Back in the present day, the entire group discusses finding the culprit who killed Chil-seong. Du-sik reveals that the culprit is still among them because Chil-seong’s phone was turned on in the town for a brief time. Then Seok-hui states that it was he who turned the phone on. He further adds that he found Chil-seong’s burner phone at the nearby reservoir.

Seok-hui reveals that he followed the town’s dog Snowball who often visited the reservoir. He suspects that the culprit intentionally let Snowball off his leash so that he can find the phone. The conclusion was reached that there was some important information on the phone which is why the criminal was so desperate to find it.
