I’m following Payitaht Abdülhamid for the past 4 years. Currently, the last season (season 5) is about to end. Finally, Mason pasha will disclose his identity in episode 144 (next Friday). The most interesting thing I watched this week was the trailer of the 144th episode. Mahmoud Pasha, who pretended to be handicapped and unable to walk in order to distract any suspects against him, is the real Mason pasha. This is pretty logical because he is a relative to Sultan Murad (fifth, V). The guy displayed the utmost loyalty to Sultan Abdulhamid but he was the nearest and most dangerous traitor. No one could ever think of him as the traitor Mason pasha; this is a cognitive bias called the “tendency for closure”.
