  • The flashback in episode one that first shows just how Royally Screwed Up Goryeo's royal family is. King Taejo and Queen Yoo's oldest son has just died. Far from being grief-stricken King Taejo decides this is the perfect time to announce he's going to marry another woman. Queen Yoo reacts badly. She grabs Wang So (who's just a child at the time), holds a knife at his throat, and threatens to kill him if Taejo goes ahead with the marriage. Then she tries to stab him. Taejo stops her in time, but the knife cuts Wang So's face.
