The strain on their relationship was only aggravated by introduction of Macoy, who Miggy is jealous of. Macoy is Laida's long time friend who she had a falling out with after Macoy did not keep his promise to her of going to the same college.Things went further haywire when Miggy had to fix a few issues in the plant when he accepted orders from his brother Art's ex-girlfriend, Christina.

His father stepped in and help resolve the issue but Miggy had to set expectations to the clients affected by the strike.

He got there late and saw Laida crying with Macoy beside her, emotions clashed between the two and they decided to cool-off for the time being.
