Supremo, or rather Gilbert Imperial (Richard Gutierrez), finally got what he wanted on last night’s (September 7) episode of “La Luna Sangre” - a meeting with the great political strategist, Jacintha Magsaysay (Angel Locsin).
Flattered by the effort he put into meeting her despite her rejection of his offer, Jacintha agreed to meet with him. They would later meet at a hotel, where Jacintha considerately offered a free consultation so his time in Indonesia wouldn’t be a waste, but repeated that she would not leave her current job with the Indonesian president. Suspicious of Ms. Magsaysay’s true identity, Gilbert agreed. This is our scene of the day:
- Jacintha started with the most basic question: why did he want to run for president of the Philippines? (good start)
- Turning up the charm, Gilbert answered that he wanted a perfect world for all Filipinos, one where no one would go hungry and poverty didn’t exist (ugh Supremo and his “perfect world” - when he means a perfect world for vampires!)
- She asked how he planned to achieve that “perfect world” (I love the way she asked it, her voice was just so - ugh I don’t know how to describe it. Dreamy? It had a hypnotic quality to it, ganun!)
- He then explained how he planned to concentrate on education for the youth because “young, fresh blood” is the strongest source for a perfect world… (uh, creepy much? Also, has anyone else noticed that he smirks whenever he says the phrase “young, fresh blood”? It’s like he just can’t wait to have a drink of their blood! Eeeeewww)
- ...then corrected himself by saying that with good education, kids can find good jobs and provide for their families (nice save?)
- With a slight smile, Jacintha told him straight-up that he won’t win the election (OUCH. not what you want to hear. And she didn’t even try to break it to him gently - I like her!!)
- He asked why and she said, “Wala kang puso.” (OHEMGEE DOES SHE KNOW? Is she Lia?? Does she know he’s a vampire??)
- Gilbert looked so mad and so suspicious at that accusation (grabe naman, dude. How will you ever win an election if you’re glaring all the time?!)
- Jacintha explained her comment, saying that his words lacked sincerity, and said that he should be able to get the people on his side with just his words (yeah, well, he isn’t sincere!! But dang, so she doesn’t know he’s a vampire?)
- Changing gears, Gilbert asked her for her heart’s deepest desire (OH NO he’s gonna do that hypnotic thing he does, like what he did with Ningning! *covers eyes*)
- In a sort of daze (I think she was in a daze, I’m not sure :/ ), Jacintha admitted that what she wanted most was justice, justice for those who were victimized, who were killed (OMG WHO WERE KILLED?! ARE YOU LIA?! GOD THIS IS SUCH A HEADACHE!)
Okay, I have no idea if Jacintha is Lia, but wouldn’t it be awesome if she was?!
Elsewhere, Miyo/Malia (Kathryn Bernardo) was left bleeding on the ground from multiple gunshot wounds and looked to the moon for help. She prayed to her parents to give her more time, to help her hang on to life, because her mission wasn’t over yet before slipping into unconsciousness.
Will Supremo find out the truth behind Jacintha’s identity (is there a truth to find out to begin with>)? And what will happen to Miyo? Catch an all-new episode of “La Luna Sangre” tonight on Primetime Bida after “FPJ's Ang Probinsyano."
