I think Hyuk died in that explosion. He caught the brunt of it, but shielded Sunny who survived. I think he left a letter before the anniversary bash detailing his crimes, and bequeathing the throne to Sunny. I think the images of him standing upright in the room with his hands behind his back are flashbacks to what happened before the explosion. I think he left a letter to Sunny apologizing for what he did, and his regret, and thanking her for her time with him, and ending with I love you, Oh Sunny, and goodbye. I cried through the last scenes and the montage of scenes showing their wedding, and the tears in her eyes as she turned to him and said, "He used me and he deceived me." Jang Nara is such an amazing actress, she always moves me to tears.

 

Yep. I think this is what will happen too. Ep 51-52 will be a flashback of him. Omooo. I'm already sad thinking this might happen. The probability is high. :tears:

 

I havent watch last night's ep with subs. I might cry a river when I watch with subs. Jang Nara brought me to tears in Go Back Spouses. She cries so sadly and so beautifully. Huhuhu

Honestly I'm annoyed at how this show is ending. Really annoyed. NWS possibly dying is soooo annoying to me as well as the Emperor possibly dying even though I don't like him much. This whole drama has driven me nuts.

@ChewyChocolate

It is a possibility, but if the guy in bandage is NS in the teaser, it means he survived the explosion so I think Hyuk is most likely alive... 
It seems that Hyuk will die because he wrote a will...

Right? If they got cctv for this one, they could have cctv of yura hitting nws mom too. 

 

They actually shown the cctv recording of Yura hiting NWS's mum before. Ma pil joo had it. But i don't recall what happened to that cctv recording.

 

But the new cctv of the accident is weird. It would be more believable if the recording was from the Hyuk's truck black box. Hua3

In all honesty, I find the Emperor a much more interesting character than Na Wang Sik. I totally get the emperor. 

 

Growing up without love and being abused constantly makes a person who crave love the most to easily be manipulated. A person who craves and desires to be loved so much can easily be enamored by anyone who would bestow even the tiniest love-like or care-like behaviour or attitude upon him/her. Lucky if the other person or people are good people who would direct this person to the right direction or path but a tragedy when the person or people are bad because they would direct this person to the wrong path.

 

My only dislike with the writing of this story is how even after it's discovered that it is the ED and that Nanny who started and orchestrated all the bad things that happened everyone is still only hating on the Emperor. It just does not make sense to me at all. Even Min Yu Ra's iniquities have been totally forgotten. How is it that Sunny and Na Wang Sik can easily forgive Min Yu Ra but not the Emperor? Is being vengeful (out for revenge) a better quality to have as a human-being than being merciful and just?  

 

For me the story of this KDrama is not just about me being for Team Emperor or Team Na Wang Sik or Team Sunny. For me the story of this KDrama is about my self-reflection and self-discovery. Like for example I reflect on the differences between the villains - how ED and Nanny are the sort of bad people who have no remorse whatsoever, they do not feel guilt or feel apologetic about what bad they have done or what bad they are doing. The Emperor is the sort of villain that has become bad because of the programming he has been subjected to since he was a kid, he knew only of this because it is what he was trained and taught how to be and so now that he saw another side he is finally slowly realizing the wrongness of what he was trained for or taught. I get why the Emperor flip flops - it's because he is in that stage wherein he is so very conflicted or confused. Imagine how it is for a person who only knew this one certain way of doing things ever since he was born because it is how he was trained to do them or taught to do them. Then suddenly comes another person who does it a different way, the opposite of what he was trained or taught? Wouldn't you be conflicted and confused as well? As for the heroes of the story my distaste was the revenge part. You might be a good person but the lust for revenge might ruin you. Sometimes not being able to forgive and let go of the anger can also be bad. All in all it made me reflect and realize how humans are not at all black and white - not good or bad. Humans walk in this grayish area wherein we could be both.

So... 

How to end the Imperial Family is... make Sunny re-marry other person, just similar to Empress Eun a.k.a Michelle Eun case.

 

Maybe this also an example how to end Imperial Family, no heir from the Empress.. 

 

Absolutely,, Lee Hyuk must die first. 

 

If Lee Hyuk die, maybe Sunny will be re-unite with Na Wang Shik (with the mummy appearance :ph34r: )

 

The end of imperial family... 

No one wish the throne, both Lee Yoon or A Ri.

 

The Last Empress and Empress Dignity...

SAME THOUGHT HERE. Everyone's dying! New trend, TLE? First NWS and then the Emperor...

 

I kind of hope that Hyuk doesn't die. Part of me understands him (not the killing part, thank you) but the part that is misunderstood. He locked Sunny up today because he didn't want her to die like Empress So-hyun before her. Hyuk covered for her and Sunny covered for him (even though if one could argue that she didn't really want to) in the bombing. ED IS INSANE. I'm pretty sure we all knew that. She's NUTS... I really can't wait for the finale. Again, I hope Hyuk doesn't die... I'll cry if he does!

Finally the end comes to TLE. I don't think I have ever watched a makjang before and only did it because of JNR. Have to admit it's quite fun though sometimes a bit OTT :sweatingbullets:

 

This drama is the only one I am currently watching so it's gonna be quite boring after this. Maybe I should catch-up on The Crowned Clown...

Thank you...

 

Who is the bandage man siluette?

Why he must fight?

Is he escape or something?

 

I don't think its Lee Hyuk... Is that represent of Na Wang Shik, but... I think it's on the palace, is Sunny hide a man, I don't think so.. 
 

So, no one gettin crazy :sweatingbullets: just punished in the court (dunno how many time they must be jailed, or ever death punishment). 

SKH maybe get death punishment, so she ask forgiveness by unite her hand together, wish she can alive. 

 

Sunny come into the Lee Hyuk chamber ... no it's maybe her chamber now. After Lee Hyuk die, she get all his authority.

The show is trying to totally redeem Yura. But I want her to be punished too. She is in the wrong the same as Hyuk. 

 

 

Yes i think it's totally redeem Min Yu Ra, it make sense now... 

 

She come to the palace for revenge toward imperial family, and make herself just like Na Wang Shik, and Sunny. She even not afraid if she must die. This make her come back to the palace in many times, she is in and out from the palace, when she kicked or fired, she still come back again and again

1) she fired by ED (she use LH lust to come back)

2) she kick out by ED (she ask help from GED)

3) she locked in dungeon will be expelling from the palace by Sunny (she make LH help her)

4) she burn by LH (she ask help from ED)

In almost ending episode we know if she also victim of imperial family. 

 

Actually, although Na Wang Shik is a victim, Na Wang Shik even kill Ma Pil Jo, steal, manipulating So Jin to give him authority to the financial account. Shouldn't he must get punishment? What's he done is not a criminality?

 

Min Yu Ra crime is attempt to kill, and cover the crime. 

 

The difference between Min Yu Ra and also Na Wang Shik is Yu Ra fight alone but NWS make a lot of alliance. NWS have plan, and also have a support from Byun. He work so detail.

 

Can you imagine how hard Yu Ra for a long time when she need to fight alone for many years? She just can think about lust of Lee Hyuk that can control him.

 

Her wrong doing is make another victim of the imperial family, but NWS help the victim of imperial family. 

 

Min Yu Ra wanna get what Sunny get right now, to make herself ruin the imperial family, but she also make a way to Sunny come to the imperial family.

Yeah. The new preview seems to be he is disabled or will he commit suicide? I really hope he doesn't kill himself. I can do with other bad scenarios but not suicide.

So Lee Hyuk lock Sunny is really to make her save from his mother, if Sunny not coming, maybe the incident never happen, but.... 

His personality is coward, he's not change at all, he don't dare to reveal the truth... admit his wrong doing... 

 

I think Lee Hyuk already predict the bad condition in the future, so he wish to left all authority to Sunny. Even Sunny said to "her" about Lee Hyuk last moment. And I think Lee Hyuk is die saving Sunny.. the last bomb when he carry Sunny in front of the door, maybe make he in a bad injuries in his back.

 

When he said he'll jump to the fire several eps ago, is this really happen? When Lee Hyuk wish the time stand still is sign of his die. 

 

Hope no more plot twist.. 

Make Lee Hyuk fake his death.. and change his face... :joy:

 

Spoiler

Wow ,Hyuk may pretend to be Wang Shik...
