Faith (2012) Episode 2 Recap
We see the portal through the view of the men who stayed behind. Loyal Dae Man (with the spiky anime hair) is willing to jump in right after his general, but he gets held back. Even the king decides to stay put to see what happens.
Which is when Choi Young reappears, now dragging a stunned and wailing Eun Soo behind him. Everyone looks stunned to see a very unheavenly being now making a run for the portal, until Choi Young goes after her again and makes her stay put.
They go back to the inn to meet Jang Bin again, and Eun Soo has a revelation: They’re at a movie set! And an actress got injured, so they don’t want to report to the police! She promises to call the paramedics and backs away to the door, and Choi grabs her and makes a promise through gritted teeth: once the queen is healed and conscious, he will personally take her back.
Mollified, Eun Soo takes a look at the still unconscious patient, now in doctor mode as she snaps orders and puts on her gear. The rest of the gang cringes at her glasses/headlamp contraption as she gets to work…and in the meantime, the queen’s remaining attendant sneaks out to meet a shady-looking man with a scar. Mole!
The surgery goes well, and Eun Soo grabs her bag and announces to the king and his group that the queen needs bedrest, but her job is done now. The king addresses her as “The person from heaven”, musing that this means heaven’s favor is with him; Eun Soo despairs to be in a company of yet another crazy and starts smacking her head to wake herself up.
In the meantime, the men guarding the portal notice that it’s noticeably shrinking. Uh oh…
Jo In Shil, the sleaze that he is, tries to convince the king that keeping the heavenly healer with him will proclaim his legimitacy, the one with heavenly light coming from her forehead (lol). Choi Young shoves him out of the way to remind the king that he made a promise on his life to return her home. The king wonders if one person’s word is worth a kingdom’s safety, but Choi replies that he has a warrior has slaughtered people, and statesmen like Jo In Shil’s words are worth nothing. “But as a king, should you not be different?”
Time to introduce our villains: the wealthy Gi Cheol, who controls the strings of power in Goryeo, and his ruthless white-haired flute-playing brother Eum Ja.
Rumors of the queen’s death spread through the nation, and Goryeo’s politicians fret about the outcome; Yuan will surely not forgive this.
Eun Soo finds herself locked in a room in the meantime, and tries to bribe the attendant to let her free. The girl makes no response to the cash, but does unlock a side door, and Eun Soo makes her way out into the town. Dae Man notices the empty room and follows.
Eun Soo is most puzzled by the fact that there’s no reception and that no one understands her words for telephone, but ducks into a clothing stall as she spots Dae Man. And behind him, the scarred man follows.
Choi Young finds out that Eun Soo is gone, and immediately sets out with the modern Police shield strapped to his back. He leaves instructions to guard the queen with care. (Chung Seok: “And the king?” Choi: “Oh…guard him too”).
He and Dae Man go to the clothing stall, only to find her gone. She’s currently wandering around in despair at the size of the movie set…until she gets attacked by Scar and his friends. She fights back but gets knocked out, losing her shoe in the process.
Choi and Dae Man find the shoe, next to some drops of blood. He reasons that the men who kidnapped her are the same as those who attacked yesterday…which leads him to conclude there must be a mole. He decides to start at the beginning and find the boatman, who turns out to be drunk. A bit of dunking gets him to talk, and Choi and Dae Man show up in the place where an armed man has tied up Eun Soo, hidden in the back.
Choi attacks the man downstairs and threatens him to get him to talk: the enemy are poised to attack with poison gas containers, and they should be attacking right now. Cut to the inn, where Chung Seok realizes that his lookouts are dead and sounds the alarm.
But the gas debilitates the Wudalchi, and bowmen shoot anyone trying to get out. Dae Man manages to fight his way in, as Chung Seok hustles the king’s party out the back door. Jang Bin carries the queen, and in the poison gas haze the attendant manages to steer him away onto a separate balcony.
Seeing enemies closing in, Jang Bin sets the queen down on the walkway with the attendant. He fights with his fan, which has a mysterious energy that knocks out his enemies. In the meantime, the attendant raises a dagger to finish off the queen…only to pause as the queen opens her eyes. In that moment of shock, Choi Young flings his shield at the attendant, knocking her down.
The fighting over, Choi again asks the king if he can take heavenly healer back, now that the queen is saved.
In the meantime, ministers gather to discuss the recent situation: Yuan is basically poised to take over Goryeo. They know it’s the doing of Gi Cheol, but it seems like their meeting is in vain – hands throw poison gas containers into the chamber, and the ministers fall one by one.
Choi Young and Dae Man go back to find Eun Soo, approaching the (seemingly empty) building warily. Eun Soo’s captor holds her fast…until a voice chirrups “Feed me! Feed me!” It’s the cell phone, which is running low on battery voicing an alarm. The bad guy jerks, startled, and Choi and Dae Man come running to see Eun Soo, bound and gagged with a knife to her throat.
Choi and Dae Man share a look; Dae Man sprints off to the side and the enemy is distracted for a split second – and Choi’s knife gets him in the chest. Eun Soo sobs in terror and relief as Choi gently unbinds her, tsking at her ability to get into trouble.
The second she’s unbound, she hobbles off on one shoe, determined to get away, until Choi sweeps her up in his arms. She kicks and screams till he explains that he’s here to take her back, and then she quietens down.
They labor up the mountain to the portal, which is visibly shrinking. Choi turns to Eun Soo and bows in thanks for her work. She sets off toward the portal…only to hear “Halt!”
Jo In Shil is here with Wudalchi and the king’s command: the heavenly healer is to accompany the king to Goryeo. Choi, angry, walks up to him and shouts, “I promised upon my name! Who dares disrespect my name?!” Jo In Shil tells him it was the king’s command – in this is something that Choi cannot ignore.
He strides forward to hold Eun Soo back as she screams…and the portal closes. His face is twisting in anger and distaste at having to dishonor his name at the king’s command. Eun Soo breaks free, cursing him and swearing to kill him. She picks up a sword and points it at him – and he walks right into it, stabbing it through his abdomen. She screams again in horror, “Why..? You could have avoided it! Why?”
Chung Seok and the rest of Wudalchi gather around their fallen commander, as Jo In Shil pesters Eun Soo to leave Choi and come with him. She demands that she stay; Choi Young is close to death, and he needs to keep the blade inside him to stop the bleeding. “I’m not going! And besides, leaving him here to die would make me a murderer.” Jo In Shil says fine, he’ll be the murderer then, and pulls the damn sword right out of Choi. He groans in agony and Eun Soo shrieks in horror at the blood pouring out. She commands Chung Seok to put pressure on the wound, and Chung Seok tells Jo In Shil that Wudalchi is staying with Choi – on the orders of the heavenly doctor.
They put him on a stretcher to take him to a building, and send Dae Man to get Eun Soo’s surgical supplies. He comes racing into the inn, pleading to get the supplies to heal Choi Young. The king grows furious, demanding to know if Choi obeyed his command, thinking that Wudalchi had to cut him down because he disobeyed.
The queen speaks up then – firmly, she commands Dae Man and Jang Bin as their queen to go tend to Choi Young and save his life. When they leave, she looks the king in the eye and asks calmly, “Is it alright if I give orders like this?”
Wudalchi hustles Choi Young through the woods, who in turn is urging Eun Soo to go. Finally she snaps, “(in English) Shut up! Here’s the order: first I’ll save you, then you can go and live or die as you please!” Haha, this is exactly what I’ve been waiting for, Kim Hee Sun.
Back at the inn, the king approaches the queen and tells her that from now on, everything she does will be by his command, not hers. He understands that she is angry at going to a new land and leaving her home, but this is the last time she does something like this. “Do you understand?”
She looks right back at him and replies, “You have not commanded me to speak, so I cannot.”
At the surgery site, Eun Soo prepares to do surgery without antibiotics (Dae Man had accidentally dropped and crushed those). She and Jang Bin argue over anaesthetic, but Choi goes unconscious anyway, so she grabs a scalpel. Jang Bin demands to know why she’s treating a cut by cutting a person open; she replies, “I’m from heaven, aren’t I? So trust me.”
