Emma's special ability somehow makes it clear... but makes it hard to process at the same time.

 

From what I understand, Emma is the final key to finish the quest (I hope she's the last key) and it seems like the game is the problem. When SJ said he can't sell the game to Cha, I'm pretty sure it's because of the glitch he found. But if that is the reason, why did he call JW to buy his game? Then JW's exes are making me soooo confused.

 

3 episodes left yet questions keep on piling. 

 

 

Se Joo didn't call Jin Woo to buy his game, but somehow thinks he can get a help from Jin woo, bcz he knows Jin Woo is the CEO of J One and have a lot of engineer experts whom maybe can find the game error. that's why he emailed the game to Jin Woo. scared and stressful bcz of Marco and threat from Hyung Seok made him think only Jin Woo could save him atm. but unluckily he can't meet Jin Woo in Granada bcz of Marco. it's the conclusion that I get from ep 9 and 13.

 

the only one which make me baffled is Yura. what did she do this time? is there any relation with Prof. Cha? bcz when Park said to him to cancel the investigation, he said it's too late.

Woah..!!tenor.gif?itemid=7322427   

Action packed, fast-moving episode. Even though we are still clueless about many things and the episode was going in circles but I liked it. 

 

  • HeeJu logged in as 'Emma'..200.gif?cid=3640f6095c1917f8503646636761c43f                                                                                                                                            I am not skeptical because I wanted Guitar woman as her ID, but  I have always been wary of Emma and HeeJu and the possible complication of them being the same. The game can not be trusted when it comes to real people as players, and now when there are two 'Emmas', at least for the game, I don't know what to say..!
  • So, we are back to the theory of Marco zombie and Cha zombie having similar fates. See this is what the writer has been doing; she makes us believe that a theory is false but then cleverly come backs to the very assumption that was refuted. We have been going back and forth all along. Though, the theory is still Jin Woo's assumption and I have decided not to trust him. 
  • Lets say we believe what Jin Woo is saying. It means the problem was with Emma's character; because she embodies 'peace' and therefore anyone who tries to disrupt the 'harmony', within the Alcazba cafe i.e any player who has tried to digress from the game rules would be punished for his vice and misbehaviour. That would explain Cha and Marco's death as they were both somehow violating the Alcazba cafe rule of being the safe heaven for players(Marco stabbed SJ and Cha was shouting and threatening on the phone, ooppss..you can't do that). But it still doesn't explain Seo's death...
  • If the problem is Emma's character, then delete her. However, deleting her now would be full of complications. One, because she knows where SeJu is and two, HeeJu has logged in as Emma..gahh!
  • I just loved how they played out the history and symbolism of Alhambra Palace. Starting from today, I am saving money to visit Spain. Even though that seems like Jin Woo in zombie dungeon quest..impossible! Haha.. but I will try!:D
  • Go Yu Ra. Now I wonder what has she told the police that they are arresting him. Judging from her character, I think she accused him of harassment or something. Though, it is only to make Jin Woo's ordeal much worse than it already is. But that will bring HeeJu in to the picture and I am glad that she is out there to help. It's never too late.. Emma and Zinu against the world..yaayy!!:lol:
  • Emma, Zinu and Bathrooms! Lol..!

PS. I changed my profile pic..I love my zombie!

Ommo... It was really breathtaking and intense!!! I feel like we're reaching the end of the dark tunnel. I started to understand what this is all about and where it's taking us now. 

 

Ah.. the moment when HJ met JW at the cafe is really exciting. She looks so ravishing and cool! I mean look how dangerous that place is but she keeps moving to meet him. She's level one and have no weapons yet. I feel how upset she feels after seeing what JW had been through for all this time. Sigh... writer I know you keep this as your last card to wow and surprise everyone. And it did for me. Could I expect more,  ah... they should have 20 eps at least. I don't want this to end now. 

 

So there is the answer, the key is Emma. And it makes sense how could all this problem might started now. I'm so baffled now. Wow. 

 

Dunno what to tell more.. I think I'd rewatch ep 13 once more. Haha.. once is not enough. I feel like it went too fast. One hour felt very short. 

 

Oh... I love YJ the programmer dude. He is so funny with all those grumpy mood over JW, especially when he realized that his crush is already taken. LOL. 

 

The question of when the game start having problems, what's the reason, what's behind this seems to come onto the surface now. Now, the last journey is finding our master SJ. The question is how could he hid himself? If yes, then where is he hiding all this time? What makes him to stay hidden? Is it in real world or did he merge into the AR game? My head is spinning with all of these thoughts. I wonderes maybe be he fall into comma or something, so that explains why he is missing and stay in his level for so long. Like JW, he might struggle in his place too, to find and send his S.O.S signals to him. 

 

And what trick does YR try to play now? Sighh... please don't waste too much durations only for those investigations scene. It would be quite annoying. So, they're going to Slovenia, Hungary and Budapest based on the filming records. I'm sure it will be the climax of the show next week. And that also means the end... nooo.... writer give us satisfying ending please, give us the whole answers and don't forget the romance!! Hahaha

 

P.S. sniper JW is really cool! Whenever he shoots those assassins are really cool!I just can't hold myself from awe-ing him... :wub:

They met in the bathroom. Bathroom is the first place for users to find their weapon. So she plays rightt???

:lol: It's not a bathroom. It's the changing room in a clothing store...

LOL. Really. Looks like bathroom first. Did I see it wrong. Okay. I'll watch again. Haha. 

 

~~~~

 

She must come to help him. Sighh.. those police are really no help at all at this time. Did prof cha did nothing about the lawsuit, shouldn't he withdraw it. If JW lost and somethig bad happen to him. He'll get the same loss for himself too. 

 

I think the real key to this is still SJ. He's the creator, the one who created and programmed the game. So it is right for him to finish his task to return it to its ordinary state. I mean, JW thinks that giving the key to Emma will complete the quest. Completing the quest doesn't guarantee that the problem is solved. ;)

They keep replaying previous scenes :huh:.

Anyway so JW only need to bring the key to Emma to finish the quest? He didn’t need to go to the gate of something in Alhambra?

I don't see a problem with HJ logging in as Emma the player while there is Emma the NPC in the game, actually. The question is whether the game is going to conflate the two, but I don't see why it would. The key to the quest is clearly Emma the NPC and the Key to Heaven that JW has. I guess he's going to bring the two items together now, the Key to Heaven and Fatima's bracelet that is worn on NPC Emma's hand. I hope that brings some more answers.

 

As for the glitch being NPC Emma, I guess I can buy that somehow having Marco stab SJ in front of NPC Emma triggered a glitch, but that still doesn't explain Cha's death to me. Okay, he was yelling and angry at the cafe, however, the restriction didn't seem to be all aggressive behaviour, but rather, actual fighting which he didn't do. Not to mention, the Secretary's death from the game since he wasn't aggressive at all nor was he in Alzacaba Cafe.

 

I am curious about what YR is going to say about JW, however, and I agree that it was Professor Cha who put her up to it. However, I wonder why Prof. Cha couldn't just call YR up and tell her not to divulge it? Though, perhaps it's "evidence" that was manufactured by Prof Cha and given to YR, and it's not as if YR is going to not divulge it on his say so.

 

Also, when SJ called JW, I think SJ was desperate to attract JW's attention and help, and the potential sale of the game was the way he thought he could get those. The figure for the sale of the game, SJ seems to have tossed out there since that was the number HS had been willing to pay anyway, and that might have made for a legitimate number to attract JW's interest. I don't think that SJ had plans to sell the game to HS with the issue with Marco outstanding, and then after the glitch was found in the game, SJ probably wasn't thinking about a sale of the game at all. I think SJ was making a cry for help. I would guess though that if JW had been able to help him resolve things easily, then SJ would have wanted to have worked with J One to further develop the game.

 

Anyway, I'm eager for the next episode, hoping that it shows more answers rather than raising even more questions. Though, given this writer, that is not a certainty. :)

I'm gonna look at the bright side,tomorrow we're getting a hug scene :wub:

That’s the most scene I am waiting for :D...

well, watching it on netflix and than read all the recaps help me through all the flashback.

HJ played the game but not as JW ally, cause he is still as an ally to prof cha. Remember Jw once said to park that he can not break the alliance as long as both of them were alive.

I love the flashbackceptions here, in each one there would be an answer or a clue for the present or the next even. Do you know I almost rewatching all of MOA episodes just to look back and try to find why real player could be killed in the game. Just I said maybe this game has error or something interfering the previous game. And the answer was at alcazaba cafe, the only place that always raining and MOA song was played. Perhaps SJ made boundaries within the game that prevented users using real weapon or touch each other. So Marco who did not realized it, stabbed SJ with the real knife suddenly made an error inside the game. Before their quarreling they were already in game mode, because we could see Emma playing guitar, and Emma saw them fight. After they left the cafe, CHS who was also in game mode has come and waited for Marco for hours until SJ picked up Marco’s phone and answering him. I think if we could see the NPC or pirates or Emma or the rain at least one player was logged on, so we could see the different sight of JW jacket when HJ still logged on and after logged out. 

about the golden key, JW think he should give it to Emma after he reach level 100. That is the key to find SJ. just one poster here said SJ was hiding inside the game but since he is a fugitive now maybe the only wayto give the key to Emma is inside the church. But don’t ask me why it must be a church. It still dark for me. 

So, for me the final key is Emma...

@PororoQueen did you ask what ID HJ will have right? I love that she uses her own name, Emma. Real Emma meets NPC Emma. How interesting. 

 

And there's a lot for me to read here. I would read randomly first. Ah.. I am so happy that I still can keep oppa on my profile. Those zombies won't take his place! :lol:

 

@stroppyse  agreed, I also think that he wasn't planning to sell it. Well he would but his real goal is asking for his help.

What an action packed episode JW as a sniper is ooohla la to the highest level :phew: . I like the concept of flashback which connect JW assumptions and some clarification on game connection to Alhambra symbols (but the coolest part is I did not get lost following it):sweatingbullets:

 

JW and PD banters abt his relationship w HJ is really cute. With JW playfully asked him if he shld apologize - now we know that subway sanwich cannot only restore game health it can possibly cure a broken heart :D

 

Also like the way they played it on the romance dept.. it was just chill go w the flow devt between the couple. JW smiles within their crisis is just so cool coz he is determined in finishing the quest/ game becoz he already have the reason in doing so. .....

at least changing my dp to zombie panpan is worth it for this wk :tounge_wink:

oknow the game makes sense

 

and i guess from overall perspective, programmer SJ always designed it to be a breakthrough kind of game'

 

The day the quest ends, the mirage of virtual disappears!

 

That's what i was always saying, the only way to end the game is to win it

 

**************

Thsi also explains why presence of other humans doesn't stop the game.. it had to be emma for duel to stop.. so HJ in hospital was the obstacle and only her

 

why dead NPC keep reappearing .. the rule says no fight, yet fight happens.. so that affected the other rule.. rule says defeated and move on, but defeated kept re-appearing as if not defeated

Maybe it won't, maybe it will. The thing is, it is now been hinted that Emma was probably the cause of glitch and Emma is the game version of human HeeJu. It's like SeJu unknowingly transgressed the boundaries of AR world by putting up Emma. If real players were not dying while playing AR game, I would have understood your point of why should a game confuse between NPC Emma and HeeJu ID Emma. But since the game has all along been fusing between augmented and reality, I can sense danger about HJ being logged in as Emma. I could be wrong..it's like 50:50..

It doesn't explain Seo's death. No. I hope something does..

This is something that I inferred on my own. The episode did not indicate such a thing, in fact, it can also be inferred this way- because Emma saw a rule being violated in Alzacaba cafe that one player had stabbed another player hence from now on any player who violates the rule of physical fighting or player vs. player fighting, would be punished for doing so. You can not duel as long as you are playing the game. It's like Emma's version of punishing the bad kids..lol..scary version..:ph34r:

 

About selling the game. I think SJ was offended by the threat. I also think that he always wanted to sell to Jin Woo only but maybe Marco insisted of going to CHS first. Remember he was following the news of JW staying in Barcelona for tech exhibition. By the time he had the chance to talk to JW, it was already too late and the game had glitched. It was not about Marco dying and thats why not selling the game to him..he never wanted to do sell it to CHS. 

 

And yes..the episode has just raised the bar..and now I am like..bring on episode 14..:w00t:

he must have asked yura to float around the story of JW-SJ being lovers once again.. and basically discredit JW and SJ.. 

they started affair, killed HS etc etc

At this moment with only 3 episodes left I just hope that at least the last episode will revolves only HJ and JW and of course not to forget the captain of the ship minju. JW and HJ deserve a happy ending after all the sacrifices they have done especially JW who never had happiness since he was young . He who never really feel to love and be loved . Now he found it . He really deserves it.

I think there has to be one more scene in Alhambra place. If SeJu is really hiding there then someone has to go and bring him back and check whether is alive or in his senses or not..

I also had the same question, but it is like- Emma is wearing Fatima's bracelet and JW has the Key to Heaven. So when the two items finally fall in place i.e the key is placed in Emma's hand, the quest will finish. It's like a symbolic, game version of the literal, religious history of Alhambra. That's why Emma was shown sitting inside a church..religious symbolism.

So, what I learnt tonite :-

 

1. lol... To JW for threathening CYJ. JW ordered CYJ to create a special weapon for him (what could it be?) based on friendship. In return, JW had to hire him as an executive if he lose his job. And JW replied only if he live.. :lol:

 

2. Park and Prof Choi meetings. Park said JW still limping in cctv while playing MOA. It must be because of playing, JW cannot feel the pain but usually, eventually the pain will be worst when he return to reality. Now, I doubt Park n Prof Choi is the evil one. I am happy seeing him shaken by the experience. Luckily he dont have a heart attack or collapse. A healthy man, huh! 

 

3. Really curious about Yu Ra. She really something. I hate her. Just because she is a celebrity, she can turn the camera on her? Hope she will be punished. 

 

4. Again, dangerous driving by our JW. Luckily the light turn green and he can move. 

 

5. Such a convenience game. You can track a player using this game. No need for other car navigation. All in one.. Make it available on market this game is. Everybody can replenish the energy from Subway. Just take me there! 

 

6. Oh Marco. You crazy evil manipulative frenemy! Might be CHS died without knowing the creator of the game. SJ 70/30 with Marco is fair, considering who create the game. But again, they wait at the Alcazaba cafe in Granada > Marco stab SJ with real knife > they start attacking each other in MOA til the forrest > Marci died in MOA (I bet the real body have no blood mark like CHS) > SJ back to Barcelona in Marco's apartment (it might because something he need to do) > back to Granada (after calling JW) by train and missing. 

 

7. JW purposedly make a distraction to himself so HJ was left alone. Not only HJ, we all feel sad looking at JW condition. 

 

Looking forward for tomorrow episode. In the preview, JW looks exhausted. Okay, I want him alive (HJ please revive him with a kiss). Reaching level 100 and hope to end the quest. Open the Key to heaven supposed will crash the palace (MOA)?. SJ might be alive but in no condition to travel? 

 

Time to sleep. GOODNITE!
