They say that nothing comes more powerful than a woman’s instinct. But when triggered on purpose, the subtle messages about something off turn into fear and borderline paranoia. Such was the case of Ellice (Iza Calzado) who kept on accusing her husband of cheating, clueless that Marissa (Jodi Sta. Maria) was simply manipulating her into believing so by taking advantage of her vulnerability. Look back on the scenes of Ellice trying to catch Gabriel (Sam Milby)’s alleged illicit affairs in Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin.
While she had all the reasons to be suspicious of Marissa’s closeness with Gabriel, the poor Ellice ended up looking desperate when she confronted her erstwhile best friend about the issue. She thought Marissa was seducing Gabriel. Of course, the devious Marissa feigned frustration and guilt-tripped Ellice, thus making the mad legal wife appear pathetic.
Later on, another woman entered the picture. She’s none other than Meredith (Loren Burgos), the seductive Cenidoza Pearls new Marketing Consultant who was obviously attracted to Gabriel. And as Meredith became a threat to Marissa, the latter made a way to oust her from the company by making up stories about her alleged effort to flirt with Gabriel.
Ellice would listen to Marissa’s lies feeding her mind with doubts about Meredith’s connections to Gabriel. The paranoid wife would then begin to spot pieces of evidence. She’d smell a woman’s scent on Gabriel’s clothes and find a heart locket inside his pockets. She’d also read a suspicious text message from an unknown sender on Gabriel’s phone.
Later on, inside the ladies’ room at the Cenidoza Pearls, Ellice would recognize the smell of Meredith’s perfume. She secretly dialed the number and watched in disbelief as Meredith’s phone rang. That would complete the equation.
Ellice confronted Meredith for trying to seduce her husband. A series of heated arguments ensued in the office and even in a public place. Ellice threatened to fire Meredith from her post. But that didn’t happen as Meredith herself penned her resignation.
While Ellice was dealing with all the hullaballoos concerning her husband’s alleged philandering, Marissa was watching in silence and with complete satisfaction. The ‘praning’ wife often turned to Marissa for advice, clueless that she was choosing to believe the wrong woman who orchestrated all shreds of evidence against Meredith.
However, the unwarranted jealousy didn’t stop there as Agatha (Aya Fernandez) stirred up more conflict in Ellice and Gabriel’s marriage, exacerbated by Marissa’s schemes of course. Marissa cooked up a plan to aggravate Ellice’s paranoia using Agatha. Livid, Ellice stormed into a restaurant and caught an intoxicated Agatha smothering Gabriel.
Now that she has discovered Gabriel and Marissa’s betrayal, will Ellice finally learn who the real enemy is? Don’t miss an episode of Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin on Kapamilya Channel and Kapamilya Online Live.
