Ray's After Ending is one of the key features in the original story of Mystic Messenger that can be obtained from the in-game store for 300 Hourglasses (Note that the player does not need to do anything first and can simply buy it any time). The route takes place two weeks after the events that occurred in the good ending of Ray's route, and consists of four days of continuous play where Ray, you and the members of the RFA will be in search of the unknown whereabouts of Saeyoung (707) after he was unexpectedly kidnapped in the events of the night of the 9th day of Ray's route in Another Story.
The ending kicks off with a news report. We get to know that the prime minister still keeps denying all the allegations that were made against him, and as Saeyoung's company, SEVENSTAR DRINK, has been donating all the profits to orphanages. It is a nation-wide success! We get thrown into a chatroom, where the RFA’s members are discussing their incoming meeting. Everybody starts to talk about the situation, and how it evolved with the pass of time; Zen explains that the RFA gained a lot of attention since they tried to expose the current prime minister, Saejoong Choi. Yoosung mentions the Mint Eye. At first, everyone demands to find out who was behind it, but as of now, things have completely stopped. Everyone then shows their concern towards Saeyoung and his whereabouts. Our goal is to find where he is and bring him home. Oddly, V hasn't been seen as much ever since the RFA exposed the prime minister, yet he made it an exception to come to visit the meeting.
As the rest of the RFA leave the chatroom, we are left alone with Saeran. He tells us that he has a bad feeling about things, but wants to stay positive and keep his hopes up. Once the meeting begins, Yoosung is still curious about the Mint Eye. Zen joins in to mention that the leader looked like Rika. However, Jaehee tries to deny it, saying that the saviour was taller and more outgoing than Rika.
Soon after the meeting begins, V arrives and apologizes for being late again. Before the meeting commences, he says that he wants to give us a perfume as a gift. Saeran has a bad feeling about it, so he tells the MC to hold their breath. It turns out the perfume is a gas variation of the elixir. As V sprays it in the room, the RFA starts coughing and eventually passing out, all except Saeran.
Once everybody falls asleep, Saeran and V have a conversation about the gas. V explains the gas was made mainly for Saeran, to make him fall asleep and bring him to the place where Saeyoung is. Since his plan failed, V tells Saeran to hurry up, because Saeyoung’s life is on the line. He asks Saeran to trust him, but he feels uneasy, he is unsure about what he should do. Once the conversation ends, Saeran blocks V from accessing the Messenger. Saeran becomes conflicted over V has betraying the RFA. Later, the RFA is in a hospital, where MC wakes up first but remains paralyzed. Saeran expressed his love towards her, and meanwhile, he feels more sure about what he should do.
In the first chatroom of the day, MC, who is the first one to wake up, asks Saeran where he is going. He notifies her that he is currently in the intelligence unit, discussing a recent attack on the messenger. Suddenly, V enters the chatroom, despite Saeran previously blocked his access. He informs both of them that Saeyoung is in mortal danger, and the only way to leave him free is to make Saeran show up to Saejoong. At this point, Saeran doesn’t know how to feel. He thinks that V is luring them into a trap, but at the same time wants to have trust in him.
Rika enters the next chatroom of the day, and she's impressed that MC is still with Saeran. Once she says that she and V are together again, Rika will explain what they plan to do. Their plan consists of protecting Saeran by creating a new family with him and Saeyoung. MC notices Rika has changed despite being with V for a short period of time. Rika says she is finally feeling the truth of V's love; he recognized her flaws, and he accepts her for who she is. However, Saeran doesn't understand why they got back together, why is V so obsessed with her, despite what Rika did to him?
Next, we get an insight into Saeyoung's side. He's back at Rika's apartment along with his agency boss and Saejoong. Saeyoung is shocked that his "childhood saviours" turned against his brother and him. The boss, though, interrupts his thoughts, saying that he would have never ended up in this situation if only he did not try to expose his father. Saejoong reveals that some tasks of Saeyoung were, in fact, meant for him. Since he thought the agency protected him from the government, Saeyoung had no idea about this. After this, the three decided to make a deal: if Saeyoung refuses to work for them, the boss would kill him and Saeran. Their ultimate plan is to destroy the RFA and C&R. Saeyoung tries to make his way out of the situation using some chopsticks used by his boss, but he’s unsuccessful. Hi boss injures his head and Saeyoung passes out.
In a later chatroom, MC sarcastically congratulates V on reuniting with Rika. MC calls V out, saying that he has no idea how badly Rika hurt Saeran. While MC is talking about this, V provides an old family photo of his, which is dark and gloomy. As his mother aged, she lost her hearing, and V’s father left her. Because of what his father has done, he is afraid to leave Rika and her fragile mental state - he is afraid of his future, afraid that Rika might be gone just like his mother. V believes that everything would turn out alright: Rika would recover and become stable like the others. Previously, Rika learnt she does not always need to prove herself, and with this, her inner devil started to be more stable. She understood she cannot save and love like others, but she would still try to become a happy person.
Saeran creates a secure chatroom, which only the MC, Saeyoung and he can access. The two of them would always be hunted by their fate, his father clawing his way after them. However, they won't give up, they will resolve this and get their victory. Rika surprises us with a childhood picture of Saeran, V and her when they lived at a cathedral. The three of them used to have a lot of fun together. Rika, now, feels the need to recreate that family, and rules out that both her and Saeran struggle to control their personas. While in a car, a broadcast plays on the radio, informing us that the Chairman of C&R hold 49% stakes of SEVENSTAR DRINK and that they lied about donating the profits to orphanages. This was all a hoax by the agency boss and prime minister. Meanwhile at C&R, Jumin's father finds Zen's phone in the meeting room and contacts the MC, asking them if they saw the news.
In the evening, V comes back to the chatroom with an address. He gives MC and Saeran a task to go there in order to save Saeyoung. This is, of course, Rika's old apartment. Rika joins in and breaks it to us that the apartment was the place where Mika and she first came up with the idea of Magenta and Mint Eye. She also questions if V ever thought about someone staying at the apartment, but he says he had no reason to.
Saeran returns in the next chatroom explaining that he's checking the apartment building's monitor. MC asks what he believes would happen when they visit tomorrow to which he only replies that they would always stay in love each other.
As the night begins, the secure chat catches activity. Saeyoung's username pops up, Saeran and MC immediately take notice of this and begin asking questions. It turns out this is Vanderwood speaking to them, the agency ordering him to check through 707s phone. Vanderwood starts talking about the agency, stating 'once you enter your life becomes meaningless, broken down and wasted. No one is able to enjoy true peace before death.' He shows his concern towards Saeyoung, admitting that Saeyoung was lazy at home but during missions, mysterious. Saeran begs him to tell us more about Saeyoung, but the only response we get is to "run while we can" before Vanderwood takes his leave. In the next chatroom Saeran says that if Vanderwood handed Saeyoung's phone to the agency his boss would be able to read everything they say in the chatroom. Saeran then tries to sum up Saeyoung's life. He tried his best to protect Saeran, and disappeared one day without an explanation. This caused Saeran to hate him for years-on-end, while the only thing Saeyoung wished for was freedom. As the morning rises, Zen enters the chatroom to inform everyone that he woke up from the gas accident. Due to yesterday's news broadcast every media and news company started attacking them. If Jumin and Jaehee hadn't fallen asleep, things would have been resolved more quickly. It is clear V betrayed everyone.
MC and Saeran have finally make it to the apartment, where they attempt to save Saeyoung. As soon as they enter the boss confronts them. Saeyoung has been trapped here for 2 weeks, stating that we shouldn't have come and that we would only get in trouble for it. The boss explains that he won't lay a finger on the two while telling Saeyoung to relax. He says that he and Saejoong need the brothers as marionettes to serve as a promotional banner for the prime minister's campaign. Saeyoung breaks down and suggests an offer. He's gonna stay with the agency while letting Saeran go only if he's allowed to check on his brother. Unfortunately, Saeran and MC leave him where he is. Later, Vanderwood explains that he never handed Saeyoung's phone to the agency and that we should meet him at a specified address.
Saeyoung has sacrificed himself all his life, making Saeran's head go numb. Another news report strikes, this time it's Saeyoung. He starts off saying that him going missing is a hoax and that he had been going to therapy for 2 weeks which "confirmed he has a mental illness". All this time he has framed the prime minister as a criminal. These lies were told to lower the media's suspicion. Rika enters a chatroom showing us that Saeyoung is with her. V and Rika agreed to put him under the Elixir due to Saeyoung's intelligence. Their entire deal consisted of the agency and prime minister lending the twins to V and Rika who want to create a family with them. Rika claims it's the only thing that can be done in order to "protect them." Meanwhile at the C&R, Jumin and a team of board directors are holding a meeting. They conclude that it is too risky to part ways with the CEO, who has been legendary due to CFO, Jumin's, help. In the end, Jumin ends up resigning from the company due to him largely commanding the RFA as well. He takes all the responsibility for media publications.
Vanderwood, Saeran and MC meet. As they get to Vs house, Vanderwood informs MC that they're the only one that can enter the house. It is revealed that Vanderwood lied, and his plan was to take MC to Rika. Later, he sends a few texts explaining that he's leaving the agency behind, and taking the risk. After that, Rika and MC are relaxing in the living room. Rika has become calmer after finding satisfaction in small things. She mentions that once Saeran finds out the MC is with her, he would come to save MC. With that, Rika would be able to create a family by trapping the brothers with her and V. Rika start praising Jumin in the next chatroom for making a tough choice because he's cold hearted and has no problem "Sailing the world." She asks both C&R and RFA to forget the truth and past for the twins sake. V hops in explaining to MC that they can't stay in their house because of their profound feelings towards Saeran.
Saeyoung wakes up to inform the MC that they must attack the agency and his father in order to escape. Briefly before Vanderwood left them, he had left a note with the agency's security info Saeyoung had never seen before. V enters the room informing Saeyoung that he must hand his phone over to the agency, and there is nothing they can do about it. Saeyoung begs V to rethink who his father is and to not force him and his brother back into their childhood environment. V replies that he would now be their new father, to which Saeyoung says that him and Rika are out of their minds. Saeyoung would do whatever it takes in order to be free like Saeran, V denies this, and subsequently raises Saeyoung's drug dosage.
V enters a chatroom informing us that Saeyoung is fine. He also believes that Saeyoung would find a way to free Saeran because he is smart and that would put V and Rika into danger. Zen opens a chatroom, saying that they should stop talking on the messenger as it's risky and there is no point in it now that Jumin resigned. Saeran and Vanderwood are now seen together, saying that the info Vanderwood gave to Saeyoung was bait. Now that the agency is distracted, they can find their weak points.
Once Rika realizes that the RFA won't be using the messenger anymore, she informs them that their path is way different than both hers and V's. She claims that keeping the twins with them is the only way to "get out". The Chairman visits Jumin's penthouse to confront him about his company leave. Thankfully the C&R did not completely fall apart since the allegations. However, Saeyoung's announcement has made the situation even worse. The Chairman reveals that he did sign a contract with Saeyoung's company, which's value was close to nil. The Chairman mentions that comprehending V would be a challenge to them. In response, Jumin states he thought he knew his best friend and now feels foolish. His father's only advice is to let V go the same way he did with his mother. Meanwhile, MC has an interesting dream in which Saeran and they are enjoying their stay at a resort while he feeds her sweets. MC truly wishes it was not just a dream.
In the morning, Saeran reports that he is near V's place and would be there soon. He only brought his phone with him. Rika joins to question if Saeran would like to live with them happily, but Saeran only wants to be where he should be. He realizes that everything that happened at the Mint Eye was traumatic. Now, he looks at the past concluding that a world of happiness is one where no one is in pain, similar to what Rika tried to recreate at Magenta. All of this because she, too, has suffered in the past. Rika flinches out, yelling at him to stop before leaving the chatroom. From now on, Saeran promises to cherish himself and protect those dear to him. Soon, Saeran makes it to the house and V and Rika seem to be overly happy about his arrival. Rika informs MC that Saeran doesn't belong to them and that MC should just go back home. She promises not to torture him anymore because she claims that she has changed.
Saeran is later seen chained up by Rika, telling him to hang in there until they "go back to their happy selves." After Rika leaves, Saeran stands up to hug the MC, so thankful that he got to see them again. He apologizes that he couldn't find a way to get out with the player, but he did find a way for Saeyoung and MC to leave. Between 11pm and midnight there would be a blind spot in the security because he and Vanderwood manipulated the agency's schedule. This shocks the player, causing them to refuse to leave Saeran and ditch the plan. However, Saeran keeps assuring them not to worry about him, he would still love them even if they're not together. After Rika informs MC that they would have to leave tomorrow, Saeran is still determinant on his plan. He reflects on his time at the Magenta, saying how he was blinded and tricked to believe he was useless, while on a marathon to reach Rika's satisfaction. Now, he found his true worth after meeting the MC and running away. It's here that Rika notices that Saeran started to change. He tried to understand her which Rika didn't like because she thought he was making fun of her. V then tries to comfort her, saying that they should forget about it, and the two leave for a while.
V and Rika return. Rika goes to rest, while V questions if MC is sad because they have to leave. V takes his turn to acknowledge Saeran's change, stating now, Saeran's heart is bigger than his own. V is proud, yet jealous of him at the same time. He wants Saeran to hide this from Saeyoung, claiming it would cause conflict for everyone. Saeran replies that no matter how hard they try to restrain him, it would not work. Meanwhile, Yoosung is seen laying down on Zen's lap, expressing how bad he feels for Saeran, it hurts to know the truth.
Back at V's studio, Rika grows frustrated over Saeran's change. Predicting what's about to occur, Saeran asks MC to step outside and go for a walk. As soon as MC leaves, Rika flinches out on Saeran because Ray went away. Saeran understands that she is stressed out because he grew. Rika suddenly has a change of attitude and starts breaking down due to Saeran's understanding of her. Contrary to what Saeran wants, Rika wants to be hated and despised by him, and doesn't want to be understood as she cannot forgive herself for what she did to him. Saeran admits that he would rather 'choose understanding over hatred.' Rika still wishes for love she didn't receive as a child, and she thinks the reason she has hurt people was because she was scared they would walk away if she didn't turn them into her puppets. Rika and Saeran join a chatroom later saying that they went out to buy ice cream and would get one for Saeyoung as well.
V brings Saeran outside to talk to him. V recalls how he met Rika as he was drawn to her insecurities. However, now she's started to grow less cruel over time and he's accepted it, since no one is forcing her to change. V recalls what Saeran has said before about 'understanding than hating,' and proceeds to tell him the true cause of his mother's death.
Rika goes into a chatroom and questions what's taking the two so long, wondering what they're talking about. Soon, V joins to finally break it to us that he had told Saeran about the death of Saeran's mother and that in fact Rika murdered her (even though the documented case labeled it as suicide). They all agree to go find Saeran, saying he must be in pain upon hearing the news. Rika goes on a rant about how scared she is and that she doesn't want to see him since she had hundreds of imaginations about her adoptive mother who never loved her properly. She explains she wanted to become a loving parent, but instead turned into a killer. It's soon discovered that Saeran left an abstract note, stating his location. When V and Rika leave the chatroom to find Saeran, he joins the private chatroom abruptly. He sends MC precise coordinates of where they should meet for the "last time".
As the time of the escape plan grows nearer, Saeran hopes that MC and Saeyoung would be able to leave safely. He thinks things would work out if he stays where he is, feeling happy about these events. Obviously, MC is incredibly sad due to these circumstances, causing Saeran to comfort them. He asks them to remember him and be happy, and he would always be watching them. Later, the RFA and Vanderwood join the chatroom greeting the player expressing their heartbreak for Saeran. MC and Saeyoung are expected to escape in about 2 hours. After this time, Rika and V finally find Saeran in remote location after decoding the note. In a confession, Rika explains that she is dangerous and no matter how much Saeran forgives her, she would never be able to come back to him. After hearing this, Saeran explains that his mother was just uncontrollable, but still she wasn't completely evil - not enough to be murdered. His life turned into a storm after her death. Rika starts apologizing profusely, saying that she shouldn't even dare to be forgiven for it. Still, Saeran chooses to understands her and forgives everyone that has hurt him. After their apologies, Saeran confesses the entire note was a setup for his plan. He reveals that by now, MC and Saeyoung would have escaped and he only came here to sacrifice himself.
MC and Saeyoung escape successfully due to Saeran's plan, and both Rika and the agency don't notice they've left. Following their escape, MC logs into a chatroom with Jumin. MC expresses their sorrow for Saeran, wishing he's safe and sound. After a brief chat, the chatroom ends with Jumin recommending MC to get some rest.
The scene cuts to Jumin's penthouse, where he and Jaehee have secured MC's safety. They discuss dispatching a rescue team to Saeran's last known location, yet it's deemed impossible, as no member on it is willing to affiliated with the prime minister. Frustrated, MC insists on going themselves - much to Jumin's disapproval. Mr. Kim suggests that he go survey the location with MC, with Jaehee suggesting the use of Jumin's personal helicopter. Despite the low chances of finding Saeran, Jumin hesitantly agrees for MC to go. He requests that Mr. Kim keep her safe, and camera kits/recording devices be taken with them. The pair then leave.
We shift to Zen's house, where he and Yoosung are watching a video on MeTube. The speaker in the video points out suspicious things in Saeyoung's news report, such as his awkward movements and visible makeup - possibly hiding the fact he hasn't slept in days. The speaker also points out that a week after Saeyoung was kidnapped, the prosecution suddenly called off the warrant for the prime minister's arrest. He finds it disturbing. As the two of them watch the video, Yoosung expresses his frustration and disgust at the agency, and wishes that more people believe the video. Zen attempts to calm him down, saying the two of them should hope for the best, and believe in Saeran and MC.
In a chatroom, Vanderwood talks to MC. MC asks if he is going to join RFA, to which he replies sarcastically. Zen joins, and Vanderwood asks him how Yoosung is doing. Though Zen doesn't fully trust Vanderwood yet, he asks him how things are going with Saeyoung. Vanderwood reveals that Saeyoung has woken up thanks to the antidote, and since then, has been "hacking like crazy". The agency and both Rika and V still have no clue he escaped. Worried about Saeran, MC hopes that he is safe. In response, Vanderwood expresses the difficulty in trying to save him before sunrise. The prime minister's agents are everywhere, and no one seems to help due to the nature of the mission. However, he reveals Saeyoung has a way, though it requires a miracle. First, he will render the agency's system unusable. Then while the agency freaks out, they'll be busy trying to recover the system and unable to comply to the prime minister's demands. Hopefully by then, the prime minister will forget about Saeran, and both him and "the psychotic couple" will go into hiding. Though Zen and MC are wary about this idea, they have no other scenarios left. Angry at Vanderwood for being pessimistic, Zen yells at him, making Vanderwood leave. The chatroom ends with Zen and MC hoping for a miracle.
After sending Mr. Kim and MC in his helicopter, Jumin finds Jaehee praying at a church. To her surprise, Jumin joins her. He sits down and prays for Saeran to return safely, for reunion and love, and peace for a family. Jaehee replies that she didn't expect him to pray, and if he used to attend church with his father. Jumin proceeds to say it is now history, and that now Mr. Kim is on his way to the scene. All they can do is hope for a miracle. Still reflecting, Jumin imagined himself losing everything once he left C&R. Though he'd imagined himself to be tormented, he feels pacified. Through Saeran and MC, Jumin was taught that love and joy are what make a life, and they are the greatest driving force in it. Because of this, he has come to understand his father. Finally, Jumin wishes that God give Saeran more time before death finds him, and for him to find joy as long as he can. His prayer closes, and both he and Jaehee hope for Saeran to come back safely.
The next morning, MC is surprised to see Saeyoung back in the chatroom. They ask if he has any news on Saeran, to which Saeyoung replies he thought MC would have some. Being so busy, Saeyoung apologizes for not logging into the chatroom earlier, and that he was asleep for so long. MC reminds Saeyoung and the rest of RFA to take care of themselves. Thanking MC, Saeyoung decides he won't let Saeran's sacrifice go to waste. He says he feels that Saeran is safe. Saeyoung tells MC that Saeran loves them, and hopes that they will smile for him. After telling MC to cheer up, Saeyoung leaves to work.
The scene shifts to Saejoong Choi and the agency boss chatting about the twins. The boss declares their plan a success, and now, Saejoong is free to use them as a campaign to his presidency. He will use the twins to show voters how compassionate he is, giving them food, clothes, and housing. Suddenly an agent interrupts their discussion. He says that all of their servers are down, including security, development, and backup. The boss doesn't believe any of this at first, until another agent comes in, reporting that agent 707 has gone missing. Outraged, Saejoong questions what's happening.
In the background, Vanderwood is seen in utter disbelief that Saeyoung managed to take down the agency's servers. Saeyoung however, says that he didn't - he just made them think their servers are gone by using some images. Vanderwood compliments him, and the two hope that it would be enough to freak out the agency, and break the deal off with Saejoong. Next, Saeyoung decides he must hack the satellite and create a report on a wildfire so a rescue team will be dispatched. Confused, Vanderwood says there's no time to do that. The agency must be destroyed first, otherwise Saeran may be kidnapped again. If they don't do it, it will be a death sentence for him. Saeyoung replies, saying to never say Saeran's name with "death" in the same sentence. Jaehee checks in, asking if the two need any help. Vanderwood replies that it's fine, and all Saeyoung needs is himself to be concentrated. The scene ends with them getting back to work. As long as Rika, V, and Saejoong leave Saeran alone, they will be able to save him after the agency is down.
Meanwhile, Mr. Kim and MC finally arrive at the scene. MC wishes to return to the place they last were with Saeran, but Mr. Kim asks her to wait as he calls Jumin. As Mr. Kim speaks to Jumin, V suddenly appears. He asks MC why they came back. Responding to him, MC asks where Saeran is. Understanding that MC is worried about Saeran, V asks them to come and talk to Rika. Driver Kim requests the two of them leave V, stating it's too dangerous to go with him, and the security may catch them. V reveals that the agency has called off the security in the area hours ago, and with that, MC follows him.
In the final chatroom, MC sees Yoosung logged in. Yoosung says that he received information from Jumin, and that MC has went with Mr. Kim. Obviously saddened by the current events, he asks if one day, he will be able to find someone to love with all his heart - a dreamlike relationship like the one MC and Saeran have. Suddenly, Jumin logs in, concerned about MC's whereabouts. Yoosung again asks his question, only interrupted by Jaehee logging in. They carry their conversation, with Zen joining as well. All of them answer Yoosung's question in their own profound way, and reflect on their own perspectives of life. After sharing such a deep conversation, Jaehee and Jumin leave for a conference. Zen and Yoosung leave for lunch, with them wishing both MC and Saeran well.
Following V back to his home, MC sees Rika, glad to talk to them. Before the two set out to find Saeran, Rika tells MC how happy she is to see them one last time, and wishes to tell MC something. Rika thanks them for watching Saeran, finding RFA, and finding her. She continues to say that without them, she would have stayed in the dark for the rest of her life. Finally, she decides to make a confession. Rika admits to torturing and controlling people she coerced, doing so since she thought it was the only way of protecting herself. She thanks MC for not giving up on her for being "ignorant and evil", and giving her a chance. It's revealed that because Rika cannot be like MC, she became jealous - finding their innocence warm. Before Rika can finish the rest of her speech, she breaks down crying in MC's arms, begging for forgiveness. MC comforts her, and says that now, she will change. The two of them leave V's home to find Saeran together.
At Zen's home, a television report is broadcast. Both Zen and Yoosung are watching. It's announced that Jumin will be running for a government position, much to Zen and Yoosung's encouragement. Jaehee and Jumin are broadcast as well, with Jumin expressing his interest in "instant coffee". The news report continues, talking about Jumin's future plans. He will found a new company named after Elizabeth the 3rd, and Jaehee will become the lead of management in his campaign. Interestingly, Jumin appoints Yoosung as representative of undergraduates, and Zen as part of the advertisement team. Jumin states the RFA is an inseparable part of his legacy.
We shift to a scene with Saeran. As he wakes up, we find he is in the presence of Saejoong Choi. Saejoong curses Rika and V at their apparent betrayal and loss of Saeyoung, and starts to taunt Saeran. He calls him weak and pathetic before starting to beat him. He insults him with his past, reminding him of his past abuse. Despite this, Saeran manages to laugh, and thanks Saeyoung that he managed to live this long. Outraged, Saejoong continues to beat Saeran, demanding him of Saeyoung's whereabouts. Saeran refuses to answer, only angering him further. With Saeran nearly beaten to death, an assistant tells Saejoong to stop. He agrees, thinking that even still, Saeran can still be useful. Though seriously injured, Saeran manages to ask Saejoong if he feels better after taking his anger out on him, and even so, still forgives him for it. He then collapses while calling out for MC. He recalls his love for her, and the screen fades to white.

In what appears to be a dream, MC hears Saeran calling out, wishing he could stay and be happy with them. He wishes to see them one last time, and once his selfishness melts away, his pure love will be there for them. Meanwhile MC, Rika, and V try and find Saeran where he was last seen. They are just about to leave, when MC insists that Saeran is nearby. The three of them search for a little longer, and they spot Saeran heavily injured and dragged away by Saejoong. Despite driver Kim's and V's concerns over her safety, Rika urges them to let MC go and see Saeran.
MC holds Saeran in their arms, as he fades in and out of consciousness. Though injured and weak, he manages to tell the MC he loves them, and now that they have come to save him, he can't die. Unfortunately, he loses consciousness soon after. Upon seeing this, Saejoong says he will blame everything on MC if something happens to Saeran. He asks his men to take a picture of them, using it as blackmail for Saeyoung. After making use of him, Saejoong plans to get rid of them both.
Now, MC faces Saejoong, stating that he must be doing all of this due to him being lonely. MC mentions that no matter how much Saejoong actually accomplishes in his life, he will forever feel lonely and painful deep inside. Impressed MC is unafraid to talk to him this way, Saejoong urges them to keep talking, seemingly amused by their speech. MC continues, stating he must have had a hard past which is why he opts for cruelty. Saejoong brushes this aside, saying that MC is too innocent. According to him, "you can get what you want only when you're cruel". MC attempts to get through to him, yet it seems to be no use. As Saeran's condition worsens, MC realizes they must get him to a hospital. However, Saeran decides to use his remaining strength to do one last thing.
Calling him "father", Saeran embraces Saejoong, much to his shock. Though bodyguards around him try and intervene, Saejoong relents. Saeran expresses pity for his father, stating there must have been no one to understand him. He then collapses and is rushed to hospital.
Briefly, Jumin enters a chatroom, outlining a report from driver Kim. He says that Saeran is seriously injured, and Saejoong Choi managed to escape.
Three days later at the hospital, Saeyoung is there by Saeran's bedside pleading for him to wake up. A television broadcast plays, announcing that the former C&R director Jumin Han is now getting into politics. Surprisingly, he already has thousands of potential voters. Also, most of the claims against RFA were proved to be false, including the video of Saeyoung. Talking to MC, Saeyoung expresses the fact he will never forgive his father for what he's done, even if Saeran had. He says his "list of to-say" for Saeran is getting longer, and once he wakes up, he will be a real brother to him. All that's waiting for them is freedom and happiness. Vanderwood appears, apparently the agency has brought news of Saejoong's whereabouts. The two then leave the hospital room.
After they leave, its revealed that Saeran was awake the whole time. He mentions that in fact, Saejoong is in the room at the moment, and even visited him last night. Much to MC's shock, Saejoong comes out of hiding. He mentions that he could finally see how Saeran and MC attempted to get through to him, and was bewildered by it. He mentions that though he can no longer live a beautiful life, Saeran and MC may get a chance. After saying so, Saejoong leaves, leaving Saeran and MC alone to start their lives together.

As Rika and V go investigate, driver Kim stops MC. He states the dangers of going, saying the men may be armed, and he doesn't allow her to leave. Frustrated, MC calls out to Rika and V to save Saeran.
In response, Rika orders V to call the investigation team while she confronts Saejoong. As she calls their deal off, Saejoong tells her about his new plans. He wants Rika to bring RFA and Jumin to his side, and use them to bring the agency back to its feet. Instead, Rika calls out Saejoong for his greed, controlling others to get whatever he wants. Rika continues, saying that since she found what love truly is, the only thing the twins wanted was to love and be loved. Comparing herself to Saejoong, she says the both of them manipulated the twins, and from now on, she will do all it takes to protect them from people like her and Saejoong.
