Three years later, Victor returns to the country, but discovers that everything has changed when he sees that his old gang, "Los Tigres", has replaced him with Aran (Arán de las Casas) as leader, and that Sheryl has become the leader of a group of girls called "Las Reinas" and a "tough girl" who does not want to know anything about him.

Meanwhile, Victor reconnects with his best friend from his youth, who waited for him the whole time he was out of the country, tomboy Rosmeri Rivas (Rosmeri Marval), a mechanic for the Rodríguez family workshop who is secretly in love with him. With their new leader, Los Tigres goes from consisting of Jorge, Victor, Luciano and Ricardo to being Aran, Gustavo, Luciano, Jorge and Ricardo, all popular kids in the city.
