As our daydream continues, we see the circumstances that brought Woo Tak into the situation at the chicken shop. Jae Chan asked Woo Tak to go with Hong Ju and gave him the time and date information. As a result, Woo Tak now lay in a pool of his own blood on the chicken shop floor while Hong Ju and Cho Hee cower under the blue construction tarp on the roof. Meanwhile, Jae Chan and his crew race to the scene and it begs the question…If Jae Chan knew what time everything would happen, why is he late?? I’m not pickin’, I promise. I guess maybe a crime needed to be committed for Dae Hee’s re-arrest? Jae Chan and his crew arrive a few seconds before the police do and after passing Woo Tak off to his partner, Jae Cha sprints up the stairs towards the roof with the Wonderful Mr. Choi not too far behind him.
Once on the roof, Jae Chan issues his arrest warrant and is immediately drawn into a fistfight. Jae Chan takes a beating from Dae Hee and just when we think that he is losing, the Wonderful Mr. Choi hits Dae Hee with a flying kick, bring him to the ground. Detectives swoop in and handcuff Dae Hee as he squirms and immediately begins asking for his lawyer, Yu Beom. Jae Chan checks on the women and soon finds a tearful Hong Ju in his arms.
Later, at the hospital, Woo Tak wakes to find himself surrounded by Hong Ju, Jae Chan, Kyung Han and the girl with a crush. At the jail, Dae Hee remembers his conversation with Yu Beom and in spite of the overwhelming evidence against him, he still believes he will be able to get away with is crimes with Yu Beom’s help. At the hospital, Woo Tak asks Jae Chan about Dae Hee’s case and learns that Jae Chan will be the prosecutor.
At the prosecutor’s office, Jae Chan runs into the Wonderful Mr. Choi and Grapevine Gossip Girl in the lobby. Mr. Choi scolds Jae Chan for running towards danger alone. When Gossip Girl gets the impression that Jae Chan did everything on his own, Mr. Choi sets the record straight and regales her with his part in the takedown of the dangerous criminal. What Mr. Choi doesn’t know, is that the Big Boss is watching and from a distance, it looks like he is bragging. Jae Chan tries to warn him but Mr. Choi is a bit too wrapped up in reliving the exciting moment.
Jae Chan gets on the elevator with Yu Beom and the two share some tense moments as they talk about Dae Hee’s case and the failures surrounding it. Although Yu Beom’s initial bluster immediately following the case might indicate that he has no heart or moral compass, in this conversation he lets Jae Chan know that he will not be representing Dae Hee in his next trial. He reiterates that he only bets on things he knows he can win and that money is not a factor for him. Later, in an interrogation room, Jae Chan outlines the charges against Dae Hee. Dae Hee arrogantly pretends that he knows the law better than Jae Chan and immediately gets his backside handed to him. He flips out a bit when he realizes that Yu Beom will not be helping him with his case and the law that he thought he was so familiar with will be the one that will actually convict him.
At home, Jae Chan and Seung Won watch the news report on Dae Hee’s case. Hong Ju reports on the case as many of those involved look on. The report is similar to Jae Chan’s dream except for the person on the couch next to him is his brother and not Hong Ju.
In court, Jae Chan presents a solid case against Dae Hee and asks the judge for the maximum sentence. Hong Ju and Cho Hee sit in the gallery as the judge delivers her verdict. Later, Big Boss Mr. Park hangs a sign in his office that reads “Give credit to others and blame yourself”. He says that Jae Chan should receive credit for resolving Dae Hee’s case and that he will take the blame for the failure of the first case. Ji Gwang, Woo Joo, and Hee Min stand in Mr. Parks office. Ji Gwang and Woo Joo quickly accept blame for their shortcomings in the case. Hee Min, however, is quite happy to blame Ji Gwang and she has no trouble voicing her opinion. Out in the hallway, Ji Gwang and Hee Min get into it. Hee Min still refuses to accept her role in the faulty prosecution of Dae Hee and the argument ends with Hee Min walking away.
Jae Chan finds Hong Ju in the park trying to walk off her guilt about Woo Tak. He lets her know that Woo Tak was at the chicken shop that night because of him and if anyone should feel guilty about Woo Tak’s injuries, it should be him. Jae Chan comforts Hong Ju and the two share a sweet moment of growing trust and closeness.
At the prosecutor’s office, Ji Gwang accidentally finds Hee Min crying. He quickly leaves the room and posts a note on the door to keep others from finding her. It is all he needs to know that Hee Min really did feel the impact of her failure and that deep down she takes responsibility. I quite enjoyed the way Ji Gwang clotheslined Grapevine Gossip Girl and how she just went with it. Most interactions involving her are tons of fun.
We see one of Jae Chan’s memories. It is shortly after he has confessed to his father that he manipulated his grades. He sits outside the police station crying when one of his father’s co-workers comes out to comfort him. He assures Jae Chan that his father’s anger will subside and he will have the chance to repair his trust with his father.
A cable service repair man fiddles with a wall jack as we are shown photo after photo of what appears to be a female Olympic archer. That archer is the resident of this apartment. The cable man finishes his work and politely asks for a good customer service rating when the company calls for their customer satisfaction survey. The woman’s mother interjects and promises the cable guy that if he takes some cardboard boxes down to the trash for them, she will be sure her daughter gives him a ten out of ten rating. He happily accepts but once the door closes behind him we see that the additional role of garbage man did not make him so happy. He takes to social media (like ya do) and posts a simple question. “Should I teach them a lesson?” It is cryptic, to say the least. It doesn’t take long for his post to get a “like” from none other than Woo Tak, who is still recovering at the hospital. It seems that our cable guy, Hak Young, and Woo Tak are friends.
Bring on the gratuitous ab shot as Woo Tak shrugs out of his hospital gown. Jae Chan is there and remarks on Woo Tak’s physique while flexing his own muscles for comparison. Hong Ju arrives just as Woo Tak is slowly and carefully putting his shirt back on. Jae Chan flies across the room to stand between Hong Ju and Woo Tak as he holds up a jacket to shield her from something he doesn’t want her to see. Hong Ju doesn’t understand what the big deal is and she adorably sneaks a peek after pretending to turn her back. Woo Tak announces that he will be recuperating at Hong Ju’s house since telling his parents about the attack would cause his parents to ask him to resign from the police force. Jae Chan eagerly offers his house as a refuge but Woo Tak says he has a separate favor to ask of him.
Seung Won opens his apartment door to find the place torn apart. It appears as though the place has been robbed until an adorable toilet paper wrapped corgi comes waddling up to him. It is Robin (Woo Bin), Woo Tak’s dog and now we realize the favor that was asked of Jae Chan. Seung Won finds his brother standing in the dark and staring out the window across the street at Hong Ju’s rooftop. Hong Ju and her mother are enjoying homemade BBQ with Woo Tak. Jae Chan is calmly seething with jealousy because of it.
Jae Chan’s phone rings and he finds Woo Tak on the other end. Woo Tak asks Jae Chan to run an errand for him and Jae Chan agrees to go because of the guilt he feels for Woo Tak’s injury. He steps outside to find Hong Ju. She is going with him since she is the one with his debit card. Woo Tak tosses his car keys to Jae Chan and smiles broadly as Hong Ju and Jae Chan leave. Is this a setup? I’m thinking, yes! When they get to the store, Woo Tak video calls Hong Ju and he encourages them to buy all kinds of ridiculous things.
When Jae Chan and Hong Ju finally return from their suspicious errand, Jae Chan tries to kiss Hong Ju but is held back by the automatically locking seat belt. In the following awkwardness, Hong Ju tries to rectify the situation and she grabs both sides of Jae Chan’s face and plants one on him while his hands are full. She quickly realizes that she has turned up the awkwardness instead of turning it down. She retrieves her bags from a frozen Jae Chan and rushes inside. Woo Tak has seen the entire exchange via the video doorbell.
When Jae Chan gets home, he is still feeling the effects of Hong Ju’s kiss. His brother notices his unusual behavior and asks if he’s been drinking. Seung Won tells his brother about receiving a piece of mail and the mood quickly turns serious. Jae Chan sits at his desk and contemplates the letter. He remembers the day of his father’s funeral and his encounter with the brother of the man that killed him. It is the same man who told him that he would be able to make things right with his father. It is his father’s colleague. He was young then and in his grief, he tried to extract an explanation from him. In spite of his apology, Jae Chan had asked the man how he could have told him that he had more time and now that his father was dead, how could he impress him and rebuild his father’s opinion of him. It is a painful memory for Jae Chan. He unlocks the desk drawer and places the unopened envelope inside along with many other letters just like it.
The next morning, Jae Chan waits outside of Hong Ju’s gate to take her to work. Hong Ju is hiding from Jae Chan to avoid addressing the elephant that will surely appear once they are together. She tells her mother to lie to Jae Chan and say that she has already left for work. Her mother agrees but does nothing to hide the fact that Hong Ju is actually just on the other side of the gate. Jae Chan calls her out and since her cover is already blown, she emerges from behind the gate and walks to the bus stop with Jae Chan.
Jae Chan attacks things head on when he and Hong Ju are alone. She continues to pretend that nothing happened the night before and he finally agrees to go along with her pretense as long as she agrees to stop avoiding him.
Hak Young has returned to the Olympic archer’s apartment for more repairs and this time their exchange is not very pleasant. It seems there are always problems with her connection and the story is always the same when a repairman comes around. Needless to say, she is frustrated and she has no trouble showing it to Hak Young. None the less, he asks for a good customer service rating at the end of his visit and even offers to take out the cardboard boxes for her. His request and good deed are met with a less than friendly response and once again, when the door closes behind him, his happy customer service smile fades into an annoyed glare. I feel ya buddy, I feel ya.
Kyung Han and the girl with the crush on Woo Tak are going about their patrol when they receive a call to a large apartment block. When they arrive they find a terrified housekeeper just outside the apartment. Inside the apartment, they find the Olympic archer, Yu Su Kyung, lying on the floor in a pool of blood. A strange geometric pattern is drawn with her blood on the floor near her body. Across town, Woo Tak watches the news story about the murder with great interest. The news reports that Hak Young is the primary suspect.
That night, Woo Tak packs his things to go home. Jae Chan and Hong Ju accompany him back to his house. Hong Ju unpacks some of her mother’s homemade side dishes and notices how bare Woo Tak’s refrigerator is. Woo Tak offers to show Jae Chan his stab wound. He quickly hugs Woo Tak to keep him from flashing his abs while Hong Ju is in the room. Woo Tak escorts Jae Chan and Hong Ju to the elevator and assures them that they don’t need to feel guilty about his injury anymore and that he considers them even. He then reveals that he dreamed of the two of them in the park and then easily recounts what they believed was a private conversation.
Later that night, Woo Tak dreams that he is being questioned by Jae Chan. The dream is interrupted by a phone call from Hong Ju. She asks him if he is alright. She dreamed that the murder suspect barged into Woo Tak’s house. He does his best to assure her that everything is fine and even promises that his door is tightly locked. The call ends and his smile fades. We soon see why as it is revealed that Hak Young is sitting on the floor across from Woo Tak’s bed.
Woo Tak sits on the couch with Hak Young and listens as he pleads his innocence. He swears that he is not the one who killed Su Kyung. Woo Tak encourages Hak Young to turn himself in and promises to go with him when he does. Hak Young begs for Woo Tak’s help. He asks if Woo Tak believes him. Woo Tak asks “If I tell you that I believe you, will you turn yourself in?” The conditional question seems to flip a switch in Hak Young who then replies, “If I end up becoming a murderer like this,….I’ll tell your secret to the police.”
