Moon River Episode 11 Recap
Confused by Liu Bing's seething anger and the way he keeps picking a fight with her the next few days, Xiao Xi finally exploded when Liu Bing refuses to eat the dinner she brought home. Xiao Xi just got fired from her job so that's why she was extra impatient.
Regretting right after she yelled at Liu Bing, Xiao Xi tires to apologize to him but the two ends up getting into another argument.
After yet another argument with Liu Bing, Xiao Xi is stunned into silence when he finally confesses to her about the dinner he had prepared on the night that she went out with Jian Che and him witnessing the hug.
Of course Liu Bing couldn't bring himself to admit to Xiao Xi the real reason why he is so angry and a rather puzzled Xiao Xi is left with more questions than answers.
Her mind still dazed by Liu Bing's refusal, an expressionless Sha Xing seems unmoved by the surprised party and becomes even colder as she looks at the painting that Hao Nan has personally painted as her birthday present. The painting is of a smiling Sha Xing and the three boys in their younger days.
Liu Bing "Sha Sha, what do you keep torturing yourself. You know nothing will change."
Sha Xing "I know. That's why I will change. You will see a new me from tomorrow on. I won't shed another tear over losing you ever again."
Still peeved at one another, Xiao Xi pretends to not care when Liu Bing refuses to go back to Xiao Xi's hometown with everyone (Jian Che, Hao Xue and Rui Xi) for the holidays. However, giving off a mysterious vibe, Jian Che tells Hao Xue "Liu Bing will come ... because I am there."
Knowing very well why Liu Bing had shown up, Jian Che tells Xiao Xi "Liu Bing is different from me. His personality doesn't allow him to say things as it is and that's why he had to do so many things just to come here... Don't you believe he came here for you?" Shaking her head, Xiao Xi assures Jian Che that Liu Bing probably had to follow them because he had no money, "plus, I don't have that much charm for him to follow me all this way."
Doing his intense eye thing again, Jian Che replies "I think you do." I am so confused by this guy. It seems pretty obvious that he likes Xiao Xi so why is he speaking up for Liu Bing and what's stopping him to just confess to her??
Overjoyed to have two good looking men to
Muttering to herself, Xiao Xi first looks at Jian Che "He is gentle and thoughtful. I wonder what kind of girl would be good enough for him. He always shows up when I need help. He is really my angel."
Her face turning into a frown when her eyes move on to Liu Bing "He is like the biggest trouble making machine! But the strange thing is that even though I fight with him constantly I can't seem to dislike him... and even... " Unable to bring herself to finish her sentence, Xiao Xi's cheeks turns bright pink as she looks down in embarrassment.
Ah... Young love... so confusing. I really don't understand Jian Che at all but judging by the previews I think we are going to get a better gauge of of Jian Che's feelings once Liu Bing and Xiao Xi confirm their relationship. There were a lot of "moments" in this week's episodes between Xiao Xi and Jian Che. But Xiao Xi's question of "I wonder what kind of girl would be a match for him" makes me wonder as much as Xiao Xi is flustered to have someone like Jian Che pay attention to her, she has actually never imagined herself with him. In contrast, Xiao Xi has always been very comfortable with Liu Bing so I guess he would be much more real to her than Jian Che would be.
By the way, it was kind of weird how angry Liu Bing was at Jian Che for "stealing" his girl because really, shouldn't it be the other way around?? But then, I am not too happy with Jian Che either since he has been sending out mixed signals since episode one. (For example, if he really likes Xiao Xi, then he should've been a lot more angry about Liu Bing sharing a room with her.)
If there is one person in this show I feel rather badly for, then it has to be Hao Nan. The poor guy is smart enough to figure out that Sha Xing is still in love with Liu Bing but he just can't seems to cut off his unhealthy relationship with her. Sha Xing hurts him repeatedly but then he just happily runs back to her whenever she calls. Hao Nan's character probably would be a villainous one in most dramas, but at least at this point he just seems like a guy who struggles between his friendship with Liu Bing and his ill fated crush on Sha Xing.
