Question of the hour: How many psych tests should you administer to your daughter's boyfriend as to make sure he is not a psycho?
Back to the actual story. Ji Wei opens her door to reveal Yuan Fang ready to help her move to his house. Ignoring a hesitating Ji Wei, Yuan Fang starts to pack Ji Wei's luggage and urges her to cook him dinner at his house.
Looking at Mama Zhou's blank face, Ji Ru assures her mother that she will be happy. Mama Zhou shocks Ji Ru and her boyfriend when she breaks down and starts to cry "This is not at all how I imagined!"
Yuan Fan "Are you still going to say it?"
Ji Wei "You know what I am going to say?"
Yuan Fan "That you don't want to come live with me or that you decided to be with Dai Yao Qi?"
Yuan Fan takes out Ji Wei's phone memory card and Shao Min's letter to show her that he knows everything.
Unmoved by Ji Wei's apology, Yuan Fang tells her "There is only one way to punish unfaithfulness."
The next morning, Yao Qi walks up at the train station after waiting for Ji Wei all night, but there is no sight of Ji Wei.
Yuan Fang shows up at Ji Wei's parent's house bearing gifts that Ji Wei supposedly asked him to bring.
Yuan Fang goes on to tell Yao Qi that Ji Wei has moved in with him and to demonstrate how lovey dovey they are, Yuan Fang starts to name off all the memories Ji Wei and Yao Qi shares.
Yao Qi sits on their wall and mutters "I guess there was never a black hole so of course we can't fall in."
Instead of being moved, Yuan Fang hands Ji Wei her cell phone and tells her that he will give her a last chance to call Dai Yao Qi to tell him that she no longer has feelings for him.
Surprisingly Ji Wei calls her mom instead and talks as if nothing is wrong. Mama Zhou reminds Ji Wei that her sister's wedding is only three days away and to be sure to come. Ji Wei worries that she might not make it and tells Mama Zhou that she wish she could be eating dinner with them.
Ji Wei hangs up the phone with a somewhat final sounding "Goodbye" and starts to sob.
Yuan Fang "Well, you have used up your last chance."
Ji Wei screams after him "I gave up my chance to YOU!" I think referring to the fact Yuan Fan now still have a chance to let her go.
Mama Zhou "What so good about Zhou Ji Wei. She is so clumsy and dumb."
Smiling, Yao Qi "That's true. Her legs are so thick, she has no waist, and she is like a table with legs." Ha, ha...
Yao Qi "But Zhou Ji Wei, she cried with me, comforted me and told me she would fall in (the black hole) with me. I still don't believe it. I will not believe until I hear Zhou Ji Wei tell me herself."
A Bin picks up Yao Qi at the train station. Yao Qi tells A Bin that his gut instinct is telling him Ji Wei is in trouble. A Bin wasn't too convinced but decides to show Yao Qi where Yuan Fang's grandparent's place is anyway. (Remember he followed Yuan Fang and Ji Wei on a date once)
Ji Wei asks Yuan Fang if he ever hung stockings in hopes Santa would come. Ji Wei's stocking has always remained empty so she wondered if maybe she is a bad kid, but Yao Qi convinced her that he was the one to steal all her present. Yuan Fang coldly comments that no wonder Ji Wei and Yao Qi like each other, since they are both fools.
The mood turns tense when Ji Wei angers Yuan Fang by bringing up the fact Yuan Fang is just using her to get over his ex-girlfriend.
In her hurry to stop Yuan Fang, Ji Wei jerks the handcuff by accident and finds that in Yuan Fang's distraction he has not locked the other end of the handcuff.
With a determined stare, Ji Wei tells Yao Qi through the door "I don't like you anymore because I have grown up. You need to grow up too. Don't come bother me anymore."
Taking a deep breath, Yao Qi replies "Can you come out? Just let me see you are safe then I'll leave."
Moved by Ji Wei, Yuan Fan says "Don't make me so moved. What if I really fall in love with you?" Um... if you would kidnap a girl you don't love, I shudder to think what you would do to one you love...
Ex-girlfriend "How are you doing lately?"
Yuan Fan "I think I finally fell in love again with a girl. I thought there is no way I would fall in love with her. I miscalculated."
Ex-girlfriend "That great!"
Yuan Fan "But she doesn't love me..."
The tenth sadness: What traps us, in actuality, is our heart.
This was an extremely hard episode to watch. A great episode but I felt like I was sitting on pins and needles. I spent the whole time wishing the icky Yuan Fang would just disappear.
I thought it was an awesome twist that Yuan Fan didn't actually love Ji Wei. He just figured if he picked one that was naive like Ji Wei then she can't possibly disappoint him. When she did disappoint him, he treats punishing her as a way of punishing the whole fickle world.
Personally, I would not have hesitated to knock him out with a pan or something. Worrying about his future would be the last thing in my mind. In my opinion, Yuan Fan needs some serious help not just a simple go your way and be healed. Someone who would resort to kidnapping over a girl he doesn't even love is obviously beyond your garden variety emotional problem.
That last few scenes with Ji Wei using all her courage to protect Yao Qi is so awesome. That silly girl. Like always, Yao Qi comes first no matter what even if that mean putting her own life in danger.
I was really afraid that this whole kidnapping thing will drag on for a while, but the preview for episode 11 gives me hope!
Apple In Your Eye Episode 11 Preview
Mama Zhou is asking everyone where Ji Wei is. (I am assuming they are at Ji Ru's wedding) A timid voice come from the door and Ji Wei shyly says "I am here."
Surprised at Ji Wei's disheveled appearance, Mama Zhou says "Why do you look like that?!"
Ji Wei "It was raining so..."
Mama Zhou "How about your boyfriend? Did you bring him?"
Waving her hand to signal whoever behind the door to come out, Yao Qi sheepishly shows his face.
Yeahhhhh!!!!!! There is hope!
