[Drama 2018-2019] Empress Dignity / The Last Empress, 황후의 품격

Recommended Posts

What the emperor needs is a psychologist and a psychiatrist.  He is mentally bruised from the physical abuse from his father and the mental abuse from his overbearing, power hungry, crazy mother.  It is sad to say, but he is badly damaged.   He did love his first wife, but he was overly jealous of her (a mental condition).  When he was distraught after arguing with his wife and pushing her, (she fell in the water, however, it did not seem to be too deep),  He was distraught and what did his mother do?   She told him, something to the effect of it is alright the baby isn't yours anyway...WHAT!  She did not show any sympathy, no comfort, nothing. How can he be sane?  When he accidentally run over WB's mother because she walked out in from of the vehicle, what did YR do, cover up for him.  What he did not know, she was covering for herself because WB's mother would not have walked out into the road like that if she had not been hit in the head by YR.  Sunny is the only one that will not tolerate his bad behavior.  While Sunny can't cure the emperor he needs professional help, she can steer him in the right direction.   What a dysfunctional family; I think the royal family need group therapy, because they are all coo-coo for coco puffs.  It is a good thing that it is a constitutional monarchy.  The country would be in disarray

I thought she died from being pushed into the water too, but it was just a pond and didn't look very deep.  I'm not sure if that killed her or not.  Evil mother probably had something to do with it too.  Although, she seemed surprised, she could have been faking it in order to hold it over the Emperors head.  She is very conniving.  Also, when WS's mother was killed, the Emperor seemed to be really upset and remorseful.  I can't understand him sometimes.  He has a really bad temper but can be so sweet and sometimes seems innocent.  The actor is doing an amazing job with this role.

 

 

I think Empress SH died when LH pushed her into the water.  Yes, the water was not very deep, but a person can drown in a cup of water.  First, he choked her, so she's already having trouble breathing.  Then he pushed her.  She was wearing a full hanbok with all the petticoats and underlayers and let me tell you, the real traditional hanboks (not the more modern ones with zippers) are not comfortable.  They are extremely bulky and she seems to be wearing the heavier winter weight.  That's a lot of material to get waterlogged, and the Empress looked heavily pregnant and she would have difficulty righting herself when she fell backward into the pond.  It could be that the pond is just deep enough that she's not really touching bottom when in a prone or sitting position that she is able to push herself upright.

 

I think that LH pushed her and started walking away and then ran back when he realized that the splashing had stopped.  And, instead of running in then to help her, he just stared at her.

 

Also, when WS' mother was first hit by LH's car, LH's first and immediate reaction was annoyance, not OMG what did I just do.

If I remember correctly, Empress SH was already not moving when LH walked away, so yeah, he did kill her, because he was consumed by his jealousy and went off in a daze. If he didn't daze out, he could probably still save her as soon as she fell into the water... This is not the first time an empress died in a pond. There was another drama long time back with empress dying in the pond (clue: time traveling and colorful track suits)

In LH's defense, he wasn't in the right state of mind when he pushed her into the pond. That's what I think. He should have owned up and grieved for his mistake, which actually he did think he killed her and blamed himself. It was the ED who kept telling him otherwise and tried to cover it up.

I know a lot of fans like the chemistry of emperor and Sunny thus they want they end up together and put so many excuses for what he has done such as miseducation, pressure etc. But, guys...his brother is not as crazy as him. I understand the impact of his mother's influence fully. But still, he's mentally weak. That's why he just follow what he wants and what his mom's said. See, when he killed WS's mom, Yura was the one helping him out. When he tried to kill his late wife, his mom came and comforting him lol...  I'm sure when he knows Sunny secretly in love with Wang Sik, he also try to force her. If Sunny should end up with someone, it should be Woo Bin because he was the one who always protects her from the beginning even that time he didn't have any feelings for her at all. For me, I wanna know all the mystery they have in the drama before we get too many romance.

If I recall, that "empress" ate poisoned persimmons first and then I think her body was dumped in the pond to make it look like a drowning.  Also, wasn't it the empress' sister?

Ahh that’s possible especially after what the nanny said,I’m still unsure who  it is but it could very well be like the Murder on The Orient Express , where a few had a hand in her death.

 

New stills ..oh sbs is selling the love line or just trolling with our hearts?

You could be right... it's been a long time so I don't remember the details very well. All I remember is the drowning... :sweatingbullets:

 

Whoaaa, looks like we're in for another crazy wild ride tonight... I am not sure if I can live stream or not. Came home a bit late tonight so still have a bit of chores to do before I can be in front of the laptop... Wish I have some palace servants to help me :P

Yeah sure we dont know rather he was the one that actually  killed her but he did try to choke her and push her in the water he is an abusive person and really horrible to all of the women in his life.

I have the same thought. He seems to sincerely love his first empress which is why he was blinded by jealousy planted by his mother. And I dont believe drown is the cause of her death. It was recorded as heart attack. They simply say she was walking alone when she fell & drown but I think someone has been slowly poisoning her, just as she has been poisoning the queen abt the so call affairs which eventually poison the king's mind abt his wife havung affair. Who wud benefit the most if the heavily pregnant empress died? Certainly its a lost to ED if the empress was carrying a prince as she wud have another puppet to control. And who desperately wanted to pass the law of allowing a princess to rule?

 

My bet nanny Seo is behind of the royal death. She betrayed her best friend & slept with her husband, the king & later claim to be carrying his chikd when I suspect Ari is not even a royalty. The DNA test must have forged. Nanny Seo is very capable, if she can seduce the PM, betrayed he bf, trick a ling into sleeping with her, what is a mere lab tester to her.

 

All the death happened just at the right time...after she slept with the king, the empress was found dead. Sure king tried to strangle her & leave her in the pond but I dont think its that simple. With her & the unborn child death, opening a way for Seo but the king refused ti have anything to do with her or her child. Later she use Sunny to reveal to the granny empress who insist to acknowledge Ari as the king's daughter, she has no use for granny especially when she insist re open investigation on former empress death, or else why wud she sneak in into granny's room. I bet she's the one who thrust the pin to granny, seeing that the king & ED fail to do so. As to who poison her it cud be between her or Yura. All the unexplained death happen after king slept with Nanny Seo. ED maybe evil & greed but I dont believe she wud actually murder a royal or royal family member, or else she wud have murder Sunny instead of going a long way trying to push her our from the royals
