If you were Susan, would you choose Mike or Ian?

Watched Desperate Housewives on TV last night. Hubby and I rarely watch TV nowadays, and one of the sitcoms that we watch is DH. :)

So, anyway on the episode yesterday, Susan had to make a decision.

Both Mike and Ian are as her daughter put it… madly in love with her. And, she loves both of them too. She fell in love with Ian when she thought Mike was in a coma. Now, she has to choose only one. At first, she chose Ian, because she made a promise to him. Ian was overjoyed. However, his happiness is shortlived. Because he heard Susan listening to a voice message left by Mike, bidding farewell. He could sense that Susan is still deeply in love with Mike.

He did what he felt was the honourable thing to do. He let her go.

He said, “I cannot stand the thought that every time you have the faraway look on your face, I will be wondering if you are thinking of him. Susan, you deserve to be happy. I deserve to be happy too.” And he packed up.

There are quite a lot of things that led up to this. Ian proposing to Susan when he found out that Mike intended to so before he lost his memory. Mike and Ian agreeing to bet in a game of poker… whoever who lost, will have to stop contacting Susan. Mike lost. But he broke the pact, he met up with Susan, grabbed her and kissed her. And hence reliving her memories about their time together.

There are 2 sides to this I guess… on one side, Mike really loves her, and hence could not give her up. On the other side, he is not exactly very honourable, as he broke the pact. Another question, if Mike really loves her, then shouldn’t he let her go? Because she probably will have a better life with Ian. Before Mike came barging back, and giving her that kiss, Susan was contented, and happily engaged to Ian.

And based on what has happened so far in the various episodes… Ian seems to be better for Susan… he is more matured and more stable. Mike on the other hand seems more like the ‘bad boy’.

If you are Susan… would you have chosen Mike or Ian?

    If I am Susan, I would choose Mike cos its obvious that they are madly in love but its just bcos of the coma incident that they couldnt be together.

    But realistically (like money and maturity), she should choose Ian but I guess she wont love Ian as much as Mike.

    So it boils down to, love or money??

  2. Hi Quieter,

    Welcome to my blog! :)

    Thanks for your comment. It’s abit like the ‘Meteor Garden II’ twist. They were meant to be together in the beginning, so they should stay together despite the eventual circumstances. However, nobody can predict whether she has made the right choice. But with anything in life, I guess we have to make the choice, and eventually live with it, even though along the way, we found out that maybe we should have gone with the alternative. :)

    Sincerely,
    Violet
