This episode of Jackpot brought it up to 8.9% and into second place. There was some romance, a smidge of character growth, and plenty of revenge. Despite all fo that, I was extremely disinterested in the episode. It was very explanation oriented and lacked the action that defined earlier episodes. I never thought I’d say that.
What was solid about this episode was the direction. Dae-gil’s training and his growth were stunningly filmed. The director fully utilized the beautiful scenery to enhance how far Dae-gil had come in a year’s time.
