The finale highlighted that vengeance ultimately belongs to the law and Divine judgment. Time will come that the ruthless people, however they try to escape jeopardy, will harvest the evil they sow. The Hernandezes finally faced their downfall, with Amelia (Cherry Pie Picache) seized by the authorities and Anton (Zanjoe Marudo) punished by a harrowing, literally ‘heart-stopping’ death.

Celine (Angelica Panganiban) and Emman (Paulo Avelino)’s chilling confrontation scene with Amelia sparked viewers’ moral reasoning, thinking about the right call, “Kailangan mong sumuko. Ang dami mo ng kasalanan, Amelia. Ang dami mo ng buhay na kinuha.” One said Amelia and her accomplices must serve time, “Pagbabayaran niyo lahat ng krimen ninyo. Doon kayo magbagong-buhay sa kulungan.” It was also a reminder that one mistake cannot be undone by another evil deed, “Harapin natin ang problema natin kaysa gagawa pa tayo ng masama.”

Positive words were given to Cherry Pie for her ‘gigil’-inducing portrayal and imbibing Amelia’s evil persona from head to toe. The show likewise heaped praises for its perfect concoction of drama and action. “Akala ko Ang Probinsyano na yung pinapaanood ko. Ang ganda ng tapatan scenes, fight scenes dito sa Walang Hanggang Paalam,” a viewer reacted.

Netizens found Celine and Emman’s characters truly inspiring, taking the spotlight on the former’s female strength and the latter being a dignified family man.

“Si Celine, nagmamakaawa na! Nawala na ang lahat sa kanya pero ang galing niya. Ang tapang niya! Gagawin niya ang lahat para mahanap si Robbie.”

“Ginagalingan naman talaga ni Angelica Panganiban! Alam mo ‘yung character ni Celine, siya ‘yung strong na susuungin lahat pero soft siya pagdating sa anak at pamilya niya. Very Angge!”

“’Yan ang mabuting ama kasi kahit pwede na siyang gumawa ng masama, pinipili niya pa rin gawin ‘yung tama,” commented one netizen on Emman desperately begging for Leo (Tonton Guttierez)’s cooperation in finding Robbie (Robbie Wachtel).

The much-awaited clash and reunion happened. Emman arrived just in time to save Celine and Robbie from Amelia. One described the standoff as “monstrous.” After a chilling back-and-forth, Sam (Arci Munoz) cornered Amelia and paralyzed the latter with a gunshot wound. Netizens sighed in relief as Celine and Emman finally reunited with their son.  

The final gap left viewers smiling in ‘kilig’ and asking for a second season. Emman proposed to Celine during Robbie’s birthday celebration while Sam and Caloy (JC Santos) held hands in secret. Viewers said their expectations were met. One reacted: “Natupad ‘yung wish ko na si Celine at Emman ‘yung magkatuluyan sa ending. Wala bang Part 2?”

Paulo and Angelica captured hearts indeed through their mesmerizing chemistry. Fans likewise reflect on the power of family and true love, noting how even the most devastating trials still led Emman and Celine to each other.

“Karapat-dapat si Celine kay Emman kasi nagmamahalan sila.”

“Sabi ko na nga ba, ‘yung mga magkakatuluyan ‘yung mga mag-ex din, eh. Pero hindi naman talaga nawala ‘yung pagmamahalan nilang dalawa.”

“Si Robbie pa ‘yung naging dahilan kung bakit sila nagkabalikan. Mahal pa rin talaga nila ang isa’t isa.

Yes, someone said it for us: “Sana all.”

With its happy ending, Walang Hanggang Paalam emphasized the unbeatable power of family and love. We end this video with this short but sweet comment from a netizen: “Hanggang sa huli, family is forever.”
