Still on the run, Seok-kyung manages to get close enough to Dan-tae and attempts to assault him. However, she is stopped just in time by Dong-pil (Park Ho San), who quickly takes her away from the scene before Dan-tae notices her. He does so because if Dan-tae were to catch her, she would be dead. He quickly calls Seok-hoon (Kim Young-Dae), who rushes to the aid of his sister.
Seok-kyung, who is still angry at herself and grieving her mistakes, lashes out at Seok-hoon, telling him that he should leave her, because they are not even siblings. However, for Seok-hoon, being blood-related doesn't matter to him. He will always consider Seok-kyung as his sister. He promises to help and protect her, and she agrees. Fans were thrilled to see that the Joo siblings had finally reconciled.
