Stranger Season 2 Episode 1 Recap

In season 1 of ‘Stranger’, we had been introduced to Hwang Shi Mok (Cho Seung Woo), a person who cannot feel any emotion like other humans. This is the result of a brain surgery that was performed on him when he was still a kid. Currently, Shi Mok works as a prosecutor. But because of his inability to process emotions like his peers, he is an outcast. But Shi Mok is extremely dedicated to his job and is one of those few remaining prosecutors in the state who is not corrupt. He eventually becomes entangled in a murder case when he sees a dead body in his path. This is when he teams up with detective Han Yeo Jin (Bae Doo Na). The two then work together to solve a murder case that involves a serial killer and also fight corruption.

Toward the end of season 1, Shi Mok traces down the mastermind behind the murder. But the criminal commits suicide by jumping off a building and leaves Shi Mok a bag that contains many secrets. The prosecutor uses this evidence to reveal the rampant corruption in his office. Season 2 starts off two years after the events of season 1’s conclusion. The premiere episode of the second iteration begins with the Prosecutor’s Office and the National Police Agency getting into an ethical dispute. The former seeks discretionary power over all investigative proceedings. On the other hand, the latter wants autonomous authority. Shi Mok and Yeo Jin face a new case and they decide to carry out their own, individual investigation amidst the chaos.

Season 2 marks the return of Cho Seung Woo as Hwang Shi Mok, Bae Doo Na as Han Yeo Jin, Choi Moo Sung as Woo Tae Ha, and Jeon Hye Ji as Choi Bit.
