Episode 6 Recap

The Palace Party began, with Maomao and her friends shivering from the cold air that blew through the garden. To take their minds off the cold, they took a peel behind the curtain to see the Emperor and his high concubines enjoying the show. One of Maomao friend’s pointed toward the dowager empress, who was holding her granddaughter Lingli.

Maomao noticed how young she looked, despite being the adoptive mother of the current Emperor. Her friend revealed that she was extremely young when the emperor took her as a concubine. While they talked a small verbal fight began between the ladies-in-waiting of the Jade and Crystal Palaces. Thankfully, the confrontation ended when Maomao intimidated their opponents.

Shortly after, another dispute began, this time involving the ladies-in-waiting of the Virtuous (oldest) and Pure (youngest) Concubines. The long history of fighting between the two stemmed from the fact that they used to be daughter-in-law and mother-in-law. While Maomao assumed that the oldest of the two was the mother-in-law, her friends corrected her, telling her that it was the other way around.

Later that day, Maomao began receiving pins from various important members of the Royal Family, although she did not understand what they represented. When the time for the meal arrived, Maomao discovered that the soup was poisoned, alerting everyone. Jishin talked with her about possible culprits, but Maomao ignored him, preferring to talk with the Pure concubine.

Maomao noticed that the young woman was fed a fish that caused her an allergic reaction. She told her food taster to be more careful in the future, as this could have been deadly. Jishin noticed how stern Maomao was with the food tester and deduced that his friend believed the Pure Concubine to be the assassin’s target.
