Batang Quiapo had to make a smooth exit for Jaclyn Jose’s character and they successfully did this, based on the article in Balita. In the episode of the Kapamilya series on April 17, the story focused on Chief Dolores Espinas’s arrest because of the cases filed by Rigor, the character played by John Estrada.

The production decided to show Jaclyn’s old footage, especially the close-up shots. For the scene where she was already arrested and escorted by John and Allan Paule’s characters, a double was obviously used as the back and side profiles of the body were only shown.

The double almost had the same profile and skin color as Jaclyn. There was also a scene when the side view of her face was shown abruptly and it resembles the late veteran actress.
