LUCA - Episode 6: A Matter of Time
For a mercenary, Lee Son baffles me in his dogged pursuit of Zi 0; he knows he is no match to him, but yet LS continues to go after him, why what motivates him could really be that he wants Zi 0's arm, really but why does he hate Zi 0 so much, something doesn't add up. I can't help but wonder if LS was always a monster or did the experiments make him one; either way, there seems to be more than meets the eye with him.
Mad scientist Ryu Joong Kwon disgusts me. I doubt he's the one that developed the experiment that made Zi 0, to begin with; if I were to speculate, I would say it's Gu Reum's parents. And rather than kill him, he seems to want to study him. He seems to have a completely different agenda than the crazed politician and cult leader, which will soon get him in trouble. That said, the level he's willing to stoop to get what he wants upsets me, and as people who claim to have made Zi 0, they sure seem to underestimate him time and time again. And do not seem to know when to let things lay; their narrow-mindedness blows me each time. It's so easy to see Zi 0 is no monster, and if he is, he's of their own making.
No doubt this episode's happenings are the culmination of everything that's happened to Zi 0 for the past five episodes. They've chased him relentlessly, knifed, pierced, prodded, and demonized him and for no apparent reason, at least not to him. All he's ever wanted was to be left alone to live his life in peace like any other human being. Everybody, even the one person he trusted, Gu Reum, seems to want something from him. I can only imagine the level of frustration but learning the true reason for his existence, and Ryu Joong Kwon's reality is the straw that breaks the camel's back, so to speak. Zi 0 exploding with the full force of his abilities was but a matter of time. I enjoyed seeing the fear in the eyes of all those who've used and wronged him for no fault of his own; they are the real monsters. I have to say that was the best ending ever; I loved it.
