They dine in quiet, and afterward, each of them silently takes knives from the table for future use. They returned to their dorm to prepare for the last game.
Joon-ho, who has been besieged at the cliff by the front man and his guards, is terrified since he has no
way out. The front man takes off his mask, and Joon-ho is taken aback when he realizes the front man is
his missing brother. The Front man shoots Joon-ho quickly, and he goes off the cliff.
