Do-hee meets with CEO Park, who has a new concept image to present to her — a sexy photo-shoot. Do-hee’s a little hesitant and CEO Park reassures her it shouldn’t be too awkward since she’ll be doing it with fellow swimmer, Kyung-woo. The sound of his name makes Do-hee even more determined not to do it. But CEO Park tells her that they can dispel all those childbirth rumors with this photo-shoot — it’s not a request, it’s an order.

At the restaurant, Kang-chul is totally drunk now, and he tipsily asks Ho-kyung why she likes him. He cutely tells her that she shouldn’t like him, though, because he’s… he lowers his voice… gay. She laughs it off, but he repeats it, yelling: “I’m gay! Gay!” until he passes out drunk at the table. She spots the crumpled up assessment next to him.

Ho-gu’s head whips around so fast it gives instant lie to his insistence about being over Geum-dong, and he gasps to see Geum-dong laying right there on the couch. Do-hee stops Ho-gu from going to him — you know, since he’s so annoying. She picks up Geum-dong, and Ho-gu is so overcome he can only run and hug them both. He wails that he missed Geum-dong so much that he wanted to die, and kiss-kiss-kisses the baby’s head while Do-hee smiles.

Ho-kyung gets Kang-chul to sit, and even manages to maintain her sweetness-and-light demeanor when he gulps a drink down and tries to go. She drags him back down onto the bench, denying that this meeting was anything but an accident, and swears that she heard him when he said he’s not interested and only wants to be friends.

In fact, Ho-kyung reminds Kang-chul that she’s a psychology major and that he may need her help in his future cases, but he starts to leave anyway. He stops and asks if she’s ever heard of someone’s sexual preferences changing, and suddenly their talk looks more like a therapy session.

She leaves the baby with Ho-gu, and he coos over Geum-dong as Kang-chul pretends to not care. But Kang-chul watches as Ho-gu shows Geum-dong the “belly button” that fell off. He explains that if you cry and laugh, it will fall off, and then when it falls off, the belly button needs to be carefully disinfected. Ho-gu starts to cry because he won’t be around to disinfect it for Geum-dong — instead his adoptive parents will be the ones to take care of it. The doorbell rings and Ho-gu goes to answer it, thinking it’s Do-hee returning from her meeting. Instead, it’s Coach with the adoptive parents.

Do-hee’s still in her meeting with CEO Park and the rest of the board of directors who are there to cancel Do-hee’s contract and replace her with Sung-shil, her rival. But CEO Park is one tough cookie, and asks someone to convince her why it’s a good idea to get rid of Do-hee. When someone brings up the rumor about the baby, she point-blank asks Do-hee if she had a baby.

Ho-gu leads Do-hee inside but she can’t stop crying, and she says she’s afraid the tears will never stop. She tells him that this has happened before, when she cried for three days straight after her parents’ forty-ninth day memorial ceremony. She huddles under the covers and whines that she couldn’t even cry when they died. Her sobs wake the baby, and she pats him on the tummy to comfort him. Ho-gu pats Do-hee to comfort her in turn, and all together now: AWWW.

Ho-gu softly murmurs that she probably just held back too much — his father says tears are like urine, and you have to let them out regularly. That’s so oddly gross, yet sweet. He figures Do-hee’s tears are a good thing, and tells her to let it all out today.

Kang-chul goes back to the empty alley and fumes when he sees the light in Ho-gu’s window go out. He kicks the soup pot which alerts Ho-gu (who’s sitting on the steps) to his presence, and Ho-gu picks up the pot and follows Kang-chul to his car. He’s too late, and Kang-chul peels out leaving Ho-gu to wonder why he came.

Do-hee lurks outside of Ho-gu’s house, ducking around the corner when she sees Ho-kyung walk up. Ho-kyung is once again tipsy, and as she stumbles in, she sees her old shoes in the trash bin — the same shoes that Kang-chul had tied for “Ho-gu.” Furious that her dad was going to throw them out because they’re old and worn, she yells at him, wondering if he’d like it if she threw out a memory as well — like his old love letters or wedding ring. She gets reprimanded by Mom, though — no one talks smack to her honey while she’s around!

Do-hee can only find Ho-gu’s room after she calls him to come get her, and when she’s getting ready to leave with her baby, she echoes Coach’s words, saying that his room is nice and cozy. She and Ho-gu both add at the same time that it’s a good place to hide. Methinks Coach was planting some seeds, because Ho-gu invites her to stay the night, saying it’s too late to find a hotel room.

He gets an extra set of blankets from Ho-kyung and makes up the bed. When he says that he’ll sleep at Tae-hee’s place, Do-hee tells him it’s so late, so he should just sleep here. He adorably fails at nonchalance as he tries to protest, but once he sees that Do-hee’s set up a spot next to the bed for him, he settles in.

As for Do-hee, I loved her in this episode. I mean, I love her just generally, but this episode was fantastic in letting us getting another glimpse of who she is behind her façade. I’ve been impressed with UEE since the beginning, but this is my favorite episode for her yet. I especially was moved by watching her attempt to keep distant from her child melt away as she brought him home, tearing up as she held his tiny hands and looking so much in love with her baby. She may not have originally wanted this child, and she may plan to give him up for adoption, but she’s still his mother and she still loves his cute little face. And let’s face it, that baby is cuuuuuuuuuuuute.

Maybe Ho-gu will adopt him. After all, despite the fact he’s terrible about respecting Do-hee’s privacy and the boundaries she’s set (I’m still annoyed by that from the previous episode, and even though I know it will end well, I’m not a fan of him following her to her motel), he clearly is head-over-heels for this little guy. Hey, maybe if it is Kang-chul’s baby, he and Kang-chul can adopt it and raise it together! What, too progressive?

Hey, a girl can dream that Dramaland will give her a happy ending where everyone wins — Do-hee gets to keep swimming and win her gold, knowing that her child is being taken care of by the best mama figure; Ho-kyung gets her revenge and can torment Kang-chul for the rest of her life; Kang-chul gets to be with the most beautiful person he’s ever met; and Ho-gu gets to play hero-savior-sweetheart to everyone and raise the cutest baby ever. Win-win-win-win-win.

But Kang-chul is unbending, hammering in that she must take responsibility for the consequences of her actions, since being maligned doesn’t retroactively make the deal go through. He coldly calls her “irrational” for being a single mother in the first place (which is therefore a sign of her compromised judgment), since it’s an abnormal state that nobody in her sane mind would choose. Oh, you are the worst kind of ass—the kind who thinks you’re right. I can’t wait for you to be painfully and miserably torn to shreds by Ho-kyung. I’m already sad in advance that it won’t be as gruesome as you deserve.

When opposing counsel objects, he thunders at her that a man and a woman dating, marrying, and having babies is “this nation’s correct order.” No, I’m pretty sure that’s just a nursery rhyme. But apparently they hand you morality badges with law degrees now, and Kang-chul sneers at the plaintiff with contempt for daring to contradict society’s proper order.

The angry plaintiff asks Kang-chul if he’s saying she should have aborted her baby. He looks at her in honest-to-goodness confusion and asks, “Why are you asking me that?” OH MY GOD.

Flashback to Do-hee screaming at her team to run, and then terrifying the other team with her forceful kicks. As she kicks another home run, she celebrates by unzipping her track jacket as she runs about the bases, scoffing at everyone staring at her. What, like they’ve never seen a sports bra before? Watching her as he walks by is student Kang-chul, and present-day lawyer Kang-chul matter-of-factly tells his secretary that the reason he broke up with his girlfriend is because “she’s scary.”

Do-hee and Ho-gu continue to walk because they’ve got no other choice, but once they reach the top of a hill, they look back at the lights in the city. Ho-gu marvels at how pretty it is, something he didn’t notice when they were walking through it. Do-hee agrees, adding that people will make a point to go out of their way to see something that’s beautiful from far away, but close up is so dirty.

Case in point: the high school couple sitting on a nearby bench, drinking soju and smoking cigarettes. Do-hee marches over, chastising them for smoking and drinking while wearing their uniforms. But the boyfriend stands up and tells her she’s not his mom, so she shouldn’t tell him what to do or he’ll break her arm.
