Through sheer will (or b/c it is really bad to have your heroine die half way through the show), Jin Eon actually does the impossible and brings Hae Gang back to life.
Tae Seok's speech makes me wonder if Hae Gang was that person that allowed Jin Eon to remain spotless before. By the way, despite Tae Seok's talk about hating people who are pure but that's exactly the kind of person he is trying to make sure his brother Kyu Seok can remain.
Gaining more confidence as he talks, Tae Seok proudly tells Jin Eon that there is no way he can be beaten by someone like Jin Eon. For all of Tae Seok's big talk, his cool is shattered when Jin Eon informs him that the woman he has been trying to kill the last two times is not Yong Gi but Hae Gang.
In her haste to run away, Yong Gi hurts her ankle but fortunately Kyu Seok shows up in time to help her and Woo Joo. Kyu Seok was going to just coldly ignore Yong Gi but ends up softening when Yong Gi grabs his leg and pitifully pleas with him to take her daughter.
With no where to go, Yong Gi names Mama Do's place much to Kyu Seok's surprise. (Kyu Seok lives at Mama Do's house and he didn't know before this time that Yong Gi has started working there.)
Having convinced Hae Gang to let him stay in her hospital room for the night, Jin Eon quietly tells Hae Gang how he first met her. Smiling as she listens, Jin Eon recounts how he liked everything about Hae Gang and how she was the only thing that existed for him.
Of course Hae Gang had to ask the natural follow up question "Why did you guys separate then? Because your love had cooled?"
After a short pause, Jin Eon replies "Because I was exhausted by my love."
I Have A Lover Episode 24
Not satisfied with Hae Gang's effort to just change the topic, Jin Eon pushes her for an answer. Answering Jin Eon honestly, Hae Gang replies "The me who met you for the first time in 2015 loves you, but as for your wife who first met you in collage I don't know if she still loves you."
Despite feeling a bit forlorn after hearing Hae Gang's answer, Jin Eon nevertheless still breaks into a smile when Hae Gang teases him and tells him that she wants to love him.
Taking Hae Gang to a cafe, Baek Seok slowly tells her everything he knows from her twin sister Yong Gi to why Yong Gi had stolen her car that fateful day.
Looking at the kids who are fighting to sleep next to her, Hae Gang smilingly suggests that they should just all sleep in the living room together like they used to.
After ignoring Jin Eon's insistent phone calls a few times, Hae Gang lays awake but is unable to stop herself from thinking about Jin Eon.
Overwhelmed with emotions, Jin Eon calls out "Hae Gang, Hae Gang... Honey (Wife)"
I am sort of happy? I really thought our heroine would regain her full memory by now but I guess I should be happy that she at least knows her real identity now.
One thing I was really satisfied with this week's episode is Hae Gang's speech to Jin Eon that while she herself loves him but she can't vouch for the Hae Gang that shares all the memories with him. At this point, Hae Gang still sees herself as a separate being from the wife Jin Eon keeps describing but at least she is not so far gone in love that she doesn't realize once her memories come back her feelings towards Jin Eon might change.
ps. I know I shouldn't get all soft towards the big bad but this scene between Tae Seok and Jin Li sure makes me wish they could just live happily instead of destroying everything with their greed.
