Jusko, dai. Jusko talaga, dai.
The seventh episode of "Hello, Stranger" dropped last August 5, and the pain train, headed by Xavier (Tony Labrusca) and Mico (JC Alcantara), continued to chug along. First scene palang, nananakit na! Mico finally got to meet and talk to Xavier's on-again-off-again girlfriend Crystal (Gillian Vicencio) and it was peak painful and peak awkward.
Even Crystal could sense the intense, thick layer of yearning between Xavier and Mico because later that night, she sprung the "masaya ka pa ba?" conversation on her boyfriend. We all know that's a bad omen, and indeed, it did lead to Crystal deciding that it was best for them to take another break, just so Xavier could figure out what (and who) he really wanted.

Can we talk about the much-awaited project presentation? O hindi pa ba kaya? Kasi that "Sana ako na lang...sana tayo na lang" killed us and we're not sure if we've recovered yet. The tears! The emotions! The fact that it's a "One More Chance" reference! We're not crying, you're crying.
At hindi pa nagtapos doon, ah. Just when you thought that things couldn't get any more painful in this episode, their conversation after the presentation happened and blew us all out of the water. It was the "final" goodbye we didn't know would actually happen and it broke our hearts.
The Young Padawans reconvened after and they reminded Mico how important it was for him to tell Xavier about his real feelings. It took some convincing, but he caved and called Xavier later that night.
Aminan na ba talaga 'to? Guess we'll have to wait for Episode 8 to find out!
