Like a precious pearl produced from an ‘injury,’ Ellice (Iza Calzado), the owner of Cenidoza Pearls, has gone through a lot of heartbreaks as well. In this Kapamilya Toplist, we rounded up the scenes that showed how Ellice suffered from a series of pain and losses in Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin.
Not a lot know and remember that Ellice had to endure the crippling effects of depression in the United States. She almost gave up on life, thinking there are no reasons to keep going. Thanks to Gabriel (Sam Milby), she recovered from that darkest point in her life and eventually started anew with him.
However, the tests did not come to an end. It turns out that her love for Gabriel would bring her endless agony. She would be viciously shamed by the Villarosa patriarch Ramon (Alvin Anson) and the brood’s eldest, Sonya (Desiree Del Valle) for struggling to fall pregnant. The harsh comments would add to her frustrations and misery.
Ellice finally got pregnant after a long time trying. However, the good news will not last long due to her former best friend Marissa (Jodi Sta. Maria)’s schemes. Through her underhanded tactics, Marissa managed to obstruct one of Cenidoza Pearls’ important shipments, forcing Ellice to be in control despite her high-risk pregnancy. Unfortunately, the heavy task coupled with stress caused yet another miscarriage.
Ellice wept helplessly on her hospital bed when Ramon lambasted her instead of sympathizing with her loss. Gabriel came to his wife’s defense and argued with his father, saying the frustrations Ramon felt over the end of the Villarosa lineage can’t compare to the pain they feel for losing another child. Thankfully, Gabriel has always been there to soothe Ellice’s heightened emotions. He said they are a team.
However, it did not take long until Ellice found out Gabriel’s moral sin that broke her heart into pieces. She unearthed her husband and her erstwhile best friend’s betrayal. Ellice dissolved into tears upon confirmation that Marissa’s child, Baby Jacob, is Gabriel’s.
She confronted Gabriel and demanded the truth from him. Yet, he chose to lie about his relation to Jacob, forcing Ellice to reveal what she knew and unleash her wrath through a jaw-breaking slap. But of course, that wasn’t enough to wash her anger down.
The anguish heightened when Ellice found out that Lucing (Maricel Soriano) knew all along. Her world completely fell apart. She didn’t know who to trust anymore.
The situation changed when it was Ellice’s turn to beg for Lucing’s forgiveness for concealing the truth about the crime that led up to Marissa’s torturous life behind bars. She was down on her knees, owning up to her mistake of dishonesty but telling Lucing that she didn’t intend to push Marissa into great tribulations.
These ‘tragedies’ might have caused Ellice too much pain and suffering but they have no doubt made her stronger. Now, she’s more than ready to fight all over again, so don’t miss the start of Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin Book 2 on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z Channel.
