After Benoît breaks up with Mindy, she forms a relationship with Nicolas. It doesn’t take long for Mindy to get introduced to his parents, family members, and other business acquaintances. Although Nicolas doesn’t get along with Mindy’s best friend Emily, Mindy succeeds in dealing with the same without hurting her relationship with Nicolas and her friendship with Emily. While Mindy and Nicolas somehow manage to make progress with their relationship, Benoît resurfaces in the life of the former. He tells her that the song he has written for her got selected for the Eurovision Song Contest.

Benoît’s return to Mindy’s life is expected to threaten the togetherness of Mindy and Nicolas. Mindy and Benoît do cherish an almost perfect relationship. He motivates her to cling to her passion and sing without fear. Mindy reinvents herself after meeting Benoît and his influence is evident in the way she lives even after their separation. As a musician, Benoît succeeds in appealing to Mindy’s passion in a way Nicolas can’t. As he resurfaces in her life, she may reconsider being the girlfriend of a businessman to get back together with the musician who can understand her and her aspirations better than the former.

In addition, Mindy would want to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest along with Benoît. The contest gives Mindy an opportunity to prove herself as a talented singer and overcome the traumatic experience of getting embarrassed on Chinese television. Since Mindy and Benoît are expected to team up together for the contest in the fourth season of the show, the experience may bring them closer again, possibly paving the way for their reunion. Mindy may realize that her togetherness with Nicolas is nothing but a rebound and the realization may lead her to reconcile with the musician.

As a partner, Nicolas doesn’t offer much to Mindy. All he is able to do is let her use the opulent resources he possesses as one of the heads of JVMA. Other than the same, Mindy does spend a big part of their time together attending various formal and informal events with him. She may soon realize the hollowness of such a relationship and reunite with Benoît.
