When news came out that Maine Mendoza a.k.a. Yaya Dub was going to perform at Broadway Centrum last Saturday, the whole nation intently stood by if that evenful day will be the "tamang panahon" for her and on-screen love team partner Alden Richards to finally meet.
After competing against each other in the wildcard round of the Eat Bulaga segment "Bulaga Pa More," Yaya Dub and Alden, despite making a promise to Lola Nidora not to see each other, weren't able to restrain themselves, to the sheer delight of many.
The First Time. #priceless#ALDUBBattleForACausePosted by Eat Bulaga on Saturday, September 5, 2015
And just like the protagonists, everyone tuned in—including the show's hosts and the jam-packed studio—and they weren't able to contain their emotions when #AlDub finally came face to face.
Diehard fans of all ages and sizes more or less had the same outburst reaction:

For added comic relief, the piece of plywood responsible for preventing Yaya Dub and Alden from coming into contact has already issued its official statement.
Although it might be too late...

Just a straight-up reminder not to mess with an impassioned #AlDub Nation.
