On the last episode, Vincenzo showed up at the courthouse as a key witness. No one knows how he got into that position. Today we find out!
VINCENZO RECAP EPISODE 7
In the beginning, Vincenzo comes in as a witness. He became a witness because he is an accuser witness. While at a Chinese restaurant, he overheard the Babel chemical executives talking badly about the families of the victims wanting more money so he hit them.
he also stole one of their phones when he was doing it and presented their text messages as evidence that what they say is a lie about the chemical filtration system.
The judge does not want to allow this evidence but has to allow it. In addition, Vincenzo calls another witness to debunk the corrupt doctor’s argument. That doctor is the wife of the corrupt doctor.
The wife is the #1 leukemia specialist in Korea who built a pediatric cancer center. She is highly respected and the highest authority of cancer research in Korea. Her colleague asked her for a second opinion in the Babel case, so she gave it to him. But she did not tell her husband because she did not want to hurt his ego.
Vincenzo was able to ask the wife to be in the court case while they were at an art museum looking at a painting of
Joan of Arc Liberty Leading the People. It looks like she was interested in Vincenzo while they were looking at the painting, but put on her doctor’s hat when he showed her all the information about her husband. For instance, he has a secret girlfriend and took out her money from their bank. He also secretly tried to divorce her. She knew that her husband tried to divorce her secretly and had a secret girlfriend, but she did not know he snuck out their money.
She agrees to help them in the case if Vincenzo goes to see an Opera with her.
At court, she brings all the evidence that shows that the husband lied about the cause of cancer. It was 100% the companies fault because they did not use the right filter. She also says her husband is a drug addict and drugged one of the witnesses.
A huge argument breaks out between husband and wife and it’s a mess. Court is adjourned.
Jang Joon-woo, the real boss of Babel, gets all upset and takes Choi Myung-hee and Han Seong-huk out on a terrifying joy ride to yell at them.
Myung-hee tells her team at the lawyer’s office to target Cha-young with everything they can. This leads to Cha-young getting thrown in jail again.
Vincenzo gets Cha-young out of jail because he knows that the head prosecutor’s son is a soccer player and there is an Italian coach coming in to recruit a Korean player. Vincenzo knows this Italian coach, so during the son’s soccer practice, Vincenzo tells the head prosecutor, if he lets Cha-young out, then he will tell the Italian coach to take the prosecutor’s son. The Italian coach shows up at the practice right then and jokes with Vincenzo, showing that Vincenzo actually knows him. So the prosecutor agrees.
At the same time, Vincenzo finds out that they cannot dig up the gold or the building will explode.
Meanwhile, on their father’s memorial day, we find out that Jang Joon-woo killed their father while their father was in the hospital and asks if he is going to kill him like that as well? We see a flashback of this happening. Joon-woo asks if he knew that this entire time and tells him that he isn’t as big a fool as he thought he was.
Back to Vincenzo, more problems are brewing for him because he finds out that the thugs are going to demolish the building in one week. Also, the tenants find out from a bum that there is gold somewhere in the building. All the people that placed the gold were killed, he only knows because he saw it happen in a restaurant and looked at one of their cell phones.
So the tenants all agree not to move out of the building. they will fight to stay until the end! The thugs will show up in one week to take the building and the tenants will protest.
Vincenzo and the landlord hire professional protesters to get hit during the protest against destroying the building. Their plan is to live broadcast it over the internet using the snack bars kid who live streams. But on the way, one of the protesters gets a phone call from the government saying one of them was in contact with a person with a highly infectious disease so they have to go to that center right away. They turn the bus around to go there.
Vincenzo does not know that this has happened and sees a huge fight going on at the building. His landlord calls him to let him know what happened and we see that the tenants are actually fighting the thugs. It looks just like the
Joan of Arc painting (correction Liberty Leading the People painting!).
Okay, this episode was a bit boring to me, it was mostly filler and I honestly started drifting off during a lot of it. But it did have some funny scenes. My favorite has to be the
Joan of Arc (Liberty Leading the People) painting recreation, though I do not believe for one moment that the tenants could take on professional gangsters and basically rip them to pieces. Sure, they were drunk, but that should have made them easier to beat up, not harder.
I would have liked it if the tenants were accidentally high on a Babel performance-enhancing drug or something which gave them super strength. Like if Vincenzo and Cha-young got some of this drug and it looked like salt or something so the tenants sprinkled it on their food. I don’t know. I just wanted that fight scene to be a tad bit more believable. It was funny, but in my mind I kept thinking, these thugs, on top of being professional thugs, have metal bats! These tenants don’t stand a chance!
