Sparks: It's nice to tap into much sweeter (and some sadder) emotions for a while.
JoAnne: We're so close to the end...that kiss better be from Mars.
Shuk: As long as WeiBiatch doesn't show up, I'm pretty okay with it.
His tricks looked like something a kid would come up with. I don't get why his teammates were so impressed?
I'm giggling like crazy over the typo, please leave it in.
She just needs to get motivated to scrape him off. Sorry. Jia Sen, but you wore out your welcome 5 episodes ago. No doubt he's a sweet boy who needs lots and lots of therapy.
He's become the consummate entertainment professional.
Mars has become so laid back and chipper. :)
New Mars has on too much shirt.
Still with a V-shaped neckline, so it's a good thing.
Maybe Mumu wouldn't be lonely if she kept him in her room like she's supposed to instead of locked in isolation for a year?
Maybe someone could go out and make another friend out of the 1 billion people wandering the streets?
In all honesty, I'm surprised she still hasn't gained any social skills in a year to expand her base of friends and acquaintances. After being in a holding pattern for an entire year, I don't know if I have a lot of sympathy for her.
Yes to heartbreaking. But is she really NOT realizing that she made a decision (though pressured) and acted on it and now has to bear the consequences?
But she's wishing why the decision had to even be made. Why couldn't they just be in love and be happy and have no obstacles? Um, because that's life, Missy!
Exactly. It's not that she doesn't know why they are the way they are, and it's not that she's questioning the decision she made. She believes that the circumstances of her life result in this particular way, and she wishes it weren't true.
She barely moved from her non-action non-decision-making and let everything happened to her. So it's silly to feel that circumstances bullied her into her solitude and aloneness. But I like that she wears his scarf to talk to her parents.
Okay, now THAT is a decision that I call halfway intelligent.
Go, go, go!!!
If they're getting off the bus, he's going to film where she is currently. Getting on the bus means going AWAY from Mars. Doesn't it? So DON"T go, go, go! (I meant go after the girls. lol)
It's an excellent decision to go race to your love, even if you have to trample all those twinkies to do it. She has sensible shoes, so it won't hurt her...
It's her terribly low self-esteem. She still thinks he is not for her.
Yes. But she should remember what he said at the dance and take courage from that.
Just a peek - like that poster she keeps rolled away in her bedroom...
It's all she trusts herself with, awww. I disagree that it is her self-esteem that is the issue, though. It's her misguided take on what friendship requires and also on whether she fits with Mars, living such different types of lives.
Someone explain to me why she is running.
Impulse? And then once she started she couldn't stop? Plus that mob of fans would run over over? This chase up and down streets cracks me up.
Maybe she thinks it would be too hard to face him? She wants to be with him but feels she can't be.
Just stop already and let him tackle-hug you, dammit!!
I LOVE the way his hand just tentatively slides into hers as he sidles around to look her in the face. And then he reaches up to wipe her tears - so tender.
This was truly lovely but they stole a boat, guys.
Maybe it's owned by a fan who will forgive him. And if the owner refuses to prosecute, then he's golden.
I know we're a little mad at Yi Zhi but his running back and forth: "Lake...! Lake...! Which lake?!!" So funny.
It's amusing that it isn't the tired "Oops out of gas let's spark in the backseat" ploy. He really had no motive other than to spend time with her.
And all this standing up on a boat. I am very impressed.
He finally realizes she's saying it in everything she's not saying. It's a little dizzying but worth it. Head movement and everything. Finally!!
I was happy watching this after what felt like years of waiting for this. Yaaassss!
He's waving so enthusiastically at their backs. I love that Mars thought to give her all those numbers.
He wants to be found. I love him.
Lalaaaa, can't hear you.
Deef, I'm deef.
Oh, no, don't tell me...
Grrr. Can't we forget about them yet?
The US National Center for Biotechnology compared mental facilities in New York state, Taipei, and Zienjiang Mental Hospital in mainland China and found there are more females admitted to Taipei City Psychiatric Center than the other locations. Looking at Wei Mama, I can totally understand this.
Gah!! The way his hand just wraps around hers! I never thought I had a hand fetish but seriously! (And I worried about the check, too! lol)
His hands are gorgeous and I never once thought of the check. Hands.
Hopefully Yi Zhi is nearby to pay for it, just in case.
I kinda get her, but I don't like that she's someone else blackmailing people into doing what she wants them to do. Doesn't he also have a right to be with her and care for her if he wants to?
Is his career that precarious that spending a little time with his dying mother could hurt it? (I hated when they wrestled over her IV, too. Needles and IVs skeeve me out!)
No, he does not have a right to take care of her or be with her if she doesn't want him with her. But I wish she'd reconsider.
I'm guessing he hasn't had a lot of contact with her over the last few years, so it's cruel of her to not to spend more time with him, knowing the grim reaper is standing behind your playing
Okay, he is making this work. Kinda.
It's a horrible, tough thing to go through no matter what your career path. He's getting that quality time in, that's what matters.
Tiny dribs and drabs, all the more precious for their brevity.
Oh no. Poor, poor boy.
I love the Yi Zhi hid to cry. Trying to be strong for Mars but got caught. Poor, sad Mars!
This is so sad. He really believed she would improve, I think.
Poor poor guy. Come here, gimme a hug. in one of your V-shirts.
Maybe tell them that your cash cow needs time for himself? I wish this guy had his back at least once.
The least they can allow him is all that time he didn't get to take while she was still alive. And I doubt he wants all the public sympathy rubbed in his face while he's grieving.
Tony is running a business. How does he not have Mars back? He's not raging at him to return, he's asking for information. How long is Mars going to be away? How many projects will have to be rearranged for how many different people? What projects will need to be cancelled altogether because they can't make all the schedules work? These are real things that require real work and they cannot be done unless Mars gives at least minimal information. Tony isn't at fault here. He's trying to do his job.
I can see both sides of this. Yes, Mars should give Tony Ge a date for his return. He has become this conscientious in the past year. But right now, he probably feels like he can barely move, much less see himself out of his sadness. He can't see a future without his mother.
Two weeks and he didn't even call Momo?
His behavior is excessive.
He looks like a lost waif, too.
He finally realizes that she is his anchor. I hope she realizes it too.
So sweet. But the blanket doesn't even cover his bare feet?
They should have yanked the one off the sofa and covered him with that one, too.
The blanket thing bugged me, too. Don't they have a bigger blanket? They have to remember how much taller he is than either of them.
What, can you buy blankets based on height in Taiwan?
Aww, so sweet.
The entire second half of this episode is so sad. On a side note, I've always thought this part probably didn't take much acting for Jiro - it's been just him and his Mom since he was 17 and they're very close. But Momo finally realizes Mars needs her, too. It's not just Jia Sen - who has a mommy, btw. Even if she is a psycho...
I feel bad for Mars Mom to some extent, but with the physical brutality she applied to him while he was growing up (including her recent actions), I'm glad she isn't around to poison Mars and Momo's relationship.
