In a climactic episode aptly dubbed “Pasabog Reveal,” a five-way confrontation finally revealed the central affair in the primetime series “The Broken Marriage Vow.”
The Monday episode of the ABS-CBN drama followed Jill’s (Jodi Sta. Maria) vengeful plan to expose her husband David’s (Zanjoe Marudo) romance with Lexy (Sue Ramirez), in front of the latter’s parents.
Jill tricked David into having dinner with the Luceros, who were equally surprised by the unannounced visit at their home. Nathalia (Rachel Alejandro) had invited Jill over but not until a week later.
Nathalia and Fred (Art Acuña) obliged nonetheless, and insisted on hosting Jill and David for dinner — which meant they would come face to face with Lexy.
As Jill had planned, she managed to gather David, Lexy, and both of Lexy’s parents in one room, but not before she purposely shattered a ceramic sculpture Lexy had gifted her father, in a hint of what was about to unfold.
Seated at the dinner table, Jill feigned pleasantries and small talk, but with sharp topics: Lexy’s mystery boyfriend, and David’s infidelity.
“Walang hiya ka,” Lexy warned.
“Walang hiyang galit na galit sa ‘yo,” Jill retorted.
Visibly shocked, Fred and Nathalia were confronted with a jarring truth in Jill’s words: “Your daughter is sleeping with my husband… Nabuntis ni David ang anak ninyo at pumunta siya ng Amerika para ipa-abort ang bata.”
The resulting chaos saw Lexy hitting Jill, who then triumphantly exited the house; and an enraged Fred tackling David to the ground and rebuking his daughter.
As the episode aired on TV Monday night, its official hashtag #TBMVPasabogReveal ranked among the top trends on Twitter in the Philippines, with viewers applauding not only the performances of the actors, but the direction, cinematography, and scoring of the pivotal dinner scene.
