Passions are fueled and hearts become entangled as characters stay true to their emotions in The Filipino Channel’s (TFC) “Sub-titled Classics Presents: Magkaribal” this love month.
February opened with Gelai (played by Blockbuster actress Bea Alonzo) who, out of consideration for other people’s sake, tried to suppress her real feelings for Louie (played by actor Derek Ramsey) who tried to convince her otherwise. Gelai’s sister and Louie’s ex-lover Victoria (played by award-winning actress Gretchen Barretto) painfully watched as the romance bloomed. On the other hand, Alonzo’s friend Caloy (played by Kapamilya heartthrob Enchong Dee) and Chloe (played by Teleserye Princess Erich Gonzales) pursued their hearts’ desires – the former for underground fights and the other for photography.
On the second week of February, the fight between fashion queens gets dirty as Victoria fires Vera (played by equally award-winning actress Angel Aquino) after they engage in a fiery, verbal war once again. For Caloy, his passion for love takes a backseat as he asks Gelai to leave him after a heart-to-heart talk. Another passion, underground sports, is also put on hold as he gets caught in a raid.
On February 15 (February 16 in Australia, Guam, Japan and New Zealand), Victoria, Louie and Gelai are caught in an awkward situation when they see each other at Victoria’s new place or Vera’s former atelier. Vera, vengeful for getting fired by Victoria and convinced to retrieve her crown as fashion queen, schemes on the two sisters to continue fighting for the same man, hoping to see their eventual downfall. Meantime, her daughter Chloe goes for her new interest in photography while Caloy realizes he will never have a chance with Gelai and pursues Chloe.
On the last week of February (February 22 on TFC worldwide, February 23 in Australia, Guam and New Zealand), Gelai realizes she loves Louie and unknowingly starts to resent her own sister Victoria.
