When the person you like does not like you back, will you stop hoping or take that as a motivation to continue proving your loving intentions? For Caloy (JC Santos) from the action-drama series Walang Hanggang Paalam, even getting friend-zoned won’t stop him from trying to win Sam (Arci Munoz)’s affection because he is just so deeply in love with her, shown in this Kapamilya Toplist.
Once perceived as “epal” and “panggulo” in Sam’s mission with Emman (Paulo Avelino), the happy-go-lucky Caloy eventually gained Sam’s trust that she opened up to him about her family problems. He learned that she’s longing for filial support and that she still grieves her mother’s death.
He would also share the misery of being tagged as the family’s black sheep. And sharing the same sentiments will only deepen their connection, even leading up to late-night phone conversations wherein they’d talk about their internal battles. He may not have said it straight but the smile on his face was enough of an assurance that he’s always there to support her.
Caloy unknowingly fell more in love with Sam when he saw how devoted of a friend she is. With admiration, he stared at her as she promised to help him clear up his reputation from the criminal accusations against him.
They shared subtle kilig moments in that hospital scene. He was confined and placed under hospital arrest because of her miscalculated action. Instead of getting mad at her, he chose to accept his jeopardy, putting his trust in Sam’s words that she will do everything to prove his innocence and have him released sooner. At that moment, when Sam was making all these promises and tending to his needs, he knew he’s lucky to have her around.
He began wooing her after landing a stable job, albeit keeping his intentions low-key. There was a scene where Caloy surprised Sam with a coffee delivery at the NIA. Although he handed the drink to her teammate, her ‘thank you’ was enough to brighten Caloy’s morning.
Aware of Sam and Emman’s past, Caloy asked for his friend’s permission before making further moves. “Ang lakas ng tama ko sa kanya, eh,” he said of her. When Emman gave him the green light, saying everything’s in the past for him, Caloy thought the best thing to do is help Sam get over Emman first.
He finally had the guts to confess his feelings but only to end up getting friend-zoned. Sam pointed out that it would be better for them to remain friends. She said she would rather protect their friendship than bring Caloy potential heartbreaks.
Despite the rejection, Caloy did not stop trying to win Sam’s heart. Ending this Toplist is the bar scene where Caloy, Sam, and Emman drowned their miseries by drinking. Whether it’s just the effect of alcohol or a slight confession unknowingly spoken from the heart, Sam told Caloy that she’s starting to find him lovable.
