Oh good grief! I don’t know how this show does it but it has me jumping for joy, dying from laughter, squeeing from a massive attack of warm-fuzzies and crying out in angry frustration all in a single episode. Seriously! I feel like I’ve just gotten of a roller-coaster of feels and I’m so shaken from the ride I’m not sure I’ll ever recover!
So we started out this week’s episode with Zhan Cheng and Yu Xi agreeing to take the best care of Ya Ti possible, without it looking like they were trying to take care of her at all and you know what? I was pretty happy about that. Now that everyone knows that Ya Ti has Luo Han’s heart, it makes sense that those who once loved Luo Han would want to do their part to take care of the one who’s keeping that heart beating. With Zhan Cheng and Ya Ti both having such big hearts, it just wouldn’t be like them to leave Ya Ti alone. They’re compelled helpers, always trying to take care of those around them and that’s part of why we love them so sure, I’ll go along with them helping Ya Ti set up a cookie shop at Big City because why not? It’s a whole heck of a lot better than Zhan Cheng announcing he’s going to take care of Ya Ti by way of dumping Yu Xi (which is what I’ve been fearing from the very beginning) so a cookie shop it is! Not gonna lie, the way Yu Xi and Zhan Cheng came to this agreement to care for Ya Ti together made me breathe an audible sigh of relief. I thought to myself, “Okay, great! Now we don’t have to worry about my adorable OTP separating for something as stupid as a heart.” And I went on my merry way.
Well merry enough anyway. Unfortunately Bo Yan had to show up and remind us all of the million reasons why we can’t stand him. He’s such a prickly little prick. Always trying to force his way into people’s lives when they obviously don’t want him there. He did it with Yu Xi when he tried to convince her to take him back and he’s doing the same thing now with Vanessa, trying to force his way into her life by pretending to care about her and the baby. You would think that when someone sits across from you at the dinner table, and they’re giving you death glares, you’d be able to pick up on the fact they really don’t want you there. But with Bo Yan it seems he’s pretty much clueless to those types of non-verbal cues. Honestly, watching Bo Yan try to force Vanessa into eating lunch was nauseating but it was even worse when he dragged her to a prenatal appointment and then took notes on the whole thing like he was in some sort of business meeting. I’m beginning to wonder if this guy has a heart at all. I mean here he is, in the one place where he could really make a connection with both Vanessa and their baby, and he’s so busy taking notes on his phone he misses everything. I get that he’s not interested in keeping this baby but if he’s going to make the effort to give this child the best care possible, he should at least show some sort of interest while the child (and mom) are getting said care. If I cared for Bo Yan at all, I’d wish for him to observe this tiny miracle as he/she grows and I’d wish for him to connect with this child and come to some point of enlightenment in which he realizes this child isn’t just a thing, it’s a person, his person, and step up to become the man he ought to be. Of course if that happened, he’d have to be with Vanessa for life and I just can’t wish that upon anyone. Vanessa’s much better off without him so again I find myself wishing Bo Yan would just disappear forever and let this poor girl and her baby live happily ever after without him.
To offset my frustration with Bo Yan we got an incredibly hilarious little encounter with Zhan Cheng’s family and oh my word! That whole scene had me laughing so hard my kids had to come downstairs and check on me, to make sure I was alright. Oh boy! I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard while watching a drama! It’s just the way Fei Fei’s dad kept dropping the least subtle hints on the face of the planet and the way Yu Xi and Zhan Cheng kept looking at each other… Hahahahaha! I’m still cracking up! The whole, “Here, have this diamond and make it into a ring for your engagement” had me laughing so hard my sides hurt but the “Here, eat this food because it’s good for fertility and it’ll make you have pretty babies” had me rolling on the floor with tears streaming down my face. There’s nothing quite like an over-enthusiastic family to set the mood. Obviously. I mean did you see the kiss that came after!?! Whew! Kisses in the rain are the best! (And creeper family members watching you kiss in the rain are even better! Oh gosh! The tears! I couldn’t stop the tears!)
After squeeing wildly over another wonderful OTP kiss, I calmed myself down enough to appreciate Fei Fei and her confession, not only to Yu An but to Mama Chen as well. It took a lot of guts for Fei Fei to admit her feelings to both Yu An and his mom but she did and she did it in such a way that Yu An should feel no pressure from her. I get that he’s having second thoughts about his life choices but I’m convinced that stems more from the conversation he had with Yu Xi than anything Fei Fei said in her confession. By telling Yu An that their mom had always wished for him to settle down with a nice girl and raise a family, Yu Xi has planted that first tiny seed of doubt into Yu An’s mind and if that’s what sets things in motion for his ultimately giving up the priesthood, I’m going to be disappointed. Surely Yu An has to know that his mom has always wanted nothing but the best for him. Both she and Yu Xi have said that no matter what Mama Chen’s wishes were, she wanted her children to be free to live their own lives, not the dreams she had for them, so Yu An should rest assured in that fact. Mama Chen has made it perfectly clear that she loves and supports her children, no matter what so Yu An shouldn’t feel any guilt for dedicating his life to the priesthood. However, I don’t see this being the case. The combination of Fei Fei’s confession and the realization that his mother always wished for him to settle down and have a family seems to be making Yu An rethink some things. It’s too early to tell if Yu An’s going to make any sort of life changes but he’s definitely going to be doing some serious thinking.
Unfortunately Yu An isn’t the only one who’s going to be pondering over some things. Yu Xi has a horrible habit of overhearing things she shouldn’t and I’m so very, very disturbed by the fact she overheard Ya Ti wailing over Luo Han’s broken heart. I don’t need to rant any more over the whole cell memory crap but seriously! SERIOUSLY!?! Ya Ti should not be sitting in the hospital right now, just because she found out Yu Xi and Zhan Cheng are dating. PEOPLE DON’T DIE OF A BROKEN HEART! They may wish for death. They may go out and seek death. But people don’t just fall over because their heart is broken and they most certainly do NOT have their hearts broken because the former owner of said heart is hanging around, throwing a temper tantrum because it’s no longer the object of affection it once was. Honestly, if we’re going to stick with the cell memory crap, we might as well chalk this whole episode up to Luo Han throwing a fit because she can’t have her man, and if that’s the case, this girl doesn’t deserve Zhan Cheng at all. Maybe she deserved him at one point but not any longer. Nope! This putting another’s life in danger just because you’re hurting is a bunch of crap and it needs to stop. (See? This is why we don’t bother with cell memory! It’s just stupid and it makes it sound like you’ve got a haunted organ inside you. Yeesh! I’d have that sucker removed ASAP!) Sadly, Yu Xi doesn’t believe this cell memory crap is actually crap so she’s now going to spend a ridiculous amount of time trying to figure out if she should stay with Zhan Cheng or give him up to the haunted heart and that just makes me mad. I know this pain is inevitable and it’s going to have to be endured if we’re ever going to have our happily ever after in the end but… UGH! I’m not looking forward to the next few episodes.
So tell me, what did you think of this week’s episode? Did you experience the same roller-coaster of feels that I did or were you more able to handle this week’s ups and downs? I always love hearing from you so be sure to let me know what you’re thinking by leaving me a comment below!
