Episode 7 Recap
After waking up from a dream about her father, Maomao informed Lady Gyokuyou that she would be commencing her job. She was tasked with aiding Gaoshun in finding more clues about the assassination attempt against Lady Lishu. By using her medical skills, Maomao concluded that only four people touched the plate with Lishu’s soup. One of them, the one who grabbed the plate from the top, was the culprit.
She also revealed that she feared Lady Lishu was being harassed and mocked by her ladies-in-waiting for being the former concubine of the Emperor’s father. Gaoshun told all this information to Jishin, who was visibly stressed and tired.
The next morning, Maomao learned that the hairpins she collected during the party could be used to leave the palace if the person who offered her the gift accepted. She used this information to arrange a meeting with Lihaku, the military officer who gave her his pin. By offering him a night with one of the Three Princesses of Verdigris House, she got the man to agree to accompany her back home.
Maomao left Lihaku at the brothel, but not before being punched by her adoptive grandmother for disappearing. Once Lihaku was out of the picture, she went back home, greeting her father and telling him about her adventures. Later that day, as Maomao rested, her father looked at her suspiciously while stating that it was a coincidence that she ended up working on the rear palace.
