Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) and Alden Richards aren't the only driving forces behind Eat Bulaga's kalyeserye, #Kiligpamore.

For one, comedian Wally Bayola's character, Lola Nidora, has equal significance to the whole plot (and the show's appeal) as the transcendent love team, #AlDub.

From just being a "killjoy" of a grandma hindering the much-awaited meeting between the ill-fated on-screen lovers, to being a treasure trove of lessons on love, Lola Ni Dora is actually the fuel that ignites this unprecedented love story. We're among those wondering how the writers will be able to sustain this level of clamor after Alden and Yaya Dub eventually come face to face...

The enigmatic character may have gained a ton of haters, but there are still many who appreciate her grandmotherly gestures, especially her understandably overprotective persona.

While fans have been cooking up scenarios on how #AlDub's "Tamang Panahon" would transpire, others have been taking their sweet time building up Lola Nidora's role. Take for instance the Facebook page Don Simoun Ibarra, which unveiled a batch of throwback photos that seemed to have hinted on the old lady's backstory:

In an interview with Inquirer.net, the page owner, who is a self-professed #AlDub fan, said he was inspired by #Kiligpamore's "hidden message." He also believes that Lola Nidora's lessons on love are morals "that the youth of today should always keep in mind."

Another set of photos, this time from an unofficial Facebook page of Lola Nidora, meanwhile, somewhat reveals the anti-hero's romantic history with, surprisingly, master mime Charlie Chaplin.

Netizens may have been showing their love to the misunderstood matriarch, but in the end, it's still Yaya Dub's heartfelt indebtedness—shown through this new tribute Dubsmash vid—that truly matters.
