Dede silently decides to leave Jaimito. She is about to ask the priest for advice, but when she realizes that Padre de Jesus is "one of them," she becomes afraid he will convince her to join the revolution, so she flees. Jaimito has left her with his sons, but Manolo convinces Dede Jaimito and  to reconcile and take a vacation together.
