The recaps for today’s episodes have been combined together.
Xiao Nai and Cao Guang start their match. Xiao Nai’s friends remark that Xiao Nai is only playing at half-strength and that Cao Guang cannot win even then. After a few rounds of back and forth, Xiao Nai stops but then Da Zhong (Xiao Ling’s boyfriend) remarks that Cao Guang is pursing Bei Wei Wei. Xiao Nai drops his stuff and challenges Cao Guang again, remarking that he had been showing mercy before.
Yu Gong feels killing intent and Mo Zha Ta states that even the weather has changed. Xiao Nai beats Cao Guang even more mercilessly.
Wei Wei and Xiao Nai’s group kill Boss Meng who appears as a snake-like monster. As in the novel, Wei Wei is inspired to make a video.
For all those MVs that have already been made of the play, this one is fully canon and extremely well-done.
Er Xi has started out in the beginning village and she enlists Wei Wei to help her. When Wei Wei is helping her master skills, the classmate that Cao Guang asked for help from in the past episode comes into the room and distracts Er Xi. She rationally assumes that Wei Wei is playing on her own account and remembers the name which she messages Cao Guang.
Meng Yi Ran is being an assistant-intern at her uncle’s company, Zhen Yi Technologies. She persuades the assistant for the intern applications to let her see the applications and tells the assistant to reject Wei Wei and her friends as Na Na has told her that Wei Wei also likes Xiao Nai.
Xiao Nai’s parents finally appear in the drama. Xiao Nai’s father has a go game with Xiao Nai and they converse about his ambitions to start a gaming company. Xiao Nai tells his father that it is not a lifetime ambition, but just until he is twenty-five. He then informs his father he is going to support his father’s history class by attending.
Xiao Nai attends his father’s history class where, coincidentally, Wei Wei is also in attendance. He asks to sit by her and Wei Wei agrees. His presence quickly attracts attention and helps fill the nearly empty auditorium. When Professor Xiao comes in, he asks what had been taught in last class and picks Wei Wei who was in attendance and manages to answer.
After class, Wei Wei has to go past Xiao Nai in order to exit and only says “thank you.” Xiao Nai watches her scurry away.
Back at dorms, Wei Wei and her friends discuss Xiao Nai. When Wei Wei and Er Xi go to get water, Cao Guang sees them but walks away with his friends after stating he now has a plan.
The episode ends with Wei Wei in the library on her computer with Xiao Nai sitting on a table diagonally behind her where he can see her back.
Cao Guang registers for the game and is bewildered by the number of servers. He doesn’t know her server but knows Er Xi’s ID so he ends up … … in the wrong server.
Back in the library, Wei Wei is studying when she checks her computer to see if Nai He has sent the MV at the appointed time. When she receives it, the camera moves to where Xiao Nai was to show an empty seat and he is shown in the bookshelves diagonally in front of Wei Wei. He then peeks through the books to get a view of her face.
He is able to watch Wei Wei’s reaction through the gaps in the bookshelves.
Xiao Nai ends up moving a chair and his computer to the book aisles to keep his view.
Er Xi has reached level 30 on her game character but bugs Wei Wei to help her kill monsters. Along the way, she saves a new character named Wei Guang (hem … …) who then begs to be Er Xi’s disciple. Er Xi is overjoyed at having someone following her.
Ni Ni makes the same offer to leave the video contest as in the novel to Wei Wei. Wei Wei and Nai He get their prizes for the video contest and Wei Wei reflects on if she would see Nai He again if she stops playing the game.
Xiao Nai is seen moving back to the dorms by his three friends having to wash their socks and clean up the room. The males cry over their predicament and recall back to when they first came to the university and had to sort out their ranking. Since there is only four people in the room (rather than six in the novel) Yu Gong is first, then Hou Zi Jiu, Mo Zha Ta, and Xiao Nai is last. Xiao Nai challenges them and ends up winning but takes the ranking of third so he can avoid doing any duties (and not second because … … you know.)
Yu Gong receives a call from the assistant of Manager Li and is invited to a dinner with the manager alone. The friends realize that the company is trying to headhunt and Xiao Nai informs them that they have succeeded before with another small company. He states that it is a good opportunity but refuses to explain to his friends by saying they should eat first.
The four of them arrive at a cafeteria which happens to also be frequented by Wei Wei and Er Xi for lunch. Xiao Nai ends up in the line that is beside Wei Wei’s line and the two reach the counter at the same time. They both order sweet and sour pork and is refused by the server who stares at the two of them and then states there is only one portion left.
Xiao Nai changes his order and so does Wei Wei. The two of them are interrupted by Mo Zha Ta who bursts between them and says he’ll take it. The server gives him all of it (which is the size of three typical portions.)
At the table, Mo Zha Ta remarks that he likes this new cafeteria that they never go to because it is very far from their dorms as he got a lot of meat from the server. Yu Gong complains about the lack of meat in his dishes.
The episode ends with the two of them discussing the beginning of the Couples PK Tournament.
My speculations: I don’t want to read too much but the server is a very suspicious person. Apparently, male servers are rare on campus cafeterias and this one was particularly nice to Mo Zha Ta. Maybe he’s a cook? (cough cough) Cao Guang thinks Wei Wei’s avatar is Huan Tian Xi Di while it is actually Er Xi. I can see a lot of drama happening with this since Er Xi has such a negative opinion of Cao Guang at the moment.
The camera spends a lot of time on Xiao Nai’s facial expressions and I have to admit Yang Yang holds a stony face well. I’ve also learned that he is voicing Xiao Nai so it is his own terrible enunciation but the voice is deep and pleasing.
