'Crash Landing on You' week 4 might have come a week later than anticipated, but the tragedy the episodes spurn has us wondering what is in the future for Yoon Se-ri (Son Ye-jin) and Ri Jeong-hyeok (Hyun Bin). Fate did bring Se-ri and Jeong-hyeok together through a freak accident and time and again, Se-ri kept missing her chance to return to Seoul.
After all, she cannot remain in North Korea with Jeong-hyeok forever, so she must return to her place, however, she couldn't leave after Jeong-hyeok got shot to save her in the previous week's episodes.
Now, she takes him to a hospital instead of going to the airport where Jeong-hyeok had secured her a passport and a way out of North Korea. She also donates her blood for him because there was not enough in the hospital and continued to stay with him and take care of him.
This made Jeong-hyeok angry initially because a lot of lives were put on the line to get Se-ri on the plane. However, once he learns of how she saved his life, Jeong-hyeok apologizes to her and they even share a passionate kiss.
However, things turn awkward between them very soon and the two of them agree to move on as if nothing happened. When officer Cho Cheol-gang arrives at the hospital to arrest Jeong-hyeok, he is unsuccessful only because Jeong-hyeok's father who is also a high ranking director arrives on time to stop Jeong-hyeok from being arrested.
After seeing the seriousness of this all, and also because of how awkward things have gotten between her and Jeong-hyeok, she decides to get help from Gu Seung-jung (Kim Jung-Hyun). She trusts that he had informed her family and is not aware of his unresolved feelings for her.
So when Seung-jung uses this opportunity to be with her and alienate her from her family, he manipulates Se-ri into believing that abandoning Jeong-hyeok is the best thing for him and his friends. He even gets her to accept his proposal for marriage as that would give her a way to leave North Korea without attracting attention.
However, before any of this could take place, Jeong-hyeok arrives to help her and save her. Initially, Se-ri tells him that she is going to abandon all of them because it is now time for her to return, however, when she sees that he is in no condition to return by himself, she offers to give him a ride, only she takes a car that is low on gas. The two are stranded and while they are together, they decide to return to the village together.
By choosing to leave Seung-jung, Se-ri manages to escape from getting captured by Cheol-gang because he finds out that Seung-jung had her hidden at his residence. While Se-ri and Jeong-hyeok do manage to return in one piece to the village, Se-ri gets kidnapped by Cheol-gang's people and she is convinced to lie to Jeong-hyeok at gunpoint that she is finally leaving with Seung-jung as planned.
Even as she speaks, Jeong-hyeok figures out that something seems fishy and he heads out to search for her, but he hears a gunshot over the call, and the week's episodes come to an end there. The tragedy has hit them, and it is unclear how Se-ri and Jeong-hyeok will navigate this in the future. However, it must be remembered that Se-ri's death has now been announced by her family back in Seoul because Seung-jung did not inform her father.
The next episodes of 'Crash Landing on You' can be streamed on Saturday and Sunday on Netflix.
