Yay, we’re up to the 15th episode synopsis of [Beyond the Realm of Conscience] – that’s half way through! Hope you’ve all been enjoying the summaries/reviews so far, and thanks to everyone who has been following! The story sure has gone far, with Tavia getting closer and closer to Moses, and Selena finally making her appearance 🙂 Looks like more drama, conflict (and bitchiness) coming up!
Mary suggests to Moses he should consider marriage and starting a family. She doesn’t mind the girl’s status, as long as she’s good natured and has a big heart. Charmaine instantly comes to his mind, and he promptly goes off to find her. The two meet under the tree where they first encountered as children. Just as he was about to propose to her, Charmaine notices a servant watching nearby, who used to serve Susan. As she gets close to Moses, she unveils a knife and attempts to kill him! Luckily Kevin warned him from afar and the two face-off. She is eventually detained and taken away. Charmaine injures her hand among the confusion, and Kevin attends to her holding onto her hands. This surprises and saddens Moses…realising that the two have feelings for each other. He later overhears the two confessing their love to each other and becomes heart-broken. He decides to postpone the marriage selection to a later date. aww..
Tavia tells Charmaine she has a love interest, and Mary enters the room knowing she was referring to Moses. Mary has taken a like in Tavia and encourages her to give it a try. When Moses sees Charmaine and brings up his dilemma of marriage, she asks him to consider Tavia. Oh, what a stab in the heart! Having the girl you love pushing you to someone else is quite an awful feeling. Is Charmaine really this dense, not able see Mose’s feelings for her? Knowing that’s how Charmaine feels, Moses decides to accept Tavia to make Charmaine happy. Is it just me, or does Tavia and Moses not have any chemistry?? I’m not convinced Tavia is in love with Moses…seems like she’s only in it for the power. It’s totally in Tavia’s nature to do that, but I feel awkward watching them o_o.. Moses is only with her because of Charmaine, so it’s hard to imagine some real sparks between them. Everything feels unnatural.. (starting to remind me of Moses and Tavia from Moonlight Resonance). I find it a bit hard to watch the two right now 😡 Hopefully this feeling will change as the story progresses (though I have my doubts!)
Meanwhile, Kwok Lun continues causing problems, torturing and killing other Palace officials without consulting Moses! He claims he investigated the attack by Susan’s servant and reveals that all these people were behind it. They all have intentions of ridding Moses so he punished them accordingly. However, they were all officials Moses considered righteous so it was obvious Kwok Lun made up the evidence to cause havoc. Moses is extremely stressed and doesn’t know what he should do. Luckily, after an encounter with Charmaine’s father, he and Kevin realises they need to take a step back. Feed Kwok Lun some power to keep him content, and wait for the right opportunity to fight back. Moses deliberately acts like a bludger, and tells Kwok Lun he means a lot to him, hoping he can continue to help him out with palace matters.
Kwok Lun is very pleased and doesn’t hesitate to get involved (maybe..too involved XD). He even decides to stick his nose into Moses’s marriage arrangements! He uses this chance to nominate Selena, the daughter of the General Kwok Keung and Yi Kei (also his god-daughter). Going as planned, Moses agrees to his suggestion but also states he wants to take one more as his concubine. He decides he wants Tavia, which makes her extremely happy. However, Kwok Lun objects, degrading Tavia by bringing up her background. Her parents are unknown, and she was a servant to Charmaine who was also a servant. Being a servant of a servant without a history, family background means the lowest of all people. Not reaching a compromise, Moses says he’ll reconsider Tavia, but also postpone the whole selection to a later date! hah! Guess that also means the same for Selena..
Moses having some fun with Tavia
Tavia is back in her room, hurt and angry by Kwok Lun’s insults. Suddenly Yoyo comes in and starts sucking up to Tavia big time. Tavia is already looking extremely evil with vengeance in her eyes. Yoyo offers to do everything for her and Tavia happily accepts it.. GREAT. We have another bitch who will probably feed Tavia with negative thoughts. Yoyo has always been an annoying one, and now she’s back..
Selena arrives at the Palace and hears that she’ll be a candidate for the Emperor. She finds out about Tavia, and instantly grows hatred towards her, looking down upon her pitiful status. Upon meeting Mary for the first time, she makes Tavia look dumb in front of everyone, indicating she’s not very educated with no class. Oh come on, give her a break.. Elsewhere when the two girls are alone, she reveals her extremely vain side, telling Tavia to get a reality check. Nasty!
What are your thoughts on Episode 15? Did Selena give you a good first impression? What do you think of Tavia and Moses at this stage? Any chemistry? Drop a comment and let us know! 😀
