I didn’t realize how much plot QoR jammed into each episode until I started doing recaps. It’s impressive (and a little daunting). Also, from now on, I’ll mark Park Shi-hoo scenes with a time code, e.g., 43:21 (minutes:seconds). It’s a ridiculous fangirl thing to do, but some of you might find it useful.
Hwang Tae-hee quits, and goes down in a blaze of glory. First, she smacks Yeo-jin in the forehead with her resignation letter. Then she gives Yeo-jin the “take this job & shove it” speech everyone hopes they’ll deliver.
Tae-hee tells Yeo-jin that while she (Tae-hee) did many things as Team Leader, she never stooped so low as to take credit for someone else’s work. She warns Yeo-jin that ambition without ability isn’t enough to succeed and that Yeo-jin’s nasty tactics might work in the short term, but she’ll be undone by them in the end. Tae-hee finishes it off with a classic “have my things mailed to me, trash,” and stomps out, leaving Yeo-jin breathless with rage.
