As the plot thickens in Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin, Team Ellice (Iza Calzado) and Team Marissa (Jodi Sta. Maria) are ready to fight for their bet. In this Kapamilya Toplist, we’re taking the spotlight on Adelina (Carla Martinez), the mafia leader who treats Marissa like her own daughter and always got her back.
Their meeting seemed purely a coincidence when the Adelina put up a charity drive in the facility where Marissa was detained. But, a fellow detainee pointed Marissa to Adelina, who said she’s heard a lot about the scorned woman. The succeeding events would reveal that their encounter was planned.
In a shocking twist, Adelina’s connection to Marissa and Ellice can be traced back to the night of a mortal sin that changed the course of their lives. She revealed that she is the mother of Victor (Albie Casino), the political scion who Ellice accidentally killed while defending herself from his aggressive advances.
Just like Marissa, she also despised Ellice for “murdering” her son. The shared passion would solidify their pact to push Ellice into the dark abyss of suffering. Marissa hates Ellice for her misery behind bars while Adelina blames the queen of Cenidoza Pearls for the pain of losing a child.
Therefore, it’s always easy for Marissa to get Adelina’s support in her plans – whether it’s about destroying the Cenidoza Pearls or a more personal vendetta. Adelina was easily convinced to invest at Cenidoza Pearls when Marissa was in there scheming everyone else, confident that her ‘bet’ is too wise to be outsmarted.
To prove her motherly concern, Adelina quickly ordered Marissa to escape their enemies’ evil game plan. The warning, however, came in too late. Marissa’s son, Baby Jacob, died of a gunshot wound and she had to go into hiding for seventeen years.
When Marissa resurfaced after hiding in Indonesia, she knew someone would be happy to see her. She met with Adelina who never for a moment forgot about their promises to each other. Adelina said she refrained from keeping in touch with Marissa to keep the enemies from tracing her whereabouts.
By the time Marissa came back, Adelina was already out of the organization. But, she still has all the resources to achieve the revenge they both need from Ellice and Caesar (Simon Ibarra).
Another sign of Adelina’s motherly concern towards Marissa is her promise that they’d work together against their common enemies. She helped her threaten Caesar by issuing him a warning first. Then, she taught her to take advantage of his weakness – his wife and family.
Marissa’s secrets are always safe with Adelina, even the truth about Jake (Grae Fernandez) being his adopted son. In the recent turn of events, Adelina once again proved that she got Marissa’s back by trying to help her solve Lucing (Maricel Soriano)’s case.
Adelina will surely play her part in the intense rivalry between Marissa and Ellice. Better not miss an episode of 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 Channel 11.
