Consumed by bitterness and vengeance, Marissa (Jodi Sta. Maria) orchestrates elaborate plans to bring Ellice (Iza Calzado) destruction and take everything from her including Gabriel (Sam Milby). And while she keeps her act clean and she feigns goodness in front of everybody, there remains someone who sees the truth behind the mask she wears. It’s none other than Lucing (Maricel Soriano), her mother who openly condemns her vicious acts, shown in these scenes from Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin.
Even before the truth bomb was dropped, Lucing’s motherly instinct was on fire as she had an inkling about Marissa’s ulterior motive. Despite the denial, she could sense that Marissa has something up her sleeve. Lucing knew that Marissa was trying to compete with Gabriel’s attention and time using Baby Jacob, so she had many times reprimanded her daughter about this.
There was a scene where Lucing confronted Marissa for causing rift in Ellice and Gabriel’s union by taking the married man’s company for Baby Jacob’s doctor’s visit even if his own daughter was in a life-threatening situation at the same time. “Bakit ba ipinagduduldulan mo ang sarili mo sa Gabriel na ‘yun,” Lucing asked her attention-seeking daughter.
As she slowly read Marissa’s actions coinciding with Ellice’s marital woes, Lucing had a hint about Baby Jacob’s father. She demanded an answer from Marissa, just a confirmation of her hunches that the child is Gabriel’s son. “Kahit ilang beses kang magsinungaling, malalaman at malalaman ko pa rin ang totoo,” Lucing told Marissa matched with a jaw-breaking slap.
Lucing castigated Marissa’s actions that are driving her into a ruthless woman. She was hurt by the betrayal because Ellice’s misery would also pain her. More importantly, she wanted to save her daughter from further wickedness.
However, Lucing failed in her attempt to enlighten Marissa as the latter still continued to win Gabriel’s affection despite the warning. In a recent scene, she abhorred Marissa hosting a dinner for Gabriel instead of sending him home to his wife. When confronted about it, Marissa denied her mother’s accusation and stressed that she was simply returning the favor.
But no amount of lies and denial can erase Lucing’s wisdom. She sees beyond her daughter’s pretensions, so she issued her a warning. “Gumagawa ka ng paraan para maghiwalay ang mag-asawa. Pero ito lang ang pinapangako ko sa’yo, hindi hihiwalayan ni Gabriel si Ellice,” she declared.
Marissa vows that no one can break her evil plans, not even Lucing, the mother who ought to be the voice of reason in her life. Watch out for more of her explosive actions in the next episodes of Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin, weeknights on Kapamilya Channel and Kapamilya Online Live.
