True to his fame of being a genius criminal profiler, Simon stuns the local police as he starts making statements about the serial killer just from the clues they have gathered so far. (ie. The criminal's age, personality to what vicinity he would be living at.) Convinced that most of the kidnapped kids have already been killed, Simon points the police to three areas to start searching for dead bodies.
Grabbing Jenny's hand in his sleep, Simon mutters "Silence... go sleep by yourself okay." Pulling her hand from Simon's grasp, Jenny wonders if "Silence" is Simon's girlfriend's name. Silence is the straight translation of the Chinese word here. By the way, who sleeps in a bathrobe?
Curious why Simon seems so sure that he would be able to give the police more details about the killer once they found the body, Jenny is thoughtful when Simon replies "Because the bodies will show me all of the killer's desires."
Quickly closing in on the killer, Simon personally walks the grounds of where they found the killer's first victim to figure out where the killer is. Notice Kitt following Simon as he walks!
Staring at the contraption in the killer's house that looks so much like the one he just built, Simon lays down right on the table and imagines himself letting the knifes falling right on top of him.
In case you thought the case was over, Xun Ran (2nd male lead, detective and Jenny's friend) finds a bunch of puzzling numbers painted on the killer's wall but the killer refuses to say what the numbers are about. The numbers are probably from the big bad that is Simon's arch enemy.
Another indication of the big bad thus far it's that someone is stationed right outside of Simon's house and taking pictures of everyone that comes to visit him.
Planning to move to another city, Simon assures his friend that Jenny would be willing to follow him and continue on being his assistant. However, proving that the all knowing Simon could be fallible Jenny turns Simon down on his offer of continual employment.
Impatient with his son's seemingly perpetual "childhood friend" status with Jenny, Xun Ran's dad warns him that if he doesn't make a move soon he might lose Jenny to another man. Sighing, Xun Ran tells his dad that while Jenny sees him as a good friend but he hasn't seen any signs that she sees him as a man.
Surprised to get a sudden call from Simon (whom unbeknownst to Jenny has just be laughed at by his best friend for getting turned down by her) telling her to come to his house to get a bunch of fireworks from his house, Jenny shows up somewhat hesitantly with her little sister.
Plot aside, Love Me, If You Dare is just so darn beautiful to look at! (A reader commented that it looks like a movie and it really does!) Albeit the show does get a bit cheesy with its liberal use of elements from other shows/movies but they are so brazen about it that it simply makes my geek side happy.
At this point of the story there is still a lot we don't know about the two leads. I love the fact that our heroine seems to be just as much of a mystery as our hero. More than once Simon has hinted that Jenny has something in her past that is casting a big shadow in her life despite her seemingly normal background. That makes me wonder if Jenny's superb observance skilled was learned more out of necessity than just purely by talent.
The one thing that is surprising about Simon so far is that rather than the cold distant hero I had expected him to be he is actually turning out to be quite charming and honest ...when he wants to be. All in all, I am really satisfied with Simon's character at this point of the story because he totally fits the fantasy of an eccentric brilliant criminal profiler who is just charming enough to intrigue you but odd enough that you keep wondering if it would be wiser to just stay away.
