Arthdal Chronicles The Sword of Aramun episode 3 begins with a solemn goodbye to Mubaek and all of Arthdal grieves for him along with Tanya, who had been looking forward to his return. However, Mubaek’s commanders know the truth and Yeonbal even confronts Tagon about the truth.
However, Tagon reprimands him for leaving his post and returning to Arthdal with Mubaek. Meanwhile, Taealha is worried that Asa Yon and Saya will reveal the truth and asks someone to get the former. Unfortunately, she is too late as Tagon’s men have already caught Asa Yon to get his testimony.
Later, Eunseom finally wakes up and finds himself in an unknown room only to soon find out that he is in Arthdal. Right then, Taealha’s arrival alerts Eunseom who grabs the nearest sword and is ready to defend himself.

The ruckus attracts the attention of those outside and they soon rush in to see the two holding a sword at each other when Eunseom suddenly faints. This alerts everyone and Tagon too later comes to check on his condition. Meanwhile, the situation at the Ago Union is tense due to the disappearance of their Inaishingi.
While the elders at the Union try to find out what happened to the Inaishingi, Suhana sends the message to Tagon. Elsewhere, Ipsaeng and Dalsae remember that Eunseom had gone to Shorjagin before leaving to meet Saya. They ask him about what he told Eunseom and where he went. While Shorjagin is not ready to reveal the place Eunseom went to, he finally takes them when facing their sincerity.
However, upon reaching the hut they see the place burnt and Shorjagin reveals that Eunseom must have been mistakenly taken to Arthdal. The two aren’t able to understand why this happened when Shorjagin reveals that Eunseom and Saya are twins. The two are unable to believe this when Chaeeun arrives and tells them that it is the truth.
Left with no choice, the two decide to go to Arthdal to get Eunseom back and Shorjagin tells them that only he can take them back. However, Chaeeun refuses to go back as she still has to take care of Saya and make sure that he is alright.
The next day, Eunseom wakes up again and this time Parkryangpoong tells him about the situation with the queen and the Shahiti children which helps Eunseom understand the situation he is in. He also tells Eunseom that he needs to give his testimony in court before which he will inform Tagon and Tanya about his situation.
Elsewhere, Tanya gets news of the slaves being mistreated and left to die of disease which makes her rush to them and help them out of the situation. Back at the palace, Eunseom tries to find a way to leave the building when he comes across familiar faces which leave him angered. However, he also comes across a meeting where the situation about the Ago border is being discussed which helps him get some important information.
On the other hand, Nunbyeol is able to gain the queen’s trust when she successfully gets the young prince out of the palace without anyone finding out. Meanwhile, Ipsaeng, Dalsae and Shorjagin reach Arthdal and reunite with Dotti and Seucheon who are surprised by their arrival.
Back at the palace, Eunseom is finally able to escape the palace walls when Nunbyeol attacks him out of nowhere while assuming him to be Saya. However, she soon realises who he really is and asks about her sister. Right then Ipsaeng and Dalsae arrive and reunite with Eunseom while telling Nunbyeol that Chaeeun stayed back for Saya.
Later, Eunseom reunites with Dotti but also tells them that they cannot meet the other Wahan people and need to leave Arthdal as soon as possible. But soon their plans change when Mungtae arrives with his troops to take “Saya” back for the council meeting that is to be held.

Arthdal Chronicles Season 2 Episode 3 Ending
Soon, the council meeting begins and “Saya” is asked to give his testimony, but before that, he is doubted and asked to recognise the crescent dagger used by the Shahiti children. Eunseom naturally does not recognise the dagger, however, Tanya helps him out with her telepathy.
Later, Eunseom tells everyone that he does not recognise the people who attacked him as his memory from then is vague while the dagger they used was different from the one presented. This helps him get out of the situation while defending against Tagon’s plan set up for him and Taealha.
The meeting soon comes to an end without much result; but following the meeting, Tanya and Eunseom finally reunite properly and share a passionate kiss filled with longing for each other. Eunseom then tells Tanya all about what happened after he left Arthdal and how he became the Inaishingi.
Tanya then asks him about Saya and is about to reveal the big plans that need the involvement of the three when Taealha arrives. Tanya excuses herself after which Taealha finally confronts Eunseom and asks him who he really is.
Arthdal Chronicles Season 2 Episode 3 Review
Arthdal Chronicles The Sword of Aramoon episode 3 brings big twists and a wicked Eunseom who is ready to wreak havoc in his own way in Arthdal. This episode also brings the long-awaited kiss that we have been waiting for more than eight Arthdal years and it was worth the wait.
The reunited lovers of Wahan have brought in the feeling that we have all been waiting for, and luckily, even with different faces, they are able to leave us with a filled-up heart. Adding on. I really appreciate the feeling Lee Joon-gi and Shin Se-kyung have been able to keep from the first season while also bringing a unique maturity to the show.
Altogether, we have been brought to yet another wonderful episode and the story of Arthdal is only getting better.
