The slave camp really is, as the characters say, "hell on earth." It's very difficult to watch those scenes, even knowing it is "just" a TV show. Not only are they heartbreaking, but much of the guards' psychology/sociology seems realistic.
I think it will turn out to be an advantage for Princess Sukyoung and Auhong to work in the palace laundry. They have opportunities to "borrow" clothing for other uses.
Has anyone else noticed how the Tang emperor gets sicker and sicker after the empress gives him his herbal potion?
Will General Heit end up assissting in DJY's rescue? The narrative captions left that part up in the air. I wonder if Go Sagae will help, or if he'll just disappear from the scene.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch...how is that boneheaded Namseng managing Liaodang?

LOL - Namseng - seems like we see him every 15th episode or so.
I so agree with you that scenes at the slave camp are very difficult to watch. I also think it's amazing that the poor slaves are beaten senseless and they continue to get up, and live. No broken backs, no cracked heads... it's amazing.
And yes, the Tang Emporer does seem to become more diminished after Empress Chick ministers to him. And isn't her son a charmer? Lucky Li and Chulin. Cute new braids for Li Kaigu must mean a higher rank and more responsibility.
Mimosa has such gonads in approaching Heit for help. I have to believe his argument will at last, be accepted by Heit.
Biggest question right now at 12:45pm on Tuesday afternoon, is what happens tonite?
geema Your hands are so pretty. Your cheeks are so pretty." Eunha answers back to Andrea, "You are pretty all over".
It is a "hell on earth", pip...a family member of mine remarked it was like the Korean Gulag centuries back. It was very hard for me to watch.
DJY, Sudol, and Mapa sure made those slaves angry when he threw...er...toilet water on their food.
So you noticed too, pip, the Tang Emperor getting sicker after his potions? I wonder...the Empress murdered her own daughter, and the Crown Prince is out of her way---I wouldn't see why she wouldn't try to get the Emperor out of commission as well!
Speaking of the Crown Prince---to me, he's like a little child! "Li Kaigu was it?.....tell me a story!" (anyone get a load of Kaigu's reaction? Looked like he was tempted to use his "Elvis lip"...)
Your biggest question, kathleen, is my biggest question as well: at 6:39 this afternoon I am wondering the same thing---what's goin' to happin ?
