The previous episode left us hanging with Gon realizing that he is the one who saved himself when he was a kid and we can’t also stop ourselves from worrying as we witness Gon collapsing slowly, it seems that Luna put something in his drink.

The fourteenth episode started with Shin-jae seeing his counterpart and Tae-eul finds Goo Eun-a dead body. As Lady Noh worries it turned out that Luna poisoned Gon as per Lee Rim order and tried to get the whip.  Thankfully Captain Yeong arrived but as his concern in Gon’s safety, he didn’t manage to catch Luna. Yeong instantly called Tae-eul but unfortunately Tae-eul can’t come closer as the one who tried to kill Gon looks like her. Tae-eul then called Eun-seob to stay with his father.

Upon realizing what really happened in the past, Lee Rim got himself a lot of questions.  Meanwhile Gon asks about Tae-eul as soon as he wakes up but decided that he must go to the other world.

In the bamboo forest, Gon and Lee Rim are both staring in the portal and as the two entered it seemed that the manpasikjeok can sense its other half. It turns out that they are both want to catch one another and then we saw a photo of Tae-eul falling down and burning then a plant started to grow. The kid in the bookstore alley started to reveal that if the Manpasikjeok becomes one inside the gate, both the axes for time and space simultaneously form inside the gate. And when the Manpasikjeok becomes whole, it takes you to the moment when you wish to save yourself.  Both the king and the traitor were taken to the same point in time, the night of the treason. Because the king wished to save both worlds from the traitor, and the traitor wished to save his foolish self from failing the coup.
