I'm currently watching this week's episodes but I had just had to take a moment to say how amused I am that DCK keeps offering Jang a stick of gum.  It's like he's giving a dog a doggie treat.  And Jang knows it.  :lol:

WOW!!!

 

Finally watched ep8... Didn't expect YG dad to be killed soo fast. You can see YG had a shock his dad dying in the same house as his mom died 15 years ago. Just only that day his dad cooked breakfast for him. 

Ending of the episode, he visualizing not his dad but Detective Do could be the one killed his mom but I don't think so. One thing could be true, someone did put his dad coat in the washing machine. 

Who is that? We all don't know.

 

Why the Deputy Commissioner did that? Like he wants YG dad and Detective Do to go against one another.  Detective Do said he called him but YG dad said he never received any call and when he left the house, YG was sleeping and his wife was still alive. 

I think Deputy Commissioner may be involved.

 

We still have not gone anywhere to who is the killer who is cutting people's thumb.

 

I can feel the heat as it has come to the half of the episodes of Watcher. OMG! I have to wait for how many days to watch the next episode. I hope I can go through the days waiting... :joy::joy:

Ah! So many thoughts!

LO and I watched 7 last night. (I haven't read anything here because I am trying, for once, to avoid spoilers!).

 

1- We think that there are 2 thumb cutters--the forensics guy kept emphasising there could only be one which feels like a red herring. (one is the cop who was killed the second was his 'successor'.)

2- DC Park is suspicious (still hahaha) because he wants KYG to forgive his dad after 15 years. Amongst all the other reasons

3- DCK and JHR have a great bromance.

4- The gum thing... significant?

5- DCK hiding something in the washing machine... was it something for Dad? or another cop to find?
6- How did Dad hide stuff (gun, knife) and the investigation not find it?

@triplem @titania1000 @thistle @larus Now, I have another theory about the identity of the real villain. What caught my attention is this: image.png

And let us not forget that this drama is entitled "Watcher". So someone is watching people and they are not aware of it. When we saw this picture, image.png we were all thinking that someone among the team was a bad cop, like JHR or even DCK. However, I realized that we were all overlooking one important clue. Actually, there are 6 persons connected to this picture and not just 5. We all forgot the photographer. We have to ask ourselves about his identity. And that was the moment it came to my mind that the real culprit could be the only person we have never seen before and was present all this time: The "boyfriend" and "Money lover"Watcher episode 3.png. This person could be the same person. Both have something in common, he has no name... just like watcher. It was as if he had no real identity. However, our thumb killer is actually obsessed with money and identity. Remember that he keeps asking where the humanity comes from. And he cuts the thumb... We heard from PSY that he changed after this traumatic incident. It was as if he had lost his identity and humanity. And if you pay attention to these two takings above, you'll notice one common denominator: both are using the thumb. We even heard from deputy commissioner Park that the phone can now recognize prints... the thumb.

 

Sure, the killer is not working alone. He has accomplices but the thumb killer is not a real serial murderer. If he was, he would kill more often. We heard that he killed important people who were replaced by relatives and the latter had to follow his orders. Actually, in the second case, we had a similar situation. Through the planned death of the CEO Shin, the highers-up wanted to have access to Shin's fortune. So in reality, the killer is more interested in gaining power and money than anything else. I have the impression that his "delusion" comes from the fact that he was never acknowledged by his colleagues, hence he decided to compensate this, he thought that having power and money would help him to get recognized. He started using people as pawns so that he could destroy the team he felt excluded. He could be the one who always had to help in the background, sitting behind a desk for example. Remember that PSY claims that the moment the suspicion starts, there is no end and it will get bigger and bigger. We saw in the last episode how HJM and DCK were convinced that each other was the traitor. I have the impression that the thumb killer resented the team and made sure to turn the detectives against each other. JHR might think that he won't be touched as long as he helps the thumb killer, however I am quite sure that he will become a target at some point as Jang, PSY and HJM became his victims and right now, DCK is in a terrible situation where all his colleagues will suspect him.

 

Money Lover has access to info and CCTV very quickly and he could be the one who can delete and even change the recorded videos. 

 

Let me know what you think...

We saw DCK put something in the washing machine (I think that it was in the first episode) before he discovered little boy YG hiding behind the shower curtain.

Somehow I ignored this Major Clue that was staring us all in the face!  Good question!  Who is watching and why?

The drama Healer taught us to remember that it is not only the people in the picture but also that there is someone behind the camera!

I still think that SY is probably a plant, and that the person who planted her is Yeom (I think that's her name--powerful lady cop) so Yeom would be the "boyfriend" on SY's phone.  It's obvious that she is neither a boy nor a friend but sometimes the biggest clues are the ones we don't even notice (like the title of this show, as you pointed out) so hiding Yeom's identity in a way that no one would question makes sense (no one but Jae Sik, of course--he always knows more than he lets on).

 

It has always been very suspicious how easily SY gets information that she should not have access to (like those identity files from forensics) and how much she knows but while no one knows much about her.  The team all accepts her presence too easily and they are too comfortable with her because she seems no threat.  

 

Although I have come to think that possibly Yeom and SY are not bad guys, it seems fair to guess that they are running things in the background to make Investigations do what they want them to do.  It's like Yeom is a puppetmaster and the only way she can keep power is to retain her invisibility while she pulls strings in the background and maybe stands behind a camera.

 

But I'm not sure that boyfriend and Money Lover are one and the same.  Money Lover is likely someone else, and maybe he/she is the Big Bad.

 

I've just had the most horrid thought:  what if Jae Sik is also a plant?  Not from the good guys but from the bad guys.  I really don't want this to be true because he's my favorite character because he is amusing.  But nothing is completely clear on this drama and anyone could be bad.

This is a really good theory.  And it makes me wonder once again about people who might be hiding in plain sight.  I wish I was better at remembering Korean names but they confuse me every time (I just do Not have an "ear" for Korean--so frustrating) but anyway--the cop whose thumb was cut off and re-attached (like Lawyer Han).  What if he could be the Unacknowledged One who is after money and power?  Could he have cut off his own thumb to divert suspicion from himself?  Creepy!

 

The one thing that we know is true:  Everyone has to be a suspect until someone is proven guilty.

@thistle Yeom and DC Park want both the ledger as they are both about to retire... so in my opinion, both want to get their hands on it in order to get rich and powerful, the moment they retire. However, HJM didn't give the ledger to Park and to Yeom. Furthermore, he was killed before hence I am wondering if the thumb killer wants the ledger to remain hidden as it could represent a thread to him and his power. For me, PSY can not be the thumb killer as he was used many times by the killer. He tricked him to believe that DCK would be blamed for all the murders. The killer knew that HTJ would play a trick on him. In my opinion, the killer can track the cellphones and even listen to their conversations. That's why he is a watcher. Notice that the criminal Kim (organ trafficking) was killed just after GY had told DCK about their plan: let Kim free so that the latter would trust them after realising that he had been backstabbed.

So I was really, really bad and watched 8 without LO...

 

@bebebisous33--I don't think the killer is Money Lover(who I think we learnt early on is a woman? I might be crazy but I've always thought that ML is a woman)... I think ML is the Commissioner who is HTJ's friend from the academy (they seem to be about the same age and I expect that two women would bond in a predominantly male environment). Still power hungry and money mad but not the killer... she also has a huge network to find all the info that HTJ needs. (I do think that the Commissioner with throw everyone, their mother, and the the neighbourhood halmoni under the bus if it suits her.)

HTJ... what a babe. She would have made a formidable police woman... but I'm glad she is our lawyer. That bit of her back story explains a lot... especially the idea that thumb-killer doesn't kill cops, just cuts off their thumbs. So if he knew her when she was at the academy it would explain a lot. 

 

I 100% agree/believe that the person who took the photograph is the killer. ... More evidence that DC Park is the bad guy (imo) is that when he was talking to Dad about how he took his coffee he said that Dad was always the hotshot and now look how their roles are reversed. ... If he was the least successful/least amount of star power in the team he would be the one taking the photograph of the 'dream team'... he also talked about how much the phone he bought was expensive when he got it... a weird thing to say I thought.

I am also starting to think that 'Boyfriend' is actually just a male friend of JSY... also, am I going crazy but KYG's mom's family name is also Jo... is that too much of a coincidence? Or are they somehow related? Because otherwise she is just an incredibly loose thread. I wonder if we will find out more of her back story going forward... everyone else is tied in so why not her?

 

DAD!!! :tears: Urgh. Wow. Also by far the most brutal of all the murders. So far thumb-killer has either garrotted or smothered the people he killed so Dad's death was... unexpected which makes me think that Dad put up a fight and that the thumb was cut off while it was dying in the bath (but not post mortem). 

Fairly certain that DCK saw something when he was knocked out but won't tell us (yet) because he knows how suspicious it will look... I fear that he planted evidence that Dad was the killer of Mom because DC Park told him to... or because he thought it could be washed and therefore absolve dad? ... I don't know!!! :tears:

(If you don't hear from me next week it is because LO has changed all the passwords to prevent me from watching ahead of him... this is a total joke but shhh...)

I really like this: that's a very insightful glimpse in the killer's mind.

This description for me fits JHR the most: he's very ambitious and attached to his own image. I can easily imagine how he could have felt small inside this groupe where KJM was shining with his charisma and his natural ability to adapt and blend with his environment while DCK was the ace who was making the deductions.

For me, either JHR is being used by director Park who is desperate to hide his corruption before retiring and he's the thumb killer.

Or he's the mastermind and he uses someone else to do the job. I still don't believe PSY and think he could have lied about his involvement: he suggested clearly though in a indirect words to DCK to dig the place where the bodies were buried. I'm pretty sure that hiding  the body of OSD's wife wasn't his first experience.

 

For me, the more terrible thing about DCK  is not only that everyone is against him, even his team but he's himself against himself.

The fake evidences that he made that day in the flat  helped condemned an innocent man, who spent 15 years in prison separated from his son (it was confirmed by HTJ that she used the blood stained jacket and KYG's testimony during the investigation). 

 Even if he didn't kill KMJ, when the  fake evidences will start to accumulate (because the killer is good at this game) and that he will start to collapse under the weight of the distrust and hate he was going to get (which is ironically exactly what he did to KMJ, so he's punished the same way he used for his sin),  part of him will want to submit and  accept what's happening as a fair punishment for his past betrayal. While the other part will still want to save people and stop the killer, and the only way is to prove his own innocence.

And this conflict will be the worst thing possible for someone with his ethics.

 If my memory is good, it's indeed a woman like @tinymel said, the young women that HTJ tried to save from the organ traffic but who betrayed her.

She was arrested so i don't think this nickname has reappared since that episode. Though i need to check it.

@titania1000 Money Lover can not be the woman involved in the organ trafficking, the supposed wife of the CEO Shin. Money Lover is a different person. Even if Money Lover is a woman, this doesn't really change my theory that the killer could have been working next to DCK and HJM. Don't you find it strange that YDS mentioned to HJM how she met him at a lecture and the ex-cop couldn't recall the grade he gave her? She wanted to know if he remembered her but he couldn't... Notice that YSD knows DCK pretty well.

I had written this theory earlier that "boyfriend" could be a woman in reality...and this name was used in order to mislead her colleagues.

 

For me, HJR is not the main villain, rather an accomplice.  

 

@2handsintertwined For me, this is a good drama. A rather dark crime drama with no romance...

I promise never to tell.  ;) :lol:

 

 

..................and I'm watching my way through episode 8 slowly because I keep having this sense of dread.  Yeah, that is partly because I know YG's dad is doomed to die.  But it's also because there seem to be small clues tucked in amongst the other stuff; some of them are subtle, some are not.  All interesting.

 

Not subtle:  Park and Yeom both want to get their hands on the ledger and trying to cut one another out of the process.  And just exactly HOW did Yeom know that YGDad was in Park's office?  Either she has spies or she has the place bugged or both. 

 

Also not subtle:  the snarks between Yeom and YGDad.  He did not ever wanna touch her hand.  She forces him with the picture-taking.  And then there was that chat about when she was his student.  There was a lot behind that and we just don't know what it was.

 

Interesting that YGDad insisted on using Jae Sik's phone and referred to him as "that trustworthy friend" which sounded ironic.  We've now got Jang checking up on Jae Sik's background.  I'm getting more worried for our bodyguard (I still 990% trust him).

 

Subtle or not?  When Lawyer Han was in the Investigations office with DCK, the camera panned across SY's desk.  There were two pictures on it:  one was of her but the other one was hidden partly behind the plastic figure in front of it.  Looked like maybe a guy in a fancy police cap.  Who?  And is there any meaning to those 4 plastic figures?  

 

Anyway, that's just about as far as I've gotten (well, I did get past the part where the nosy security guard is trying to pump YG for information).....I know that the rest cannot go well.  Oh my.  Looks like I'll be taking the rest of this episode a few minutes at a time, maybe with the volume off.  I can't deal with stress-y stuff, and this episode is stress-y.  :unsure:  But I really wouldn't miss it watching it!  This drama is really good.

I don't know one network from another but I will say that Doctor John is also a very, very good drama (see my comment above).  I can't stop thinking about that one either.  And I think that it is very much worth recommending.

Yes, I thought that was very strange... especially since he *clearly* remembered HTJ from the academy--and that there was something going on with her family... she dropped out but was there something in her background?

 

as for Money Lover... I had a look and the name is saved as 돈벌레 ... which literally means "moneyworm", the name for a kind of centipede in Korea. If you google "돈벌레" you can see what they look like... It is an interesting imagery... perhaps not super relevant to any theories but I was curious to see if I could pinpoint why I think ML is a woman but didn't have luck, instead came back with this... I'd be lucky to get a C+ for a grade! :P
 

So very curious to see how our various "watchers" will start to reveal themselves going forward!

Not at all. You are right that we met on different threads before. I like romance too but I like crime drama as well where you have to pay attention to details in order to discover the identity of the culprit. So far, the mystery is not resolved at all that's why it is so entertaining.

oh man. if you're into this line of dramas then yes. there was life on mars which is a procedural (and a british original) then there's save me 1 and 2. save me 2 just ended and i loooved it, probs more than s1 (which is where my icon is from!!), but they're both phenomenal. very very very different in tone and two different ways of manifesting but both about cults...

 

then there's trap which is part of the dramatic cinema series (next up will be hell is other people.) there's a mixed reaction to this and the ending is a bit ridiculous but honestly i loved every minute of it. it's INSANE. very grisly and dark and fun tbh.

 

now on to watcher:

all the theories are really interesting. one thing i think we need to remember is that there is no i guess perfect person. this show is constantly making us ask what a "criminal" is and who can watch and who watches the watcher. we're on a wild goose chase but it may be way easier than we think. after all by the end of these really convoluted affairs there's always the simplest culprits...

After reading everyone's insightful deductions, here are my two most probable suspects:

 

(1) Yeom Dong Sook

I have the impression that his "delusion" comes from the fact that he was never acknowledged by his colleagues, hence he decided to compensate this, he thought that having power and money would help him to get recognized. He started using people as pawns so that he could destroy the team he felt excluded. He could be the one who always had to help in the background, sitting behind a desk for example.

 

bebebisous33's profiling of the mastermind killer fits Yeom very well.  Although she's climbed up the ladder successfully and has become the commissioner.  I bet she wasn't well recognized before.  This is why she's still very mindful of KJM's impression of her.

Don't you find it strange that YDS mentioned to HJM how she met him at a lecture and the ex-cop couldn't recall the grade he gave her? She wanted to know if he remembered her but he couldn't...

 

I think the fact that KJM gave her a C+ score in crime scene investigation course must have struck her badly.  She believes she's much smarter than everyone yet when people did not recognize this she began to have these twisted convoluted schemes and became the vigilante killing off bad guys that even the best detectives and prosecutors failed to catch.  She must have somehow gathered a group of minions who help her execute the killings. 

 

(2) The camera man/woman

I can easily imagine how he could have felt small inside this groupe where KJM was shining with his charisma and his natural ability to adapt and blend with his environment while DCK was the ace who was making the deductions. 

 

I think this fits the camera man/woman's profile very well.  S/he feels small when s/he's in front of this group of star detectives.  This person became the silent "watcher" and found way to defeat them.  He began scheming evil plans and somehow Jang Hyung Koo, the missing police now found dead, noticed something strange.  JHK became his/her first victim.  Since then s/he became the vigilante killing off bad guys that the legal system fails to catch.

 

If the camera man is a guy, he could very well be the "Boyfriend".  If this person is a she, can she be Yeom Dong Sook the commissioner?

 

[EDIT] Actually i want to correct myself.  The camera man/woman can be the "Boyfriend" (who can either be a man or a woman) or Yeom.
