Hernan talks to Mayumi and Isabelle about fighting at work. She asked them to be professional and told Mayumi to go back to work because she wasn’t fired. Isabelle was upset and stayed behind to speak to Hernan. Hernan reminded Isabelle that she was the COO and heir of the company and had to behave accordingly. He asked her to stop clinging on to Francis and respect herself as the boss.
Hernan spoke to Francis and asked him if there was no chance of him and Isabelle dating each other. He liked Francis because he was hardworking but Francis said they would only remain friends. He explained that it would cause rumors around the company if he dated Isabelle. It seemed like he was still not over his ex girlfriend.
Mayumi saw Francis at the office and handed him some documents. She made it clear that she didn’t want to have any problems at work because of associating with him so she asked him to keep his distance. Francis agreed to it but said that he would still supervise her work.
Isabelle was upset that Mayumi did not get fired and expressed her disappointment to Daphne. Daphne said it was better because Mayumi could sue them over the issue. Isabelle still wanted Mayumi gone so Daphne suggested that they sabotage her work instead.
Mayumi was getting ready to present her new product to the bosses. Isabelle offered to pay her secretary to add acid to the sample that Mayumi had prepared.
Before Mayumi went to present the product, Francis passed by the lab and took a look at the sample. Later, when Mayumi applied it to the person who was to test it, her face began to itch. She got burned and was brought to the hospital. Mayumi was shocked after what happened and Isabelle fired her on the spot.
Hernan went to visit Mario’s grave and apologized to him for pursuing Luisa. He later went to see her to confess that he liked her.
Luisa had been waiting for Hernan to call her and apologize for what happened and was upset when he didn’t. She went to sell her supplies with Mum Baby and Hernan followed her there and told him that he had feelings for her. He apologized for how the kiss happened but he was not sorry that he did it. Luisa would not listen to him but Hernan expressed that he was sincere. He asked her to meet him the next day and if she didn’t, he would stop pursuing her.
Isabelle packed Mayumi’s things and told her to leave. Mayumi demanded to have an investigation to find out what happened to her samples but Isabelle wouldn’t let her. She called security to drag her out. Mayumi remembered seeing Francis with the sample and hence accused him of sabotage. Francis made it clear that he did not do anything and decided to investigate.
Francis’ colleague at work found out that Isabelle paid someone to ruin Mayumi’s sample. He told Francis and Francis confronted Isabelle. He assured her that nothing was going on between her and Mayumi and asked Isabelle to hire her back. Isabelle was upset to see him defend her but Francis said it wouldn’t look good to the board if they found out what she did. Isabelle said they wouldn’t know and Francis agreed not to tell on her for the sake of their friendship. He however asked Isabelle to hire Mayumi back because she was talented and they would lose more if she left the company. He said that Isabelle would stand to gain more with Mayumi around.
Mayumi went back to the building to check the security footage but Daphne kicked her out. She was on the way out when Francis’s friend stopped her at the lobby. Francis went down to tell her that she could get back to work but Mayumi could not believe it. Isabelle joined them and agreed to let Mayumi go back to work. Mayumi was glad that she had her job back.
That evening, Luisa seemed to be in deep thought and Mayumi asked what was going on. She finally told Mayumi that Hernan confessed having feelings for her and Mayumi was delighted. Luisa was however skeptical about accepting his advances. The episode ends with Hernan talking to his friend about Luisa because he was not sure where the liked him.
