Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 18
by | September 3, 2015 | 48 Comments
It’s a lovely episode about confronting your worst fears and choosing to fight the good fight, no matter how dismal things seem right now. Our hero loses faith in his own humanity, but that’s when the people around him begin to step up in some impressive ways, proving that sometimes, having someone to protect isn’t... More »

Now we’re getting somewhere! After the lack of movement last week—getting through those two plot-stagnant episodes was a chore, I’ll tell you—we have a nice uptick in tempo today, with scholar-nim working through a fresh strain of angst. I’d say it’s amazing how much of a difference it makes when a story moves on from... More »

It’s hard not to find this episode frustrating, when an entire group of your leading characters are operating under false information and magically only encountering others who are equally misinformed. Everyone has the best intentions, of course, but I could do with fewer good intentions and more communication, especially when lives are on the line.... More »

I think I’d like an episode that wasn’t predicated on a noble sacrifice (pretty please?), which seems to be such a regular occurrence here in Scholar-land that I cease to find it a moving plot point. But if you press me to find a silver lining about it, I suppose I prefer episodes like this... More »

It’s a rough episode for our vampire hero, who faces his worst fear—showing his true face and being feared by the woman he loves. And when our couple’s fate rests in the heroine’s hands, it’s a rare chance to see just how vulnerable he is to her reaction, and how much it hurts him to... More »

Hearts, prepare to be pinched: It’s a particularly moving episode, driven by characters and love and heartfelt good intentions. Which, okay, also comes with a fresh side of pain, but I’ll take it because I do love when this drama hits the right emotional chords. It’s easy for the story to veer in other directions... More »

Stupid, stupid humans. Why listen to the vampire who’s spent the last century searching for the right way to kill your common enemy? Why bother following the instructions in the super-secret diary that multiple generations of men have died to find? It’s so much more fun to hatch a half-baked plan and risk everyone’s lives...

Our good guys are starting to head in the same direction, which is promising, though there’s still work to be done getting them all on the same page. Or rather, getting them to realize they’re on the same page—but trust is a long game, and takes a while to build. Luckily for us, the episode... More »

It’s a turning point in the romance and the plot, though the plot half of that is debatable when we’re talking about this show. Don’t get me wrong—stuff totally happens. It’s just that Scholar’s plot has a way of introducing new information that’s a lot like the old information, dressed in new information clothing. Thankfully... More »

Self-sacrifice is the currency of the day, with everyone and their mother (er, father) throwing themselves in the line of fire to save a loved one. It’s not a currency that necessarily buys much, since Big Evil still has them outpaced and outmatched, but there’s nothing like putting our main crew in such dire straits... More »

It’s not the most smoothly executed show, but I like that the story gains some momentum today, with a major development in our conspiracy-to-uncover-the-conspiracy plot that actually ties everyone together rather nicely. By which I mean torturously, with many lives on the line. Do you think if I started a drinking game for whenever Yang-sun... More »
