Na Hye-won (Hong Su-zu) gets kidnapped by Mo Gi-jun and finds herself in a mental asylum, chained to the bed. In-ah confronts her for her transgressions and she does not show any remorse. He says that he feels betrayed by her and by double-crossing him, she has made a grave mistake. He gives her one option – to be his person like Han Tae-oh was. 

In the next scene, we see Hui-ju who asks the legal team to find Tae-oh for her. Later, they call her and tell her that there is something wrong with the Chairman’s office as nobody is allowed to enter it and only the Hospital director is seen entering and leaving – making them think that Tae-oh is in his office. Hui-ju goes to talk to her father but she finds him floating in the bathtub, not breathing, and the broken wineglass around him. Shocked at the scene in front of her, she forgets about Tae-oh and goes to save him.

We move to the present as the Kangoh family gathers at the hospital. Thanks to Hui-ju’s quick actions, they were able to save him but since he didn’t take his medicine at the golden hour, they must wait for him to wake up. In-ah finds out that his father is still alive and he begins sweating bullets.

Tae-oh finds Prosecutor Ha Myung-jin and tells him that he isn’t the culprit and that the real culprit has been recorded in Bo-na’s phone. Tired of his shenanigans, he arrests Tae-oh and cuffs him to his car. Determined to make his point, he brings Myung-jin to his side who finds the phone as well as the videos. He shows them to Tae-oh who sees that the murderer is Mo Gi-jun but there is another person at the scene – In-ah.

With the help of the Chairman’s trusted lawyer, Tae-oh is found not guilty of all his crimes and he is let go from jail. The episode comes to an end as a frustrated In-ah comes into the hospital room of his father. Convinced that he will be thrown out if his father wakes up, In-ah justifies his reason to try and murder the Chairman again. But his plan is foiled as he is confronted by his friend-turned-enemy, Tae-oh.

The episode begins with Tae-oh entering the Chairman’s VIP suite at the hospital. Feeling emotional at seeing him lifeless, he gains the courage to go ahead with his plan. Later, In-ah walks in to kill the Chairman but his plans get foiled by Tae-oh. Shocked at seeing each other, the two go out to talk.

When Tae-oh walks away from him, In-ah makes a call to Gi-jun. He asks him if the plan remains the same and if he can trust him. Gi-jun expresses his loyalty to In-ah but tells him that he feels scared of getting the death sentence. Hearing that, makes In-ah feel like he cannot trust him and get him killed in the prison itself.  

On the other hand, Tae-oh begins his mission with Gold H Investment and we are taken back to a conversation between him and the Chairman, where he tells him about the paper company.

In a heartbreaking scene, Tae-oh goes to identify his dead mother. Looking at her lifeless body, he thinks of all the times he missed having a conversation with her, especially the last time when she came to meet him at the prison but he refused to talk to her. Lee Jae-wook’s performance in this scene takes us back and we feel the pain of Tae-oh. 

At the funeral, Sung-ju comes to pay his respects. He tells him that they both lost their mothers and there is only one person responsible for it.

The Impossible Heir Episode 11 Review

Being the penultimate episode, we got a lot of drama, betrayal, smug faces, and revenge plans. In-ah and Tae-oh’s relationship spirals into a ‘tit-for-tat’ situation where each one goes to the depths of hell to make their point known (more so for In-ah). While Tae-oh still has a soft spot for In-ah, it is obvious that In-ah only cares about reaching the top and he is willing to take on any dirty game out of the playbook to win.

Lee Jun-young as the villain is not new as he has done it before but he is nailing his role in the last few episodes. From greed taking over his mind to being all right with removing anybody from the race – even if it means taking their life. In this episode though, he shows more of his sinister side, which looks impressively scary to the viewers.

Lee Jae-wook absolutely smashed it out of the park with his acting. He had a ‘cool’ aura to him for most of the episode but in the scene with his mother – he truly showed his acting prowess. The angst, regret, sadness, and then rage – he showed it all in just a couple of seconds. Hong Su-zu, on the other hand, barely had any screen time. We’re guessing the makers have heard enough complaints regarding her acting and decided it was best not to have her on-screen too much. 

The Impossible Heir is streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.
