Frustrated that she doesn't seem to be making any head ways with Peter despite Alice's sudden disappearance for the last 2 months, Shu Lei gets even more angry when Peter keeps stopping random women on the street just because they look like Alice.
Fearful of Alice's safety, Hao Yi tried to talk her out of going back to work, but eventually relents when Alice insists that she needs a chance to reclaim her own memory.
Overjoyed when he finally spots the real Alice, Peter runs to her in excitement. Flustered when a total stranger suddenly fawns all over her, Alice looks at Hao Yi pleadingly for any hints. Displeased when Hao Yi presents himself as Alice's spokesman, Peter looks at Alice with mild puzzlement as she keeps referring to him by his English name.
Not about to give his competition any advantage, Ho Yi strongly warns Alice to stay away from Peter. Confused why such a nice guy would be dangerous to her, Alice begrudgingly agrees once Hai Yi maintains that Peter is someone that would most likely see through their pretense.
In the middle of the chaos the notebook flies out and Hao Yi smiles with satisfaction when Alice's co-works sighs with relief that Alice is really back to herself. Nowhere near as relieved as Hao Yi, Alice's heart is heavy with bewilderment how she has grown up to be such a mean person.
Furious when Peter condescendingly cancels the promotion with a special emphasis that he is only doing it for Alice, Shu Lei takes Alice out for a showdown.
Naively assuming that she is going out on a girls night out with her best friend, Alice sits in a stunned silence as Shu Lei informs her that their friendship has ended 13 years ago and she simply wants them to be strangers.
Looking at a mildly embarrassed Hao Yi after he confesses "I just want to thank you for appearing again in my life like a miracle." Alice replies "I really want to thank you for everything you've done today. Even though all those things were just pretend but I feel like I can truly adjust myself emotionally tomorrow at work to be a 30 year old. You are the one that is my miracle."
Unfortunately, instead of catching the baddie, Hao Yi's clever plan backfires and Alice's amnesia ends up being revealed when she calls out Han Ming's name while looking right past Peter. Ignoring Hao Yi and Shu Lei's surprised expression once they finally connect him to the school nerd, Peter stares at Alice intently and demands "How could you not know Song Han Ming is me? Unless... you are not Alice?"
Left with no choice but to admit her memory loss Alice tries to at least save Hao Yi's position at the company when her boss attempt to kick both of them out. Putting an assuring hand on the agitated Alice, Hao Yi smiles confidently as he watches Director Wang picks up a phone call and ends up relenting once Hao Yi's boss threatens to pull out all of their investment if Hao Yi is not allowed to investigate the whereabouts of Alice's research notes.
At first relieved that Hao Yi seems to have everything in control, Alice gets worried again once she finds out that Hao Yi's boss is also threatening to fire him if he doesn't find her research notes within three months. Assuring Alice that he will find a way somehow, Hao Yi's more immediate concern is to get reacquainted with an old classmate.
Holding out his arms wide to accept any punishment Shu Lei might deal out, Peter freely admits that he got plenty of satisfaction from watching a clueless Shu Lei chasing after him. Wincing when Shu Lei grinds her high heel into his foot, Peter continues in his careless manner "I didn't see any point of revealing my self when you would find out the truth soon anyway. Plus I knew once you know my true identity you would lose interest right away." Huffy, Shu Lei agrees "You are right. How could there be any possibility of me being interested in you once I know you are Song Han Ming!"
Sigh...for Alice's sake I hope she get her friends back but like I said last week I am going to need Shu Lei and Xiao Fen to prove themselves a lot more before I see them as deserving of Alice's friendship.
I am pretty sure the writer will probably have the girls be friends again eventually but I actually don't have a problem if Alice ends up having to learn the lesson that sometimes she just needs to move on from certain people and open her heart to others who would love to have a chance to be her friend.
One of my favorite scene this week was when Alice was so relieved after walking out of the confrontation with her boss that she puts her head on Hao Yi's shoulder. It's intriguing to me why Hao Yi seemed so surprised by it. Hao Yi had been very successful in getting Alice to let down her guard and even becoming her only friend now that her best friends don't want anything to do with her, but at the end of the day our hero is still the uncertain 17 year old boy who is not confident at all if the girl he likes return his feeling as well.
As cute as it is to see our 30 year old hero still acting like a teenager in someways but it is also very frustrating since that same uncertainty was the reason 17 year old Hao Yi lost Alice in the first place so let's hope this time around he can really keep his promise of staying by Alice's side.
By the way, a reader asked last week about a song in the show. I am hoping this is the one she is asking about.
