JoAnne: Well I had no idea what was coming. Although I do already know now that a lot of people die in the NEXT episode and that the ending sucks, but after this episode I really don't care. And since I watched this episode before writing my comments for 16,17, or 18, I think my no longer caringness showed there. Guess what? I don't care about that either. This is now a Stew Cap. I am stewing.
Shuk: Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?
He's been a good, if virginal, boyfriend. That that BITCH Lady Admin dares to try to push past Ji Sang like that just enraged me. Okay, there are some things I still care about.
Man, she's even ineffectual in maintaining her place in the family unit. Pfui.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA THE NECK I split my lip a little from laughing so hard, you're terrible and I love you so much right now.
Seems like an awfully cavernous space for a hospital chapel, which tend to be small and intimate. Then again, given the average life expectancy of a Taemin Hospital patient, perhaps it is best that they used additional funds for a fancier Bon Voyage room.
They're just supposed to have SEX in times of grief, not DATE. They talk about how the tree that was raised on water was really raised on blood, and how sometimes a tree needs blood, and all kinds of stupid pseudo-deep shit. He's backing her for boss of the hospital, they've been planning it since last week or something. I really did split my lip, it hurts.
Nope, different colored lipstain, NOT soulmates, so no chance of sexchair dalliance. Even if he wishes his lips were that shade of red.
They're both in black now. They want us to think it's because of mourning, but I don't know...
There was absolutely nothing new in that conversation. None.
Poor girl...she really is bewildered by Uncle's reason for coming clean. He should have kept the secret and let her think she was loved by someone, at least. Since he killed himself, is she supposed to forgive him? Ji Sang tells her Uncle confessed to make himself feel better, but that he probably treated her a little bit better, tried loving her a little bit more, out of the guilt he felt about her parents. Oh! I forgot! (I didn't. He's an ass.)When she met up with him again after he confessed and before he killed himself, she asked him what would have happened to her if she had been with her parents at that moment. He refused to give a direct answer, which means he would have had her killed as well. I think confessing that is what led him to suicide. Anyway, Ji Sang finishes up by saying she doesn't have to do anything she doesn't want to do, and that certainly the time for forgiveness is still a ways off. He's very reassuring to her, I'll give him that.
He is good at being the standing silent [read: non-emotion face] type. I had forgotten that one of the drugs in his Death Cocktail was an illegal truth serum.
Jae-wook questions Intern Girl's loyalty: why is that annoying snotty woman still alive?! Intern Girl has come up with a good excuse: Rita knows how to do a very rare cross-eyed magic and she needs to learn that before disposing of her!
I almost said they had to wait until she was ovulating, but no, that's Hannah from Orphan Black.
Rita puts the recorder she got from her uncle's safe in front of Lady Admin. She knows everything and she knows she knows. She knows she knows she knows. Ultimately, that's all that counts, that they know they know. Knowing is good. No need for tears, really.
Lady Admin, you horrible person. You arranged to have two people killed, but why? Because someone gave you a tree once?
It is a mystree that she would use a lack of chemistree as a means for sophistree.
Oh that's not all. She has twenty-four hours to turn herself into the police, too.
And lighten the lip color, since Orange Is The New Black.
The vampires are hungry. They eye the juicy nurse, who quickly runs out. Ji-sang and Scruff are watching ... it's too bad their anti-drug didn't work at all. But let's stroll through the corridors a bit! The hospital has long since stopped doing any kind of surgery, it's too much of a hassle. Scruff suggests they just burn everything to the ground. Ji-sang agrees. He just wants to go on an extended holiday.
Off to Kochenia! But seriously, why do those nurses come to work with those freaks anyway?
If it were me, there would be a Shuk-shaped hole in the hospital wall leading outside.
Pretty, but dim.
Also, it looks like fruit punch.
Ri Ta called her by name, complimented her, and said that she hoped some day to have her ability to live with so much compassion and grace. I think that would conflict anybody.
Can we move on to something more exciting? Like another corridor walk?
Intern Girl (shall we call her Ga Yeon now? She sort of deserves it.) tells him that she thinks it would be really good if he stuck verrrrry very close by Ri Ta, you know, because she's so sad, not because her life is in danger or anything like that. So Ri Ta and Ji Sang are headed back to the virginal nest, and then Ji Sang gets called to do an emergency surgery on some extremely sick kidney patient who's never been mentioned before.
I guess it's time to dust off the barely-used surgical theater set. Are they gonna unfold the cardboard docs too?
He's supposed to go in with her to make sure she does it, but she convinces him to wait outside.
Wicked busted. He even knows she texted Ri Ta and said to get out, immediately.
Ruh Ro, Shaggy.
Actually, she says she'll never leave him - but she just can't do his bidding this time, it just seems wrong. He rages about disloyalty while she insists that she IS loyal to him, it's just that he seems... a bit overwrought lately.
Just more proof that he is really losing his grasp of whatever his reality used to be.
Boss says the same thing - he will follow Jae Wook to the end, but Jae Wook cannot kill Ga Yeon. He's not right, these days. They love him and are very grateful that he saved them, but he's not right.
Next reality show on Fox: "One Bite Too Many: Vampire Intervention". I wonder if Pamp Oppa is sweet on her. Not that it matters. They might was well be wearing redshirts from here on out.
Gotta keep the virgin. He was waiting around for the 'surgery' that was never going to happen, and then rushes home to check on Ri Ta when he realizes she didn't text him the way she promised. Oh by the way...the water she drank was drugged.
Even if it wasn't, she's gotta sleep better with, you know, a mattress and covers and stuff, rather than in an anorak and boots on a slab of dry ice.
It sort of is, yep. His followers have developed brains.
VampDoc Sadface. But those two promised to stay with him, even if they won't blindly follow him anymore. They're kind of like children that way. Does that make him VampDad?
He was cleaning, and he unplugged the fridge. Then he forgot to plug it back in, and all the blood went bad. But there was this one vial...
Rita has a head ache because she was drugged, although they don't know that yet. Lady Admin confesses her dark secret to Jae Wook, who is even more impressed.
And I will never go vegan and I will live on ibuprofen forever. And why is she trying to get into his good graces now? Does she think that will protect her? Then she's throwing her niece away. Ugh.
At the Scooby Gang HQ, there is some Samsung PPL and then, they talk to Awesome Friend, who has analyzed the algae-blood. It's very clear to him that Ji-sang will turn into FrogMan if he does not immediately start eating algae. He is so offended, he storms out immediately.
I am fairly certain that Ji Sang is going to die, based on what Awesome Friend's face looks like.
She asks Jae Wook to make her problem 'go away.' Permanently. But, you know, nicely. Without pain. Since she loves the girl so much.
Ugh ugh ugh. Biatch.
Hahaha. He should be grateful that she's keeping an eye on them and trying to protect the pair. He knows she's VampDoc's woman. And he knows that anyone against VampDoc disappears. So why yell when she's putting her own life on the line? Oh right, writer-nim's idea of him showing emotion.
He tells her to leave VampDoc. She says she can't leave her father. They both know that love is terminal. The end.
Ji-sang carries a lot of water for Rita into her apartment. Yes. It's important to hydrate! He spots a doll in Rita's apartment and neither of them are smart enough to realize it's an evil voodoo doll, put there by the evil biochemist! It can release highly toxic nerve gas when he presses the remote control. It can also walk and carry a knife.
Would that it was. It's a doll for that girl in Kochenia. The fact that Ji Sang immediately curls up and naps with it is not creepy at all, no sir.
Kill Pita or kill Bratty Cancer Girl. Or both, if she chooses.
But before we get to see that, we see vampire sperm! Wow, that's really TMI, show. It does crazy maneuvers instead of swimming straight. Tsts. Rita Friend is quite shocked - and concerned for her friend. Scruff stay cool, though - they still have the Stem Cells. If you mix them with the sperm, good things will come out, he is certain of it.
Actually, they think they have had a break through. I didn't understand it all but basically, they've been focusing from the outside in, when really they need to focus from the inside, out. Or the other way around. Something to do with focusing less on the virus and more on the cells or something. Basically, Ji Sang himself IS the antidote the virus. I think.
Basically the cure kills the patient, with one exception, Pampire. But, heck, didn't we know that like 9 3/4 episodes ago??
He has a LOT of hair.
Beer Cuddle for our second leads! Also getting closer: Rita and Ji-sang (who has fallen asleep, half cuddling the killer doll). She finds questions that he asked her on her computer ... some tough ones. Like: will she swear off meat forever for him?
We don't get to see what he answered, but the question was 'What do you want to do before you die?' and when she sits by him, the voice over is 'I really wish your answer were different.'
He must have replied again that he wanted to retain his virginity. Or perhaps he told the TRUTH, which is that he wants to lose it, but not the usual way. Nope. He wants to try that way, the one that a lot of people won't consider (me included).
They met 6 years ago. He kept submitting papers on vampirism and he kept getting laughed at and eventually kicked out of school and blacklisted... but Ji Sang read a paper and called him, and then it didn't take him long to figure out that Ji Sang WAS a vampire, and they've been together ever since. And that the first time he saw Ji Sang vamp out he didn't sleep for three days. It makes me very nervous that we're suddenly learning about his background.
Yep. It's like those old war movies: the first soldier to show a photo of the girl he plans to marry, is the next one to get a bullet in the head. Sorry, Sidekick, I think your ticket is printed for America.
This girl has no luck.
That's what happens when you dive off a parking deck after befriending a vampire. Every time. Just a thought; Sidekick needs to make his own mace cans with the the VampIndicator juice since it's easier to kill a vampire when he/she is coughing uncontrollably.
Awesome Friend gets some test results printed out and is devastated. Ji-sang will turn into FrogMan. It's certain. He quickly runs to Scruff and gravely tells them that there's no cure and no hope. Rita Friend thinks that's really cool, but Awesome Friend has not told them everything yet, it seems.
This whole scene does not bode well for Ji Sang.
Jae-wook unleashes Glasses - who goes straight to ... we don't know yet.
He tells him to secure the Righteous Team data, knowing that glasses will gleefully destroy everyone, just because he can.
First, Awesome Friend tries to talk to Ji-sang, but it's damn difficult... That's why he takes him to a PPL clothing store. And buys quasi everything. Damn, he is a lost chaebol's son! And we didn't know!
More evidence mounting that Ji Sang is about to die. They're celebrating his birthday early, and Awesome encourages Ji Sang to not waste time, and to travel with Ri Ta and do everything he wants to do. Now.
Last moments of happiness before everything hits the fan.
Son of a bitch.
Classic bastard move, since they have done this how many times now? And Ji-sang falls for it every time.
Hey, finally, something happened! This episode is my favorite so far. Well done.
I'm so torn. Because I agree with you, but I'm really mad.Sidekick is dead with a lot of blood from his head. Could he be brought back like Intern Girl? He'd be Pamp then, but could still do research and cure himself. We are set up for some final episode carnage, though. Looking forward to it, now. Hopefully that will be a good episode too.
