Recapturing Great Pretender Episode 20
The next part of Ozaki’s scheme involved Si-Won showing pictures of Dorothy to Liu, passing her off as a princess of the Ethiopian dynasty. He agreed to buy her for $10 million after Si-Won threatened to sell her to Akemi instead. The gang then “kidnapped” Dorothy in Kyoto and took her to Liu, planning to break her out the next day. Ozaki returned to Tokyo and Si-Won returned to Seoul.
However, on the next day, Laurent learned that the real descendants of the Ethiopian dynasty were coming to Shanghai, which threatened the operation if Liu realized that Dorothy was not the princess. Laurent told Ozaki and Si-Won to flee, and he frantically rushed to save Dorothy. However, Chen took her onto Liu’s private yacht where Ozaki told Liu the location of the money, but Liu had Dorothy shot and killed anyway in front of Laurent.
With Dorothy gone, Laurent had only the ring she wore around her neck, and he fell into a deep depression. However, Si-Won returned to France and rekindled his interest in life. A few years later Laurent encountered Cynthia in London who tried to scam him. Impressed by her skills, he decided to form a new gang with Cynthia, Si-Won, and Ozaki.
He then recruited Abby in Brooklyn for her fighting abilities. After serving his prison sentence, Ozaki became Liu’s new interpreter, while also arranging for his friend Kudou to coach Edamame in con artist skills.
