Yes, I’m back (again, lol). It took several months but I think I can finally finish MIR2 recaps. Let’s get started. (Spoilers, obv.)
It seems MIR’s episode 6 is all about torturing its characters.
In this episode, Cid finally proposes to Tee officially by offering a bouquet of flowers only to get turned down. While Tee says it’s because that he’s not ready and they are still in school, we all know it’s actually because he is still in love with Fuse. Later, Cid seems to have gained some traction (as he was chosen to escort Tee back to his house) but tbh, I don’t think TeexCid will happen, like – ever.
At this point, I would be surprised if MIR didn’t torture Tee emotionally in some way. He moves out of Fuse’s house but we can clearly see through his longing looks that he’s still hurt and wants to be with Fuse. He obviously also wants Fuse to say something and disclose his feelings towards him but gives a disappointed look and leaves with Cid when Fuse does nothing. Poor Tee doesn’t get what he wants either.
The only good thing about this episode is that we get to see Fuse getting hurt as well. First, he cries when he observes the bouquet incident between Cid and Tee. And later, he acts jealous and irritated when he finds out that Cid is the one driving Tee back home. But, as usual, he doesn’t do anything about this because he’s a stupid fuccboi.
And obviously, MIR had to spoil one good thing that was left in the show – Book and Frame. It was their 2 month anniversary (has it only been 2 months? It feels like 2 years no? 😛 ) and everything was going great. Frame had prepared a surprise dinner and even given him a couple ring but it all came crashing down when Book’s sex tape leaked. Book is of course devastated but he also ends up pushing Frame away by saying that he wants to be alone. I’m sure that he just wants to protect Frame and doesn’t want him to deal with all the drama but still it’s hard to watch them go through this.
The success story of MIR – Frame – also had to endure some hardships this episode. After going through all that trouble, he had to leave Book as Book wanted to be alone after the video leak. He definitely wants to be a supportive boyfriend but Book keeps pushing him away. The episode ends as Frame leaves the room but I’m sure that he’ll find a way to come back.
[I think there’s a love triangle going on between Lukmo, Lukmo’s old girlfriend and Yok. But, as always, we won’t get into that.]
Arbitrary Points Counter:
- Them thicc arms. +20
- Our Tee is certainly multi-talented. +10
- Cid knows how to propose. +10. Bonus +5 for Tee being shirtless.
- Bitch! After making Tee suffer through all of that, I ain’t even sad. +50
- #couplegoals +20
- Frame’s surprise is on point! Plus, he makes sure that Book’s hair is perfect. +50
- I am so jealous! +25
- Yes, P’Tern is the villain but damn he knows how to execute a perfect surprise as well. +10
- Cid is enjoying this wayy too much 😛 +15
- I haven’t been following their story line but these two do make a very cute couple. +10
- Look at that sad face! Hopefully, Cid will find happiness with someone else. -20
- Tee continues to suffer! -50
- Why is everyone crying in this episode? -50
- -100 for terrible B plots.
Verdict: This episode barely manages to remain on the hot side. However, it is still filled with more sad moments than the happy one. And, the B plots continue to remain terrible. Even if MIR pairs off Tee and Fuse in the end, I feel like the damage has already been done and I won’t be able to enjoy their reunion that much. And about the sex tape – I do applaud MIR for having the courage to explore an important topic but I don’t think it was executed well.
Next episode: Tee and Fuse get tied up.
