Since the hostages’ cellphones were taken, Young-min, who was desperate to escape, asks Mi-seon to assist him in taking his smartwatch from his office to call the police. This was because several Mint employees were being told to print the notes by their castor according to Young-falsehoods, min’s Mi-Seon poses as pregnant, and Denver escorted her to another room where, with Anne’s help, she snuck out and took the watch. Berlin decides to punish Young-min by killing his lover Mi-Seon after the smartwatch was found after a few failed attempts to contact the outside world. This is against the Professor’s instructions.

Tokyo makes the decision to assist Denver in hiding Mi-Seon after she was shot in the leg in the underground cellar where they provided first aid.

Due to Berlin’s violence and unpredictable behaviour, Tokyo decides to have him removed from his leadership position. Denver alternated between caring for and feeding Mi-Seon. Meanwhile, Young-min had to contend with his grief over Mi-“death” Seon’s while also facing criticism from the other hostages for letting Mi-Seon die in his place out of selfishness; the North Korean staff even made murder threats against him. Tokyo then requested the assistance of Nairobi and Rio to capture Helsinki and Oslo, and they faced Berlin in the office, where the heist’s participants engaged in a tense confrontation over Berlin’s disobedience. Moscow was shocked and upset to learn that Denver had allegedly killed Mi-Seon during the argument. Unaware of the truth, Moscow impulsively went outside to surrender in his son’s place, ready to take responsibility for Mi-“murder,” Seon’s but Denver was able to catch up with him and stop him by reassuring him that Mi-Seon was still alive.

Moo-hyuk entered the Mint undercover as a nurse with two nurses and a surgeon, but Berlin recognised him and confronted him.
Thus, Moo-hyuk admits that he was an officer of the law ordered to protect the medical personnel. In reality, Moo-hyuk and the medics were merely buying time for an ambush team that was discreetly penetrating the Mint while donning the same clothing and mask as the robbery crew. The Professor is able to decipher this and commands the hostages and heist crew to don a different mask (to set themselves apart from the officers); as a result, Woo-jin instructs the squad to abandon their objective and retreat. For Rio to operate on Mi-seon, who had previously attended medical school, Denver and Tokyo seized the medical materials from the medics. However, Denver stopped Berlin and offered to be shot in place of Mi-Seon, which caused Berlin to realise Denver’s growing feelings for Mi-Seon.

In order to divert attention, Chul-woo and Anne then pretend that a fire is breaking out. Meanwhile, Young-min tried to kill Denver as part of his personal vendetta, but Mi-Seon, who had fallen in love with Denver, stopped him and saved him while revealing Chul’s scheme. woo’s Denver loudly warned her just as Chul-woo was going to shoot Tokyo, shocking Chul-woo, who was then shot by Berlin (who released himself from his binds).

The police believed Chul-woo had been killed after hearing the gunfire on a wiretap. Woo-jin comes up with a strategy to get the public and the media to turn against the robbery team and demand the release of the high school pupils. They even faked a document to make Chul-woo out to be a hostage in order to further their plan, and they convinced Woo-jin to enter with a camera to capture every facet of the hostages still alive in order to reassure their loved ones.
The footage was simultaneously broadcast live to the general public. Berlin collects the hostages and permits Woo-jin to photograph their faces before revealing his true identity as Song Jung-ho. Thus, on live television, Woo-jin (and Anne) informed the audience that Chul-woo was the “hostage.”It came out that the Professor had wiretapped the police and was aware of their strategy; as a result, he supplied news reports with CCTV footage of Chul-conduct.
woo’s Berlin does his part to discredit the police by claiming that they used Chul-woo to jeopardize the hostages’ safety and that they only intended to rescue Anne (as a result of her father’s political background) while leaving the others behind. Berlin further fueled the populace’s ire towards the police and the government by claiming that this shows the robbery team merely sought money and never intended to kill the hostages. Denver had sex with Mi-Seon as the robbery crew was about to wrap up their operation and impliedly bid her farewell.
