I guess these two episodes made everyone happy, didn’t they? It makes sense of course even though I never stopped liking Heirs. So it’s all good. Heirs was the only drama I was able to catch up last week being away and with mobile internet only but I’m glad I did.
After the way episode 12 ended I couldn’t wait for the next one. After Tan took a step forward, breaking off his engagement and confessing who his real mother is, he seemed so lost. It made sense considering the scale of his actions. So he went to see the only person in his life that would understand and comfort him- Eun Sang. And all I wanted while seeing him like this was for Eun Sang to go up to him and hug him. I wasn’t sure if they would grand my wish but they did! They did! Finally Eun Sang takes the initiative in this relationship and makes a move. She’s not just reacting to Tan’s actions. She hugged him and for me that made all the difference.
In general for me these two episodes were mostly about Eun Sang. Her time to shine came. I always found her character very realistic so I wasn’t bothered about her being scared or not stepping up from the beginning. But of course I wanted for her to overcome her fears and say she had enough. And that moment finally came. They way she confronted Rachel, ohh I just loved it! And then of course her time to make big confessions came. Saying in front of everyone that she is not “new-money”, that she is in fact poor and works several part times jobs was amazing. It took such courage to step out of her safe bubble, just as Tan did breaking his engagement that his father prepared to keep him “safe”, and finally admit who she really is. It would be easier to just go on letting everyone believe whatever but is it the right thing? Some would argue that it wasn’t but I was in this different group that believed that in certain circumstances that you just have to go the flow. But when you stop being comfortable “going with the flow” then yes please speak up. Say the truth. Live with the difficulties. It is much better. You’re gonna feel much better.
And after Eun Sang I found that the girls in these episode were the protagonists. Especially Rachel. I would really like to feel sympathy for her. I really do. But I can’t. I’m sorry. I understand that she is in a very difficult situation, that she might be feeling betrayed and alone. I even understand that she is a human being and gets hurt by all the gossip and they way people treat her. But, there is a big but yes. Even though all these she still goes on and treats other like trash too (I’m not excluding Young Do here because he is doing the same thing). She still behaves equally bad like the ones around her. Like Young Do for example. And there is this thing with me. I always expect women to better than men. I put too much faith in my gender. I believe that in difficult times women can make more rational choices. That they will try to see the light in the dark. And so it bothers me much more, it infuriates me even more the fact that Rachel behaves the way she does. That she wasn’t able to be the bigger person. And maybe it’s just me that feels like that but still..
To keep it sort I want to end it here. I actually feel that I said everything that I wanted to say about these two episodes. Only two more things. I adored all the cute moments between Tan and Eun Sang, and between them and his mother. Also loved the small interactions between Tan and Won. Hopefully something will warm Won’s heart just a little bit more.
Overall I really enjoyed these two episodes. Full of courage and cute and warm moments. And I was so impatient and read some parts from episodes 15 and 16 recaps. Obviously I made the wrong choice. Obviously.It is always a bad thing when you know that you won’t be able to watch the actual thing right after. Ohh I’m off to watch the next two. Can’t wait!
