The Puregold Channel’s digital series “Ang Babae sa Likod ng Face Mask” has taken the online world by storm. The funny and heartwarming love story of Malta and Sieg, played by Herlene Budol and Joseph Marco, respectively, has created a massive fan base among Filipino rom-com fans all over the world.
Its most recent episode turned into a cliffhanger as Malta bailed on their first face-to-face date, leaving Sieg frustrated and heartbroken. Will Sieg ever forgive Malta for her alibis and lies?
With their story taking a provocative turn, the show’s ever-growing fanbase is speculating about what’s to come next. Here are just five of our favorite theories . . .
Sieg goes back to his ‘ex’
Episode 6 ends with Sieg extremely upset about being ghosted by Malta—and turning to drink that night. Fans now wonder: could Malta’s latest caper drive an inebriated Sieg back into the arms of his ex?
It’s a prank!
This one’s a little out there but its what makes fan theories . . . uhm, fun! And one of the funniest is Madam Baby’s attempts to be a viral Tiktok star. She’s done a number of dance crazes—and quite a slew of pranks—to have a shot at Tiktok and YouTube fame.
Is Madam Baby simply using Malta and Sieg’s budding romance to rev up fans’ interest in her life? Perhaps she’s the puppet master pulling all the strings. After all, wasn’t it Madam Baby who sweet-talked Malta into confessing her feelings for Sieg in Episode 5?
The last resort: cosmetic surgery
If feelings of insecurity are standing between Malta and her happiness, could turning to plastic surgery solve her problem? The big question would then be: but can Malta afford it? With a sudden cash windfall perhaps? Or an enamored and wealthy Sieg paying for it?
Sieg x Trina Forever?
We all know that Trina has the hots for Sieg, who could be feeling vulnerable is at the moment. She could grab Sieg for herself, couldn’t she? With Trina using all the tricks she knows, it could even lead to wedding bells! Well, stranger things have happened.
Sieg forgives Malta once and for all
We’re saving the last for the ending that romcom fans clamor for—the Happily Ever After. As crazy love stories go, Sieg can see past Malta’s antics and understand where she’s coming from. Love can finally bloom and grow—unrestrained.
These are all just theories, though. What’s yours?
To see how their love story unravels, watch for the forthcoming episodes of “Ang Babae sa Likod ng Face Mask,” showing on Saturdays, at 7 PM, on the official YouTube Puregold Channel.
