Maestra’ Episode 9 Recap & Ending Explained: Who Had Poisoned Cha Seeum?



So, the episode kicks off with a major bombshell – Cha Seeum’s sudden resignation. Our fearless, workaholic violinist, who seemed invincible, has thrown in the towel. The orchestra is left in shock, especially since Seeum was their guiding light. But, as we soon find out, her reasons go beyond a mere career change.

Seeum’s health takes a toll, and suspicions of Remington’s disease loom large. Her fear intensifies as she grapples with memory loss surrounding Bongju’s death. The haunting echoes of her mother’s warnings – “Do not let the monster catch her” – add to her turmoil. Seeum is convinced she has Remington’s and acts accordingly, turning in her resignation and disappearing without a trace.


Phil’s Last-Ditch Effort

Enter Phil, the estranged husband with a knack for emotional manipulation. He rushes to the hotel where Seeum is, desperate to prove his love and care. But rules and regulations stand in his way. On the flip side, Jeongjae, armed with influence, manages to find Seeum. Their silent companionship unfolds over the next couple of days, leaving Jeongjae hopelessly in love.

However, a twist awaits in the dustbin – notes from Seeum to her father, hinting at a prolonged absence. Jeongjae realizes this might be a final farewell, and his world shatters. Despite offering any treatment and suggesting a life together, Seeum remains silent, leaving Jeongjae in suspense.


Unraveling the Poison Mystery

As if Seeum’s emotional turmoil wasn’t enough, the episode drops a bomb about her poisoning. In the previous episode, blood near Bongju was suspected to be Seeum’s, but it belonged to another woman. Ajin, pregnant and paranoid, grows more anxious. Luna, the obsessive lover, makes her move, suspecting everyone in Seeum’s life, even sleeping with Taeho for information.

Luna’s revelation about Seeum being poisoned before her performance shocks her father. Luna implicates Taeho and Jeongjae through incriminating messages. The episode ends with Seeum confronting Jeongjae, accusing him of poisoning her to manipulate her into a relationship.


My Take on the Drama Rollercoaster

Now, let’s talk about the bigger picture. Maestra: Strings of Truth seems to be entangled in the Remington’s disease subplot. Seeum’s life and the series itself are defined by this ailment. Can we get a break from Remington’s, please? I mean, even Jeongjae’s alleged crime revolves around this disease, adding more predictability to the narrative.

Speaking of Jeongjae, his obsessive love for Seeum is on full display. While I doubt he’s the culprit, the show is doing a good job of keeping us on our toes. Could there be a subplot not entwined with Remington’s, or is that too much to ask?

In conclusion, Maestra: Strings of Truth continues to keep us hooked, even if it occasionally stumbles on its own subplots. With accusations flying and mysteries deepening, we’re left eagerly waiting for the next episode. Will Seeum’s accusation hold water, or is there another twist waiting to unfold?
