Khun has just finished talking with someone on his Pocket about the new Slayer candidate, and meets with Edin Dan, a fast Scout. Dan names his price for catching a silver carp, but Khun actually wants to recruit him onto his team. He makes a deal: if Dan can get out of the café and evade all the Regulars in the café, he will get a chunk of pure suspendium. If he can’t, he will have to join Khun's Team. Khun also mentions that every Regular in the café was hired by him. At first, Dan is unconfident, but notices an escape exit and runs for it. But this actually led to a dead-end which Khun lured him to with the lie that every Regular in the café was hired. Dan is surprised but is still able to dash past Khun and head towards the exit. However, it turns out that Khun had planned for this and hired only the cashier, who shot Dan with a tranquillizer dart.
He wakes up in Khun's team’s house, and Novick brings him to see the rest of the team. After being briefly introduced, Novick challenges him on the pretense of fighting Ran again and quickly pulverises him. He is then resuscitated by Michael and watches the battle between Novick and Ran in awe.
Meanwhile, Khun comforts Rachel who had nightmares about Baam and after a while leaves. Afterwards, Rachel gets up and walks around the room. Outside, Khun calls Leesoo on his pocket and tells him that they had finally gotten all the team members. Then he says that he’s certain Rachel tricked them.
Six years ago, he met up with Leesoo and told him this, saying that Lero-Ro had called a doctor, who had said that the injury was minor and didn’t need fixing. He tells Leesoo to lead the team up first and he would stay and build the fence that would both protect and watch her. He begged Leesoo not to tell anyone, because he “wanted to preserve the team that Baam wanted to protect, and the thought that Rachel betrayed them was so cruel, that only the cruelest among them should bear it.
That night, he gathers his teammates and tells them that they’d be climbing the Tower again. He tells them of his ambitions to succeed Khun Eduan. He tells them to protect Rachel, comfort her, be kind to her but “never to get attached to her, never think of her as a friend, so you can ignore her cries of pain someday. Despise her, because she is the one who killed my closest friend”.
Notes and Trivia
- The original name that we used for this arc was '완료 울타리' and 'Completing Fences', but this was a creative liberty on the part of The Company (Previous Translator), and does not reflect the literal name of the arc. GoDai, the previous translator, stated the reason for this in Season 2, Chapter 25: "The original Korean was ambiguous. We translated it as “Knot of Wool” as that made the most literal sense, but now we believe that SIU took the poetic route and “Completing Fences” is a more accurate translation."
