In the Teodoro Building, Teresa and Vera are anxious about the outcome of Rosemary and Beto's visit to Octavio's house. Ironically, the lobby radio plays “I'm a Believer” by Smash Mouth.
“Will Rosemary believe Patrick is the ‘beggar’?” Vera wonders.
“If she doesn’t believe it, Beto will ground her.” Teresa responds with a hard look, “She needs to wake up to life. This obsession with the ‘beggar’ isn’t normal.”
“And she swore so hard not to follow in her mother's footsteps...”
“But she didn’t just follow in the footsteps, she dove in head first!”
Teresa and Vera are startled by Patrick's bitter voice.
“Pat, we know you're upset, but—”
“Did she go there?” Patrick interrupts Vera with a glare.
Teresa responds, “Yes, Pat. She went. She needs to know the truth.”
In the Teodoro building, Teresa and Vera watch a broken Rosemary running in tears, her forearm hiding her face, too vexed to face anyone. The door to their apartment slams shut.“She accepted?” Tess asks her husband.“Yes, my dear. Finally, she accepted.” Beto takes a deep breath.“Bro, I’m afraid I gotta tell you some bad news.” Vera takes the floor.“More bad news?” Beto laughs, “I better double my medication.”Teresa takes this literally and runs to the counter drawer to get the pills, “I’m coming, honey.”“No, Tess, I was kidding.” Beto laughs, “Anyway, Vera, tell me what’s going on?”“Patrick has come down here in a rage, stating that he wants to break up with Rosemary regardless of the outcome,” Vera reports it.Beto gets serious, “Hey, if Rosemary insisted on accepting Thierry, I would even
At the Rocha Mansion, Josias is informed by Tiago about the success of the mission.“Master, young Lafayette finally acknowledged his sins and confessed the whole truth to Rosemary.”“Poor Rosemary.” Josias sighs as he leans back in the upholstered armchair in the living room, “How did she react?”“According to Octavio, she left in disgust, recognizing that she had been tricked.”Josias nods, “She’ll get over that one. After all, she still has a boyfriend to comfort her.”Hector appears, “Mr. Rocha, Mr. Reis is here.”“Tell him to come in.” Josias is anxious to see Beto again.After a few seconds, Beto enters the living room, “Good evening, Josias. Oh, Tiago, you are here.”“I am reporting what happened at Octavio's house, narrating it from the perpetrator's point of view.” Tiago states, “Now you can narrate y
Rosemary manages to shock everyone by announcing that she wants to move back to Victoria during breakfast time.Beto scratches his ear, “I think I misheard.”“No, Father, you understood me very well.” Rosemary states in a more audible tone, “I want to leave this town where all I have left is pain, embarrassment, and suffering.”“What about your family?” Pedro gets indignant, “Do we mean nothing to you anymore?”“Pete, take it easy,” Tess advises him.“It's not that.” Rosemary looks up, “Living in the same town and walking past that supermarket will be too much for me.”“Me, me, me…” Pedro noisily sets the cup down on the saucer, “You're being very selfish, little sister! What about us? What about Patrick?”Rosemary faces Beto. The father does not answer.“I have a feeling that I don't have a boyfr
In the Teodoro building, Teresa is talking to Wallace and Vera about what is going on at their home.Vera is already reacting nonconformist, “Back to Victoria? And run the risk of meeting Pamela and being defiled?”“Thus, her whoredom is completed,” Wallace comments.“No, we cannot allow that.” Teresa shakes her head, “While Rosemary was in Victoria, living with Grandpa Ray, she never had contact with her mother. And Pamela is living with her current husband, so the chances of contact will be slim.”“But if she plots…” Vera asks fearfully, “I remember very well how treacherous that damned woman was.”“Calm down guys, let’s hope Josias—”Carmen walks into the lobby, “Do you guys have a problem? You're whispering around...”The radio starts playing, “Overprotected” by Britney Spears.Teresa and Vera look
Rosemary was locked in her room listening to Spiller's song “Groovejet (If This Ain't Love)”, on high to prevent anyone from disturbing her. She was sitting on the bed with her feet up on the mattress, hugging her knees, and letting the tears cascade down her face.A suitcase started to be filled, but she couldn't finish it. The reason was that she had opened a drawer and found a picture of her and Patrick in Crystal Blue.“I beg your pardon, Pat… but how can I be your wife if I am and will always be in love with my dear beggar… John… why did you have to be a lie?”The door is pounded, “Rosemary, turn that volume down! Do you want to go deaf?”She screams, “YES! I want to go deaf so I never hear any lies again!”“Rosemary, my daughter, please, open the door.”Rosemary has a start. It wasn't Beto's voice, but Josias's.She turns the volume down, wipes away
Patrick came home from school and didn't feel like preparing lunch. So he decided to take advantage and eat the lunch offered in the canteen.But when he walked in, he noticed countless tenants applauding Rosemary, who was in their midst, excited and smiling. The radio was playing the song “Gone” by 'N Sync.Rosemary and Patrick's eyes meet right over the violin part.Before either of them could say anything, Beto climbed onto a desk and, with a glass of acerola juice, he called out, “Guys, I know this is a sad moment, but I don't feel like crying.” Laughter from the others, “So, I want to say goodbye to my daughter with joy. Rosemary will be greatly missed, but we believe she will return matured and strengthened, overcome by the tragedy!”Everyone cheers and claps, except Patrick.Wallace appeared as if by magic, “That's right, Pat.”“That’s right WHAT?” Patrick is startled.<
The wedding of João Paulo and Gabriela arrived.Well, at least for a lot of people, it didn't, because they were completely unaware of the event.In the apartment, the door opens, and Gabriela and João Paulo enter carrying Sandra in their arms (always him, never her). Gabriela opens her canvas bag and takes out a manila envelope.“HERE! Our marriage certificate! We are married, dear João Paulo, now I’m officially your wife.”João Paulo sits on the sofa, lulling Sandra, “Are you sure you want this, Gabi?”“Yes, dear.” Gabriela gives him a sardonic look, “Since your older brother didn't want to spend the money to pay for a decent ceremony for our reception, and since we couldn't get a date at Green Park Church, then, we have no choice but to celebrate for own account!”“You wanted a sumptuous wedding.” João Paulo analyzes her.“Wha
Gabriela's apartment was full.Josias gestures, “Guys, watch out, the baby girl is sleeping.”Vernon returns from the kitchen, “They have a good white wine, Josias. But how about we use our bottle?”Elza hurries, “I'll get the glasses ready!”“I don't know if there will be enough for everyone—” Gabriela tries to warn, but Elza has already gone to the kitchen.João Paulo turns to Josias, “Brother, you didn't seem willing to celebrate my union. What made you change your mind?”“Tiago found out you hadn’t gotten a Church date,” Josias responds with a smile.“Ah, you sent your ‘servant’ to investigate me, huh?” João Paulo starts laughing, “So you cared!”Gabriela has mixed feelings when she sees the Rocha brothers getting along.She wanted to be married to the eldest... Katherine died in vain!
