Seong-eun admits the charges and explains she hates her husband, pushing him down once is not enough she couldn’t resolve her anger. After the interrogation Eun-hyuk and Yoo-jung shares a short conversation about Bong-hee.

Eun-hyuk practises some questions with Seong-eun’s son as the prosecutor may ask him these. Eun-hyuk asks him when did his father started abusing his mother, he replies his father was always violent towards her. He explains he really pities his mother which causes Eun-hyuk to interfere his speech, it’s apparent that Eun-hyuk is annoyed by his words but something is holding him back to confront him. Ji-wook happens to overhear everything, he asks him whether his father only abused his mother or did he abuse him too. Eun-hyuk calls Ji-wook’s name to prevent him from speaking however Ji-wook does not listen and even helps himself to a seat. Ji-wook starts interrogating him however Eun-hyuk quickly interrupts to put a stop to this interrogation.

Ji-wook confronts Eun-hyuk, he asks if he’s hiding something. Eun-hyuk becomes irritated and defensive. Ji-wook repeats his words and asks again. Eun-hyuk explains Seong-eun went out to get grocery but once she came back her husband was already on the floor. Seong-run deducted the person who could have done this was her only son, therefore she tries to take the blame by stabbing her husband’s body another time. Eun-hyuk tells Ji-wook he’s obligated to remain confidentiality and cannot use it as service. Ji-wook speaks back and tells Eun-hyuk lawyers cannot conceal the truth while serving clients. Eun-hyuk states the importance is helping his client and her wishes. Ji-wook snorts; the importance is capturing the guilty. Ji-wook raises his voice, it does not make sense for the Seong-run to take the blame. Eun-hyuk speaks back he will give his client what she wants no matter what. Ji-wook questions Eun-hyuk whether he can take the consequence.
