Of course Kim Bon survives the car bomb (as if there was any fear of him dying). I was curious to see how he was able to escape and I was a bit disappointed that someone just handed him a key to his handcuffs and he just upped and left the van. Seriously, the van stopped right in the middle of the road, with no other cars and the other car following closely behind. Yet they didn’t notice him and the guards open the door and run to the side. *rolls eyes* but it’s okay. He’s alive. Now makes you wonder, as Bon later on said, “who wants him dead and who wants him alive.” The most logical reasoning is it’s the lady Chief who wants him alive – so who’s the real bad guy? there are no other characters left so I’m guessing it’s the Director. and it turns out the Voice is quite a powerful guy in the government!
I like the short separation between Kim Bon and his friends – it felt like we entered the 3rd and last chapter – the slow burn before we reach the climax. It was nice to see Aerin temporarily move to Jeju Island to stay with her parents. It must have been a welcome change from the all the stress and “deaths” in the city. Bon showing up suddenly in Jeju was a great surprise and his funny ajumma clothes were funnier! How can he make ugly ajumma clothes so sexy is beyond me. and I really love his deadpan humor.
Oh and his loud snoring was hilarious!! I can imagine his charismatic image just got shattered because of this night. it makes him look human though, not just super agent and babysitter extraordinaire.
The reunion of Bon and Jiyeon and Do Woo was sweet – you can really see how deep their friendship is. and this also means the operation if back on. This time, they really need to catch the bad guys. How many lives does Bon have left?
Another nice scene is Bon’s dinner with the KIS neighbors. After all these years of being alone, Bon must feel very touched to find real friends outside of NIS. Real people who like him just as he is. Who missed him and gave welcomed him back to the neighborhood.
while KIS and NIS never got a chance to work together directly, I love that KIS is just so dang useful, sometimes even more than NIS. Jiyeon needed someone to go into the Voice’s house as a housekeeper so they can have intel on the house layout and steal the documents they need as evidence. She asks the help of Aerin, who agreed, because she finally found out the truth about her husband and wants to seek retribution. KIS to the rescue as Eunha was able to secure a job invite through her father in law, and helped train Aerin to pass the interview. the Head housekeeper is meticulous, to never comment about her looks, needs someone with a great sense of taste, and has a weakness for handsome guys. Aerin passed the interview and now the team has a shot in finding the documents! I just hope Aerin does not get caught!!
Last 2 1/2 episodes left – there are still so many unanswered questions and I hope they don’t rush the episodes!
