After all the brokenness and scars, maybe it’s about time Lena (Erich Gonzales) receives the love she truly deserves. When it comes to her romantic life, her best friend Jordan (Carlo Aquino) is a strong candidate for the many times he’s proven his loyalty to her. In turn, she seems more than ready to reciprocate his feelings. Witness their budding romance in this Kapamilya Toplist of scenes from the revenge-drama series La Vida Lena.
Genuinely in love, Jordan will make all kinds of sacrifices to help in Lena’s pursuit for justice. Using himself as bait, he infiltrated the enemies’ territory all because he loves her – more than his own life, he said. His choice of cards, however, didn’t sit well with Lena who felt betrayed and abandoned. It led to a deeply crushing “friendship breakup.”
The wounds eventually healed. After all, their friendship is planted in organic affection that can't be uprooted by even the harshest storms. They would fight in different ways. Jordan is more discreet while Lena clashes with the Narcisos head-on. What matters is they share the same goal. In a scene, Lena slipped about wanting to end the war so they could get some breathing space. Jordan asked what that meant. She kept silent. Although he didn’t get an answer, he was able to read her mind. Then, the night sky witnessed their first kiss.
The next scene showed Jordan rushing to the hospital as Lena and Lukas (Raymond Bagatsing) got into a car accident. He dashed toward Lena and embraced her, relieved that she’s fine.
At the Narciso mansion, as Lena gave a rundown of her plans on Vanessa (Agot Isidro) and the Narcisos’ downfall, Jordan chose to respond with light-heartedness. Then Lena calmed down. That’s how he’s always been. He pacifies her, makes her smile, and reminds her that she’s always been beautiful. He saw past her flaws. He finds her breathtaking whether she’s the scarred barrio lass Magda or the fiercer Lena,
While they were in fancy restaurant for a date, they reminisced their childhood and the simple joy eating in Digna (Ruby Ruiz)’s store. So he brought her back to the good old days by going on a street-food date. For the first time in a while, Lena felt child-like and free. The ‘slow-mo’ moment finally happened again. She felt his effect on her and it was more palpable than before. In turn, Jordan saw stars as Lena smiled, gazing at the beauty that was in front of him.
In the succeeding scene, Lena expressed appreciation for Jordan’s effort. She can see her future with him. But for now, love has to take a back seat. In turn, Jordan promised to wait.
