Germán can wait.
Mariana, I'm not leaving

[Natalia screaming] Julia!
- [Gloria] How is she? How is she?
- What the fuck have you done, Mom?

- I don't know. I don't know.
Sorry, forgive me.
[whimpers] I don't know. I don't know.

Germán, he told me where they were going.
- Yes! I'll go find Fernando before he
- What's your amazing plan now?
We have what he loves the most, Abel!
He would do anything for his daughter,
like I would for you.
[Natalia banging] Open the door!

If you break my heart again? ♪
Who will give me her emotions? ♪
Who will ask me never to leave her? ♪
Who will cover me tonight
If it's cold ♪
[Santi in English] Give me some room here!
Are you crazy? What the fuck?
[in Spanish]
Who will fill this January with springs?
And bring down the moon ♪
[in English] No more beer for this guy!
He's so out of tune, he's hurting my ears!
Santi, we've known each other
since we were 15, name the kid after me!
I'm not gonna name my fucking kid
after you, bro, his name is Nico!
Nicolás. I chose it and I like it.
- I like it.
- Come on, Nico's a damn ugly name.
- [Santi] This guy! Nah.
- Dude, it is! Someone had to tell you!
- "Nicolás"!
- "Rafael"? You want me to call him Rafael?
[laughing] No way! So he gets
the same nickname you used to have?
- Raffi? Crappy Raffi?
- [all laughing]
[Rafael] That's what I'm saying,
you owe it to me.
You owe me! You know why?
Because you treated me like shit.
- No way! Come on! Don't cry!
- Yeah, yeah. You know I'm right.
- Let's flip on it. Get a coin. Come on.
- [laughing] No.
- [all chanting] Flip a coin! Flip a coin!
- Hey, I said no! I said no! Hey, no!
- [Rafael] Let's do it. Come on.
- [Santi] Shit, okay.
- Okay, let's do it. What do you choose?
- Heads.
[Santi] Heads. Heads.
- [all exclaiming]
- [Santi] Take that, Crappy Raffi!
Heads! My son's name is Nico!
Nicolás Santos!
And no one can change that, bro!
- [laughing] All right!
- [all] Cheers!
Hey, who's buying another round?
The new dad should!
No, no, no,
the walking open bar is leaving.
- I'm sorry. I really am.
- [Rafael] Come on! The last one!
No, bro, I gotta go. No, no, no.
You're not gonna drink for free anymore.
- [friend] Come on!
- Okay, you bastards.
- You're all a bunch of parasites.
- [all cheering]
- Another round, guys!
- [friend] Cheers!
[music playing faintly on stereo]
[tires screeching]
[priest] That wasn't
just an ordinary night.
Mary was looking for answers in the stars.
Through the dark realm of the night sky,
a night of wonders
that would amaze the angels.
And Mary agreed to give birth
to a child that would not be hers.
And God had preordained the life
that he was to live.
For Jesus, a pure and innocent soul,
had come to save humanity
through his suffering.
We always talk about what it means
to be a mother or a father.
But today I encourage you to think about
[Aitana whimpers]
[priest] what it means to be a child.
They are a gift to us from the heavens.
Because, like Jesus,
they come to bring us light and faith.
They come to change
everything for their families.
Even when their families are broken.
- Mariana?
- [mysterious music playing]
Mariana! Mariana!
Mariana! Mariana!
Mariana, wake up! Hey, hey, hey!
[priest] Never abandon them to their fate
[phone ringing]
[priest]as you
would never abandon Jesus.
- [ringing continues]
- [priest] In them, you will find his way.
- You may stand.
- [Gloria mutters]
[Abel on phone] Mom, Mariana's
not doing well. Come back now! Fuck!
[priest] Turning your back on them
is like turning your back on God.
Going into the darkness,
you will fall into the deep pit
of eternal damnation.
- This is the word of God. Let us pray.
- [congregation] Glory to you, O Lord.
I didn't want to hurt you.
- [Aitana] But you did.
- [sighs]
- Don't hurt Natalia.
- [door opens]
- [sighs]
- Put an end to all this, Gloria.
[door closing]
How is she?
She's okay. The antibiotic's upstairs.
She'll be fine. She'll be fine.
She'll be fine.
This was your amazing plan, huh?
Now what?
- I think it's about time we leave.
- And go where? Damn it.
Without Germán and Caterina?
Nobody knows who we are here!
What are you talking about?
What about Fernando and Lorenzo?
They both saw everything, God damn it!
Lorenzo is a child. He won't say a word.
And Fernando
[sighs] I'm gonna find Fernando.
What? What, damn it? What?
Do you want me to stay down there
with that lunatic, huh? In the basement?
No, forget the basement.
From now on, you're gonna be my nephew.
[Gloria] Yeah, it'll be fine.
- [Abel] It's not gonna be fine, Mom.
- Where are you going?
I'm gonna go see Germán. He's the only one
who's done something for this family.
Abel, let's wait till I find Fernando.
It's dangerous now.
Just run away with Hugo
if you love him that much.
No one is breaking this family up.
No one! Understand?
- Not even us, for fuck's sake!
- [laughs]
[door opens]
- [door closes]
- [sighs]
[phone ringing]
I've been waiting,
but nobody showed up yet.
[man] Mr. Alberche
don't wait for them,
nobody's gonna show up.
Why, God damn it? What's going on?
They had an accident.
- Shit. And what do I do now?
- [man] Don't worry.
I'll make a few calls,
and I'll get back to you in a bit.
Someone will be on the case
before you even notice it.
Yes, you'd better, because
you're wasting my time now, you know?
We do need your help with it, though.
Don't you know
that I'm the one who's paying?
Did you forget that?
It's in everyone's interest.
She just cannot be brought to justice.
You have to
get her out of wherever she is
[line disconnects]
What are you gonna do to me?
Call your father.
I don't know his number.
Even if I did, I wouldn't tell you.
It's the only way
for you to get out of here.
- It's the best thing to do.
- [scoffs]
That is not the best.
I need to see Nico.
Please, Julia, let me go and see him.
That's not gonna happen. Call your father.
Then forget about my father.
[tense music playing]
I don't know how Santi came from you.
Just like Hugo.
Full of life.
The life that I gave him!
[both grunting]
[Gloria] Stop it!
- [Natalia biting]
- [slapping]
Don't move!
Okay, that's great.
You don't want to call your father?
Let's take a picture of you then.
[shutter flashing]
[baby crying]
Hey, babe, let me give it a try too.
- Don't worry. I think she's better now.
- [baby cooing]
It's as if she could sense something.
- This whole thing is just crazy.
- Shh
We should tell someone
that we have her with us.
Tell who? Should I put her to bed?
Didn't Caterina
give you a number we could call?
In case of an emergency or whatever?
Just the bag with Ana's things.
- [baby cooing]
- [man] Shh. [clicks tongue]
- Probably her house's, right?
- Come on, let's go.
Sweetie, it's late now. I'll go tomorrow.
I'll try to get her to sleep. Let's see.
Maybe someone calls us in the meantime.
- Let's go. Yeah. Shh. [clicks tongue]
- [baby coos]
- [PA chiming]
- [woman on PA] Dr. Gómez, please report
[nurse] Marta, do me a favor.
Tell them we're taking him to OR 2, okay?
- [Abel] Germán!
- Hey, excuse me, you can't come in.
- Please wait outside. You can trust me.
- I'm a relative. But, wait, Germán!
[nurse] Let's go. He's fine, okay?
Just wait outside.
- [Abel] Where are you taking him? Germán!
- [nurse] Let's go, come on!
[woman on PA] Dr. Pérez,
please report to the neonatal unit.
[sighs] What should I do with Natalia?
I don't know what to do,
you have to help me.
Did you see Germán?
I couldn't, but he's alive.
Well, you need to go and ask him.
He's the only one
who can help us find Fernando.
- I don't know if I'll be able to.
- Well, you're gonna have to try.
Because I did all of this for you, son.
All of it.
[sighs] And I don't know what else to do.
We don't have anything left.
Take this to your sister.
I'm sure she prefers to see you.
Come here. There.
[Gloria laughs]
You're up early, huh?
No, actually, I haven't slept at all.
They crashed into each other.
What are they odds?
[sighs] It doesn't make any sense.
But, really, stop thinking about it.
Oh, I can't.
What if it wasn't a coincidence, huh?
Germán cheated on Caterina
with another man. I saw it.
Blanca, for God's sake.
People don't do such things.
What things?
Well, this, what you're talking about,
it's just crazy.
Why would Germán want to hurt himself?
That doesn't make any sense.
Yeah. It's crazy.
Besides, they had already reconciled.
I mean, according to Caterina.
But if you think about it, one only knows
what happens in their own house.
I want a divorce, Ramón.
What the fuck are you talking about?
Are you surprised?
What should actually surprise you
is that we are still together, you know.
[somber music playing]
Inspector, tell the person who's
coming here to reach me on this number.
And they have to be absolutely reliable,
got it?
I'm sending you the best.
You know I only work with professionals.
[laughing] Don't bullshit me,
I'm not buying this bullshit
of everyone crashing like that.
No, this whole thing smells
more like betrayal than anything else.
Sure, coincidences exist. This isn't one.
- [Commissioner] Are you sure it's her?
- Yes, it's her.
- Stay on the line. Excuse me, sir.
- Mm-hm.
- Place this in her hand, please. Thanks.
- Sure.
- [monitor beeping]
- [somber music continues]
Commissioner, I want you
to finish this job now.
I'll give you the address
where you can find Germán.
- And I'll send you someone this evening.
- No, you don't understand.
Now as in right now.
This is not Melilla.
I don't have time for this.
- I'll deal with her.
- And where will you take her?
Far from the police, obviously.
I know how to do my part.
Mr. Alberche,
let Caterina be presumed dead.
Edurne deserves another chance.
[monitor beeping]
- [Gloria] Blanca!
- Gloria!
- It's terrible.
- [Gloria] Yeah.
I was about to go by your house now.
Oh God. Have you heard?
Caterina didn't make it, I'm afraid.
- I know.
- We're going to, uh, do a little memorial.
[exhales sharply] What a tragedy.
And how are you?
Well, you can imagine. Just like everyone.
This is just
It's like a nightmare, you know?
How are you?
- Are you okay?
- Oh, but my love, what's the matter?
It's Gloria. The one who buys you sweets.
[Gloria] One of these days
I'll make you a chocolate cake again.
Like the ones you like.
Oh, forgive me. Abel. He's my nephew.
He's here to study. He just got to Madrid.
Say hi, honey. Say hi.
- I'm Blanca. Nice to meet you.
- Nice to meet you.
What's up, dude?
So did you really just get here?
You look very familiar.
Oh, maybe you saw me
skating around here before.
I was here last night.
Sure. He was skating.
[pensive music playing]
[peacock squawking]
- Auntie.
- What?
- Look, it's a peacock.
- Huh?
[Gloria] Oh, look. It's true.
Well, get it out of there
or it'll be chaos.
- [Abel] Come on.
- Well, Blanca see you soon.
Sure. See you.
- [Gloria] Bye, Lorenzo.
- [Abel] Come on!
- [peacock squawks]
- [Gloria] Get it out. Get it out.
[Blanca] Are you scared of peacocks?
Lorenzo, Lorenzo!
[peacock squawks]
[dissonant music playing]
I'm so glad to see you.
I'm sure you'd know what to do.
[intercom ringing]
[ringing continues]
- What?
- [Natalia on intercom] Hello? Who is this?
Mariana, please, I need to talk to you!
I can't.
[on intercom] Wait! Wait, wait, wait!
Are you alone?
Let's run away together!
Please, just open the door!
Get me out of here, please!
- [indistinct hushed chatter]
- [indistinct prayers]
- [Gloria] Hi, girls.
- Hey, Gloria, where were you?
Lost track of time.
Here you go. So you can say goodbye.
- [Gloria] Thanks.
- [hushed chatter continues]
[man] Amen.
[Blanca] Sweetie, go and play
with the duckies, okay?
This is all that's left of her.
You, uh
You try to believe it'll last forever,
and then out of the blue
a candle.
If there's anyone to light it for you,
of course.
[Alicia] I saw her yesterday.
- We were gonna grab coffee today.
- [baby fussing]
[Alicia] It's not fair.
Well, nothing's fair in this life, right?
She was special.
Although I don't think
she knew that she was special.
[baby fussing]
What will you do? With the girl.
Well, wait.
Pedro wants to drop by her house,
see if we can find
a phone number or something.
- [mysterious music playing]
- [sniffles]
Did Caterina ever mention anyone,
like her family?
I don't know, her parents?
I've always had the impression
they passed away.
This is all really weird.
We don't even know where the funeral is.
I told Ramón I want a divorce.
Holy shit, Blanca.
It's just not
going anywhere, you know? It's not.
That's more than enough
to ask for divorce, right?
Are you okay?
We'll talk about it some other time.
Today is Caterina's day, and I don't
I don't want to overshadow her memory.

[Fernando] It was my daughter's wedding.
During the ceremony,
the light from the chapel
didn't stop flickering for a second.
It was a sign.
I didn't realize it until very recently.
Lucifer had made his way
into the house of God.
[man] They live here?
Yeah, so far they do, yes.
That's what I need you to check.
You know, that they're not, uh,
going anywhere else or something.
I only want the boy, you understand?
The rest, well, you can
dispose of them real quick on my behalf.
I'll make sure to pray for them
so they end up where they belong,
you know?
You know Germán and Edurne, right, Chino?
[laughs softly] She's capable of anything.
If I had to bet on it, I'd say
she's the one who fucked it all up.
Well, here.
Look, you should always
keep this with you, okay?
I'm sure you won't
let me down with this, right?
And she won't fail you either.
[door opens]
Chino, keep an eye out.
I'll be calling you.
Sure, I'll be on the lookout.
[PA chiming]
[woman on PA] Dr. Aveda,
dial Radiology, 4-4-7.
[somber music playing]
[Fernando] Good afternoon.
[somber music continues]
- [somber music continues]
- [monitor beeping]
- [somber music continues]
- [beeping continues]
Germán. It's me, Abel.
- I'm here.
- [door opens]
[nurse] It's good that you talk to him.
I think it helps.
- With what?
- [nurse] With feeling like he's not alone.
Even in a coma,
he can hear a thing or two.
I've seen people waking up before
and say they remember a few conversations.
When is he gonna wake up?
I wish I knew, honey. Nobody knows that.
Not even himself.
[somber music continues]
- [Fernando] All right. Thank you.
- [mysterious music playing]
[mysterious music continues]
[Fernando] Merciful Lord.
The consolation and relief
of all who believe in you.
[sighs] Intercede for him.
Only you can turn this around
with your power.
Only you can save him
and free him from his pain.
[intriguing music playing]
[Fernando] Let this man live
if it is beneficial to his soul.
And give him your light
so that he may enlighten us all with it.
[intriguing music continues]
[lock clicks]
Get out of this place as soon as you can.
[music fades]
[Gloria] Aitana?
[phone ringing]
[Gloria] Hello?
- [Abel] Mom, I found Fernando.
- [Gloria on phone] Where is he?
At the World Excellent Hotel.
Great, son.
Very good. Now hurry back home.
Your sister ran away with all of our cash.
What? What are you saying?
You heard it right. Hurry back.
She shouldn't be far away.

- [muffled voice] Aitana.
[man muffled] Are you Aitana?
[music fades]
I'm Felipe, Marcos's brother.
I know who you are.
Marcos didn't tell me much about himself,
but I knew he was seeing someone.
I saw you at my dad's party.
I mean, I guess he was crazy about you.
I didn't expect that from him.
I have to go, sorry. I'm in a hurry.
Wait. I need you
to help me find out what happened.
We all want,
but that's a job for the police.
They're still opening the case.
Marcos is just another number for them.
My father just hired
a private investigator.
[grave music playing]
Did he find anything?
Not yet.
You didn't see anything unusual?
Wait, Aitana.
If you remember anything at all
call me.
You're gonna sleep downstairs?
You said you wanted a divorce, Blanca.
What do you want me to do, huh?
What the fuck do you want me to do?
You're gonna drive me crazy!
We've been married for 20 years.
I want you to say something!
To do something!
Not just go to sleep downstairs!
Fight for us, damn it!
It's almost like you don't care!
No, it's not like I don't care!
But I wasn't the one who asked for this!
You're the one who had it
all figured out for the two of us!
I just want you to be here, Ramón.
In this bedroom. In this house.
- To be here, Ramón. To be here!
- I don't get you.
I don't get you. Is this a bluff?
The divorce, Blanca, is this a bluff?
Because I swear to God,
I don't understand anything!
You don't understand anything!
And you never have because
you're a selfish piece of shit, okay?
- We're gonna wake the kid.
- [scoffs] Now you care about the kid?
You've always been
miserable about his condition.
Look, I
You know what?
I think it's best if I go sleep tonight
at my brother's house.
[sarcastic] Yeah,
that's where you're going.
Again with this bullshit? Again?
I'm not seeing anyone, damn it!
I'm not seeing anyone!

Mom, read story.
[yells] Not tonight, Lorenzo!
[Ramón] Go to your room, Lorenzo! Now!
[somber music playing]
[Ramón] Can't you see you're always
looking for a reason to suffer?
- [Blanca] That is not true!
- [Ramón] No. No.
[Ramón] What you really like
is you like feeling like a piece of shit
for absolutely no reason at all!
Well, the piece of shit is you!
[door slams]
[somber music continues]
[Ramón sighs]
Hey, buddy, um, do you want to do
something to have fun with me tomorrow?
Something really fun?
No? Well, that's because
I haven't told you what we'll do yet.
What do you say?
Buddy, listen to me.
Listen to me. Listen to me.
