Katherine is ushered into the police station as if she were a suspect in murder or money laundering. Some photographers who were covering other news noticed her and photographed her. An LCN reporter got excited and ran to the van where the rest of the team was.“Someone please call Vernon Queiroz! It's urgent, Mrs. Rocha has just been arrested!”Amoreira watched Katherine walk serenely through the corridors behind a mute Ivan.“Moraes, what is going on here? Why didn't you ask these photographers not to take pictures of Mrs. Rocha?”“I can't stop the press from speaking out,” Ivan responds ironically.“Yes, you may, unless Mrs. Rocha has been formally charged with a crime!” Amoreira defends her.“Don’t interfere with my investigation, Amoreira!” Instead of pushing the photographers, Ivan pushes the detective, “This way, Mrs. Rocha.”Katherine decides to keep quiet. After all, anything she says now could be used against her in court.When they are closed in the sergeant's office, Ivan
At Rocha Hotel, Vernon is red and almost having a heart attack when talking to his co-workers. Vernon was one of the few Lagoon City citizens to use a cell phone, “Listen here, you morons: Don't do bad press with my son's wife! I know he is not my legitimate son, but believe me when I say that you are not ready to face the wrath of Josias Rocha! If you want to report something, talk about how Mrs. Rocha was shamefully and unfairly misled, without the prerogatives of the legal process, do you hear me?”He ends the call by nearly dunking the button on his Motorola device. Elsa is worried.“Careful, dear. This cell phone cost a lot of money.”“But I could afford it, and I suggest you buy one for yourself.” Vernon smiles slightly, “They're all buying.”“OK, but with this news I heard on the radio, I'm not even in the mood to buy a pair of shoes.” Elza crosses her fingers, “Why did they take our darling daughter-in-law? I'm so busy with the hotel that I don't have time for anything else.”
At Crystal Blue, Daryl is presenting Diane with a cell phone. There were two boxes on top of the bar counter.Diane is delighted with the gift, “Oh, my love! Everyone is buying this stuff to communicate remotely.”“Everybody who has money, you mean.” Daryl jokingly states, “That device cost me a kidney, imagine buying two.”“Well, what's the use of just one of us having a mobile phone?” Diane shrugs and picks up the instruction manual to see how to handle it without breaking it on the first day.“You're right.” Daryl gives a light kiss on the cheek and also takes the manual for his device.Maggie nervously enters the restaurant, “Hello everyone! Can you tell me if Kate has left the police station safe and sound? Many commented that they saw Miguel Damascene’s car going at full speed to the police station.”Daryl and Diane stare at Maggie, “I don't understand. What happened to Kate?” Daryl asked.“She was taken by Sergeant Moraes to the police station to discuss the loan shark’s death.
Vera returns from the psychiatrist with renewed spirits. Teresa is listening to the radio.“And the information we have is that Mrs. Katherine Rocha left the police station flanked by Josias Rocha. The two refused to speak to the press. Ironically, Mrs. Rocha is responsible for Public Relations at Rocha Constructions, so we couldn't get any explanation. The Lagoon City Police Station also didn’t respond and asked reporters to leave. Now continue with our normal schedule.”The radio started playing “Quit Playing Games (With My Heart),” but Teresa and Vera weren't thrilled with the Backstreet Boys.“How absurd is all this, sister-in-law!” Vera slams her purse on the counter, “Will Josias Rocha ever find peace?”"I'm glad it's Katherine and not Melissa." Teresa opines, “Can you imagine a lady who gave birth to twins facing such a challenge?”Vera opens her purse and searches for a piece of paper, “I got the number of a male psychiatrist to help my Wally.”“Hope it all works out, my frien
The following week, the cover of Maggiezine was on another subject, but there was a lead for an inside article about Katherine's questioning at the police station. Readers went to the indicated page and revolted about the situation.As a result, countless citizens flooded police stations with letters of protest. At City Hall, the secretaries had their ears swollen from receiving so many curses and swear words.Tobias is in front of the Chief of the Police Station, a white-haired gentleman with a face expressing more than thirty years dedicated to the profession of serving and protecting.“Mayor...”“Chief Kleberg, you need to control that sergeant of yours, Ivan Moraes.” Tobias extends the Maggiezine open to the article page. A huge photo of Katherine being led away made the Chief blush, “This can't be repeated. An investigation has become a media circus and my constituents are blaming me.”“It's definitely not your fault, mayor.” Chief Kleberg clears his throat nervously.“Good thing
Jack and Octavio are clearing their throats and looking in every direction but their father's face. The shame is too much.Ronaldo seems to enjoy the children's embarrassment, "Come on, it's not such a difficult question."“Father, you are in a great hurry,” Octavio responds with nervous chuckles.“I'm not. It’s my life that is passing by.” Ronaldo says, “Maybe I won't have time to hug my grandchildren, but just knowing that you will have them is already a comfort for me.”“For that, it's better for us to get married before.” Jack jokingly states.“And what are you waiting for?” Ronaldo is excited like a child, “You've been just stalling since 1996. Later, your ladies will be the next to press you. No woman likes to be lied to.”Octavio states, “Dad, I need to get to know Jane even more.”“What else is there to know?” Ronaldo asserts, “Jane is beautiful, a good girl, decent, respectful, hardworking, responsible, dedicated... she’ll be the perfect mother of your children.”Octavio thro
At the police station, Chief Kleberg goes to Ivan's office to end his dream. The sergeant is disheveled, with dark circles under his eyes, clothes reeking of sweat, and an exclusive coffee pot on his desk. Ivan typed on the computer like a sleepwalker.“Ivan, stop right now with what you’re doing!” The Chief orders him, “For your mental and physical health!”Ivan stops typing and looks at his superior with a glassy gaze, “What does the Chief want?”Kleberg closes the door, “I received instructions from Mayor Tobias. You should stop this loan shark case immediately and focus on recent crimes. I won’t give you any promotion if you put Josias Rocha behind bars.”“It's not about getting promoted anymore, chief.” Ivan responds without emotion, “It's a matter of honor. I lost my wife to the cover of a biography and Josias Rocha will pay for it!”Kleberg would normally laugh at this, but he holds back from driving his underling to suicide, “I'm serious when I say you need to protect your men
At Rocha Constructions, Josias wants to know from Tiago what he suggests to end the problems.But Tiago keeps silent, hoping to make the others understand.Katherine's face is shaking and her voice cracks, “No, Tiago, NO! Don't tell me you want another corpse!”“What are you talking about?” Josias asks, not sure he wants to know the answer.Tiago remains impassive, “Unfortunately, another death will be needed for us to finally have peace of mind.”“I DISAGREE!” Josias punches the desk, “Tiago, you're crazy! If someone dies, then indeed, we will be suspect # 01! I don't want to, I won't repeat the nightmare!”Tiago smiles macabrely, “Master, you don't need to stain your hands with blood. That's why your loyal servants are here. Igor is in the capital, but he still owes you loyalty.”Josias is wiggling frantically, “No, no, Tiago, that won't be necessary. Ivan—”“But we are talking about the same Ivan.” Tiago complete.“NO!” Josias is firm, “If Ivan Moraes dies, other people will suspec
