JoAnne: Well, at least there's that. Remember that 13 seconds or so when we wondered if he was too sexy and maybe we wouldn't even fall for the beardless Ye Hua anyway? Ahh, we were so young and innocent.
I don't understand why they went to the effort to make it look as though the Mermaid King was so heartbroken. They did absolutely nothing with it. They made him a tiny little bit, er, "human"? Sidenote: I find the little eye fins less distressing than the temple horns, but damn, those mermen were FUGLY.
Playing that a little close, eh, Ye Hua?
Fucking Su Jin. God damn it.
God damn you, too, Ye Hua. You are not strong on the planning front.
I thought it was a little weird that this was the thing that saved her. If a relationship with her is such an abomination, surely any result of that union would be even more of one? It's not like they're going to raise him as a precious heir or anything - we all know they'll treat that kid like dirt. I'd have thought her being pregnant would be even more of a reason to make her go away. Why save her because she's pregnant, but then treat her this roughly and risk the pregnancy anyway?
I know what you mean, but I think anything related to Ye Hua is valued immensely in this shitty place (even more so at this moment, when they do not know whether he is alive or dead), hence, also the child.
That is the face of a man who knows he has fucked up. Royally, if you'll pardon the joke.
FINE. Yes, I'm talking tough but my heart is breaking, damn it.
Good shoulders too. Nice and straight, and the muscle definition throughout is quite nice. Plus my GOD do I want to drape myself in his hair.
The Ghosts have a reason to be worried too, now - seeing how the Mermaids are part of the Ghost Tribe, it is possible the Celestials might seek blame with them. Xuan Nu says she doesn't give a fuck about this, but when she sees the invitation to the Lord of Numinous Treasure's assembly, she goes and seeks her husband out. He is living in the mortal realm now, I guess as far away as possible from her.
Can't exactly blame him. I keep going back and forth between wanting to shake him, wanting to get in his face and remind him this is ALL his fault, and feeling terribly sorry for him. You?
Damn, dude. Anyone but her. Well, not Su Jin either, not that she would.
He has nothing. I can see why he'd have a moment of happiness at the thought of a child, before reality sets in. And yeah, I've finally decided she genuinely ...well, not loves him, since it's clear that she's not capable of actual love, but she genuinely wants his affection and interest - and I think if she had it, she'd probably back off the evil a bit.
Later, at the Ghost Palace, her and the shaman exchange secretive glances when Li Jing wants to know why she is feeling so unwell so early in her pregnancy. The shaman says something about the incompatibility of a Celestial and a Demon/Ghost, but hmmm, something's up. Oh and she twists her husband's arm into taking her with him to the Heavens.
I hate her but she always looks so good.
Oh no, Ye Hua isn't well, not well at all! Su Jin barges in but gets kicked out by Uncle Three straight away. Seriously, how dare she?!
She gives me heartburn, that's how much I hate her.
Up in the Palace, Su Su is being mistreated by everyone, even the maids disrespect her. She still has no word about Ye Hua and the copper mirror remains mute. Only ... the other one, it's in Su Jin's hands, and she hears you! And she clearly doesn't like the implications of what it means to have someone call for Ye Hua this way.
Who gives a flying fuck what you think, Su Jin? No one. No one at all.
I have a confession: I find this habit of Feng Jiu's (inserting herself in other people's business) to be quite irritating.
Uhhh, hate to break it to you, Poison Womb, but if there's no heart beat you've already lost this child.
Gasp! Li Jing will know who she is! She'll be saved!
I'm not crazy about the head piece, Li Jing.
Yes, it's called 'convenience of plot.'
Yay, sexy Ghost Lord is back! This was one of the highlights of this episode. The rest ... lowlights. I hate to see Su Su suffering so much. It is so cruel. She doesn't understand what's going on, she is terrified and the worst is not knowing whether Ye Hua is dead or alive.
She does seem a bit...hmm...overtaxed by the slightest mental exertion, does she not?
Ye Hua's breakdown was just as horrible. How can he live on, now that his love is in the hands of his brutal grandfather? He knows she will likely be killed once she has given birth to his child. He has made many mistakes, but he does not deserve this.
I know I've been hard on the boy, but I do agree with you.
