Cunning and downright evil – that’s who Leo (Tonton Gutierrez) is in the Kapamilya primetime series Walang Hanggang Paalam. The villain hides behind a mask of kindness and service, using his position as a ‘General’ to run a syndicate with the Hernandez family. Check out this Kapamilya Toplist proving that Leo can be the ruler of hell because of his monstrous ways.
Viewers of Walang Hanggang Paalam thought Leo was on the good side. After all, he is a law enforcement figure supposed to be honest and righteous. But as the story progressed, his involvement with the Hernandez family became more apparent to the audiences. He uses his power to protect the mafia and the Hernandezes, especially Amelia (Cherry Pie Picache), whom he shares an illicit affair with. His main role is to deflect the evidence pointing to them.
Part of Leo’s game plan is to manipulate the NIA and its core officers like Gabo (Art Acuna), who is not easily swayed, thus igniting conflict. Leo would find an opponent in Gabo because of the latter clinging to proper investigative procedures. There was a time when Leo condemned Gabo’s act of taking in Nick (Ronnie Lazaro) and Caloy (JC Santos) under the custody of NIA. Deep inside, he wanted to bring them to greater danger. Gabo insisted that he got the approval and order from the higher office headed by General Ronquillo (Archie Adamos), who banned Leo’s involvement in Emman (Paulo Avelino)’s case.
There’s no clearer proof of one’s wickedness than betrayal. Leo hired Franco (Victor Silayan) to assassinate Araceli (Sherry Lara), scared that the latter’s arrest would lead him to jeopardy. He feared that Araceli would sell him out to the NIA so he had to move fast. Prior to the killing, Leo also interrogated Araceli and condemned her immoral acts. He was an image of a two-faced monster ready to attack even his allies once exposed to danger.
After eliminating Araceli, the devious Leo made sure to clear the incident from necessary evidence especially the traces of fingerprints. A video footage almost caught the gunman’s identity but Leo managed to fix all the brewing troubles. In a secret meeting to hand the agreed amount, Leo issued Franco a warning. He threatened to kill the gunman in case of another act of negligence.
After all, Leo’s expertise is to silence those who threaten to expose his true colors. On top of the list is Emman that’s why he’s been determined to eliminate the former NIA agent. In the recent episodes, Leo and Anton (Zanjoe Marudo) celebrated after news about Emman’s death broke out. However, Amelia told them not to enjoy the victory too soon because they are yet to find Emman’s corpse.
“When he rises from the dead, he will bury us alive,” Amelia told Leo and Anton.
