His visitor was Lady Ki, who checked whether his fever had went down. His concern was on the suffering citizens, but Baek Ahn thought that he was trying to school him. Both of them were ready to face the war, aware with the outcome that one of them would have to die. She spared Court Lady Seo because of Maha and told the court lady to bring Maha to Goryeo once he had recovered. The vengeful Seung-nyang admitted that Yoo was the only person forever in her heart and she aimed her bow right at Ta-hwan before shooting the arrow….
Jeokho reported that the leader were different people. The Empress Dowager gave a rude remark which made Sungnyang caution her. She was confident to go against him although it could cost her a big loss: not only her own life but also the lives of Goryeo people in Yuan could be endangered. She told him to promise that he would never to look back whatever happened. The Empress Dowager demanded that Lady Ki and all the servants from Koryo be arrested.
See you soon guys to share our sadness and tears. He thought that Seung-nyang was different from the Dowager but he recalled his nightmare. On the contrary, Ta-hwan thought that Sungnyang was a lot different from the Empress Dowager. Oh God, of all times…why the reunion had to be at this heartbreaking moment?! You have your face on the wanted posted on every corner of the city! Empress Dowager was so shocked upon hearing that she had never thought that she would lose her power this soon. Maha was still addressing Ta-hwan as his father but soon realized his mistake and corrected himself.
Maha was not his real nephew. Awwww…please accept the challenge, Taltal! As soon as it was safe, Wang Yu stopped the wagon and checked on Onbisu. He demanded to know what they meant when they said that Maha was his son. The Empress just smiled and ordered Yom Byongsu to spread the rumour that men from Koryo attacked the prince. Any foolish action would mean their death but Chancellor Bayan had a plan….
He treated the petition with the Imperial seal as the concrete evidence and she wondered if he was accusing her of conducting the crime, since they were her people. Eunuch Bang found out about the arrangement and told the secret keepers about it, but Yoo was nearby and overheard them. Unable to hide his curiosity, Maha immediately sat-up and asked what she meant. Poor Maha was confused and did not know whom to trust. Without explaining, Wang Yu told his men that they would head back to Yuan. The whole court was indeed surprised to hear that except for a few who knew about it beforehand and Seung-nyang brought in the nun to testify about Tanashiri taking away the abandoned child before burning down the temple. The Empress Dowager blamed everything on Sungnyang.
Translation for episode 48 preview has been posted. Empress Dowager came over to tell him another bad news: Maha had been attacked and it was said to be the work of people from Goryeo. He turned around and saw Sungnyang with an another arrow aimed at him. Eunuch Bang over-heard the arrangement and was pleased with it. At the Yuan Border, Onbisu cooked some meat for Wang Yu who noticed that there was a smudge on her face. However, she would have to act quickly if she wanted to protect him. Sungnyang said that it was not her evidence and pointed at Dok-man who found the ring.
Eunuch Bang chose not to tell him the truth for the time being. Prince Maha decided to turn around and ran towards Lady Ki but it was too late. He opened his eyes and saw her in front of him, with the same robe in his dreams. Sungnyang held Maha in her arms, crying at the sight of her child in pain. Dok-man suddenly yelled at him to go to Lady Ki instead of the assassins. She invited him for a short, fun trip outside the palace. Coincidentally, that leader was having a meeting with his men.
She asked him to think of her every now and then…. Jo-cham was worried that now they have no one to turn to. Hold on a little longer, my son. However, Sungnyang was aware that there were still people in the palace who wanted Crown Prince Ayu and herself dead. She ordered Dok-man to tell the truth to Maha once he woke up. On her way out, Sungnyang reminded Court Lady Seo that her loyalty to Maha kept her alive. Lady Ki showed up at the temple.
Seung-nyang smiled victoriously at the frowning Baek Ahn and Taltal witnessed their exchange…come on, make your decision, Taltal! Byung-soo would spread the rumour that Maha was attacked by people from Goryeo and Lady Ki would be inflicted this time. The crisis may have passed but they would still have to observe Maha. But fate had other plans for the baby. Bad timing, especially with the Dowager and the Chancellor waiting to attack her! Truer words had never been said, Lady Ki! His mind was clearly disturbed. The Empress Dowager was so shocked upon hearing that Maha was a fake prince and passed out. Seung-nyang: Come to your senses. Cornered, Empress Bayan denied the she knew Yom Byongsu but Sungnyang requested for Court Lady Seo to tell the truth.
Bi-soo cooked some meat for Yoo and he noticed that her face was smeared with soot. You were trying to show off your sincerity, huh? Yoo made his trip to the same temple after finding out that Maha had been staying there for a few days. If you pay more attention to your country…then Lady Ki will voluntarily stop from protecting the country, Ta-hwan. Lady Ki thought that Baek Ahn was the one who was slowly destroying the country instead of her. Bayan was still hoping that her uncle would come to her help but it was the declaration of her being deposed which came to her. Sungnyang was on the verge of crumbling but she willed herself to tell Maha that he was just an abandoned child found in the hills. Hence, you have to be stronger.
