Alright, let’s begin with review of İlişki Durumu: Karışık – Bolum 15 (Relationship Status: Complicated). For the cast and characters and reviews of previous episodes, read here. Let’s get started.
This episode roughly transaltes to part of episode 37 and episode 38-39 of Main Ayeshagul (Urdu dubbed).
PLOT SUMMARY & MY COMMENTARY
(Main Ayeshagul Urdu Episode 38)
Aysegul is now at Ece’s house. She dreams several versions of Can making fun of her. Ece knows thatAysegul needs to relax, so she takes her for yoga. Efe, Can’s loyal employee, tells him about their plans so Can can woo Aysegul.
Can meets Aysegul at yoga class. She doesn’t listen to him and he, in turn, says that he would never divorce her. Can drinks her worries. Efe listen to his sob stories and his philosophies about love. On the other hand, Aysegul talks about a different meaning of love. This scene is beautiful.
Efe brings Can home, so he could confess his love for Aysegul. He begs her to return to him. Aysegul agrees to give him one more chance. They meet a marriage counselor. Can pretends that all is fine, Aysegul blurts everything and things go haywire, again.
I like how Ismail and Madiha’s relationship is depicted. They both bicker but genuinely care for each other. She stops him from eating and drinking coffee. Things blow out-of-proportion and Ismail tells him that he didn’t like her initially but accepted her for Tehsin’s sake. Nice speech!
Handan meets Murat to discuss the movie projects that are now on-hold.
Murat fears that Aysegul with reconcile with Can. It upsets him. The man seems to be in love with her, for real. He does not have any confusion, unlike Can.
I also notice that the alarms that Can had installed don’t work all the time. Only when necessary. How convenient!
(Main Ayeshagul Urdu Episode 39)
Murat is now picking an engagement ring for Aysegul. Then, he calls her home and makes dinner for her. Wow, things are really moving.
Can is still in his “I won’t let you go to him” mode. He arrives at Efe’s house in disguise (what else is new, *yawn*).
What’s he doing there?
He steals all of Aysegul’s stuff but gets caught before he could escape. By the neighbours, I mean. When Aysegul finds out, she yells at him for stealing her stuff and he invites her over for dinner.
Wait, what? Two men cooking dinner for her. What a lucky girl she is!
That’s not all. He has hired a guitarist and singer for a romantic date. Even though she is touched by the big gestures, she doesn’t get swayed. You go girl!
Aysegul is crying and shouting at Can and she gets divorce paper signed by Can, because that’s what she wants.
At the same time, Elif is trying to poison Murat’s mind. Good, do it.
Murat is trying to contact Aysegul, which makes Can upset. Can signs the papers which makes Aysegul upset. Murat doesn’t let Elif in, which makes Elif upset. This episode is just crazy.
How much does Aysegul cry? Agreed, she looks pretty even when crying, but there should be a limit, no?
Too much drama. I have begun to get annoyed now. But I have 25 more episodes to watch. Again, I ask, why do I begin a Turkish series?
