Asintado provides the Kapamilya audiences a different take on afternoon narrative through the fiery clashes of its main characters-slash-sisters Ana Dimasalang and Samantha del Mundo, portrayed by Julia Montes and Shaina Magdayao respectively, who are stiff rivals for Gael’s (Paulo Avelino) love and attention.
Apart from that, they also found themselves involved in the political melee as Ana and her newfound allies seek justice for their loved ones assassinated by Salvador (Nonie Buencamino), the adoptive father of Samantha.
In order to successfully accomplish their mission of finding out the heinous plans and shenanigans of the notorious politician, their squad tried to use the identity of the demised hospital heiress Stella Dela Torre-Guerrero, the ex-wife of Xander (Aljur Abrenica), with Ana as the player.
This act might be short-lived, but it massively bestowed us remarkable sizzling scenes that got us hooked with the afternoon series and yearn for more scorching scenes between the fake Stella and Samantha.
Who would forget the incessant probing of the antagonistic Samantha as she finds loopholes of the mysterious lady everytime they meet. From defaming Stella because of her ready-to-wear gown and fake jewelry and insulting her by gifting her an authentic diamond necklace, to calling her out for wearing the polo shirt of her husband, the aggressive kontrabida would do anything just to know the truth and unravel her enemy’s true identity.
But she had found a match in Stella, who was not the type of girl to easily surrender and fight for what she knows is right and as long as she can. She even compared herself to a diamond – unbreakable and can cut like a knife!
