I don't feel bad for QH's wife. Marriage with love like ML/GTY was a rare thing back in the days. Most marriages were just like QH's, an arranged marriage where both parties had similar status and they lived together based on a certain set of unspoken rules and etiquette on how to treat each other. QH was the best husband she could have ever dreamed of. Noble, good looking, good career prospect, kind and respect her, dedicated and faithful. After all she was just a complete stranger to him. She maybe the luckiest main wife out there, she just doesn't have his heart, but one can not be too greedy, she's already the one everyone's envious of. We can not use a modern eye to view a marriage in that era. She's got a great catch coming from an arranged marriage.

Serves them good! But I read in the spoilers for the book that ML spoke with the 2nd wife & told her that they are both women & why must they plot against each other...in the book 2nd wife wasn’t a evil woman so I hope they don’t change that

She went to the fifth aunt and tattled about ml pass. And the aunt used the info to force ml to help her. Ml refused and dare her to tell gty.

First clip looks so exciting but they still got so much to do.. Manniang, the fire, the evil stepmom, the death of his son, the poison of granny, the fall of GTY, prison his rise in 20 episode's?

 

Also that girl in the first clip i guess in QH's new bride she is another enemy for ML? i hope not. 

 

It looks like GTY's fall then maybe the poison happens after, while he's away that is when the fire happens then he regain's his status deals with his family the poison stuff happens.

What do you guys think about Grandma's advice? I thought ML was beginning to melt to GTY and then her father and Grandma hardened her again on that trip home. 

@mooose  She had good advice and experience from the Sheng family, ML is a tough nut to crack.. I hope that GTY will be able to break down this barrier.. But at this point ML trust issues with men she don't have any.. I have to admit she do have a point one can trust no one but themselves and thats a motto I live by to this day..

I thought what the grandma and SH both said did make some sense , first time i agreed with SH somewhat i do think that they were a bit to grand and showy and was not really needed. The grandma also knows from experience and knowledge and did not know GTY's true character so i think what she said was wise. 

 

@ForgottenSoulx  I like him also, I see he was kind of suprised how Molan wasn't close to ML and RL.. I don;t think he really knows Molan nature or character even at this point.. You could tell he wanted to join in with the men but by Molan not having all the attention and no one was admiring her she was totally upset..

I like how GTY brought ML back in a grand manner, He did that to let the Sheng household know that his wife isn't someone to be look down upon anymore from the people in this house or anyone else in the capital.. I thought it was done to show SH a thing or two.. The child that he looked down on and negelected, tried to sale her off at every oppourtunity that came up belongs to me now and she shall be treated with such dignity and respect even from you.

 

Molan was so upset at ML grand return she basically called ML a nobody and her husband was a nothing for choosing to marry her.. Yet ML carriage was granted to them by the Emperor. She then replyed to her husband that she should have came back in a three tier carriage.. Now he's supposed to be a Count they should already have these carriages in there home.. He said I'll get you one next time as if they was in a rental then.. She really got bent out of shape hearing Big Mdm speak of her husband new child that she didn't birth..

 

Just got to love RL.. Direct and to the point..Loved it when RL told her why are you here in the Sheng daughter affairs, Next she told ML she's to densed Aunt is after favors for her SIL.. RL saw all through her plan and let her know right then she knows what she was after. Even braindead Big Mdm didn;t pick up on that.. Aunt had planned to use her connecvtion through her sister to get ML to curry her favors.. RK don;t really know how clever her Lil sis is, ML response was priceless she basically told her I have a book full of reciepts of good and bad deeds.. Now what in god nanmes do I owe you come if you want your not going to like it..  I was checking out the wat Aunt was sizing up GTY.. I know ML had to pick up on it.. She had the look in her eye like your not all that but yet at the sametime who could I hook him up with..

Sh maybe right it was showy but he could have said it more delicately abd nit harshly. Beside, he sh have told that to general gu, and not to ml

@leeza77  My thoughts exactly, He should hace went to GTY about the showy display. ML don't have the power to move and army to escort her.. This is GTY job and his way of showing the world how protective he is of her. I think SH wad just jello that he didn;t have and army or bodyguards escorting him, Another thing i think he was upset about is that his pet pea didn't have anyone escorting her and the Count.. Wasn't it back then that each manor had there own army also..? Why is it that Molan household seems so poor when they supposed to be a family of prestiege..

Nice analysis of SH. Judging from the standard at that time, SH was a reasonably good father. Sure, he didn't treat his children equally and fairly, but he provided for them, got them a good education, and made sure they would marry well. In the matter of marriage, he didn't only care about the wealth and status of the families, but the characters of potential son-in-laws and daughter-in-laws. from this one can say he was a responsible father, better than many fathers then.  

I'm sorry @matrim But are we watching the same drama.   Did you not hear what GTY said.. GTY knew if he went and ask SH for ML hand in marriage he would have flatly turned him down regardless to his status because SH was more concerned of his own status.. He wanted them to marry scholars and doctors to hold his own head up high and not having Son In Laws status above his.. Only this way he could still feel the need to walk with his head up high wanting to be the Big Kuhuna.. (In other words even if my sht stink it should still smell like roses to you) SH didn't care if any of those girls got educated.. It was Granny that push him to educate her.. Also for ML marriage he wouldn't have cared if she married a beggar in the streets.. He just didn't care about ML at all period..

Oh I see. I guess it's when ML was giving birth to her son and the mansion was set on fire by GTY's stepmother that QH said that. Because he knew GTY wasn't with ML and someone should come to her rescue. 

@matrim  So I'm not the only one guessing that it was step mom that set fire to the hime fearing MK giving birth to a son which will cut her child out of having the nobke title all together.. She's the only one with motive to do something like this.. I just have to ask is justice brought to her for all her actions against GTY and ML..  

 

If the director has changed the novel this much I'm wondering what will they do with her character..

You make a good point about Molan's family they are supposed to be 1/2 richest but dont care to flaunt their wealth.. all Molan's husband cares about is sex not showing off.

I was just watching a MV of ML and i see a assassin pull out a dagger over what looks like a crib.. i wonder what that is about. 

 

https://krcom.cn/6109452047/episodes/2358773:4320219880214346

 

3.21 it looks like hes approaching a crib to me, also 03:34 is something we not seen before maybe that is where GTY regain's his fame. 

 

Also 2:08 QH surrounded by male's i wonder who they are , maybe general's or something and that scene follows GTY running which looks to be related to the fire scene. 

 

 

Some stuff i noticed after watching MV.

@ForgottenSoulx  GTY is a lot richer himself without the wealth of the Gu's I suppose GTY alone is richer the Liang family.. Molan was so worried about marrying into and establish household and becoming the first wife she for got to do her homework.. She just jump on the first man from and establish house that look her way.. 

 

Well guy's off to work chat with you later in the afternoon

Poor ml.. Can they just give her one day break.. Everyday she has to face virtous/devious stepmom, stupid/poisonous 4th auntie, clever/evil 5th auntie. 

Then, the Queen wanted to enter the round with the lame idea of gifting concubines for the hubby. Sorry, done that. Ml is an expert at dodging concubines gifting ceremony.. Ha ha. 

Later, new bride of an ex came to the house to create chaos. Give an ammunition for the aunts dearest to take a swipe at her.. Ha ha, never fear general gu at ml six. 

Who else? Kang auntie & danniang (dumb & devil duo), manic manniang and stepmom again, the ultimate white lotus. 

Pheww.. Ml better channel her inner chu qiao for strength, lu zhen for brilliance.. And shan shan cuteness for the husband.. :D

@leeza77 Thanks for the trailers.  Can't wait......looks like things are getting super intense now.  Gu elder brother has named GTY as his heir.  Did you guys see stepmom's face?  Looks like she just eaten a bad egg :joy:.  I am looking to her downfall.  She is even more evil than Linniang and Manniang.  I rewatched the trailers againa nd again and it is full of suspense.  I am glad I watched TSOML despites comments that it was slow paced etc etc etc.........

 

Though I must say all the villainous characters played their baddie roles so well.  Linniang, Manniang, Madame Kang, Molan, QH's wife, those Gu's aunties........
