There is no honor among thieves, as the saying goes, and this seems to be true of Young-soo and Kwang-chul, who despite their long history of burying bodies and swearing mutual allegiance are at each other’s throats in the present day. I said in my synopsis of the previous episode that the battle lines seem to have been drawn, and that’s pretty much the impression one gets here. There’s no way everyone will get out of here alive.
A Model Family Season 1 Episode 7 Summary
Meanwhile, Deuk-soo has wormed his way into Dong-ha’s household as part of the family, much to Dong-ha’s obvious – and quickly physical – displeasure. This arrival feels like an asshole, all things considered, but it’s certainly a way to complicate things and further cloud the family dynamic at the core of the show.
Deuk-soo is a way for Joo-hyun to talk Dong-ha safely off the ledge he’s tumbling on, especially given how dangerous the people he’s currently associated with are. However, his involvement in Kwang-chul is still not clear to Joo-hyun. But altruism doesn’t seem to be central to Deuk-soo’s own motives. He might turn down financial incentives to leave, but he’s also doing everything he can to piece together evidence in the form of the contents of Eun-ju’s phone – including the crucial video of her playing away.
If it wasn’t obvious, there’s one more key detail that a sneaky opportunist is likely to uncover while sneaking around Dong-ha’s property – the bodies in the backyard. And of course that is exactly what happens.
Meanwhile, Kang-jun, who was previously knocked out by Kwang-chul, is fully focused on getting revenge. But the whole dynamic is complicated by the fact that it appears that not only was there an undercover cop in the ring, but there was also an undercover crook in the police force. It’s a bit reminiscent The departedhonestly, everyone seems to be playing everyone else, and no one to really trust in this fragile game of cops and robbers.
Still, things are heating up, aren’t they?
