Diego talks to some random thug and asks for a bomb that is strong enough to destroy a hospital room. But, there is a catch – it has to appear like an accident.

Julia and Ringo play the video for Padilla who tells them that with the video, Diego has no way out. While we fervently hope that is the case, we suspect Diego will elude the snake pit for a while longer.
Ringo wonders who could have sent Julia the video. Padilla assumes it was someone who Diego betrayed…one of his accomplices who wanted revenge. Julia thinks it had to be someone who knows her because they knew her cell phone number. When Padilla asks if the suspect anyone, Ringo mentions Bruno.
Padilla thinks that Diego and Bruno must have had a falling out. When Alejo asks if Diego could have known about the video, Padilla has no idea, but it is clear that the video was sent so that it could be used against Diego. Julia calls the brewery and asks for Diego. Sandra tells her that Diego left the office…and Bruno no longer works there.
She informs Julia that Bruno and Diego argued the day before but she couldn’t hear what they were saying. When Bruno left, he was very upset. After Julia ends the call, Padilla comments that if Diego doesn’t know about the video, it would be a good opportunity to set a trap for him. Julia suggests that she set up a meeting with Diego.
Padilla agrees that he can set up the team; he asks Julia to call Diego and set up a meeting in an hour. Julia calls Diego with the excuse that she needs money to pay for Brenda’s hospital bill…she will meet him at a restaurant near the hospital.
One hour later, Julia who is wired, waits at the restaurant. Padilla informs he that Diego has just arrived and advises her to remain calm. When Julia see Diego, she struggles to maintain a straight face, but she forces herself to thank him for coming. Diego tells her that she doesn’t look well; so, Julia responds that she can’t put up with much more…now she has Brenda to worry about.
Padilla listens as Julia tells Diego that the cops have determined that Brenda was mugged. She then tells him that she is no longer going to fight for the presidency; she will support him so that he can run the company.
After Diego assures her that he will take care of the hospital bill, Julia can’t contain her anger, grits her teeth and states, “One more thing, tell me why you did it.” She shows him the video, and yells, “You killed my father, murderer!!” Padilla orders all his men to take action. When Diego sees them, he grabs Julia and tells them not to come close or he will call her.
Padilla runs in and tells Diego to lower his gun, he has nowhere to run! After Diego retorts that he will kill Julia, Padilla and his men drop their guns; so, Diego inches his way out the door dragging Julia with him. Little does he know that Ringo and Alejo are waiting. Ringo grabs the gun and tosses it as Alejo grabs Julia while Ringo throws Diego to the ground and starts pummeling him.

After Ringo tells Teresa about Diego being captured, Ringo gets a call from Gloria’s attorney who advises him that Gloria has been detained for drug trafficking. Ringo is in disbelief; he thinks there must be a mistake.
When he wonders what he should tell Santi when he gets home, Teresa thinks he should tell him the truth so he can know exactly what kind of person his mother is, but Ringo doesn’t like that idea. Ringo then calls Alejo to come to meet him at the club. Beam him up, Scottie!
Alejo is beamed over to the club as is Ringo. Ringo explains about the attorney calling him. Alejo knows that drug trafficking is not taking lightly in the USA; so, he suggests that they call the attorney.
