornusa (Viveika Ravanes) assists Guada and secretly looks at Emma with malice.
The scene cuts to Emma approaching Luis at the garden area. Luis sheds tears as he narrates how he’s always wanted to grow up into a man strong enough to defend Alice from Juan Felipe. He has always dreamt of having the courage to oppose Juan Felipe. Growing up, Luis would often hear Alice’s assurance that Juan Felipe loves them yet, he knew his mother was simply lying. The recent events seem like a confirmation to Luis’ belief that he and Alice are not the family Juan Felipe wanted.
Emma quietly listens to Luis’ painful story and shows him comfort afterwards.
