Maging Sino Ka Man

JB does not think of anything else about Eli and Jackie’s position. Instead he was furious at Jackie for getting drunk and mad at Monique for letting her daughter be in that state. The following day, Fidel refuses to talk to Jackie. His daughter tries to defend Monique but her mother was totally not the cause of his anger. Ever since she returned, she is not acting like her old self. It’s as if the people who cared for her returned a completely different person. She gets more flack from JB. He tells her that she was fortunate to have Eli that time for he would not take advantage of her.

Jackie shares her problems with Eli at work. He then makes things worse when he tells him that this was his last day working for her. Jackie’s plead for him to stay, for he was the only friend she has. Eli felt guilty and agreed to stay. She hugs him tightly. Eli advised her not to change for the sake of pleasing other people. Eli shares his problems to Guada regarding Jackie. She tells him to be firm on his decisions about loving. Eli also asks his mother for help. He asks her to help him find a new love.

Fidel retreats to his study, oblivious of a man observing him from a window. He ignores Jackie’s efforts to make peace and instead picks up a hooker off the streets. The woman, who was a bit off a blabber mouth receives Fidel’s pent up anger and ends up being beaten up. She gets woken up by a hotel staff. She speechlessly grabs the money on the bed and runs off.

Jackie visits Monique to apologize for her behavior. Here, Siony tells her that JB shouted at her mother. She confronts JB about it and tells her Monique deserved it. Jackie took those words as the last straw and walks out. JB tries to stop her from leaving and the commotion they caused attracted Corazon’s attention.

Maging Sino Ka Man

MSKM - 1128.jpgJackie’s happiness was evident when she and her yaya Heidi got home. She felt like a huge burden was lifted off her shoulders. Fidel was looking a bit jealous so Jackie said ‘I love you’ to him several times before retiring to her room. The succeeding days were a breeze for Jackie. She was a bit odd to Heidi and the other house help but they like the new Jackie. Jackie now enjoys taking a bath using a pail and tabo, and spends her free time chatting with the maids. She even does the laundry with them much to Fidel’s surprise. Jackie has started painting again too, and she is starting on a simple farm scene. She visits Monique often now but Fidel is not yet that comfortable with Jackie staying there for hours. He still follows Jackie without her daughter’s knowledge. During one of these visits, Jackie realizes the loneliness Monique felt through Siony. Monique then admits to her that she regrets the things she has done in the past.

maging sino ka man detailed episode summaries: I.jackie dies


The story begins. Fate brings Eli and Jackie together.

MSKM - 1006-01.jpgThe story begins with a man carrying a child, running for his life. Shot and left for dead beside a pier, the baby is saved, floating on the water, in a vat.

At a busy public market, Eli gets into trouble, getting into a fish fight with other coolies like him. Pong, his older brother gets into it too and they are reprimanded by their father, Dadoods. After getting a mouthful from his father, Eli enjoys a bath by the seaside.

Another person is also enjoying herself in the tub, but with the assistance of other people. Jackie is being given a grand spa treatment. She gets dressed in an elegant gown and gets decked with the most precious jewels. Eli looks like a prince himself, walking out of their shabby house in a tuxedo. Yes, they are indeed meeting each other, but not in the way you think. Jackie is the special guest of her boyfriend JB at the inauguration of their new ship while Eli is working there as a waiter. Jackie makes a grand entrance and everyone is mesmerized with her beauty, including JB.

MSKM - 1006-07.jpgEli’s daydreaming halts when Celine calls his attention. She asks him to always serve drinks to a certain table. JB’s talk with Jackie gets interrupted with the presence of his mother, Corazon who introduces him to important businessmen. Jackie then feels left out and Celine sees her change in mood. Eli wishes that the lovely lady will catch his eye and she does. He gives her a smile but Jackie snobs him. This also dampens his mood. Adding to Jackie’s already foul temperament was JB’s request for her to proxy for him at a baptism when she already had plans for that day herself. He thinks that she can easily cancel on her friends, this event is much more important. After a discussion, Jackie agrees. She excuses herself and calls on Eli to get a drink. He’s surprised at Jackie’s actions – she’s downing one glass of champagne after another.

Maging Sino Ka Man

mskm1.jpgWhat if all your life you’ve been true to yourself and the whole world, but when you fall in love you unwittingly build your love on a lie? Can that love survive?


Eli is Mr. Nice Guy of Tondo. Though he was cared for by a family not his own, he grew up on a rich diet of principle and love — love that he received from his adoptive father, Dadoods, his older brother, Pong, and until 5 years ago, his strict but loving mother, Eloisa. He loved them above everything else in this world. He would do anything humanly possible to protect them from harm. Thus, when he learns that his Kuya Pong agrees to be the get-away driver in a kidnapping, he does all he can to save his brother from disaster. But, too late. When he gets to the scene of the crime, he finds his brother badly hurt from the failed kidnapping attempt, entrusting to him the care of the unconscious kidnap victim – Jackie. Against his better judgment, Eli heeds his brother’s plea.

Celine had always been in love with JB Roxas-Berenguer. Back in her hometown Bacolod, the then 15-year old lass met JB, who was then vacationing with his mother Dona Corazon. JB was mourning in the beach, as his father died when they were sailing. Celine befriends him and a puppy love soon ensued.

Corazon later knew of the relationship and told JB she thought it was just sort of a “play”. Corazon hates Imelda, JB’s mother, for reasons believed to be becaused she was a bastard and a slut. (Imelda is Fidel’s sister. They have the same mother.) She believes that Celine was gonna be a slut too. And also because Imelda always teases Corazon of never getting Fidel to fall in love with her.

JB goes back to Manila and meets Jackie. Upon the prodding of Corazon, JB falls for Jackie and soon become boyfriend and girlfriend.

On Jackie’s 18th birthday, Celine, who is Jackie’s cousin and to whom she is very close to, goes to Manila and learns that JB is already in a relationship with Jackie. This is when she begins to become a playgirl and a slut.

She keeps a scrapbook of important events in her life, mostly involving JB, whom she is head over heels in love with.
