Don Alejandro is about to tell Anita she must return to Spain, until he notices the brooch she is wearing. Anita says her father sent it to her from Los Angeles. Alejandro recognizes it as having belonged to Diego's mother, and remembers giving it to the church for auction after her death. Diego and Alejandro realize that if they can determine who bought the brooch at auction, they can find Anita's father. But Anita is in danger from Ruiz and Jose, who have already found her father, and hold him for ransom until she brings her gold to them in exchange.
