How is Sheila progressing as a person?

Greta suggests a new name for the company too. Sheila agrees with the name: Strength in Numbers. It’s a subtle scene, reintroducing these old friends to one another after a bitter rivalry.

Meanwhile, Danny breaks up with Fidelia. Unsurprisingly, Fidelia isn’t that fussed. She talks about how Sheila’s company is growing, and she’s relieved that she won’t get fired now that their secret relationship is over.

Danny is intrigued by the news of Sheila’s company expansion, but Fidelia won’t divulge any of their future plans.

What happens when Danny gets drunk?

Danny wasn’t expecting this reaction. To make matters worse, Debbie is off on a hot date. Danny decides to get drunk alone. In his drunken state, he takes Maya on a car ride and nearly crashes. He tells Maya to keep this accident a secret from her mother. Maya looks petrified.

This car accident has an adverse effect on Maya, who pretends to be a mouse and refuses to speak afterward, taking Danny’s words to heart. When she’s returned to Sheila, the mother is concerned about her sudden change in attitude. Danny denies any wrongdoing.

Later, Danny confesses to his sister, Debbie, about the car accident. He breaks down in tears, apologizing for messing his daughter up so badly.

Debbie comforts Danny, but he can’t help but blame her for the incident, stating that if she hadn’t gone out on a date, it might not have happened.

Why does Debbie leave Danny?

This low blow upsets Debbie, who refuses to be held accountable. She decides to leave, admitting that her involvement in parenting duties is not actually helping matters. Danny begs Debbie to stay, but she has made the right decision. Danny needs to fend for himself now. Debbie leaves.

Out of options, Sheila pays Maria a visit, hoping that she will pass on their business plan to John. Maria is rightfully offended by Sheila’s strategy. She does, however, pass it on to John regardless.

Maria quickly figures out that John and Sheila have been meeting up again. She storms off, heartbroken and angry.

John admits that things have gotten rather complicated. He suggests that they move away to Mexico, where he has acquired a large portion of land. Maria is actually on board with this idea, and the family plans their getaway.

While Sheila’s ex-lover plans his escape, Sheila ruins her current relationship. She gets into an argument with Carlos. Sheila then confesses to having had an affair with John, and she talks about how his ambition turned her on. Carlos leaves Sheila.
