Through the tip he got from an anonymous caller, Juan Felipe (James Blanco) is convinced that Emma (Janella Salvador) is involved in Ivan (Angelo Patrimonio)’s death. He holds Manay Ichu (Malou de Guzman)’s group, alongside Elias (Joshua Garcia), in hostage and uses them as bait.
Juan Felipe takes Manay Ichu’s phone to contact Emma, knowing that the latter won’t be able to resist those dear to her. Emma picks up the call and hears Juan Felipe’s threatening words on the other line, as well as Elias’ voice begging her not to come. But, later, Emma arrives and dauntlessly faces Juan Felipe.
Emma manages to inject Juan Felipe a syringe containing a substance that can cause hallucinating effects similar to a Belladonna plant. Fabio (Miko Raval) enters the scene and handles Juan Felipe.
Later, Juan Felipe regains consciousness and finds his hands tied up with ropes. He sees Camila, dressed in a wedding gown, approaching him. Still drugged, Juan Felipe perceives Camila as just an apparition.
Camila scares Juan Felipe, saying she has come back from the dead to make her uncle pay for his wickedness.
She interrogates Juan Felipe about his involvement in Javier (Dominic Ochoa)’s death and the arson at the jail that took her daughter’s life. Camila resorts to beating up Juan Felipe every time he would claim his innocence about the accusations against him. Yet, he seems really clueless about the mysteries that Camila has long been wanting to solve. Camila frightens Juan Felipe of not being able to see Ivan again if he won’t speak up.
The mention of Ivan’s name awakens Juan Felipe’s soft side. The ruthless Mayor appears weak and vulnerable as he cries out his feelings of longing and pain. Juan Felipe keeps on repeating how much he loves Ivan.
Scared to completely lose Ivan, Juan Felipe unknowingly reveals killing Marvin Cruz (Kokoy de Santos) and the waiter who owned up to Justino’s murder.
Apparently, Fabio has recorded the confession.
Next morning, Juan Felipe wakes up in the middle of the forest and contacts his security. Juan Felipe calls Tati (Ariella Arida) who warns him not to come home because of the cops’ presence at the mansion. Juan Felipe decides to leave Las Espadas.
At the Dela Torre mansion, no one dares to speak up regarding Juan Felipe’s whereabouts, not even Tati.
Luciano (Cris Villanueva) walks out and acts infuriated. A flashback sequence reveals that Luciano is the brains behind the put-up job involving Emma and Juan Felipe at the abandoned building.
