It does seem like a really long time between episodes, for some reason. Maybe I should watch it later in the week.
Are you telling me to hurry up or something? *narrow eyes of suspicion*
Not at all! I'm saying I shouldn't watch it until later in the week so that it's more fresh in my mind.
Since I'm bringing up the rear, I'm at your tender mercies.
If you're talking about the fight in the parking garage (yes, that), it's because Jae Wook took Cancer Dad into the special ward without talking to Ji Sang first. But Jae Wook has totally reasonable explanation for his thinking.
Clearly Vampire Doc thinks that with a little explanation and a little flair for the dramatic, our boy will fall in line.
The creepy thing is that while he is talking about his vision, I totally buy into his sad, weary expression and his words about how it's all for the people, the poor suffering people. Once he stops talking, I remember that he likes to kill people who disagree with him.
He's essentially using a version of infecting patients with a 'dead' virus to create an immune response without the patients becoming infected. He's still craze-balls, and Pampire tells him so. So now he is craze-balls with a high level of pisstivity.
Adorable Friend is adorable, yes. She has some medical curiosity about some of the symptoms and such, I think. Awww, she wants to cure him. Probably so she can jump his bones.
To jump his bones, I guess she expects medical ethics to fly out the window. A patient expects confidentiality, and she shouldn't try to get Pampire's infection notes by pulling her abysmal ability to flirt at Sidekick.
I miss our wonderful dogs, sigh.
Never watched it. But one dead little girl does not equal the number of lives he's detroyed on his road to perdition. No matter how cute she is.
See, Friend does tell Rita quite a lot about Pamps, but then, Ji-sang gets home. She scolds him for just running off and then leaves after doing a tiny little hissy-pissy fitty fit. I know some people find them cute together, so I will not bitch about it too much.
I just think she overplays this stuff. They're cute together but she detracts from it.
This drama, like a vampire, will go on forever.
And cause massive amounts of bleeding, even if it's only from the eyeballs. And you know he's gonna be the first patient to convert from dead to live virus. He'll kill everyone but the ones that most need killing.
You could be right about this... apparently I can't remember things for more than a day.
Pampire has a tiny bit of a tiny crisis of faith, but Sidekick snaps him out of it with a roundhouse kick of logic.
Ji Sang wanted to stay looking good in front of Ri Ta and Adorable Friend told her all kinds of embarrassing things.
Outed by Puurvy.
I don't think anyone at this hospital puts in a full day except the patients.
That's because cardboard doctors don't have working opposable thumbs.
Rita takes on pale (not vamp?) Doc. She's like: give me all your research notes, I want to do a peer review. The other goes: no? It's not ready for publication. And how are you qualified to look at my genius research, you snotty party girl? But when Rita has left, she looks worried. Oh, has she fabricated data?
Yep, I need to watch this later in the week.
(or maybe you ... slept through it again? No?)
[shrug] The seeds of destruction were sown long ago. Like in December 2014, when the production contract was finalized on piece of ssss.....tuff.
except for the developing titinitus and vampy symptoms). He talks a bit to Liar Game Doc about diapers and cars and then runs into Scruff, who greets him enthusiastically. Ah, they went out together off-screen! That's cheeky, drama. We would have wanted to see this!
Secret Nurse doesn't want to take the risk of smuggling blood out of the ward.
She's probably afraid of tall rooftops and out-of-control lorries.
Other Girl is definitely challenged. Is she there to remind Liver Girl that it's possible to be happy in the face of adversity? Do you think that might resonate more if they used someone who was aware of that adversity? Maybe she is. Hard to tell.
I'm sure it matters in some alternate universe.
See that's what I'm saying. Jae Wook doesn't really want them to die. He wants to heal them. But when it becomes clear that they are a liability, he cuts his losses. He really believes he's on a mission for good, though.
This might be a good time for some holy water and a decapitation. And not just for the dead guy.
I think you were right about that last bit. They do want the body.
What if they die with pants on? (then they take them of before putting them in the morgue!!!)
He finds the Homeless Dude, examines the body (is he a coroner, too?) and then takes some blood from him. Wait a second ... how long until blood clots in a dead man's body?
Very conveniently, longer than that. In the story, anyway. His official career is Baby Genius Infectious Disease Doctor.
OMG with the body exam. I have disposable gown kits packaged to the size of my IPhone that include gloves, impervious apron, foot booties and head covering. The body is clearly externally contaminated (look at Corpse's ugly black hands), and they already know he was infected with some version of Vampirus. FANSERVICE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THIS. And!!!!! After fondling the body and collecting fluids with his unprotected appendages, HE WIPES HIS GRUBBY DEAD-BODY-SKIN-ENCRUSTED HAND ON HIS OWN NECK. Just writing this makes me feel like I need a bleach bath and a couple shots of gamma globulin. *Ri7u6r975r497#^%$(&^DFf.....
She was only for Scruff in your version of the story.
Lady Admin does encourage Intern Girl to pay attention to what's going on, especially the shady stuff. Intern Girl doesn't think she can do it.
Just invest in electric blanket with dual controls, it will be fine.
He does find it cute, and he indulges it. He's sort of Mischievous Kiss-y about their relationship.
[Drinking a large glass of aloe juice and alcohol] - An awkward and useless conversation at best.
In reality (if I can even use that word in relation to anything on this show), Corpse was infected with a non-SK variety of malaria just to kill him. I guess driving a truck through the ward would be strange. And redundant. Again.
It's Mentor Dad's journal.
And we find out that official cause of death is an accidental fire in the lab. Which looks better on the death certificate than "Throat crushed by a heavily veined individual with sharp pointy nails and a fetish for godhood." That has too many characters to fit the field anyway.
I vaguely remember this scene, but I think it was either them talking really nicely about ruining each other, or he at least wasn't as fooled as he let her think he was.
Yep, she decided to help the good guys snoop. She really admires Ji Sang!
Could be... maybe they're vampires, too?
[Driving my own Truck of Doom through the plot hole] Let's face it, nurses know that you need to crimp the IV line when changing bags to avoid back flow out of the catheter. So she could have used a piece of gauze and taken about a second to grab some, versus all the time doing a syringe draw. Or dipped a Q-tip and slid it inside a pen blank. Better than the nothing they have now. Or, really, she could have collected some under her fingernails. Proper BSI protocols were never part of Writer-nim's notes anyway.
I think it ends with her not getting punished because she was doing what she was told and she IS just an intern, and the others get off with a warning not to keep screwing around.
I think this is a really bad time for the "One For All and All For One". Better for one to take the heat and leave the rest to continue the fight against the Big Bad Sexchair Owner.
Sipping wine in his sexchair is Jae-wook. At home. Standing in front of him ... Intern Girl. Dressed in black. And smirking. Well done, my prodigy, says Jae-wook. You fooled them right. And we see that she was his creature all along - it was her that exchanged Ji-sang's chewing gum back then, it was her that fired the drug into his neck. It was her that jumped off that roof so many years ago and smashed her head into pieces ... but she was saved. Saved by Jae-wook's blood. Now forever his and he is hers.
Jump off a roof, lie there for a while bleeding out with your head smashed flat like a pumpkin, but apparently still alive when everyone stops crying and runs downstairs to check on you? Alive and talking with your head lightly bandaged and your face a bit scraped, so that the nice doctor can feed you blood? Sigh.
No. Freaking. Way. She wouldn't have survived long enough for any voodoo he might do. Clearly My Truck Of Doom isn't big enough; it's time to commandeer Fat Albert from the US Blue Angels Team. It might be big enough. Then again, how many more episodes is there?
CommentsWho was surprised?
I was. If I had been wondering who would be the logical plant it would have been her, but frankly, I wasn't wondering at all. I never think ahead on this one. I would have preferred the plant to be Ri Ta's friend or something.
I was surprised. I didn't think she was really good, but I didn't get she was Platform Diving Suicide Girl, mostly because, again, that was a non-survivable traumatic injury based on the CGI and Special Effects team's need to spread the blood spatter out all those meters. Poorly done, Show, which, come to think of it, shouldn't be a surprise.
I might have been surprised but I wasn't. I wonder why. I think we discussed the possibility of her being evil several times and in MY version of the story that was indeed a possibility. Like the nun that didn't appear in this episode, maybe because she's dead or something.
Oh, if she's dead then I definitely fell asleep. I do that a lot though, right now. At work, at home, in the bathroom, struggle against it in the car. I nap for hours on the weekend. In other words, don't blame the drama. It's me!
