In the episode aired last Friday, father and son had a confrontation after Rafa discovered the connivance of Jaime and Marga (Bianca King). The heated argument led to Rafa asking his father why he didn’t love him back. But instead of giving a reply, Jaime answered the question with a bullet to Rafa’s chest.

Tears flowed on Rafa’s face as he slowly died in his father’s arms.
