Thank you, gangster past. Crazy laughs in his face and calls him stupid for going to such lengths for a woman in love with someone else, but Seung-pyo just wants to know where Min-young is. The fight heads indoors and Mr. He sees her shoved behind the grate… and turns his back on the perp—and his knife. Byung-hoon arrives at the theater, staggering from the ordeal of forcing himself to drive, and Moo-jin joins him. Not soon enough, though, because Seung-pyo gets a knife to the side.
Seung-pyo fights back and knocks Crazy aside, then collapses clutching his abdomen. When Byung-hoon and Moo-jin rush in, he gasps out where Min-young is hidden, and they find the opening to the crawlspace. The timer starts counting down—ten minutes till boom. Poor Seung-pyo, bleeding on the floor watching, while his heart gets trampled for good measure. Moo-jin manages to disable the bomb with a few minutes to spare, and Min-young rushes to check on Seung-pyo.
Soon the police arrive and Seung-pyo is loaded into the ambulance. The surgery is successful, and now they can relax. When Byung-hoon returns to the theater after his trip to the police station, he finds Min-young asleep at the table, having waited up. Arang tells her how worried Byung-hoon was when she went missing, and encourages her to not give up on her feelings.
They adorably clear out in a flash when Min-young drops by. Aw, and then his face falls a bit when she asks if Byung-hoon has been by, disappointed. So Byung-hoon manages to say an apology, with a straight face and everything, but he does it quickly and with his face averted. And now Byung-hoon declares it time to head into the final stage of their mission.
She tells him she heard his conversation with Yi-seol during her kidnapping, when Yi-seol had urged him to come clean with his feelings.
Byung-hoon sets the stage with beautiful scenery and watches grumpily from his van while Seung-pyo and Min-young take a walk. But thankfully, you found me first. After you arrived, every day was enjoyable. And not as someone else plans?
He gets up and says to the camera that maybe Byung-hoon needs to lose her in order to come to his senses… and then the camera screen blacks out and Min-young screams. Byung-hoon panics and runs out of the van to charge in… …while the two conspirators smile at each other, totally having planned this. Oh cute, they out-Cyranoed Cyrano. Byung-hoon finds them standing there perfectly fine, and Seung-pyo says that he was all set to go along with the plan if Min-young seemed at all partial to him.
He tells Byung-hoon to be honest with her directly, and not hide behind his mission. And if he really wishes for her happiness, he ought to consider what she wants. Then he makes his cool not-a-hero exit. So Byung-hoon leans in to whisper into her ear, and whatever he says makes her glow and throw her arms around him. Aww, and then the goons chime in with their two cents, by skulking close with their huge cloud of balloons, which they release behind the hugging couple. Min-young prods him to keep it going, arguing that they do good work.
She can be his assistant, he says, and then bans her from his office for the next month while he works. Pouting, Min-young heads out with the files to be trashed and pauses to read the bulletin board with all their mission plans on it.
He makes her promise not to disappear again, and hands her theater tickets… and her pink bike helmet. The show is, appropriately, Cyrano de Bergerac.
Both Seung-pyo and Yi-seol arrive on opening day, as do Moo-jin and Hye-ri. The two goons have roles in the play, which is sweet given how much they enjoyed acting during the missions. And at Cyrano Agency, I made my universe, my romance.
