푸른 바다의 전설: 제17회
Shim Cheong manages to erase the Murderer’s memories. The gang leaves the mansion before Chi-hyun gets back. When he does, his father lies about Joon-jae being in the house. Shi-ah’s sister-in-law takes Joon-jae’s mother along to her meeting. There, she once again crosses paths with Kang Seo-hee, who reveals that she and Chi-hyun will be inheriting everything. She later meets up with the Murderer, and with his memories wiped clean, he becomes her obedient puppet. She brings him home in secret. She then brings her husband’s medication and sees him throw it into the trash bin after he thought she left. Shim Cheong treats Joon-jae coldly. She then gathers her two friends to say goodbye. When Joon-jae confronts Chi-hyun about their father’s condition and he let’s it slip that Shim Cheong met her the other night, he finds out why she’s been acting that way. Nam-doo gradually puts two on two together, heads to an aquarium and asks what the fetching price for a mermaid is. Joon-jae’s father is poisoned to death.
At first I was hating Daddy too. I thought, what a stubborn guy. But perhaps we should just give him the benefit of wanting to know the truth for himself. Still, I think it’s stupid. If you literally lack the vision to do so, it’s going to be hard to do that. And he easily got found out! Now he thinks he is outwitting Stepmom, who is actually always one step ahead of him. Now he’s dead. It’s cool, that’s for plot development and some poetic justice on the side. Now the battle for the inheritance begins. I just hate how Mentor is pushing his own agendas as late as now, although I think one more betrayal would be just as interesting. Besides, they still have three episodes left. Ouch, Third Party Girl got rejected really hard. But I think she knew that was coming all along. It’s just that denial is not your friend, you know. It’s hard to move on from a strong obsession like that. And Hacker Kid continues to be her babysitter. Poor kid. I think those two will end up together in the end.
