Win thanks Dean for calmly managing Win’s drowning incident and deleting the video evidence from the CCTV files. The tryouts start and Win is worried for Team as he sees him dive into the pool.
Dean asks Win to introspect and understand why he was feeling so worried for Team and claims that he is in love with the junior. Win shares his feelings from the night before when he found Team was drowning and tells Dean how he feels he is not good enough for Team because he did not believe in love. Deam tries to convince Win to stay with Team if he felt for him but Win leaves the swimming area to be alone for a while.

Tul accidentally slips up that he is Waan’s online friend but Waan fails to latch on to it. At the same time, Team goes to sleep with Win but finds it locked and gets upset as he crashes at the door.
The Episode Review
This episode was so different from Win and Team’s story that we already know about. The traumatic incident Win had experienced probably had a lot of impact on him as a child that causes him to experience nightmares so often despite his bubbly personality.
I am a little taken aback by Win’s sudden confusion as this plot point is very different from what we saw in Until We Meet Again. We had no introduction to Win’s unwillingness to love, even in passing and I think that makes it a little unnerving.
Despite all that, I am enjoying the chemistry Win and Team share and we all know that at this point, their foreheads are attached. The side couples are really interesting as well and I am enjoying Manow and Phruek’s chaotic relationship a lot.
I can already sense that Bee and Prince would have an emotional story and I am not looking forward to being sad because Win and Team are messing with my emotions already.
