Hong Hae-in expressed his hostility towards Yoon Eun-seong, who took everything from him and his family and shamelessly followed him to Yongduri. However, rather than back down, Yoon Eun-seong made Hong Hae-in angry by threatening to come to his side if he wanted to protect his precious people. Hong Hae-in's anxiety grew as he even heard from Baek Hyun-woo, who returned home late at night, that he had fought with a real estate agent who was in the same league as Yoon Eun-seong.

Baek Hyun-woo, who did not know that Yoon Eun-seong came to visit Hong Hae-in last night, felt awkward at Hong Hae-in's careful hands treating his wounds day and night, but was struck by a strange feeling as if he had returned to the honeymoon period. Baek Hyun-woo, who used the traffic jam as an excuse to spend some alone time right before work, ate ice cream next to Hong Hae-in like when they were dating, and calmly reflected on their past years.

The two people thought about what it would have been like if they had healed the wounds they had received from each other in time, and at some point, a feeling of regret bloomed in their eyes. In particular, Baek Hyun-woo's sincerity that he would still choose Hong Hae-in even if he went back to the past with his current memories, made viewers' hearts sink.

As such, Hong Hae-in could not hide his devastated feelings upon hearing the news that Baek Hyun-woo, who said he would be by his side even in difficult times, was not only relieved of his position in the company but also placed on standby due to Yoon Eun-seong's scheme. In the end, Hong Hae-in said, “I will solve my problems from now on. “I feel burdened that you, who have nothing to do with me, are suffering for no reason,” he said, drawing a clear line at Baek Hyun-woo, leaving him bitter.

Hong Hae-in then visited Yoon Eun-seong in person to protect his family and Baek Hyun-woo with his own hands. He chose the quickest and most accurate way to regain the stolen property, house, and management rights and take revenge on Yoon Eun-seong. Yoon Eun-seong, who did not notice this, was even planning to announce the couple's marriage at the press conference on Hong Hae-in's return as CEO of Queens Department Store.

When the press conference finally began, Hong Hae-in confessed that he had received a threat from Yoon Eun-seong to take Baek Hyun-woo hostage, and that he had a limited time limit. The unexpected remarks drew the attention of reporters, as well as Yoon Eun-seong and Baek Hyun-woo, to Hong Hae-in, but even in the chaos, Hong Hae-in's gaze was only directed at Baek Hyun-woo. Attention is focused on the future of the two and whether Hong Hae-in will be able to protect Baek Hyun-woo.

Meanwhile, the revenge plan of Baek Hyun-woo and Hong Beom-ja (played by Kim Jeong-nan), who are trying to bring down the mother and son of Yoon Eun-seong and Mo Seul-hee (played by Lee Mi-sook), is also progressing step by step. By recruiting Grace Go (played by Kim Joo-ryeong), who was closely related to Yoon Eun-seong and Mo Seul-hee's mother, they succeeded in finding out the whereabouts of Chairman Hong Man-dae (played by Kim Gap-soo) whom Eun-seong Yoon had embezzled. Above all, another uproar is expected as Chairman Hong Man-dae, who was in a coma, wakes up.
