Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms 三生三世十里桃花 - Episode 6 (Recap)
JoAnne: I reject this reality. In this fantasy. Do not want.
When I stop giggling. I particularly love the little metal ponytail but I feel like it should be articulated so that it swings in the breeze when he strides manfully across the plains. He's so handsome, though, isn' the?
Is this outfit made out of gum?
That's not actually very long though, when she's been a student for 20'000.
We knew he knew, though. The first part, at least.
I laughed and said there's ALWAYS a warrior with a damn zither, what's up with the zithers, China? And then the strings broke and I thought 'ooooops'.
I thought they were butterflies. This battle formation was cool AF.
2P! I saw 2P! Don't die, you weak baby. Redeem yourself! Well, maybe he has to die to do that.
'We're here for the experience.' It's not fucking Burning Man, guys.
I love Ninth. But right about here I was mostly thinking 'who wears white to a war?'
I swore to God last night that those were the Ninja Turtles behind the Smurfs.
Seriously, so handsome. And serious. Calm, capable, tender, handsome...we wantzzzz.
Honestly, this was the coolest looking battle I can remember in a long, long time. Maybe ever.
Let's go find that bitch Xuan Nu. Oh hey, there's that man-eating mega stalk of asparagus again.
Nobody else gets punctured up like this, why precious Ninth?
This is just wrong. Wrong! But then again, what other Kunlun death short of Mo Yuan's would have worked here? It was inevitable from a story perspective. I still hate it.
He's the God of War. Aren't Gods invincible? He'll just have to go into seclusion for a really long time, right? Do you hear that note of panic in my voice? Because it is there, let me tell you. It is there.
Very noble of you and we accept. You're still not going to win Mo Yuan. He belongs to Si Yin. Well, to Bai Qian.
(must we repeat? they're here for 'the' experience, not 'to' experience. It's basically a sightseeing trip), the Celestials are able to turn this around - but the price is high, so high... As expected, Yao Guang perishes. She was awesome in the end, RIP. Soon, they have the Ghost forces surrounded, but we all know that there is a little something in the possession of the Ghost Lord, right? It is not surprising that he would rather see the world destroyed than surrender.
'I will not surrender! Instead, I will....kill all of us!' How does that make any sense at all, you idiot?
If he can't have it, nobody can have it.
Ain' t nobody gonna ring that bell.
That broke my heart a little bit, Kakashi. He had hopes of them being together some day. I thought he loved her without hope.
Find the pieces. FIND THEM.
Again, this does not seem like much time, relatively speaking, so it's a very high price to pay. The Ghost Tribe surrenders (Si Yin needs to be subdued by her fellow students not to murder them all on sight.) (I bet that really hurt 2P and his sister, both.) The meddlesome Gods (mainly Dong Hua, who shows the first emotion we've ever seen on him at the word that Mo Yuan is gone) start machinations to make sure Li Jing and not his evil brother Li Yuan succeeds the throne.
Bye-bye. Actually, at first I thought it died because Mo Yuan is gone, and so he's not there to protect it, which was his mission. And then I thought, well - I know that ghostly guy shows up again down the road so...that means that Mo Yuan HAD TO DIE in order for the Lotus to become human? Which means Heavenly Father knew that? FUCKER.
CommentsDamn, can I breathe again?! This was incredibly emotional and even though we saw this coming (all that talk about the Bell was such a giveaway), it's still very hard to deal with. I know he knew it would come to this, but he might have hoped it wouldn't. What the heck does "Wait for me" mean?! Does he want to come back? How does this soul scattering business work?! Why is it 70'000 years? Why did he give her the spell?
I guess in case he died before the bell was employed?
Ah, I was very angry at a few people after all this, mainly those Heavenly Bastards. The sons who came to "get some experience" did absolutely nothing and even told Mo Yuan to reconsider when he came up with the only plan to save them all. Idiots. Well, no wonder with a father like theirs. But more of that later. Dijun also gets on my nerves with his bored detachment. Wanna bet he could have stopped it all? But maybe he is one of those "fate"-believers that do not want to meddle in the ways of the world. Still, idiot.
I believe that Dijun is playing a long game (starting with his retirement) and this is one of those situations where you have to break some eggs to make an omelet. So to speak.
The most awesome (apart from Si Yin, who is just so brave and loyal) was 4th Fox Prince again. See, this is selfless action. Coming in even though he wasn't even part of the army and volunteering to lead troops, being super supportive of his grief-stricken sister again... I really heart him. Please keep him safe, show. Seeing Ninth killed was bad enough. I really liked that boy.
With you, 100%.
CGI wasn't perfect, but it also wasn't bad at all for TV. Comparisons with Games of Thrones are always inevitable nowadays, but such a comparison is unfair. GoT films only one or two huge battle scenes per season and only about 12 episodes altogether.
When I do not even mention CGI (usually because I am laughing hysterically) - you know I am in love with a show.
