Quick recap. Thanks to Tian Jing Zhi (Wu Qian) getting into a car accident and her blood brings Xue Ling Qiao (Kim Tae Hwan) back from the dead. Li Yan Zhi (Fu Jia) and Ye Chen are looking into the mystery behind the dorman body but also the recent crimes around Jing Zhi. Chen figures out that Ling Qiao is the dormant body but promised Jing Zhi not to tell anyone. We find out that Shi Guang is Ling Qiao’s enemy and he’s using his blood to keep young. Ling Qiao left a laptop with Dong Dong to decrypt, while he and Jing Zhi go to the woods on a little vacation which is cut short because Xuan Xuan is kidnapped. Everyone figures out that Shi Guang is the one behind everything, and probably the person who kidnapped Xuan Xuan. Also both Yan Zhi and Xuan Xuan have found out that Ling Qiao is 500 years old. On to the last episode.
We’re back in the warehouse where Ling Qiao and Xuan Xuan are talking. Ling Qiao excuses himself for a second and runs away to the abductors, leaving Xuan Xuan speechless. Ling Qiao beats up the abductors once again and places them into a pile before returning to Xuan Xuan. He tells her that the police should be arriving soon. Xuan Xuan apologizes for ruining their farewell trip. He tells her, farewell trip or not, it’s important not to drag things on, because good things must come to an end. Xuan Xuan asks if they really can’t stay together.
Ling Qiao thinks back to their farewell trip when Jing Zhi asks the same thing, and came up with different ways that they could be together. She then tells him that it would be unfair to him, and it’s ok that they won’t be together. Ling Qiao asks if any fish are taking her bait, and she tells him that they aren’t and it’s like even the fish were laughing at her. Ling Qiao catches a fish and puts it in the jar before returning to his position reading and throws a rock. Jing Zhi is so happy that she caught a fish that she claims to want to try and cash a second one.
Yan Zhi and crew arrive and the abductors ask them what took them so long because they are terrified of Ling Qiao. Xuan Xuan hears them arrive and Ling Qiao her that he’ll leave first, and she asks if he’s not coming back with them. He tells her no, and says his goodbye. Ye Calls for Xuan Xuan and they hug each other after Chen makes sure she’s ok.
On the way back, Chen and Xuan Xuan hold hands while she’s explained the plan. She suddenly understands that they meant to fall into the trap and Ling Qiao was to follow the abductors. Yan Zhi tells her that’s what they planed but they hadn’t expected her father to be swapped out. Chen is grateful that Ling Qiao has a higher vantage point then them. Xuan xuan jokes that Ling Qiao was actually more useful than both of them
They bring Xuan Xuan home and she tells her mother that she can stop crying. Xuan Xuan’s mother decides to go lie down to rest. When Xuan xuan comes down, she mentions that Jing Zhi is paying more attention to her lover than her friend because she’s already gone. They all find it really odd that Jing Zhi left before they arrive.
Ling Qiao arrives to Jing Zhi’s home to find her not there, which he pouts about a little because he came to say goodbye. Ling Qiao starts to clean the house, and cooks a meal while he waits for her to arrive. Once he plates the table he gets a call from Lai Bao telling him that if he wants to see Jing Zhi alive again he should come to his location alone.
Ling Qiao arrives to the location and Lai Bao tells him that he arrived quickly, but that’s what true love causes. Ling Qiao asks him where he’s storing Jing Zhi and he shows him a video feed of her, tied to a bed. Ling Qiao asks what he wants, and Lai Bao tells him that it’s obvious. He wants him to go into the freezer and only then he will call someone to release her. Though if it makes Ling Qiao happier he’d be willing to let him see her one more time. Ling Qiao takes a chair that’s leaning against the pillar and sits down. Lai Bao tells him that he guesses he doesn’t care about Jing Zhi’s life.
Ling Qiao tells him that he used his mother’s remains 100 years ago and now, 100 years later, he’s using the same tricks. Lai Bao asks if he remember everything, which Ling Qiao simply nods in response. Lai Bao tells him, him remembering does him no good since he loves Jing Zhi, and if Lai Bao dies, so will Jing Zhi. Ling Qiao tells him not to worry as he will do what he wants. Lai Bao tells him that he finds it funny that he gets brought back to like, and is willing to die for a mere woman, which he stresses that due to his money, and the time on his hands, he could have whichever woman he wants. Ling Qiao tells him that no matter how much time, money, or number of woman he has there will never be a replacement for Jing Zhi. He mentions that a rat who lives in the sewers like himself wouldn’t understand. Lai Bao tells him that the Lai Bao that he once knew and trusted him is gone, as he was killed by him 100+ years ago. Ling Qiao admits defeat and tells Lai Bao that he should live a better life in the future and remember that innocent people are of no threat to him. He simply walks into the freezer and lies down.
Jing Zhi starts waking up and tries to free herself from her ropes but it just makes her chokes herself as there is a rope tied around her neck but that doesn’t stop her from trying.
Lai Bao calls in Professor Li once Ling Qiao enters in his stasis state. He tells the Professor to start withdrawing the blood. Li tells Lai Bao that he will become a dormant body again and once that occurs then he will remove his rubropinaland he will no longer have his ability to regenerate ever again. (I have so many issues with the science… if you want to hear me vent I’ll leave a link to my podcast talking about it at the end) Lai Bao asks if once it’s removed if the give him blood will he regenerate. Professor Li likens it to removing the plants roots and stopping it from being able to obtain water. Lai Bao tells him that he can used Ling Qiao’s blood to save his daughter so long as he transforms him. Professor Li tells him that though he will try that there is a probability that Lai Bao’s body will reject the rubrospinal and it won’t work. Lai Bao gets into Li’s space and tells him so there is a chance it won’t work, which Li confirms. Lai Bao tells him that he’s honest so he believes him, but he also believes that it’s not his time yet. So they start draining Ling Qiao’s blood.
Someone goes to get Jing Zhi who is is feeling an odd sensation that she can’t describe. They pick her up as if she were a ragdoll. She has an internal monologue describing what she’s feeling as if the string that connects her to Ling Qiao has been cut and he’s fly free like a kite. They place her one the floor outside the freezer right before Lai Bao and professor Li leave. Lai Bao tells her that she can’t save Ling Qiao like last time, and it doesn’t matter how much blood she gives him, it won’t come back to life again, then they leave.
Jing Zhi snaps out of her daze with a headache, and she stumbles to her feet. She leans against the freezer door and and see’s Ling Qiao. She runs into the freezer and sees an IV in Ling Qiao’s hand. She tries to wake him to no avail, before clicking that he currently has no blood. She doesn’t want to believe what Lai Bao told her about Ling Qiao being dead. She looks around for something to cut herself with, though there is nothing around. She picks up the IV pole and smashes the window with it and then picks up a piece of glass to cut her hand.She tries to feed him the blood that is dripping out of her hand, but that doesn’t work. So she cuts it again and opens his mouth and lets it drip in. (Come on Jing Zhi, we found out at the end of episode 4 that his enzymes don’t work in the cold.) Jing Zhi starts crying and telling him that he needs to wake up, because he always promised to save her, and he needs to take her away from this place. She cries out telling him that he can’t leave her alone.
Lai Bao asks professor Li how much longer it will take. Professor Li tells him that he’s going to prep the surgery to reduce his likelihood of rejection and should take about 20 minutes, maybe a little longer. Professor Li goes into the operating room alone. A little over an hour late, Lai bao asks the add to see what’s taking so long, and they find Professor Li missing. They run into the back to find that he had also drained out all of the blood. He flips out and starts screaming about killing him, and killing his daughter first. One of his bodyguards comes and tells him that the police have arrived and they need to get out of there.
Jing Zhi had fallen against Ling Qiao in the freezer, and in her dream she hears Ling Qiao telling her to bring him home. She wakes up and suddenly remember about how his enzymes don’t work in the cold. She tells him that she’ll take him home, and they need to get out of the cold. Though at these point she’s not only suffering from hypothermia but also blood lost from he still bleeding hand. She manages to pick him up and get him just outside the freezer, where she tells him that she has no more strength. She starts falling asleep again, with her bloodied hand still on his wrist.
As his body temperature rises Ling Qiao wakes up to see Jing Zhi leaning against the doorway. He looks down to their join, blood soaked, hands and he sits up. He tells Jing Zhi to not fall asleep and tries to wake her. Instead of waking however she slumps over against him. He kisses her forehead and tells her that she did good.
He flashes back to before he came to get Jing Zhi and just after the phone call. Chen tells Yan zhi that he wants to contact Professor Li because he knows his personal email and knows he must be doing this against his will. Yan Zhi tells him that they have nothing to lose. Chen tells him that he;’ worried that his family in America is probably being threatened. Yan Zhi asks for Professor Li’s address and he’ll call his contact in the american police for some help. Xuan Xuan ask her mother what actually happens and she reveals that she got a phone call from Shi Guang telling her that if she gave Jing Zhi to him that he would release her. So she drugged Jing Zhi’s glass of water and some men came to pick her up. Ling Qiao gets the phone call and goes to leave to find Yan Zhi, Chen and Xuan Xuan on the doorstep. They are trying to figure out what to go next and Ling Qiao tells them that he’ll go to save Jing Zhi because Lai Bao’s is his target. Chen tells him to not be reckless, because if he’s calling him out now that means that Professor Li has probably found a way to deal with him. Chen tells him that he’s already emailed the professor and is waiting for the response but he already made a promise in Ling Qiao’s name that if he helps them Ling Qiao will save his daughter with his blood. Ling Qiao tells him that he can’t wait for the response, he decides to go alone and Chen promises to text him when he gets the Professor’s response. Professor Li calls Chen after draining Ling Qiao blood and tells him that he didn’t remove his rubrospinal and he can still be revived. He tells him exactly where they are and where they can find Ling Qiao.
Calamari and backup arrive at the warehouse to find everyone had already vacated the premise and Professor Li hands himself over. Meanwhile, Yan Zhi, Crystal and another team investigates his other residence. While looking around, Yan Zhi tells them that he’s found blood on the back of the sofa, so this is a potential crime scene and they need to find the body.
Lai Bao goes to his boat to find his stash of blood, but finds his compartment empty. Ling Qiao calls to him and ask if this is what he’s looking for. Lai bao turns around shocked and Ling Qiao holds a flashlight on him. He tells Lai bao to take it, and throws the case over to the other couch. Lai Bao pauses for a second before grabbing the case and making a run for it, right off the boat and into the water.
Lai Bao swims over to the dock and opens the case to find all of the blood drained from the vials, leaving him with no more blood. He starts screaming at Ling Qiao to give him his blood back. Ling Qiao pulls him out of the water and throws him to the ground.Lai Bao tells him to kill him because if he doesn’t he will just try and kill him, over and over again until he succeeds. Ling Qiao tells him that it’s a bad thing that he’s run out of time, and now it’s his turn to watch his blood slowly slip away. Lai Bao tells him that right now he’s Shi Guang so if he kills him he will never be able to be with Jing Zhi unless he turns her into something like him. Ling Qiao throws him and then follows up with a kick. Lai Bao starts telling him to kill him when he starts regressing back to being an old man. Ling Qiao walks away with his narration calling Lai Bao this 10 year tragedy. Ling Qiao slips in and visits Jing Zhi as she sleep. His narration is still rolling saying that he thought he had kept to his principles and respected the world. He disturbed the life cycles of many people without permission. Though he had saved Lai Bao to fulfill his promise to his mother, it lead to the slitting of his own throat. Years later, he save Jing Zhi, to whom he owes his life and his love but fundamentally he’s the one who started this cycle of events.
In The end Ling Qiao didn’t kill Lai Bao because revenge meant nothing to him anymore. Jing Zhi run down stairs that next morning to find Ling Qiao there. She runs and hugs him. His narration continues with how he wants Jing Zhi to live a short, quiet life, which is not something that he can give her. Which is his way of saying that he’s leaving her.
We get a brief shot of really old Lai Bao in a hospital bed.
Jing Zhi comes home one day to find Ling Qiao is gone, however he left her his family jade plaque, and deeds to his villa. Ling Qiao wishes for her a peaceful existence. In the public eye Jing Zhi goes on a bunch of dates. Her parents are watching the news when she turns off the TV and tells them to stop, and that she’s fine. Her mother mentions that she can’t be fine because ever since she broke up with Ling Qiao she’s thinks she’s gone insane. Her father tells her that once Jing Zhi thinks it through she will get back together with yan Zhi. She tells them that Ling Qiao has left her with his family plaque and deeds to his villa and she kidnapped his pet so he’ll be back. Her parents are still worried and she run off to meet with Xuan Xuan and Chen for lunch.
Chen explains to them why the blood that Jing Zhi gave Ling Qiao didn’t work at first but worked as soon as he was outside of the freezer. He also mentions that Professor Li is very sorry about what he did, and Jing Zhi sarcastically tells him that now that he’s sorry he doesn’t have to stay in prison anymore. Xuan Xuan asks if she’s still mad at her mother because she’s also apologetic. Jing Zhi tells her that had he father been under duress he would have served Xuan Xuan up without a second thought. So that’s different. Xuan Xuan asks her if she should really be eating that much. Jing Zhi tells her that she wouldn’t understand but when someone breaks up they eat their feelings. Xuan Xuan tells her that rather than eating her feelings she’s eating like a pregnant woman.
Jing Zhi excuses herself to the bathroom. While she’s in there she cuts her hand on the corner of the shelf and it heals right away. Then we pan to Ling Qiao who places his hand over his heart. And…. THAT IT! The end Goodbye.
I kid I kid. I’m not happy about this ending. I go into great detail in my podcast but, after how good this show has been, this almost feels like a cop out ending. Had they ended it at the hug scene or even the scene with her parents I would have said it had a nice open ending. This ending some might like the ending (and please if you do leave a comment telling me why so that people get something other than my opinion on the matter), but personally it wasn’t for me. I’m going to write up a quick review like I always do for my dramas but this is the end of the spoiler filled portion of my blog. Thank you guys so much for reading my 1500 – 3000 word recaps. It’s been a pleasure. And I’ll see you in the next post. BYE!
