Qpids: Episode 15.0

The Week 15 episode of Qpids is entitled, "Bunong Braso," and is the continuation of last week's Qpids drama-serye.

CF's Note: Episode summary text courtesy of Angelica. Thank you!! Also, this entry only contains scenes related to Carla and Janus.


Mikel opens with the voiceover: "Sa buhay, kung sino ang mahusay siya ay tinitingala, at kung sino ang naduduwag, siya ay minamaliit. Hindi ko alam kung anong kape ang na-inom ni Paw noon at naisipin niya hamunin ako, pero hindi ka dapat matakot sa mga hamon na dumating. [audio is a bit fuzzy. will try to catch it again next time]"

The scene shifts to the present, to the interior of the Coffee King shop. Mikel is handing out flyers to Alwyn and Janus advertising the opening of the brand new "Coffee King." He asks them to hand out the flyers for the store's opening tomorrow. As Janus and Alwyn sit down to look at the flyers, Paw storms into Mikel's store and yells at him for having no shame in inviting her to the opening of his shop. Mikel asks what's the problem, and Paw responds that inviting her is equivalent to insulting her.

She then hands Janus and Alwyn the flyers for her coffeeshop, "Barako ni Manang." Alwyn reads the flyer out loud, and it reveals that Paw's coffee shop is offering a 10% discount. Mikel looks at the flyer and makes fun of Paw's drawing in the flyer.

He then challenges Paw's 10% discount by stepping it up with a 15% discount for his own coffee. Paw grabs her flyer and writes it up to a 20% discount. Janus scolds them both for acting like kids and tells them that they might end up going bankrupt if they keep doing this... they might as well give the coffee away for free! He tells them that he wants them both to make some money.

Mikel replies that he has better things to do. Annoyed, Paw walks out of the coffeeshop and Janus follows her out, and Mikel mocks Paw again behind her back and goes to the back room of his own coffeeshop.


That night, Carla stands in front of the brand new Coffee King and cuts the ribbon to officially open the store. Everyone claps, and at Mikel's invitation, they enter the shop.

Janus compliments Carla on her speech, and she says cutting a ribbon isn't all that complicated. When Carla introduces her friend Marc from Manila to them, Jill immediately becomes interested when she hears his name and notices the curly hair and dark skin. Alwyn then introduces Jill to Carla and Marc.

Janus joins Carla while she is at a table doing some paperwork. He asks her why she's doing work now, and Carla responds that she has an event tomorrow to attend to -- "Bulilit Day," an outreach day for children. She says that she's so fond of children because she herself is an only child, then asks Janus whether he likes children. Janus without thinking says that yes, he would like to have a child with her -- to which Carla's eyes open wide with surprise. He corrects himself and says that he meant to say he likes children too.

She tells him that Marc is coming along tomorrow, and invites Janus to come too -- the more the merrier! Janus happily accepts and says that she's strong -- err, "malakas" with him.

Just then, Mikel joins them at the table and says that running the shop is so tiring. Carla takes his hand and reassures him that he can do it, and Janus uneasily looks at their joined hands, feeling jealous.


The next day, Janus, Alwyn, Jill, Carla, and Marc are at the "Bulilit Day 2005." They hand out toys to the children and Janus joins the children crowding around Carla, reaching for the toys that she is handing out. At one point, he is almost swooning as he gets to hold her hand. hehe.

Later in the event, Carla reads a story to the children and Janus stares at her, mesmerized, but then when Carla notices, he just smiles and shrugs it off.

We also see Carla having her picture taken with all of the kids there and she also has a photo with Janus. She then gets the camera to take a picture of Janus and Marc together, and Janus tries to move away while Marc puts his arm around him. LOL.


The scene shifts to later that day, in front of Coffee King. Paw is about to come to blows with Mikel, but her aunts are holding her back.

Janus, Alwyn, Carla, and Marc come out, and Janus switches to his gay mode in front of Paw's aunts. He asks what is going on, and Mikel coolly replies that Paw came to the front of his shop so all his customers could watch her. Paw bursts out again and her aunts hold her back, and Mikel tells her that he has better things to do than fight with her. He invites everyone to the Acoustics Night at his shop at 8 PM.

Paw evens the score by announcing that there will be a special event at their coffeeshop too -- and her aunts declare that they will have a special comedy show with Janus as the host. Janus is taken by surprise, but goes along with the idea.

On the spur of the moment, Mikel then replies that Alwyn will be the singer at his Acoustics Night, and Alwyn is surprised also. Mikel then advises Alwyn to drink Salabat to make his voice sound better. He then wishes Paw and her aunts good luck, and walks back into the shop.

Paw then begs Janus to do the show for her, and Janus replies in a gay manner that he can't do it alone. Suddenly, a bug lands on Marc and he squeals like a little girl, much to everyone's surprise. Janus looks at Marc with new eyes, and informs Paw that he knows exactly who his partner should be for the night.


Later that evening, Paw and Janus are together in her coffee shop, preparing for their comedy show. Janus is dressed up in drag with heavy eye make-up.

Paw thanks Janus for helping out as she fixes his drag-queen wig. Janus prays that people won't throw tomatoes at him during the show, and that hopefully something will happen so that Carla won't show up --- and Carla walks in just as he is saying her name.

Carla excitedly hugs Paw and compliments Janus on his drag-queen beauty. She presents him with flowers as a thank-you gesture since he accompanied her yesterday at the Bulilit Day. She tells him that she's excited to see them perform, and a very embarrassed Janus calls out to Marc to ask him if he's ready. Marc opens the door and they all scream in shock. Janus manages to shout, "Perfection!" in a gay manner with a smile.

Outside, a crowd has gathered in front of the makeshift stage. Hazel and Jill join Paw, Carla, and TJ at the show, and TJ mentions to Paw that he really needs to leave. Paw asks him, why now, especially during the show? Just then, Paw's aunt gets up on the stage to introduce Janus and Marc.

TJ promises Paw he'll make it up to her and gets up to leave, just as Paw's aunt introduces "Janice" and "Marcuva." Janus and Marc come out in their flashy drag-queen glory, and begins their comedy show with gay humor. Hazel quietly asks Jill if Marc is turning out to be gay, and Jill looks at her puzzled.

Janus turns the stage over to Marc, and Marc attempts to make fun of a chubby man in the audience. He brings the man up on stage and the man punches Marc in the face. Carla's bodyguards get up and pull out their guns while they push the man away. Paw's aunts and Janus get up to help Marc, and the audience runs away in the ensuing melee.

Marc leans on Janus and thanks him for being his hero, and Paw's aunts come out with and ice-pack for Marc's bruises and take him to the hospital. Paw apologizes to everyone saying she just wasted their time. She suggests that they all go and attend Mikel's Acoustic Night instead. Janus tells her that they can't just leave her here after everything that happened, but Paw tells him to go because she wants to be alone.

Hazel and Jill bid everyone farewell and go on their way, and then Carla leaves with her bodyguards. Janus gets up but hesitates to leave, saying he'll stay and help her clean up, but he eventually leaves when Paw urges him to go.


At Coffee King, Carla and Janus enter together to find Alwyn up on stage playing the guitar and singing "Crazy for You".

At one point, both Janus and Carla are swaying to the music and they accidentally bump heads. LOL.

Later that evening, Janus is standing alone at the top of the stairs, practicing what he will say to Carla to reveal to her that he's not gay. Carla surprises him from behind and asks him who he's talking to and he replies "Carlo," some random customer.

She tells him that her ride is there, and asks if he wants to go with her home, but Janus declines and instead offers to just walk her to her car because he is going to stop by Paw's coffeeshop.

Janus mentions how good Alwyn was at singing and that it's good that Mikel's coffeeshop is doing well even though there was trouble at Paw's coffeeshop. Janus is about to say something more, but Carla begins to comment on how great Mikel is at business and mentions his many talents, including the fact that he's cute. She then tells Janus not to tell Mikel she said so or else his ego might get too big.

She then asks Janus what he was about to say, but Janus, feeling defeated and jealous, says it's nothing -- and that her car was already waiting outside. Carla mentions that it's a shame that Marc is returning to Manila so soon, because she thought that he and Janus would have made a good couple. Carla hurries off and bids Janus goodbye, and Janus looks hurt and doesn't respond.

As the episode ends, Mikel says in a voice over:
"Tulad ng Bunong Braso, may mga laban talaga na kailan mong harapin mag-isa... pero minsan, nakakakuha ka ng lakas mula sa mga tao na nasa paligid mo..."

We see Carla leaving the Coffee King, just as Janus chases after her to reveal his feelings. But he is too late, and dejected, he stops and sits on the stairs. Before long, Alwyn and Mhyco join him on the steps to offer their support.

Mikel: " sa mga pagkakataon na hindi mo inaasahan, mismo kalaban mo ay nagbibigay sayo ng lakas, para sa mga susunod ng laban."

Mhyco, Janus, and Alwyn enter the Coffee King to find Paw and Mikel together.

Mhyco gives Paw a hug and wipes away a tear, and Alwyn and Janus ask her and Mikel if they are okay now. They nod, and Janus says for everyone to give a group hug. Paw replies "beste ven" and Janus and Alwyn think she say "Steven" and ask who is "Steven." They laugh and begin to sing their childhood taunt about Paula, and everyone smiles.

They play around and give each other another group hug, as the episode ends.

Qpids: Episode 14.0

The Qpids Episode for Week 14 is entitled "Taguan". Today's show is the first of five episodes in the Qpids Dramaserye for the Top 4 Qpids Loveteams.

This entry contains only highlights related to the characters of Carla and Janus.

CF's Note: Screenshots will follow later.


Prologue -- 1996

In this episode's prologue (via Alwyn's voiceover), we learn that Alwyn, Janus, Mikel, and Mhyco are childhood friends who grew up together in the same neighborhood. We see them as four young boys, playing hide and seek (taguan) together near the coffee shop that is owned by the parents of their friend Paula.

Their friendship was forged when one day, two men attempted to rob the coffee shop of Paula's family. The boys figured that they could help thwart the robbery by letting the air out of the tires of the robbers' cars. The police were able to arrest the robbers thanks to the boys' brave act.

As a token of appreciation, one of the police officers gave them the tire they had deflated. Not only did the tire become their makeshift swing (when tied to a tree branch), it also came to symbolize their friendship.

Unfortunately, despite their commitment to stay together as friends, Alwyn had to leave for the US with his mother, and it is only 9 years later that he gets a chance to return and reconnect with his friends.

The Present

It is 9 years later. Alwyn and his mother arrive at their house and are greeted by Alwyn's father and second wife (who happens to be the sister of Alwyn's mother). We learn that they have arrived from the US in time to attend the debut of Hazel, Alwyn's sister; the debut is scheduled for the next evening, and at his father's request, Alwyn agrees to be Hazel's escort.

Hazel joins them in the living room, but she shows no enthusiasm whatsoever at the return of her mother and brother, and even less interest in her upcoming debut. She rushes to leave the house, saying she is late for school.

While the family is still gathered in the living room chatting, Janus arrives to greet his long lost friend. Alwyn at first does not recognize Janus, but he is happy when he realizes that it is Janus.

Janus then asks "O... kamusta na ba 'yan? Okay na ba yan?" while pointing at Alwyn's chest. Alwyn says, "Eto, may turnilyo sa loob, pero okay pa naman, tumatakbo pa naman." Alwyn then invites Janus upstairs to chat and catch up while he's changing.


The two friends go to visit Mhyco, as he is out at a nearby ranch tending to horses. Alwyn is excited to see his friend, but there are a few awkward moments, as Mhyco is embarrassed about his job and economic status, but both Alwyn and Janus show that they're more interested in Mhyco's friendship than Mhyco's (lack of) money.

Alwyn learns that life has been tough for their friend. Mhyco's family suffered financial losses, and so they had to move out of their subdivision, and Mhyco is now working as a stable boy in one of the ranches.

Alwyn says that he just got back because it will be his sister's debut the following evening. Mhyco asks about Hazel -- they apparently know each other but it has been a while since they've been in touch.

Alwyn asks Mhyco how he is, saying that it's been a while. Janus pipes in remarking that it seems like Mhyco has been avoiding him. Alwyn takes the opportunity to invite Mhyco to attend his sister's debut. Mhyco at first says no, but he finally relents and agrees.


As Alwyn and Janus are in the car driving back, Janus tells Alwyn that he has lost touch with Mikel after the latter moved to Manila. He says they're no longer close, even though they're still friends. He had last heared that Mikel had joined a company and was a manager somewhere.

As they drive along, Alwyn points out their old hangout, which has now closed and has a sign "Coffee King -- soon to open" displayed prominently in front. Janus tells Alwyn that it has been purchased by the Coffee King chain. Janus jokingly says he even rallied against the purchase. He also shares that their old childhood friend Paw (Paula) was worried about the soon-to-open coffee shop, because it will be competing directly with her family's coffee shop business.

Just then, Alwyn temporarily loses control of the car when a pink bandana flies onto his windshield and blocks his vision. They pull over to the side and get out of the car to retrieve the bandana. Just then, Jill drives up in a little scooter and Alwyn is almost immediately lovestruck when he sees her.

Jill apologizes about the bandana, and attempts to retrieve it. Alwyn attempts to flirt with her by asking for her name, but Jill ignores his advances and simply retrieves her bandana. She bids Janus farewell and hops back on her scooter. Alwyn tries to interrogate Janus about Jill, but Janus evades giving definite answers by cracking a few jokes, saying he'll tell Alwyn more about her later, if Alwyn will buy Janus a cup of coffee at Paw's coffee house.


At the coffee shop, Paw is busy at the counter, and we see a newly arrived customer sitting at a table. He teases Paw, saying some miracle must have happened because she's so pretty all of a sudden. Paw is confused when the customer teases her with their old childhood taunt... but she eventually realizes that it's Mikel.

Mikel orders a cup of coffee, and Paw as Paw prepares it, Mikel remarks that he's amazed at the longevity of the shop. Paw says the store has been there since 1908, and she brags about the quality of their coffee... saying that it's unlike all the other stores which serve everything "instant".

Just then, Alwyn and Janus friends arrive at the coffee shop, with Janus announcing that he has a surprise for Paw. As they walk in, they notice Mikel there sitting at a table, waiting for his coffee. The three friends greet each other heartily, and Mikel reveals to his friends that he will be managing the soon-to-open Coffee King branch, much to Paw's dismay.

She becomes upset when Mikel says that he'll be having coffee at her coffee shop while his own store isn't open yet. When she starts berating him, Mikel reminds her that he's a paying customer and even leaves a P500 bill to pay for his single cup of coffee, telling Paw "keep the change, darling."

Janus stops Paw from hitting Mikel, and as Mikel is about to leave, Alwyn stops him in time to invite Mikel to his sister's debut the next evening. Mikel at first tries to decline, but with Janus' insistence, Mikel finally agrees.

As Alwyn is standing at the door of the coffee shop, he sees Jill riding by on her scooter. He smiles and waves at her, and Jill looks surprised as she rides past.


The following day, Janus is at the coffee shop with Paw, and Paw is still upset about Mikel coming to "spy" on their coffee shop. Two of Paw's aunts are there, and one of them wonders out loud if the curse against their family is finally coming true.

Janus remarks that they obviously believe in the curse because Paw's two aunts chose not to marry. Paw's aunt then points out to Paw that their bad luck in business began when Paw and her boyfriend TJ became a couple. Paw looks shocked and worried, but is unable to deny her aunt's remarks.


The scene shifts to what appears to be Hazel's bedroom, and Jill is there with her dressed in a pink robe. Jill excitedly admires at Hazel's debutante gown, which Hazel complains as being "masyadong pa-tweetums". Jill tries to encourage Hazel to try it out, but Hazel is disinterested; she tells Jill she can try it out if she wants. Jill removes her robe and pulls on the dress.

Just then, Alwyn walks past Hazel's open bedroom door and sees Jill putting on the dress. He leans against the doorway and says to Jill that the dress suits her. Upon hearing his voice, Hazel gets up and slams the door in his face, saying "Sorry, no boys allowed!"

Alwyn then leans against the door to listen to the girls' conversation, just as Jill asks who that guy is. Jill is surprised to learn he is Alwyn, Hazel's older brother. Jill says it's weird but she has seen him twice already today... and she's amazed to realize that he is her best friend's brother.

Outside the door, Alwyn is happy to realize that his "mystery girl" is the best friend of his sister.

Inside the room, Hazel tells Jill to stay away from Alwyn, because all boys are the same, if they're not insensitive, they're selfish... otherwise they're liars...

Jill says that if she ever gets to know the guy who turned Hazel into a manhater, she will beat him up. Hazel responds that if ever she sees the guy, she'll be the one to beat him up personally.


Back at the coffee shop, Janus is complaining to Paw about her aunts superstitious beliefs. He says that if they were not such great tippers, he would have revealed long ago that he's straight (because they apparently think he's gay). He says he will no doubt get a lot of ribbing from Alwyn and his friends if they learn about his situation.

Just then, one of Paw's aunts enters the coffee shop, and Janus switches right away to his gay mode, greeting her good morning and paying her compliments. She leaves and returns to the back room, and right away Janus returns to normal.

Just then, Carla enters the coffee shop and orders some coffee from Paw. Janus immediately sits up straight on his seat and stares at her lovestruck as she moves into the room. We learn via Alwyn's voiceover that Carla is the only daughter of Congressman Loren, and that she's also Janus' "one great childhood love".

Janus introduces himself to Carla, and he is smiling broadly as they exchange handshakes, and it takes him some time to release her hand. Just then, Paw's aunt returns to the room with Janus' cup of coffee, and Janus is forced to return to his gay mode.

The situation turns for the worse for Janus when Paw's aunt goes on to ask for Janus' opinion on her hair, asking if a perm would be good for her.

When Paw's aunt leaves the room, Carla remarks that since Janus is a beautician, she wanted to ask if he would be available that night for home service, since she will be attending Hazel's debut. Before Janus can answer, she says that he is probably fully booked.

Janus tries to grab the opportunity to tell Carla that he is not actually gay, but unfortunately, Carla cannot hear him because just then, Paw starts to grind the coffee beans that Carla has come to buy. As Paw finishes grinding the coffee beans, Paw's aunt returns to the room, and Janus is forced to return to his gay mode before he can reveal the truth to Carla.

Left with no other option, Janus tells Carla that he's actually available that night, and Carla is delighted. They agree to meet at 7pm, just as Paw finishes wrapping up the coffee beans for Carla. Carla then leaves after reminding Janus of their appointment.


Later that evening, we see a montage of scenes as Janus arrives at Carla's home and proceeds to fix her hair and apply her make-up. Carla is extremely happy with the result, and when she asks how much his services cost, Janus says he won't be charging her for his service because artistic types like himself get enough fulfillment from seeing the beautiful results of their work. He is surprised and kilig when Carla hugs him to thank him.

He begins to gather up his equipment and just before he leaves, they find themselves staring at each other. Janus breaks the stare by saying "Grabe ka tumingin" and turns away to pick up his equipment. They have another awkward moment where Janus says goodbye, holds out one arm as if to hug her, but he changes his mind, and bids her goodbye again as he leaves the room.


That night at the debut, both Carla and Janus are present, and there is a funny moment as Janus goes to greet Carla, but it turns out she was moving in his direction to greet Mikel instead.

Carla then spends the rest of the evening trying to avoid the attentions of Councilor TJ Ramos, who is interested in discussing political projects with her due to her Congressman father. Janus rescues her from TJ a few times during the party.

At the end of the evening, the four friends gather together outside the soon-to-open Coffee King, and Janus pulls out a scrapbook that he has made with photos of their childhood misadvantures. Mikel leaves for a moment and returns to toss a tire before the other three guys. He reveals that he chose to open the Coffee King branch at their old hangout, because it means a lot to him.


As the episode closes, we hear Alwyn's voiceover: Kahit malaki na tayo, para pa rin tayo naglalaro ng taguan. Pero ngayon, iba na ang mga pinagtataguan natin...

The scene shifts to Carla talking on her cellphone: Yes Dad, don't worry. Di ko kayo papahiya... as she picks up one of many file folders marked "Projects of Congressman Loren".

Alwyn's voiceover continues: ... responsibilidad, katotohanan, kalaban, o bumabalik na nakaraan. Parang taguan nga ang buhay, 'no? Pero di gaya ng iba, gustong-gusto ko maging taya nung bata pa ako. Dahil kahit gaano man katagal o kahirap kong huliin ang mga kalaro ko, ayos lang, dahil alam ko naman, na bago matapos ang araw, makikita at makikita ko rin ang hinahanap ko.

Qpids: Episode 13.0

This is the episode summary for the Week 13 episode, 5th Heartbreak Sunday.

This entry only contains scenes related to Carla and Janus.

Episode summary text courtesy of Angelica. Thank you!


The episode begins with recaps from the drama loventure that the 5 final loveteams began last week. Today, the drama loventure comes to a finale as we learn the ending of the 5 love stories.

The wedding is interrupted and eventually called off.

With the ceremony now over, Carla retrieves the walking stick for her blind teacher. He thanks her as she hands it to him, and thanks her also for coming with him to the wedding to sing. She responds that if he hadn't shouted at his other student, then she wouldn't have been there in the first place. She says also that even though her dad's not there and he's not proud of her, it's okay because at least her teacher is.

He smiles and tells her to call him "Janus" instead of "sir." She leads him out and they walk together smiling.


The 5th Heartbreak Sunday begins with a musical performance by Soapdish as the 5 final loveteams enter the studio by walking through the crowds of fans.

Luis and Anne introduce the Love Council for the 5th Heartbreak Sunday.

Direk Joey Javier Reyes -- award winning director and writer, director of romantic comedy movies such as "May Minamahal", "Narinig mo ba ang latest?" and "Can This Be Love";

Direk Jerry Lopez Sineneng -- director of movies such as "Labs Kita, Okay Lang", "Soltera", "Ngayong Nandito Ka", and teleseryes such as "Pangako Sa 'Yo", "Basta't Kasama kita", and "Hiram";

Mr. Qpido -- Direk Laurenti Dyogi

Then the love council gives their comments on each of the final 5 loveteams.

Mr. Qpido: Uh, si Jarla.. Janus, napaalala mo ang mga tao, sa mga viewers natin, na isang ka dramatic actor. At si Carla, mahusay ang partner mo, so kailanang mong tumapat ng maayos sa kanya. You have to prove to everyone na kaya ninyong maging bida, hindi lang supporting role.

The hosts then reveal the fates of the loveteams...

JaRla --
Luis reveals that they got an okay score from the love council, but they had the highest text/PLDT votes, so they go to the Red Heart.

CF's Note: The immunity bear was awarded to JilWyn. The two weakest loveteams were CarVane and PawEl. CarVane was eventually eliminated.


Luis and Anne then reveal the secret surprise that awaits the final 4 loveteams. Instead of another elimination, the final 4 loveteams will all be in the grand finals fighting for the chance to be the ultimate loveteam.

They will all star in a 5 week mini youth series before the grand finals, and this will be the big drama loventure that will be the basis for the decision on the final heartbreak night. The ultimate loveteam will win the prize of starring in a drama series.

Qpids: Episode 12.0

This is a summary of the Qpids Episode from Week 12.

CF's Note: This entry will only contain summaries related to Carla and Janus. Additional screenshots will be slightly delayed.


At the start of the episode, we see Carla singing at a wedding ceremony with Janus sitting beside her.

Then, the scene flashes back to Janus and Carla's encounter the day before the wedding. Carla is sitting outside a music studio with a fellow student. She asks the other student who she has for a teacher, and the girl replies that she is with Mr. Vinuya. Carla responds that she has Mr. del Prado, and she heard that he was the best teacher there.

The other student agrees, but mentions that Mr. del Prado has a mean personality. Carla replies that she doesn't care, as long as he can make her voice sound beautiful, so that she can prove her father wrong.

She clutches a piece of paper and the student asks her what it is, and Carla replies that it's her favorite song. Just then, Mr. del Prado appears at a doorway, wearing sunglasses, and he yells at a departing student that she should be practicing more because she's supposed to be singing for a wedding, not a wake! He then yells for his next student, Miss Carla Loren. Carla gets up and bids her fellow student goodbye as she goes in for her lesson. Another teacher comes out just then with a guitar for the other student.

Carla enters Mr. del Prado's studio, and remarks that it is an honor to be working with him. She introduces herself to him, and asks if she can shake his hand, and extends her own hand out to him. He pauses, then replies that he would shake her hand, except he doesn't know where it is. Yes, I'm blind, he says, as Carla belatedly realizes her mistake. He tells her to save the drama for an episode of 'Maalala Mo Kaya'. They're not here for drama, but to make music.

He says since it's their first meeting, he wants to hear her voice, so he directs her to sing any song. Carla nervously walks to one side of the room, and pulls out the piece of paper that she was holding. She quickly unfolds it and walks back to his side of the room and begins to sing, "When You Find Your Voice." At first she is a bit nervous, but after some time, she gains confidence and starts singing beautifully.

After a few lines, Mr. del Prado slaps the table and Carla suddenly stops. She nervously apologizes and asks if she sounded bad, just as he gets up from his chair. She asks him what's wrong and he tells Carla that he's not feeling well, and that she should come back later. Carla replies that she'll come back after lunch, and worriedly leaves the studio.

After she leaves, Janus uses his walking stick to find his way around the room, then sits on a chair. He takes off his sunglasses, and we see tears rolling down his face.

Later that day, Carla is eating lunch with a fellow student when Mr. del Prado walks up from behind, calling her name. She gets up too quickly, and accidentally bumps into him, spilling her food on his shirt. She nervously tries to wipe the food off, and he stops her by grabbing hold of her wrist. He tells her that it's okay; he'll just change his shirt.

He scolds her for being clumsy because all he wanted to say was she can go inside the studio after lunch. There is a pause as they both realize that he's still holding her wrist, and he quickly releases his hold when she pulls her hand away.

Carla heads into the studio as he goes to change his clothes. Sitting by herself, Carla begins to sing "When You Find Your Voice" again, but she has difficulty with a particularly high note and gets frustrated. She yells at herself, saying that her voice is worth nothing and that her father was right all along.

Just then, Mr. del Prado walks in, and says to her that her father must be deaf. She apologizes, and he asks her why she stopped singing, because she has a beautiful voice. She apologizes again, and he asks her why she's always apologizing.

After a little hesitation, she replies that when he yells at her it reminds her of her father. He is always berating her for wanting to pursue music when he thinks she should be studying law or medicine like her siblings. And so, she is always apologizing.

Mr. del Prado tells her that she shouldn't apologize for what she wants; how can she make her dad believe that she was meant to do this if she can't have faith in her own abilities.

He then asks her why she chose to sing, "When You Find Your Voice." She replies that it's because it's a song about finding her strength, her strength to tell her dad that singing is what she really wants. Mr. del Prado slowly reveals that his former girlfriend, Abby, had composed that song and dedicated it to him because he was always afraid to face his problems.

Carla responds that Abby must be really proud that her song is now so popular. He replies that she would have been, except that she could never know, because she's dead. His tears begin to fall as he reveals that he had lost his sight in the car accident that claimed Abby's life.

Ever since the accident, he has been angry at the world. Carla responds that he shouldn't be like that, and that Abby would have wanted him to be happy. He further reveals that he and Abby had been planning to get married this year. Carla reaches out and takes his hand as he continues to cry.


The episode ends with scenes from next week's episode, where we will learn how JaRla's love story will end.
