Closing up review season for the year with "Lookout". We get to know Bo-mi a bit more, while Kyung-soo proves his mettle, and Soo-ji continues to be a brave, headstrong, and impetuous woman. Then there is Do-han, who once seemed to have everything under control, but events are quickly slipping from his capable fingertips.
Soo-ji and Bo-mi bond a bit over their mutual trauma, although I'm sure all of the characters in this show are able to do the same. For Bo-mi, her trauma, watching her family die in front of her eyes, has paralyzed her so that she can't go beyond her four walls and protects herself with a biting tongue. We get a bit of Kyung-soo's backstory, something to do with a mother he was ashamed with, but I know we'll have some solid screen time devoted to him, if only because he's played by SHINee's Key.
Outside of the nuclear unit of the rogue justice workers, self-proclaimed leader Do-han is wallowing in his own conscience, but not quite enough to stop his rather brutal plan for revenge that uses people mercilessly. He's still a bit hard to pity. I'm actually enjoying him squirm as his plans start to unravel. His ability to improvise shows his humanity and, at the same time, his ruthlessness. I wonder if Chief Prosecutor Yoon is going to figure out his game, or if they're going to be constantly going to be neck and neck.
As for Eun-joong, he is still a bit too cowardly to really join the rogue team, but I can see him slowly doing more to help them out and thwart the corrupted people in the system. They could use him. But until then, Soo-ji will keep escaping and fighting the bad guys with her team who are slowly pulling away from Do-han's clutches. They are, at the same time, coming closer to uncovering him as their unknown leader.
Detective Nam may not be around for to much longer and to be honest, a utilitarian character like him isn't very interesting. Let's move on!
