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 for the now missing body. Jing Zhi and Lin Qiao start living together even though she tries to get rid of him. She is determined to get him out of her house so she agrees to help him track down his enemy so she can go back living her peaceful life. She gets Ling Qiao a job as a taekwondo teacher so that he can make some money, and he got cast in her drama to play the main villain. Zhang Xuan Xuan (Shen Meng Chen) is suspicious of Ling Qiao and asks Li Yan Zhi (Fu Jia) to look into his background. Meanwhile Ling Qiao, Jing Zhi and Feng Dong Dong (Yang Aro) continue attempting to track down Ling Qiao’s enemy, whom they now have proof is alive. However Yan Zhi and Ye Chen are getting closer and closer to the truth behind the dormant body, while Ling Qiao and Jing Zhi’s relationship gets closer.
Yan Zhi and Chen meet to discuss the case when Yan Zhi tracks the car and find out that Jing Zhi’s car was near the villas the morning of the murders. Yan Zhi starts to suspect Ling Qiao right away, and leaves the track to review the GPS transmissions. Yan Zhi looks over the movements of the car and due to Ling Qiao visiting the couple’s old residence, he connects Ling Qiao to the couple.
Ling Qiao goes to the crime scene to look for clues of who could have killed the couple. He looks throughout the house and when he gets to the kitchen he looks into the fridge. When he looks at the counter he notices 2 empty milk bottles, and when he looks in the fridge there are 2 new ones. It looks like someone pretended to be the milkman and then killed the couple, and he assumes that they also took the old photo since it was nowhere to be found in the house.
Ling Qiao returns home to find Jing Zhi watching TV. He inquires about her photoshoot, and she replied that it went well and they managed to finish early. That’s when she notices a different smell and stops him. She sniffs around him and finds that he smells like coffee and caramel, which is odd because he doesn’t like coffee. She smells his hands and finds that they smell like antibacterial cream, which she inquires if he went to the hospital. Ling Qiao confirms that he had gone to have coffee with Ms Kan, the daughter of the victims, as well as the crime scene to look for clues.
Ling Qiao and Jing Zhi sits down with a pot of coffee between them and he tells her about the picture. Jing Zhi is shocked that Liao Boa had an innocent couple murdered over a photo, and she inquires if he is even human. Jing Zhi gets mad and chugs her coffee before angrily putting it down again. She notices that Ling Qiao is holding a cup of coffee up to his nose, and when she mentions that he doesn’t like coffee he tells her it calms him. The doorbell rings and they both know it’s Yan Zhi. Ling Qiao reminds her that she was never at the villas, and he had gone out alone that day. When Jing Zhi opens the door, Yan Zhi and Calamary are standing there, and Yan Zhi told Jing Zhi that they needed to ask Ling Qiao some questions down at the station.
Yang Zhi asks about why he was in the Victory district a few weeks back. Ling Qiao confides to him that he has been looking for an old family relic that went missing 100 years earlier and they still haven’t stopped looking. Since he wanted to buy it back he went to the apartment to talk with the sellers to only find that they had already moved. The auction house and the current residence both collaborate his story. When Yan Zhi asks if he had ever met the couple, Ling Qiao admitted that he hadn’t, and of course Yan Zhi doesn’t believe him.
Yan Zhi tells him that his car was in the same location at the time of the murders. Ling Qiao tells him that he had gone to the Golden Deer to pick up breakfast for his girlfriend, and it was solely a coincidence that he was in that area at 7:30 am that day. He also stresses that if he doesn’t believe him he could go ask his girlfriend. Just before Yan Zhi leaves the room, Jing Qiao states that even though he is a cop, it is still illegal to place a tracking device on someone else’s car. Yan Zhi tells Ling Qiao that though that is correct, the SUV belong to him.
Yan Zhi goes to Jang Zhi to tell her to go home. Jing Zhi throws the car keys at him and tell him to take his things, his love and his car away because she can’t afford them. He pushes that love can become like a blindfold that blocks things out. She admits that it can be a blindfold as well and blinding. She tells him that as soon as she’s away from Ling Qiao she starts worrying about him, and thinking of only him. She confesses that she is madly in love with him, and even though he would rather break down the bathroom door over coaxing her out she still loves him. She asks Yan Zhi if she was really so hopeless in his eyes to allow herself to get into a dangerous situation. Yan Zhi turns from her and tells her that it should be no longer than 48 hours if it’s true he didn’t kill anyone and tells her to leave.
Back home Jing Zhi is pacing her living room while Dong Dong is making them instant ramen for them to eat. Jing Zhi asks him how he could be eating when Ling Qiao has been at the police station for over 20 hours. Dong Dong tells him that if Ling Qiao really wanted to be free nothing could stop him, let alone a police station’s interrogation room. Needing some advice Jing Zhi tries to call Xuan Xuan with no success.
Xuan Xuan receives Jing Zhi’s phone call but ignores it. Chen makes his way over to Xuan Xuan to see her. He messes up a saying about missing you is better than meeting, and when Xuan Xuan corrects him he teases her about missing him. Chen admits that he thought she looked sad so he came over to see if she was ok. He asks her that since she is normally so strong why she has such a defenceless face, and just then Xuan Xuan’s mother calls. She and Xuan Xuan fight about her marriage to Shi Guang, and how if she meets a person she really likes then there is nothing she can do to stop her from breaking off the marriage. After she angrily hangs up the phone she and Chen share an awkward silence before they both start laughing. They liken the scene to a drama and Xuan Xuan excuses herself saying that the 1st leading lady will be going to wander around.
After Xuan Xuan settled her bill and is leaving the restaurant she finds Chen leaning against his car. He insists that he takes her out to eat, and when she declines he mentions that what he heard is a very big secret and he needs payment to keep his mouth shut. However while they are out eating Xuan Xuan loses her phone, and on the way back Chen’s car break down. Even though he is trying to wave someone down no one is stopping to help them. He mentioned that even though it was such an unlucky evening he is still very happy. Xuan Xuan teases that more men are happy to meet her. Chen drapes his jacket over her shoulders and told he it was nice to be understood. He requests the honour of watching the sunrise with her, she asks if she could say no, but since they are stuck she has no option.
While Ling Qiao is still at the police station he refuses to eat or drink, even though Calamary tells him he should. Calamary gets a phone call from his mother telling him that she has showed up at work with a blind date and he goes outside to see his mother.
The next day Jing Zhi went to Xuan Xuan’s house where no one answers. Not a few moments later Shi Guang shows up also looking for Xuan Xuan. Shi Guang offers to drive Jing Zhi home and tells her about how Xuan Xuan’s mother can’t get a hold of her, and the night before they had a fight. He suspected it was about their engagement. He confides in her that Xuan Xuan’s mother actually wanted them to get married. Jing Zhi mentions that Xuan Xuan must have a bad eye for men if she isn’t considering Shi Guang. When Ling Qiao asks about why she was looking for Xuan Xuan, she simply tells him she needs advice about something Ling Qiao did. She assures him it’s nothing serious. Shi Guang has always wanted friends outside of work and enjoys Ling Qiao company, which she tells him he seems to like his as well. Shi Guang notices that they are being followed and he tells her to hold on.
At the police station Ling Qiao starts to feeling Jing Zhi’s heart race, and it becomes painfully. He starts hearing his phone rings and believes that something must be wrong. He starts pounding on the door but no one answers, so he did the next best thing, he kicks down the door and the cops surround him with guns drawn. Calamary comes back, with his gun drawn, and Ling Qiao tells him to answer his phone. Calamary just tells him it’s a phone call it’s no big deal, and Ling Qiao says the magic words. He tells Calamary that Jing Zhi is in danger and this has Calamary answering the phone, and true enough he finds out Jing Zhi is being chased and he dispatches police.
Ling Qiao is released, and Yan Zhi asks if he is going to ask if Jing Zhi was ok. He tells him that if she’s wasn’t of he wouldn’t be there so he’s certain that she’s fine. Yan Zhi tells him she at the hospital and is asking to see him, and he offers to take him. Yan Zhi inquires how Ling Qiao knew that she was in danger. Ling Qiao tells him that it’s the connection people have, also he doesn’t have many friends, and when some one who knows he’s in police custody is calling incessantly something is wrong. Yan Zhi tells him that she should have called the police. Ling Qiao reminds him that she has an ex-boyfriend who is a police officer so she may not be able to trust the police, and Ling Qiao has never betrayed her trust so he is someone she can depend on.
The doctors come in and tell her she has a slight concussion and some minor scratches but she’s otherwise fine. She is zoning out but finally manages to focus enough to thank him. He asks if she wants a psychiatrist which she refuses, however as soon as Ling Qiao arrives she demands that he comes to her. As soon as he is within reach she throws her arms around him and break down crying. She asks him where was he, and why didn’t she come. She tells him that she waited for him to come save her but he didn’t. Ling Qiao holds her while she cries allowing her to calm down.
Once she calms down, Ling Qiao though something was wrong with her, and she tells him she was in shock and blamed him for not being there to save her. She tells him about meeting up with Shi Guang and the chase that happened. However when the police arrived the other car was already gone. When he asks about Shi Guang, she tells him he’s already gone because he had some pressing matters to attend to.
Jing Zhi asks her if there was any what she was the target, and she told him that the only one that she’s wronged is him and everyone else loves her. He starts to peel an apple and inquires why she didn’t call the police, and instead called him while he was in police custody. She admits she didn’t know, but when she was in the moment the only person she could think of was him. He unconsciously brushes back the hair from her ear and then pulls away equally as shocked as her.
They get home and she tells him that she hopes that this hospital staff is more discreet than the last one, because she didn’t want to get phone calls for interviews. Ling Qiao mentions that her phone is broken and she tells him that they’ll just call Dong Dong’s cell. Just after those words let her mouth Don Dong calls for Jing Zhi on Ling Qiao’s cell. After hanging up with Dong Dong, she complains that recently a series of bad jokes are happening to her. Ling Qiao mentions that her entire life is a series of bad jokes.
Jing Zhi reads comments online and then realizes that the only 2 events in her life that have made the front page has been car accidents. She also realizes that since she hadn’t planned on it leaking she hadn’t called her father, who at that moment calls Ling Qiao’s cell.
He parents come over and even though she tries to use this as an excuse for having ‘lost’ the baby, her mother tells her she called the hospital and found out she was never pregnant. Ling Qiao comes in the room while Jing Zhi’s mother is hitting her with a pillow and she hides behind her. Ling Qiao explains that Jing Zhi lied because she was certain they would not approve of their relationship, and he apologizes for going along with the lie.
Jing Zhi’s father reminds her mother that she was so happy when she found out that Jing Zhi was pregnant and since they have such a strong son-in-law then she’ll get pregnant quickly.
Calamary asks Yan Zhi if it’s really ok that they let Ling Qiao leave and he tells him that if he had committed the murders he will find out. He also asks that he doesn’t tell the boss that he was there. He inquires briefly about the chase, and Calamary tells him there were no witnesses and no cameras. He is asked to be kept in the loop of the developments.
Shi Guang meets with Officer Miao who came to his office to take his statement, Shi Guang apologies for making him come to him, however the police officer was more than willing to come. He tells him that he had actually received a Hong Shi Scholarship in school, and it made Shi Guang happy that he grew up to be a fine man. Right before Officer Miao leaves Shi Guang asks about a time frame before reporting someone missing.
