Mini-Recap: Siren Episode 8

Siren_(Japanese_Drama)-p1So it is bound to happen that one of these days we will see how Tomi and Yuki met. And it took a hard fall on him for us to see how the two started! I must say Yuki was not cute at all in short hair. Urgh I prefer her in long hair. Am I too picky? Hehe I know what I want. While we get to see how their romance blossomed, I was wondering what was the drama they are watching? Anyone? *giggle*sirensirenOk, enough romance… Let’s move on with Siren episode 9! Tsukimoto is alive! Why did she keep him alive? What is Kara’s motive? Meanwhile, Watari is in jail. He consistenly defending himself that he attacked Tomi to protect Kara. Hayami told him that Tomi is on life support and Watari was stunned. Hayami seems ready to take on the case but Chief Ando said that they have to wait until Tomi is awake. Yes, only Tomi can tell the whole truth to Ando and his team. Ando reported the incident to Yuki’s dad.sirenI’m glad that Kara is keeping Yuki alive. Curious with Kara’s past, Yuki asks Kara to continue with her life story after killing her dad. The flashback shows a bunch of girls gossiping over Kara’s strange behavior in the past. She was seen as a crazy freak girl and with that title, the young Kara was determined to never fail on her death mission. In high school, a girl caught Kara’s eyes. Tachibana Kara. This Kara is a bit different than the current one. She has a mold on her chin and she is a bully victim. Kara and the real Kara hang out more since then. One day, the real Kara’s parent died from an accident. The fake Kara decided to steal Kara’s identity since she has no relatives now. And that’s how it happened. She wiped out her identity and stole Kara’s face. Tsukimoto was the responsible surgeon in transforming her into the new Kara. Volla! We never get to see how the true impostor looks like.

Back at Yuki’s home, her mom received a text message from Yuki’s phone. It was sent by Kara, obviously. And since it can be traced, she sent it while in the city. Now no one would suspect Yuki is actually missing. After being coma for a month, Tomi finally woken up. He gathered his strength and climbed out of his bed. Chief Ando was alerted and everyone rushed to see him. Tomi escaped in his hospital gown and headed directly to Yuki’s dormitory building. He wanted to see the address on the package. The package that was sent by Yuki to herself. From that, he realized that he’s been sleeping for a month. He fainted from his shock and woke up again in his hospital bed. He was told to stay in bed until he recovers from his injury. I can’t help but laughing at his stubborn but I don’t blame him. All he could think of was Yuki.siren2sirenTomi was shocked that Yuki is still missing. Hayami showed the text message forwarded by Yuki’s dad to the police. So now they are treating her case as runanway. Tomi said he fell into Kara’s trap and Ando asked why did he act independently. Tomi explained that he has no evidence but his intuition that guided him with the case. Ando shook his head when Tomi confessed that Yuki and him are in a relationship. He apologized for acting alone but showed the proof of mail to Ando that it is the only evidence he has on Yuki. Ando discussed Kara’s case and Yuki’s disappearance with his team and urged Hayami to interrogate Watari into spilling the beans.sirenKara met with police for questioning and after that, she went back to her car and said “it went well” to a person sat next to her. Who is that person? She took off an ear piece and handed it to whoever that is. Who directed her? Tsukimoto? Back to Tomi, he tries to escape with Ai  but was stopped by his doctor. She told him that Maya woke up. They rushed to Maya’s room but Maya slipped back into her coma. Tomi insisted of staying close to Maya and decided to hold her hand for hope. As he started talking, Maya responded when Kara’s name was mentioned. She eventually opened her eyes and said “she… killed.” And then we get to see flashback of all women killed in early episodes. Out of fear, Tomi thinks Yuki is next and rushes to Lake Kawaguchi.siren2On his way out, Tomi meet up with Watari and immediately attack him. He was furious and told everyone that Kara is a murderer. He dragged Watari into the elevator, closed the door on Hayami and demanded Watari on Kara’s location. The man was forced to spit out the location. On his way out, Hayami caught up with him so Tomi informed him that Maya is up from her coma. Tomi took his car and sped up with Ai.siren3Hayami thinks Tomi is delusional with Yuki’s location in Lake Kawaguchi. He also feels that there is nothing to report since Maya went back to her coma stage. But when he reaches the office, he realized that he is wrong once again. He figured out that the only person that knew his number is Kara. He immediately went to Ando and begged to issue a warrant on Watari’s villa. On what ground? Theft. Mobile theft. Hayami finally used his brain and linked up the case of missing Rena’s mobile with Tomi’s on the night Kara was “attacked” by Tomi. Gah… finally!sirenTomi and Ai arrived at the villa. On their way in, they saw something covered in bloody cloth. It turns out it was a statue. The place is full of booby traps. Tomi told Ai to go back to the car. Kara appeared from behind and pointed her gun on Tomi. They fought and Tomi was thrown out from the porch. Kara saw Ai but she thought it was Rena. She seemed confuse. Tomi took his chance by running away but she caught up. She took him back into the villa and made him entered a room through a secret kitchen door. He saw Rena tied and Kara got confused again. She asked who the other person was and he took his phone to call Ai. Sadly, Ai did not go back to the car. Rather she entered the house and hide underneath the kitchen sink with a stun gun.sirensiren2So when Tomi dialed Ai, her ringtone was heard. Tomi was frustrated but obliged to Kara’s demand. He was able to fool Kara and quickly took the stun gun from Ai and put it in his pocket. Kara asked him to open another side of the kitchen sink and Ai was visible to him and Kara. She asked him to tie Ai up. In the midst of tying her up, Tomi was able to make a quick move and stun Kara. She fell to the ground and he immediately tie her up. “8:36 pm. Tachibana Kara arrested.”siren3Tomi searched and found Yuki lying helplessly in the basement. He gave her water but she was still not up. He gave her a mouth to mouth and got her up. He moved her from the basement to upstairs and saw Kara’s tied body missing. Out of nowhere, Kara walked in and swung an ax to them. Thankfully Yuki was conscious, she took the gun hidden under Tomi’s belt and shot Kara! Is she dead? Is this the end of Kara? The police arrived to the burning villa. Now I’m confused. Who burned the villa?sirensiren2

Impressions on Siren Episode 8:

So many developments on this episode. First of all, why did she keep Tsukimoto alive? Does she have more work for him? Wait a second, remember Kara’s boxing partner? Bel said she may have went under the knife and transformed to Kara! Oh no way. And then the question comes to who burned that villa? The three of them were on the floor and Ai rescued Rena. So is this means Ai knows who did it? I can’t wait for the last episode!

  1. Great ep! I’m convinced that the boxing partner was the one who actually went in the police station and when she returned to the car she was talking to the fake Kara! But poor real Kara! No one to know she was missing! Very sad! It makes you wonder how often people like that disappear! I’m going to be sad about the last episode! This year was definitely the year for J-Dramas!!
