Grandma on ml's side, judging the characters of her .. I guess there should be no problem 

I do agree. I think that now that grandma knows her grandchild is pregnant and TY is away on a mission, she will be behind ML all the way, even carry her if she could. She is not without power, she also is a Marquis daughter. Granny is humble and not showy like the other aristocrats but when necessary she will carry and show her weight as the daughter of nobility. She has got connections. She was the one who got the Countess of Wu to let go of making ML her daughter in law.

I am loving her sorry state.  I hope she will be severely punished and people know of her wicked deeds, get divorced from her husband and lose all respect from her peers.  To be humiliated beyond repair would ruin her more. That will hurt her more than just getting a few spanks.  That ending would have been too easy.  

 

Poor ML.  So heavily pregnant and still have to deal with those crooks left and right.  I love the way she wielded the sword.  I also love the way she took it out of her dad's hands so that his stading in the court will not be affected.  Auntie Kang has been acting outrageously.  She was lucky that her sister helped her financially but then again it became a given geste.  Like as if she is entitled because she is family.  SH's wife is indeed not very bright and easily manipulated.  I actually sympathized with her as she was not malicious.  She can be mean and at times petty protecting the interest of her own kids but she is not like totally evil.   Not little Linniang or her sister.   

 

There's a scene where ML is telling Da niang, what granny thinks about her after the poisoning....

ML told her she once asked granny why she choose Da niang for her father when Da niang is so narrow minded and mean. Granny told her Daniang may have a hundred things lacking but she has one thing that comes out very easily....that is she has a soft heart and she's not malicious. Even if you put a knife in her hand....she'll never ever think about taking a life with it.....

Da niang broke down after hearing that and regretted her actions and then helped ML set a trap for her sister.

But she was still stupid enough to think ML will forgive her after that. Even her own son knew his mother can not go punishment free if they wanted to have Kang Aunt punished.

Basically da niang's downfall was caused by her ignorance and stupidity.

Hopefully they stick to the novel or be even harsher with Aunt Kang’s public punishment if she is the one that tries to harm ML after birth. From trailers, it looks like the twist in the drama may be that Stepmom uses Aunt Kang instead of Maniang to make ML go into labor before the fire thing. If that’s the case, hopefully the punishment is public execution instead of imprisonment (in the novel she was tried and imprisoned for the poisoning so wasn’t involved in ML labor part I think). But then again, her going to prison for life stewing over the fact that her and Kang family are publicly ruined might be good too, but don’t ever want her to have the chance to ever be freed. Never mind, she doesn’t have a conscience to reflect on, so execution if she touches ML or baby! She’s killed too many people.

I've been waiting for scheming ml to comeback for so long! Yingbao better bring out her inner chu qiao to exact revenge on the aunt kang and the whole wang family

 

Spoiler

The confrontation with the wang family is one of the most frustrating part of the novel for me. How can some people be so shameless :mask:

Could someone remind me why we haven't seen GTY for a few eps?

He accompanied the Prince on Salt inspections since none of the other Generals were able to. All part of ED’s schemes to create chaos between the Emperor and his trusted Generals. I hope that Guifei gets punished later for being a part of ED’s plots.

@leeza77  Danning told on her own self all that sqimming she was doing in that chair.. She didn't even look upset after learning Aunt Kang gave her poision.. More like she was scared to tell where she got it from.. She should be thanking ML because she knows this wasn;t her plan to harm Granny.. Danning and those servants are seeing first hand of Granny results in raising ML.. All of them never knew she had this side to her the servant even had the gall to talk smart and got her face slap into next week.. One can all guess the others start talking and not holding anything back..

  Hide contents

Now who was the other old lady ? ws aunt kang trying to frame her.. Also who was the women next to aunt kang husband.. I hope thwy don't let her walk out of that house without being punished because she'll try and kill ML after being served by a concubine daughter

 

I think it was Mrs Kang's mum?  They called her to tell her about the wrong doings of her precious daughter.  The woman next to Mr Kang is his favourite concubine I believe.  So for Auntie Kang, it is a huge face slap. No doubt the Kang concubine is having a good laugh :joy:

 

I love ML in her fierce mode.  Not letting any stones unturned in her quest for justice.

He was sent to a mission.  Since General Shen and Duan have been framed and "under investigation" (house arrest ...? ) he was the only one that close enough to the emperor to be sent out.

Read all the comments to my earlier post 

 

William Feng cannot act, not only this drama but others too,,,, 

Ice fantasy for example,,, i guess he just a lucky guy being famous and always gets main role but comparing to other lead star he just so so. As GTY in ming lan, his emotion whether angry sad or happy always like B rating, nothing special to caption attention

 

I am a fan of chinese drama so i have seen many dramas 

 

 

 

I always find that once you go down the path of stating a firm decision, others will either defend their favorite actor to death or will be a little bit confused. I think, in this case, I’m in the camp of being confused. Trolling or not that is the question? :phew:

Im confused because in my opinion you never really stated your reasons why you consider William Feng to be a B actor. You did state his emotions are stagnant I believe. But a little bit of advice you need to develop your arguments a little bit more ie. state episodes, etc. Because otherwise we can’t do a proper debate! The horror !:cold_sweat:

It appears that the evil stepmom is having Fengxian (the unwanted concubine) spy for them.  She is basically giving them the news on ML. :rage:

@frenchfan  That was the plan from the get go.. I thought ML should have sent Aunt Kangs daughter to 3rd brother to be his concubine maybe send her to the 5th house since Aunt Kang was so determine to put her step daughter into the Gu house..

The Spoiled Concubine Getting Her Just Desert:

Thats Right Eunich Slap The Taste Buds Out Of Her Mouth..

 

Served her right.  This will hopefully make her less bratty next time and think of the consequences behind her actions.  I wonder what her brother's punishment be since he is also responsible?

I was rewatching the episodes and I must say that the royal consort - Guifei is very conniving.  Acting all innocent but spreading seeds of doubts.  I hope to see her downfall next :rage: Her actions are just so calculated.  I just want Prince Duan and all the loyal people come back to clear this nest of vipers!  Poor GTY, never a moment of peace!

@mooose I think she did let her in the house.. Step Mom seemed all to happy about this outcome.

 

@shem1  Explain this to me, Someone went after her after birth, It could be the girl that was talking to Big Mdm at the end of episode 58 they both of similar height and weight.. She was the girl telling Big Mdm when when second master return that he'll take care of them and not to take matters to heart.. 

I thought the girl talking to Stepmom was Cuiway. It was their way of warning Stepmom that she can’t try anything in retaliation to Chang Momo for speaking her mind.

@frenchfan His punishment should be death.. Keeping her alive if he's killed will cost them later because she'll always see it as they kill her brother of course to no fault of her on..

 

I also want to see the Guifei get the royal concunbine smak down. The ED exile out of the palace and everyones life will be peaceful.

 

I'm Still think about Chang MoMo giving Aunt Kang Lip Service.. It's just to hilarious:w00t:

MoMo told Aunt Kang:

We kind to you because you related to the maiden home

But you really thought you was some sort of dish :w00t::w00t:  

Your Kang family is merely related to the Sheng inlaws

You many loops away from the Gu house:w00t::w00t::wub:

You come here and charge yourself as a Elder or what not..

The Big Mdm is waiting for the Lil Mdm to add more children to the Gu house..

(Big Mdm Mad as hell now for her saying that:rage:):w00t::w00t:

Now everyone in the world knows Lil Mddm is with child

Not to even mention close friends..

Even the maiden home the legit mother and gran mother don't come

to bother her and allow her to nurse her pregnancy but come now..

Here comes and Aunt with and unknown face and dog mouth:w00t::w00t:

Putting up airs in three days to charge herself as boss:w00t: I spit a that (ROLF)

If something goes wrong with the marquis off spring,

Can those bones of yours weighing a couple of tales pay for it :w00t::w00t::w00t:

(Aunt Kang just speechless This was all you seen from her and Big Mdm :blink::blink::blink:)

MOMO: what the hell is that: 

Did someone in the family die

No one rushes to a funeral that diligently:wub::wub::wub: (priceless)

(Other words ML isn't dead why you rushing your azz here as soon as you wake up two or three times a day what the hell is that):w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t:  This scene is just priceless.. The dialogue is off the hook..  You better open your eyes this not the Kang House this is the Gu House. By Now Aunt Kang And Big Mdm Are Looking Like This:o:o:o:crazy::crazy::crazy:

 

I applaud the writer for this, This is one of the best written scene and dialogue I've seen in a drama in a long time..Bow My Head To You.

 

Laughing so hard i was in tears almost peed my pants

@hello210  That was Cuiwie, well I didn't see things from this prospective..  But she didn't have to tell her that in regards to Chang MoMo. Big Mdm already know not to touch Chang Momo or they all will be homeless if she did it or had someone else to do it.. Chamg Momo has no enemies but the Gu house oh yes now Aunt Kang to..:w00t:
