The previous episodes revealed that Tatiana (Ariella Arida) was raped by Justino at the age of seventeen. She kept mum about the incident in fear that Justino would disclose an explosive information that would taint Juan Felipe (James Blanco)’s reputation.
During the Ladies’ Society Ball, Tatiana gave Justino the go signal to rape Emma (Janella Salvador) and planned to record the supposed sexual assault as means of blackmailing Justino in return. Fortunately, Emma (Janella Salvador) was able to knock Justino down and escape.
Then, a series of mysterious events shock the town of Las Espadas. Justino was found dead in the middle of the hall. Emma went missing at the same time, making her the suspect in everyone’s eye except to Elias (Joshua Garcia) who believed that she was brought in the forest of San Lucas de Oro akin to Manoy Andres’ (Soliman Cruz) abduction.
Elias proved his instinct right when he found Emma in the woods after an entire day of searching. Prior to that event, Emma woke up inside a cave, found her hands tied, and saw the killer bride approaching her. Emma was rushed to the hospital and the medical findings indicate that she was indeed drugged with the same substance given to Manoy Andres.
After her recovery, Emma arrives with Manay Ichu (Malou de Guzman) and Tsoknat (Pamu Pamorada) in a mass celebration intended for Justino, stirring irk and rumors from the other attendees. Murmurs grow louder when the townsmen receive a video recording of the rape incident. The material was edited to make the act appear inoffensive, as though Emma willingly gave in.
A squabble happens outside the church as Luna (Alexa Ilacad) humiliates Emma in front of everyone but Elias (Joshua Garcia) comes just in time to stand by Emma’s defense.
Later on, at the dela Torre mansion, Emma knocks on Tatiana’s room to request for a serious talk about the viral video. But, Tatiana locks herself up and appears traumatized from seeing the ‘killer bride’ a few days ago. Still, Emma keeps on urging Tatiana to tell her family the whole truth.
The dela Torres goes upstairs and hears Emma’s pleas. Just as when Emma is starting her narrative, Tatiana comes out of her room and grabs Emma’s hair in an attempt to stop her from speaking up.
Caught up by the situation, Tatiana has no other option but to break her silence about her connection with Justino, the blackmail involving Juan Felipe, and her attempt to use Emma as a lure. Tatiana cries out all her pain she kept on hiding as well as her resentment towards her family for making her feel alone and unappreciated.
Alice (Lara Quigaman) confronts Juan Felipe. A brawl ignites when Luciano comes to the rescue of Alice and Luis (Sam Concepcion) who both received a taste of Juan Felipe’s wrath.
