Artnodes got floored by the exceptionally played scene.

Ian, meanwhile, got amazed by Andrea del Rosario.
“I did not expect Andrea Del Rosario to pull this off. Like I am so used in seeing her just play a hot girl back in the 2000s that I can’t believe that she can stand toe to toe with these veteran actors,” he recalled.
Arcilla, whose exemplary brilliance is no secret to everybody, impressed @VirtuosoNase.
“Mr. John Arcilla ate that scene. New actors and actresses should learn from him,” he tweeted.

“Kainis si @JohnArcilla in this scene. Kung makatulak at hagis kay Andrea del Rosario may kasama pa tapon ng pillow. Hmmmp. Chos. Galing nila dito, silang 3 husay!,” said Dee, who gave equal appreciation to the three actors.
Lisa, meanwhile, took notice of how the scene was a reminder about how frightening and dangerous meeting a homophobic person can be. “this is so scary tho??? there’s nothing like an angry homophobic man finding about you and your partner. THAT’S scary as fuck,”
Other viewers, meanwhile, got massively impressed by Del Rosario.
