Grappling with whether to return home to attend the funeral – in the face of potential ridicule and harassment – Blanca ultimately takes Pray’s advice and decides to go. Not just to say goodbye, but to be a healthy example for the House of Evangelista. Despite a heated run-in with her sister before the services, Blanca shows up with her house and gets invited by one of her mother’s sisters to the funeral reception after.
There, she finds her mother’s recipe book, which reminds Blanca of the bond she had with her mom before being kicked out. Blanca wants to take it -- the only thing she asks for of her mother’s -- but her brother attacks her before she flees the house. Later on, Blanca's sister drops by her apartment to drop the recipe book off.
