In its three triumphant years on television, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano filled our primetime with action-packed sequences, which brought us to the edge of our seats and made us wait for the upcoming scenes in bated breaths.
As the journey of the main protagonist Ricardo “Cardo” Dalisay continues to unfold, we also got to join him and the rest of the ensemble in their comedic shenanigans. These include those that involved his previous unlikely sidekicks Benny (Pepe Herrera) and Onyok (Xymon Pineda) and titillating romances, spearheaded by on-screen couple Cardo and Alyana (Yassi Pressman) who have proven that love is sweeter (and even stronger!) the second time around.
However, it seemed that another loveteam is on the rise, aside from #TeamGummyBears comprised by Jerome (John Prats) and Bubbles (Bianca Manalo), as two of the leaders of Vendetta finally admitted, though separately, that they are officially an item – Romulo “Leon/Pinuno” Dumaguit (Lito Lapid) and ex-Brigadier General Diana Olegario (Angel Aquino).
In the past weeks, we had somehow found out about the special feelings that they harbor toward each other, which are seem evident with how much attention they bestow to one another and with their sneaky, thrilling gestures as well, as seen on the five clips included in the Friday 5 video above.
And after a long time of sending only mixed signals and contenting themselves with catching one another’s glimpses, especially Pinuno’s penchant in gazing at his apple-of-the-eye’s bedazzling beauty, they, at long last, started their romantic relationship with a short yet very sweet kiss during their alone time at the river.
Initially, Diana didn’t want their affair to be disclosed to their comrades, in the fear of being misjudged with the belief that girls should be pursued first. But he promised to woo and take care of her for the rest of their lives. Her tongue also slipped while being teased by Alyana and Bubbles, while Romulo proudly told his friends about it as they went on their daily rounds around the community.
Well, it isn’t surprising if they fall in love with each other since both of them possess strong yet endearing personalities. They are both born leaders who can lead their group to victory with their intellect, determination, and capabilities, and at the same time have hearts of gold that are always ready to help those who are in need. Plus, they obviously got the looks and charm that are worth falling for.
