Shuk: Was that actually news?
JoAnne: Come on. The sunglasses are funny.
Is it news to us that we two might, in fact, not have the same sense of humor?!
Was that actually news either?
Very close. She was totally freaked out about the guy, and he did give out convincing menace... but what the friend said was she thought maybe Ri Ta had come in and then gone out again, because earlier she felt like someone else was in the apartment. Which means Elevator Vamp was there, watching. Was he waiting for Ri Ta and had to leave because she wouldn't be alone? It doesn't seem like discretion is much part of their particular valor, but who knows.
Was he bad? He was wearing black on grey, not the usual all black.
Security is tracking every document that gets accessed, and notifying him about it. And no, he did not.
I wondered about using the hospital computers previously; I just figured the good guys didn't care if the bad guys knew. Stupid, I know, but then so is the whole show.
Hello?! Dead mentor? What part of "megalomaniac" contains the word "good"? Wait, though, I guess our Pampire doesn't know about the squashed throat thing.
Oh yeah, they do NOT like each other. Pale has not been properly respectful to Intern, who doesn't let that go on for long at all. Pale is genuinely frightened of Intern - is that because of WHO she is, though, or because of WHAT she is?
Or who pulls her leash.
I think he asks them outright if they're plotting against him, and of course the answer is no. But he does then go on to talk to them in that deceptively friendly way he has. You know how someone talks to you nicely but every word is a threat and you know it right from the start, or from at least half-way? He manages to speak nicely and make it seem genuine, and then BAM, it's a sharp left at the Gates of Hell and at the end you're dead and no idea how you got that way.
He did basically let them know that he has copies of everything they have at the hospital. But I have to throw the BS flag on this play. Sidekick is a computer genius with a pervy but intelligent robot, who has been ferreting out information for years, and yet nobody thinks of the complete lack of privacy on the hospital computers until now? When you log on nowadays, a disclaimer pops up warning you that anything and everything can be monitored. Just more poor writing to make the characters unbelievable.
I really thought Lady Admin was going to have more balls... but then I guess there's still time. And at this point, she doesn't know Intern is a low down lying cheating dirty scumbag traitor son of a bitch, to be fair.
Maybe it will turn out that the cure to the virus is regular injections of innocence. (If it is, I will throw up. Or possibly make very dirty jokes about it.)
Or both. The nun will hopefully sacrifice herself to destroy the Dad Monster. I don't think she'd take the virus as a way out of her pain.
I have to remember this part...it's something about her reporting results of various tests but I think she's doing it on UNinfected blood, and in order to be truly useful, it needs to be done on infected blood. Or it could be vice versa, but I think not, since his blood is clearly infected and he was telling her she needed it.
She describes the previous blood as "processed infected" which means it's not fresh from the source. She thinks the results would be more accurate with the good stuff, along with (of course) a greater chance to spread the infection. Maybe she wants to be like Evil Intern and Pamp-slam her against the wall.
Well, she is pretty. If he could just put her on permanent mute.
The less said, the better.
Jae-wook goes to head-butt with Administrator once more, in his usual charming way. She lies that she is not tampering with his research - but he knows better. In comes her nurse-spy. Busted. A busted liar is a Bliar, right? Administrator has no more assets. No more.
Until she reveals that she is the Vampire Queen and EATS HIM. Mwaaaaaaa-ha-ha-ha-ha
Evil will always triumph over good. Because Good is Dumb.
Either your Korean is better than you let on, or you really ARE Kakashi Holmes.
They describe the effects of the VBT-01 virus on children; and Pita's bestie realizes that Pampire fits the M.O. It won't be long until she's in the know.
She lingers after the others 'because he wants to drive her home, right?' 'No.' 'Too bad, that's what you're going to do.' Not that he puts up much of a fight. He totally digs her. She's his Forest Girl.
Once I'm in slippers, there is no way I'm leaving my home, no matter how much I like the other person. They can stay and sleep on the couch if that means I don't have to drive them home.
She was running away with infected blood so she could turn herself into a vampire. Apparently, the agreement was that she would do the research and in return, he would turn her into one of them. She feels she's done her best and he disagrees with that - but more importantly, she has now demonstrated that her own plans take precedence over his, and with her loyalty to him in question, she must be destroyed. So yep, he kills her. He wouldn't reward her with the very thing she wanted from him, that would be silly. Then again, this drama...
Nice crunchy neck snap.
Nice? They look like the glasses that that little costume maker wears in The Incredibles.
Stupid show. Stupid glasses. No, I don't find them amusing.
He's practically a Real Boy now.
She came in with the monthly schedule and he asked her what it was like, taking care of her mother - did she have regrets, would she have prolonged things if she could?
There was a tiny spark of empathy, squashed by VampDoctrination and pure evilness.
Actually, he offers to cure the nun with one drop of his blood, if Ri Ta wants that. Ri Ta declines at first, I think. But off to the side he and Adorable Friend are looking for something besides Atisan that he can take to control the blood shakes/vamping out that happens when he's around the operating room.
Maybe she can just squeeze his butt the entire surgery. He calmed down when she held his hand before, but he needs both of them for the procedure. I'm sure writer-nim can Google-Fu some obscure reference in a medical for butt-squeezing-as-therapy.
Oh, he must be the replacement for Pale.
Scruff says there's no way Ji Sang is a vampire and if he is, then he, Scruff, will run around the hospital in his underpants. Yes, that is so going to happen. Let's check out those legs!
Hee hee hee. I'd buy that for a dollar.
Everyone knows she's dying and to his credit, Jae Wook looks truly pained by the prospect. He really DOES want to save people. Such a mixed up man.
Still scary as fuck.
This was an interesting conversation. She accuses him of not being sincere in his offer, but he really was. He feels like if this is something he CAN do for the nun, then he SHOULD do it, and he's willing to do even that much to help her. But Ri Ta says just knowing he feels that way is enough, and that he shouldn't go that far, ever. So they agree that he will operate, and he reassures her that he can manage his symptoms around the blood.
I don't recognize him. Boss Nurse is suspicious, but the younger ones think he's cute.
I want to cut his bangs; they annoy me. Not as much as the entire drama, but still. So the new term for "Death By Evil Vamp Doc" is "Transferred To America". Good to know.
Nope, Friend found a new drug - it's been banned for severe side effects, but he's managed to get some on order and it will be there tomorrow. Not enough time to test it before surgery, so that's a risk - and oh, by the way, Ri Ta found it for him, Adorable Friend confesses. The nun reassures the men that if it's her time, it's her time, no messing with God. Both seem affected by her composure.
She is the voice of reason in this madness. It's not going to stop this trainwreck, though. Oh well, time for the operating theater. Let's do this people! Slice that fois gras! Grab that butt!
He was starting to vamp out a bit, I think, and the touch of her hand calmed him. During the operation, he does argue that they can't just close her up - they're surgeons! But Ri Ta makes an impassioned speech about this being the best that they can do for her - to continue would make her last days worse. She's going to die, so why not let her last hours be peaceful? Her words seem to affect Uncle and Jae Wook as well. Uncle tells Ji Sang he agrees - stop the surgery. And he thanks him for going so far for them. Then out in the hall, Ri Ta thanks him too, for allowing her to be able to say goodbye to her kindof mother without any regrets at all. She feels certain that Sister Sylvia would approve and be grateful as well. Clearly, the eavesdropping Intern is having a change of heart about all of this - but so far, they're making it look like Jae Wook is, too.
I don't think Intern really is changing. I think she wants Pampire to be her very own sexchair recipient.
Ohhh, that look wasn't dawning awareness of the evil of her ways... it was realization that Rita knows! Damn it. That can't be good.
I hope Intern stays bad. VERY bad. I like her that way. But Rita isn't the next target. It's my favorite character, Scruff! Pretty Pamp Boss takes him by the throat!!!! Nooooooooooo...
I hope he makes it out alive. You know, not a vampire, or completely dead.
Looks like the only doctor not made of cardboard is about to be Transferred To America.
'I've been here several times, why didn't you notice?' Ummm, creepy! And then, 'Oh, *I* noticed.' Ji Sang to the rescue. Cue terribly bad fighting with Ri Ta just hanging around too close and getting in the way. And then... Ji Sang recognizes the bad guy! Oh it is ON now.
I think his snarl needs a little work. Maybe he's mad because the other vamp has a better hairstyle.. But other than thank, it was interesting enough for me to watch the scene in its entirety, which might be a first...no! The ugly autopsy scene [shudders]. So this is the second.
CommentsHow is it interesting to slooooooowly, veeeeeeery sloooooooooowly find out bits and tiny pieces about this vampire virus? I don't get that. Is it supposed to be thrilling? Engaging? Whatever, I need to leave now, bai!
Did we find out anything new about the virus? (We didn't??! DAMN. I thought those loooooooong conversations were about that) This episode was mostly about saving people or not saving them, and when is enough enough and when is it too much? I approve that Ri Ta understands it's more important to keep the virus away from the world than it is to save her dear friend, and I've been enjoying watching Ji Sang struggle with the question of whether it would be a good or a bad thing to eradicate disease and death. We know the answer of course, because there's Jae Wook - he started with the idea to save people and yet he's become a murderous monster in pursuit of that goal. It doesn't mean everyone would do the same, but you know the saying - absolute power corrupts absolutely. I still like seeing people work through the problem, all the same.
There are two characters I like: Jae-wook and Intern Girl. And then, I dig Scruff and Cute Friend, but only because of their looks.
Got nothing to add here. Maybe next time? Short of the old "Do we / don't we" there was nothing in this episode that didn't feel like filler. But at least there wasn't anything to really piss me off, either.
