Seeing Zi Feng and an innocent looking Ya Nuo again at her son's office, a very flustered Mama Du tries to bring up the subject of Ya Qi (Ya Nuo's made up sister) but ends up get even more muddled when Zi Feng assures her that he only sees Ya Qi as a sister.
Green with jealousy when he sees Na Na tenderly shelling a shrimp for Qing Yang, Zi Feng smiles triumphantly at Na Na when Ya Nuo gets the hint and also peels a shrimp for him. I love Na Na's expression of "Umm...really, we are competing now?!"
Daddy Nan's face was also hilarious.
Her own green eye monster raising it's head when Zi Feng takes her to a "dating spot", Ya Nuo asks "How did you know this place? Did you...come here with someone else?"
Circling around Ya Nuo, Zi Feng decides the safest answer is to simply kiss her.
Holding Ya Nuo's hand, Zi Feng sighs with happiness "I never thought this day would come." Seeing Ya Nuo's puzzlement, Zi Feng explains that Ya Nuo had once accidentally pressed the intercom button and that's how he overheard her assertion to Guang Chao that she will never be more than friends with him. Playfully wincing in pain, Zi Feng complains that since that fateful day, every time the intercom rings his little heart starts to be scared of what hurtful thing he will hear again.
A quick learner, Ya Nuo decides to comfort Zi Feng's pitiful heart with a kiss.
Walking into her office to find Guang Chao smiling like a fool, Ya Nuo is amused when Guang Chao declares excitedly that Zi Han's attitude towards him has changed drastically for the better. Remembering Zi Feng's order that no office romance or intimacy is allowed, Guang Chao asks Ya Nuo with concern if he would have to quit if he and Zi Han start dating. Reminded of Zi Feng's "traumatic experience", Ya Nuo distracts Guang Chao for a moment and presses the intercom button.
Ecstatic and nervous over Daddy Du's first visit home for a meal, Mama Du puts aside her concern for Zi Feng for the time being and focuses on cooking all of her husband's favorite dishes. Moved to tears when Daddy Du exclaims that one of the dish actually tastes familiar, Mama Du thank her husband for allowing her to have a chance to cook for him again.
His heart softening the more he realizes how much his family had struggled and soldiered on while missing him terribly for the last seven years, Daddy Du is finally taking steps to accept his own identity and asks Mama Du "Would you like me to move back home? Tell me honestly."
Looking at Daddy Du with longing in her eyes, Mama Du admits "I do want you to come back. This home will only be whole again when you are here."
His heart racing as Ya Nuo orders him to lay on the bed AND take off his clothes, Zi Feng hesitantly tells Ya Nuo "I think maybe we are moving too fast..."
Impatient, Ya Nuo simply flips Zi Feng on his stomach. Resigned to his fate, Zi Feng smiles and reach for the light switch...
Unsettled, Ya Nuo wonders out loud if Mama Du dislikes her but Zi Feng assures her that his mom is not someone who wound hide her opinion.
Tricked into thinking she is choosing a brides' maid dress for Zi Han to attend a friend's wedding, Mama Du is pleasantly surprised by Daddy Du's unexpected appearance. Tearing up again when she realizes Daddy Du is willing to fulfill her dream of having a 30 year wedding anniversary photo shoot, Mama Du happily agrees to change into the dress Ya Nuo picked out for her.
Taking Ya Nuo's hand in hers, Mama Du replies "It's a family picture and that's exactly why you have to be in it. Because you are a family member as well."
Anyone else's mind is screaming "Calm before the storm!!" Granted, I thought that like 7 episodes ago.
Noting right away that the cuff link could not have been Daddy Du's since he never used such things, Zi Feng makes the brilliant deduction "This cuff link could have something to do with your disappearance."
Na Na's turn!
Ha, just checking if anyone is actually reading this part!
Okay, fine. Na Na gasp in surprise when she walks into her room to find the world's cutest bunny. A bit concerned when the expected screams of happiness didn't come, Daddy Nan nods approvingly when Qing Yang volunteers to go check on Na Na himself.
Sneaking up on an unsuspecting Qing Yang, Na Na gives him a big hug and thank him for taking her causal remark so seriously.
I got to be honest...the showdown between Zi Feng and Han Sheng was a bit of a disappointment. Zi Feng's decision to let Han Sheng go and the billiards ball was cool but still, I guess I was expecting something a bit more. At the end of the day, I am still not sure what stops Han Sheng from just taking Zi Feng out. It sure doesn't seem much would be standing in his way but maybe we need to wait until Daddy Du finally regains his memory to figure why the Du family is suppose to be the top dog.
I was completely surprised that the writer chose to have Mama Du find out about Ya Nuo's romance with her son AND accept her all in one episode. Mama Du's character is just all around awesome so I guess it would be somewhat out of character for her to strongly oppose Ya Nuo for too long but I really thought it would at least take her another episode or two to come around...but I am plenty happy with this twist.
Soooo.... I am still expecting the other shoe to drop anytime now. Zi Feng's constant assertion that he would die for Ya Nuo is kinda making me wonder if the writer is trying to foreshadow something unpleasant in the near future. I am not too worried about either leads dying of course but let's hope we won't have to mess with amnesia.
