Lookout: Episodes 19-20

Lookout seems to delight in keeping me on the razor’s edge of panic. Don’t get me wrong, I love a little suspense as much as the next drama addict, but this is getting ridiculous. It seems like Do-han has everyone out to get him, with his crew doubting him, allies making other plans, and his mortal enemy circling closer to a truth that could destroy everything. I swear I’m going to have white hair by the end of this show.

 
EPISODE 19 RECAP

Do-han and the priest both arrive at the church. Each thinks the other messaged them to meet, until Suji strolls down the aisle to reveal that she called them. She shows them the paper that she took from Do-han’s apartment and matches it with the paper that their boss sent messages with, proving that he is their team’s elusive leader.

The priest mutters that they never should have gotten her involved, but Do-han maintains his smarmy façade, claiming that she could have planted the paper there. Suji smiles and warns that he can’t talk his way out of this one. With the priest and prosecutor watching, Suji phones up Jin-ki on the Joint Investigation Team. Do-han looks distinctly uneasy as Suji says she’s turning herself in, instructing Soon-ae to come pick her up once they’ve traced her location.

Suji hangs up, and Do-han grits out that if she’s caught, it’s game over for her. Suji fires right back that if she is caught, then it’s over for him, too.

Do-han smirks as he says that she’s bluffing, at least until Soon-ae calls him to report that Suji just turned herself in, confirming that Suji’s call was real. As Do-han glares, Suji demands that he tell her all his plans before the police arrive.

With no other option, Do-han drops the act and admits that there’s someone he’s after, just like the rest of them. Suji argues that he’s been using them for his own plans, but Do-han reasons back that he provided the information they needed; she and the others pursued revenge for themselves, not for him.

Suji cuts through Do-han’s smooth logic and says accusatorially, “Why did you use Yoo-na for this?” The priest shifts guiltily, but Do-han snarls that if he hadn’t intervened on that case, then Chief Prosecutor Yoon would have just used someone else to cover it up.

With fire burning in her eyes, Suji yells that that doesn’t justify using her daughter’s death as an opportunity for his revenge. She cries, “You are no different from Yoon Seung-ro. You crush someone’s life so that you can achieve your goal, and you don’t even realize that it’s wrong.”

Do-han trembles with rage at being compared to his enemy, but they’re interrupted by Bomi and Kyung-soo bursting in through the side doors. Suji wipes away her tears as she tosses a recorder to Kyung-soo, asking if he got everything. Oh, snap!

As Soon-ae and her crew race to Suji’s location, she calls Eun-joong to fill him in. He asks if they’ve called Do-han yet, and gets suspicious when Soon-ae says she’s been unable to reach him after he hung up on her.

Well and truly cornered by his own people back in the church, Do-han asks what they want. Kyung-soo demands the intel on his mother’s case, and Bomi asks for his plan for catching Yoon. Do-han agrees, but he suggests that they relocate before the police arrive. Strangely, Suji assures him that they have lots of time.

The police speed to the traced location of Suji’s call… only to find an empty street. Soon-ae uncovers a burner phone, and Detective Nam snarks that Suji is just toying with them. Eun-joong runs up asks if Soon-ae has heard from Do-han yet, saying he has a feeling that he’s with Suji right now. Uh oh.

Said Do-han is currently chuckling as he works out how his team fooled him. We rewind to see that when Suji made the call to the police, she’d actually called Bomi. Kyung-soo had then used a burner phone to call the real detectives, and he and Bomi had held their phones together, patching Suji through to Jin-ki. After the call, they’d abandoned the burner and cutely ran off, high-fiving each other in the process.

Returning to the present, Do-han answers Eun-joong’s call and fibs that he’s on his way back to the police station, adding that he knew they’d never catch Suji. Suddenly, the sound of approaching sirens fills the church and Bomi checks her surveillance feed, displaying the incoming cops. Grimacing now, Do-han asks Eun-joong where he is. The prosecutor answers, “I’m on my way to catch Suji.”

Do-han hangs up, glowering at Suji. To stall for time, the priest meets the detectives and tells Soon-ae that the church is empty. Unfortunately, Eun-joong (who is being entirely too clever) remembers seeing the priest with Do-han and instructs the police to search inside. The detectives burst in, but Team Lookout has already vacated the church, so Eun-joong tells the cops to look for Do-han’s car.

Outside, Do-han and Suji are sneaking through the shadows when Detective Nam, Eun-joong, and some officers pass nearby. The two duck behind hedges, trapped mere feet away from the police party until another group of detectives call out. The cops and prosecutor race off, and Do-han and Suji resume their creeping.

Oh no! Bomi and Kyung-soo are holding hands and sprinting away when they’re caught by a group of detectives. In a heart-wrenching struggle, Kyung-soo and Bomi desperately try to hold on to each other, but the detectives rip them apart.

Kyung-soo manages to break free and shouts for Bomi, but she yells at him to run, grabbing on to a detective to keep him from giving chase. Left with no option, Kyung-soo runs away, and Soon-ae arrives to arrest Bomi for harboring a fugitive (Suji). As the detectives walk Bomi back, she spies a surveillance camera and immediately fakes a panic attack, crouching down and gasping while staring right at the camera.

Hiding in a bathroom, Kyung-soo watches Bomi through the hacked surveillance camera and gets an idea. Using the church’s speakers, he broadcasts the sound of gunshots. The cops run after the sound, leaving only one detective to hold the “asthmatic” Bomi.

The other group of detectives have located Do-han’s car and catch Do-han and Suji just as they are running to it. Thinking fast, Suji turns her gun on Do-han and he immediately follows her lead by slipping into the role of hostage.

Eun-joong asks what Suji is doing, though when she hesitates to answer, Do-han cuts in that she threatened him out of anger for Yoo-na’s case and made him lie to Eun-joong about his whereabouts. Suji “forces” Do-han into the car, and the two drive off.

Meanwhile, Kyung-soo sneaks up on Bomi’s lone guard and knocks him out. Heh, he apologizes politely to the unconscious detective before grabbing the keys to Bomi’s handcuffs so the two can make a break for it.

Do-han and Suji race off in his car while Kyung-soo and Bomi drive away in theirs. However, both pairs have cops chasing them. Suji warns Do-han of their police tail (Do-han: “I have eyes, too.”) and tells him to switch with her if he’s not a good driver. In response, Do-han smirks and steps on the gas.

Both cars and their pursuers weave through traffic until Do-han and Suji pull even with Kyung-soo and Bomi. Suji motions at them to keep going, then Do-han spins the car around, blocking the cops and allowing the younger pair to drive away.

Suji snaps up the gun to maintain the hostage charade, and Do-han even raises his hands for effect as Detective Nam, Soon-ae, and Eun-joong all stare at the pair. Suji gives the order to drive, so Do-han whips the car into reverse and peels off backwards through oncoming cars, leaving the cops tangled in traffic. Yup, he’s a good driver.

Free of their pursuers, Suji backhandedly congratulates Do-han on his driving, but when he suggests that they part ways since the hostage sham won’t last, she brings the gun back up to his head. Suji tells him that once they solve Kyung-soo’s mother’s case, Do-han is to turn himself in and reveal the truth of how he tampered with Yoo-na’s case on Yoon’s orders.

Do-han just sighs and says that it won’t work, warning her that she has no idea what Yoon Seung-ro is really like. Turning introspective, Do-han says that Yoon is someone who can turn an innocent man into a spy, and then not only refuse to admit it, but completely forget that it happened.

We flashback to see Do-han’s father and stepmother in their rural home. Do-han narrates that after spending six years in jail for espionage, his father had finally started to readjust to living again. But one day, Yoon and his wife (who were hiking) showed up at their house looking for lodging. Do-han’s father had come face to face with the man responsible for his torture and wrongful imprisonment, and Yoon hadn’t even recognized him.

Unable to cope with the knowledge that Yoon was living a carefree life after ruining his own, Do-han’s father descended into drinking. His wife (the priest’s mother) tried to stop him, and when the teenaged priest and Do-han came home, they found Do-han’s father sitting in a stupor as his wife lay dead beside him.

Returning to the present, Do-han recounts how he tried to make a case that his father suffered from PTSD due to torture, but in the eyes of the law, his father was a spy. In a dead voice, Do-han says that his dad was sent back to prison – this time as a murderer – and now, Yoon is about to become the attorney general.

Do-han laughs manically at the irony, then his face fades back into a blank stare and says, “He’s like that, Yoon Seung-ro.” Suji lowers her gun and asks how Do-han plans to catch such a man.

At the police station, the team hasn’t been able to find any trace of Do-han and Suji. Eun-joong is noticeably silent, and Soon-ae asks how he knew that Do-han was being held hostage. Lost to his own thoughts, Eun-joong walks out, Soon-ae hot on his heels.

She confronts him in the hallway, asking if there is some connection between Do-han and Suji. Instead of answering, Eun-joong brings up how Soon-ae once said she wasn’t sure if she could arrest her friend. Looking conflicted, Eun-joong asks, “Then how does that make us different from the chief prosecutor?” He argues that if they start to bend the law because of personal issues, then they’re doing the same thing as Yoon.

Leaving Soon-ae more confused than ever, Eun-joong walks off to call Prosecutor Park and inform him that he has the evidence he wanted.

Suji brings Do-han to Lookout HQ, and Do-han strolls in, plopping down on the couch while Bomi and Kyung-soo glare at him.

Meanwhile, Eun-joong turns over the black box video of Do-han saving Suji to Prosecutor Park and Assemblywoman Chae, telling them that Yoon ordered Suji to be killed. Park worries that the video won’t be enough to directly implicate Yoon, but Eun-joong emphatically insists that it’s enough to start an investigation so that they can uncover the truth.

Assemblywoman Chae notes his fervor, and Eun-joong admits, “I want to show someone that my way was right.” Chae assures him that she’ll use the evidence well, but she and Prosecutor Park trade some shifty glances.

Back in their hideout, Do-han reveals that Kyung-soo’s mother was a witness at his dad’s trial, providing the false testimony that helped convict his father. Kyung-soo doesn’t believe that his mother could do something like that, but Do-han counters that blackmailing can change people.

A brief flashback of Do-han’s father’s trial shows Kyung-soo’s then heavily pregnant mother lying on the stand to protect her unborn baby (Kyung-soo). Do-han adds that she had agreed to stand witness for his father’s retrial, this time telling the truth, but the “Viper” detective found out, and Kyung-soo’s mother disappeared soon after.

Suji asks if Do-han knows anything about the detective other than his “Viper” nickname, and Do-han shows them a picture of Detective Nam. Suji snatches the photo and asks if Do-han is sure, and he replies that that’s for them to uncover.

Elsewhere, the black box video Eun-joong gave to Assemblywoman Chae is playing on a screen. The camera pans around as we see that it’s Yoon watching it, with Prosecutor Park sitting right next to him. Park calls the video a “gift” from Assemblywoman Chae, and Yoon smiles as he watches Do-han rescuing Suji. Well, shit.

 
EPISODE 20 RECAP

Assemblywoman Chae calls Yoon to ask if he enjoyed her “gift,” and Yoon laughs that he’ll take it as a gesture of her cooperation. Afterwards, Yoon thinks back on all his suspicions regarding Do-han.

In their headquarters, Do-han instructs the Lookout group to keep a close eye on Detective Nam. Kyung-soo is eager to start looking into him, but Suji argues that, once again, Do-han is just using them for his gain. Do-han explains that his job is to make sure that the detective testifies at Yoon’s hearing, which is why they need someone like him right next to Yoon.

Except, at that moment, Yoon is calling Detective Nam to look into something – without telling Do-han.

Eun-joong broods over Do-han’s taunt about how his method of following the law will not help him catch people like Yoon when Soon-ae calls with the news that they’ve found Do-han’s car. Lights flashing and sirens wailing, everyone races to the location to find a handcuffed and sulking Do-han alone in his car.

Soon-ae asks where Suji went, and Do-han replies in a bored voice that she couldn’t threaten him anymore, so she ditched him and ran. He rants that they should have caught Suji at the church, playing the part of the pouty prosecutor to a T. Eun-joong, however, doesn’t buy the act for one minute. Do-han yells at him to catch Suji, and Eun-joong turns back to promise, “I will. And I’ll catch her accomplices, too.”

Ugh, Shi-wan the Psychopath has successfully wormed his way into Se-won’s trust, and is actually posing prettily for her while she sketches a giant portrait of him. Se-won’s mother calls her, but she ignores it as she explains to Shi-wan that her mom calls her all the time to check in.

Shi-wan comments that there are so many frustrating people in the world, and when Se-won says she wishes they would all disappear, he agrees. Se-won smiles bashfully, adding that she didn’t know they were so alike. No! Bad Se-won. Do not bond with the child killer!

Team Lookout is on a new mission and Kyung-soo, disguised as a police officer, carries an evidence box into the police station. Bomi worries about him going in alone, but Suji points out that he’s the only one who the detectives haven’t identified. Inside, the Joint Investigation Team is discussing Bomi and the as-yet-unidentified second accomplice that helped her escape last night.

Kyung-soo enters the room, and Do-han smoothly lies to the others that he requested the evidence box. Do-han directs him to put the box over on a cabinet, and as the group returns to the case, Kyung-soo sets down the box and secretly hooks up a router/gadget behind the box. Unfortunately, Jin-ki’s spidey-senses are tingling, so he follows Kyung-soo outside and stops him in the hallway.

Eun-joong — looking right at Do-han — tells the group that there’s one more accomplice that they need to find: whoever sent the suspect pictures to Bomi. He suggests that the priest might be involved, and while Do-han attempts to shut the idea down, both Soon-ae and Detective Nam agree that the priest was dodgy.

Out in the hallway, Jin-ki confronts Kyung-soo, suspicious that he hasn’t met him before. Poor Kyung-soo tries to fib that he just started working, but then Jin-ki notes that he isn’t wearing a name tag and asks for his name. Kyung-soo fumbles for answers, but thankfully, Do-han walks out and shoos Kyung-soo back to his “post” while pulling Jin-ki back into the meeting.

Kyung-soo returns to Suji in the car and cues up the device he placed in the station, allowing him to hack into Detective Nam’s laptop. The three watch as the shady detective starts researching the priest. Kyung-soo tries to hack the detective’s phone as well, but curses to realize that he has extra protection on his phone blocking a remote hack, and the only way into the phone now is to physically unlock it.

Bomi chimes in that that’s no problem – they can use the boss: “He made us sweat so much. He should at least stand up for once.” Do-han, who’s listening in, pithily points out that if he could get to the phone, he would have done so already. Suji says that they need to do this carefully, so Do-han tells them to focus on trailing Nam while he works on a way into his phone.

Do-han stops Eun-joong in the hallway, whining that the prosecutor seems especially cold towards him recently. He asks if there’s something going on, but Eun-joong says that’s what he wants to ask. Agitated, Eun-joong demands to know what Do-han has been plotting while working for Yoon.

Instead of answering, Do-han reveals something he’s learned about Eun-joong: He and Prosecutor Park are backed by Assemblywoman Chae. Eun-joong asks if this is a threat, but Do-han counters that it’s a warning and adds that he doesn’t want to see Eun-joong in danger. “You are the only prosecutor I can give any credit to,” Do-han adds.

Do-han starts to walk away when Eun-joong calls out to him, “That’s too bad. I think you are already in danger.” Before Do-han can answer, Yoon phones him.

Suji trails Detective Nam to a coffee shop, where he meets a man who appears to be a colleague. Neither she nor Bomi recognize him, so Suji snaps some pictures of the mystery guy.

Do-han is summoned to Yoon’s office, and the chief prosecutor angrily reminds him of his promise to look into the detective in charge of Bomi’s family’s case. Do-han replies that he was just about to give his report, but they’re interrupted when Detective Nam calls Yoon. It turns out that the man that Nam was meeting with was the detective from Bomi’s case. Nam reports that the detective had met with Do-han a few years ago, and Do-han had asked a lot of questions regarding Bomi’s case.

Yoon hangs up, and Do-han reports that he met with the detective, but he didn’t remember anything about the case. Yoon asks if this means that Do-han can’t find who sent the suspect information to Suji, but Do-han promises to find another way. Do-han starts to leave when Yoon asks, “How long will you deceive me?” (*Gulp.*)

Do-han turns around slowly and asks what he means. Both men stare at each other for a long moment, then Yoon brings up Do-han’s promise to catch Suji, demanding to know how much longer it will take. Do-han lets out an almost imperceptible breath and suggests setting a trap, using Suji’s mother (Grandma) as bait.

On their hideout’s rooftop, Suji joins Kyung-soo as he looks at his mother’s missing person flyer. Kyung-soo says that both his dad and brother want him to give up searching, and even Bomi doesn’t believe his mother is still alive, but he just can’t give up. “I have a feeling she’s out there waiting for me,” he adds.

Kyung-soo smiles at Suji and sniffs that he misses his mom. From around the corner, Bomi listens to their conversation.

Shi-wan’s mom brings him a study snack and gently chastises him for his slipping grades, reminding him that he can’t get into his father’s Alma Mater with his scores. Shi-wan grimaces long-sufferingly at the reminder, and Mom lets it drop.

Mom notices Se-won’s portrait of Shi-wan, and he admits that someone else drew it. Mom is excited that he’s made a friend and asks if he really likes this person. Shi-wan answers, “I think something fun will happen if we hang out.” Shi-wan smiles slightly to himself, and Mom looks worried again.

In the hideout, Suji uses Shi-wan’s hacked phone to listen in on his conversation with his mom.

Do-han joins Team Lookout at their base, bringing news that Suji needs to go home since Grandma is very sick. As Suji worries, Do-han admits that the media is planning to release Grandma’s condition tomorrow, adding that the police will use it as a trap to lure Suji in.

Kyung-soo puffs up and calls the detectives scum for using a mother against her daughter, until Do-han interrupts to say that the trap was his idea. Suji asks why he’s warning her then, and Do-han reminds her that his plans will fail if she gets caught.

Do-han continues to say that the police aren’t in place yet, so there are only two undercover cops watching Grandma’s restaurant. The others are surprised when he volunteers himself to go with her, saying that the police won’t suspect him.

Yoon calls Detective Nam and tells him that Do-han will move soon. When he hangs up, we that that the detective recorded the call to his phone.

In front of Grandma’s restaurant, Do-han successfully lures the cops away from their stakeout, allowing Suji to slip into her old home unnoticed. Suji finds Grandma lying on the bed, holding a family picture. She softly calls out to her, and at first, Grandma doesn’t believe that she’s real.

Suji just smiles sadly back at her until Grandma reaches out and pulls her daughter into a hug. The two women embrace, crying.

Do-han chats up the reluctant detectives at a local joint, trying to pour them drinks in spite of their insistence that they’re on duty. He gets distracted when Kyung-soo sends him a message with the pictures of the guy Detective Nam met. Do-han immediately recognizes the man as the detective from Bomi’s case and realizes that his conversation earlier with Yoon was a test.

Right on cue, one of the detective gets a call, and from his cagey looks at Do-han, it’s probably Detective Nam telling him to stall. Suddenly, the once straight-laced detective is now happily pouring soju, and Do-han scoffs at the turnaround, recognizing that they’ve been had. He ducks into the restroom, then sprints out to Suji’s home.

Do-han arrives and quietly walks inside as Suji and Grandma talk. His eye catches on a picture of Suji and little Yoo-na, and he thinks back to the day the girl was pushed off the roof. Turns out, Do-han had been there watching when Shi-wan had wandered off hand-in-hand with Yoo-na. And then, Do-han had glanced up. (Wait, is he looking up at the roof? Did he know what would happen?!)

In the apartment, Do-han’s eyes fill with tears, but he quietly speaks through the door to alert Suji that they need to go. Suji promises Grandma that she’s ok, and Grandma can barely eke out that Suji should leave before she tries to stop her.

Do-han and Suji sneak back to his car, and Do-han shares his fear that this was all a trap, adding that Yoon is testing him.

Suji slides into the backseat as Do-han starts to drive away, but he’s suddenly cut off by Detective Nam. Nam peers into Do-han’s car, clearly looking around, and asks what Do-han is doing here.

The two men are all smiles with each other as Nam says that they suspect Suji to be in the area, but the undercurrent of tension breaks through when Nam starts to insist that he check Do-han’s car – you know, for Do-han’s “safety.”

Do-han grits out that Suji isn’t here, but the detective heads toward the backseat door anyways. He starts to pull the door open as Do-han glances back nervously.

 
COMMENTS

I really don’t see how Do-han’s master plan is going to work anymore, since everything he did hinged on keeping his cover and gathering evidence against Yoon for the attorney general hearing. Now, not only is Yoon on to him, but Assemblywoman Chae — who is leading the hearing — seems to be in Yoon’s pocket. I’m holding out a small hope that she hasn’t really crossed over to the dark side. She seemed far too clever and determined to let one threat send her running to Yoon’s side, so maybe she’s just trying to gain his trust and betray him later? Please?

I admit, I spent a good bit of this episode being annoyed by Suji, especially since her refusal to see the bigger picture keeps threatening Do-han’s plans. However, I did a little rethinking and remembered that she doesn’t know what we know. To her, Do-han is just the man that let her daughter’s killer go free a year ago. Since then, he’s made a special effort to be an absolute ass to her and has used her as bait for his own plans. If I look at it from her point of view, not only do I get why she doesn’t trust him, I‘d argue that she’d be an idiot to believe anything he says.

It’s sad, but there is truth to the adage that it takes a monster to catch a monster, and Do-han has willingly turned himself into a beast to catch Yoon. But I’m worried about how far gone he already is. What was he doing following Shi-wan that day? More importantly, did he know? Because if he knew what a psychopath the kid is, and he knowingly let him walk off with Suji’s daughter, then he may as well have pushed her off the roof himself.

One other worry I have is in regards to Eun-joong. To be honest, I wrote him off early on as the white knight who never gets the girl because he refuses to get his shining armor dirty. Now, I’m starting to think that I have to re-evaluate him in a major way. It seems like both Suji and Do-han’s assertions that the justice system can’t win have twisted something in his head. What started out as an encouragement to Suji to believe in her badge has turned into a downright desperate need to prove that his method – following the law – is right. At this point, he knows that Suji and Do-han are fighting against Yoon, yet, because their method of fighting doesn’t follow the law, he gives them no leeway.

What really gave me chills, however, was in Eun-joong’s conversation with Soon-ae where he refused to bend the rules. It’s a slippery slope between assuming that the law is always justified, and using the law to justify. I kept getting this strange feeling during the scene, as though I was looking at how (dare I say it) Yoon started out. We’ve seen Yoon spout out ideals regarding a perfect justice system, then conveniently forget the murder and mayhem it took to achieve. I’m worried that Eun-joong may come to a point where he’ll choose to sacrifice Suji and Do-han in the name of the law, then convince himself over and over that he did the right thing, until one day, he doesn’t even remember what really happened.

Granted, this is a rather dark path and a lot of conjecture without much fact, but just in case, we should all be ready to sprint for the hills should Eun-joong rise to his villainous potential.

Wow, this episode was fun and tbh it's a lot more fun with Dohan together with the team, but that exactly what I don't need now. I don't even know how Dohan would survive with Yoon suspecting, and team trio still grasping to trust him. But nevertheless I'm loving Suji and Dohan saving their kiddos by 'sacrificing' themselves. And I believe more or less Suji actually enjoys working with Dohan in that hostage scenario.

However It's just ironic how Eunjoong tries so hard to keep the justice, little did he know the evidence he provided actually helps the monster he hated the most destroying the justice. This is why I had very little affection for him since the beginning, for how naive he is. Suji was absolutely naive in the beginning, but she learnt how these shady stuff works and shift her way to achieve the same goal. Eunjoong however, felt like he actually refuse to accept that following rules not always get you to the right point when nobody actually follows those. He refused to change his way of working that actually led him to wrong goals. I don't even know what to expect from Dohan witnessing Yuna on the roof, omg.

Suji and her mom will forever made me cry.

I love the scene of Sooji and Dohan in one car driving next to Bomi and Kyung Soo in the other, especially the glances they give each other - focused, but worried about each other and how they're all going to get out of this pickle. It really did feel like Sooji and Dohan are the mom and dad and they're saving their kids.

I feel some derision towards Eunjoong though it is commendable that he isn't tempted to bend the law. But that also makes him no more than a robot. It made my heart hurt when Soon-Ae was like she feels conflicted about following the law and arresting Sooji -especially when Sooji is right there and she sees her face and hears SJ's voice and the law feels so far away. And EJ basically poured water over those feelings with his naysaying. And I hate how now it's become a "I must prove i'm right" thing for him.

I also want to say that EJ is able to be this naive because he was raised in a well-off family and was sheltered. SJ, DH, BM, and KS were vulnerable because they were pretty much blue collar families. If EJ's family was killed like BM's family, could the perpetrators have gotten away like that?

True. I felt that way to watching that scene. It's like they are KS and BM' parents sacrificing themself for their kids. I don't know how this team will survive ESP doo Han but it does give me "Monday can't you come faster, ayyy"

I think with Eun-joong is more a matter of pride. He can't stand Do-han's guts (I think he did too good a job in making them dislike him!), and does not want Do-han to be right.

I'm definitely worried now for Do Han's plan. Now that his cover is blown, how can he finish getting his revenge. I understand Suji's problems with him, but they need him and his skills to achieve what they all want. As for Bomi and Kyung Soo, I loved the little high five they gave each other and their escape. They work so well together and are so cute. I wonder how this path that crosses the line between justice and dirty politics will end.

Thank you for the recap!

I loooved the car chase and the scenes between Suji and Dohan in the car. I've never minded KYK as an actor though I've never loved him either, but he killed it in that scene. LSY was on point there too. Definitely on the series highlights for me so far.

I love that Suji got to confront Dohan and rip into him with all of her righteous fury too, even if her plan had me wanting to tear my hair out in worry. Neither of them are logically wrong; Yoon would've certainly protected his son with or without Dohan's involvement, but Dohan still used Yoona's death as a stepping stone and that's still fucked up. None of that changes Suji's broken, grieving heart.

Eunjoong needs to quit being both too clever and too naive. He's also going to give me white hairs! I wanted to reach through the screen and stop him when he handed evidence over to the assemblywoman. I think you're definitely on to something as far as his view of the justice system now, @candidclown , and that he might chose to sacrifice our protagonists in order to protect that view that The System Always Works - even when it so clearly does not.

I have the same feelings about KYK - didn't mind him uch as an actor. he was not bad, but not impressive either. He did seem to smirk a little too much. But the car chase through the scene in the car, especially that ironic and pained laugh - really caught my attention and impressed me.

I also like how both SJ and DH are right and wrong. And for EJ, of course the system always works- for him. Probably can't imagine how the system can fail other people. Probably thinks the others just aren't using the system right.

I really hope he sees like the light soon and maybe become buddies with DH. They are such an odd couple. I just know EJ wants to roll his eyes every time DH puts on his foppish act.

EJ seems to know the system can fail (just look at Yoona's case), but he also seems to believe that the system will eventually win out for the righteous in the end. Which is a noble thought! But an unrealistic one.

I can almost understand his thought process - if Suji hadn't gone around the law and barged into Shiwan's school with a gun; if Dohan hadn't helped Yoon sweep Yoona's murder under the rug; if only these guys had played by rules, everything would work out for the good guys. But that's ignoring that Yoon would have had it covered up even without Dohan's help and that Suji would have reacted with that same grief and rage exactly because she had been let down by the system. When Eunjoong said he'd wanted to show "that person" that the system still works, he could have been referring to either of them though my gut says it was Suji. He's trying to tell her "Trust in the system! Trust in ME!" which is why he's working so hard to do things the "right", by-the-book way.

I hope he eventually opens his eyes to the fact that the system doesn't work for everyone and that's exactly why the vigilante crew has been working around it, instead of through it. It's a hard lesson, but one he needs to learn in the Lookout universe. And yes, I want more frenemies time with Dohan too! lol

OMG, this show is soooooooo good. I totally admire Kim Young Kwang's acting. When he was telling Suji his backstory and he laughs, you just see the pain hiding just under the surface. And the scene when he stands quietly outside the door when Suji and her mom were catching up... hang on *sniffle* *tries to get back to typing* *spends five minutes crying* That just broke my heart. You can see that he felt something during that. I wish that we could see more of soft-and-mushy Young Kwang but him being a jerk all the time makes those moments all the more special. Speaking of special moments, the more I see Kyung Soo and Bomi, the more I want them to end up as a couple. I know that's not the point, but please make it happen, show. Please?

@candidclown I know what you mean, this episode had me so tense from start to finish.

I think Do Han should abandon his master plan quickly cause he's about to get outed as most people suspect him now. And I'm a tad disappointed in Prosecutor Eun Joong for turning in the USB drive when it was against his instincts and better judgment. At least he's beginning to doubt himself and question whether he's way of following the law blindly makes him a tad like Chief Prosecutor Yoon. Let's see where this all leads.

I thought the flashback of Dohan following Suji's daughter and Shi wan was pure conjecture on his part, that he wasn't really there on that day but was imagining the scenario in his mind.? I could be wrong, but if he followed them then Bomi and Kyung Soo would have caught him on camera, wouldn't they?

Yeah, I suspect it was conjecture as well, but it's not 100% clear. I feel like if he'd actually been there, we would've seen something about it before? Either through evidence or Dohan recalling it to himself before this episode.

In Dohan's defense, even if he was really there and saw them go past, this is the first crime (that we know of) that Shiwan's committed. He might have thought it was weird to see Shiwan with a little kid, but I doubt he thought "hey, that asshole's going to shove a child off a rooftop, I better not do anything so I can catch his dad." Unless Dohan somehow had advance knowledge of what Shiwan was plotting, which would put him firmly in awful villain territory instead of morally gray protagonist. We haven't seen any sign of that as viewers, though.

That's what I think too. I think he noticed Shi Wan with Yoona. Thought it was odd he was hanging out with a little kid. Maybe even saw them hanging out on the roof. Never would he have imagined SW just shoving Yoona off the roof like some psychopath serial killer.

What scared me the most this episode was the flashback to Dohan following Shiwan. Boy, if you suspected something bad was going to happen and did nothing...I can't even conceive the idea.

I definitely have warmed up to Dohan and I always dig these anti-heroes. But I still have trouble understanding him and accepting his actions. I know the church scene drew many to the edge of their seats (likewise!) but I loved it. Sooji voiced those arguments that have been in the back of my mind for a few episodes now. I've kept telling myself that if someone can take down Yoon, it's Dohan and his plan. Yet, I always go back to square one and ask myself if it justifies all the things he does. He used a little girl's death to play his game!! He let the kid murderer go. What if Shiwan hurts or kills someone else. Is his revenge worth it? How much will his revenge cost him and others? And like Sooji said, does he realize the implications of his actions and how 'wrong' they appear? In his defense, I know he has had some brief moments of regret and sympathy for Sooji and the team. Plus Sooji's words obviously left an impression.

It's a vicious cycle of thoughts. Ugh I love you Lookout but you make me debate myself too much.

im glad you said this, because its one thing i think i dont quite "get"--- when Suji accused DH of using her daughter's death, what does she mean? Is she saying that DH let Shi-wan go just because he wanted to gain favor with Yoon so he could take him down later? Is that the "using"? (I'm genuinely asking--so sorry!) If that IS the issue in question: I guess I can see more of what DH was thinking, because even if *he* hadn't let SW go, someone else would. It seems pretty unlikely that Yoon's son would have to pay for his crime. And I just assumed DH knew that, and this was his way of keeping the ball in his court somehow. Having some control, being the person involved (instead of someone else that DH would get on his side). Maybe I am giving DH too much credit. I just assumed he was planning to get SW later on---that he wasn't really letting him off the hook so much as keeping his hands on a longer leash.

Yes, you're right that Suji can't forgive Do Han for letting Shi wan go in order to get closer to CP Yoon.

From her perspective, she only wants justice for her daughter's murder. So it makes sense that she's angry with DH for not prosecuting Shi wan. Remember that up to this point, she doesn't have Do Han's knowledge of how underhanded and powerful Yoon is

Agree with another beanie's comments that both SJ and DH have logical reasons to hate each other (well SJ more than DH); she because he used her daughter's death as just another stepping stone in his revenge scheme; and, he's frustrated that she doesn't seem to get the bigger picture and doesn't seem to realise that her actions risk unravelling all his plans.

Thanks for the recap CandidClown! I agree with everything you've said, so on point! Especially about Eunjoong. He may go dark without even realizing it or thinking he's right. That is the difference between him and Dohan. At least Dohan knows what he is doing, even if it is killing him, his soul, his self and affecting the people around him. He knows he is no saint.

This was another set of great episodes! I loved seeing our Lookout team members in the same room!
I like how Suji, Bomi and Kyungsoo put the leader in his place! Take that for what you've done! I love how the team is enjoying being able to get back at him, and are not welcoming him with open arms, for good reasons. He will have to earn their trust, and respect! Make him work for it! But once he has it, I hope our leader will also become a part of their little family. They all need each other, and in the end, have only each other. I was glad they were able to usay their piece and confront their leader, but oh Suji, you put the entire team at risk!

Yes, this show continues to keep us on our toes! Just when we think things are settling, they throw something at us to shake us up all over again! Kwan Woo/Dohan having seen ShiWan and Yuna at the location of the incident could have so many outcomes. He could have been called away and had to leave and not seen what happened. He couldn't have known the outcome, and probably didn't know Yuna was Suji's daughter at the time or that ShiWan is a psychopath. But if he was there and saw what happened, he is a witness. I don't think he let it happen, as he is not that evil, but he couldn't stop it, just being there will make him guilty. Especially if he didn't come forward as a witness when they so desperately needed a witness...he is in trouble, not just with Suji and the rest of the team, but with himself. It looks bad, very bad...but I think there will be a twist, this show has been doing a good job of introducing twists! Else he will need redemption big time....He is both bad and good, which makes Kwan Woo/Dohan such an interesting and complex character. And why it is so hard to understand him. Revenge can turn you into someone you're not, make you do things you never thought you would, and he probably will have to find himself again once it is all over, live with what he's become...His journey is not an easy one. KYK is doing an amazing job portraying both, and his inner struggles. Because Kwan Woo/Dohan is struggling.

I would actually like his identity to be fully exposed, so Yoon knows exactly who he is dealing with. I would like to see the Lookout team be feared by Yoon! But I am not sure how they would go about getting their justice if no longer working in shadows...but it seems that Dohan only needs one more witness...so maybe they are almost there anyway. Such a good show!

Ah, damn cliffhanger, and no preview ,?
Our vigilante team together in one room, have been waiting so long for this. Am loving the awkward tension, "this is not a housewarming" indeed, hahaha. They're doing teamwork like well oiled machine, why why why aren't they doing this from the beginning, stupid Do-han! So many crossed wires between all our good guys, will take awhile to untangle.
Was pleasantly surprised that Do-han totally unmasked himself to Soo-ji; the car was his confessional booth. Was thinking the show was paving the way for romance for this two, at least from Do-han side, but then there's him witnessing Yoo-na with Shi-wan, yarghh, is this another guilt issue. But I refuse to believe Do-han would knowingly put a child in danger!
@candidclown comment on Eun-joong is an eye opener, but noooooo, don't bring Eun-joong to the dark side! He actually still protect the priest, who he sees as a victim I think. Maybe the congresswoman's betrayal will shake some sense into him, and the end game would be Eun-joong joining the team for Yoon's final take out. With Do-han's cover all blown they would need somebody amidst the prosecutor in the end.

Well, Do Han is not stupid, think of it.
Because they started to work together, the danger that Do Han will be discovered has increased. It would be much more difficult for Do Han to keep his cover intact for such a long time if they worked together like this from the beginning.
However, I think it would have been better for everyone if he had given that at least some information about the nature of his revenge or his precarious situation.

To be honest, I love how Suji, Kyungsoo and Bomi played Dohan despite the imminent danger.

The cherry on top was Suji giving Dohan a piece of her mind. I don't believe Dohan ever paused for a moment during his revenge and looked back at his actions. Are they really justified? Do the means really justify the ends? I love that nothing is black in white in this drama.

Nonetheless, I'm worried and hope Do Han will survive in the prosecutor's office. His flashback is hopefully just a red herring, otherwise...

@candidclown I love your assessment regarding Eun Joong. His holier-than-thou attitude is getting on my nerves and it's almost ironic that he's becoming indirectly corrupt by helping the assemblywoman who made a deal with Yoon Seung Ro.

I actually have this weird idea now that Dohan's cover has been blown that Eunjoong will be their prosecutor ally.

This is the episode I was waiting for! I'm so happy that su-ji And Do-han are finally on the same page (albeit reluctantly) and are now actively making plans on what their next move should be. If the car chase scene was anything to go by these two are going to be absolutely formidable together! As much as i love them individually, together do-han and su-ji make the perfect team by balancing each other out. He's the manipulative mastermind and she's the reckless brawn. She gives him pause when he would rather just go all or for revenge and brings compassion and a little heart to his ruthless revenge driven edge. While do-han will provide her reckless energy with a direction through his plans. Now that everyone and their mother is out to get them, I can't wait for our lookout team to badass their way out and get the bad guys!!

That's why I'm glad that the team found him out in time. His revenge needs to be balanced out...else he might end up like Yoon and Eun-joong - all self-righteous about what they think is the right thing to do, regardless of who they affect.

Actually, Yoon, Eun-joong, Do-han and Su-ji I think are all flawed in their self-righteousness. Yoon and EJ, we have already discussed at length. Do-han is moving on the edge, already using and manipulating others to get what he wants, but thankfully still having some semblance of humanity. Su-ji, too is rather self-righteous. She keeps thinking that Yoona's death gives her the right to barge into the school and threaten Si-won, without realising (or ignoring) the consequences. The way she refuses to follow Do-han's instructions, has put herself, the team and his plans in danger.
That's why this drama is good and realistic.

@crazyahjummafan I totally agree with your analysis! They are all very flawed human beings and as frustrating as it is sometimes (like Su-ji's refusal to follow the damn mission) I think that's what makes them so very interesting to follow. They are all very much unpredictable which is very exciting but also so bad for the heart! Too much adrenaline!

I love that the team is somewhat on the same page right now. As flawed and weak (or helpless) as they are as individuals, I am hoping they can balance each other out and become a truly formidable team. In this way they can also keep each other in check and prevent any one member from going off on their own or jumping off the edge! I am so excited to watch how things unfold from here on out.

At the beginning it seemed strange to me that Do-han seemed to be denying that he was the boss... He pretty much announced with a loudspeaker and spray-painted letters 10 feet tall previously when dropped the envelope out of his car in front of Su-ji.

@lordcobol Lol I think he could sense that Su-ji was up to no good in this episode and that she might even have something planned that might ultimately jeopardize Do-han's plans. Despite almost announcing that he's the leader, I think he would have liked for her to find it out on his terms rather than surprising him with an ambush. Hence I think he was stalling for time trying to think of another plan or trying to talk his way out of this situation.

So much badass. The car chase scene was epic, but what really got me was how formidable the Suji-Dohan team was. Take a strong, courageous, no-holds-barred Alpha woman and pair her up with a smart, scheming and confident Alpha man and sparks fly. When they're on the same page, they're unstoppable. I could watch a whole show of both of them bickering and pushing each other's buttons, each not giving an inch. So sexy.

I love Do Han, he's such a complex character. But I fear for him. My heart sank when he appeared behind Yuna and boy killer. Why, why? Are you so far gone that there's no coming back from the dark side? With the way things are going, his character arc is ending in a not-so-happy-place. At this rate, I'll be satisfied if he goes to jail, but stays alive. Cos I don't see how he's going to end up safe and sound from all this.

The only good outcome I could think of is that Dohan could be the witness they need to catch ShiWan, if indeed he was there. Wasn't it because they had no witness that they couldn't get ShiWan? So in true Dohan fashion, he would bring both good and bad elements. But, I definitely think there could be a twist. This show has been surprising us!

@phoebe123 so far this show has proven that everything is not as it seems. So I am holding out hope that despite Do-han being there he had no idea Yoona would be killed.

I think with everything ramping up, Yoon will fall in the next two episodes or so. And the final villain will be the assembly woman.

It sounds corny, but it seems that there will be a point where the scriptwriter will want them to change from just revenge to actually being vigilantes of Justice.

Didn't Soonae already warn Se Won to stay away from him and she didn't seem to think much of it? Se Won is in the rebellious kid stage right now, being bullied because of her mom, not taking her calls and slamming the door to her room when she gets home. But, she did say she will only believe what she sees, not rumors, so I hope she "sees" something that will either save her or incriminate ShiWan. Who knows, she might turn out be the helpful one and her relationship with Soonae will improve. It does need mending.

You're not the only one! That's why I really appreciate these recaps as this show is pretty complex...need all the extra insights and information! Plus not being Korean there are things that I don't pick up on, like what their social security numbers look like...it's on the photo but I wouldn't know what it is...

I got confused by the timeline, thinking 17 years would make Kyungsoo 17 years old and Bomi 13! But his mom actually was a witness for the spy trial, not the murder, which would add 6 years from what I understand...so Kyungsoo is more like 23 and Bomi 19. And Dohan's life has been in turmoil for 23 years! I feel for him...it's pretty much his childhood and his youth and early adult life taken away from him by Yoon! First growing up without a father, and then being the son of a murderer and dealing with his dad who has become schizophrenic...I hope he can find some peace soon...preferably here on Earth!

Oh my gosh. I'm on tenterhooks. Although they've managed to squirm their way out of several near-arrests, the team's been dangerously careless in these two/four episodes. I really feel like I'm just waiting for the ball to drop. And in a way, it feels almost a little rushed - considering how Do-han (it's easier to refer to him with his public-facing name) has been so careful all this time. I can't believe he's been making all these rookie mistakes. Like getting Kwang-soo to set up the wifi router when that's so risky.

I'm only breathing easier after this week's cliffhangers cuz I reckon (I hope I'm not proven wrong) he's smart enough to have tried to confuse Detective Nam. Please tell me the tartan in the back of the car is just her jacket (as a ruse) and NOT actually Soo-ji!

By the way, I thought it was totally badass the way our three strangers bonded together so tightly, they decided to gang up and force Do-han to show hand. Yeah team!

PS. Before I watched part 20, I was so sure that the episode title, "Your Daugther is Still Okay" was making a sinister reference to Soon-ae's daughter. Thank god, nothing has happened yet, but I know it's a matter of time...

I'm still frustrated in how naive EJ is and how he is into being strictly using only the legal ways to get Yoon. I hope that he won't endanger the Lookout team.

As for DH, I'm sure that Yoon is totally no longer trust him and he can no longer use his original plan of staying by Yoon's side for his revenge plan. Maybe and I hope that EJ would end up to be the only prosecutor stayed there to assist them to apprehend Yoon and his son.

Am i the only one who totally loves Dohan? Yoon is an intelligent guy. He trusts no one and leaves no trace of his involvment in any crime and ofcourse he has power.. only way to bring him down is by getting close to him.. Dohan is behaving like a jack ass because thats the only way to get close to Yoon.. His life is pitiful. He has no family and his dad doesnt even recognise him.. he also had to bear the anger of his brother (priest).. i hope they give a romantic angle in his relation with sooji..

Things just keep going from bad to worse for Team Lookout. I can't believe that Do-han was there the day Yoo-na died. Did he really know? I've liked him since the beginning, and have been silently advocating himself (to myself) and defending him (in my head) to Suji and Team. Now, I don't know what to think. Did he not know what would happen to her? Or did he know and just let it happen? What if he ran up there but was too late to save her and then just took the opportunity to ingratiate himself to Yoon? I have so many questions and so many mixed emotions about all this now. I just want him to be a good guy, and to be a hero, and to get his revenge on Yoon and Shi-wan. I am glad that the rest of the team knows about him, and have discovered some of his past. I am wondering though if that's all that there is, however. This is a really detailed story and plot, and I don't think we have all the answers yet. But that could just be wishful thanking. I do hope that, when it comes down to it, Suji, Bomi, and Kyung-soo will ban together to save Do-han now that he's in Yoon's cross-hairs. I just have a really bad feeling about all this. *Gulp*

I'm also worried about Eun-joong and just how far he'll go to prove that the law is always right. If there's anything I've learned from all my years of drama-watching, the law isn't always right. I just hope Eun-joong realizes that soon and joins Team Lookout. And I hope Soon-ae's daughter learns just what a psycho Shi-wan truly is again before it's too late for her.

Thanks for the recap!

My guess is that maybe DH was there probably running collecting evidence against that guy who kidnapped his daughter and tried to kill his wife and had seen the whole thing go down from another rooftop. He might be feeling guilty for letting yuna go with siwan that day

Agree. He is feeling guilty. He didn't expect that boy to be so psychotic to kill a little gal. Note that Shi Wan has disguised himself so well that all the ppl around him thought that he is a nice and kindhearted boy. Who would know that he is such a twisted psycho???

I believe now DH is in a dangerous situation. I think villain Yoon knows that there is smth suspicious about him. Maybe the rest of the Lookout team would have to save him soon.

I don't think he was on the rooftop, because if he followed ShiWan and Yuna to the rooftop I'd like to think he would have sensed something was wrong (why would they go there) and announced himself. Plus, if I remember correctly ShiWan tried to convince Yuna to go up on the ledge, so if Dohan saw that, that she was crying and didn't want to go up, there is no way he would not have done anything. My theory is that he got interrupted from following them. Maybe on a call? So it's possible he could have been close to the spot where she fell. Maybe he got to her first and called the emergency line, which is why she was still alive for a while longer. But definitely, he grieved and probably blamed himself for not having been able to save her as he is probably the last person who saw them. I don't believe he knew that Yuna was Suji's daughter or that ShiWan is a psychopath. We still don't know why he was there in the first place, but the show showing us that he was there is probably setting us up for something big. Hopefully a good twist after making us bang our heads!

Ok don't shoot me, i love this show but....So many horrible human beings in this show!!
truthfully, i don't like any of the men in this drama except our curly cutie. All of them liars,psycho's and maniacs, even that idiot prosecuter Eun Joong.
He is like Javert in Les Miserables, can't admit to himself that there is a difference between the law and justice. He keeps blindly following the law despite seeing how , time after time, it get's perverted by money and power. And in doing so he becomes a heartless drone to his friends and people needing, wanting and deserving justice. So from now on, i wil call him Javert. I know an eye for an eye is not right, but so far, apart from SJ, no one from the so called "fugitives" has technically broken laws (ok bit of a grey area here) , lied or used violence.Yet he keeps persisting that HIS way is the right way without any empathy for the victims. i would not piss on him if he was on fire, let alone consider him a friend or rightous (self rightous more like it).
Do Han, while i understand him , is like the count of Monte Cristo, hellbent on revenge, no matter the consequences for the people in his way. Yes his father was tortured and wrongfully imprisoned, however, let's face it, Yoon did not force him to drink or stab his kind,sweet wife did he? At least SJ went for the killer instead of someone innocent when she had her breakdown. Seems to me that just like Prosecuter Yoon and his childkilling son, Do Han and his wacky dad both share some psycho gene in their DNA.
Only redeeming quality he has is that he does seem to offer some sort of chance to some people to redeem themself if he thinks their crime is not too bad (KS's mom in retestifying - prosecuter OH in turning witness for the defence,...) a chance sadly, only curly's mom took. And at least he does know he became a monster in the process.
Priest guy, doesn't catholic church preach forgiveness and turning the other cheeck? he migth think he is innocent, but in participaing and enabling DH and hiding the thruth, he is also exacting revenge, he should take of that collar of his, it's a big lie.
Yoon's wife, knowing there is something wrong with both her son and husband also keeps covering, let's just hope she is the one coming to the rescue of our scooby gang and redeeming herself, although what a choice for a woman to make to condemn both your own son and his father to a life in prison. I still feel some pity for her.
That congressman, well i hate all politicians with a passion, so nothing new there :) :)
The only people i like as decent human beings are So Bo Mi , Curly cutie, SuJi's mom (bless her) , goodlooking young cop , the female team leader and SJ (althoug she has a way of shooting herself in the foot sometimes, i admire her tenacity and her readyness to admit when she herself crossed the line , it's honest and her love towards the 2 kids, her friend and her mom).
Although, if i'm fair, i should admit there is a...

a little bit of Suji and Do Han in me too. If someone would kill any member of my family and got away with it through corruption or outdated laws, let's just say, no sniffer dog in the world b-would be able to find them....at least not all parts.

I love Les Miserables--the musical! I actually wrote a paper on Javert (using the book, not the musical) in college, as he was such a fascinating character!

I can totally hear Eunjoong sing "Stars" from les Miserables, oh a duet with Dohan??

Eunjoong:
...
'There, out in the darkness
A fugitive running
Fallen from god
Fallen from grace'
...
'Those who follow the path of the righteous
Shall have their reward'
...
'And so it must be, for so it is written
On the doorway to paradise
That those who falter and those who fall
Must pay the price!'
...

Dohan:
...
'Lord, let me find him
That I may see him
Safe behind bars
I will never rest
Till then
This I swear
This I swear by the stars!'

Eunjoong:
...
'I am the Law and the Law is not mocked
I'll spit his pity right back in his face
There is nothing on earth that we share
It is either Dohan or Eunjoong!'
...
'And my thoughts fly apart
Can this man be believed?
Shall his sins be forgiven?
Shall his crimes be reprieved?

And must I now begin to doubt
Who never doubted all these years?
My heart is stone and still it trembles
The world I have known is lost in shadow
Is he from heaven or from hell?
And does he know
That granting me my life today
This man has killed me even so?'

Haha...Stars is one of my favorite songs from Les Mis and seems so appropriate for Eunjoong! Let's hope he gets a different fate than Javert though!
