So, you hate Anton (Zanjoe Marudo) for two reasons – either because you’re on Team Emman (Paulo Avelino) or you find his temper a total turn off. But when it comes to being a boyfriend to Celine (Angelica Panganiban), he can earn your admiration as a man of loyalty (to the point that he’s getting borderline toxic, though). He is willing to move heaven and earth and defy the opinion of other people, even that of his family. We rounded up the scenes where Anton proved his devotion to Celine, as shown in the Kapamilya action-drama series Walang Hanggang Paalam.
When Celine faced a trial anew due to her son, Robbie (Robbie Wachtel)’s abduction, Anton volunteered to slash thirty million pesos from his riches in an attempt to save the child by giving in to the kidnappers’ demand for ransom money. The shy Celine thanked him repeatedly. But he didn’t use the act to guilt-trip Celine even if he can. Instead, Anton assured her of his loyalty and aid, telling her how much he loves her and Robbie.
However, Anton failed. The situation sent Celine into an emotional turmoil. In times of Celine’s agony, Anton is there to be her shelter and shoulder to cry on. He would solve Celine’s problems on her behalf as long as he can. He can be his superhero, too. “Kaya ko rin humarang ng bala para sa’yo,” he assured her, trying to compete with Emman’s action skills.
The couple got into a heated argument after Anton lashed out at Emman’s family, accusing them of alleged involvement in the kidnapping. Later on, Anton tried his best to patch things up with a disappointed Celine. He drove her to the police station to help gather new updates about Robbie and Emman, even if he had qualms about her set of plans. At the end of the day, he is for Celine, thus, he will stay by her side despite some differences. “Hindi laging naiintindihan ko ‘yung mga desisiyon mo sa buhay. Pero makakaasa ka sa suporta ko, mahal kita, eh,” he assured her.
No matter how mad he is, he won’t let the day pass without telling Celine how much he loves her. In a scene where Anton burned in jealousy knowing that Celine and Robbie were at Emman’s place, he proved that Celine’s ‘I love you’ is the simple antidote to his insecurity and rage.
When he caught sight of Emman sharing the same bed with Celine and Robbie inside the hotel room, Anton’s jealousy almost got him into trouble. He showed signs of an anger management problem. But all it took was Celine’s reassurance, “ikaw na ang mahal ko,” to ease the anger and cast a smile on his face.
We know that despite Anton’s love for Celine, you have grown some hunches about him by now, so don’t miss an episode of Walang Hanggang Paalam, weeknights, on Kapamilya Channel and Kapamilya Online Live.
