After decades of absence, Belen (Rita Avila) showed up at her daughter Ellice (Iza Calzado)’s doors, bringing with her nothing but drama, lies, and viciously evil plans. It’s just been a few weeks since her shocking resurrection in the trending series Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin but she’s already stirring all the hate in the world. And we just rounded up the scenes that will convince you that Belen is the kontrabida who can make her enemies’ lives, and maybe that of her own daughter as well, a living nightmare.
Don’t we all hate guests who come to an event uninvited especially when it’s an intimate family gathering? Belen just did that on purpose. She said she wanted to get to know everyone especially her granddaughter, Hope (Kira Balinger). Besides, she can always use her relation to Ellice (Iza Calzado) as a ticket to make a scene.
We all know Belen has been a bad mom however she tries to act immaculate. A real kontrabida will never want to see anybody else taking on her throne, so the first plan is to kick Lucing (Maricel Soriano) out of Ellice’s home, and life.
The war between these two mothers would blast off with a series of intense confrontations. It was all argument and words of bitterness at first, with Belen taunting Lucing by digging up the past especially Marissa (Jodi Sta. Maria)’s betrayal, until it got physical.
In the middle of an intense confrontation with Lucing atop the stairs, Belen figured hurting herself a little is a sure way to win Ellice’s sympathy. She went so far as to falling from the stairs and make Lucing appear guilty of pushing her down.
The drama did not end there. After she pulled off that staged accident, Belen would play the victim card many times over. She said Lucing concealed the truth due to selfish motives. She completely won her daughter’s trust with the old aphorism, “Blood is thicker than water.”
The most effective villains are those who can give off a sinuous portrayal, those who can keep two faces just like Belen. She can keep the look of sorrow plastered on her face, then, smile in secret. When Caesar (Simon Ibarra) dropped by to visit, Belen easily switched to her real evil persona and cackled with laughter.
Belen had another surprise visitor in Carmelita (Cheska Inigo). Thinking the soft-spoken woman can be easily intimidated, she didn’t shy away from showing her true nature especially when Lucing’s name was brought up in the conversation. Talking about Ramon (Alvin Anson) and Sonya (Desiree Del Valle) ganging up on Ellice in the past, she vowed to never let anyone hurt her daughter again. There was also a scene where she tried to win Gabriel (Sam Milby)’s trust by thanking him for digging into her past and unveiling the truth in the process.
Belen knows her plans are working and she will not stop even at the expense of Ellice’s true happiness. She sees the cracks in Ellice’s marriage and family, a sign that her plans are effective. Taking advantage of the circumstances, she assured Ellice of her support and presence.
Watch Belen step up her wickedness in Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin, created by Dindo C. Perez and Julie Anne R. Benitez and directed by FM Reyes and Avel Sunpongco, airing every Monday to Friday on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z.
