Gregori and I want to talk to you about something.

What? I was waiting for you.

Congratulations, honey.

We are happy for you.


Stay away.

When the nurse left us alone,

looked me straight in the eye...

... And began to tell me

always felt like a fish out of water.

And they put it on the cutting board.

That they left there, jumping

desperately for breath.

Screaming to the world:

"Why do not you just kill me?"

Well, I guess we can relax a bit


When she and the little

Leo feel better...

... Can decide whether or not to stay.

That was speaking.


Next Rocky Gate to

my goals on the board.

I know, because you're late.

Hey. The rules are rules.

So... now sees paste.

You might want some

exam answers, right?

- Yes

-. They are in the tray.

- Gregori?

- Yes

When crossing St. Bede, I'm

to the right or the left?

- Go left.

- Exactly.

I ended.

- How did it go?

- Very good.

19 good and bad?

A this is what I call

a disgrace.

Then we go to the extra question.

How do you describe someone who disobeys


... Down a tube instead of using the stairs

his father built him?


Try again.


You approach.

- Felix, can you help?

- A wild?

Wild? Maybe that's too harsh.

No. I was thinking more "unreliable".

Good work!

Are you progress, you know.

- How do you think you did?

- Mal

Come on. Only someone older

Well, okay.

The approach went well...

... And I think the delivery was wrong this time


- But I stumbled a bit at the end.

- Okay, you did good, right?

Are you ready?

What !?

Excuse me, are you. Peter lapato?


Who are you?

To tell you honest, choosing the

star tonight was difficult.

There was much disobedience this week.

Thought I forgot that rules are important.

And they are rules, we will become


So finally I decided that...


As anyone deserved to have the honor of being star...

... Tonight we will share.

To be fair, Ariana

was close to doing.

Aside from an incident with a mother

Tuesday. It was a star.

He spent extra time in the garden.

Fulfilled its missions successfully.


is becoming one dedicated model.

Thank you, Ariana.

Now our other star

's another story...

Sometimes he likes to be noticed.

But his performance this week has been impressive


And he deserves to be rewarded.

It's a hardworking guy.

And it reminds us daily that is a

star with a heart that...

... Clear and strong beats.

In fact, the last two months,

has been our leader on the board.

Good work!

Please keep trying


Come on, Ariana!

Hey, sorry

get you out of the fun.

I could not sleep without...

... Fix this mystery.

Do you know what they are?

I found them outside, on the ground...

Just... I liked.

Yes... good. It's funny, right?

I like you've become curious


But that's the tricky part.

Some things look good.

When I was a boy...

... Like you.

The only memory of my mother

was a perfume bottle.

After his death,

was my favorite toy.

Always he claimed that was something different.

A cowboy. A soldier.

A doctor.

One day I learned something new that


If you use it with some matches...

... You can create a heinous and ruthless


Clearly I remember the feeling.

I stood there, confused, watching my hand


Wondering how something that smells so good...

... I could cause me so much pain.

I remember hearing the sirens.

What is closer and closer.

And you know that's what hurt me most


Who knew

those sirens did not come for me.

And that's the way of the world.

This is your danger.

But here you should not worry about those things.

If you want something you ask me

only and you will.

- Right?

- Yes

When was the last time

I said "I love you"?

- Why you know how much I love you, right?

- I love you too.

It is important that you appreciate what you have.

And to protect him.

Your beautiful mother and your brothers,

that go with me everywhere.

You'll have to look after them.

Be the older brother.

Your protector. And who wants to destroy


- Right?

- Yes, of course.

's Beautiful, Leo.

You must like that, honey.

- How do you feel?

- I'm fine. I've been sleeping a lot.


says it's important to listen to my body.

I have done and I managed to sleep.

But every time I fall asleep,

I have a very strange dream.

Can not remember what happened to Alexander.

I'm standing on a beautiful hill.

Is covered with a thick green grass

and much puppies.

When I look up, the hill

extends to infinity.

And then just the bass.

- Why not just go up?

- I do not know, only the low.

It's easier that way?

Yes, I suppose that's true.

Is easier.

One of the greatest pleasures of sowing in winter is

have time to plan it.

The garden is at its wet state.

By making it ideal

to rethink things.

While autumn leaves,

it takes its colors and...

... Leaves a leafless garden.

That is not necessary.

- What you said?

- That's not necessary.

Your garden has leaves.

Sorry, I do not understand.

Some vegetables and cabbage

can be harvested in the winter.

Well, yes, Leo. You are right.


But just so you know we are sowing here


... And only spoke to them to plant in winter


Without being very specific about

our small winter garden.

You're not planting peas.

's Right. We do not have any.

We pods, okay?

- Can we continue, please?

- The pods are mutated species.

You know what?

I think it was enough talk.

Now, let's...

Is it okay? So all continue digging...

Alexander, there. Over there.

Leo left alone to work on their projects.
