Francis and Mayumi have noodles at the eatery. Francis apologized for what he said to Mayumi, made it clear that he wasn’t dating Isabelle and asked that they become friends. Mayumi offered to pay for their noodles as a way to apologize as well and accepted his friendship.
Hernan went to see Luisa and she told him that she was going to visit Mario’s grave. Hernan went with her and thanked Mario for everything he had done for her.
The following day at work, Francis stayed with Mayumi to supervise her work. She told him it was okay for him to ask someone else but Francis said he didn’t mind. During lunchtime, they agreed to meet at the noodle eatery and eat together. Francis went to his office to get something but Isabelle was waiting. She asked him to have lunch with her at a new restaurant but Francis refused since he had plans.
Mayumi was about to order her own food since Francis wasn’t coming but he arrived just as she was placing her order. He asked for a bowl too and Mayumi was surprised that he knew the owner. He told her that he was a regular there and they got to find out that they both had humble backgrounds.
Isabelle saw them as she drove out for lunch with Daphne and was appalled that Francis declined her invitation to go out with Mayumi. She waited for Mayumi to come back and told him to stay away from Francis. Mayumi told her not to worry because she was not interested in him.
Hernan went to see Luisa again and invited her and Baby to see his Coco farm. They were impressed to see how highly the workers thought of Hernan and Hernan showed them the trucks he had named after Mario. He said that he wanted to remember Mario and Luisa said she was mistaken to question Hernan’s intentions before. Luisa teased him for being gay but Hernan flirted with her by saying he could prove to her that he wasn’t.
Later, they had a drink and reminisced together. They talked about their children and Hernan expressed his admiration for Luisa. He went as far as kissing her but Luisa pulled away and slapped him. She left in a hurry with Mum Baby and refused to get a ride from Hernan.
Francis went to see Mayumi in the lab. She was curt with him and asked him to go home as she finished up with work. There was a noise and Mayumi suddenly jumped in Francis’s arms. He asked her what was wrong and Mayumi said she was afraid of rats. Francis laughed and teased her as he left.
Isabelle saw the two of them and attacked Mayumi again after Francis left. She told Luisa to stop flirting with Francis and accused her of being a gold digger like her mother. Mayumi made it clear that her mother was not interested in Hernan but Mayumi would not listen. She smeared Mayumi’s face with a test product hoping to ruin her face. Mayumi poured powder on Isabelle and they ended up pulling each other’s hair.
Isabelle went out and vented with her friends. She told them about Mayumi and they said that Francis probably liked her. Isabelle however said that she wouldn’t let anyone take Francis away from her.
Luisa told Mum Baby that Hernan kissed her and Mum Baby deduced that Hernan liked her. Luisa thought it wasn’t the case and Hernan only kissed her because he was drunk. She also asked Baby not to say anything to Mayumi.
Hernan talked to his friend at home about kissing Luisa and admitted that he liked her. Isabelle walked in on them and asked who her father liked. They told her that he liked a new business that he was planning to invest in. Mayumi let it go but then announced that she would be firing Mayumi. Hernan asked Isabelle what happened and she said that Isabelle attacked her. She said that Mayumi was flirting with Francis but Hernan said he would hear Mayumi’s side first and not fire her because of petty reasons.
The following day at work, Isabelle fired Mayumi. Mayumi refused to go anywhere and said that only Hernan could fire her. Isabelle pushed her and Francis saw them. She went to stop Isabelle and asked what was going on.
Mayumi told him that Isabelle wanted to fire her because she saw them hugging. She made it clear that Francis was not her type and Isabelle did not need to feel threatened. Isabelle said she could never compete with her and pushed her again. Hernan arrived and asked Isabelle to stop.
