I love that this episode starts by finding Jason stuck at the bottom of a giant hole; it's just so satisfying and funny but the best part of this opening scene is watching Zhou Zhen's expressions! You could just feel the frustration emanating from Zhou Zhen as he tried to make Fei Li see that throwing a guy in a hole isn't the only way to solve a problem. *heh heh* Oh the trials of being a mob boss' son!
[caption id="attachment_171837" align="alignnone" width="650"] Seriously guys? How many times do I have to tell you, this isn't how we do things anymore!
I don't know about anyone else but I really like that our hero has a dark side, or at least a darker past. Too many heroes out there are almost annoyingly perfect and I like that our hero is anything but perfect. I think Zhou Zhen's dark side makes him more appealing. I mean who hasn't fallen for the bad guy at least once? There's just something about a guy with an edge that instantly makes him more attractive. Right?
This episode gave us more than a glimpse into Zhou Zhen's past; it also gave us a glimpse into his heart. I felt so bad for him when he ran into his ex at the restaurant. He was so obviously flustered by her sudden appearance and yet he tried so hard to make it look like he wasn't. His attempts to wish his ex well were pitiful at best but I give him full marks for trying.
But enough about Zhou Zhen (for now). Does anyone else out there think Liang Xiao Shu is just too cute? She's just so bubbly and energetic and outgoing and fun, I just want to spend a day hanging out with her because I know we'd have a blast! I mean who doesn't want a friend that'll put a happy ketchup face on your smoked egg cake with peanut butter, double cheese and black pepper? (Huh?)

I love that this episode brings us back to baseball. I was so disappointed in episode one when Liang Xiao Shu stepped into the batting cage and made a complete idiot out of herself so I was happy to see that she not only can catch a ball but she actually enjoys baseball as well. It's refreshing to see a girl who can enjoy a sport and not be mistaken for a boy.
[caption id="attachment_171857" align="alignnone" width="585"] I wonder if Liang Xiao Shu and her brother played catch like this. Maybe that's why she enjoys baseball so much?
Of course no drama would be complete without a love rival and I'm happy that the mysterious accountant from episode two is the one to fill those shoes. Gao Zhen Xuan is the perfectly straight-laced opposite of Zhou Zhen who also happens to be Liang Xiao Shu's friend from grade school. I don't know about you but I can see a lot of potential in this particular love triangle and I'm anxious to see where it will go.
[caption id="attachment_171858" align="alignnone" width="585"] Watch out Zhou Zhen! Gao Zhen Xuan is now on the scene!
So what about you? What are your thoughts on episode three? I didn't even get to Liang Xiao Shu's business problems. Do you think Zhou Zhen will step up and help Liang Xiao Shu and thus betray his father? The previews for next week certainly look promising!
