The Glory Season 1 Episode 13 Summary
Yeon-jin continues to suffer, but it’s not all victory for Dong-eun in a chapter that subjects her to immense personal emotional pain.
This summary of the Netflix K-Drama series The Glory season 1 episode 13 contains spoilers.
It’s the morning after the night before, and this episode of has a lot of that kind of hangover the glory. After the public spectacle of Sa-ra in episode 12, she’s in police custody, rumors about her and Yeon-jin are all over the internet, and Dong-eun seems to be doing much better than everyone else despite this unfortunate and deeply personal confrontation with her mother. Sticking with the hangover analogy, she drank a few glasses of water before bed.
The Glory Season 1 Episode 13 Summary
With stories like this, it’s always interesting to see how the deposed leader affects the subordinates. No sooner had Yeon-jin asked Do-yeong if he was finally ready to leave her after the recent embarrassment, Hye-jeong brought the devastating record on Myeong-o’s tablet to Jae-jun. The vultures are already circling. And both have a motive for securing first place – Hye-jeong for obvious reasons, as she has always strived for status and is only marginally better off in Yeon-jin’s society than Dong-eun, and Jae-jun because he wants to raise Ye-sol as his own and is obviously unwilling or unable to do all the child-rearing himself. The two consider themselves a small power couple.
Hye-jeong is strengthened by this new arrangement. She spends her days hanging around with Jae-jun, and when Yeon-jin confronts her, she finally stands up for herself. The implication is clear – Yeon-jin is no longer a queen bee. And it only gets worse for her as the episode progresses.
What is Detective Shin’s retirement plan?
For example, Yo-jeong’s purchase of the funeral home pushes Detective Shin to transport Myeong-o’s body as soon as possible. Since he has nowhere else to put it, we quickly get what he meant when he said earlier that Myeong-o’s vacuum-sealed corpse is his retirement plan. He blackmails Yeon-jin and demands a retirement home in Hawaii and some pocket money. Since Myeong-o’s body was never buried, he can turn it up at any time. However, we see that it has already been found, which will presumably stop Yeon-jin from paying and put Detective Shin’s retirement in jeopardy.
On a character level, Dong-eun and Yo-jeong really start to take precedence here, with the latter’s backstory gradually taking on some form. His thirst for revenge is obviously shaped by the exploits of a ruthless killer, the irony of which is that he’s not that far from becoming the same himself, but he’s similarly shaped by trauma as Dong-eun, and it’s interesting too see how their different plights have shaped them in different but similar ways. They share a moment of intimacy here that is tender but still doesn’t cross the bar into outright romance; I’m glad the show has been low key in that regard.
How does Dong-eun’s apartment catch fire?
Also, Dong-eun has other things on her mind for the time being, least of all her mother, who uses her apartment as a kind of drug den and meets a man she calls her “boyfriend”, but who could just as well be a stranger. Dong-eun gives up classes at her mother’s request and then tries to kick her out of the crib. but she’s totally laden and puts a platter of roast meat on the carpet. The whole place goes up in flames. But the depth of Dong-eun’s feelings really cuts through here, the pain of her own mother cheating on her again, the razor-sharp verbal abuse she is subjected to. You get the sense that she could stay in that fire and let them both burn in it, maybe believing they’d get better, and at this point I’m not entirely sure she’d be wrong.
