yoohwa and haemosu reunite after 20 years. yoohwa tells haemosu how she saw him blinded and crucified but
at the time she was already pregnant with his child and in order to keep haemosu's blood alive she said nothing to stay alive.

jumong would be told about his real father now. yoohwa continues by saying she will live with him and their child jumong together
for the rest of their lives. haemosu says no jumong must not know he is the father since he has not done anything for jumong
these years and the only father jumong will know is geumwa. haemosu also states he is a threat to the state of buyeo and he

she wishes to leave the palace to spend the rest of her life with haemosu. king geumwa tells yoohwa to bring haemosu to him
and he will make sure haemosu and yoohwa can live well together the rest of their lives. yoohwa says she cannot ask anymore
favors from geumwa and haemosu would want to live in humbleness so yoohwa asks the king to let her go instead, but geumwa
insists he cannot and says he will meet with haemosu himself to persuade him to agree with him.
haemosu and jumong
are practing shooting arrow and jumong shoots 3 arrows on target. at this haemosu compliments jumong saying he did a great
job and jumong replies he was named jumong by his mother because jumong is the blood of his father who was great at shooting
arrows. haemosu teaches jumong never fail to protect the woman of his life as he failed, that if one could not protect the
one close to him he will not be able to protect the lives of hundreds of citizens. jumong nods and haemosu urges jumong he
must protect his mother who must be wise and graceful. jumong says yes and haemosu then tells him to go see his mother even
for a split second from distance at once and jumong agrees. haemosu who fights back his tears bidding farewell to jumong then
asks jumong to bring wine on his way back and walk slowly to get there. jumong says yes and promises to bring wine and meat

and calls out for his master but haemosu's body is no where to be found and jumong only sees the stick haemosu always carried
with him. jumong weeps by his master's stick in grief.
geumwa remembers the day before battle 20 years ago when haemosu
asks geumwa to look after yoohwa if anything should happen to him in battle, and how if haemosu were to die he wishes geumwa
to throw his body over the cliff. yoohwa holds onto haemosu's hand and asks him to please say something to her... geumwa watches
yoohwa weeping over haemosu and says they should let haemosu go in peace now. yoohwa is unable to let the body go and continues
to beg the already dead haemosu to talk to her. geumwa orders the maids to take yoohwa away and she faints while weeping.

yeomieul is angered. budeukul says he has no regret for what he did was but to protect the king. yeomieul says the king will
surely find out who killed haemosu, but budeukbul says even so the king will not kill his own son prince daeso who actually
killed haemosu even though it was budeukbul's idea.
meanwhile jumong tells the trio around him to leave and says haemosu
who was imprisoned without knowing why was killed because of relation with jumong. back in buyeo palace the queen wants to
see for herself how yoohwa looks when she's ill and insists on going to see yoohwa even when yoohwa says she will not have
visitors. the queen tells yoohwa she should get well soon but laughs at yoohwa privately saying she must be torn apart seeing
that the lover of her lifetime died, but vows it is not the end of yoohwa's misfortune for she the queen will make sure yoohwa
the king is trying to find out who killed haemosu and prince youngpo goes to tell daeso about the king going after
the army men they used. prince youngpo insists she didn't even know that man was haemosu, and prince daeso says he will take
all the responsibility so youngpo mustn't worry. the king summons prince youngpo and demands him to answer if he used the
army men to kill haemosu. just then prince daeso arrives and asks all the men in the king's court to leave. the king talks
to daeso in private and daeso kneels before the king and confesses he was the one who told the innocent youngpo to take the
200 army men, and he prince daeso was the one who killed general haemosu. the king draws his sword toward daeso and daeso
says he did it to protect their nation, that the han nation would've surely gone after buyeo if they found out king geumwa
was protecting haemosu who is considered a dead enemy to the han nation. the king is unable to kill his own son after hearing
daeso's words and orders daeso to disappear before him at once. daeso leaves and budeukbul tells daeso he showed the courage
of a buyeo prince and budeukbul vows to be daeso's loyal servant from this day forward.
geumwa visits yoohwa and sees how weak she is but says he's too ashamed to even tell her to get well. geumwa leaves
and orders his assistant to go find jumong at once and bring him back to the palace.

person, but soseono replies whether or not jumong is useless is still to be determined. jumong parties his days away with
wine and women while musong and mari watch. buyoung goes to look for jumong and sees him crying out in frustration, after
sending over the prostitute he spent the night with. buyoung is heartbroken by jumong wasting his life away and asks him why
