JoAnne: He looks better shirtless in pajama bottoms, as I recall. I do love a man in pajama bottoms, slung low across the hips. Yes.
JoAnne: Oh yes, there was laughing. You kind of have to admire this girl's commitment to a cause, though.
JoAnne: What fascinates me, kind of like looking at a bug under a microscope, is parsing out the ways MinJung actually buys her own stories.
But Min-jung really has BaDIL by her non-existent balls! As we know, she recorded her conversation with Shady Servant about the hair pin.
JoAnne: True, true. She has BaDIL by the short hairs, that seems certain.
It's our new power couple ! They know where Bi-dan got off and they do a little "I will go - no I will go" game, until Jae-hwa finally agrees to go see Bori to tell her the news and Moony goes ahead to find the girl. Jae-hwa is smart enough to wonder why Moony is so engaged.
JoAnne: I'm glad that he found out Bori didn't actually give birth to Bi Dan before he finds out that Moony is the dad, because I didn't want to watch that particular jealousy/misunderstanding arc.
JoAnne: You know how he thinks Bori is awesome and Big Kang thinks Jung Ran is awesome? Much as I love Big Kang, I'd rather have Jae Hwa's brand of silly than Big Kang's. How about you?
Yeah... Big Kang is cute but quite like an imbecile.
JoAnne: I just spent time trying to remember when and where it rained and when she has had headaches and then I realized that I don't really care.
JoAnne: Because it wouldn't add to the creep factor at all for him to be wet and semi-nude and imagining young Eun Bi.
JoAnne: Yes, she bought them at the airport. Why she was able to with a credit card she couldn't show ID for, I do not know. How Bori even has a credit card, I do not know. Oh! Did Min Jung take out a credit card in Bori's name?
JoAnne: Sure until Mom gets to the Bad Dad leg of The Tour to Tell All Truths.
JoAnne: I do love how they rub their happiness in Min Jung's face but come ON Bong2 why didn't you tell him Bori was Eun Bi?
kakashi: He wants this to be gooooooood. I.e. invite everybody over and then, the door opens, and in comes ... Bori!
Bi-dan is alone, cold, dirty, sad, hungry etc. somewhere in the countryside, when some guards find her. But she pretends she cannot speak and cannot hear (awww, child...) and also quickly removes Jae-hwa's phone-number bracelet from her foot. They give her something to drink and feed her and then hand her over to the police.
JoAnne: Poor little silly baby girl.
JoAnne: *sniff* what?
JoAnne: Just had this really disturbing image of a Bori torso hopping down the aisle. She's all pop-eyed and happy with her hair flying..
JoAnne: Hey it could be here in the US - he wouldn't find out until next season. (Although with 50 episodes, we are well into season 2 if not season 3.)
JoAnne: They're detectives. Only patrol cops wear uniforms - same here. The rest of the time uniforms are for official events. Well, I think the cops assigned to the front desk and stuff wear uniforms all the time too but generally they are patrol cops they're just assigned a different duty.
Veggie is done lying - she will not implicate Bori in this. But before she makes a statement, she gets Dumb Mom to come to the police station and tells her about a second daughter. She begs her to accept her as her daughter-in-law. Of course, Dumb Mom thinks she means a wife for Jae-hwa and leaves in anger, but Veggie only wanted to place this request with Dumb Mom, so that she would remember later, when Min-jung's cover is shredded apart.
JoAnne: Or, you know, you could have told her now.
JoAnne: Dumb as dirt, that one.
JoAnne: I don't know if they actually have any GED programs that take students as boarders, LOL.
JoAnne: Stupid ass Dumb Mom and Ga Eul.
And then, Bi-dan is home!!!
JoAnne: Please let me wake up tomorrow and have it be next week so I can watch this again.
The RestDumb Mom and equally if not Dumber Daughter keep annoying me greatly, but when they go drink beer and Ga-eul sprays hers all over a group of gangsters, things get quite entertaining. Dumb Mom has many faults, but being a chicken is not one of them! And then, Big Kang arrives and FIGHTS, all awesome and stuff (not quite Joongi style, but still good!). The result: two new fans. Stand in line, you!
JoAnne: He picked a berry up off the pavement and ate it. (Actually, I was hoping it would be Dumb Mom who displayed some kind of unexpected and intense fighting skills, LOL)
JoAnne: I bet you anything not.
kakashi: Oh come ON!
CommentsIn this race towards the end, Min-jung will use every bit of dirt she has on anybody to save her neck. Ultimately, as JoAnne has already pointed out, it seems clear that BaDIL will sacrifice herself for her daughter - or rather, she will admit to her crimes so that Bori can stay at her rightful place in peace. But that will take a few more episodes, of course.
JoAnne: But I still don't think we'll like her.
Veggie might have to go to prison, and I guess she deserves that. But only if Min-jung is at the same prison, life-long, and in solitary confinement. I keep wondering how they will punish her in the end. If. Because her life, as we have said, is in itself already a huge punishment.
JoAnne: Didn't Jae Hwa say she needed to go to jail? Please let it be so. But for Veggie at least I'll feel a little bit bad because her motives were all mixed up.
I liked that Jae-hwa started to recognize Bori as Eun-bi herself (though it was unintentionally pedo-style) because this show has really made this point an important one: who recognizes her as her former self and who doesn't? He is almost there. And there's only a little more thinking he needs to do to figure out who Moony could be. It couldn't be more obvious, in fact.
JoAnne: Right but it wouldn't occur to anyone in real life either, I bet. Well he wouldn't have that kind of access though... oh I don't know.
10 more episodes to go and am already sad it's soon going to be over.
JoAnne: We'll have Bad Guys to see us through.
