In the next chapters of The favorite, Donatela (Claudia Raia) will discover that Diva (Giulia Gam) has not died. Everything happens when Zé Bob (Carmo Dalla Vecchia) discovers that Diva and Rosana are the same person. After suffering a lightning kidnapping and being left on a road, he finds a card with a gang address on the floor. The next day, with a photo of Rosana in hand, he goes to the place. He recognizes her on the street and follows her to a restaurant. When she is alone, Zé approaches and asks if he should call her Diva or Rosana. The bandit manages to escape.

Zé is caught again by Tito’s henchmen (Dionisio Neto), but Diva asks her boyfriend to release him. Moments later, Zé looks for Pepe (Jean-Pierre Noher). “Diva didn’t die, I had it with her… You lied to me”, accuses him. The bar owner claims that the journalist can only be joking. But when he sees her picture, Pepe turns pale. Zé then realizes that he is telling the truth. Pepe asks for Diva’s address and goes after her. Seeing her coming out of hiding, he intercepts her before she gets into the car. Diva gets scared and gets slapped in the face by her ex-boyfriend.

Pepe speaks several insults and shouts that he cried for her death. Diva asks to talk and explain what happened. She reminds him that she always said she would let him down, but that he insisted on visiting her in prison. Very hurt, Pepe says that what she did to him, to Augusto (José Mayer), Shiva (Miguel Rômulo) and Elias (Leonardo Medeiros) is unforgivable. And he accuses her of having used Donatela to clean up his mess. “I didn’t mean to let you down, my friend. Pardon me?”. Pepe says no, because forgiveness is not enough. “You have to do something and I think we still have time” speaks.

The next day, Pepe is crestfallen at the bar when Donatela arrives. “Didn’t you open the bar today? Did something happen?”. He lifts his head and drops the bomb. “The Diva…is alive”. The ex-van is shocked. At first, she doesn’t believe it. But as soon as the bar owner reveals that he himself saw and spoke to the bandit, she is stunned. “She deceived us, she did not die”, he says. Furious, the ex-van asks where she is, and Pepe tells her that is living nearby, in the Liberdade neighborhood.

Donatela is even more shocked. “Over here, Pepe, how can you, what is this?”. He tries to calm his friend down. Donatela asks him to tell her everything she knows, how he got to her. She reveals that it was through Zé Bob. “She got around to both of us”, notes Donatela. The bar owner remembers that she didn’t just go around them. “It hit several people who, if they followed her lead, would get to you.” Lara’s mother (Mariana Ximenes) says that she also lied about the disease. “But why did she do it?”.

The former station wagon says that the fire at the penitentiary could not have been forged. “A woman died in my place, if not her, who could have?”. Until she remembers that the night before her escape, an inmate died, and Diva may have set the fire and used the body. “Oh my God. And I thought that Diva was my friend, who helped me. What an idiot I was, she helped me out of jail because I was going to pay the bill in her place. She threw me into the lions’ den”speaks, in tears and disappointed.
