The life of stalwart cop Cardo Dalisay has been full of heart-stopping action. But there are also moments of heartache and loss. Through this Toplist from FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, let’s relive the heart-breaking events in Cardo’s journey that shattered his tough facade and made us all cry.
Reunions are always emotional especially when there are hard feelings left unhealed. That’s how it went for Cardo and Lola Flora (Susan Roces) when they finally saw each other again after decades. Cardo dropped the emotional baggage he carried for long. All those years of growing up alone, he thought Lola Flora deserted him and chose just his twin brother Ador. She soothed his bitterness with loving, assuring words, explaining the reason behind her decisions in the past.
For Cardo, family is his reason for living so there’s nothing quite like the pain of seeing a loved one in trouble. Remember that incident when the family was having a grand birthday celebration for Lolo Delfin (Jaime Fabregas) but a gunman shot him down, halting the party and putting his life in danger. Cardo begged the heavens to keep his grandfather alive.
Cardo’s world came crashing down when his child Ricky Boy was killed in a bombing incident. Just as when he and wife Alyana (Yassi Pressman) were beginning to build a peaceful and happier life, the future suddenly turned into a blur. It was like the ultimate tragedy in his life that apart from the excruciating grief, anger, emptiness, and hopelessness consumed him for a time.
He was reminded of that painful situation when he witnessed Lena (Yam Concepcion) and her child succumb to the bullets of the military forces during an encounter. They were the family of Romulo (Lito Lapid), leader of Pulang Araw, the group that Cardo joined in for an undercover mission.
Cardo also had his moments of defeat in the realm of love. The long months of absence due to his mission with the Pulang Araw brought his marriage with Alyana on the rocks. There was terrible pain in his eyes in that scene where he witnessed Marco (JC Santos)’s romantic proposal to Alyana. With a deeply wounded heart, Cardo took the risk and showed up at the venue. On bended knees, he begged Alyana for a second chance and made the viewers cry with his tearful pleas.
The couple survived those trying times and every trial that followed. But the most heartbreaking event in Cardo’s life is losing his wife – the only woman he loved. It’s the kind of pain no one could ever prepare for.
Cardo almost lost the will to live when he regained consciousness after the shootout with the Black Ops and realized the room is empty. The love of his life wasn’t in there. Flashbacks of the tragic crossfire began to haunt him. That’s when he started looking for Alyana, although scared to know the answer.
Coco showcased his gift for tearjerker acting when he went berserk looking for his wife. It got more piercing when he saw Alyana’s lifeless body for the first time. The bereaved husband burst into tears and he couldn’t seem to stop crying, staring up into the heavens, reliving their promises and dreams now left broken.
