At the hospital, it was a miracle that Xi Le walked away from the accident in fairly good shape. And now, it’s even a bigger miracle that Bai Ming Li is actually, well, still alive! She wakes up and FINALLY tells Ping An and Xi Le the truth.
Xi Le just can’t accept it, while Ping An is hesitant at first. But once Bai Ming Li calls her daughter ‘Mi Bao’ (the name her dad called her when she was little?), Ping An knew Bai Ming Li is her real mother. Right after Ping An calls her ‘mother’, Bai Ming Li falls into unconsciousness.
Seriously, I thought right here that Bai Ming Li is gone, but no – the doctors actually revived her but she’s in a coma.
Outside, Ye Chen tries to comfort Ping An and she hits him for knowing all along but never told her. Of course she’s not mad at him per se… she just needed to release her emotions.
Xi Le is in shock, wondering who she really is,..
Zi Wen: As long as I’m here, you’ll always be Bai Xi Le.
Hrm… I think that’s the direction he’s going. Even if Xi Le is not the real daughter, Zi Wen will try to find a way to conceal the truth…?
Zi Wen convinces Xi Le to go home and rest first, since she sustained some minor injuries. (She broke her hand? That’s it?) At home, he tells her he’s not all that surprised Bai Ming Li would do this, since she’s a cruel and cold hearted person who will do anything to get what she wants. Initially Xi Le won’t hear a word of it, but as she thinks things through, she begins to feel the hurt caused by Bai Ming Li pretty much using her to protect Ping An.
This feeling is escalated when she finds a parcel delivered for Bai Ming Li. It was a second wedding gown Bai Ming Li ordered for PIng An. Puzzled, Xi Le rushes into Bai Ming Li’s room to find a letter to Ping An, expressing how much she loved her and how that practice walk down the aisle was enough… Xi Le breaks down, wondering how Bai Ming Li can do this to her. She was just the fake daughter Bai Ming Li used to ‘take the fall’ if anyone hurts her daughter.
Ping An stayed at the hospital with Ye Chen just in case Bai Ming Li wakes up. He tries to encourage her not to give up hope and just generally ‘being there’ like he said he would all those episodes ago. But of course that’s not it, while Ping An is asleep he texts Detective Hsu (remember him?) to get an update on what really caused the car accident.
Zi Wen sneaks back into Bai Ming Li’s room to pretty much gloat at his ‘success’. But it just shows how pathetic he has become. He’s about to remove her oxygen mask but decides against it because that means she would die ‘too easily’. He wants her to know who was behind everything and to be sorry for what she did. He wants Bai Ming Li to see her real daughter get nothing while the fake daughter / him takeover the shopping centre… this guy is going to go crazy soon surely…
Since the doctors are unsure when Bai Ming Li will regain consciousness, the shareholders hold a meeting to appoint an interim CEO. Zi Wen helps DIrector Ji gain this position for now. Li Sha wonders if Zi Wen can be trusted, but Director Ji thinks even if Zi Wen gets Xi Le’s shares, he still has the upper hand. Plus there’re rumours flying about whether Xi Le is the real daughter anyway, so he thinks Zi Wen might be placing his bets on nothing…
All this time Huo Ying looks rather sombre… he’s probably the only person in the Ji family who is sad about Bai Ming Li’s condition.
Xi Le is still living in an illusion because when she arrives at the hospital to find Ping An there, she tells Ping An to go away… Ping An of course is heartbroken.
Blackie boldly turns up at Zi Wen’s office demanding his share of the money. Zi Wen is alarmed of course, and tells him he can’t get anything since Bai Ming Li is still alive. Plus Xi Le almost got killed and if Blackie killed Xi Le, then he would end up with nothing.
So Blackie decides he wants to speed things up by going to the hospital and try to kill Bai Ming Li. Ping An arrives in time and scares him off. As she chases him to the car park he threatens to harm her… but of course who else would arrive to save her? I love that cheeky smile Ping An has when she sees Ye Chen… Ye Chen punches Blackie in the nose and as Blackie runs away, he drops his phone. Ye Chen picks it up and recognises the number Blackie had been calling… he rushes off.
When Ping An returns to Bai Ming Li’s room she is actually awake. Wow this woman has a strong will to live! While they say their goodbyes Bai Ming Li wants Ping An to look after Xi Le, because she owes her. Xi Le overhears their conversation…
Bai Ming Li: Mum believes you, you’re a brave child. Even if mum is not by your side, you will not be afraid, because you’re my proudest daughter.
As Bai Ming Li drifts away she hallucinates Ping An’s father reaching out to her, singing… eventually her heart rate goes flat…
Ye Chen confronts Zi Wen about what he found. Although everything happened might seem like a coincidence but when added together, he knows something is not right. Zi Wen doesn’t hide it, he admits it was all for revenge. Ye Chen couldn’t accept this, this is not the ‘brother’ he knew from years ago. He shouldn’t have gone to jail for him. Plus Bai Ming Li had been good to him. But Zi Wen pulls out his trump card, he reveals Wei Zhen was killed by Bai Ming Li’s car. Ye Chen goes over the edge and punches him in the face, a few times.
Ping An tells Xi Le the news, but Xi Le just coldly dismisses her, telling Ping An to leave. Xi Le refuse to believe Ping An is Bai Ming Li’s daughter…
Ye Chen arrives home to find Ping An there.
Ping An: My mother is gone, Xi Le is not allowing me to be near her… I can’t do anything, I can’t do anything…
Ye Chen voiceover: Wei Zhen, I promised you I will seek justice for you. But I also promised Ping An I will be by her side. Tell me, what should I do now?
At the lawyer’s office, it’s announced that everything will go to Xi Le. Ye Chen disputes this, but the lawyer can only say this is what was in the envelope. So Ye Chen and Ping An goes to see the doctor who also witnessed the will. Although they can prove Ping An is the real daughter, without the other will (or any other evidence) it will be difficult to make a case.
Ping An thinks this may be for the best, since she wouldn’t know what to do with the shopping centre anyway. Even though XI Le has changed, Ping An is still willing to give up everything for her.
Ye Chen meets with Detective Hsu at Wei Zhen’s grave. The detective looked up police records about Wei Zhen’s accident. Although there was something wrong with Bai Ming Li’s car, a witness saw Wei Zhen running in front of it. The detective asks for the information Ye Chen promised, but he just says it was only an excuse for the detective to help him. In reality, Ye Chen wants to give Zi Wen another chance, because he sees the bunch of flowers Zi Wen brought for Wei Zhen. Inside the bunch of flowers he finds a card…?
Ping An goes to the mansion to see Xi Le. Xi Le just coldly drops the box with the second wedding gown on the floor…
*END OF EPISODE*
Gosh episode 11 was packed with emotions, now that the inevitable has happened it looks like the last two episodes will focus on Xi Le, and how she will turn into another Bai Ming Li? From the preview, Zi Wen will also tell Xi Le he’s been using her? (Why?) Ye Chen will try to convince Ping An she’s the only one who can ‘save’ Xi Le? Li Sha will switch alliances and help Ping An get back her shares? (As if? It’s got to be a ploy for the Ji family to take advantage of everything…) So is Huo Ying going to do anything for the rest of the series? Why did Ping An’s nose bled in the last ep? Argh, I have so many questions and so limited time left to answer all of them!
With all this I’m actually more concerned about the truth behind Wei Zhen’s death. Why did she run in front of the car?
(Just looked at the ratings this week – gosh how can this series be consistently… number 3? Behind King Flower and Fabulous Boys? It’s even dropped from last week. OK granted it’s not really an episode to watch on Mothers’ Day but still, argghhh…)
