Let’s get started with the review of fourth episode.

Plot Summary & Review

Ismail is after Aysegul to pack her stuff and move in with them. Aysegul makes one excuse after the other to dissuade him. At last, Ismail is convinced on one condition – that they eat dinner at their house.

He suspects that their marriage is a façade. So, Aysegul comes up with a plan, that they share the smallest details about their past so they don’t mess up anything at the dinner.

Elif gets a letter from a Milan based university. She meets up with Murat and excitedly tells him about Milan, but Murat says that he isn’t going to Milan now. Elif doesn’t like it so she calls Can. Why?

Aysegul asks Can a lot of questions about his past so that they don’t mess up anything during the dinner. They share their childhood photographs and stories.

Aysegul meets Murat to tell the story that she has recorded but she loses the voice recorder. Murat wants to buy her a new one but she says no. In her usual way, she blurts that Can forces her to do household chores. It confuses Murat but she runs away from there.

Aysegul buys a new dress just for the dinner with Can’s family. Mediha mixes “gold water” in Can’s glass. That water is supposed to change Can’s mind so he would leave Aysegul. Doh!

Mediha humiliates Aysegul by taunting at her dressing sense to her appetite. Aysegul starts to sing. It upsets Mediha and she drinks the “poisoned” water.

On the way back, they hang out, eat ice-cream and Aysegul takes her to her favourite cafe.

Elif and her girlfriends meet up in a restaurant and she sees Murat with a girl. It upsets her and she loses her mind. And, what does she do? She calls Can.

Can leaves Aysegul alone. She waits for him until the cafe closes. Aysegul takes a cab home. As she doesn’t have enough cash, she gives her locket as the cab fare.

Can drops Elif home. Later, Murat comes there to talk to her but she tries to kiss him. He stops her so she tries to kill herself.

The next morning, Aysegul shows tantrums because Can abandoned her. She goes to Efe’s house but they are visiting Can. Efe and Ece have no shame, so they barge into Can’s room and try his stuff.

Aysegul comes back, trashes them for crossing the boundaries and kicks them out. But she’s still upset with Can. Can helps her rescue Minak and they are friends again. They both look happy, a very subtle indication that they care for each other can’t be completely free if the other one is upset.

Aysegul and Can decide to go for a movie but Can gets a call from Elif that she’s in the hospital. Our lovestruck man goes crazy and rushee to the hospital.

REVIEW

This drama has so many layers, I can’t even begin to list them all. The comedy is in every scene and the romance is laced more with comedy and less with lust. Every time there is a cozy moment between Can and Aysegul, it is followed by some tongue-in-cheek comment by either of them. That’s very interesting.

Happy watching!
