Among the plethora of good words to describe a parent’s love, selfless and unconditional are two of the most used because they truly are our heroes and biggest fans. Teddie (Joel Torre) and Virgie (Shamaine Buencamino) depict the magnitude of sacrifices parents can endure for their kids. And even if they are gone, they sure left a lasting legacy as parents, for their love towards Alyana (Yassi Pressman) and JP (McCoy de Leon) made living worthwhile. Relive Teddy and Virgie’s memories with their children via this Kapamilya Toplist from FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
Teddy and Virgie are their children’s biggest supporters and influence, so much so Alyana followed her father’s footsteps as a journalist. While the journey to her dreams entailed distance and a whole lot of sacrifices, her parents never lacked encouragement. They were on the frontline while Alyana and JP chase their dreams, making sure that their paths are cleared from obstacles.
They were proud of Alyana, always – from the time she decided to pursue journalism as means of public service, to her studies abroad, until she became one of the country’s most respected reporters. They are as proud of JP, the ‘bunso’ who brings them happy vibes and is good in sports.
While they speak different love languages, Teddy and Virgie share the same wish to always keep their children safe. They asked Alyana to change beat from police/crime to lifestyle, hoping it’d make her safer, although she stood by her choices. When JP was abducted, Teddy and Virgie were willing to give up their own lives if it means saving JP from harm.
Because of Teddy and Virgie’s example, their family was raised strong and close-knit. They don’t shy away from showing affection even through kisses and hugs, and their love for each other would extend to their kids, whose closeness will make other siblings feel envious.
They even loved to talk about Alyana and Cardo (Coco Martin)’s then-budding romance, proving that her joy is also their happiness. While they were protective of their daughter, they didn’t stop Alyana from loving Cardo despite the risks. When the couple went through marital problems, Teddy and Virgie were there to feed Alyana with words of wisdom and encouragement.
We will never forget the day Alyana introduced Cardo to her family after he saved her from a notorious killer. Teddy and Virgie welcomed Cardo while JP kept on teasing his sister. There was also a cute scene wherein Alyana noticed that her father was a bit jealous of Cardo.
When Alyana served time together with the Vendetta, Teddy and Virgie expressed how proud they are of their daughter, for not everyone has the grit and willingness to fight for the country.
The couple may be gone but their legacy lies in the stories they left behind – them as parents and Teddy as a journalist.
With death comes grief, anger, and hopelessness. How will Cardo and the Task Force Agila recover from a devastating chapter of loses and defeat? Don’t miss an episode of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z.
