All shows do come to an end, but not all end with flying colors.
Some end early due to lack of viewer patronage while others simply ended as mandated by their scheduled exposure.
In every TV show, the episodes considered to be the most important are the pilot (opening) and ending sequences because this is where they leave lasting impressions with televiewers.
And for 2018, Philippine television has been witness to different teledramas that entered and exited in different highs and lows.
