Praise be to Subbers who subbed this episode so fast! I’m thinking that everyone is excited now that we are officially at the end of the line. I can’t believe there is only one more episode left. This episode had some twists that I truly did not see coming and our final villain standing continues to be just horrible.
What should we hit first? Lets do a little one. Chief didn’t die in the last episode? I’m pretty sure we saw her die. By having her hold on just to die (again) later–isn’t that a bit of a cheat? Don’t get me wrong, I loved the chance Dae Gu had to confront her again–even if she was unconscious. No, he will never get the answers, the closure he needs but we, as an audience, know that if she were have to lived, he wouldn’t have just tossed her away. I’d like to think that eventually he would have if not forgiven, then understood her actions.
And for me? That tear at the very end, while manipulative to the viewer–totally worked for me. It’s the sign that we needed to show that she truly did care for Dae Gu, and was a more proper send-off for what was an incredibly interesting and complex character.
See that they are still in the honeymoon phase with that camera angle. Too bad they didn’t start using it earlier.
As we get to the end, I’m soaking in every scene with Dae Gu and Soo Sun. His asking her not to betray him? So sad. And yet at the same time, as he’s able to say the words out loud, it is, at the same time, hopeful. You’d better treat him right Soo Sun!
I understand why Detective Seo had to make the grand gesture to resign, but I hope that in the end he gets reinstated.
