Episode 33: Suspicious BeginningsCheng Jia Yang (Huang Xuan) sets up a lunch date with his mother Zhang Qiao Chu (Wu Mian). At first she does not want to go, but after Wen Xiao Hua (Zhou Qi Qi) tells her this will just provoke Cheng Jia Yang to use this as an excuse to avoid them later on, they go together. Gao Jia Ming (Vengo Gao) jokes around saying perhaps Cheng Jia Yang is announcing his marriage. Zhang Gin Bao (Li Hong Quan) also shows up. Cheng Jia Yang tells them he has consulted with a friend who works at the bank and questions his uncle Zhang Gin Bao where the 100,000 RMB went, not wanting Qiao Fei (Yang Mi) to be wronged for all these years. His uncle admits he lied and took the money because his son owed a massive amount of debt. Zhang Qiao Chu unwillingly apologizes to his son and Qiao Fei, but shows no change in attitude. On the car ride back, Wen Xiao Hua hints to Zhang Qiao Chu that if Cheng Jia Yang was not so successful in his career, he will learn to see clearly of those around him and Qiao Fei might show her true colors that way.
Wu Jia Yi (Nikki Li) and Wang Xu Dong (Leon Zhang) are at a bar drinking, but upon hearing Cheng Jia Yang is going, she immediately leaves, lying it is because she secretly likes him, to which Wang Xu Dong believes. Wang Xu Dong knows something is up with Wu Jia Yi, Qiao Fei, and Gao Jia Ming, thinking back to the time they rushed to get in a car. He decides to tell Cheng Jia Yang, sparking him to be suspicious that Qiao Fei is hiding something from him. He laughs at Cheng Jia Yang for becoming less financially stable because of Qiao Fei, but instead he says he feels richer and fortunate, knowing all the time he can spend with Qiao Fei later in the future. Wu Jia Yi realizes the masks that her friend gave Wang Xu Dong are very effective and ends up taking the 30 boxes as she had promised to pay back the 100,000 RMB she paid to the assistant director for the second lead role she never received. Having no recent jobs, she exclaims she should open a store specifically selling masks, with the popularity she has received on her Weibo account.
When Zhang Qiao Chu visits the institute, she sees Hao Zhe (Hou Jun Guang) storming out of Mr. Tian’s (Wang Hua Yang) office, mumbling Cheng Jia Yang’s name for destroying his name in the industry. Qiao Fei once again uses Wu Jia Yi as an excuse to not have dinner with Cheng Jia Yang. Feeling odd, he tells her he knows Wu Jia Yi has a meeting with Wang Xu Dong. Qiao Fei asks if he thinks they are incompatible, with so many arguments in between them recently. She says they need to prepare for the incoming troubles ahead of them, to which Cheng Jia Yang believes they already experienced life and death in Switzerland during the snow avalanche. Qiao Fei responds to Gao Jia Ming that she will be at his apartment shortly, after Cheng Jia Yang leaves.
