Wol is being led to meet with B. wol remembers asking S who became the crown princess in her place and S told her minister yoon’s daughter B, the one who went through everything with YW. wol asks if there was a re-selection but S says B was chosen right away.
M: I am prepared to step down from my position and choose that girl -are you prepared to step down from your position? like you want, if I leave that girl’s side, can you protect her in my place. H:hyungnim. M: If you arent willing to lose anything, If you aren’t willing to have something taken away then what can you protect. H: hyungnim. M: she didnt do anything wrong and turned her into a criminal and only gave her pain/scars- what is there that you can do. H tells him to stop. M asks if H can let go of YW. Cuz I can do that. but no matter what you wont be able to do that.
B screams so wol tell the aide not to bother with her and to go in and take care of the queen and wol will leave quietly alone out of the palace. Aide tells her not to get caught while leaving so wol says if I did then how would I survive. when wol is alone she thinks to herself that in B’s eyes there was fear but why.
B keeps yelling. aide asks why she is like this. B repeats: it’s not (her). B remembers what she asked her dad when she was young. did you kill YW? and what her dad said to her about if she wants to live in the palace, if you want the prince’s heart then you have to throw away your guilt and pity. and how she said that no one can steal her position now. B cries and keeps thinking that cant happen. That girl is dead for sure.
Wol walks by the hidden room building. She remembers how young H said in his letter that starting from today she would be starting her training -how it will be lonely and difficult but since it’s her, she could do it well and endure.
Wol remembers how young H asked if she was crying and thinking of her family that she left behind - if you are open the window. She opens the window again and H is gone. She goes downstairs and looks around. She cant find H. she looks sad and H walks over. He asks why she is here. tell me – you are supposed to be at the infirmary so why are you here. she says she was ordered here and lost her way for a short time on her way out. no. without realizing I was drawn to the moonlight. I am sorry –since this place holds meaning for you - I will be going now.
She cries more as he walks away without looking back. She watches him as he leaves.
MW is in the dark. She remembers how Y’s mom said Y’s dad killed himself. how sad he was to send his daughter away. She keeps crying. she remembers when she first met YW and asked which one was Y’s sister and YW said it’s me and MW said you resemble Y and look pretty. She cries more and remembers how when she was a kid how the dowager told her to get up cuz MW had been in bed for days. And how she begged the dowager to convince her dad to let her marry Y. dowager asked if MW liked Y that much. MW: yes-if it’s not that person I will die. dowager says the king will never allow that so what to do. MW cries. then the dowager said dont cry – it’s not like there is no possible way for that to happen. (meaning there is one way) MW asked what that is. Dowager says-then will you help this grandmother. MW shakes and cries remembering. after the spell when the dowager asked MW – are you afraid? now you will get what you want so you can stop being scared now.
Y calls out asking if MW is asleep so she gets up and smiles and says no. he comes in and asks if she had been crying. she says no. and asks what brings him here at this time. he says he worried cuz she hasn’t moved ever since they came back from his father’s gravesite. she cries so he asks why-did he do say something wrong. she lies and says she had a bad dream he disappeared so now she is relieved to see him like this. He hugs her and he says: I’m in trouble. She asks if anything bad happened to him. He says he thought she was pretty when she smiled but now he thinks she is more pretty when she cried so that’s big trouble. She asks him to forgive her. he asks for what. MW: for everything. He says he will watch over her all night so dont worry. She asks if he will stay by her side all night. He tells her to sleep comfortably
N explains the serious crime of killing the crown princess and if the princess’s involvement is revealed, the king has to punish his own family member. and the princess’s husband will be come a criminal too so those people used the princess as the offering. even if the king and you reveal all this truth, those people think you wont have any choice but to cover it up again. Wol cries. N: miss. Wol asks then what do I have to do. N: you have to choose – whether you are going to reveal all the truth and go to the king’s side or cover up all of this and just live. Wol: is this what you worried about for 8 long yrs. N says I am meeting the king tm and the reason is he is looking for you. I will follow whatever you want.
Wol goes off by herself and cries. N watches from the doorway as wol cries.
H meets with the ministers and yells about the corruption at the infirmary using words like “I told you to treat the sick at the infirmary - who asked you to raise a baby mouse.” H refers to them as mice that steals from the patients at the infirmary. even if you dont have any conscience, you really dont have it (you are going too far) Ministers say H is speaking too harshly and to take it back. H: you think my words are going too far. H gives examples of how they wanted to match the measurement of the rice so they mixed in pebbles to make porridge. why would they go so far as to go around saying anyone who ate that didnt survive. are you saying the citizens at the infirmary should starve and die. Minister says in order to keep up with the cost of running the place, they need more funds and it’s not like they can raise more taxes. H keeps yelling at them listing how he will look into stuff and if they did any of that, he is going to catch the culprits right away.
H goes back and N is waiting. She asks if he looked for her.
Dowager hears that N went to meet with H. aide reports how H looked for N every day. dowager orders the aide to bring N as soon as she comes out from meeting H
N goes outside and remembers how wol asked N not to tell the king anything cuz wol doesnt want him to be tormented again cuz of her.dowager’s aide asks to see N
Dowager asks why N went to meet H. N quickly lies: since the head seungsucheong changed he just wanted to know her face so he called her. dowager accuses N of lying and points out how the king had zero interest in seungsucheong so there must have been some other reason to meet. N: truthfully he wanted to know about my spiritual daughter. dowager asks if it’s your daughter- are you talking about the girl who was kicked out to the infirmary. N: yes. dowager asks why would the king do that – does he want to keep her by his side again. N says no he just wanted to keep the bad rumors about the girl to stop so going around and ordered the other shaman girls to keep their mouths shut. Dowager asks if that is all. N: why would I dare to lie. dowager says the way N is acting is different from that day when N boldly threatened her. N says that night the life of her spiritual daughter was on the line so for a short time she didnt see anything else. I committed a sin that deserves death. N pledges the rest of her life to serve the dowager and asks for forgiveness. Dowager says wol cant be near H. N says I will be careful that doesnt happen. in her head, N says-do you know? the more you try to stop it- you are helping the two of them. isnt that really ironic
H walks away and thinks in his head how N did the dowager’s bidding and the dowager wanted B to be the crown princess so the dowager made N cast a spell on YW. he recalls N saying: if I did kill someone with a spell, I would be dead already too. but if I am alive like this, shouldnt the person I killed with the spell not exist. H reads into N’s words and says it means if black arts was used and that person who cast the spell is alive,then the person it was used on could be alive too. H remembers how Hong said even after she stopped breathing for over two hours her body was warm. H concludes that YW could be alive
Nurse wonders what is wrong with the girl cuz they saved her so what is she doing. Wol is asked to figure out what to do with the girl. The girl doesn’t want to eat even though wol says you need energy so eat the porridge. girl pushes it away. Wol: are you trying to die. tell me and I will keep your secret. Why do you want to die. girl says even if I live my parents wont be glad. cuz she cant help out the family financially even if she does live and is just a burden.Wol says what are you talking about. she says how the girl’s father carried the girl on his back when she was dying and came all this way-what do you mean he wont be glad if his daughter lived. Girl says without her there will be one less person to feed in her family so her parents can suffer less. Wol says I know how you feel very well. back then I was young so I thought if I was gone that my whole family could live well – if I disappear that would be the end of it. But one night suddenly a daughter they loved was gone what parent in this world can be ok. no matter how living together is enough and that’s what a family is. Don’t be weak and say you will die again. Girl hugs wol and cries
M comes up and hears that. he says in his head- please tell me you aren’t -that you arent Heo YW -that you are just shaman wol. no – that you have no past connection with the king
There are girl’s clothes so she asks if he disguised himself as a girl. he tells her to keep it if she wants. She thinks of giving it to jansil but he says no. he has some place he wants to go with her and he wants her to wear that cuz it will look good. wol: can I ask where that place is. He says it’s my long time friend’s home and my teacher that I mentioned. He sees her reaction. She looked away startled (cuz it’s her own home)
H thinks to himself –what if she is alive then why didn’t she show up in front of me- why. H remembers when he met wol the first night and how he saw the young yw in the woods holding the lantern and how she said she was waiting for him – why are you just coming now. and how he named her wol. He remembers how he asked who she was, how she said she isnt the person he wants. how he kept asking her if in her past memoried he wasnt there. how she said she couldnt give him the answer he wants. H wonders why she acted like she didnt know him. cuz for certain she didnt look like she was lying. until he confirms the grave where YW is buried, this is something that is impossible. this is something that couldnt possibly happen.
Hong meets with Y and says hong has an order from the king to secretly investigate YW’s death 8 yrs ago. Y thinks if H gave hong that order that there might be some conspiracy/ foul play behind YW’s death. Hong says sorry but without an order he cant tell Y anything. Hong says how there are hardly any people who remember the incident from what happened 8 yrs ago so he had some roadblocks and asks Y to tell him anything he knows. Y says how he was somewhere else and was only able to see her funeral so he wasn’t able to protect YW. Y says sorry for not being of help.
Servant walks hong out. Hong sort of strangles him and says he is going to ask a few questions so dont resist him.
Y’s mom is packing old clothes she doesnt wear to send to the infirmary. Y says every year this time she does this. he asks to take her this time. mom says that’s good but this time she is going to infirmary on the west or east (not sure which one but it’s the one she doesnt usually go to -it’s the one where wol went) Y asks if it’s cuz that girl who resembled Yw. The mom said even if that girl is not YW she will have parents – how much their hearts would be torn if they saw what their daughter went through. The mom wants to see her again and give her warm comfort. she asks what brings Y here. Y says how the king ordered to secretly investigate YW’ death
Servant says how he wasn’t able tell his owners cuz it might hurt them. so there is one thing he didnt tell them. hong hits him for stalling so much and says hurry and talk. Servant says YWs grave was disturbed when he went there the day after the funeral. servant says our poor miss. Servant recognizes S and asks arent you S?hong remembers seeing S when she tried to get to wol as wol was led away. hong asks if the guy knows S. S runs off. Servant says he isnt totally sure.
H hears that YW grave was disturbed and Y and his mom doesnt know that. and how there is one more unusal thing. how every time he went out to investigate some girl kept showing up and hong ran into her outside the former aide’s home. and saw her in front of Y’s home . the servant said how she was a slave a long time ago there. But hong knows that girl to be shaman Wol’s servant. H orders HS that H wants to go to seungsucheong right now
H walks there and thinks to himself of all the clues he has -the spell, body temp that didnt drop, rushed funeral, disturbed grave, a murder that leaves no evidence behind, seungsucheong, head shaman jang (N) and also wol’s slave who keeps showing up in YW’s death investigation - now all there is left is to confirm
H goes to see N. she asks if he came by.
B is scared and in the corner. Her mom goes to her. B screams and her mom asks why B is like this. What did you see for you to be so scared like this trembling. B says mother that girl heo yw is alive. Her mom says that girl died 8 yrs ago. she is already buried so how…B says it was that girl without a mistake – she is close to the king again. She is certainly going to chase me out and regain her place for sure – mother. Her mom says be strong. Her mom says from the start being queen was B’s place. and it wasnt stolen away. cuz you think like that you keep seeing things. B screams out she isnt seeing things. her mom asks why B is like this. B: I know everything – that my father killed that girl YW. to make me the crown princess – to that girl, father…Her mom tells B all she needs to do is keep her mouth shut. Even if he did, B needs to trust her father.
Yoon is alone in the room. He keeps thinking he saw wol somewhere before. then the time when the king met YW and asked who she was and she said she was minister heo’s daughter. So yoon thinks Heo YW is alive. how did this happen. He thinks N might have done this
H tells N not to lie from here on to whatever I ask. if you dont answer right away or play with your words, you wont be able to escape punishment. got that? she says she will do as he asks. H: is shaman wol your spiritual daughter. she says yes. H: when did she become your spiritual daughter. She says yes since 8 yrs ago. he asks what N meant when she said that a shaman cuts ties with her past life-does it mean she is not remembering on purpose or does it mean she cant remember. N says a shaman has to naturally cut her past life and not think of it. in the trauma of her death, I saw a shaman lose her memory of her past life. H: inside the trauma of her death, she can come to life. he asks if she is talking about the shock of being locked up in a coffin. so what happened to that shaman? did she regain her memory or does she still not know who she is. I will ask you one last thing. that shaman – Is that shaman’s name Wol? H cries and yells answer me. Is shaman Wol Heo YW who died 8 yrs ago?
H walks with only HS and woon following. H remembers all the mean things he said to wol – like how dare she lay hands on the king when she isnt even a person. just cuz I kept you by my side, did you think I gave you my heart too. you are just an amulet – no more or no less. He falls to his knees and cries holding his heart. HS kneels and cries too.
