Kang Joo Sun (Jo Sung Ha) pledges to stand with the King for the credentials to be sent under the promise of the marriage and return of the evidence of the conspiracy against Gwanghae.
On the day of an official announcement about the royal marriage, Yeo Jung lures Jeongmyeong into a trap saying that Gwanghae is waiting for her in a secret place. She realizes that she is caught in the trap on her way to the house but she passes out due to a deadly poison.
Jeongmyeong is falling to the floor in a barn, nearly unconscious. Kim Ja Jeom calls her name in a quite voice to wake her up.
