Mara is alive!

It was a shocking moment for fans of Mara Clara as ABS-CBN on Wednesday revealed that the character is not dead. Mara is alive and is now under the care of “Nanding” (Richard Quan) and “Barang” (Jan Marini Alano) as the added characters in the teleserye (respectively in a special participation role). They are a couple residing in a place called “San Roque.”

According to “Barang,” Mara was wounded and unconscious when found across the street by a certain “Otoy” who on the other hand instructed “Nanding” to hide Mara from people who wanted to find and kill her.

Mara is in a state of amnesia. Clara, meanwhile, is being haunted by memories of Mara through dreams.
