After airing for three months, GMA-7 aired the final episode of My Love from the Star.
The Philippine version of this Koreanovela showed how an alien fell in love with a human months before he was set to return to his home planet.
In the August 11 episode, the love story of Steffi Chavez (Jennylyn Mercado) and Matteo Domingo (Gil Cuerva) had to end abruptly with Matteo leaving.
Matteo promised Steffi that he will return. His departure left Steffi crushed and depressed, greatly affecting her work and sense of self. She stopped attending her tapings. Good thing, her ever reliable Cathy (Moi Bien) kept her company, making her laugh. Steffi finally came to terms with her grief and moved on.
Meanwhile, Yuan (Migo Adecer) makes an announcement to the press about the discovery of a new planet. The younger brother of Steffi named the planet: Matteo 717.
His mother, Lynelle (Glydel Mercado), questioned why he called it Matteo. Yuan explained that he gave it that name since he considers Matteo his mentor. Yuan declared, “I believe that one day, he will come back to Ate. He loves her.”
The alien Matteo made several fleeting appearances. Matteo appeared to Steffi and after several seconds, he vanished into thin air. Steffi was calling out his name but he was nowhere to be found. Matteo also made himself visible briefly to Mr. Jang, his lawyer and a father figure” while he was still on earth.
Matteo’s last appearance was with Jackson (Gabby Eigermann) who was jailed for his crimes.
Steffi has taken hold of her life once more. The superstar actress was shown attending a red carpet event. Dressed in a stunning and sprawling gown, Steffi dramatically gets off the stretch limo and makes a grand entrance.
It was mentioned that she is nominated for Best Actress.
Without any warning, time stood still with everyone not moving except for Steffi. Matteo made his grand entrance. He walked towards Steffi who was amazed and overjoyed to see him. They hugged tightly and kissed sweetly. While they kissed, everything became animated once more.
The final scene centers on Steffi and Matteo’s forthcoming wedding. Steffi, together with her family waited for Matteo. Matteo appeared and “formally” asked Steffi to marry him.
Steffi has accepted her fate with Matteo and they get married despite the uncertainty of the situation.
“Kung tatanungin niyo ako kung mahirap ang sitwasyon ko, ‘oo’ ang sagot ko,” admitted Steffi.
“Mahirap yung nawawala yung mahal mo ng biglaan. But it also makes me love him more dahil hindi namin kakampi ang oras. Pwedeng huling naming pagkikita…huli pala talaga. Kaya I make sure sa bawat sandaling kasama ko siya…it’s special, memorable… and that makes every moment with him, precious…”
