Eat Bulaga and It’s Showtime continued to battle it out in the ratings game last Saturday, November 28.
ALDUB STAY STRONG. "Tuloy ang forever!" This was the rallying cry for Alden Richards and Yaya Dub (played by Maine Mendoza) in the November 28 episode of Eat Bulaga.
The wedding between Alden and Cindy the model was cancelled, paving the way for AlDub to continue with their love story.
This was after Lola Babah (Ai-Ai delas Alas) read the letter sent by Yaya Dub.
The letter was delivered five days before the wedding, but since Lola Babah is in Russia she wasn’t able to read it.
Yaya Dub wrote: “Sa sulat pong ito, hihingi po ako ng isang pagkakataon sa inyo, na hahanapin namin ni alden ang kaligayan namin. At ng malaman po namin kung kami’y para talaga sa isa’t isa.
“Maganda man po o hindi maging ang istorya namin, babalikan ko po ang araw na ito para ikwento sa magiging apo n’yo na pinagbigyan n’yo ang puso ng apo n’yo at hindi ang yaman sa mundo.”
Yaya Dub asked Lola Babah to give them a chance to be together and to give Alden the freedom to choose whom to love.
Lola Nidora (Wally Bayola) also gave advice to Alden by saying, “Sabi nga ni Yaya sa 'yo Alden, salamat sa 'yo. Ilang beses mo din daw siyang pinatunayan sa akin, pinatunayan ang katatagan mo.
“Ngayon ipakita mo ulit yang katatagan mo. Sana maintindihan mo si Yaya.
“Nagdurugo ang puso mo pero hindi 'yan pagsuko. Iyan ay sakripisyo. Mahirap intindihin pero balang araw maiintindihan mo din yan. Alden, maging mabuti kang asawa kay Cindy.”
After Lola Babah read the letter, she decided to allow Yaya Dub to go to Alden. She ran out from their mansion to finally see her beloved.
The wedding was cancelled but something bad happened to Cindy. She accidentally fell down the stairs and couldn't remember anything, even her own identity.
The #ALDUBStaySTRONG episode ended with Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza posing as if they were about to kiss when the horn sounded, marking the end of Kalyeserye.
