Cleo tells Fernando and Miranda that she is terrified of Heitor. She claims she went through hell as it’s Heitor’s nature to test “products” before purchasing them. However, Cleo is hesitant to report Heitor to the police. She claims he might kill her. Contrary, Miranda has not yet found anything to implicate Heitor. So she wonders if Victoria and Cleo are behind a conspiracy to ruin Heitor.
It’s November 15 and Miranda feels she has entangled herself in people’s lives forgetting she has her life too.

He takes her to the beach house he used to visit as a kid. At the beach, Miranda lets her guard down and sleeps with Heitor. She questions whether she can trust Heitor. Heitor tells her about how controlling his mom was. She used love as an excuse to get her way with him and when it failed she committed suicide in front of him. Heitor confesses he has never felt love again and to him, love feels like a weapon.
Miranda asks him if he killed Diana and he gets offended that she still doesn’t trust him. Miranda tells him that she doesn’t believe Fernando. She reveals to Heitor she found nothing when she investigated him. Heitor gets angrier to learn that she has been investigating him and asks for them to go back to the city.
