Are we in or are we out for two more extra sad episodes? We actually don’t a choice so let’s keep moving. Based on the last few episodes, it was kind of expected, but still, when you see those characters you learn to love be in so much troubles, it hurts.😥 The drama is doing better and better in the ratings, but it is still behind power names like Hua Qian Gu, Diamond Lovers and Ice and Fire of Youth (it is just so hard to compete with Hunan dramas :’D ).
ps; because I am afraid Zhao Liying’s name is going to explode in the cloud tag, I have decided to stop tagging the actors in the recap posts.😛

We start of the episodes with ZS and SN going at Feng Hua to sign the papers: they have booked the conference room for JM. I do wonder how come JM doesn’t have its own conference room though. Anyway, SN signs the papers since ZS wants to give her the credits.
IL gives them a new mission: they have to successfully invite big telecommunications sino world execs for the event.
Hence, we have the quatuor stalking these execs to have a chance to talk to them.
SN’s mom, seen how hard working her daughter is, offers to use SN’s father as a contact to approach these powerful execs (she doesn’t know the father is out of a job and still believes he is working as a VP in a big business). Mother goes to the company and learns the truth: father doesn’t work there anymore since the company went in bankrupty long ago!
SN’s mother goes back home and is super mad. Dad comes back and says today he had a really big client to take care of.
Mother waits for SN to get back home to tell them she knows the truth: he is not working. Mother is super mad and ask father if he ever worked, if he ever got a salary. Father says yes, he cleaned someone’s feet for 60rmb (converted to US, that’s barely 10$). Mother is super sad and says if it is like that, then she will give him 60rmb so he can watch her feet. She is like, we cutted all our other options to come to Shanghai. You were a professor before and now you are cleaning feet. I want to kill myself: leave now! The father tells her to not yell at him like this. Everyday, he is working super hard to find a job: went to all classic places like shops, fast food, etc, but nobody wants him. He really has no option.
Father and SN goes outside. Father says he never thought finding a job in Shanghai could be so hard. SN still believes that her father is the strongest and can still make it. Father can’t go back to sleep at home since wifey is still mad.
Father hence crash at the quatuor’s appartment/condo. Father can’t believe the girls and guys are living together. ZS takes care of the father and sleeps badly because of the snoring.
Next day at work, the interns are getting scold really hard by MSD who thinks the interns are really incompetent (especially the sales ones who had a hard training since the beginning) to get any guests for the event.
ZS went to see another accounting (I think) firm to talk them into hiring SN’s father. A weird show is created to call and welcome the father to come here work as the VP (or another even high rank position).
Father is happy he got a job and prepares a fest for the interns to celebrate.
The interns are working hard to get guests for the big event. ZS easily secure five guests using his contacts (friends who are also really rich). MSD only congrats ZS for his hard work while as the other interns will have to work hard.
They find out that one of the big possible client is having his feet washed at a specific shop everyweek. SN and ZS goes to get hired as interns at that shop so that they can talk with this important person. After cleaning his feet, they were successful at getting his number. Later at work, they got the call: he is going to come to the conference! yeah!
SN’s father is having ‘fun’ as the VP since he is preparing all kind of new regulations/policies for the employees to follow. He also hears that the real boss is sexually abusing his employees (more specifically one girl) and tells him to stop (he wet his suits without doing it on purpose). The real boss of the company is of course unhappy and want to fire the father. ZS disuades him by saying he will pay even more money to the real boss so that they may keep the father.
However, very soon the mother of ZS hears about the news about his son hiring a random dude to seduce a girl. Mother is veryyyy unhappy. ZS’s mom crashes back at her house and see all the interns+dad living at her house. Mom tells ZS to stop spending her money and ressources like this, while as ZS says he likes to do this because this actually makes him feel like he has a family </3
