**June 2024- I've had several people ask where they can watch Cesur ve Guzel (The Brave and Beautiful) with English subtitles. A quick Google search shows it is on DailyMotion (with ads). My blog post 'Where to watch Turkish Drama with English Subtitles' has some additional options and tips on how to search DailyMotion.

First things first:

•Episode timestamps may be off depending if your episode includes the opening credits. •Timestamps of romantic scenes are highlighted in pink. Other scenes not to miss (poignant, funny, great acting, etc) are highlighted in green.

•Tip: To quickly move through footage to find a key scene, click on the gear or speedometer at the bottom of the screen. You can slow down scenes as well. (Feature not available on Vimeo.)

•I tried to include all the timestamps for each noted scene, but I may have missed a few so search a little after the initial clip as oftentimes a scene is “interrupted” by another scene.

•Disclaimer: This guide is full of spoilers!

•If you want to watch a quick recap of the romantic moments of Cesur and Suhan, watch this short video :)

Cesur comes bursting out the burning house with Korludag over his shoulder just as all of the Korludag family arrives to witness the heroic deed. In the process, Cesur is slightly burned and is invited to stay at Korludag manor until the fire can be cleaned up.

She only cooks once in a blue moon.” (So it's obvious she's doing something special for him.) He also snaps her dress closed at the cleavage, which is a nod to the opening scene when he got a big peek down her shirt when they fell off the horse.

-12:15 Tender moment when Suhan apologizes for misjudging Cesur.

-20:00; 57:00; 1:37:00 Suhan starts investigating everyone and everything. She just wants the unbiased truth. She senses that something isn't quite right with Cesur—he's hiding something. She just can't put her finger on it, and because he is so charming and she is attracted to him, she has a hard time standing her ground.

-38:00 He tells her, “do me a favor; don't run to Bullant to get away from me.”

-1:22:00 Cesur and Suhan are having lunch. He looks up and says, “You're looking at me with admiration and not eating.” She says, “Maybe when I look at you I lose my appetite.” He replies, “This only happens if you're in love.” More of his background is revealed, and he and she get somewhat closer, though she still doesn't trust him. At the end of the scene he says, “I'll make sure not to hurt you.

Episode 6

-Opens where episode 5 leaves off-- C's mother getting “rescued” by Korludag. At the same time, Cesur tells Suhan, Don't spy on me. If you want to know about something, just ask. But when you ask, you're going to have to be brave [to hear the truth].

-12:45 Korludag suspects who Fugan is and frantically starts investigating to find out what happened to the wife and son of the man he stole the paintings from--the man whom Adalet shot.

-12:00 Cesur tenderly comforts and calms his mother. (We get a childhood flashback of him too). When Mom is calm, he turns around and sees Suhan standing at the door. So she sees how tender and sweet he can be.

-26:00 Cesur dances with Suhan at Shirrin's wedding.

-1:09:00 Cesur makes dinner for Suhan and his mom. Out of the blue, Fugan recalls about her husband, “That first day...he said to me, you know that one day you will marry me?” Suhan recalls Cesur said that to her too.

-1:20:00; 1:25:00 Flashback--we see how Cesur learned that Korludag killed his father. Suhan is sad as she hears this 'truth.' He says, Remember what I told you the other day? You'd need to be brave to hear the truth. [This is the truth.] She says she thinks he is looking for the killer in the wrong place. He says, “Ok.” She says, “I think you won't give up so easily.” He replies, “I don't want to fight with you.” {{Almost kiss}}

-1:45:00 Suhan tells Bullant she doesn't see a future for them together.

-1:57:50 A company vote (over what, I did not understand-maybe that the company go public instead of private?) but in the end only Bullant voted with Korludag, so the vote went the way Cesur wanted it to. Again, he is drawing people to his side, away from Korludag.

-2:07:00- End Korludag announces that he married Adalet.

Episode 7

-Opening: At a celebration over the company vote going Cesur's way, Suhan tells him she returned the ring to Bullant. Cesur says, "You did the right thing. I am very happy." She says, "It had nothing to do with you." He says, “Do you still think so?” After her father announces his marriage to Adalet, Suhan leaves, crying. Cesur says he can't leave her like this—he'll take her wherever she wants to go.

-6:37; 9:45; 17:00; 19:42; 31:26; 40:18; 52:14, 1:03:15; 1:09:42; 1:17:30; 1:22:05 Cesur takes Suhan to Istanbul so she can "drink all night." Drunk, she opens up about her pain of losing her mother. He throws her over his shoulder, gets her showered, then puts her to bed. One of my favorite scenes in whole show--wonderful, romantic, and funny moments.

-1:25:37 Cesur tears up over his mother's condition.

-126:29 Cesur dreams Suhan comes to him in the night.

-1:38:23 Suhan's dad goes to the Istanbul house and tries to woo Suhan back home.

-13:10; 16:51; 23:08; 26:42 Suhan confronts Cesur in the hospital and he tells her the truth about her father. She doesn't want to hear it. Poignant scene. And Kivanc plays a groggy man so well I wondered if he took a sedative ! (At 1:10:10 as well)

-34:15 Fugan sees the pictures painted by Cesur's father at the Korludag mansion.

-47:12; 50:07 Turan almost shoots Bullant.

-1:05:44; 1:10:13 Suhan recalls what Cesur told her at Shirrin's wedding—that she would need to be bold when she heard the truth. Suhan, now even more suspicious of Cesur and doubting his affection for her, finds out he has had photos of them framed. She is touched and surprised.

confronts her father.

-1:29:20; 1:35:00 Cesur comes home from hospital early (unexpectedly) and finds Suhan in his bed. The next morning, she has words with him and leaves.

-A lot of stuff hits the fan and there are numerous reveals/revelations/resolutions.

-1:51:36 Cesur overhears Shirrin telling Kamal that Suhan said she loved Cesur.

-1:55:26 Preparation for New Year's Celebration at Korludag farm.

-2:04:23 [Cesur has been gone for 10 days] Suhan receives a note from Cesur. He says, “As you suggested I went far away. But I'll come back with answers before the end of tonight.”

-2:10:00 Cesur shows up at New Year's Eve Party

-2:12:50-End New Year's Eve: He gives her back her horse, tells her he loves her, and reads a love poem his father gave to his mother. Very romantic. The best translation is at Hinto.

-9:05 Cesur is jailed.

-1:47:08; 1:51:13; 1:56:09 Cesur and Suhan picnic by the sea to just be "themselves"--not Cesur (the man hunting Korludag) and Suhan (Korludag's daughter). They reveal more of themselves. He tells her again that he loves her.

2:01:00; 2:10:17-End: Car rolls over with both of them in it.

Episode 10

-Opening: Replay of car rolling over. Then they escape the burning car. Very well done. Biggest "action" scene of the whole series. Worth watching.

-13:00 She finds out her father really is a baddie (that he sabotaged Cesur's car with intent to kill), and she is angry and sad that her father is really 'that bad'.

-19:10 Sweet moment when he says, “See what I do for the opportunity to hug you?”

-21:20; 28:00 They check into a hotel, then go to her hotel room and discuss their situation. He asks her to trust him.

-1:04:00 Sherrin and Kamal are arguing. She unlocks the car (as if to leave), he locks it (as if to say, no, you're not going anywhere). It's funny, sweet, and sad all at once.

-Cesur has been slowly winning members of the Korludag clan, one by one. He just took a big step closer to winning Suhan.

-Lots of screen time for C and S in this episode : )

Copyright @ 2017 by Ginger Monette

Episode 11

-Opening: Repeat of the ending of episode 11 with Suhan learning that it was her father who kidnapped her.

-5:45 Cesur shows Suhan the paintings he “stole” from her family's houses. He says, “Do you still want to marry me?”

-12:14 In the car, he teases her saying, “If you insist on marrying me, I surrender.”

-19:00 Sweet little scene where Cesur massages Suhan's neck, and she tries to come to terms with all that has happened in the last 24 hours (they went on picnic, had a wreck, she 'saved him' from downing, she was kidnapped, she found out the truth about her father, she proposed to Cesur.)

-23:15; 24:41; 30:07; 33:30; 41:43; 49:00; 50:40; 51:47; 56:00; 59:16; 1:04:42; 1:06:26 they prep to get married (photos, blood test, haircut, clothes). Some sweet moments.

-25:33 Bullant makes his first move on Bano, Cesur's attorney.

-44:00 Suhan has a flashback to how her brother was sad that their mother missed his wedding. Now she is sad as her mom is also missing her wedding.

-46:19 Shirrin and Kamal reconcile their little spat. We see a little romance between Cesur's mother and father.

-1:08:45; 1:10:46 Cesur and Suhan marry in a very rocky ceremony. She loves Cesur but can't admit it as she still doesn't fully trust him.

-1:18:00 Korludag nearly has a heart attack hearing the news that Suhan married Cesur.

-1:29:11 Cesur and Suhan go to police station to give a testimony about Suhan's kidnapping.

-1:35:04; 1:38:00; 1:41:00 Cesur and Suhan return home after wedding, celebrate with his mom, Shirrin, and Kamal. Her father has the power cut off to their house.

- 1:46:03; 1:49:02 “One day it will be a real marriage and you will love me very much.”

-1:53:00; 2:03:51 Night of wedding, Bano (drunk) calls Suhan and says, "I hate you! You ruined Cesur's life and sidetracked him from his revenge of Korludag."

-1:53:55; 1:58:49; 2:02:44 Jaida sows more seeds of discord to cast suspicion on Cesur, and Suhan believes it.


-More stuff hits the fan. Korhan and Suhan are both torn between loving/hating their father. One minute they trust Cesur, the next they don't.

-2:05:00 Wedding night.

-1:50:00- end. The ending is very confusing. The intimate scene at the end is presented as a flashback. But when you see it, it's unclear if it's a flashback or wishful thinking. I believe the chronology of events should be: wedding night phone call from Bano; Suhan goes to Cesur's room and spends the night. Next day: Suhan finds out some incriminating things about Cesur, and Jaida sows seeds of dissension, making Suhan regret the intimacy with Cesur. I assume the producers needed to end the episode with a 'wow' factor, so they saved the intimate scene for the end and presented it as a flashback rather than showing it in “real time.” It was poorly done, and less than perfect translation made it more confusing.

Episode 12

-50:00 Korludag makes all of Suhan's employees walk out on her.

-56:00 Bulant finds the paintings Cesur stole, and Cesur ends up calling the police in an attempt to force a court hearing where Korludag would have to testify how he got the paintings and admit that the couple in one painting is not really his parents but is Cesur's grandparents. The whole thing creates a lot of 'table turning'.

-1:03:00 Suhan goes into a rage and starts breaking everything in her glass factory and gets REALLY angry at Cesur, blaming him for numerous things (wire under saddle, fire, 'ruining' her life). Well done!

-1:14:33 Now calm she says, in the end of this war, I will suffer. A second later he says, I will suffer too. She says, please stick with the intent of this marriage (punish my father). He promises not to repeat 'last night' (the intimacy). Sweet.

-1:34:40 After Suhan listens to Cesur's mom recount her marriage, Suhan is sad knowing how Fugan would despise her if she knew Suhan was Korludag's daughter. Suhan says to Shirrin, “Can Cesur forget everything [that my father has done] when he looks at me?”

-1:44:23; 1:45:30 She lays down on bed with his coat because it smells like him and makes her feel like he's there. She finds something in the pocket...

-2:01:44 Cesur hangs his father's paintings in his house.

-2:02:45; 2:06:02 Cesur and Suhan have a chat in a horse stall—she tells him she will not be home on her birthday, Feb. 14. He is clearly disappointed and puts something back in his pocket...and then back in the drawer.

-2:17:00 Korludag comes to Cesur and Suhan's door.

Episode 13

-Opening: Korhan catches Hulia conspiring with Jaida.

-6:24; 15:23 Suhan's father comes to their house to intercept the postman from delivering an important message. To cover himself, Korludag says he came to see Suhan because he missed her. He ends up leaving after a tense exchange. The whole thing upset Suhan. She wants to believe her father might come because he missed her, but in truth she knows he was lying, but just doesn't know what about. Cesur tries to comfort and reassure her, but she doesn't allow him. He's been trying to give her a ring, but every time he tries, things go sour between them.

-29:07; 35:07 Cesur figures out Korludag came to the door to intercept something from the postman and goes on a quest to find out what.

-32:54 Several of Korludag's henchmen are dethroned from their jobs—police chief, etc.

-37:42 Cesur calms the fears of the townspeople.

-46:33 Korhan visits Suhan at work and pins some blame on Cesur. Suhan voices the painful situation she is in—wanting to believe both her father and Cesur because she loves them both. Korhan is Suhan's true ally. The only one who truly loves her with no ulterior motives.

-48:26 Cesur gets her employees to come back to work

-49:16 Cesur sees photos of Nazli on his camera and gets an idea..

-55:00 Cesur takes dinner to Suhan at her office and gives her the ring. She's very matter-of-fact when he gives it to her, but when she walks away, she looks at it and smiles so you know she is really pleased even though the didn't show him she was pleased.

-57:23; 1:03:17; 1:09:06 Korludag hires henchmen to vandalize the town and burn a building on Korludag's farm, then blames it on Cesur.

-1:12:00 Suhan is having a hard time accepting the truth about her father. Cesur tries to console and comfort her.

-1:18:00 Cesur's mother makes a comment about not wanting Cesur to surrender like his father. This makes Cesur wonder if his father really did commit suicide.

-1:22:00 Suhan goes to talk to her dad, and he basically says if you align yourself with Cesur, then you are not welcome here. Korhan takes her to the door and says, “If Cesur loves you, ask him to give up his revenge on our father.”

-1:30:00 Suhan burns her hand. After Cesur tenderly puts ointment on it, Suhan says, “If you love me, would you give up taking revenge?” After a long pause he

replies, “I don't love you.” She's devastated. He walks outside and takes deep breaths of the cold night air like he can't believe he said something so hurtful. [I can't figure out why he said it either! He's been telling her all along how much he loves her...]

-1:41:55;1:45:15; 1:47:13; 1:50:48; 1:55:05 Suhan sneaks into the attic at Korludag farm to look for the other half of the note written by Cesur's father that says, “I surrender.”

-1:56:50 Suhan is leaving to go stay by herself for a bit, and Cesur asks her the same question. She replies, “I don't love you.” Tears pool in his eyes.

-2:00:34 She's now at the glass house. He misses her.

-2:03:04 Cesur conspires with Shirrin on on a birthday surprise for Suhan....

-2:04:51; 2:11:18; 2:16:31-End Cesur arranges a fancy dinner for her at a gallery. He gives her a calendar with special commemorations of their times together. He tells her loves her–for real—and kisses her. : ) Beautiful scene--one of the best in the whole show.

-45:22; 1:18:20; 1:57:35 Rifat in the hospital.

-55:12 Cesur greets Suhan with a quick kiss on cheek. Suggests they are a “couple.”

-58:00; 59:39; 105:19 Cesur tells Suhan more 'hard' things about her Dad, then tentatively reaches for her hand. She listens and lets him caress her finger. (Previously when she heard 'bad news' about her father, she got very defensive and pulled away from Cesur.)

-1:13:00; 1:14:00; 1:16:45 Cesur and Suhan leave police station arm in arm. Driving home, he stops by side of road to calm himself. This time Suhan calms him. (Previously, he has been the one calming her.)

-1:20:20; 1:22:44; 1:31:28; 1:32:57; 1:35:22; 1:37:22 Her birthday party—she

says some things to Cesur that show how much she loves him. Cesur: “You loved me despite all the obstacles between us. Thank you, Suhan.” {{Kiss and hug}} Suhan: “I trust in us.” They are openly expressing love for each other and hope in their future.

-End: Cesur is initially accused of arranging Reda's escape, but in the end Korludag is accused.

-Episode had relatively little Cesur and Suhan screen time, but when they were together, they were affectionate. The dinner at the art gallery at the end of episode 13 really turned the tide for them.

Episode 15

-Opening: Replay of the tables turning on Korludag—he gets arrested for helping Reda escape.

-7:40; 18:20; 1:11:38; 1:46:45 Flashbacks that reveals some of Korludag childhood—very sad...

-37:55; 53:50; 58:46 Bullant convinces Bano to go to dinner with him.

-45:35; 47:37 Suhan leaves, and Kamal tells her, you can't let evil win. Love is hard to come by and you have to fight for your love. Poignant scene.

-49:50; 1:05:00 Rifat in hospital.

-1:01:00; 1:12:30; 1:20:47; 1:21:30 Cesur visits Suhan at the glass house. They fuss a little, then he makes a deal with her about the ripped note. Cesur's half suggests his father committed suicide. Korhan and Jaida have the other half. He tells Suhan to read the other half, and if his father committed suicide he will not ask for his father's body to be exhumed and he will stop pursuing revenge on her father. He strokes her cheek in a very loving gesture, then leaves and they each press their palm to opposite sides of the closed door. It's like their way of trying/wishing they could be more connected. They're grieving for the pain between them. A poignant song plays in the background... Morphs into a montage of memories of them together that lasts for a few more minutes. Sweet.

-1:26:40; 1:32:25; 1:36:35; 1:38:00; 1:40:09; 1:42:52 Suhan reads the other half of letter.

-1:39:56 Suhan tells Cesur to go ahead with the exhumation.

-1:50:58; 1:53:24; 1:55:05; 1:56:09 Cesur goes to witness the exhumation.

-2:08:02; 2:14:10 At the glass house, Cesur scolds Suhan, but in truth he's jealous of her Pilates instructor. He finally says, “I missed you.” She says, “I missed you too.” He gets a text that with the autopsy report. Indeed his father was shot.

-A lot of back and forth between him and her. She is straddling a delicate fence. Her husband is hurting because he and his family were wronged. She is hurting because her father is the one under suspicion. If he gets what he wants, then she will be sad that her father is guilty. If her father is innocent, then her husband is sad that all his 'work' to prove her father was guilty was in vain and the wrong-doer has still not been brought to justice. It is a lose-lose situation.

-2:18:13 Jaida finds out she is pregnant for real.

-1:57:15 Suhan has a flashback of their night together at the glass house. Very sweet.

-2:08:20 Cesur's mother is kidnapped. Cesur watches as she falls to her death.

-A lot of this episode revealed Reda's schemes/plans.

Episode 17

-Opening: Cesur sees his mother fall to her death and has a huge outburst of grief that is gut-wrenching.... Outstanding performance by Kivanc.

-9:18 Cesur's just returning from having spent 45 days away in America. Rifat picks him up at airport and says Suhan called a lot wishing he would come back. Cesur sort of blows it off. (He got his haircut in America : )

-14:00 Korludag is in jail for the murder of Cesur's mother. He writes Mirhiban a letter and apologizes for leaving her at the altar all those years ago. It's a first sign of remorse.

-27:40 Suhan has a flashback to the day Cesur's mom died. Cesur took out all his anger on her and said, “Get away from me! When I look at you, all I see is the daughter of a killer.” Your heart just aches for her! Entire scene of his rage at 57:52. Spectacular acting performance by Kivanc!

-1:46:10 Shirrin gives a little talk to Cesur with some tough love.

-1:48:42; 1:57:58; 2:01:35 Cesur gets drunk, and Suhan puts him to bed. A sweet reverse of when he did it for her.

-1:57:30 Bullant kisses Bano.

-2:09:27 Trial of Tashin Korludag; he gets out. (At 2:19:34, Kivanc's acting for the next 30 seconds is fantastic.)

-2:27:57 Cesur kidnaps Korludag and takes him to the edge of a cliff/abyss where his father's car went over the edge 30 years ago.

-Lots of screen time for our couple in this episode. Very emotional—sad and beautiful at the same time. Some outstanding acting by Kivanc. If you could only watch one episode of the series, this might be the one to watch.

Episode 18

-Opening: Replay of Cesur “interrogating” Korludag and hanging him over a cliff.

-8:30 Suhan arrives on the scene, livid at Cesur. She yells at him in a similar way that he yelled at her when his mother died.

-1:01:00; 1:05:56; 1:07:05; 1:08:42; 1:22:40 A 'thief' 'breaks' into Suhan's Istanbul house and knocks her out. When Cesur arrives he says, “What did he do to you?” She says, “I'm used to 'hits' here lately. This one isn't as painful as the others.” (meaning the way Cesur has hurt her emotionally by his recent actions) Later she says, “Are you worried that they hit me? You hit me harder.”

-1:24:15; 1:25:22 Suhan files for divorce.

-1:26:42 Suhan tries to console herself for the losses in her life. (Her mother, Cesur's mother, and now Cesur).

-1:45:47 Cesur has flashback to their night at the glass house.

-1:47:40 Korhan asks Suhan, “Do you love Cesur so much?” Korhan confesses that he was there the night of Cesur's father's murder.

-1:55:50; 2:03:53 At the murder scene, Korhan confronts his father about the night of the murders. Sort of gets his dad to confess. Suhan and Cesur come walking out of the shadows...

-2:04:25 Mrs Korludag (Adalet) confesses to the killings.

-One of the least captivating episodes because not much action between Cesur and Suhan.

Episode 19

-Opening: Three weeks later: Korludag and Suhan having breakfast. We learn that Korhan and Jaida are no longer living there (Korludag was furious at Korhan for making him 'confess' about the night of the murders). Suhan's divorce hearing is scheduled for that day. Cesur arrives with a megaphone and a message for Korludag....

-5:00 Cesur is obsessed with blaming Korludag, even when in truth he's innocent. (Korludag was a part of the crimes but never killed anyone.)

-14:16 We hear what happened the night of the murders from Adalet.

-43:30 Reda asks Cesur to hire him. He does.

-52:55 Suhan and Cesur argue about Cesur taking on Reda. She's also angry that he didn't show up at divorce hearing. She says, “If we stay together we aren't together, and if we stay separated we aren't separated. We aren't married and we can't divorce. What shall we do? Live like this in the middle?” He replies, “I can live with you and in the middle.”

-57:51; 1:04:29; 1:13:50 It all hits the fan between Korhan and Jaida about her fake baby.

-1:22:35 Suhan thinks Cesur has been shot and rushes to hospital. Short but sweet scene shows she still cares deeply for him, and he is deeply touched to see evidence that she still cares for him. (The expression on his face when he turns around and sees her is fantastic. If eyes could reach out, his do in these few seconds: 1:23:16 to 1:23:20.)

-1:30:31; 1:33:30; 1:38:21; 1:38:45 Cesur and Suhan meet for dinner to discuss his “conditions for divorce”-- Tango dance.

-1:49:22; 1:52:40; 1:57:55; 2:00:30; 2:03:57 “The Beggar” tells Suhan he will tell her who killed Cesur's mother if she pays him 100,000 Liras. Suhan “bites” on the offer and goes to him. Cesur follows.

-2:13:50-End: Cesur shows up in divorce court and their divorce is finalized.

-Overall, episode is very slow. A lot of filler stuff—long car ride scenes and focus on peripheral stuff. You could almost skip the episode and not miss too much.

-20:31; 44:00; 49:56 Kivanc in blue sweater and brown pants. He looks stunning in that color!!

-21:26 Cesur calls Suhan—it's right after divorce. She tries to act like everything is fine, but she's heart-broken and crying. Says she is going away.

-25:00 Korludag humiliates Korhan in front of some workers and trashes him as a son. So mean! (So sad!)

-27:38 Suhan talking to Shirrin—more evidence that Suhan is not feeling so well....

-51:53 Suhan is staying at her family's hunting lodge and has a dream that Cesur tells her she will never get him out of her heart. He asks her not to leave the country. A very tender moment.

-1:53:19; 1:56:55; 2:09:46; 2:17:29 Suhan having more symptoms of pregnancy and tells Shirin she's pregnant but doesn't know what to do. (Shirrin's reaction to pregnancy at 1:54:20 is adorable!)

-1:58:00 Korhan stands up to his father.

-2:16:30 Hulia leaves baby at the family manor estate.

-2:07:30; 2:10:28; 2:17:17 Cesur takes over Korludag's company.

-8:45; 14:03 Korhan finds out Suhan is pregnant. In voicing her anger that Cesur was deceiving, selfish, etc. in order to gain control of he company, Korhan says, "I helped Cesur get the company. And I didn't do it for him but for me.”

-27:40; 33:03; 35:49 Shirrin is missing. Cesur and Suhan go looking, and Suhan lets Cesur comfort her and kiss her forehead. Sweet moment.

-38:20; 38:58;47:11 We see what happened to Shirrin.

-41:15 We see the connection between Shirrin's dad and Reda.

-46:05; 47:35 Later that night when Suhan is leaving, Cesur offers to drive her home. When she declines, he follows behind her in the car. Funny.

-1:00:35; 1:07:15 In a company board meeting, Suhan loudly objects to Cesur in front of the others. Then, Cesur overhears Korhan saying to Suhan, “You have no right to hide something like

this." (Referring to her pregnancy.) Cesur knows something is up, he just doesn't know what.

-1:10:00; 1:18:53 Korhan sets up a 'chance' meeting for Suhan and Cesur at the company hotel to 'force' her to tell Cesur about her pregnancy. She wouldn't do it. 1:20:06 When he says, “Do you hate me so much?” The expression on his face makes my heart hurt!

-1:47:45 Shirrin tells Cesur, “Suhan still loves you. … I think she's expecting an apology from you.”

-1:54:35 Korhan tries to talk Suhan out of an abortion. He says, “Cesur loves you and you love him. … You will regret it if you do it.”

-2:03:34-end Suhan goes for an abortion, and Cesur goes to stop her. He begs her to say she didn't do it. She says, “I did it.” Walking away she tears up but with a flashback that in reality she couldn't go thru with it and lied to Cesur.

-2:07:00-end Kivanc's acting reaction/ expression is gut-wrenching!

Episode 22

Note: The resolution of this episode is particularly poor—on all the sites it is posted on.

-Opens with him having a dream that his mother comes to him and says leave the past behind; don't let go of Suhan.

-4:05 Suhan has a flashback of a conversation she had with Cesur's mother about the mother being a single mom. Suhan contemplates her future as a single mom.

-10:16; 12:20 Cesur is at his parent's grave. Suhan comes to put flowers, and he snubs her.

-16:00 Trial for Korludag in the case of Cesur's mother resumes.

-32:40; 37:42; 44:00; 46:39; 52:37; 59:00 Cesur and Suhan search for a night watchman together to help find who killed his mother.

-1:05:52; 1:14:50 (Dance); 1:21:00; 1:23:43 (Asking hard questions); 1:30:50 (Dream); 1:36:44 Still hunting the night watchman, they crash a wedding and dance to song that expresses their situation. They have to share a hotel room and ask each other hard questions and get hard answers. Very sad.

-1:42:00; 1:50:50; 1:57:00; 2:01:22 They find the night watchman.

-1:55:48; 1:57:30; 2:04:13 Korludag kills Salih in a scuffle.

-15:29 The family is told Salih's been killed.

-30:31; 31:08 Cesur “confesses” to the murder and takes the prosecutor to the supposed scene of the crime. Cesur escapes.

-43:55 Reda blackmails Korludag. Korludag gives him the hotel.

-42:57; 45:40; 52:14; 55:53; 1:01:32; 1:04:07; 1:15:28; 1:21:04; 1:49:15: 1:51:00; 1:57:00; 2:07:00 Suhan and Rifat conspire and trick the police. Suhan shows up at Cesur's hideout— some sort of lodge place—and insists on helping him.

-1:25:00 Bullant kisses Bano.

-1:26:10; 1:33:20 Cesur and Suhan at the lodge: Romantic scene where he says he is jealous of her hand, hair, and mouth because they received the attention of her hand. In this out-of-the-everyday situation, they are working together, and it is a reminder to both of them how much they love the other. He asks her again, “Why did you do this to us?” (referring to the abortion.) She considers revealing the truth, then thinks better and gets up and walks away.

-2:07:11 While bandaging his wound, she breaks down and says, “What would I do if something had happened to you?”

-2:10:58 Cesur watches CD and sees that Salih killed his mother. Police "raid" the lodge. Cesur takes Suhan “hostage,” but the prosecutor tells them they know Cesur is not the killer of Salih.

-Disappointing script writing. The implausible plotting “coincidences” make it unbelievable—some were kinda silly. But there are a few good romantic scenes.

Episode 24

-Opening: Korludag is in jail. Cesur and Suhan show the prosecutor the CD that Salih set up the murder of Cesur's mother to make it look like Korludag did it.

-31:35; 33:41 Suhan is told her father is dying of an incurable disease.

-35:26; 38:48 Cesur askes Shirrin what she knows about Reda.

-49:30 Suhan pours her heart out at her mother's grave.

-1:08:00 Kemal goes after Reda for what he did to Shirrin and gets beaten up. Cesur rescues him.

-1:32:45; 1:37:26 Cesur and Korludag greet each other cordially. Now that Cesur knows Korludag

didn't kill his father or mother, the animosity between them has toned down some.

-1:41:01; 1:44:10; 1:47:48; 1:57:15 Suhan and Cesur go to her house in Istanbul. She tells him that her father is dying in a touching scene. They are confiding in each other more and more and not fighting so much. They understand each other and know that the other understands them better than anyone else.

-2:05:05 She says if my father wasn't dying, I'd be leaving. And staying is harder than leaving. He says, “Harder because of me? .... But we are no longer connected. You broke the connection when you killed our child.” His words cut deep. As she walks away she says, “You hate me, don't you.” [long pause] He replies, “I wish.”

-End: Reda takes Suhan to his [hotel] room and shows her the video of her father killing Salih. He tells her that she has to choose between her father and Cesur.

-One of the slower episodes. A bit overly melodramatic, some implausible stuff, and not enough focus on main couple.

Episode 25

-Opening: Cesur goes to Reda's room and finds Suhan there.

-9:15 Cesur and Suhan have a little talk by a lake.

-21:27 Adalet learns of Korludag's terminal illness.

-24:04 Cesur plots/captures Reda. I won't include all the timestamps as they are numerous and I thought this plotline was the most implausible of the whole show.

-25:45; 27:40; 31:50 Suhan tells her father she knows he killed Salih.

-47:31 Suhan dreams Cesur comes to the door and wants to whisk her away. She says she still has baby, and they are glowing with happiness. Then her father shoots Cesur (in the dream). 49:50—he makes a cute little salsa dancing move.

-53:30 He meets her by the lake after the bad dream—the same spot where he first declared his love to her on New Years Eve and quoted the love poem. He quotes more romantic poetry here, and it's just a beautiful scene. They clearly love each other, and the barriers are coming down.

-1:17:47 Adalet escapes from prison.

-1:19:19 Cesur kidnaps Reda.

-1:37:36 Suhan goes to Cesur's house and asks him if he knows where Reda is. They accuse each other of harboring secrets.

-1:49:00 Suhan tries to help Reda escape—as part of her fulfilling her promise to him.

-1:50:30 Suhan and Cesur have a huge argument over him kidnapping Reda. She begs him not to do this. “I miss this intelligent man!” His reply: “The previous Cesur doesn't exist anymore. He died with his mother.” Great scene.

-2:05:30; 2:07:45; 2:09:00 Reda's man, Turan, kidnaps Suhan for a “prisoner exchange.”

-2:18:56 Adalet meets Reda in the woods and threatens him with a gun.

-2:22:00 Cesur catches Suhan trying to make off the camera/video of Reda's time in his little prison. She suggests they destroy all the evidence showing they were there. He says he wants to watch it first to find out what she is hiding...

-Cesur and Suhan are slowly, one small step at a time, deciding they can't live without the other. But most of the surrounding action is so implausible and “coincidental,” it requires a lot of suspension of disbelief.

Episode 26

-Opening: Cesur is watching the video that shows Suhan “helping” Reda escape from Cesur's little jail cell. He demands an explanation from her, but she says (with much pain) that she can't tell him. She is straddling a fine line between trying to protect both her father and Cesur.

-4:55 We suspect that more happened in the woods with Adalet and Reda than we saw at the end of the last episode. 2:09:16 We see what happened to Adalet.

-30:54: 1:10:10 Cesur tells Kamal to keep an eye on Suhan—and let him know if Reda contacts her.

-32:16; 34:53 Bulant proposes to Bano. She says she will think about it.

-55:00; 57:52 Kamal is following Suhan. She is jogging and Cesur meets her on the road.

-1:09:19; 1:17:05 Reda 'forces' Suhan to have dinner with him.

-1:22:09 1:26:10 Cesur rescues Suhan from the forced dinner with Reda. (Knight in shining armor!) Great acting. He is really something to watch when he gets angry!

-1:37:17 Cesur finds the evidence that will implicate Suhan's father—the evidence that Reda is holding over Suhan's head to keep her subservient to Reda.

-1:40:29 Suhan begs Cesur not to turn the CD in to the police and therefore implicate her father. “If you love me, please don't do it.”

-151:41; 1:54:32; 1:57:27; 1:57:27 He goes to police station to turn it in, but then can't do it. “For you it's worth doing the wrong thing.”

-1:47:30; 2:01:37; 2:03:30 Suhan finds out that her father's “incurable illness” is another deception. “These tests can't be yours, Papa, they are for a woman! …. How could a father make his daughter suffer so much on purpose? ...I lost the man I love for you!” Very powerful scene!

-2:09:16 We see what happened to Adalet.

-2:07:09; 2:13:07 Suhan writes/takes Shirrin a letter with the CD showing Korludag killing Shirrin's father. Suhan tells Shirrin, “You should decide what to do with the CD.”

-2:14:20-end Suhan tells Cesur she's still pregnant. He has a wonderful reaction—a big range of emotions with fantastic acting—and they have a tender moment. He says, “We should get married immediately.” She says, “No, not until I can see that you will be like the old Cesur and not like my father. That you will give up all this revenge.” It ends with him scowling as if he's thinking I can't/won't give up my revenge. **One of the best scenes of the show!

-**The implausible plotting seems to have ended.

Episode 27

-Opening; 5:39 Picks up where the last episode left off. Regarding her stipulation for them getting married she says, “You'll either become a father or a murderer. The choice is yours.” He eventually says, "I choose you but with the condition that you live with me so you can see where I go, who I am with, etc. Do not leave me without you.”

-9:45; 14:22; 15:46; 17:00; 24:20; 41:02 Suhan moves to Cesur's farm.

-27:23 Shirrin recounts to Suhan and Cesur how she took the CD to the prosecutor, but the CD got “lost” on the way.

-30:00 Shirrin and Suhan repair their relationship. Sweet scene.

-34:24; 36:53; 41:02 Suhan and Cesur tell Korhan she is pregnant.

-43:16 (Daily Motion Part II 1:05) Sweet and funny scene where Cesur convinces Suhan to share the bed with him. Makes me laugh every time I watch it!

-48:00 Suhan tells Sherrin that she had a beautiful dream that Cesur proposed to her in a field of flowers.

-1:05:32 (Daily Motion: Part II 23:13) Suhan has a sonogram, and Cesur's response is very sweet.

-1:12:50 Reda tries to provoke Cesur

-1:16:47; 1:18:24 Jaida reveals to Cesur and Suhan that Bullant started the fire at Cesur's farm in episode 1.

-1:20:00 Bano slaps Bullant—on the night she was planning to accept his marriage proposal.

-2:23:54; 1:30:00 (DM: part III 5:38) Cesur proposes in field of yellow flowers. “I don't want anything more in life but you.”

-1:44:00 (DM: Part III 18:48) Cesur and Suhan are in bed, and Suhan has a great flashback montage of romantic moments of them together.

-1:49:00 (DM: Part III 24:20) Korludag shows Cesur a note from Reda to Salih with instructions how to kill Cesur's mother. Korludag says, "If you won't kill him [Reda], I will." For the first time, the two rivals are on the same side.

-1:58:00 – end (DM Part III 33:30) Cesur feels like he has no choice but to go deal with Reda. Suhan says, “If you walk out that door, you'll never see me again.” He turns around and walks out. Great acting!

**Lots of Cesur and Suhan in this episode. Some really great scenes. It's up there with Ep 17 as one of the best episodes.

Episode 28

-Opening; 4:36: Suhan crying that Cesur left to hunt down Reda.

-10:15; 13:07 Cesur finds Reda but he has flashbacks of Suhan and her pleading and he can't pull the trigger.

-12:01 Shirrin's mother stabs Korludag. He falls and hits his head.

-16:39; 18:50 Cesur goes back home to find Suhan wheeling her suitcase out—he says, "I didn't do it. I couldn't. All I could think about was you."

-18:09; 23:28; 25:59; 28:35; 30:14; 32:55; 35:27; 36:52 Hospital scenes--Korludag has a head injury. The doctor calls for blood, and Cesur volunteers to donate his O neg.

-38:17 Cesur says to Suhan, "Just as you love your father with all his mistakes, I am our son's father. Don't leave. Don't separate us, please."

-39:35; 44:32 Doctor tells Korhan his father lost his memory. Korhan and Suhan think it's another one of his father's deceptions.

-43:36 At hospital, Cesur gives Suhan a hug of support before she goes in to see her father.

-46:18; 51:15; 53:00; 57:00 Korludag's loss of memory causes a lot of awkward situations—everyone else knows what's happened in the last 5 years except him. He doesn't know who Cesur really is and thinks Cesur and Suhan are already married.

-1:05:33; 1:08:49; 1:12:38 (DM: Part II 19:20) Cesur moves to the Korludag farm to be with Suhan as she supports her father.

-1:50:00 Jaida takes Hulia's baby. Bullant holds it for ransom

-1:40:30; 1:48:00; 1:51:30; 1:59:00 Suhan and the prosecutor set up a trap for Reda at her house in Istanbul. At same time, Cesur gets a note that says “the one he loves” is underground. (These two scenes alternate back and forth for quite some time.) The end result is Reda is jailed.

-End—Last 1.5 minutes (DM: 42:28) Cesur and Suhan share words looking towards future. <Interrupted by a short scene of Reda in jail> Final 30 seconds or so is Cesur and Suhan embracing. Looks like a Christmas card picture.

-18:17 Reda escapes.

-25:55; 28:52 Prosecutor comes over and tells Cesur and Suhan that Reda escaped.

-35:50; 43:17 With the news of Reda's escape, “the funk” comes over Cesur again. Suhan talks him out of it and they go on a venture to make wedding plans.

-45:48; 50:02 Cesur delights Suhan by taking her to a beach wedding venue, then he shops with her for a wedding dress.

-57:00; 1:02:00; 1:04:00; 1:09:00; 1:12:20 An adventure in cooking together—interrupted by her father....

-1:15:20; 1:16:17; 1:23:44 Reda phones Cesur and says he has a game.... Cesur's on edge and snaps at Suhan, then goes on an expedition....

-1:52:45 (DM: part III 20:27) Cesur and Suhan are sitting outside looking at the stars and he tells her how thankful he is that she came into his life. “You are the good in me and the beauty that is in my heart. …. You got my soul.”

-Reda conspires with Bullant, Jaida, and Hulia to ruin the happiness of Suhan and Cesur

-2:00:00 Bullant tells Korludag that Cesur and Suhan are getting married.

-2:02:00; 2:10:04-end (DM: Part III 29:38; 37:40-end) Wedding--that ends in tragedy.

-2:04:00 Tashin goes to wedding venue and confronts Suhan. Scene was poorly done. There were guards everywhere—how did he get in? And Shirrin just let him in? We see a little of the father/daughter confrontation, but not much. Feels like they may have cut a lot.

Episode 30

-Opening Suhan is in the hospital, and Cesur is pacing with worry. He goes into her room and says some sweet things while she is sleeping/sedated.

-6:16 Shirrin tells Cesur that Korludag confronted Suhan just before the wedding and maybe that caused the near miscarry.

-13:24 Cesur storms to confront Korludag and “enlightens” the man about all his bad deeds, how he deceived his children, how they hate him, how he killed Salih. Cesur is in a rage. Great acting performance (even real sweat on the brow)!

-29:39; 32:25; 36:44; 42:20 Cesur brings Suhan home from hospital and says/does more sweet things.

-52:12; 55:30 Suhan finds out her father is missing and storms over and blames Bullant but finds out what Cesur did.

-58:30 Suhan confronts Cesur about him blowing up at her father, then begs him to find the man.

-101:30; 1:04:05 (DM: Part II 13:46) Cesur goes looking for/finds Korludag. Touching scene.

-1:15:00: 1:17:30 (DM: Part II 30:36) Cesur and Suhan rejoice (embrace) over news that Reda died when his boat exploded.

-1:46:00 Bullant spills the beans about being rooked by Reda into doing mischief at Suhan's wedding.

-Most all scenes between the scene of Bullant's confession and the do-over wedding are all related to details how Reda kidnapped Bullant, Hulia, and Jaida and tried to coerce them into poisoning Suhan.

-2:11:10; 2:14:06-End Cesur and Suhan's wedding do-over. (Interrupted by a short scene showing what happened to Reda on the ship and one or two other short scenes.)

Episode 31

-Opening: Cesur and Suhan honeymooning on a sailboat. Lasts almost 15 min.

Well done! Nice to see a LOT of them finally being happy together with no drama. This is one of two times that Suhan tells Cesur that she loves him.

-15:25 Korludag deeply mourns his wife Adalet—the only person he really loved and didn't deceive.

-32:05 We learn that Reda took Bano's son and blackmailed Bano to poison Suhan, but Jaida gets blamed and is in jail.

-36:28 Korludag realizes that Adala escaped from prison so she could be with him because she thought he was dying. Now she is dead. So in a 'round about way, it is his fault, through his underhanded ways, he “killed” her. Korledug is definitely softening.

-41:18; 42:43 Bano visits Suhan and tries to poison her again and plant a camera in Cesur's house. Because she didn't “get the job done the first time,” Reda won't return her son until Bano succeeds in her task.

-47:19; 54:42; 58:04 Cesur and Suhan figure out Bano's the one who poisoned Suhan, and they pay her a visit.

-1:04:00 (DM: Part II 15:31 ) Korludag realizes the ugly person he's become and how he's wounded his son. He apologizes.

-1:50:07; 1:54:15 Korledug visits Cesur and Suhan at an inopportune time, but we see the real story of his childhood and why he thought he was entitled to the paintings.

-2:00:00 (DM: Part III 20:00) Cesur asks Suhan, “Do I still look like your father?” Suhan: “You will never look like my father.” Sweet moment.

-2:07:16-End Reda tricks Cesur to get him out of the house, then Reda goes to Cesur/Suhan's house, shoots Korhan, and takes Suhan.

Episode 32

-Opening Super fast flashback in reverse order of Cesur and Suhan's entire history. Pretty cool. Then Suhan wakes up in captivity.

-25:00 Mihriban comforts Tashin when he goes to the morgue to see his dead son. A beautiful moment of reconciliation.

-<Cesur frantically looking for Suhan; Suhan scared, sad, etc.>

-1:02:01 (DM: Part II 8:49) Suhan calls Cesur. Tells him she loves him.

-1:09:26 (DM: Part II 16:30) Cesur finds Suhan, but Reda has rigged the door. Korludag opens the door and it shoots Suhan. Expression on Cesur's face says it all.

-DM: Part II 25:50; 36:52 ("Where are you my love?"); 40:15 (smile); 50:56; 22:52; Suhan lying unconscious in hospital bed, Cesur beside her, talking to her.

-DM: Part II 28:53 Reda in a mental institution.

-DM: Part II 30:43 Hulia calls Jaida from prison and asks her to be her son's mother. Heart-wrenching! Then Jaida sees a 'vision' of Korhan who comforts her says he's proud of her kindness. Very sweet.

--DM: Part II 34:46 Bullant in jail, talking to his mother—is remorseful for the first time. Very moving.

-DM: Part II 44:07 Doctor tells Cesur he has to decide to take the child's life or risk Suhan's life. He chooses life for both. As scene ends, timeline skips to four months later.

-DM Part III 9:50; 12:03 Suhan goes into cardiac arrest.
