Jom opens the door and explores the unfamiliar house, his attention-getting caught by a typewriter on a table. Suddenly, he’s startled by a faint voice calling his name so he heads upstairs toward the source of the sound and hears voices coming from a room. Curious, he sneaks a glance inside and is shocked to see himself and another man in bed together. The door abruptly closes, and when he reopens it, the room is empty. Gazing into the room’s mirror, he’s surprised to see the other person, who resembles him, staring and moving closer before he’s abruptly awakened. He immediately heads to his workspace to sketch the room he witnessed in his dream, the sun already shining when he finishes it. He drives to a location resembling the house from his dream and gazes at a picture frame in the living room. He gets a call from Thanet about altering the design of the house, upset that Jom didn’t consult with him first even though the clients were okay with the changes. The conversation ends when Jom is called to inspect the room upstairs. Uncle Tan reveals a large chest that mysteriously appeared in the room, and he asks Jom if he has the keys given by Ying to unlock it and reveal its contents. Using the keys, Jom opens the chest to find a collection of sketches inside, particularly of a man. Thinking it might be important, they decide to put the chest in the storage room.

Back at home, Jom attempts to call Ohm but doesn’t receive a response. Instead, he decides to browse through the house photos. He stops at one image, noticing what appears to be a figure in the shadows. Suddenly, the door in front of him swings open, making him go closer. In the dimly lit room, a person stands before the windows but vanishes abruptly as the lightning flashes. In the morning, Somjeed calls Jom, observing his disappointed expression, and questions if Ohm hasn’t contacted him yet. Playfully nagging, Somjeed prompts Jom to reassure her that Ohm is returning in a few days. She shifts her questions to his well-being, and Jom goes on to share that strange occurrences have been happening since he accepted his recent work. He recounts his dreams from the previous day and how the house he’s working on feels oddly familiar. Their conversation is interrupted by a call from Uncle Tan, who reports roof leaks at the house due to a tree collapsing during the storm. Uncle Tan expresses his surprise as he sees Jom arriving, believing Jom had already come last night due to hearing his voice. They agree to fix the roof once the rain subsides when suddenly, Ohm messages him, expecting to see him tonight.

In a flashback 2 years before, as Jom enters the door, we see Ohm asking about a sketch on the wall with their names. Jom explains it’s the house he designed for them, but Ohm requests him to wait for him to make that dream come true. In the present, Jom embraces Ohm once he arrives inside their place, conveying his longing, and kisses him. However, Ohm interrupts, announcing that he’s getting married to someone he met in the UK. He expresses his apologies and hopes Jom can find someone better than him before leaving. Jom follows Ohm outside to see the woman he’s marrying come out of the car, smoking as she’s holding on to her pregnant belly. Heartbroken, Jom rips apart the sketch of the house he designed for them and shatters their photo frame. Jom gets heavily intoxicated at the club and is approached by a stranger who brings him back to his car but the stranger tries to touch him without his consent. In his drunken state, Jom vomits and stumbles out of the car, the stranger kicking him before driving away. Jom, overwhelmed with sorrow, speeds away in his car. Lost in thought, he doesn’t notice the truck ahead, swerving to avoid it and ending up crashing into the water where a stranger kisses him and provides air, pushing him up to the surface.

Jom manages to swim to shore but collapses from exhaustion. He’s discovered by another stranger, who wakes him and questions his identity. The stranger attempts to shake information out of Jom, but he ends up vomiting and fainting once more. He regains consciousness to overhear the two strangers discussing his innocence, both wondering how he ended up in the river. Jom, however, inquires about his location and their identities. The woman counters, claiming that they should be the ones asking questions. Jom then expresses his desire to return to where they discovered him. When he requests to borrow the stranger’s phone, he misunderstands it as Jom asking for their hand. The person, Ming, takes out the bracelet found along with Jom and decides to escort him to the police for assistance. They use a boat for transportation, and Jom feels confused by the unfamiliar scenery. They reach Kad Luang, another unfamiliar place for him. As it’s near the police station, Jom heads there on his own but before leaving, Ming requests that he remembers the names of his rescuers. On the way there, he tries to borrow a phone once again, but his attempt is met with confusion, and he’s chased away. Approaching a group of people who are drinking on the street, he asks about any ongoing event due to everyone being in costume but the drunk group becomes angry, and he’s once again chased away. Jom finds himself in front of a small food stall, receiving burnt sausage. He retreats to a hidden spot, away from curious gazes, and devours the meal hungrily.

Seeking directions to the police station, Jom’s attention is drawn to a newspaper in a man’s hand. As he tries to ask about the year, he’s mistaken for a thief but fortunately, Ming comes to clear his name. He is then guided by Ming to find a place to eat, convinced that the police station isn’t the place where Jom should be. Jom asks Ming about the date, month, and year, as well as the current ruler of Chiang Mai now to clear up any confusion but he gets taken aback by the information given to him. Suddenly, a plumeria flower drifts onto their boat, and Jom retrieves it, only to realize that the same man from his dreams had picked up the same flower in front of him. Ming suddenly panics after seeing a gecko, causing the boat to overturn. The man witnessing the incident comes to Jom’s rescue, invoking memories of the same man who had previously kissed and saved him in the water.

 

Time travel often comes with heartache, yet maybe there’s hope that the love Jom discovers could break the constraints of time. The first meeting of Jom and Yai definitely feels magical, with the plumeria flower symbolizing a new beginning that we will get to witness in the episodes to come.
