The Duke of Death and His Maid Episode 9 Spoilers
In episode 8, Duke’s mother confesses that she still looks at her elder son as the true heir even though she had previously expressed her reservations about it in past. Even Viola believes Duke is the right fit which naturally infuriates his younger brother Walter. When Duke’s sister visits his mansion, she attacks Cuff, thinking that she is an intruder.
However, the witch was visiting Bocchan to learn to read and write because she really wanted to impress Zain. When Rob finds Viola apprehending Cuff, he immediately intervenes to clarify things. Meanwhile, Alice is lost in her thoughts, thinking about the time she first came to the mansion to help the Duke. Initially, Bochhan hated her and made her life miserable in every possible manner, but his childhood friend refused to leave her alone and stuck with him through thick and thin.
However, the curse, the accompanying isolation from his loved ones’ and his annoyance with Alice forced the Duke to run away. He was lucky that Alice soon followed him as he almost died in the cold. The maid ended up scolding Bocchan and reminded him that he always stood by her side when she was young, so he is important to her and, therefore, should not think of throwing his life away.
Her emotional appeal moves the Duke, who agrees to go back to the mansion and realizes that he may have fallen in love with her. In episode 9, Bocchan will celebrate Christmas with his childhood best friend, Alice. The duo will also share a vow with one another and will spend some quality time with one another.
