The nights get more exciting as Marissa (Jodi Sta. Maria)’s cunning acts of vengeance against her ‘best friend’ Ellice (Iza Calzado) heats up in the Kapamilya series Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin. While the plot continues to thicken and conflict intensifies, here’s a Toplist dedicated to the times when Marissa was still willing (but later on simply forced) to make sacrifices for Ellice.
The story established Marissa and Ellice’s unbreakable bond that took a sudden turn when the latter accidentally killed a Congressman’s son out self-defense. That mortal sin would later shake up their worlds; especially that of Marissa, who volunteered to take the offense out of genuine love for her best friend. She also held on to Jorge (Lito Pimentel)’s promise of financial support and immediate release from detainment.
At that time, Marissa was genuinely concerned about Ellice’s future and her plans to study abroad. She didn’t want Ellice to just let go of that golden opportunity. And she thought she’s strong enough to endure the struggles behind bars than Ellice who comes from a well-to-do family.
Marissa even told Ellice not to worry as the latter dropped by in jail to say her goodbye. That moment was drenched in emotions mainly of love, compassion, and guilt. They promised that no matter what happens, they will keep in touch.
But Jorge failed to honor the agreement, unable to keep up with the other camp’s social powers. This led to Marissa’s extended jeopardy, of more than a decade of misery. She has suffered from torture and even sexual assault while in jail, though she would soon learn to stand up for herself. The halted communication with Ellice, Jorge, and her Nanay Lucing (Maricel Soriano) aggravated her agony. While Marissa was suffering, Ellice found a good life in the States and got married to Gabriel (Sam Milby).
As the years went by, Marissa’s love for Ellice turned to hatred. She vowed to recover from her miserable life and take everything that belongs to Ellice, embittered and full of regret over her decision to pay for her best friend’s crime.
In the recent events, Marissa got the ball rolling en route to her desired vengeance. Don’t miss an episode of Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin on Kapamilya Channel and Kapamilya Online Live.
