It was a satisfactory ending with the good people happy, the wronged avenged, the bad guy got his death penalty and solitary jail cell. Even Evil JH turned to the bright side and reconciled with PJW. There are some loose threads as mentioned by other posters but no biggie for me.

My only nitpick is the judge appeared to take the side of CMH (last episode) and the only thing which brought CMH down was his love for YH & their son. Sad to think there really is (almost) nothing power and wealth cannot buy (except PJW??)
I would prefer to see CMH brought down with law and justice (and not he giving in due to his family).

The balance is slightly off with a major part of the drama on PJW's suffering and not enough of CMH's pain and judgement.

My most heartbreaking moment was when PJW verbally charged CMH with the murder of Ji Soo - Ji Sung did such a magnificent job delivering the lines and emotions in his eyes.

It was a great entertaining drama and the dinner scene with the ex-cellmates & Optimus was heart warming.

Thanks everyone for this journey. Take care and see your around in KdramaLand.

I never regret asking this thread for a recommendation for this drama. A well-loved drama is always a mixed emotion when it comes to an end. I'm happy that our favored characters in the drama finally received they well deserve happy ending.. *my poor seungkyu :( * but it was also sad at the same time, cos ending means goodbye for my fave drama..

one more thing, that kim seok guy catch my attention a little bit. hahaa, i want to see more of him. maybe, a good person on the other drama. hahaha :D anyway, i'll see u guys on other thread... :)

DRAMA RECAPS

Defendant: Episode 18 (Final)

RYcdHL7.jpg

 

Victory seems within Jung-woo’s grasp, but as always, Min-ho has more tricks up his sleeve than our righteous prosecutor can anticipate, and he’s always willing to play dirty. Has this villain run out of time and allies, or will he be able to slip through the cracks of a corrupt system once again? Jung-woo and his motley crew are determined to prove that this time, Min-ho won’t get to have the last laugh.

 
FINAL EPISODE RECAP 

News breaks about Min-ho’s arrest, and Jung-woo escorts him to the prosecutor’s office. Min-ho mockingly says that if Jung-woo thinks he killed his wife, he must want to kill him. Jung-woo says he constantly wants to kill Min-ho, but Ji-soo wouldn’t want him to, because he’s a prosecutor. Min-ho asks if that’s why Jung-woo lured his wife into exposing his identity, but Jung-woo says he just didn’t want Eun-soo to find out his father is a murderer, which enrages Min-ho. Jung-woo tells him that soon, he won’t have to put on this act anymore. When they arrive at the prosecutor’s office, reporters swarm them, and Min-ho tells one of them to get lost, shocking her. Once he’s taken inside, the reporters question Jung-woo, who says that the truth will come out soon.

Attorney Lee joins Min-ho in the interrogation room, and his client asks if it’s over for him; Jung-woo enters and remarks that he must be nervous. He hands over a file listing the details of the case and leaves them to read it all and decide if Min-ho is done for or not. Jung-woo meets Yeon-hee in a different interrogation room and thanks her for calling him about Min-ho’s escape plan. He knows it wasn’t easy for her to testify to Min-ho’s identity, and asks why she changed her mind. Yeon-hee says that Jung-woo’s words about Eun-soo lingered with her; Min-ho has been a good father, and she can’t bear for her son to find out what kind of person he really is.

Min-ho gripes that Deputy General Jung is nowhere to be found despite all the bribes he took, and tells Attorney Lee to get Joon-hyuk for him instead. Joon-hyuk is in his office, agonizing over the pen he took from Min-ho, which contains a recording of Joon-hyuk promising to find and destroy the knife used to kill Ji-soo. Min-ho tells Joon-hyuk he’ll do anything if he lets him go free, an opportunity the prosecutor can’t afford to miss — can’t he gauge the situation? Joon-hyuk says it’s Min-ho who has misjudged this situation. Cut to Deputy General Jung getting arrested as he blusters about his seniority. Jung-woo says the night guard who was watching Sung-kyu testified that the deputy general told him to leave his post when Sung-kyu was murdered. Now, he’s being investigated for other connections with Chamyung, and investigators have to drag the indignant man out.

Jung-woo tells Joon-hyuk that the deputy general will be punished thanks to the information he passed on. Joon-hyuk asks why Jung-woo isn’t taking him in when he’s arresting everyone else related to this incident. Jung-woo replies, “Because I know you.” Joon-hyuk gives him the Nemo plush toy and confesses that he came to the house the night of Ji-soo’s murder, and that the doorbell Jung-woo heard that night was him. He says he never believed Jung-woo was guilty, but once he erased evidence about his presence that night, he couldn’t turn back. He also admits that he’d been greedy for Jung-woo’s UN position, and Jung-woo takes this in, shocked.

“I knew it was wrong, but all I could think of was covering this up. Even when Ha-yeon called, my first thought was hiding it,” Joon-hyuk says tearfully. He says that if he’d come to his senses earlier, Jung-woo could have reunited with Ha-yeon sooner. (Yeah, no kidding, you worm. Joon-hyuk apologizes and gives Jung-woo the incriminating pen, promising to testify at the trial if Jung-woo needs him to. Jung-woo says he’ll lose his job if he testifies, but Joon-hyuk says it was that very fear that brought him down this path; he’d forgotten why he became a prosecutor in the first place.

As Joon-hyuk walks away, Jung-woo clenches his fists, inadvertently playing the message recorded by the stuffed Nemo he’s holding. Closing his eyes, Jung-woo squeezes the toy over and over so he can keep hearing Ji-soo’s voice. He finally breaks down in tears. “Thank you Joon-hyuk. For letting me hear Ji-soo’s voice again.” Looking tortured, Joon-hyuk leaves. Ugh. I hope you stew in guilt for the rest of your life.

^^^Thanks for sharing the photos of their trip. They all looks cheerful and having fun. 

I'm glad the writer didn't force romance in this drama. I see that at the end, JW did get closer to EH but only as friend and colleague. His daughter is his priority. The real friends to JW are no other than his inmates especially Optimus Shin Cheol-sik. I pitied UKJ character, MH. He will never be a monster if he was treated and raised right. 

Congratulations to the staffs and actors and actresses for the high rating from beginning to end! You guys did a fantastic job and see you again in the next project.
