The story is getting more interesting again!! As things are settling down, I begin not to hate Angie anymore because I am slowly accepting what Connie has said. I mean, I don’t mind her that much. Connie and Marcus’ divorce has become a fact now and as long as I see Connie happy that her children are ok, then that’s all that matters in the end…?
Onto Gallen’s side of the story- his identity is at threat once again when a man from Sabah who has been hunting for them, coincidentally picks up Kenneth’s work ID and realises the position he has gained at the bank! He blackmails Kenneth’s identity for a large sum of money. In hope to keep his mouth shut, Kenneth tries all sorts of ways to gather the money for him.
Without telling Gallen because he did not want him to worry, Kenneth borrows money from Benz. However, the man later realises that Gallen has become the COO of Cosmos Bank and comes back to blackmail for even more! This time Gallen overhears and tells Kenneth not to get involved anymore. Thinking his brother might kill the man (or do something bad to him) to “solve all his problems”, Kenneth sought his own routes to obtain funds..by asking Marcus!!
Gallen ends up simply paying the man and letting him off himself. When he found out Kenneth borrowed money off Marcus, he became so angry at “how dumb” his brother was as this would lead Marcus to becoming suspicious. To cover this up, he and Kenneth play an act in from of Marcus..but Gallen’s reaction just seemed over the top (and more suspicious in my opinion) I don’t think Marcus is that stupid…
On the other hand, things are getting more interesting with Rene and Yatming.
A drunk Rene asks Yatming why he has to be her second brother
In another scene Yatming, (I think, deliberately) let his feelings loose while he was drunk and he starts kissing her! OMG! I feel so sorry for Rene ~ It’s driving her insane~~what he’s doing to her is quite gross (if you think about it from her perspective). She’s trying so hard to control herself from those forbidden feelings, and yet he obviously does not suffer that kind of psychological pain.
I think my perspective of this couple has changed. I no longer like Yatming , hence I do not support this couple anymore. As much as I like what I’m seeing ( those sparks and chemistry between the two), I see Yatming as a scary monster.
Rene was really upset and confused and quickly runs back to Topman. I was relieved that she went back to find him. I think Topman would be happy too.
Rene: Don’t come near me! I’m scared I won’t be able to control myself!
In episode 33, Rene returns the diamond watch Gallen had given her in the early episodes of the series.
To sort out her feelings and to avoid the two men, Rene escapes to Sabah for a holiday.
In order to win Rene back, Topman follows her there. At first, Rene’s like the usual- finding him annoying and telling him to leave her alone. I loved watching the two together 😉 It’s just so much more fresh and pure. It’s funny watching Rene treat Topman that way (as if they’ve never dated lol). It was kind of sad that Rene rejected Topman when he tried proposing to her again and threw the ring in the ocean. However it was like they were destined as Topman was able to find it back XD After going through so much on the island, and Topman getting bitten by a poisonous snake, Topman finally wins Rene’s heart!! Yay!! XD
Back in Hong Kong, Marcus finds out Nancy has given Gallen large sum for investing in a property which he knew Gallen did not actually end up buying. Adding to that, Kenneth finds a speeding fine- the day Gallen went to find Angie’s father who was fishing! However, he accidentally drops it in the lift where Marcus picks it up and Kenneth quickly snatches it back when he gets the chance. Only when visiting Angie’s father’s grave did Marcus realise the date/time/location on the fine matched Angie’s father’s death!
In Episode 34, Gallen’s once again tried to put on an act in front of Marcus to justify Kenneth taking his car. Gallen had a huge reaction- it was so obvious he was hiding something- first borrowing money, then next “stealing the car’ . It’s getting more suspenseful! I was so happy when Anita promised to marry Topman!! Finally! XD I was really happy when Rene told Yatming the one she loves the most is Topman and I was convinced she will stick firmly to her decision this time!
The scene where Kenneth has to leave, and Sharon tries to keep him was so sad to watch. I didn’t want the two just to end like that :< They were both so sad. Clearly he did not want to give up what he has in Hong Kong- Sharon, his job, but he didn’t want to lose his brother even more.
The end of the world for Gallen was drawing near. Not only did he lose Rene to Topman, but Gallen’s identity was at the verge of being revealed when he finds out that the doctor (who knows about Yatming’s left ear being deaf) sent a report to Marcus!! Angie’s father wasn’t dumb afterall 😀
As Marcus and Topman put the pieces of the evidence together of Gallen’s real identity and intentions, it finally occurred to Topman the reason behind Yatming’s behaviour towards Rene!
The contrasting scenes was so scary!! As the two spoke out how scary this person really is, we see Yatming in the dark smoking nearby Rene’s place.. is it too late…?
Out of extreme jealousy, selfishness , lust and greed – Gallen walks into Rene’s room (who is drunk after her engagement party) and rapes her !! OMG! Such a monster!! How could he do this to her!?? He’s despicable- he can just go and DIE!
Poor Rene- she could not face anyone anymore- especially not Topman. Her happiness was all taken away 🙁 The only one she trusted was Connie and went to tell her. When Connie brought Rene back home, Nancy not knowing what was going on went rambling on about how she should be a good wife etc, and Rene blurts out she got raped! Rene runs away, and the shock of the news caused Nancy to become hospitalised.
Topman, Marcus and Connie team up to plan ways to get rid of Gallen as they realise he s a Conartist the whole time. Because of his current director position at Cosmos Bank- they need to deal with him properly or else it would have an adverse affect on the bank’s share prices and reputation and goodwill etc.
Marcus went to confront Kenneth as he knew Kenneth was not like Gallen. He had a good heart and was very innocent. When Marcus forced Kenneth to the wall and told him straight out what Gallen did – including raping Rene, Kenneth angrily went to find Gallen!
After confirming what Marcus had said to him was true, the poor guy did not want his brother to continue his wrongdoings and attempts to point out his criminal behavior to the police. Unfortunately as he was driving away, he loses focus from his injuries when fighting with Gallen and ends up driving off a cliff! Gallen jumps in to save him but with no success. He could not find is body..and witnesses his own brother sink into the sea. I think this is Karma for not trying to save Angie’s father. However, instead of blaming himself for the loss of his brother, he puts the blame on Marcus for becoming between them and swears to take revenge.
Gallen then receives an sms from Rene, telling him she was hiding on a boat. I was so angry when Rene called him!! Out of all people she was hiding from, she wanted to see him? I know she didn’t know but as an audience I can’t help but feel that way. As Gallen grabs onto Rene’s face and ears, Rene realises that he was the man who had raped her!
