ZS’s mom and ZS are yelling at each other with ZS’s mom thinking he should not have let strangers in the house. Turns out the house was bought by mom and dad so they could live together as a trio. There are too many memories in the house. ZS is touched his mother still thinks of his father. ZS asks his mother when were she when he was sad, thinking he never got enough mother love. Mom decides to cut all financial support to ZS.
At night, the electricity in the house was cut. When SN was washing the dishes, ZS says he just wants to hug her to be fine and hugs her from behind (cute!). At night, SN was unable to sleep well as she thinks about ZS.
The next day, ZS realizes all his credits card were cut: he lends his sports car to a friend in exchange for money. As for SN’s father, he went to his company and creates a new scene. The real boss there gets real mad and decides to fire him. As ZS calls him to dissuade him from the firing spirit, SN hears everything. At work, the father is officially fired as he learns the truth. Mad and frustrated at himself, he vagabonds around town before going home to talk with SN’s mother.
The day of the big event for the company, ZS’s mom and JM’s president are face to face. JM’s president tells the truth: as Feng Hua is going to be merged into JM very soon, there is no point for the two companies to collaborate anymore. Mom learns that everyone lied to her, even her own assistant and as some level, her own son who helped organizing the event. Mother leaves the place as dignily as she can. ZS after learing the truth wants to go see mom’s assistant to take revenge. 😥 sooooo sad.
At that moment, ZS’s mom calls and says she doesn’t blame him. ZS wants to talk and explain and apologize. Mom’s old assistant gets a VP position at the event. However, with the media, only CEO gets some attention.
At home, the mother/son duo eats together (they prepare dumplings) and plays games until very late, seeming very happy as they were able to forget what happened during the day. ZS falls asleep.
The next morning, we hear the news: mother jumped from the high building and killed herself. ZS is so sad!!! ZS finds the letter mom left him:
I trully loves you. Even if I was not the perfect mom and did not attend all your big life events, It is because I put all her energies into creating Feng Hua, the company of your father. Mom wished to give Feng Hua to you when the company would be at its best shape. However, now, everything is done. I don’t feel mad, only has lots of regrets. If I could do it again, I would have wished to be a normal mom instead. Now, I am just really tired. Let me go join your father and find some comfort with him. When I asked you to become an intern at JM, it is because I wanted to shape you into a better person. Don’t think of taking revenge, just think to live peacefully. Work at the rivals’ company well.
Everyone at Feng Hua is worried for their job. The quatuor has to move out. ZS drinks around town and because he doesn’t have the money to pay for the drinks, gets severly beaten up. ZS is still so mad for being part of the scheme that caused his own mother’s death. Such torture.
Later, when ZXC and SN find ZS, they see him in such a bad spirit that they decided to bring him to a haunted house. At the end, only SN gets reallyyy scared. SN keeps following ZS to all the clubs around. SN gives him the money her father owned at the fake job. ZS accepts the money.
ZS goes to the restaurant to hit on the mother’s ex-assistant and hurts him on the head. Because of this, ZS has to go in jail. SN tries to get him out. At the end, SN goes to see CEO to ask for help. Successfully, the ex-assistant finally accepted under the CEO’s pressure to let ZS out of the jail.
The four friends finally loook happy again as they dance and bike around together. It seems like they are finally able to forget the hardship… for a while!
ZS meets the traitor aka ex-assistant of mom. The assistant tells him that Feng Hua is going to go bankrupt with or without his help, the only thing he did not expect from his move is that ZS’s mom would kill herself. He also tells him he understands traitors will not have a good ending and he himself will resign from his position very soon. ZS says it all makes sense: he will go back work for JM.
GG’s mother is still trying really hard to matchmake her daughter. She even fake illness so that GG could come back home. GG is not happy to see that all the potential husbands are too demanding. She hence hire ZXC to fake being her boyfriend.
At the gym, MSD meets the company’s president who compliments him on his great achievement since he started working for JM. It sounds like someone is going to get a promotion soon! At work, MSD and IL are talking together: they are actually dating together!!! Dun dun dun dun!! Yes, apparently, they are hiding their relationship because of the company’s rules. IL says there is a high chance the boss is just saying he will promote him to make CEO look bad.
To the interns, the MSD has a new big plan: 50 000 TV machins (the thing to record live tv shows) must be sold by the interns. Out of the 18 interns, 2 will be elimitated through this new mission of two weeks. The interns start trying, but on the first day, the sales number is zero.
The interns come up with a plan. Nobody will sell any of the products so, by the end of the day, JM will not be able to fire anyone. It seems like WRH will not respect the pact though. At dinner, the quatuor decides to drink water because they have no money to actually eat a legit meal.
Next day, the team hears the bad news: only WRH was able to sell the quota yesterday. All interns are back to square 1 as they have to sell the machins as fast as they can. Everyone goes outside to yell and learn to ‘love’ the product. They succeed in selling some: approximately two hundreds. It is still so slow and they need to find new ways (try to sell to commerces or find contacts).
GG goes back to her ex-potential husband and tries to sell to him. Although he first refuses, after being yelled at by GG and being touched by her sincere words, he decides to befriend her. He hence buys 1 000 machins! Wouhouu!
At home, SN’s dad gets a call from an old lover and gets caught by mom. Ohoh. Meanwhile, at the dorm, SN is thinking about ZS and believes he is not back to normal.
The next day, the landlord comes to see the interns and tell them they are not allowed to sell products at their place: they hit ZS and ZXC, the two who tried to talk to the landlords. SN wants to take care of ZS, but he doesn’t want to let her. He is frustrated to be hit so hard just for a 300rmb thing. SN tells him that now it is different: the 300rmb value now for him is very important because he does not have his family to back him up anymore. It seems like ZS still wants to show a cool exterior in front of SN, but he can’t… ZS goes to sell his car.
At home, SN’s dad meets his old love and they go to drink. Meanwhile, the interns are trying to sell the machins in the street. They try to wear ultra min skirts and other sexy outfits to attract customers. Of course, they attract pervs. SN’s dad passes by and seeing his daughter there, he runs after the pervs and yells at the girls to stop doing this. If it like this, then they shall not do the internship anymore. SN and the other girls cries and she asks her father to leave them alone: they are too scared to lose their jobs.
Dad invites all the interns to come eat dumplings at home. When mom’s comes back, dad and mom discuess about the whole situation. Father is mad at himself for being unable to help his daughter. Mom is more mature and says that since they are from a modest family, they don’t have a choice, but to let her experience the hardship of life. Later, dad and daughter apologizes to each other. It is all good now!
ZS and SN waits at the bus station together and now, ZS do wonder if SN likes him too. He confesses to ZXC that he truthfully has no time to date now since he has so many things to worry about.
