Tamaki finally realizes his inner feelings and got honest with Megumi about some girl he had been having intimate regard all along!
Tamaki recalls risking Haruhi’s life for issues concerning his family’s business. The kidnapping remember?
The troubled guy had been contemplating of how could he have acted foolishly towards Haruhi and that Host Club “family” thing. He realizes, that because of his personal trauma, he wanted to keep things just like that in fear of losing something precious and feel bad about it.
After Mori senpai’s disaster challenge, it’s about time for curry making. It’s a surprise that Megumi now tells Tamaki which ingredients to choose. Kyoya revealed that it was Haruhi’s idea making it easy for him and Kanoya since her father is a cook. They’ve got to answer some puzzles and the next stop is some kind of a lie-detector-test-like challenge… a mouth of truth booth…sort of.
The mechanics are simple. Answer as accurately and honestly as possible that the hand which is placed in the in the mouth will not be eaten. However, Megumi hadn’t been honest when it comes to her father so her hand got pulled in.
Haruhi declined Tamaki’s request to stop the challenge as it is hurting Megumi. She among the others worked hard and came up with the idea to make him realize that it isn’t only him who would want the friendship of the Host Club to last, and that everyone wanted to stick together too and he need not isolate himself in a corner and get all depressed by himself! They too wanted him to be honest with himself.
Tamaki soon calls Hikaru as he earned himself some confidence to settle his issues. He loves Haruhi from the start! Those worrying about her and being happy around her, he’s got no doubt about his feelings now!
What beautiful friendship the Host Club is having! They have stood beside Tamaki to help him confront his issues in a subtle way and Haruhi’s so brillant second to Kyoya that is, for having thought of the whole thing!
The best thing is, Tamaki’s slowly opening up and really now sure about his feelings towards Haruhi and that’s great! Poor Hikaru, but I know he understands more than anyone else.
