SBS’s “The Penthouse 3” is keeping viewers on the edges of their seats with suspenseful ending scenes!
With only two episodes left in the third season of the drama, there were plenty of shocking moments featured at the end of each episode. Here are three ending scenes that proved to be the most thrilling to viewers.
1. Shim Soo Ryun and Logan Lee’s reunion
In episode 8, the reunion between Shim Soo Ryun (Lee Ji Ah) and Logan Lee (Park Eun Suk) was a cause for celebration among viewers while also signaling a counterattack against Cheon Seo Jin (Kim So Yeon) and Joo Dan Tae (Uhm Ki Joon). While Cheon Seo Jin and Logan Lee backed Shim Soo Ryun into a corner and into danger, Logan Lee made an exhilarating appearance as he walked on his own two feet, looking perfectly healthy. His appearance foreshadowed the arrival of justice for the villains, with viewers excited to see him by Shim Soo Ryun’s side once again.
2. Cheon Seo Jin’s reset
After Cheon Seo Jin made Joo Dan Tae into the real culprit of Oh Yoon Hee’s (Eugene‘s) murder case, episode 10 ended with her drinking wine that her daughter Ha Eun Byul (Choi Ye Bin) had spiked with a memory-erasing drug.
Having insisted on getting ready for the party herself, Ha Eun Byul had sent her mother to her room before taking out the memory-erasing drugs, determined to erase all of her mother’s bad memories. Although the drug can cause early-onset dementia, Ha Eun Byul mixed large amounts into her mother’s wine. Right before taking a drink, Cheon Seo Jin declared, “Today is the happiest day in your mother’s life.” As the episode ended, she took a sip with a touched smile, a stark contrast to the impending tragedy.
3. Cheon Seo Jin vs. Ha Yoon Chul
In episode 11, Cheon Seo Jin fell into despair due to her dismissal from her position as Chung Ah Group’s chairwoman as well as the appearance of dementia symptoms caused by the memory-erasing drugs. Mistaking Bae Ro Na (Kim Hyun Soo) for her own daughter and dragging her away, she had a scuffle with Ha Yoon Chul (Yoon Jong Hoon) which resulted in her falling over the banister and towards the floor below.
Ha Yoon Chul was left on the ground with a head injury while Cheon Seo Jin desperately clung with one hand to the chandelier. However, the episode came to a nail-biting end as Cheon Seo Jin fell to the ground with the chandelier on top on her.
4. The collapse of Hera Palace
Episode 12 revealed the most shocking ending of all. Disguised as a janitor, Joo Dan Tae snuck into Hera Palace and planted bombs in the building. While Shim Soo Ryun and Logan Lee’s engagement ceremony was taking place, Joo Dan Tae threatened that he would blow up the entire Hera Palace if Shim Soo Ryun didn’t come to him immediately. Left with no choice, she headed over to Joo Dan Tae while Logan Lee, Kang Ma Ri (Shin Eun Kyung), and the Hera Palace kids evacuated the other residents.
Coming face to face with Joo Dan Tae, Shim Soo Ryun shot him with a gun on each shoulder, causing him to fall to the ground. It seemed like Joo Dan Tae had died, until he suddenly opened his eyes and stabbed Shim Soo Ryun on the leg with a sharp sculpture. From there ensued a tussle for the remote control for the bomb, which ultimately ended up back in Joo Dan Tae’s hands. Shim Soo Ryun shot Joo Dan Tae in the head, causing him to fall below the penthouse and onto the fountain to meet a violent end. But as he fell, he pressed the button on the remote to activate the bombs at Hera Palace. The bombs went off, and Hera Palace collapsed while being engulfed by smoke.
