Despite everything, Cruz asks Patrick to come to his room that evening.
Once Prince Phillipe sees that Felipe has returned to the scene, he suggests that they, Caye, and Isadora go to dinner.

Caye tells Isadora that Prince Phillip needs to hear about her “problem”, and she brings Isadora home. While in bed alone, Patrick is about to to visit Cruz when he meets Ivan.
