Thank dramagods for letting Chief Bang live. I’m so happy and relieved to see him fighting for his life. Though I can’t go on full celebratory mode right now as we still have to wait for him to wake up to see whether the attack damaged his brain. I’m hoping he’ll be able to return to his old, normal self.
I love Chief Bang’s character so much that’s why I was so devastated when he got into trouble. He’s such a good colleague and friend, and person in general, who looks after the people around him. Plus, he’s the captain of our JiBong ship so I can’t really afford to lose him.
My heart ached for Noh Ji-wook (Wookie), who is the most affected one by what happened to Chief Bang. It’s most probably because of his painful experience of losing his parents when he was just a young boy. I cried when he sobbed like a child while blaming himself for arriving a little too late, and asking Chief Bang to please hold on.
Wookie’s acting chops never fail to amaze me every single time. I could feel the agony in his tears, and the anger in his stares at Jung Hyun-soo (Dong Ha). Woah, somebody give this talented guy an acting trophy already!
Ji-wook considers Chief Bang like a family that’s why his anger towards Hyun-soo is so understandable. I thought Healer and K2 possessed Ji-wook when he assaulted Hyun-soo after the latter admitted to him that he did kill the victims found in the water reservoir, the chef, and Jang Hee-jun (Chansung). But what really made Ji-wook snap was Hyun-soo’s threat to kill all the people around him to make him understand how it feels to lose someone he loves.
Ji-wook was so furious that he wanted to manipulate things by planting evidence against Hyun-soo for that amnesiac or psychotic or whatever murderer to be locked up in jail. He deliberately refused to settle things out with Hyun-soo at the police station to get the two of them detained so that Ji Eun-hyuk (Choi Tae-joon), with the help of Eun Bong-hee (Nam Ji-hyun), could search Hyun-soo’s apartment.
I’m glad Ji-wook was able to clear his mind and think straight to abort the plan. He also consoled Bong-hee, who once again blamed herself for Chief Bang’s fate. Well, all of them were actually blaming themselves for what happened. Awww, I wanna go to dramaland right now to give all of them a hug.
We’re now slowly getting clues about the motive behind Hyun-soo’s murders. I’m guessing that Hyun-soo’s victims did something to the teenage girl he kept on seeing in his vision. Could she be his dongsaeng or girlfriend, perhaps?
Even if my deduction is correct, Hyun-soo still shouldn’t have killed those people. It’s never right to put justice in your hands. That’s why I was so frustrated with the last scene where Hyun-soo got hit by a car while fleeing from Prosecutor Cha (Kwon Na-ra) and her group. You can’t just die that easily, Hyun-soo! You still have to pay for all your sins!
Now, what baffles me is who planted the evidence at Hyun-soo’s apartment when Ji-wook clearly shut down the plan? Hmmm, could it be the man driving the car that hit Hyun-soo? Who is he? Any guess?
