9 episodes in and someone has finally mentioned the NHL! Yes.

I think the break did me good, but I still like Aki more than anyone else. I suspect this is not at all a typical reaction, but really though Halu is rather smashing until he actually showed some emotion and freaked out on evil architect boyfriend I was not madly convinced by him. As for architect boyfriend, um, you know, when you love people and go off to work for their good there is a thing called the phone. You use it to phone people and stay in touch so THEY KNOW YOU LOVE THEM AND DON'T THINK THEY'VE BEEN ABANDONED.


ETA: I also should add that I saw Yutaka Fukufuji play his one and only game so far in the NHL. It's the first time a Japanese born player played in the NHL. It was also the first time I've seen what was a 4th (or 5th?) string goalie actually play in an NHL game.

ETA 1: New coach also appears never to have noticed quite how many NHL players have wives and kids and balance that well with playing hockey. This is not a religious order!

ETA 2: Oh, for the ending. And yay for Aki. I am sorry but I quite love her and her dignity, tattered though it may be at times. The scene in the last episode where she turns the television off rather than see the photo or find out the actual truth? And it's not because she's weak but because she wants to maintain her balance and her dignity as far as she can. She is really like someone of the last century. (Can you tell I've always secretly approved of the Victorian art of repression?)
