Oooh. This week—such a small detail, but the intro credits have changed. As we pointed out before, the cast credits went: Gretchen Barretto (Ashi Behati), Albert Martinez (King Anand), then introducing Khalil Ramos (Kiko), Enrique Gil (Jao), Daniel Padilla (Gino), and Kathryn Bernardo (Mikay). It confused me about the OTP (One True Pair); going by order of importance, if we have the heroine at the very end, it would follow that the hero was listed right before her. As we went deeper into the drama, Jao was emerging as the most likely hero, but not in the credits. Well, we have new character montage clips in the credits and a very slight change in the order of the listing– now it’s Khalil, Daniel, Enrique and Kathryn. Which makes a lot more sense in order of importance and puts my mind at rest as to the OTP. In fact, this whole week’s episodes finally give us a clear hint who the real OTP is.
Last week, we left Mikay being fired by Behati from being Jao’s tutor and being deprived of her scholarship as well. Now she comes out the door, sniffing, trying not to cry, and goes out to flag down a taxi. Jao runs out the door after her, asking what she’s doing. Since he hadn’t heard what his mother said, he wonders if Mikay’s angry that he didn’t give the camera back immediately. She says she’s not, and he hands the camera over, explaining that he did want to return it but never found the right opportunity—oh, and why is she sad? Instead of answering, she just says she wants to go home. He immediately insists on taking her in the car. Behati comes to the door and watches as they get in the car and leave.
Gino is still fidgeting on the sofa, and this time it’s Bianca who comes downstairs to asks why he’s doing this– is he in love with her sister? Gino calls her on the fact that it’s the first time she’s ever referred to Mikay as her sister, adding that he was helping Mikay because no one else was on her side, not even Bianca. Bianca: “Sorry. I was busy. Are you in love with Mikay?” Gino: “What’s it to you?” Bianca smirks, having confirmed her suspicions.
In Yangdon, the general of the army reports to King Anand that the rebels seem to have disappeared. Also, there are indications that what the rebels really want isn’t independence– but the crown.
