Episode 8

With Shirasaki telling Hayama that they would stop pretending to be in a relationship, Hayama found himself not being able to concentrate well on his role as “Ryouji” in their series. Finding himself confused about his feelings, Hayama goes to the gay bar where his friend from college and film club days, Mihara, is working. Mihara gets Hayama to talk a little bit about his problems and offhandedly mentions that he misses their hometown.

This prompted Hayama to go back to his hometown, especially their campus where he found himself reminiscing over his past. He went back to the film club room and found the film where he first started acting. It was then that he realized… that he was bad at acting before. But it was also when he realized how much fun he thought acting was.

Meanwhile, Shirasaki was getting stressed over how his character “Takumi” and Hayama’s character would have a bed scene. He thought about how it wouldn’t help at all in him trying to get over his own feelings toward him. But as Shirasaki was about to spiral, someone was violently knocking on his door to ask him to hang out. And it was unsurprisingly Yamase. After stepping all over his bed, Yamase then continues to talk about how Sakuma told him that Shirasaki had gone back to his hometown, loudly wondering if Hayama had gone with the person he was in love with. Furious, Shirasaki goes out to collect his dry clothes, with Yamase stifling laughter at how obvious Shirasaki’s jealousy is.

Yamase drags Shirasaki out to drink with Sakuma. Shirasaki gets a bit drunk and starts to brag about how great Hayama is in acting, which prompts Yamase to ask if they are really dating. Shirasaki and Sakuma brought the question back to him, asking if he has feelings for Hayama the way he was so invested in him. Yamase thinks about it and says he probably has, shocking both Shirasaki and Sakuma. Suddenly, Hayama comes into the place where they were hanging out, just when Shirasaki is very clearly drunk. As he was contemplating how much he missed Hayama and how much he would miss him once they wrapped up filming, they all decided to leave, with Yamase and Sakuma asking Hayama if he could bring Shirasaki home. While they were on their way, Sakuma asked Yamase if he really had feelings for Hayama, but Yamase said it was merely admiration for his acting talent.

Although hesitant to bring him home because of their recent situation, Hayama still carried Shirasaki on his back toward the hill where he lives. He even brought him inside and brought him water to help him sober up. The two talked for a bit, and Shirasaki leaned on Hayama, asking him to sleep with him.

Episode 9

Hayama does not agree immediately with Shirasaki’s request to sleep with him because he thinks he is drunk. Shirasaki repeatedly says he isn’t drunk and he practically begs him to sleep with him (fondly). Hayama asks what he means by this and Shirasaki says he wants to because he wants to get into character and Hayama says he will cooperate (even though, very clearly, Shirasaki is not asking this to get into his character).

The two eventually end up taking off their clothes and making out, with Shirasaki taking off Hayama’s belt… until Hayama eventually (and very reluctantly) puts a stop to it. He puts his clothes back and the two apologize to each other, with Shirasaki blaming it on his drunk state. Hayama bids him goodnight and hurriedly leaves, leaving a distraught and very clearly sober Shirasaki.

Back at work, the two are finally filming their bed scene and everything is going really well, with the scene even being so natural between the two of them. But after the scene, it seemed that the two were awkward once again. The two reminisce about their moments together (individually) throughout the whole filming time. Every single time that they spent together to “prepare” for other roles, where the two find themselves falling deeper for each other. But despite those memories, the two still maintained their awkwardness even during the last filming day where their characters had to reunite, hug, and confess their feelings for each other, leading to their own happy ending.

Since filming has finally wrapped up, Shirasaki goes over to Hayama’s house to collect all of the things he left at his house. Hayama offers him coffee, but Shirasaki immediately declines, saying he won’t stay long anyway. Shirasakit talks about how he thought about he would miss the cast and crew, and it was different from Hayama’s experience because this was Shirasaki’s first time having a leading role in a big project. Shirasaki gets up and prepares to leave with his bag, but as he is just about to leave, Hayama stops him.

The next scene was cut to the next day when Shirasaki was saying goodbye to “Asami” now. What will happen to Shirasaki and Hayama now that everything has wrapped up? Will the two never cross paths again and completely disregard their feelings for each other? Or will they finally communicate well?
