If the last episode of Descendants of the Sun was about the small moments, this one was about the small windows of time that allows our characters and those around them to see the world more clearly. The world is also seeing this drama quite clearly as it shot up 0.5% to 28.8%, mere percentage points away from the big three-oh.
Si-jin and Mo-yeon are developing nicely although Mo-yeon’s fear of losing him to his job still tends to dominate her emotions and behavior##. But the result of living and working in a disaster area means that no emotion can be left by the wayside or taken for granted. It’s good for her because she’d run from Si-jin forever if she hadn’t been exposed to real danger the the very real possibility of losing him. The danger helps her see through her window of fear into how she really feels.Her inadvertent confession at the end of the episode via will hopefully cut through the remaining barriers between them.
