Many tears were shed as Don Roman (Ronaldo Valdez) finally revealed to Lucas (Albie Casiño) that he is the young man’s father in a heart-wrenching scene on “Los Bastardos” last Monday (December 3).
After having had enough of Alba’s (Isabel Rivas) abuse and of lying to the person they loved, Don Roman and Sita (Ana Abad) finally decided to own up to their mistake to Lucas, revealing that he is a Cardinal.
Although the truth about his parentage had not yet sunk in, Lucas did not deny his father, Don Roman, an embrace when the older Cardinal reached out for his son.
This tender moment between father and son earned praises from netizens.
@_1987isondianne tweeted, “Nakakaiyak nman eksena nina albie, Ms Ana abad Santos at Mr Ronaldo valdez excellent episode and scene #LBPagtatapat”
@lvlyy, on the other hand noted how Albie was able to hold his own amongst veteran actors, “I just think Albie Casiño deserves all the best in his craft. Galing! Kaya makisabayan. #LBPagtatapat”
Meanwhile, @imjanilee tweeted about the emotion of the scene, “So ayun na nga, inamin na ni Don Roman na anak nya si Lucas. So heart breaking scene huhuhu #LBPagtatapat”
Despite knowing the truth, there are still many questions on Lucas’ mind. Will he ever find the answers and learn to accept that he is a Cardinal? What will Alba do to keep him out of the Cardinal mansion?
