Revenge has just gotten more cunning and quietly dangerous as Marissa (Jodi Sta. Maria) moves further in her schemes. After securing a spot in Ellice (Iza Calzado)’s Cenidoza Pearls, the vengeful woman’s next act is to take Gabriel (Sam Milby) from her former best friend. And as she continues to hatch the betrayal, Gabriel seems completely lured. In this Toplist, we rounded up the moments when Gabriel took the bait and prioritized Marissa over Ellice.
Gabriel ran to Marissa’s rescue when she phoned him up feigning fear in her voice and acting in need of help from her abusive boyfriend. He always feels weak over her pleas. He took the glass of wine from her and the toxicity lead to an intimate one night stand. Gabriel was clueless that Marissa thought she won a point.
Tension brewed up when Marissa got pregnant and Gabriel assumed that he was the father. He bought her denial, although he remained attached to the unborn child, and the mother.
In Marissa’s perspective, she knew she had the upper hand. In desperate times, she can easily wrap Gabriel around her fingers. She secretly loves it when Gabriel would argue about his possible relationship to the child and take care of her because of this suspicion. A scene in this Toplist shows Marissa rejoicing behind closed doors when Gabriel dropped by her office and handed her a bag of sandwich.
The game got more exciting for Marissa when Ellice invited her to live in the Villarosa residence. Marissa had the viewers gawking at her scheming drama when she pretended to suffer from morning sickness. She took advantage of Gabriel’s concern and melted in his arms, acting dizzy. He was completely deceived.
When Marissa and Ellice gave birth at the same time in the same hospital, Gabriel chose to be by Marissa’s side at her pleas. Meanwhile, his legal wife underwent an operation to save the baby.
Gabriel seems completely charmed by Marissa’s Baby Jacob. He loves seeing him at the office. He even took care of the child while Marissa was out for a meeting. And when Marissa pretended in need of chaperone for Baby Jacob’s check-up, Gabriel once again took the “paawa” effect.
Even while his own daughter was there, Gabriel showed a different kind of compassion towards Baby Jacob. Ending this montage is the scene wherein Gabriel played with Baby Jacob and expressed how much he missed him, in front of his own family.
Gabriel is without a doubt falling for Marissa’s schemes. The plot thickens, so don’t miss an episode of Ang Sa Iyo ay Akin on Kapamilya Channel and Kapamilya Online Live.
