Marry Me or Not took a turn into more serious territory in episode 10 but that didn’t dampen the enjoyment in the least. I appreciate the chance to flesh out other characters more, even one as unlikable as Justin’s self-absorbed mom who can only see slights against her and never her own actions towards others. Justin may not be experienced in love but he’s such a thoughtful perceptive person that I know once he’s decided on Huan Huan he’s not a risk for waffling.
I worry she’ll fold under pressure because deep down she is a really good person who wears her strong female persona like protective armor. Second leads Qian Yao and Sheng Nong continue to be hard to like, not hateful, but his shady ways are wearing thin on me as is her propensity to believe him over her former best friend. I did love the pool scene, complete with sweet kiss, and the OTP’s movie at home date that ended with Justin shedding tears and then getting kabedon-ed on the sofa by his girl. Rawr.
