In the previous episode, both Kang-Gon and So-Young think that the two murder cases are related and done by the same person. So-Young’s theory is that the killer is becoming bolder and will continue to kill. While Kang-Gon thinks that supernatural powers are involved. He finally gets face to face with the supernatural killer (although he was not able to see the killer’s face) while chasing Dae-Soo. Dae-Soo is put into a vegetative state by Se-Hwang (using an item) and he then does same to Kang-Gon’s niece. Kang-Gon notices the same mark on the hands of both his niece and Dae-Soo.
ITEM Episode 4 Recap
The Tattoo of Coma
Kang-Gon notices the same tattoo as Dae-Soo on Da-In’s arm as well, he is sure it is done by the same person. To get more clues he searches Dae-Soo’s house, he sees a family portrait and gets another vision/flashback. He informs to So-Young that the same tattoo was put on kids arms who went to the amusement park from the photo. He further reveals that 15 years ago a janitor started the fire in the amusement park which led to many casualties. Kang-Gon then goes to look for the guy who had fought with Dae-Soo a few days earlier (episode 2). He is informed that the guy is in a coma as well after being hot on his head by someone (most likely by Dae-Soo). Elsewhere, Se-Hwang is scaring the crap out of his driver who is on his knees begging for mercy, he is fired in the end (could have been worse).
The Burning Book
Koo-Cheol is waiting for his daughter in front of the building, he seems to be worried about Da-In and Kan-Gon. When So-Young starts talking about the amusement park, Koo-Cheol gets surprised and in a flashback, we see he found a “book” in the items related to the amusement park fire case. Both of them goes to Kang-Gon’s house in hope to find some clues. So-Young goes into the closet and imagines what Da-In saw and went through. Koo-Cheol goes to see Kang-Gon in the hospital, he sees the tattoo on Da-In’s arm. He remembers it is exactly the same as on the book that he found during the amusement park case. Kang-Gon asks him about his opinion on the case. Koo-Cheol tells that in his opinion Da-In was not the target and the criminal was looking for something else.
