East of Eden finally wrapped up the whole episode of 56 on the 10th. Dong-wook (Yeon Jeong Hun) realized what his real father did to him. He set a trap to put his brother and Jackie in prison and he used his real son to take these two competitors down. He got furious and told him in front that he would take him down himself.
It was not a happy ending for Dong-chul (Song Seng-heon). He was captured by his brother Dong-wook and held on a prison but he escaped later to save Young-ran (Lee Yeon Hee) because he couldn’t just let her got hurt by the kidnappers. He didn’t really have a great plan like Mike Scofield from Prison Break but he escaped from it and tried to save her life.
He of course got beat up by Jackie’s and it looked like they both would die there. Dong-wook showed up. He even came in without arm to save them both. Dong-chul was impressed by his act and got a bullet for him. I learned that another lessen here. If you don’t know how to save others, just pray at home. He died in his beloved brother and Young-ran’s hands. It was a sad ending for for him because he died too young and didn’t have chance to make any final move on Shin Tae-whan (Cho Min Ghi). So many viewers including me wanted to see him kicking some butts.
Rebecca (Miae, Shin Eun Jeong) put some hands on Shin Tae-whan instead. She suddenly showed up for final event and put some ropes around him and sat together with Tae-whan. He thought she was going to kill him and yelled at her that he was Shin Tae-whan, the immortal. No one could put him down. Her reaction was so calm like nothing was important any more. She acted like she was the real person who already decided to kill herself. His all the yelling made her decision affirmed. She stepped on her car and dove into a shallow river. It showed that the evil would get punished with anyone even another evil.
The main event in the final episode was the above and I wasn’t really moved by it. It looked somewhat awkward ending that didn’t wrap up the whole story, I think. I guess I expected too much from it. However I thought about it would definitely have a great ending hidden that would be as good as the first parts of the show that had lots of action scenes and interesting plots from beginning.
Anyway, it was done and I hope to find a better one soon.
