Episode 4 - A Wedding To Die For
MING DYNASTY, 1521 A.D.
She is playing checkers with the Chinese Emperor, who doesn't seem to be interested in the game at all. She moves a piece. The Chinese Emperor picks up and drops. She notices, and says that he isn't very focused on the game. She then gets checkmate, and he flicks the pieces off of the table in boredom. He says that they are done and it is time for her to go. The Emperor's Mother escorts her out. After Jing leaves, the Emporer's Mother tells the Emperor that he is never going to find a wife like this, but he finds that they are really boring. She then says that the rebellion are waiting at the gates, ready to take his head. They are demanding an heir and that requires a queen. He says that if they are going to be like that, he'll think about it.
