Who hates the evil grandma even more after this episode? *raises hands* The witch is on a roll driving wedges between families. After ordering the hit on her son’s half-brother many years ago, she’s now playing devil’s advocate between Hwon and Yang-myung… who are both her grandsons! Absolute power corrupts, eh? Can’t blame any of the grandkids if they chose to stay away from the palace just to avoid running into her at any time. Min-hwa might have stayed away as well ever since she got married.
The writers are taking their sweet little time building up the reunion between Hwon and Yeon-woo. Now we have the poor king confused because the shaman sent to be his human amulet stirs some feelings in him that he hasn’t felt since YW was around. Bo-kyung sure isn’t happy with these developments. She’s starting to go paranoid and the episode today ended with her going to the king’s chambers. Will she get an idea that Wol the shaman girl is actually her ‘long-thought—of-as-dead-by-everyone’ rival, Yeon-woo?
My heart broke for the Heo family in this episode. Clearly, they are still not over what had happened to their beloved YW. The mom still grieves for her daughter. The brother misses his sister. What I’d love to see is how MH’s guilt (the past is slowly catching up with everyone!) over her indirect role in the incident will affect her attitude and relationship with the Heo’s who are now her family as well. I’d like to see her evolve from being a spoiled princess who dotes on her husband, to someone who owns up to her mistakes and learns from it. I have no doubt the writers have something in store for her. So far, drama!MH is tolerable than her book counterpart.
Yeom’s slowly stepping up as a character too. Yayyy! I love him more and more with each episode. <3 And who says SJH is too old for the role? For a character who’s been through so much, I say he fits right into the role perfectly. Haters can just scoot over to the left. ^___^
And hurray, they actually released a video preview after tonight’s episode? At least this will be enough to tide us over until the next episode airs in less than 24hrs.
