It’s the final episode of our show within the show, and suddenly everything about the broadcast has changed. Our team has found a new motivator to finish what they started, and it’s now up to them to find a way to expose crimes more heinous than any of them could have imagined when they started on this project only ten days ago. But will the truth triumph when falsehood has so much power on its side?
The true purpose behind a show that began as a search for a kidnapped boy has emerged. The kidnapper has used the show to reveal a threat to the public’s health while exposing a corrupt company. The power of the media, coupled with a public that is increasingly connected, has been the backdrop of this story of a modern day David and Goliath. The question now is, can anything good come of a show that has been forced to cooperate with the kidnapper, no matter how good the reason?
The man who has nothing to lose comes face to face with the man who will do anything to protect what he has. Only one man can triumph in the end. Not knowing who they can trust, the small circle formed by the production and police teams comes together to finish what they started—a show meant to reunite a young boy with his mother.
There’s a whole lot of tragedy behind the kidnapper’s motive, whose identity reveal hurts those who are closest to him. The revelation results in focused efforts to find the culprit, forcing Hye-in and Seung-in to race to recover Hyun-woo. As more facts emerge regarding the motive for the kidnapping, SG Group flexes its muscles to protect the company’s interests. Seung-in finds himself separated from his colleagues, leaving them vulnerable against the forces of SG Group.
The pieces are starting to fit together as the mastermind’s motivations begin to emerge. As the culprit loses control of his plan, the future of the Wanted broadcast also becomes uncertain, and the characters become increasingly concerned about how all this will turn out. But some shocking revelations are in store for our main characters that will change everything.
Help comes from an unexpected source as both teams are faced with the most important mission yet. Unfortunately, the network’s new ownership puts the mission at risk. Seung-in gets closer to finding out who the kidnapper is trying to expose, forcing him to be careful about who he confides in. Hye-in suffers a betrayal from someone near her, putting her and those she is with in danger.
Nothing is as it appears in any of the cases that have come to light. Everyone is having to dig deeper in the investigation to try to gain the upper hand over the kidnapper, who has shown himself to be a master manipulator. But now, it’s time for the tables to be turned. The teams are complicated by members who have their own agendas, forcing those most committed to saving Hyun-woo to take matters into their own hands.
The chickens are coming home to roost as public backlash rises and a new threat materializes, one that no one could have anticipated. As enemies emerge from every direction, the road ahead becomes even darker, and everyone feels more pressure than ever to end this charade before it causes more damage than it already has.
Hye-in proves just how resilient she really is in her quest to bring Hyun-woo home safely. As public criticism builds, a new threat makes the task of saving Hyun-woo even more challenging. Both teams have to work hard to figure out how all the missions are connected, and find themselves looking to the past to find that link.
Both the police and the Wanted team dig deeper into Na Soo-hyun’s history and his connection to the increasing number of dead bodies that surround this case. Every time they seem close to a breakthrough, more information comes to light that changes everything once again. With tempers wearing thin and public opinion rising in an angry tide against them, the team grows desperate, and innocence becomes a luxury they can no longer afford.
