In their secret hideout, she looks at the test results. Suddenly, Diogo shows up, surprising her. “Have you been following me for a while?” she asks, disturbed. “I came here to clear my head. I didn’t know you were here”, he says. Beatriz gets up to leave but Diogo stops her, pointing to the letters carved in the wood. “We promised that we would be friends forever”, he reminds her. “I promised that to Rodrigo, not to you. Friends don’t lie nor betray each other”, she berates. “I swear I regret not doing things differently, but there’s no turning back”, Diogo bemoans. The argument gets heated. “I feel so stupid… I told you countless times that I would like to see you, I spoke of missing you, our fun times, our sad ones, I cried in your arms… and I never saw you get emotional about it.” With a touch of irony, she accuses him: “You were an excellent actor and therapist. You should get medals for that too”. Diogo looks down, ashamed. “You can stop pretending and keep this place. It’s yours. And I will never come back”, she shouts. “This place is ours. It belongs to our history”, he shouts back. Having decided to hide she is pregnant with his child, she lets him know: “I came to say goodbye to the past, Diogo. Goodbye.”
