Last episode, we were bombarded with new roommates joining the house, and now it’s time to see how Vivi, Tupas and Kai are settling in. It’s clear that everyone loves Vivi, and who can blame them? Well, everyone but Hana, probably, because that ray of sunshine is after her man.

The drama kicks off when Ryo comes home from a basketball game with a twisted ankle. Seeing him hobbling around with crutches and feeling pitiful, Hana jumps into nurse mode and begins tending to him. Unfortunately, Vivi is too powerful a rival for Hana’s Florence Nightingale act because, even though they just met, Ryo and Vivi quickly bond over their tales of moving to a new country without speaking the language (the United States for him, Japan for her), while Hana pouts in the kitchen. Not only that, when asked why she decided to join “Terrace House,” Vivi says she came to look for a life partner (while also living in a fun environment). Sounds like her goals align with Ryo’s since he previously said that he wants to marry the next woman he dates.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
