The MarVel tandem of Marissa (Jodi Sta. Maria) and Avel (Joseph Marco) in Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin is giving us all the ‘feels’. While there’s been a recent shocking plot twist that made us doubt Avel’s loyalty, all it took was a love confession to keep the MarVel ship sailing. After all, he remains the knight-in-shining-armor who never stops saving her from grave danger, shown in these scenes from the hit drama series.
Just a quick refresher, Marissa hired Avel as her bodyguard. While he was quite mysterious, as though hiding something up his sleeve, he also showed impressive fighting abilities since the beginning. He served Marissa with solid loyalty and he was protective of her.
There was a time when Avel quickly rescued Marissa from an attack and fired at the gunman, keeping himself focused even after the world came to a stop when they exchanged meaningful kilig stares. He offered her his jacket, igniting teases from Tutti (Brenda Mage).
His fighting skills knocked down a group of clubgoers who tried to harass Marissa. The way he saved her was enough to keep us impressed. But the argument that followed charmed us all the more. Marissa scolded Avel for getting into trouble and all the damages left at the bar but we knew deep inside she’s relieved to have him around.
The dashing savior once disarmed a bomb while Marissa and the employees of La Sierra evacuate the building. Such is the length he is willing to go to protect his ‘madam.’ Marissa ran towards the hero as he came out of the building safe and uninjured. She was worried and close to touching him until she came to her senses. Marissa scolded Avel and walked inside the building but it was too late to remove the traces of concern she unknowingly displayed.
However, Avel’s true character was recently uncovered in a scene where he met with Caesar (Simon Ibarra) to plot Marissa’s death. Growing feelings for his boss, he wanted to back out but he knows leaving the organization will thwart his secret motive to investigate his parents’ murder. At the last minute, Avel made an important decision and chose to still save Marissa from the car explosion plotted to end her life. He quickly left the crime scene and managed to tend to his own wounds.
In the next scene, Avel secretly arrived at the hospital to ensure Marissa’s safety, just in time to save her from Red (Manuel Chua), who managed to flee. He patiently explained his side to soothe Marissa’s anger. He explained what happened and his real intentions of joining the organization. Most of all, he made a lofty confession, telling Marissa that he’s in love with her.
How will Avel escape the consequences of walking out of the organization to follow his heart?
