Love experts say that infidelity can start anywhere, even in a work setting, and that the worst kind is when the cheating pair forms an emotional connection. Watching two people commit a mortal sin in the form of adultery is undoubtedly infuriating. Thus, viewers of FPJ’s Batang Quiapo can feel their blood boil over Lena (Mercedes Cabral) and Rigor (John Estrada)’s illicit affair. Recall how it all started via this Kapamilya Update video.
You know what they say about alcohol and hidden motives: “’Pag may alak, may balak.” Lena invited a very stressed-out Rigor to a drinking session. In their conversation over booze, she somewhat persuaded him about the complexities of married life and dealing with in-laws, as if saying there’s a less complicated life if he only knows what to choose. She promised to always be there to listen and asked him to drink more to forget about his problems. The next thing he knew, he was in a motel room with Lena, who failed to control her desires and kissed him on the lips.
Rigor looked at it as just a one-night stand and said it was no big deal, at first. However, Lena subtly levelled up her flirting game. She knew that the most effective way to win an egotistical guy like Rigor is to inflate his ego, make him feel like he’s the best man in the world.
She would offer everything that would make him feel good. She would praise him a lot, especially when facing troubles at work. Lena offered to help Rigor request for reinstatement by writing a position letter. Since the office was off-limits to Rigor, Lena thought of bringing him to her house. There must be something special about her ‘adobo’ that Rigor failed to stop himself from kissing her, leading to intimacy.
She worried a lot when Rigor got shot in an encounter, to the point of pushing the legal wife, Marites (Cherry Pie Picache), away. And when he was reinstated, she made the effort to prepare a welcome party for him in the office.
Even if he was aware of the wrongful possibilities, Rigor continued to treat Lena as his confidante and visit her at home to talk about his problems over bottles of alcohol. He didn’t even feel guilty when he started to kiss Lena, but instead, he willingly gave in as she led the way to her room.
We know you can’t wait to see this cheating pair get punished for their sins. So, don’t miss an episode of FPJ’s Batang Quiapo, weeknights on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, TV5, and A2Z.
