Jin Yan thinks Yao Yao is “cute.”
Despite Xun Ran’s warning, Yao Yao decides to go to the welcoming party. Equipped with the high tech from Zi Yu, Yao Yao is ready for some investigation! Woot woot! Cue spy music.
Jin Yan: [while putting on earpiece] How come I can’t get it in?
Yao Yao: Let me do it. [while shaking her head] Can it fall in?
Jin Yan: Yes, it can, so don’t shake your head randomly while eating.
Zi Yu and Jin Yan drop her off at the Pei Ze’s place. The two men wait in the car while she heads up. Before she goes though, they give her a pep talk…erm sort of.
Zi Yu: We can solve this case in many ways, so we don’t need you to probe too much to lock on a suspect. Safety is the priority tonight. Don’t ask too many questions. Don’t cause people to suspect you, ok?
Yao Yao: I know, you are so naggy!
Jin Yan: Don’t be nervous, they won’t be so stupid as to kill you tonight.
Yao Yao: Are there people who encourage others like that?
Zi Yu: Yao Yao, remember, it is raining.
Yao Yao: [looks out window…in a parking garage] It’s not raining.
Zi Yu: No, this is the safety phrase. Once you say that we will run up immediately.
At dinner, Pei Ze sits right next to Yao Yao and puts the moves on her – saying she is blushing and taking a picture of her. SO UNCOMFORTABLE. And of course, Yao Yao feels that way too so she escapes to the bathroom to uh… search for drugs. While poking around she finds a plastic bag in the water tank, but before she can pull it out, Pei Ze knocks on the door and she has to come out.
Once she is out, other guests begin to leave with only her, Pei Ze, Xue Qing and her assistant manager lover guy remaining. Pei Ze tells the other two to clean up and he invites Yao Yao on a tour of his house. Uh-oh.
Soon enough the other two exits and Yao Yao is left alone with Pei Ze. He shuts off the light and pulls out a cart. And then he trips over her, both tumbling to the ground. She tells him to get up, but he asks for a kiss first. In a moment of panic, she calls out “it’s raining!” Of course, by this time, Jin Yan is already speeding up the stairs.
Zi Yu rushes in only to find Pei Ze unconscious from a needle in his neck. Don’t worry! It is just anesthetic. Jin Yan pulls the cloth over the cart to uncover … a cake. Apparently it is Yao Yao’s birthday and Pei Ze wanted to surprise her. Zi Yu panics, saying that they have now caused a lot of trouble, but dude, I don’t think Pei Ze was THAT innocent to begin with.
Anyway, Jin Yan hands Yao Yao a taser and leaves her alone to wait for Pei Ze to wake up. The taser would be her explanation when Pei Ze asks how he passed out, but seriously, she probably could’ve gotten that a little earlier, don’t you think? I mean she was in imminent danger! Oh, and that plastic bag in the water tank? A load of cash. Zi Yu suspects it is dirty money from dealing drugs but who knows?
Pei Ze wakes up suddenly (that anesthetic wears off FAST) and Yao Yao is all freaked out. He won’t let her leave… but it’s only because he wants her to cut the cake. So she does and he takes her home. As she is about to leave the car, he pulls one of her hair off to keep as a “repayment” for tasering him. Thin Man from Charlie’s Angels anyone? Also, super creepy.
The next day, the police aka Xun Ran brings all the employees in for investigation. Everyone denies any wrong doing and they all seem to have an alibi. However, Xun Ran slowly breaks them down. First, Manager Lin says she was sleeping during the time of murder, but she was in fact on the phone with Pei Ze. She quickly admits that she just wanted to fire Wan Wei, not kill her. Then, Xun Ran points out the hole in Assistant Manager’s story – he said he had his curtains drawn so he couldn’t see out, but Xue Qing had said earlier that she saw the light was off in Wan Wei’s room. Finally, the Assistant Manager admits that he saw Wan Wei enter Pei Ze’s room. Faced with these evidence, Pei Ze admits that he controlled Wan Wei with drugs and she did stop by his room that night.
Yao Yao brings this news to Jin Yan, but he asks her to tell the police to hold off on releasing the news of finding the real murderer. Why? Because he wants to use this to bring out the big boss behind it, the one that is watching him. So his plan? Round up all the employees and reenact the day of crime!
