Worried about An Xi, You Qian arrives just in time to get in a fight with Yan Ze. Stunned to see Yan Ze holding An Xi as hostage to threaten You Qian, Ya En surprises everyone by grabbing the cell phone from You Qian and runs away. Another chase starts and ends abruptly when Ya En almost gets hit by a car. Grabbing An Xi at the last second right after she pushed Ya En out of harms way, You Qian falls to the ground with An Xi in his arm. The last one to arrive, Yan Ze ignores our two unconscious leads and rushes to Ya En's side. Panicking when he finds Ya En unresponsive, Yan Ze gives one last glance at the cell phone he desperately wanted just moments ago and chose to rush Ya En to the hospital instead.
Waking up to the horrifying realization that You Qian got hit by the car to save her, An Xi frantically pleas with an unconscious You Qian to wake up and promises the heaven to do anything for him to be okay.
Guessing from the lonely cell phone on the ground that Yan Ze had chose Ya En over it, You Qian heads to the hospital to check on Ya En.
Back at the hospital, Yan Ze sits at the emergency room hopelessly as he mutters "I should've never let you come close to me..." Thankfully, the doctors were able to save Ya En and Yan Ze slips away while Ya Ru (Yan En's brother) is busy talking to the nurse.
Not angry at President Zhou anymore, Yong Qing shows up at the hospital room to visit her god-mother and tells her that she is going to draw a portrait of President Zhou as a way to understand her better. (Yong Qing had overheard Ya Ru saying the best way to know someone was to look at them as you draw them.) Their differences patched up, Yong Qing asks President Zhou to give Yan Ze (her brother) a second chance.
Apparently Ya En's sobbing complaints must had some affect on her brother because when everyone eventually tracked Yan Ze down (thanks to An Xi who remembered about his volunteering work at an orphanage), instead of stopping his sister from seeing Yan Ze, Ya Ru actually encouraged Ya En to approach Yan Ze.
Already somewhat softened after a speech by Yong Qing telling him that she has only ever wanted him to be a brother and encouragement from You Qian, Yan Ze quietly takes Ya En's hand in his when she shyly says "I am just glad you are okay."
Patching up their differences, You Qian tells Yan Ze that while it was great to battle it out with a worthy opponent but he hope there is not a next time. Smiling in reply, Yan Ze shakes hands with You Qian.
Wrapping his arm around Ya En, Yan Ze listens quietly as Ya En tells him "Thank you for proving that it was not wrong to trust you." Holding Ya En tightly, Yan Ze whispers "I am sorry, I am sorry." Yeah! Not a doomed romance after all.
Realizing that Chi Lin is the perfect fit for the girl that has always been there but he has ignored, Jiang Hai Kuo is soon at the B&B professing his undying love... until You Qian's secretary also shows up with a bouquet of roses for her as well.
Already jumpy to hear of You Qian's "passing", An Xi's friend is scared spitless when You Qian pretends to be a resentful ghost back from the dead to seek revenge. Smiling at his old "nemesis", You Qian reveals himself and cordially accepts a belated apology from him.
And we end with An Xi and You Qian sharing a smile as they remember how a much younger An Xi meets a much more nerdy looking You Qian so many years ago.
The words on the ending scene "Maybe, On our first glance, our hope and waiting turned into disappointment. But, we are thankful that we both had the courage to take a second look at each other."
The END!!! Well, I was fairly satisfied with the ending. I really wished the writer did a little more on Jiang Hai Kuo's romance and maybe allowed Chi Lin to finally have the courage to confess to Ya Ru but I guess an open ending was more realistic.
Overall, I would rate When I See You Again as a 7 on a scale of 10 for a Taiwanese drama. The premise of a nerd coming back as the hottest guy in town was certainly really intriguing but unfortunately the show didn't milk that premise for too long before the story got caught up with the corporate shenanigans and a long guessing game of when An Xi will find out who her mother is.
In fact one big complaint (but also one that helped to keep my interest) I had with the show is that the side characters like Ya En and Yan Ze's romance became much more interesting than the two leads'. I would even argue that Yan Ze's character development almost seemed more complete than the either An Xi and You Qian's.
Still, overall I did enjoy this show quite a bit and would recommend it as a light watch.
