Now, more than ever, I need the sweet escape of TV drama as a reminder of a time when we weren’t in the throes of a pandemic. Although the past few episodes of “Terrace House: Tokyo 2019-2020” were hard to watch, this episode delivered more than enough heartwarming charm to pull me back into the show.

Kai has seemingly been doing some self-reflection since the “Case of The Costume Incident” because the next night, he sits Hana down for an honest conversation. He apologizes again for ruining her wrestling costume and admits, “I had no concept of thoughtfulness or gratitude for the people around me.” Even though he can’t replace her outfit, he promises to work hard to pay her back. Then, he adds that he would like to revisit the possibility of them becoming close again. Hana accepts his apology but she doesn’t look ready to be friends with him again just yet.
