Maybe someone already explained this and I missed it, but is there a reason why all the girl's name end in "Lan"?

Families usually had one same word given to all children of the same generation. For example Sheng family daughters had Lan, sons had Chang (Chang Bai, Chang Feng), Gu family sons had Ting (Gu Ting Ye, Gu Ting Wei...)

Spoiler

Loved it. When granny cried I was moved, she was letting her baby go. It's so hard. She would feel alone-

 

These bits show the chemistry between GTY and ML, they seem to laugh a lot together. And the way he looks at her, so much love

Trailer for episode 41

https://m.weibo.cn/detail/4329584860041443

 

it looks like in today’s episode they became betrothed. In tomorrow’s episode GTY will send the  dowry & then the marriage

 

I google translated grandma & Ml convo and what I got was

ML: I am not afraid of him being bad but I am afraid of life/him being too good

Grandma: Nonsense, you had me until now & now you are marrying someone with an indomitable spirit. Good days are just beginning 

 

correct me me if I am wrong please...

 

Rulan & Minglan convo was cute

Episode 38 raw has Big Madam turning down QH’s mum

Love how minglan’s real temper has emerged to the surface again. That feisty little girl minglan hasn’t actually gone, she was just sleeping under the calm peaceful older minglan :tears:

I just want to point out minor error in your post regards to GTY, his father and spear dance. GTY got failed the exam by emperor is not because he went drinking after the exams and criticized imperial scholar.  When he was 12, he told his older brother at the study of their house that emperor punishment of the scholar (forget the name), by not letting him pass the imperial palace exam till after he was 50 for visiting brothels and entertainment centers a lot, was not fair. His older brother then let emperor know about GTY's criticism towards the emperor somehow. 

 

Thank you for the clarification. You are correct.

However TY's dad had believed what was told him that GTY was drunk and mouthed off and sister in law cried before dad when GTY went to confront him, that her husband was innocent and GTY was bullying her poor sickly husband and the sick brother denied, denied, denied and made it look like it was GTY who was wanting to harm his siblings and cousins. At this time daddy had found out about the "singer he was keeping."

Does he actually say he won’t have any concubines? I read somewhere that he promised her.

Also, it looks like Minglan knew about QH’s visit to her house. She saw from her window. According to Weibo she said ‘We can never look back’ or something

I got  this too. She was afraid of everything going too well.  I find it sad. ML has a hard life and now she fears being happy and  everything going well.

This is why I think she won't show him his feelings, she is scared of everything changing or him letting her down.

I can understand ML holding back in the beginning and being scared. It's not easy being a woman in that time period. She has also lived a hard life and been let down and humiliated. Once they begin their married life she will slowly see GTY's action instead of empty words.

True.  She's been let down by both QH and Dr. He.  Probably doesn't want to get her hopes up that such a great guy wants to marry her.  With QH she was already reaching (according to the social norms) and got burned badly.  The men in her life tends to over promise and under deliver.

 

In the carriage ride with Grandma, ML was already talking about how she was planning to provide for herself if she never gets married. Both ML and Granny looked so sad.
