REVIEW: Justice prevails, romance rekindles in delightful Hanggang Saan finale

 

It’s been quite a painstaking journey for Sonya (Sylvia), Paco (Arjo Atayde), and Domeng (Yves Flores), but after all the terrible ordeals they’ve gone through, they’ve finally found justice and peace.
And more importantly, prove and express their immeasurable love for one another.
This is what Hanggang Saan attained on its finale #HSAngHangganan


Final encounter


After that climactic, bloody final encounter with Jacob (Ariel Rivera), Sonya and Paco went to the extent of sacrificing their own lives for each other and for Domeng, who once also took the bullet from the same perpetrator previously. 


Jacob had already been slain by the already wounded Paco as Sonya herself bleeds profusely in the arms of Domeng when police arrived.


After Domeng bellows in grief, he then appears on a TV program being interviewed about all the ruckus. 


Why us?, he asks. Why are they paying the price for the crimes of another?


But when the interviewer asks him if he believes that justice has been served, he then beams with a smile.


Yes, he says, after revealing Sonya and Paco survived, stressing the bad guys “don’t win all the time.”


Case closed


Then a healthy Paco and Sonya appear on the TV program as well echoing how justice prevailed and how they would go the extra mile for each other, even lay down their lives for family. Indeed, the case that has burdened them—the Edward Lamoste (Eric Quizon) murder case—is now closed.


Fast forward five years later and we see Domeng as an accomplished architect and Paco already a main partner in the law firm, as they share a sprawling abode with a blissful Sonya. 


And as they spend a vacation in Baler, Quezon, it so happens that Ana (Sue Ramirez) was in the town as well for a charity mission. Then by stroke of fate and destiny, Paco and Ana meet again on the same beach that had become a romantic rendezvous in the distant past.


The kiss


Here is the moment most of their shippers had been waiting for—Paco telling Ana that if he sees her again by a twist of fate, he would not let go of her again and they kiss. 


As they achieved a life they all wanted, all in peace, personal accomplishment, and most importantly, love, Sonya hugs her two sons and says she will always be there for them no matter what.


Indeed, the episode Is a delightful, enjoyable and satisfying ending to the gripping drama that had tugged our hearts for five months. 


While they obviously did not exhibit their dramatic best unlike in previous episodes, the cast was just in an idyllic state, portraying characters that know their hardship is over and ready to start a new, contented, exultant life.


Their happiness certainly resonates and delivers their message on the extent, “hanggang saan,” they can take the genuine, unconditional love a mom would give for their sons, and vice-versa.


Netizens are likewise delighted.
