Green Mothers Club summary of season 1, episode 14
Episode 14 opens with Eun-pyo remembering Yeong-mi’s harsh words that Jin-ha wanted to take Louis away from her. Meanwhile, Yeong-mi argues with her husband Geon-u about how to control the narrative.
Chun-hui struggles with her husband – he calls and asks for a cash advance as his gambling addiction worsens. Chun-hui walks into a private casino and gives her a divorce paper instead, which shakes him up. Chun-hui tells her husband that they are under a mountain of debt and their family is in trouble. Husband threatens to go to the cops about what she did. Chun-hui loses him and tells him to reveal everything.
A maid who worked for Jin-ha and Louis tells Eun-pyo that she heard Jin-ha and Geon-u arguing once because the man crossed the line. He tried several times to visit her, but the maid had to ask him to leave. Eun-pyo then finds a letter addressed to a Jeanne (presumably for Jin-ha) from Geon-u with a photo where he is naked.
Missing her ex (but also Yu-jun’s husband), Chun-hui meets him in the middle of the night. Chun-hui tells her that she is going to divorce her. She asks him to run away with her but then pretends she’s joking.
While away, one of Eun-pyo’s children recognizes a woman, and Eun-pyo sees a similarity in her because she looks like Jin-ha. Meanwhile, Louis is with Rhea in a restaurant, the woman we assume is Jin-ha, which makes the whole story confusing. Rhea tells Louis that she wants to be introduced to her son. Louis reminds her that he looked for her all over Europe.
Eun-pyo sends Yeong-mi proof that her story doesn’t match by seeing a picture of a naked Geon-u, which was sent to Jin-ha. Yeong-mi angrily confronts Geon-u about it. She asks him to take responsibility for what he does. The next day, Yeong-mi asks Eun-pyo to pretend nothing happened to protect her family and her husband’s career, but Eun-pyo thinks she has no choice but to erase. Jin-ha’s name. Yeong-mi then texts her husband, telling him to expect the worst-case scenario.
Afterwards, Geon-u follows Eun-pyo as she heads to Chun-hui for a meal. When Eun-pyo walks down an alley, Geon-u grabs her from behind and threatens her. Eun-pyo bites her hands and runs to Chun-hui – she didn’t know who it was, stating that he was an “abuser”. At the police station, Eun-pyo tells her husband that she didn’t see the man’s face.
Eun-pyo confronts Geon-u. Geon-u is frustrated and tells her that he and Jin-ha were very much in love, and he tries to make her feel guilty for getting involved and ruining her life. And that’s when Eun-pyo realizes that Geon-u is the one who attacked her in the alley. So she calls her husband, Jae-ung, and tells him who she suspects. Jae-ung uses his police authority to bring Geon-u inside for questioning. They have the glasses he dropped at the scene. Geon-u continually comes up with a different story and calls Jae-ung rude for investigating a future director. Jae-ung loses his temper and has to be separated from him.
And then Jae-ung learns that Jin-ha’s photos are deepfakes. He asks Geon-u how he did this technique. Geon-u lectures Jae-ung on the art and claims that he and Jin-ha communicated through their souls. Geon-u is under arrest for cyber crimes and assaulting Eun-pyo. Afterwards, Eun-pyo wonders if Jin-ha killed himself because of Geon-u’s crimes.
Yeong-mi visits her husband Geon-u at the police station. She is appalled by his actions because he is an intellectual. Geon-u states that he’s had enough of her playing the “intellectual role” and only wanted to get married, so she was a director’s wife. He puts the blame on her and questions her attractiveness. Yeong-mi loses it and she gets dragged away.
Eun-pyo worries about Chun-hui because she won’t pick up her phone. At the end of the episode, Eun-pyo sees Chun-hui’s husband and asks about her. He tells her that she went on a trip with the children.
She finally manages to reach Chun-hui on the phone. Chun-hui reveals that she has moved on and is divorcing her husband. Eun-pyo is in shock over the divorce, but Chun-hui states that she just wants to be happy and wanted to tell him the last time they were supposed to meet (when Eun-pyo was attacked). Eun-pyo is emotional and feels guilty, as she feels like she burdens Chun-hui with her problems every day. Chun-hui wishes her a happy life.
As we near the end of this brilliant series, a lot needs to be stitched up. Hopefully there will be a second season to continue with these characters.
- Rhea sees an article about Jin-ha’s death at home and she looks shocked.
