So, no surprise to anyone that this week's eps of Nice Guy were excellent.



The end of ep 15 and the scene is so tender and hopeful and romantic:




















The scene at the end of ep 16, which breaks my heart:


























I really do think Maru knows Eun Gi has remembered everything and is willingly offering himself up for the knife (so to speak). And that is what makes that last kiss so heartbreaking - he knows it's good bye, he knows it doesn't mean what Eun Gi ostensibly means, and he still kisses her with all his heart and soul, he is still utterly vulnerable and open. If she wanted him to carve his heart out of his chest, he would do it, to expiate and because he loves her and because he doesn't expect anything good in life. Oh Maru, I really hope he has a chance for a fresh start at the end, hope and happiness. I've seen people wonder if he will lose his memories at the end (that surgery he keeps postponing has a chance of that) and I might be the only one rooting for that - he really needs a clean slate, without the burden of his past and his guilt. And if that is the only way to get it, so be it.

Ep 22 of Five Fingers was delicious.....



Not much shipping by now due to all the revenge, so I'l take what I can get. Mmmm, Ji Ho to the rescue!


















I have to say, if JH had any tiny sliver of reluctance at destroying his family, that incident ended it. When he was in YR's room and staring at her, I was totally freaked out. (Does nobody in that house lock their doors, btw?) And then the way he orchestrated YR's public confession he is a murderess and his face!!! He is terrifying now. Since I am pretty sure he is YR's sun, this is all so tragic and Yoo Manse should burn in hell.

I was probably ruined by too many 'and then they woke up from the dream/forgot about all their adventures/went to the land of the undying' endings as a child to appreciate amnesia as a way to jump-start your life again. I know Maru suffered a lot and would probably be unburdened by losing all his memories, but going through what JH did to him and what he and EG did to each other was a crucible that shaped a lot of who he is today, and for better or worse, I feel like deleting that would be to diminish who Maru is as a person.

This is classic YMMV, right?

Therapy, though. Lots of therapy would definitely be in order. (FOR EVERYBODY!)

They could keep therapists happy forever.

Yeah, I honestly think Maru (and EG) would be better off without memories.
