Ooo, flashback to when they were kids. LH can't read the books very well. Yoon was able to, and the parents are so happy and praised him. LH looked rather upset at Yoon. Seems like Yoon is a more potential candidate as Emperor.

Madness overcame LH. He saw the tv scene that reminded him of how he is more inferior than Yoon, and he just smashed the tv with a golf club, I think.

Perhaps that explains why LH's mother is so protective of him.  She feels she has to help him, rule the country.  It would also explain why she did not want him to marry YR.   YR is easily manipulating the emperor. She really doesn't care about him, the country, or the institution of the monarchy, she only cares for herself and living a grand lifestyle.

Perhaps he is coming from another angle.  He can see Sunny hurting and he wants her to stop at the same time he has to do something to throw suspicion off of him.

Man!! Sunni is getting betrayed and used all over the place. It is really breaking my heart.

The one thing is that with WS is that it seems to be getting to him seeing her get trampled and used, even by himself. I think that while he did betray her and set her up, WS will most likely use this to let her exactly see the treachery of her husband. WS will rat him out. plus what is a better way to destroy Sunnie's love for LH than to realize that her husband schemed to frame her as the adulterer in the relationship. Also I think that in small ways WS will start looking out for her more and more behind the scenes (He is already becoming more concerned about her).  Plus he is having to watch her first hand go through this whole ordeal and her reaction. He is seeing more and more how she is just a victim like him. I think that for a while she will be angry at WS and shut him out, but since we have seen he has a soft spot for people, I think he will continue to watch out for her secretly until she breaks down.

Yeah pretty much this does not help his reputation at all either,they are in a weird position now.She  is going to hate him for awhile but in the long I think she see it was for the best either way

7 Game-Changing Moments From âThe Last Empressâ Episodes 9-12

 

7 Game-Changing Moments From “The Last Empress” Episodes 9-12

The Last Empress” is full of more twists and turns than we ever thought possible, and Episodes 9-12 were no exception. This week we saw shifting alliances, shocking revelations, and the development of new relationships. Characters are starting to show different sides of themselves, and in a drama that has so much incredibly intense plot, we’re pleasantly surprised to find that “The Last Empress” is really delivering on the character growth as well! The battle is on for power, life, and love in the palace, so here are seven ways characters changed the game in this week’s episodes.

Warning: spoilers for Episodes 9-12 below! Proceed with caution.

1. When Yoo Ra was caught red-handed

It’s hard to get privacy in the palace, but Emperor Hyuk (Shin Sung Rok) and Min Yoo Ra (Lee Elijah) are hardly discreet about their illicit relationship. Now that the Grand Empress Dowager (Park Won Sook) has found out about their affair, Yoo Ra has one less friend in the palace. This doesn’t really matter as long as she has Hyuk on her side, but making enemies of the rest of the royal family will likely come back to bite her in the future!

I must admit my first reaction while watching the end scene was to kick WS. Seriously seeing that look in Sunni's eyes when she realized this whole situation was not a simple misunderstanding... The moment this realization dawned on her even before WS could articulate it. I was like  Arggggggh! She was betrayed TWICE by the people she trusted most! That's just too cruel.

But later when emotions died down a little, I realized this may be WS's twisted way of protecting Sunni?

Yes, he surely kills two birds with one stone and it so damn wrong of him to do so but wasn't LH commanding him to get rid of Sunni as a way to prove his loyalty? He never elaborated what he meant by get rid of (though I do believe he meant it literary). But WS opted to get rid of the Empress figuratively  by totally destroying her reputation. And that redeems him a little (just a little bit). I mean if WS hadn't volontureed for the task LH could have made someone else to do it. And there is no guarantee WS would be able to protect Sunni then.

Looks like theacher Byun was mistaken and SW can act despicable.

 

But even though I know that Sunni will come to understand the reasons behind WS's actions I still want him to get some good beating from her. -_-

@ktcjdrama  @Matilda_Anne  @nakatsubebe

Thank you so much for the live recaps.  I am always amazed about anyone who is able to do live recaps, typing while a live streaming.  :sweatingbullets:    Yes I know when I read live caps I will find about a spoiler  but that’s tradeoff.  But most of time even if I came to know about a spoiler, it didn’t diminish enjoying a drama viewing.   Sometimes knowing about a spoiler made me less FF.   :)


Now I have to trust the writer about WB’s surprise betrayal acting with Sunny.  The writer should have a very very sound reason for WB’s nasty behavior.  If WB did it because he wanted to earn trust from LH,  I would want to give a good pounding on the table.   hehe  :tears:

I ended up reading another recap of the episodes and it was mentioned that LH asked WS to get rid of Sunny...now whether he meant to actually kill her or destroy her reputation, I am not sure as I still need the subtitles to know. But it that is the case, being betrayed is certainly much better than actually dying.

Could this relate to why the corpse was found in the beginning of the show???

Oh! What if the reason that grandma queen dies is because she was protecting Sunny and it was supposed to originally be her???

Hi everyone first time posting here

So NWS killed MPJ and used his body to get attention away from him. But wouldn´t the other noticed that he is missing? They wouldn´t just forget about him just like that.

 

Also thinking about the title of the drama. Maybe at the end of this drama the monarchy will come to an end and thus Ssuni will be the last empress. 

 

It was so mean of the drama crew to not give us a preview after such a cliffhanger :P...looking forward to tomorrow´s episode.

Woot woot! Congrats to TLE team!

 

That cliffhanger was unexpected. I know he has good intention but can’t help but hate Woo Bin now.

 

I don’t know how Sunny is going to fight the evil emperor team now as she seems not to have anyone on her side except the Grand Empress Dowager.

 

Seems like the Emperor would catch them red-handed.

last.png

 

Article: Naver 'The Last Empress' Jang Na Ra involved in a secret relationship with Choi Jin Hyuk in his self-fabricated story.. plot twist 'backstab' 

1. [+138,-1]
It's such an interesting makjang. ㅋㅋㅋ If I were to write a makjang script as interesting as this, I think my heart would hurt. ㅋㅋ

2. [+87,-0]
Kim Sun Ok, you............ 


3. [+67,-3]
This is too much!!!! Of course, it would be funnier if Cheon Woo Bin falls for Oh Ssu Ni suddenly.. but Cheon Woo Bin is using Oh Ssu Ni for revenge... Hoo.. The Empress is so pitiful. But still, it's interesting. To enjoy refreshing food properly, you'd have to eat sweet potatoes [t/n: sweet potatoes = frustrating story/plot] in a warm place first before eating at a cooling place. That would be the best. 


4. [+56,-4]
This is frustrating. ㅠㅠ


5. [+45,-5]
Ssu Ni-ya, let's walk the dark path. ㅠㅠ 


6. [+26,-1]
Wow, the scriptwriter is such a genius. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ This is so interesting. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It doesn't make sense, but it does. 


7. [+21,-2]
Looks like there's a reason why she's popular~~ The scriptwriter really writes well~~ There are no boring parts~


8. [+20,-6]
Lee Elijah's acting is so good that she made me so angry.. It feels like I'm watching some morning drama. 


9. [+14,-0]
Actor Choi Jin Hyuk's acting is so good!~ I think Woo Bin has a big picture. Going to see Choi Jin Hyuk tomorrow too~ 


10. [+14,-1]
I think there's some kind of plot twist at the end. Choi Jin Hyuk might have talked to Jang Na Ra about it too...

Article: Naver 'The Last Empress' Oh Seung Yoon runs away in his underwear when Shin Eun Kyung looks for him 

1. [+167,-5]
Today's interesting too~~ Choi Jin Hyuk is amazing at the end~~ It may be for revenge, but Jang Na Ra is pitiful. ㅠㅠ


2. [+116,-7]
Shin Eun Kyung's acting is jjang. 


3. [+90,-8]
I know that Jang Na Ra is good at acting, but she didn't lose in that war of nerves today. I had goosebumps... I'm so thankful that she's the Empress. I hope she gets an award this year!!! 


4. [+79,-6]
The ending was frustrating. ㅠㅠ Choi Jin Hyuk, don't do that. ㅠㅠㅠ


5. [+20,-0]
Ah~~~ It's frustrating. I feel like hitting Min Yoo Ra.


6. [+20,-0]
Is Choi Jin Hyuk serious? Is he looking at the big picture? 


7. [+16,-1]
The woman who tried to jump into the sea, is that Kara?? Park Gyu Ri? 


8. [+15,-0]
Jang Na Ra's acting is so charismatic today!!! I think Choi Jin Hyuk is looking at a big picture too. It's fun~~~~

Welcome to the crazy but fun ride with the Last Empress thread. 

Very good question about the MPJ. I hope the writer didn't expect the audiences to assume both MPJ and WS died in the explosion because that would lead to the question as to why they both were in a car together. Somehow, sometimes, the writer will need to tie up all loose ends.

 when will sunny start her revenge?! im getting impatient here 

 

You have to give the girl time to grow up, to change and to get familiarized with the game in the palace :D Plus, they still have 17 1 hour episode left for Sunny to create chaos and clean up the mess. :D

 

ps EngSub for ep 7 (or 13-14) is out if anyone is interested. Just downloaded it. Will save it to watch altogether with the next episode.
