I’d be lying if I said I was still eagerly anticipating each week’s new episode of Drunken to Love You. It’s not that the drama took a downturn for me, because it didn’t. It remained as cute and swoony as it’s always been for me. But since the conflicts are never any issue between Jie Xiu and Xiao Ru, I’m just not that worried about them, hence I sleep just fine between episodes. However, as the end draws near, I know that I’m going to miss them once it’s all over. Bringing the written preview for episode 16, plus additional spoilers for the next three final episodes.
Written preview for episode 16:
Even though Samantha can see that Xiao Ru is 100% committed to Jie Xiu, but she can also see how much Daniel is fixated on Xiao Ru. Knowing how childish and self-absorbed Jie Xiu can be at times, Samantha doesn’t have faith in his ability to succeed in this complicated love battle. Being the Queen of Ideas, Samantha takes advantage of QQ’s return to Taiwan. Mother and son collaborate and stage a “Trojan Horse to Force a Wedding” plot. It’s touching to see that all of Xiao Ru’s co-workers are on Samantha’s side and await her instructions.
Of course Samantha’s Trojan Horse plot succeeds and Xiao Ru and Jie Xiu successfully complete both an engagement party and celebrate her promotion. Just as Jie Xiu is relieved that he has nothing to worry about and his happiness is right at his fingertips, suddenly Samantha takes a tumble down the stairs. All evidence points to Xiao Ru as the culprit who caused Samantha’s fall!
After emergency surgery, the doctor conveys a dire prognosis. Xiao Ru feels immense guilt while Jie Xiu holds his worry inside and tries to comfort Xiao Ru. The two of them can only wait and continue to be each other’s support. At this time, Daniel refuses to be an interloper and take advantage of the situation. He elects to be Xiao Ru’s white knight and just keep watch over her from a distance.
Xiao Ru doesn’t realize that Jie Xiu’s strength in front of her is just an act, and that he’s truly conflicted and in pain. Just when Xiao Ru is unable to accept this cruel truth, she runs into the famous bread maker Wu Bao Chun, who’s bread gave her immense comfort and inspiration when she was a child. She has a new understanding after hearing his encouragement, leading her to take Daniel’s advice. For Jie Xiu’s sake, Xiao Ru makes a decision…….
Spoilers for the last few episodes:
