The moment every ReTox shipper has been waiting for is finally here! ReTox: 2 Be Continued has started airing on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube channel. We’ve recently finished watching Episode 2. And it’s more ‘kilig’ and enthralling than what we’d expected because of the revealing backstories of the lead characters, Red (Yves Flores) and Tox (Gillian Vicencio), whom we first met in the KathNiel-starrer “2 Good 2 Be True.”
Yves and Gillian were serious when they said that they levelled up things for their comeback series. So far, we’ve seen them share sweet outdoor dates (with isaw, of course), make awkwardly cute ‘da-moves’, and get covered in feathers after chasing a chicken.
Sounds like a lot of fun, right? Here’s an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip of Episode 2 that will transport you to the series’ cheerful set.
In the video, Yves and Gillian could be seen listening intently to director Paco Sta. Maria, who was very hands-on in detailing his vision for every scene. Even the extras are give na give with their performance, like the isaw vendor who dared Red to catch a chicken.
Since the 2nd episode required dramatic scenes, Yves and Gillian worked together in memorizing their lines. He was caught telling her to focus on the dialogue first and let the emotions flow later on. Well, even after the director says “cut,” ReTox goes on with their usual clingy behavior.
And if that isn’t enough to satisfy your ReTox cravings, here’s a bunch of BTS photos.
Our takeaway from these BTS shots is how real the chemistry between ReTox is – you can’t fake this connection.
The two couldn’t stop clinging to each other.
Here’s a cute snap from that scene of Tox wiping off the feathers on Red’s face:
It’s clear how the team shares their energy with one another. Direk Paco tirelessly guides his actors to create the perfect scene.
Yves and Gillian are joined by Earl Ignacio, Mercedes Cabral, and Kate Yalung.
You can still catch up with the first episodes of “ReTox: 2 Be Continued”. Part 1 of the series will air from August 1 to 4, while Part 2 will drop on August 8 to 11, every 6 pm, on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube channel.
