Synopsis Pangako Sa 'Yo revolves around the story of a lovely housemaid, Yna, who falls in love with her senorito, Angelo. Their love story is destined to repeat history.
Years before, Yna's mother, Amor was also a maid in the Buenavista household, wherein Angelo's father, Eduardo was Doña Benita's favored son. When their love affair was discovered, Doña Benita drove Amor away from the Hacienda. Rejected and oppressed, Amor left the province of Puntaverde but vowed to take revenge. Unknown to Eduardo, Amor was already carrying his child, Yna. Eduardo then married the powerful and influential, Claudia.
Amor left two-year old Yna with her mother, Chayong and married a foreigner who brought her to the United States.
But tragedy befell on Chayong and young Yna. Chayong died and Yna was adopted by Tata Isko and was whole-heartedly accepted by the family, natives of Puntaverde.
Yna grew up not knowing her past, until fate led her to Hacienda Buenavista and there, she met Angelo.
Thus, a new cycle of love and passion begins with mysteries and secrets about to unfold.
In-Depth Plot The story starts with the love story of Amor (Eula Valdes) and Eduardo Buenavista (Tonton Gutierrez). Eduardo's mother, Benita, opposes the relationship since Amor was just a maid and also because she wanted Eduardo to marry Claudia (Jean Garcia) for political reasons. Eduardo's brother, Diego (Jestoni Alarcon), who has a crush on Amor, was asked by Benita to separate them. Eduardo, on seeing Diego trying to rape Amor, mistook it as them having a relationship, and is heartbroken and decides to marry Claudia. Amor, now pregnant, is forced to leave the Buenavista Hacienda and went back to her mother at a trash dump site. She vows to have her revenge on the Buenavista family when she finds out that Eduardo has married Claudia.
After giving birth to a girl named Maria Amor, Amor and her friend Lourdes survived by working in clubs. Amor caught the eye of a rich American who brings her to the US. She leaves her child and mother at the dump and sends money to them from time to time.
The American was abusive to Amor. When a landslide hit the dump site, making Amor think that her mother and daughter had died, he still did not allow her to go back to the Philippines. She got her revenge on him by not getting the medical help he needed when he suffered a stroke. He died and she inherits all his money.
Eduardo and Claudia had two children: Angelo and Lia. Eduardo is the current Governor of Puente Verde while Claudia has become the ever elusive Gambling Queen. Angelo is a rebel who dislikes his father while Lia is the sweet, church-attending teen whose feelings everyone wants to protect.
Amor's daughter, however, survives the landslide and is adopted by a couple, Isko and Belen Macaspac. They already had a son named Caloy, who hated Yna. The couple found drawings Eduardo made for Amor, signed "Ynamorata" near the abandoned child, so they decided to call the little girl they found Ynamorata. Isko and Belen soon had another child, Flerida.
Benita Buenavista regretted forcing Eduardo to marry Claudia as her daughter-in-law turned out to be a bitch. She tried to explain on her deathbed that she was the one who broke his relationship with Amor but died before explaining. She then haunted the dreams of the now grown up Yna to make up for her sins.
By accident, Yna and Eduardo meet and Yna dreams Benita showing her that her past lies in the Buenavista family. Intrigued, she gets a job working as a maid for the family in hopes of finding out about her past.
Yna and Angelo fall in love, much to the chagrin of Claudia, and due to the fact she looks down on maids, makes Yna's life a living hell.
Amor, coming back from the US as Amor Powers, has made a name for herself in the business world, all the while planning her revenge on the Buenavista family, whom she blamed for the sufferings she endured before as well as the assumed death of her child. One of the most awaited parts is the revelation to Amor that Yna is in fact her long lost daughter. The dilemma is that, after finding out that Yna's true father is Eduardo, Angelo and Yna are therefore siblings. It is later revealed that the true father of Angelo is actually Diego, not Eduardo. The conclusion is that everyone is reunited with their true loves- Yna marries Angelo, Claudia marries Simon Barcial, and Amor and Eduardo are together.

Comments of the Stars to the serie's Farewell http://web.archive.org/web/20040207085358/www.abs-cbn.com/pangako_sayo/int-farewell.shtml At last, the chains will now all be broken as Pangako Sa'Yo heads off to its final episode. The keys to the mysteries the story possesses will now vanquish the tightness that's been binding us all. But this does not end there, for our favorite bunch of artists gather around and share their thoughts on the things they are going to miss, on how fulfilling was this whole experience for them, on the lessons they've learned, on the friendships they've built, and on how PSY make their and our dreams come true.
AMOR POWERS / EULA VALDEZ:
"Since high school, 'pag may nagpapa-authograph, ang nilalagay ko always, "love power". So parang meant to be. This is more than what I expected. Hindi ako makakahanap ng words to best describe the feeling, basta lahat ng positive na emotion."
"I will miss of course the cast and crew, since we're together for almost two years, but the feeling is like we've been together for ten years. We are like a family here. I even asked for their addresses already so when I'm starting to miss them, I can visit them."
"PSY for me is friendship. It is also like a school since we've learned a lot here, the basics that we can learn in school, can also be taught here. PSY is honesty. As for me, this is the BEST thing that ever happened in my career. After PSY, sabi nila meron. But I don't expect kasi ayoko ma-disappoint although may naka-ready akong gagawin 'pag walang dumating."
EDUARDO / TONTON GUTIERREZ:
"I'm going to miss a lot. First is the friendship that the whole cast have and the staff and the crew and the directors, everybody. And also the tapings like three times a week."
"This whole experience was very fulfilling. I met a lot of friends, and worked with new directors. My acting became wider. I am very fulfilled about the whole thing. PSY is really the BEST!"
YNA / KRISTINE HERMOSA:
"I will miss the samahan, ang bonding ng lahat ng mga artista, lahat ng staff, lahat ng directors, and 'yung pagiging pamilya namin dito. Naiintindihan ka nila kahit anong iarte mo, 'yung mga moods mo ngayon. Di ko alam kung makakasama ko ulit sila, the same staff and crew."
"Dito, mas nahasa akong umarte, pahalagahan ang trabaho ko at mahalin."
ANGELO / JERICHO ROSALES:
"Mami-miss ko 'yung call time. 'Yung ganito, lahat ng kulitan, kwentuhan, kantsawan, and bonding as a group nung family namin, ako, si Eduardo, si Lia, si Mama; kami nina Tin-tin, Amor. Professionally, 'yung story itself. Ma-mimiss ko yung wala na akong call time muna, wala kang ginagawa, walang pinaghahandaang costume requirements. "I learned to love my work, respect for others, value of viewership, and of course the people who are watching us."
DIEGO / JESTONI ALARCON:
"I will miss the closeness of the group, para kaming magkakapatid. Masarap gumawa ng soap 'pag lahat magkakasundo, wlaang awayan, walang tampuhan. Masaya sa tapings kahit pagod."
"Actually, this is my second time in doing soap operas. This is my training ground for acting. You also get to maintain your popularity sa mga tao, your visibility, and 'yung active ka pa rin. At the same time, napapakita mo 'yung acting mo sa mga tao, mostly drama. Kasi I'm doing action films then drama sa TV, so I can show my flexibility to the people."
"PSY is history. No.1 ang PSY sa lahat ng soaps. Never will the people forget PSY."
BETTY MAE/ EVANGELINE PASCUAL:
"I will miss my Miss Powers. The dressing up of Betty Mae, the words of wisdom of Betty Mae, the walang tigil na payo kay Mam Amor. And of course, the camaraderie, the love that we have established, deep rooted love at that. The beautiful directors who have been patient to each and everyone. The trials, the tears, the mistakes, the laughters, the faux pas, mga kapalpakan sa set, 'yung mga pagtitimping hindi masabi dahil sa sobrang pagmamahalan."
"I can never quantify the experience, the training, the reminders as Betty Mae. She has always reminded me of the woman in me, to take care of myself, to dress up, to look beautiful, to be always control in any trials, to be focused and grounded and to be able to know the right from wrong."
NANAY BELEN/ EVA DARREN:
"Kasi para kaming isang pamilya na nagmamahalan. Parang silang sumusunod sa nanay nila, tuwang-tuwa ako. Napakaganda ng samahan sa mga crew, make-up artists, directors namin, lahat sila, wala akong masasabi. Sa totoo lang, walang etching."
FLERIDA/ HAZEL ANN GONZALES:
"I will miss the staff. They can teach you some lessons. Pangako Sa'Yo is sobrang fulfilling!"
COOKIE/ REY KILAY:
"Mamimiss ko yung drama scenes ko, kasi komedyante talaga ako. Hindi talaga ako dramatic actor. Kasi 'pag nagsho-show ako sa bars, puro patawa. Pero dito, never ako nagpatawa. Super serious ang role ko dito. Umiiyak palage. And of course, I will also miss the cast."
"Undescribable! Ang laki talaga ng naitulong sa career ko, exposure. Ang sarap ng feeling na makilala sa buong mundo as Cookie. This is really a dream come true for me."
ERROL / ONEMIG BONDOC:
"I will miss the bonding, kasi almost everyday kami nagkakasama, magkakatrabaho. But nothing is really permanent dito sa showbiz."
"I learned the value of discipline kasi all the actors here arrive on time so I also have to be on time."
LOURDES / AMY AUSTRIA:
"I'll miss the group, mga totoong tao. We don't work for the sake of money but for the love we have for one another. Parang family! Saya!"
"This is really a history to Philippine TV. This is the only soap that not only captured classes C and D but A and B as well. It's an honor na makasama ang lahat ng tao dito."
FATIMA / SUZETTE RANILLO:
"I will miss the camaraderie between actors and staff. This is my family outside my real family. Lahat nagtratrabaho kahit pagod na. I learned to be more patient working late until the wee hours of the morning and to be more forgiving for the shortcomings of others."
LOURDES / AMY AUSTRIA:
"I'll miss the group, mga totoong tao. We don't work for the sake of money but for the love we have for one another. Parang family! Saya!"
JULIETA / NIKKA VALENCIA:
"I learned to adjust and to be open-minded. Kasi kung sarado kang artista, and iniisip mo lang ang sarili mo, eh hindi magiging maganda 'yung kalalabasan nyo. Nagpapasalamat ako kay Direk Rory for giving me the role."
DEBRA / GIDGET REYES:
"The best word to describe this would be touching; that's in front and behind the camera. Our camaraderie on and off the camera."
"I can't even express. Very fulfilling because you're working with good people, not just great artists but good people. I'm really grateful for having this opportunity. I am really gonna miss the people. I'm just thinking about it, nakakaiyak. And of course, the friendships that we've built."
