A band member has an opportunity
One of the band members, Pete, needs to leave the band after securing a record deal with the label. Abraham gives Pete his approval and tells him that “everybody wins”. Abraham seems to understand the meaning of success and acts unselfishly.
A date for Suzette
Bill calls Abraham and asks permission to take his daughter Suzette out. Abraham gives permission, and he appreciates the call. He thinks he’s a good man. Selena is so excited for her sister, but you can tell it is impacting her because she isn’t allowed to pursue her romance with Chris openly.
Marcella asks Abraham about the fight at the performance, and she’s worried about Selena’s safety. Abraham plays it down to a fan being starstruck, but Marcella reminds him that their daughter is becoming very famous, and she wants her to be safe. Later on, due to the increase of fans, the family need to recruit a person to manage the fan base and network.
Are we breaking up?
During a performance, Selena brings a man on stage, and it’s a raunchy act. Chris is clearly jealous despite it only being part of the show. Later, Chris asks her if she is breaking up with him. Selena tells him that he’s the only thing she thinks about. Chris tells her he doesn’t need protection. After another performance, Chris tells Selena that he loves her. As “Que Creias” draws closer to the end, it’s evident that Chris and Selena are struggling with their feelings.
Frustration and a new song
Pete tells AB that he’s leaving the band but AB storms out. He’s furious. As he walks out, AB sees Chris holding Selena’s hand, and in the heat of the moment, he confronts her. He starts shouting and purposefully upsets her. The next day, AB finds inspiration for a new song about a flower — it’s been stuck inside his head for five years.
Selena and Chris get foolish on the coach, and Abraham sees. Abraham stops the coach and fires Chris. Selena tries telling her father that they are in love, but he is so angry and tells her to get on the coach — this is a moment of heat from Abraham who believes they are about to jeopardize everything they have worked for. On the coach, AB is angry as he has to find a replacement. Selena tells her father that he never liked Chris, and he tells her he knows Chris is “a type”. As the coach leaves Chris behind, Selena is heartbroken.
