At the police station to report the near hit-and-run, Victoria learns that Vera’s latest collection is really Gelai’s. She uses this to blackmail Vera into turning over the FDGP presidency. Vera stands her ground and instead offers Gelai a job at Vera Couture to cover up the theft. Gelai refuses Vera’s deal.
Meanwhile, Victoria invites Gelai to an FDGP event to introduce her to the country’s top fashion designers. As she is to bring her designs, Gelai goes to Vera Couture to retrieve them. Manuel kindly gives them back and a grateful Gelai promises not to stir up any trouble.
At the party, Victoria puts Gelai on the spot by asking her to recount to everyone how Vera stole her designs. Would Gelai go back on her word to Manuel to oblige Victoria?
