Burning Betrayal ending explained in detail:

What is Marco hiding?

Marco is a mysterious enigma who enraptures Babi completely. She’s drawn to his mystique and wants to know more about him.

He shares in crumbs, telling her several times that his life is complicated and that he finds it hard to trust others.

After they’ve been sleeping together for a long while, their affair comes to a screeching halt when Marco’s wife Paula forces herself into his house.

Mad at him, she reveals to Babi that she’s Marco’s wife and badmouths him, hurling insults at him as well as her. She says he left her and destroyed her when she needed him the most.

Babi is furious and disappointed and promptly leaves. Later on, in Burning Betrayal, Marco comes clean to Babi. He takes her to this hospital room where his daughter Paula is currently receiving intensive care.

She has a rare disease and developmental issues that require her to be attached to machines all the time. Paula was suffering from mental issues before her pregnancy and after the birth of their daughter, it only got worse.

Marco reveals that he tried everything to help but nothing worked. His last straw was when Paula tried to take Vitória away from the life-sustaining machines with her. He then got a restraining order against her and very soon, he tells Babi, that their divorce is about to be finalized.

What did Caio do?

Caio is involved in a money-laundering scheme. He got himself involved in it when Thiago, his fianceé’s best friend and colleague at the firm, told him about it.

However, he didn’t know that doing this would involve working for a crime syndicate. However, as long as it benefitted him and satiated his thirst for women, he was fine with it.

Caio was cheating on Babi all this time she was spending preparing for their marriage. His cheating is what gives way to Babi’s sexual liberation in Burning Betrayal.

What happens to Thiago and Caio?

Thiago was the one behind Caio and Babi’s separation. He says he did after seeing Caio spend all the money he made on leisures. He’s the one who sends her photographs of Caio having sex with other women.

He’s also the one who tries to do everything he can to stop Babi from revealing the contents of the laptop she gets her hands on.

The evidence against Caio within the laptop incriminates him and it would eventually do the same for Thiago. As the crime syndicate makes it clear that they have to fix this Babi problem, Thiago becomes dead set on killing her.

He takes her to a forest puts her inside a grave, and hands over Caio the gun to kill Babi, but he can’t. Babi tries to retaliate by hitting Caio with a shovel. However, it doesn’t do much for her case.

Caio still can’t shoot her so Thiago puts a bullet in him. He goes to shoot her but Marco, who tracked Babi down with the help of her best friend Paty, arrives and stops him, getting shot himself in the process.

Thiago goes to shoot again but the police arrive and he’s shot down. The ending of Burning Betrayal sees an anchor talk about the crime that transpired, mentioning that two men were arrested for trying to kill Babi.

Caio and Thiago seem to be dead but as the anchor reveals, they are still alive and in detainment.
