The devil incarnate
Grieving over his loss, Sa Do Chan rushes to where Geum Tae Woong is. The villain, who is equally enraged, coaxes Do Chan to fume even more, leading the latter to push him to the banister, where he hit his head and falls down with a bleeding head.
Tae Woong, who staged the accident, rests comfortably in a hospital as Do Chan is chased by the police. He takes the opportunity to manipulate the murders he caused by feeding the media about a failed con, instigated by Viktor Jang and Sa Ma Chun along with the attempted murder he pins on Do Chan.
One last fight
News spread like wild fire about Do Chan’s impersonation of a prosecutor. DP Jin orders a thorough check on Do Chan’s involvement as a prosecutor as well as the possibility of conspiring with Chief Yang and Ha Ra.

But he promises her that he will fix everything before it gets out of control.

Father and son
Ha Ra meets Sa Ma Chun’s detective friend, who reveals the reason why Do Chan’s father refused to present himself to his son. Apparently, the revenge he was preparing for Tae Woong involving the terracotta warriors connected Jung Do Young and Mr. Bong, leading to Do Chan’s failure to take the bar exam, so Ma Chun blames himself for what happened to his son. Ha Ra promises to catch the fiend by all means. Later at night, Ha Ra reminisces all those times that she was by Do Chan’s side.
The crime that started it all
Tae Woong looks back on the day he killed his wife when the latter learned of his intentional con to use her for his ambition. He summons Sa Ma Chun to help with his ordeal, but Ma Chun refuses to clean the mess that he made.

Do Chan sneaks a moment to advise Ha Ra of his plan to catch Tae Woong just as Jun Soo tells Chief Yang that the only way to catch Tae Woong is if Do Chan will die.
Luring the bear

Secretary Kim heads to where the hacker’s signal is, while Tae Woong goes to Director Choi’s villa to give an important ledger not knowing that it was set up by Do Chan.

Do Chan throws punches to the hopelessly wicked villain, and almost strangled him to death, but Ha Ra and her team arrive to stop it.

Sung Doo learns from Tae Woong about silencing Secretary Kim, who was in coma after the beating he got from his cell mates. As what Do Chan predicts, Tae Woong is pressured to encash the bonds, so he asked In Tae for options. He suggests an expensive diamond priced at 150 million dollars to which the villain agrees.
Tae Woong has it checked by professionals to prove the gem’s authenticity, not knowing that Do Chan and his team pre-arranged a switch using a special case to give the replica.
The fake gem
Tae Woong screams in rage upon knowing the ploy Do Chan threw at him. The men commissioned by Secretary Kim at Incheon are finally apprehended, leaving a decisive conclusion of Tae Woong’s involvement to Sa Ma Chun’s murder.
Do Chan drops a bomb targeting Tae Woong, who realizes that the gem he bought for 200 million is fake. Ha Ra arrests Tae Woong for questioning, but his men in the prosecutors’ office make a move by forcing Do Chan to extract blood for comparison with Jun Soo’s blood that is on file.
The final switch
Prosecutor Gil brings in the result of the blood test shaming their unnecessary move, because Do Chan and Jun Soo switch again without their knowing.
Sung Doo visits Tae Woong, who is awaiting his trial for the murder cases he instigated. He confesses belatedly about their blood ties, and pleads to have Sung Doo cover for him so that he can be a good father with his second chance.
On the day of the trial, Tae Woong’s lawyers move to prove his innocence by calling in Sung Doo to the witness stand, to support Tae Woong’s bid that Secretary Kim instigated the murders.

In the end, Tae Woong realizes his pathetic life of having no one to trust, and no one to care for him.
