The following is not a recap but a commentary on the particular episode in the title. Major spoilers and Ruco Chan-love alert. Originally posted at www.point2e.com.
Obligatory eyecandy pic of the day …and I am generous so I let you choose…
A lot of Ruco eh? Even ASTRO agrees because you now have double dose of Ruco, both 9.30pm, both starring a few same people in similar roles and one of which is my fave of the year and the other maybe will be, yes you have in one channel Eye In The Sky and the other Ruse Of Engagement. Both awesome titles!
Too much Ruco love?
Ha! Even Kevin agrees! Of course in Eye In The Sky, Kevin has to choose between his true love (Ruco) and constant love (KFC, perpetually on his table). Of course one is considered narcissistic incestous love since Kevin basically loves Kevin now looking like Ruco, his brother.
As for the story tonight, lots on Tavia and her investigating from a delinquent not so teen girl to a missing not so teen girl and the connection to a terrifying case of a body of a young woman who was kidnapped 5 years ago and was basically tortured for 5 years and then ran over by a taxi.
And what does it have to do with Eye In The Sky? Absolutely nothing. What does it have to do with the tale of the twin brothers? Also nothing. Just a plot to let Tavia do something and have reasons for her to hang around one brother to realise she is in love with him and for the other brother to hang around her to realise he is in love with her. Whose who, you guess.
Back to plot proper, Ruco still wants to find the necklace. Why? I suppose hatred? I mean man, you got a new face, a good job, a good friend in your bro, why still live a life of crime when you can wash your hands off a life of crime? Well… he doesn’t like his new face and Ruco is destined to have this conflict with his brother. Tellingly his brother told him he arrested his best friend in school for a murder, since even if they were best friends, his best friend committed a crime. YEAH but Ruco, that was best friend and it was murder. Yours was arson and burglary and you’re his long lost twin brother who had such a hard life which could have been him instead of you. Guilt trip him to shut up! Of course, no story then. So why not switch to Ruse Of Engagement in 7 episodes and watch that instead? Big spoiler; no happy endings there. So will we have happy ending here like Brother’s Keeper even if it was around 20 years too late? Well Sam didn’t end up with Rachel, that to me is a happy ending.
Anyway basically not much to say for this episode because 90% was irrelevant although I am beginning to think KFC maybe has a huge part in the twin conspiracy.
P/S To Ta-Co fans (Tavia-Ruco) who has been envious of Ke-Ta (Kevin-Tavia) pairing, there is a cute scene here about espresso and coffee and some tongue twisters between Ta-C0 although tongue twisters were uttered and not …. done to one another.
Other than that, quite a nice episode except it really isn’t Eye In The Sky.
Oh I am running out of Ruco pictures from Eye In The Sky. It seems no one is screencapturing all his moments thus far, or maybe I am not looking hard enough.
