Byung-hoon orders her to repeat the process tomorrow, which, ha. Arang even tells Moo-jin to half-ass the job. Working hard has become a habit. On to the ex, who works in marketing and seems like a bit of a prat. That, and he plays baseball with a team of college buddies and loooves his car.
Byung-hoon gets to the baseball field first and watches the team warming up, and gets passive-aggressive about throwing the ball back at the cheating ex. She gives up and urges Seung-pyo not to kick up a fuss, so Seung-pyo shoots them a glare and joins her in the car. Seung-pyo checks with her, asking if she really wants to leave things like this, and she admits that she has a hard time talking back to this guy.
Just then, Douchey does the supremely douchey think of rapping on the car hood ugh, hate people who do this and tells her she forgot to give them lunch: So while her assface ex is crying over his car literally , she musters her courage and faces him.
Was he so embarrassed to be dumped that he had to go around spreading lies and treating her like a stalker? Seung-pyo gives her a thumbs-up, and she thanks him for his help. Seung-pyo pauses to tell the Douchenozzle to bill him for the car repairs, then drives off like a cool mofo. Byung-hoon mutters to himself that Seung-pyo had to go off-script and be extra-cool for no reason. Min-young suggests a little baseball break for themselves, which takes them to the batting cages. As she bats, Seung-pyo asks how she can remain so positive about romance given her experience, and she says that there were more good memories than bad.
After all, those moments of being in love with somebody are your happiest. He flings away the bat entirely on one swing. Byung-hoon returns to the agency, where the two boys have a ready excuse for their failure to show up at the mission locale: I almost wish they could end up together, because they really are cute and well-matched.
He asks her for a favor, and she readily agrees to do some doll-eye-gluing for him one of his many part-time jobs. Moo-jin sets a timer to the fuse box, then heads out for a date with Hye-ri. Power outage in 3… 2… 1… Yi-seol and Seung-pyo sit down for an awkward chat. She tells him that Byung-hoon and Do-il were quite close—so much so that Seung-pyo might not understand. Which is quite similar to what Seung-pyo said to Byung-hoon about his own relationship with his brother.
She does have a lingering question, though, which nobody has explained clearly: What is going on with Cyrano that prevents its reopening as a theater? She was driving the car. Min-young freaks out at the power outage and sticks close to Byung-hoon, not wanting to be left in the dark alone. He shuffles away and wonders where the boys are. Outside, of course, prepared to wait it out all night. Inside, Min-young nods off while Byung-hoon pulls out an old photo of his high school trio.
Then Min-young drops her head on his shoulder, asleep. Go next door to the agency right now. So he does, and his jaw clenches to see the cozy scene of Min-young sleeping on the couch, with Byung-hoon also asleep on the other end. Thus in the morning, Seung-pyo declares his new decision: Min-young wakes up in the empty theater, where the possibly unhinged Hawaiian shirt man reappears. But Hawaiian Shirt sneers that their so-called principles never stopped them before.
Hm, is this a revenge thing then? A mission gone awry? Byung-hoon and Min-young try to reason with her gently, saying that they understand how she might feel upset but the mission turned out well and her chef boyfriend Dal-in is a decent guy.
Byung-hoon adds that they got her revenge on her bastard ex, too. Hawaiian Shirt sneaks a device onto a shelf, then follows her out. Apparently somebody sent Mi-jin an email to tip her off, which is certainly strange. Then the loan shark goons swing by for another trip up to the rooftop. Byung-hoon protests that he made the payment this month. The goons tell Byung-hoon he no longer has to make payments—all he has to do is move out of the theater within ten days.
Orders from the hyungnim. Min-young rifles through paperwork trying to locate receipts to prove payment… and finds a business card for Douchey Ex. She wonders why would Byung-hoon have this. Not incriminating by themselves, but now this is pinging her suspicion-o-meter and she delves deeper, looking for casefiles.
And there it is: Byung-hoon wonders why Seung-pyo changed his mind so suddenly, and guesses it was because of Min-young. He drops the case. Seung-pyo calls it an excuse, saying that he never had any intention of working on the case properly from the start: To my brother, and to Min-young too. Byung-hoon returns to the office to find Min-young clicking through the computer files.
Instead, he confirms it. Hurt, she asks if he did it to get rid of her, knowing how she felt about him. Did you think you mean something to me? And later, Byung-hoon gets an ominous text message with an attached photo, of a bound and gagged Min-young.
