Muahahahahaha, I can’t believe I’m going to so easily forgive a screenwriter for what this one did to get Vincenzo himself out of a jam to start episode 15 but it’s simultaneously ridiculous and ties back to earlier well laid…..bird feed shall we say. On the cusp of a mafia execution, who comes to Vincenzo’s aide none other than noisy and nosy pigeon friend Inghazi, who has plagued V since episode 1 when he moved into Geumga Plaza and so this whole sequence was clearly mapped for this payoff. And we all watched Birds so if the furry f*&kers can attack as a group innocent people in a New England town then they can attack on command a bunch of mafia assassins to save a very heroic antihero. This episode paused on any romantic breakthroughs and used the time to move other threads forward: seemingly upstanding Prosecutor Jung is as corrupt as them all and maybe even moreso by using Vincenzo to get him the dirt to barter with Joon Woo, Vincenzo hatches another scheme to turn a Babel ally and this one ends up with himself cosplaying a shaman with a callback to his flower boy character Yeo Rim in Sungkyunkwan Scandal, and the biggest reveal of all that Vincenzo has the Guillotine File as he slipped it in his pocket before needing to toss the gold bar back into the vault. Of course Team Babel is ready for yet another advantage flip but it’s all part of the showy game that I know will go until the very end of the drama.
