The Stepdaughters Episode 52 Francis be friended Isabelle to gain evidence against her, Mayumi and Luisa board a ship to slip from the hand of Jigs
Mayumi and Luisa left for the airport for their vacation. Marigold found out their location and informed Isabelle. Isabelle met up with Jigs to inform him about the current location of Mayumi and Luisa.
Jigs told her that Francis interfered and that was the reason he lost Mayumi and Luisa. He offered to get rid of Francis too but Isabelle told him not to hurt Francis. She paid Jigs to make sure he finished the job and Jigs left to follow them.
When Sasha and Mum Baby went home, Francis and Bryce were waiting. They told them that the guy who kidnapped Luisa had been following them. Francis told them not to tell anyone where Mayumi and Luisa went.
When Jigs arrived at the place where Mayumi and Luisa went, he asked the people who welcomed visitors if they had seen them but they failed to give him any information.
Jigs therefore checked into a hotel and called Isabelle to tell her that it would be difficult to find Mayumi and Luisa. He asked to hire someone else to help him look for them and Isabelle agreed. She also said she would send him rehab or wellness centres in the area since that was where Mayumi and Luisa likely went to.
Mayumi and Luisa checked into a hotel, since their reservation for the wellness centre was booked for a different day. They went to the beach to relax but Mayumi lost Luisa for a while when Luisa went chasing after a missing child but Mayumi eventually found her. Jigs was at the same beach but did not see them since he was distracted by girls at the beach.
Francis talked to Bryce about finding Froilan to fish out the person who ordered him to attack Luisa. Bryce said it was Isabelle so Francis decided to monitor her. He went to her house under the pretense of seeing Hernan and Isabelle told him that Mayumi might get jealous. Francis said it did not matter since they already broke up. He also agreed to be friends with Isabelle again.
Jigs found Luisa and Mayumi since they were staying at the same hotel as him. He tried sneaking into their room but they already checked out. Mayumi and Luisa were headling to the wellness centre and were about to leave when Luisa said she had to go to the bathroom. Mayumi waited for her at the reception.
Luisa ran into Jigs and she recognised him as the person who kidnapped her. Jigs attacked Luisa and Luisa called out for Mayumi. Mayumi went to get Luisa and asked the guards for help.
The guards tried arresting Jigs but he beat them up. Meanwhile, Mayumi and Luisa escaped from the hotel. They hailed a taxi outside and asked the driver to get them out of there immediately since someone was after their lives. The driver was surprised to hear that so he told them to get out of his car, he did not want to get involved.
Mayumi and Luisa got out and headed to the harbour. They asked for tickets to the ship leaving immediately and bought tickets to Cebu. Jigs was able to follow them and saw them leaving to board the ship. He was worried about having a gun but his friend said they could get inside the ship with the help of someone he knew.
Isabelle met up with Nikki and Aryana and told them about her renewed friendship with Francis. Nikki said it seemed suspicious that Francis wanted to be friends again and said that he might only want to use Isabelle as a rebound. Isabelle said she didn’t mind as she might help him forget about Mayumi.
Mayumi and Luisa didn’t see Jigs when they went to board the ship and they were convinced that they managed to get away from him.
