Side note: *Happy fuckin’ birthday to me. Sad reacts only*
I have many excuses. Since I am an adult now, I have many responsibilities. It’s not that those responsibilities kept me from writing these recaps but more like, the effort required to think about those responsibilities and wallow in self-pity kept me from doing anything. I am sorry. I will try to do better. Anyway, let’s recap. (Spoilers, obv.)
Do I even remember where we left off? Hmm, let’s see.
Oh, yes. Book ran off thinking that his video~ had leaked and Frame also ran after him. Thankfully, it’s not one of his and both boys breathe a sigh of relief (along with me). Frame promises that whatever happens, he will be there for Book. Later in their condo, they continue their cuteness where Frame admits to Book that he has made him a better person. Then, Book channels his inner Ed Sheeran and asks – 🎵 When your legs don’t work like they used to before. And I can’t sweep you off of your feet. Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love. Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks 🎵. To which Frame obviously replies – 🎵 And darling I will be loving you ’til we’re 70. And baby my heart could still fall as hard at 23 🎵.
However, all this is making me a little bit uncomfortable. Specially, how they keep on mentioning the video stuff and how it affects the people involved. Foreshadowing?
Side note: In this season, we haven’t seen any other kids in the place they call college. What happened? Were they not allowed to shoot during school time? Budget issues?
Anyway, with Fuse and Tee, Fuse is still trying to slide into Tee’s DM in school but it looks like Tee’s over it and ignores him. Fuse then asks if he wants to go to the tutoring school with him and complains that Tee doesn’t have time for him anymore. Okay, hold up. Are you fracking kidding me? Are you blind? You are the reason why this is happening. You are the reason that he is sad and you still have the balls to say that. Smh.
Thankfully, Tee leaves Fuse (for now) behind to go to the tutoring centre with Cid. Seriously, they look so cute together. Even though Tee keeps demurring, this needs to happen. I was also pleasantly surprised by another meet cute that happened between Tee and a hot guy when they are returning home. A second hot guy for Tee? Yes, please. However, my happiness doesn’t last long when it turns out that he was there with another guy and also, he is his mother’s boyfriend (!!!!!). :O
So, Tee’s mother has been dating that guy (Pob) and comes to Tee’s condo with him to get his approval. Even though Tee knows about Pob and his true nature, Tee (the ever-generous, possessor of infinite heart, our lord and savoir) says yes. When his mother goes out of the room, Pob emotionally blackmails Tee to not say anything to his mother about his dalliances with other guys. Tee tries to warn his mother later but can’t do it seeing how happy his mother is (at least at that moment) with Pob.
Unfortunately, this leads to his breakdown in the rain and he goes to the only person he knows and feels comfortable with – Fuse. It’s so sad to see that Tee feels that he has no one to turn to except Fuse, who doesn’t even love him.
This show can’t let Tee be happy. 😦
But, Tee gets to spend some quality time with Fuse and we see what could have been if these two were together – their innuendo filled conversation, shirtless (but sexless) sleepover, and the flirty breakfast time. Alas, this happiness is cut short when Fuse mentions that he has to go to the school with Jean. To which Tee, the epitome of grace and sadness, says that he understands and this is enough for him.
First of all, Tee – you deserve so much more than that stupid Fuse. I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again – he doesn’t appreciate you and you need someone who knows your worth. However, I can also understand where Tee is coming from. We can’t help who we fall in love with. So, with heavy heart, I will just say this – I will be happy if Tee’s happy. Sigh.
[As usual, I will be skipping Rodtang and Mo’s storyline. If you have to know, Rodtang is still acting obnoxious and running away from his responsibilities. Nine is still covering for Rodtang. Lamom still has the prettiest eyelashes. And, Mo and the gang are still the weirdest. Seriously, I think I saw Mo bringing an adult diaper as a gift to Yok’s mother. Whaa?]

Comment: The only ‘Hot’ episode till date. That too, it’s only because I skipped all the unnecessary parts and because Tee continues to be the one true hero and because ‘Book and Frame’ continue to be the #couplegoals. I was about to give -∞ for making my Tee cry. However, I felt like I’ve been overly harsh on this show and there were some genuinely good moments that I enjoyed. So, I changed my mind. I don’t know why I’m explaining myself. Okay, bye.
Next episode: Cid, it’s time to show your magic.
Season 1 recaps: Here.
