Triumph in the Skies 2: Episode 7-8 thoughts

Episode 7

All right, this episode reveals the reason why Summer hates Jayden, Jim Jim showing interest in the Pre-Pilot Project (PPP) and Holiday is in HK!

Yay, I love watching the brothers. Their conversations are funny and they look really natural together. 
I love this part when Issac is making sure Sam is okay after he just bumped into Summer. He was peppering toothpicks into his food :D

In the airport, the trio (Issac, Roy and Coco) finally has ended their topic on worrying Sam meeting Summer. Roy will be the pilot flying to Taiwan, where he used to work. This is the first time he admitted the he has a girlfriend in Taiwan (I just knew about it, and I went like okay... until the next scene)

Wow, I didn't know that the girlfriend he meant earlier was actually girlfriends! Two of them!

If I'm not mistaken, the girlfriend everyone knows is the girl in the bottom picture. Initially he was spending his time with the girl in a beach until his girlfriend called. They met in another place where Roy has to pay extra to the taxi driver to overtake his gf's taxi. He vomited when he reached the location, LOL! Well, he still made it before the girl.

He gave really lame excuse when the gf questions him!

"Why are you wet?"
"Oh, there is a fountain. Did I look sexier?"

"Why is there sand as well?"
"The fountain sprays seawater"

This character of him reminds me of his character as Lo Sir in Mysteries of Love.

Looks like somebody is learning something from Jayden, haha!

Here we see Jim Jim again, a rowing athlete (if I'm not mistaken, correct me please)

His acting was really stiff here, or was it his character's requirement because he is always so polite and shy when he was surrounded by fans.

He was hiding in the airplane toilet after being surrounded by fans, a socially awkward?
Coco put him in First Class cabin after that to calm down the fans in the Economy class, and benefits Jim Jim as well.

He looked so shaken from all the fans! Hmm, I'm still curious about Jim Jim's personality.

While he was leaving the airport back in HK, he takes a look at the PPP poster. *hint hint*
Previously, he mentioned to his brother a.k.a coach that he wants to try something new besides being an athlete. Expect more from Jim Jim :)

Whenever Jayden around, he used to be really strict. Throughout the episode, Issac and Jayden develops really close bromance with each other. They interact in a more relaxing way, which I don't have to held my breathe for Issac.

After Jayden signed the PPP documents given by Issac (from Sam), he was taking a look on the PPP poster, the one that Jim Jim saw earlier. He left the cafeteria in a rush that he did not eat the cake a pretty cabin crew treated him.

He looked really serious and left the cafeteria after seeing the date on the poster, 10th November. He went all the way to the technician area looking for Summer's toolbox. Initially he wanted to leave a note for her, it was then he found out an antique watch who I guess used to belong to him. He took the watch happily and abort the idea of leaving the note.

Jayden then met Issac, asking him to help him to have the watch fixed, as he knew someone who fix antique watch.

Summer, still as cool as always, had no choice but to confront him when her watch went missing. Jayden denied the whole incident and challenged Summer to search the watch on him. Summer backed away from her brother and left. Issac still look so shocked that he has become part of the lie, was then convinced by Jayden everything is going to be all right.

Back at home, Sam has the same watch as the one Jayden took from Summer's toolbox. Sam's watch was a gift from Zoe.

"Not only they (Zoe & Summer) look alike, they even have the same taste in watch design"

A book fell from the rack when they were having conversation about Zoe.
Issac started to feel spooky again, LOL this guy damn bad luck!

Jayden then had Issac and Tracy's help in preparing a birthday party as a surprise for Summer on 10th November. All of sudden, Issac has become the sidekick for Jayden. 

Summer doesn't look surprise, indeed cooler than before without a word. Jayden gave him the watch which is working again, as a surprise for her.

Ah B then told Jayden that Summer's birthday was 11th October, and they already celebrated for her last month. It turned out to be a terrible mistake, which show how Jayden didn't pay much attention in his little sister. Couldn't blame why Summer hates him.

Summer took the working watch and dropped it into a jug of drinks.

Interesting part here, stories are slowly revealed here.

When Summer left the place, Jayden chased her asking why she has to treat him that way.
"Why can't you understand?" that's the first thing Summer asked.

She then revealed why she kept the watch unfixed. When she was barely 10 years old, Jayden left the house to join the military. She convinced Jayden for not leaving her alone and clinging on him. However, Jayden insists to leave and left Summer fell off with the watch. That was when the watch stopped at 2pm, until the day before it was fixed.

The watch constantly reminds her on the painful experience she had with her brother, who she couldn't forgive.

During the conversation, Issac was watching at the back. The mystery then no longer a secret.

The playboy has nothing better to do when his sister makes him sad.
Jayden tells different stories about himself whenever he was with different girl. 

Nobody in Skylette Airlines knows about Jayden's background because everyone has a different story version about him.

Issac took Summer's watch back. To get the watch running again, a new core (I think) was needed. Without hesitation, Sam offers his watch to help changed the core in Summer's watch. The watch is too antique that no shop sells a new one.

Sam mentioned something really meaningful here:
"If Zoe is here, she will do the same. Helping Summer will be my way of remembering Zoe"


Issac showed Summer the watch that was belong to Sam, but return the spoiled watch back to Summer without doing what Sam told him to. 

"I just want to show you this watch, which was belong to my brother. It was given by Zoe. I just want to say, watch is just an item, it was the link it has that matters. Being able to become siblings isn't easy. Appreciate the relationship"

The phrase quoted by Issac was something like that, but sounds more meaningful. I quoted this from my memory, sorry if it sounds way different.

This is my favourite scene of the episode!

Holiday is in Hong Kong, after she went missing in Episode 6.

She called Sam from afar, ran towards him, hugging him then she started to shake his head and shoulder vigorously! *shaken baby syndrome LOL*

Omg at her chicky voice when she loudly called Sam..

Sam let Holiday stays over his place, an act of his gratitude towards Manna when he used to stay over her place in London. 

"Your brother, Sam is always so serious and stiff. He looks like he put on Botox on his face" 
That was what Holiday told Issac when Sam went to get her a cup of tea (so formal English style how he presents the tea)

"This is the most high quality description I ever heard about my brother. Very good"

That is how the screenshot came about after the conversation, looking at Sam's reaction.

They started to interact, getting to know each other. Holiday as cheeky as always. Sam told Holiday not to disturb Issac because he is going to take his exam. He just passed a CQA exam and there are 6 stages of exam to go before he is qualify to be a captain.

Coco then supported Issac that he is going to pass all the test and become a captain at a younger age compared to Sam.

A sudden scene on Apple (by Toby Leung) back in the airport cafeteria. There are this fellas wanted to do some project regarding airport and their crews. Since Apple is famous of her story being a baby left at the airport and grew up here, they interviewed her.

The unnamed character by Stephen Hyuhn then become so nervous on her story that he spilled his coffee. Josie was there too during the brief scene. 

It stopped there, leaving more questions to the audiences.
Sorry to say, I don't like to watch Toby Leung :(

The final scene shows Holiday taking picture of airplane with Jayden driving passed her. The focus was on Holiday's bracelet, which has a key to open it. The key was once found in the jacket sold by Holiday in Paris by Jayden, and he took it with him. 

The episode ends with Holiday shouting at the aeroplane "I am coming!"

I love this episode because most of the scattered pieces of question are able put together to see a better picture. Even though, not as its best, I want to see how they progress. But, there are no pilot on the plane seen this episode..

Episode 8

This episode looks like a dedication episode for Roy and Heather, so many of their screen time. Other than that, we see how Holiday used to know Zoe before, just realized that she is Sam's wife.

In the last episode, Sam did briefly mentioned that every cadet and pilot needs to have their own "magic" or guide book to help them get through exams when he was talking to Issac. Holiday then sneaked into Sam's bedroom to look for the book, which might help her get through PPP interview.

Sam came back all of the sudden, leaving Holiday to create lame excuse on how she gets into his room. She quickly jumped onto Sam's bed and pretended that she went into the wrong room after going to the toilet in a dreamy state. 

Old-fashioned excuse, that a normal peep won't accept. Well, it was to add in the humor here.

I wish they would extend the scene when Jayden decided to let Issac to become the captain in-charge for the first time. 

Since Jayden is less popular among the male counterparts, Issac is the only guy he was really close to and how he helps him in preparing the oh-so-wrong birthday surprise. It is awesome when your boss let you take over his place to train you and give you a valuable lesson. Awesome.

The Captain will have to sit on the left seat. Jayden wants to train Issac to get used to control everything from the left side, which most of the new captain had their mistakes. Sitting at the captain's seat for the first time, Issac was looking for the launch button on the wrong side and then only he understands what Jayden meant.

After that, they didn't show how Issac handles the whole flight being the one in-charge. 

I don't know about others, I wish to watch more scenes like this.

The husband & wife, Heather & Tony met Roy in Kaohsiung, Taiwan although they are flying a different plane. For easier story development, they will always be neighbour in the hotel. 

When Roy realized the two were staying right next to him, he tried to abort the plan of having his girlfriend #1, Philis (the girl in bikini at the beach in Ep 7) at his hotel room.

Overly attached girlfriend Philis strikes!

When Roy trying his best to cancel the plan of meeting each other, Philis wants him to answer 15 questions of where did they date from the first date to 15th! As a girl, I don't think I remember mine either if I have one.. Haha!

Roy got all the places name right anyway!

Since Philis no longer joining him, he went around the streets to enjoy the delicacies in Taiwan. He stopped in front of a juice stall that sells guava juice, there he met Heather asking "You still want to detox your bowel?"

"No wonder you look so familiar, I remember you!"
That is what Roy replied..

Well, Roy and Heather used to work at the same airlines in Taiwan. 

Omg, a flirtatious guy like you don't remember seeing Heather before until this episode?

When he was flying with Captain Lee in Taiwan, the captain had him drank a cup of guava juice that eventually cause him to have diarrhea. He had a terrible time for not being able to leave to the lavatory until the flight has landed. Heather hands him a new pair of pants after his bouts of diarrhea.

Heather never revealed his secret ever since then.

Roy's phone was out of battery and still charging in his hotel room. So, he has to borrow Heather's to call Philis to report to her what he is doing and when he will call her again.

Back in the hotel, Tony was seen sleeping soundly from a lethargic flight (or jet lag?). Heather then packed her sexy lingerie back to her bag with disappointment. Her planned sweet holiday with her husband turn out not as what she expected. But it doesn't reveal much here. Hmmppp...

Roy's girlfriend #2 Joanne (by Skye Chan) gave him a surprise when she was supposed to reach the next day.

At the same time, Heather received a call from Philis (remember, Roy uses her phone to call Philis) that she will coming to look for Roy tonight. When Heather reached the beach, she had to point her phone at Roy to tell him he is in trouble. Then they had some conversation at the beach when Joanne went to Roy's room, Heather did hint that she had more experience in having planned stuff that eventually turned sour when Roy complained about handling 2 girlfriends.

Holiday still not giving up in looking for the "magic" guidebook Sam mentioned the other day. Finally she found the book entitled Cadet Note in one of the drawer. At the same time, she found the Sam and Zoe's wedding picture, which leave her in awe.

Back in her room, she was seen holding this Triangel (it is Tri-angel, not a wrong spelling of triangle haha!) saying "Who would have guess Sam is your husband"

If I'm not mistaken, this Triangel was seen in Triumph of the Skies 1 that belongs to Zoe, a gift from Belle to Sam, then to Zoe, no?

Holiday spends more of her time going to the airport to take photographs of the aeroplane after she gets bored reading notes and notes in preparation for PPP interview.

There is this one day that she saw Sam was holding Apple's hand having a walk, thinking he already found a new partner. She took out the Triangel, looked into the sky and said 
"Zoe, you don't have to worry. Sam has move on"

The flashback showed how Zoe came across Holiday's life. Both of them met in Hong Kong airport, both flying to London. But Holiday couldn't get a ticket and she will miss celebrating her boyfriend's birthday. Zoe overheard that and gave her ticket to Holiday.

Zoe asked Holiday whether did she trust fate.

Zoe gave Holiday her Triangel that will bring her luck of fate, telling her in case she happened to see her husband (who is Sam), tell him not to blame himself. 

Remember what Sam said in the previous episode when he wants to giveaway his watch?
"Zoe likes to help people around. She will definitely do the same if she is around" and much more.

Here we recap the personality of Zoe, who is so friendly and loves helping anyone regardless the outcomes. She sacrifices her ticket to see her husband to Holiday so she can meet her boyfriend, and she even present a gift from her husband to Holiday, hoping the doll will bring her luck!

Where can I meet friends like this???
Nevertheless, one of my favourite scene because there is Zoe!

Does that mean it is a wish from Zoe to Holiday that someday she will be fated Sam's partner? 
*hint hint*

Holiday then left the Triangel on the spot where she met Sam and Apple, saying that she already had her mission accomplished in helping Sam to find a new partner. She left the doll there, with the hope the next fated person will own it to continue the link of luck.

Who knows the next person who picked up the Triangel was Summer!

Back in Hong Kong, Roy just realized Heather & Tony stay in the same building where he used to stay. To thank how Heather helped him settle his triangle love, he offers to treat them his home cook dinner. Since they just reached home, he haven't got the time to tidy up the house. It ends up having a meal in Heather's and Tony's place.

The scene here is basically to show how lovey dovey Heather and Tony is, even in front of a friend, they aren't shy to show their affection to each other. 

Roy, now you found friends who stay nearer, no longer you'll see him eating at Sam's place anymore! Haha..

When I saw this scene, I went like "Girl, your bag!"

She was so excited to take photos of the aeroplane reflection that she threw her bag like that. 

Summer recognized her that she was the girl who left the Triangel behind. While she was taking picture, Summer appeared at the reflection of the car window. She become victim #2 (after Issac) thinking that this is the ghost of Zoe.

Summer returned the Triangel to Holiday without interrupting her being so excited taking pictures. 

Okay, now I see why she has to drop the bag in the scene, this is the reason behind it.

How she got so shocked when she saw Summer in the picture she took when she browsing all of them in her laptop. She spilled coffee on the Cadet Note, alamak!

She got even shocked when she found the Triangel in her bag, thinking that Zoe's soul was still with her. She covered the Triangel with a piece of paper!

Through the trios conversation here, Holiday just realized Sam and Apple is not dating. Sam adopts Apple when she lives in the orphanage last time. Apple is Sam's goddaugther!

When Holiday realized she made a big mistake, she prayed and apologize to Zoe that she couldn't help her to get Sam a partner since she herself is still in a mess!

In conclusion, I don't like this episode. Too much Roy-Heather story that doesn't seems to be very interesting. Holiday's story started to see a different turn, I am anticipating for her PPP interview in the next episode.
