An able statesman in times of peace, a treacherous villain in times of war. Cao Cao truly is On One this episode, suppressing rebellions, recruiting heroes, and starting blood feuds. Lu Bu’s ego is keeping him from holding down a job, and Xuande’s obsession with honor and optics is preventing him from taking one. Amongst it all, the followers of Dong Zhuo fumble, uncertain of how power works, but thrive because no one seems to care that much. Wonder how many more chapters they’ll last….
