You know, there’s really only one thing I want to do after watching this week’s episode and that is to SCREAM MY FLIPPING HEAD OFF! Seriously, this show has me so unbelievably upset I want to go on a full-on Godzilla-inspired rampage around my living room. And why am I this upset when we only have one episode of this drama left? Well, let’s talk about this episode and see if we can’t figure this out. Shall we?
So last week we left Yu Xi bawling her eyes out and she begs Zhan Cheng not to leave her. After finally realizing all of her stupid reasons for leaving Zhan Cheng were, in fact, STUPID, she begs him to stay and for half a second we thought it might have been too late. However, Zhan Cheng really is the Mr. Darcy of the Dramaverse and he’s never as far away as we think he is. Popping up out of nowhere, Zhan Cheng wraps his arms around Yu Xi and informs her that he’s never going anywhere so she’d better promise to do the same. I can’t say I was all that choked up over this reunion because we knew this was the way things were going to go. I was mostly happy Yu Xi has finally given up on her stupid ideas to abandon Zhan Cheng and realize he’s far too good of a man to let go just because she foolishly thinks this is what everyone wants. (Even though everyone in the entire world already told her REPEATEDLY that they wanted nothing but happiness for her and Zhan Cheng.) Isn’t it nice when your drama heroine finally gets a clue?
With Zhan Cheng and Yu Xi happily back together, and only one more episode left until the end, it’s time for everyone else in this story to find their own version of “happily ever after” and the next couple on that list was none other than Yu An and Fei Fei. Yes, it seems in the time that has passed since Fei Fei announced her departure and actually started back down the mountain, Yu An decided she really was the girl for him and in the most bold move of his entire drama appearance, he went after Fei Fei, forced the cable car operator to bring the car back up the mountain and then asked Fei Fei to stay. Of course she had no hesitation whatsoever in her enthusiastic response and I honestly can’t decide if I like this pairing or not. It seems like Show is trying really hard to convince us that Yu An really does have feelings for Fei Fei but because he’s a quiet and reserved person, he doesn’t do a very good job of showing how he truly feels. For my own sanity’s sake, I shall try to convince myself that this is really true and Yu An really does have feelings for Fei Fei and he’s not just asking her to stay because it’s what his mom wants. I’m not sure how well I can convince myself of this when Yu An is about as reactive as a dead fish but I will try; mostly because I have enough bones to pick with Show at the moment and I really don’t need another.
That being said, I think it’s time to talk about what really has me stomping around my house like a raving lunatic. Anyone care to guess what I’m so upset over? Anyone? Anyone? If you said Bo Yan and/or Vanessa then you’d be right! (Woohoo!) To be perfectly honest, I’m so upset at the moment I don’t even know where to start but I think we’ll start with Vanessa. It’s no secret I’ve been upset with Vanessa for quite a while now, mostly because she’s harbored a ridiculous crush on the slime-ball Bo Yan. After all the times Bo Yan has proved his a complete hoser, Vanessa has chosen to put her faith in him and not just when it comes to business. This week Vanessa invites Bo Yan to become a part of her life, once the baby is born and I was just so not okay with that. Bo Yan has made it clear from the very beginning that he wanted nothing to do with Vanessa and her baby and I’m sorry but one scene with him smiling at a father and son does not rectify his mountain of wrongs. I don’t care how sappy and emotional Vanessa may be as a pregnant woman, her brain should be screaming at her to run as far away from this punk as possible. Sadly, Vanessa does the exact opposite and stays by Bo Yan’s side in his most dire hour, blubbering away about how wonderful life will be, just the three of them and… AUGH! (Sorry! Apparently I’m not over this week’s shenanigans just yet.)
So let’s talk a little bit about Bo Yan, shall we? Because obviously I have a whole lot to say about this idiot and I’m to totally pissed at Show for what it tried to do to me this week. I have spent the past eighteen weeks loathing Bo Yan with every fiber of my being, wishing nothing but horrible things for him from pretty much the very first episode. So, you can imagine my frustration when Show suddenly decides to give Bo Yan a heart and turn him into a man to be pitied. I’m sorry Show but you just can’t do that! Especially not when you spend a good majority of this week’s episode demonstrating just how big of a loser Bo Yan really is. He’s the one who’s responsible for all of his business failings. He’s the one who is constantly egging William on. He’s the one who put Vanessa in danger, trying to pick a fight with William and Zhan Cheng while Vanessa is standing right there. So naturally, he’s the one who thinks (as always) that the world is unjust and he because of that he has some sort of right to go out there and make life miserable for everyone else because apparently if he can’t be happy, no one is allowed to be happy. So, with this sort of warped mindset and a whole episode of crazy stupid on Bo Yan’s part, Show decided to try to give him a heart and make us believe he’s not really a bad person, just misunderstood, and I’M SO NOT OKAY WITH THAT! When I’m made to loathe a villain for nineteen episodes, you’d better just keep that stupid character evil so that when something I’m been wishing would happen for WEEKS finally happens, I can actually enjoy the flipping moment! YES! I WANTED BO YAN TO DIE A THOUSAND SLOW AND PAINFUL DEATHS! But I didn’t want him to show just enough of a streak of humanity to make me waver in my loathing of him first! I wanted to enjoy Bo Yan’s suffering to the bitter end and walk away from this show with a wonderful feeling of satisfaction. Instead, I’ve got my wish for Bo Yan’s death but I feel nothing but upset over it! CURSE YOU SHOW! CURSE YOU!
I obviously need to stop talking about Bo Yan and move on but since there’s nothing happy to talk about, I should probably just wrap this up. I find it rather ridiculous that with one episode left, Yu Xi is in a coma, Ya Ti is recovering from a second heart transplant (and I didn’t even get to talk about all the crazy of that heart attack scene), Bo Yan is dead, Vanessa is left to raise her baby alone and Zhan Cheng is once again wallowing in self-pity as he watches over his comatose love. It seems to me there’s a whole lot left to be resolved and not a lot of time left to get it done. This final episode had better give me the happy ending I’ve been hoping for and stop messing with my emotions! Is that really too much to ask?
So tell me, what did you think of this week’s episode? Were you surprised by any of this week’s events or did you see all of this coming? How do you feel about Bo Yan? This week he proved he’s the scummiest of scum and yet he still had a moment of humanity just human-y enough to make me feel completely frustrated by his demise. Am I the only one feeling this way? Is anyone worried about how this show is going to wrap up? 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!
