Mei Yu puts her husband to bed. She then goes and checks the black box video from her husbands car. Only she had the camera turns towards the driver so she can monitor her husband. Turning the camera around is clever.
Everyone gathers to discuss the IOUs. The sum the lover loaned the ex-husband is large and she wants the ex-wife to pay half. That does not go over well. Luo Li asks to talk to our leading man, Chi Hai Dong, on the side. She tells him his client better drop his bogus IOUs. Hai Dong tells her to send him and his client to jail.
Mei Yu goes to her husband’s work to see if he’s really there. Embarrassed he takes her to his office. He apologizes for lying about being laid off from the previous job.
