Singer-actress Angeline Quinto portrayed Paula Jamie Salvosa, who was tagged as the "Amalayer girl" in 2012.

Highlight of the episode is Salvosa's controversial confrontation with a female security guard at the LRT station, which led to her becoming a target of cyberbullying.

The confrontation was caught on video and was uploaded on Youtube. It showed Salavosa humiliating the security guard, who supposedly called her attention for using the wrong entrance.

Within hours of the video getting uploaded, the hashtag "#Amalayer" and the word "LRT" both trended nationwide on micro-blogging site Twitter, with netizens criticizing Salvosa for her supposed arrogance.

According to Salvosa, the viral spread of the video, and being the target of ridicule online, marked the "darkest moment" of her life.
