JoAnne: Ha. I see what you did there.
So IS he Mo Yuan V2 or not? If he is, what's going to happen to that body in the mountains? Well, now in the fox den?
So when she was 500 years old Heavenly Father told her foster parents to go to Kunlun mountain, which they did seemingly right away, and then they came back pretty quickly and after a few days Mom spent 7 days in labor and now suddenly Su Jin is 19'500 years older?
She's very, very pretty.
Mi Gu is adorable, isn't he? And yes, I too noticed that there was a bit of chemistry between Bai Zhen and the snake spirit girl, but he's nobility and she's not so that won't work, right?
I get the feeling that he thinks all girls are a nuisance except for his awesome sister.
Well, maybe that's supposed to happen. Maybe her spirit gets reborn too and that's how they find each other again.
Why can't they just call it a mushroom? It's a mushroom.
Yes, a magic mushroom.
I feel like magic mushrooms probably explain a lot of Chinese fantasy.
So, mommy gives Bai Qian half of her essence and because mommy is more powerful than her daughter, Bai Qian (I will now call her that because she's back to being a woman!) now has more power than she had before. Also, this mother does not scold her daughter for one second, not even about the fact that it's her blood only that needs to be given to Mo Yuan from now on. No, this mother thinks it's only right her daughter pays this man back for what he did for her during her ascension.
She's a good mom.
At Kunlun, Senior Disciple dissolves the school. Si Yin is gone and so is their Master ... there is no point in staying. He vows he will find them if he has to search his whole life. They put Mo Yuan's sword into a wooden box and then leave. I think this is the saddest moment of the whole drama so far...
All those rooms emptying out and darkening, doors slowly closing... it was very sad, indeed. One of the schools I attended burned down last month, so I felt their loss personally.
Li Jing also tries to see Si Yin (he wants to give her the Soul Jade now!) and even comes to Kunlun, but they chase him away. The look on his face when he realizes she is gone, maybe forever...It makes no practical difference for him but I got what he was feeling. It's one thing to lose someone, but know where they are and be able to picture them and even have some idea of what's happening with them. It's a comfort, in a way. They aren't really gone from you if you can 'see' them in your mind. But if she's gone who knows where, she's really gone from him. He can't place her, he has no knowledge of her life or whether she even lives or dies. It's a loss all over again.
Dijun the Spin Doctor. I dig it.
70'000 years later
70'000 years later, Mo Yuan is still as beautiful as ever and Bai Qian is more beautiful than ever. She tells his motionless body that it is seven days before Qing Cang, the former Ghost Lord, will break the seal and comes out from the bell. WHAT?! But not to worry - she will do everything in her power to seal him back in.
Girl, you better.
Like that's ever going to happen.
Okay, but a month is like, an eye-blink for them. It's nothing. Less than nothing. And how do we feel about Shao Xin in this matter? It's not quite Xuan Nu-level betrayal, and the fact is that Bai Qian has NO interest in this guy anyway, but still, somehow, it doesn't sit well. Not least because of those eyes she made at 4th Brother a while back. Does she just glom onto ANY guy she thinks will be good for her?
It did rub me the wrong way too, but I think she's sincere. She is very much in love. But she's also very naive and maybe a bit dumb.
And I quietly mourn the loss of facial hair.
His looks will grow on you, I promise.
I wonder if a Lion Baby is going to appear at some point, then.
Maybe part of the reason I don't trust her is that snakes are typically portrayed as untrustworthy?
CommentsOhhhhhh, intriguing. We only got a glimpse of the Crown Prince, but he strikes me as extremely stiff (way more stiff than Mo Yuan, and he already was quite stiff) and maybe a bit of an ass. What Sang Ji did is certainly very improper and I'm thrilled to learn what will happen. Because they did nothing during the War, I despise those princes, but I will give them another chance. Sang Ji seems truly in love (and so does she) and gossipy 3rd uncle seems fun.
I buy Sang Ji's feelings but I'm on the fence about her.
The real crisis we're facing though is the Bell! The Bell-seal will break! It's good Mo Yuan told Si Yin, but is she the only one who knows?! I don't know, missy, but it took your extremely powerful master's life to seal the Ghost King in, do you really think you can do it alone?! It's also intriguing that that Golden Beast made a reappearance ... does it probably know his master will soon be up and about again?
I'm guessing yes? Also, here's what I wonder: when Ghost Dad comes back, what happens to Li Jing as the current Ghost King? Do you really think Dad's going to just sit around drinking fruity drinks and maybe taking up golf in his retirement?
Last, not least: the Fox family. I can't say it often enough, they are all so awesome. A loving, supporting family.
Yeah, they're pretty cool.
