Nam Joo-Hyuk’s plans go awry in Vigilante Episode 7

The episode begins with a news announcement about the attack on Jo-Heon. An onlooker not only spotted the attack but also discovers the vigilante rescuing the detective. Ji-Yong’s ally Jo Kang-Ok (Lee Joon-Hyuk) asks the reason behind saving Jo-Heon. Ji-Yong wishes to turn the detective into a vigilante as well by the end of his mission.

Reporter Choi Mi-Ryeo (Kim So-Jin) wants to visit Jo-Heon, but is not allowed inside the hospital room. Meanwhile, Chief Inspector Uhm Jae-Hyeop visits the detective, so Mi-Ryeo sends her regards through him. He asks the doctors to take care of Jo-Heon. Uhm Jae-Hyeop, who acted as Sewool CEO Kim Sam-Doo’s mole, plans a trap against the CEO himself and colludes with a politician for the same.

On the other hand, Kim Sam-Doo is furious at Mr. Bang for failing to kill Jo-Heon. Mr. Bang, in turn, threatens Sam-Doo, asking the CEO to let him do his job peacefully. Meanwhile, Ji-Yong attacks Sam-Doo’s men as they procure QQ coin-related information from the office. The Vigilante sets fire to the office, exchanges the coin in return for money, and donates it.

The following day, reporter Choi Mi-Ryeo reports it in the news. The orphanage owner, who had received the money, thanks the vigilante. On the office wall, Ji-Yong writes, asking Uhm Jae-Hyeop and Kim Sam-Doo to turn themselves in. However, Sam-Doo soon learns that Jae-Hyeop has plotted against him. When he confronts the inspector general about colluding with a political party, their conversation yields no result. Then, he asks his men to kill reporter Choi Mi-Ryeo.

Ji-Yong’s plans go awry when Mr. Bang kills the orphanage owner just to provoke the vigilante. Meanwhile, Nam Yeong-Gil, leader of the vigilante investigation team, sends his men to raid Mi-Ryeo’s office. However, the reporter live streams the whole raid. When the men catch her, Kang-Ok rescues her in time, asking her to not take risks that might hinder the vigilante’s mission.

The following day, Yeong-Gil goes to the police university and interrogates Kim Ji-Yong. The latter asks why he is being suspected. Yeong-Gil replies he has enough evidence to suspect that Ji-Yong might be the vigilante. He warns Ji-Yong to come clean, giving him one last chance. However, Ji-Yong maintains that he’s honest. Later on, Yeong-Gil reveals to his aide that the phone through which the QQ coin transaction was made was tracked back to the university.

Yeong-Gil meets an unconscious Jo-Heon to tell him that he won’t make the same mistake as him. Meanwhile, Ji-Yong visits Kang-Ok, thanking him for saving Choi Mi-Ryeo. He receives a call stating that Yeong-Gil has confiscated all the students’ computers. However, Ji-Yong isn’t worried. Apparently, he planted the phone in Uhm Jae-Hyeop’s office along with Kim Sam-Doo’s burner phone to further prove their collusion.

Yeong-Gil finds the phone and asks Jae-Hyeop to come clean. However, as he’s on his way back from the university, Yeong-Gil gets into a hit-and-run incident and dies. Once again, this wasn’t according to Ji-Yong’s plan. He is furious and meets Jo-Heon on his way. The latter advises him to stop once and for all, but Ji-Yong asks him to prove to him that justice still prevails strongly.
