A Brief Recap of Episode 2

In the nail-biting climax of Missing Crown Prince episode 2, Lee Gon, played by EXO’s Suho, finds himself in grave danger. The king’s eunuch, who seems friendly at first, turns out has been sent to murder Lee Gon. Lee Gon tries to escape, but to his shock, even his loyal maid is in on the attack, stabbing him in the gut.

Initially, it seems like the king might be behind the assassination attempt, but the true culprit is revealed to be the Dowager. She has sent assassins after Lee Gon to protect the identity of her secret lover, which Lee Gon is determined to uncover.

Missing Crown Price Episode 3 [Spoilers] – What to expect?

Caution: everything beyond this point contains heavy spoilers for coming episodes.  

In the promo for episode 3, we see Lee Gon badly injured and being carried out of the castle by his loyal bodyguard, thankfully still alive. But Queen Dowager is determined to see him dead and will stop at nothing. She’ll send more of her assassins after him, ordering them to find and kill Lee Gon.

The king will find out about this and confront the Dowager, but just like last time, she’ll give him a choice: either announce that Lee Gon is no longer the crown prince, meaning he’s no longer next in line for the throne or watch his son die.

Since the king loves his son more than anything, he’ll have no choice but to comply. The king is in a tough spot with very few trustworthy men by his side. He’s also facing a constant threat from Queen Dowager, who might try to get rid of him like she did with the previous king.

Meanwhile, Lee Gon is taken to Sang Rok’s house for treatment. Sang Rok is one of the few nobles still loyal to the king. So, you can expect to see Myung Hoon tending to Lee Gon’s wounds and trying to nurse him back to health. But even if Lee Gon gets better, there’s a good chance someone will try to take him out again.

So, in the next episode, we might see him going into exile to gather intel on the Dowager and her secret lover.
