Qpids: Episode 9.0

The episode opens with Luis introducing this week's episode via voiceover: "This Sunday, out of town na loventure sa beautiful province of Bohol ang pagdadaanan ng loveteams."

The Arrival

We then see the loveteams arriving in Bohol by plane. They disembark and are handed the first clue, which Janus reads out loud: "Haller! Qpids Loveteams, pumunta sa Baclayon Church."



Luis (voiceover): Kailangang pumunta ng mga loveteams sa Baclayon Church, ang pinakamantandang simbahan sa Bohol. Duon nag-aantay ang surprise letter para sa kanila.

-----

Starting Point

We see the loveteams arriving at the church, and Dominic picks up the clue and reads it: "Congratulations, loveteams. It's time to have fun sa panibagong loventure ninyo sa Bohol. But, there is a twist."

Luis (voiceover): Bonding session ang Bohol Loventure. Wala silang gagawin kundi mag-enjoy. Pero, bubuhol-buholin ang mga loveteams, so loveteams, it's time to switch partners!

  • Group A. Mikel, CARLA, Andrea, and Mhyco
  • Group C. Hazel, JANUS, Vane, and Alwyn.
As the loveteam partners bid each other goodbye, we see Janus standing in the courtyard near the other cast members. He is patting himself on the back, saying "Pakabait ka, Janus" and "Take care, Janus" and "Wala bang magpapa-alam sa akin?" LOL.



Alwyn sees him and tries to give him a hug, but Janus (in mock anger) pushes Alwyn away saying -- "Wala akong kaibigan! Wala akong loveteam! Don't touch me!" LOL. Alwyn persists and manages to pull Janus closer to one of the cameras, saying "Dito ka mag-angst." LOL.

The camera eventually pans to the left, and we see Carla standing just off to the side, smiling and shaking her head in amusement at Janus' antics.

Each group climbs into separate jeepneys that have been assigned to them for the day. Each group has their own Bohol Loventure, but all the clues are written in Bisaya! LOL.

Group A was assigned to proceed to the Punta Cruz Watch Tower. Upon arriving there, they have to climb the tower and have their photos taken.

Group C was assigned to proceed to a boat rental near the Tarsier Sanctuary, and Luis explains that the Tarsier is an endangered species that can only be found in Bohol province.

-----

On the Road

With their instructions now translated and understood, the groups head off on their separate loventures.

In Group A, Carla, Mikel, Mhyco, and Andrea are all seated apart from each other on their jeepney, and hardly anyone is talking.



Over at Group C, Hazel is reading out loud Mhyco's text message, where he's asking her to not go near the two guys (Alwyn and Janus) while he's far away from her. Janus jokingly says that Hazel has a "Mhyco force field" around her, which prevents anyone from getting near her.



He demonstrates by pretending to move near her and getting bounced off by an invisible force field. LOL.

We then see Group C arrive at the Tarsier Sanctuary, where they realize that they've misunderstood their clue (they were supposed to go on the boat ride first).

Luis (voiceover): Sila Carla and Mhyco naman, miss na miss na ang kanilang loveteams.

Carla: Walang nagpapatawa sa akin. :(



-----

First Stops

Group A finally arrives at the Punta Cruz Watchtower, but it is raining hard when they get there, and Carla comments that the weather reflects their moods while they're separated from their loveteams.

They disembark from the jeep, and climb the watch tower and start taking the the required photos to complete the task.



After finishing the task, they receive their 2nd clue (written again in Bisaya) and learn that they now have to go to Laway, Bohol and look for Mang Roberto.

Group C has finally found someone who can translate their bisaya instructions, and she directs them to the tarsiers. The pairs have to have their photos taken with these rare, endangered animals. Janus has his photo taken with Hazel.



After they've all finished their photo session, the group is gathered together at the entrance to the sanctuary, and Janus describes Carla's departure earlier: "Siya talaga, dire-diretso lang eh."

Hazel: Alam mo, baka nasa-sad lang yun, na hiniwalay kayo.

Vane: Oo nga... sad lang yun dahil hindi kayo magkasama.



Janus: Ah. Sad ba pag-ganun (he uses his fingers to push his face into a smile). Gaganun-ganun pa sa backpack (he hops around in pretend glee).

Hazel: Ano?! Alam mo, ayaw lang niya ipahalata.

Janus (in mock outrage): Oy, huwag ninyo akong iloko. 15 years old na ako, alam ko na! LOL

Then the conversation shifts....

Janus: Wala naman talaga kaming past ni Hazel eh. (He looks at her) Sabihin mo sa kanila. Wala tayong past.



Hazel (looking into the camera): Wala po kaming past.

Luis (voiceover): Ay! Dineny.

Later...

Luis (voiceover): Sina Carla and Mikel naman, mukhang apektado pa sa kanilang past tampuhan.

We see Mikel resting his head on his forearms at a corner table, sitting away from everyone else.



Carla: Nasa-sad siya na wala si Paw. Lahat naman kami sad eh. Tamo si Mhych. Sad ka Mhych?

Mhyco: Siyempre!

Luis (voiceover): Ano ba talaga ang rason ng dedmahan?

Carla: Parang sinasabi niya (Mikel) na hindi kami (JaRla) magaling umarte. Hindi naman namin sinasabi na perfect kami, pero tina-try namin. Naghihintay lang ako na mag-sorry siya sa amin ni Janus.

Luis (voiceover): Si Mikel naman, nagsasarili sa isang tabi. Pare! Huwag mong kimkimin 'yan.

Mikel: I just have enough problems already at hand. It's already hard enough for me, tapos dadagdagan pa.

Luis (voiceover, while scenes of Carla and Mikel on the bus from Subic are shown): Ano ba guys? Diba dati kayong best of friends?

Mikel: Basta, wala na akong gustong maka-away. Peace na. Kahit war kayo sa akin, basta peace ako sa inyo.

-----

Second Stops

We next see Group A back on the jeepney, and Carla is trying to read the clue in bisaya and she finally gives up and goes to ask the driver.



Mhyco, Mikel, and Andrea remain seated on the jeep looking sad and depressed. They learn that they have to go crab-hunting.

Luis (voiceover): Next Loventure location (ng Group A)... ang alimanguhan sa may Barangay Agape. Ang Group C, tapos nang makipagsosyalan sa mga tarsiers.

Alwyn: Alas dose na.

Vane: Kaya mag-lunch muna tayo.

Janus: Launch? Ano i-lo-launch natin?

Luis (voiceover): Sa Loboc river, kailangang maghanap ang bawat loveteam ng pasahero sa banca, at kailangang kantahan nila ito ng "Si Felimon," isang popular na folk song sa Visayas. O loveteams! Rehearse na! Galingan niyo naman!



We see the four of them singing and rehearsing while the neighborhood kids have gathered outside the karinderia to watch them. LOL!

Luis (voiceover): Sikat na talaga ang mga Qpids loveteams! Pati sa Bohol, dinudumog!

------

Third Stops

Luis (voiceover): Papunta na ang tatlong grupo sa susunod nilang loventure. Kakayanin kaya nila ang pagsubok na 'to? Ngayon na memorize na nila Janus ang kanta, kailangan nilang maghanap ng mga pasahero na kakantahan nila habang nag-kru-cruise sa Loboc River. Makahanap naman kaya kayo?

We see Group C putting on lifevests and inviting people to join them on the cruise.



Luis (voiceover): Pero ang grupo nila Carla, Mikel, Mhyco at Andrea, mukhang hindi parin nagba-bonding sa kanilang alimango-hunting.

We see Group A arrive and Mikel and Carla gingerly get on one of the bancas to go crab-hunting.



Luis (voiceover): Try niyo kaya mag-usap, Carla at Mikel.

As the boat drifts along the river, the two of them are seated at opposite ends of the boat and are still not talking.

Carla: Janus, walang kabuhay-buhay ang mundo ko kapag wala ka!

We then see them pull crab traps out of the water.

Luis (voiceover): Iba talaga ang grupo nila ni Janus. Performance level to the max.

We see (and hear) Hazel and Vanessa singing "Si Felimon" at the top of their voices, complete with dance moves from Alwyn and Janus in the background. Janus is gyrating his hips like a macho dancer, and pretending to strip as the girls sing loudly. LOL.



Luis (voiceover): Tama na Janus, at baka masuka si Manang sa ginagawa mo.

We next see Janus and Hazel seated side by side on the banca, as it continues to move down the Loboc River.

Luis (voiceover): Naku! Mukhang nawawala na ang force field, Janus! Sumbong ko kayo kay Mhyco!

As the boat floats down the river, we see an old man sitting by the shore, waving at the banca. When Vanessa returns his wave, Janus pulls a practical joke on Vanessa.



Janus: Kinawayan mo na eh. Ayun o... tinitingnan ka na... Bahala ka! Pag-uwi mo, may tumutubo na sa likod. Kaya hindi namin kinawayan eh. (Vanessa really looks worried by now.) Kasi, pag kinawayan mo, isasama kayo sa mundo niya. (He looks at the other passengers on the boat with them and says) Diba?

Luis (voiceover) : Hala ka, Vane. Gagawin kang prinsesa... sa ilalim ng lupa!



Vanessa looks at Janus all worried, and finally he says: "Joke lang!!!" and gives her a hug.

Vanessa: Joke lang?!

Janus: Joke lang!! Iiyak na o...

Luis (voiceover): Akala ko smooth sailing na ang cruise. Pero itong si Janus, kanina pa pala naaapektohan ng pagsasama nila ng kanyang dating nililigawan na si Hazel.

Janus: Siyempre nasaktan ako, kahit papaano... nag-invest ako ng emotions sa kanya (pointing to Hazel). Kinakanta nga namin kanina yung ano... yung "Eyes On Me." Diba, yun yung ano...



Luis (voiceover): Uy, naaalala nila ang kanilang theme song.

Finally...

Luis (voiceover): Oras na para mag-reunion ang mga loveteams sa kanilang final stop, ang Bohol Tropics Resort sa Tagbilaran City, Bohol.

Everyone looks eager to get back and be reunited with their partners as they head back to the resort.

------

BULL SESSION

During the evening, the six remaining loveteams gathered together for a Bull Session, and everyone got a chance to clear the air and say whatever they wanted to say.

Luis (voiceover): Hindi inaasahan ng ating Top 6 loveteams ang final loventure nila sa Bohol -- ang magkaroon ng open talk para mailabas nila ang tunay nilang nararamdaman sa isa't.

-----

Janus and Carla

Janus was the first to receive the Qpids envelope with the instructions for the Bull Session.



Janus: Diba you always ask me the question, kahit pabiro na... am I falling for you. Lagi kitang tinatawan. And this time, I just wanna tell you na... sometimes I'm falling for you, and sometimes I'm not. Because mahirap yung situation natin.



Janus: I know na may ibang laman ang puso mo. Alam naman natin kung sino yun, diba? And we all know it's Mikel.

Luis (voiceover): Personal choice ni Carla si Mikel bilang loveteam partner niya nuon. Pero ang pinili ni Mr. Qpido para sa kanya ay si Janus.

Janus: Meron ako nagiging feeling na parang sometimes, ewan ko kasi kung ano ang pinag-awayan ninyong dalawa, pero sometimes feeling ko nagiging instrument lang ako to make him jealous.



Anne (voiceover): Si Janus ang nanalo bilang ka-loveteam ni Carla. Pero sa puso ni Carla? Si Janus din kaya ang totoong wagi?

Janus: I can't make someone fall for me if she's falling for someone else.

Carla: I had a thing for Mikel in the past, but hindi kita ginagawang panakip-butas or object na ipagseselosan niya. No. I'm honestly really happy with you.



Janus: Because I'm Mr. Qpido's choice. Not your choice.

Carla: Of course not! Akala ko talaga wala kang interest sakin. Pinili ko si Mikel kasi pinili niya ako sa sayaw, pinili niya ako sa table. (she starts crying) Akala ko nga ako lang ang princess na maiiwan mag-isa sa table eh.



Carla: Ang hindi ko maintindihan sa 'yo, sinasabi mo pangit ka. Ikaw lang ang nagsasabi nun. Galit ka ba sa akin dahil akala mo you're not good enough for me? Na I don't appreciate you and hindi mo kapantay si Mikel?

Janus: I'm not mad at you. Gusto ko lang talaga na masabi na talaga sayo kesa ma-ipon ko lang ng ma-ipon... then I'll get mad at you. Sabi ko nga sa 'yo diba... ang hirap mag-invest ng emotions sa isang tao na parang wala diyan.



Janus: Pero hindi ko talaga pwedeng pigilan yung nararamdaman ko kasi hindi mo naman mapipigilan ang puso mo na eventually mahalin ang isang tao na lagi mong nakakasama.

Anne (voiceover, as we see Janus and a tearful Carla hug each other, with Janus also teary eyed): Awwww.... Sana matuluyan nang makalimutan ni Carla ang kanyang past with Mikel. Para growing strong na talaga sila ni Janus.



As they are hugging each other, Janus seems to say something to Carla, and she nods her head in response.

Luis (voiceover, as we see Carla sitting back on the sidelines beside Paw, and Paw places her cheek on Carla's shoulder): Ang panahon nalang ang makapagsasabi niyan, Nips.

------

Janus and Hazel

Anne (voiceover): Sino kaya ang susunod na kakausapin ni Janus?

Janus: Hindi ko talaga mapigilan yung sarili ko na masaktan talaga dun sa pagtrato niyo sa akin.



Hazel (in her interview): Nilinawan naman ni Janus. Kasi nagustuhan ko rin siya dati, because he's funny. Tapos, for some reason, parang ... secret nalang yun.

Janus: Kahit papaano diba? Nag-invest ako ng emotions sa 'yo. Kung hindi man nag-work out yung sa atin, I just hope na hindi mo ako tini-treat na parang diring-diri ka sa akin.

Hazel: You know naman na nagustuhan kita. Kahit si Mhyco alam yun. Lagi kong sinasabi, I'm the type of person na seryoso. Hindi ako yung tao na walang problema. At ikaw yung nagpatawa sa akin. Pero, hanggang dun lang yun. Kung ano man yung naramdaman ko sa 'yo nuon, walang-wala yun sa happiness na nararamdaman ko kay Mhyco.



Janus: Gusto ko lang talaga kasi malinaw. Ano ba talaga... ano ba tayo? May past ba tayo? O wala?

Hazel: Oo... yeah. Lumapit ka sa akin and I gave something in return.

Anne (voiceover): Hay, Manzano! Nothing like being friends with your ex!

Luis (voiceover): Hmm! Parang tayo!

Anne (voiceover): Pero ang tanong... ngayon na inamin na nila sa lahat ang naging past nila, ma-aapektohan kaya ang kanilang mga loveteam partners?

------

Carla and Mikel

Luis (voiceover): Susunod na mag-uusap, sila Carla and Mikel.

Anne (voiceover): Personal choice ni Carla si Mikel, pero si Janus ang napili as her final loveteam partner.

Luis (voiceover): Maraming intriga ang umikot sa dalawa. Magkagalit daw ito at nakita naman natin ito kanina sa Bohol Loventure.

Anne (voiceover): Once and for all, CarMikel, ano ba talaga nangyari sa inyong dalawa?

Mikel: Carla, you wanted to say something?

Carla: Ang kapal ng mukha mo! (She is crying as she talks) Unang una, I liked you... and you broke my heart. Bakit mo ako ginawang tanga?

Mikel: All I really wanted was ...?

Carla: Alam ko naman na mabuti kang tao, lahat naman tayo mabuti. Kaso lang... hindi ko talaga alam what I did to deserve this. Wala ka bang masasabi? Why are you so closed? What are you afraid of?

Mikel: Everyone. I promised myself I would never trust anyone else ever again. It's like... you love someone for three years... (He starts cyring) Sorry... I don't want to cry... Have you ever made tiyaga that much... for like three years. God, for three years! I trusted her and I told her everything about me, and I just don't want to end up like a mess. I didn't want to hurt your feelings or anything. I'm just trying to keep my own little world, because it's the only thing I have.

Carla: The best advice I can give you as a friend, is to start getting control of your life.

Mikel: Okay. (Carla holds out her hand, with her pinky finger extended and as they shake on it, he says) Deal.

Luis (voiceover): Kaya naman pala hirap itong si Mikel magtiwala... dahil nasaktan na siya before.

Anne (voiceover): Hay. Pero at least, nasabi na nila kung anong gusto nila, at sana, magka-ayos na sila for good.

------

As a montage of scenes from the Bull Session is aired, we hear:

Luis (voiceover): Tapos na ang Bohol session ng Qpids. Maraming issue ang napag-usapan.

Anne (voiceover): Siyempre Manzano, hindi naman inaasahan na magka-ayusan nalang lahat bigla diba? Kasi for those na nasaktan, healing really does take time.

We then see the 6 pairs back at the airport, boarding the flight out of Bohol.

Luis (voiceover): Ngayon na mas nakilala na nila ang isa't-isa, mas nagkakaintindihan na sila.

Anne (voiceover): Kakailanganin talaga nila yung bonding na yan, dahil next week, another Loventure awaits them... ang youth drama series kung saan magkakasubukan sa acting-an ang lahat.

Luis (voiceover): Eto ang magiging basehan ng acting love council for our 4th Heartbreak Sunday.

Anne (voiceover): Kaya sabay-sabay pa rin tayo makilig sa susunod na loventure sa show na punong-puno ng pag-ibig...

Luis and Anne (voiceover): Qpids! Dito ang Puso Niyo!
