Episode 11 of Goblin is coming up which means only 6 episodes left of this addicting fantasy drama. Kim Eun Sook has kept her world building tight so far and has said that this drama was years in the writing for her and the conclusion will not be a narrative letdown for the audience. I believe her, she hasn’t thrown a surfeit of action to keep the story going, relying instead on character interactions both entertaining and meaningful.
This means there aren’t a lot of reveals left so what’s in store is how those reveals impact the character choices to come. The Grim Reaper isn’t Kim Woo Bin but instead Wang Yeo, the King who sentenced his beloved Queen and most faithful warrior to die, thereby sentencing himself to an afterlife of being the Grim Reaper. It’s sad how apropos and also how much I feel sorry for him. Can’t wait for Sunny to learn everything and start making her own knowing choices.
