@valsava: You are so right not only did MH take someone else's word for it he took the word of a child and a torn in half result report that did not show who's results they were. Can we all say dufuss.
Just finished watching with subs. I don't think NR knew YJ was the mistress but that phone call from WC made everything she did know fall into place and even with that fresh knowledge she was the perfect lady. That made it clear that she is no longer invested in WC, she could careless what they do, she just wanted to let YJ know that it is not her holding things up, H'S told her to open the box when she was alone and not let anyone see, can you imagine that WC would not find the box and read the note I can't. When NR was reading the note it was being narrated by the young HS, the second I like you is without a doubt the voice of the adult HS. I don't know if he was there or it meant that NR understood the meaning of the note then and now. WC tearing up the divorce papers should mean nothing because NR and the notary should have a copy.
My favorite scenes 1. When NR got back from her second date and was all excited when telling HS about it and HS kept saying that's normal, that's a given. then asked the big question,NR how have you been living your life, 2. When MS confronts NR about the divorcee and her dying alone and not giving him any credit for being a son. 3. When SY gave her the tape to use against that perverted professor and how she used it to get rid of him. 4. When she danced at the festival and her, WC and HS got caught up in memories of the past. 5. When she woke up in the spa and HS face was so close and her heart started to pound. 6. When she asked WC to divorcee now.
@sonequeen: It's true all three girls arrive around the same time but SW and HS came the same day and OW came a few days after plus only the two girls was born on the same day OW was born a few days later, that's why in an earlier episode the two older girls was teasing her for being younger, Remember the birthday party that CB Gm destroyed was for OW and HS.Don't forget that CB was also born on the same day as the two girls. After the DNA test it should be easy for Gma,MH or DY to find the real daughter especially Gma because she knows without a doubt that their were two baby's since she caused the mix up,
Everytime I see MH and DY be nasty to SW it irk's me to no end because most of the time it's just pettiness on their part, the drama would lose it's punch if they found out its SW so I'm guessing that after SW and SB fall in love and about to marry they will find out the truth and try and stop her without success. KMH turn out the way he did because MH, DY and her father treated him the same way they do SW only he had his nasty mama's genes and got even, I see JH, SW and CB leaving the rest of this clan to stew in their own mess,
Thanks one and all for recaps, screencaps and comments.
@flybabyfly: this is for you.
I love you, You love me We're a happy family With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you Won't you say you love me too I love you, you love me We are friends like friends should be With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you Won't you say you love me too
@be happy: I have to agree with @bebebisous33 I don't think WC is in love with NR either, it' more I don't want you but I also don't want anyone else to have you. His first thoughts were to run to HS house and when she was not there his fear didn't escalate, his thoughts while leaving was why was HS being so worried. His ego is bruised and he can't wrap his head around the idea that NR truly does not give a crap about him. He finds that more disturbing than her being with someone else. Picking up the papers is not a sign of affection I've did as much for a passing stranger. He was angry that MS knew what he didn't after rushing out like a fool trying to catch her with HS. A worried husband would have asked his son first off if he had heard from his mother, called her friends, call the police not run to another man home thinking she would be there, that's jealousy not concern. NR has been a wife who has done nothing but what he wanted her too, a wife that would never consider doing anything that would he would not approve of, a wife whose life was him and her son without any other human contact. The fact that she asked for the divorcee now shocked him because he believed himself to be her world and the idea that he is not disturbs him. What kind of low life would prefer their wife to be crushed by a divorced that they initiated over her consent and willingness to move on. This a man with to much ego, and that's going to cause him to lose both of these women and maybe even his son, and if by some turn of events he really does love her and I'm wrong in my think then more the pity because he should have cherished her and treated her better.
I don't see HR as the bad guy because this was something HJ put in motion. Until the last episodes she never sought SJ they just kept running into each other. Where she is wrong is not telling HJ that they have been meeting and taking the puzzle piece, although she has no idea of the importance of the piece she has no right to take anything from he room without permission. Her falling in love with SJ, is that something she could really control? If we could control who we love most women would never end up with some of A$$ wipes that we do. On the other hand SJ seems to be drawn to HJ the more close contact they have. The puzzle piece for now is making him doubt what he feels. The scene at the hotel where SJ let HR cry on his shoulder made it clear for me that he is not feeling the same as her and he realized it. He is drawn to HJ, now all it will take is for him to see them together. I think that HR did SJ a disservice by setting this in motion, she did because of how she looked and assumed he would judge her. Looks is the main theme of this drama and yet HR has made no attempt to fix herself up, she was getting her hair straighten as a child so there isn't the excuse that she doesn't know. I'm sure that HR has lot's of clothes she no longer wears that she could have for the asking. Makeup would cover up those over rosey cheeks. I know that HJ has a woman's vanity or else she would have never set these events in motion so why is she not using that vanity to improve her shell. I don't the make over when it happens will have that much impact because HJ is not ugly so much as she is a woman who has let herself go. The other interesting thing about HR is she has never been in love before, but she is also not close with any of the men she has dated but with both of the men that surround HJ she has established relationships that she is comfortable in. SH can see the attractive HJ without the trappings,I can't wait to see well all this confusion will lead.
YJ wasn't much of a crocodile, if she had been she would have wacked Min and fired all those old men after insuring they never could never muster enough power to come after her again. If she had taken care of CY and her dad like she promised then she would have never had made her an enemy to worry about YJ and TH should not have ended up together because she had to much blood on her hands and that should have made it impossible for them. After all if you hang out with a murderer you never know when you might get on their bad side. I think would have preferred her to die and TH inherit, find someone to run the company and he take over the hospital. The way it ended suggest's that she lived and that being the case what would change? She would still be in the crocodile swamp only with some different crocodiles.
After reading some of the post here I got a god awful thought, we have forgotten that DY MIL can potentially identify the real daughter and she discovers that DY has the wrong girl pegged as her daughter. Down the road when SW leaves her dad the MIL convinces her son to hire her to work with CB and watch in amusement as DY abuses her for taking what she believes is her daughter's place? I know sick right? The really sad thing about this drama is both DY and MH think the wrong girl is their daughter and the both ill treat SW over petty kids stuff and by the time they learn the truth it may be to late to rectify. When all they had to do was treat her like a human being, and topper will be to lean HS knew the truth all along. In the end JH will be the person she sees as her mom.
I finally found this drama with some subs, the problem with the kids is the mother she caters to the brats but the one workhorse she has she is mostly indifferent to. Is there really a parent in the world that would trust their kid with the tuition money? Why wouldn't she pay it directly to the school? There's no really reason to give it to her. I see the mom turning over the restaurant to the oldest daughter to run and she becomes a live in cook for the rich guy . We know they are going to end up together so I'm thinking it will be through the food. If continues to manage the restaurant nothing will change, the youngest son is doing something criminal so they even in up losing it all together. Who is that other girl living with them? Why is the bride to be family asking them for all this stuff, most drama's I've watched it's always the bride family that get's sent to the poorhouse trying to pay for all the crap the groom's family ask for. The oldest son girlfriend really does like him but she is influenced by her mother. @valsava you are not alone, I just started to watch.
I got so hung up on the store that I went back and reviewed previous episodes and came the the conclusion that the store WC speaks of is NR divorce settlement not her Gma's. NR did not even know that the building her Gma's store was at had been torn down until they did the walk through the old neighborhood. The new store may or may not be a legacy for her but the recipe is for sure. The divorce agreement they have is also a binding legal document and he can't change it without her approval the thing with him is he still has not noticed that NR is not the same she will not so easily submit to his treat's any longer. Her respect and awe of him is gone. When she was on her date and he treated her like someone that mattered the light was slowly dawning , when they were in the park and she was watching how other men were treating their partners along with HS asking her how had she been living her life that such small courtesy impressed he,r that everything she had put up with not once had WC ever treated her like she mattered and she no longer wanted to live that way. That being the case she no longer has a reason to wait for the divorce. Now she wants a different life. WC has not noticed the change in NR he see's her attitude as being rebellious but that at her core she is the same as always, it has never occurred to him that she might want the divorce to go ahead for her own reasons, and I can't wait to see what his reaction is going to be now, what deduction will he make now, how will his ego handle the idea that NR no longer wants him.
I was so pissed last week I thought I would never watch this again, but here I am. HS mother should have no problem finding the girls after all they were the only known survivors plus SW kept her name, Where they went should be a matter of public records. The biggest problem I see for the adults is none of them could be what you could call decent human beings so far with the exception of JH. Someone pointed out that HS takes after her mother because she just left her lying on the ground not even waiting for the father to come out but so did DY. The treatment that SW get's at the hands of her own parents is a little nutty because who would treat a child with such disdain over kid's mess. After the truth comes out t what will they say if she want's nothing to do with them? I'm sure the plane ride was HS and CB coming back from studying overseas. What would really be funny is if SW ends up working for KMH and bringing recognition to the mother's family company. DY will learn the hard way that all the crap she has put up with is not revenge it's just dumb. Her mother and (father?) are dead she could have survived any slurs to their memory and paid it back later.
I just finished reading Dramabeans recap of episode 16 and then read a few of the comments. The thing that stuck out was this idea of YJ having a split personality because of the idyllic time she spent with TH mirrored against her return to her crocodile ways. The other point was the look of maybe revenge on CY's face at the end of the episode. From the moment YJ told us she was a crocodile and then made us believe it the discussions here was how her and TH could be together because we all accepted the truth of her being who she said she was. I will start with CY who would she take revenge against and why? If it's because of DJ she saw with her own eye's the dumb choice he made, all he had to do was leave with her but he chose not to, no one else could be blamed for that. The only thing I see left for YJ and TH is to live their lives separately but take time occasionally to be with each other. As far a s the company goes clean house get rid of all those old croc's and any young ones that are in the swamp. Hell she could start raising sharks. I know that I sound as if I'm excusing YJ for murder but that's not it, yes she takes responsibility because she understood the nature of the people around her and thus was able to guess what would happen and it fitted with her own desires so she did nothing to stop it. In truth her knowledge was just speculation based on what she knew about the people involved. but she herself did not plan nor orchestrate the death of DJ, her having money or not would not be an issue because legally she can not be held accountable.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I haven't seen YJ kill or order anyone to be killed. Did she know president Go was dead yes, but we don't know that she was the one that sent that note the same way we don't know that his son was ever really kidnapped. Also nothing in the note told him to kill himself, that was how he interpreted it. Again was she glad he died, yes. The same applies to DJ, she knew that TH would rescue him, she knew her sec. was a spy and would tell the other side he was escaping and she also knew her brother was stupid enough to think that he could make a deal with SH dad and end up dead as a result, but his death was a result of his own actions not some revenge plan of YJ's. SY was right there with a plane ready to take him to safety but he chose to be a player and paid with his life. Knowing a person's choices will lead to their death is not murder even if you wish for their death's. prez Go could have made a call to verify if his son was really kidnapped he was a plotting and devious man yet at the time he did nothing to see if he had any options. DJ was even worst, he was told that SH dad knew he killed his son but fool that he was he still thought that he could make a deal and paid for that choice with his life. Murder is not a special right of the rich, can they get away with it,in most cases yes because in most cases they don't commit the crime personally. I don't think anyone can know if they can commit murder until they are faced with making that choice. TH would have left YJ even if he did not believe that she would kill her brother, that's why he restored the lavender garden. Since returning to the crocodile pit YJ hasn't given a thought to how they should live, how they can be together without destroying who and what they individually are., she even had him set up in a guest house. The sweet time they spent together was a holiday because she told him from the start that she was a crocodile.
