The dialogue between Rex and Bree in this scene is extremely intense and heart-wrenching. After reading it, I just can’t help but shudder at the madness and despair that is brewing and fermenting within it. The cruel competition and the terrifying gossip projected in the drama are truly relatable and striking.

A woman who strives for perfection in every aspect and places great importance on her image, experiences the piercing pain of her husband’s infidelity, which has caused a stir throughout the city. To make matters worse, she is informed that her perverted sexual escapades with her  Rex have been exposed by her irresponsible and undependable husband, with every sordid detail vividly described.



Most men lead their lives in quite desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.

The wound that was already difficult to heal was ruthlessly salted again. The persona/identity that Bree had carefully crafted over half of her life, along with her honorable reputation, collapsed entirely. The devastation of hard-earned possessions all went up in smoke was more heart-wrenching than drawing water with a porous basket. When Bree returned home, she collapsed in front of the window, feeling cold and numb. The despair of being unable to shed a tear was more chilling than a storm about to break. It gave the sense of an impending bloodbath before a raging storm.

Under the shroud of darkness and despair, Rex appeared as if his days are numbered while Bree was like a candle flickering in the wind, barely hanging on to life. Everything was set up just right for our leading lady Bree to achieve transcendence and rebirth, in order to achieve that, she needed to discard her fully compromised ethical, her moral consciousness as well as the values that she holds in high regard for the first-half of her life. The final outcome was a depressed relief, in which completed the spiritual redemption of Bree through the death of her husband Rex. The show did not preach but rather used a calm and objective tone through the deceased character’s narrative. This led devoted viewers into contemplation and, to some extent, allowed the mass majority who strictly adhere to the rules to emotionally resonate and release, while inspiring and alerting those who have gone astray.
