JoAnne: Will you LOOK at how sexy he is. Just LOOK at him. Rrrrrrrrawr...
Eleanor: This episode. I think I'm still hyperventilating. Can't breathe. Too much tension!
Yeah, plus... You Saw Wang Kai this weekend! In person!!!
Remember the good old days, when he could look at someone's lunch on an airplane and know so much? What happened to that early promise, Mr. Ming?
I really loved this sequence. So far Ming Tai has been pretty unflappable, and considering he was kidnapped by the KMT and turned into a spy, that's saying something. I really felt his pain and indecision and all the tensions and loyalties he's been trying to figure out, come clashing to a point where he can no longer ignore them.
Yes because the police are always up for a good body slam. Gets your spine right back into alignment!
Remind me never to creep up on Ming Tai and try and surprise him.
No walnuts for disobeyers!
My heart just hurts right now with what they are trying to accomplish.
Deceitful bitch. Okay, that was harsh, I admit it. Possibly undeserved. Felt good, though.
I get why no one can tell Ming Tai anything, but at least she could be less wishy-washy about her answer. I feel like she revealed more than she was allowed, but that it wasn't necessarily helpful. I'm worried.
Poor lil thing looks so worried. Maybe they'll tell him Santa isn't real, either.
Aw Ming Tai. Clever boy though. Cobra/Viper is a good hunch, but... Ming Tai, do you really think Big Bro would unmask himself that easily?
Pretty soon I'm going to take that hammer and start cracking some nuts, too.
Ah Cheng's face. Haha. When you can't tell secrets, I guess walnut hammering is a good way to release some tension. Do walnuts have a special significance in this drama? I wonder if we are missing something. Joyce, moonlil?
Hahahhhahahah I didn't even notice it when I watched. Too busy staring at Ming Luscious.
Big Bro and Ah Cheng's expressions XD hahahahaha. I know that this scene is super serious, but at the same time it is written so wittily as as to be super funny as well.
We shouldn't be able to see that bit of skin between your pants and socks, Ming Lou. Suspenders, or buy socks that are long enough.
There has to be a reason why they can't tell him though. Everyone is feeling pretty crappy about the whole situation, but yeah, Ming Tai has the really rotten end of the stick on this one.
Look at that pouty face, ahahahahahahahahahha! It's sort of misplaced here, actually. Now he should be displaying genuine anger and worry, not petulance.
But just in case they aren't spies, he still has to be bratty and a baby. This scene was super funny though. Haha. Poor, pouty Ming Tai.
How is this a test? If he agrees to do it and fails, then he sucks. If he doesn't agree to do it, he sucks. He can't possibly do it and remain human, either. This is his brother. What do they want him to do?????
This drama is messing with my head!!! They aren't really going to kill off Ming Lou are they?!?!?! I can see them being crazy enough to do that. There is just enough in this farewell scene that has me convinced he's going to die, but they won't do that, will they? Ack! This drama!
That night, nobody gets much sleep in the Ming house...
So we know that Airplane Wang knows who Ming Lou is. Guo knows too, apparently. And if Trainwreck knows, then Uncle Li must know, and perhaps Mrs. Su. But not Ming Jing? Hmm. Wait though. Airplane Wang and Guo are KMT. They know Lou is KMT, of course. But do they also know he's Communist? What would they be telling Guo that he would think it's okay for Ming Tai to have a job to assassinate his brother/a fellow KMT/the local BOSS? I reject this line of thought.
They can't kill Ming Lou. They just can't! I think that Guo and Wang might know he's KMT, but I have no idea who knows he's also Communist.
So clearly he never intends to be there of course, but I still don't understand why Ming Lou thinks this is in any way a good test of his brother.
There HAS to be a reason. There HAS to! I have to believe this is going to work out.
I give up, honestly.
Even though Ming Tai is being like this, I'm not convinced he will go through with at the last minute. I just can't see him killing Ming Lou.
Yeah, I'm guessing that tea has a bit more than sympathy as ingredients.
Ah! This drama! I really want to know how this plan is going to unfold.
And a thousand watchers sigh and pretend he whispers it to them.
Hahahahahahaha okay I feel sad for her in a way but the way he uses her like she's a prop just makes me laugh so hard.
I'm just mortally afraid that she's going to wake up and know she was betrayed somehow.
I'm just bopping along right about here, not a suspicion in my mind. I'm an idiot.
It was at this point that I figured it out! I got so excited! Though I was still curious about a few details of course. So exciting!
I'm still bumbling along, wondering where he disappeared to, and why he was there in the first place. It's embarrassing, really.
I love watching her but that uniform is so.freaking.hideous. that I'd almost shoot her myself just not to see it again.
You CANNOT shoot Kai Kai! Never! Oh those beautiful eyes *sigh*
Man, all these Ming brothers look so hotte! Damn!
I knew it! Ah Cheng! Ah Cheng!
Before she takes off, she tells the ambulance driver to take Ah Cheng to the military hospital and hands him a passbook of sorts ... inside the ambulance, there is nobody else but Miss Cheng in the back and Uncle Li up front, next to the driver. After giving him the right password ("Hunting"), Jinyun shoots Ah Cheng as full of pain killers as she possibly can and puts bandages on the wound. It's a "clean" shot-through, so no need to take the bullet out. Ming Lou is a good shot, isn't he. Let's all appreciate his skill while we curse him for hurting poor Ah Cheng. What a bunch of idiots.
What if she hadn't gone to the window in the first place?
The scriptwriter wouldn't have allowed it. It was part of the plan!
She is so good. She deserves any Ming she wants! All the Mings for Man Li!Yes!
Except for Ah Cheng. Ah Cheng is mine!
CommentsClever, clever, clever, oh so damn clever! Or isn't it? So many things could go wrong, timing, positions, material, get-aways.... people. People deciding to do something unexpected. OMFG, you Ming-bastards!! You're crazy!! Now we also understand what Ming Lou meant when he asked Ah Cheng a few episodes back whether he could really go through with it and that it would cost him "the most". He has now been punished enough for picking up that watch, I would say.
This was a very stupid plan. The fact that it might work does not prove me wrong.
I think it's a crazy plan, but if it works, it will achieve many things. Play big to win big?
And then, we have Ming Tai. Currently at the sentry post, waiting to kill his own brother. So horrible. Ming Tai, you deserve to be a brat for this forever and nobody can ever again scold you.
Still do not understand how this could possibly be anything but a disaster.
I'm still super worried, let's just push play already for the next episode.
And our BTS for this episode:
