I have faith in the one who is trustworthy.
Ga-ram and Myung-jin arrive at his office surprised to discover Min Jae-yi waiting for them. Min Jae-yi is hoping Myung-jin will assist her with the Cardinal Point case.
Min Jae-yi wants to see if there was anything on the body that was not discovered during the initial investigation. She had already discussed this with the Crown Prince, who had promised to send someone to dig the body.
Scholar Park was described by the Crown Prince as a tall, handsome guy who has many abilities that have never been seen before in Joseon. When Scholar Park arrives at the meeting point, Min Jae-yi is surprised to learn that it is the crown prince.
Sung-on is worried about the talisman, but he must prioritize the Cardinal Point case. A soldier updates him about the possible targets the murderer might target. Sung-on is later informed that the eunuch is exhuming the body of the second victim and he is displeased.
A letter is resentfully given to a court lady stating that Go Soon-dol is not an eunuch. He is a soldier who the Crown Prince brought in on the day of the royal hunt. The Queen also tries to visit the Crown Prince but is told that he has locked himself in the library to study.
Myung-jin notices a stab wound on the victim after he was long deceased. They also notice writing on his hands and learn that the killer is on a revenge mission.
The Crown Prince is surprised that Min Jae-yi can hold her drink. Later, Ga-ram visits a drunk Myung-jin in his own home. He does not get treated as a genius in his household because he has no government position.
The Crown Prince and Min Jae-yi chat about the game while the troops are on patrol. Min Jae-yi admits she finds it interesting and they predict that whoever gets caught first will get finger-flicked. They also discuss the case and Min Jae-yi admits that she was disappointed that she had to face Sung-on.
Min Jae-yi apologizes for blaming him for her family's death and that she did so because she fears.
Min Jae-yi encourages the Crown Prince to pay his friend a visit after a curfew in disguise and that he brought eunuch Soon-dol. Sung-on decides to show the Crown Prince the talisman sold by Oh Man Shik and confesses that he lied. The Crown Prince is surprised that Sung-on has lied to him to protect his father.
Sung-on urges him to be understanding of the thought process his father used to deceive the Crown Prince on the royal hunt. He assures him that he would return clean in the morning and that he would always be on his side. The Crown Prince tells him that he gave up on friendship the moment he took the throne.
Min Jae-yi intercepts their conversation and is eavesdropped by the patrol officers. She is eventually released by the Crown Prince.
The Crown Prince seizes the opportunity to discover who among his Court officials betrayed him. Things get tense in the Queen's palace. Three court ladies badmouth Prince Myungan and lose their temper. He beats them up and orders them to be brutally beaten before being expelled from the palace.
He subtly states that he will ensure that Prince Myungan becomes the king. The Queen asks him to step up and become the most powerful woman in Joseon.
Min Jae-yi tries to comprehend the messages left by the killer. It dawns on her that the killer meant something different, not just the Song family, but all four stages of life. She suspects that the killer will attack a pregnant woman who is about to give birth.
She tries to communicate with the Crown Prince but the soldiers prevent her from entering since the Crown Prince is already asleep. She leaves a message for him and quickly updates Sung-on. They quickly dispatch troops to protect pregnant women in the East. He and Min Jae-yi also go to the scene together and arrive just in time to save a woman who had just delivered.
Min Jae-yi is hurt in their struggle with the killer, but Sung-on is able to subdue the killer and capture her. Surprisingly, Min Jae-yi is a shaman who is killing to exact her vengeance. The Crown Prince arrives to discover Min Jae-yi was found unconscious on the ground. She tells the Crown Prince that the messenger's murders and her family are not his fault.
The Crown Prince assures Sung-on that he was afraid to death that she was hurt. He picks her up and refuses to allow Sung-on to carry her. He assures Sung-on that he trusts Soon-dol and he cannot allow anyone else to carry him.
Sung-on was profoundly affected by his words. He is probably wondering why the Crown Prince refuses to trust him. In all fairness, he was a bit conflicted by the talisman, but I believe he was going to disclose the truth. Anyone will be influenced by his words, whether or not they are limited.
Min Jae-yi and the Crown Prince are growing closer, and it is becoming apparent that he loves her. I loved the slow-motion moments when they were forced to be so close to one another.
Jo Won-bo intends to murder the Crown Prince as expected, but isn't sure if he's the one responsible for the ghost letters. I'm more interested in the identity of the soldier and the court lady who are secretly trading information in the palace.
