We have finally caught up to the night of Eun-yeong's fall, and the future is going to be mighty interesting. The past always comes back to bite you, and several people are now feeling its merciless jaws snapping at their back. Jae-yeol has a lot to hide, and if everything is as it appears to be, a lot of it is criminal as well. Yoon-jin has quite the work ahead of her, but will Eun-yeong be there for her or against her?
Unless this is a case of masterful trickery by the creators, Jae-yeol (Kim Tae-woo) has hurt Hyeon-joo (Ji An), and has attempted to kill Eun-yeong (Kim So-yeon). He would not kill to hide an affair, especially after he told Eun-yeong she can reveal it. Whoever harmed one sister harmed the other, and unless Director Park (Cha Hwa-yun) hired or re-hired Kang Hyun-chul after Jae-yeol magically left him alone, Jae-yeol is the culprit.
I am not going to dismiss the possibility of the tool going overboard in harming Eun-yeong, or even the possibility that Jae-yeol lacks enough logic to not hide an affair with murder, which would harm the family he claims he wants to protect more, but for now I assume we have the same culprit. Unless the hospital CCTV showed her son there as well, Director Park is mighty guilty over hiding that herself. Someone clearly threatened or paid the orphanage director as well.
Now that the timeline has finally caught up, we have confirmation that Eun-yeong will live, but I wonder where this takes us. My doubts over Jae-yeol being the culprit stem from the fact that we are only half way into the series, but this will not be the case for poor Yoon-jin (Song Yoon-ah), who will now have to face the possibility of her police superintendent husband and the father of her son being a killer. From Yoon-jin's point of view, this will be a terrifying time.
I am also curious how Eun-yeong and Yoon-jin will reconnect. Will the two have a truce while secretly working with Jeong-wan (Song Jae-rim) to uncover Jae-yeol's past? Should I be worried about Jeong-wan's involvement as well? His car was following the witness-turned-killer when Eun-yeong was headed to the hotel. It is exciting to think about the future of the story, as sad as it is for the two heroines and poor Min-joon (Kim Ye-joon).
Which brings us to the Daechi-dong trio. The creators are now starting to humanize Ji-ae (Oh Yeon-ah) a little, but aside from Hye-kyung (Seo Young-hee) there is little love to be had for the other two. I wonder where we will go with them as well. They are no longer suspects for the fall, so I hope they enter the main plot another way. This will be a long week, "Secret Mother". Please give me a lot of goodness when we meet again.
