As the drama series gets better, it is also nearing its end. Mundo Mo’y Akin with Alden Richards, Louise de los Reyes, and Lauren Young are entering its final weeks.
Already, the major characters—Giselle/Rodora (Angelika de la Cruz), Perlita (Sunshine Dizon), Ziggy (Gabby Eigenmann), and Charito (Jaclyn Jose)—now know who Darlene (Young) and Marilyn (De los Reyes) in their lives, thanks to DNA testing (finally, the writers are making use of new discoveries in medical technology).
Charito has begun looking at Darlene (previously her beloved granddaughter) as a parasite and tries to mend ways with Marilyn who has vowed not to embrace her being by birth a Carbonell.
Darlene also tries to win back Jerome (Richards) to Marilyn’s dismay.
What has happened to Perlita after all this rigmarole in the Carbonell dynasty? She has a hypertensive episode and needs surgery to remove the blood clot in her brain.
Interesting to find out what happens next. Will Marilyn turn out to be a ravishing beauty, thanks to cosmetic surgery? Or will she remain the ugly duckling that the Carbonell clan loves to abuse verbally and physically?
I watched the episode last Sunday and discovered some acting gems in the series. First, Jaclyn Jose’s bravura performance when she went into hysterics after hearing words from Perlita that Marilyn is Ziggy’s daughter. And when she reacted to the DNA test results confirming that Darlene isn’t her son’s daughter. Wow! Nobody can beat Jose in that department.
Second, Gabby Eigenmann’s reaction when the DNA results confirmed Marilyn is her daughter, he simply held Darlene’s hand and cried quietly. The actor showed restraint only the best actors in the industry can do.
Though I am no big fan of soap operas, I think with Jose and Eigenmann around, it won’t be much of a waste of time to sit and watch and maybe have some tears go by for 45 minutes.
