tvN drama Vincenzo continues to surprise me and episode 13 was no different. When I thought President Cho had betrayed Vincenzo (noooooo!) it turns out to be more complicated and more genuine the connection between the two. Both have secrets upon secrets and yet need each other. I’m glad he’s a more layered character now than just Vincenzo’s right hand man looking for a payout. The Guillotine File is now front and center and even Babel gets in on the race to find it. While the Geumga Plaza residents annoy me still when they get in the way (i.e. the turnaround from their trip to interrupt Vincenzo), I know it’s needed for the narrative to twist and turn and ultimately I know they will serve better purpose in the long run and I’m patient to see it play out. For now Manger Nam and Agent An are still my faves and their duo undercover role at the end of the episode was the bromance I need more of. Vincenzo really took a gold bar to the proverbial foot at the beginning of the episode but he’s still focused on taking down Babel which played out like a text book mafia shakedown and surprise with a Korean flavor twist. I know some folks want more romantic development with him and Cha Young but I just love their characters and the friendship means more to me because he doesn’t have any in Korea and she’s re-discovering her purpose alongside him. Joon Woo took a giant step backward in this episode and the ending moment borrowed a page out of Carrie but sadly I couldn’t enjoy it as much because I’m worried about the payback he’ll on our protagonists who I love so much.
