The female members of both Dela Cuesta and Dela Torre clan are busy preparing for the upcoming Ladies’ Society Ball. With a secret nasty plan in mind, Tatiana (Ariella Arida) requests for Emma’s (Janella Salvador) attendance in the said event.
Tatiana invites Emma and Alice (Lara Quigaman) in a coffee shop and they talk about a few details about the ball. Luciano (Cris Villanueva) and Luis (Sam Concepcion) soon arrive.
Luciano scolds Emma for riding on his horse despite its ferocious mood that time. He gets mad when Emma explains that the horse’s aggressiveness was simply due to its tight reins.
Luis watches a viral video of his father, Mayor Juan Felipe dela Torre (James Blanco) showing his ruthless character while reprimanding several offenders of the smoking-ban. Luis feels frustrated and embarrassed for his father’s dictatorial leadership style. Alice remains silent but her actions show that she’s not pleased with Juan Felipe’s sternness as well.
Back at the Dela Torre mansion, a designer takes Emma’s body measurements and suggests and A-line gown for her. Tatiana disagrees, saying Emmas curves would be flaunted well in a mermaid-cut dress. Unable to control her thoughts, Emma carelessly remarks that A-line dresses look old school. Tatiana, Alice, and Lola Guada (Aurora Sevilla) raise their brows at Emma’s surprising knowledge on fashion and dresses. Emma alibis that she used to be a big fan of a fashion-themed teleserye, Magkaribal.
Manang Agot (Tanya Gomez) comes in and glares at Emma while bringing a tray of snack at the sala.
