MANILA — “The General’s Daughter” leapt to a record-high viewership on Thursday as the titular characters, Marcial and his assassin Rhian, finally came to face with the awareness of their actual blood relation.
The May 16 airing of the Dreamscape action-drama registered a nationwide rating of 36.7%, twice the number garnered by its rival program with just 18.1%, according to data from Kantar Media.
“Pagtatapat,” now the highest rating episode of the series since its January debut, saw Rhian (Angel Locsin) confronting Tiago (Tirso Cruz III), the man whom she believed to be her father and who raised her as a military double agent.
All her life, Rhian was trained by Tiago to become a ruthless assassin, with the ultimate goal of killing her actual father, Marcial (Albert Martinez). But with the truth revealed, Rhian finally turned against the “family” whose only objective was to weaponize her.
