Not hiding her intention at all, Vivienne freely admits to Sheng Nan her plan to take everything she cares about from her.
Complaining to her brother of how far Vivienne is going to seek revenge on her, Sheng Nan is somewhat assured when Justin half heartily promises that he hasn't had any contact with Vivienne since the wedding.
Soliciting her mother's help, Vivienne takes Mama Cai to her work so she could place little trinkets that is suppose to bring bad karma on Sheng Nan.
Playing along with Vivienne's game, Justin admits his interest in Vivienne and even agrees to her request that he breaks up with Sheng Nan.
And thus the battle between our two leads begins!
Making up her mind to make a run for it, Vivienne's escape route is suddenly cut off when Justin comes out in a robe and wonders why she is still all dressed. Gritting her teeth, Vivienne decides to just bet everything and takes off her dress right in front of Justin. Completely stunned, a flustered Justin turns his head and covers Vivienne with a robe.
1st Scrimmage: Vivinne 1 - Justin 0
no holding back for them anymore.
Her fighting spirit in full force, Vivienne slowly backs Justin to the corner as she uses her sexy charm to tell Justin that she wants to take things slow because she is afraid he would think of her as an easy woman. Unable to form a coherent thought after Vivienne's almost kiss, Justin could only watch hopelessly as Vivienne triumphantly gets out of the tub.
No where nearly as cool as she appeared in front of Justin, Vivienne leans against the door and exclaims "Scared me to death!"
Second Scrimmage: Vivienne 2- Justin 0
Hiding until Justin drives off, Vivienne happily starts her walk home. Unbeknownst to Vivienne, Justin is actually parked not too far away and is watching her with a thoughtful expression.
In a flash back, we see that Justin's friend has actually suggested to him that Vivienne would be the perfect fake girlfriend for him since there is no way Mama Hao would approve of Vivienne and it would be just the way to get Mama Hao to stop forcing him to go on marriage meets.
True to his friend's prediction, in a conversation with Justin, Mama Hao vehemently tells her son that she would never accept someone like Vivienne as her daughter in law. In fact, Mama Hao stresses that she would rather Justin remain single if he was going to marry someone like Vivienne. His eyes bright with excitement, Justin listens to Mama Hao's lecture with eagerness.
Falling asleep while thinking of each other, our two leads slowly wakes up the next morning feeling each other's presence.
Sitting upright in bed, Vivienne looks at Justin's coat in her hand while Justin holds a hand to his chest as they both wonder at the strange feeling within them.
What a hilarious episode. I certainly enjoyed our two leads' battle of wits... or is it more accurate to say a battle of calling each other bluff.
It is so intriguing to me that I personally find Vivienne's character quite likable. Based on how petty Vivienne is one would think she would be a hard heroine to cheer for but I think the writer has been very skillful in showing Vivienne's vulnerable side and that makes her character that much more personable.
I was pretty surprised that our hero would find out Vivienne's revenge plan so early on... but I like it! Now that both of our leads are playing the game on an even playing field then they could fall in love with their eyes wide open.
