Later that evening, we get to meet the infamous Gaby. Mariana takes her back to her apartment and gives her the grand tour. And by the grand tour I mean she takes her directly to her bed, while Gaby goes on about how she’s never done this before. Mariana suggests that they go out to a gay bar. But Gaby is all, “No, what if I run into someone…” But Mariana is very persuasive.
The outing starts on a sweet note:
But ends unpleasantly, when Gaby and Mariana are spotted by a gang of homophobes.
After many homophobic insults, the leader ends up hitting Mariana and putting a USB key in her shirt.
In the process of all this, Mariana drops her wallet. When they go back to the apartment, they’re both pretty shaken up. And Gaby insists she can’t really deal with all of this and leaves. Mariana watches the video on the USB key, which is essentially a message of warning to the gay community.
The next day, Mariana goes to the only place she feels safe: to Rafaela’s house.
She tells them all what happened and they’re all horrified. Super Mercedes, of course, jumps on the case. She asks Mariana to give her the USB key.
Later on, she admits that she’s scared because she dropped her wallet and she thinks the gang might have it and might do something to her in her apartment. Rafaela is quick to tell her that she’s to stay with them until it’s safe to go back home.
Rafaela, Alma and Mercedes all sit at the computer and watch the video on the USB key and all agree that something must be done.
