Grandma Flora gives the kids a talking to when they return home after caroling outside despite the situation of their family. Reminding Makmak that he’s the oldest of the bunch, Yolly charges him to guide the others and be more responsible. She then urges them all to not leave the house again without asking for permission. The kids apologize and reveal how Captain Gina had tried to make them tell her where Cardo is. Alyana then urges Grandma Flora to not let the captain get away with it.
While Senator De Silva has his men disperse the inhabitants of the neighborhood at Sitio Kasanga so they could go ahead with their malicious intent, Granma Flora decides to refrain from confronting the captain, lest she be more convinced that they’re indeed hiding some secrets. However, she vows to put the irritating woman in her place if she ever messes with the children again.
General Oligario has a talk with the despicable director Hipolito regarding the murder of Elias ‘the Owl’. Diana speculates that Romulo might have killed the scumbag because he had betrayed them and told the police their location. As expected, Hipolito begins bitching and throwing his unending and unfounded accusations at our favorite hero. Diana is exasperated.
“What’s the second scenario?” Hipolito prompts.
“Someone else from Bloody Sun could have killed him,” Diana states. “He probably knew too much.”
“What could he have possibly known?”
“Where the other Bloody Sun members are hiding in Manila. The members who have been planting bombs all over.”
Director Hipolito shrugs off the General’s words and offers a lame-ass appreciation. Diana stares back silently, wondering whether he’s deliberately diverting the investigation. Back at Sitio Kasanga, a number of scumbags charge into the Moreno house and Cardo and the Bloody Sun gun them down. De Silva’s men strike back, unloading a barrage of bullets into the house.
After taking cover for a moment, Romulo heads for the back with Bruno and a few of the rebels while Cardo stays in the front with Regine and the others. Romulo’s group proceed and storm their way out through the back, taking down all scumbags that come at them. Somewhere in town, Homer’s gang is having a joyride when Billy and his men spot them and go in pursuit.
Homer’s lackeys notice that they’re being followed and they begin discussing whether it’s the police or Romulo and Cardo’s group. Speaking of, Cardo’s group engage De Silva and his men in an intense gunfight. They take down a number of the goons, though Barracuda ends up getting hit. Fortunately, it’s nothing but a flesh wound.
Cardo holds off the scumbags long enough for Regine to get to safety. Anton backs up Barracuda as the gunfight drags on. As Don Emilio resorts to his antics of mockery at his safe house, looking forward to the successful capture of our favorite hero, Homer indulges his pursuers for a while before accelerating. They come upon an intersection where they narrowly escape capture.
Romulo takes down several goons with his exceptional shooting and evading skills. The gunfight continues and simultaneously, Cardo’s group fends off their attackers as Romulo’s does same. At camp Crame, General Oligario informs Borja about her talk with Hipolito regarding the murder of Elias. Delfin asks if she had brought up their suspicion of Homer Adlawan and Diana replies in the affirmative.
“I wanted to see how he would react.”
“How did he?” Delfin asks.
“It was difficult to read the director,” Diana replies. “And that makes him difficult to trust too.”
General Borja looks on and silently, he begins wondering whether it’s the right time to tell Oligario what he knows about director Hipolito. Meanwhile, Homer’s gang return to their safe house, quiet regretful that they hadn’t listened to the Vulture and had left the hideout. Homer takes offense at that, asking if they’re blaming him. Meanwhile, a random goon takes Regine hostage and Cardo saves her by effortlessly gunning down the scumbag.
Senator De Silva and his henchmen are relentless in their pursuit of their targets, despite the fact that they seem to be on the losing end of the battle. After taking down another batch of the amateurish henchmen, Cardo and his allies fight their way onto the street and make their escape. Out of nowhere comes Victor, the immature brother of the senator. Gun at the ready, the idiot calls out our favorite hero’s name.
Cardo whirls around and shoots Victor down before he even knows what hit him. He then escapes with his allies as Senator De Silva and what’s left of his men arrive on the scene. De Silva then puts his shady mission on hold to attend to his wounded, childish brother. At the NMIG, General Oligario is informed of the recent incident at Sitio Kasanga. In no time, Billy and his men interrogate some neighbors at the crime scene.
While Cardo and the Bloody Sun attend to their wounded comrades at their hideout, Don Emilio calls Senator De Silva on phone, eager for some good news. However, the miserable old man is met with what had befallen childish Victor. Mentioning that his brother is in critical condition in the operating room, De Silva bitches over the incompetent men his right-hand man had sent. As if on cue, Don Emilio begins bitching over how Cardo had ‘wiped out’ his entire family.
“Dalisay will surely pay for what he did to my brother,” De Silva hisses. “Do you frigging here me?”
“We have to get him,” Don Emilio urges. “By hook or by crook.”
Catindig informs director Hipolito about the recent incident at Sitio Kasanga and the director charges him to investigate and figure out why the Moreno family is being hunted down. Catindig then reveals how the Morenos had escaped from Senator De Silva with Cardo and the Bloody Sun. At Sitio Kasanga, Billy briefs General Borja on the recent incident as well as the stunt Senator De Silva had pulled.
Delfin hasn’t yet recovered from the shock of the criminal actions of the senator when Catindig shows up and rears his ugly head to cause more trouble. The traitorous snake actually has the guts to ask the General why he’s at the crime scene. Delfin shoots back at him, saying that it’s his duty as director of the CIDG to find the culprit behind the attack.
“Why don’t you ask Dalisay himself?” Catindig taunts.
General Borja finds humor in the situation. “We still have a lot of work to do here. So I suggest you mind your own job and department. And stay out of our way!”
The doctor informs Senator De Silva that they need to keep his childish brother under observation in the ICU on account of the internal bleeding he had suffered. De Silva then urges him to save his brother, saying that he’s ready to pay any price. Later, he has a talk with Alvaro his right-hand man, dead set on making Cardo pay.
Catindig calls Hipolito to update him on the recent incident at Sitio Kasanga. Hipolito urges his greatest pawn to figure out the leader of the attackers, fearing that they might get dragged down with them if they happen to have any connection to the ex-military men.
“Do your job thoroughly,” Hipolito charges. “While I think of a way to finally get rid of that blasted pest De Silva.”
Following Bruno’s talk with his mother over the phone, Cardo apologizes for having dragged his family into their mess. He then urges Bruno to have faith that eventually, things will go back to normal and all their problems will finally be over. At the NMIG, Catindig briefs General Oligario on the stunt Senator De Silva had pulled that had ended up with his brother at the hospital. At camp Crame, General Borja condemns Senator De Silva’s actions.
“We’ve been trying to contact his office, but no one is answering,” Vargas mentions.
“Then call them again,” Delfin states. “If Senator De Silva refuses to meet or talk to me, I can have him arrested. Because he has no right to launch an armed attack like that.”
Senator De Silva calls Don Emilio and laments over the situation of his brother. The miserable old man shrugs it off and pushes for them to come up with a way to cover up the fact that Abdon’s men had been under him. However, De Silva gloats over how he had fooled the inhabitants of Sitio Kasanga with his actions into believing that he would lay down his life for the people. Stating that our favorite hero is to blamed for all their troubles, Don Emilio urges that they get their revenge on him.
The Bloody Sun discuss their recent misfortune, and Anton speculates that Senator De Silva might be after them to boost his reputation for the elections and get revenge for the bombing incident they had been blamed for. Tadpole mentions that the senator is probably shady and Bruno seconds him, asking what kind of senator has murderers for bodyguards. Unfortunately for us all, childish, immature Victor pulls through and resorts to cursing our favorite hero. The idiot is quiet delusional as he declares to his brother that he would kill Cardo himself.
“I have plenty of men left,” Don Emilio says to Senator De Silva at his safe house. “Next time, I’ll send twice as many thugs.”
“I suggest we stop all this,” Alvaro urges. “Let the police hunt down Dumaguit and Dalisay. You’ll be taken out of the senatorial race if your name is dragged into this whole mess.”
Homer and his lackeys discuss their encounter with the police the other night, wondering why they had been after them. General Borja informs Oligario about how his men had pursued a group they suspect to be Homer’s gang. Diana suggests that they tell director Hipolito about it but Delfin disagrees, saying that they are yet to confirm their suspicions. Back at the hideout, the rebels deliberate on whether Senator De Silva is the government official protecting g Homer’s group. Meanwhile, De Silva puts on an act at the hospital as some reporters begin hounding him for comments.
