The ultimate fight for love between brothers Carlos (Paulo Avelino) and Gael (Jericho Rosales) begins as the story like no other brought to viewers every weeknight by primetime series “Bridges of Love” enters its final three weeks.
After the sudden death of Muloy (Janus Del Prado) that caused Carlos and Mia’s (Maja Salvador) much-awaited wedding to be cancelled, the most kept secrets began to unfold one by one.
The biggest truth was finally revealed last night in an intense faceoff between Gael and Carlos where the latter blurted out who he really is to his unknowing brother. In the middle of a brawl between the two, Gael threatened to kill Carlos. Carlos fired back and told Gael that he had already done it before.
How will Gael accept the fact that his arch enemy is his long lost brother JR? Will Gael’s love for Mia still prevail or will he give way to his brother? Will Carlos ever forgive Gael for the hurt he caused him in the past?
Since “Bridges of Love” premiered on Philippine television in March 2015, viewers were instantly captivated by the story of brothers Carlos and Gael. From the start of their journey as kids when the two dreamt big together to the tragedy that set them apart, avid fans followed how the two grew up to be very different individuals and how their paths crossed many years later without any idea of who each other were. Things heated up even more when Mia entered the picture and sparked the rivalry for love between the two.
With the show’s well-written narrative and top-caliber production, “Bridges of Love” has been consistently dominating its timeslot in national TV ratings and is also one of the top five most watched programs in the country, according to Kantar Media. Last Friday (July 17), the show hits its all-time high national TV rating of 26% versus rival program with only 11.2%.
Its viewership on air also translated online as the program continues to be among the top three most viewed programs on video-on-demand service iWantTV and the top trending topics on social media every night.
“Bridges of Love” is directed by Richard Somes and Will Fredo, and produced by Star Creatives, the makers of phenomenal hit dramas “Princess and I,” “Forevermore,” “The Legal Wife,” and “Pangako Sa’Yo.”
