Vincent’s Lifeline

Quick recap: The proud ex-general Armando is unable to cope with the truth about his son, Vincent being gay. Vincent is kidnapped by his father’s military henchmen and is forced to join a 45- day boot camp. Armando insists this will be the best cure for his son’s “malady”. Vincent’s odd disappearance raises Lally’s  suspicions. She feels that something bad has happened to Vince and seeks help from Eric. Armando finds out that Lally and Eric are headed to report their suspicions to the CHR (Center of Human Rights). He quickly takes action and tells Vincent to convince Lally not to do it and threatens to hurt Eric. Vincent calls Eric and reassures him he is ok but he really isn’t.

Three days into the camp, Vincent tries to escape but fails. In the process he steals a handgun. He’s summoned to see one of the top officials at his office who reveals that he sympathizes with him because he too has a brother who is gay.  Sadly, the official says he can’t let Vincent discontinue the program because Vincent’s father is still his superior. But he lends Vincent his cellphone, a paper and pen. Agitated and desperate Vincent calls his father and tells him he is who he is. Armando once again succeeds in insulting his son with unkind words and insists that he finish the camp and be a real man. Vincent threatens to kill himself and end it all.

Armando’s doctor suspects he has HIV. The upcoming episode trailer definitely shows karma’s pending wrath on Armando with the confirmation of an HIV positive blood test plus Paul’s return and Armando’s arrest. Plus, Vincent is really awake and sees Eric and Lally.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens next. I just hope they don’t use the amnesia approach in the upcoming episode. Who will Vincent recognize first? Remains to be seen.
