Warning: spoilers ahead
After 13 episodes, 2gether: The series has come to an end – and just as they have done every Friday for the past few months, the show's fans lit up social media as they said goodbye to their beloved series.
The Thai Boys Love series has kept many Filipinos company throughout the lockdown, giving fans something to smile (and cry, and laugh, and scream in kilig) about every Friday night whenever a new episode aired on GMMTV's YouTube channel.
The show follows a college student named Tine (Metawin Opas-iamkajorn, or Win), who asks one of their university's most popular boys Sarawat (Vachirawit Chiva-ree, or Bright) to fake-date him so he can shake off a relentless admirer. (READ: Why the Thai BL show '2gether: The Series' works)
As the story goes, their pretend romance slowly turns real, through a lot of covert glances, love songs played on guitar, and more feels than a single person can handle.
Even before the finale aired, the hashtag #2getherTheSeriesFinale already trended on Twitter as fans thanked the show's cast for giving them life during the lockdown.
Fans got even more emotional as the finale aired, and they watched Tine, Sarawat, and other couples on the show get their happy endings. Of course, by the end of it all, people couldn't help but hope for a season 2.
There is no word yet on whether the show will have a second season, though Bright and Win said they hope there would be one.
Whether the story of Sarawat and Tine continues or not though, one thing's for sure: their Filipino fans will not forget them anytime soon, and will probably be watching the series over and over again for weeks to come. – Rappler.com
