The webtoon’s not all fun and games when you’re starving and have to resort to breaking and entering to get yourself something to eat. It’s even worse when you have a killer on the loose and everything’s going haywire in the way “W” does best (what can I say? I love this crazy show).
“W” continues to be a warning against writers who make their villains all powerful and so have to deal with the consequences of their decisions. Chul’s decision leaves Yeon Joo in a limbo of emotions even as he has no recollection of their times together. Everything’s returned back to normal, until the killer goes rogue and “W” has us once again wondering what the hell is happening and how the hell are we going to keep our fingers on things.
“W” once again turns things on its head with So Hee fading out of existence, the killer having an existential crisis (what with Seong Moo’s shoddy writing skills) and Chul having to make a difficult choice to protect Yeon Joo. Turns out that when separation and amnesia are on the table, some writers are awfully talented in making it all believable even as our hearts get broken in the process.
Hye Jung finally learns the truth about Mal Soon’s death. Unfortunately, learning the truth doesn’t help her as much as she would have liked. Myung Hoon’s still an unrepentant asshole. Kang Soo gets his surgery and Hye Jung and Ji Hong reach an impasse.
Hye Jung’s comes closer to finding out what happened with Mal Soon, but a VIP crisis puts her in a position where Myung Hoon can have her fired. Ji Hong confesses the depth of his feelings to Hye Jung and Kang Soo’s ill. Very ill.
Hye Jung and Ji Hong receive a case that brings up conflict in their relationship and has us realizing that as much as we might have thought otherwise, Hye Jung and Ji Hong don’t have supernatural powers: they’re just two neurosurgeons trying to do their best and learning that ultimately, sometimes, all you can do is hope for a miracle.
It’s a sweet ending to the tale of the psychopath who might not have gotten ‘cured’ but who’s learned how to love and stand by others in his own way. Young Oh comes to Suk Joo’s rescue and is in turn rescued by his father. Suk Joo opens a can of worms that weeds out his enemies and has Soon Ho finally getting what he desires. Young Oh and Gun Myung mend their broken relationship and we leave our characters happier than how we’d met them. It’s a beautiful ending, for a Beautiful Mind.
Young Oh’s love for Jin Sung is beautifully innocent and so magnanimous that it brings tears to the eyes of even the most cynical of persons. Jin Sung turns out ill, very ill. Suk Joo gets a rude awakening and Young Oh makes an unbelievably big sacrifice for love (although he probably still hasn’t put a name to it) that has us confirms that just because he can’t put words to his emotions, doesn’t mean he can’t feel even deeper and stronger than anyone else can.
Sometimes, even adults are clouded by optimism and hopelessness to believe that the world treats orphans as it should. Hye Jung and Ji Hong’s relationship continues to grow. Seo Woo’s getting better. Myung Hoon’s still in the dark as to who Mal Soon’s granddaughter is. And Hye Jung shows up in time to talk down a patient from making a humongous mistake.
Turns out that we can never get enough of Chul and Yeon Joo’s kisses, especially if he follows a scathing argument about whether or not Chul has free will with a smoking hot kiss. Yeon Joo finds herself suddenly hitched. Chul sets out to courting his girlfriend turned bride. So Hee’s fading away. Do Yoon starts to get suspicious and the killer’s back and makes Yeon Joo his next target.
