This episode made me cry. The 8th prince’s wife, Myung Hee, dies. That in itself was heart wrenching, but the way she wanted her husband and Hae Soo to be together so her husband could be happy…a selfless woman to the end, caring only for her husband.
So, now, the relationship between the 8th prince and Hae Soo is out in the open. In kdrama land, that can’t be good.
On to Prince So (my favorite, of course), history has it he married his half sister. There was some hint of this in episode 5 when Emperor Taejo and the princess talk about her being married off and then she runs into Prince So.
That’ll complicate things as we all know Hae Soo and Prince So need to get together…’cause Scarlet Heart: Ryeo is a kdrama and that’s what should happen in a kdrama.
About Hae Soo (IU)…the character is maturing, which I am happy to see. We still see a lot of the anime school girl antics, but her character is more likable, now.
Here’s what I got out of this episode…the 8th prince is careless, letting others outside of his wife know about his feelings for Hae Soo. Prince So loves to tease Hae Soo. Prince So’s mother is still a whack job. I’m going to miss Myung Hee.
