But at least you can rest assured that our hero remains true to his admirable and honorable self, going beyond the call of duty when it comes to reconciliation and forgiveness. Ratings-wise, Prime Minister and I finished off its last week with a 4. Adobe Flash Player version 9 or above is required to play this audio clip.
Da-jung and Yul end up at the hospital to pay a visit to her father, whom they find presumably still asleep. The doctor says Dad went into shock, but thankfully is in stable condition now. Yul insists on staying with Da-jung, adding that the kids are being taken care of. He assures her that everything will be fine. Then Na-young asks Madam Na what she should do if her son hates her, an idea Madam Na finds ridiculous, and then wonders if Woo-ri knows the whole truth including the affair.
Da-jung sees Yul off in the morning and genuinely thanks him. Are… things okay between you two now? Is it too soon? His memory is intact today, but he knows that with his dementia and brain tumor, his days are numbered.
So he asks his daughter for his journal so he can write down his memories. Da-jung rifles through her bag for a pen and finds the present from the kids—a wing necklace. Curiosity gets the best of him, however, and he reels in shock at the last few entries. Another confrontation takes place elsewhere as Na-young accuses Yul for telling their son everything while dangling the carrot of letting her see their children in front of her eyes.
Why else would Woo-ri be so cold to her? Na-young apologizes for overreacting but before she leaves, Yul says he has one important thing to tell her: He writes a letter to Da-jung in her diary later that night.
But he has more urgent matters to attend to when Na-young rushes out with news that Su-ho recognizes her. Su-ho blinks in response.
Dad fawns over Da-jung out on the roof, smiling at how his pretty daughter needs to get married to a good and considerate man. Oh no no no no, is he dead? This is how Yul finds her, arriving a minute too late.
Sometime later, Yul pays his respects to Dad, uttering the only words he can muster: Na-young walks towards her son hesitantly, and then mother and son share a tearful embrace. He takes back his words about Na-young being accepted back into the family, and asks if Yul would accept his apology for his wrongdoings.
Yul asks jokingly if Joon-ki would be able to if he thought about everything he did. Before Joon-ki leaves, Yul gives one last piece of advice, telling Joon-ki not to let the person by his side grow lonely. The Scandal News Team converse about recent events, wondering what will happen to Da-jung once her husband is unemployed. He considers it a miraculous present from her father, words that warm her heart. Later that evening, Yul returns to the estate to spend his final night there.
Not to far off, In-ho runs into Hye-joo, who has resigned from her position to carve out her own path. At the dining table Da-jung interviews Yul on how he feels about his final night at the estate. Yul bids goodbye to the ministers and his staffers the following morning as he leaves the estate for the last time. He casts one final look back before he climbs into the car.
Elsewhere, Joon-ki and Yul watch their children playing together with a smile. At least things have changed for the better between Joon-ki and his own wife because they now have a second child.
She looks up… and sees a copy of her book already tucked inside the glass case, and then smiles in realization. Then In-ho walks away with a knowing smirk. Da-jung formally introduces herself and requests an interview with the presidential candidate for her upcoming book entitled—wait for it—Prime Minister and I.
I thought I was done with the drama-to-book title meta references! Yul asks who the protagonist is, and she says both characters are. When he asks how long the interview will take, she asks teasingly if he plans on only giving her ten minutes of his time.
