The General’s Daughter recently broke the hearts of their viewers after killing of Nanang Sabel and Elai, the fan-favorite mother-son tandem of The Diamond Star Maricel Soriano and Arjo Atayde on the show.
When Elai, who was diagnosed with autism, knew the identity of one Tiago (Tirso Cruz III)’s spies in the military that can jeopardize his whole scheme, the terrorist leader had him kidnapped then shot while surrounded by his own goons.
As Elai’s mother Nanang Sabel entered the fray, she went down and teared up as she saw her dead son on the ground. She retaliated by throwing a huge rock onto Tiago’s head. Out of anger, Tiago shot Sabel just as Rhian (Angel Locsin) arrived. Rhian tried to revive the two, but it was all too late. Mother and son were already dead from the gunshot, while our lead star broke down crying.
The death of these two beloved characters became a trending topic worldwide, with netizens on Twitter airing out their sadness, heartbreak, and, at the same time, their prase over the performance of the actors during the sorrowful scene.
This is by far the most heartbreaking and breathtaking scene ever in a Philippine television. Legit emotion and incomparable acting. @143redangel is indeed, without a doubt, the best in her generation. She is truly the Queen of Action and Drama.
