While infidelity has long been a favorite theme in Pinoy teleseryes, not everyone leaves wild impact to viewers’ fascination to the point of setting social media on fire even six years after the original broadcast. A lot more factors must be considered to make a controversial serye truly irresistible including the riveting take on its narrative and the action-packed confrontations. Yes, Pinoys love it best when scenes are fiercer and more scandalous, at least as what we gleaned from The Legal Wife.

And these confrontation scenes earned their rights to be called iconic for spawning online memes and for being parodied time and time again. Especially now that The Legal Wife is having a rerun every afternoon in the Kapamilya Gold block, old familiar feelings of gigil are once again aroused and netizens are engrossed in living the lives of Monica and Nicole, at least through a short parody clip produced on Tiktok.
