Remember the noble and selfless doctor named Dulce Silverio, played by Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa?
If we look back on the timeline of Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Los Bastardos, we may begin to realize that Dulce indeed belongs to the top list of characters who had a terribly drastic change in the show. Far from the twisted and wicked woman that she is now, we can remember how she was once a woman who is almost like an angel on earth because of her heart’s purity and her soul’s kindness.
Unlike other young girls who would beg not to go, she still went abroad to fulfill her ambition of becoming a great doctor. She chose to set aside the tight bond of friendship she had with her childhood friends Isay (Maxine Medina) and Isagani (Jake Cuenca), for the greater good. When she came back to their barrio, she continued to pursue her heart’s advocacy, which is to serve the sick people in their rural community. She conducted several medical missions and took on volunteering jobs for her hometown. And by possessing such admirable personality, Isagani who had a long term crush on her, courted her and had a sweet relationship with her. However, their relationship did not last.
When Lorenzo (Joseph Marco) came into the picture, Dulce fell for him. On the other hand, circumstances led Isagani to realize that Isay is the one who he truly loves. For a while, each of them was okay with how things turned out between them. But when things went wrong between her and Lorenzo, Dulce started to change. That time, she and Lorenzo always quarreled while Isay and Isagani’s relationship continued to prosper.
Aside from that, her remaining family, her adoptive father Don Menandro (Lito Pimentel) and her adoptive brother Matteo (Marco Gumabao) completely fell apart and suffered the consequences of their bad deeds. Lost and confused with no one to turn to in the midst of all the chaos that was happening in her life, Dulce pity-partied with Señora Catalina (Jean Saburit), who, unbeknownst to her, purposely arrived when she was at her lowest point in order for her to easily maneuver her by feeding her emotions. Through their constant meet-ups, the Dulce who once had a heart of gold transformed into a mad woman who is ready to kill anyone for her happiness – and that is all because of Catalina, who turned out to be her estranged biological mother.
Believing that Isay stole her happiness and seeing that killing her will bring Isagani, who she considers as her happiness, back to her, the awfully obsessed Dulce tried several times to kill the woman who she used to love like her true sister. From pulling a pretentious act that she cares and suggesting destructive ideas, to leaking their plans of running away from their families and attempting to poison Isay and seducing Isagani, Dulce unbelievably did all of those. After those failed plans, including trying to stop Isay and Isagani’s wedding, Dulce pestered their married life and still did not grow weary of trying to murder Isay.
Now that the show is coming to an end, will Dulce finally succeed? Or will Isay and Isagani’s love for each other be able to save them? Will Dulce have the chance for redemption despite her many crimes?
