On this day's broadcast, Baek Hyun-woo (played by Kim Soo-hyun) and Hong Hae-in (played by Kim Ji-won) shared a tearful kiss with their sincere desire to be by each other's side, leaving a deep lasting impression. Baek Hyun-woo came to visit his wife Hong Hae-in, who had left for her hometown without a word, and decided to sleep with her in the room she lived in before marriage. While they were drying their wet hair and treating their wounds, there was a strange current between the couple, and just before their lips met, Baek Hyun-woo, holding on to the string of reason, ran out of the room in a hurry.

Hong Hae-in, who was left alone in the room, anxiously looked for her husband who had run away. After hearing Baek Hyun-woo say, “I will not go into the room,” she returned home with a look of disappointment. Hong Hae-in tried to console herself by saying that it was awkward because she had been living in separate rooms ever since she lost her unborn child and had a huge fight two years ago, but a deep sense of disappointment already remained in Hong Hae-in's heart.

The relationship between the couple, who seemed to have recovered after what happened in Yongduri, began to grow apart again. To make matters worse, Yoon Eun-seong (played by Park Seong-hoon), who lived in a guesthouse on Queens Street, said uncomfortable things to Hong Hae-in about Baek Hyun-woo, and the rift between the two gradually deepened. Hong Hae-in, who was gradually growing resentful toward Baek Hyun-woo, responded coldly to her husband, who was worried about her, and distanced himself from him. In the end, without any word to Baek Hyeon-woo, he headed to Germany to treat his illness alone, causing regret.

While Hong Hae-in endured the fear alone, Baek Hyun-woo heard the news of his wife's departure from his aunt Hong Beom-ja (played by Kim Jeong-nan), who happened to learn of Hong Hae-in's illness. Baek Hyun-woo, who was secretly worried about his wife who he could not contact, headed to Germany immediately after watching Hong Hae-in's interview video. This is because I felt her sincerity when she said that she wanted to spend time with her husband every day after achieving all of her goals.

At the same time, Hong Hae-in was engulfed in despair after hearing the uncertain diagnosis that ‘time is needed’ at the cancer center, which was his only hope. Hong Hae-in, who was spending a lonely time at Sanssouci Palace, which she visited with Baek Hyun-woo during their honeymoon, made a bitter expression when she heard her husband's voice coming from somewhere. Baek Hyun-woo appeared like a miracle in front of Hong Hae-in.

Baek Hyun-woo expressed his feelings for the first time to his wife who left him, saying to Hong Hae-in, "I should have been by your side at times like this." Hong Hae-in also confessed his heart, saying, "I wanted you by my side, I didn't want to be alone. I always thought I wanted to go home with you." For the Red Sea people who could not find hope even from afar, the only refuge was her husband Baek Hyeon-woo and his home. Baek Hyun-woo, who noticed his wife's exhaustion by saying "Let's go home," shed tears and hugged and kissed Hong Hae-in.
