JoAnne: I will just quietly point out the swell of a well-formed chest and the appeal of an adam's apple. Also a strong nose and a noble brow. We will ignore that I am squeeing over a dead body.
I didn't think he meant come back to that body, okay...
I'm confused. Is he Mo Yuan or is he someone else? I assumed he was some kind of delayed twin. Did Mo Yuan come from a lotus, too?
What is he waiting for? Manifest, Lotus. Come on! Is it Mo Yuan's soul that will make him real?
So she's a gumiho in other words? But not a liver-stealing one?
Man, that was satisfying.
Little cutie pie.
I don't get the dislike of Dijun that seems to be pretty universal. (And I don't feel it, either.)
It's where they're headed anyway. Yang Cuo (1st Heaven Prince) expresses concerns about Si Yin harboring resentment against the Ghosts - and she rudely tells him to get lost. Haha, I love her. Truth is, she wouldn't seek revenge anyway, because her Master's sacrifice was for peace. She is just angry. She goes to be with her Master's corpse, while the Golden Lotus spirit is all concerned ... somebody touched him without permission! What this means is: he cannot stay with her. He will now assume human form, but the thing is: he won't remember anything about her. And then he fades. Does she hear his last whispered "A-Yin"? Yes, she does!
So in all that time, no one ever ever ever touched the flower? Or was it just that the right someone has now touched it?
I assumed she touched it and that it withered because the spirit is no longer with it. But she's just going to touch it now, and it comes back to life, but we soon learn that the spirit is definitely not with that flower now. Hint: it's in her belly. So confusing. Who touched it? Why would it come back to life when clearly its reason for existing has moved on?
Can we please just redeem him? Can she just have both of them?
I'm not puzzled that she likes him - have you seen him? Well actually, he doesn't treat her very well so why she STILL likes him is a mystery, but yeah, I can't drum up a drop of sympathy for her. I'm quite glad he loathes her. He also loathes himself, but that makes me feel sympathetic toward him.
I wondered when Master died, why they stayed in that place. They were never there forever, and now basically the school is closed. Right? Si Yin drinks them all under the table and then bids their unconscious bodies goodbye. To prevent Mo Yuan's impending funeral, she steals his body and brings it to Qing Qiu, the Fox Realm.
This is getting a little creepy, Si Yin.
Yeah, more than a little creepy.
CommentsAfter the excitement of the battle episode, this was a slow one. It was about Si Yin coming to terms with her Shifu's death ... or rather, not. She believes in his promise to come back and is ready to sacrifice her own life for it, drop by drop. I do hope she won't just die there. This can't be healthy.
Mentally OR physically.
I was sad to see the Golden Lotus go - and he clearly was quite panicked about it. It looks like Lady Le Xu will be blessed with a child soon, doesn't it? I am very curious to see what kind of "human" the Golden Lotus will turn out to be. Will it keep its difficult character? That could be fun.
He never really seemed difficult or grumpy to me... he always seemed to be fond of Si Yin and, at most, concerned/worried about her.
This also was an episode of goodbyes. We won't see these Disciples again ... at least not like this. I'm sad about it. It also was a (painful) goodbye from former 2nd Prince, now Ghost King. I am sorry that Si Yin couldn't part in friendship with him - but it might be for the better. I do hope they won't meet under different circumstances later, you know, in a situation where she has to make a decision about his life or death.
Oh God, no.
