Wish Ko Lang’s Halloween Special this Saturday (October 27) gave veteran actress Glenda Garcia quite a scare. To portray her character in the said special, Glenda had to lay down inside a real coffin. Her co-star, Kapuso actor Edgar Allan Guzman, meanwhile, showcased another facet of his acting skills as a spiritually-possessed son.
The story centers on the unnerving experience of a family following the death of their matriarch. Leonora’s (Glenda) family mourned her demise. But it was her favorite son, Jojo (Edgar Allan), who was the one most affected by her passing. He would have wanted to further give back to his mom all the sacrifice she endured for their family.
Yet it seems Leonora is not ready to leave her family as well. Guests are disturbed when Leonora allegedly possesses some of those present in her wake. Her family is further worried when Leonora takes over Jojo’s body. Leonora insists it is not yet time for her to leave and points to her husband who according to Leonora did her grave sin.
What lies behind this alleged spiritual disturbance in Leonora’s family? Will she continue to possess Jojo for her to communicate all her grudge? Does Jojo has to suffer her mother’s wrath when he did not do anything bad against her in the first place?
Joining Glenda and Edgar Allan in this heartwarming episode as well are Nats Sitoy and Dan Alvaro.
Catch Wish Ko Lang with host Vicky Morales, this Saturday after Tadhana on GMA-7.
