Divorce & not a separation? Fat chance of that happening! GTY will give up the Marquis position than give up ML...or maybe it’s because of this he asks for a separation? (Seeing as the father’s will might put him in danger)

Well the translation is not clear.. Some translate it as divorce, some translate it as break. He's faced problem (imprisonment) i think becoz he took emperor seal from the queen and gave it to the new emperor. The new emperor has no power as the seal was in the hands of the queen. The queen was furious and sentence him according to martial law.. That the spoiler i read over weibo..

@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........

 

Im glad Gu elder brother is finally waking up.

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

  Reveal hidden contents

She didn't go to the gu jia for the info but to tattle about ml past with dr he.

Is GTY not satisfied with ML's eye brows?, he kept wanting to 'thicken' them :lol:

 

Spoiler

Concerning QH's new wife, not sure who's worse..QH who can't let go of the past or the wife who decided to look into his past, there's a saying that goes 'what u don't know won't hurt u'...this marriage is bound to fail due to her resentment.

Well I hope that QH will tell her off.  Getting into fit of jealousy and bringing up the past is just stirring for trouble  What an idiotic woman. By doing this, QH will be reminded again grrrrrrrrrrrrrr:triumph:

QH suggests the King to investigate those who helped with the rebellion earlier. He wasn't aiming for GTY, he was just doing his job as an official. In the book the investigation also happened however the one who suggested it was never mentioned. The book was written from ML's POV so it was less about the politics cuz she wasn't in a position to observe everything. In the book QH didn't appear much in the story after ML's marriage but QH and GTY are working at the same place so it would be unreasonable if he just disappear. In the book ML only knew what was happening in the government through GTY, so she didn't know about QH, but obviously QH had to be there since he worked there. I guess the screenwriter had his/her own objectives for QH later, but it would be minor.

 

GTY's cousins (and later also half-brother) got caught up in the investigation, bc they were actually involved in the rebellion. GTY is actually secretly happy inside that they were detained since they used to bullied him when he was younger. It's really satisfying for him seeing them drowned in fear and begging him to save them (Although he says they bother him) and later he would use this as a leverage to bring down all his relatives. 

 

About QH's wife, not sure how far she would go since her character has already strayed from the book so I can't guess how big her part would be, but to this point she is rather stupid. If I were her, I would wish ML's marriage would be supper happy then ML would never look back to QH again. She got nothing to gain by sabotaging ML's family but a lot to lose were things found out. She's out of her rational mind. QH's mother has really bad eyes in choosing a daughter in law.

Why did they remove the views?  Also, how are the ratings as compared to Yanxi Palace, just curious.?

Oh we knew that about QH's mom already.  She's one of those people that thinks title and breeding is everything.  What about character?  If QH's first marriage wasn't a complete FUBAR and the fact that they no longer have that much favor with the new emperor, she would never have lowered herself to go to the Sheng House for Minglan.

 

If Minglan had actually had married QH, the mom would still look down upon her and treat her badly no matter how much she tries to be a good wife/daughter in law.  ML would have to behave how she behaved in the Sheng House, constantly trying not to offend anyone and putting everyone's wants and needs above her own.

Views can be manipulated aka the best viewed drama is 10 miles of peach blossoms with over 50 billion view's. 

Spoiler


Story of Yanxi Palace was on another level and sold to 70 countries, it holds the highest single day viewership in China at 530m view's.  It has 15 billion views apparently i think Story of Ming Lan most likely could have easily beat that if so many site's did not remove views.  iQiyi stopped releasing views but said Yanxi hit 15 billion views? its quite odd. 

 

Yanxi also holds the highest the highest viewing record for the mainland drama on the TVB.

And those vicious harpies went to GTY to "reveal" the truths but luckily GTY was like "they didn't get engaged, they had an undestanding but if I did not interfere, she would have really become his wife" Jaw dropped.......:joy:  He burst their bubbles :joy:

@leeza77 My guess he wants his wife a child protected and wife still to carry the title of his,, He got a lot of nerve. Why should he become Father to his niece.. I'm sure GTY and ML would see to it that she marries well.. Some widows were sent back to there family homes back then so she could re-marry out and yet she's trying to cling on to her title.. I don't know who is the worst her or evil Mdm.. She was so worried about GTY taking her husbands title when it was his to begin with.. Now to marry the same brother she help plot against not thinking ahead when her husband past what kind of safety net she or her husband has in plan for them.. GTY should them both to kick cans.. How dare they suggest to divorce his wife unbelievable.. It's sounds to me that his wife is and opportunist use the title to force him to divorce and she gets to keep her position.. Why even stay with the GU's when she don't have a son any way.. This is the time to run to the border away from all this crazy mess but yet she wants to stay because of a title get real will ya.. I wouldn't be suprised if step mom had those servants feeding her something that may have caused her not to get pregnant ever again..

How did QH's wife even find this out? 

@ForgottenSoulx  She found those dolls that QH had for him and ML.. Both initials or nanes were on the very bottom of the porcelin dolls which he had pck away very nicely..

None of these idle rich women have anything better to do with their lives... they can’t have a career,  they can’t be formally educated, they don’t actually run the household or even raise their own children. They can’t even depend on a husbands support and soul devotion. The only thing left is scheme and make trouble for each other. 

 

Pitiful.
