Heejin finishes her drawing of Sewon’s, Sun-kyun Lee (“Parasite”, “2036 Apocalypse Earth”), son, Doyoon, inside the butterfly, with a mysterious woman as well.
He asks police detective Jiun, Seo Ji-hye (“Dinner Mate (TV)”, “Crash Landing on You (TV)”), to reopen his sons case, but based on a drawing, she just can’t do it and reminds him they found his sons body and held a funeral.
The police are now looking for Sewon’s colleague Hong Nam, Jae-won Lee (“Mr. Queen (TV)”, “Record of Youth (TV)”), who has vanished but appears to have something to do with it, particularly as the unnamed bad-guy with the dog says it’s frustrating he’s gone missing too.
Sewon shakes the police outside his house and heads to the summer house, the scene of the fire that killed Doyoon. His memories are intermixed with those of Junki Lim’s who came to the house in his absence.
The unnamed bad-guy breaks into Sewon’s home and disconnects the breathing tube to his wife, however, on his way out he receives a text message telling him to stop, get out and don’t leave any evidence. He runs down stairs and reconnects the tube.
His colleague meanwhile heads to Hong Nam’s mothers and, when she won’t tell him where her son his, he knocks her out.
Sewon meanwhile manages to finally see what caused the explosion and it’s Taegu Lee and his colleague once more. They take Doyoon, put an already dead boy in his place, and light the place up.
He heads to his sons final resting place and takes some bone to get a DNA sample as he’s sure it’s not his son that was buried.
The police head to Hong Nam’s mothers house but can’t manage to get the bad guy, who seems to be able to vanish into thin air. As they head to find Nam, Sewon heads to the clinic that was treating his son.
Whilst there not only does he find the butterfly Heejin drew but the doctor begins acting strangely and is messaging a Dr. M. on her computer and things don’t look good for Sewon, but he finds a photograph of a bunch of doctors and recognises more than he should.
As we pass the halfway point of Dr. Brain you can feel the tension rising though Sewon still seems incapable of knowing when he’s in danger, no doubt his cat-like reflexes will help him out next time round.
