This episode was incredibly sad. I know it's hard for parents, particularly single parents, to let go when their kids get older and want some independence so that was already painful to watch, but the reveal of what had happened to Ai as a child was heartbreaking.

I'm glad that Ai finally took Trey's advice and went to watch the sunrise by herself. At least she was able to finally able to enjoy the cruise and realize that she could do things without her kids. Better late than never!

Huh. It's interesting that the synopsis specifies that Ai is a "Singaporean mother." This is one of the episodes not based on a story published in Epic, and it looks like the family of writer/director, Tze Chun, is "from Hong Kong/China/Singapore/Malaysia." But there was absolutely nothing in the ep -- not Ai's accent, not the circumstances of her last -- that was coded as Singaporean.

Heh. I imagine he taught some Soulstice classes on board the ship.
