Today's episode showcases the acting scenes for the last 2 groups, who are both doing scenes from Lovers in Paris.
First, Jill & Alwyn, Carlo & Vanessa, and Marc C perform their scene near the pool. Jill and Alwyn take the lead roles as Carlo and Vivian, while Carlo and Vanessa play a security guard and a maid. Marc C plays the role of the pool boy.
Alwyn and Jill rehearse their lines and Marc tries to annoy them by splashing water on them.
Alwyn says he didn't really want the lead because it was a lot of pressure and they have to portray the characters right so the Love Council will be impressed.
Carlo and Vanessa have a minor tiff when Carlo noted that Vanessa spends a lot of time with Marc C, but it doesn't last and they are very quickly friends again. Marc tries to amuse Vanessa while they are rehearsing.
Carlo says he's not jealous. Vanessa, on the other hand, says she's good friends with Marc.
The weather turns bad during Alwyn and Jill's take as Carlo and Vivian so the boys while away the time in the pool.
When the weather clears, it is already night time, and Direk Lauren gives Alwyn some pointers on how to portray the role of Carlo. Alwyn has some difficulty connecting with his character, because it is difficult for him to balance the seriousness and lightness of someone twice his age.
Finally, Jill and Alwyn perform the scene, where "Vivian" tells "Carlo" she does not know how to swim, before falling into the pool. "Carlo" despite his sprain, jumps into the pool to try and rescue "Vivian," who does not actually need rescuing.
When Jill and Alwyn leave the poolside, Carlo and Vanessa then enter the scene as the security guard and the maid. They quickly shed their clothes and jump into the pool.
After completing the take, Carlo and Alwyn both go after Marc C and throw him into the pool. LOL.
Next we see a clip from Carlo and Vanessa's interview, where they talk about their turn as "Vivian" and "Carlo". Vanessa says that she's confident, but that this is her first experience with a leading role; unlike her partner Carlo who she says is a winning actor.
Alwyn and Jill in their interview later say that Vanessa seemed to be having difficulty with Tagalog because she's an 'export.' He then says that he grades his and Jill's performance as 70%, and Jill ups it to 75%. They hope that the Love Council will like their performance.
Finally, the fourth group -- Carla & Janus, Paw & Mikel -- perform their scenes from Lovers in Paris.
Their segment of this episode opens with Luis explaining via voiceover that Paw and Mikel would have the lead role of Vivian and Carlo, while Carla and Janus would be in a supporting role portraying a male and female passerby.
We then see both couples walking through their rehearsals with Direk Lauren, and learn that former Qpids Prince Charming Mike Agassi is the special guest who will participate in their performances.
Carla in her interview said that since Paw and Mikel were already in the Red Heart (safe) zone, she and Janus needed this opportunity to prove that they are also worthy of being in the Red Heart zone.
Luis in his voiceover asked how comfortable Carla would be acting in a scene with her former prince charming Mikel. Carla responds: "I'm very confident. Alam ko magaling umarte si Janus. Lalaban kami."
We then see Janus joking around in front of the camera, saying he's KSP and he asks if he can get some foster parents. His antics prompt Direk Lauren to call him aside and tell him that he's being KSP.
Direk Lauren: "E paano, kahit wala ka sa eksena, gumagawa ka ng eksena."
Janus responds: "E siyempre, paano ako mapapansin? E ang gwa-gwapo ng mga kalaban ko eh." LOL.
The scene then shifts to Janus and Mikel apparently having an argument.
Janus in his interview says: "Inaamin ko naman, gusto kong mabago yung bad temper ko. Kasi, bihira ako magalit, pero pagmagalit ako talaga... kailangan huwag niyo akong lapitan... kasi... " At this point, Carla leans in and says: "Maniwala kayo."
Mikel in his interview says that Janus is upset with him because Direk Lauren had caught Janus smoking in one of the bathrooms.
Direk Lauren noted the number of cigarette butts on the floor and started asking the others in the room who else had smoked.
When no one else confessed to the deed, Janus angrily said, "O sige, ako na ang nagyosi ng lahat na yan, pati yung lights."
Despite repeated questioning by Direk Lauren, no one else admitted to smoking in the bathroom. Mikel in his interview said he had not been smoking, that he was just lying in bed at that time.
Finally, it was time to rehearse and shoot the scenes. Janus says that Mikel and Paw are sweet to look at and they are sweet to each other, as if there's something happening behind the scenes.
We then see Paw and Mikel's segment being shot. "Vivian" and "Carlo" are walking through the park talking, and we see "Carlo" trying to hug "Vivian" as he claims that he feels like crying.
"Vivian" resists the hugs, and then complains when "Carlo" calls her "Baby." She replies, "I'm a woman" and pretends to walk away in anger, but she is smiling.
In their interview, Paw says that she loves the character of "Martin" and Mikel pretends to get jealous. After their take, Paw asks Mikel how their scene went and he says that he should have done better.
Finally, it was time to rehearse and shoot the scene of Carla and Janus, where this time they would be portraying Vivian and Carlo walking together in a park.
During their interview, Janus and Carla laughingly talked about their experience working with Mike Agassi, whose mission was apparently to try to distract them both during rehearsals.
Turns out Mike had been trying to distract them by asking inane questions, and by coming into the scene at the wrong times.
Before long, it was time to shoot the actual scene. Carla and Janus (portraying Vivian and Carlo) walk together through the park, and after sitting together, "Carlo" hands "Vivian" a piggy bank, saying: This is our baby, please take care of it and don't let it go hungry.
"Vivian" sets the piggy bank down to one side and starts opening her bag, saying that she has something to give to "Carlo." At that point, Mike enters the scene and tries to snatch the piggy bank. "Carlo" goes after him and wrestles with him until Mike eventually drops the pig.
"Vivian" seizes the opportunity to rescue the piggy bank, then starts to run from the scene.
She eventually realizes that "Carlo" is not behind her, and returns to where the two men were still wrestling on the floor, then starts to hit Mike on the head with her bag. "Carlo" finally manages to wriggle out of Mike's grasp, and together, "Vivian" and "Carlo" make a run for it.
They're both laughing in their interview as they describe the scene that follows. Mike gets up and starts running after Janus, completely ignoring the piggy bank which was still with Carla.
The two men chase each other around the garden, but eventually stop when Janus slips on the grass. Janus is laughing in his interview when he says the editors will no doubt replay the scene of him slipping on the grass a few times (which they did. LOL).
In their interview, Mikel says it's fun to see Janus being beaten up by Carla, and Paw says: "Para sakin talagang maganda ang Janus-Carla tandem. Kasi... for a change... kasi, lahat kami dito, sweet-sweety. Sila yung iba. Sila ang nagpapaiba ng mode... happy-happy."
We then get to see the final versions of the scenes for Group 4's loveteams.
The episode ends with Direk Lauren meeting everyone once again at the living room of the house, where he reminds them that 50% of the elimination criteria is dependent on how they performed during this loventure.
Direk says: Okay, maraming nangyari sa araw na 'to. This loventure, hindi ko alam kung puro love ang nangyari. May mga awayan, oncam and offcam; may mga nasita na pinagmulan ng pag-aaway. This is a test, not only of your acting abilities, but also of your relationships with each other bilang loveteam and bilang magkakaibigan.
He continues: The love council will review your performances. 50% of your scores will be based on the love council. The other 50% will be based on the votes. The one who will receive the immunity bear will be revealed at Heartbreak Night on Thursday.
