Netflix K-Drama series The Uncanny Counter Season 2 Episode 7 Recap


An interesting episode fleshes out the story nicely.

We recap the Netflix K-Drama series The Uncanny Counter Season 2 Episode 7, which contains significant spoilers.

Another strong chapter. This episode of The Uncanny Counter had a lot packed into its runtime and made the most of it. Gelly (Kim Hieora) feels at her most interesting now and could prove useful at the end to the heroes, given she appears to distrust Pil-gwang (Kang Ki-young).

The Uncanny Counter Season 2 Episode 7 Recap

As So Mun overpowers Ju-seok following a tense confrontation, ready to consume his evil spirit, Pil-gwang arrives with a timely interruption.

Here, the villain subdues his Counter adversary, hoping to keep his former firefighter “masterpiece” intact, while Gelly narrowly fails in her bid to deliver revenge to Ha-na (however, she finds herself upset at the notion she is “alone” compared to her foes).

What is happening with Ju-seok’s evil spirit?

Next, Pil-gwang hears that if Ju-seok’s evil spirit is to completely consume the former firefighter, he will need to be further provoked. Concurrently, Wi-gen warns a “complete evil spirit” could be born if these two antagonists are turned against each other, meaning the protagonists are at a bit of a crossroads.

In a heart-to-heart, So Mun shares his disillusion over his role as a Counter now that he knows decent people can become evil. Mo-tak urges him to avoid hesitation should an opportunity to summon Ju-seok’s dark spirit arise again.

Elsewhere, the former firefighter is told Lee Chung-jae is still alive.

What gets Gelly worried? And how do the Counters stop a scam?

Despite killing the imprisoned Wong, perhaps as a favor to Pil-gwang, Gelly worries she has been abandoned by her partner, given he left her to fight Ha-na alone. So much so she drives off without agreeing to more teamwork and teases the idea that she could always expose the truth to Ju-seok.

As for the Counters, they’re out to stop a housing scam from affecting innocent lives, in part because it links back to Lee Chung-jae, the man they know they must find before Pil-gwang’s group gets to him first.

Fortunately, the fraudsters are stopped quite easily, though no leads are found as to where their ringleader is. Additionally, Mae-ok lets Jae-youl run free.

Next, Do-hwi finds himself suddenly introduced to the Counters, so a joyous group meal follows. Then, the pianist goes out and enjoys some alone time with Ha-na while a jealous Gelly watches on.

What happens to Jae-youl?

With the encouragement of her son, Mae-ok takes Jae-youl out for a meal, hoping to guide him back toward the right path in life. However, things may soon take a turn for the youngster anyway, given Lee Chung-jae wrongly believes he could’ve colluded with the police to get his fellow housing scammers arrested.

Reflecting on the time Chung-jae spat in the face of his late wife, Ju-seok feels his anger rising. This, it seems, may edge him closer to siding with Pil-gwang, with the former firefighter believing it might get him his revenge over the housing scammers he wishes to take down.

Continuing, Mae-ok saves the life of Jae-youl and, as a result, affords Mo-tak a chance to have a phone call with one of Chung-jae’s men. Little information is uncovered here, but it’s made clear the mega-rich fraudster frequents golf ranges.

Now that Ju-seok has sought revenge on the man who faked Chung-jae’s death, the Counters feel a greater sense of urgency in their mission.

Thus, they express the need to find the fraudster quickly and before anyone else can. Meanwhile, Ha-na rejects Do-hwi’s advances yet leaps into action when an arriving Gelly begins to attack the pianist.

What follows is a frantic battle, and with Do-hwi potentially risking his life to save his crush by jumping in the way of a punch, the episode ends with Gelly confronted by Ha-na, who is now more than ready to fight.
