How did I know Chief would be the one to shoot Muyeom? Dude really has no type of shame or formal police training. Also.....what's that finger twitch thing the Chief did? Isn't that significant? Am I mixing up dramas again?
Sun Joo? Wait, who is Sun Joo? Oh okay, Chief's daughter. So let me try and rationalize this. Did Gap Dong send Ha Ilsik to hurt Sun Joo or did he just find her while walking? Is Ha Ilsik even involved in what happened to Sun Joo other than being there at the scene when Chief showed up?
"Please don't do things I can't cover." What kind of lawyer says that unless he knows something about his client....? What about a Matilda? Matilda is a character in Jiwool's webtoon, So is Matilda equal to Maria? Or perhaps equal to herself? This Matilda sort of came out of the sky, so I'm wondering what Jiwoo's suspicions are as well. Also, the fangirl is still strong in Yoo Rachel I see. She can't let go of the man she wants...lol. Between her crying and serious lack of reality when it comes to Muyeom, she cracks me up.
It seems I was wrong about Red Frames Ahjussi being Gap Dong. Well then is it the guy who's a little bit slower than the rest of the inpatients? I always suspected him since the very beginning, not sure why.
An aside: It really shows how much I watch crime television and did research when something I mentioned last week, is mentioned in the show this week. Goals.
Muyeom gets intense headaches.....? That's not particularly "normal". Or was he playing it up? I honestly missed this part. I looked away for two seconds and didn't feel like going back. AH! So he's always known who Maria truly was, I had a feeling because he was always a bit too close to her. I still wasn't too certain until this episode, though.
Okay, so if Taeoh is really duplicating Gap Dong, then Gap Dong didn't commit all of the murders, he had others do it for him with a pending threat if they didn't. So if Ha Ilsik didn't commit a murder, Muyeom would have been in danger. Correct?
