Abyss Season 1, Episode 6 is a way better chapter, but by this point, it’s easy to be tired by the rubbish thrown at us beforehand.

I truly despise this TV series, and Abyss episode 6 does not change my mind about the dumbness of it all. It’s not exactly the worst chapter of the Korean show, but it’s annoyed me so much up to this stage that I have pent up feelings before I even press play. Episode 6 was mostly about hunting down the murderer, and Cha Min (Hyo-Seop Ahn) revealing his identity to his family. Also, the police and the prosecutor at this stage has accepted that Yeon-cheol looks different. And after Dong-Cheol interviews Cha Min, he realises the pressure to arrest him has amplified.
After the forced press release in the last chapter, Abyss episode 6 sees Dong-Cheol eager to take matters into his own hands to rectify the police department’s mistakes and track down the serial killer Yeon-cheol. He manages to bump into him in hospital, but as usual, the serial killer is resourceful and gets away. This is all good drama essentially but the key issue is each episode is a painful 60 minutes long, and everything feels extremely repetitive.
Dong-Cheol also has to deal with Cha Min’s mother who is fuming at the press release regarding her son, threatening to sue the department with her lawyers. Eventually, she believes that Cha Min’s new form is actually him, and brings him back to work at the company. Cha Min is very confident now, and his mother is admiring his ability to take charge of the board.
Meanwhile, Yeon-cheol is tracking down Hee-Jin, and learns that Se-Yeon (Bo-Young Park) has been revived and taken on a new identity. He is determined to ensure that none of his victims remain alive, and kidnaps her parents, taking them hostage. Ye-seon understandably tries to save her parents but they are unaware it’s her, providing emotional scenes.
The police finally arrive, and Prosecutor Seo manages to stop Yeon-cheol, arresting him at the scene. The news press is wondering why the man looks so different. But the investigation does not stop there. Cha Min and Se-Yeon speak to someone who was close to the night Se-Yeon was murdered, and after putting the pieces together, they learn that Yeon-cheol was not alone that night. Abyss season 1, episode 6 was slightly better and more focused, but at this stage, it doesn’t matter.
