And the travel continues.
Warning: Spoilers ahead!
And they are off to Capital Fuuga, where the village of the wind tribe resides. What will they see there? Will they be received as allies or enemies?
Ah, it seems the Wind Tribe loves Hak as he appears before them after serving the king for three years.
Meanwhile, the generals of the four tribes plus Hak’s grandfather, Mun-deok is summoned in the Hiryuu castle for a meeting. This elicit a bad feeling from Hak, who probably knows what the meeting is all about.
As expected, they are talking about crowning Soo-Won as the next king of Kouka. A speculation that Hak kidnapped the princess to silence her as Hak is the main suspect of the murder. The fire tribe is also seemed with Soo-Won, but to what extent? It was not revealed.
Going back to the village, it was revealed to Yona that Hak has a brother named Tae-yeon, another adopted son by Mun-deok. Hak told everyone that the woman with him is Rina and she works in the castle.
As Mun-deok returned to the village, the Fire Tribe cuts off their river supplies as well as merchants who passed by their village. This endangered Tae-yeon’s life as he is a sickly child who needs medicine.
Hak then orders his grandfather this, as the general and leader of the Wind Tribe. This is to ensure that both that princess and the village be safe as he tackles on the challenges ahead. With a heavy heart, Mun-deok agrees, as if he does not heed the order, he will be forced to bring Hak before the king.
This episode revolves on the politics, how the tribes interact, the Soo-Won’s ascension to the throne and bribing one of the tribes to support it. It was wise of Hak to remove himself from the equation and save the tribe before anyone dies. Despite leaving without the princess, Hak is sure of himself that its safe for Yona to remain in the village rather than be in danger because of him.
I do wonder what will Yona do when she finds out what Hak is planning.
