#LaLunaSangreAngItinakda Scene of the Day: Be a man!

With the prophecy out of the way, everyone on last night’s (June 21) episode of “La Luna Sangre” was scrambling to figure out who were the people mentioned in it. Obviously, because the prophecy mentions “ang anak ng pinakamakapangyarihang bampira at itinakdang lobo,” the council believed it to be Malia (Erika Clemente) and were torn on whether or not to bring her parents Mateo (John Lloyd Cruz) and Lia (Angel Locsin) back into the fold, even as mortals, in order to protect her; or let them live freely as agreed upon. As important as this is, this isn’t our scene of the day. (I just thought I’d mention it because, well, the hashtag was “ang itinakda.”) 
That honor belongs to Tristan (Justin James Quilantang) and Tonio’s (Romnick Sarmenta) scene out in the field. The lead-up to that scene was so innocent--with Tonio telling Tristan to eat as much as he could like a dad does, and with the little boy all excited that his dad was taking him out for the day. You’d never expect it would start the way it did with Tonio throwing a stick at Tristan’s feet and ordering him to pick it up with his harsh tone and cold eyes. Little Tristan was the star of this scene and here’s why: 
You could just see the happiness disappear from Tristan’s cute, little face; the way his “Po?” sounded a lot less energetic and a lot sadder (poor disappointed baby :( ) 
Little Tristan’s confusion as to what they were doing, so innocent 
The way Tristan teared up immediately when Tonio told him to hit him with the stick (god, those eyes just get you) 
His cry when Tonio pushed him down (WHY, TONIO, WHY) 
How he refused to fight his dad, despite all the shouting Tonio was doing or the past punishments he had to endure (if it were me, I’d totally take him up on it. Come on, Tonio, FIGHT ME.) 
How he showed so much wisdom for such a young boy: “Kapag mahal mo, hindi mo sinasaktan. At hindi mo dapat sinasaktan.” (tears. just… tears.) 
And the way he threw the stick down to the ground! It was just, like, “Enough! I’ve had it with this! I know this is wrong and you’re not going to make me do it!” all in one move. (This kid’s gooooood) 
I know--I’m a little in love with Little Tristan right now. But it was an awesome scene, right? 
Anyway, something big’s supposed to happen soon. Wonder if Tristan will play a part in it? Tune in tonight for an all-new episode of “La Luna Sangre” on Primetime Bida after “FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.”
