The Ultimate Addiction episode 19 recap

One thing I like about modern dramas is how I can connect it to real life. Just like how this series makes me think of how we would deal with the harshness if we were in the character’s situation.

The CCB post flyers searching for Kate.The CCB researched the fake 5,000 phone number calls started and most of them started with the number 6, 5, and 9. Bosco suggests the committee to expel Elena. Nancy told Jack that she wants to find Kate more than him. Bosco kisses Nancy on the bed. MC Jin told Toby he feels ashamed for yelling at Kate. Toby and MC Jin talked on the phone with each other and she found out that most of the victims are between 20 and 30 years old. Toby read the chats from his online game friend Master Yoda. MC Jin told Toby that most online friends are introverts or leechers and can’t be trusted. Toby thought about online game companies have clients mostly in the 20s and 30s. MC Jin blurted out “Good Idea that’s why I love you”. The game company owner told Ben that Elena’s brother showed him the list of the clients. Ben and Sharon saw a magazine cover of Elena’s brother sleeping with an actress. Elena suspects Bosco influencing her brother to frame her. Bosco looked at Kate photos with her mother. Kate works in a department store. Kate accidentally caused some magazines to be wet and got scold by her boss. The landlord seduced Kate and asked her to taste chicken. The landlord’s wife yelled at Kate. Kate walked alone in the rain.At the hospital, Nancy is upset she isn’t pregnant. Sharon is pregnant with Ben but she doesn’t really want to have a baby at this time. Nancy asked Sharon to cherish having a baby. As Ben and Sharon waits for Elena during dinner, she didn’t show up. Elena’s brother kidnapped Elena. Ben and Sharon search for Elena. Elena’s brother asked Elena to sign the document to transfer her share to his son. Elena’s brother said he has AIDS. Elena’s brother pushed the tissues in Elena’s mouth. Sharon grabbed Elena’s dog and recognized his brother’s pearl bracelet from the magazine. Ben found Elena and did the CPR for her. Ben took Elena to the hospital. Sharon saw Elena hugged Ben.

Ru Lai Shen Zhang episode 29 recap

Christopher Lee is so funny in this series. Athena Chu is so pretty as always. This is the first time I watched Chen Long and Christopher Lee in a series.

Christopher caused the bald man and Master Ha to fight over him to be their sect member. Christopher begged Liu Pao Pao to join master’s ha sect. Athena told Chilam that Phyllis seems to be estranged toward her. Chilam’s godsister and master plans to attend the martial sect competition. Christopher pretends to punch the two master’s in front of Master Ha. The two masters whined that they only received one bowl of congee which is not enough for them to have energy to work. Christopher told Master Ha that perhaps the bald man purposely gave the slaves a small portion of food to make his sect members weaker. Master Ha argued with the bald man. The two masters ran.The two masters are so clumsy fighting over hiding behind a tree. Master Ha saw the two masters. Christopher fought with the sect. As the sect members about to point their swords toward Christopher. Christopher surprisingly used his power on the sect. He was relieved his two hands didn’t get chopped. The two masters are impressed that Christopher mastered the skills.

The Ultimate Addiction episode 18 recap

There’s a problem that everytime I start a 30 episodes tvb series, I struggle to finish it. That’s why I skipped a lot of 30 episodes series recently. The Ultimate Addiction started alright but now I’m struggling to finish it. 🙂

I like watching Bosco, Kate, and Nancy interaction the most. Ben and Elena bored me though they are good actors.

Bosco hired an excellent doctor to cure Kate. Doctor Day told Ben he believes Kate can recover in six months. Bosco told Ben he doesn’t even need to tell Kate he helped her, and he will stop visiting her. I’m tired of watching the Business talk. Elena discuss the idea of preventing Hongkong, London, and New York bank partnership. Elena disapprove Honkong partnership with Wan Gu. Jazz joked with his friend that they should kidnap Elena’s dog so she won’t interfere in the meeting. Nancy is upset that Bosco has changed. Jazz asked Bosco if he likes Kate or he just feels guilty. Nancy said Bosco only cares about Kate and doesn’t focus on his work. Nancy worries the company will go down if Bosco continues to care about Kate. In the bathroom as Bosco massaged Nancy, she told him that she doesn’t care how much money they make but she wants to make money with him. Kate and the CCB did a funeral for Kate’s mother. Bosco visited Kate’s father’s grave and promised him not to hurt Kate. MC Jin, Ben, and Jack performed the leg therapy with Kate. This series is starting to be repetitive. You know how there used to be Sharon’s family fight and Ginnie and Bosco family fight, I also think the C-Coins part of Master Fat is draggy. Master Fat heard the news of Elena illegal gambling with her brother and withdraw her stocks. Bosco waits till Elena closes her bank. Elena rejected Hongkong bank listing in Wan Gu.Bosco watches Kate doing therapy, on his ipad. Flashbacks of Nancy giving Bosco money to pay his company’s debt. Brainman has become successful. Bosco proposed to Nancy and promised he will never leave her. Elena’s brother came into Elena’s office and accused her of being bankrupt. I guess since Kate’s revenge is revealed, this series will focus more on Bosco and Elena’s conflicts. Elena’s brother told Elena to retire then he will leave Hongkong. If not, he will drag her down with him. Elena confronts his brother about her cleaning up his mess such as sleeping around. Elena’s brother told Elena it’s better to hand down her business to her family member than an outsider. Seeing Ginnie looking at Stephen played the guitar in the hospital to Kate, makes me wonder if there will be a relationship between Stephen and Ginnie. Ginnie cried and thought about her ex boyfriend whom also played that song. Flashbacks of Ginnie heard the news of the boat where her boyfriend was in, sunk. Some kids bumped into Kate and dropped their ice cream. Kate crawled trying to pick up her father’s watch. Nancy picked up the watch and smiled. Nancy wiped Kate’s face and said she is pitiful now and she should learn to write her name before she dies. Nancy told Kate if she was her she would die. As Bosco drives by the hospital he saw Nancy leaving. Bosco visited Kate but didn’t see her. Bosco asked Nancy where did Kate go. Bosco told Nancy he will take care of Kate but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t love her. Nancy cried and told Bosco he promised he would take care of her. Nancy asked Bosco to get his hands off her. Nancy is jealous of Kate.
