The unfathomable pain and distress of sibling rivalry combined with betrayal surely made Dana (Yam Concepcion) and Jia (Kim Chiu)’s story into a remarkable drama extravaganza in Philippine TV. As we come close to the upcoming Love Thy Woman finale, here is a Kapamilya Toplist rounding up the most ‘gigil’-inducing, intense confrontations between the two feisty women. Are you on Team Dana or Team Jia?
Contrary to their current rioting, Dana and Jia used to have a sweet sisterhood despite their mothers’ feud. But the camaraderie turned history when Jia shared an illicit affair with Dana’s husband David (Xian Lim) all the while the older Wong was in comatose.
The fire was ignited when Adam gathered his two daughters, giving Jia the rightful moment to confess her mortal sin. But the betrayed wife, of course, didn’t like the news. Dana turned completely violent as she slapped Dana, pulled her hair, and called her names.
The next round of confrontation would have to be more riveting and immersive. Dana gave Jia a taste of her blazing wrath in the trending restroom argument scene. Dana crushed the offender with jaw-breaking slaps and castigating punches until Jia helplessly begged the mad legal wife to stop the torture. Viewers shared the same satisfaction with the vengeful Dana.
The succeeding revelations fanned the war even more. Dana discovered that Jia and David had a child from the shared illicit affair, leading to an explosive female brawl. Dana’s fury might have gone overboard but that’s the only way she could release the pain.
Michael (JJ Quilantang)’s presence added a layer of conflict. They would later on discover the reasons behind the child’s puzzling effect in their relationship. In that scene wherein Jia saved Michael from drowning in the pool, it was she who initiated the slapping match. Dana did not raise the white flag, of course. But she was a bit tamed at that time, using her ruthless tongue as her weapon.
To make it worse, the truth about Michael’s identity was revealed. Jia discovered that Michael is her son and that Dana knew along, bringing them to another round of all-out clash with a piece of cake.
The heated arguments extend to their workplace as Dana dragged Jia’s company to bankruptcy. She would also try to let go of the Dragon Empire Builders before it falls under Jia’s hands, at the expense of the employees. Add to this list that moment when Jia threatened to wipe up Dana’s face with a mop.
