The angst is real people and I don’t know if I am going to survive the sad expressions of our Angel and Ballerina for much longer. Join me as I share my unfiltered thoughts about this week’s episode as well as some questions that have been bouncing around my head.
Am I the only one that thought these episodes were light on major moments but were instead, a bunch of small scenes that created a larger picture? With that in mind, I am going to shift my recap to more of an unfiltered thoughts format. Which means, I am going to ramble and hopefully you will check back next week when we go back to our regular style. So without further ado…
Because of his fear that he will destroy Yeon Seo by having to leave her, Angel Dan decides that the best defense is a good offense. He promptly goes and quits. Not only that but he says hurtful things (multiple times) to Yeon Seo in order to push her away. She will be happy with her dancing and maybe Kang Woo so everything will be fine if he leaves. Of course, this destroys Yeon Seo who goes into full out pining mode and is distracted from her dancing.
All of these scenes where he was cruel just broke my heart. Especially since you could see how much it was hurting him to hurt her. I consider this some of their best acting to date.
So…the various women that are in the ballet corps are total WITCHES. Ugh, I had the hardest time watching their petty behavior. I really hope that this whole mean girl trend is over now that Yeon Seo is showing how talented she really is.
Kudos to Yeon Seo for not bitch slapping them. She was a classy calm diva among a group of catty jerks.
Ni Na is so forgettable
I am sad that a character that I thought had potential has turned into such a forgettable bore. Now, whenever I see that tight-lipped fretting expression of hers, I just feel annoyance. The addition of her k
Unexpected bad guy
Was I the only one surprised that Evil Aunt was not involved in any of the murders? Evil Cousin stepped up her bad guy game as her cold demeanor even had her mom scared. I have a feeling that Evil Cousin is just biding her time before she gets rid of her mom and takes over Fantasia. Like mother, like evil overlooked daughter.
Not all knowing
One of the aspects of this drama I am finding the most confusing is the concept of Angels and their relationship with God. What are they doing on earth? Are the omnipotent or some type of monster/non-human that doesn’t deserve happiness? It doesn’t seem that the head Priest Angel is in the know when it comes to Angel Dan’s
Yeon Seo is Giselle
The scene where Yeon Seo practices her performance for Giselle was beyond beautiful. Her expressions and inability to not dance her feelings regarding Angel Dan gave her performance that amazing edge that set her apart from the other dancers. I literally teared up over her, and the imaginary Angel Dan’s, despair.
We knew each other way back when
I still am invested in the tragic backstory of Angel Dan. Trying to understand why he is on earth and what it means to be human, not to mention the many dreams he has of this boy, he travels to the island. There he realizes that he was indeed this boy and all the dreams of abuse and meeting Yeon Seo as a child are real. We end the episode with him walking down to the ocean side and running into Yeon Seo at the dock. These two can’t stay apart even when they try. I really hope they get back together soon because I can’t take any
Until the Next Dance,
