JoAnne: *raises fist and curses the sky* Xiajiaaang!
Eleanor: Xia Jiang. Evil. Pure EVIL that one.
I like this old man.
Me too. This episode in some ways seems quiet but at the same time super tense. *bites nails*
Yes, what is going on? I bet Prince Ji is way smarter and more useful than he seems. He probably only acts like a party boy so his brother the emperor doesn't get paranoid and have him killed.
For reals. I would probably act like a complete idiot if the Emperor were my brother. Unbalanced and unpredictable, paranoid. Not a good combination. And Fei Liu hee hee. So cute.
Poor Prince Yu, all your petty maneuvering just isn't going right for you, is it?
At least he has nice robes.
This is too easy, though. So we know it won't work. By the way - Consort Yu? (Yes, I know it's not her name, I don't know her name.) Truly gorgeous robe.
Crap. AS if we didn't have enough to deal with the rescue, now Consort Jing's life is potentially on the line. Hopefully the Emperor is lenient because he's the one who told her to make the memorial tablet.
*sigh* this plan had better work!
Awww, look at our Sunshine Boy practicing strategery!
I really love Yujin. He really is sunshiney.
If it's Fei Lui I will throw something.
Ooh! The plot thickens. Su knows the exact sort of thing that Xia Jiang cannot resist. This is going to be good! *rubs hands gleefully*
*sits on hands so as not to bite nails*
Seriously. It's a miracle if our hands survive this episode.
Wow, I thought they always just looked the other way or plotted revenge on the mistress. I didn't know that wives ever left.
If I were married to Xia Jiang, I would leave too. Also, I adore Marquis Yan. He is so awesome.
Xiajiang is very suspicious of this whole conversation ... why did Marquis Yan call him out today? Marquis Yan did not know where she went, like everybody else ... but 5 years ago, she contacted him. Why him? Because everybody else she trusted has since been eliminated by Xiajiang. The news Yan received was this: Xiajiang's wife is mortally ill (dead already?) and his son... died. At a very early age. Yan has a letter to prove it. Yikes. Marquis Yan is SO BRAVE, I'd be deadly afraid of this man. His whole demeanor is scary as hell.
This is the ultimate fuck you. Wow.Marquis Yan is the man. I would be terrified Xia Jiang would slit my throat or something.
So smart, this man.
Well now we will see what he's going to do. Man, they are just sitting there drinking tea and I'm so tense. I need a shoulder massage. Stat.
Because neither of those things will seem suspicious later, when they go over the details of the attack.
I'm hoping there is a good excuse. Su Zhe wouldn't do something haphazardly. *crosses fingers*
Okay but that would mean that he knew before this visit that today was the day, and he didn't. Unless he just always had the guy somewhere else, for whenever. I think that was probably it.
I think so. He's been preparing for a rescue from before they even captured him. Crap.
CommentsJust kill me now. Seriously! You, drama! This was a mean, mean, MEAN episode. We are made to believe that all is going well, all the officers are lured away, as planned, but then... Xiajiang shows us how cunning he really is. I hate him so much.
I like watching him though.
I also love how nothing action-y happened and yet it was so intense.
Nirvana in Fire knows how to create suspense with very, very little. We are at a taoist temple, and Marquis Yan (I LOVE HIM) is playing his card so well, slowing everything waaaay down with his tea and his way of speaking ... but then it goes down the drain in a wink. Ahhhhhh!
I really thought he'd die.
This drama. I think my nails are gone.
