The plot of Kamandag continues to thicken as the GMA-7 show nears its conclusion. This telefantasya is based on the Carlo J. Caparas comic strip that appeared in the early '80s. It premiered on November 19, 2007 and stars Richard Gutierrez as Vergel / Kamandag. He is the son of the half-snake, half-mortal King Saban (Gardo Versoza) and a human named Alicia (Eula Valdez).
Last week, Vergel came face to face with Lucero (Mark Anthony Fernandez) after Jenny (Jewel Mische) was admitted to a hospital for snakebite. Vergel blamed Lucero for what happened to Jenny, but Lucero blamed Ditas (Ehra Madrigal).
Lily (Maxene Magalona) is the childhood friend of Vergel who is secretly in love with him. She agreed to take care of Jenny—even though it breaks her heart to take care of the girl whom Vergel has chosen to love. Lily was spotted by Eleanor (Alessandra de Rossi) who quickly called the police to report her whereabouts.
As Vergel was fighting with Lucero and Ditas, Lily's life became endangered at the hands of Eleanor. With everyone's attention focused on the Ambogs rescuing Lily, one of Abdon's (Ariel Rivera) men tried to kill Jenny, but was interrupted by a shot from Eleanor. Meanwhile, a few other men of Abdon's had attacked Alicia, still on Abdon's orders.
Kamandag airs weeknights after another show conceptualized by Carlo J. Caparas, Joaquin Bordado.
