Trining can’t accept the fortuneteller’s prediction that the newcomer in their family is the one who’s bringing them the string of unfortunate events! So she asks Lyka to check the tarot cards over again. But she comes up with only one solution, that is, to thwart Bong from their home. Unknown to Trining, Lyka is a part of Marcial’s wicked schemes.Kok
When Nanding learns about this, he merely brushes off the idea that Bong is responsible for their ill-luck. But since Trining is adamant to confront the boy about it, she and Nanding decide to discuss the issue with the kids, only to back out after Bong and Anna hand them their profit from their garage sale!
However, Jimboy overhears his parents argue about the issue. Charisse tells Marcial that Nanding is not the kind of person who believes in such nonsense particularly when it concerns his beloved adopted son. With that knowledge, Jimboy only grows harsher towards Bong. He further outcasts him in school for fear of acquiring misfortune.
This brings about a squabble between them which pushes the school principal to call on their moms. Charisse denies her son’s statement that he heard her admit that Bong is a bringer of misfortune. Worried about where all this talk is coming from, Bong asks his mom for an explanation later on. Trining tells him the truth then but she assures the kid not to concern himself about it anymore.
At midnight, Lucio goes back at the orphanage to steal the box where all Bong’s precious belongings are stored. However, Robin discovers him and immediately shouts for help from the other orphans. With this, Sister Aida affirms the usually naughty kid. On the other hand, it seems that Lucio still managed to get some of Bong’s pertinent papers!
However, Doña Ingrid is unhappy with the way Nicassio is handling the search for her lost grandson. Hence, she decides to terminate Lucio’s services for unearthing nothing significant throughout the years. Nicassio implores her not to do so, but she merely threatens to discard him if he further complains.
Back to the Kalugdans’ home, Anna refuses to believe the fortuneteller’s forecast. She confides to Peping that she has seen Bong’s amazing character. As such, she muses that perhaps the newcomer that they were talking about may not be her brother but Kokey instead!
Unknown to them, this unfair suspicion hits Kokey hard and makes him feel depressed! Not wanting to add to their problems anymore, he tearfully bids Anna and Bong goodbye while they were sleeping!

In the town of Sta. Maria, the poor couple Marcelo and Linda once wished to the Virgin Mary to fulfill their dream of having a child. After a couple of years, they miraculously find a child: a little angel they believed was heaven-sent. They named her Anghelita.
But the baby was sickly, and one day her sickness brought her to the point of near death. Anghelita never made it to the hospital to have her sickness cured. But instead of dying, the baby became blind instead.
Meanwhile, the town of Sta. Maria was plagued by bad luck: suddenly there were no more crops to harvest; famine ensued after a long, arduous storm — and every single person in town attributed this bad luck to the mysterious loss of the Virgin Mary’s crown.
Everyone in town thought that keeping the baby Anghelita would bring more bad luck to the town. And so they abandoned the baby Anghelita. She fell into the hands of the local outcast, the mysterious and elusive Magdalena, considered a witch by the locals.
Raised by Magdalena, Anghelita became a servant to the mean-spirited woman. And if that was not enough, she was still seen as a curse by the other locals. Mistreated and ostracized, Anghelita longed for her mother and vowed to find her someday.
Anghelita’s only friend was a hunchback named Gabriel, the local bell-ringer who lived in the church tower. Like Anghelita, he was looking for his biological parents. Both outcasts, they found solace in each other amidst all the hatred hurled at them by the locals.
Things seemed hopeless for Angelita until the Virgin Mary starts communicating with her in her dreams. And in a moment of life and death, Mother Mary gives Anghelita her eyes so that she can finally see and help the people of Sta. Maria.
Aside from the gift of sight, Mama Mary had also bestowed upon Anghelita different abilities that will lead her to happy, scary, terrifying and heartwarming adventures that will bring her closer to the person to whom she rightfully belongs — her birth mother.
