Here’s a quick recap of the story so far! While looking into Han Gyo Min (Jae Hee) disappearance, San (Lee Joon),Gyeo Wool (Lee Se-young) and Goo Hyung (Oh Jung-Se) stumble across a vampire bar. After a shootout, San gets inject with a blood serum that heals him no matter what and turns him into something similar to a vampire. Later the trio was hired to protect the newscaster Seo Seung-Hee (Choi Song-Hyun), and while figuring out that case San uncovers more information out about the vampire bar and how they obtain their food supply. The more that San looks into the case there are more links there are to Jung Yoo Jin (Kim Yoon-Hye) being part of what they see as an illegal organisation. San later gets a call from an old cop acquaintance, Choi Seon Yeong, to help her figure out her father’s will. He figures out the combo to the safe and finds the actual will, however in the safe, there are pictures for Yoo Jin and Kang Tae-Woo (Jo Bok Rae) that her father, Jang Tae Shik (Choi Gwi Hwa), would have used to make fake ids.

The opening of the show is at a photo shoot. Later that same model is found dead in her apartment with slashed wrists. San meets up with Seon Yeong again after she looked into the connection between Tae Shik, Yoo Jin and Tae Woo. San starts to wondering if they are still working on an undercover on the same or a different undercover mission. Goo Hyung gets called about a new case and San gets escorted out of the house as soon as he gets back from meeting Seon Yeong.

They go to meet their client but the meet with a blind woman called Moon Mi Jin (Lee Chung Ah) whose brother, she believes, was framed for the murders of the two models. She claims to have heard her brother in his dark room at the time of one of the murders. The police don’t believe her since she is blind, and at the beginning even they are sceptical. Gyeo Wool makes them accept the case since she has a soft spot for sisters who are at risk of losing their brothers since she had only just recently lost Gyo Min. There was only one issue, however, Moon Gyeong Ho has already confessed to the murders and the murder weapon was found in their apartment.

There were some similarities to the two murders, both Chae Yu Ri and Jeong Ha Na, had just come home from a  photo shoot and the were later found dead with wrists sliced in their bathrooms. By chance both of their last calls were to Gyeong Ho.

While looking into Gyeong Ho’s past they find out that Doctor Hwang’s (Kim Ki Moo) assistant Se Ra (Jei) worked with him in the past while she was attending a modelling academy. Since Se Ra believes that she has a close relationship with Gyeong Ho, she sincerely believes that he wouldn’t kill the woman like he confessed.

While they were there Dr Hwang pulled San aside to discuss Gyo Min’s notebook that they recovered from the house they were staying at prior to their deaths. He advises San that it contains a blueprint for a blood that doesn’t exist in the real world. Well anywhere than his blood that is. Due to them not knowing how the blood will react they don’t know if there will be any adverse affects to him having it flowing through his veins.

After their conversation with Se Ra, they start looking into who would benefit from the two models deaths. They find out that neither of them was going to re-sign their contracts with their agency so they look into not only the CEO but also the new #1 model that took their place. The CEO of the company admits to being at a loss and is freaking out about how much money they’re losing due to their deaths. The new model, Joo Ha Young didn’t really seem to care either way about their deaths and didn’t notice anything different the last few days before their deaths. She also told them about the rumour that Ha Na pointed towards the killer.

San meets with the corner and finds out that the slashes were actually to cover up puncture wounds that looked to have been made by an ice pick. When San hears that he tries to meet with Gyeong Ho but he refuses to see him.

Detective Park (Ahn Se Ha) sends over the crime scene photos so that they can look into them, but he advises Goo Hyung that the police force is so happy that they had solved such a high profile case.

When they start reviewed the case they tried to find any clues that they police might have missed. They examine the clue that pointed to Gyeong Ho, which is the initials M M which is Gyeong Ho’s initials. San also advises the other 2 about the wounds. They slowly realise that they never checked Gyeong Ho’s dark room while they were at the apartment. So they go back to the apartment, but since Mi Jin is not there Gyeo Wool breaks into the apartment for them. They were a little shocked when they arrived at the dark room as the walls were completely covered in pictures of women’s legs. San notices a DSLR that seemed out of place in the dark room. Mi Jin came back while they were looking through the dark room, but they managed to sneak out due to her being blind.

There was only 1 picture on the DSLR and it was corrupt so they bring the SD card to Dr Hwang who is good with computers, though he threatens to charge them extra. While they were looking at the picture on the computer San noticed that the picture’s properties didn’t match up with the camera that the SD card was in. Due to the discrepancy, they came to the conclusion that the SD card was swapped out.

Goo Hyung calls Detective Park and gets them in to see the crime scene. San uses his new powers and looks at the message that Ha Na wrote in blood to discover it was actually VV that she had written not MM, the water had made the blood run (Very strategically, only on the ends). However due to a large amount of blood in the bathroom San needs to use his inhaler to calm down. When Goo Hyung comes across him he gets him out of the bathroom.

Later while they’re reviewing the information again, San tells them about how he believes that the blood smeared and the original message was VV and instead of it being initials it was a picture of the last thing that she saw. After this revelation, San goes back to the prison and finally gets to see Gyeong Ho. He shows him the last message that Ha Na wrote and he looks shocked at the image.

Meanwhile, Goo Hyung met with Detective Park and found out that Moon Mi Jin is not Moon Gyeong Ho’s sister like she claimed. Detective Park then shows Goo Hyung the picture of Mi Jin (Kim Nan Hee) which is not that same woman that they know as Mi Jin. Goo Hyung gets Detective Park to send him the picture that he showed him, and he flipped it to San. San they showed the Picture to Gyeong Ho and confirms that the picture is Mi Jin.

Right after hanging with Goo Hyung, Dr Hwang finished decrypting the image and sent it to San. San shows Gyeong Ho the image which was who they thought was Mi Jin, but it turns out that it was, in fact, the person who threatened him into confessing to the murders.

The Vampiress, who we later find out is called Yo Na but for simplicity, I will use it now, calls San and tells him that she knows about his past. She also hints that she also knows about Yoo Jin and his personal connection with her. She tells San that he has 1 hour to come to her location or else she will kill Ji Min.

While Ji Min and Ya No wait for San, Ji Min still holds on to the fact that Gyeong Ho is such a good man and he would never kill anyone. Ya No tells Ji Min about how her accident that left her blind, wasn’t an accident but in fact, Gyeong Ho who had done that to her. Though at first Ji Min doesn’t believe Ya No, but slowly she starts believing it.

San Goo Hyeung go back to Gyeong Ho’s apartment to find Mi Jin alone. When they get her off of the chair there seems to be a trigger for a bomb, however, it was filled with confetti. However, Ji Min was shocked from the explosion so they took her to the hospital. While waiting in the parking lot Gyeo Wool met up with the Ya No and felt hurt since she lied to her, and exploited her weakness for sisters. She warns her to no longer trust anyone and tells her that she reminds her a lot of her brother Gyo Min. When the guys come back Gyeo Wool tells them the new information and states how she is going to look into the woman.

San goes back to see Ji Min and lets her know that the police will start looking into the model’s deaths and that Gyeong Ho will probably be found innocent. Ji Min tells him that she knows about her accident and how he Gyeong Ho was the cause and she will not be able to forgive him.

Yo Na calls San to talk, and after he probes just a little bit she tells him her name. She also gives him a hint that the woman that he’s been looking for (Yoo Jin) looks very good on camera.

He called in a favour with Seon Yeong and gets her to pull the CCTV footage from the hospital parking garage. While reviewing it at the end of the episode, he catches a glimpse of Yoo Jin taking pictures of Ya No.

I love this episode and how much much this season is filling out the story, but I can’t wait until San find out what he is turning into. I can’t wait for the next episode.
