It’s the start of the 7th week of this drama which only means one thing… We’re nearing towards the end already. Who’s joining us in London for this episode?
Such a cheesy line but since it was Dao Ming Si who said it, it wouldn’t really make you cringe *sighs*.
He told her that Shancai’s the only girl he knows who has the liveliest expressions when eating. Definitely not his mom, Zhuang jie, or Jing. She told him that they would always eat on such a long table that it would be difficult to see each other’s expressions.
She told him that the ideal setting when eating would be like in a Chongqing hot pot. When they were making this plan, I was already thinking of the worst scenario that this might actually never happen because I could already feel the storm slowly breezing through…
And yup, I was right! The storm has already poured down a small amount of showers. Dao Ming Si could not use his mobile app to pay for their food and he realized that it was all because of his mom’s doing.
I felt like a proud momma of Shancai when she was saying that this time, she is not going to step back. She will start fighting for Dao Ming Si and their future together! This is my favorite version of Shancai, and not the type to be a martyr in love.
Another date at the arcade! I love how this is one of their go-to date places.
Shancai asked Dao Ming Si if she should prepare lunch for him. This also happened in the 2001 version too with the same lines. See our Twitter for more parallels from the 2001 and 2018 version *shamelessly plugging*.
I can do it, I can do it!
Apparently, there are people aka your bodyguards…
Shancai told him that she can just kiss him next time. He said this cryptic line to prime us of where this story is going to take us…
His line seemed to work and she kissed him right away much to his delight. Look at that charming smile!
Right after kissing, these two lovebirds tapped their bracelets. Of course, you would be thinking of each other!
Just like in the 2001 drama, Dao Ming Si knew that his mom’s bodyguards have been following him around.
He dialed Lei’s number so that him and F3 could know where he’s going to be. It may be such a small detail but I loved how Lei was the one he chose to contact. He really is his best friend *sighs*.
F3 set an emergency meeting with Shancai to update her about Dao Ming Si’s whereabouts.
Like what he told you, “Sometimes there are no next times”…
She said that Dao Ming Si did so much for her which included protecting and loving her. This time, she said that she’s not just going to wait for him. So she will be following him all the way to London. Thank you for realizing these things, Shancai. It’s about time!
Look at Lei acting like a mom to Shancai saying things like “don’t lose your passport, wallet, bag, yourself, etc.” haha! That’s my boy.
2001 Shancai’s mom meets 2018 Shancai! This was the highlight of this episode, to be honest… HAHA! I won’t be saying much for their scenes together because they’re pretty much self-explanatory. This also happened with the ultimate goal of making the 2001 fans nostalgic and happy.
Didn’t you just enjoy these scenes? 😀 They were pretty longer and funnier compared to 2001 Shancai’s mom’s (Ms. Yue) scenes with 2018 Dao Ming Si back in episode 11.
It melted my heart when Shancai said this. It’s kind of true actually… So sorry if I have offended you, Shancai lol
Ms. Yue asked her why she was in London. Shancai told her that she was looking for his boyfriend. Ms. Yue then told her that her boyfriend must be really nice. Unbeknownst to them, they actually both know who this boyfriend is.
Look who’s here! It’s Thomas from episode 7. The pianist whom Shancai allegedly had a “scandal” with. He remains to be a good friend of Shancai and told her that he will help her look for Dao Ming Si.
One of the first things that happened to Shancai when she got to London was having her valuables stolen by thieves pretending to be nice street performers. They got her wallet, phone, and bracelet (omg I need this bracelet to come back please). Such an unfortunate incident for her but I still think that she somehow got lucky because those thieves are actually Thomas’ friends. They might have sold her valuables but at least she knows who the thieves are now and she is even going to live with them. HAHA!
Lei’s concerned that he could not contact Shancai. While Meizuo and Ximen think that she has probably found Ah Si already and that he felt so touched that she followed him there.
Here they are reenacting how their reunion could be like. I love it when they do this even back in the 2001 version. Such silly boys!
Lei thinks otherwise. This boy amazingly has a woman’s intuition. I think his next steps are going to be quite predictable for now.
In a nutshell,
- I would rather stay here in Shanghai. Thank you very much.
- When Dao Ming Si said, “Sometimes, there are no next times”, I just knew that something bad’s already coming.
- With only a week left before this drama ends, I still think this episode was pretty uneventful. I know I will be eating my words because there will be more drama in the next episodes. If that’s the case, my dramasochistic self is still ready despite hesitating to go to London at first haha!
- I just loved how Wang Yue (actress who played 2001 Shancai’s mom) made a cameo again. Even though I’m forever bummed that not even one of the main cast also made a cameo, I’m still happy that Wang Yue did. Not to mention that her lines are just so funny! It has truly made the original “Meteor Garden” fans like me truly happy and nostalgic.
What are your thoughts on this episode? Are you the same weirdo as me who hates that they’re there in London but want to cry at the same time?
