Green Mothers’ Club season 1, episode 14 recap

Episode 14 opens up with Eun-pyo remembering Yeong-mi’s harsh words that Jin-ha wanted to take Louis off her. Meanwhile, Yeong-mi is arguing with her husband Geon-u about how to control the narrative.

Chun-hui is struggling with her husband — he rings her and asks for a cash advance as his gambling addiction worsens. Chun-hui enters a private casino and gives him a divorce document instead, which rattles him. Chun-hui tells her husband that they are under a mountain of debt and their family is in trouble. The husband threatens to go to the cops about what she has been doing. Chun-hui loses it and tells him to reveal everything.

A housemaid who worked for Jin-ha and Louis tells Eun-pyo that she overheard Jin-ha and Geon-u arguing once because the man crossed the line. He repeatedly tried to visit, but the housemaid had to ask him to leave. Eun-pyo then finds a letter addressed to a Jeanne (presumably this is for Jin-ha) from Geon-u with a photo where he is naked.

Missing her ex (but also Yu-jun’s husband), Chun-hui meets him in the middle of the night. Chun-hui tells him she’s getting a divorce. She asks him to run away with her but then claims she’s joking.

While out, one of Eun-pyo’s children recognizes a woman, and Eun-pyo sees a similarity in her because she looks like Jin-ha. Meanwhile, Louis is with Rhea at a restaurant, the woman we assumed was Jin-ha, making the entire storyline confusing. Rhea tells Louis she wants to be introduced to his son. Louis reminds her that he searched all over Europe for her.

Eun-pyo sends Yeong-mi the evidence that her story does not add up due to seeing a photo of a naked Geon-u, which was sent to Jin-ha. Yeong-mi angrily confronts Geon-u about it. She asks him to take responsibility for what he’s doing. The next day, Yeong-mi asks Eun-pyo to pretend that nothing happened to protect her family and husband’s career, but Eun-pyo feels she has no choice but to clear Jin-ha’s name. Yeong-mi then messages her husband, telling him to expect the worst-case scenario.

Afterward, Geon-u follows Eun-pyo as she heads to see Chun-hui for a meal. When Eun-pyo heads down an alleyway, Geon-u grabs her from behind and threatens her. Eun-pyo bites his hands and runs towards Chun-hui — she didn’t know who it was, stating it was a “mugger.” At the police station, Eun-pyo tells her husband that she did not see the man’s face.

Eun-pyo confronts Geon-u. Geon-u gets frustrated and tells her that he and Jin-ha were very much in love, and he tries to make her feel guilty for getting involved and ruining his life. And that’s when Eun-pyo realizes Geon-u is the one who attacked her in the alleyway. And so, she rings her husband, Jae-ung, and tells him who she suspects. Jae-ung uses his police authority to bring Geon-u inside for questioning. They have the glasses that he dropped at the scene. Geon-u continuously comes up with a different story and calls Jae-ung rude for investigating an upcoming director. Jae-ung loses his cool, and he has to be separated from him.

And then, Jae-ung learns that Jin-ha’s photos are deepfake. He asks Geon-u how he did this technique. Geon-u lectures Jae-ung about art and claims he and Jin-ha communicated via their souls. Geon-u is under arrest for cyber crimes and for assaulting Eun-pyo. Afterward, Eun-pyo wonders if Jin-ha committed suicide due to Geon-u’s crimes.

Yeong-mi visits her husband Geon-u at the police station. She’s dismayed by his actions because he’s an intellectual. Geon-u states he is tired of her playing the “part of an intellectual” and that she only wanted to get married, so she was the wife of a director. He puts the responsibility on her and questions her attractiveness. Yeong-mi loses it, and she is dragged away.

The ending

Eun-pyo is worried about Chun-hui because she isn’t picking up her phone. As the episode ends, Eun-pyo sees Chun-hui’s husband and asks about her. He tells her that she went on a trip with the children.

She finally manages to get hold of Chun-hui on the phone. Chun-hui reveals that she has moved out and is getting a divorce from her husband. Eun-pyo is in shock about the divorce, but Chun-hui states she just wants to be happy and that she wanted to tell her the last time they were meant to meet (when Eun-pyo was attacked). Eun-pyo is emotional and feels guilty, as she feels she burdened Chun-hui every day with her problems. Chun-hui wishes her a happy life.

As we approach the ending of this brilliant series, a lot needs to be sewn up. Hopefully, there’s a second season to continue with these characters.
