As they tread on separate directions, they fell in l^ve once again and got hitched with Ace (Sam) and Jade (Yam) respectively.
But l^ve, lust, and an unforgettable past would make their paths intertwine, resulting to either exhilarating moments or scorching clashes.
Although their unfaithfulness is already blatant, each of them will try to cover up their wrongdoings and fight for their marriage.
The relatable characters and concept

For sure, many will relate to the personalities of the main characters. Jade is ambitious and wants to have a secured life. Jacky yearns for acceptance and seems to be still locked up in her past. Ace is a certified womaniser who despite being married still flirts. Whilst Lino is a family-oriented man who doesn’t want to be separated from his family in spite of getting married.
Besides, couples may also identify with the situations that will be shown in the series.

Karma finally caught up with Jade and Ace, and a second chance for Lino and Jacky landed an opportune time in the finale of the hit primetime drama “Halik”.
In the final episode of the RBS Drama production, Jade (Yam Concepcion) and Ace (Sam Milby) both landed in jail for their crimes, including adultery.
Their respective former spouses, Lino (Jericho Rosales) and Jacky (Yen Santos), finally had the chance to rekindle their teenage romance, but decided against it as they prioritised healing from the tumultuous years of their intertwined lives.
Jade, who has recovered from tuberculosis, was afforded a second chance to be a mother to CJ, her son with Lino.
After serving her sentence, Jade found a new home with her “sissy,” a reformed Marissa (Nina Dolino), and managed an amicable relationship with Lino after realising her mistakes, and asking for forgiveness.
Ace, meanwhile, remained in jail, but appeared to make progress in coming to terms with his own wrongdoings.
After years, and with the dust having settled, Lino and Jacky made good on their promise to reunite and start over.
This time, the two were free from the baggage of their respective past marriage, and were ready to start a future together.
The emotional finale wrapped an eight-month run of “Halik” as the number one programme in its time slot, and an overall top-rater across the country, according to Kantar Media.
“Halik’s” ratings success, which translated to its first-ranked streaming audience on iWant and trending presence on social media, led to its extended run and the expansion of its story.
Starting Monday October 4, the time slot of The Heiress (Kadenang Ginto) would be occupied by the crime-drama series “Betrayal” it replaces a Mother’s Guilt (Hanggang Saan).
