Ever since the beginning of Bagong Umaga, we already knew how villainous and cunning Cai Verdona is, the interesting character impeccably played by versatile young actress Barbie Imperial. Thus, we probably couldn’t help but love to hate her with how a great antagonist she is.
And just like other kontrabidas we’ve known, we are also able to witness her gradual transformation from evil to good, as well as find out what compelled her to behave the way she did and to execute her wicked schemes.
As we bid farewell to Cai after her unforeseen death, let us take a look back on 10 of her top villain moments in Kapamilya Toplist video.
Prior to mustering the courage to make amends with Tisay (Heaven Peralejo) by confessing to her the wrongful things she did and her connivance with the scheming Diana (Glydel Mercado), avid viewers of the afternoon soap opera are well-aware how much Cai despised Tisay.
She would do anything to outdo Tisay – from trying to take away the affection of Ely (Tony Labrusca) and their families up to tainting her reputation by making her appear bad – and would always pick a fight with her that sometimes ensue to physical altercations.
There were also instances when Cai went against her mom Maggie (Sunshine Cruz) and her dad Ian (Cris), especially when she found that they are actually not her parents since she and Tisay were intentionally switched at birth by the vengeful Diana. Even though they reminded her a number of times that the truth would never change their love for her, she still refused to believe since she had been continuously trying to win their affection according to her. The same went for her relationship with her biological parents Jose (Keempee De Leon) and Monica (Nikki Valdez).
Besides, some of us were surely irked with how Cai would sometimes play the victim, act as if she’s so innocent, and ignite the fight among the other characters. But at the same time, we also found the way she bravely clapped back Diana in one of their encounters after the latter refused to help her exact revenge against Tisay, who they both considered as their enemy.
Are they going to find out the truth behind Cai’s death? Let’s all find out by not missing the remaining episodes of Bagong Umaga, weekdays after It’s Showtime on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live and A2Z Channel 11.
