MANILA - A confrontation scene between Angel Locsin and Jericho Rosales in "The Legal Wife" dominated conversations on Twitter Tuesday night, as the primetime series neared the revelation of an extra-marital affair involving the lead characters.
In the episode of "The Legal Wife" aired on April 22, a fuming Monica (Locsin) confronts Adrian (Rosales) after she discovers that he did not not meet his friend, Bradley (Janus del Prado), as he had told her.
Even as Monica asks her husband directly why he lied to her, Adrian pretends to be confused by the accusation. Monica is not convinced, however, and warns Adrian not to let her catch him with someone else.
The confrontation follows days of suspicion on the part of Monica, who earlier found out that Adrian bought an expensive necklace which never turned up as a gift to her, his mother, or sister.
Unknown to Monica, her husband gave the necklace to Nicole (Maja Salvador), his mistress and her best friend in whom she has confided her doubts about Adrian.
As the couple's confrontation aired on Tuesday, "The Legal Wife" generated buzz on Twitter where it became the No. 1 trending topic both locally and worldwide.
Well after the episode aired, its official hashtag, "#TLWTheUnveling," and the terms "Go Monica" and "Good Mistress" were still trending on the micro-blogging site.
"The Legal Wife," which is under the direction of Rory Quintos and Dado Lumibao, airs weeknights after "Ikaw Lamang" during ABS-CBN's primetime block.
