Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms 三生三世十里桃花 - Episode 17 (Recap)
JoAnne: If she only knew...
We used to eat melon balls soaked in vodka... I should do that again this summer.
I wish this thing would start, already. I need him to be a fool, a little bit.
Come on, man...wallow in the cuteness! You know you want to.
Does everyone agree that he just keeps adding to the debt so she'll have to spend her life near him? Or is he thinking to overwhelm her and send her away, and then only later will realize he isn't happy without her?
Haha, he's so pleased with himself.
Just tell her! Why can't you tell her!
That's right babies, stick together. Stick together and be happy.
Yes, she's dressed as a man again.
They are adorable, aren't they? This must be really painful for us later, Kakashi, if they're this cute now.
They look like a bunch of Smurfs who spend all their money on really ill-advised body mods.
Die Feng does a double take over Ye Hua, too. It's a whole series of them all gaping at each other, it was sort of funny. I'm so happy to see Die Feng again! He looks much better in armor than he did as a disciple, though.
I really like Die Feng's get-up. He did go a little crazy on the bedazzler though.
And yet she continues to insist she just wants everyone to get along. Get a clue, girl. Ain't gonna happen.
That green princess, I don't like her.
The cute. The cute, oh my God the cute. It's killing me.
I don't follow that logic, but I also don't really care. Ye Hua is smiling.
The logic is: he will "dead" soon and will live in the mortal realm with his love, never to be seen again in the Heavens. I wonder what he means to do once Su Su dies ... but I guess he hasn't thought that far.
I understand why it doesn't matter to him, but it still doesn't make stealing okay.
Make it eleven, Ye Hua.
Stop. Do not mess with my happiness.
The bowls of nuts that appear regularly in this drama make me laugh, for some reason. For one, it looks like an ancient Chinese fantasy version of a can, complete with label. PPL for ancient times. It has to be, right? Because they spend time each time, showing how much people are enjoying the nuts.
At least 70'000 years, probably.
These people act like mortals are pets.
CommentsThis was a surprisingly busy episode. I was happy that Ye Hua decided to take Su Su with him to Chang Sea... but I'm worried, too. Die Feng (so happy to have him back!!) even told him to send her away from this place, because it is not safe with the impending war.
And yet, I get Ye Hua. It is a tiny bit selfish of him to even have brought her this far and it necessitates that he lies to her about many, many things, but rather than have her turn old and withered in that lonely hut, he wants to enjoy her company one more day, one more night.
I get it, too, but his selfishness goes back much farther than that, really. He never should have started up in the first place. But I'm so glad he did, of course.
Everything is tinged with sadness though. The Peach Blossom trip was so beautiful and she enjoyed it so, so much ... and yet, it feels like it's over before it even started.
Yes, the whole thing has the feel of colossal failure and miscalculation on the part of Ye Hua. I'm sad.
Also, the lying has to stop. Su Su is already insecure about things, because he never tells her anything and a woman can't live on "trust me" alone.
Damn straight she can't.
