MANILA – "The Legal Wife" was once again top topic on Twitter, both in the Philippines and worldwide, as it aired its penultimate episode on Thursday night, wherein Adrian (Jericho Rosales) wakes up from a coma after he figured in a road accident.
In the June 12 of the top-rating soap, Monica (Angel Locsin) rejects Nicole’s (Maja Salvador) plea to allow her to see Adrian.
The show later on shows Monica talking to Adrian, who was in a state of coma. She tells him how glad she was in the 6 years that they were together.
“Sa anim na taon na pagsasama natin, walang araw na hindi ako nagpasalamat sa Diyos na binigay ka niya sa akin kasi napakabuti mong tao... Adrian please, kailangan kitang maging matapang. Lumaban ka para sa mga anak natin,” she says.
Adrian then wakes up, grateful to see Monica by his side despite what he has done that cost their relationship.
Nicole later goes to the hospital to sneak into Adrian’s room to have a last conversation with him. She is, however, unaware that her son Jacob was sleeping in the backseat of her car.
Rushing to Adrian’s room as Monica arranges the hospital bills, Nicole unknowingly leaves her son inside the car.
Nicole, however, leaves Adrian broken-hearted as the latter tells her to just leave him and Monica be.
“Nicole may anak tayong dalawa, hindi magbabago yun. Pero umaasa ako na sana kahit hindi tayo nagsasama, maging magkaibigan tayo bilang mga magulang ni Jacob. Para kay Jacob,” Adrian says.
To which Nicole replies, “Masaya ako buhay ka. Sobrang masaya ako buhay ka. Sobrang mahal kita.”
The last scene shows Nicole’s son losing consciousness inside the car.
As “The Legal Wife” airs, netizens were raving about the episode commenting on every noteworthy scene from Adrian’s firm will to fix his marriage, to Nicole’s neglect of her son.
Some were also speculating on how the soap will end tomorrow.
In the preview for Friday’s finale, a confused Monica tells her mom that her friends are asking her why she hasn’t left Adrian.
