Wow, ten weeks of a roller coaster ride with our resident baddie Park Sa is just one of a kind experience. I still remember the feeling I had the first time he strolled through Jo Oh’s mansion-ready for a coup, calm as you please while the world fought on around him. ‘Now that’s BADASS!’ is what I thought, and the subsequent episodes took things to levels that I didn’t even think of! And now it’s time to bid it goodbye!
I’m going into this episode not knowing what to expect since I didn’t get the chance to check out the preview. Now I just hope the ending leaves me satisfied, if not happy! But seriously, after 19 episodes of having such close brushes with death and danger, doesn’t our hero deserve a happy ending?
Note after watching: SERIOUSLY WRITER?! Or as Soo said it, “ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!”
I ride into every episode thinking, Can this get any better? and every time, the show blows me over. Things take worse than a bad turn for our hero in this episode. I said it once before, if Hong Ki betrayed Park Sa, it would be too much for Park Sa to take and his world will literally crash down on him, like dominoes. Now that it’s happening, there’s no way to stop it. And when he cries, your heart bleeds right there with his!

I finally got to the episode! Yesss! Unfortunately, my recovery has gone back to square one thanks to a out of town visit today where I had to act as the designated driver. Consequently, I am back to drinking loads of tea! The weekend does look like a good prospect for resting but there’s a traditional wedding coming up starting Friday and I might find myself having to go there too. I’ll just keep my fingers crossed and hope to get whatever rest I can! Besides, flu always completes its course and I’m so hoping mine has decided it’s time is done and over! Once again, apologies for the delay, but hopefully, the post will make up for it, especially the lengthy comments section! I went a little crazy doing that! 😉 😛
This was one hell of an episode and I have literally loved every minute of it! The face off has come so much sooner than I expected and it gives us a wonderful peek into Park Sa’s life that goes beyond the surface and explores the relationship between him, Jin Suk and Safari ever more. The ending scene had me wanting to cry-there’s so much going on behind the simple chat between him and Safari and it is just heartbreaking to see the badass Park Sa helpless and confronting the end! *Heartbreak*
I love the way this show is taking the slow route in revealing everything to us bit by bit. It’s a great way to keep us sated, and yet curious for more! Today we get more of Park Sa’s past and the plot moves a step forward in upping the game throughout the episode. The real moment where stakes fly, and totally unexpectedly is at the very end when two enemies who shouldn’t really be enemies-Park Sa and Hyung Min, almost come face to face! Enough suspense? Move onto the recap and sate your curiosity!
