His death was too much to bear. Thinking that he was responsible for Rodrigo (TJ Trinidad), all he wanted to do was confess and help Rebecca (Iza Calzado). Unfortunately, in his attempt to save her life, Hernan (Christian Vasquez) gave up his. Losing a father and husband is something that no one ever wants to go through. So, instead of just mourning over Hernan, here are eight fatherly scenes to remember him by.
He tried to set a good example.
From the very beginning, Hernan was never after the Cortes fortune. He knew that all of that belonged to Rodrigo, the true heir, which is why he did not feel like he deserved it. Eventually, he moved out to a farm in the province. It was not easy to leave his family, but he hoped that this would set a good example for Inno (Joshua Garcia) and Oliver (Jameson Blake). Even though they lived apart, Hernan still met up with them and offered advice.
He was constantly worried about Oliver.
Whenever he would meet with Inno, Hernan would always ask how Oliver was doing. Unlike Stella (Alice Dixson), Hernan did not want to spoil Oliver. He was called Oliver out for rebelling. But there were also moments when he was truly proud of his eldest son. This only shows that he only had good intensions for being strict.
He felt apologetic for Inno.
Moving away meant that Inno would be the man of the house. All the responsibilities of running Cortes as well as looking after Stella and Oliver fell into Inno’s hands despite being the youngest. For this, Hernan felt sorry for passing over what should have been his role as the father. At the same time, he felt thankful that Inno understood.
He wanted them to be better than him.
Hernan knew that he had high expectations and was unfair. But he genuinely loved his family and wished for them to be happy together. At the end of the day, all he hoped was that they would not make the same mistakes he did.
