Oh my goodness! I don’t know how any of you fared while watching this week’s episode but I suffered from a wildly excessive amount of feels and good grief, I’m just not sure what to make of them all!
This week’s episode started out happy enough, with Zhan Cheng and his family celebrating the return of his eyesight and I was oh so happy for them all. After suffering so much worry on Zhan Cheng’s behalf, it’s nice that his family’s biggest dream has finally come true. To have Zhan Cheng back and better than ever has to be such a weight off all their shoulders and it just makes my heart happy to know that this family has such happy days ahead of them.
Unfortunately, this moment of happiness was laced with sadness as Yu Xi’s imminent departure became apparent and it broke my heart to watch them all accept the inevitable. I don’t know why it made me so sad to watch Zhan Cheng’s family say their goodbyes to Yu Xi but it did. I mean it’s not like Yu Xi is actually going anywhere. Sure, she may be leaving Zhan Cheng’s house but that doesn’t mean she’s leaving his life for good. As much as I know this to be true, it still made me ridiculously sad to watch Yu Xi and Zhan Cheng say their last farewell. Silly me! I know there’s no way this is going to be the end for Zhan Cheng and Yu Xi, they’re the OTP for crying out loud! Even so, watching Yu Xi pack up her bags and go back home made me want to cry and Zhan Cheng pushing that call button very nearly did me in! Well, that and watching him mope around his house, calling for a Yu Xi who was no longer there… Ugh! Is there anything more sad than a man pining for his lady?
At least we’ve finally reached the place where Zhan Cheng is willing to admit Yu Xi is the one for him. He may not have admitted it verbally, at least not yet, but he hesitated to answer William’s question and we all know what that means. Those five seconds of hesitation are all the answer we need at the moment, so I’m satisfied. Okay, so I’m a little more than satisfied. Just watching Zhan Cheng and Yu Xi together this week was enough to make my heart skip a couple of beats. The way these two light up when they’re around each other is enough to make me feel all the warm-fuzzies but there’s more to their relationship than just the stuff that makes you feel good. These two have always been able to help each other out on a much deeper level, pushing each other to be better, to try harder, to never give up and I love that about them. They’re more than just friends, they’re soul-mates. These two aren’t afraid to speak up, tell it like it is and even when they disagree, they find a way to get over it or through it and see the merit in what the other has to say. From the very beginning Yu Xi has been the one pushing Zhan Cheng to try harder, to not give up, and I love that now it’s his turn, forcing Yu Xi to accept the fact that she’s not responsible for the actions of others. It’s a difficult lesson for Yu Xi to learn but it’s also necessary and I love Zhan Cheng for being the one to teach her this because he’s doing it in the most loving way possible. (Pardon me while I swoon.)
While I may be swooning over Zhan Cheng, I’m most definitely not swooning over Bo Yan. On the contrary, I’m still wishing I could throw bricks at his head but only because the’s the slimiest slime-ball to ever walk the face of the earth. I knew he stepped out in front of that car on purpose! I knew those proposal documents were fake! I knew he was just using Yu Xi to make Big City fail! (Man, sometimes being right isn’t all it’s cracked up to be…) Bo Yan is such a nasty piece of work, I really wish that car had hit him harder but it didn’t and he’s apparently made a full recovery. (Dang it!) That smug smile on his face at the D12 bidding was so incredibly annoying I just… Grrrr! I’m happy he got an unpleasant shock when he realized Zhan Cheng’s eyesight was back, he deserved it. Actually, that whole scene made me happy, not because William was on the verge of socking Bo Yan in the nose (though that was pretty great) but because Zhan Cheng was so confident that this wasn’t the end of things. *sigh* He’s just so cool! (Oh… Sorry! I got sidetracked by Zhan Cheng’s awesomeness for a moment. Moving on…) I’m happy Yu Xi finally had enough of Bo Yan’s crap and has decided to dump his sorry behind. I was cheering her on as she told that scum-bag this was the end and I was even happier when she told him she never wanted to see him again. Hooray for Yu Xi and her sudden surge of gumption! I guess that little Zhan Cheng pep talk did her some good.
While I’m pretty sure Yu Xi could have handled Bo Yan and his stupidity, when he came to visit her at her home, I wasn’t at all opposed to Zhan Cheng stepping in on Yu Xi’s behalf. It’s nice to know there are chivalrous men in this world and even better than Zhan Cheng is one of them. I know Yu Xi isn’t quite ready to admit her own feelings for Zhan Cheng but at least she knows she’s got a very noble man on her side, even if she can only see him as a friend/ex-boss at the moment. I do believe Yu Xi’s thoughts of Zhan Cheng are going to start taking on a more romantic tone in the weeks to come, especially now that Bo Yan is out of the picture. Now that Yu Xi is single, she’s free to think of her former boss in any way that she chooses and I think this incident with Bo Yan will be the spark that turns to flame. Honestly, I don’t think it’s going to take much for Yu Xi to see that she’s been falling for her boss for a very log time. In fact, I’m pretty sure one flashback montage will be enough to convince her Zhan Cheng has been the one for her for a very long time…
So tell me, what did you think of this week’s episode? Did you feel as many different emotions as I did this week or am I letting my own exhaustion get the better of me? Is anyone else having a hard time figuring out Bo Yan? I know he’s a scum-ball but he has moments when he almost seems to care and that confuses the crap out of me. I’m going to continue to doubt everything he does, because he’s proven himself a chronic liar, but there are times when I almost think he’s being sincere and I don’t like it! What are your thoughts on Vanessa? She gave Bo Yan a car and said it was a company gift but did anyone else feel like this was really just her trying to buy his affection? How long do you think it will take for Yu Xi to realize she’s fallen for Zhan Cheng? Do you think Zhan Cheng will find a way to win this D12 business? You know I always love hearing from you so be sure to let me know what you’re thinking by leaving me a comment below!
