As Susanna is getting beaten up on the ground, Kwok Keung rushes in to stop them! Kwok Lun had previously owed him a favour, so he requests him to set Susanna free in exchange. I thought it was very manly of him for pushing the guard away from her 🙂 You can see how much love and concern he has for her, amplified after realising she had his child!! *squeals like a fan girl* >.<; He owes her too much, and I can’t begin to imagine how much regret and remorse he feels for “neglecting” her. Thankfully, this episode contains quite a few happy moments for the two which I really enjoyed watching. Finally the truth is out! Oh.. how long have I waited for this moment 😀
Kwok Keung saves Susanna
Meanwhile, Kwok Lun is extremely impatient by the lack of news on Charmaine’s disappearance. He highly suspects she has already left the Palace and asks Moses for permission to search outside. Moses disagrees with his thinking, saying it’s no easy task for a servant to leave the Palace grounds. Kwok Lun pretty much hit the nail by saying he suspects Kevin has run away with her, which makes escaping highly probable. (haha, Kwok Lun is still persistent they’re having an affair) Just when Moses was left in a pinch, Kevin returns to the Palace! What a relief! Kwok Lun is obviously very confused, hahaa..but what came next was even more of a shocker!
Charmaine is soon discovered in the Palace, who apparently had fallen into a well for several days unconscious. Kwok Lun raises an eye-brow over her story but with Mary backing her up, he has nothing to say XD His lost facial expression was very amusing!
They are all back in square one with Charmaine’s marriage to the Prince to resume. It turns out the two came back for Moses because they felt it was wrong for them to leave him behind with all the mess. In a sense, it feels like the whole ordeal was such a waste of time. Was there any point of them running away to begin with…? Well, not really, except for some fan service and love making XD XD I’m probably a bit too skeptical on this part, but I can’t help but think the story writers made them leave just so the audience gets to see them intimate; seeing as they would never do that within the Palace, lol. Otherwise they just wanted a way to get Charmaine pregnant for story purposes, and didn”t want her breaking palace rules since Charmaine is so pure and good- (yet they secretly married.. Great).</rant>
Charmaine and Kevin return to the Palace
Kevin and Charmaine tell Moses they have a plan to make the Prince not want to marry her. There is a particular substance which once applied to the face will cause allergic reactions to the skin, causing it to dissolve and swell. This would make Charmaine unattractive, and so would his desire to marry her. I thought this was pretty smart move until it turns out the damage is PERMANENT. What the hecccckkk? Why are their ideas getting worse and worse? The characters are usually so smart, yet this time they go to so many extremes. FAIL. EPIC FAIL. Moses soon realises this and stops Charmaine just in time. I know Kevin and Charmaine love each other very much, and it’s very romantic for him to say this, but come on.. Kevin is joking when he tells her “I love you for your kindness, your personality, not your outer beauty.” LIES! LIES! XD We saw from the moment they met he was always staring at her face. This is slightly random, but I’m sure Charmaine’s success in the Palace also had A LOT to do with her having a pretty face as well as her personality. Don’t try to convince us it would have been the same if Charmaine was dead ugly. No one would even give her any attention.
Seeing as Charmaine would go to such lengths, Moses comes up with his own plan…
Charmaine performs a seductive dance for the Prince wearing very little clothing (Kevin is unimpressed by the Prince drooling all over her, ehehee XD). The Prince is very amused until a large black mark is revealed on her arm, which makes him feel very uneasy. The more he looks at it, the more dizzy he feels and it just happens that Charmaine is waving her arms left and right intentionally.
Charmaine performs for the Prince
When asked about the mark on her arm, she tells him it’s a birth mark, which started off small but slowly expanded as the years went by. He becomes quite terrified, as to him its represents fire and darkness. He sees it as a bad omen and should he take her as his wife, she would bring misfortune to his Country and people. He regretfully declines the marriage and returns back to his county.
Yay, Moses’s plan had worked! The concept sounds quite simple it makes you wonder why no one had thought of it earlier. Charmaine doesn’t have much loss, just a permanent tattoo on her arm (which is covered all the time anyway XD) By the way, did anyone find Charmaine looking quite ugly in this scene? It must the hair-do or something..she just looks so trashy..
Elsewhere, Kwok Keung sees Vin on the streets and watches him from afar. There are some sadness in his eyes knowing he is his son he neglected all these years. We can assume that Susanna has already told him Vin is their child (damn, I actually wanted to watch Susanna and Kwok Keung interact after he saved her.. you know, about him apologising or asking her about their son. What a shame it’s not shown!) Kwok Keung soon approaches him with a smile but Vin totally freaks out and is scared of him XD Who wouldn’t though? The last time they met he wanted to report him for assaulting Susanna. Kwok Keung however has a bright cheerful face and drags him to have lunch together. He takes him to a classy restaurant and shouts him all sorts of delicious food. Vin becomes very excited and soon becomes much more relaxed around him 🙂 He takes this opportunity to chat with him, to understand him a bit more. He first asks him if he ever missed his parents and he says “Yes!” This puts a big smile on Kwok Keung’s face until he says “Too bad he died early” LOL! Kwok Keung chokes on his drink but it turns out he was just talking about Ram.. awww. ^^;;
Kwok Keung takes Vin for lunch
Kwok Keung soon recounts his time with Vin to Susanna who is very happy for him- she never got the chance to sit down and eat with him. Kwok Keung intends to do whatever he can to make it up to him, and asks to take Vin as his adopted son! 😀 Kwok Keung, Susanna and Vin catch up like a happy family! I feel soo happy for them, I really hope it lasts! Kwok Keung and Susanna are both very exaggerated with happiness in this scene, anyone would find it suspicious XD. They say a line each and practically leave Vin without a choice, ehehehe ^^ They are both very unnatural which even confuses Vin why they’re so keen. He’s an eunuch, someone who cannot have kids but they assure him their bond is all that matters =)
Kwok Keung adopts Vin as his son
He tells Michelle about it and is a bit suspicious why Kwok Keung is so nice to him. Thankfully, Michelle is back to her good happy self, and helps Kwok Keung say good words 😀 aww…so glad Michelle isn’t bitchy anymore! So likable again!
One night, Moses and Kevin secretly go to a temple and Kwok Keung appears! Things are really heating up with Kwok Lun! I can feel the end is drawing near…
