'The Last Empress' Episodes 29 & 30 Spoilers: Empress Oh Sunny Auctions Painting & The Royal Family Is Furious
Empress Oh Sunny needs to do something to bring back sympathy of the public on her and earn some money. Her solution is to hold an auction of a painting from the royal palace in the upcoming The Last Empress Episodes 29 and 30.
Empress Dowager Kang (Shin Eun Kyung) allowed Sunny (Jang Nara) to stay in the palace but with no privileges. She needs to clean her own room and prepare her food. In the previous episode, the Emperor's mother invited Sunny's father to the palace to see his daughter's miserable situation.
Sunny pity herself but did not give up her position in the palace. In the upcoming episodes, the Empress is seen making a way to earn money and that is selling some portrays from the palace.
Oh Sunny is holding an auction and Empress Kang finds out about it. It looks like imperial guard Chun Woo Bin (Choi Jin Hyuk) will be tasked to stop the auction.
Elsewhere, it seems like Emperor Lee Hyuk (Shin Sung Rok) is having a change of heart about his wife. He is now competing with the attention Sunny is giving to Woo Bin. In the previous episode, he interrupted Sunny and Woo Bin's meal.
In the upcoming The Last Empress Episodes 29 and 30, when the Emperor notices that Woo Bin's hand injury has been treated already, the guard tells Lee Hyuk that it was Sunny who clean up his wound. Then the Emperor is seen in the teaser faking a neck injury and asks Sunny to treat it. The Empress, however, kicks his leg. Instead of getting mad of the Sunny's action, Lee Hyuk is seen lovingly smile.
Meanwhile, the former imperial secretary Min Yoo Ra (Lee Elijah) is not seen in the teaser for the upcoming episodes. In the previous episode, Yoo Ra told Woo Bin where the body of Na Wang Sik's mother was dumped. She followed Woo Bin under the bridge and saw him digging the remains. She also saw the imperial guard weeping over the body of Wang Sik's mother.
It can be assumed that she chooses to hide and plan her next move against the royal family and imperial guard Chun Woo Bin. It is also possible that she has gone to Emperor Lee Hyuk. She may have told the Emperor about the real identity of Woo Bin but Lee Hyuk did not believe her. Woo Bin is seen in the teaser still working for the Emperor.
Meanwhile, it is also expected that the identity of the mysterious man in the mental health facility will be revealed soon. In the previous episode, Woo Bin saw him when he is about to leave the facility.
His connection to the story could be revealed in this week's episodes. The Last Empress airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 10 p.m. KST on SBS.
