Voiceover: Eto ang drama loventure ng final 6 loveteams. Ito ang magiging basihan ng love council para sa 4th Heartbreak Sunday sa susunod na linggo. Kaninong love story ang magtatapos? Malalaman ninyo next week. But for now, let the Loventure begin sa Qpids Presents... I Love You To Death.
The story begins with Isabel and Carla preparing the food for a surprise birthday party that Isabel is throwing for Felix. She asks Carla if this is the right thing to do, and she is nervous.
Carla reassures her and tells her that this what she is doing is really sweet; Isabel is showing how much she really loves Felix in front of her and the rest of their friends, which is the best gift Isabel could give.
Isabel hopes that after this she and Felix will always be on good terms because they are always fighting.
As Vanessa joins them, Carla then tells Isabel that she understands that it's Isabel's night, and asks her not to get mad, but she also has a big announcement to make.
Carla tells them that lately, "he's" been really sweet to her, and she doesn't know why, but all the signs are there. She then says she thinks she and Mikel are going to get back together, and Isabel and Vanessa are excited, and they share a group hug.
Isabel says that it should be Carla's night as well as hers, because Carla helped so much in planning the party, especially in offering her resthouse to have it in. Carla thanks her and says she really wanted her approval.
Vanessa wonders whether she'll have a love life of her own, as she looks across to the living room, where Carlo is playing on his guitar. Carla tells her that it'll be soon.
The doorbell rings and they all get excited, thinking it might be Felix. Hazel goes to open the door and Alwyn comes in accompanied by Jill.
He introduces himself as Felix's friend, and Hazel brings them over to the dining room, where Carla and Isabel are waiting.
Isabel says to Alwyn that she thought he was the only one coming. He tells her that his date is always stuck to him and doesn't want to leave him alone.
The scene shifts to outside the house, where we see Paw and Mikel arriving together. Paw stops on the way in, and tells Mikel that she's nervous, because she's not sure how she's going to tell everyone that they're a couple now. She wonders what Isabel and Vanessa will say, and most especially what Carla might say.
Mikel replies -- what does she want, to stop how they feel for each other? She says that it's not like that, but rather that it's an understood rule that as someone's friend you're not supposed to go out with his or her ex. Mikel says that if they're really her friends they'll understand, and that he doesn't want to be pretending anymore. Paw says that she doesn't like this feeling, and Mikel reassures her that everything will be all right.
Inside the house, Hazel goes to open the front door once more. Paw and Mikel enter together, but Paw moves into the dining room first, and is greeted excitedly by the other girls.
Mikel follows them in. Carla remarks that it's good that Paw and Mikel's houses are near each other and Mikel was such a gentleman to pick her up.
Night falls and the party is in full swing when Mikel finally sees an opening to tell Carla about his new relationship, while a very worried Paw looks on.
When Mikel tells Carla that he has something to tell her, she tells him that they must really be soulmates because she has something to say to him also, and she asks that he go first.
Outside the house, we see Hazel escorting Janus and Felix, and we learn that Felix isn't excited about coming to the rest house because his relationship with Isabel is currently in a rocky state. Janus lets slip that it's a surprise party for him.
Felix is surprised and asks what surprise party Janus is talking about. Janus tries to correct himself saying he meant "so nice to be with you" and then tells Felix not to say that he was the one who spoiled it for him.
Inside, Mikel is trying to find the right words, and when Carla notices Paw is nearby, she hugs Paw and tells Mikel he can say whatever he wants in front of Paw since Paw is her best friend.
Outside the house, Hazel tells Janus and Felix that they should go in now because everyone's been waiting for them for so long. Janus asks her if he looks cute and she says he's ugly. Janus tells Felix that he's trying to look good because Carla is there.
Just as Mikel is about to tell Carla, Isabel interrupts interrupts them and excitedly tells them that Felix and Janus are about to come in.
Everyone yells "Surprise!" as Janus and Felix enter (and it appears that Janus is the only one who was really surprised). LOL. Everyone gathers around Felix to sing "Happy Birthday" while he is standing there looking not too happy.
The scene shifts to later in the night. Carlo finishes a song and Isabel steps up to the microphone, pulling Felix to stand beside her.
She thanks everyone because they have all played a part in their messy relationship, since they always fight and make up. Isabel continues and says what she truly wants now is him. Even though they always fight, and that he's childish at times, she forgives him because "bear kita".
Everyone says "awwww" and Felix says softly that he is the one at fault now. He scolds her and asks why she had to say that in front of everyone.
Carla comes up and says that they shouldn't keep what they're saying to themselves and instead tell everyone. She points the microphone at Felix just as he shouts that he doesn't like Isabel anymore.
Everyone is shocked, and Carla goes to sit back down. Hurt, Isabel walks out of the house and Carla tells Felix to go follow her.
Janus (with his mouth full) steps up to the microphone and reminds everyone that this is a party and that they should be having fun. At his prompting, Dominic turns up the music.
Concerned, Carla moves to the patio door to keep an eye on Felix and Isabel. Janus sees this as his chance to gain Carla's interest, and he approaches her, telling her to let them be. She says that she hopes they'll be alright since they appear to be making up, but as she walks away from the patio door, she says it feels wrong.
He follows her back to the living room, and starts dancing around her, hoping to get her to dance with him.
Carla tries to escape him by going to the dining room and sitting down at a chair, but Janus follows her and continues his dancing. LOL.
She tries once again to escape him by returning to the living room. This time, she stalls him by giving him the microphone and asking him to sing.
As she leaves Janus, she catches sight of Mikel and Paw seated together and joins them. She recalls that before she and Mikel went out, Paw was the bridge that brought them together, and that Paw was always with Mikel back then.
Then Carla asks Mikel about what he was about to say to her before, and that she has a feeling about what he is going to say.
Paw worriedly asks if Carla knows now, and if it is okay with her, and Carla says that it is okay. She says Mikel has been nice to her recently, and that he wanted to come tonight. Mikel says that he thinks Carla doesn't understand, and Carla says not to be shy around Paw because they are best friends and Paw will be happy for her.
Mikel finally reveals that he and Paw have been a couple for two weeks now. Carla is visibly hurt and turns away. Paw tries to comfort Carla and says they didn't mean to do what they did and she knows that Carla might think that they are really bad friends to do this to her.
Carla pushes Paw away and returns to slap Mikel. She screams at him and says that he made her believe and he has no shame.
Outside, Vanessa has seen something in the pool and starts screaming.
Everyone hears her screams and rushes out to see what is wrong. Jill slaps Vanessa, trying to get her to calm down, but it's only when she's with Carlo that she is able to point to the pool.
The guys, led by Carlo, jump into the pool to pull out Isabel and Felix, who are both floating face down in the water.
They carry the two bodies into the living room and set them down side by side on the floor. Everyone gathers around the bodies, all shocked and upset.
Mikel tells them that they should just get out of there and Paw says that it's not a good idea because the killer might still be in the area. Jill says that maybe they should call their parents but Carla quickly says no, because Carla's parents didn't even know that she used the resthouse for the party. Mikel scolds her for thinking like that and Alwyn says that everyone should just relax. Jill opposes, saying that they can't because some people just died.
Outside, a figure in a black cape is seen approaching the front of the house, while Janus looks like he's getting sick and runs out.
The hooded figure enters the house, and pulls off his hood, and it is Mhyco. The boys all go to stop him from getting too far inside. Mhyco reveals that he is there to deliver pizza, but none of the people in the living room remember ordering it. Mhyco insists that he was asked to deliver it to 45 Qpido Street, but no one believes him.
The rest of the boys subdue him and take him into the next room, where Mikel says they should all tie him to a chair until they figure out what to do.
In the living room, Jill calls the police and explains the situation to them. She then tells everyone the police are on their way so they should all stay here.
Carlo and the rest of the boys come back and tell Carla that they left Hazel, to watch over the pizza guy. Carla scolds them for letting her do that, because Hazel is still in a state of shock. Mikel says that it's Hazel's job to watch over things.
Paw says that this shouldn't have happened, and Mikel goes to comfort her.
Carla is not able to take seeing them together so she leaves saying she'll go get towels. Janus is on the toilet doing his business when Carla bursts in, crying.
Janus passes gas and Carla hears. They see each other and scream.
Janus: Oy! Babes! Plinano mo 'to, 'no?
Carla: Ang kapal ng mukha mo, 'no?!" Ba't nagtatae ka dito tapos hindi mo man lina-lock yung pintuan?
Janus: Sorry, ha.... wala namang pumapasok sa CR na may jumejebs eh. Anyway, paki-abot nalang yung tissue dun, o... please?
Carla, while pinching her nose, glares at him then throws him the roll.
Janus: Salamat, hospitality! LOL.
Carla: Yuck, kadiri ka talaga!
Janus: Tapos... paki na rin (He holds out a tabo) Paki puno ha?
Carla (while filling the container with water): Ba't ayaw bumukas ng pintuan, ha? Anong ginawa mo nanaman? (With her head turned away, she shoves the tabo at him, visibly irritated).
Janus: Salamat talaga! (also irritated) Thank you!
Janus continues: Well, anyway, ano na ba ang nangyayari sa labas?
Carla: Wala! May pizza boy na dumating, tapos mali naman yung bahay niya. Ewan ko...
Janus: O? Dumating na yung pizza ko?
Carla: Ikaw ba nag-order ng pizza na yun? Ha?
As he pulls up his pants, Janus excitedly says that he was the one who ordered it, because he has cravings and "alaga sa tiyan" to take care of. Carla grimaces in disgust. LOL.
With the door stuck, the two of them have no choice but to stay in the rest room. Suddenly, the lights go out and Carla jumps onto Janus.
Janus: Sige... samantalahin mo ang kahinaan ko.
Carla recoils from him when she realizes just how close they are to each other, and she smacks him. LOL.
Still stuck in the bathroom, Carla sits on the counter top, while Janus is standing beside her, leaning against the wall.
Janus: Ano ba 'tong araw na 'to?! Halloween ba o Friday the 13th... at lahat ng kamalasan binagsak sa isang araw.
Carla: Great. At ikaw pa talaga ang nakasama ko.
Janus: Ouuuch!!! Ouch ha! May feelings ako. Ouch. Sorry, ha? Are you serious?
Carla just glares at him in response.
Janus: Oh my God! You're serious! Ouch!
Carla: Janus, tumigil ka na nga! Alam mo, hindi lahat ng bagay pwede mo gawing comedy. Hindi lahat ng bagay pwede mong pagtawanan. Kakamatay lang ng mga kaibigan natin. Hindi mo ba yan na-i-intindihan, ha?
Janus: Bakit? Ikaw lang ba ang nawalan ng kaibigan? Alam mo, kaya dinadaan ko nalang sa tawa ang lahat, eh. Dahil wala naman akong magagawa kung mag-ngangangawa ako sa loob ng CR na 'to. Maibabalik ba nun si Felix o kaya si Isabel? Kahit ano pang nawala sa 'yo, hindi mo yun maibabalik ng mga luha mo.
Carla breaks down and leans her head on his shoulder. He looks at her for a moment, then pats her head to comfort her.
