JoAnne: He's just smart enough to be dangerous.
Eleanor: Ack. Nooo. We don't need more trouble! There's already plenty.
And us. We heard you. But we were thinking it, too.
Yeah. I would be super careful saying that too loudly there Minister Shen. Also, Jingyan's outfit. I love it.
But isn't that why they have peasants? To grow money?
Haha. Su Zhe creates his own lightning!
Hoist him by his own petard! I've always wondered what a petard was. Well, not since Google came along, otherwise I'd already know. Huh? It's fireworks. A type of firework. I always pictured a guy hanging from the waist band of his tighty whities, stretched up around his neck. I think I'll continue with that.
I also just googled it, interesting, a type of bomb used to blow up gates etc. when breaching fortifications. That's actually quite fitting here. They are totally blowing up all the corrupt officials' fortifications of power.
Ha! Not only does he not get this money, but he's out the money he would have gotten on the upcoming trip, too!
Hahahahaha. I like this lightning!
But it would be smart to go in very cleanly and then start skimming a little bit at a time, in later years when everyone doesn't even look at you because you are so beyond reproach. #NOOODon'tDoThis #AnyAdviceGivenHereIsForEntertainmentOnly #RememberTheGoldenRule #WhichIAlwaysConfusedWithGoldenMean #Couldn'tFigureOutWhatBeingNiceHadToDoWithMath
Jingyan is too stubborn about being good and principled to be bad. Haha. Righteous Prince Jing :)
He might just as well have gone on Punk'd with Ashton Kutcher and gotten it over with.
Hahaha. Well it took them long enough to realize. Man, Yu looks really angry there.
But isn't that the only reason she wants to use him? What am I forgetting in my dotage?
There are some other reasons, but they haven't been revealed yet at this point in the drama I believe.
Pretty robe. Shame she wasted it on that hair. I want those limp locks to suddenly flap like a bird and fly her ass away. Also, I don't know why it is, but on these two the normal robes just look like pajamas.
Ooh. Prince Yu knows Jingyan's weakness. This is NOT going to go well.
THAT scumbag is currently trying the assassinate the Grand Princess because of Xie Yu's letter. She is lucky this time, but I really fear for her life! Luckily, on a hunch, Mei Changsu has her guards doubled and her even more carefully watched.
Why is his bun thing so tall? Overcompensating?
He has a lot of hair? I am sure the hairpiece accessories have meaning. Maybe to do with rank? Or maybe I am over interpreting.
She's clever, this woman. I will enjoy watching her go up against Mei Changsu. I will enjoy even more watching him take her down.
*restrains self from saying to much* Let's just say this is really interesting looking back at this in hindsight.
Why wouldn't you just accept everything? Who accepts part of a gift?
It's Consort Jing. She will have a reason. And a good one at that.
I do like hazelnut myself. Prince Jing and I are clearly meant for each other.
Um, no. Jingyan is mine. Also, I am in love with hazelnuts and all hazelnut related things. Dang it! I totally fell for JoAnne's baited comment ;P
He makes me want tea. And fur, because it's chilly even inside today. I particularly like this navy/white combo. Very clean and fresh.
I wonder if tea sales in China radically climbed during the airing of this drama. Please tell me they did. I know I feel like making some right now just watching that gif.
Because making a point of yet one more similarity won't expose him or anything. At least, not to Jing. We're sure of that, at least.
Hazelnut pastries. *cries* moonlil and Joyce told me something about the novel and the pastries and now I am sad. If you want a spoiler, you can ask them. But really it's lovely. Also, Fei Liu needs some more pastries. hahaha.
I already feel bad for Tonglu and his eventual realization.
Yeah, that isn't going to be good.
CommentsCan Prince Jing come back quickly, please? Fei Liu wants more dessert, Su Zhe needs a friend, and everybody needs to make sure none of those evil plans come to fruition. Luckily, Prince Yu does not try to hurt Mei Changsu directly at the moment, which I am super grateful for. He looks so frail when he is ill...
Yu's too sneaky for direct confrontation anyway, I think.
Also, I miss Prince Jing.
And Consort Jing! Ha! We already suspected she knew, but now we have proof. I really want to know what in the travelogue tipped her off: was it indeed his mother's maiden name that he abridged? I am sure she is also missing her son, because her life has not gotten any easier since Jingyan got his nice golden pearly crown.
But at least she gets gifts, and more visits!
She is smart that woman. I love her.
