Aren’t you excited that Freeridge is now available to stream on Netflix? In this new teen series, we get to see some of the On My Block cast return. But not all original cast members who returned reprised their roles from On My Block. Peggy Blow, who played Abuelita/Marisol in On My Block, returned in a new role. We’ve got you covered if you’re curious about who Peggy Blow portrays in Freeridge.

Spoilers from Freeridge ahead.

Freeridge follows a group of friends who work together to undo a curse they believe they accidentally released from a mysterious box. Cam had bought the mysterious box at the Martinez’s yard sale. He bought the box to give to Andre as a gift in hopes that he’ll break up with him. But then a mystery lady shows up and offers to buy the box for a large sum of money. The mystery lady is Peggy Blow’s character.

Below, we shared the name of Peggy Blow’s character and how she’s involved in the show’s plot.

Who does Peggy Blow play in Freeridge?

Peggy plays the role of Mariluna. However, we don’t find out her character’s name until episode 3. Before the third episode, the core four (Gloria, Ines, Demi, and Cam) believed the mystery woman was Abuelita/Marisol’s ghost coming back to haunt them for taking her box.

After Gloria rejects Mariluna’s offer to buy the box, Mariluna tells her that the box is cursed. This leads the core four to believe that they’re now cursed since they’re in possession of the box. It doesn’t help that weird things start happening to them and their loved ones. This is what sets them out on a mission to reverse the curse.

We learn a little more about Mariluna in episode 4 when Geny and Ruben Martinez, Gloria, and Demi meet up with the Turners to get information on Mariluna. They contact Jamal through a gadget, and he tells them that Abuelita/Marisol has a twin. Mariluna is the twin sister of Abuelita/Marisol.

But we don’t find out why Mariluna wanted the box until episode 7. After trailing Mariluna to her house, Gloria approaches her door but is stopped by Mariluna. Mariluna invites her in, and they eventually start bonding.

Mariluna tells Gloria that when she was younger, she met a wealthy American man named Henry Fordman. Their relationship was going well until he insisted that she disown her family and heritage. Mariluna decides to do what Henry asks of her, but not before giving the box to Marisol. After many years pass, Mariluna begins to miss her sister dearly. So on Henry’s 50th birthday, she sends a birthday invitation to Marisol, but Marisol never shows up. The reason why Mariluna wanted the box is because it’s something that she and Marisol shared.

After talking about Marisol and the box, Mariluna and Gloria form a strong bond. Then, Mariluna invites Gloria, the rest of the core four, and the Martinez family to her house for Thanksgiving dinner.

So to sum it all up, Mariluna is the twin sister of Abuelita/Marisol. They were close growing up and shared a box they would put stuff inside. However, Mariluna distanced herself from her family after she started dating a man named Henry Fordman. But she made sure to leave the box with Marisol before leaving with Henry. Lastly, her reason for coming to Freeridge was to get the box back because she missed her sister.
