The Episode Review

Payback turns from intriguing to contrived in a matter of minutes and it’s fairly stunning how this all happened. With Myung In-ju behind bars, he one way or the other concocts a plan with the guards to: Break out with out alerting every other guards on obligation (with out even sporting a disguise), dodge all of the cameras each inside and out of doors the middle, make it into the center of city, stand up to the rooftop with Chairman Oh with out alerting anybody inside that constructing, throw him off the roof, return to the detention heart and get inside his cell earlier than the police even present up on the scene and discover a lifeless physique on the ground.

If that wasn’t sufficient, Eun-yong is painted as the number one suspect however no person bats an eyelid as he makes it into the center of GMI Bank, the place Chairman Oh’s dying ought to be massive information.

It’s a disgrace too as a result of Payback does have some good factors, particularly the characters and the overarching story. Sadly, this episode is nowhere close to the usual of the others and a black spot in what’s in any other case been a strong crime drama.
