Despite Daddy Zhen's brave words though, judging by the sadness on his face, he is not as unaffected by Ying Jie's departure as he let's on.
Fortunately, the doctor was able to assure everyone that Daddy Zhen is not in danger of dying and is recovering nicely.
Daddy Zhen "We didn't tell you the truth about your birth because you WERE our son. It was a none issue to us. If I didn't think you were my own then why would I entrust the company I have built through sweat and blood to you? If I didn't think of you as my own then why would I do everything I can to help you when I realize you have a vision for the company? Is thirty-two years of love and memory together mean so little that everything could be wiped away just because we are not your birth parents? Who?! Who is really the one acting like we are not a family I ask you?!"
Clutching Daddy Zhen's hand, Ying Jie finally breaks down and sob out his apology.
His fear and doubts permanently wiped away, Ying Jie stands in his office once again but this time he has returned fully convinced that he has the right to be there.
With the crisis over, Mama Zhen was able to successfully convince Mama Xia to come back to work at the Zhen household. Daddy Zhen also extends the same invitation to Daddy Xia, but Daddy Xia turns it down because he feels obligated to work at his new job. Hmm... I can't tell if Daddy Zhen is still oppose to Ying Jie and Man An or not.
A furious Ying Qian confronts Yu Ching and lays out everything he has done to show his sincerity towards her but in return Yu Ching has only ever toyed with him.
Worried about a puppy that is trapped underneath a truck, Ying Qian climbs right underneath the car in total disregard for his clothes. Watching Ying Qian who only has thoughts of the puppy's safety, Yu Ching decides to adopt the puppy and becomes "co-parent" with Ying Qian.
Fortunately for Shang De, Daddy Xia realizes that Shang De was really also a victim of the prank and assures Shang De that he still thinks of him fondly.
Feeling the need to figure things out because of his friendship with Daddy Xia, Shang De confronts Li Qi and Xiang Ning separately. Admitting that she knew all along that Li Qi has a girlfriend, Xiang Ning freely confesses to Shang De of her intention to steal Li Qi from Man Li.
Facing the unusually severe Mama Xia, Ying Jie obediently promises that he will not do anything that is remotely intimate with Man An unless he could get all the parents' permission.
Touched by Ying Jie's thoughtful gift, Man An walks with Ying Jie while holding his hands. Reminding Man An of their promise to Mama Xia, Ying Jie laughs when Man An decides that they could just hold the lion's paws.
Really, not even holding hands?? I am starting to feel like our lead's romance is turning into an elementary school romance...
Sitting in his office expecting to meet with a factory representative, Ying Jie looks up in surprise when the factory representative's assistant introduces herself "Hi, I am the assistant, Xia Man An."
I wonder why no one is asking Daddy Zhen if he still opposes Ying Jie and Man An being together. I just can't see Daddy Zhen being so stubborn in his opposition especially if Mama Zhen would join in to convince Daddy Zhen. Oh, well, I am not one to complain about having more time for all the sweet scenes... albeit I really feel like I am watching an innocent high school romance.
By the way, did anyone else cry buckets over Daddy Zhen's hospital bed speech? I really wished the director had Ying Jie shown more emotion because it seemed a bit unreal that he could be that calm under the circumstance.
On Man Li's front, I hope the show knows what they are doing because as a viewer I am starting to sway towards Shang De as Man Li's love line. Not that Li Qi is bad at all, but as a character he really is not as interesting as Shang De... which is terrible since it is obvious that the show is pretty firm that Man Li will end up with Li Qi.
