While viewers thought that Marissa (Jodi Sta. Maria)’s only adversary is her erstwhile best friend, Ellice (Iza Calzado), the cunning Ceasar (Simon Ibarra) entered the show to stir troubles and spy on her plans.
In this Kapamilya Toplist, we rounded up the scenes showing Marissa and Cesar’s silent rivalry over the mafia’s leadership and the latter rejoicing over her failures in Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin.
Ceasar was once heard saying that Marissa is the biggest obstruction to getting to the top of the syndicate group where they both belong to. But he’s too scared to touch her, knowing that she’s the boss’ favorite. Thus, he works with his underhanded tactics and secretly celebrates Marissa’s failures and blunders.
There was a flashback scene that revealed the root of Blue (Nico Antonio)’s devotion to Marissa. Apparently, she saved him from Ceasar’s punishment after having been caught stealing money from the group. Marissa, owning up to the crime she didn’t commit, was on the receiving end of Madam Adelina (Carla Martinez)’s backlash. It satisfied Ceasar to bits.
Since entering Cenidoza Pearls, Ceasar has become that annoying henchman spying on Marissa and committed to taunting her, with sarcasm as one of his biggest weapons. He never gets tired of reminding her about using the organization’s money to buy her shares in Cenidoza Pearls, as though trying to stir pressure.
Ceasar targets Marissa’s weakness – her feelings for Gabriel (Sam Milby) – to keep her distracted as her defeat equates to his victory. ““Si Madam Adelina, ikatuwa kaya niya na ang alaga niya ay delikado dahil pumapag-ibig ng bawal,” he warned Marissa. He reported about Marissa’s “side jobs” to their boss, Adelina, in an attempt to taint her reputation.
None of those worked until Adelina herself noticed the threats. Ceasar celebrated when Adelina made her way to the Cenidoza Pearls, taking it as a sign that the boss is starting to have qualms about Marissa’s works. The fear and tension in Marissa’s eyes got Ceasar grinning from ear to ear.
He took it as a fuel to exacerbate the looming troubles around Marissa. “Baka kailangan mo ng kape para nerbyusin ka kahit kaunti? Unahin mo ang organisasyon bago sa kalandian mo. Kapag nalaman ‘to ni Madam, kawawa ka naman. Baka matulad ka sa double-dead na baboy,” he threatened Marissa.
However, tables turned when Ceasar’s reckless act of orchestrating Ellice (Iza Calzado)’s accident backfired, putting him at the eye of Adelina’s rage.
