She is in tears as she narrates how badly her father treated her and her mother while they lived with him. Next on the stand is Isabelle. His main victim, his biggest obssesion. She also testifies against her husband. (The lawyer is now silent...there is no way of helping Franco now...)

After the court has been adjourned, Franco walks out of the Court accompanied by his lawyer, several of his men and a bunch of other people who support him. A group of protesters led by Gabriel is waiting for him outside. They want him to be captured. Franco looks at them unmoved by their protests. He spots two of his daughters among the protesters and this breaks his heart. He smiles arrogantly and moves towards his car...he wants to get in...Just then a bunch of FBI agents show up and want to arrest Franco(hhhhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaa) They guys want to cuff his hands. Franco is trying to fight them off but he is unable to. (something stupid is about to happen) Andrea sees this and goes over to where her dad is. She is trying to urge him to stop this madness. (she feels some affection for her en stranged dad!) Franco sees this, ceases the opportunity, he grabs a gun from one of the (STUPID!) FBI agents, Grabs hold oh his youngest daughter's little head and threatens to shoot her. Everyone else is left in a state of shock and panic( I am thinking why in the world di you have to go over there Andrea?) Gabriel wants to go and Save Andrea but he is restrained to protect her. Franco steathly gets away from the crowd with Andrea on his shoulders. Gabriel feels helpless, there is nothing he can do now to protect Andrea.  Franco gets away now with Andrea as the rest of the crowd helplessly watch as the now completley crazy Franco uses his younges daughter as shield. "Gabriel!! Gabriel!! help me!" Andrea cries as Franco drags her towards his car. Gabriel feels helpless and desperate!! No matter what, he must rescue Andrea. He is left there crying. They immedietly board a car and and are chasing after Franco. Andrea who is now inside the car is urging her father to let her go and surrender to the cops, he is only complicating his situation. Franco threatens her with a gun and tells her to keep calm. Franco is now driving as he is firing shots at Gabriel's car which is right behind him. Its a shoot out. Andrea cringes in fear as she closes her ears tight using her hands. she does not want to hear the shots. Franco is able to get away from his chasers. They arrive at the dock. Tessa and the rest of the guys are waiting for him there. Andrea is taken inside. Isabelle is at the police station. She is begging the police to help her find her daughter as she notes that Franco is completely crazy. She is crying uncontrollably and Lupe tries to calm her down. She cannot hold back her tears...she knows that Franco is desperate.Gabriel is there, feeling helpless as he watches Isabelle wail over Andrea... Its getting HOTTER AND HOTTER!!


Franco goes into Andrea's room. Andrea begs him to let her go, he refuses. She asks him what his plans are and he tells her that he will personally make sure that she will never be with Gabriel. He tells her that he is planning to put an end to their sweet love story by getting rid of Gabriel once and for all. Andrea is shocked, she tries to plead with her dad "dad, dad please don't hurt him, we will go with you, we will bw one big happy family...just don't hurt Gabriel" She grabs hold of her dad's hands as he leaves the room. "DAD! DAD!..." her pleas fall on deaf ears...he will go through with mission "destroy Gabriel Hidalgo!"  He leaves Andrea crying uncontrollably inside the room...

Gabriel now looks like a zombie. He is desperate to find Andrea. He tells Lupe that he knows that Franco is desperate and is capable of causing harm to Andrea. He tells Lupe that he will do the impossible to find Andrea. No matter the cost, he must find her. He has that determined look on his face that ladies you will agree with me makes him look super yummy!! Natalia calls Franco in the next room. She asks him to release Andrea. (WAIT A SEC!...is this Franco crying?? or are my eyeballs deceiving the hell out of me haaaaaaahaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaa) Franco tells her that he feels bad that she betrayed him when he gave her everything..."Everything I did was for you Natalia" Gabriel burges into the room and finds Natalia talking to Franco he grabs the phone from her and demands that Franco tell him where he has kept Andrea. Franco threatens him and hangs up.(THIS HAS JUST BECOME PERSONAL PEOPLE!!)

She teslls them that Franco is dangerous and she fears for Andrea's life. Tessa sees this and is worried for Franco. This has caused irrepairable damage to his name. She tells him "All we should worry about right now is keeping you out of jail...this is not good for you...lets just leave Franco...forget about everything and start a fresh elsewhere...lets leave" Franco looks at her(crazy eyes are back) he tells her " I am not leaving without my family" (haaaaaaaahaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaa serves Tessa right that witch!!) Tessa is shocked and exclaims "What?"..."Do you think they would want to live with you after all this?" Franco's mind is made up...he is not leaving without his fam...(haaaaaahaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaa) Tessa enters Andrea's room. They have an argument. Andrea positions herself. She tells Tessa that no matter what she does her mother is the only woman her dad will ever love. "He has never and will never love you Tessa, His one and only love is My mother!!" Tessa is annoyed and throws her on the chair where her handbag is. Andrea pretends she is arguing and sneakily takes Tessa's phone from the bag. The guards come in and stop the fight. Tessa picks up her bag and leaves. Andrea is left there happy that she has the phone.

Gabriel and Isabelle are talking in the living room. Natalia's phone rings.

Meanwhile Tessa is outside, she looks inside her bag her phone is missing. Andrea is talking to Gabriel. she gives him directions to where she is being kept. Andrea is crying as she explains her location to Gabriel. "I love you Gabriel" " I love you to Jacq" She hangs up as some guys enter her room. They leave immediately. Andrea sends him a text while he talking to the police. He tells no one about the text...its an address to where she is. Tessa now comes Burging into the room. "Where is the cell phone?" 
Andrea pretends "I do not know what you are talking about". Tessa tells her "You know exactly what I mean, don't play dumb with me!" Andrea is still defiant. She calls upon the guards. They restrain her as she takes the cell phone out from her pocket. Tessa has already told Franco that Andrea has talked to Gabriel. She tells Andrea that he is going to die and it will be her fault. Andrea is crying, using all her energy to beat Tessa up. Meanwhile Franco has set a trap for Gabriel, He goes and watches as he falls into his trap. The place where Gabriel is blows up. Franco watches as he happily laughs at this achievement!(i AM PRAYING GAB IS OKAY) Franco calls up Natalia and Isabelle picks up.

PART TWO...

Tessa is holding a gun at Isabelle and Natalia. She is threatening to shoot one of the two. "Look what we have here, the beloved wife and the little spoilt brat...Franco's plan to make you one big happy family has failed"...."Who will go first? the beloved wife or the little spoilt brat?"  Isabelle goes in front of Natalia shielding her with her body, she dares Tessa to shoot her.  "Tessa please don't do this " Natalia now pleads with her, she reaizes Tessa is determined to shoot her, she jumps infront of her mother and says "Take me then, go ahead shoot me instead"  Isabel jumps in between them and there is a struggle both women are scrambling for the gun.(I am now yelling go Isabelle Go!) Isabelle manages to grab the gun from Tessa. She has the upper hand now....will she shoot?? suspense ooh!!

Franco has Andrea brought to him. Andrea is screaming trying her hardest to fight of the fat goon holding her. She is brought to Franco. Franco takes her into a room inside the ship.What?? Are my eyes decieving me or is his Gabriel am seeing?? Its really him guys. He is not dead people.He is just around the corner watching as Franco's guys take Andrea away. He now has a flash back to th time when he arrived at the ship and spotted the little surprise that Franco had waiting for him(THE BOMB) He remembers how he ran and dived his way to safety escaping the explosion. He makes a short call to Kaliksto. Kaliksto is overjoyed and goes running to Lupe to tell her the awesome news. Franco probably thinks that Gabriel is dead now. Gabriel waits till the cost is clear. He is on a mission to free Andrea. He goes past the first goon hitting him on the back and spraying a couple of bullets on him. He is now on the ship, he hits the second guy on the back and punches him on the face, as the guy goes flying down, he sprays a cuple of bullets on another guy who is comming down the stairs. The sound of the shots catches the attention of Franco and the rest of the goons. One guy comes with a gun and catches Gabriel of guard from the back. He points his gun on Gabriel's  head and Gabriel ha to surrender.(shhhhhhhiiiiiiiiitttttttttt!) The guys conner him and take him to Franco. 

Isabelle, Natalia and Tessa are still in position. Isabelle warns Tessa not to move or she will surely shoot. Natalia is protecting herself behind her now very fearless mother. The police cars together with Kaliksto and Gabriel's funny looking friend arrive. They happilly tell Isabelle and Natalia that Gabriel is still alive and is in the ship going to rescue Andrea. Isabelle tells the police to arrest Tessa as she is Franco's accomplice. Tessa is cuffed and taken away in a police car as the rest of them are on their way to the ship...



Gabriel is now facing Franco. Andrea who has been brought to the scene kicking and crying sees Gabriel "Gabriel? you are sill alive?" She is pleasantly surprised He tells Franco "Are you surprised hat am still alive?" Franco tells him that he is very dissapointed tha he did not die during the explosion but "All things must come to an end" (Franco's face looks so hideous...He canot believe that Gabriel did not die.)  Andrea now starts crying and throwing herself around as the two guys restrain her as Franco's goons now thoroughly beet up Gabriel.  Andrea is crying, she feels helpless, there is no way of saving him 



" Father please spare his life, let him be and we can go and become the family that you have always wanted" Andrea is pleading with Franco but Franco (now has the crazy eyes...) is not letting up... he want to see Gabriel dead. The guys let the blood biorthed Gabriel lay helplessly on the ground and Andrea is able to break free from the two guys. She goes and holds Gabriel's head, telling him that she loves him and asking him not to give up. Franco sees this and he says "Enough!" Andrea is taken away from Gabriel kicking and fighting and Franco orders his goons to tie him up. They do so, Gabriel is made to stand straight as Franco aims the gun to his head. Andrea is pleading with her dan not to shoot. Her dad is not heading to her crys. He is about to pull the trigger when Gabriel gains abit of stregnth, breaks away from the guys causing confusion and quickly dives into the water. Franco's guys hurriedly spray the bullets in the water to no avail...Gabriel has dissapeared into the water...Now Andrea is crying "Gabriel!! Gabriel!!" Lupe inside her house is praying "God protect my son from the evil plans of Franco"...Gabriel is sinking....

Immediately after Lupe finishes to pray, Gabriel's eyes open!! (yeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssss!!!!!!!) He is not dead yet. He struggles to free himself out of the  ropes and swims towards the ship...(AGAIN?? I have really never seen such determination in my life!!) He manages to hit the first goon and get past him, Enters into a room and when a gy tries to shoot him our superman dives his way into safety(You need to see this dive o believe it...no goalkeeper can beat this...What a dive!) He gets up and immediately shoots down the two guys who were there. He is now at the place where Andrea is being kept. He beats up the two guys at the door and manages to open it. Andrea is surprised to see Gabriel again. They hug...awwwwwwwwww sooooooo sweet. Gabriel gets her out of there. He tells her to go, he still need to confront Franco. She does not want to leave him but he convinces her to go get help. Andrea is running outside the ship and she meets up with Kaliksto. She tells them that Gabriel is still inside the ship and that they should hurry to help him. She wants to go back in but Kaliksto tells her to stay put. 

THE FINAL SHOWDOWN 

Gabriel is looking for Franco. He is holding a gun. Franco is also looking for Gabriel with a gun on his hand. Gabriel is now in an open ground and Franco is now behind him. Franco is holding a gun to his head(at this point, I am pretty tensed out) Gabriel turns around quickly and now both of them are holding guns at each other's face. They are both cautiously calculating each other's move( I am thinking who is going to blink first?) 
They are now walkning around each other, each one waiting for the other to make a move. Then Gabriel pulls the trigger once(What in the world?? He has no more bullets left...what a huge mess) Franco smiles. Gabrile tries once more...Nothing, Franco smiles again. Now Franco wants to pull the trigger. Gabriels acts fast, attacking his hand throwing the gun away from Franco. ts now a struggle, Punch after punch. Gabriel is down (Franco is a pretty strong oldy) Franco is throwing him around Gabriel tries to fight back but he is just too weak. Franco takes advantage of this and is trying to stranglle him and throw him down, Gabriel refuses to fall. Franco throws him down, takes a huge and heavy container and tries to throw it at him but Gabriel dodges it.  Franco is now stepping on Gabriel, Gabriel is bleading. He gains stregnth and throws off Franco's foot.  He goes over and hits Franco. PUNCH!! PUNCH...PAUSE...ONE HUGE PUNCH! Franco is now lying on the ground. Gabriel leaves him and goes over to take the gun. Franco wakes up and and goes juping behind him with all his force and both of the two men go falling down the ship...Gabriel manages to hold on to the edge of the sip and when he is climbing up we see Franco lying there with a huge blade that has pierced directly into his heart. Gabriel is up, looks down at him and Franco looks at him, tries to get up but cannot. He breaths his last...ROT IN HELL FRANCO HIDALGO!!(Though I must admit his acting has been flawless and impeccable!! )


Andrea sees Gabriel comming from the ship. She goes towards him and embraces him. He tells Kaliksto that Franco is dead. Kaliksto could not be happier. Andrea is a bit sad but comes over and hugs Gabriel again.  Finally the nightmare is over! Natalia is in another room crying as she looks at her father's picture.(Franco had his flaws but he has always adored his little Natalia) Isabelle comes and consoles her. Forever has just begun.


THE PROMISE OF FOREVER

Just then the doors to the chapel open... We see Andrea dressed in white, walking down the isle...



up the isle we see Gabriel waiting eargerly for his bride...The theme song Ikaw Lamang is being sung in the background (creating a very happy yet emotional mood in the church) (needless to say everyone looks amazing from the beautiful bride to the breathtaking groom...wow!) Andrea is crying as sh walks down he isle. She reaches to where her mother is and they hug. all teary.(awwwww)  She goes over to Gabriel

LAST WEEK OF AUGUST RECAPS!! 

FRIDAY...

ALOT OF COINCIDENCES LEAD TO THE PAST BEING UNCOVERED!!

Caught it at the tail end!!
Andrea and Gabriel have already arrived in Salvacion. Andrea is fascinated by the serene environment and the beauty that is this small town. Unknown to her is the amount of history (hers ) that is tied to this place!! “Salvation is so pretty!!"...She says...Gabriel looks at her. He is annoyed “Its not Salvation, it's Salvacion!!" He says with finality. (He looks grumpy, not as fascinated with this place as Andrea is) Andrea answers back “Salvation...Salvation...it's the same thing" (Gabriel has an intense look on his face. He flashes back to the time when he was a,kid, begging in the street for food!!) He has nothing but bad memories from this place!
They reach the house. The door is so huge. Andrea is at awe.“You didn't tell me that the girl you were pursuing is this rich!! Wow look at this doorstep, it's bigger than my entire bedroom!!...you are chasing after a princess!" Gabriel doesn't answer her. He is a little reluctant to knock. Andrea is getting impatient. “Why don't you knock already, or let me knock,"..(He tells her to shut up) he is still not knocking. She gets impatient. “HEY!! Is anybody home??" Gabriel shushes her. He is about to knock when the door suddenly swings open. Cindy is at the door. “You again, what are you doing here??" He tell a her “Can I speak to Natalia?? " She asks “And who is that behind you??(Natalia is now peeping her little head to be seen properly) Your other woman?? “her name is Jack, she has come to let me clear things up with Natalia." At this point Jacqueline is pressed. She needs to use the toilet fast. “Can I use your toilet?? Please I really need to pee" Cindy is being a bit stubborn. Jacqueline uses plan be flattery. “is that your lipstick?? Looks so good on you!! Ooh or that's the natural color of your lips? Wow you are so pretty!!" Cindy is flashing from all,the comments “I get that a lot" Andrea asks again “now can I use your bathroom?" “of course you can, come right in!!" Gabriel is left at awe!! (This girl really has some fantastic skills there!) Cindy has ni choice but to let Gabriel in.
Gabriel is walking around. He sees a photo of Franco (back in the day with his funny wig, posing like a model in a photo shoot.) He has a flash back, he remembers the time when Franco told him “I am the one who killed your entire family, I am the one who caused the explosion!!" He gets more angry! (I have a feeling this place is not good for him at all. ) Natalia comes and sees him. Meanwhile Andrea is walking around, she is lost. She finds herself in a room full of antiques. She is in awe. As she walks around, Something falls. In her bid to pick up the mess, she bumps into Isabel's diary!! What a wonderful coinqy!! (Remember the time when Maximo had Gonzalos house burn down?? It's one of the few,things that actually survived!!...that same day Isabel found out that Franco was feigning paralysis!! Great times) the diary is a bit burnt, but the words are still intact. She starts reading through the diary! Wow the woman behind the writhing talks about true love (Andrea's favorite topic.) She is so deeply engrossed in the story. (Unknown to her that the diary belongs to her biological mother)
Cindy almost catches her reading the diary. She hides it inside her backpack. (Symptoms of the past being dug) she dodges Cindy's questions by using flattery. Cindy falls for it. She leaves the room. Natalia is talking to Gabriel. Andrea comes and Natalia turns back. What she sees blows her mind!! This girl looks exactly like her mother. She say “hi my name is,Jack but you can call me Jacqueline" Natalia, still shocked by the striking resemblance says“it's impossible!" Andrea is confused “impossible that my name is Jacqueline??" Natalia clarifies...“you look exactly like my mother!"...a slight pause. Andrea doesn't believe that she resembles Natalia's mum. She thinks Mrs Isabel must have been way too pretty. Gabriel also doesn't think so. She must be confused. Andrea also remembers Natalia from somewhere...“oooh yes!! You look exactly like the runaway bride, the senator's daughter!!" Cindy tells her “that's because it really is her you dummy" oops Andrea is sorry. “Jack you are not helping!" Gabriel finally explains himself. Natalia is really pleased that he went through all that trouble for her. He says “Its because you are important to me!(more like important for my mission dummy!)" Andrea is looking on, do I sense jealousy??
Natalia makes a call. Jealous Tessa picks up. She tells him that she has met a girl who looks exactly like her mum. (Wait a sec!! Is Natalia that naive!??, that's disastrous news for her the poor woman has been waiting for Franco for more,than 20 years) Tessa doesn't want Franco to have anything that reminds him of Isabel around him. She tells Natalia that she will investigate. Franco asks if any calls have been made. She tells him about Natalia's call but doesn't mention anything about what Natalia told her.
Natalia talks with Gabriel. She asks about his relationship with Andrea. He tells her that he sees her as a dude!!(poor Andrea hears this but doesn't take it to heart!) Gabriel declares his unconditional care for Natalia. He later talks with Andrea. He apologizes for calling her a dude, saying he had to say that to wipe off any doubts that Natalia might have!! He wants to go, she wants him to show her around. “I am no tour guide" he says. He is going but Andrea is holding on to him. They playfully leave the room.
Samuel is searching door to door for Kaliksto, Isabel is back in Manila, looking for a job. An accident in the market leads Isabel and Jacqueline s mother to meet mysteriously!! Perhaps the big break we have all bn looking forward to!!

 

THURSDAY...

THE DRAMA CONTINUES!!! GABRIEL AND ANDREA ARE BEYOND FUNNY!! (LITERALLY LAUGHED THE ENTIRE EPISODE!!) smile emoticon

Natalia and Gabriel are at dinner. They decide to give their relationship a chance. Gabriel tells Natalia “I have fallen for you!" (What?? He doesn't know what he is saying) Natalia makes him promise that he will never make a fool of her. They are now officially a couple. Franco gets word about Natalias behaviour. He is upset. How could Natalia defy him?? How could she escape her body guards?? Natalia comes home. They have a heated argument with Franco. It's the first time they have fought and it's all thanks to Gabriel. She later has a conversation with her hilarious nanny Cindy. Cindy tells her that maybe Gabriel is not the right man for her, he makes her argue with her father. Natalia doesn't think so. He makes her feel good about herself. “for the first time I can see the world for what it really is" Natalia is mesmerized!! (Gabriel's vengeance plan is working like magic!)
Gabriel comes over to the Key to your heart shop. He is grumpy, even mad. Andrea gives him the Keys he had ordered. He gives Andrea another job. He wants her to make other keys for him. This time she receives them very cheerfully. More money for the shop. Gabriel tells her “I will not be around for some time" Andrea seems sad. “Why?? Where are you going? She asks him with a concern tone in his voice. “Its none of your business!!" He responds rudely. She notices he is mad. “You must be the grumpiest man in love I have ever seen!! Most guys in love are usually happy, they smile a lot and everything around them inspires them." Gabriel is now listening very attentively. He asks her “have you ever had a boyfriend??" She says no. He tells her “Stop talking like you are a love expert!!" He leaves. She now grumbles to herself “But I listen to radio love experts, is that wrong??"(Hahahahahahaha)
Franco is still agitated at Samuels disappearance. He wants to find him at whatever cost. (Reason being that at this particular point Samuel and Isabel might be together!) He tells a jealous Tessa about his concerns. Tessa tells him “You had a chance twenty years ago to kill Samuel, but chose to keep him alive for Isabel's sake, now look where it has got you??... The man had chosen to hide himself from you" Franco still insists on finding Samuel whatever it takes!! “I just want my family to be complete again" he finally says that conclusively. Tessa says “ okay if that's what you want...(slight pause then)...but remember I will always be here for you" she goes and sits down. In her mind she says “I hope you are dead where ever you are Isabel!!"
Andrea is all dressed up. In a pink t-shirt and some floral leggings. She climbs down the stairs. Her parents ask her where she is going all dressed up. She says she is going to angels house to take the keys to him. She tells them since she is going to a rich people's place she needs to look great. “Wait...(her father cuts in)...let me get my floral pants and I come with you". Andrea doesn't want him to accompany her. “ Dad no.... you don't have any floral pants and besides if he tries anything weird, I will defend myself!!" They eventually let her go. Natalia is looking at her phone(its 2005 and Motorollas were on then) she is waiting anxiously for something, anything, a call, a text from Gabriel. Cindy sees her. She asks if she is waiting for a call from him. Natalia answers yes. After a little pep talk, Natalia realizes that Cindy cannot help her in this dilemma. She decides to go visit Gabriel. Leaving Cindy with the hard task of coming up with a convincing lie for Franco. She is on her way to Gabriel's house.
Gabriel is at his house. There is a knock at the door. (Who could it be?? Natalia or Andrea??...hahahaha) he opens it. It's Andrea. “what are you doing here??" “ I came to deliver the keys you ordered...you don't remember you even tested me the address??" Ooh he finally remembers. He welcomes her inside. She is at awe! “wow you have such a beautiful house!!...(She is still looking around) ...this must be how you rich people live,...(Gabriel is now cooking in the kitchen Andrea notices this ) ...wow you can even cook, you know when I was young I wanted to learn to cook but I just ended up eating all that my mother cooked...(She goes on and on and on)" Gabriel sets the table Andrea once again, “wow, it smells good, sardines are my favorite, let me taste, (she puts a spoonful in her mouth) mmmm h...yummy" she eats to her fill. Gabriel wants her gone. Her tummy suddenly starts to ache. “What did you put in my food?" Gabriel is shocked. “I need to use the toilet" “Why don't you use the toilet at your place??" (Hahahahahahaha) Andrea tells him that hers seems to be kind of far. She rushes to the toilet, her hands holding her little butt. She is pressed(hahahahaha) There is another knock at the door...
Gabriel goes to answer the door. It's Natalia. He invites her in. She notices the extra plate on his table. She asks him if he has company. He says his friend Jack. Meanwhile Andrea is playing with the mini shower in the bathroom. It suddenly opens and water pours all over her. She screams. Natalia hears the noise. She asks Gabriel where it is coming from. He tells her its from a neighbour's place. She obviously doesn't believe him she is leaving. “Natalia...I have nothing to do with that girl inside my condominium. " Natalia looks at him...“The only thing I asked of you was not to lie,to me but you already have" She leaves. He comes back. Andrea is already out of the toilet. “you bring me nothing but bad luck!!" Andrea turns the tables on him. He notices she is wet. He grabs her hands and pulls her towards his bedroom. He throws her on the bed and is looking for something from the wardrobe. Andrea is crying. “No...I can't do that yet, am not ready for that kind of thing, please no....(now looking at her tiny blobs) ...am way too young for that" Gabriel throws her a t-shirt. “Oooh that was it??...I was thinking it was time already!" (sex hahahaha this girl is hilarious!)
Gabriel visits Natalia. Meets up with Cindy who tells her that Natalia left for Salvacion. He goes and finds Andrea. He wants her to fix the mess she made. She can't go to salvacion it's too far. Andrea goes home only to find her parents being kicked out of the house. They promise to come up with the,money. She receives a text from Gabriel. He has already booked her ticket. She says she has found a way. She leaves right away. They meet up with Gabriel at the airport. Samuel is,also arriving. But they miss each other. They board the plane.
Andrea is afraid. Gabriel uses this to play a prank on her. He tells her to start counting in order to get over her fear. He then tells her to place her hand over her mouth and another one over her nose. She can't breath!! He is now laughing loudly at her. She is si easy to fool. Andrea realizes that she has just been pranked. She hits him abit. He laughs. She continues counting as the plane takes off. Gabriel looks on...fascinated by her innocence and naivity!!! It's only the BEGINNING!!

WEDNESDAY...

 

A LOVE TRIANGLE IS SLOWLY FORMING!! THE TWO WOMEN IN GABRIEL'S LIFE HAVE SUDDENLY FALLEN FOR HIM, BUT WHO DOES HIS HEART BELONG TO?? (HOTBED OF CONFUSION!!)

Gabriel hits all the goons after Natalia. They flee. Natalia cannot thank him enough for his help. They are locked in an embrace. Gabriel tells her now that she is safe, he will have to leave. He takes a few steps away, she calls to him “Gabriel!!" He stops, looks back. He is pleased at this. She tells him “can we be friends?" He smiles wider (a yes perhaps) of course yes. He drives her home. Meanwhile Samuel wants to find out about what Franco has been up to all these years. He goes looking for him, sees him leaving his office and then follows him to his house, very silently. Gabriel and Natalia arrive at her doorstep. He wants to go out with her again. She hesitates, (doesnt want to be stood up again. ) He promises never to let her down again. At that point Gabriel enters his car(rather stolen car) and drives off. Franco drives in almost immediately, meets Natalia. She tells him Gabriel dropped her off. His curiosity has been aroused. He wants to meet this Gabriel!! (Whattt?? Nooooooo!! Terenteren!!)(Samuel is eaves dropping from the Bush. He sees Franco's life and says “this is the kind of life me and my family should be living") Gabriel goes and meets up with three guys...They are calling him boss, he gives them an amount and they complain about him hitting them too hard (hahahahahaha do you remember the guys who attacked Natalia??, it was all part of a plan!! :-))
Gabriel takes some key work to Andrea. He wants the work done by tomorrow. It's a lot of work. She is not sure she will be able to finish making the keys. He is grumpy today, not in his usual good mood. She notices this. He receives a call!! Surprise surprise! It's Natalia, she tells him “my dad wants to meet you for dinner" (what???) He is shocked!! It's way too soon for that. She reminds him of the promise he made her, he will never let her down, he has to find a way out of this one, what in the world would he do?? Meanwhile Andrea in the background is struggling to listen in on Gabriel's conversation. He is done talking. He comes back and tells Andrea to finish the keys by the morning. Andrea tells him “you have an intense look today, what are you afraid of meeting the parents of your girlfriend??" He is abit taken aback “Have you been eavesdropping on my conversation??" Andrea to him “I won't deny it, yes, you were not standing that far off plus you have a tenancy to speak loudly" he smiles a little. She tells him he is a bit mean, he looks at her and asks “do I really look that mean to you??" She looks him straight in his eyes and says... “weeeeeell...(a slight pause then)...just a little bit. Andrea's dad arrives carrying something heavy. Gabriel runs to him immediately and takes the load from him. Her mum arrived just then and has brought some delicious food. She tells Gabriel to stay over. He wants to turn her down but agrees after much persuasion.
They are inside. They are eating. Andrea says something that sends Gabriel smiling from the inside out. She says “look he smiled!...you know what angel you should smile more often, it makes you look cuter" both of them smile, looking deep at each other's eyes. Andrea's parents notice this weirdness between them.
Gabriel is about to meet up with Franco and Natalia. He has to come up with something fast. Kaliksto calls him while he is hiding at the restaurant. He tells him the bomb is already planted inside Franco's office. Franco arrives, greets Natalia. He is angry that Gabriel has not arrived yet. Gabriel is just waiting for Franco to leave. Some of his men arrive with the news of an emergency in his office. He tells his daughter to stop seeing this Gabriel. He leaves, Gabriel Times him and then enters. He feigns disapointment when Natalia informs him about her father's depature(we all know he is beyond delighted.
Andrea is with her parents and her friend. She is asking her about Gabriel's recent visits saying he has become quite the frequent visitor. “could he be the one??" Of course Andrea denies it. Her mum tells her that Gabriel is way too good looking to be interested in her. “look at him...(She says touching her husband's face) he is not exactly the most handsome man in the world" her husband looks at her weird “what do you mean honey, I am now offended"...She touches his face gently and says “You might not be the most handsome man in the world but I love you with all my heart!!" They are now doo mushy and hug each other tightly. “That's it!! That's the kind of love I want!!"
Meanwhile, we see Isabel. She is now a little older with beautiful long black hair. She seems to have forgotten about her entire past. She tells another woman that she feel like a part of her is missing. The woman tells her that this is the time to get back her life. Franco is convinced that Samuel is behind the bomb and doubles up the security even giving Natalia two more bodyguards. Samuel goes back to Salvacion he has never been able to forget Isabel. He is told that Kaliksto is alive and he might have his son. This is good news!!
Gabriel is in a restaurant. He calls up Natalia. Tells her he wants to meet up with her. Natalia doesn't know how to escape her bodyguards. He tells her he will wait however long it takes. She escapes and arrives at the restaurant!! He sees her and smiles!! Meanwhile Andrea realizes that Gabriel left the,keys at her place...
Tommorrow Andrea goes to Gabriel's apartment to give him the keys...Natalia is also coming. The spark between Andrea and Gabriel is undeniable. She goes to use the toilet, Natalia knocks, Gabriel opens the door, surprise surprise, it's Natalia. She asks “do you have company?" Just then Andrea screams!! It's obvious it's a woman's voice!! Gabriel is super busted!!

TUESDAY....

 

FIREFLIES IN THE AIR!!! THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A BEAUTIFUL AND COMICAL LOVE STORY BETWEEN GABRIEL AND ANDREA/JAQUILINE!! TODAYS EPISODE WAS AN EXPLOSION OF PLEASANT EMOTIONS....SOO CUTE!

Apparently some guys are after Gabriel. He has to get away fast. Guess what, it's Andrea's' scooter that's his only way of escaping. He hops on taking Andrea with him. They flee until the goons are nowhere to be seen. They leave the scooter and walk through the Bush.
They are at a place full of fire flies. (Its destiny) Andrea and her mushiness...she catches one of the fireflies and makes a wish. Gabriel is staring at her. He is at awe!! He has on the “This girl is crazy" look on his face. After she makes her wish, he mocks her on how stupid her wish was, he even does a funny dance(hahahahaha it's super funny btw) just to mock her. She thinks he is just being mean. She is walking away. Gabriel is after her. She is talking continuously about how mean he is and how slowly he is walking. She is now walking a little faster!! Gabriel just ignores her as he strides slowly behind her. She sprains her ankle!! She starts complaining about the pain. “it hurrrrrrrrts(I am not joking they played it in slow motion) Gabriel looks at her. She is simply breathtaking. For a while he just stops and stares and then he goes over to her. He tries to pick her up. “Don't touch me!!" She screams immediately. “I can stand by myself!" Gabriel looks at her. In his head probably thinking she can't be serious. He asks her “Are you completely sure??" She says yes. He backs off, she tries to stand but fails. He picks her up forcibly. She looks at him and stares... Gabriel is also staring at her...(trust the IKAW lamang theme song to be playing in the background!! How wonderful!!)
Gabriel notices her checking him out. He asks her “Why are you staring at me??" She is a bit taken aback. She tells him “of course am not" hitting his chest gently and jockingly. Gabriel now has the malicious smile and tells her “You think am hot don't you!!" She is now hitting him hard trying to break free from his hands, he adjusts her by the knee and laughs(I must admit at this point Gabriel's arms just looked so amazingly strong!!) He smiles as she continues with her tantrum. He carries her to the point where the scooter was. Hahahahahahaha surprise surprise!!!
Meanwhile Natalia is waiting for Gabriel at the restaurant. The waiter comes to serve her but she tells him she is waiting for someone. (Back to ANDRIEL) the scooter is not there!! Andrea starts to freak out. She tells Gabriel to put her down. He does so. She stars to freak out again. She is asking Gabriel where the scooter is. Gabriel tells her he has no clue since they were together. She starts crying “my scooter ran away!! Noo my scooter ran away!!!" Gabriel tells her a scooter cannot possibly run. He has to go somewhere fast. He tells her he has to leave. She tells him it's okay. He leaves. She is still screaming “Help!! Someone has stolen my scooter!! Is there anyone out there with a golden heart?? Pliiz!!) Then we see feet approaching... yeeeeeeesssss!! Gabriel is back!! Natalia can wait!! He could not stand leaving her out here all by herself. He picks her up in his arms. She is screaming again (Hahahahahahaha truly Andrea is a cartoon) “Help he is kidnapping me" Gabriel ignores her again and carries her to the taxi.
The guard inside the prison has a plan to help Samuel escape. He starts a fire. He helps Samuel escape. Tessa (Franco's mistress and wannabee wife) receives the news from some of Franco's men. She relays the news to Franco. He doesn't seem convinced of Samuels death. Tessa thinks that it's all because of him not finding out about Isabel's whereabouts. It's not that. Franco knows Samuel as a fighter. He wouldn't die so easily. The next day he receives news of the ortorpsy done on the body of Samuel. The dental formula doesn't match. Franco realizes that Samuel is alive. Luckily he does not suspect the warden who helped Samuel. For now coast is clear(phew!!) Meanwhile though Samuel knows he is in danger, he must meet with his son!!
(Back to ANDRIEL:) They come out of the taxi. Andrea is home. She asks Gabriel if he was supposed to go somewhere. He says yes and he is already late. He tells her to hop on his back. She tells him it's his call. He carries her to the door!!( He seems to be enjoying carrying her around all the time hehehe) he sits her down but wants to carry her inside as well. Andrea's father comes out. He sees a stranger carrying his daughter. He freaks out almost hitting Samuel with a huge log. Andrea stops him. She explains what's going on. He feels embarrassed and offers Gabriel a drink. They get into the house. Gabriel is a bit agitated, (remember Natalia is still waiting for him) Andrea's dad insists he drinks. Her mother comes to the living room abit dizzy. Samuel rushes out to help her. He even goes the extra mile of getting her medicine. Andrea is pleased. He tells her that beneath that tough mean guy look, there is a good guy. Gabriel is abit taken by this. He has to leave. Andrea tells him “goodbye angel!" He stops and asks her what she called him. She says “from now on I will be calling you Angel" He smiles and leaves. Reaches the restaurant but finds Natalia gone!! (He is in deep trouble!)
Calculator thinks he is slacking on the operation because of Jacqueline. He arrives early the next morning in Andrea's house with a brand new scooter. Andrea sees it. She thinks it's pretty. He tells her he has bought it for her. She rushes over to it. Hugs it!! Kisses it!! “Its like I won a lottery or a beauty peargent!!...) Gabriel looks at her. He is fascinated by her innocence. She insists on paying for it. He tells her to go and work for him. She thinks it's an indecent Job. “I can't do that kind of job!! I can't sell my soul or body to you!! Am too young..." (She says this with a slight foolishness to her) he assures her the job is decent. She is overwhelmed by his kindness. She rushes over and jumps on him happily hugging him tightly and thanking him. He is smiling. He pushes her away abit. “you just wanted to hug me" he says teasingly. She tells him playfully “but you liked the hug!!" He smiles...
Andrea is speaking with her friend. Her friend thinks Gabriel and Isabel could be in love. Isabel insists she can't fall in love with him even though she is starting to really like him. Gabriel goes over to Natalia's spar but she wants nothing to do with him. Later some thugs attack Natalia. Gabriel shows up just in time!! His martial arts skills sends the goons running for dear life. He is once again a hero in natalia's eyes (do you think he planned it??

MONDAY...


ANDREA IS A CARTOON AND GABRIEL HAS TO PAY UP OR EXPERIENCE MORE EMBARRASING MOMENTS BESIDE OUR NEWEST COMIC SENSATION!!

Andrea/jaquline is still waiting for Gabriel. She wants to make him pay for ruining her poodle!! Gabriel is still out chasing after Natalia, he wants to make Franco pay for murdering his entire family. Natalia and her father's newest conquest Tessa are out shopping. Gabriel has been following them secretly. Tessa leaves the shop leaving Natalia behind. Natalia comes out of the shop. Gabriel pretends to be making a call!! Hahaha coinqidentally!!!(I did that intentionally!) They meet!! Natalia has the “what a wonderful surprise" face while Gabriel has the “hahaha gotcha!! That's exactly what I wanted you to think" face. He asks her out!! But of course, she blushes and accepts!!
They are eating out. Natalia is totally flirting with Gabriel. Gabriel is excited things are finally falling into place. Meanwhile Andrea and her friend are outside. The friend is seriously fighting off mosquitos which are feeding on her. She wants to leave “Lets go, this mosquitos are making a feast out of us" Andrea doesn't want to leave just yet, she tells her to wait a little longer. After a few minutes they leave. Gabriel also pays for the (expensive) dinner and Natalia leaves. As Andrea is walking she spots Gabriel inside a restaurant hahaha she laughs and says “Gotcha!!" With a highly determined look and a malicious smile she storms into the restaurant!! When she is at the door she shouts “HEY YOU!!" (It's trouble for Gabriel!!).
Gabriel is startled, just like many of the customers inside the restaurant. He looks around hoping it's not him Andrea is pointing at. She approaches his table and says “of course it's you am pointing at!!" (Hahaha at this point am laughing my lungs out) Gabriel is confused, what the he'll is she talking about?? She starts screaming at him to take responsibility. Everyone at the restaurant is startled. They obviously think that Gabriel is one those dead beat father's. Gabriel can't take the humiliation any longer and pulls her away. Andrea is still creating a scene. Natalia happens to be standing outside and overhears this. She also misunderstands and Gabriel sees her. He gives Andrea a fake business card and tells her to contact him. Andrea finally leaves him alone.
He gets home. It looks like Lupe doesn't know about the revenge plan between Kaliksto and Gabriel. Andrea sneaks into the house. She takes the food and is about to eat it. Her fatso mother and funny faced father think a thief has entered the house. They come slowly with brooms on their hands. Aaaaaaaaaaa!!! They scream as they are about to hit andrea aaaaaaaaaah! Andrea is also screaming. “ Its me!!!" She exclaims. They switch on the lights and find Andrea posing trying to defend herself with a fork!!(hahahaha) they are relieved.
The next day Andrea sets out on a mission “Find Gabriel Mondrigo or die trying" apparently Gabriel lied about his name too. She goes to the address. She is looking for him but doesn't find him. She gets thrown out by the guard's. On her way out she is screaming “GABRIEL!!!" She is out. She figures out that probably GABRIEL made a fool out of her. She must make him pay.
As she is walking away, she sees live news broadcast. She runs and takes the microphone from the journalist(Hahahahahahaha) she says she is looking for a certain Gabriel Mondrigo. Hahahahahahaha at this point she is all over the news. Gabriel just happens to be around the area, she spots him and points at him. (This is embarrassing) he goes and grabs her taking her away. They come to a deal that he will fix the bike. They go to check out the bike.
A neighbour comes running to Andrea's parents. She tells them that Andrea is already a star coz she has seen her on tv!! They run to watch her. We also see a strange woman who is startled to see Andrea on tv(hint this is probably Isabel). Andrea later arrives at home with Gabriel. Her parents automatically think Gabriel is her suitor. Her Mother comments on how handsome he is. She tells them he is the one who wrecked her poodle. They go inside. Gabriel sees the poodle and thinks it's too old but agrees to fix it. He seems to see Andrea's concern over her parents. He is touched. He later takes the poodle to the junk shop and it gets fixed. Kaliksto thinks he is lagging behind in the revenge plans and reminds him of his priorities.
Franco pays a visit to Samuel. Samuel is now old. He has been rotting away for years. Franco had never killed him because somehow he hoped that Samuel would reveal to him the whereabouts of Isabel. He refuses and tells Franco that Isa died. He flashes back to the time after the accident, him almost killing Franco, and Franco taking him captive. The only thing that kept him alive inside the dirty dungeon was the hope of Seeing his son once more.
Gabriel is done with fixing Andrea's poodle. He delivers it to her. Andrea sees him and he sought of takes her breath away. He unboards the poodle and she tells him he looks funny riding on a motorbike. She doesn't believe that it's all fixed and wants to go on a test drive. Though he doesn't want to, he agrees just to get Andrea off his back. They go on the ride but it's still not enough for Andrea, she wants to go on another(I have a feeling she is really enjoying Gabriel's company). Gabriel receives a call. It's Natalia, he smiles, she wants to go out with him. Andrea looks disappointed!!

MONDAY ...


 

RIP EDUARDO!! WE LOVED YOU BUT “GOD"LOVED YOU MOST!! THE BEGGINING OF THE END FOR DON MAXIMO

I was battling tears while watching today's episode!! It was the hardest episode to watch...
Eduardo is talking to Samuel. He wants to leave him his legacy and accets. Its as if he knows what lies ahead of him. He knows that he can trust Samuel. (A dark atmosphere... As if something bad is going to happen is created)
Eduardo later talks to Elena. Its a beautiful conversation. He reminisces on the the past the odds that they have gone through. He is thankful. He says to Elena
“out of all the hardships that we have been through these past few years, Samuel and you coming into my life is perhaps the best thing that has happened to me"
Elena is thankful. She feels so loved. Eduardo continues
“I am grateful that life has given me an opportunity to know my son and to meet you so that I can love you again"
Elena is lost of words (its those cosy conversations between a man and a woman that is his soulmate, his better half!! His wife!) Elena is lying beside him. She draws closer and holds him by his waiste, her head on his chest. He kisses her forehead(a kiss of true and pure love) (I wanted this scene to go on forever) they fall asleep in each others arms.
The next morning Eduardo receives news. They have finally located Maximo's hide out. Elena finds Eduardo all ready to go. She doesn't want him to go. She is worried about his safety. Eduardo wants to be sure that “the devil" Maximo is actually put behind bars. Elena is still not sure. Eduardo says to her
“dont worry Elena, when you wake up tomorrow morning I will be by your side" He kisses her forehead and says in philipino “mahalgita"(meaning I love you... It was edited in English version)
As he is climbing down the stairs, he turns back and waves (its a premonition of the tragedy ahead!)
Eduardo, Samuel together with the policemen arrive at Maxi's hideout. They are welcomed with a party of bullets from inside the building. They take cover. When the danger is cleared the police enter the building followed by Samuel and Eduardo. They enter the house. No one is in sight, not even the busy body Maximo. Eduardo smells a rat. “Something is not right here" as he is looking around he sees Maximo peeping a gun through a small hole. The gun is aimed at Samuel. As Maximo pulls the trigger, Eduardo manages to push Samuel aside. Samuel falls to the ground as the bullets that were originally meant for him are sprayed on his father's frail body! HE GIVES HIS LIFE FOR HIS SON, TRULY THERE IS NO GREATER LOVE!!
Samuel sees his father on the ground, he is overcome by emotions. He is crying wailing. The police immediately retaliate by spraying bullets on Maximo. He is injured. Eduardo is rushed to the hospital, Samuel is by his side. He is pleading with him to hold on. When they reach the hospital, Maximo also arrives. He is also wounded. As the paparazzi are taking pics of the man who brought down a hero. Samuel is overcome by anger when he sees Maximo being brought into the hospital he immediately pounces on him. He is strangling him, calling him a monster. Samuel has to be restrained in order for him to keep his hands clean. (I wanted him to strangle him to death...was I the only one?)
Elena arrives at the hospital. She cannot hold back her tears. Franco arrives along with Isabel. Samuel blames him for allowing his (devil) grandfather to kill the man who treated him as no less than his own son. The doctor tells them that Eduardo's condition is critical. Meanwhile the farmers outside have lit candles to pray for Eduardo's quick recovery.
Elena and Samuel go in to see Eduardo. He is very frail, his skin is as pale as it is cold. He is merely struggling to breath. Elena says to him
“hold on Eduardo, remember that I love you very much"
He is struggling to talk...he says I... I... and finally dies...(in the Philippine version he actually says Mahalkita (I love you ) then dies. Elena wails for him. She is holding his hand, kissing it.( her manicure is perfectly done!!) Our eavesdropper is back!! (Franco) he is at the door. He watches helplessly as Samuel and Elena wail over the lifeless body of Eduardo. Franco later talks to Maximo. He blames him for wiping out his family. (Trust maximo to change the situation and emerge as the unsung hero.) Franco agrees to help him to get out.
Franco had earlier seen Isabel consoling Samuel. He gives her a thorough beating. Maximo goes back to prison and he is received as a hero by the prisoners. As they say their final goodbyes Elena goes and slaps Franco. Franco retaliates by saying that she ruined her family. Later Isabel tells Franco that it wasn't good to confront Elena like that. Franco almost beats her up. Isabelle is holding a knife-like weapon and is ready to use it against Franco. Franco refrains from hiring Isabelle. She refrains from using the weapon. Meanwhile the torture continues!! RIP EDUARDO

MID-AUGUST WEEK RECAPS

FRIDAY...

NATALIA IS TRULY HER FATHER'S DAUGHTER...


Samuel is still mourning the death of Mona. He wants to make sure Maximo and Franco pay for causing Mona's death. He speaks to Gonzalo. He is not sure about testifying against Maximo. He does not want to endanger the life of his daughter. Rebecca talks to him and convinces him. He later agrees to help them as long as they keep Isabel from harm's way.
Rebecca goes to Isabel's house but is not allowed In. She talks to Isabel over the window and tells her that they have prepared an escape plan for her. They plan to escape during the inauguration party of Franco. The day for the inauguration is here. Franco, Isabel and his two daughters are there. Isabel sneaks out and tells the nannies to take care of the kids. She is packing their clothes. Natalia comes in and finds Isabel packing.
