Legend Episode 16, recap

Stuff happens. The end.

Just kidding. ๐Ÿ˜€

Episode 16

Now Kiha’s putting armour on Ho Gae. He’s being used! And he doesn’t care! WTF!

His troops move out and there is lots of slaughter. (And conquering, of course.) The people he’s conquering look Mongolian. He’s all bloodlusty (and that opposing army was small.)

On Damduk’s side of things, the citizenry who surrendered to him are panicking because the Baekje army is returning. Now the Guh Mool clan also know that Ba Son’s brother has the symbol of the white tiger, and that he is in the north. The others blame her for not telling him, but she in fact intended to tell him after the campaign in Gwanmi.

Ba Son and Dalbi are kidnapped, however, and presumably transported to Ho Gae. Jumuchi and the Julno chief lead their men to rescue the girls but are stalled at the gates by panicky villagers.

Due to the political situation in Baekje (prince and usurper battling it out), Damduk thinks he can handle the army as long as they mislead the opponents. He’s so nice, he lets the Baekje soldiers out to protect the citizenry. Jumuchi has a heart-to-heart with Damduk and decides to stay, choosing Damduk over Dalbi.

HA. At night, the Gwanmi overlord stalks Sujini. (Either that, or she’s gone over the edge of insanity.) She gets drunk by the pool. (Lol, he actually is following her.) When she gets drunk, she’s really funny. Overlord person just watches. I am kind of creeped out, but at least Sujini now has a ‘Sa Ryang’ to match Kiha.

In the morning, everyone is relieved to hear that the 30,000-strong Baekje army has gone home.

I always laugh to see the Hwacheon’s secret headquarters. I mean, it’s huge. It’s totally not secret. But whatever. Yay, Kiha wearing red, is opposing creepy Hwacheon dude in black. (Even her eyeshadow is red, so wah.)

Damduk eschews going north to find Ba Son and Dalbi in favour of returning to the Goguryo capital. Gwanmi overlord person decides to follow (Does he have a name? I can’t just keep calling him the Gwanmi overlord.)

Hyungo protests, but Damduk needs to do damage control in the capital after Kiha’s takeover, and so they go back. Obviously there are ulterior motives, but we’re not saying anything. Plus, the dead Oracle warned him that if there was a new oracle before the year is out, that oracle will be his enemy.

Hwacheon isn’t too worried, as the symbol Damduk possesses isn’t awakening. Go conditional release. Omg, Yon and Hwacheon dude together is almost too much evil to bear. Kiha is … just into too much eyeliner. Goth!Kiha is totally plotsome.

There’s some random thing about purifying himself of the killings and leaving his army outside the walls. Hmph. So now Damduk is to enter the city unprotected.

(I don’t get Hwacheon dude’s constant hand gesture. He’s just … holding them aloft.)

(Aha, this is during the period of time when central China was split between many clans, and went through tons of upheaval.)

Yon, not being completely blinded by power, sees something disturbing in Hwacheon’s alliance with the Chinese Wei. But like, combined evil fumes from Kiha and Hwacheon dude overpowers him. And it’s not like he actually has a choice.

Ho Gae is running around, slaughtering people. He’s very into killing, and as we need a reminder, completely different from Damduk.

Uh-oh. Ba Son and Dalbi arrive at Ho Gae’s camp. He kills every single blacksmith within a certain radius, in order to make Ba Son talk. (Poor Dalbi is scared witless already.) She does, but only after the audience’s former like of Ho Gae has completely diminished.

After remembering who Dalbi actually was, Ho Gae indulges in some existential angst.

Somehow, through the spinmaster of Lord Yon, the Iron Horse Warrior people are now with Damduk. Yon’s suggestion of human shields and using the Wei army sits badly with the other cabinet members – but again, it’s not like they’re given a choice.

So they will wait for Damduk to get killed.

End episode.

Commentary/Rambling:

– The continual gullibility of the nobles astound me.

– When will Damduk cut the umbilical cord to Kiha? Just when? Poor Sujini is languishing for his attention.

– Also, why so many stalkers in the show?

    “Gwanmi overlord person decides to follow (Does he have a name? I canโ€™t just keep calling him the Gwanmi overlord.)”
    It’s Cheoro.

    “Ho Gae indulges in some existential angst.”
    The never ending existential angst…Gongjaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

    “When will Damduk cut the umbilical cord to Kiha? Just when? Poor Sujini is languishing for his attention.”
    Just wait ’til you see the beggining of episode 24. You’re going to go “HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE”

    This recap was short (compared to the previous ones), but good nonetheless (is that correctly written?)!
    I can’t wait for further recaps!
    Oh, by the by, you must have lots of friends, so why don’t you ask them to download stuff for you and pass it on to you via an UBS key ? That way, you don’t pay any fine!

    Take care,

    Ah. It’s funny because they haven’t mentioned it yet. Cheoro. Coolness. (He must be super anti-social, poor kid.)

    Yup, you are right. My recaps have gotten shorter to compensate for Iljimae getting longer. XD XD XD

    I would, but it’s kind of too late by the time they get to me, and it’s only this month. The policy is pretty much the same everywhere for high speed (the highest you can get is 60 GB, unless you pay through the nose for unlimited – if it even exists – and it’s too bad, because I used to have unlimited and have yet to wean off the bad habits.) Evil oligarchical corporations!

    Huh. 24 must be really special (isn’t it super long too?) And you’re done already!! *envies*

    I wonder if anyone survives.
