Duarte took Juliana as his protegee, until he was fired by Monserrat and forced to escape to the Triple Frontier. She was held then by Monserrat himself, who tried to get rid of the Miguez and Bautista by staging a negotiation with the kidnappers (who were actually his mooks) and returning Juliana to her family. But when he discovered that Juliana had once seen him, and would be able to identify him, he canceled the whole thing. Rosario attempted then to act as a sex trafficker and buy a number of girls from the network, with Juliana's profile. She could not rescue her: Dante tried to prevent the sold, unaware of Rosario's role in it, and sent her with Duarte.

The real activities of Monserrat are finally exposed to the Fundation, the justice, and society at large. Abandoned by his criminal allies and his henchmen, he staged a suicide when the police sought to take him prisoner. He escaped and stayed hidden. Mansilla organized a video where Bautista is seen killing a woman, so that he is forced to escape from the police as well. Juliana escapes and is recaptured, and then captured by the Unquillo brothers, a rival band. Bautista locates Monserrat but fails to capture him, and Rosario sought info about Juliana within the factory owned by the Unquillo.

Rosario finally locates Juliana at the place were she was held captive, and fired to Duarte when leaving. Duarte kidnapps Ana to exchange her for Juliana, but gets killed when she is finally rescued as well.
