kakashi: Ye Hua gets to take his Qian Qian to his home in this episode and he is so excited about it ... and nervous at the same time. Things are a bit awkward between them nowadays. No wonder, with a High God like Mo Yuan looming. JoAnne: He's like a teenage boy, our Ye Hua. It's cute.
SakiVI: Finally, a finale! And a surprisingly funny ending, too. Trotwood: I didn't get what they were trying to do with this ending--not the plot questions nor the tone. But then again, I gave up understanding anything about any of the choices when we were at the glacier episodes. kakashi: Back when I watched this - that was when blogging was not yet dominated by 3310 - I really liked the ending. It gave me a good feeling. And even though it's very open ended, it gave me closure. JoAnne: Wow, it feels like a lifetime ago. Three lifetimes. No Peach Blossoms in the desert. But maybe in our dessert?
kakashi: Raving mad and yet, pitiful, that is our Xuan Nu. This recap is in honor of her. JoAnne: I can think of two, maybe three 'villainous' women I've actually liked in a drama - Xuan Nu, damn her, is among that list. I don't like her, actually, but I respect her hustle.
We Have a New Look! Don't be scared, it's still us.
I'll work out a few bugs in the next few days and from time to time, I'll change to color, to confuse everyone. Sorry if you don't like it, I'm definitely not going back to the old design :)
kakashi: I almost don't believe it myself but I am actually looking forward to a KDrama! It's Whisper and it starts today.
SakiVI: Trying out Tunnel, too. Mostly because everyone in it is so pretty! Trotwood: Whisper is another show (like The Defendant) that I will be too anxious to watch the set up and will start watching half way through when the real revenge starts. JoAnne: Kakashi has been lured by the bare shoulders of Dimples, one of her favorites. But it does look good. (For those keeping track of my spiral into madness, get a flashlight. It's getting deep.)
kakashi: Gestures of love are made and one of the main villains is identified. We are close to the end, but everything seems open. It's a nailbiter. Eleanor: Wait, wow it really is close to the end and yeah, so many loose ends. But I'm going to take a minute here and just pretend that's me with Ji Bai. Trotwood: I'll pretend, too, with me taking the picture. JoAnne: As long as you're already set up with the camera, will you pretend one of me too? With Ji Bai, I mean.
kakashi: Poor Ye Hua. There is not much of that eager puppy enthusiasm left ... okay, scratch that. He is still very eager, but Bai Qian isn't, or at least, she is making him doubt everything about him and her. It's a new phase of heartache for our Crown Prince brought on by her panicked rejection of his deep feelings. It hurts. JoAnne: Not as much as having your eyes plucked out though, I bet.
kakashi: This episode is a complete dud in the beginning (mortal Dijun, bleh) and kicks major ass in the end. Bai Qian is fierce when she protects what she loves. I adore her. JoAnne: I love that an innocuous little hand-held fan kicks ass, too.
kakashi: We did it, my friends! We're at the end! We are still alive! Can't say as much about most of the Ice Fantasy characters, but that couldn't be helped. Millions of fans hated the ending, but I totally love it. SakiVI: I was sad at the ending. I was also annoyed. I'll explain why below. JoAnne: I am so looking forward to this!
