OHMYGAHD THIS EPISODE ENDED IN SUCH A CLIFFHANGER.

It's like the writers were just biding their time to pull this fast one on us, making us gnaw at our fingernails in anxiety until the next episode airs. 



Literally me as I watched the car crash scene at the end. 


What's at least a little comforting is that Sung Il is less of a duffer than in the previous episodes. He seems to be getting the hang of being a dutiful, upstanding civil servant as well as a conniving, duplicitous conman. It almost seemed as if he became an artful mountebank overnight which was especially surprising to see because Sung Il is so....painfully ordinary. Either Sung Il always possessed what it takes to be a conman or Jung Do is a good teacher. I like to think that it's the former. 



Ooohhh girl, that dress with that hair with those shoes? How about 'No.' 



Bitch please, what do you know about fashion. 


In any case, Sung Il and his circle of swindlers were going about their business just fine up until Sung Hee decided to be a meddlesome snip and poke her nose in virtually everywhere. *Siggghhhhh* I will be honest here...I found her really annoying in this episode. She claimed that she was worried about the welfare of Sung Il but I call complete bullshit on it. Her lingering feelings toward Jung Do were getting in the way, and she butted in where she shouldn't, stubborn and willful just to get her dose of vendetta. She wanted to put Jung Do "in his place" just as he had done to her when he dumped her all those eons ago. 



This is not a face that you can like....


Well, sorry to break it to ya, hon, but this is bigger than your feewings. Okay. I might be being a bit too harsh. Sung Il's partly at fault, too, for letting himself be so easily traceable and followed by his co-worker like that. Soon, especially once she realizes that you can't uphold the law without breaking some along the way, Sung Hee will be joining hands with Sung Il and Jung Do anyway. 


We got to see a more unaffected side of Jung Do in this episode, unlike the steel-hearted, smooth-talking, thick-faced conman that we got used to seeing in the previous episodes. Like I've mentioned in my earlier review, Jung Do's obviously got a purpose for doing the things he does, a purpose that is probably not for the 'greater good' but rather, self-serving. He's making up for some past wrong, a wrong that has most likely to do with his father being in jail. A troubled man with baggage, that's what Jung Do is, and he is definitely becoming a more interesting character with each passing episode.
