After their much anticipated first date last September 19, Alden Richards and Yaya Dub aka Maine Mendoza finally saw each other but were inches apart, when Lola Nidora allowed Alden to go to her mansion to court her. But as always, there was a cliffhanger. After Alden said goodbye, Lola Nidora was heard screaming his name. What could be the reason?
