After more than eight months of hooking us with its ever-scorching scenes and compelling us with the superb performances of the actors who brought life to the popular characters we all admired, the time has already come for us to bid farewell to the highly controversial primetime series Halik.
While waiting for its sure-fire finale tonight, April 26, let’s take a look back first on the five most talked about scenes of the teleserye that made us more excited for the upcoming episodes and ensued to hullaballoos in the online world.
Double Dinner Date
Based on how the place was set up, we all assumed that it’s going to be a whimsical evening for our beloved four leads as they went on a double dinner date at the Corpuz residence. Unfortunately, it didn’t went that way as it turned really intense and awkward instead.
After the parking lot incident which involved Ace (Sam Milby) and Jade (Yam Concepcion), their spouses Jacky (Yen Santos) and Lino (Jericho Rosales), respectively, have grown more suspicious about the real deal between them. Ace explained their side of the story, telling them that he was with Jade that time for they were supposed to meet and discuss the philandering acts of ex-lovers Lino and Jacky, but Lino didn’t believe him and retorted that perhaps it’s him and Jade who has an illicit affair, as what the evidence he acquired suggested.
Just when Lino was about to show them his copy of the CCTV footage taken in the parking lot, Jade wasn’t able to hold back her emotions and stopped Lino from doing so. In the end, that supposedly intimate evening turned out to be the beginning of the disaster they all have to face.
Caught in the act
Of all the scenes included in this list, this is, without a doubt, the most controversial as it spawned to tumultuous reactions from the netizens and to a lot of witty memes that circulated on different social media platforms.
After a very long time of speculating and gleaning more evidences to prove their assumptions, Lino finally found the strongest proof of Ace and Jade’s adulterous deed as they caught them torridly kissing in the club. In spite of the pain inflicted by what he had just witnessed, Lino was still able to muster enough strength to confront them and even almost punched Ace to death because of wrath.
Playing the victim
As Jade claimed that Ace raped her and even filed a case against him after their sex video scandal spread like wildfire, Lino and his family welcomed her back to their residence to show their support to the another battle she was facing.
However, Lino came home so enraged one day and ordered Jade to leave because he really couldn’t handle anymore her dishonesty and the pain she caused after a certain “Joel” confessed something about Jade and Ace’s relationship. Jade kept on pleading to him that she’s telling the truth and imposed that she’s the actual victim in this situation, but her appeal fell on deaf ears as Lino had grown more stern and furious towards her.
It wasn’t only Jade and Ace who have shared steamy moments in the series, but the tandem of Lino and Jacky as well. While many are still hopeful that their relationships with their respective spouses will be eventually fixed, there’s a huge portion of the viewers on the other hand who yearn for Lino and Jacky to rekindle the romance they once had.
And it seemed that that wish was granted when the ex-lovers went intimate while trapped inside a locked storage room. But our hearts immediately got broken when it was revealed that it was just a figment of Lino’s imagination, or his hidden desire to once again touch his former sweetheart. Albeit, this still deserves to have a spot in this list!
Jade vs The Bartolomes
This scene is just one of the many fiery encounters of Jade with the family of Lino, but we chose this because this exhibited how she’d gone irrational and insane for the sake of defending herself from all their allegations and persuading the people to give her their sympathies. This also sparked the next climactic scenes that we saw in the succeeding episodes as Lino relentlessly fought for what is right and to protect their son, CJ.
These scenes may help us cope from the Halik finale as these are probably already engraved in the hearts and minds of the audiences for a very long time, but we hope that these will help you to remember that there was once a great, riveting, and one-of-a-kind story like that of Ace, Jacky, Jade, and Lino.
Ang ‘Halik’ nila, paniguradong mami-miss mo, so don’t miss the last episode of Halik on Friday, April 26, after The General’s Daughter.
