There’s a lot of ground to cover in this final episode, and while I can say that all the loose ends are tied up, the bows aren’t as neat as they could have been. But justice is a messy thing in the end, and sometimes punishment comes from a direction nobody expected. But there’s always hope that, if you live honestly and without wearing a mask, you can find your happiness.
Our heroine’s in danger, and everyone scrambles to simultaneously cover up the scandal and prevent the fallout. But secrets this big are hard to keep, especially when so many people are in on it, and time is running out. Everyone’s masks are starting to crumble, and it won’t be long before the full truth is discovered.
We know that Ji-sook will do anything to protect those she loves, and she sets out to beat her adversaries at their own game. But it’s not easy to out-fox the fox, and her willingness to put herself in danger to win this dangerous game could land her in the hottest water yet.
EPISODE 18 RECAP: “Trap”
These two lovesick dorks, I can’t even. But Min-woo and Ji-sook haven’t much time to enjoy their newfound romance, as they both have business to take care of, namely clearing Ji-sook’s name and making sure Seok-hoon gets punished. But their adversaries aren’t finished with their plans yet, and things will undoubtedly get worse before they get better.
Ji-sook has thwarted Seok-hoon again, which means he’s forced to come up with another plan, and we all know how well his on-the-fly plans tend to work out. Especially when just about everyone is onto him, and Ji-sook is no longer scared of him. How far is Seok-hoon willing to go for his revenge, and will Ji-sook and Min-woo find each other again in time?
Min-woo has clued in to one big secret, which means he’s got a lot to work through… but Seok-hoon puts the next phase of his revenge plan into motion, and Ji-sook will have to find a way to get Min-woo on her side — it’s literally a matter of life and death.
Seok-hoon is losing control over Ji-sook — and to make matters worse, his wife is going rogue, and she’s got the ability to hurt them more in one day than Seok-hoon has done in months. It’s going to take a lot of work on Seok-hoon’s part to get her back under control, but it won’t be easy — I’m sure that his victims losing their fear is the worst thing a villain can imagine.
The web of lies is unraveling at a shocking rate of speed, and nobody will left untouched by the horrors of the truth. But even in the middle of chaos, Min-woo and Ji-sook are falling in love, and a declaration will be made that, should it be accepted, could change the whole game in their favor.
EPISODE 13: “A Proposal and a Divorce”
Seok-hoon’s carefully constructed lies are being torn down left and right, making him feel more uncertain and more likely to lash out in desperation. Luckily, love is blooming despite Ji-sook’s attempts to keep her distance from Min-woo. And once the two of them become true partners in every sense of the word, there’s going to be nothing and nobody capable of tearing them apart.
