Episode 17

Su Yu’s mother continues to attempt to communicate with her son but is consistently ignored. Su Yu and Wu Bi pass by the house she purchased one day and hides away after recalling her son’s warning to tell Wu Bi about the statue if she bothers them again. Meanwhile, Mo Yi informs Su Yu about his and Wu Bi’s involvement in Aunt Zhou’s business. Su Yu surprises his mother by paying her a visit, but his objective is to inquire about Wu Bi’s mother’s death. His mother swears her innocence and continues to explain that her relationship with Wu Bi’s father began years later. Wu Bi and Duo Duo continue to form a tight bond over missing a parent.

 

Wu Bi realizes his stepbrother is upset and inquires as to what is bothering him. Su Yu chooses to confront him directly about why he believes his mother stole Wu Bi’s father from his wife; the latter recalls overhearing their workers discussing his father’s infidelity and, later, a divorce between his parents when he was young. When Su Yu visits his mother again, he sees that there is no trace of her in the house but enough of Wu Bi’s mother. Su Yu recognizes that his mother is in pain despite the material things that surround her. She ultimately informs him about her history with Wu Bi’s parents. Wu Bi’s father requested her to sing for his wife’s birthday, and while her intention was to seduce him, she recognized that the couple’s relationship is strong, and Wu Bi’s mother is also such a nice person that she even sculpted the singer’s son as a present. Su Yu mentions that Wu Bi overheard the two getting divorced, which surprises his mother because she believes the couple’s love is unbreakable. He asks her if they can find out more about the accident, and while she initially said it would be impossible, she promised to help when Su Yu called her “mom.”

Later, Su Yu’s mother hands him a document from when the couple’s company encountered a huge difficulty when one of their suppliers, Xicheng Medical, provided medical supplies that caused patients to die. The aforementioned venture is managed by Wu Bi’s mother, who admits to giving sales approval. Su Yu continues to investigate Xicheng Medical and discovers that they are also the suppliers of the rival company, realizing there is something else going on.

Episode 18

Su Yu’s mother informs him of the existence of Ren He, Wu Bi’s second uncle, who severed relations with the family following his sister’s death, and he decides to track him down personally. He enters Ren’s heavily guarded home and sees a tied dog, which he pets, not realizing that the owner is watching him. Ren, informs him that the dog never allows anyone to pet it beside him, leading Su Yu to believe that the uncle is nice. He follows him into the house, but he is stopped by the guards. They instruct him to wait outside since Ren is busy. Su Yu gives in to the old man’s whim and patiently waits outside despite the heat, but he is denied exit when he attempts to go out to eat.

The evening arrives, but he is still not allowed in. Thirsty, he decides to drink from the man-made fountain but is forcibly pushed into it by the guard. To pass the time, Su Yu phones Wu Bi, who meets with his former classmates; they are surprised when he answers the phone in a gentle tone and teases him about it. Su Yu seeks shelter beside Mo Ren’s dog as the rain pours down, and his phone cuts out in the middle of a call. The next day, he was again denied entry until the evening. Meanwhile, Wu Bi returns home to find the house vacant; he searches for Su Yu, whose phone is already broken.

Ren, He finally calls Su Yu to speak after the second night of waiting. The old guy informs him that he knows who he is and his mother. He goes on to say that he sympathizes with her for being a victim of years past.

 

Episode 19

(Warning: This episode contains mentions of suicide and violence)

Back at Ren He’s, the old man says that his sister committed suicide to bear the blame for the company. She made the sacrifice knowing that her husband was dedicated to his company. He admits to spreading rumors about Su Yu’s mother and Wu Bi’s father in the hopes of separating his sister from her husband, but he was unaware that the couple loved and trusted each other so much. Ren, He believes Wu Bi’s father knows the truth. He gives Su Yu the letter his sister left to prove Su Yu’s mother’s innocence and plans to tell his nephew the truth.

Su Yu is confronted by Wu Bi when he gets home, who keeps asking him where he has been. He explains that he knows the truth about their parents from visiting Wu Bi’s uncle, and he’s the inspiration for the statue due to the good relationship between their mothers. He hands Wu Bi the note his mother left him, but the latter is still controlled by his worry-induced rage. Su Yu wonders if his pain is worthwhile. Wu Bi returns home and sobs in his mother’s room before apologizing to Su Yu’s mother for all he said. He discovers that Su Yu is in the hospital and what happened at his Uncle’s place. He realizes Su Yu went through so much for him and goes to Ren He’s house to beat them for making Su Yu suffer. He sees the guard who kicked Su Yu and violently smashes his face in the fountain.

When Wu Bi arrives to join them in celebrating Su Yu’s birthday, the celebrant ignores him. Later, he approaches Su Yu and apologizes. He emotionally asks Su Yu why he had to meddle and see his uncle only to find out the truth. He claims he’d rather not find out if it will cost his stepbrother. Su Yu ends up apologizing to the tearful Wu Bi, who eventually gives him the statue, a birthday gift six years later that has finally reached its owner. They go to Wu Bi’s house for his birthday, where he is given a car. When they return home, they discover a surprise birthday celebration for Wu Bi with Duo Duo, Aunt Zhou, Lao Si, and even Bo Kuang’s family. Wu Bi’s father observes from the outside and realizes that his son truly enjoys being with Su Yu’s family.

 

Episode 20

During their vacation, Su Yu and Wu Bi begin working at Aunt Zhou’s restaurant and are surprised by Wu Bi’s father. Wu Bi serves his father, who compliments the dish and then leaves. Wu Bi’s father begins to invite his coworkers into the restaurant, who all compliment Wu Bi for working part-time.

At home, Duo Duo unintentionally discovers a secret compartment in the statue where Su Yu and Wu Bi see a paper proving Wu Bi’s father was duped six years ago by his supplier in collusion with his rival company. They rush to tell Wu’s father about the evidence. They watch CCTV from the day Wu Bi’s mother died and see that her car traveled through the crossing twice. They believe something happened between those times.

In a flashback, Ren receives a letter from his sister, who is going to commit suicide. Meanwhile, Wu Bi’s mother, who is set to carry out her plan, receives word that proof will be provided in exchange for money. She complies with it knowing that she no longer needs to sacrifice herself. When she discovers she is being pursued, she places the evidence into the compartment of the statue and attempts to flee her pursuers, who manage to crash into her car, killing her.

The father and son pay a visit to her grave, where Wu Bi’s father informs him that the criminals are now being investigated by the police. He apologizes to her for not being able to properly care for his son. Wu Bi pats his father as he bows. Su Yu’s mother is visited by her husband in the new house she purchased for their sons, and he invites her to a meal. Wu Bi’s father begins to assist Aunt Zhou’s restaurant by bringing in clients.

Meanwhile, Aunt Zhou and Duo Duo must pay a visit to the former’s ailing grandmother.
