The stupidest, most out of character minglan would do, actually meeting qh in secret AT a banquet??????? Yooooo I feel like throwing shoes at minglan (and the scripwriter) right now

Did QH ask for a meeting or was it initiated by ML because of his wife?

Based on the sneak peak, I think ML is the one who wants to meet QH. So I think she asked XT to arranged the meeting during the banquet.

Woah..Now i understand y the big 'fight' between GTY & ML that u guys were discussing and anticipating..ML initiated a secret meeting with QH and that's a no-no especially when ppl know about their history, i mean what if somebody else and not GTY found out first (GTY did saw them first, right?)..oh wow ML, that was a really stupid move even if she was doing for her husband's benefit.

Dr. He said the same thing but caved to maternal pressure in only a few days. This is an era where you could not always say no to gifts like servants and concubines depending on the giver and circumstances. ML's own mother was a gifted concubine from the Wang family. 

 

ML knows that he might have to take concubines into the household in the future simply because they can't escape it and his heart might be moved by another woman in the future.

 

 

 

Dr He is Dr He. GTY is GTY. im sure if they gave gty girls, he wont even touch them if they must really force him and he really gotta take them.

Exactly.. ML was being stupid thinking QH is still the same guy he was and also thinking as long as she is doing it for her husband, it's OK like girl.. You are th one that has being claiming about your husband taking a concubine since it's common in that Era and you are now secretly meeting with the person the whole society knows about your past in that Era.. What the richard simmons was she thinking 

But somehow for ML to do something this stupid fro someone so smart, and it's also for GTY low-key, shows she loves him as much to behave childishly.. Interesting

Ep51 & 52 Just watched it raw and DAEBAK!

 

I wouldn't mind some dialogue spoilers on the ML-SH fight.

 

I wonder what our romantic playboy 6th Liang discovers about his wife when he interrogates that maid? That he was played by another player and she's killing his babies? Bet he's regretting marrying that whiny Molan now. Loved the look on his face when ML the chopsticks.  He called her a 'block' before and now discovers she's a firecracker.

Spoiler

Seem ml asked xiatao to arrange the meet.. I guess it was spurred from ml's mtg with qh's wife. She just want to warn qh that both of them has married. Forget about her. She's already move on with her life and he should have done so. Besides, now she's his elder.

I agree; she just accept that without asking her heart. she don't want to li_e to her self; she is a women in this area who shoulld accept the rules.

She dont want to lie to her self? Well she is low key lying to herself then by accpecting her man to take girls and she lowkey love gty. Is this not lying to herself also?

Doesnt matter, meeting qh alone is already a major mistake, meeting him at a banquet filled with aristocrats??? The repercussions of it should have made minglan trembled with fear

I dont know what sort of reasoning ml would have to justify her meeting qh in private, smart ml wouldnt do that. See this is what I mean when I said even when ml suffers, gty would probably suffer twice as hard. Her intention might be noble, but the implication would have been so severe, not only socially, but personally for gty. 

 

Let me just go poison grandma so we can have that heart to heart talk already  :skull:

Well said chingu @ForgottenSoulx... I believe she is in love with GTY. She is showing all the signs but Guess!!  what she hasn’t realized it yet. Ming Lan has major major major trust issues. I think even if she knows she is I love with him, her fear of telling him will be like giving away her weaknesses. Like some you said she is afraid, her moms last request when she died is always on her mind and her grandmother’s teaching is very much a part of her. I think Ming Lan’s Real problem is that people change and trusting someone ‘s word at face value is a big risk. In order for her to take that big step , GTY needs to show his own weakness to her. Some of you will say he has shown his weakness but I don’t think he has truly shown his weakness that meaningful to Ming Lan. 

We should all remember he has never told her he Loves her but he has shown her how much he loves but for Ming Lan seeing is believing. Meaning he needs to risk something that is valuable to him for her to take that leap. 

 

Does this make sense???? 

Gty own weakness is minglan. Thats why he said he lost to her all this lifetime something like that. I dont know why GTY must have to risk something valuable for ML to believed him. Up till now GTY has always been caring and loving to ML. Doesn't this already means a lot? To me it is. If ML realized then she will and gty wont have to risk it. But she dont. ML is too traumatize.

What you said is correct but I guess some sort of a love triangle seems to be liked by audiences so dramas do insert that somehow.

 

From the trailer looks like the banquet  was at ML's residence so she might have been confident of the meeting remaining a secret.

Omg that's too much stupidity at once.. In her husband's house, in that Era! With someone she had a past with.. Secretly.. There are a lot of wrongs to this seriously.. It's almost as if she doesn't even respect GTY if other people sees it, which is not true.. Omg i feel so bad for GTY... Someone as calculating as ML should have not risk this at all, no matter what.. Omg omg.. In their house, that's the most foolish part of this all..

For me it's not even love triangle because there is actually no jealousy but there is anger from GTY that she doesn't even consider his feelings.. Even though he knows and understands ML he is just angry she still sees him just as someone she wants to repay and she still behaves so virtously, which is somehow not her true self with him, and not saying everything to him....

LMAO....ROTFL:joy:

Oh my....but I low key agree....lets start the fight already....so ML tells him get off her back....the person she loves the most is herself. 

Just to let you know the fight/heart to heart continued over a period of time .....and is divided into 3 parts....the last part happens after granny's poisoning. Only the first part is the fight....
