'Penthouse 3: War in Life': Su-ryeon faces Dan-tae as Hera Palace crumbles
Su-ryeon is determined to kill Dan-tae herself and he wants to see her dead as well
For fans of 'Penthouse 3: War in Life', each episode ends on an unpredictable note. After all, this is one series where nothing is quite what it seems.
The team of Logan (Park Eun-seok), Yoon-chul (Yoon Jong-hoon), Su-ryeon (Lee Ji-ah), Ma-ri (Shin Eun-kyung) and Dong Pil (Park Ho-san) might have been succesful in getting rid of Dan-tae (Uhm Ki-joon) and Seo-jin (Kim So-yeon) . But if there is one thing that an be said about Dan-tae, it's that you can't keep him down for too long.
In the latest episode, Ma-ri is the first one to find an injured Yoon-chul, Seo-jin and Ro-na, and she quickly rushes them to get medical help. As expected, Seo-jin is alive, but she has lost all her memories and can't even recognise Eun-byeol. She doesn't seem to remember anything and is under constant emotional and mental distress. And by the looks of it, she might never truly recover. Yoon-chul, on the other hand, suffered extreme head injuries and is in a coma, as Ro-na deals with heartbreak at the thought of losing her father.
Although they never had a real relationship, seeing that technically he is all she has when it comes to blood relations, she tells him that he should wake up so that she can forgive him and even calls him dad. However, peace at Hera Palace can only last so long, as Dan-tae manages to escape the asylum in Japan. He calls Seok-hoon and tells him that he is returning to South Korea but has no idea that his son is on Su-ryeon's side. Su-ryeon and Logan go to the port to capture him, but Dan-tae is a step ahead, as he had an inkling this might happen. Seeing that his son betrayed him, he is now on the run, as he is a wanted criminal in the country.
He meets with secretary Cho and demands that he get him a high number of explosives. Secretary Cho helps him acquire the same, but has a sudden change of heart and decides to inform the cops. Dan-tae who hears the call bashes his head in with a brick and then kills him, as he has no use for him. Dan-tae's grand plan is to blow up Hera Palace on the day of Su-ryeon's engagement. However, Su-ryeon anticipates that he will come to Hera and has the engagement to lure him. She doesn't realise that he plans to bomb the palace entirely.
After getting a call from him, she rushes to the penthouse while Logan and Ma-ri help the guests escape. Dan-tae tells her that he will blow the place up and kill them both in the process. Su-ryeon, armed with a gun, shoots whim twice, and they both get into a physical fight. By the end of it, Dan-tae has the bomb timer while Su-ryeon has her gun.
She shoots him in the head to end it all, but just as she does so, he pulls the bomb trigger. Dan-tae falls to his death, and fans were thrilled to see what could possibly be the end of this villain. (TRIGGER WARNING, the following images are graphic in nature).
