    Thank you for sharing the original script ending! It does make more sense than the drama ending. But I don't blame the film crew for this because the original ending was apparently removed due to censorship.


    This drama felt dragged especially in the beginning in Zhao. It got mildly better when they were in Qin but by the last few episodes, I already lost interest in all the characters. Sad to say but I grew more and more annoyed at Hao Lan and she got less and less screen time. Her son also made me irritable because of his unstable personality. I am not alone when I read Youtube comments in thinking that the actor's exaggerated facial expressions was a bit overdone and made him seem psychotic. Same for Lao Ai.


    But the good part of this drama is it made me research about the real history of the characters. Reading about Qin Shi Huang made me think maybe his crazy personality was justified as he was noted for being cruel... I also like the creative liberty that the screenwriter took regarding the scandals and rumors in history. As regular commoners, rumors are circulated and we still don't know today as to what really happened behind close doors due to a lack of written records. So it was nice to see what really "could've" happened in regards to Hao Lan and Lao Ai.

    yeah after YR dies, the script went down the drain.  Plus the actor who potrayed Qin Shi Huang did a bad job

    I don't know how I ended up in this forum after few months. Maybe cause I just log in soompi again and saw few notifications coming from this forum. 


    I won't elaborate more. Bottom line is, I really dislike this drama wholeheartedly. I regret ever watching it. The only good thing I take from it is Nie Yuan's fantastic acting and LBW being my favourite character. Haolan is annoying. I just couldn't buy her story arc at all. 

    LOL.  I like the series mainly becuase LBW, YR, XC, BZ and some other of the supporting casts carried the drama well.    However, I do agree Haolan was weakly written.  Supposedly smart but not so smart at times.  Annoying .... yes at times but not as much as Princess Ya.  She's like a fly, you keep swatting her and she's still around.  She's even more annoying than HL and she has so much screen time. 


    I like the entire story arc and concept, just that plot lines and characters are not that well written and inconsistent.

    I think after BZ found XC and the two children, they ended up together. After all, he had been assisting Haolan in helping YZ achieve the full power of a King so I think XC would forgive him. 

    Yeah i think so too they ended up together.  He would have pursued her or last resort kidnap her again.  Anyway, if he did not have a downfall, don't think XC will be with him at all for all that arrogance and domineering personality.  After his redemption, there is at least worth in him for her to be with him. 

    On a side note, do think that she is a bit contradicting at the earlier stages.  For all her hatred of BZ,  but somehow she no longer has intent to kill him and have been following him around, taking care of his sis and staying at his house (weird how she can tolerate living there) and allowing him to boss her around.  If her mission is to save more patients, there are many other ways to go about.  She doesn't need to live with him.  And when HL asked her about him she said there's nothing to mention, but she's ok for all the gossips to go about.  

    Do you guys think she has feelings for him before?  When he confronted her she did not directly say no but just brush it off.  Of cos her love for HL is greater than anyone, but did she?

    @bLaZe2 I was intrigued too. The transitions in their relationship can be a little abrupt at times. I wonder if any of their scenes were cut because of the adjustments they made to Hao Lan and Lu Buwei's storyline.

    Maybe.  The whole drama highlight was HL-BW or HL-YR.  However, I don't know why they bother to build up XC-BZ relationship when there is no ending for them.  They started out really hating each other but over time they grow close together.  BZ made it clear he has a thing for XC.  As for XC, had he not been on the wrong path or not so arrogant she may have been with him too.  I think she does not realise she also has affections for him as she's a strong woman with no intention of marrying and her lifelong pursuit is to heal many people.  If there is nothing, their relationship should have ended when he rebelled, but the show continued to tease with him confessing his longing for her, turning over a new leaf and aiding HL, plus their last scene together they also have longing looks with some backgroud music. And after that no ending.  XC is a strong supporting characters, there should be a storyline closure for her.  They even bothered with story closure for the dowagers, but not her.   What's your thoughts?
