Although the center of war in The General’s Daughter is between Marcial (Albert Martinez) and Tiago (Tirso Cruz III), we saw how their wives contributed greatly to intensifying their disputes. As loving spouses, we witnessed how Corazon (Eula Valdes) and Amelia (Janice De Belen) did the best they can to support and fight together with their husbands, regardless of how dangerous, complicated or tremendously painful the journey could be. It was clear that the war of their husbands is their war too.
Back in their youthful years, Marcial, Corazon, Tiago and Amelia were comrades in the army. However, the conflict between them began when Tiago and Amelia thought that Marcial abandoned them during an encounter with the rebels. Their fellow soldiers saved Marcial and everyone assumed Tiago and Amelia were dead yet the rebels held them captives. A year after, Tiago and Amelia came back on Marcial and Corazon’s wedding day. Tiago thought that Marcial betrayed him, because they both knew that he loved Corazon first. They moved on and Tiago married Amelia instead. But eventually, the four of them started to clash again when Marcial opposed Tiago’s greedy plans. After Marcial succeeded in stopping Tiago, the war between the two couples persisted.
Having the same character like her husband, Corazon supported Marcial in all his battles. Even though Marcial advises her not to get herself involved, Corazon still did what she can to help her husband. On the other hand, despite being aware that Tiago’s actions were unlawful and immoral, Amelia still loved and protected her husband with all her might. She covered up for him and saved him whenever he needed back up.
Therefore, given that they are on opposing sides, Corazon and Amelia clashed as well. In their own ways, they would fiercely attack each other. Sometimes, their fights would contribute to the war of their husbands, involving their children as well. The women’s own face-offs is also because of Amelia’s jealousy over Corazon and Tiago’s failed love affair in the past.
Indeed, Corazon and Amelia stayed true to their wedding vows by always standing by their men come what may. Even now that Amelia is starting to choose the right path by cooperating with Corazon’s family to put Tiago behind bars for his despicable actions, she still pleaded for them not to kill her beloved husband and begged them to let him pay for his crimes behind bars.
As we get to the end of their journeys, will Corazon and Amelia finally be at peace with each other? Find out in the final episodes of The General’s Daughter, weeknights on Primetime Bida.
