Episode Summary

EDIT
Godai or Mitaka? A Woman's Heart is on the Line
AIRED:
Kyoko has three days left to decide whether she'll accept Mitaka's marriage proposal. Mitaka continues to remind her, but still gives her some distance. Asuna shows up and once tries to tell Kyoko not to go out with Mitaka anymore, but she's too reserved to say it. The following morning, as Godai is leaving early for work, Kyoko stops him and tells him to come home early. Godai agrees and heads off. Kyoko goes shopping to get food for their dinner later. On the way back she meets Asuna and her dogs yet another time, but Asuna still just chats about dogs. That evening Godai gets off work and is going to head home, but Sakamoto finds him and reminds him that they're supposed to be going to a mandatory class party that Godai can't afford to miss. Godai never gets the opportunity to cut out early. As for Kyoko she waits at home with a big meal and a bottle of wine for Godai, but he never shows up. The other tenants come to keep her company (and eat the dinner) and she finds out where Godai is, but she's still mad that he didn't call her. Soon it's morning and Kyoko realizes that she has to give her decision today. More than anything she wants Godai to come home and tell her not to get married, but she waits for nothing. After walking all the way from downtown Tokyo, Godai and Sakamoto show up at Ikkoku-kan around the crack of dawn. They find Kyoko outside sweeping the steps after having been up all night waiting for Godai, looking very tired and very disappointed in him. Godai drops a bunch of matchbooks and handouts from girlie bars and clubs that he accumulated walking around downtown. Kyoko calmly sweeps up the pieces, lights a match and sets them on fire before walking back inside. Later that day after Kyoko walks off to meet with Mitaka, the other tenants clue in Godai about what Kyoko has been going through lately while he hasn't been there for her. This comes as a complete surprise to Godai. Kyoko meanwhile is waiting for Mitaka but falls asleep. Asuna finds her sleeping so she and her dogs sit and wait. Mitaka sees this and can't go any further thanks to the dogs in his way. The dogs gang up on him and he goes into another seizure, missing his appointment with Kyoko. Kyoko wakes up many hours later to find that Mitaka never showed up.moreless
