Oh goodness..only two more episodes to go!! Without a doubt this episode was packed with action and drama..including some horrifying ones too >_<. By the end of this episode, I’m clearly behind Charmaine and will be rooting for her until the end. Tavia has become so unbearable to watch, and has become quite boring to be honest. Her character isn’t dynamic enough and seems to be pretty predictable, using the same tactics over and over. What has really gotten to me though is her constant thought of taking people’s lives without hesitation. Her inhumane morals are despicable!
Ready for Episode 31 synopsis? 😉
Tavia tells a fragile, bed-ridden Selena that she’s here to take her baby away! Selena looks confused and asks where her maid is, to which Tavia replies she’s already dead. Selena becomes nervous but calmly asks for an explanation. AHHH!! How can she still not get the hint Tavia is here to kill her???? >__<!!! Tavia blatantly tells her to her face how much she loathes her and Selena apologises for her behavior, saying it’s all in the past. It’s sad to think she trusted her so much to find the reality too hard to believe. Selena still doesn’t understand the life threatening situation she is in >_<!!
Tavia takes Selena’s life away
Tavia shows Selena her true colors, revealing all the bad things she has done to her, including pulling the necklace apart to make her fall, wearing fragrances to rid her baby and plotting against Yi Kei which caused her death! I felt soooo sad and scared for Selena, who was so helpless and weak since no one was here to help her. Upon hearing the truth, she insists on reporting it to Moses… talk about naive.. Tavia along with Yoyo hold her down, forcing the liquid down her throat as she desperately cries for help….. but alas, her words were never heard. AHHH HORRIBLE!!! Selena’s life was taken away along with the baby… so so sad. It was only a matter of time before this happened, as blabbing out the truth is a good indicator you won’t get the chance to tell anyone else ><!! Truly a horrifying scene.
Moses soon finds out the devastating news and immediately sends people to investigate on her death. However, a traumatized Mary walks in, saying it’s not necessary. She admits it was her decision to rid Selena’s baby, because she knew Kwok Lun’s plan and doesn’t want Moses to die! If Mary had to sacrifice her own life for Moses she would without hesitation 🙁 I feel awful for Mary… it was all part of Tavia’s scheme and now she has to suffer the burden and guilt, thinking it was her fault her grandchild is dead, along with Selena 🙁
Moses finds out it was Mary’s decision to rid Selena’s baby
Moses is extremely upset, but cannot do anything about it since Mary is his mother, and only did it out of love (And of course, Tavia is not mentioned at all so she gets no blame what-so-ever). I can’t help but wonder if Selena’s baby’s death was really Tavia’s fault, or if it really was Mary’s decision in the end. What’s certain though is that Selena may have been able to survive. Who do you think is ultimately responsible for Selena’s baby’s death?
When alone, Moses thinks back of the happy times spent with Selena. Although Moses never truly loved Selena in a passionate way, she was kind-hearted and sweet (well, she eventually became that way).
Meanwhile, Kwok Keung’s protection charm breaks in half.. a sign of Selena’s departure..or a foreshadow of his own demise? >__<! Kevin attempts to escape with Kwok Keung from Kwok Lun’s guards and meets up with his own little army. Unfortunately, Kwok Lun’s men soon come after them and they engage in a fierce battle! Kevin’s army was outnumbered and soon they are all killed leaving Kevin injured and on the brink of a cliff. Left without a choice, Kevin jumps off the cliff and is never seen again O_____O!! Kwok Keung was hidden in a cart, covered by the bushes…I really hope they make it back alive 🙁
Back in the Palace, Moses breaks the devastating news to Charmaine who becomes overwhelmed with sorrow, pouring her heart out. She is in denial and refuses to believe Kevin is dead, not until they discover his body…aww.
Kevin jumps off the cliff, Moses prepares for the worst
Just when Charmaine has so much on her mind, more trouble arises for her when the entire House of Proceedings are called upon in front of Mary! Kwok Lun allegedly found evidence that someone has been stealing medical ingredients to make a soup tailored for pregnant women. He has reasons to suspect someone is having an affair, and point fingers at Charmaine! How did he know? All part of Tavia’s doing.. When Charmaine is left without any choice, she comes forward and admits it is true! This completely shocks everyone and Mary’s heart sinks…She was already so upset over Selena’s death and now Charmaine? How can she find the heart to punish the one she favours the most? Tavia does little to help (since it was part of her plan to kill Charmaine), while Michelle and the others beg for forgiveness. Mary is torn between doing what her heart says, and acting on what she should do. She becomes speechless when Kwok Lun pushes her to sentence Charmaine to her death.
Luckily just at the climax, Moses yells “Who dares to kill my son?!” as he make his grand appearance 😀 😀 😀 Moses comes to the rescue, self proclaiming Charmaine’s child is his. He will also officially take her as his concubine! Phhewwwwww…Charmaine is saved!! yaaaaayyyy (Though I think we all saw this coming, didn’t we? XD)
It was amusing when Kwok Lun insists they investigate the pregnancy further, and Moses tells him he knows what he has done, lol XD.
Moses claims to be the father of Charmaine’s baby
Tavia believed it was true, thinking Charmaine really slept with Moses behind her back disregarding her feelings. Oh well, we’re used to seeing cranky Tavia XD. Since when is Tavia not angry at Charmaine? Seriously, it’s getting quite boring for me to actually write “She is pissed off” lol. Tavia’s misunderstanding of Charmaine just keeps getting worse and worse..and to a extent, Tavia brought it upon herself.
In order to deal with Kwok Lun, Moses must leave the Palace on a mission, leaving Tavia and Charmaine to look after his ill mother. Tavia embraces this opportunity to dominate and seek revenge on everyone she wants to. Just as she was walking around the Palace with Yoyo, she hears Susanna confess to Vin that she and Kwok Keung are his biological parents!! Oh craaaaaaappppp!! Susanna is caught on the spot, and the secret is exposed to everyone!
Because Mary is recovering, Tavia insists on being in charge of all Head of Proceeding matters- including punishing Susanna for her crime! ahhhhh!! It looks like another sticky situation to get out of- talk about suspense!! Susanna denies the accusation, despite Tavia hearing it with her very own ears. Just when Tavia orders to use corporal punishment, Charmaine steps in as the concubine!
Susanna and Vin’s relationship exposed
The two start exchanging verbal arguments, with Charmaine insisting to be involved with the hearing and Tavia denying her the authority. Tavia attacks Susanna while Charmaine defends her, objecting every point she makes. Just as the heated argument is getting no where, Michelle suggest for them to do a simple blood test, which would determine everything!! O___O Charmaine and Susanna are both horrified knowing their secret will be revealed!! Tavia successfully tests them.. but much to everyone’s surprise..the test came out negative!!!
PHEWWW!!..but WHAAT? How can this be?
