Fate finally aligned for Aurora (Sharon Cuneta) and Oscar (Rowell Santiago) as they cross paths, carrying a tiny unspoken love that never died through the years. The reunion and charming display of chemistry surely put ShaWell fans in the mood for reminiscing, so here’s a Friday 5 video that highlights their tale in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
The majestic waterfalls in the town of San Andres used to be a witness to Aurora and Oscar’s romance. Flashback scenes brought us to a time when Oscar and Aurora were young and adoring each other, full of dreams for the future and the grit to fight for their love. They rode a raft to the waterfalls where they confessed their feelings. They made their relationship official. He also promised to be with Aurora once she goes back to the States.
We can call it daydreaming but Oscar, a fisherman, was determined to give Aurora a comfortable life despite their opposing social status. She likewise looked forward to raising a family with him. However, Aurora got scared at one point, knowing her father Don Ignacio (Tommy Abuel) will disapprove of their relationship.
Don Ignacio was against Oscar, thinking the poor man would ruin their reputation as the most influential family in town. As soon as he found out about his daughter’s connection to Oscar, he immediately asked his assistant Lucia (Vangie Labalan) to book Aurora’s flight to the States.
Eavesdropping on the conversation, Aurora knew her dad would do everything to take her away. At that point, she felt scared and like there was no other option but to elope with her boyfriend.
The lovers stayed at Oscar’s place. Aurora met Oscar’s friends Lolita (Rosanna Roces) and Armando (John Estrada). Things were rosy, albeit more humble and ordinary than what Aurora used to have. Life was simple but she found unadulterated joy in being a good partner to Oscar while anticipating their first child. There was a scene where Oscar came home to Aurora stitching baby clothes with their chosen name – Maria Isabel.
Aurora gave birth to Maria Isabel. The promising days, however, will not last long. Don Ignacio’s men led by his brother Eduardo (Roi Vinzon) broke the silence of the night when they attacked the small town. Don Ignacio’s order was to not leave a single person alive until they get Aurora back.
The incident killed not only the people of San Andres but also Aurora and Oscar’s relationship. Years passed, they met again in the same town, maybe not to get the closure Aurora had always wanted but maybe to get a second chance at love.
They unleashed pent-up emotions in the recent episodes. Watch where their conversation will lead them in the next episodes of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, weeknights, on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z.
