I hate Marcus and Angie…!! These episodes have a high focus on the affair between the two and it’s making me feel slightly sick.
Finding out Topman has a son, Yatming deliberately tells Marcus and uses Marcus to tell his sister the truth. After refusing to believe Marcus (or much rather in denial), Rene proceeded with their engagement. However, Marcus went to the extreme of bringing the child to the engagement party, totally ruining everything- on such a important day to Rene. Yatming is so evil!!
Marcus’ behaviour on Rene and Topman’s engagement cruise was totally embarrassing >< ..he made a complete fool out of himself and ended it with a sulking “no one understands me ” jumping off the ship and swimming away. He then goes back to find Angie and continues finding his ‘comfort’. Angie changes her mind again and decides to fall back into the trap of being the third party in Marcus and Connie’s relationship. Marcus is really getting on my nerves!! Yes I know he is sick, but he should have just seen the doctor!
It’s such a shame that Topman and Rene’s relationshipjust ended like that. When they almost got back together, Elsa (Topman’s ex-girlfriend) had the accident, falling into a coma where Topman had to bare the responsibility to look after their son Billy during this time. I really feel sorry for Topman because it really wasn’t his fault. It’s unfortunate, just when Rene forgave him. Topman worked really hard for their relationship to work, but Rene could not be with him when he had to carry the burden of his son. Topman however, did not give up and assured Rene he will sort things out and solve the barrier to their relationship.
I was relieved to see Marcus actually did come back and apologise to Rene (and let her draw over his face lol), mending their relationship. It seems like after sleeping with Angie he starts to feel guilty because he knows that somewhere in his conscience- it was wrong. After this, he decides to see a Psychologist.
To be honest the advice given by the psychologist seems a little strange to me lol I know I shouldn’t be questioning a specialist but, is this really the real side of Marcus we see afterwards? One who likes change and to be different? One who likes to be carefree? (kinda irresponsible if you ask me). Has he really been that pressured? It looks like he does recover after seeing the psychologist though as he slowly gains back his confidence. I don’t think his family members understood what kind of treatment he was undergoing, which kind of scared Connie (with the cake throwing etc)
Marcus misunderstood Connie, thinking she has been avoiding seeing the real “weak” him and refusing to accept him for what he has changed into after the incident, looking down at his weak side etc. Marcus thinks Connie does not care about his feelings nor provides him with the love and security he longed for to heal his weak heart (which he finds Angie gives him). Seriously it was so irrational and irresponsible for him to just turn to Angie without letting her explain! This comes to prove that communication is the key to a relationship. I was relieved when Connie and Marcus made up again but I knew it would not last long as Marcus continued his affair with Angie 🙁
Every time Marcus and Connie communicated and got back together I would be relieved and happy for this couple, because I had hoped Marcus would give up on his affair with Angie but it never lasts long enough. It’s like the relationship continuously moves up and down. As the saying goes, ‘paper can’t cover up fire’, Yatming finds out about Marcus and Angie’s affair and deliberately makes Connie go find Marcus during Valentines day to give him a “surprise” while he was ‘working’ at Sabah, where Connie witnesses Marcus and Angie kissing each other-leaving her heartbroken! I don’t think Connie could ever forgive him!!
Wendy deliberately lets Rene see Marcus’ phone bill, which lists a mass amount of sms to Angie. After following Marcus, Rene finds out about their affair as well and attempts to stop them. Little did she know that Connie had already found out..it feels like a repeat of what has happened 10 years ago. In hope Rene does not have to make things bad between her and Marcus, Topman decides to find Nancy and Angie’s father in hope they could help out. Unfortunately Angie’s father stood firmly in siding with his daughter and refuses to come in between them.
Nancy on the other hand, (thanks to Yatming) uses the pressure from the bank and directors and Marcus’ position as CEO, to restrict his power in the bank unless his family issues were resolved, forcing him to get back with Connie if he wanted his career.
Gallen also releases to the media about the affair causing chaos in the family. All of this was part of Gallen’s plans as he hoped to kick his brother off and take control of the company himself!
I thought it was pretty disappointing when Marcus chose Angie over his family and career. I honestly do not think that was a rational decision at all. As a result, the Connie and Marcus end their 13 year marriage with a divorce.
What is WRONG with this guy?? It’s obvious he chose Angie over Connie which is why he chose to have a divorce with Connie. The “oh, I don’t deserve to be your husband anymore because I cheated” just sounds like an excuse so he can “live happily ever after with the woman” he had an affair with. He did not dare ask for forgiveness but correct me if I’m wrong, I don’t think he even apologised!! “I’m having an affair- let’s get a divorce’. Poor Connie didn’t even get a chance to say anything!! It was all so cruel!!
It was comforting to see that the whole family was against Angie and Marcus and sided with Connie..though it seems useless in the end Is Marcus love for Angie THAT strong???
I also thought it was really really selfish of Nancy to keep Connie’s children! What did Connie ever do wrong to deserve losing her husband and children?? 🙁
Kenneth on the the hand wanted Sharon to be happy, and pretty much forced Gallen to announce his relationship with her by giving her balloons declaring his love for her. Gallen was not happy with Kenneth’s actions, but then decided to “use” that to make Rene jealous…
