Fans of "Ang Probinsyano" were on the edge of their seats again on Tuesday, as the top-rating series aired yet another thrilling episode.
Cardo (Coco Martin) tries to save the "first family" from getting ambushed by a crime group, whose aim is to kill the president (Rowell Santiago). The president, the first lady (Dawn Zulueta), and their kids find themselves at the center of a car chase.
The family is eventually cornered by the goons, who ceaselessly fired at them, leaving the president and the first lady in critical condition.
While many were saddened by the incident, some were simply impressed by Zulueta's effective portrayal of her role.
A few netizens begged the producers of "Ang Probinsyano" to extend Zulueta's participation in the show.
Desperate, some fans even volunteered to "donate blood" for Zulueta's character.
Two years ago, also in September, another well-loved "Ang Probinsyano" character, Verna (Agot Isidro), was shot to death in a bloody encounter.
Now on its third year, "Ang Probinsyano" airs weeknights after "TV Patrol."
