'Flower of Evil' Episode 14: Is Hyun-soo faking the hostage situation with Ji-won to come up with a plan?
'Flower of Evil' Episode 14 will see what happens now that Hyun-soo has taken Ji-won hostage and the two have left from his workshop. Is all of this fake?
'Flower of Evil' Episode 13 ended on a cliffhanger as Hyun-soo (Lee Joon-gi) drew a knife and held Ji-won hostage when she had tried to arrest him on suspicions that he had murdered the domestic help of Mr. Baek's family. The fact that he is being set up by the real accomplice, who happens to be none other than Mr. Baek's son Hee-seong, is something that Ji-won is able to gather however she has no other way to prove his innocence except to take him in and do a proper investigation. During this time, Ji-won's teammates also figure out that Ji-won's husband who was going by the identity of Hee-seong all this while is none other than Hyun-soo, the son of serial murderer Do Hyun-soo who is also the prime suspect in the case of the village foreman's murder.
Now, in the promo of episode 14, we see how Ji-won and Hyun-soo seem to be on the same side as the two of them are seen running away from the workshop together. He doesn't seem to be forcing her at all, but his actions have led the police to believe that he has taken one of their own as a hostage. So the cops tighten security around Hyun-soo's home and workshop and also approach Ji-won's mother to check if there has been any contact from either her daughter or her son-in-law in the past few hours. Eun-ha is initially scared of all the cops that come around to investigate but what has us speculate that Hee-seong might target her is the fact that Eun-ha had been at the Hee-seong residence once and had seen him on the bed, connected to all the pipes. Then the look that she gives as she peeps through the doors is one that portrays how scared she is of whoever is on the other side of the door.
The promo also shows how Hee-seong and his family have begun to believe that they might be out of the woods in the case of being Hyun-soo's accomplice, his father's accomplice and murderers by setting Hyun-soo up for all the crimes that were committed. However, what one needs to understand is that this could very well be Hyun-soo's plan to lay a trap for the accomplice who trapped him. We also see Hee-seong refer to someone as a variable that is not constant, a variable that he needs to take care of and we have a bad feeling that this is either Hyun-soo's daughter Eun-ha who could serve as a witness or Ji-won, who could help Hyun-soo prove that he is innocent.
Amid all of this, how will Hyun-soo thwart the plans of the people who he believed had given him a new life by giving him the identity of their son?
