Eva determines to dissolve her arrangement with Romero, and Elio confesses his true heart to Navarro, and his final bout is just opening in Córdoba. Anfelita is wounded by the broken engagement, but then falls in love with Romero's cousin Philippe.

Romero challenges Elio to a duel, but at the duel ground Elio meets Eva's mother, who tells him the dreadful truth. The two are siblings with different mothers. The duel is canceled. Without telling Eva the truth, Elio vows to her that he will never let go of this instant, and listens to her talk about their happy future. However, his mind is full of despair.
