"Immigrants built this nation."
Thank you Tal Tal you are now my favourite character. This one sentence speaks so much to me. Especially since I live in the UK and see so much disrespect towards immigrants, I will always respect people who puts nationalism aside and promotes the economic growth of a nation regardless of the ethnicities of its people.
With only a few episodes left, SN’s authority can only be strong enough to remove Bayan if she has Tal Tal behind her. With all these new things against SN, like TH knowing about Maha, SN ruling in TH’s position without his consent, the governors’ uneasiness that 2 eunuchs were given such powerful positions… it’s all up to Tal Tal to pull things out of his hat. Like he did with the info on Bayan’s men. In the end with 2 brains against 0, they’ll win the game for sure. I’m sure the whole Eagle house/Golta/Bayan/Yom Byungsoo thing will make Bayan lose trust all the more quickly. TH will have his taste of ultimate vulnerability when he finds out about Golta and will have no one but SN to turn to.
Also can’t wait to see Tal Tal/Seung Nyang finally kick some ass together. Unlike the Empress Dowager/Bayan who are all about killing and ousting, these two know how to strategise. They know that victory is not the death of their enemies. Death is too good for them.
Finally Bayan’s tyrannical side is showing, it’s like a more brawny and empty headed El Temur is back in the game. Teaming up with Eagle house just like El Temur did, wanting to get rid of everyone on SN’s side no matter whether they’re good for the nation or not, he’s already in decline. Remember when he told Tal Tal to kill him if he becomes like El Temur, I wait for the day Tal Tal uses that very sentence against him.
I’m so sick of Tahwan being all like ‘what is good for me is good for Yuan’, bullshit, he’s so weak, caring only about people’s loyalty to him, but what has he done to deserve that loyalty? He keeps telling SN to shush because he’s scared of facing the truth. How can he say ‘I trust Bayan will restore this nation’ when he’s looking at all those starving people in front of him? Absolutely useless, he expects so much from other people when he’s done nothing for them. Even those ‘loyal’ to him now have their own interests, while he has no interest other than being SEEN as a influential emperor. But he isn’t even lifting a finger to do anything!! I’ve never liked him as much as Wang Yoo and now he’s just getting on my nerves… I just hope that before the finale he’ll actually stand up to do something for SN, for anyone in fact and not be an complete waste of my time.
