Looks like some more teamwork may be required to patch up their broken families, and more importantly, their own hearts. They stand for a long moment, faltering every time they try to speak.
Ki-tae argues that she agreed that marriage was burdensome, but Se-ah says it was only to protect herself so that she could stay near him, if only as friends. Se-ah finally breaks and cries that she told his mother because no matter what she did, all he thinks about is Jang-mi.
Ki-tae whispers that he never wants to see her again, so she leaves, humiliated. Mom whirls and walks away, and Jang-mi accuses Yeo-reum of doing that on purpose. Jang-mi runs out on Dad mid-sentence, just before Ki-tae shows up looking for her.
Dad can tell something is off and asks if they fought, and tells Ki-tae that her mom was heading to his house with a gift. Ki-tae quickly heads over there. Jang-mi arrives in time to be blasted herself, and her mom asks what she did wrong.
Wordlessly, Jang-mi only drops to her knees in apology and begins to cry. Her mother finally accepts the truth and asks why, but before Jang-mi can speak, Grandma comes to her defense, and says that she knows it was an act but it was never malicious.
She carries the gift blankets with Jang-mi trailing behind her like a naughty child, until they run into Ki-tae. He tries to explain, but both women leave him standing in the street helpless. Mom slaps him hard, and tells him to get out. Ki-tae stands outside the closed chicken shop and calls Jang-mi, but her father answers to yell at him for playing around with his daughter. Dad throws down her phone and picks up a baseball bat, but Jang-mi takes the blame for continuing the charade and stops him with a backhug.
She cries that she did it because he and Mom loved Ki-tae so much, and they got along so well when they were happy about the wedding. She had never seen them like that and she wanted it to go on as long as possible. Just then, Hyun-hee asks to have the volume turned up, and Hoon-dong stops in amazement to hear the heartbeat of his child. Hoon-dong grabs Hyun-hee, dragging her out to the lobby.
He reminds her of her words at the temple, that she wanted to keep the baby. At least this time he was prepared, and Hyun-hee is standing by with some clothes, ha. Jang-mi and her dad gape as Mom makes a family breakfast, which seems awfully nice of her until she snaps at them when they try to talk to her.
She agrees that they were bad parents, and says she wants to split up. She mopes into the store to find Hoon-dong there with everyone in a good mood. Jang-mi starts crying harder to know that Ki-tae likes her, and hits Hoon-dong for telling her and making it harder go get over him. She makes Hoon-dong promise not to tell Ki-tae about her feelings because it will just complicate everything further. Hoon-song sighs that everything is messed up, and tells her that Yeo-reum quit. Jang-mi tells him she was fired and that her parents are getting divorced.
Aww, their friendship is so cute. Ki-tae tries unsuccessfully to call Jang-mi, who spends her last day saying goodbye to the store and vowing to discover what her purpose is.
He walks home to find her waiting outside his building, and grins to see her but hides it when she looks up at him. Jang-mi says that they should never have started this, and that she should have listened when he tried to set boundaries. She says that his mother has been hurt for years by a cheating husband, and that she saw her with Yeo-reum, and asks if he gets it now. Jang-mi arrives at home to find the house in a shambles and her parents screaming at each other over who gets the house and chicken shop.
Jang-mi is left alone, the same as she was when she was a child. Instinctively she starts to call Ki-tae, but stops herself and just goes to bed, crying herself to sleep.
A week later, Grandma and Mi-jung whine in sync about how lonely and boring the house is without Jang-mi to come by. Mom says things are exactly how they should be. Maybe just go back to keeping your mouth shut… or you know, not being a cheating bastard works too. Ki-tae stands in his empty quiet house, no longer looking happy to be alone. He hears the door open and gripes that Jang-mi let herself in again, but we all saw that smile.
He wilts when he realizes he imagined it. His evening continues this way, as he sees Jang-mi teasing Nemo, or stealing bites of his ramyun.
Each time he complains with a big smile on his face, but is disappointed when she fades away. He invites Ki-tae to the wedding, who tentatively asks if Jang-mi will be there. Hyun-hee shows off her sonogram photos to Jang-mi, and invites her to the wedding. Jang-mi asks if the parents will be coming, but Hyun-hee promises she has everything under control.
Jang-mi also shyly asks if Ki-tae will be there. He finally spots Jang-mi right as she spots him, and they both stand for a long moment, staring across the wedding party at each other. Ki-tae starts towards Jang-mi and she tries to stay calm, but they freeze as Hoon-dong and Hyun-hee step between them to begin the wedding ceremony. The ceremony goes off without a hitch, both Hyun-hee and Hoon-doong looking gloriously happy.
The chef-as-MC announces the time to introduce the parents, but Hoon-dong throws him a frantic signal to skip it. Jang-mi goes for a walk and runs into Se-ah. Jang-mi walks away, followed by Ki-tae who witnessed the entire conversation.
He pulls Se-ah all the way to the riverside and stops without ever looking at her. Se-ah tells Ki-tae that she knows his true feelings just by looking at his back. Ki-tae seems to snap out of a daze and whirls, then runs back towards where he left Jang-mi.
Running his fastest, Ki-tae tries to call Jang-mi over and over but gets no answer. They both run, each frantically searching for the other.
