The Last Chance

After the events, the counters and the demons understood that the evil spirit did not control the firefighter. He was doing everything of his own will. The evil spirit could take over the firefighter if he commits a murder. So Mun and the team tried to stop Ma Joo Seok from committing a crime while the demons did everything to provoke him. The demons tried killing the firefighter's mother. The counters rushed to the hospital and saved her.

In the meantime, Ma Joo Seok kept wandering around, thinking about his late wife and their unborn child. The demons used this opportunity to provoke the firefighter again. They went to the treatment facility and dragged Park Seong Uk out, showed him to the firefighter through signals, and asked him if he ever wanted to get his revenge.

When Ma Joo Seok saw Park Seong Uk, he could not control his anger. He fell for the trap set by the demons and killed the property dealer. Though So Mun and Do Ha Na tried to stop the firefighter, he attacked them. The firefighter became devilish after killing Park Seong Uk, and the counters helplessly watched him turn into a demon.
