MANILA – The lead character of Jericho Rosales in the top rating series "The Legal Wife" has finally set the record straight that he can never be the man who could give the love that Maja Salvador's character is looking for.
In the Monday episode of the Kapamilya soap, Adrian (Jericho) pays Nicole (Maja) a visit in her house.
Surprised by Adrian’s arrival, Nicole asks him if he’s just looking for his father (Mark Gil), to impress his legal wife, Monica (Angel Locsin).
Earlier in the episode, Nicole’s father shot Monica’s father in the chest, which led to the latter’s hospitalization.
Adrian, however, tells Nicole that the reason behind his visit is really to check on her and their son.
To which, Nicoles answer, “Yung totoo? Akala ko okay ako, okay kami ng anak ko. Akala ko magiging okay tayo. Pero nung dumating si Monica, I’ve never been okay. Kasi nung dumating si Monica, mas lalo mong pinaramdam sa akin at sa anak mo na sabit lang talaga kami sa buhay mo.”
Searching for words in response to what Nicole said, Adrian replies: “Sa umpisa pa lang sinabi ko na, kay Jacob ang responsibilidad ko. Nicole I’m sorry. Tanggap ko na maaki ang kasalanan ko sayo. Tanggap na tanggap ko. Umaasa ako na mababayaran ko lahat ng pagkakamali ko sayo, sa pagiging mabuting ama kay Jacob. Alam ko kasalanan ko ito sayo at kay Monica.”
“Hindi ko na lalabanan iyung annulment na hinihingi ni Monica para sa kalayaan niya. Nicole, gusto ko din sabihin sayo once and for all, hindi ako ang lalaking makakapagbigay ng pagmamahal na hinahanap mo. Hindi ko kaya,” Adrian continues.
But just when Adrian decides to leave Nicole’s palce, the latter asks him to admit that he also loved her at one point in his life.
“Hindi naging malinaw lahat sa akin, Aidran. Hindi kasing linaw ng kasal o ng kahit na anong kasulatan. Pero nung wala ka ng pag-asa kay Monica, aminin mo naman sa sarili mo, aminin mo naman na minahal mo rin ako,” she tells Adrian.
Offering no answer, Adrian walks away, leaving a crying Nicole.
Directed by Rory Quintos and Dado Lumibao, "The Legal Wife" will air its highly anticipated final episode on June 13.
It airs weeknights on ABS-CBN's primetime block after "Ikaw Lamang."
