People who are shy and gentle can turn snarky when their loved ones are threatened. The same can be said about Gui as he tears Yam a new one for trying to assault his man. These two haven’t confessed, but their emotions are brimming on the surface and ready to explode. Phuri and Kao’s relationship is still in slow progress; however, Phuri’s cold heart seems to be thawing with Kao’s cute antics. Petch and Khim are fast becoming good friends with some much-needed assistance from Perth. As we get done with playing the field with one villain, another one crops up. It seems like Solo and Gui’s relationship will be quite unsteady as it keeps getting bombarded on all sides. There were some inconsistencies in this episode but let’s talk about them later. A lot was happening in this episode, and I’m going to play through it all, as we take a walk down the memory lane!
This review is a joint effort with my dear friend, Jenhg. You can see her thoughts on this episode on her blog. We both have different points of view. I’m hoping that you will enjoy reading her review as much as I do!

Gui arrives on time to save Solo from Yam’s crazy plans and scares the hell out of her. While he takes Solo back home, Kao and Jedi join the convoy, and the friends have a lucid conversation over dinner. Solo and Gui’s relationship is becoming more apparent to their close friends, and Solo’s is not in denial like Gui. We get to see some quiet moments where Gui shares his precious childhood memories. As they are getting closer, Gui’s Junior Kay arrives to unbalance their relationship. Add Solo’s Father to the mix, and the trajectory is complete. As Solo begins to avoid Gui consciously, Kay jumps in the fray top use this opportunity to his benefit. Phuri is slowly getting used to Kao’s presence as our adorable bunny learns more about his fierce man’s temperament. Nasty rumors don’t deter Kao as he promises to always stand by Phuri’s side. As Khim’s situation grows more serious, Petch decides to help her out to get her treatment.
How will Solo and Gui navigate through these problems that keep uprooting the balance of their new yet fragile relationship? Will Phuri slowly be more accepting of Kao’s affections? Will Khim realize that Petch is falling for her? Will Khem act more responsible or get back to his wayward behavior?
While I was dreading about Yam sexually assaulting Solo in his drugged state, Gui arrives on time to save him and scares the hell out of her. This scene is the first time that Petch actually portrayed some emotions. While Supanat is quite consistent with Solo’s behavioral characteristics, Petch sorely seems lacking. They seem to have an unbalanced partnership, and it might take some more time for them to get comfortable so that they can bring this romance to fulfillment. I’m hoping that happens before the Season Finale because they make a handsome pair.
The “Petch-Khim-Perth” love triangle is getting more complicated as Perth diagnoses that Khim suffers from COPD. She needs immediate treatment but refuses the same because she has to take care of her annoying brother. As Petch and Perth search for Khem and then drag him to Khim’s workplace, I’m annoyed by the kid’s carefree attitude. He doesn’t even want to know what is wrong with his sister. Apparently, their parents are dead, and she is his sole living relative. The fact that he easily dismisses her disease is so irritating that I wanted to smack him hard. The poor girl is toiling hard to make ends meet, and all Khem does is play video games. However, I’m glad that after Petch drags him to “Thirsty” and explains Khim’s situation, Khem decides to help his sister finally. The scenario is quite better, and although I’m not a huge fan of Petch and Khim’s unlikely romance, I appreciate their new friendship.
We finally get to know why Solo has been consciously avoiding Gui. It seems Solo’s Father has stationed one of his lackeys to stalk Solo and Gui and report back to him. Dressed up in all black, Solo finally catches up to the guy and scares the hell out of him. I’m guessing his relationship with his Father is not a great one as he calmly threatens the guy to deliver the news back to his Father. I’m already afraid of what will happen in the next episodes; will Solo’s Father bring new problems to the table and try to break them off? While Solo tries to sort out his home issues, will Kay make a move and try to eject Solo out of the equation with Gui? He is quite tricky, and I don’t like the evil glint in his eyes as he plies Gui. Is he really in love with Gui, or is he trying to break their relationship? What is his endgame? Has he been set up as a pawn to destroy Solo and Gui’s romance? I’m hoping to find some answers in the next episode. Keep watching this space for further updates as we bring you more exciting news and features related to this sweet romance!
