De Silva funds his campaign with the aid of his new-found ally, Don Emilio Syquia, through their drug-trading business. With the remaining members of Pulang Araw and his allies in prison, Cardo forms the vigilante group Vendetta to combat corruption in the Philippines. However, with the elections drawing nearer, both De Silva and Hipolito continue to malign the name of Vendetta through Luis "Buwaya" Mangubat and Homer "Alakdan" Adlawan's Kamandag, respectively, each performing acts of terrorism which are blamed on Vendetta. Elsewhere, Cardo's marriage to Alyana is also put to the test as she is pursued by her new boss, Marco Cabrera.
