HGD after analyzing the recent events came to a conclusion that it was CW who is responsible for everything and decided to talk to his father to clear his name. The other thieves assisted him in tracking down HIH although some of them dont like the idea at all. When the brothers met, HDG told him about CW and stuff but HIH immediately bragged to his face that their father knew the truth about HDG’s innocence and yet he chose to clear only HIH’s name. Seeing the shock that his words are making on HDG’s face, he even stressed that their father had completely abandon him and that he does not care what happen to his illegitimate son.
The words seemed like cutting through HDG’s insides could not believe what he just heard. HIH left him but not without a stinging slap on his face rendered by the thieve’s ther leader SG.
In one of the most emotion-filled scenes, HDG tries to brush it off and tried laughing at himself and the situation but Enok knew better. She put up her hands as if covering his face and told him to cry and he need not worry nobody will see. They both cried.
Later on, in the temple, HDG went back to his former self of wanting to go to China since he doesnt care again with the local situation. MN, the girl bandit leader, then baiting HYK by telling her that she is preparing herself for one hot night of thank you’s with HDG alarming HYK and tries her best to convince the other girl that its not necessary. They end up drinking together. HYK asked MN on what ‘I Love You’ really means. They discussed that its more than liking someone and she confessed to MN that she felt that way towards HDG. MN told her of HDG’s plan to go to China and why not go with him. HYK told her that she really wanted to go but she wanted HDG to ask her himself. MN understands.
In one of the sweetest scenes, HDG and HYK talked. She wanted to ask him something but then she’s quite shy so he gave her the dark glasses and told her that it’s less embarrasing. She asked if he’s going hunting again and he told her yes and asked her will she come with him. She of course said yes. He asked her again even if they hunt for two tigers to which she said she will really go with him. He’s quite happy with her positive answers and then asked her to go with him hunting and then go to China. HYK beaming happily said yes but they need not go and hunt for the animals since she saved a lot already then proceeded to say “I Love You” (English Words)to him. He is puzzled and asked her what does it means to which she replied that he’ll know when they reach China.
CW on the other hand was in deep shit. His half brother, the King recognized him during the civil exams day fiasco. Lady Noh is strategizing on how to put all the blame to HDG. The King being crazy with paranoia wanted everyone tortured and interrogated especially after a cryptic subtle message was plastered all over the city about who is the rightful king. Minister Hong decided to interrogate then kill people until they can get to the bottom of it.
HDG and CW both watch the unfair execution of the innocent people. HDG couldnt take it anymore went to CW and his group to give him the sword and he said he will confessed to the whole thing and will show the sword as his proof so the killings may stop.
He first went to his father and told him that he’s the one responsible for everything. His father, Minister Hong knew in his heart that his son is innocent and asked him why is he doing it. HDG did not bother answering him and told him that once the men who were detained and about to be executed are released, that will be the time he will tell the where the sword is. His father asked him who is he covering up and to tell him the truth because he is his son. HDG told him that he’s not and to not catch him alive.
HYK on the other hand heard of what is going to happen to HDG from the other thieves went to look for him nervously. She found him in their “place”, near the stream. She begged him to just run away. She will help him with the soldiers but he has to ran away. He knew that she will not leave him then touch a nerve point in her body to make her unconscious, apologizing to her that he can’t come with her.
When the soldiers arrive to arrest him, he run to another direction away from where HYK. He continue to run until he was cornered to a cliff. Nowhere to go, an arrow strucked him on the heart, blood stained his chest then he fell back on to the cliff.
Later on, HYK woke up, realized he’s not there, run crying.
He died?! Duh, it’s only episode 7.
