At Montecorp, Ace approached Jacky to provoke her but Jacky did not satisfy his whims. Jacky voiced out what she heard concerning his deeds against the Bartolomes. Ace being so full of himself, interjected that he knew the Mama’s boy has already told her.
Knowing how the pot is referring to someone else as dark, Jacky smiled while rebuking him: “unlike him Lino solves his own problem.”
She warned Ace not to be so sure of himself since she knew one-day Jade would wake up and run back to Lino with the baby or better still he would not go home to meet her.
She walked out on him, while Ace looked depressed knowing Jacky was right. At the hospital, Dolor pleaded with Lino to have patience and not allow Ace to get him provoked.
She believed he would be reunited with his son but cautioned him to be guided before falling prey to Ace’s evil schemes.
Lino and Jacky met up with Ken in a company of a different attorney, who gave Lino guidelines on means to secure the custody of his child.
He advised Lino to stay away from Jade and Ace. He also cautioned him to exercise patience and not allow himself to get provoked by Ace as Ace might enrich his suit with Lino’s act of defense.
For the claims of Ace being the father of CJ, Lino was reminded that he signed the baby’s birth certificate which meant he assumed the responsibility of the child, in turn legally makes him the father.
After the meeting Lino received a message from Jade to meet his son, although Jacky warned him to be mindful of Ace, he was unreliable Lino assured to take care of himself. Ace requested to go to the grocery store with Jade together with CJ.
In the Bartolome residence, Lino assured the family of the law being by his side. Tat showed the family one of Jade’s video which she recorded during the days she was doing the online work. It was one of her attitude videos and Fe commended her for keeping the video.
They told Lino it could help him in his legal tussle with Jade. Paeng found out that after the death of Aliyah’s father she had been depressed and was abusing substances.
Helen was shocked since Aliyah was in her good book of perfect woman who knew how to solve problems.
Later, Gio overhead Ace talking to Jade on phone, asking her whether she was done with her massage. Gio knew Ace was up to something bad and planned to fish it out.
Jade during the massage learnt about the tragic fate Aliyah suffered. The beauty therapist who referred to Jade as the replacement of Aliyah in Ace’s life due to her soft skin, said Aliyah died recently from suicide.
To her, Aliyah did not look depressed for her to commit suicide. Jade who introduced herself as Ace’s cousin was puzzled.
Lino realised that Ace was sabotaging his work but he did not allow it to get to him. Baste however, discovered something unusual about Montecorp during the discharge of her duties.
Gio informed Maggie about the whereabouts of Jade and CJ. He believed they were hiding in Ace’s condo and Maggie planned to meet him.
She went to the venue with Bogs, although the later doubted Gio’s gesture. Baste called to arrange with Jacky to check the sensitive files.
Meanwhile, Lino at Dos Disenyos thought of the text which Jade sent and finally made a decision.
Gio arrived and was unhappy to see the presence of Bogs. He told Maggie about his decision to help re-unite the baby with Lino. Bogs confronted Gio since he was also a Corpuz and could betray the Bartolomes.
Gio said his help was the least he could do for the Bartolomes to make up for the wrong he did. He proved that he was not like his brother even though he bore the Corpuz’s name.
Jade gave Ace a list of things she would need, including a house to fight for the custody of CJ in Court.
Jacky arrived at Dos Disenyos but could not check the files when she learnt that Lino left the office all of a sudden. She was scared that Lino could do something which he might regret so she decided to go after him, sensing that Lino went to meet Jade to check on his son.
Baste pleaded with her to come soon. Ace barged into the condo to deliver items he bought for CJ. He did not knock so Jade got upset, demanding him to respect her privacy by knocking since she could be naked.
Ace used the opportunity to steal Jade’s phone. Jade pleaded with Ace to stop buying her things but Ace said he wanted her and the baby to feel comfortable. Jade then promised to pay him for all the money he was spending on her and the baby.
While packing her things, Jade saw a gun hidden in a wardrobe. She got scared that Ace might be up to something evil. Lino got to the meeting place to find a bag, thinking CJ was trapped in. He vomited while taking out the dirty things loaded in the bag.
Lino got provoked by Ace’s action and was about to attack Ace when he revealed his face. Jacky got in between but Lino could not be tamed so she slapped him for him to get into his senses.
After Jacky trying her best to put Lino under control, Ace showed him a video about CJ, Jade and him which made Lino lost patience and threatened to kill him if he dared hurt his son in that mansion full of lunatics. He was prepared to spend his life in prison to save his son.
Ace smiled and left being happy. However, Jacky told Lino that Ace was doing all that to provoke him just to turn the situation against him.
That, she said would make him lose his case of being reunited with his son. Lino admitted going crazy realizing CJ was in the hands of bunch of lunatics. Jacky embraced him to give him comfort while both shared tears.
