Juan Felipe (James Blanco) calls for a press conference and presents the murderer behind Justino’s death. Unknown to everyone, the man was harassed to own up the crime. He is just supposed to appear as Juan Felipe’s scapegoat.
However, Juan Felipe’s darkest secret still comes out despite his efforts to protect his reputation. Juan Felipe’s video scandal with his trusted aide, Ivan spreads like wildfire.
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 Juan Felipe’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 (Ariella Arida) instead. However, Tatiana refuses to speak up and simply walks out.
Luis (Sam Concepcion) enters the scene and blocks Juan Felipe’s hands just in time before it hits Alice again. Luis dauntlessly fights back by landing his fists on Juan Felipe’s face.
Juan Felipe’s anger makes him tear up as he mocks his own son. Juan Felipe asserts that even his soft side will never make him any less powerful. He calls Luis the weaker man instead. He walks out of the mansion; leaving Alice and Luis comforting one another.
Meanwhile, sympathy is seen in Emma (Janella Salvador)’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 every time the latter would raise his hands to beat Alice. 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. However, she rejects Luis’ expression of gratitude. Emma cries and says she does not deserve to be thanked. She walks out, leaving Luis puzzled by her reaction.
The scene cuts to Elias (Joshua Garcia) and Intoy (Neil Coleta) talking about the video scandal. Elias worries over Alice and Luis’ feelings.
