So what do guys think, after watching episode 9? Why do you guys think that General Ma wants to trick Consort Cho's hand in order to assasinate the king? What are of his intentions, or is he under his own will? Obviously, i don't think if he successfully killed the king would have made himself the emperor. He is evil, that's for sure. So is he doing this for his own selfish ambitions or is someone above him had ordered him to do that? As for Tavia's actions, do you think that when she revealed to the Grand Empress that Consort Cho fed the medicine to the king has made him terribly ill, that she was truly trying to save her own people, or does she have evil intentions of being jealous of Consort Cho's sudden skyrocketed fortune and power, and wants to undermine her and see her tragic end?
