Political drama Asintado depicted Ana’s (Julia Montes) journey in attaining justice by taking down the corrupt government official Salvador Del Mundo (Nonie Buencamino). We followed her through it all and cheered her on when she prospered in her fight against Salvador and sympathized with her when she is defeated, most especially when a close ally or a loved one is killed.
As Asintado is down to its final episodes this week, let us look back at those tearjerking death scenes, wherein we said goodbye to those characters who fought the good fight in this Kapamilya Toplist:
1. Celeste’s men
Before Ana joined Xander’s (Aljur Abrenica) group, Celeste (Cherry Pie Picache) first led a small team to gather evidence against Salvador. She had three men working with her and one of them was Ana’s biological father, Robert Ramirez (Luis Alandy). While they were on the job, Salvador’s minions ambushed and killed two of Celeste’s men.
2. Robert and Criselda Ramirez
Because Robert is part of Celeste’s intelligence group, Salvador had to kill him. Salvador’s men burned down Robert’s house, killing him and wife Criselda (Tanya Garcia). As a heartbreaking result, young Ana/Juliana and Samantha/Katrina became orphans.
3. Senator Martin Reynoso
Senator Martin Reynoso (Teroy Guzman) was the only one who had the guts to fight Salvador publicly. And because he won’t stop exposing Salvador’s evil deeds, Sen. Martin was shot to death by Salvador’s men.
4. Vicente Dimasalang
Ana’s adoptive father Vicente (Lito Pimentel) had done nothing but to love and protect his family. And when Ana’s life was in danger because of what she discovered, Vicente sacrificed his life to save Ana from Salvador’s men.
5. Rowena Barrios
Rowena (Hannah Ledesma) was the journalist who almost became a solid witness to Salvador’s two-faced personality. She almost uncovered Salvador’s lies but killed by a henchman of Salvador at a hospital where she was recovering.
6. Celeste “Ms. C” Ramos
From the very beginning, it was Celeste who first stepped up to expose Salvador’s crimes in the political field. Having her second team by her side she became closer into finally having the truth exposed, but was also slain before getting justice.
7. Tatay M’s Family
Jaime Melchor/Manuel de Dios or simply Tatay M (Julio Diaz) was one of the strong pillars of Celeste’s team. With everything he has done for the team, we came to know the reason why he fought: his family’s heart shattering death in front of his own eyes.
8. Monalisa “Mona” Calata
Mona (Empress Schuck) was a close ally of Ana and Xander, and while they were hunted, Salvador’s underling riddled her with bullets and lost her life.
9. Ramoncito “Chito” Salazar
Also a close ally of Ana and Xander, Chito (Arron Villaflor) was captured by Salvador’s men, tortured and left to die in an abandoned place.
10. Samantha’s Baby
Although this death was not done intentionally by Salvador, he somehow became part of Samantha’s (Shaina Magdayao) emotional stress during her pregnancy and this affected the baby. It was indeed a heart-breaking scene as Samantha grieved for her daughter.
11. Gael Ojeda
Salvador ordered his men to kill Ana and Samantha. But when he learned that Gael (Paulo Avelino) is with them, it was too late for him to stop the crime. Inadvertently, Salvador’s men killed his son.
12. Miranda Ojeda
Salvador murdered the one woman who had been his partner in crime. After turning her back on Salvador, Miranda (Lorna Tolentino) got hit by the vehicle Salvador was driving in order to save Ana and her grandchild.
