MANILA - Primetime TV's hottest action hero lost his sidekick on Monday night, after a bloody encounter with heavily armed gunmen on "Ang Probinsyano" on Monday.

6. Cardo saved Benny when he and Onyok were trapped inside a delivery van that contained illegal drugs.
7. Benny also readily dusted off his old party jacket to join Cardo in an undercover mission in a party club, where drug deals were made.
8. Barangay officials once tried intimidating Benny with a gun, after they saw him drinking on the streets. Thankfully, Cardo arrived on time and saved him from getting shot.
