Young-hee requests Ji-wook to not be so harsh on him. Young-hee asks whether being a lawyer doesn’t suit him which Ji-wook replies he feels constantly frustrated because he can’t do anything about criminals like Hyun-soo. Young-hee replies he didn’t like it when Ji-wook worked as a prosecutor which Ji-wook asks why and Young-hee explains he worked extremely hard and couldn’t even get enough sleep. Young-hee is scared Ji-wook might become like his dad because he works with criminals. Ji-wook laughs it off and says he might not even get hired anyways.

Ji-wook arrives at the hospital and Yoo-jung updates him immediately, she tells Ji-wook that Hyun-soo’s results are normal according to his brainwave and MRI scan. There’s also no physical damage found on his brain. Ji-wook tells Yoo-jung that Hyun-soo cannot recognise him which means there can be 2 possibilities behind this: Hyun-soo is indeed suffering from dissociative amnesia or he’s pretending so he can get away with it. Yoo-jung agrees but explains they have to wait no matter what. She also states dissociative amnesia could have been caused from trauma or guilt however Ji-wook disagrees because Hyun-soo is not that type of person who will feel guilty. Ji-wook requests Yoo-jung to grant him a visit because he wants to see Hyun-soo.

Hyun-soo begs Ji-wook to tell him however Ji-wook replies he’s unsure whether he has the answer for him. Hyun-soo starts punching the cupboard but apologises right away, he tells Ji-wook he feels frustrated because no one is telling him anything.

Bong-hee is at the office to collect Jae-hong so he can go back to his auntie’s place however Jae-hong refuses because he still gets nightmare and wants to stay here, he tells Bong-hee that Ji-wook still gets nightmares too. Young-hee comments on how Jae-hong reminds him of the young Ji-wook, they’re both so self-reliant and independent. Ji-wook returns and Jae-hong immediately runs up to Ji-wook and hugs him. Ji-wook sees Bong-hee and requests they talk. He tells Bong-hee to return back to work however they can increase the distance between them because he wants some alone time too. Plus it will only get harder if she drags it on. Bong-hee replies she’ll have a think about it. Ji-wook agrees she can think about it but first they’re having a meeting. Bong-hee is shocked at the suddenness but follows after Ji-wook.

Young-hee is working hard, she tries to get an arrest warrant again but her supervisor rejects the idea because Hyun-soo’s case is too sensitive right now and everyone has their eyes on it therefore if they did something wrong it will cause an uproar. Yoo-jung spends her lunch reading over journal articles about memory loss. Eun-hyuk sees Yoo-jung and offers her a drink, he plops himself next to Yoo-jung and tells her to eat properly. Eun-hyuk wipes away the sauce from Yoo-jung’s lips and insists she should stop multi-tasking. Eun-hyuk takes Yoo-jung’s laptop and offers to read it for her and summarise it. Yoo-jung tells Eun-hyuk the paper is over 100 pages which Eun-hyuk immediately tries to escape. Yoo-jung grabs onto Eun-hyuks clothes and thanks him. They both smile at each other.
