This Netflix K-Drama Hellbound Season 1, Episode 6 recap – ending / finale explained contains spoilers.
Read the recap of the previous episode.
Ever since the plot featured a newborn baby as a sinner, I wondered if the K-Drama series was going to go on and kill an innocent child. In the finale we find out, but it also ends with a twist.
Hellbound Season 1 Episode 6 Recap – Ending & Finale Explained
To open the finale, Min Hyejin calls Youngjae and tells him that Arrowhead and “The New Truth” are working together. Yongjae tries to call his wife, but she doesn’t answer. She sends him a message telling him that she took her baby to “The New Truth” to find out why their baby received the decree. Song Sohyun meets Deacon Yuji and shows the pictures. Deacon Yuji asks his colleagues to make sure Song Sohyun does not leave his room. Kim Jeongchil wants to separate mother and baby immediately. Youngjae messages his wife and tells her to get out of there immediately as he walks over to Min Hyejin.
To help Min Hyejin and his companions infiltrate the building, they ask a man to pretend he will be holding a protest in ten minutes. They find Song Sohyun; Min Hyejin fights the men who take care of the mother and the baby. They all manage to get into a car and escape with Song Sohyun and the baby. Kim Jeongchil punishes Deacon Yuji for losing mother and baby, knowing their secret is in danger – the baby’s protest will take place the next day.
Min Hyejin, Youngjae, and Song Sohyun find refuge with a man named Mr. Lee, who also received an executive order. Min Hyejin wants to continue his plans by broadcasting the demo of the baby. She maintains that God would not kill an innocent newborn baby. “The New Truth” worries and plans what to do after learning of Min Hyejin’s plans. Min Hyejin also organizes asylum when this is all over for the parents. She tells Song Sohyun that she doesn’t need to be there for the protest.
However, Mr. Lee calls out “The New Truth” and tells them that the parents and Min Hyejin are with him. He also states that he got his decree 3 years ago and is bound to hell today but did nothing to sin so he is confused. His demonstration takes place five minutes after the baby’s time has expired. Kim Jeongchil tells the man it is a message and calls Mr. Lee a messiah. Mr. Lee doesn’t want them to steal the show, so leave a clue as to where he is (his phone).
Mr. Lee has lost his mind and threatens to kill Youngjae before killing his wife. Youngjae manages to taser him, then alerts Min Hyejin and others. Song Sohyun escapes into the freezing cold and talks to people outside; she reveals that her innocent newborn is subject to the demonstration. The moment is shared on social networks. Song Sohyun puts her baby down and sobs, knowing it’s the end. Meanwhile, Min Hyejin fights Mr. Lee and manages to knock him unconscious.
The monsters arrive for the baby, and Song Sohyun grabs her child to try and escape them – the audience watches as it unfolds. Youngjae arrives and tries to help him, but he is thrown to the ground by one of the monsters. It is absolute chaos. Youngjae holds his wife and baby tight as the monsters surround them. They perform the ritual and leave. Parents die, but, in a twist, the baby’s cries can be heard. Their child is still alive, it was a sacrifice. Mr. Lee removes the corpses and sees the baby, and he is confused. He tries to kill the baby, but Min Hyejin reaches him in time.
And then the monsters arrive to kill Mr. Lee. The chaos is finally over.
Min Hyejin carries the baby through the crowd and they leave her alone. “The New Truth” is coming, but people are blocking them. A man calls them crooks and liars. Deacon Yuji beats the man for defying the will of God. A policeman stops him. Min Hyejin runs away in a car and holds the baby tightly.
At the end of the episode, a dead corpse at the hands of the monsters suddenly comes to life – I believe it was Park Jungja. Hellbound’s finale leaves viewers with a question: why do corpses regenerate and bring people back? What are these monsters doing and what are they a part of? We will have to wait for a potential season 2.
