When the fake president, Mariano (Rowell Santiago), snatched Ellen (Ara Mina) and Cassandra (Maika Rivera)’s attention, he thought he’d be living happily. But his life is slowly turning into a fool’s paradise or maybe a living nightmare as the two women just won’t stop fighting over him, leading to a series of troubles. In this Friday 5 feature, we rounded up Cassandra and Ellen’s most intense and scandalous showdowns in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
The rivalry got more entertaining when Cassandra started sending Arturo (Tirso Cruz III) pieces of evidence pointing to his wife, Ellen’s illicit affair. Two kontrabidas, equally ambitious and wild, would surely make up a fair fight. Pinoy teleserye fans love it more when both fighters are full of will and biting sarcasm, although in this case, Casandra seems equipped with more while Ellen is quite the peevish one.
In a scene, Ellen tried to threaten Cassandra and told her to back off. But the latter won’t raise the white flag, saying, “Don’t give me orders. Hindi ka nga dito nagtatrabaho sa palasyo, bakit ako makikinig sa’yo?” Admit it, Cassandra has a point. And when tailed around the palace, she managed to outsmart her suspicious adversary.
In the next scene, Cassandra enjoyed her victory in the dining area. She flirted with Mariano until Ellen entered the scene, fuming with anger. Ellen was quick to turn the plot by splashing a glass of wine on Cassandra’s dress and acting innocent after.
The two eventually got tired of the subtle confrontations. They went all out in the next scene as they engaged in a loud confrontation. Ellen called Cassandra names like ‘malandi.’ which the latter fiercely embraced. She might be ‘malandi’ but at least she’s not married. It was a matter of who’s less evil and more desirable between them.
It went wilder from there as Ellen caught Cassandra and Mariano making love, leading to a round of slapping and hair pulling. It was so intense the security even had to ask for Renato (John Arcilla)’s help to end the drama. Yet, bruises and all, Cassandra declared that she fears no one, especially not Ellen.
As Lily (Lorna Tolentino) reveals the explosive truth about Ellen and Mariano’s secret affair, will Cassandra be steps ahead of her rival? Don’t miss an episode of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z.
