** [[Doña Victorina found a new hobby other than wearing her artificial hair ringlets and pretending to speak in a fake Andalucian accent: driving their horse-drawn carriage around town. She also has taken to wearing a pince-nez due to deteriorating vision.

[[spoiler:
** Padre Damaso was reassigned in a remote parish church by his Father Provincial, which he did not take too well, and was discovered dead at his bed.
** Padre Salvi resigned his post as the parish priest of San Diego and became a chaplain at the Santa Clara Nunnery.
** Capitan Tiago, despondent over the decision of her only daughter to become a postulant (actually the loss of a potential heir to his business empire), sank into a deep depression and began to frequent an opium den in Binondo.
** Doña Victorina found a new hobby other than wearing her artificial hair ringlets and pretending to speak in a fake Andalucian accent: driving their horse-drawn carriage around town, which she had difficulty doing due to her deteriorating vision, necessitating her to regularly wear a pince-nez. Her husband remained as henpecked as ever, and the abuse from his wife even worsened as no patient ever solicited his medical "expertise" anymore resulting to their plummet to poverty. ** Linares, Maria Clara's suitor after Ibarra, died of dysentery and was interred at the Paco Cemetery.
** The Alferez was promoted to Lieutenant-Commander, and decided to return to Spain, leaving his mistress behind who was now taken to excessive drinking and smoking.
** And finally, Maria Clara professed her vows and entered the Santa Clara Abbey, where Padre Salvi regularly rapes her to sate his carnal desires. One evening in a stormy night, two civil guards saw her on the roof of the cloister, raging against the heavens, and thinking that she was a ghostly apparition, immediately reported the incident to the authorities. However, a government inquiry about her fate was duly stopped by the Abbess, citing the rules of the convent about outsiders, and nothing was ever heard of from Maria Clara ever again.]]

''Noli Me Tangere'' was wildly controversial and wildly game-changing at the time of its release; it was actually banned in several parts of the country due to its portrayal of priests as [[DirtyOldMan dirty old men]], the church as [[CorruptChurch corrupt]], and the government [[BananaRepublic as just as corrupt]], abusive, and indifferent. Nevertheless, the book managed to unify the Filipino consciousness and indirectly spark the Katipunan revolution, as several of its head honchos were inspired by the thoughts and messages in it. Meanwhile, Rizal himself was imprisoned for his writings containing subversive content, and was later executed at the age of thirty-five. Afterwards, the Rizal Law made studying this novel mandatory for all Philippine schools as part of their study on Filipino literature.
