Gun asks Cher if Jack has said anything, to which he replies no, he hasn’t; Gun explains that Jack had been worried about him and had called Gun asking him if he had seen Cher.

Gun falls asleep while watching Cher stream.

The following day at the gaming café Jack comes in and asks Cher if he has talked to Gun about the game, to which Cher replies that he did mention it and Gun had promised to speak with Thime. Zo tells them that the game teaser that Jack had given him to play is shockingly the same as what Thime has.

One of the friends advises them to investigate, and when they have a good answer, to tell Gun. That evening as Cher prepares to sleep, Gun texts him that he is out of town and will not be back until the following day. He tells Cher to go ahead and sleep.

Gun excuses himself and heads back into his office. Porsche offers to pay for the office’s lunch. They head out, but Cher is still pissed off and Jealous, he plays around with his food, and when Gun asks him what is wrong, he ignores him and goes to the toilet.

Gun follows him there and asks how he is, but Cher ignores him and returns to their table. Later as they are about to leave, Jack and Aoi leave Cher in Gun’s car. Cher tries to open the door, but Gun has put it under the child lock. He asks Cher why he is angry, and Cher replies that he no longer feels vital in a confident person’s life.

In the meantime, during their gameplay, Cher is absentminded and does not participate in the game which makes Three angry, and he storms out. Jack asks him if it is about Gun, but Cher brushes it off and leaves. At Three’s house, Zo tries to calm him down and faints from a fever.

A concerned Jack tells Cher to be careful because he might get hurt. That evening, as Cher prepares his noodles, someone knocks on his door, and he thinks he is hallucinating when he sees Gun.


The Episode Review

Sometimes being friends with an ex will not add value to the current relationship. Gun needs to explain to Cher who Porsche is to him, even if they are best friends. It is clear that Porsche’s presence brings out a jealous streak in Cher and feelings of inadequacy, while Jack has every right to feel concerned.
