JoAnne: It's SO SATISFYING.
I'm just realizing that Ye Hua spends a lot of his screen time in bed. Have you noticed that too?
I get why SuSu couldn't really understand his reasoning - and I'm not saying that Ye Hua couldn't have done a better job - but wouldn't you think that as Bai Qian, she'd have more perspective on what was going on up there?
I doubt that Ye Hua will appreciate it.
So you'll change now, eh? And maybe punish Su Jin? No? You'll stay the same jerk you always were? Then why bother with the self-reflection, old man?
Awwww, 4th Brother was always a love!
Besides, how would he explain the baby?
I feel bad that they lie to her, but she doesn't want to remember so it's not like they have much choice.
I have a list of things.
It's not like you men are a walk in the park, you know.
And he still goes to the Fox Den, that made me laugh pretty hard. Fuck you, Su Jin.
First things first, right?
Wouldn't you think they'd have some kind of messaging service? An owl or something? Save a lot of cloud hopping.
The depth of her cluelessness is just astounding.
He's not going to give her one thing, is he? Everywhere she turns she will know he doesn't want her and doesn't care about this.
Which makes her obsession even more crazy, wow.
OH MY GOD YES
Ye Hua is the MAN, OMG this is awesome.
Look at his FACE.
It is pretty much the single best thing I have ever seen in a drama. When those doors shut in her face? I thought I would pass out from the joy.
*thinking hard about my million dollars*
I wonder does he remember being there?
I'm taking deep calming breaths. It's not working.
CommentsA slow episode, with many very beautiful scenes though. I particularly liked the way Ye Hua and Bai Qian scenes were intercut in the beginning. He refuses to drink the amnesia potion while Bai Qian pours it down her throat first chance she gets. He is wrecked by pain (not by choice, he never wanted to wake up after Zhuxian) while she starts a new life. Because his "betrayal" hurts her so much, she tells herself that all he was was a heavenly trial, and those, you can forget. But he who knows he has not betrayed, but brutally failed her wants to punish himself.
Well, he needs to buck up, because he's got a baby to take care of.
An obvious favorite scene in this episode is the stabbing of course. That he made basically no sound, just glared at her so full of hate and contempt, that made it even better. She isn't even worth talking to. She is the lowest of the low and he makes no secret about it. Not that it will help. She will try until the day she dies.
Can that be soon, please?
My second favorite scene was at the school - it's brief, but it's the second near-miss between them in this episode and it was so moody and beautiful. I don't mind if they do not immediately reconnect - I like how each of them has to find their way in their "new" lives after Su Su disappeared.
At the very least, he's got some maturing to do - it was his impulsive emotions that put them in that spot. I know that he won't have that obstacle to overcome with Bai Qian but he needs time to reflect, repair, plot Su Jin's death...
