Handsome looks, admirable personality, and good disposition in life.
It is said that guys possessing these endearing qualities are actually have gone instinct. Thus, many of us believe that being able to find a partner who has these ideal characteristics is already impossible.
However, there’s one woman who would surely beg to disagree as she wonderfully met someone who bears the qualities she’s looking for in a man who she wanted to spend the rest of her life with. Despite admitting that she is emotionally unstable and carries a lot of angst, the dashing and kind-hearted Drei Montelibano (Tony Labrusca) still chose the bold and beautiful Juris Agoncillo (Bela Padilla) to be his better half in the primetime crime and drama series Sino Ang Maysala? Mea Culpa.
Starting out as friends and being in a relationship for a very long time, Drei has been so sure that Juris is indeed the one to whom he wanted to get tied with as long as he lives. They’re in the same field and probably share the same interests, so they had already developed a deep understanding of each other’s behaviors and attitudes. They also have quarrels just like any couple does, especially when Juris insisted to take with them the baby they saw after the freak accident they got involved in, but he chose to simply understand her and go on with life together.
However, their beautiful affair started to gradually change when Fina Baniaga (Jodi Sta. Maria) came into the picture to find her long-lost daughter Joy, who her new family fondly calls Leyna (Iyannah Sumalpong), which totally drove Juris crazy. Their once peaceful life got shaken and the formerly optimistic and straitlaced woman got disturbed and went deranged as she aggressively fights for her right to keep the child she nurtured and considered as her own.
Juris did anything she could just to protect Leyna from her biological mother and to get rid of Fina – from simple evil schemes to the unimaginable and deadly plans – and all of those were supported by Drei. Amidst her intense anxiety attacks, violent actions, and irrational perspectives, not to mention discovering her connection with the crimes and death of the people around them, he still chose to understand and tolerate her. He stayed by her side and encouraged her to beat her illness just like how she did in the past and at the same time help her get back to her sanity.
Aside from that, Drei’s love for his wife also often got him into various altercations with his mom Matilda (Ayen Munji-Laurel) as she highly dislikes Juris for her son. Her controversial past and dark secrets at present are totally straining her relationship with her son and their reputation towards the public, which is a nightmare for her since they are both political figures.
Indeed, Drei has been blinded by his love for his wife as he’s willing to sacrifice himself just for the sake of the one he loves and the family he’s trying to sustain. In fact, he recently confessed to the investigators that he’s the real culprit behind the death of their friend Bogs (Ketchup Eusebio) even though evidence point to Juris.
This couple’s love story only proves the cliché love adages that we believe in since our younger years – that it can conquer all and that it is blind. Blind in the sense that we tend to look past the blunders and offenses of the people we love and still accepting and loving them till the end, as well as hurdling through every obstacle that will come into our lives hand-in-hand.
With how Drei treated Juris, as seen in the clips included in this Kapamilya Toplist, many lovelorn people out there would probably utter #SanaAll!
Is it going to be happy ending for them? Let’s all find out in the finale episode of Sino Ang Maysala? Mea Culpa this August 9 on Primetime Bida.
