In a promotional post for the episode on their official Facebook account, it included a statement from Samra herself, it said:
Nagtatanong kasi ako noon sa group chat habang naglalaro ng Toram Online dahil may gusto akong item na mabuo para sa character ko. Walang pumansin sa akin hanggang sa nag-message na si Triston at tunulungan ako. Sweet at gentleman siya kapag china-chat niya ako. Sabi pa niya sa akin na pinoprotektahan niya ako sa game kahit hindi ako online. Hanggang sa nagkapalagayan na kami ng loob at araw-araw ng nagkaka-chat.
In the video posted, you would see Triston hugging Samra, his bride. The caption wrote:
Ito na yung nag viral, kinasal na. Sa games lang sila nagkakilala at yung lalaki babalik na sa kanila at maiiwan muna si girl. Wow ang sweet ni boy kay girl. Mashaalla wala talaga impossible pag si Allah na ang gumawa ng tadhana.

His curiosity grew day after day until he finally decided to initiate contact with Samra. Months passed and they friendly chitchat paved way to a love that literally crossed the seas.
Triston eventually made his way to the Philippines after Samra finished her job as a domestic helper and finally proposed to her. The online gamer loved Samra so much that he even converted his religion to Islam for her. He even followed the custom tradition of the dowry of the Muslims. Days after they finally met, Triston tied the knot with Samra in a traditional Muslim ceremony which they later followed with a modern wedding.
For Samra and Triston love is surely beyond physical presence. For them, it is not important where and how they met. What is important is their emotional investment and the relationship they were able to build together.
