The week opens with scenes from last week's cliffhanger Heartbreak Night where the hosts and Direk Lauren explain the penalty that was levied on the PawEl loveteam.
The episode then continues with the much-awaited finale of the 2nd Heartbreak Night. The hosts ask the two weakest loveteams, Paw&Mikel and Karel&Gabb to share their messages for each other.
Paw: Alam mo, babybear, okay lang naman talaga yun.. dapat laging mag kasama... and i'm happy na kasama kita sa punishment.
Karel: Thank you also Gabb sa lahat, at thank you to Qpids, kasi nagawa namin ang lahat na kaya namin... and if nagtatapos na dito, okay lang, it's not the end of the world; I will stand up no matter what. I'm always here for you and we'll be strong together, okay lang yan. Thank you again.
Luis then turns the floor over to the Love Council for their decision.
Direk Lauren says to Paw and Mikel: you have to consider the consequences of their actions because you are looked up to by others because they are all celebrities... many young people idolize them and so they have to take care of what they do both in front and behind the camera. They have to remember that they're not acting just for themselves but also for their partner.
For Gabb and Karel, he says -- you 'found each other in this program' and you started a friendship here because of everything that you went through together. That friendship is more than enough of a prize for this experience.
Direk concludes: Unfortunately, this is a competition and someone has to leave. He then reveals that Gabb and Karel have been eliminated from the show.
Gabb and Karel share their last dance, as scenes from their lovestory appear on the screen. Karel says in the video's voiceover that she doesn't look for love, she just waits for it... and sometimes it's unexpected who you love. She's so happy that she's comfortable with Gabb and that they're comfortable together. Gabb says in his video voiceover... Karel is sweet, pretty, and good to talk to... and that she's special to him.
Luis ends the Heartbreak Night by asking -- What Loventure is awaiting the remaining 7 loveteams? Stay tuned to find out.
The China (aka Hong-pin) Loventure!
After Heartbreak Night has ended, and the ABS-CBN Studio has been emptied of its studio audience, hosts Anne and Luis meet the remaining 7 loveteams on stage, to announce their next Loventure, where the loveteams will get to go to China!
After the cast's initial excitement dies down, Anne and Luis explain the twist -- the top three loveteams will fly to Hong Kong, China while the four remaining loveteams will get to visit Chinatown in Binondo. LOL.
Anne says that last week they all had a chance to discuss and agree on the roles they would play in their acting challenge. This time, a loveteam must win the race in order to secure the lead role in another acting 'kilig-sena'. If they don't win then they might only get a supporting role or even only a bit-part.
Unfortunately, even though Carla and Janus are currently ranked #2, they will not be able to join the others because Janus' passport is not yet ready. So Carla and Janus will stay in Manila and join the Binondo group, while Pauleen and Gian will get to go to Hong Kong in their place.
The Hong Kong teams: MhyZel, CarVane, PauGi
The Binondo teams: JaRla, JillWyn, DomRea, PawEl
The Hong Kong teams are then shown arriving at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport to board their Cathay Pacific flight to Hong Kong. Everyone seems to be having a good time and are excited to start this loventure.
In the meantime, all four Manila loveteams (PawEl, Jarla, Domrea, and JillWyn) meet at ABS-CBN and gather together at what appears to be the rooftop to collect the gear and clues that have been prepared for them.
Together, they all open their clues and read them out loud for the cameras: Pumunta kayo sa fountain area sa harap ng Binondo Church at hanapin ang clue box na may Bear Flag. May 100 pesos lang kayo for this race kaya gamitin ng mabuti.
They also find Qpids jackets and caps, an umbrella, a backpack, and they are told they're not allowed to use their cellphones during this LOVEnture.
Meanwhile, the three teams in Hong Kong have landed and are also being handed their respective clues at the airport.
They learn that they must take the MTR and get to the Haiphong Road Mosque and have their photo taken in front of it. They are supplied with a backpack with a map of Hong Kong, a videocamera, and 500 Hong Kong dollars.
All the Manila loveteams race to the elevators and each team is given free hand to choose their preferred mode of transportation to get to the Binondo Church.
Alwyn tells Jill they can take an FX or a Jeep. Paw and Mikel decide to take a cab. Dominic and Andrea also opt for a jeep, while Janus and Carla decide to take the MRT.
As the race unfolds, we see Alwyn and Jill get off the tricycle and board a Jeep, while Dominic and Andrea are trying to flag down some means of transportation. Paw and Mikel were able to convince a cab driver to drive them to Binondo Church for only P50.00, and in return they thanked "Mang Jun of Pangasinan" for helping them.
Dominic and Andrea are now on a Jeep on the way to the church. Carla and Janus arrive at the MRT station, and while waiting for the train to arrive, Carla starts asking fellow commuters for some money to supplement their 100 pesos.
Jill and Alwyn arrive at Quiapo Church and only then realize that Quiapo Church and Binondo Church are worlds apart. They keep walking and eventually, Alwyn offers to carry Jill -- and Jill hops onto Alwyn's back. Eventually, we see them approaching an archway marking the entrance to Binondo.
As the episode ends, all seven loveteams are still at various points on their way to their first stops. It's still anyone's guess as to who will be the fastest to complete the first leg of this Loventure!
