(This is what sheer perfection looks like)

The episode as a whole was excellent - Maru makes a formidable enemy, Team Jae Hee suffered some delicious defeats, and that final scene! But I am afraid all my energy and spazzing went into the sequence near the beginning, when she is overwhelmed by some memories coming back/forgets other things and freaks out. And he is there for her - he is there for her as she doesn't recognize him, as she smashes up the room and their photos together. He holds her as she lashes out, as if he is trying to absorb her pain into himself, so he would be in pain instead of her (as he tells her in the morning, if her memories of him cause her pain, tp hurt him, to take it out on him). And he holds her in his arms all night. And then the morning sequence, where he keeps bringing her something to drink and she keeps lashing out and breaking the glass and he is so patient and gentle and just keeps bringing it to her again and again without a cross word, and tells her to hurt him if she hurts (as I mentioned above). And fixes her hurt hand and is just...oh my God, how much does he love her? And then he has to hear her sob-scream as if her heart is being crushed and is it a coincidence he has his attack then, almost sympathetically? I think not. And when, after it all, she comes down, there is nothing but utter love in his eyes. Take me, drama, I am yours!

This episode was so so good. I've been impressed by LKH throughout the drama. She's improved upon some of the issues of her previous works. Side characters actually add something to the story and are interesting! And the story is still going strong past the halfway mark!

I love how fiercely protective MR is over EG. He's finally showing her the love that she deserves. I just hope that they can get their happy ending. It's so unlikely that they will but they've been through so much. I don't think I could take them dying or suffering too much longer.

With LKH you never know about the ending. I am still scarred by A Love to Kill.

Me too. That was just so unnecessary and painful. MISA was pretty bad too because all the poor guy did was suffer through the whole drama.

So. GOOD! Isn't it? I really love that the amnesia trope here is something altogether new. It's not mere amnesia but an evolving brain damage, one that could get better or worse, with no promise of consistency. At the end of 13, I thought Eunki was going to have recovered her memory, except to blot out her memories with Maru. That Maru would be the one left out. But this was much more organic than that.

And I love, love, love the acting by Song Joong Ki and Moon Chae Won. They're really letting it rip, especially Moon Chae Won.

This drama takes all these worn tropes and turns them fresh, I am in love.

And yes, the leads are amazing.

Thank goodness the amnesia didn't pull a Hana Yori Dango and only blot out Maru - and did anyone else notice, they're both in white in that scene? Finally, they're both at their most vulnerable and actually saying what they feel, and Maru gets to ditch the black and grey - sure, the symbolism is a touch obvious, but I like what the costume designers are doing here.

And again with Eun-ki getting back to her old self and facing the consequences of her unintended fuckups no matter what (last time she gave up personal property to keep the labour unions in line, this time she's willing to lay it all on the line and tell old man Nam the truth about her amnesia), I really like it.

I would legit love it if this drama had a happy ending, but I'm too scared to hope and also don't totally mind the idea of Cute Lawyer and Eun-ki maybe ending up together. And WHY is Maru not getting that damn hematoma checked out already?!

I think he is too busy caring for EG to get the hematoma taken care of. argh!

This drama is simply the best... I'm still sobbing... can't hold back my feeling towards these two... T-T

I don't understand those people who thought ep. 14 was boring... it was perfect, so perfect!

People didn't like 14? It was the best ep ever!

Yes, there were people writing that they didn't like ep. 14 because it's boring and they would stop watching NG - and return after it's done airing. *sigh* I don't get it!

I really started to like this Drama even when I did not wanted since I think no one beside GE (maybe) will survive. But it is so adorable.
Maru loves to fall for helpless women.

I've reached a point where if I don't see some happy ending for them (though the journey will matter as much), where they're both healed and whole, I will go into a deep, deep post-drama depression that's going to last for some time. I'm already feeling the edges...

And I know how "small" my dreams are, when one of the things I desperately need to see is for him to get some sleep, some proper sleep. Sleep that doesn't involve nightmares, with Eun-Gi by his side. I don't know how much more I can take of his suffering in silence alone.

That's true - I want them rested and happy. Both of them.

I LOVE THIS SHOW - and I'm not even watching it. Just getting the feely feels from gifs and recaps. Hurts SO good, baby.

Need to know the death count before I make any further commitment.

I loved these episodes. They really showed just how much MR loves EG. How delusional JH is. And how far MR is willing to go. Plus, I always love EG and how honest she is.

I have a bad feeling that the drama could end with MR dead and EG not remembering him at all.

I would love the irony of that ending, actually. Yes, I know, evil.
