In the last episode of Onanay, Lucas(Wendell Ramos) fulfills his promise to Onay (Jo Berry), when he returned Mailan (Mikee Quintos) and Natalie (Kate Valdez), before entering prison.

As much as i do not like the idea of Helena not having a realization of what she did and not able to seek forgivenes from Onay and her family, but damn Wendell Ramos is really an underrated actor. Every gesture, delivery, crying scenes are all on point. ❤ #OnanayFinale

I literally cried. @ValdezKate_ just proved that she’s grown as an artist. I wish seeing her again on tv. Kudos to Wendell for delivering such natural gesture, we are so much moved. Another job well done @gmanetwork and casts! #OnanayFinale pic.twitter.com/ZC0J1Xi0v6
