Within these 5 episodes, the whole series turns into a different mood altogether.
Marcus finds out that Angie has never stopped loving him the whole time. Thanks to Wendy (Connie’s cousin and Marcus’ secretary), Angie and Marcus get trapped on a boat as ‘proof’ of the relationship that exists between the two- in hope Angie’s father will stop the two from going on further. Instead, this led Marcus and Angie to officially begin their affair and Angie’s father actually started encouraging his daughter to win Marcus off Connie since Angie loved him that much. I was a little shocked because I wasn’t expecting her father to say something like that. I mean, what father would encourage their daughter to become the third party in a relationship? One who wants their daughter to be happy…
What was Marcus thinking when he was convincing Angie to stay and not to mention about leaving to England again..what’s the whole point of it? At that moment, it was like he chose to have an affair with Angie while putting the blame on Connie.
Connie encourages Marcus to go on a business trip in Mumbai, India in hope to clear his mind on his priorities and to come back home for the New Years Eve dinner if it was her and their children that he chooses. Marcus ends up thinking through and decides to return home to his family. Unfortunately, terrorist attacks and gun shots started occurring in the building he was at, and in the riot and confusion-Marcus gets kidnapped and put on ransom!!
Connie is so courageous! I loved how she was so brave and went to save Marcus. I was also surprised and moved by Angie and Connie’s bonding and care for one another, and I’m happy that Angie seems to have “woken” up and decide to let go of Marcus because she realized she cannot give Marcus what Connie can. Angie really looked up to Connie for staying so strong and after saving Marcus, Angie decided to withdraw from the love triangle. I really liked Anige for making such a decision 🙂
I’m having a bit of doubt at the moment though because after Marcus has safely returned- Connie and Marcus’ relationship seem to be falling apart. The horrible experience really scarred him- he was humiliated, beaten up and tortured >< causing psychological damage and a huge personality change. Marcus becomes really insecure, non-trusting, bad-tempered and weak- I really felt sorry for him but his personality change made me really dislike him. How could he not learn to treasure and love Connie more? It feels as though Marcus is not happy with the fact he needed his wife to save him..a woman- kinda of thing. Will have to watch more to see but I’m scared he will turn to Angie…
On the other hand, during the time Marcus was kidnapped, Yatming started to scheming to raise to the top and having the greed to replace Marcus. I believe Yatming has already been corrupted by greed. I know he secretly did not want Marcus to return… He’s become so manipulative and I’m started to really hate his character too :< At this moment I cannot see how/why Yatming is turning into who he is, other than out of greed. I was really hoping that the love and warmth Nancy was giving him would move him and convince him into treating everyone like family, but unfortunately it’s not working…To get what he wanted, he even lied and told everyone that Marcus has been killed..arghh…>< What’s more annoying is the only person Marcus trusts is Yatming!! He thinks everyone else around him is betraying him yet Yatming is the one behind all the manipulation!
Just when Marcus considered listening to Connie and see a psychologist , Gallen deliberately “reassures” him that he is fine and that he was not ill, encouraging him to irrationally do what he feels like doing. As a result, Marcus uses a large sum of money to buy the ship he spend time with Angie on. I can feel things will only start to go downhill from here.
Onto other characters- when Joe started proposing to Anita (his several attempts) Anita tried to avoid the question. I thought it was either because of Gallen, or she didn’t really love him- but then Joe’s actions finally moved her. I was happy for her!! 😀 I don’t know if she loved him that much, but for that moment, I was slightly moved too XD
Gallen has also accepted Sharon when he was moved by her. I think I would have been too, considering she was willing to do what she feared for him. However, it was obvious the one he loved was Anita and became quite jealous when he found out the two were going to get engaged!!
Just when Joe and Anita were going to get engaged, Gallen finds out Joe’s ex-girlfriend has returned with their son!
