JoAnne: Is it bad of me to be more curious about the little kid in the picture than in the fate of that witch?
Dammit, I do feel sorry for him. A little bit - because he IS sorry and ashamed, and because of his chivalry toward Xuan Nu. Even if that comes from guilt, because ewww, he was totally using her. But I am totally team Si Yin in this.
No waffling for this girl. I like that.
I totally did not pick up on that at all. Not at any point. But I might have been a bit distracted by the sincerity of Mo Yuan's wish to comfort her in her distress over another man, when in fact he himself loves her. Hey, look, 2P: here's how a good man behaves when he loves someone and thinks he can't have her.
Yes, so Senior Disciple and the other students talk about the Xuan Nu-love affair in this episode. There's also that bit where Si Yin asks Master "You knew"? And he quickly deflects. I'm pretty sure she either meant "that I'm in love with Li Jing" and/or "that I'm a woman".
Gee, I wonder who will be sacrificed.
Why are they always in the water with clothes on? Why?
This, more than anything, broke my heart. Because he isn't bad, he's weak. I hate that his father is right about him. I thought once he fell for Si Yin, he'd return to his better self and stay there. It would still be tragic for him because come on, he's the second lead - but at least we wouldn't be disappointed in him.
The look on 2P's face as he realizes just how sly she really is... and maybe begins to understand how seriously he got played.
I was surprised at how sincerely happy and excited she seemed to be. Did she really think he had come to care for her? His kind treatment of her came from guilt, not affection. I don't think she realized that.
I'm not sure about her, she seems very deranged.
I did not feel bad for her at all. And by the way, this whole sequence of events - how gorgeous was all of this?
That look he gives her cracked me up.
Would he have been aware of that? I guess he must have been. It must have been? I don't know.
So was that beating real but also fake? How much of this does 2P know about?
I got the notion this sick woman actually almost enjoyed being beaten like this.
CommentsI love Mo Yuan. The way he speaks (always so kindly, softly), the way he looks at Si Yin, his measured, controlled movement. But I am worried. We saw that he is in a lot of pain and we saw that those who cannot hide their emotions as well as him and the bored supergod are extremely anxious. I am REALLY anxious becuase of Xuan Nu though. What a horrible, horrible person. These people were so kind to her and took her in when she didn't want to marry a bear. And now, she seems to take pleasure in betraying them. Just wow.
She's always been jealous of Si Yin (or rather, Bai Qian), who has 'everything' simply by accident of birth. But what has Kunlun Mountain done to her? Nothing! She doesn't care a bit for them - they're simply the casualty of her twisted hatred for Si Yin.
It seems Si Yin is quite fine already (who wouldn't be if they were travelling through pure dimensions with Mo Yuan), but Li Jing clearly isn't - and won't be. His blunder is much worse than we first thought, actually. Xuan Nu is a witch, not some weak woman who just wanted a man. His life will be a living hell, even if he never shares a bed with her again.
Man, when he messes up he really does it right. Poor guy. I don't think he quite deserves the hell he landed in.
