Without any way to defend herself against an invisible enemy, our clueless heroine is soon booted out of the company much to Shin Ae's satisfaction. His heart aching for Mi Poong especially after a fruitless day of trying to find any means to clear her name, Jang Go comforts his dejected wife and assures her that he will do whatever he can to prove her innocence.
Despite being puzzled how the ring she thought was taken during a robbery ended up underneath a chest of drawer, Mama Kim nonetheless is too grateful to have her husband's ring back to think much about it.
Not happy with merely chasing Mi Poong out of the company, an extremely gleeful Mama Jo quickly shows up at Mama Lee's house to inform her that her daughter-in-law was just fired from her company. Believing Mi Poong must be guilty right away, a furious Mama Lee refuses to listen to our two leads' explanation and yells at Mi Poong to leave her house.
While upset by her mother-in-law's words, Mi Poong nonetheless decides to swallow her tears and get up the next morning to make a full table of breakfast for the Lee family. Frustrated to see Mi Poong still at her house when she got up, Mama Lee swipes all the food off the table and tells Mi Poong once again that she refuses to live with a criminal.
Finally coming to the conclusion that there could be no happy ending for someone such as herself, Mi Poong asks Jang Go for a divorce. Stunned that Mi Poong would go as far as suggesting divorce, Jang Go pleas with her for another chance but finds himself speechless when Mi Poong tells him that while their marriage was a blissful one for him it was hell for her.
Jang Go did tell Mi Poong several times that he is willing to move out of his mother's house but by this point Mi Poong just wants to live peacefully with her mother and her nephew. I also find it interesting that Mama Lee is not exactly happy to get rid of Mi Poong especially knowing how much her son has come to resent her for destroying his marriage but alas, Mama Lee just can't bring herself to let go of her prejudice against our heroine.
Wanting to at least give Mi Poong the peace she sought, Jang Go finally agrees to the divorce but tells Mi Poong that he hopes she changes her mind before their divorce becomes final in the next few months.
Bracing the dangers of avoiding the police (it looks like it's illegal at some areas) and inescapable conflicts with other vendors, Mi Poong puts her broken heart behind her as she focuses on surviving.
Confident that she has finally got rid off Mi Poong and Mama Kim out of her life for good, Shin Ae turns her attention to the matter of finding a way to keep her daughter by her side. His heart melting into a puddle when Yoo Jin refuses to go back to the orphanage and tearfully begs "Couldn't I live with you and auntie?", Hee Dong decides to suggest to Shin Ae that they adopt Yoo Jin as their daughter. Relieved that her daughter had cried to Hee Dong exactly the way she had instructed, Shin Ae pretends to be conflicted but of course ends up agreeing to Hee Dong's suggestion.
Not happy at all with her son's intention to adopt some body else's child, Mama Jo voices her opposition but alas her son doesn't seem to be too worry about her opinions at all. Fortunately, Grandfather Kim also expresses some concerns and Hee Dong agrees to just let Yoo Jin stay at the house for a bit before they proceeds with the adoption process.
Waking up with a start after a dream where her deceased husband demanded "Why didn't you find my father?!", a shaking Mama Kim tells her daughter that they must do all they can to fulfill her husband's dying request. Concerned to see her mother so shaken, Mi Poong agrees and promptly takes out an ad in the newspaper to find her grandfather. According to the previews it looks like Grandfather Kim will see the ad by next week's episodes.
You guys ready for a HUGE twist?!
The camera turns to a man sitting on a plane heading for Korea...and the man is none other than Daddy Kim himself!
He is ALIVE?! How? This is a game changer! My biggest worry right now is that since we still have 14 episodes to go is Daddy Kim going to have amnesia or something so Shin Ae's lie won't get exposed right away??
I was also pretty surprised that the two leads' divorce went through so fast. I am a bit torn that Mi Poong gave up on her marriage that quickly but then again given how important her family is to her I can see why watching her mother kneeling in front of Mama Lee was the last straw for her. What didn't make sense to me is why Jang Go wouldn't just move out of the house when he kept telling Mama Lee he would and she in turn had told him to leave as well?
Oh, well, I was actually secretly happy that Mi Poong was the one that so resolutely showed that Jang Go might not be able to live without her but she could certainly move on for the sake of her family. This of course is going to make it that much more satisfying when Mama Lee figures out that the daughter-in-law she wanted to get rid of so badly is actually the wealthy princess she wanted for her son all along.
ps. Now that Daddy Kim is back alive and well I guess that's the end of Daddy Jo and Mama Kim for good...
