Lorna (Sunshine Dizon/Nadine Samonte with her original name Danica) has always been the bread winner of her almost parasitic family. She already sacrificed even the education she deserves and the man that she loves. She fought for the new man in her life named Lando (Marvin Agustin), even if it means getting the ire of her mother and leaving their house. She thought he could save her from the kind of life she has, little does she know the new house she will live in has more twisted secrets inside. Lorna will try to figure out the mystery between her husband and her step-mother in-law and Ex Girlfriend Trixie and Rita (Ara Mina/Sheryl Cruz), her only key is her crazy sister in law, Corazon (or Moret) (Michelle Madrigal). The revelation will only bring her more thorns in her heart. Lorna is having a baby girl because Dr. Ramirez (Marco Alcaraz) reveals that she is pregnant. Lorna and Lando have a birthday party for her daughter at the end of episode, even Rita and Moret or Corazon are gone except Boyito (Miguel Tanfelix) who is joining with the other kids.
