    The manhwa is back from the break and nothing much has happened in the new chapter. It's more like an intro to the new season, so the summary will be very short.
    ML has brought MC to meet his parents and the father is angry that there's a human in their castle. ML says she has saved his life, so she's a guest, father says she could have been given money and left in the human world, ML says she would have been killed for helping him.
    At the end MC says to treat her as a hostage if it will help them, as her brother won't attack their castle as long as she's there. ML's mother says to her husband that she wants MC to stay as a guest, she doesn't want to lose one more child.
    Cut to ML's aide and the red head knight, she's saying that ML shouldn't have brought this human woman. The aide says to watch her mouth as she's ML's guest. And that the red head knight should forget about sticking to ML because he's obviously not interested. She's saying that his partner should be a powerful person with a lot of magic to produce a powerful heir implying that she's the best candidate, and that the Demon king will never allow MC to stay.
    ML brings MC to her new room, which looks cooler than what you'd expect even in a human world royal palace. There's a direct door from MC's room to ML's room and they both are blushing. There's a bit of silly flirting between ML and MC, he says he'll be taking care of her etc. Then ML's aide comes in and gives MC a key to the door that is connecting their rooms. The last one comes the red head knight girl with probably a change of clothes and is angrily staring at MC.

    Hasn't Rian suffered enough, now she had to deal with some jealous bitch too? ML needs to shut this down quick cause I can't stand a character like that

    Thanks for this. I can’t imagine what’s ahead now. I wonder will the war between the humans and demons take place in the human world or will the war come to the demon world. I hope not the latter because it might be blamed on the MC by the demon civilians.

    Ah, but isn’t this the same as second male leads who always get a pass from readers? I hardly see anyone call them bitches even when their advances are unwanted or their hopes towards the female lead are pretty much the same as this female character who doesn’t approve of MC.

    I don't recall the second ML in this story glaring at ML or being weirdly hostile. I dislike any character like that tbh, male or female. And this FL in particular suffered so much so I hate to see it.

    Ch. 89 discussion and 90 spoilers discussion

    I'm still annoyed with the creative direction the manhwa is taking. Just read 89 and now they're teasing what should've been from the start, CP as good as what the spoilers here have spoiled. Was the novel unpopular perhaps? I can consider the fact Korean readers might be let down with the emperor being THE big bad being absent most of the plot or I'm just assuming Leon (or whatever his name is. Mind is blank atm) was initially popular that the readers wanted him as the prince but that doesn't make much sense considering the novel's direction, he and Rian should be besties now and sharing beauty tips and him falling for Ramona (weird direction, completely fine for me to remove seeing as he's losing another crush to another guy) and the adaptation during this arc made him be put on the bus currently. Theo... is better in the manhwa for me unless proven/argued otherwise. I mean, early redemption is better than what was spoiled (but I'll be annoyed still knowing we'll lose the part where it was spoiled Rian shows him the evidence she collected and proved herself not as the weak sister he sees her)

    As for ch.90, is S3 already happening? *sigh* I know the war has been decades, and they do have legitimate excuse to be... wary (for a lack of adjective) with MC but I guess other than MLs mom being half supportive (simply out of fear of losing another child), I guess its better than the novel spoilers? Though I wonder if its possible the series to get the surprise MLs sister was alive along but instead of locking herself, she was in hiding and mourning (frankly, I could do losing this sidestory plot as well despite strong chara developments for the sis). Any novel spoilers on the redhead demon knight or is she manhwa exclusive? Does anyone here think MC will still get her powerup?

    This is MTL, so not sure it's right.
    The red-head female demon, Leona, I think her name is, proclaimed herself as Belgard's fiancee, which of course Belgard dismissed it as a misunderstanding and he tells her she'll be temporarily discharged as his escort as he can't place her by his side with such way of thinking. Obviously Leona is angry and in her anger questioned if Belgard want to repeat the same tragedy like Cecilia, his sister. Things became tense and Leona quickly apologized for her slip up, but Rian diffused the situation and forgave Leona for her rudeness. Afterwards, Belgard apologized to Rian and revealed he has no intention to marry anyone for the rest of his life.

    Belgard explained that he decided to never get married because he believes that after what happened to his sister, he doesn't deserve happiness. While Rian was pondering about this, she thought it's wrong for Belgard to think so and believes Cecilia would've wanted her brother to be happy. When Rian decided to go out, the spirit of Cecilia emerged behind her, looking sad. At town, she meet Belgard's human friend (forgot his name) and Rian told him what Belgard told her, making the guy angrily said that Belgard is an idiot.

    Oh my~ the manga's creative direction is keeping the sister dead (or at least have an astral body). Again, I prefer this scenario in this case

    The newest RAW just came out, turns out the sister is still alive, only her body is in catatonic state while her spirit leaves the body and wandering around.

    A bit late in reply but... at least compared to the novel, she knew earlier her brother now understood what she went through (its now a matter on whether or not she can accept the relationship much earlier and try not to make him suffer since her lover died while he got legitimate support in the ending.

    Any spoilers on the manhwa?

    Rian brought Bergard to his sister's catatonic body. Then his sister spiritually communicated with Rian and borrowed her body so she can speak directly with her brother. Both siblings seem to have reconciled, but Bergard's sister is still wandering around as a spirit, not sure why.

    I don’t think anyone can say who will be emperor. In the novel, it was the first prince but the manhwa artist changed his personality “and actions” so much that your guess is just as good as anyone else’s who read the novel.

    Her brother and the first prince were almost always on good terms in the novel. It’s the emperor who was the villain. He was even confronted by both princes near the end. First prince and second prince were on good terms too.

    MC became the Empress/Queen of the demon world. She had twins. A boy who looks like her and a girl who looks like ML. The girl will be the next empress and her cunning twin brother will support her.

    While I have not read the novel and only the spoilers here, the adaptation has changed a lot of things, some minor (the fake death event, apparently it wasn't even MCs plan like in the manhwa), some big (MLs sister fate reveal was early, this is so far a good decision. Novel, she was in a coma, no astral projection or spirit watching over the sidelines. Naturally, waking up and finding her brother achieved what she couldn't: marry a human they loved made her temporarily bitter) like the CPs character. His character's so damaged at this point, even the Korean fanbase based on Newtoki comments are mad. He should've been good, all royal children were good and 2nd Prince/Leo (?) should've been besties with MC at this point, sharing beaty secrets, this hasn't been shown yet. Leo should also have gotten attracted with Ramona (though, I'm fine with this change/removal. Poor guy has to lose a girl twice)

    series discussion

    I LOVE how Belgarde was firm on rejecting the redhead. For one thing, she already showed how much of a red flag she is as a woman
    1. I could acknowledge the human hatred since they're at war. I truly could but the fact she insulted Rian as his guest, even forcefully respected by the queen just so she couldn't get a repeat of her other child's tragedy. Redhead essentially insulted 2 Royal decisions in this scenario. LOVE Rian's reaction also, just pure curiosity, like Belgarde, YOU have a fiance? Then went straight to: This woman already has a lover?
    2. Implied having a lover is welcome and normal, are we sure she won't harass any of Belgarde's potential lovers though?
    3. The sister brought up was an all time low. I have to wonder if you were in Belgarde's shoes, you could actually forgive that simple apology even if it was something said out of a spur of the moment
    4. I have to constantly remind myself CPs cause of being evil is probably his own sword in the adaptation now that we have a young CP hallucination whispering sweet nothings to him

    I read some of the chapters on the manhwa... I'd put a spoiler tag...

    About Leona (?), turns out she doesn't really want to leave her lover... Kiel was even embarassed when they (Leona and lover) were being lovey-dovey in front of him and thought “I'm glad Belgarde-sama and Rian-sama (i forgot the korean counterpart of sama) aren't like this”.

    Idk at what chapter (I think at Chap 11) but............. THEY KISSED AND EVEN SAID I LOVE YOUUUUUUUUU TO EACH OTHERRRRRR!!!
