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...)

 

Thanks for this info

OMG, I just watch ep 38 raw. Maybe I was reading into it too much, but during her talk with Rulan, Minglan did seemed a little sad that GTY propose to Rulan. I also love that she can't stand people talking bad about him, like everytime someone mention his bad reputation and bad personality, she just has to correct them and tell them he's a good guy. She was buttering him up so much, Rulan ended up saying: "If you think he's that good, then you marry him." :D so cute =))

 

The last bit where Big Madam rubbing it in Pingning's face was hilarious. I felt the secondhand embarrassment for Pingning, but Big Madam was so happy I couldn't stop laughing!

She even said something about GTY not being like others & didn’t mind....I felt petty to have liked that but boy did I like her getting turned down.

Big Madam was happy, forced or not, she was bragging about the 2 daughters of Sheng house getting married

I think she was. Even if she didn't say anything, I guess she thought he cared about her. But if he proposed to Rulan, it was like he didnt' find her enough for him. And he was one of the three people she would repay with her life.

The sadness wasn't even rational or conscious. It was very subtle the way she showed it with her eyes depite keeping it in control.

If gty didnt resolve into trickery, grandma would have fought him from marrying minglan. She’d probably make her marry doctor He that instant, or snuck her out of the city. 

But by making cb thinks it was RL, he put the Sheng family in an awkward position, he made it was RL’s fault for getting captured with the scholar, and now that the emperor knew his fav gty already proposed to the Sheng family, if words got out that the bethrotal is cancelled, Sheng’s house would have suffered great embarrassment, not to mention the emperor’s wrath 

 

Only poor cb got to witness the humiliation of capturing her sister:sweatingbullets:

 

I also dont have any pity for concubine lin and molan. CL isnt gray, she's black hearted. Grey is molan, scheming for her life, but CL took someone else’s life. Definitely a bad person with no redeeming quality. 

  Hide contents

And I think she got off easy, ML’s mom died of childbirth. One of the most excruciating death, CL should have at least suffer more for her wrongdoings

 

I see some here like RL’s character, I'm leaning on the dislike a bit, I just hate how she always mention illegitimate, knowing her place etc. Her sisterly love is limited

  Hide contents

She even admitted by her yielding the Liang family to ML, it will bring ML difficulties. And she said it with no compassion whatsoever. She’s not only spoiled but also entitled. Whenever ML give her something, she always mention how thoughtful of ML and how she knows her place. In her heart she doesnt think of ML as her sister. At least hualan is sincere, RL just think she’s doing a favor by getting along with ML. I dont remember her like this in the novel tho

Molan and Madam Liang also are at the polo match.I can't wait to see Molan get envious seeing how ML has moved up a few notches in status with a loving husband to boot.

Episode 40 was love. GTY told empress he was busy preparing the dowry for his bride & empress said that his bride was very lucky all the while looking at Minglan. She gave him a pin she was wearing to give his bride as her dowry & THE BEST PART WAS MOLAN,MAMA LIANG & GTY’S STEP MUM WERE THERE. Molan must be so jealous lmao. Anyone else feeling smug/petty?

Funny when ML walks away annoyed at GTY after his scheme :D . 41 will start with them talking alone. The scene with GTY bowing down to her and ML stars laughing. Then they return to the polo match where GTY is laughing loudly. Just my guess since it makes sense with preview scenes earlier and ML clothing.

The match will be an exciting one.It will be a treat to watch the uncomfortable and jealous faces of Molan and Madam Liang.I am looking fwd to it.

Women’s lot through history :Even a good man good could turn abusive, alcoholic, philandering, kick you out/ have you killed and take your kids and there was absolutely nothing you could do about it. Marriage  was a prison.

Concubine Lin used food as a weapon against Concubine Wei. Minglan used Concubine Lin's greed and ambition against her. Both were murderers even if they didn't weild a knife. What Minglan did to get revenge for mother was also reprehensible. 

 

There are no real villains or heroes in the backyard. Just women who were struggling to survive and they can for themselves and their children.

I loved it! She runs away when she sees him walking towards her and he turns back & comes at her in the opposite direction lol. I am so awaiting Molan’s reactions

Haha .. I watch today raw eps. So funny when Ming lan realize that GTY actually plan to marry ML instead of RL. 

GTY also know that ML was match with He hong wan from CB.

GTy also said he was so happy till can't sleep when know there cousin of he Hong Wan.  I think gty was the one who invite the cousin and make scene to cancel the engagement between ML and he Hong Wan..  Lol...
