The identity of the woman from last week was revealed to be the Queen and the crown prince turned out to be Chief Gwi.
In the past, the queen scolded Wol-joo for being with the crown prince and told her to stay away. In the present, the queen and the Chief Gwi went for coffee. He asked how she recognized him? She said a mother will always know her child. She said after waking up from a coma, bits and pieces of her old life started coming back. In the past when the crown prince died, he appeared in front of Yeomradaewang for his sentencing. He begged to be sent to wol-joo but she refused and made him an offer. She said since he killed Won-Hyung before killing himself, therefore saving a lot of people that Won-Hyung would have killed, she’s willing to send him to the afterlife police agency. She promised to send him to Wol-joo if he does his job right. That was how he ended up working with wol-joo.
Kang-bae returned to the bar alone and Wol-joo asked of Chief Gwi. He told her he went off with a friend. This surprised her and she said he has no friends. Chief Gwi came into the bar and the trio talked about the man Wol-joo trusted but betrayed her. This made Chief Gwi fluster and accidentally dropped the jade ring he was gonna give Wol-joo five hundred years ago. Kang-bae picked it up and Wol-joo teased him about it. Saying no one gives jade rings anymore as it’s outdated. Samsin told Wol-joo that Yeo-rin is the reincarnation of cinnabar.
Wol-joo went to Kang-joo’s workplace and tried to get Yeo-rin to admit to her feelings for Kang-bae but failed. While muttering to herself, Chief Gwi heard and figured out Yeo-rin is cinnabar. They both tried to get the two of them together but kept failing. At the bar,while wol-joo and Chief Gwi tried to help Kang-bae win over Yeo-rin, the queen who now goes by the name Shin ji- hye came in and Wol-joo immediately tried to kick her out but she refused to leave. Chief Gwi and Chief Yeom came in and were surprised to see her there. Chief Gwi quickly led Shin ji-hye out of the bar saying she’s someone he met when he wanted to buy an outfit and she owned a clothing store.
Chief Gwi took her to a bar and explained Wol-joo’s punishment to her. But she seem like she wants to resolve a misunderstanding that happened five hundred years ago so Wol-joo and the crown prince can be together. He tells her she can’t tell Wol-joo as she doesn’t now that he’s the Crown prince. Kang-bae helped Yeo-rin in front of an old crush who keeps calling her creepy. He pretended to be her boyfriend and saved her from embarrassment. Kang-bae accidentally let it slip to Chief Gwi and Chief Yeom that Wol-joo signed a contract and she’s going to hell even if she finishes the hundred thousand grudges. It was revealed that Won-hyung took over his father’s body in the last episode and he has been looking for a way to sabotage the grudges so Wol-joo and the crown prince can end up in hell with him.
Chief Gwi found Wol-joo and got angry that she signed the contract. He went to Samsin’s house to try and get the contract back but she said she doesn’t have it. Yeomradaewang does. He asked why she let her sign the contract? samsin told him she couldn’t stop her. She said she knows more than anybody the type of person Wol-joo is. Yeo-rin and Kang-bae finally admitted their feelings to each other and officially became a couple. Won-hyung posing as Chief Yeom went to see Shin ji-hye and told her to trick Wol-joo into going into her dream so she can help her understand. While Wol-joo was in Ji-hye’s dream, she had to relive some moments in her past. before she could get any answers, Chief Gwi dragged her out.
Chief Gwi went to Yeomradaewang and told her he will take Wol-joo’s place in hell instead. He goes back to the bar and met Chief Yeom there as well. He told them that the contract has been canceled. he told them he had some dirt on some higher ups, which he traded for the contract. Won-hyung, not happy with this went to Shin ji-hye who figured that something is not right, and killed her.
Wol-joo went to the supermarket and saw Kang-bae and Yeo-rin been all lovey dovey and she heard the words Kang-bae was telling Yeo-rin. It’s the exact same words the crown prince used to say to her. Word for word. She asked him who told him and he said Guibanjang told him. Realizing who he is, wol-joo started running to the bar and the words Guibanjang always said now started making sense like pieces of a puzzle. When she got to the bar, with tears in her eyes, she asked him who he is.
That’s where this episode ended. Even tho there was no grudges to settle this episode and with two grudges left, am glad they took this episode to try and solve the grudges of our heroes. With only two episodes left, am already missing the trio. UNTIL NEXT WEEK……
