JoAnne: I can't really kick a man when he's down, though. Not too hard, anyway - and it's not like I don't like him, I do. I just want him to get past this mopey place.
That seems unreasonable. Why would the Holy Flame, alone of all things, have no weakness? Wouldn't that mean that the Fire Tribe would naturally be in charge of everything?
I did think about what that made the Holy Flame too. The Fire King has weaknesses, the Holy Flame does not. Ergo, the Holy Flame is the Fire Tribe leader. Stuff like that. Yes, this show makes me think deep thoughts.
Two things: First, yes, he drew it out. With magic, I believe. That magic that he keeps saying he doesn't have. Second: That being the case, why didn't they just do this ages ago?
Well, it's true that it wouldn't have worked without Shi, but poor Kasuo, they don't give him any credit now and he could really use a pat on the back.
It starts snowing. People are happy. I could point out that it did snow before (it's all on camera, as Saki likes to say!), but I don't want to spoil anyone's joy. The Ice King picks something from the air and presents it to his sons: it's cute little ice balls that make baby noises.
I'm just sitting here shaking my head.
You've said your piece, now go away.
I was wondering why he bothered with any of this since he doesn't even want to be king, so I was happy for the reminder and it let me overlook the idiocy.
Dead man walking. Besides, everyone says he won't live to be a hundred, except this show started with his 130th birthday, so...
They're not good at math it seems.
Someone ate something heavy right before bed?
If it's destiny, it shouldn't matter.
I laughed so HARD.
How subtle of you, Dad.
Li Luo, I don't think the king gives a shit about the mayfly. The Ice King turns around and says gravely: The mayfly may have been happy, but the immortal crane only had one single day of happiness and 1000 years of loneliness. Well, if you put it that way......... to get rid of Li Luo for sure, the Ice King promotes her to Guardian General, to take the place of Ketuo.
Uh, Dad, your crane is already on borrowed time though. So why not just let things be?
Well he has one thing in common with the Ice Tribe - he is very late to arrive at this question.
Mom, I'm not sure why any of this is only now worrying you. You've always known he wasn't Ice Tribe. And by the way, if he's not, what's with the white hair and blue eyes? Do you come in and make him over while he sleeps?
CommentsOkay, it's kinda official now that Shi isn't the Ice King's son. We also know that the Seven Saints have seen something in his future that scared them a lot, so I get why they don't want him as king. The Ice King's plan to expose this is actually quite smart. Shi won't be able to cultivate his Ice Baby and Kasuo can - even though he has no powers. Still, without powers, Kasuo is not going to be a very useful king, so what are you going to do about that, Ice King?
Quick, make another baby!
At the same time, the Ice King wants Li Luo as far away from the Ice City as possible ... and it looks like his Mayfly story made the necessary impression on her. This plus Kasuo's noble idiocy doesn't bode well for this couple. But can they really keep away from each other? Sometimes, love is too strong.
Yeah, we know the answer to this one.
