Star-Studded Finale of ‘May Bukas Pa’ Dominates Mega Manila TV Ratings

The final episode of May Bukas Pa, as powered by over 100 kapamilya stars, garnered sky-high ratings in Mega Manila and nationwide.

The top-rating teleserye “May Bukas Pa” came to a fold last night after a year of inspiring millions of televiewers. The Zaijan Jaranilla-starrer established a record-breaking 64.8% in the TNS nationwide TV Ratings last August 3, 2009. From February 2, 2009 to February 5, 2010, May Bukas Pa was consistent in getting high ratings both nationwide and in Mega Manila.

Here is the recap of the final episode of May Bukas Pa entitled “Amen”:

Now that Santino is back, Tilde’s hope of surviving her fatal disease increases. And in order to assure that the miracle boy will be granting her request, she deviously abducts Mario’s daughter, Joy. Aware of his friend’s current predicament, Santino voluntarily submits himself to Tilde’s request. Immediately Santino tells Mario to bargain him in exchange Joy; and since Mario is left with no other choice, he agrees with the said set up without any hesitation. Out of desperation, Mario tries bringing Santino to Tilde. He was not actually planning to give the child, but due to unforeseen events, the miracle boy ends up falling under her custody. Immediately, she kindly asks the kid to cure her sickness. But after Santino refused to do the task, given the fact that he had already lost the power, Tilde gets extremely furious. And out of her rage, she relentlessly locks the kid up inside the closet. Despite Santino’s unrelenting claim that he had already lost his power to heal, Tilde insistently commands him to lay his miraculous hands on her. And during one of their arguments, the pregnant woman accidentally pushes Santino off a flight of stairs. Unfortunately, the said fall brings Santino’s life in great danger. Apparently, he had hit his head pretty hard on the floor. Thus, causing him to instantly lose his consciousness–just as Rico once predicted. Paulo, together with all the residents of Bagong Pag-asa, solemnly prayed for Santino’s dear life. But despite their appeal, the miracle boy’s previous request still prevailed in the end–he finally reunites with his parents up in heaven. Upon his death, everyone falls in deep grief; and everyone whom he had touched one way or another, including those from far away towns, had given ample time to pay necessary respects to his remains. But on the night of the kid’s supposed funeral, everyone is caught in surprise with yet another miracle. Amazingly, Santino rises back from the dead to continue his mission on earth.

In its second to the last episode, aired last Feb. 4, 2010 (Thursday), May Bukas Pa returned on top of Mega Manila primetime tv ratings with 33.3% signaling an even higher final episode (date to be released soon).
